The Sun changes signs today, entering Aquarius during the afternoon. In Aquarius, the Sun’s light falls on the irregular, the unorthodox, and the radical. Look to what lies outside, and you will find what the Water-Bearer blesses. Though the Sun in Aquarius is not without its gifts, it is considered a difficult sign for the Sun, leaving works of a solar nature with little support. The Sun will be in Aquarius until February 19th, when it enters Pisces.
Shortly after the Sun’s ingress into Aquarius, the Moon changes signs, entering Scorpio. Almost immediately, the newly ingressed Sun and Moon square, highlighting the friction between the detached Sun in Aquarius and the emotional intensity of the Moon in Scorpio. This angle between the two marks our entrance into the fourth quarter of the lunar month, and will see a half-moon rise at midnight.
Evening sees the Moon in Scorpio slowly close in on a late night sextile with Mercury, seeding the air with contemplation and conversation.
