Aquarius season. The season of dying your hair purple and donating
all of your money to Greenpeace. It’s a season of making everyone
you know niche underground jazz playlists then writing a futuristic
electronica play only to destroy it a week later because it was too
'obvious'. Yes you've got it... it’s time to unleash your QUIRKS!!!
The sign of Aquarius is fixed air, and symbolizes the
universal ‘we’ over the selfish ‘me.’ Aquarian energy
is progressive, futuristic, equalizing and inventive.
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, which is famously
symbolized by electricity, evolution, shocking change and
dismantling the status quo in favor of creating something new.
Wherever you have Aquarius or Uranus in your birth chart, is
where you’ve got real potential to shake society up,
smash through oppressive old systems, and birth the new.
Aquarius energy doesn’t give a fuck about a car, a mortgage,
a ‘proper’ job. Aquarius would rather ride a spaceship into
the future or better yet, invent the space ship right now-
in a co-working cafe drinking a cows milk latte
(because Oat Milk is obvious again!)
Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius) has been sitting in Taurus
for the last few years, indicating a major shift in our habits
and routines. The sign of taurus rules comfort zones,
and slowly builds from a space of safety. As a planet,
Uranus doesn’t care for slow burning safety, it will choose
quick and dirty evolution every time. They don’t call it a
Uranus Slap for nothing.
The archetype of Aquarius is used to standing out, when
you’re the first one to do something; people are gonna notice.
This is a fantastic month to confront any fears around initiation,
invention, launching a progressive idea into the world, or standing
out against the grain.
A shadow side of Aquarius is the archetype of the ‘loner’
the individual who sees the world differently than
the crowds around it, and as a result feels isolated.
Patterns around feeling left out, not cool enough/ or special
enough to join the ‘crowd’ can surface now. Aquarius season is
an opportunity to deeply heal friendship patterns and align
with people who celebrate your enoughness.
Shake up anywhere that feels judgemental, hieracherchal or superficial.
Lilith, the asteroid of sexuality, individuality and shame
has just moved into Leo. Lilith has a gestation period of 9 months,
and symbolizes the cyclical, inner rebirth we continuously
undertake throughout life. Lilith in Leo as a transit takes up
space, is flamboyant, performative, sexual and playful.
It’s important to check in with yourself this month,
are you trying to prove yourself as worthy, to receive acceptance?
Or, can you feel that you just are.
This is a ripe time for embracing
your uniqueness and quirks. What parts of your nature do
you normally hide as you don’t know how others will react?
Do you keep your crystals away from your corporate friends?
Or are you miss independent in public but secretly wishing
people could hold you in your tenderness?
This is a month of accessing your range of personas and expressing
them! They all belong here, not just the basic ass socially acceptable
YES! you in tie dye panties singing Shania Twain wants to get posted
on IG! I’m sorry but it SO just does.
This month, gather with your people, melt into loving community,
togetherness & creativity. Remember, every single community on
earth started with 1 person who had an idea. What’s yours?
