Checking In With…Aquarians

Filed in AQUARIUS

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?

Yes….all of the above and some, but you know what, just bring it on and see what unfurls from the Astro-planetary dynamics……. But always love it when I see asteroid Lilith is in my ‘hood ..

I just told my aquarius rising 5 planet gemini mother that I just didn’t have a lot to say to her. It seems to be the only way to return the sentiment that is her emotional illiteracy and complete inability to understand my position about an assault by a family friend that took place when I was a girl. I can feel the walls going up around me in shutting her out but I just literally cannot drag myself to the threshold of her uranian incomprehension and spell it out in ball-and-stick letters and words of one syllable or less… Read more »

So, Jupiter into Saggo doesn’t seem to be, um, upping my tribe vibe anytime soon. I’m getting frozen out by the youngsters in my new program and kinda can’t be bothered to do anything about it. It triggers gradeschool playground feelings, but obviously one just sits with those. Venus Retro still applies until Keith Richards’ Birthday so also not bothering with “romance” vibe or these dudes that seem to creep back during these retros. Seems like the Mars Retro hold-ups have *maybe* loosened up, but now Merc retro comes in. Bought a plane ticket to London *at the airport* (long… Read more »

Virgo Sun. Leo Moon. Aqua rising, Uranus in Sag 10th House with aspects to nearly every other planet in my chart: conjunct Saturn, square sun, Mars, venus, sextile mercury, trine Jupiter, opposite chiron… The MOMENT Uranus crossed Into Taurus I knew it was all about sound (power, resonance, healing, etc.) for me… epiphany in June lead me to apply to go back to school (8 years since I left, end of 2010 just before Uranus went into Aries) for audio technology which sent me on a personal history unearthing and reframing of my capabilities, worthiness, and value… Discovering everything I’ve… Read more »

I keep having these momentary flash backs to an astro you wrote sometime earlier in the year that said October/Nov was going to be an epic time in terms of lucre, productivity, coming to fruition etc.. This has certainly been the case for me, although it isn’t what I thought it was going to be. Something else entirely, and the concept of lucre also isn’t in traditional dollars and cents, perhaps something even more valuable? Depending on your personal value system. Things were going exceedingly fine, being able to manage competing priorities and clients expectations, then suddenly out of no-where,… Read more »

I’ll miss Mars! (Aqua sun + moon-merc) This period has been wonderful for consolidating energy and ambition around creative project(s) — but happy to think I’ve laid a good foundation for the year to come.

Although yes there have been little spells of over-revving, so hopefully I’ll be able to take what’s been good about this period in terms of focus and vision and will chill a bit on the occasional rash of restlessness in the calmer waters to come.

Aquari sun and mercury. With Mars I basically told all the friends that weren’t working for me anymore (like for years) buh-bye or just stopped engaging. Maybe a little too aggressive and bluntly for their taste. But now that I have barely any friends left-feeling rather refreshed, energized, loving, and open to the new. Glad that period is over!

Yep. Aqua rising, mars, moon, and nn all in 12th house: feel ridiculously tired. All I want to do is sleep and craving complete solitude. Feeling also like I’ve not accomplished much in recent months, certainly tried to, but been involved in an uphill battle at work. now questioning my whole career over it. It’s like I’ve lost my compass.

I went through a massive reboot since May – its entirely too much to list out here but absolutely not an exaggeration to say that my entire life has changed since May, deep fundamental stuff up to surface appearance stuff. I spent the first 2/3’s of the transit in a crippling depression, dealing with ultra-depressing things from the past and working myself ragged trying to do too much. Then about a month ago I hit the accelerator and started addressing every single major thing that had been making me miserable. I didn’t really think about it after that, it was… Read more »

Definitely been going through tough shifts, realizations, and all the fight-back from old programming trying to drag me back into comfort zone. Most profound realization (also one hardest to shift personal response to so far) is that no one’s choices are my fault. They are choosing based on their own personal state, I am not making them react or withdraw or snap or roar, whatever. I am only responsible for my own responses and choices, no need for guilty feeling or self-shaming. Most fun (also tough with the programming lashing back) has been getting into psycho-cybernetics! I love doing daily… Read more »

I feel like I’m moving on my sheer will power, but surprisingly I feel great and inspired. It took me 7 years to shed the mental burden of my divorce but by maintaining focus on my business I’ve managed to crawl to the end of the tunnel and I finally see the light. Last several months have been monumentally tiring but I discovered that I’m stronger than I knew and I can do anything I want to. As long as I get enough sleep and take an occasional trip out of town and once in a while go out for… Read more »

As a lunar Aquarius (with cancer rising, to boost my lunar focus) I too am ready for a rocket ship, maybe to Neptune just for a lark. As a middle aged hippie, I am appreciating how many things have progressed well in the world, yet also, how many lunatics have been seething under the surface, ready and waiting to unravel all the social changes of the second half of the twentieth century. For what? …So did the Mayan calendar end in 2012 because they knew humanity would be trying to start all over again from the beginning?

It ended at 2012 because the ink ran out (fellow Cancer Sun / Aqua Moon)
Do you like Aqua Moons as in popular culture types?

The ink ran out and the shops were closed. Classic pre-computer era problem.
🙂 Not sure if I know of any aqua moon pop culture types specifically. But of my friends, the aqua Moon, or air sign moons are fun and kooky to be with.

Yes. Just yes. Thank you Mystic, I feel validated. Aqua sun, Asc, Mars, Mercury. I just don’t even know where to begin depicting how all those concepts have infiltrated my being since May 18th. It’s like being a TV with the channels getting flicked through. One minute you’re a dramatic soap opera with psychological grooming ex boyfriends then BAM! you’re a medical thriller with chronic contagious disease misdiagnosis BAM! the TV is turned off ands your life feels an empty black hole like an Anish Kapoor artwork. That’s about 30% anyway. Stop please Mars, I wanna go home.

Tired. Fed up with a system that keep reinstating ruling cliques instead of creating equality and respect. Today was peak fortress of solitude attitude. I give up.
I’m taking my rattling box of emotional baggage, which was gaffer taped shut 7 years ago only to travel with me from year to year gathering dust and frustration and taking up unnecessary space, and I’m totally checking out for the next few days to try and empty it piece by piece.

Exhausted, and exhausted. My Aquariun sun in 6th, mercury at 0 degrees acquarius combined with my chiron return (O degrees Aries opposite my natal uranus) and I am exhausted. This year I have established a new manufacturing business, returned to University and oh still running existing health businesses, and expanding an international education business with a small family. 50 flights later, and a gruelling publishing workload and I want to sleep and sleep. This week I am in bed around 7pm each night. Mars let me be

Aqua rising: fortress of solitude and getting nowhere. My life is actually pretty awesome (despite the global cluster f**k of our times), but I’m feeling stuck and irritable to the point of lashing out on a second-by-second basis. Never wanted to check out of human life so badly before.

My son is Aquarius (age 10), back in May he decided he doesn’t want to be an actor/director anymore… scientific astro-cartography instead please! This week he has dreamt about being on a Mars mission, trying to shift its orbit… I think he’s well tuned in to planetary shifts

oh I hear you! My daughter (12) Aqua sun and Aqua rising (my present to myself! I’m an Aqua sun) after amassing a substantial fan base (70+K!!!!, I got bragging rights, my apologies) with her short comedy vids she suddenly loses interest around May and starts wondering about psychology and motives and people’s behavior patterns….. hmmm….

Frikkin hey fortress of solitude. Exhausted constNtly, getting nowhere no matter how hard I try, nothing shifting. I feel like I’m on a treadmill set on Everest but lacking the views…. or the serenity… or any kind of satisfaction. I’m actually missing the days when I was a pot head. Yep. I’m fringing on nihilism. Fringing…. just. Last night I thought ‘hey, Satre really wasn’t that far off the mark’. A wise Gem friend replied that he was pretty smart and had some good ideas but really he was a bit of a dick. Perhaps. Perhaps not. Let’s see when… Read more »

“….on a treadmill set on Everest but lacking the views….” Absolutely!!! Same.

My best friend and I, both Aqua Moons, independently rediscovered stoicism (hail Marcus Aurelius) and bonded over how nothing seems magical and meaningful anymore but oh well, a man’s got to persevere.
Then there was a very Japanese quote in an anime I watched the other day which also resonated: “knowing that it’s pointless and still carrying on is what being a [real man/human] is”, said a kawaii hard-working granny to her grandson who kept complaining about the pointlessness of weeding out the garden.

“Or just ready to snap and go live in a secret fortress of solitude someplace.” — Pretty much where I’m at. Feeling run ragged, exhausted, frazzled, but really have been just running in place this entire year. Have made some attempts to find work in other cities and trying to mastermind a plan to move away from this Qi-vamp-of-a-city I live in. Nothing has come through yet, and I’m still here, feeling stuck and irritable… I’m Aqua Sun (8th) and Merc (9th). My guy is Aqua Moon and Uranus. We want to move somewhere new together but nothing forthcoming yet…… Read more »

Aqua rules my 8th but Mars has been mostly in my 7th along with life lesson powers (Pluto, Lilith & now Sat on my Dsc). Where my natal Moon lives. I’ve been getting much instruction re relationships. My 1-2 & 7-8 houses traverse 79°. Big lessons. Now Mars is on my Chiron and applying opp my Mars cj Pluto. And will only leave the 8th just before he exits Pisces. A lot of my takeaway, of Mars in Aqua, is learning to be a boundary rider. Maybe like Charles Rasp I’ll find my treasure riding those boundaries keeping them in… Read more »

At first I thought you were insulting me with Cyclops eye. Triggered a memory at a workplace when someone said I had a Cyclops eye. I thought they were saying I had a mono brow. God I was sensitive, still am really.

Thanks Plum, me a tad sensitive today And feeling weird. Feeling like I have Aspergers, I had a stressful day. I think I officially lost the plot today. Simple things were just so difficult to manage. But I kept persisting (just made things worse). Thankfully I finally walked away. My logic is trying to override my emotions, but my emotions are saying fuq that. Oh boy I have just recognised a very familiar pattern.

So it was a huge healing and shift I am still recovering from. It started about a week or so ago and my foster cats were the catalyst. No wonder I called them the Dynamic duo. Or as I prefer. The Triple Goddess. I had a beautiful moment with them, the bigger sister going on heat was washing the baby sister who was smiling. So cute. Then I realised the bub was the maiden, the cat on heat the mother and I was the crone. The power of three. Go Bast Goddess and thank you.

Since May-ish, some unexplained (until now) ethereal vibe spurned me to renovate a DIY paradigm. So extremely alt to the background self-talk diatribe playing in my personal crystal palace elevator that i’m surprising myself more than any oddly ever-accepting acquaintance. Does living inside an industrial unit with six-inch solid concrete walls and a thirty-foot high ceiling lined with tin foil constitute a fortress of solitude? Behind closed roller doors I plot, scheme and design a purpose-built Aquarian-esque live-a-board vessel, with futuristic solar-electric-powered capacities, self-contained and simple.
