As we moved out of Capricorn Season and started Aquarius Season yesterday, we're focused on the new, the original, the future, and the unconventional. Capricorn Season was a last hurrah for Capricorn as the 2020 Capricorn stellium came to an end in December, and Aquarius is the dominant energy for 2021. Which we feel super strong now!
If you're an Aquarius (Sun, Moon, or Rising), or you have a strong natal Uranus (the natural ruler of Aquarius), you don't need anyone to tell you this - you know it, you feel it! Fellow air signs Gemini and Libra can fare better during this time, along with fire signs Aries and Sagittarius. Fellow fixed signs Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio may have to put in extra effort.
This Aquarius Season is elevated not only because Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius (so we've got an Aquarius stellium cooking), but it's also elevated thanks to Mercury retrograde in Aquarius January 30th - February 20th. That doesn't automatically mean it's going to waste though - not if you know what to do and what to focus on!
About Aquarius Energy:
Aquarius is the sign of the unconventional, the different, the weird. This is a sign that doesn't want to be stuck in the traditional. Its previous sign, Capricorn, is the traditional one. Aquarius wants to move away from that and expand the way we express ourselves.
When you're an Aquarius native (or have a strong Uranus or stacked 11th house, which corresponds to Aquarius), there is likely something (or multiple somethings) weird about you, but you may not see this as a bad thing. Instead, it's more like a badge of honor. You recognize that it's part of what makes you who you truly are, a pure individual and iconoclast.
If the energy is very strong for you, you may scoff at the traditional ways and have to learn how to use it when warranted. But most Aquarians understand that sometimes the old ways are needed, and don't completely avoid them. You just know that it doesn't have to be that way always, and there's room for more growth when you open up your options.

Aquarius Season is a big deal for you when it comes to embracing your individuality and being true to who you are, Aries. It's a lot easier for you, and you can feel it's so important, like you can't breathe if you're not being your real, unconventional self. This Aquarius Season likely wants you to focus on ways you've been blocked from doing that, and remove those blocks so you're even freer to be unapologetically who you are. Try not to doubt yourself too much, and recognize when you're just giving in to pessimism about situations.
Aquarius Season is usually a time that shines a light on your goals and where you're going in life, Taurus. You can go about achieving and succeeding and making progress in your own way, and this may be completely against the grain, but you can rock it. This Aquarius Season likely wants you to assess where you've been boxing in, which responsibilities have been holding you back, and how your light has been a little stifled. If you haven't been able to take your own approach to what you strive for, this may be a time to change that.
Aquarius Season is the season where you can focus on expanding, exploring, and having new experiences in your own way, Gemini. This can help you open up more to opportunities, and you can feel true to who you are. You may give more attention to your beliefs, and you can embrace the quirkier one that you have. This Aquarius Season may cause you to focus on your beliefs, and work on blocks that have kept you from being able to live according to them. If you've felt like you're boxed in, this keeps you from having the experiences you want.
Aquarius Season brings you to the more serious aspects of your life, Cancer. You can focus on finding solutions to complicated problems, but the solutions you have are different, unique, or discovered in your own way. You're not usually the most unconventional sign, but this is one of the ways that you are. This Aquarius Season likely urges you to think outside of the box more to find solutions, to find strength, or to find personal power. Try not to shy away from these things, and understand that transformation can be a good thing now.
Aquarius Season lights up your relationship sector, Leo. This means you take a different approach to your relationships, appreciate different relationship setups, or you attract Aquarius-types to your life and like people who you see as rebels. This Aquarius Season might bring out some troubles in those relationships, and anything that hasn't been dealt with may seem unbearable. Take your own approach to them, and find new, different ways of working them out. Just make sure the other people are on board!
Aquarius Season activates your work sector, Virgo. For such a conventional sign, you're someone who likely wants to stay on your toes when it comes to the work you do, and everything you focus on daily. Without that, you get bored, fast. This Aquarius Season can highlight ways that you have gotten bored, areas where things have been stale and you haven't shaken things up in a while. It may be little things, in small ways, but it can make a big difference. Also make sure to take care of the routine stuff (even if in your own way!).
Aquarius Season stirs up energy in your love sector, Libra. You are the sign of relationships, so a little focus on love can be pretty comfortable for you. But when it comes to love, you can take your own approach and deal with love in your own unique way. This Aquarius Season, you may need to work on issues that have caused your love relationships to grow stale or boring. Work them out, and connect to your heart. Being more heart-centric can help with maneuvering through this season. Treat it well.
Aquarius Season focuses on your home and family life, Scorpio. You're likely someone who creates your own family in your own way, usually with people you aren't actually related to, and whose dream home life is not really the standard, but you love it. This Aquarius Season may trigger emotional issues that need to be addressed in order for you to feel comfortable and supported. If you've felt boxed in lately emotionally, that can make you feel incredibly uncomfortable and stir up some deep issues. Tackle that.
Aquarius Season stimulates your mental energy, Sagittarius. You're a pretty engaging sign anyway, but now you're even more active. You likely want to chat about everything and have a million ideas, but you're thinking outside of the box with those ideas, and you're expressing yourself in your own way. This Aquarius Season may prompt you to work on blocks that have kept you from being as open as you'd like to be. If it's felt like you've needed to be ultra practical and traditional, you can address the core reason for that.
Aquarius Season slows energy down for you, Capricorn. It's been such a high ride for you over the last year+, and now you finally get a break. You can work to be more present and grounded, and you can do so in unconventional ways. This Aquarius Season can help you focus on ways you haven't been able to do that and areas of your life that need some of that grounding energy. Allow yourself to be present, and find ways to do so that are unique and all your own.
Aquarius Season is your season, Aquarius, and this is a big deal for you! You can focus on what you want to move forward with for the next year, and you can go about it in your own way. This Aquarius Season is even bigger for that, and what you focus on now can be a focus for not just the next year, but many years (or even decades) to come. No pressure! You may first need to work on blocks for this though, and ways that you get in your own way, what you lack patience with, or what has been ignored. Address impulsive behavior and improve your smarts.
Aquarius Season is a quieter time of the year for you, Pisces. You likely want some time to yourself, to rest and recharge, and you can find ways to do this that are unconventional or new. You can feel more true to yourself when you're away from the spotlight and not being bothered by others. This Aquarius Season may drain you much more, and there may be some old baggage that needs to be released or addressed. It may feel like you don't get to be as true to yourself as you'd like, but this may be pointing to a subconscious block that you need to become more consciously aware of.
