The Sun in Aquarius turns the spotlight on humanitarian efforts and community activities. Mercury (communication), also in the sign of Aquarius, highlights networking, exchange of ideas, conversations and gatherings of like minded individuals. It's the time of year when we are more concerned with the needs of others and more willing to extend ourselves for some collective cause.
The ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. Uranus (the awakener) is currently opposing the Greek goddess Pallas Athenawho was revered as patroness of the arts, healing, and justice. She offered wise counsel to all due to her keen and dynamic perception . She wielded a pen rather than a sword to strategize, plan and settle difficulties. Astrologer, Demetra George wrote about Pallas Athena in Asteroid Goddesses “ she symbolizes the principle of creative intelligence giving birth to thought forms. Through her knowledge of the natural laws of manifestation, she functions as one’s capacity for realization and accomplishment.”
This is important right now primarily when we look at situations that arose around the time of the eclipses last July and August. You may discover a connection to what was transpiring in your life that wasn't based on a realistic plan. What was the justification for making a move or signing a contract that, in retrospect, may not have been the best decision? It’s important to connect the dots now because, as with everything in Astrology, this particular cycle is activating the energy released during that period which is now escalating us to another level of understanding. If resources are involved, especially other people’s money, loan or debt, this can be a quite sobering time!
