Dates: 1/19 - 2/17
Welcome to Aquarius season, babes! Aquarius is a sign of innovation and progress. Of rebellion and going against the status quo. Depicted by the water bearer, those with this sign are represented by The Star in tarot. Like the card's imagery, Aquarius pours the water that nourishes the world, even though some of it comes directly back to the source. Many might think they have their head in the clouds, but they’re really on another planet entirely. Often seen as detached and aloof, Aquarians are the true humanitarian’s of the zodiac.
Locate where you have Aquarius in your natal chart to identify where its influence will be highlighted most for you these next few weeks. For example, I have Saturn in Aquarius in the 5th house, so creativity and self-expression will likely be of focus this season.
A few transits are occurring as well:
1/24 - Mars enters Capricorn
1/25 - Mercury Rx enters Capricorn
1/29 - Venus goes direct
2/1 - New Moon in Aquarius
2/3 - Mercury goes direct
2/11 - Jupiter semi-sextile Chiron
2/14 - Pluto trine True Node + Mercury enters Aquarius
2/16 - Full Moon in Leo
2/17 - Jupiter sextile Uranus
Quite a lot is happening in the stars! Most notably, Mercury and Venus both go direct mid-season. I’m sure I won’t be the only one breathing a sigh of relief.
Now, let’s look at what the signs may experience during this time.
Gemini | Libra | Aquarius
Secrets may be revealed to you this season, Air signs. You might have already had your suspicions about the things you learn, and how you deal with the knowledge will be entirely up to you. One thing is for sure, though; the ball is in your court, babe. It will, however, bring you to a crossroads. Knowing the things you know now, do you continue along the same path or do you take a different route?
A lack of maturity is present here, which has resulted in stagnation and blockages up to this point. There’s a good chance you got started on the wrong foot with this person or project, whether it be miscommunication (Mercury is retrograde after all), or something else entirely. It’s possible things even get pretty messy at some point. Once all of the dirty laundry has been aired, though, you might have the opportunity to give it another shot. It’s up to you whether you take it or simply move on. Everyone’s situations are unique and how you choose to move can only be decided by you. And yes, you do have to make a decision, babe.

Empowering Question(s): What is the most courageous thing I’ve ever done? How did it make me feel?
Pisces | Cancer | Scorpio
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come, Water signs. You’ve healed so much and have begun to apply the things you’ve learned over the last few months and years to your current endeavors. Be proud of what you've accomplished.
That being said, there are still some things you haven’t let go of yet. Now is as good a time as any to re-evaluate the people and situations you’re dealing with, babe. You’re near the summit of the mountain you’ve been climbing, but some weight's been dragging you down. The weight is for you to release - no one else. There are going to be difficulties on every path you move along, that much is certain. But how you respond to challenges, real and perceived, is entirely up to you.
It’s like the imagery of a person digging their way through the dirt to find buried treasure, and giving up just before reaching it. Will you give up now before you achieve your goals? Or will you persevere?

Empowering Question(s): What was I intended to do in this life?
Aries | Leo | Sagittarius
You may be going through or recovering from a loss of some sort, Fire signs. What it relates to will be different for everyone. Whatever the loss, it has likely been very hard on you. But, I see you’re coming out on the other side of it soon if you haven’t already.
This loss is the catalyst for regeneration within you. You have a lot of untapped potentials, especially in the creative department. Channel the grief and sorrow you’ve been experiencing into art. Harness those feelings and turn them into a masterpiece.
Heavy feelings can seem all-consuming, but they too will pass. The 10 of wands is the home stretch, asking you to walk just a tiny bit further. You may not realize it, but the separation has led you away from an unstable environment and pushed you closer to stability, where you can shed your old skin and flourish in your new one.

Empowering Question(s): What is my biggest dream? What can I do today to move closer to that dream?
Taurus | Virgo | Capricorn
Something or someone might give you a new pep in your step this season, Earth signs. You’ll have newfound freedom of some sort - a chance to begin anew. And what it does for your confidence!
For some of you, a birth could be taking place, or conception occurs. This does not necessarily mean pregnancy, though it is possible. Valentine's Day is celebrated during this season, after all. There could be the birth of a new creative project, a new friend group, a new connection. There are many ways this could show up in your life.
Whatever it is, this new situation or person offers a fertile ground to grow and thrive in. Which is exactly what you needed to get the ball rolling, babe. You’re all about making your dreams a reality this season, and it could shape up to be an extremely prosperous one for you. The only thing that can hold you up is yourself - and resistance to letting go of old ways of being.
