Cupido in Aquarius 2024
Cupido in Aquarius brings an unconventional flavor to our crushes. We may suddenly become infatuated with someone or something, and can get over our infatuation just as quickly. Who and what we become obsessed with may be different from usual, and we may appreciate the unconventional.
This passionate energy can get amplified when Pluto also moves into Aquarius on January 20th, though the two won't align. Still, this can greatly increase obsession and we can get enthralled. It's interesting because Aquarius tends to be detached, but once it becomes attached, it has a hard time letting go.
We can become more infatuated with our dreams for the future, what we hope for, and our independence. We may also develop crushes on friends, and need to make sure this is legit, otherwise it might wreck a friendship.
