If Your Birthday is Friday, Jan. 24
The Day of the Aloof Icon | Order the Aquarius Astrology Studio | All Other Signs

A New Moon on your birthday reminds you that you are the one in charge of your life, and choosing your direction. Others may try to pull you one way or another, yet they cannot succeed without your consent. Even in challenging situations, you have more choice than might be immediately clear. Be bold in advocating for yourself, and do not hesitate to take up opportunities to aid your personal growth and wellbeing.

Your sign hosts the other major conjunction that bookends this year: Jupiter conjunct Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius. That event is exact on Dec. 21, 2020. Before we get to that stunning conjunction, Saturn enters your sign on March 21. So you’ll have much of this year to get busy discovering Saturn’s gifts — which can be considerable.
Your 2020-21 Aquarius Astrology Studio is now available for instant access. The Astrology Studio is a perfect complement to the Respect annual edition, and a great birthday gift for yourself or the Aquarius you love. You may order it here.

Written in the Planets for Friday, Jan. 24, 2020

Today is the Aquarius New Moon, exact at 4:42 pm EST and 9:42 pm GMT (8:42 am in Sydney, where it’s Jan. 25 today). This is the natural “new beginnings” aspect, and any that occur in your life may be spontaneous, as the Sun and Moon are square Uranus, the planet of surprises.

Aquarius is about group experiences, and you may find yourself amidst a new circle of friends. Meeting people is a positive thing, as long as you don’t make up your mind about them before you have an opportunity to observe how they treat you.

There are a number of cautions against moving too quickly when it comes to making commitments. This is not about clinging to the past, but rather slowing down a little and contemplating your situation, both inner and outer. This is especially true where one-to-one sexual and romantic connections are concerned.

The pattern involves Venus, Mars and Neptune in a kind of tangle, which is making it both necessary and difficult for all parties involved to be honest with themselves. It may lead to some potential self-destructive decisions.

Therefore, as the next few days unfold, stay sober for all discussions about sex and relationships, and dial back the energy a little. With Neptune in the picture, that might not be possible. Still, pay attention and maybe write a few notes down, so you have an answer if you ask yourself, “What was I thinking?”
