Say goodbye to everything “basic” during Aquarius Season

Ah, the magic of Aquarius season—a zodiac sign so paradoxical that it invites us all to stand out in the crowd while also embracing the spirit of community. (Yes, it’s possible.) Form a collective with other free spirits. Then, go make a positive social impact when this humanitarian air sign rules the skies.

For the next four weeks, the Sun in communal Aquarius can help you cast a dream team or connect to groups that align with your vision and amplify your strengths. Use this solar season to assemble your allies and start making magic together. A mission driven project, an opportunity to better the world? Let’s go! 2024 is the Year of Transcendent Leadership, after all.

Do some winter whiteboarding

Brainstorms can turn into divine downpours of ideas when Aquarius is at the wheel. During this annual four-week cycle, put all your future-focused ideas up on the whiteboard for consideration. Idealistic Aquarius prizes originality, but as a rational air sign, it teaches us to be like scientists. Run your “wouldn’t it be crazy if…” notions through a battery of tests before you launch them into the public.

Be wary of unrealistic expectations, but don’t let fear of failure or being “too ambitious” stop you from cooking things up in the lab.

Inclusivity rules

Aquarius is the sign of friendship and popularity, but not according to the Mean Girl rules of Regina George. Create inclusivity in your community during Aquarius season. Make it your mission to bring out the best in others by keeping conversations solution-oriented and high-vibe—yes, even when talking about momentous subjects like social justice that activist Aquarius cares deeply for.  

Success feels sweetest when it’s shared, especially during this potent four-week spell. Remember: everyone has a gift to offer the world. Roles may reshuffle on teams or you may leave one group to work with another crew whose interests and values are in line with your own. 

Add in some AI

The robots and aliens are here to stay. (Heck, Aquarius knew they’ve been here all along!) Rather than giving in to fear, make friends with them during future-forward Aquarius season.

With El Sol in this tech-savvy sign, use digital channels to support your efforts now. AI is not technically new. We’ve been using it on our smartphones for years. 

Lean into technology to pump up your processes, streamline your searches and find your people faster. The perfect left brain to your right brain (or vice versa) could be a click or two away.

Love Gets Experimental During Aquarius Season 

Oh, yeah, baby…never knew you were into that? Drop the judgments, because Aquarius season is time to (safely) explore your kinks. Cool and detached at the Water Bearer can be, this unconventional four-week transit can bring verrry interesting developments to the game of love. Let your mind (and fantasies) wander beyond their prior scope.

Maybe you’re not ready to consider relationship arrangements like polyamory, group playtime, or tantric retreats—or maybe you are? Aquarius rules electricity, so a toy drawer refresh can create just the right, er, love buzz.

As the sign of friendship and universal love, Aquarius can blur lines between friendship and situationship. Couples can enjoy more time socializing as a pair. And if your date nights get a little edgier, Aquarius approves!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Getting geared up for hibernation mode? Not likely, Taurus. The Sun blasts into Aquarius on January 20, setting your ambitious tenth house on fire until February 18. Whether you’ve got visions of becoming your own boss or snagging the corner office, harness this go-getter energy to get clear on your career goals. Once you nail the right direction (or right next steps), start putting your plan of action into motion this Aquarius season. You always excel when presented with a challenge, Bull, so set the bar high. Read more Taurus horoscopes.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The world could feel like your oyster again starting today as the Sun blasts into Aquarius and your expansive ninth house from January 20 until February 18. Set your lens to the widest possible angle, whether that’s a huge career move, a dream vacation, gap year or entrepreneurial venture. This is the time to dream BIG. Don’t worry about how realistic your ideas are. Allow your imagination to run a little wild this Aquarius season. The wider the net you cast, the more likely you are to reel in something tremendously rewarding—AND sustainable. Read more Gemini horoscopes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Paddle out of the kiddie pool, Crab, and dive into the deep end of life. While the Sun tours Aquarius and your intense eighth house from January 20 until February 18, skimming the surface isn’t going to cut it. Nor will small talk or ANY superficial interactions, for that matter. You’re craving deep, soulful connections, so skip the group hangs and schedule intimate tete-a-tetes. Single? You might meet your match or spark up a smoldering attraction. Couples could take a meaningful next step, from ring shopping to picking out baby names. Read more Cancer horoscopes.

Leo (July 23-August 22) 

Two’s your magic number for the next four weeks as the life-affirming Sun makes its annual visit to your seventh house of relationships from January 20 to February 18. Whether for business or pleasure, putting more effort in growing and nurturing your unions will deliver a huge ROI this Aquarius season. You tend to give till it hurts, Leo, so be discriminating about which connections are worthy of your time. (Especially important since your energy may be lower while the Sun is so far from your home base.) Longtime couples could make a significant move now, so make sure you’re really in sync before taking the plunge. Read more Leo horoscopes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Get the year moving in a clean, green direction with a recommitment to taking excellent care of yourself. The Sun shifts into Aquarius, your sixth house of wellness, staying January 20 until February 18. For the past month, you’ve been enjoying some mindless indulgences, but now you’ve had enough. Hop back on the wellness wagon with plant-based meals, heart-pumping exercise and a better sleep-to-party ratio. Since there’s no way around a busy work schedule, devote time to streamlining your systems and getting into an organized groove. Read more Virgo horoscopes.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

The Sun swings OUT of somber Capricorn and your sentimental fourth house and blasts into Aquarius, ruler of your playful and romantic fifth house, January 20 through February 18. The holiday season may be behind you, but you’re not quite ready to get down to business. And yet this is a time for life-affirming moves. Step back from anything—and anyone—who doesn’t bring joy to your life. By creating space, you give Cupid a target for his arrows. Couples who’ve been butting heads have one order of business: Kiss and make up. Read more Libra horoscopes.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Where do you think YOU’RE going, Scorpio? Your heavenly hygge season begins January 20 as the Sun leaves your social third house and puts down stakes in your domestic fourth house, January 20 until February 18. Home and family will take precedence over almost everything for the next month. Catching up with relatives (and old friends who qualify as chosen family) fills a special spot in your heart. Use Aquarius season to make your chateau more of a sanctuary than just a place to hang your chapeau. Read more Scorpio horoscopes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Come out and play, Sagittarius! January 20’s arrival of the Sun in Aquarius and your social third house invites you to explore your neighborhood and spend more time pursuing all the extracurricular interests that have taken a back seat to work goals for the past month. You could make fast friends over the next four weeks, and existing connections can become richer—but you may have to be the one to extend the first invite. Writing books, recording podcasts and all forms of communication could fill your spare time between now and February 18. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

The Sun’s been powering through your sign for the past month, pumping you full of energy and confidence. Prepare to downshift today, however, as el Sol moves on to Aquarius and your second house of finances and security—issues near and dear to the Capricorn heart. Since December 21, you’ve been deluged by brainstorms and ideas, but focus and follow-through were harder to generate. Now it’s time to see what might actually fly. It’s also time to put your money resolutions into action. Where to start? With some serious belt-tightening and a budget overhaul.  Read more Capricorn horoscopes.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Break out the bubbles ‘cause Aquarius season is here! Beginning January 20, the Sun blasts into your sign for its annual four-week visit, kicking off your solar new year. You can step off the emotional roller coaster you’ve been riding for the past month and breathe a deep sigh of relief. You’re back to being the boss of you and ready to take on new challenges. Set some goals, map out a way to get there and then hit the gas. Keep your eye on the destination; this way, nothing can derail you. Read more Aquarius horoscopes.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

The Sun glides into Aquarius, your twelfth house of healing and closure, January 20 until February 18, giving you a chance to tie up some dangling loose ends. You’ve got four weeks until el Sol visits your sign, so use this time to clear out some space—literally (e.g., decluttering your home) and figuratively (cut that loser loose!). Do things that always make you feel good and whole during Aquarius season, like some long massages and maybe a private yoga session or two—whatever makes you say ahhh! Read more Pisces horoscopes.
