Aquarius Horoscope (January 20 - February 18)
Your ruling planets are Uranus and Saturn.
The times they are a'changin' for you right now, Aquarius. You are making some active moves this month toward self-transcendence, although you may not realize what they are just yet. An important step is being taken in some part of your psyche. After major reconsiderations over these past few weeks of your very identity and the roots of your creativity also, you are more than ready to move ahead with important initiatives and new sets of plans. These schemes and dreams are more active at soul than surface level and may gently push your conscious mind into powerful new directions. The universe that drives your actions is ever empty, like the hub of a wheel, and yet full of potency, and always surprising.
As the month begins, there is a feeling of plugging yourself in more fully to the world around you. This is an important first two weeks of the month for you, as you spring-board off the energy of the New Moon of July 2nd taking place in your sector of discipleship to your highest intention for yourself. You are metaphorically putting your best foot forward at this time. Your values are slowly changing along the lines of deeper spiritual commitment; whether you are always entirely aware of this simple yet inescapable fact. The First Quarter Moon that comes along in the middle of the following week, on Wednesday, July 9th, represents a crux of change, when you will feel the heat of new conclusions adding themselves up in your mind and feel the weight of circumstance that seems to be directing or at least offering guidelines to the arc of your development. You are perhaps also becoming more aware, at this juncture, of old patterns of behavior that have ruled your life from below the level of your conscious attention for many years now. These behaviors, stemming from early childhood, are no longer viable for you in your present circumstance but represent a knee-jerk set of reactions that you bring to bear without quite knowing how it happened. Simply accepting these walled-off parts of yourself goes a long way toward healing these issues and coming to a greater level of integration. Your heart mind and body are as one, in all reality, and can function that way to your benefit so long as they are not sidetracked by the voices of the long-dead past. The Full Moon of the week following, taking place on Friday, July 18th, may represent a resolution of these issues and serves to connect outer circumstances with the mysteries of your inner world. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday the 25th signals a time when you will come to some interesting conclusions regarding the previous three weeks just past, and represents in the words of astrologer Dane Rudhyar a "crisis of awareness." Significant others in your life may come into the picture in a new way for you at this time. This entire last half of the month is a stage that may be characterized as one of contemplation rather than direct action, and a period when you will be gathering your energies for an exciting month of August to come.
