Oh, how I love Aquarius! There’s just something downright invigorating about it. Lying directly across the wheel from Leo, the sign of personal ego and the monarch, Aquarius is associated with rebel consciousness and the rights of the individual. Storm the Bastille!
Aquarians may not look strange, act odd, or sound peculiar, but that’s just a way to fool you ~ and it’s a real struggle for them to maintain this mirage of “normalcy.” The heart of Aquarius is beating with a completely unique and surprising rhythm. They are as wild as conga drums in a Mozart concerto, as disconcerting as plaid pants and a paisley shirt, bizarre as jalapeno infused chocolate, and as beautiful as roses in the snow. Their wackiness ~ no matter how well disguised ~ is unmatched by any other sign in the zodiac. It’s all these little quirks and oddities that have given Aquarius the questionable and beloved title of Revolutionary!
Full Moon times are that chink in the astrological wall where we are challenged to focus and integrate two opposing sources of light. If we can do that, a prism explodes and we are able to see all the possibilities, the myriad expression of the one new light. This is not a time of “on one hand, but then again, on the other hand.” It’s a time of blending, an alchemical moment, if you will. It’s a new and improved! recipe for advancement of your consciousness. But you can’t get there by doing or being the same old, same old. You have to revolt. You have to storm your inner Bastille.
Aquarius is so bizarre that its two ruling planets, Saturn and Uranus, are actually at odds with themselves. Saturn is structure, ancient. Uranus is explosive, modern.
…one of the key features of modernity is the shift of emphasis from the privileges and power of institutions (a monarch, a clerical establishment, the state itself) to the rights and relative autonomy of the individual.

- Where do you need to have a revolution?
- What light from the Leo/Aquarius axis can you bring into focus and integrate into your everyday life?
Whatever it is, I can guarantee you one thing ~ life will never be the same again and it’s gonna be alright.
