Aquarius, Aquarius!

Though the Sun has already completed its journey through Aquarius for this year and moved on to Pisces there is still a lot of action in the sign of the genius, the inventor, the rebel and the humanitarian. Aquarius is the sign in charge of technology, the Internet, science, unique individuality and equal relationship–like friendship and the kind of relating we do when we collaborate on a project with others.

Today Venus, Mercury, Chiron (The Wounded Healer), Neptune and the North Node of the Moon (the dharma or destiny point) are all lined up in Aquarius, signaling a time for the seeding of revolutionary and evolutionary new developments. If you’ve been contemplating doing something that is a little to the left of normal, a little unexpected, a little bit quirky, the time for it has arrived.

With Mercury finally through its retrograde period in Aquarius and headed in a forward direction arm in arm with Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, self-esteem, money and that which we appreciate and hold dear, we are more prone to approach things from the perspective of what matters to us rather than what we have come to think of as logical or reasonable. Venus rules the senses and when she makes contact with Mercury, encourages us to think in terms of what makes sense for each of us rather than to operate from a prescribed perspective that paints with a broad brush declaring this right and this wrong, this good and this bad for one and all.

With all this Aquarian energy in the cosmic pool of potential, it makes sense to let our imaginations run wild and see where they take us. Under Aquarius the “crazy idea” is not so crazy. Visionary, inventive, progressive ideas that break with convention are more likely to surface and be supported now.

Though Venus and Mercury will move through Aquarius in the next couple of weeks, before they go they will touch and activate Chiron to awaken new possibilities in healing and insights about our wounding, Neptune to spark and help actualize the vivid spiritual imagination and then on to the North Node where we can access the possibilities and potentials humanity is now becoming aware of and ready to make real in our experience of life on earth.

This reminds me of the Seal song:

And through a fractal on that breaking wall
I see you my friend and touch your face again
Miracles will happen as we trip
But we’re never gonna survive unless
We get a little crazy

Aquarian energy can feel a little crazy. Many of us who were born with Aquarian energy have felt compelled to push the boundaries of reality and question authority. We know what it feels like to be misunderstood, judged and found lacking. Some of us secretly wonder why we can’t be satisfied with what others consider normal, thinking that would be so much easier. It’s not, though. Those born with Aquarian energy are designed to break the old molds and usher in a new day and a new way.

In my birth chart Chiron was rising in Aquarius. It took me a long time to understand that I wasn’t here to fit in. I am here to offer a new perspective and fresh ideas about the nature of reality; even to question what people have accepted as reality. Humans are amazing beings with tremendous potential about which we are just beginning to get an inkling. In my work as an intuitive astrologer I encourage my clients and readers to trust their own nature and the instructions of their heart above anything else. There is no time but the present and no one to be but you, in all your unique glory.

Crazy isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And if crazy is what it takes to break out of the old mold of who we thought we had to be, I say please, let’s all go a little crazy. And enjoy the ride.
