This is the time of year when all the weirdos come out to play!
And by weirdo I mean the high tech tree hugging entrepreneurs, your introverted extrovert friends who like to knit and also compete at slam poetry…
I say this with the utmost respect, and with a little insider knowledge, as I have both the Sun and Venus in Aquarius…
Season of Aquarius
Jan 19 – Feb 18, when the sun transits through the 11th zodiac sign.
It’s planetary associations are Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (modern.)
Where we find Aquarius in the chart is where we discover the power of individuality!
It is where you learn to love your personal take, your unique perspective, how you approach and relate to society.
It is where we honor our inner weirdo, where we learn how to be a friend and learn how to give our unique talents in service to humanity!
In its highest expression Aquarius teaches us how to BE ORIGINAL in a world that conditions us to be just like everyone else.
Aquarius is a transcendent sign, which means its overarching goal is to move the collective to overcome its societal conditioning.
Aquarius is a FIXED AIR sign.
It wants to stabilize intellect, thoughts, the realms of the mind.
How can this be when Aquarius is often known as flighty and detached personality-wise?
Well, the archetype itself is ruled by Saturn, the God of Boundaries and Constraints. It is part of the Aquarius nature to recognize its own edges so it knows where to push beyond them for progress, for growth…
It takes an incredibly mature intellect to be able to do this and maintain its integrity.
Aquarius is also ruled by Uranus, which means the Aquarius nature is to be a catalyst for change.
But as the most evolved AIR SIGN in the zodiac, Aquarius sees and knows the HIGHER IDEALS we ALL aspire to. In it’s quest to progress society toward this higher ideal, it nudges us all along to THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!
After all, you won’t find ORIGINAL thoughts INSIDE the box…
…and as Einstein (who btw was a NN Aquarius) said, you can’t fix the problem with the same level of thinking that got you in the conundrum to begin with…
The symbol of Aquarius, the Water Bearer (confusing people making it think that it is a water sign…not true…)
The water bearer image shows a woman (sometimes a man) holding two large jugs of water which is spilling forth, pouring it out onto the earth below…
This is symbolic of the impregnation of Gaia by Ouranos — Uranus, the SKy GOd, impregnating the Earth Goddess, Gaia below. This is a representation of the DIVINE WILL meeting with DIVINE LOVE to create something original that will advance human consciousness.
