Aquarius Season is here, ushering in a time of thinking outside the box and taking bold steps towards the future. This new collection nods to this Air element sign with designs that sway, and gemstones that encourage creative thinking; all the while keeping us grounded and emotionally balanced to take the path less chosen.


Aquarius Season

Symbol: The Water Bearer/Carrier

Planetary Ruler: Saturn

Element: Air

Something big is happening this Aquarius season that will shift the energy for the next 20 years, give or take. On Jan 20th, the Sun and Pluto, both at 29 degrees of Capricorn, will make the leap to 0 degrees Aquarius within hours of each other. While Pluto briefly gave us an Aquarius preview last year before moving retrograde back into Capricorn, this is no longer a sneak peek. And while we have one final retrograde back into Capricorn at the end of the year, we can consider that it’s final bow. The Aquarius show starts now. 

The sign of Aquarius is cutting edge, altruistic, logic before emotions, and focused on the good of the many above the few. This kind of idealism is what the world greatly needs now. And Pluto is a planet of powerful transformation. Together they are taking us somewhere new. It’s about time. Let’s go!

The Aquarian nature stands with the crowd fighting in solidarity for change, but that doesn’t mean they follow the crowd. They are the leaders who aren’t afraid to speak up, call out injustice, and organize groups around movements. They are the social justice warriors of the zodiac. Harness that seasonal energy for good, just as they want you to.

Aquarius has the capacity to examine even the most emotionally charged situations from a logical distance to allow for clarity. Clear heads prevail but remember not to detach too much because empathy is a gift. 

The symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer, so why isn’t it a water sign? Because it is a RULE BREAKER. And the water is more like a purification filter that restores everything it touches. So be like an Aquarius this season and don’t be afraid to defy the norms.
