The Sun moves into Aquarius on January 21st this year and will remain there until February 19th when we transition into Pisces. Aquarius is one of the oldest constellations to be recognized among the stars. Its accompanying myth is known as the “water bearer,” and throughout history has been associated with the floods of Babylon and Egypt.
Based on current events, it seems fitting that Aquarius should be entering the centerfold of the cosmos at this time. Even those who have been doubtful of astrological messages in the past are beginning to see how our collective experience is being orchestrated by the tides of the stars. As the myth goes, Zeus was said to have poured the heavenly waters from Mount Olympus into the Earth to cleanse it of the wicked and evil men, and thus bringing a fresh start for those to come after. As the first shift in the astrological season of the new year, the allure of a fresh start definitely still has it’s appeal. But what does this beginning mean for your sign?
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The calm and cooling energy of Aquarius is going to help your sudden impulses this season, Aries. This is going to be a most valuable time of learning and reflection. Whether you’ve been hard at work to be more mindful of this aspect of yourself, or if you’re newly continuous of it, this moment is important for you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’ve had ample time to reflect on what you want out of your daily experiences this past year. Now is the time to start making adjustments to see those positive changes. Remember that it’s ok to change your mind and develop new beliefs. Those who understand and cherish you will not have any less love in their heart because of these changes and will understand your reasons behind any important decisions you make.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you’re feeling an overwhelming urge to experience new things and discover a side of yourself that has been dormant, we’re not surprised. The energy Aquarius is giving you, sweet Gemini, is that of a determined explorer. Use this boost to learn something new and satisfy your search for knowledge and understanding.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Much like Gemini, you too are about to experience great change and will come to a new understanding of yourself. While this change comes to be, remember that it can only truly be completed if you are in an environment that will support this transformation. Perhaps it’s time for you to let go of what might be holding you back.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
We know something doesn’t feel quite right. We’re right there with you. Getting out of the routine you’ve been stuck in might help. Spend a whole day engaging in activities that bring you joy, or at least remember to schedule time for whatever brings you joy throughout the week.
Virgo (August-September 22)
We understand the desire for a change of scenery or shift in your daily routine. If you can do so safely, a journey down a new path might be just what you need! There may even be a way to do so without going too far. Explore those options that you would have otherwise ignored.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This season will help you settle into your genuine and true self. Whether that means you’re distancing yourself from toxic energy which has been clouding your judgement or else seeking out experiences you were once too scared to engage in. Pay attention to your breath in stressful situations and you’ll know when to make the right choice.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You’re just at the beginning of a long and exciting journey. Before you get too far along, make sure you have all the tools you need to succeed. Check in with your loved ones and see if there’s anything you forgot. They might have some words of wisdom and insight you wouldn’t have thought of.
Sagittarius (November 22-December21)
We know this line gets old, but remember that slow and steady wins the race. The universe is priming you for exciting changes in the most important areas of your life, but be cautious not to skip any of the important steps—otherwise those milestones may not come to fruition.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
As we leave your sign it might be hard to keep a level head, yes even for you. Remember you’re not the only one who is going through a transitional moment and that your words have lasting meaning to those around you. You will succeed, but be sure you don’t tear others down to achieve your goals.
Aquarius (January 20-February16)
You’ve come full circle once again and we are so proud of you! Your path is shifting and that’s ok, everyone has to adjust as the changes continue to flow. Allow yourself some time to relax and soak in the energy which the universe is generously providing. If you ever need a hand, you can count on your air and water signs to support you.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Oh the anticipation! We know it can be difficult, but waiting your turn is one of those lessons that should never be taken lightly. Soon the moment for you to shine will come, but for now, continue putting in the hard work.
