A sunny day with a few clouds and an illustration of the water jug of Aquarius

The Sun’s annual pace in the zodiac creates the seasons and influences our relationships. The Sun moves from sign to sign and our outlook changes accordingly. Every year, the Sun spends about a month in each sign of the zodiac and while it is there, we can all benefit from the energy of that sign. The Sun rules the human ego and when it is in a particular sign, the things in life that zodiac sign emphasizes gets filtered into everyday existence at a regular pace. You cannot ignore that which is in the air. If you can understand the energy that will be out there, though, you can make it work for you.

The Sun moves into the zodiac sign of Aquarius on Thursday, January 20 and will be there until Friday, February 18. Aquarius is the zodiac sign of the Water-bearer. The ancients understood that rich or poor, interesting or average, stylish or dull, certain things united us all. Just as the water-bearer ensured all would have a fresh drink, so to does the sign of Aquarius unite groups of people with disparate interests into one common goal. While the Sun is in this sign, everyone works well together when a common goal is revealed. When there are many choices available, though, Aquarian nature spills through the Sun’s ego filter with a vengeance best summed up in the old saying: “Too many cooks in the kitchen.” Understanding group dynamics is paramount to making the most out of the four weeks ahead. You must be aware at all times of your role in leading, following or just getting out of the way. When it comes to quality time with a lover, be wary of investing a lot of time, energy or money on being alone. Group outings with a sweetheart are an excellent idea, but alone time will manage to never really be filled with quality togetherness, as you would wish.
