Aquarians, how are you? Mars is nearing the end of a hilariously extended stay in your sign. Aside from a couple of weeks when the Red Planet obligingly backed into Capricorn, it has been in Aquarius for the most time since the Early Seventies.
You’d think patchouli, paisley prints and glitter might get a look in, but no, you refined your consciousness. But then your sharper instincts ramped up the irritation with behind-the-Zeitgeist scenarios, Qi Vamps, and dystopian politics.
Weirder still, the intensity of the Martian influence since May has coincided with the shift of Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius) into a new sign for the first time in seven years. So that accentuated something else about Aquarians. Ruled by both Saturn and Uranus, you can fluctuate between the two modalities; Saturn is more the stoic and pragmatic ‘scientist’ archetype while Uranus conjures up outer-planetary Magician-Trickster energy.
From May until just the other day, Saturn and Uranus both in Earth signs felt like a firmer psychic foundation. Now, with Uranus backtracking in Aries and Mars getting antsy, you could be doubting yourself and the new paradigm. Or just ready to snap and go live in a secret fortress of solitude someplace.
But soon Mars moves on to
hound motivate Pisceans. And the purpose of your ruler Uranus back in the end degrees of Aries until March is to complete old business from the era now finishing. Clear your consciousness of out-dated vibe to make ready for the new Uranian deal. The big ideas and high concepts of May till early November were real.
More in your Horoscopes, of course.
So, Aquarius, thoughts?
