The Sun enters the sign of Aquarius on January 20th at 1:50 a.m., Mountain Time. Aquarius is an air sign and is associated with the wildest planet of them all, Uranus. I call Uranus the rebel of the Zodiac. Or maybe the mad genius who invents the future. Typical occupations for the independent Aquarius include consultant, electrician, sociologist, mechanic, entrepreneur or IT person. Their job is to bring the future into everyday life.
This will be a relatively calm month astrologically. No Retrogrades or Eclipses. The square from Saturn to Uranus is over, so we can finally exhale. Astrology always changes as the planets revolve around the Sun. It doesn’t usually stay intense for very long. The next big astrological event will be about Pluto. Right around the Spring Equinox, Pluto will leave Capricorn and will enter a new sign of Aquarius. I wrote an entire article about Pluto entering Aquarius for this newsletter. It’s the biggest change that humanity will see for a long time and will usher in the Age of Aquarius!
The one planetary alignment happening this month is Venus joining Saturn in Aquarius the last week in January. Saturn with Venus is often deep realizations about friends or relationships. Some will end or shift to another level. Embrace this as you will see the true colors of your loved ones. Harsh, but always a good thing. This is almost like a retrograde and is a suitable time to rethink your personal life and make changes.
Then Mercury enters Aquarius and will remain there from February 11 until March 2nd. Mercury in the bold sign of Aquarius will have no trouble communicating your new style. It looks like the ending of the winter season will clean things out for us all.
Regarding the visible planets, they have all shifted to the evening sky. Of course, the planets are easier to see in the evening than having to wake up to see them in the predawn sky. We can now see Venus in the western sky above the sunset. You can also see Mars, Jupiter and Saturn higher in the evening sky. Enjoy the planets! I watch them every single night.
See you next in Pisces
