Aquarius rules the ankles, calves, and circulatory system.
Attuned to revolutionary Uranus, Aquarius is the most “cutting edge” sign. There’s something quirky and eccentric about these far-sighted and humanitarian people. It’s as though Aquarians not only see into the future, but want to bring it about—now! Blue Celestite aids in this goal, assisting assimilation of new ideas. Since the sign is ruled by Uranus, planet of change, and Saturn, planet of consolidation, Aquarius can be pulled in two directions at once. Blue Topaz and Angelite aid in balancing and aligning direction and purpose.
The Moon of Cleansing (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
This period is one of preparation. This is the time to make plans and tap into your creativity to unlock new areas of exploration. The influence is one of innovation.
Aquarius is an air element—intelligent, communicative, sociable, versatile, and unpredictable. They bring intellect and a strong ability to communicate.
Energetic, friendly, and playful, talkative air signs may well be described as “Chatty Cathy.” Air shapes ideas. This is the world of intellectual perception and logical thought. Air is the element of discernment and analysis, of comment and dissection. It’s the mental element that thinks things through, but also has bright flashes of intuition. The air element is inventive and full of new ideas. Air signs need to express themselves verbally, for this is the element of communication.
A Fixed Sign
Aquarians are assertive, independent, progressive, and analytical. Original and inventive, they have very strong opinions about what they like and dislike.
Aquarius in any relationship is a smart, fast, fun, and unconventional, but they’re most compatible with Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Famous Aquarians include Paul Newman (Jan 26), Oprah Winfrey (Jan 29), and Jennifer Aniston (Feb 11).
Do you have any Aquarians in your life?
For those of you in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! And with that I’ll point you to last year’s Freshly Pressed G is for Gratitude – enjoy!
