You are not Mahram for your aunt: واحل لکم ما وراء ذلکم (سورۃ النساء: 24) Therefore, it is not allowed for you to take her with you in Hajj:

قال صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم: لا یحل لامرأۃ تؤمن باللہ والیوم الآخر ان تسافر سفراً فیکون ثلاثۃ ایام فصاعداً الا ومعھا ابوھا او اخوھا او زوجھا او ابنھا او ذو محرم منھا (رواہ الترمذی: 1/220)

Allah knows Best!
