Aquarius is the 11th Sign in the Zodiac. This is why it's the Sign most focused on the survival of humankind. It is the time of year where we're likely going to rely on our friends and neighbors to have the stockpile we all need to survive the harsh middle of winter Notice how whiteness has made us focus on the high functioning, systematic mind of Aquarius over its quirky, weirdness. Yes, it can be unconventional, fanatical & even conspiratorial but that is BECAUSE it's future-focused & innovative not because it's a rebel without a cause. As you study Aquarius make sure you don't allow the stream of weird keywords to distract you from its creative & inventive nature. We must allow the Aquarius part of us (and others) to be able to express both sides of its nature to be whole. The scientist who never gets peer-reviewed hasn't done their ShadowWeRK. An inventor who is open to community input & willing to fail before succeeding is a balanced Aquarius.

Aquarius brings in the opportunities to innovate the systems that Capricorn put in place. Aquarius energy invites us to problem-solve for what comes up when we just don’t have enough Sun or heat around us. It reminds us that we can’t get too attached to just our own peeps but that everyone in the entire collective matters. Aquarius brings hope & a renewed interest in what makes us different from animals; our weirdness AND our abilities to help each other. The sky turns stark white with bright blue breaks in the clouds. All the trees & plants are stark & black, making interesting patterns all around us. This is when we are called to make plans for how we can all making it thru this last gauntlet of Winter. Our food stores & supplies are dwindling but Aquarius loves a chance to use its creative mind to solve these problems.
