Aquarius 2013 Horoscope
Classical Zodiac sign astrology forecast
If Aquarius is your zodiac sign, you've had several very inspiring years, where your imagination has been sparkling, frequently revealing new perspectives and bringing many ideas. The year 2013, though, it's more about struggle and making something out of it.
This is because at the start of 2013 Uranus has just left Aquarius, while Mars has entered the sign. This gives you energy, demanding to spring into action. Certainly, after the inspiring years, you have lots of ideas about what to do with that energy.
Still, in your case action may very well refer to thoughts and discussions, with the purpose of reaching conclusions or convincing others that you already have. In 2013, you as an Aquarian are triggered to fight for your ideas and push for the change that they suggest.
Mars in AquariusMars is particularly active and important for Aquarius in 2013, because of its aspects to three other parts of the horoscope.
It has a sextile to Uranus in the beginning of Aries, showing that your mind is still engaged in its philosophical quest, but now particularly eager to reach conclusions, make decisions, and reaching the awareness you have spent years searching for.
So, you act with a goal, and that goal has recently dawned on you. It's all about becoming wiser, and you've understood that it demands acting on your thoughts.
Mars in Aquarius also has a trine to Jupiter in Gemini - again suggesting creative thinking and reaching success by it. Whatever ideas you may have fondled in the recent past, don't hesitate to make them real. Now is a good time for it. The year 2013 will serve you as an Aquarius plenty of opportunities to make something out of many things you have on your mind.
It may be difficult at first to succeed with your ideas, because Jupiter is at Retrograde when 2013 begins. But that will change, so you will soon find that the initial problems just made you more committed and resourceful when opportunities appear.
Finally, Mars has a trine to the Ascendant of the 2013 New Year world horoscope, but that's not exactly related to your personal life as an Aquarius. Nonetheless, it will give you a strong sense of aiming in a direction that society as a whole would agree with, as if your quest can bring rewards not only to you, but to your surroundings. In any case, the people you meet and deal with in 2013 are sympathetic to your efforts, willing to help if they can, and expressing agreement with your goals.
Aspects to AquariusSome planets have aspects to your Aquarius sign, though not to Mars in it. Therefore, their influences are vaguer and less certain, but at times through 2013 you will experience their influence.
Venus in Sagittarius is in sextile to the Aquarius sign, bringing ease to your efforts when they lead to changes in your life. That will surely convince you to make some such changes before the year 2013 is over. They will lead to your life from then on being different, but probably not in major ways. Refreshing, nonetheless.
Saturn and the Moon Node in Scorpio are in square to Aquarius in 2013. That causes some drama and uncertainties that you have to suffer to get over. Unpredicted events cause you some anxiety and concern. Nothing very serious, but still getting to you at times. You may experience some emotional ups and downs, fearing that you are unable to fulfill your duty.
At New Year 2013, the moon in Leo is in opposition to Aquarius. That means your year starts with ambiguous feelings, even a lack of trust in yourself. But it's a mood more than a fact, so it will pass without you having to do anything particular about it.
Generally speaking, 2013 is a very good year for you as an Aquarius to make reality of thoughts you've nourished for long. Go ahead. It will lead to good things.
