In astrology, Aquarius is the house that brings people together. Friends, business colleagues, charities, clubs, teams—-they all fall under Aquarius’s watchful eye. Humans are social creatures, and we find strength and solace in numbers. Group activities help us grow as we are exposed to other people’s points of view.
Aquarius also deals with something that’s quite personal: our fondest hopes and dreams as individuals. Whether we fulfill our dreams on our own or with the company of others is a choice that we get to make.
History, movies and books are full of stories about the “Lone Ranger” type who follows their own path. You know, the solitary Clint Eastwood type or the crazy, misunderstood genius/artist/inventor/mystic. Think Joan of Arc, Nikola Tesla or Van Gogh.
Then are the buddy adventures like Holmes and Watson, Thelma and Louise, or Frodo and Sam. Sometimes you’ll have a Lone Ranger type who develops a following, people who will follow them to the ends of the Earth—Forrest Gump (remember the running scene after he gets back from Viet Nam?) or Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit.
A new moon occurs in Aquarius on February 11th, a wonderful lunation for reconnecting with people and making new acquaintances. Obviously Covid still has many of us sequestered, but the energy of a new moon carries out for six months.
So use the energy of this lunation to ponder your deepest held dreams and wishes, and who you want to take on your journey as 2021 progresses.
One of the biggest astrological scoops of the year–heck, the decade–is that Saturn is now in Aquarius for the first time in 26 years. it will be here until late 2022, and as this is the planet of long-term happiness, the people you meet this year and next could be your friends for life.
Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, is now in Aquarius for the first time in 13 years. All of this bodes well for forging strong bonds with the right kind of people. The kind who respect your ideas and opinions, the ones who give you space to be yourself.
Friends, business acquaintances and club members could be unusually lucky for you this year, so don’t be afraid to ask for favors. Your BFF could end up introducing you to the love of your life, for example, or help you make some big decisions.
There IS some funky energy going on, though, at new moon time. Rascally Mars has been a fly in the ointment all month, and it squares the new moon from Taurus. What this means is that some individuals could be pushy, especially in a team environment.
Maybe they don’t want to play by the rules. They’ll go over budget or off schedule. Perhaps they’ll “forget” what roles they are supposed to play, or what they promised to do.
This energy reappears on February 17th and 19th, but then it starts to dissipate. March promises to be a much calmer month when it comes to dealing with other people. Keep that in mind if someone is really working your nerves!
The overall cosmic outlook is excellent for getting together with others. For now, keep it safe. Find online forums full of people who share your hobbies or interests. Find a charity you’d like to get involved in once we can mingle again. Single people, Aquarius is the house of technology, so online dating sites could produce results.
I just joined a small group of women entrepreneurs from the US and Canada; we have a weekly Zoom call and share our ideas and knowledge and try to help each other out. I look forward to our Monday afternoon meetings because I know I’m around people who get me. And I can’t wait til the day we get to meet in person. The champagne will flow, that’s for sure.
Don’t let ‘Rona cut you off from the world…..or going after your deepest dreams. The Aquarius new moon is the best time in 2021 to get involved in both. Cheers!
