AQUARIUS ENERGIES, CHALLENGES & KEYWORDS
Aquarius is the sign that rules community, humanity and the human condition. It also rules our friends, peers and how we view and experience their influence in our life. Its vantage can be cosmic, global and far reaching. This sign is of primary influence in this New Age of ever increasing global awareness and global community. Aquarius rules how we relate to higher vibrations and energies. It also rules the vision for our lives. Its function is to keep things alive and vibrant by showing us ways to connect to a higher vision and higher vibration. When under a strong Aquarian or Uranian influence, you may feel as though you are getting a "wake-up" call of sorts. This feeling has increased greatly in recent years, and is especially strong at the end of January and during February this year.
During this time of Aquarius, we are all given the opportunity to open our eyes and hearts, and to see reality from a different perspective than we normally do. This could generate a "Great Awakening" of sorts, though it may not be a calm ride. Aquarian energy is not intended to keep things at a status quo. It is meant to awaken you from your slumber, and unconsciousness. Its influence helps keep you out of ruts and old patterns that can desensitize you, keeping you from feeling more alive. So be prepared for your world to get a bit rocked or upset during its time of influence. However, know that it is most likely ushering in a new energy, insights or circumstances that will ultimately create more aliveness and vitality in your life.
Aquarius also rules: Astrology, ESP, the etheric body, computers, the internet, technology, electromagnetic fields & electricity. Any of these areas may get our focus in some way this month. It would be good to plan some events that involve friends and your community, especially if the focus is a concern for the global condition and/or Spiritual in nature. Also, that which is unusual, bizarre and unpredictable may play an important role at this time, as these are often the means by which Aquarian events play out.
CHALLENGES DURING THE TIME OF AQUARIUS
It is important to expect the unexpected and to not get too attached to the status quo during this time. One way to do this is to try to view things with some detachment. However, it is also advised not to go too far in this direction to the point of being indifferent or eccentric. While it is important now to open ourselves to that which is unusual and unique, try not to get pulled into the weird and bizarre just for the sake of being different! To avail yourselves to the higher expressions of this energy, you still need to stay grounded and focused, or you run the risk of getting scattered and uncentered. Also, the nervous system will be under particular stress. Good advice would be to avoid too much stimulation (i.e.: caffeine or excessive time on the computer), get adequate rest and exercise and take extra B vitamins!
WAYS TO WORK WITH AND ENHANCE AQUARIAN ENERGY
Gathering with friends will give you needed support during this accelerated time. Find ways to create or work within your community and/or get involved with humanitarian concerns or causes. Try new behaviors. Do things differently. Seek out and then welcome change. Be bold and daring. Believe in your Vision for your life.
As you open to a greater view of "reality", you may feel as though you are walking between two worlds, or existing in different fields of awareness and reality. You may find that having to deal with everyday life can feel tedious or seem unimportant and even disorienting. You may be sensing something that you'd only dreamed could be real. The impact this can have on how you live could be profound. How do we reconcile this shift of perspectives in our lives? I have found that by placing our attention on Source, in the moment, helps to bring in a greater feeling of alignment with these powerful energies and bridge the discrepancies that can arise in such a dynamic process. It gives us a way to be in both worlds with balance and grace.
It is also important during times of expanded awareness to continue to take care of the mundane and simple tasks of our lives. This helps to keep us grounded and to integrate our new perspective into our lives. That said, it is also a good time to view these tasks with new eyes as this may give you insights to help you "update" your daily regime so that it greater supports your health and well being as time goes on.
If your chart is being particularly affected by these energies, it is important to make a conscious effort to stay grounded. Walking, yoga, journaling and doing simple, even mundane, tasks with mindfulness are all ways to help you stay centered. Getting a reading will tell you how your chart is personally being impacted by these Aquarian energies at this time.

CRYSTALS TO WORK WITH
Rutilated Quartz: Assists us in utilizing and balancing our etheric body. This helps to alleviate anxiety and fears, especially from being over expanded during times of accelerated growth.

Quartz: Excellent for bringing us greater clarity and insight. Use when feeling scattered or frazzled. Clusters are especially good to use now as they help us to feel connected to those in our space while maintaining our own sense of self. Also, double-terminated crystals for go for helping us connect to our Higher Self. They are also excellent to hold during a conversation to help facilitate better understanding between those involved.Simple ways to work with crystals:
