Aquarius season is officially upon us! If you are an Aquarius sun, moon, or rising- this is your season so get excited about it!
The zodiac sign of Aquarius is, by nature, a very complex sign. To begin with, it is a fixed air sign represented by the symbol of the water bearer. Fixed signs (the other fixed signs being Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio) serve the purpose of stabilizing and maintaining. However, the element of air is one that is ever-moving. So this exemplifies the Aquarian themes of breaking limitations and boundaries.
Without question, Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac! This sign is all about resisting authority, breaking traditions, liberation, and being the voice of those who society considers “different”. If everyone else is going right, Aquarius will most definitely go left! Aquarius is also connected to humanitarianism, global issues, and technology. They are the innovators and freedom fighters of our world.
The symbolism of the water bearer is that it is the bringer of life. Aquarius is the sign in between the earth sign of Capricorn, which represents the earthly realm of reality, and the water sign of Pisces, which represents the spiritual realm. So Aquarius, and the 11th house of the natal chart which it rules, is responsible for adding purpose and meaning to our lives. This is why the 11th house represents our society and friend groups but also represents our purpose within that society.
The modern planetary ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, a planet characterized by its erratic orbit. Uranus is considered to be the higher octave of Mercury, meaning the evolved and higher functioning version of it. I consider this in the sense that Uranus is the version of Mercury with the added emotional factor. So whereas Mercury is our rational mind and skills, Uranus takes that to the next level- turning an idea into a passion and turning a skill into a purpose.
