KnowAquarius December ’23 Scope

Key themes: spaces of quiet, solitude, leadership and magnetism, connection to your body and your intuition, transformative conversations within your groups, routines that feel good

Dear Aquarius,

The month of December begins with Mercury moving into Capricorn on the 1st. The energy of Mercury in Capricorn in the deepest area of your chart will lead you towards much needed moments of quiet and hibernation. Your mind will get lost within your inner landscapes. Let it happen, much will be uncovered, especially during the retrograde period. This process will require rest and moments of solitude, and time away from social media.

Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will enter the depths of Scorpio on the 4th, where it will be until the 29th. This happens in your area of career and long-term goals. This is a time for you to shine within your professional life. Reach out to the ones that can help catapult your ambitions to the next level. Your leadership will be noticed, and your magnetism and charm will be on fire.

Neptune will go direct on the 6th in Pisces, where it has been helping you connect with what truly holds value. It has been a wild ride when it comes to your connection to your body and its needs. You’ve been able to soften the rational mind in order to make more space for intuition. With still a couple more years left to go on this transit, don’t forget that if you feel it in your guts and in your bones, you should pay attention to it.

We have the New Moon in Sag on the 12th, at 6:32 pm EST, happening in your area of community and the causes that move you. If dynamics are shifting within certain groups and friendships, don’t turn a blind eye to what’s going on. And don’t be so afraid of facing things that you leave before having the conversations that can end up being healing, transformative and offer everyone the clarity to decide what’s truly best. Recognize the difference between respecting your boundaries and being too afraid to face conflict.

On the 13th, Mercury goes retrograde until January 1st, giving the end of 2023 a reflective mood. This time gives you a chance to review the unpaved roads of your inner landscapes. The first 10 days of this transit will be a time to get deep with certain issues that you thought were ancient history but that have resurfaced and are calling out for your attention yet again.

We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st, shining a light on the reflective journey that Mercury retrograde is taking you through. For you the end of the year is always about slowing down and recharging. Take a moment to yourself, to recalibrate, to clear your head, your heart and your psyche. Make a ritual out of this. Start the year renewed.

Then on the 23rd Mercury moves back into Sag, connecting you with the things that were going on within your social life during the last week of November, offering a deeper perspective.

On the 26th, we have the Full Moon in Cancer, becoming exact at 7:33 pm EST, shining a light on work and health routines. This is a fertile moment for professional opportunities. This Moon highlights the advancements that you have been able to make by tending to the tasks at hand, and what you’re able to create with consistent effort. You’re learning how to best nurture your work and your daily routines, pay attention to how things feel, and follow what feels good.

Also on the 26th, Chiron goes direct in Aries in your area of communication and exchanges. Reminding you that the cure you seek may be hiding in the books you read, the podcasts you listen to, or the casual conversations that come up in your day-to-day life.

On the 29th, Venus will enter Sag, where it will be for the next 26 days, inviting you to take a journey through your friendships, communities and causes that move you. This is a time to reach out. Connect with the ones that can uplift your work, your ideas, your spirits, your understanding of what you have to give to the world, and the impact you’re already making. Put your visions into words. Work on being more interdependently supportive and supported. Don’t wait for the invitation. Make yourself available.

As Jupiter goes direct in Taurus on the 30th, your roots will keep deepening, strengthening and expanding, and with it your sense of groundedness and belonging in the world. Can you feel it? This is a great energy to close the year and to think about your New Year’s Resolutions.

2023 hasn’t been easy, personally or collectively, and 2024 will be a year of big shifts and revelations with Pluto moving into Aquarius. We are moving towards the world we want to see come true, and even if at times we may feel close to losing hope, we’ll all be creating the kinds of connections and communities where we feel more supported within our personal and collective dreams. Connection is what will create the possibilities that will overshadow the feelings of hopelessness.

As Mercury goes direct in Sag on the first day of 2024, start the year with this mantra “My hopes and dreams are not capricious. I surround myself with the ones that respect and make space for my desires and ambitions. I know I can turn my creative fire into something so beautiful. So, I spend time in the realms that my passion leads me to”.

KnowAquarius November ’23 Scope

Key themes: communicating, becoming more creative with how you make a living, expanding your perspectives, collaboration, community, causes that move you, the work that you do in the world, paying it forward

Dear Aquarius, we may all still be feeling a bit jet lagged from the eclipse season. What hunger have you been left with when it comes to your need for safety and emotional security? It’s time that you begin to communicate these needs, to be more honest about how you want to be taken into consideration, and even how you want to be taken care of. This doesn’t make you weak. It takes so much strength and self confidence to be this vulnerable.

November arrives with Saturn shifting to go direct on the 4th in the ethereal sign of Pisces. This is happening in your area of resources and values, where for the past months you’ve been reviewing what you want to invest in, and how you can avoid monetary leaks. These next two years are a time to let go of the outdated ways of making a living, the ones that leave you dry and with very little reward, and to step into new, more abundant and fertile ways of sustaining your life. Listen to your intuition, and trust your creativity.

On the 8th, Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will leave Virgo to enter its home sign of Libra, where it will be until December 4th. In your area of adventure and expansion, you’re being invited to come out of your comfort zone in order to connect to the kind of pleasure that you’ve yet to experience. Stretch your view of the world in order to include beliefs that are different from yours. There’s a beautiful balancing act that happens when you’re open to meet another where they are at without leaving yourself behind. Your one-on-one relations have so much wisdom to share with you. Allow them to be a mirror.

On the 10th, Mercury, the Planet of Communication and Exchange, will enter the wisdom-seeking sign of Sag, where it will be until December 1st. This happens within your friendships, communities and the causes that stir you, making it a great time to reach out and connect with the ones who you can co create with, support, or be supported by. Put your visions and ideas out into the world. This is not a time to go at it alone. Don’t wait to be invited, make yourself available, let them know you wish to collaborate.

The New Moon in Scorpio is happening on the 13th, exact at 4:27 am EST, in your area of career and long-term goals, emphasizing the energy you’ve been swimming in since Scorpio Season began on October 23rd. What does the professional freedom you desire look like? Write about it in excruciating detail. Meditate and envision it. Ask to be liberated from what has your energy under arrest. How do you wish to grow through the work that you do in the world? What does this even mean for you? Connect with these questions, allow yourself to experience how they feel on the inside. There’s a power and a magic to this practice.

On the 22nd, we move into Sag Season, as the Sun shifts into the sign of the Centaur, and Mars follows its lead on the 24th, remaining in Sag until January 4th. This happens in the area of your life that rules the people and spaces that offer you a sense of belonging. If you’ve been feeling out of place lately, this will slowly begin to shift. Remember that showing up for others doesn’t just feed them and yourself, this has a way to expand out into the collective. Remember that every act of kindness has the ability to soften a heart and to get paid forward. Honor the ones that have shown up and continue to show up for you.

The Full Moon in Gemini is happening on the 27th, exact at 4:16 am EST, in your area of creative self-expression, reminding you how potent your intentions can be. Your talents are ready to support you, your dreams want to come into being, your community is ready to offer a helping hand. Remember that success isn’t about getting there first or being lonely at the top. Your friends help you rise, and you help your friends rise.

I’ll leave you with a poem from Nayyirah Waheed that says: “you will find your way. it is in the same place as your love.”

KnowAquarius October ’23 Scope

Key themes: expanding your perspectives, being with your healing process, letting go of what doesn’t serve, planting seeds towards your professional growth, taking a leap, reassessing how you want to keep moving forward, taking good care of yourself

Dear Aquarius, the month of October begins with a reminder to stop reminiscing and dwelling in the past. Step into the path that’s right in front of you, the one that will lead you forward. There’s so much to be conquered and these next two weeks and a half can help you get clear and lay out a plan of action. Take things step by step. Know that you’re exactly where you need to be. As Mercury will be transiting Libra in your area of freedom and philosophical pursuits, indulge in your desire to learn something new. Let your mind be blown, let your perspectives shift. Keep expanding.

On the 8th, Venus is entering Virgo, where it will be during the next month, bringing some sweetness into your spaces of intimacy, your shared resources and your collaborations. When it comes to investments, loans, debts and grants, follow your intuition. You may feel rawer than usual this month, so be gentle with yourself if anxiety emerges. Accept the invitation of turning your pain into beauty, of transforming your grief, loss or sorrow into poetry and art. It doesn’t have to be for the world to see. It can be just for you, and your intimate circle if you wish. This is a time to heal.

Pluto is going direct on the 10th, where it will make its last stretch through Capricorn before heading back into Aquarius in January. These past 15 years have been intense, as Pluto has been taking you on a ride to purge from your subconscious the things that drain you and weigh you down. Keep cultivating your need for deep rest and relaxation, keep creating spaces where you can escape from the buzz of social media and be free from screen time.

On the 12th, Mars will enter its home sign of Scorpio, helping us all get deep and serious about the pursuit of our goals. The next month and a half will be the perfect time to get things done. This is a very high point for you professionally. This is the time to take those first steps, to plant those seeds towards the things you want to see grow within your professional life in the long run. This is no time to doubt or to sell yourself short. Just go for it!

Eclipse Season is back, as we welcome the New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra becoming exact at 1:55 pm on the 14th. This will bring an expanse in your perspectives. This Eclipse wants you to understand just how free you are. It wants you to ask yourself what you want to do with your freedom. This is an invitation to take a leap of faith. You know what you need to do in order to move beyond what you have grown way too comfortable putting up with. Outgrowing people and situations is only natural. What shouldn’t be taken as natural is staying there anyways. You don’t need to prove anything to anybody but yourself. Take the leap!

We welcome Scorpio Season, with Mercury entering Scorpio on the 22nd, followed by the Sun on the 23rd. This is a great time to review your career and life path. What are your goals and how are you approaching them? Does your approach help you to feel more or less empowered? If your ambitions have been turning into a cause of stress, take the time to reassess how you want to keep moving forward. Make sure to find ways for your goals to serve as impulse for your creative energy.

The month of October comes to an end with the second Eclipse of the Season, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, becoming exact at 4:24 pm on the 28th. This is a super rich time for exploring nurturing ways of taking care of yourself. This Eclipse wants you to cultivate settings where your body and your nervous system can just relax. Take your needs more seriously, and try being playful about it, try things out and if they don’t work try something else. Tend to clearing out any emotional patterns that no longer offer safety. Tend to mothering yourself in ways your parents couldn’t.

KnowAquarius September ’23 Scope

Key themes: how and where you invest your energy, feeling comfortable with pleasure, tending to you home and emotional needs and that of your loved ones, letting go of what no longer serves, honoring your process, opening up to new experiences

Dear Aquarius,
It’s important that you make a consistent practice out of checking in and readjusting your boundaries. How you’re investing your energy, time, and resources may be going through some glitches, and it’s not as easy for you to have as much handle over this as you’re used to. With Mercury retrograding through your collaborations, financial mergings and intimate spaces, it’s an important time to review your debts, loans and agreements, on a financial as well as an emotional level. Connecting with your shadow side will help you know how to take better care of yourself.

Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through your one-on-one relationships —lovers, BFFs, business partners— most likely bringing up unfinished business and people from your past. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. Keep questioning and shedding the myths and narratives that keep you from true sweetness, intimacy and pleasure.

The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of home, family and roots, bringing a sense of well-being, expansion and abundance to your sense of security and groundedness. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about the home projects that need to get done, and finding ways in which you can make your home feel more regenerative. How can you bring more care, more life and more love into your space? Maybe adopt a kitty or puppy, bring some plants into the home, place an altar for your ancestors, create more moments of self-care and more moments of quality family time.

On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion, shedding a light on what you need to untether and move on from. It’s ok to outgrow relationships, projects, investments, collaborations. It’s time for you to be radical about respecting your need to cut ties.

We have the New Moon in Virgo on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, reminding you that life is a process. We all have demons, and when you see a finished product you only see its beauty, but you have no idea what it had to go through to get there. Only you know what you need to get through to be a functioning person in the world. Hold that. Honor that. Don’t put yourself down for it. Your struggle only makes you stronger. The darkness of this Moon, and its process into the light, wants to help you identify and connect with the people and the practices that help you live a life with less self-condemnation, doubt, and devaluation of your value and your gifts.

On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. The things that you feel have too much of a hold on you will begin to loosen up little by little and you’ll be able to have clearer vision when looking forward, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.

We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, inviting you to ask bold questions and to put things to the test. Don’t get stuck in your mind, go out and experience the things that you’re feeling curious about. There are mysteries to explore that go beyond the human intellect. This is a time of expansion, and it will invite you to make a choice between investing in yourself and the path you’re currently opening up to, or clinging to the past, and what you have no power to change or do over. Remember that you can’t forge a new path while being stuck in a paradigm that doesn’t support it.

On the 29th, we will have the Full Moon in Aries at 5:57 am EST, and it will bring important messages for you to pay attention to. What you say carries weight, and the ways in which you communicate in high pressure situations will be brought to your attention. Things may be busier for you these days, so make sure you take control over your schedule, not it over you. The same goes for your emotions. Be mindful about the impressions you want to leave on others.

KnowAquarius August ’23 Scope

Key themes: staying true to your truth, exploring what emotional security means for you, letting your weird out and bringing it into your close bonds, deepening the quality of how you bond, ideas that offer you meaning, letting go of old and outdated habits.

Dear Aquarius, we kick the month of August off with the Full Moon in your sign becoming exact at 2:31 pm EST, on the 1st. This is your Moon, it’s happening in your area of self-discovery and identity, shining its caring light upon you. This is an invitation to accept your present as it is and your past for what it has been. Embrace and honor yourself for what you’ve made out of your life. Stop expecting or asking others for acceptance, especially if they’re too afraid to accept themselves. Keep walking your path, no matter how vertiginous it may feel at times especially when you don’t feel validated. But know that when you’re true to your path, you begin to align to the ones that resonate with your truth.

Venus will be retrograde throughout all of the month of August and into the first days of September. This is an event that happens once every 18 months, and brings with it a deeper understanding to what we want from our relationships, how our current relationships are flowing and how open we are to intimacy. This 40 day transit is happening in Leo in your area of partnerships. What narratives do you hold around pleasure, intimacy and commitment? Allow yourself to have conversations around this. Do automatic writing with this question as a prompt. Bring this to therapy. You’re coming into a new way of allowing yourself to love and be loved. What relationships are and what they mean is changing so fast. Old paradigms and roles are falling apart. This is a beautiful time for you to become vulnerable enough to bring clarity to the kind of support and emotional security you need in relationship.

On the 16th, we have the New Moon in Leo, highlighting this Venus retrograde process. This will be an especially intense Moon, as it will also be conjunct Black Moon Lilith and square Uranus. This is a beautiful time to work on being just as good, nurturing and loving to yourself as you wish your loved ones would. This is what will let you let love in. This is what will soften you to deepen the care within your current bonds. You may be faced with having to hold space for some uncomfortable and unexpected parts of those you’re in commitment with. And you may also need to be vulnerable enough to let them hold the weird that you’re discovering within yourself.

Welcome Virgo season! A light will be shining on your energetic mergings, inviting you to consider them with greater discernment. The passion that comes from deep bonding doesn’t have to be all consuming. It can be a fire that is carefully tended to together. Work on deepening the quality of how you share yourself with your lovers and co-conspirators. Mercury also goes retrograde here in Virgo on the same day, the 23rd, inviting you to look at where the lack of depths lies. Work on what makes you feel safer. Work on holding space for open communication. Strengthen your mutual respect.

On the 27th, Mars shifts from Virgo to Libra into your area of philosophical pursuits and need for freedom. If you find yourself becoming too defensive with your beliefs, take a time to pause and feel into where this is coming from. The need to over-explain yourself, the need for others to understand your ideas and points of view, especially when it stops being a real dialogue, can point towards wounds that have to do with belonging. Don’t forget that these wounds, even if you may be going through them on your own, tend to be collective. You are not alone. Your time is better spent finding meaning than striving to be right.

On the next day, Uranus will be going into its yearly retrograde phase for the next 5 months. What ways of being have become unbearable for you? The patterns of your past that need to be broken are becoming ever more evident. Give yourself space for change.

We end the month of August with the Full Moon in the sign of Pisces becoming exact at 9:35 pm EST, on the 30th. This happens in your area of resources and sense of self-worth, magnifying your relationship to your assets. What parts of your livelihood are making you feel more alive? It’s a good time to get into the nitty gritty of your financial life and to get clear on what is possible for you with what you currently have. It’s also a good time too think of ways in which you can monetize on your skills and talents, if this is something you feel you want, need and/or have the time and energy for. But most of all, it’s a beautiful time to invest —time, energy, resources— in the things that bring you pleasure, and that ground you and deepen your connection to your body.

The north node in Aries and the south node in Libra have been settling into your area of communication and daily rituals and your area of philosophical pursuits and expansion, respectively. Let your curiosity lead the way these next 18 months, allow yourself to let go of outdated beliefs, no matter how long they’ve accompanied you on your journey.

KnowAquarius July ’23 Scope

Key themes: shadow work, rest, release, deep sleep, alone time, collaborations, financial negotiations, loving conversations, mending bonds, prioritizing your time, pleasure, healthy boundaries.

Dear Aquarius, as July swoops in with the Full Moon in Capricorn becoming exact on the 3rd at 7:38 am EST, it begs you to just do you. There are things in your life that are culminating, and your body, emotionality and nervous system are in need of deep rest and renewal. Also, the projects that you have been developing behind the scenes will be pulled to your focus. They need to be nurtured and protected a bit longer, as soon enough they will be ready to come out into the light. Enjoy this time with them, where it’s just you that knows and that is feeding into their potential.

As Mars enters Virgo on the 10th, it brings the ideal energy for collaborations and for merging financial resources. If you’ve been meaning to apply for loans, grants, or scholarships this is the time. If a negotiation or exchange feels off, trust your instinct, don’t go into any financial business out of fear or urgency. Don’t despair, trust that what’s truly for you will come.

On the 11th, we have another shift in energy when Mercury moves into Leo in your area of partnerships and commitment, where you’ll feel the urge to speak from the heart. Your closest relationships will serve as mirrors during the next two and a half weeks, reflecting the parts of yourself that are craving to be seen. Allow yourself to play, and communicate your needs clearly with as much warmth and childlike innocence as possible.

As the North Node enters Aries for the next 18 months on the 17th, it brings focus to your daily activities. Many things come to fruition with the right routines, but little can be done with the wrong ones. You have much to say. Make sure that you’re not wasting your time and energy on projects that don’t make space for the messages you most want to bring to the world. If you find that the sentiments and ideas that move you are missing from the popular dialogue, it’s your task to start the conversation.

The Sun enters the passionate sign of Leo on the 22nd, shining a light on your partnerships and commitments. Venus goes retrograde on the same day, and will be in backwards motion for the next six weeks. What will come up for review will have to do with the ideas and myths that you hold when it comes to relationships, commitment and pleasure. Is it possible that the narratives that you hold around love are keeping you from what feels good?

On the next day, Chiron goes retrograde in Aries, inviting you to be more present in the most mundane everyday activities and interactions. This is where the healing is taking place. How are you a part of your environment?

Pluto will find itself right in the middle between the North and South Node on the 23rd, 25th and 28th. Here Pluto is serving as a link between the past and the future, pointing towards what we need to let go of in order to move forward. Pluto is inviting you to tap into the ways your body and soul are in need of rest, recoup and healing. There’s so much for you to release during what’s left of the year, and this requires stillness and the willingness to go through it. This process will make it easier for you to connect with —and be able to more freely— speak your truth.

On the 28th, Mercury will enter Virgo, reminding you of the importance of investing your time and your energy wisely. You are your most valuable asset. Avoid burning out, and be picky about what you put yourself into.
