AquariusJanuary 20 - February 18
Aquarius, allow yourself to dream about the long term when things feel uncertain. The Moon is still in Virgo, inviting us to connect with our natural rhythms until Tuesday night when it shifts into Libra, bringing awareness to what it means to be in relationship with ourselves and the world around us. A shift in energy occurs on Tuesday, when Mars leaves its home sign and enters the slow moving, pleasure seeking sign of Taurus until August 20th. How would you describe your relationship with the world at large? Do you feel worthy or unworthy? Do you feel too good for or not good enough? Or have you found ways to establish a nice balance? The more you bring balance to your ego, the more you can embrace your potential and apply it in ways you can be proud of. Mercury also leaves its home sign to enter nurturing, safety seeking Cancer until July 19th. Activating communication, and bringing more movement and engagement into your wellness practices.
Key Themes: creativity, community, social life, fun, connection to nature, healing.
Aquarius, the month of June starts out with Mercury going direct in Taurus on the 3rd. I invite you to take a look at the things you were reviewing from May 23rd until now concerning your home, family, foundations, ancestry and need for stability and security. It’ll be easier for you to find and create safe spaces where you feel nurtured.
On the 4th, Saturn goes retrograde in Aquarius until October 23rd, and you may start to feel the weight of your responsibilities when it comes to self-discipline and staying true to yourself. You may be faced with the fear of change. This is a time to connect to your willpower and to rest within the truth of who you are. You don’t need to rebel against any structure or authority in order to know yourself.
On the 13th, Mercury will re-enter Gemini, bringing back themes that were present between April 30th and May 22nd, concerning your self-expression, your creative fire, romance, and your connection to your children and your inner child. Where things may have backfired before, you’ll be able to see and act more clearly now.
The Full Moon in Sag occurs on the 14th at 7:52am EST, highlighting the importance of friendship, and how much you’ve been able to heal within your bonds during the past six months. It’ll be easier for you to see the strengths and quality of your connections, and the issues that need to be addressed.
Cancer Season comes rolling in on the 21st, shifting the energy into more of an inner, emotional, grounding and security seeking mood. A light will be shining on your area of health, wellness, daily rituals, service and work. This will be a good time to do some spring cleaning. Decluttering and reorganizing the spaces you inhabit can be a super healing and regenerative practice for you during this Season.
On the 22nd, Venus moves into Gemini until July 17th, and this will be a very flirty, talkative and creative time for your love life, especially with Mercury in the mix. Get out there, say yes to the invitations, it’s time to activate your social life and allow yourself to have some fun.
On the 28th, Neptune will go retrograde in Pisces until December 3rd, and you’ll be asked to ground yourself and become more present with the tangible world. Go out into nature. Take up gardening. Play with animals. Connect to your body through bubble baths, meditations, dancing, running, or whatever can help you to sink deeper into your physicality.
The New Moon in Cancer also happens on the 28th at 10:52pm EST, highlighting the importance you’ve placed on your healing during the past six months. Use these days to get clear on what you wish to accomplish during the next six months, especially when it comes to your health and your work life. Keep in mind the needs of your body, heart and soul when mapping out your day-to-day plans. It’s time to create a life where deep healing can occur.

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.
