“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” ~ John F. Kennedy
Early this Friday morning, the Sun, which signifies the ego and basic urge to be, exited conventional Capricorn for experimental Aquarius (3:30 am), potentially setting the stage for us to channel or bring forth more of our spontaneous or unscripted side – or that part of our nature that perhaps seeks to chug along and do its own thing – make its own earth-shattering discoveries, live off the grid, etc., without having to feel unduly constrained or checked by the dictates or directives of the status quo.
Aquarius in Latin means “water bearer” or “cup bearer,” and its zodiac symbol of a man pouring water from a pitcher, suggests that Aquarius is concerned with infusing the world with new meaning. A good time to maybe seek to raise our vibration.
Uranus, the modern-day ruler of Aquarius, is viewed as an engine of change. It is linked with technology, innovation, and rapid advancement. It also rules our intuition as the higher octave of Mercury.
The sign of Aquarius also represents humanity, individuality, the collective, groups of people – as well as our network of friends and acquaintances. During Aquarius season we often seek to be a part of something larger. We are also often more interested in advocating for causes that are close to our heart.
We may also strive to be more accepting of others in an impersonal way – especially of the differences between us – even though we may also be more prone now to wanting to speak our minds, especially when we perceive things to be an affront or abridgement to our personal liberties. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, and can, consequentially, often adhere to very strong opinions or views – with natives of this sign often particularly fond of playing the role of the contrarian or devil’s advocate. The Sun will be in Aquarius until February 18th.
“People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the News: Yesterday US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated in a letter to congressional leaders that the US had reached its statutory debt limit (or debt ceiling) as of Thursday, and that Congress will need to take action by early June, to prevent default on its debt. On Wednesday, as you may recall, we had the annual Sun-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn; crisis-minded” Pluto – which typically excels at sounding the alarm bell – governs, among other things, debt and taxes, while Capricorn oversees the workings or machinations of government.
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
