Aquarius Horoscope (January 20 - February 18)
Your ruling planets are Uranus and Saturn.
New information is coming your way, Aquarius, and whether you are ready for it or not, it is causing quit a stir in your psyche. Communicating your deepest truth to others around you might spur you on to new activity even though you might also be tempted to stay stuck in the mud of outmoded belief systems. With Mercury retrograde in your sector of communications you are also more inner than outer; reflective as opposed to ebullient. Whatever you are not yet ready to give up is in essence holding you back from where you need to be, but the natural caution that you are exhibiting also has its advantages. Sometimes it is better just to watch carefully, and to wait for the opportunity to reveal itself in no uncertain terms.
As the month begins, you are enjoying the power of your words. The energy is building in your communication sector. This could be expressed in writing now, or in spoken interaction with your peers. You are likely feeling that this is an exciting time to be alive, and to be able to share with others. Equally, the information that you receive has an element that is truly and fundamentally revolutionary. Since Mercury is also retrograding through this same sector of your Solar chart, there is a reflective and largely internal aspect to your thoughts and verbal expression now, making this entire month an excellent time for journaling and inner exploration of any kind. The New Moon of Sunday, April 3rd, brings tons of energy to this process and also to the exploration of your evolving world view, changing with these changing and challenging times. You are developing new opinions on how the world manifests itself around you and simultaneously reflecting on the past, and what beliefs you have that you cannot or will not let go of in the face of new information. Are you preserving a vital heritage or simply staying stuck and refusing to move on? Only time will tell. With the First Quarter Moon of Monday, April11th, you could encounter tension and snags as well as faith in your process. There is fuzziness and a soft and compassionate idealism that applies to your thought process now; paradox rules. This is also a time when the bumps in the road of your progress become more apparent and when you might be tempted to react more harshly than is necessary to perceived criticism. You are making a stand for what you believe, or what you think that you believe, over these few days leading up to the following weekend. Then, on the weekend of the 16th and 17th, culminating in the Full Moon of Sunday evening, you are entering into a rather calmer and more peaceful time period. You are embracing the delicate balance between self and other, and seeking to find the place where harmony prevails between outer and inner experience. Progress is slowed and accomplishment elusive but this also has the effect of focusing your attention more carefully on what you are attempting. At the time of the Last Quarter Moon in your sign, taking place on Easter Sunday, April 24th, when Mercury also has changed to direct motion, creating a subtle shift in your communicative energy, you are likely to be spending much of your thinking in mulling over the previous three weeks, trying to sort out the nuggets of useful and true information. Nothing is either good or bad, says the bard, but thinking makes it so, and this being true you now have the opportunity to evaluate your prior experience in order to bring the best of it forward into your next phase. It might be that some of it will provide clues to the places where you are stuck or exhibiting outmoded patters of reactivity that no longer serve you, and that will lose their power over you once you have the courage to face them and move on.
