The Sun in Aquarius Forecast: Jan. 20 - Feb. 18 2008

By Sharita Star

Our Sun now moves into Aquarius, the last fixed air and masculine energy upon our Zodiac wheel. This organized sign asks us to improve and refresh our lives as we settle further into winter. Symbolized by the Water Bearer, Aquarian natives are the masters of invention that bring renewed life to wherever change is needed.

This tolerant sign has the guidance of the planet Uranus making its' mark upon their intellectual innovations, while being well-adept at dealing with the unexpected. The focus is typically the larger picture rather than intimacy in relationships, as the deeper concern is to wield beneficial transformations for humanity. Like all air signs, this element grants the Aquarian a friendly nature that seeks multitudes of liberal and experimental alliances.

Our Water Bearers are constantly urged to express their innate originality. Consciously aiming to seek the truth, Aquarians are driven by a deep sense of altruism. They instinctively turn obstacles into welcomed challenges, fostering success in the areas of science, technological advancements or anywhere they can apply their eccentric and insightful visions for the future.

Aquarians are rarely unsurpassed in their abilities to investigate, co-ordinate, brainstorm, synthesize, and plan, with the ultimate outcome being reform. At worst they can display personas that are opinionated, remote, agnostic, vast, tactless, unpredictable and obstinate. With the cultivation of warmth, practicality, along with the recognition that personal touch is essential for continued evolution, the Aquarian native finds the balance to attune their soul.

As our Sun transits through Aquarius, we all are offered the space to reflect and ponder the areas that need reform on a personal level. Ideally the coldness of Winter grants us this natural time each year as we await the rebirth of Spring. Thus here is the perfect opportunity to unleash our brilliant game plans not only for our own growth, but ones that shower the world at large with equal blessings.

Get ready for the Universe to intensify this reflective time as Mercury goes Retrograde in Aquarius upon January 28th. (look for our Blog Alert 1/28 for more details!) This month also sees Pluto starting a brief visit to its' new long-term stay in Capricorn up until April 2nd, where it will Retrograde at 01 degrees Capricorn, and reenter Sagittarius upon June 15th. Mars moves out of its' Retrograde period that began November 15th, granting drives within the Gemini and Cancer ruled houses in the individual birth chart, to return to forward motion again in those specific areas of the life.

As always upon an Aquarian New Moon, we ring in the Chinese New Year. 2008 marks The Year of the Rat, Earth year. In the legend of how the Chinese Zodiac Wheel came to be, the Rat was the first animal to come to Buddha. Interestingly enough, this Universal New Year of 2008 numerically reduces to a singular One vibration- and coupled with the Chinese Wheel starting anew- initiations and new beginnings are at an all time high to flourish. This 2008-09 Earth Rat Year marks a collective time of pragmatism, forethought and self-will. Material prosperity this year is highly protected when it is acquired through the means of integrity and hard work.

May your spirit excel in its' renewal, originality and benefit from the changes that are to come to both your inner and outer worlds.
