Sun in Aquarius ~ Jan. 19 to Feb. 18, 2010

Following Venus' lead, the Sun enters Aquarius on January 19 at 11:28 p.m. EST and will stay through February 18. It's been a busy few days with Jupiter changing signs on the 17th, followed by Venus entering Aquarius yesterday and tonight, the Sun moves into Aquarius, too!

The Sun represents our vitality, potential, ego and conscious will. In Capricorn, the Sun is realistic, determined, purposeful and an achiever. In Aquarius, the Sun is idealistic, experimental, forward-thinking and a humanitarian. At best, the Sun in Aquarius is friendly, socially aware, civic-minded, advocates change for the greater good and an intellectual. At worst, a risk-taker at any cost, abrupt and unpredictable and unable to develop a sound plan to successfully carry out objectives.

While the Sun is in Aquarius, we are reminded that our situations are changeable. We do not need to keep operating on auto-pilot. We do not need to stay in a situation that no longer challenges us or gives us happiness. We are reminded that there is life outside what's familiar or comfortable, that our life is indeed well within our control. It's okay to rock the boat, if the rocking produces an improved situation or, at the very least, the awareness for the need of an improvement to the existing situation.

While in Aquarius, the Sun will make alignments with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect EST (NYC) time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • January 24 ~ Sun trine Saturn-rx. Finding work fulfilling. Commitments don't seem to be a burden. Hard work rewarded. Alternate solutions to issues. Working around restrictions. Limitations lifting.
  • January 29 ~ Sun oppose Mars-rx. Working at cross-purposes. Actions lacking direction or misdirected. Actions/decision driven by anger or frustration. Seek balance. Watch aggression. Focus.
  • January 30 ~ Full Moon in Leo at 1:18 a.m. EST
  • February 13 ~ New Moon in Aquarius at 9:51 p.m. EST
  • February 14 ~ Sun conjunct Chiron and Neptune. Looking within. Time to heal. Release. Let go. Breaking through walls of deeply rooted wounds. Opportunity to help others. Tap into spirituality/intuition. Insight. Find the divine within the self. Compassion. Kindness.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
