MERCURY enters AQUARIUS (Jan 16), and the SUN follows on Jan 20: Prometheans, Innovators & Light Leaders, Unite, in Cooperation!

17 Jan

AQUARIAN Times Ahead!

After the late CAPRICORN concentration, culminating on JAN 12 with the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction, first MERCURY (today JAN 16 at 10:31 am PST), and then the SUN (on JAN 20 at 6:55 am PST) cross over the ‘Prometheus Point’, and enter AQUARIUS!


MERCURY will be in AQ for 18 days, until FEB 3 – and come back MARCH 4 – 16.
You guessed it, MERCURY retro is in the making…
The SUN will be in AQ as ‘usual’ from JAN 20 – FEB 18.


AQ usually ‘hosts’ the Chinese New Year – on the day after the 2nd New Moon after Winter Solstice. The AQ New Moon will be on JAN 24, and the Chinese New Year of the Yang METAL RAT will start on JAN 25.

After a phase with SO much EARTH, and big stretches of NO AIR in the elemental mix (except for the MOON in her Journey through the Zodiac) AQ is a welcome and uplifting energy, as the most solid & rocky Earth of CAP turns into Aquarian AIR.
VENUS was the first to go through AQ
(Dec 19 – Jan 13), and now it’s MERCURY’s turn, followed by the SUN.

A Swiss client of mine who was born on this CAP – AQ cusp literally climbs up mountains, with his parachute / flying device, to glide around in the Air and down. He describes this as his ultimate Freedom.

On this cusp, we might have ‘done the work’ / accomplished our purpose (if that’s ever possible), and feel FREE. Or – even better, there’s no condition for living in Freedom.


AQ is ruled by URANUS which is nowa-years in TAURUS (2019 – 2026): Wake UP, Earthlings, and EmBody Freedom!

Mythological Prometheus climbed up Mount Olympus, seat of the gods / the elite, to bring the fire of illumination to humanity – a ‘rebellious’ act for which he was punished by the gods. Yet, an encounter with Wounded Healer Chiron who acknowledged for everyone to have access to ‘the Fire’ set him free.

If you have Planets / AC / Nodes on that cusp you might identify with this story, and also be here to dedicate ‘your work’ to the liberation of humanity.
Esoterically the energy is identified with the quality of a Light (AQ) Worker (CAP).
I like Light Leader better – meaning: leading by example (CAP), rather than doing the work ‘for them’. H
ere we also realize that our own work and achievements only go so far. Cooperation in Community of Light Leaders is key.


MERCURY, and then the SUN in AQ help us connect with others who’re also doing their work, and would be good matches for us, for cooperation, community building, and convergence of communities.

Maybe some of these contacts have already been activated… happened for me lately as I was asked by 2 community leaders to engage in cooperation with them and their circles – yay!


With MERCURY now leading on, and the SUN following into AQ next week, it would be good to expose yourself to groups and networks that you’re genuinely interested in cooperating with. So much easier nowadays with the Aquarian online web world!
And of course to talk with friends and like-spirited others, and about matters of collaboration and innovation.

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Man of Crystals – Inventor

 

The Voyager Tarot card Man of Crystals – Inventor expresses the AQ energy very well – experimentation, no expectation. It’s also the energy of the scientist & genius, as well as outsider if ‘too unique’ and not understood.

No need to be isolated / ice-olated in your lonely lab / life. That’s where community comes in. Find your circle.

 

 

By the way, I’m being asked quite often, and you might wonder too:

Is the AQUARIUS AGE already here? 

Or when does it start?

No clear-cut ‘correct’ answer for this.
Yes, according to astronomical calculations the AQ Age starts when the Spring Equinox point will move (always backwards, and very, very gradually) out of PISCES and into AQ – apparently in the year 2597 – faaaar ahead.

But for one thing, there are ‘overlaps’ in the constellations.
And there are other indications, besides the ‘mere’ calculations.

Over the last 25 years, we’ve seen a ‘preview’ of what the AQ age could be about, and 2020 – 2024 we’ll see some more indicators for Aquarian shifts:

 

  • URANUS and NEPTUNE were united in AQ in the late 1990’s – they have 84- and 165-year cycle, and a conjunction in AQ is super rare.
    What happened then?
    Personal computers became accessible for everyone; the Internet took off, and changed our social, communicative, and work world forever. In the meantime, the Internet and with it social media (an AQ-PI phenomenon, initiated round the time when URANUS moved from AQ to PI in 2003) are omnipresent, in any area of life!

 

  • SATURN will be on the CAP – AQ cusp / Promethean Point this year, 2020, and unite with JUPITER just days after both enter AQ. The JUPITER – SATURN conjunction at 0º28′ AQ at Winter Solstice 2020 will start a new 20-year socio-economic-political cycle.

 

  • PLUTO (in its 248-year cycle) will go into AQ in 2023 / 24.
    There’s a big time AQ Evolution coming up. 

    Looks like Humanity really gotta and can cooperate much more than ever. Since things get intense and extreme with PLUTO, we can also see a lot of alienation and encapsulation, social awkwardness, and other side effects of the technological self-sufficiency…
    Endeavours of replacing humans with robots will increase, and perhaps a massive ‘Space Age’ will break out, with settlements on other Planets, if Earth becomes uninhabitable – whoooaah!

 

Let’s already work well with the AQ energy, be innovative (URANUS / Prometheus, the AQ related Planetary Archetype loves that), connect with like-spirited others in high-level integrity, and cooperate in community to co-create into the future, a future ON Planet Earth, I’d propose.

 

 

Astro Data & Astro Dates for MERCURY & the SUN in AQ in the upcoming Phase

MERCURY is ‘exalted’ in AQ – the Zodiac energy it can operate best in.
Our thinking can be more systemic and out-of-the-box, crystal clear and detached, concerned with the greater good, forward-thinking, team-mind, brain storming, aiming at cooperative, innovative solutions.
Also, during MERCURY’s (initial) journey through AQ is a retro-free phase – NO Planet retro since JAN 10 until FEB 16. Things can manifest fast. 

Yet, MERCURY is ‘ahead of the game’ i.o.w., literally ahead of the SUN in the Zodiac now, from Earth perspective. The SUN enters AQ 4 days after MERCURY. An indicator that MERCURY retro will be coming up soon (FEB 16 – MARCH 9, all in PISCES, and just going back to the very end of AQ). The pre-Mercury-retro Shadow will start on the very end of AQ, on FEB 2.

So let’s not give the mind TOO much weight & authority. Let’s be mindful, rather than having our mind all too full and putting our foot in the mouth, esp. in community situations / with friends, esp. when not even present (like on social media platforms).
And: rather than over-thinking let’s come back to the Heart and speak from clear Consciousness.

 

MERCURY’s & the SUN’s connections with other Planets during their time in AQ

Hermetic Staff of Alchemy

MERCURY will make few alignments with other Planets while in AQ, yet prepare for retro.

The SUN in AQ (Jan 20 – Feb 18) will only make two alignments with other celestial bodies – on one day!

 

JAN 17
MERCURY in early AQ sextile CHIRON in early AR.
Re-invent yourself and speak from an authentic place.
Witnessing yourself in your thinking and communication can help heal early wounds.

 

JAN 18
MERCURY in early AQ square URANUS (Ruler of AQ) in early TAU.
Notice what happens when you’re stuck in your position. What’s going on in your body? Experiment with new sensory experiences that get you out of your head – and help you with thinking outside of the box.

 

JAN 22
The SUN in AQ in sextile with CHIRON in AR and in square with URANUS (Ruler of AQ) in TAU
Conscious awareness of what was already came up mentally / in conversation on Jan 17 / 18 via MERCURY in AQ (see above).
Being authentically you & present with what presents itself is being Free.

 

JAN 25 – Day of the Chinese New Year of the Yang Metal Rat
MERCURY in AQ in sextile with MARS in SAG
Inspired discussions & passionate movements – where is it going / where are we going together?

 

FEB 2
MERCURY at the end of AQ / cusp to PI enters the pre-retro Shadow (will go retro Feb 16 – March 9)
Easy on communication in a social energy field (esp if ‘they’ aren’t even present).

 

FEB 3
MERCURY enters PISCES (until March 4, and again March 16 – Apr 10, due to retro phase Feb 16 – March 9)
Open-Mindedness

 

MARCH 4 – 16
MERCURY retro-to-direct back at the end of AQ.
Bringing ease & flow & love into commUnity conversation.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.
The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.
I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

AQUARIAN Times Ahead – via the SUN (Jan 20 – Feb 18), MERCURY, LILITH, and the New Moon (Feb 4)

19 Jan

AQUARIAN Times Ahead!

After a phase with SO much rock-solid CAP EARTH, most concentrated round the Partial Solar Eclipse on JAN 5 / 6, and NO AIR in the Astro-elemental realm (except for LILITH in AQ and the MOON) since early Dec(!), AQ is a welcome and uplifting energy, as the most solid & rocky Earth of CAP turns into Aquarian AIR.

A Swiss client of mine who was born on this CAP – AQ cusp literally climbs up mountains, with his parachute / flying device, to glide around and down. He describes this as his ultimate Freedom.

The zodiacal season shifts this weekend from rock-solid CAPRICORN to airy AQUARIUS (happens yearly on JAN 19 / 20, dependent on your location). 
I like to call the cusp energy ‘Prometheus Point’ (Prometheus is the mythological Archetype for the Planet URANUS which rules AQ), or, in plain English: ‘Community Builder Point’. 

 

This year, the SUN crosses over the ‘Prometheus Point’ and enters AQUARIUS on JAN 20 at 1:00 am PST – just 20 hrs before the CAN / LEO SuperMoon / Wolf Moon TLE on SUNday JAN 20 eve!
Yes, the CAP / AQ cusp can have also a cold and icy ‘Lonely Wolf’ energy – if we haven’t found our like-spirited ‘pack’ yet.
The Total Lunar Eclipse in early LEO – AQ shows us how important is is to bring our healthy Self Love and authentic Creativity into Community.

Mountain Joy in Switzerland – Visit in 2010

What comes after attaining mastery, and ‘making it’ – when, let’s say: CAP is content with its accomplishment (hmmm, is s/he ever? Always dealing with that notion!)?
Well, up on the summit of the mountain, literally, or symbolically: of career and mastery the AIR is thin, and it can get lonely.
But, hey, there are others too on the same, or on ‘their mountain’, and we can connect with them as a team, or like-spirited friends – a big notion of AQ is cooperation and friendship.

 

And if  the ones ‘on top’ are ruling and running the show, the Promethean aspect of the CAP – AQ cusp kicks in: 

Prometheus – the Archetype of URANUS

Prometheus climbed up Mount Olympus, seat of the gods / the elite, to bring the Fire of illumination to Humanity, was punished though by the gods for his hubris, and chained on a rock.
Only an encounter with  Wounded Healer Chiron who acknowledged that everyone should have access to ‘the Fire’ set him free.
Divine inspiration 
and enlightenment are available to everyone!


Let’s connect!
The social factor comes in again
(as with all AIR signs), and we realize we need one another and can’t build a community by ourselves. Hence, social groups and circles of like-spirited humans come together, in / as a network, either physically, or through the Aquarian ether-net – which took off when NEPTUNE and URANUS were in AQ, from the mid-1990’s to early 2000’s.

Speaking of the www (which almost looks like the AQ symbol!) – it also shows up as an ‘ether wave’ in the Johfra Bosschart AQ painting below.

The Planet URANUS which rules AQ is the Astro Archetype associated with Prometheus.
URANUS is presently (2011 – 2019) in ARIES, has just changed direction from Earth perspective on JAN 6, and goes now direct again.

Lots of impulses for true awakened liberation from within are in the collective field, and you probably notice them in your personal life too, esp. if you have AC / MC, SUN, MOON, or Planets in late AR, CAN, LI, or CAP.
The Total Lunar Eclipse on JAN 20 / 21 on the CAN / LEO – CAP / AQ axis catalyzes also URANian liberation and renewal via a T-square active well into 2019.

 

Big News:
URANUS will fully change signs this year (after a ‘trial phase’ last year) – and go over the ‘Settling Point’ into TAURUS on MARCH 6, 2019. 

A Wake-up Call for us Earthlings… and for new ways of collaborating innovatively with the Earth rather than continuing to exploit her. A call for new energies, and for being in new ways in our own Earth body.
Lots of us are also feeling called to – at least experiment with – living at a new location on Planet Earth – perhaps closer to Nature.

Co-building (still a rather CAP concept) in liberated, egalitarian Community is actually rather: Sharing of Energy, like the AQ ‘Water / Energy Bearer’ – incl. FREE energy that’s available to everyone.
With URANUS in TAU (2018 / 19 – 2026) what’s called The Sharing Economy will become more common place.

 

If you have Planets / AC / Nodes on the CAP / AQ cusp you might identify with the Promethean story and the Archetype of URANUS, and be here to dedicate ‘your work’ to the liberation of Humanity.
Esoterically it’s called Light (AQ) Worker (CAP). I like Light Leader better – leading by example (CAP), rather than doing the work ‘for them’.

In the CAP / AQ field we realize that our own work and achievements only go this far. Cooperation in Community of Light Leaders is Key.

URANUS Rules AQUARIUS Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

I love how in the richly symbolic painting by Johfra Bosschart the Aquarian ‘Water Bearer’ / ‘Energy Provider’ pours Prana over the 7 Lotus blossoms.

Perhaps a pointer to Chakra activation, which opens us up to cosmic energies, naturally liberates and empowers us – whoever we are.

 

What does the SUN in AQ 2019 (JAN 20 – FEB 18) shed Light on?


Literally, on the MOON, with the Earth Shadow exactly in-between the SoLunar sphere, at the Total Lunar Eclipse, at the very 1st day and degree of AQ, on JAN 20 / 21.

Some of the old and cold ‘Lone Wolf’ CAP / AQ themes are on the way out, while summery, warm, loving, nurturing CAN / LEO Goddess qualities are supported to take the lead. They’re needed and welcome IN community, society, and Humanity.

 

JAN 29
Day of the MERCURY / SUN Union –
the one furthest away from MERCURY retro (from March 5 on), and MERCURY moves fastest now. Yes, MERCURY will be also in AQ, ‘only’ JAN 23 – FEB 10 – see below. 

From that day onward, MERCURY will be ahead of the SUN in the Zodiac before it gets ‘lassoed-in’ under M-r. Even though it’s a time for brilliant thoughts and brain storms we also need to watch  for the mind not to take over and take precedence over Spirit and the Heart, represented by the SUN.

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with IMBOLC / Brigid’s / Candlemas, Ostara / Spring Equinox, Beltane, Litha, / Summer Solstice, Lughnassadh / Lammas, Mabon /  Fall Equinox Halloween / Samhain, Yule / Winter Solstice.

FEB 1 / 2
IMBOLC / Brigid’s / Candlemas.
Mid-Winter is reached, and the first signs of Spring come forth. A time to honour the Season. Beautiful inspirations from The Goddess and the Green Man here.

 

On FEB 4 will be the mid-AQ (Imbolc) NEW MOON – leading to the Chinese New Year of the Yin Earth Pig, starting on FEB 5.
The AQ NEW MOON links up with MERCURY / LILITH, both also in AQ.
A wildly refreshing and liberating energy, post the ‘rocky’ CAP vibes over weeks.
Stay tuned for the AQ NEW MOON / Chinese New Year blog post.

 

FEB 7
The SUN in AQ sextiles JUPITER in SAG.
A double call for Freedom, from the two largest celestial bodies in our Solar System. Freedom to be with your People, and Freedom to Move – from the Heart.

 

FEB 17
At the very end of the Aquarian Journey, the SUN sextiles URANUS, Ruler of AQ, and presently at the very end of ARIES (where the SUN is super strong). 

Freedom to be YOU. Authentic as the Awake Self.

 

And what’s with MERCURY’s Trip in AQ this Year (JAN 23 – FEB 10)?

As you probably know, MERCURY is exalted (comes with ‘honours’) in AQ – since AQ helps the mind to be free, inter-linked, systemic yet out-of-the-box, innovative and collaborative. 
As mentioned, MERCURY is now fastest too, and furthest away from the retro phases, plus, meets and passes the SUN, on JAN 29.
End of JAN is an excellent time for getting together, brain storm, co-create in projects with your team, or your group of friends, and for new and freer ways of seeing things.

 

FEB 3
MERCURY in AQ sextiles JUPITER in SAG – both strong in their signs.

Chances are, inspiration is high, opening you up to see win-wins, and excellent opportunities to take travelling, storytelling, writing, journaling to the next level. Yes,  a great time to be on it with your online presence – it might reach just the right people who continue to weave the web with you.

 

With the AQ NEW MOON on FEB 4 comes also the yearly union between MERCURY and LILITH, both being met by the MOON on that day too. 
What does it mean to be in your ‘wild and free Nature’?

 

FEB 7
MERCURY in late AQ sextiles MARS in late ARIES.

Don’t just think and share those brilliant ideas – get going and act on them.

 

FEB 9
MERCURY sextiles its transpersonal ‘higher octave’ URANUS, the Ruler of AQ, now in late ARIES.

Primed for paradigm shifts and brilliant experiments that can take you to the next level. Keep the connections going, and the ball rolling.


FEB 10
MERCURY enters PISCES where it’ll be for a loooong time, until APR 16.

You guessed it… because it’ll go retro in PI, MARCH 5 – 28.
More about MERCURY’s Surf Season in an upcoming timely Astro~News blog post.

 

By the way, I’m being asked quite often, and you might wonder too:

Is the AQUARIUS AGE already here? Or when does it start?

No clear-cut ‘scientifically correct’ answer for this – very Aquarian.
Yes, according to astronomical calculations the AQ Age starts when the Spring Equinox point will move (always backwards, and very, very gradually) out of PISCES and into AQ – apparently in the year 2597 – faaaar ahead.

But for one thing, there are ‘overlaps’ in the constellations.
And there are other indications, besides the ‘mere’ calculations.

Over the last 20 years, we’ve seen a ‘preview’ of what the AQ Age could be about:

  • URANUS and NEPTUNE were united in AQ in the late 1990’s – they have 84- and 165-year cycle, and a conjunction in AQ is super rare.
    What happened then?
    Personal computers became accessible for everyone, and the Internet took off, and changed our social, communicative, and work world forever. In the meantime, the Internet is omnipresent, in any area of life, and continuously being developed! 
  • PLUTO (with its 248-year cycle) will go into AQ in 2023 / 24.
    There’s a big time AQ Evolution coming up. 

    Looks like Humanity really needs to and can cooperate much more than ever.
    Since things get intense and extreme with PLUTO, we can also see a lot of alienation and encapsulation, social awkwardness, and other side effects of the technological self-sufficiency… 

    Endeavours of replacing humans with robots will increase, and perhaps a massive ‘Space Age’ will break out, with settlements on other Planets, if Earth becomes uninhabitable – whoooaah!

Let’s already / any time co-create with the AQ energy, be innovative (URANUS / Prometheus, the AQ related Planetary Archetype loves that), connect with like-spirited others in integrity, and cooperate in Circles and Community into the future, a future ON Planet Earth, I’d propose.

 

Blessings for the AQ Times!

VENUS and the SUN enter AQUARIUS (Jan 17 & 19), and MERCURY follows on Jan 31: Prometheans & Light Leaders, Unite, in Cooperation!

15 Jan

AQUARIAN Times Ahead!

Right after the late CAPRICORN New Moon (Jan 16 at 6:17 pm PST), first VENUS (on Jan 17 at 5:54 PST), and then the SUN (on Jan 19 at 7:09 pm PST) cross over the ‘Prometheus Point’, and enter AQUARIUS!


VENUS will be in AQ not quite a month, until Feb 10.
The SUN will be in AQ as ‘usual’ from Jan 19 – Feb 18.


This year, the AQ season will see also AQ Eclipses, as the South Node is in AQ – until Nov.
There’ll be a Total Lunar (Jan 31) and a Partial Solar Eclipse (Feb 15 – also the eve of the Chinese New Year).

After a phase with SO much EARTH, and NO AIR (except for the MOON) since mid-Dec(!), in the Astro-elemental realm, AQ is a welcome and uplifting energy, as the most solid & rocky Earth of CAP turns into Aquarian AIR.

A Swiss client of mine who was born on this CAP – AQ cusp literally climbs up mountains, with his parachute / flying device, to glide around and down. He describes this as his ultimate Freedom.

On this cusp, we might have ‘done the work’ / accomplished our purpose (if that’s ever possible), and feel FREE.

Prometheus – the Archetype of Uranus – Bringing the Fire of the Gods to Humanity

Mythological Prometheus climbed up Mount Olympus, seat of the gods / the elite, to bring the fire of illumination to humanity (was punished though by the gods, and only an encounter with  Wounded Healer Chiron who acknowledged that everyone should have access to ‘the fire’ set him free).


So yeah, if you have Planets / AC / Nodes on that cusp you might identify with this story, and also be here to dedicate ‘your work’ to the liberation of humanity.
Esoterically it’s called Light (AQ) Worker (CAP).
I like Light Leader better – leading by example (CAP), rather than doing the work ‘for them’.

And here we realize that our own work and achievements only go this far.
Cooperation in Community of Light Leaders is key.
VENUS, and then the SUN in AQ help us attract others who’re also doing their work, and would be good matches for us, for cooperation, community building, and  convergence of communities.

Maybe some of these contacts have already been activated… happened for me lately where I was asked by 3 community leaders to engage in cooperation with them – yay!

The AIR is thin, in those great and established heights, and it’s cool out there.
I.o.w., in the old (!) world hierarchical, patriarchal paradigm – which thankfully is changing, complements PLUTO in CAP – it’s been an ‘elite’ place that’s a) hard to access, and b) there might not be many good matching people out there, and c) they’ve already established their system, and their circles.
Hope you don’t buy into this anymore, because: The times, they are a-changing. 


With VENUS leading on, and the SUN following into AQ this week, it would be good to expose yourself to groups and networks that you’re genuinely interested in cooperating with, to increase the odds for meeting ‘them’.
So much easier nowadays with the Aquarian online web world!

    Personal computers became accessible for everyone, and the Internet took off, and changed our social, communicative, and work world forever. In the meantime, the Internet is omnipresent, in any area of life!
  • PLUTO (with its 248-year cycle) will go into AQ in 2023 / 24.
    There’s a big time AQ Evolution coming up. 

    Looks like Humanity really gotta and can cooperate much more than ever. Since things get intense and extreme with PLUTO, we can also see a lot of alienation and encapsulation, social awkwardness, and other side effects of the technological self-sufficiency…
    Endeavours of replacing humans with robots will increase, and perhaps a massive ‘Space Age’ will break out, with settlements on other Planets, if Earth becomes uninhabitable – whoooaah!

Let’s already / any time work and create with the AQ energy optimally, be innovative (Uranus / Prometheus, the AQ related Planetary Archetype loves that), connect with like-spirited others in high-level integrity, and cooperate in community to co-create into the future, a future ON Planet Earth, I’d propose.

 

Next UP, this Year and Month:

MERCURY will also pay AQ a visit, between Jan 31 and Feb 17 – when, as a grand finale, it aligns with the SUN, just before both enter PISCES.

MERCURY is ‘exalted’ in AQ – the energy it can operate best in:
Our thinking can be more systemic and out-of-the-box, crystal clear and detached, concerned with the greater good, forward-thinking, team-mind, brain storming, aiming at cooperative, innovative solutions.

 

MARS will be this year for a very long time in AQ this year:
May 15 – Aug 15, and Sept 10 – Nov 15!

Why so long?
Because of the MARS retro phase from June 26 – Aug 27 (back into end of CAP).

What are endeavours that really serve the system, the greater good, and humanity???
More about this major transit of 2018 closer to the date.

 

Blessings for the AQ Times!
Needless to say (I do it anyway):


Astrology is an Aquarian Art.
