In the Stars for February


In the Stars for February

Winter progresses forward while the transiting Sun moves through the air sign Aquarius, the water bearer.  The energy that is being poured out from the vase is representative of the creative energy of the universe. Aquarius represents humanitarian concerns, knowledge, innovations, progressive actions, and electromagnetic radiations. Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus.  Aquarians those born between Jan.20th-Feb.18th, are friendly to all yet detached and aloof. Some appear to be spacy busy within their own minds. They are concerned with what is best for humanity and like to share their knowledge and compassion for others; it’s a duty with some of these folks. They like to be part of reforms, community programs those that share a futuristic vision. They are effective in overthrowing outdated conventions. Paradoxically, they can be stubborn, inconsistent, selfish, intolerant, impatient, rebellious, and conceited or concerned,  compassionate, caring peace-loving individuals. They have a large assortment of friends from all walks of life. They like groups that think like them. Yet they can be difficult to understand as they are often erratic, and hard to reach as Aquarius is a fixed air sign perhaps their minds are in the stars. They can be egoistic exploring new gadgets, ideas, as they are looking for the innovative in all things. Happy Birthday Aquarius, this year, for most you born in late January, can be challenging as Uranus in Taurus, your Sun’s ruler forms an action stress aspect. This is challenging you to change and shift your priorities, and it can be bringing changes in what you focus on, like work, purpose in life, etc. Resistance is futile so it’s best to go with the flow.
