Aquarius Horoscope (January 20 - February 18)
Your ruling planets are Uranus and Saturn.
It is an interesting period of time that you are engaged in right now, Aquarius. With potential confusion over motivation and in deciding just how cause and effect works its way out in your life, you are tempted to hold back and rest on previous laurels. But in spite of this you are opting for change instead of remaining stuck. New perspectives on your life come daily, and some will not have legs, so that you are beset with uncertainties in the midst of your essential optimism. The most important task facing you is to have the courage of your inner conviction, no matter what outer appearances may seem to indicate. If you can maintain your trust in the universe to guide you, you will find that things will work themselves out to your ultimate best advantage.
As the month begins, you are coming to a new way of seeing your world, through actual physical travel or simply through the medium of your everyday experience. With Mercury retrograde in your sector of higher mind, you are also likely right now to be continually rethinking your position. You are arriving, by a process that is as much unconscious as it is conscious, to a sense of participation mystique with the cosmos, as reflected in your relationship with everyone around you and even within your own body. With the First Quarter Moon of Tuesday, October 7th, this sense of mystical involvement may become at odds with the practical side of your nature, which is also a powerful factor for you at this time. A deep sense of spiritual optimism pervading your thoughts right now takes you a long way toward a new beginning. You might also at this time find yourself dealing with old blueprints of behavior that stem from an earlier era of your life and that do not entirely serve you in the present moment. In common with the rest of humanity, you may have demons which you have chosen to wall off rather than to integrate. Revisiting these archaic patterns could have a positive effect as you come to accept parts of your personality that have long been shunned and with that acceptance find healing. The Full Moon that comes along a week later is important in this regard, since it signals a time when you are prepared to take a stand for what you believe, and when you are ready to share your deepest truth with a larger circle. The Last Quarter Moon of the 21st represents a time to gather the wisdom you have gained and as a result to eventually come to a greater feeling of wholeness. You win when you remain in sync with both the surface areas of your mind and as well with the deep core of your unconscious process. The practical and the visionary within you are pulling in different directions right now, and the trick is to come to a balance. You definitely benefit from keeping both perspectives in mind, potentially conflicting though they may be, and to honor the possibility of a paradoxical third solution. With the advent of the New Moon near the end of the month, taking place on Tuesday, October 28th, you may be moving forward with a quicker step and a lighter heart.
