The Waterbearer flows across the skies from the 15th of February till the 15th of March. All for one, and one for all! Duality is expressed in Aquarius by both the female water bearer, her jug, and the water flowing from without it.
Most of the Wise regard this as the Age of Aquarius right now, as a resurrection from the depths of the past.
Saturn, the most Serious and stalwert of the planets, the last in the natural order, has premiern rulership of Aquarius; and it is a serious mistake to blithely disregard this rulership in the light of the discovery of Uranus and it's connection to the sign of the Waterbearer. Bright Uranus the Awakeners brings a strong push outward, a new kind of light, but the native Aquarian has just as much a need for structure and organization in the core of his nature which is in danger of overbalancing by the corulership. Dual rulership is a difficult task for even the most advanced soul, and this one is a dilly.
The Star embodies the sign of Aquarius in card form in the Sacred Tarot. The Star in this symbolic card demonstrates the plethora of strength, guidance, sustaining grace and message of hope enveloping us on earth, from the heavens.

The Fool encompasses the planetary influence of the sign Aquarius as the planet Uranus, or the Awakener. Many of the wise consider Uranus, just visibleto the naked eye in 2 B.C., to be Christs own star, as spoken of by the Magi. The Fool reminds that life is far beyond our control, yet, is firmly in control of the one who knows every feather of every sparrow ever hatched. Among its many mysteries, The Fool reminds us of the mystery of Faith.
Uranus the Awakener is most at home here in the most free thinking, group conscious sign. In the influence of the Awakener many of the wisest and most prudent recognize the very star of Jesus of Nazareth,the Messiah. In mundane astrology, Uranus has the reputation of being a wild card, impossible to hold, impossible to predict, always challenging the status quo and upsetting every aspect of life at bedrock level. Sounds like the call of a revolutionary, certainly. In His own sign, the Awakener is getting a 'whole lot of shakin' going on' among us on earth.
The sun is weak in Aquarius, leading to some fraility in health unless it is strongly supported by other planets.
Also, darkling Pluto is unable to work his usual magick here because Aquarius tends to be disruptive anyway. These problems need to be reworked and worked around while in this sign, before the issues which they raise within us can be worked on directly.
Neptune is in exaltation here, casting nets of boundlessness!
