August 2020

Saturn retrograded back out of Aquarius last month, just three weeks before the Sun returned to your relationship sector and this was a win/win for both you and your relationships. While Saturn had only been in Aquarius for three and a half months, his departure wrapped up seven months of planetary activity that had begun with Venus' return in December. You had the whole first half of the year to update your needs and priorities so that when the Sun turned the solar spotlight onto your relationships, which he does at the same time each year Saturn was gone but the benefits were banked. With Saturn gone there was no chance of the two clashing but because you know what your needs are from the get go, you began with a head start when it comes to knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. The Moon's return to Aquarius from 3rd August to 5th August and the Full Moon this will create on 4th August will see it clash with the Sun, stress testing a balance between your personal and relationship needs. However, not only is this more a reminder with Mercury, the planet of communication returning to your relationship sector on 5th August he will return to ensure the communication lines are open. Meanwhile, held back by a retrograde phase that has kept Venus in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart for the last four months, Venus will finally leave on 8th August. Returning three days after Mercury leaves your work sector to focus on your relationships, she will step into his still warm seat. Not leaving until early next month, Venus will spend the rest of the month fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. With most of the hard work done and with support from Neptune and Ceres in your income sector, Venus should be successful.


Week beginning Monday 3rd of August 2020

Despite the fact that Tuesday's Full Moon might create some personal and/or relationship tension this is an important milestone in your year. This is the Full Moon that will always fall in Aquarius at the halfway point in your current solar year, halfway between your last birthday month and the next. With the Sun always on the opposite side of the sky in your relationship sector, this will see your personal and relationship needs clash but in a way that is designed to wake you up to your own needs, with a chance to push the 'reset' button. This year it comes just a month after Saturn retrograded back out of Aquarius so you are not usually as in touch with your personal power as you are this year. Tension will drop when the Moon leaves on Wednesday and it is just minutes later that Mercury, the planet of communication will return to your relationship sector in order to give anything triggered a voice.


Monday 3rd of August 2020

The number of balance issues you are dealing with doubles today, but a chance to get both sorted and behind you within the next 48 hours. Mercury is spending his final two days in your work sector at odds with Saturn in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, in what is the final check to ensure you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. This comes just as the Moon returns to Aquarius ahead of a Full Moon that will put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test.

About Aquarius

Information about your birth sign


Aquarius is the eleventh zodiac sign, and the last of the clever and intellectual air signs. You are traditionally ruled by Saturn, and co-ruled by Uranus in modern day. Uranus is new, quirky and non-conformist. You like new, quirky and non-conformist, so it's a good fit.

The other planets are all named after Roman Gods, Uranus is named after a Greek one. The planets all orbit a certain uniform way, but not Uranus, because its axis of rotation is tilted sideways. All very unique, but then so are you!

You are the thinker and the humanitarian of our zodiac. You have an independent, eccentric, inventive and original spirit and usually no desire whatsoever to conform. You're happy to be different.

Your outlook is futuristic but, if Mercury is close to your Sun, you can be quite unchanging in your opinions. You have difficulty grasping the viewpoints of others, once you've made your mind up, like the other fixed signs, little can change it.

Yours is a fixed sign, change doesn't always come easy, so there's a dilemma. You're inventive, you want to discover new and different ways of doing things, but then you might find that you're not too keen to adapt and try them.

Aquarius rules over our wider associations and the groups that we belong to, and you're sure to belong to a group of a club. You're innately a team player, you feel energised and happy when you're part of the crowd. Some say that you're difficult to get close to, you're not inclined to discuss your feelings, although you're knowledgeable and happy to discuss everything and anything else.

You can be eccentric, idealistic and unpredictable, but as a friend or partner, you are friendly, faithful, unswerving and steadfast. You're not shallow in your affections but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve either. You love truly and deeply, you don't feel the need to voice sentiment often but you're generous to those you love and your gifts are often well chosen, if not inspired.

There are many professions you might enjoy, none of them are solitary. You prefer to work independently at whatever you do, you don't like to have anyone watching over your shoulder, but you do prefer to work as part of a team. You're probably popular among your co-workers.

Technology and computers belong to your sign, yet your symbol is a man pouring water from an Urn. Water is the source of life, and in older pictures, the man was often represented as an angel. Perhaps an Aquarian artist changed the angel to an old man, because you can be an angel and modest about it.

You get along best with the other air signs, Gemini and Libra, and also well with the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Although the other planets in your horoscope will all have their say and mitigate how you express your Aquarius energy and who you get along well with.
