It’s your season, Aquarius! You share your birth sign with stars like Oprah Winfrey, Shakira, Jennifer Aniston, and Harry Styles.
For the sign that celebrates individual differences, the season is full of magical touches. If the serendipitous things happening around you seem like more than coincidences… there’s a good reason for that. 2023 could be the year of blessings designed just for you, but it could also be the year of painfully personal lessons. Will you roll with the punches, or get swept away?
Good news, Aquarius-- we’ve curated your complete guide to being your most vibrant self in the weeks and months ahead. Let’s take a look at what you have in store.
Symbol: Water Bearer
Dates: January 20 - February 18
Ruling Planet: Uranus
Lucky Numbers: 2, 3, 7, 9
Aquarians, you are a fixed air sign, giving you a unique blend of logic and creativity. Unlike your fellow air signs (Gemini and Libra), you have a deeply humanitarian spirit. Far beyond traditional Gemini glib or Libra charm, your out-of-the-box thinking positions you to mastermind large-scale change. Clever and self-sufficient, you are more than content to march to the beat of your own drum.
Symbolized by the water bearer, you are gifted in capturing free-flowing ideas and communicating them to others in a tangible way. You possess a natural curiosity and inclination toward the unknown. You may come across as aloof to some; in reality, you keep your love and loyalty within a trusted circle. Despite your unwillingness to share your emotions with the masses, you easily get along with others in most social situations-- as long as they can keep up with you, that is.
Through Aquarius season and beyond, you can expect exciting new opportunities in 2023. It may even seem like doors are flying open! Train yourself to recognize which opportunities are meant for you, and explore accordingly. The months ahead will be marked by plenty of newness and change.
Aquarius, your inquisitive spirit and affinity for experimentation makes you a valuable asset in the workplace. Expect to take on multiple important projects in the coming months. Your mind is an incredible machine, and with proper rest and balance, you’ll be able to prove you were exactly the person for the job-- to others and yourself. Doing things differently doesn’t mean you’re doing them wrong, and your tendency to challenge the status quo will be rewarded. Just be careful not to step on any toes along the way!
2023 is a great year for free-spirited Aquarius to set out on their next big travel adventure. Make sure it’s in your budget, though! For all your exciting ideas, it’s important to ground them in reality, especially when it comes to finances. Curb the impulsive side of your spending, and focus on your goals. Of course, being responsible doesn’t mean you need to stop having fun; it just means you should be planning for it! Whether you’re saving for your next getaway or your retirement, balance your resources between the present and the future.
Detaching from your emotions doesn’t mean they stop existing, it just means they’re a lot less helpful in your interpersonal relationships. If your loved one is looking for connection, try leaning in instead of bowing out. Avoidance is your usual strategy, especially at the first sign of relational conflict-- but you’d be surprised how many problems you’ll sidestep by facing the situation head-on. Mercury will enter Aquarius on February 11th, facilitating your communication to flow more smoothly. Your friends and family will appreciate it!
Until March 25th, Mars will be in Gemini, representing true love for Aquarians. If you are in a healthy relationship, take the opportunity to enjoy extra quality time together or take things to the next level. For the single Aquarius, a love match may walk into your life at this time. More likely, however, you will embrace deep self-love and inner care. This will actually make you a magnet for the type of love and connection you crave! No matter your relationship status, stand by your identity and values as you navigate romance in all its forms.
Aquarians, your unique perspective on life is a gift to everyone who knows you. Even when being “different” feels exhausting, embrace it. This is your strength and your power. Focus on doing what only you can do, and the world will get what only you can give. Eyes up, Aquarius: this year is just getting started.
