AquariusJanuary 20 - February 18
The Moon is in Scorpio this weekend, allowing us to take time to absorb the enlightening vibes of the recent Libra New Moon. Remember that being conscious with oneself and nourishing one’s soul is an intention in itself. Aquarius, you’re doing great, so spend time this weekend celebrating all the ways in which you are. Play around with new artistic ventures you’ve been wanting to do, and do it just for fun, not because it could become your next hustle. Let yourself experiment with life and existence as you remind yourself of your infinite nature.
Today’s Libra New Moon takes place at 3:31pm EST, and it activates a six-month cycle of creating more harmony and equilibrium within ourselves and our relationships. Take time to set new moon intentions this weekend regarding how you’d like to consistently feel six months from now. Aquarius, you’re a being of light and divine cosmic energy, and this New Moon will have you feeling more social, loving and open to connecting with others. You may meet new people, broaden your social circle, or develop a new crush around this time. It’s okay to pursue these desires, even if Mercury’s retrograde. The key is to take your time and not rush into anything. Be present with these magical experiences.
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.
