Aquarius Season

“Difficult is a far cry from impossible. The distance between these two lies hope. Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay.”
― M. Angelou

Let’s face it, Capricorn Season is like a celestial Jekyll & Hyde. There’s a lot (some may say too much, but don’t look at me) of socializing & love bombardment prior & during festive times, followed by a total slobbinness & self-inflicted solitude straight after, when everyone is too drained & too broke to face the ugly January world outside the window.

This is where Aquarius brings us some much needed water to detoxify & help us see new (often unconventional) ways how to tackle all those resolutions & projects lined up for 2023.

Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn – a planet of restrictions responsibility & structure, and Uranus – which provides an opposing pull towards disorder & abruptness (it’s the only planet in our solar system that spins on its side!). Together they feed into Aquarian lust for changing the world & bringing people together, often sabotaged by being chaotic & aloof. Speaking of Saturn - it's actually currently transiting through the sign of Aquarius (March 2020 - March 2023) - a planet of restrictions vs. Aquarian yearning for freedom - it's not at all surprising we've been globally hit with massive restrictions to our freedom during this transit.

But there's lots of goodness coming out of this transit to be expected too - finding a new strength in coming together, nourishing our communities, giving voice to marginalized and inverting the unhelpful economical and political hierarchies.

We are slowly emerging from a hardcore combination of Capricorn Season pragmatic energies combined with the infamous Mercury Retrograde that concluded just a couple days ago, after injecting some of that lovely chaotic energy into our plans, communication, technology.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, this few coming weeks will be to harness Aquarian power of ‘just-the-right-amount’ of eccentricity, inventiveness & enthusiasm to tackle our challenges & goals, without giving in the temptation to leave work half-done, being impractical or rebellious for no good reason.

Aquarians love their freedom & proudly show off the little quirks that make them unique. Step into your weirdness fully & confidently (the upcoming Leo full moon energy might help with that) & seek the community in which you can cherish, tend to & grow your distinctive qualities.

Big heart, big ambitions, humanitarian streak and spiritual guidance – all of this rings true for Aquarians (I mean..Oprah is an Aquarius, how much more zodiac realness do you need?), so this season you might feel drawn to explore new spiritual and healing paths like Ayurveda, Acupuncture or Reiki, reach out to connect with like-minded magickal people.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

In the Major Arcana we find Aquarius reflected back to us in the number-one healing & gentle archetype of “The Star” tarot card.

You know that proverbial light that always comes after darkness? Just when the light of the new day is born, The Star flickers in the sky, indicating the very beginning of our process of healing & renewal after the disastrous (although in a grand scale of things always necessary) events of the preceding card – ‘The Tower”. Think back to that one nasty breakup or a tragedy that took you completely by surprise and for weeks or months it felt like everything’s going to feel shit forever. The Star is not here to rescue you. She won’t tell you that life will feel great today or tomorrow or two years from now. Instead her message is the one of a new cycle containing all the beautiful cards following The Star – archetypes & lessons in facing & getting to know our Higher Self – that’s about to start.

No matter what shifts & challenges emerge for you this season, let this be your affirmation:


Partly a meditation journey, partly a personal magical ritual, you'll be gently guided through breathing, visualization and affirmations to balance and empower mind, body and soul in alignment with Aquarius Season themes of authenticity, uniqueness, connections to others & to greater good.
