Aquarius in Love 2019Romance doesn’t seem a big issue this year, as we have mentioned. Four out of the five long-term planets are in the Eastern sector of your chart – the sector of the self and of personal interests. Your 7th house is basically empty, with only short-term planets moving through there this year. So personal interests are more important than relationships.
As we mentioned, the past two years were very powerful love and social years. Many of you married or got involved in serious love relationships. Thus there’s no longer a need to focus on romance. You seem content with the status quo. Thus married couples will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single.
Romance and social activities might not be prominent, but the sex life seems hyperactive. As in most things, you’re experimental in this area. The Sun is your love planet and he is a fast-moving planet. In any given year he moves through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope. Thus there are many short-term trends in love, depending on where the Sun happens to be and the kind of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
There will be two solar eclipses this year. These will tend to shake up the love life and current relationship. You go through this every year, so it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of a relationship. It only shows that dirty laundry is brought out to be washed, to be corrected. Hidden flaws in the relationship make themselves known so that corrections can be made. Solid relationships tend to survive and get even better. It’s the shaky ones that are in danger. These solar eclipses are on March 9 and September 1, and we will discuss them more fully in the monthly reports.
The Sun as the love planet shows that you like strength in a lover – someone prominent such as an athlete, celebrity or entertainer. You can be ‘star struck’ when it comes to love. You like authority figures, and you like to rebel against them. It is almost like some personal romantic dance that you have. Attract the authority figure, and then defy the authority.
The area of friendship also seems less active than usual. We have mentioned this earlier. Your tendency is to attract myriads of friends. But every now and then there is a need to prune them. To separate the real ones from the unreal ones. This is what’s going on now. (It started last year.) Better to have fewer friends, but good ones, than hosts of lukewarm friends.
In astrology we have a simple definition of a real friend. This is someone who wishes for you your ‘fondest hopes and wishes’ and is willing to assist in the process. This will guide you in the coming year. I have heard another good definition of a friend – but it’s not astrological. ‘A true friend is someone who rushes in when everyone is rushing out.’
It is great to be involved in groups and organizations. Networking is one of your natural strengths. But here too some pruning is necessary. You can’t be involved in every group. You have to be more discerning. You have to separate the important from the unimportant.
