Aquarius Monthly Horoscope for June 2020
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Saturn’s brief foray into your birth sign for the first time in a generation has you in truly unusual territory: as much for what is happening as for what you’re preparing for. There are aspects of yourself you had little concept could change, or that you wanted them to, and that is the very pattern that is being rewritten. At times you may feel like the Wicked Witch of the West getting a bucket of water dumped on her, though it’s not all that bad.
If you do, that’s a measure of your resistance, and your adhesion to what has become uncomfortably crystallized. This has consumed your energy, and has taken a toll on your relationships — the one that you could not explain.
There’s something much better possible, which is embodied by one of the most essentially beautiful placements in astrology, Saturn in Aquarius.
To sum up: when you have substance, you can relax, which means to be flexible. Integrity bends: that’s why skyscrapers stay standing; they move with the wind. A little is all you need, or need to begin with. You will find this comportment to be a relief given all the tumult you’ve been through in these years of Pluto in Capricorn (2008-present), Saturn in Capricorn (2017 through this year) and their meeting on Jan. 12. These represent a seemingly endless sequence of tectonic level shifts.
You have no doubt gone through an inner odyssey, one that a few times you thought might never end. You are now seeing the potential for resolution. This will call forth all of your maturity, your sensitivity, and your willingness to become something and someone not exactly new, but truer to your form: the person you’ve always wanted to be.
Sign Description for Aquarius
(Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Perhaps the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac, we can for sure say that the Aquarius personality values intelligence, ideas and loves a good theory.
Yet progress for its own sake is not what you’re after; Aquarius people are the discriminating embracers of innovation that works. Just to give one not so random example, you’ve probably got your hand on a mouse right now. That was invented by Douglas Engelbart, an Aquarian.
Aquarius has a strange relationship to time, as if you carry around your own time zone. You’re always living in an era of your own (past or present) which is never quite in sync with the present as defined by others. This carries into the often-noted contradiction implied in the sign that is at once associated with constant changes, and is also considered a fixed sign; for you the only constant is change, and you resist that change as much as you invite it.
That’s because most change is pointless, driven by boredom or profit, neither of which are specific turn-ons for you. You’re not against money but you favor people (unlike many who are turned on by money). Like progress, money has a purpose: food, shelter, pleasure, sharing. It has little value for its own sake. Accordingly, you need a career you believe in ardently, and in that career you will excel. People will think it’s because you’re smart; in truth it’s because you do what’s important to you, what you feel belongs on the planet.
Traditionally, Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, a fact that is nearly forgotten today; in modern astrology it’s usually associated with the more wild, unpredictable and revolutionary planet Uranus. In truth, Saturn and Aquarius tell us a lot about one another — which is why Saturn is such a dependable agent for change and why Aquarius is so steadfast in its choices. Yet Uranus brings in three critical elements of Aquarius: your affinity for groups, your inventive spirit, and an ethos of fairness. You’re not afraid to change your mind if something, or someone, makes more sense than your prior ideas.
The Saturn/Uranus paradox embodies the chasm over which you must often stretch your body and your soul. You seek both individuality and group identification, but lean more toward the first, which is a good thing: only an individual can be part of a group. Yours is one of the human signs, and an air sign, represented by a woman holding an urn of water — or a ruler to measure the depth of the Nile. Fill that urn with water, so you have plenty to share.
To understand yourself better, study both of these planets — and their relationship (aspects, affinity by sign, and so on). See the ways in which they tell the same story, and those in which they tell different stories.
