On January 19/20 (depending on your timezone) the Sun shifts into the tropical zodiac of Aquarius. The Sun represents our own inner light, and as it moves into the sign of the water bearer we can tap into a different part of our self-expression.
As the Sun moves through air sign Aquarius, we may find ourselves having new and inspiring thoughts, thinking outside the box, instigating change, and finding new ways to look at things.
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, and this cosmic energy becomes our guiding force as we move through Aquarius Season.
Uranus is the planet of awakening, it can shake things in our lives, bringing sudden and unexpected events that help push us in a bold new direction. Uranus guides us to step away from actions, attitudes, and beliefs that are not aligned with our soul and encourages us to embody our truth.
What actions and beliefs are you taking for the sake of others? What behaviors are you getting caught up in just because society tells us they are normal?
When the Sun moves into Aquarius, it is time to celebrate our own inner spark and our own way of doing things. We are encouraged to question our beliefs and ensure they are aligned with our truth and not the truth of others.
How can we embrace our own way of doing things? How can we celebrate the unique being that we are and bring this unique spark to the world?
Aquarius Season is also a time where we can feel extra supported to build community in our lives. Having a supportive community is so important to the enrichment of our lives, so think about ways you can strengthen your connection with those around you.
Networking and sharing your experiences with others may also lead to new opportunities and allow you to create a deeper connection with others. Sometimes it can be scary to reach out and ask for help or to share our experiences with others. But allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and putting ourselves out there can often lead to amazing synchronicities and connections.
Aquarius Season is also highly supportive for taking these steps, so know you have the energy of the cosmos on your side!
Aquarius Season 2022 is filled with some cosmic goodies including a highly creative Full Moon, the Lunar New Year, and the ultra-balancing meeting of the two cosmic lovers- Venus and Mars.
Both Venus and Mercury will also station direct under the Aquarius Sun, helping to shake off any sticky or heavy energy and allowing us to embrace more of the new energies the year has for us.

January 19/20- Sun enters Aquarius
Depending on your timezone, the Sun shifts into Aquarius on February 18th or 19th.

This allows us to feel our feet firmly planted while we stretch our minds to new dimensions.
January 23- Sun Conjunct Mercury Rx
Mercury is traveling retrograde through the shadows of our subconscious, but on this day it aligns with the Sun, symbolizing its rebirth. If you have been feeling the side effects of Mercury Retrograde including miscommunications, delays, technology mishaps, or contract disputes, you may start to gain more clarity from today onwards. This is also a great day to consciously make a decision to push past some limited thinking that has been holding you back.
January 29- Venus Direct
Venus stations direct after being retrograde since December 19. This is a power day for Venus energy and may shed some light on relationship issues or areas where we have been struggling to assert ourselves.

January 31/ February 1- New Moon in Aquarius + Lunar New Year
The Aquarius New Moon signals the start of the lunar new year. There is some volatile energy stirring under this New Moon due to strong influence from the planet Uranus. Know however, that while Uranus may shake things up, it does so in order to bring about an awakening. Change may be in the air on this New Moon, but this may be change we need in order to shift out of any heaviness or sticky energy we may find ourselves in. With Mercury going direct in a few days, we may find once the dust settles that new inspiration and opportunities are on offer to us. For some timezones around the world, this New Moon falls on January 31st, giving us two New Moons in the month. This second New Moon is known as a Black Moon.
February 1- Chinese Astrology: Year of the Water Tiger
In Chinese astrology, the lunar new year represents the shift into a new zodiac sign. This year, we move into the year of the Water Tiger. The element of water indicates a need to go with the flow and to embrace any changes that may come our way. The element of water also supports following our intuition and making decisions from a place of heart-centered alignment. Rather than approaching life from a frantic state of mind, water energy allows us to sit back and take direction from the ebb and flow of the Universe. The Tiger energies will give us the courage needed to do this and will allow us to come from a place of confidence as we sit back and trust the subtler queues that life presents to us. More to come on this soon!
February 3- Mercury goes direct
Mercury stations direct after being retrograde since January 14. This is a time where we may receive clarity on issues that we have been foggy or uncertain about. If we have been facing delays, technical difficulties, or contract disputes we may start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Mercury will take some time in order to get back to its former strength, so be patient but know we can use this energy to lean into our intuition. More on this here.
