Late this Sunday, January 19, the Sun rolls into quirky but stubborn Aquarius, giving air and fire signs more to be happy about. Mercury acted as the Sun’s harbinger when it entered Aquarius a week ago Saturday giving notice of things to come. Now there will be three planets in air plus the Moon on occasion and we will have a more comfortable balance in elements for a change.
Best not forget Aquarius is one of the four fixed signs either, along with Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. When your typical Aquarius takes a stand on some issue, they usually cannot be budged. Whether or not this is a good thing depends on if you agree with them I suppose. This is one of the reasons they can be incredibly effective working on the behalf of others, often for humanitarian reasons.
Aquarius Sun folk may fare less well when it comes to their personal relationships though. What makes a successful crusader for the betterment of humankind can work out less well dealing with all the boring details of day to day life. I have had any number of Aquarius friends over the years and enjoyed them a great deal. Strangely enough I don’t get on well with the Aquarius people in my immediate family . . . which includes my mother-in-law. Ah well, so it goes. 😀
: something (such as a situation) that is made up of two opposite things and that seems impossible but is actually true or possible
: someone who does two things that seem to be opposite to each other or who has qualities that are opposite
: a statement that seems to say two opposite things but that may be true
The whole paradox thing is something Aquarius practically invented. Unlike many others, Aquarius is quite comfortable with the whole concept and usually carries around several paradoxes in their heads at any given time. Those like myself who have Aquarius third houses do all right with these too. The other fixed signs (Taurus, Leo and Scorpio) are far less comfortable with these, probably why they end up muttering a lot after conversations with their Aquarian brethren.
If you want the lowdown on what Aquarius is really like, Aquarian Barry Goddard AKA Dharmaruci had a wonderful post on the species – Aquarians! He is a very funny and insightful astrologer whose posts I’ve read with pleasure for many years.
Mundane astrology, the astrology of worldly events, is an area Aquarius excels in. Barry Goddard’s blog, Astrotabletalk, offers many posts on world affairs. Another Aquarian astrologer who is an excellent mundane astrology is Nancy Sommers of Starlight News. If you are interested in this type of thing, check out their blogs.
