Banish and conjure and the same time, sipping champagne on a airplane: Aquarius Season is from January 20-February 18 

Welcome to Aquarius season! Adios, world! Catch me surfin’ the Milky Way, tbh. I’m a February 9th Aquarius, and it is MY TIME, my dudes. Okay, so let’s get into it… Aquarius is a fixed air sign. What tf does that mean? Air signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius) are practically connect to this planet through their intellect—what I mean by that is that we are literally hanging on by a thread, and that thread is the mind. Air signs are fair, and we make a good mediator because we love to solve problems. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) round out and stabilize the zodiac. We follow the lead of cardinal signs by making their ideas a reality.

To me, Aquarius season can be summed up in like one damn word, and that word is alien. Aquarius is the most eccentric sign (not just according to me, but mostly according to me), and deals with revolution, cutting edge thinking, friendship, and loyalty. Aquarius like ~knows they know~ and can sometimes be stubborn and brutally honest, but like don’t we all need someone who knows what the hell is up to tell us what to do? If you’re nodding, then Aquarius is your guy, because they’re the most cosmically connected sign... and I know, I know, I’m an Aquarius, but hear me out: the out of this world alien-ness of Aquarius somehow brings like this crazy spin to things that are actually really good ideas. Basically if you know you know. What does this even mean?

Listen. Not to be overly dramatic or anything, but I think Aquarius season opens a portal for deep truth and understanding. This is our (very welcomed) first transition of the year. We are moving from ~work hard, take no breaks boss bitch~ Capricorn mode to ~I think therefore I am a boss bitch~ Aquarius mode. 

During this time, we are all likely to experience idea-whiplash (this is what I call it now when you have so many ideas you don’t know what to do with them). Aquarius is creative, generative, and frankly, pretty fuckin’ brilliant. When you have an out-there idea, tell somebody, because I’d be willing to make it a true Jeopardy and bet it all that it’s actually an idea that not only sparkles, but also has legs. The only downside to this is that you will likely ~know~ your idea is brilliant, and it’s realllllll easy to come off like a jerk when this happens. Maybe other people have ideas, too, idk? 

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus AND Saturn. Uranus rules (my favorite) disruption and abruptness—think literal revolutions and, like, massive change. Saturn is basically the opposite: responsibility, structure, commitment. This is why Aquarius is driven to make the world a better place.

Things to focus or journal on during this season:

  • How can I be my most authentic self?

  • How might I be one of the helpers?

  • What are my special traits or talents?

  • What makes me stand out?

  • What can I do to meet new people during this time (Aquarius is also big on networking, and this time is one of the best to meet up and make new friends... maybe even put out some feelers for some new career connections)?

  • How can I cultivate and nurture my current relationships?
