Sun in Aquarius happens from January 21st to February 19th and really brings to light the eccentricity of each sign. Aquarius is a chaotic time of the year. A time of individuality, renewal, and community. A time to feel the ending of one season and the subtle hints of rebirth happening. Not quite spring, not still winter. We feel alive and ready to come out of hibernation and socialize. Each sign feels these emotions differently and reacts appropriately. How does your sign handle these changes? Let's dig into it.
Each Sign Adapts Uniquely to Sun in Aquarius
Knowing how to handle the ebb and flow of the Universe and the planetary alignments is essential to living a balanced life. While each of us handles life in our own way, each sign shares common ground when navigating their life's path. Having the Sun in Aquarius may be smooth sailing or a major fork in the road for you. How you handle either depends entirely on your Sun sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You become magnified during this time, Aries. Your wit and love of a good debate shine. Though this will lead to many good conversations, be careful not to go overboard. There is a fine line between debating and fighting, and you love to play with that line. Make sure to let your finer qualities like honesty and bravery stand out while keeping your aggression and need to be right in check.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You feel a little overwhelmed right now, Taurus. Your convention and strong will may feel out of place in this time of flow and freedom. Take a minute to organize your space to keep a level head. Do not make big decisions as they may be made out of fear. This is a time to stick to what you know and stay focused. Aquarian energy does help you expand outside your comfort zone, and that could be a good thing.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The Sun in Aquarius brings out your social side, Gemini. There is no shortage of conversations to have and a world to analyze. You really shine during this time. Embrace this and be as lively as you desire! Make sure, though, that the truth doesn't get lost in all your stories. You do have a tendency to embellish, and this will not end well with those new friends, so keep it real and don't overshoot the moon.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This time may prove emotional for you, Cancer. Your sensitivity and intuition will be heightened, and this can lead to hurt feelings. The airy nature of the Aquarius energy doesn't sit well with you. Take some time for self-care and being around those that truly know you. This is not the best time to be overly social. People will be readily flowing words every way, and you will be able to see through each exaggeration, leading you to correct them and look like the bad guy.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Take this time to strut your stuff, Leo. Aquarius opens the door to socializing and partying. If there was a time to let your radiance shine, it is now. People want to listen, and you love to talk. Tell your story, connect with new crowds, live it up! This overflow of confidence (not that you ever lack it) may be best focused on humanitarian efforts. You are a take-charge human, and this time will definitely shine a light on the changes you wish to see in society. Aquarian energy really opens doors for you.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Sun in Aquarius can be the best or the worst for you, Virgo. On the one hand, this energy shines on humanitarian efforts and, therefore, gives you a perfect place to help those around you like you love doing. Your love for equality and activism thrive here. On the other hand, your steadiness and caution are thrown about in this airy storm. Aquarius wants life to flow like a dancing hippy, and you cannot get behind that. Where is the structure? Use this time to focus on those volunteer projects and breathe through the lack of control. It won't last forever.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Oh, Libra! You playful adventurer! With Sun in Aquarius, you will find no shortage of laughter and fun. Fill your calendar with events and friends. You will not be disappointed. As a fellow air sign, the amount of free flow will not go unnoticed. Be sure not to let the people-pleaser in you feel bad about letting loose. For balance and peace of mind, maybe try taking on charity activities. Your love of justice and altruism has so many options to shine. Do it all!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You will have to look at a brighter side right now, Scorpio. Your usual dark humor and outlook will not do well here. Sun in Aquarius is a time of playfulness and fun. This may rub you the wrong way if you feel others are being too flippant. Don't take things personally. Know that just because they are not acting the way you think they should, it doesn't mean they are doing something wrong. Stick with close family and friends right now. They will not take your stoicism as an insult. Let loose a bit and go have some light-hearted fun, even if it is hard.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You will recognize this vagabond energy, Sagittarius. It will take the urge to wander to a level you may not be able to deny. This is no time to be cautious. Throw it to the wind and go! The Sun is literally telling you to! If you cannot get physically away, plan a staycation and do something completely new. It will satiate that need for now.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
This energy will prove disenchanting to you, Capricorn. Your steady, grounded nature dislikes the idea of an unknown future. You may feel the need to hold tighter to those goals and desires, but letting go a bit wouldn't be so bad, would it? You do not always need to let practicality win. Be open to new things. You may be surprised and find a new love.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Of course, you will be right at home in your own energy, Aquarius. This is the time you thrive in. All the optimism and enthusiasm will bring out all the best aspects of you. Take this time to not only celebrate yourself but all that this energy, YOUR energy, creates. Volunteer, wander, make new "best friends," and take chances. All those new experiences will only enhance the exceptional human you are.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Don't let your emotions get the best of you, Pisces. This energy gives off a spacey and unfocused vibe that does not bode well with you. You may feel put aside by others as they venture. Do not let this overwhelm you. You are loved. Take a couple of breaths and see that others are just finding themselves in different ways. If you feel the urge to venture yourself, take a wing person with you to help reign in your sensitivity.
Whether the Sun in Aquarius is a help or a hindrance, its energy is precisely what the world needs when it comes around. It starts the transition from one season to the next. The ebb and flow of the water bearer sign want us to see the world through a cleansing lens. It breathes new life into the Universe and into each one of us, whether we want it or not.
