The sun will officially move into the sign of Aquarius on January 19, 2021 ushering in a month of innovative, original, rebellious energy. Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius teaches us that it is okay for us to be a little different and march to the beat of our own drum. It is said that Aquarius loves humanity but doesn’t necessarily love people.
This saying is attributed to the fact that Aquarius is often the friendly loner that is often perceived as being detached and aloof. As an air sign being in the “head” is quite true for Aquarius as it allows for the neutrality that allows them to process information as well as easily free themselves from that which suppresses freedom. So, let’s give it up for Aquarius, the original innovator that is willing to risk everything in order to live free and authentic. May this Aquarius season inspire us all to march to the beat of our drum and be unapologetically ourselves.
The following is an overview of the general astrological aspects occurring during Aquarius season which occurs from January 19, 2021, to February 18, 2021.
Sun conjunct Saturn-1/23/21
The sun in Aquarius will align directly with the current transiting Saturn in Aquarius making duty and responsibility a priority. The sun’s connection with Saturn makes for a desire to own our experience and make practical sense of our lives. This conjunction in the sign of Aquarius increases a dedication and duty to social causes and humanitarianism as well as ensuring that new innovations are implemented in a responsible manner. Saturn touching the sun can increase responsibilities so it is important to monitor how much we take on at this time to avoid feeling burdened. Being responsible and accountable at this time is advantageous.
Sun square Uranus-1/26/21
There could be an overwhelming desire to break free from anyone or anything that oppresses personal freedom with this transiting aspect. However, with the tense energies between the Sun and Uranus, personal expression and freedom are likely to cause some tension. Uranus energy is likely to bring displeasure of conforming, and there is likely to be a desire to suddenly break away from all that oppresses the native solar energy. The best way to deal with this energy is to expect the unexpected and explore the inner tensions that are causing a desire to “break free.” In doing this, the need for radical change expressed by this transit can be honored with decreased negative implications.
Sun conjunct Jupiter-1/28/21
Get ready to experience the Midas touch from Jupiter himself. The Sun in Aquarius standing with Jupiter in Aquarius, the planet of blessings, fortune, and prosperity, makes for a very auspicious time. Opportunities could present themselves that benefit our existence. Feelings of overall happiness, optimism, and faith are likely. With the Jupiter influence, there is a desire to expand which can be beneficial at this time. The only precaution is to avoid taking on too much and/or seeking more than you can handle as this energy can promote excess.
Sun square Mars-2/1/21
With tense aspects between the sun’s ego expression and Mars the planet of action, there are likely to be some internal and/or external influences that appear to be against you. Perhaps there is competition from male figures, and due to the influence of the sun, ego issues are likely to be highlighted. This transit can produce general frustration that can lead to defensive behavior and aggression. It is never wise to bottle up Martian energy. Thus, use some form of physical activity to alleviate the combustible energy that is common with this aspect.
Sun trine North Node-2/5/21
The Aquarius sun is forming a lovely, easy-going aspect to the transiting North Node in Gemini. Effective, positive communication is highlighted due to the influence of the air signs. The North Node speaks of our spiritual path forward, and it is very likely under this influence to meet communicative (Gemini) individuals and/or circumstances that assist with helping us step into our solar light and expression.
Sun conjunct Mercury-2/8/21
With the Sun and Mercury sitting together in the sign of Aquarius, expect there to be an increase in communication that gets us to think outside the box. Aquarius deals with what is different, unique, and creates radical change. Communication at this time will be highlighted with these themes, and this is a great time to be open-minded as Aquarius changes consciously through considering what is other than the norm. It should be noted that in true Aquarian form, this transit could also produce communication that is “shocking” or “off-beat.”
The Special Spotlight on Aquarius
This 2021 Aquarius season is especially interesting because of the tenanted Aquarius transits. Currently, both Saturn and Jupiter, along with the Sun, are transiting Aquarius providing extra support for those with Aquarius placements. Likewise, Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is transiting the sign of stable Taurus creating massive, radical changes to our existing structures. While much of these changes may feel uncomfortable at times, Aquarius understands that a bit or a lot of discomfort is necessary to finally free ourselves from imposed beliefs that do not allow us to live authentically. Happy solar return to the Aquarians that teach us the importance of embracing our true selves by breaking away from the established “norms.”
