Your horoscope for the week ahead: Aquarius season brings positive change
The Sun and a New Moon in the sign of the rebel release powerful energy and insight.
The Sun leads the way for positive change this week by moving into Aquarius on Monday. There's a common misconception that Aquarius is a water sign when, in fact, it's an air sign. It's a mistake easily made since its symbol is the Water Bearer. That, however, is a reference to how Aquarius pours celestial knowledge from the heavens down into to our human experience. It makes complex ideas accessible to everyone.
Aquarius is the sign of the rebel and revolutionary, so you can expect to feel like an outlier in the coming month. The Sun's sharp meeting with Uranus on Thursday will lead up to a powerful New Moon in Aquarius on Friday. It will cause a restless feeling because of the powerful energy that will be released.
This first New Moon in January marks the start of the Lunar New Year of the Rat. In the Chinese zodiac the rat is a symbol of wealth, humour and resourcefulness. So, let's revisit our New Year's resolutions and give them a kick start. Here's your chance to make big changes and expand your boundaries.
