Sun into Aquarius
Thursday January 20, 2011
It's time for the Waterbearer, and drawing cosmic inspiration down to earth. The Sun moves into the Aquarian piece of sky starting today! When the Sun is in Aquarius, we are the divine receivers -- picking up super fine and unusual frequencies.
Aquarius is an air sign, with its head in the clouds, tuned in to futuristic or out of this world ideas. What's picked up can seem too idealistic, for life here on earth, and many Aquarians are visionaries.
It's a time to find ways to draw down the faster Uranian frequencies, and integrate them with the dense reality of the physical. Bridging that gap can seem impossible, but with its fixed nature, Aquarius encourages us to hold firm to the vision. The co-ruler of this paradoxical sign, is after all, the planet of order and structure, Saturn. A key is not to fixate so obsessively on following a groove of thought, that you lose mental flexility as new ideas come in.
