Starcodes January 20, 2023 Heather Roan Robbins

The Sun enters Aquarius today and calls us out of a deeply personal winter cycle — out of that introspective winter’s cave which so many of us have burrowed within, or longed to, over the last few weeks — to begin the season of self-expression and community responsibilities.

Aquarius helps us see the bigger picture. The Aquarian shadow side can make us so aware of everyone around us, their stories and their opinions, that we forget to listen to ourselves. Or the other extreme, lead us to block their opinions so we can let our eccentricity fly. This doesn’t have to be a paradox; we can look for the balance between. This month encourages us to explore how we can both authentically ourselves- which we may have rediscovered in our winter cave- and concurrently become more aware of our responsibilities to our families, teams, and political and global communities.

We could feel some turbulence in the changes. This is the third week in a row where a retrograde planet turns direct, and when a planet does so it stirs things up. First it was Mars, a few days ago Mercury turn direct, and this weekend Uranus turns direct after many months retrograde. All planets now appear to move forward and give us a stellar green light to forge ahead for the next few months. We can finally get somewhere, though where will still be up to us.
