AquariusJanuary 20 - February 18
Aquarius, it’s smooth sailing for a while! Over the next few days we’ll be experiencing Mars (planet of action) harmoniously connecting with Saturn (career, structures, physical manifestation). This can feel like full circle moments, new ideas and overcoming challenges – especially when it comes to making practical moves in the world. Aquarius, you’ll also be experiencing harmony in your inner world, as Saturn connects with the Moon in your sign. You might suddenly receive ideas about how to marry the two realms. For example, how to connect your inner core with your career, or your passions with your practical daily tasks. Enjoy the sense of ease that’s coming through Aquarius, you deserve this and more.
New! KTZ Compatibility
Key themes: respectful intimacy, mental health, career, finances, pleasure.
October begins with Mercury going direct in the sign of Virgo. For the past 9 days or so, you’ve been considering your energetic mergings, especially the ones that consume you. Now you’ll be able to work towards an intimacy that’s careful and respectful, and you’ll be able to cut ties with the ones that don’t allow for this to occur.
On the 8th, Pluto also goes direct, in the sign of Capricorn, where it’s been for the past 14 years. During its retrograde, you got a chance to see how you deal with endings and matters of the past, and how they affects your psyche. Pluto’s slow, so this realization isn’t something so evident, it happens at a very steady pace. When it turns direct, it’ll be easier for you to embrace your spiritual nature, and to connect with deeply buried emotions that need to be processed and released.
This month, the Full Moon will happen in Aries, on the 9th at 4:55pm EST. A light will be shining on your communications and daily interactions. Pay attention to your inner dialogue, and work on making it more self-affirming. Discover yourself in your exchanges instead of disregarding yourself for what you haven’t yet communicated or accomplished. Life is a process, and you hold the intuition to know when and where to open the doors that can lead you to the next stage of your life.
Mercury will re-enter Libra on the 10th, taking you back to the things you were experiencing or thinking about surrounding your beliefs, what inspires you, and the paradigms that have the power to support you between August 26th and September 22nd. Remember that you can’t move forward if you’re hanging on to ideas that no longer light you up.
Saturn also goes direct this month on the 23rd in the sign of Aquarius, making it easier for you to trust your inner drive. Allow yourself to go against the current if you have to. You may even need to go against what you once were, that which you know you no longer are. Remember that your energy and your time are precious, use it while you have it.
Also on the 23rd, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, followed by the Sun, and on the 25th we welcome the second eclipse season of the year with a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. Things are shifting within your career and long-term goals. You may not have much clarity as to where these changes may lead you. Don’t despair, be there to hold space, and start making moves towards the kind of professional freedom you desire.
On the 28th, Jupiter retrograde will re-enter the sign of Pisces, bringing back some of the wisdom we began to tap into at the beginning of May. In your case, it has to do with spending your resources on what matters, and building a life of abundance with what you have. Make this time about untangling yourself from what drains you, and investing your energy in what sustains you.
Mercury will join Venus and the Sun in Scorpio on the 29th, inviting you to use your words as if they were healing magic. Ask to be liberated by the things that have your energy under arrest.
On the 30th, Mars will go retrograde in Gemini for the next two and a half months, helping you tap into the things that stir your passion and your life force. Surrendering to your body’s desire for pleasure can be a revolutionary act. This is a very creative time for you, remember to be yourself.

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.
