Sun in Aquarius

1.20.2023 – 2.18.2023

This morning, the Sun left the earthy realm of Capricorn and entered the open skies of Aquarius, where it will remain until 2/18/2023.

The transition from Capricorn to Aquarius is about letting go of the old and embracing the new. It’s about considering where “what we have always done”, or how we have always responded, or what traditions we have bound ourselves to, get in the way of who we are becoming.

Capricorn season is about getting in touch with who – and what – is truly worth our time, energy, and resource. Aquarius season then asks us to take that intel, and elevate it. It asks us to rise even higher by setting ourselves, and declaring ourselves, “free”.

So… as the Sun enters Aquarius today, and the Moon spends its last day in Capricorn, take a moment to really let yourself reflect on where it’s time to —

Release an old pattern… Let go of an outdated way of thinking or behaving… Break your own mold… Do life differently…. Make a change… Let a little light in… Give yourself a breath of fresh air… Rise above… Embrace a different perspective… “Do you”…

…despite what has happened before, and despite what others may think.

While the Sun continues in Aquarius for the next four weeks, be open to where you are being asked to rise above your personal “norm” in order to access a higher ideal in your relationships, your behavior, and your life direction.

Today does not ever HAVE to be the same as yesterday 

We’ve got Dark Moon energy today, as we prepare for our Aquarius New Moon, landing tomorrow. This is prime time to pull it in, reflect, rest, and restore.

So…Take a deep breath in… and an even deeper breath out. Now, Where are you being called to elevate? Where is freedom calling you home?

My mantra for Aquarius season? It’s coming from Sia’s “Bird Set Free” —

“And I don’t care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free”
