On January 20th the sun moves into the innovative, progressive sign of Aquarius. For the next thirty days, we are encouraged to embrace with makes us unique and also honor this uniqueness in others. This is an excellent time to develop the ability to think outside the box while remaining open-minded. We also may feel more compelled to embrace our rebellious side which will allow us to identify trends and possibilities for advancement well ahead of everyone else. If nothing else, this transit of Aquarius teaches us the importance of honoring the differences among us while still remembering that we are all a part of the greater collective that is humanity.
Aquarius Energy All Month Long
Under Aquarius energy, we are encouraged to adopt a logical, mental approach that allows us to see ourselves and the world in a different light. One of the benefits of Aquarius energy is its ability to understand that while we are all connected, we are also different in our own way. Aquarius’ ruler Uranus is the only planet that orbits differently from all the other planets in the solar system. While Uranus is a planet, its ability to move differently from all the other planets is something that makes it different but still very much part of the solar system.
Let’s get ready to let our freak flags fly! It’s Aquarius season, and it’s all about embracing who we are so that we are able to share our uniqueness of ourselves with others.
The Sci Fi, Alien Vibes
The one thing that makes Aquarius quite special is its association with everything sci-fi, alien, and technical. This is the sign that rules innovative, progressive advancements not only in consciousness but in other facets of society such as artificial intelligence, science and technology, and anything that could potentially advance the human experience. The only thing is that very often Aquarius is light years ahead of everyone else. This is the energy of the Jetsons where Aquarius is thinking about a flying car long before flying cars exist. While the concept of being ahead of the mainstream may seem ideal, oftentimes Aquarius energy finds itself on the outside looking in because of their progressive views and perspectives.
Sometimes, those with lots of Aquarius and Uranus energy are deeply aware that they don’t fit in. Some people even feel as if they could be alien and not really belong to their particular native group. Those who learn to harness Aquarius energy positively find that they are able to take those awkward feelings of being on the fringe and use them positively to make their mark in a way that advances themselves as well as humanity as a whole.
If you really want to get the vibe of what Aquarius is like, take a look at some of the sci-fi television series and movies. The whole term of being “far out” is definitely the energy of Aquarius.
A Progressive Mind
Due to the Uranus rulership, Aquarius is an air sign that appreciates communication and mental stimulation. However, what sets Aquarius apart from the other air signs of Gemini and Libra is that Aquarius is far more interested in engaging in conversations and sharing perspectives that are progressive. There is nothing more Aquarius enjoys than being in the company of people who can offer them a perspective that is far-reaching. Aquarius just doesn’t want to think about how things are done in a common way. This is a type of energy that is considered something far beyond normal. So, over the next 30 days we may find that being progressive in how we approach people, places, and circumstances is an advantage.
Our Place Amongst The Group
Aquarius has the ability to own its uniqueness while being part of the collective. During the Aquarius transit, we may consider our place amongst the group. A group could be anything from our friendship groups to the organizations that we associate with. When it comes to connecting to others, we choose friendship groups and associations based on commonalities. In order for us to connect to the right people, it is important that we first make space to identify who we are for ourselves.
During Aquarius season, we are urged to genuinely consider who we are and whether or not our friend groups and associations are a reflection of ourselves. When we are connected to people who are like-minded, we are less likely to feel that we are out of place. Sometimes it is necessary to review our group associations periodically to see if those connections are a current reflection of who we are. For example, the friendships that we formed five years ago may no longer be a reflection of who we are in this current moment. If we continue to hold on to associations that don’t reflect our own uniqueness in this now moment, that feeling of being out of place or alien can present itself.
Thus, we are encouraged to take a step back and deeply analyze whether or not our existing friendship groups and associations are a direct reflection of who we are at the current moment.
Breakthroughs For Progression
Aquarius and Uranus energy has the unique ability to shake us up to achieve progression. Sometimes we as individuals and as a collective can be very set in our ways. It is through the introduction of Aquarius and Uranus energy that we experience the unexpected that requires us to make changes. It is important to remember that Aquarius, no matter how open-minded and progressive, is still a fixed sign. This entails that the progressive insights and shifts that come with Aquarius energy are likely to create permanent changes that lead us on the path to something beyond what we’ve ever been or experienced.
Just think of going where no man has gone before. This is definitely the energy of Aquarius. Uranus shakes things up forcing us to let go of what is no longer applicable so that we can adopt new perspectives and ideas that lead to progressive advancement.
The Humanity of Us All
Finally, we can’t understand Aquarius without mentioning the humanitarian aspect of this sign. While Aquarius understands that everyone is unique in their own way, there is also the realization that we are still connected throughout humanity. Instead of trying to make everyone the same, Aquarius encourages us to see and acknowledge our differences and celebrate them without having to ostracize those who are different. It is through honoring our uniqueness that we are able to also understand that we are still connected as human beings.
It is for this reason that Aquarius makes one of the most considerate signs in the zodiac in terms of wanting to help others. So, during Aquarius season we may find that we are innately drawn to reaching out to others who while different in ways are still bonded to us via the human experience.
Ultimately, Aquarius season gives us all the opportunity to embrace our uniqueness and then honor the uniqueness of others while still remembering that while we may be different in some ways, we are still connected through our humanity. When we understand that we are all connected, we can operate in a fashion that allows us to make evolutionary leaps and bounds that help to progress humanity in a positive manner. Here’s to the innovative, unique energy of Aquarius.
