Aquarius Introduces a Need for Knowledge

...the Universe is urging us to dig deep inside ourselves

There is a possibility that our ideals concerning goodness and decency may indirectly intrude on our ability to express conscious, mature love. If your natal Jupiter is in Aquarius, this may be a trying time as you may have to go over your beliefs with a fine tooth comb. The things that were pleasing to you before may no longer be enough. Not addressing this theme can encumber our unique sense of intimacy with those whom we make contact. Inability to sort this balance between deep, soul level connection and less focused displays of rapport can lead to emotional storms within. Remain flexible in what you learn and how you feel about yourself.

Second decan Aquarians might sense that their need for knowledge increases during this time, mainly if you have Mercury in Aquarius or Aquarius in the third house. This configuration lends itself to communication and more flexibility of thought than the first and third decans. Most natives of this decan are usually good at identifying a problem and then the solution. The Hindu god Siva is an excellent example of an archetype of one that can determine solutions, thereby executing strategy and materializing things from "nothing." However, he does not do so without Shakti or the sky's manifestation of Kali. With today's heaven, there is also an excellent opportunity to probe deeply into the inner workings of our work life or health status, but we must be careful to allow room for allowing ourselves to feel exuberant and play in a child-like fashion whenever needed. 

With this in mind, there is an emphasis on being circumspect in protecting our hearts, thoughts and the physical head and/or face. "Playing" may be hard to do as fears, insecurities, and caution surrounding what makes us happy will crop up and interfere with our sense of grounding and growth. Examples of these concerns are new promising (not necessarily romantic) loves that seem to appear from nowhere and the question of trusting that new person, or money that is to be earned just by being yourself and thinking it may be too good to be true. 

"However she is not a goddess but rather a fierce black tongue,
one of seven belonging to Agni, the god of fire."

With Kali as represented by Moon in Leo, the Universe is urging us to dig deep inside ourselves, tell ourselves the truth, and be brave enough to let go of past hurts. Then we can experience emotions and experiences in the here and now in the most responsible, authentic (even dramatic) way possible, especially with those we love most. At this time most areas of our life will be tested by our ability to love with discernment and nurture generously.  As we continue to exit out of our grand water trine, refreshed by our introspection, we walk away with an upgrade in the ability to nurture, to intuit, and to understand things with effortless clarity. We are taking a breather with our now active air element so that we may enjoy the fire of our passions.
