During this shortest month of the year several planets will be in the sign of Aquarius, including the Sun and Saturn who will be conjunct for a couple of days in the middle of the month. Even as the Sun shifts into the sign of Pisces on the 18th, Saturn, Vulcan and Mercury will continue in Aquarius through the 28th.
Many think that Aquarius is a water sign since the Water Bearer is its archetype. But in fact, Aquarius is an air sign and as such represents the mental realms, thought processes and high ideals, the expansion of thought. It rules breezes and light zephyrs, the uplifting type of air which holds balloons aloft and lightens the mood. It also rules waves of things, whether water, air, or sonar.
The Water Bearer is pouring forth not water, but knowledge for spiritually thirsty people. This Age of Aquarius is indeed a time of expansion of the human mind and the human need for a spiritual identity higher than most have so far attained or even known possible. This is the Age when cooperation within groups, friendships and all of humanity is expected to reach a higher level, to expand into the recognition that indeed we are all a part of the human species, and we are all heading in the same direction. Aquarius rules the steps we take to attain our greatest hopes and wishes including the climb up Jacob’s ladder.
When we shift into esoteric astrology, Jupiter, with its hearty benevolence and jolly good will, becomes the ruling planet of Aquarius. While Jupiter is currently in the sign of Aries, its connection to Aquarius brings it front and center as well, while Aries is the sign of beginning something new. Since Aquarius rules friendships, this might be a time when new friends show up or old friends are raised to a higher level within your esteem. Beginning something new with a higher awareness is perfect and appropriate.
