January 19: The Sun Enters Aquarius
The moon is square Venus at 1:43 a.m.
After midnight, the Aries moon creates a feisty square with Venus in Capricorn. We don’t feel like our needs are being met at this time, craving validation, yet if we were to receive the attention we seek, we would likely still find ourselves dissatisfied. We might also convince ourselves that we are making selfless sacrifices when our aims are plainly self-serving, which we could be called out for.
Romances, in particular, may suffer from passive-aggressive tactics, and so it is perhaps better to create space to avoid starting arguments for sport. If a relationship begins under this influence, check-in with yourself to make sure you are not responding purely to an endorphin rush.
The moon is sextile Mercury at 9:54 a.m.
Come the morning, the Aries moon creates a sextile with Mercury in Aquarius, helping us out on the communication front, but still implying our energy may be best spent on solo pursuits where we have the independence necessary to experiment and do things at our own pace. While we are sociable at this time and value others’ perspectives, we require the freedom to break away from the herd at any time, so beware of making promises or agreeing to plans that require the aid of a more stable signature to get off the ground.
The sun enters Aquarius at 12:40 p.m.
After noon, the sun enters Aquarius, amplifying our need for independence and awakening our inner non-conformist. We are now less fearful of the road less traveled or doing the unorthodox thing. Being unpopular seems to pose less of a threat, in fact, it seems obvious that by following our weirder interests, we will attract the proper company. Community engagements are prioritized as the sun travels through the sign of the Water-bearer. We shine brightest when progressive, future-oriented, humanitarian sensibilities are allowed to take precedence over materialism.
As we continue to construct the empire we began to build while the sun traveled through Capricorn, we find ways to add to our legacy through experimentation, innovation, and collaboration, celebrating models of inclusivity and diversity. Deviation, indeed, rebellion, from the norm seems less threatening, because we pride ourselves on our individuality, interested in promoting not only our own freedom, but the freedom of all those we come in contact with.
