AquariusJanuary 20 - February 18
Welcome to February, skymates! This is the last full month where Saturn, the Planet of Challenge and Responsibility, will be in the sign of Aquarius. On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces, where it’ll remain until 2025. This month is astrologically and spiritually significant. For you, Aquarius, Saturn’s final stretch in your sign is teaching you all about yourself, your resilience and your ability to tap into higher realms of thinking, living, and vibing. Many Aquarians have been dreaming of creating a co-op where they live off-the-grid in a forest or farm, cultivating community and divesting from capitalistic tendencies. Even if your vision for your life is less radical, there’s a part of you that’s been brainstorming ways to do your own thing, especially since March 2020 when Saturn entered your sign. Start off the month taking those brainstorms seriously… You’re only a few decisions away from a completely new life.

Key themes: showing up in your partnerships, speaking up, embracing and sharing your unique perspective, tapping into your generosity, let your heart guide your actions.
Dear Aquarius, the month of February opens up with Ceres, the asteroid of motherly nurture, going retrograde in Libra on the 3rd. In your area of spiritual, philosophical and expansive journeys, reflect on the balance between giving and receiving in your relationships and how you do so in nurturing, joyful and expansive ways.
The Full Moon in the passionate sign of Leo will happen on the 5th, at 1:28 pm EST, in your area of partnerships, clients, and committed relationships. Reflect on the progress you’ve made and the healing you’ve accomplished in these areas. This is a time to be courageous in your declarations of love and to take pride in the hard work you’ve put into these connections. Remember that true intimacy requires courage. What relationships make you want to be, try, and do your best? How can you show up and be fully present in these connections?
Vesta, the asteroid of devotion and commitment, begins a new run around the zodiac on the 7th as it moves into Aries, in your area of communication. Don’t be afraid to speak up and make your voice heard, as this transit will give you the courage to express yourself in new and exciting ways.
On the 11th, Mercury —the Messenger— moves into your sign of Aquarius in your area of self-discovery. This is an opportunity to express yourself in a powerful way. Let your inner world shine. It takes courage to speak up and share your unique perspective, but don’t let fear hold you back. Trust in your own integrity and speak your truth, even if others may not fully understand it. Don’t be afraid to stand out and be different. Embrace your weirdness and let your ideas be heard.
Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom and strategic thinking, will enter your area of work and health rituals in the sign of Cancer on the 16th. Reflect on your emotional needs and how you can care for yourself in more nurturing and devotional ways. Use this time to develop new skills and to take care of your well-being.
On the 18th, the Sun’s exit from Aquarius will give way to Pisces Season, followed by the New Moon also in the dreamy sign of Pisces, on the 20th at 2:06 am EST, shining a light on your ability to heal and nurture yourself and those around you. You’re being reminded that true wealth is not measured by material possessions, but by the love and connections in your life. This is a time to focus on self-care and to be generous with your time and resources. Ask yourself, how can you show more kindness and compassion towards yourself and others? How can you create a life filled with love and connection?
Also on the 20th, Venus starts a new cycle around the zodiac as she comes out of Pisces and moves into Aries. Your energy is high and your ideas are flowing. This is a time to embrace your boldness and to dare to express yourself authentically. However, don’t forget to also let your heart guide your actions. Your words will be sweeter. Take the time to actively work towards a kinder, stronger, and more compassionate inner voice.
Ruling Planets: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge & Uranus, the Planet of Surprise
Where You’ll Find Them: Hacking a website, filming a documentary, planning a revolution
What They Avoid: Following the rules, mushy-gushy relationships, petty drama
Aquarius, the 11th sign of the zodiac, is known as the Water Bearer because it’s all about the transmission of elements and information. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius knows how to remain focused on a project that will benefit something larger than their own self. Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac, always ahead of the game, which is why they may feel like a misunderstood loner at times. At other times though, Aquarius knows how to put on their social hat and live it up — it all depends on their mood.
Aquarius has a knack for technology that makes them a natural entrepreneur and creator. They would thrive as a techie, marketer, journalist, business person, activist, grassroots organizer and politician. Aquarius is known for having progressive and unconventional thoughts and ideas, so not everyone will necessarily be on the same page as them, and they really don’t mind. Aquarius often paves their own professional trajectory. They don’t necessarily view formal education as the main means to an end. They’ll create their own legacy based on their true interests, which are varied and changing. Aquarius does excellent work on their own, but they are also incredible leaders and collaborators.
Friendship is Aquarius’ forte, because they are quite observant creatures and they love to figure out what makes people happy and what makes them tick. So while Aquarius can sometimes purposefully get on your nerves just for fun, they also know exactly what to do or say to make you explode in laughter or to dry your tears. Aquarius is the kind of friend who will actively come up with solutions to your problems, as long as your problems aren’t super emotional or dramatic. Being an Air sign, Aquarius feels most comfortable in the intellectual world, and they’d benefit from befriending more sensitive types who can help them tune into their intuitive world. When Aquarius combines the intellectual with the emotional, they become unstoppable.
One thing Aquarius must learn to do in order to boost their love life is not fear their emotions. Aquarius tends to intellectualize their sensitivities and even hide them behind a mask of indifference. This is due to the fact that falling in love or even the concept of intimacy can make Aquarius a bit too uncomfortable — they feel more at ease with friendship than love. Nevertheless, Aquarius is a sapiosexual, meaning they’ll fall in love with your mind first. The key to an Aquarius’ heart is to be knowledgable, intriguing and curious. Aquarius will want to dive into your being if you can keep them interested and thirsty for knowledge. And while Aquarius will always seek freedom and independence in their relationship, they still make their lover their priority, in their own way. Everything about Aquarius is done in their own way, and that simply can’t be changed.
