Your Aquarius Side and Friendships to 2023

If you have a stellium in Aquarius (more than three factors in that zodiac sign) then your Eleventh House of friendships and groups is unusually packed. What happens to those friendships when Saturn, Jupiter and then Pluto all pass through Aquarius? Have friends been lost, or has the friendship changed? That’s typical of this long cycle.

Ghislaine, the Royals, Trump and Leo Eclipses

Astrology forecasts made before an historic chain of eclipses chimed with predictions of drama for the Royal Family, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump – and a strange twist of fate involving Lolita. Published so long ago that Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein were still unknown to the public, they now suggest July-August 2021 is a time of reckoning. Meghan, Harry, Kate and William have also been drawn into the astrological timeline. How do the Leo eclipses pan out in 2021 and 2022?

  1. Happy February and Valentines to you, Jessica!

    Thank you again for your generosity in helping us navigate through life!

    I only have one planet Ceres at 24 degrees in Aquarius, but when you mentioned “flashbacks” coming from 1999, I totally went into panic mode.

    1998-2000 were the ROUGHEST years on record for me. I went through a horrible divorce (me ex did NOT want it) so he made my life miserable! He had a lawyer, I did not. He took the money, had to sell the house etc. My kids who were of adult age (18, 20) went through their most defiant phases of all time.

    I broke my ankle and it never healed properly. I had never felt so lost mentally or financially, but yet was completely exhilarated at my new found freedom! My ex and I had been together since 16 yrs old and I had already been married 20yrs when we divorced, still being in our 30’s.

    Needless to say there is nothing about 1999 I want a “flashback” from!! Unless I am due some positive karmic reward for all the suffering I went through.

    Do you see anything good or worrisome in my chart, so I can brace myself?

    Either way I have your wisdom to help guide me and I know I can weather a storm.
    I was so alone my go-round in 1999.

    Many Thanks and Blessings to you!

    1. Thank you and Happy Valentine’s Day. 1999 and 2000 sound gruelling for you, with a divorce, difficult children and a broken ankle. This would not have been the Nodes, but Saturn in Taurus, opposing your Scorpio stellium in the Eighth House, which of course rules deadly serious finances, but also sexually binding property, possessions and money. In short, you had one Saturn hit after another, which could only happen every 29 years. You will be thrilled to hear that from October 2017, Jupiter goes through Scorpio bringing healing, help, closure, breakthroughs, opportunities and open doors. By 2018 you will have been given one stunning chance after another to make it work with others – on whatever level you’re looking for.

      1. Thank you again for being such a beacon of hope!

        Your gift for making sense of the confusing has been priceless!

        Sincerest Regards!

  2. Hi Jessica

    When you say “rewind” could it also include the rewinding of a decision made in either late 1998 or early 1999? Would the repeat be more likely to be the repeat of the same circumstances that led to that decision, in other terms, a repeat of the same flawed attitudes, or more optimistically could it perhaps be a repeat in terms of a renewed chance to get things right this time?

    I’m thinking specifically about a very beautiful 5 year relationship that I suddenly, and rather stupidly, ended (pig-headed youth!) and have regretted ever since. Circumstances have opened a possibility (we’ve both divorced over the past two years) but after an initially encouraging start there is little movement at the other end at the moment…

    Also, how crucial would the timing be on this? If we broke up late 1998, rather than 1999 itself, would that be a different deal astrologically, or is there some leeway there? I didn’t keep a diary and now it’s hard to work out exactly when we broke up – I have a letter somewhere that has the date on it that I need to find.

    Thanks as always.

    1. Thank you Faye. I didn’t ask all you Leo stellium people to come in with your relationship questions, but funnily enough you are all picking up on it. You have a big Leo signature in the Fifth House of your chart which rules courtship, the royal bedchamber, the heirs to the throne and pretenders to the throne. I was in the National Portrait Gallery this morning looking at the lives and loves of so many Regency monarchs, taking notes – because they are all Leo/Fifth House types. The True North Node moved into Leo in October 1998 and was there through 2000. You two knew each other in a past life. With this person, or with another who brings similar themes, you will explore what you need to learn (but also be rewarded by) from May 2017 when yet again we see the Node back in Leo.

      1. Gosh that’s interesting.

        Firstly, I never noticed the Leo stellium in my chart until now you’ve pointed it out – I’ve always focused on the Scorpio/Sag/Aquarius stelliums instead.

        Secondly, the “royal” aspects of Leo/5th house EXACTLY describe my former partner and the reasons I had back in 1998/1999 for our breakup – his family background has “royal” qualities that I suddenly found hard to cope with, and perhaps my Diana and Ascendant in Aquarius took charge back then and caused my personal revolution, which I’ve always regretted. I also know his Mars is in Leo so perhaps he got extra fiery back then too! (Sun Cancer, Moon Libra, Mercury Cancer, Venus Cancer, Mars Leo – don’t know the rest.)

        Thirdly, every time I ask your wonderful and highly addictive Astrology Oracle about this person, I almost always get the Descendant /Apollo/Fortuna cards, often with the 5th House, and those are where Leo lands in my chart. (Venus pops up a lot too, LOL)

        I am fascinated by all of this and thank you again for your answer.

        1. Thank you! This is synchronicity, as I was studying the portraits of King George III and his family on the day your message arrived. Then again, astrology is synchronicity. The Astrology Oracle also agrees with you. The issue with Leo and the Fifth House is that the motivation for having children is often to lead them, guide them, mentor them (so cast them in your image) but also to carry on the family line, as a point of pride. Cancer is also associated with children but the sign works completely differently – more emotionally, personally, less concerned with how things look to the world, or why a son/daughter might continue ‘the firm’ as the current Queen calls it. If you throw Mars into any two charts you will also end up with anger. It takes a while to figure this pattern out, but it can be done.

  3. Hello Jessica,
    Thank you for this article. It has given me a lot to think about.

    1999 for me was filled equally- and unusually with complete, all consuming love and utter, soul bludgeoning heartbreak.

    At 17 I met my first love in 1999 and while it only lasted for 2 years, I will always feel grateful and blessed that he came into my life.

    Sadly, that same year, my best friend (an Aquarian) broke my heart. It shook me to the core and it’s only in the last 5 years that the scars of what happened feel truly healed.

    May I please ask what might be waiting for me this time around?

    Kindest regards,

    1. Thank you Nicole. I suspect you have a Leo stellium, because you are talking about love in 1999, not friendship – and one look tells me you were born with the Ascendant, Hygiea and Proserpina in Leo, in the Fifth House of courtship, which is also where we find big choices about pregnancy, be it planned or unplanned – and other people’s children or young relatives. In 1999 the North Node was in Leo too, so it triggered all that. In 2017 the Node comes around again in Leo and everything you learned will now pay off. Expect another fork in the road, either this year or next year (but it would be set up this year). This time round you know exactly what to give/take. I am not sure if it will be with your old lovers or someone new, as there are no charts to look at – but it will be important.

  4. I have Juno 2 Aquarius and it is my only Aquarius placement. In 1999 I was in a partnership and the decision had been made for me to sell my home. The agreement was the monies would be used to fund our lifestyle and his property would become ‘our’ base. So, does this mean I will enter into another agreement with a partner like this again in the near future. Based on that experience, I would definitely make it much more formal lol! Learnt a lesson there!

    1. That’s actually not what the Aquarius node return is about. Money and property issues are Taurus/Scorpio and in fact in 1999 we had both Jupiter and Saturn in Taurus opposing your Scorpio patterns. You stand to gain or save money quite substantially after Jupiter enters Scorpio in October this year and by 2018 should have enjoyed at least one major opportunity.

      1. Thanks Jessica. I thought it might cover this as the property issue was relationship based and the one and only time I have thrown my lot in with another in a serious sexual union. It was quite profound at the time and I thought it was a ‘forever’.

  5. Hi Jessica, in 1999 I left full time work to attend art school, and am currently in the process of applying for my MA. Is this the type of group scenario your talking about? I mean people with shared ambitions coming together..

    Thanks, enjoying your blog as always


    1. Thank you Ben. Yes, this is about art school, and either the same friends will return, or the same themes will return (like hearing a cover version of an old album). You have Vulcano in Aquarius so if friends/groups also crossed over into love/sex with you back in 1999, you may have echoes of that again in 2017, 2018. Vulcano was famously the husband of Venus, an ancient symbol of lust!

  6. Hi Jessica,

    Interesting, but how about people with no Aquarius factors? Does that mean no flashback to 1999? Thanks!

    1. You have a stellium in Leo, so the new Nodal cycle from May (until 2018) is actually about your lovers (past, present, potential) and any babies, children, nieces, nephews, godchildren. Choices you made back in 1999 now return to you, almost as if a new chapter was suddenly being written, to continue on from an old chapter some 17 years ago.

      1. Thank you Jessica, this makes a lot of sense, although how exactly it will refer back to that time remains to be seen…I met my husband then and my life ended up changing completely from a previous emphasis on work/career to a new one with a focus solely on family matters. Will work be back on the cards? This would be great news.

        1. Your career has nothing to do with the Nodes. Your biggest work decisions come from December 2017 when Saturn changes signs to Capricorn and enters your Tenth House of career for the first time in 29 years. You are on the road to professional transformation from that point, with Jupiter entering the Tenth House in December 2019. By 2020 when you have Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all together in your Tenth House you will be in a totally different industry or business, or doing dramatically different things in the field you occupy now.

  7. 1999 is a stand out year for me. I am intrigued. Is there anything in my chart that shows this? And Karma? It’s the year I met my ex, left my job and made the decision to relocate. yikes!
    Thank you Jessica.

    1. You switched your circles and networks, and also your friends, when you did this – for obvious reasons – and although it may have seemed as if your former lover was the real story, actually it was the friendships. Some old lesson/reward here about these people, or the whole principle, is returning.

  8. Hi Jessica,

    My Salacia is in 14 deg, and south node is in 9 deg retrograde in Aquarius. I have an office romance -a Cancer, which is very intense and my ex turned best friend – a Leo, is back wooing me again. Both are commitment free and I want a relationship which is solid, mature and long lasting with a detached attachment.
    Back in 1999, it was my college days and I had lot of interests to choose from, where I made a wrong choice. But then I was too young.
    What do you see here with my Aquarius factors.


    1. Thank you FA. You are asking about something that has nothing to do with the Nodes, but everything to do with your Libra stellium in the Seventh House of love, sex and relationships, as Jupiter is passing through Libra, giving you not just one, but two choices of lover. Try to make your mind up about these two, or possibly even a third person, before October, when the cycle ends.

  9. Hi Jessica…

    Hope you are well.
    I am looking forwards to my birthday on Sat 11 Feb with old Army colleagues… should I be aware of anything… I always love this time for me!! I note there is a lunar eclipse taking place and says I should avoid any decisions about friends groups etc… can you through anymore light on this.. thanks.

    1. Your old Army colleagues are your Aquarius/Eleventh House transit. You may have been alongside each other in other battles/fights in other lifetimes. The eclipse does actually fall right on your Sun. February 10th, 11th, 12th are best treated as days to feel the feelings, take the mental notes, but reserve judgement or avoid making major decisions, as you just won’t see what you need to see. A typical example would be an Army friend inviting you to spend a lot of money on another reunion overseas next year – only for you to later find out that you have to reschedule and there is no refund. It doesn’t have to be negative, but there will be a blind spot. Be aware.

  10. Hi Jessica

    I have a lot of my asteroids in Aquarius, and have always found friendships and groups difficult to navigate. 1999 wasn’t really a stand out year, but 2000 was like a bomb going off. Is there anything in my Aquarius factors that I need to avoid repeating?



    1. Thank you Lisa. In the year 2000 you had the True South Node in Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friends and groups, alongside Uranus and Neptune. You have a large stellium in Aquarius so I’m not surprised it felt like a bomb going off. Either the people will be back in your life this year, next year, in a major way – or the themes, principles and issues will be. What you learned will come back to you. What you earned will reward you. What you still need to get closure on, will be in front of you. You knew these people before.

  11. Hello Jessica,

    I have so many elements placed in Aquarius that I can’t even begin to speculate which area would my Karma be coming back to haunt me. Perhaps you could see a story that is coming from my chart?

    I don’t have much recollection of what had happened in 1999-2000 as I was quite young then. All I could think of when speaking about those years is that my father was undergoing his treatment for cancer, which pretty much changed our family dynamics.

    1. You were a young child who may have turned to your friends, as the family was going through stress. You have the Peanuts chart signature. You were in a childhood gang like Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and company – or you were friends with other children who had their own gangs around them, no matter if it was the Brownies, the Scouts or other little clubs. You will either have those people back in your life in important ways this year/next year, or find yourself in new friendship or group situations which trigger some very old memories of why friends matter as much as family.

  12. Thank you Jess. I’m interested in what this could mean according to my chart. Where should I be looking for opportunities?
    Happy Rooster Year!

    1. Happy New Rooster Year. You have an Aquarius stellium in your Eleventh House of friendships and groups. The stand-out is Jupiter in Aquarius, which is your blessing in life, your protection and also where you can give back. Jupiter in the chart works in a feedback loop, so friends, groups, teams, clubs, societies, political parties, social media circles and so on are where you are always helped – and also where you can freely give. The South Node in Aquarius will conjunct your Jupiter at 6 Aquarius and trine Pluto at 6 Libra, so this is big. It happens June 2018, although you will feel the ‘bump’ from May this year. It’s karma. You knew these people before and are due in some past life rewards.

  13. Hi Jessica

    I have Ceres retrograde in Aquarius and am a Leo ascendant. 1999 is a year I will never forget – my real first love and a brief moment in the limelight due to academic success. In my love craziness I forgot all things rational though and altered the story of things to come for me and my family for at least the next decade and a half. It was a turning point for me. Do you think this level of impact is coming back this year for me? I now have a different family(the one I have with my husband) who is Sagittarius born 9.12.80, Islamabad 13.30. Would be useful to know as I’m planning a hiatus from September this year on an academic pursuit.

    1. You have a Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo in the Fifth House of love, sex and offspring – nothing to do with academia – everything to do with the choices you made in 1999, as the North Node crossed Leo. It is very common for women to have unplanned pregnancy on a cycle like that and choose to change their entire love lives, or terminate. Whatever you did that year has an echo in the future, and you will see why from May 2017. This year and next year are about lovers, children or Millennials with old themes played out and new choices coming.

  14. Hi Jessica, I have no Aquarius factors in my chart at all, is there another part of my chart that will come into play? Thanks for your time!

    1. Thank you. You have a small Leo signature and the North Node is entering Leo – but you’re not really going to experience a 1999 flashback the way other people do.

  15. Hello Jessica- I have read this but I dont know what to make of the flashback to 1999! I was busy with work and bringing up the children, but they are gown up now.I do know that currently everything is up in the air for me at home and I feel very confused,angry and unsure about the future of my relationship. I do have one Aquarius factor in Chiron- Can you give me any guidance? what will this year mean for me? Any help will be very much appreciated- I had hoped that this would be a really good year in 2017 but its not looking like that now.

    1. This is not about the Node, it is about the fact that you have the Sun in Libra and a stellium in Libra too, and are in a cycle (until October) when you must have equality, balance and fairness in your partnership. Anything that needs to be detoxed, will be detoxed, so that something better can grow in its place. You have Minerva in Libra in the Seventh House and this is the key to everything. This asteroid is about your wisdom, and your cleverness (she is symbolised by the owl) and you actually know exactly what to do. The issue for you is – when to do it – yet you will have a fantastic opportunity to put solutions into effect before October. You might gain from using your Astrology Oracle to answer more personal questions.

  16. 1999 was quite a year for me. I left a 12 year marriage due to my husband having a 3 year affair. I had a 1 year old baby and was on my own with no financial resources other than myself. It was very challenging but also liberating. I really dont want a repeat of those years. I am curious how this shift coming in May 2017 will play out for me. Thanks for all of your posts as they are incredibly right on the money!

    1. Thank you. I’m glad the astrology is accurate for you. Your husband’s affair when you had a baby, happened when the North Node in Leo crossed over your Leo stellium in the Fifth House, which is huge and dominates your chart. The Fifth House is about lovers, but also – of course – about parenthood. He owes you and the universe owes you. Your daughter is a past life connection too. As the North Node again enters Leo from May and spends 2017/2018 there you will find the themes/issues of 1999 come back, perhaps because of news regarding him, perhaps because of what she can bring to your life. There will be no repeat. You also had Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius back in the late 1990s/early 00s and they were right opposite your Leo stuff in the Fifth House – very, very difficult. That’s over. But you will see the wheel of karma turn this year.

  17. Hi Jessica! Reading the replies above, I have Aquarius and Leo factors. Back in 1999, I started a long term job (where I learned a lot and we were like a family). But at the end of December (23rd), I had a major condition (P.E.) occur which changed my course in regards to relationships. Does that sort of issue look like it will resurface too?

    Thank you for always taking the time to help decipher our lives!

    1. Thank you. The P.E. and the impact on your relationships in 1999 is a classic example of what happens when the True North Node goes through Leo and your Fifth House of love, sex and potential parenthood. You have a Leo stellium so were strongly affected. The work you put in and the lessons you learned will come back to you 2017, 2018 as the True North Nodes goes through Leo one more time. This may be the actual person resurfacing, or just the principle/issue.

  18. Simple. You moved to America, made new friends, left old friends behind and perhaps joined a new group, club, society or similar. Psyche in Aquarius tells you that your friendships or group involvements outlive you. Long after you are gone, it is what you did as part of an ensemble or collective that will be remembered. As the South Node passes over Aquarius in 2017, 2018, your friends will come back into your life, or you will make new friends who seem instantly familiar, because you knew them in a previous life. You may also join, or rejoin, an important team, club, society, association, trade union, band, political party or similar which brings all the karmic lessons, rewards or challenges of 1999 back to you.

  19. Yeek! Jessica, it is already happening. I am in my home town now to see my parents & pray at my favourite temple.

    On 6 Feb, I just happened to see couple of my work mates from 1999-2000. After 16 years I have met them.

    In 1998 onwards, We both were sexually harrased by a man at work and despite my friend’s advice I reported this to higher official and got him sacked. This man trashed me badly in revenge, but in his mind he knew what he exactly did. This created disagreement between us. Later in 2001, I left the country.

    Lunar eclipse conjuncts my venus at 21 degree on 10/2/2017. N Node will cross my venus this year. Some thing to do with karma I guess. Thank you

  20. Hi Jessica
    Thank you for all your insight & teaching.
    I have Saturn 22 & Cupido 1 Aquarius 6th house , also DC 26 Aquarius & AC 26 Leo.
    My partner of 25 years DOB 23/1/62 7am Bathurst NSW has Moon 25 Leo 7th house & Venus 1 ,Sun 2 ,Saturn 2, Jupiter15, Mercury 20, AC 23 all Aquarius 12 th house PLUS Leo 17 North Node 6th house. Seat belts & crash helmets recommended ?
    Phew, got a bit jumpy after reading all that.

    1. I am not sure what house system you use, but I have to spin your chart around to use the Natural House system here. There is a lot of Leo/Aquarius interplay between you, so Eleventh House and Fifth House. You don’t say if you have children or not, but the children you chose to have/were unable to have/chose not to have in late 1998, 1999, early 2000 are the story here. What goes around comes around. Sometimes the issue is a stepchild, niece, nephew or godchild. Whatever you learned now returns to you. Whatever you earned now returns to you. No crash helmets required. A very common example of this is the woman who gives birth to a daughter in 1999, and in 2017 must deal with the reality of her daughter becoming a woman and wanting to leave home or go to university. Simple.

  21. Hi Jess – I can’t really remember much specifically about 1999 (!) but Sept 2000 saw a trip overseas which cemented (Juno?) a friendship group overseas, and further trips. Also a love interest (Cupid in Leo) – absolute fireworks which has provided bursts of passion through the years.
    Am I reading this correctly?
    Opportunities through this overseas friendship group (I’m visiting mid year) ?
    Thanks once again! You are brilliant!

    1. Thank you. Actually, both of these stories might push your buttons, as Leo-Aquarius is about the group as well as the lover. I have seen an example of this in a client who joined a band then fell in love with the drummer. The Nodes are going to well and truly bring 1999 and 2000 back to you, so it sounds as if your travels will deliver an old experience/face. You could easily begin new friendships/romances with people in that original circle making the connection for you.

  22. Thank you Jessica. Sorry about that with the house systems, I didn’t realise what I did but I was reading off two old Astrodienst charts & have only now just seen that it says Placidus. Bit slow on the uptake but happy I’ve learned something. We have two of our own children born 1998 & 2001 & my husband has two children from a previous marriage. So that is starting to make some sense.
    Many thanks again, always so interesting.

  23. Dear Jessica,
    Thanks for your article. 1999 was a very hard year. Professionally, I moved overseas to a job that didn’t end up being what I expected, but modern-time slavery. That same year, I came out to my family, which wasn’t exactly a walk in the park. The strange thing about 2017, is that I am publishing a novel about the difficulty of revealing your homosexuality to friends and family. Could this be the karma you are talking about?
    Kind regards.

    1. Thank you. Yes, this is about how you came out to friends in 1999 and also those new friends/amigos/allies you made in your community in the same year. You have a stellium in Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friendship and groups, and so it’s part of your life path. Moving overseas you also made mew friends, no doubt. All that comes back over the next two years, either by theme, or by old faces reappearing.

  24. Hi Jessica

    This is so interesting, thank you. 1999 was a dark time for me. My then-boyfriend who I thought was my soulmate left me for someone in the public eye. He married her and had children with her and I still have to hear about them through her work which is like having a wound that never quite heals! I also lost my job and was quite hard up, but in the midst of the break-up, landed quite a lucrative freelance contract at a company that sort of looked after me-because I was new, no-one asked me many questions so I could focus on work not emotions-a welcome relief!

    I am again self-employed and now married but slightly fearing another big upset. I only have Aquarius 1 MC but am Leo 30.07.70

    Do you have any insights into how this might play out this time?

    Thank you

    1. I am sorry your ex left you for for someone else and I understand the pain, which is visible in the chart. You have a huge stellium in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius moved opposite that in 1999, at the same time that the North Node in Leo itself, was triggering everything in your Fifth House. The Fifth House rules lovers and potential pregnancy/actual pregnancy. No more upsets. You have karma credits to pick up from 1999 and I would not be surprised if issues this pair – or if you saw some other kind of full circle completion by 2018. You call it the wound that never heals – actually it will heal over the next two years, as you can finally move on. Your path in life is to mentor, guide and influence younger people, either as mother, aunt, godmother, stepmother or through your paid/unpaid work. You are ‘Queen’ to this younger generation and you will see why this year. Had you stayed with him you would never have fulfilled this other destiny path of yours, with the young.

  25. Yikes, That was about the time I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I hope that isn’t a sign of problems to come. Does my chart indicate problems?

  26. I had a great group of friends in 1999, I have since moved and been feeling isolated. I hope this means I can look forward to finally making friends in my new town.

    1. You will make new friends in 2017, 2018 and they will feel like old friends. Just chatting to them makes you feel quite at home and on a second or third meeting, you’ll both know that you are more than just passing social acquaintances. The favours are usually a clue. There is typically some kind of healing/helping favour done, on either side – it’s a soul agreement from another life.

  27. Hi Jessica
    I have Chiron in Aquarius -at 22 degrees. You made reference to that placement in this weeks forecast. What does that mean for me and does it relate to 1999?

    1. You have the punk rock placement of Chiron in Aquarius and many of the bands who came out in 1977, 1978, 1979 have it. Basically, groups set you free to experiment and explore. Any kind of group! They always did and always will. Chiron is about seeing what you can get away with, testing the rules, stretching the boundaries and finding out where the goalpost just moved to. You had the South Node at 22 Aquarius back in 1999, right on Chiron, so some of the people around you socially or within the circle, were past life connections. In 2017 and 2018, those faces will be back, or major stories surrounding them will move forward for you. Karma!

  28. Thank you so much Jessica, if only I had had access to you/your site then! It’s fascinating that you could see the pain in the planets then and also interesting that you say my calling is to mentor the young, as I currently don’t have much contact with young people, although I would like to. They are around but not in a direct channel to me (I’m an aunt not a mother). Anyway I’m relieved I don’t have to go through such a time again! I appreciate your reply.

    1. Being an aunt is important (more than you think) but there will be more young faces in your world to come – some for personal reasons, some for professional/unpaid reasons. You are definitely here to guide them.

  29. Good Day Jessica, and as always your information is the best I have found. Thanks for giving us what we need to know. 1999 for me was rather difficult as my husband ( ex now) were going to difficult times. He is an alcoholic, and drug user. We moved to another state for a “start over”. But divorced in 2004. I since have moved to my home state as of two wks ago. Could you explain pls what my AQ factor have in store for me?

    Blessings to you !

    1. Thank you very much. The year 1999 was really about the Taurus-Scorpio axis of your chart, which rules marriage/mortgage and marriage/banking. You had Saturn going over that, in the sign of Taurus, for the first time in 29 years and it was undoubtedly impossible for you. So, nothing to do with the Nodes at all – just a tough call from Saturn. You do have a strong Aquarius chart signature though and in 2017, 2018 the South Node will cross that. The friends who got you through the break-up, as well as the friends you may have lost, will return to you – or similar themes/lessons/rewards from that time will come your way again. A typical example would be having a pal from that time, also going through a divorce now, so you can do for her, what she did for you!

  30. Jessica – Sorry, as I’m still familiarizing myself with all the great information on your website but I’m a bit confused as to where the rest of this article’s content appears for Premium members ?

  31. Hi Jessica,
    I am left breathless at the insights you have provided me through your knowledge and website – thank you!
    In 1998-2001 I found out my husband was seeing another woman ( we are still together but it is not a good situation). I also made a huge mistake at work which was very embarrassing and cost the company $1,000,000. The error was due to my sloppiness. I almost lost my job but I was given another assignment which led me to my current job in Human Resources. It was a difficult time and one that still affects me today. I have my south node in acquarius and in my Saturn and moon? Any insight you can provide would be great! Thank you.

    1. Thank you. Losing your company $1 million and discovering your husband has an affair sounds like Scorpio stuff to me. It’s no surprise to see you have a strong Scorpio-Taurus axis in your chart and back in 1999, Saturn the planet of hard lessons and reality checks was in Taurus, setting the whole pattern off. Nothing to do with the Nodes. However – please get good financial advice from the final quarter of this year into 2018 and beyond, as Uranus will go into Taurus and Jupiter will go into Scorpio. It will initially be quite lucrative, as you save or make money, but it’s also going to be a wild, wild ride over many years so you need trusted advisors then.

  32. Hi Jessica, I only have one sign in Aquarius. But my toddler is Aquarius 25/1/2014. Do our little ones signs interplay with ours during periods like this?

    In 1999, I was trekking in Nepal in Feb/ March, which I loved as a claiming my power and did the entire 6 weeks in silence not talking to a soul. Very liberating. Can’t remember too much about the friendships and groups, since I still have most of those people still in my life. I was enjoying life, friends and going out, that’s for sure. I do remember stating my coaching work on the side whilst I worked which become my main career until a few years ago when it abrupted halted. Could this be a return to this work which I loved, but I’ve stepped out of since relocating continents. Overall, I remember 1999 being a happy time. Freeing and liberating all at the same time. Thanks Jessica for your thoughts x

    1. You planned your Nepal trek in February 1999 with Jupiter in Pisces in your Twelfth House of solitude, meditation, introspection and ‘what lies beneath.’ It was the perfect time. You have Minerva and Ops in Pisces in your Twelfth House natally, so it was also going to work perfectly for you. The Nodal returns of 2017 have nothing to do with that, but in general, Pisces transits will always trigger that part of you.

  33. Hi Jessica and Happy Eclipse Season.

    I have:
    Juno 1 Aqua 12′
    Vulcano 00 Scorpio 07′
    Hygeia 00 Virgo 17′
    & Minerva 17 Leo 50′
    But i also have Ops 22 Capricorn 10′

    I’m not sure what to look at, as I have only the one Aqua factor exact, but other same degrees/different signs. I am also looking at this with my Solar Fire but it’s confusing me.

    I had just come out of a pretty trying, tense divorce in 1999, have no romantic prospects on the horizon (that i know of)… I’ve just been super focused on my business and am wondering if my chart will even be pinged & if so how/what area.

    Any advice you can share would be greatly appreciated.


    1. Tara, you have Juno at 1 Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friendships and groups, so you ‘marry’ friends and ‘wed’ groups in a highly committed way. The South Node will cross 1 Aquarius in October 2018, triggering old karma from January 1999 when Neptune was also at 1 Aquarius. Back then, confused and confusing people/situations (Neptune) with no boundaries (Neptune) dissolved the promises you had made to yourself and others, affecting friendships and groups. You had to make a choice and you did. There is an answering call to that situation in October 2018. It will affect other areas of your life too, as you have other factors near 1 degree at 0 degree. So this stretches to finance (Vulcano at 0 Scorpio in the Eighth House of money, property, business) and work (Hygiea at 0 Virgo in the Sixth House of daily service and duty). It may be that the faces come back to you, or the same issue does, with a chance to resolve it.

  34. Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for writing this feature. I have *loads* of factors in Aquarius!

    I was only 10 in 1999, and had been in boarding school – some of my happiest years – away from always-fighting (which continues to this day) parents. For some reason I seem to think of an eclipse or a comet passing earth in that year?! I might be totally wrong. Given that I had such a such difficult 2009-2014/15 I really hope I don’t have more tough decisions/calls to make!

    I hope you bear some good news!!



    1. Thank you Pri. That is a really great example of how 1999 worked out for a child with an Aquarius stellium. Boarding school. You made friends for life then and also knew some of them from another lifetime too. Those people, or what you began with them, will return to you in the next two years. A typical example would be a hobby group/sports team. Another example might be favours you did for a friend which are now returned to you. Life-changing stuff. Not the small stuff.

  35. Bonjour Jessica
    Would you be kind enough to give me an indication of how my stellium in Aquarius is likely to affect me and how it relates to 1999 please. I can recalll working full-time, studying part-time, raising 2 young children and overseeing the construction of a new house which we later moved into.
    Merci d’avance.

    1. Bonjour. Your Aquarius stellium is about none of those things, but it is about the friendships you had in 1999 when the True South Node, Uranus and Neptune were all in Aquarius. Those people or themes now return to you 2017, 2018 for closure.

  36. Hi Jessica, thank you for you amazing insights and advise!! in 1999 I was asked to take on a new role with my company as I was almost fired in my current role at the time for making an error. 18 years earlier in 1980-81 when the nodes where also in acq/leo I graduated from high school and entered university. Does this mean possibly that I will be making another change in my career? I may being restructured out of my job this year and if offered another role with the company I am not sure if I should take it. Are the nodes a factor here or are they affecting another area of my life. Thanks!!

    1. Thank you. Your career is not the issue here, but your friends and groups from High School and University are. Is this a Glee scenario, I wonder? You have a very, very important stellium in Aquarius which rules the community, the art of friendship, and people power within a circle. What you learned and earned in 1999 will come back to you in 2017, 2018 as either the faces return, or the same message is back. You’ll grow through this. In fact, your soul needs it.Watch what happens, a little bit, in February – but really it’s May and beyond that will reveal the echo of the past.

  37. Thank you Jessica for taking the time to respond to my question… interestingly my Army Association motto is ‘Friendship’ …how cool is that…!

    Just found your site, it’s wonderfully informing…thank you so much! I have to say though I’m just a bit frightened of what these eclipses could hold for me. I’m August 6,1965…Leo with Aquarius rising…Taurus MC and Scorpio IC. Looks like these eclipses will hit me directly…again. 1999 was so emotionally painful for me with a love theme, I can hardly stand to think about it. Hoping I have some karmic credits because I don’t know if I could withstand a repeat. I am currently in another soul mate type relationship. I am glad to be warned though…thank you! Love your site! Signed up this morning.

    1. Thank you very much, I will pass that feedback onto James, Justin and Alyas, who look after the website. The reason 1999 was so tough was that your entire Leo stellium in the Fifth House of lovers, pregnancy, children and youth was under the major karmic cycle of the True North Node in Leo. At the same time, you had oppositions from Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius. That will never happen again in your lifetime – but you do need closure and you did earn karma points, so when the Node yet again goes through Leo, either the person or the situation will return, for the next instalment. It’s called, how to finish a book you began writing in 1999 and then had to leave to one side. Yet this time – without the difficulty.

  39. Hello Jessica,
    I have Proserpina 24, Salacia 04, Diana 24 and Desc 22 in Aquarius. You also mentioned Leo in the comments above – my chart shows Venus 26, Juno 11, Asc 22, Aesculapia 19 and Vulcano 15, all in Leo. How does this look to you? Thank you!

    1. You have a classic Leo-Aquarius chart so two things will happen this year. One is the return of some very old karma with a person tied to your social life, friendships and group efforts or group projects. You are going to have to satisfy your soul and tie up some old soul contracts, as things are not actually closed off here, even if you think they are. A typical example would be your old football team and an ancient victory from many years ago, but with one person on the team still having issues with the trophy or you! Leo rules courtship and the heirs to your throne. Here, too, there is also karma to close down, but it may be from another lifetime as well as this one. You will know it when you see it.

  40. Jessica,
    Your site is great! I have been casually dating someone i dated 1999-2001 (06/19/63). We moved on to different lives. is this part of mt flashback?

  41. Hi Jessica!

    I have 4 Aquarius factors in my chart. I was a teenager in 1998 and remembering being very unpopular in high school, a social outcast. It was a critical point in my life where i wanted to go away for college but it didnt happen. I stayed local. And even today I’m still an outsider on some levels with my colleagues but hoping for opportunities to move overseas. Is that related to my karmic points in anyway? How will 2017 play out for me. Will there be opportunities for me finally leave, and I don’t mean travelling but MOVE! And soon?

    Thanks in advanced!

    1. I am sorry you were unpopular in high school – during 1998 you had Uranus and Neptune passing through your Eleventh House of friendship so there is typically a lot of confusion but also rejection. You reject them, they reject you, you reject them. The same faces or issues return this year and next year, so you can gain closure. There is karma there, if you were left outcast, and other people owe you. It is also very likely that you need to learn, once and for all, how to make social media and your social life work. There is an excellent chance to do that this year and High School (not Glee for you) can be laid to rest.

  42. Oh, well if we are talking Leo factors, I have some of these – Mercury 22 Leo, Hygiea 25 Leo and Minerva 13 Leo. So will the north node impact me in any of these areas?

    1. The transiting True North Node in Leo begins its journey at 29 Leo in May 2017 and will cross your Mercury and Hygiea first, in your Fifth House, which rules the pregnancies you did or did not pursue, as well as godchildren, nieces, nephews, sons or daughters now. Leo is also about courtship and the royal bedchamber and we associate it with the mistress, as well as the toy boy! You are going to see all those crossroads choices you made many years ago return to you, with full implications for now. More choices wait. This is called going full circle.

  43. Would you be so kind as to look at what the Aquarius factors in my chart mean for me, Jessica? I was living in Spain from ’98 to ’99 and then came back to the UK to graduate in 2000. Many many thanks!

    1. You have Diana at 22 Aquarius in your Eleventh House so make friends with women who are child free and marriage free. This is a lifelong pattern. You understand feminists and free spirits really well. Why? Because part of them is also part of you. Groups of all kinds, and particular friendships, are liberating for you – especially in female company. The female/s around in January, February 1999 return over the next two years or the basic life theme does.

  44. Hi Jessica

    Thank you for another fascinating article. 1999/2000 were life changing years for me. At 17 / 18 years old I met my future (now ex) husband (born London 3 March 1982). Despite being so young we stayed together for 12 years, 10 of them happy before we grew apart. I had always wanted children but in the end I decided I didn’t want that with him. 1999/2000 were also the years I really stood up to a bullying father and transformed our family life as a result. The events of these years really defined my life and life choices for the following 12 years (maybe more). With so much going on in my love life and family life, friendships took a back seat at this time.

    With my Aquarius stellium and Leo factors how can I expect to see this cycle play out for me? I am single at the moment but there is someone at a distance who is unable to commit but keeps coming back into my life then disappearing again (born London 9 Oct 1981). We just can’t seem to break ties although we have no future without some action from him. Is there any karma or flashbacks due in relation to any of the above?! Thank you!

    1. Thank you! Okay, so this was about your Leo chart factors in the Fifth House, back in 1999, 2000 when you decided that you did not want children with him. In 2017, 2018 you will have an answering call to that choice, made many years ago. It is not uncommon to see women suddenly becoming godparents, or aunts, or dating men who have children from a previous relationship. Sometimes they become pregnant. Unless you like an unpredictable, erratic existence you may want to steer clear of Mr. 9th October 1981 as he was born with Venus at 29 Scorpio and Uranus at 27 Scorpio, so very time he gets close to someone, the issues about the money, apartment or house come up for him, and he finds himself at the heart of drama. He’s done this before with other women. That is why he is so non-committal. If you were to make it work with him, he would be in the right place to do that, end of 2018, but please know that this may just as easily be with another woman – and it would trigger the usual issues for him, about rejecting what/who he wants. He’s a tremendous rejector. You do have other options.

  45. Dear Jessica hi)
    I have a few factors in Aquarious along with the North node.
    Back to 1999 I broke up with my boyfriend but then got together again and married in 2001. Currently divorced since September 2013.,
    Will I experience similar situations right now?
    Thank you once more for the unique way you analyze astrological themes .,it’s like lifecoaching, for me at least!!
    Best regards

    1. Thank you MK you are too kind. You have a stellium in Leo in the Fifth House which rules unplanned pregnancy, stepchildren, children and so on. We associate it with courtship but also illegitimate children, rightful heirs, the heirs to the throne and related issues like fertility. You don’t say if any of this is relevant to 1999, 2000, 2001 but I suspect it was, because of the oppositions to your Leo stellium. Yes, the past will come back to you in 2017, 2018. It won’t be an exact replay of course, but the themes of that time will return. you will be given a chance to get thorough closure, because no matter how much we think we’ve moved on from someone/something the universe sometimes thinks differently.

      1. Thank you so much for your reply. And now that you mentioned it , there was an unplanned pregnancy in 1999..
        currently having one son born in 2004.
        I imagine I have to be extra carefull during this cycle?
        best regards

        1. Yes, the unplanned pregnancy was what I was thinking about. Yes, MK, do be careful on this cycle, but I suspect the real issue will be some old karma from that time and the need for ultimate closure.

  46. Hi Jessica,

    I was heavily pregnant at the end of 1999 and moved house late that year too. I gave up a job that was fantastic due the imminent arrival of the baby… A pregnancy is certainly not on the cards this time around – What do you you think will play out for me from May 2017?
    Many thanks

    1. Very simply, it’s the karma of having the baby in 1999/2000. You gave up your job for your child. Your child has a past life connection with you. I suspect in 2017, 2018, the teenager in your world now can give you a karmic return or reward, or perhaps the universe will do it for you. You have Minerva at 28 Leo in the Fifth House of parenthood and Minerva is well and truly crossed by the Node (and an eclipse actually) soon.

  47. Hi Jessica.What you write is so exciting because i am an Aquarius and my north node is in Leo.I was in university through 1999 – 2003.I met my current partner ( my first and only love and when i first saw him i thought i knew him before as you write about past lives) in 1999 and we were friends until 2003.Then after 10 years he came back to me but we are having serious problems recently.

    1999 is also the year i met my two best friends whom i’m having some problems too.
    All these years you mentioned fits my life experiences  so perfectly it can’t be a coincidence.
    So i am waiting for May to come quickly now that you said about Karma repaying us or finally having closure to move on.

    Thank you, we really appreciate your work.Please keep surprising us with your writings.

    1. Thank you, that is an amazing true story about how the Nodes have affected you. After May you will quickly realise what you have inherited, or where you must try for closure and by 2018 you should be able to close the chapter and finish the book!

  48. Hi Jessica
    Thank you for the article. I’m reposting. I think my previous comment must have gone somewhere else by mistake.

    For the life of me I can’t think what good can come back from 1999.
    I was at university, away from home, very lonely with nothing in common with my peers. My saving grace was when I visited Back home to see my boyfriend (we are still together-just – with Saturn in both of our 7ths).
    The funniest thing was I couldn’t wait to leave home for uni. But I was so not confident, and didn’t fit in with my peers who lived uni to the max. It was like I was a spectator at uni.
    Can u shed any light for my this time around? Thank you

    1. Comments don’t get lost, but I travel a lot for Holiday Goddess (I work as an editor on the HarperCollins series of books) so I can’t always get to the list and it’s now standing at 2,231 people this morning. It’s very simple – you have Juno in Leo and in 1999 the Node was in Leo. Juno is commitment and Leo is lovers. You will now have the repeat of a 1999 or 2000 issue with your boyfriend. Perhaps it was pregnancy.

      1. Thank you for your insight Jessica.
        Wow that’s a lot of comments! Thank you for replying. I hope u manage to get some u time too!
        I think your insights are fabulous. Thank you

  49. Hi,

    I think my posts are being missed as this is the third time I’ve posted on this now. Please could you tell me what this might mean for me? I was at university in 1999 but am not in touch with anyone from that time now and I don’t remember the year as particularly standing out.


    1. Neptune crossed your Bacchus at 2 Aquarius in 1999 so you were friends with (or in a group with) people who partied hard, drank or experimented with drugs. Bacchus rules Bacchanalian feasts and hedonism, and Neptune rules mind-expanding and mind-altering experiences. Someone who seemed to be from another world, or not on the planet, will reappear in 2017, 2018 – or a story will emerge which reminds you of him/her. Watch.

  50. Hi Jessica,

    My DOB is 7/29/74. A lot of firsts happened for me In 1999/2000. I had an unplanned pregnancy in 9/2000. I got married in 4/2000 & my gut always knew it was wrong. My daughter is now 16, not quite ready for university nor likely to want to leave home. My husband 10/13/70 and I are now separated. His Uranus transits are hard to deal with. Can you please share what kind of karma I should expect? Is this about our daughter, the marriage, or both?

    1. Three factors in Leo in your chart will do it. You have a chart signature in the Fifth House of parenthood, step-parenting, pregnancy and so on. This is principally about your daughter and your ex-husband, her father. As she is at that bridge between her teens and young adulthood, this sounds like rewards, lessons and closure from everything across 1999, 2000 as the True North Node will move through Leo from May 2017 and by 2018 will have triggered that old Leo pattern in your chart. It may help to read widely about Leo – look at your ebooks.

  51. Hi Jessica,

    Hope this email from me wont go missed, as the last two.

    In 1999-2000 I was at university, but those years brought me a couple of love relationships, one of them not that easy one and a unplanned and unwanted pregnancy!

    Can you please share with me what kind of repetition or karma should I expect this time?

    I am a Premium Member.

    Thank you dear Jessica for your advice and insight

    1. You have Saturn in Leo in the Fifth House which rules pregnancy, parenthood, godchildren and youth as a whole. Your unwanted pregnancy on the last Node cycle is very typical and I am sure it was very tough for you to go through. The wheel spins in 2017, 2018 and you will get ultimate closure on what you had to do. You sometimes see this because the former lover ends up with a child of his own, or because you are made an aunt/godmother – or take on a role with other people’s children. You will know more July-August 2017 as the Sun goes through Leo and sheds light on it all.

  52. Hi Jessica,

    I am already seeing this work in my life, friends I have not seen since the 90’s recently reappeared and I helped them with an advance directive for their elderly mother and navigating the healthcare system for her.

    Then I was asked to help a girls group I was in charge of in the 90’s.

    I have have a sense something will also come up with my birth father who I have had no contact with since the late 90’s who happens to be a Leo.

    I am taking note of all these things that seem to be flying in from the past.

    By the way the Oscars Academy has asteroids at 8 Scorpio and 8 Capricorn in its chart. However Price Waterhouse Coopers has taken the full blame for the incident. The Oscars have had so much bad PR in recent years over racism this was the last thing they needed.

    Thanks for your work.


  53. Hi Jessica- reposting

    In 1999, I was very young and can hardly recall any events that would matter now.

    I do have a few factors in 7 degrees Jupiter (so charity?), 3 degrees Panacea (healing) and 18 degrees Salacia (alternate existence).

    None of the above I’m able to make any connection. Could you please guide?


    1. Shaolee, you have Jupiter at 7 Aquarius in your Eleventh House of friendships and groups, and you were born in 1985, so were aged around 14 first time around. Try to remember old schoolfriends from that time, or peer groups like sports teams, debating teams, community organisations and so on. The people may come back, once the Node slowly starts to move through Aquarius or old patterns/possibilities may return. In general, groups are very blessed in your life and you are tremendously lucky with your friends, so do use the good karma coming your way.
