Capricorn season is all about toiling away to reach some big goal, but it ain’t easy working your ass off like this. Luckily, on January 20 at 3:59 AM (EST), the Sun leaves industrious, pragmatic Capricorn and flies into the social and eccentric air sign of Aquarius! Now that you’ve recognized your achievements and discovered new resources, how will you use them to give back? Aquarius is the most far-out and humanitarian sign, so expect to channel the hippie vibes of this fixed air sign during this period!
Aquarius is an intellectual air sign that’s all about relationships and communicating. The types of relationships that Aquarius is typically associated with is those of a platonic nature—this is the sign of networking and community, after all. You approach life with a more open heart and desire to connect with others now, and find yourself more willing to cooperate and work with a team. Aquarius is also the sign of great thinkers and geniuses, so you’re more imaginative and eager to learn. With Aquarius being a fixed sign, it’s also easy to be stubborn with a ‘my way or the highway’ mentality! You may feel like your tactics to solve a problem or finish a project are the best, but try to be open-minded and understand that the bright ideas of others can be just as good as yours!
Aquarius energy is brilliant, eccentric, and brings out your inner rebel–though, hopefully, one with a cause.
Speaking of working with others, Aquarius is co-ruled by two planets—Saturn and Uranus—which explains how hard this progressive sign works towards making love, not war. Saturn is the planet of tasks, structure, and responsibility, and provides Aquarius’ commitment towards bettering the world. However, Uranus is the total opposite of Saturn and rules disruption and suddenness. Aquarius energy is brilliant, eccentric, and brings out your inner rebel–though, hopefully, one with a cause. This season asks you consider ‘What can I do to contribute? Where do my special qualities and traits fit in so I can do my part?’

Despite being such a loving and generous sign, Aquarius is also quite self-conscious and individualistic. Not so much in the ‘me, me, me!’ type of way its opposite sign, Leo, is, but Aquarius is very aware of their unique traits and how they stand out in a group. This helps you develop a deeper understanding of who you are, what you’re interested in, and all of your little quirks and oddities. With everybody feeling more congenial and social, now is the time to let your freak flag fly. People are more accepting of your quirks and encourage them more than ever now, and you feel the same way about the peculiarities of others, even if they’d usually be a big turn-off for you.
Basically, Aquarius season is a friendly get-together compared to the ass-kicking you endured all Capricorn season. This is the best time of year to hang out with friends, go to parties, and make new connections! Networking is a huge theme of Aquarius season, too. As for time spent alone, now is the ideal moment to leisurely explore a new topic of interest—the more out-there, the better!
As famous Aquarius Oprah Winfrey once said, ‘Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.’
You’re also way more in-touch with your existing friend group, their beliefs, and the role you play with them. You might find out that the views of others are no longer aligned with your own, but usually, this is where growing closer with your network is the general mood. As famous Aquarius Oprah Winfrey once said, ‘Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.’
Fellow air signs Libra and Gemini have an easy, breezy, beautiful Aquarius season, while the other fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, and Leo, find this time of year is more tense than usual. But regardless of your sign, the Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is a stand-out event that happens right at the start of Aquarius season, so it might just throw you for a loop either way. But whatever happens, with a little help from your friends, you’ll bounce back!

You’re just as individualistic as Aquarius, without a doubt—no shade, just facts. During this season, open your mind to others’ views and flesh out your perception of the big picture, not just what’s in front of you. The input of others provides perspective that allows you to rework your plans for the future and have a better idea of yourself and how you stand out in the crowd.
Use the eccentric sensibilities of your fellow fixed sign to get into some upwards mobility at work! Think outside the box (although you tend to do the opposite) and discover new ways in which you can work and accomplish your goals. You prefer to do things solo and go your own way, but opening up to your team’s ideas and help gets you far now.
You love to learn, and now that the sun is in a like-minded air sign that’s all about exploring quirky new interests, you’re living! You can really thrive now and find a learning experience with every interaction. Every day can feel like an adventure. If you’re planning to travel at all this month, it promises to be an incredibly memorable excursion!
When it comes to, well, most of your life, you heavily rely on emotions and feel things very strongly! Well, Aquarius is the least sensitive sign in the zodiac, so you struggle when you rely too strongly on your intuition or try to deeply connect with others right now. Aquarius season turns you on your head and helps you rediscover how you connect with others–are you only bonding over heavy talks about your feelings? If so, now’s the time to rework some of that. The social AF vibes of this month might help you get out of your shell, though!
Aquarius is your opposite sign, so things might feel shaky at first during this time of year. You love to be the star of the show, but it’s Aquarius season, baby, so it’s all about groups, friends, and teamwork. For your sign, the biggest focus is actually your one-on-one relationships now, and what you do to support the other person. By observing who you spend the most time with and how you fit in with them, you can discover a lot about yourself. New relationships start off on the right foot now and already existing relationships become much stronger.
You had a breeze during Cap season (compared to the other signs, at least) but this Aquarius season, you better work! The part of your chart being activated is associated with responsibilities, work, service, and also health and wellbeing. Whether you’re clocking in more hours at the office (which will pay off, BTW!) or starting a new exercise routine, Aquarius season promises to make you sweat!
Love is in the air… sort of. Your chart’s zone of romance, sex, and fun is being activated by Aquarius season, but Aquarius is the sign of platonic friendships—maybe this is the source of your non-committal stereotype? You can have a lot of fun flirting and playing around now, enjoying all-time-high levels of energy and creativity. You’re typically motivated by teamwork and relationships, so you can absolutely thrive this time of year given how social it is.
Everyone else is out and about socializing and partying, but you might feel more inclined to stay in. You’re a water sign—emotional AF—and Aquarius is an air sign with a stereotype of being detached and even emotionless. You typically form tight, intimate bonds with others, but the relationships favored now, although friendly, are usually superficial. Get in touch with your roots, your family, and the connections you have that form your home base. These are the connections that matter to you most, and by strengthening them, you’re strengthening the foundation of the rest of your life!
Capricorn season was hectic in the work-related sense, and Aquarius season is equally busy, but in a totally different, way more fun way. This next month is all about new connections, learning, teaching, and going on short trips. Mental activity and communications are at an all-time high. There’s always a get-together to hit up after work, a night out planned every weekend, or another social event that finds its way on your schedule.
You’re the most business-savvy sign, without a doubt, and you always have work on your mind. Try to let loose just a little bit, if you can, because there are tons of opportunities to connect with others and have fun! Even getting to know your co-workers a little better can greatly improve your life. You might find a new best friend, start a new weekly event with your team, or at the very least do some good networking that promises to accelerate your progress towards your next accomplishment.
Happy birthday! This time of year is all about you! You already shine effortlessly because of your dazzling charisma and charming oddities, but the spotlight is really on you now! Everyone’s general mood is aligned with your vibes, and you can flourish in any area of life now. Plenty of opportunities to connect with new friends, talk about your geeky interests, and have a pleasant time in general come your way now.
As a water sign, you’re incredibly emotional. Your sign is the most emotional, in fact, and you, like your fellow water signs, have a difficult time coping with the intellectual, detached vibes of Aquarius season. Now more than ever you might want to swim away and chill alone, in your own little world, because the atmosphere just feels iffy to you now. Take as much time as you need, little fish, and rest, meditate, or work alone if you need to. If you aren’t down with these air-sign vibes, recharge your batteries this month.
