Are Aquarians beginning to thaw out? Yes, this zodiac sign is renowned for frosty hauteur and remoteness but the Sun + Mercury in Aquarius are about to be joined by Mars then Venus.
And, of course, Pluto – the underworldly King of banked-up passions and subterranean fire – is also in Aquarius. This is a formula for invigorated intimacy and mighty alliances – don’t buy the apparent inactivity.
Even without the Pluto factor, Aquarians are often dormant for ages before erupting into activity. All this applies to the Moon and Ascendant in Aquarius as well as the Sun, btw.
Many Aqua-people were romantically/sexually dormant throughout Saturn in their sign or even from when the Time God entered Capricorn in December 2017. Ruled by Saturn before the discovery of Uranus, Aquarians remain intermittently responsive to its steely, stern input. Capricorn is also their ‘soul sector’ aka the 12th house in their solar chart.
Add the pandemic protocols plus that interminable square to Uranus over 2021/2022 and you get Fortress Aquarius. The upside? Profound mental, metaphysical and emotional growth. You can get heaps done in isolation and Saturn transits often impose it in one way or another.
Still, Aquarians are warming up this very moment. They’re reconsidering their vows of chastity/non-committment, disdain for bourgeois aesthetic expectations or aversion to romance and emotion. You may even notice a flurry of no-caller-id or unknown number calls. They’re making ready for the Big Thaw.
