Crystals for Aquarius
January 20th - February 18th
The mid-winter season is the time that represents the Zodiac sign Aquarius. In ancient times, the image we created to depict this sign was the Water Bearer, also known as the "Water Carrier" in Latin. Its glyph looks like two stacked wavy lines that symbolize water being blown by the wind. The Water Bearer is associated with healing and cleansing by washing away the past, leaving you with a new present lifestyle. The water in the vase is said to be "life" itself that Aquarius brings to others. The water is also said to resemble emotions. Aquarius carries the water or pours it out, signifying the exchange of information and feelings.
Aquarius is one of the three air signs. They are often confused as a water sign due to its symbol containing a vase filled with water, its constellation is in the sky region known as the Sea, and its glyph resembles waves.
Air zodiac signs are the thinkers, communicators, and innovators of the zodiacs. They can easily make decisions without emotions clouding their judgment and will approach situations from a logical standpoint. Although, there are times when they are indecisive and stuck in their head. This causes them to have difficulty grounding themselves.
Ruling Planet – Uranus
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun. Its name references the Greek god of the sky, Uranus. The god of the sky and goddess of the earth, Gaea, fell in love and created the universe together. Uranus' story is used to explain how the forces of nature were created and give a reason for the sky and earth being so far apart.
Uranus is associated with independence, innovation, change, and humanitarian efforts. It's the planet of breakthroughs, sudden changes, and shocks. A crisis improves your focus and makes you feel more present.
Aquarius is the tenth-largest constellation and one of the oldest documented. However, it contains no exceptionally bright stars causing it to be somewhat difficult to view with the naked eye. This constellation can be seen during the fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. It is located in the sky region known as the Sea, where you will also find water-related constellations such as Pisces.
The brightest star in the Aquarius constellation is Beta Aquarii. Overall, it contains eleven named stars. Four meteor showers are associated with this constellation: March Aquariids, Eta Aquariids, Delta Aquariids, and Iota Aquariids.
The Aquarius constellation is depicted as a man pouring a stream of water.
Aquarians are independent leaders that will never follow in a crowd. They are overly friendly and sociable but have difficulty making friends. However, once they think a person is worthy of their love and friendship, they will do anything for them. Watch how you treat Aquarians because they do not forgive easily.
You'll find Aquarians to be free-spirited, empathetic, and compassionate. In addition, they have a "go with the flow" mindset, making them easy to talk to. However, they can be temperamental. Aquarians have a strong desire for the truth of all things. In a debate, they are open-minded and try to understand both sides of the argument.
Not only are Aquarians high intellectuals, but they also have a natural affinity for art and music. Moreover, they are hardworking and have a strong desire to get things done. Aquarians don't like to be bored and love mental stimulation. They thrive in situations where they can work in groups, suggest new ideas, and problem-solve with inventions.
The most notable feature Aquarians have is their vision of the future and how they can change the world into a better place. In addition, they are forward-thinking people who have a strong sense of fairness and value freedom. They perceive the world as a place full of possibilities, and they feel compelled to be spontaneous.
