Aquarius Season 2020 Horoscopes: Be Wild
When the days are still long and the calendar is still very much a blank canvas on which we can play and create, mid-winter presents a time not only for spiritual reflection but forward movement. As we forge ahead into a new year and a new decade, the first sun sign change will be from industrious, goal-oriented, tradition-loving, Capricorn, into forward-thinking, eccentric Aquarius.
From mid-January to mid-February, in the spirit of the Water Bearer, our attention turns to thinking outside of the conventional, bolstering our friendships, finding our footing as part of the collective, and collaborating with others.
When Is Aquarius Season?
From January 20 to February 18, the sun moves through the fixed air sign Aquarius, ruler of the eleventh house and the realm of groups, community, platonic relationships, and networking organizations.
Aquarius Season and Characteristics
The air sign is ruled by Uranus, the revolutionary planet associated with originality, inventiveness, rebellion, and sudden change. That’s why Aquarius season kicks off with major personal changes in the form of New Year’s resolutions, and the second half of the month brings celebrations of political trailblazers like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. But in addition to pushes for progress, Aquarius season is all about social merriment as well. After all, as the platonic connection-forging, humanitarian sign of the zodiac, the Water Bearer prioritizes group activities and teamwork, so it’s absolutely a time for hitting up full moon sound baths, post-work happy hours, or Anti-Valentine’s Day parties. (Remember: Aquarius is all about rejecting convention!)
Given that Aquarians are forward-thinking, science-minded, progressive, and a bit quirky, it makes sense that Aquarius season is a time for breaking out of old habits and forging new paths, even going so far as to reinvent yourself if you so choose. It’s a perfect time for getting in touch with your inner hippie wild child, pursuing the intellectual stimulation you crave, bolstering existing platonic bonds and forging new ones—even exploring paths that might feel out there or weird. Thanks to its Uranian-ruled vibes, Aquarius season sets a tone that’s fitting for striking out on your own, infusing your life with a jolt of rebellious energy. Here’s what each sign should focus on to make the most of this social, future-focused season. (Be sure to read your rising sign, too!)

Aries (March 21–April 19)
As an Aries, you’re a natural-born leader—ready to lead the charge into battle at any given time. But while the sun moves through your eleventh house of networking, you’ll be focusing on all the ways you can be even more of a team player to reach your ideal endgame. Working alongside colleagues or friends on a long-term project allows you to develop new skills and strengthen existing ones by putting them to good use for everyone’s benefit. Learning how to balance your instincts to blaze the trail while supporting a collaborative effort can spur personal growth.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The sun’s move through your tenth house of career will have you itching to be noticed by higher-ups or other respected, public figures in your industry. You want recognition for your recent diligent work Taurus, and you’re eager to shine by leading up a presentation or pointing out your accomplishments on an annual review questionnaire. Trust your gut on any of these ambitious instincts. You’ll make it clear you’re willing and capable of stepping into the spotlight, and recognition will come organically.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
While the sun moves through your ninth house of adventure during Aquarius season. Thus, your mundane, everyday routine will appeal even less than usual—believe it or not. Finding a way to broaden your horizons by taking a class that allows you to hone new skills or planning a travel adventure (even a road trip will do!) can go far to satisfying your intense wanderlust. Getting out of your comfort zone can feel fulfilling mentally and emotionally, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Love is in the air, Cancer. While the sun makes its trip through your eighth house of sexual and emotional intimacy, you’ll have even less interest than usual in casual, surface-level connections. Instead, you’ll want to prioritize time with someone with whom you feel you have a soulful bond—or with whom you could develop that kind of relationship. Underlying this craving could be the fact that you feel you’re ready for an emotional transformation and are looking for the type of love or friendship that can support your personal evolution.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
While the sun moves through fellow fixed sign Aquarius, it lights up your seventh house of partnership, turning your focus to one-on-one activities and goals you share with a business partner, dear friend, or lover. Because Leo is a fixed sign like Aquarius, it’s possible your tendencies to get stuck on a definitive approach will be amplified now—which makes it even more of an opportunity to work on compromise. Hearing others and truly being with your S.O. or colleague in the moment instead of forging onto the next, expected move. In turn, you’ll find you’re able to forge even deeper bonds.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Likely, already deep into your game plan for hitting revised, refreshed self-improvement goals. The sun’s turn through your sixth house of wellness and daily routines gives you even more energy, focus, and confidence to make progress on your intentions. You can make the most of this electrified, eccentric Aquarian energy by applying a high-tech, unconventional, or humanitarian twist to your regularly-scheduled, health-conscious programming. So, get creative, Virgo. Organizing a charity spin class or using a new fitness tracker could crank up your results.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
If you’ve been feeling a tinge of post-holiday blues and missing the seasonal festivities, you can look forward to the sun’s trip through your fifth house of romance and self-expression. This transit magnifies your natural Libra flirtatiousness and can help carve out time to enjoy lighthearted, joyful activities with loved ones and your S.O.—or, if you’re single, a potential match. You’ll also be itching to pitch professional ideas that allow you to dig into and explore your artistic impulses. Let your heart lead the way to emotionally fulfilling opportunities.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Thanks to the sun’s move through your fourth house of domesticity, you might feel like hibernating and staying close to home. But this can also be a beautiful opportunity to bond with loved ones Scorpio. It can allow for deep, heartfelt conversations to go on for hours while exploring wintertime traditions such as ice skating. Lean into that part of your soul that cherishes family—which can honor the past whilst making the most of the present.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You can expect to be navigating a flurry of animated brainstorms with colleagues, invitations, and nonstop messages from a wide range of friends while the sun moves through your third house of communication. Being a Sagittarius, you’re joyful, social, and you thrive on all this chatter. But on the other hand, you might also find it’s easy to get burned out from the constant running and ideating. Finding ways to maximize your efficiency (maybe by implementing a new organizational system) while setting boundaries can help you connect with others and make it all manageable—and productive.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Coming off of an especially eventful Capricorn season, you’ve likely zeroed in on key personal goals and a path that feels right to you intuitively. Now, you can use the sun’s move through your second house of income to turn that clarity into cash flow. Know that you can be confident in your appeals to potential clients or higher-ups and own the skills and experience you have to offer. Your enthusiasm and willingness to embrace an unconventional strategy (if possible) is sure to win over anyone at the top.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
While the sun moves through your sign, you can look forward to a burst of confident energy. If you’ve been meaning to take the first steps on a program or project that will allow you to explore and better understand yourself, you’ll get a nudge from the universe now. This can serve as fuel for bolstering your self-image, supporting your self-expression, and ultimately making progress on your wildest ideas. If there was ever a time of year to own your inner rebel and fly your freak flag, it’s your season, Aquarius!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
While the sun is in Aquarius, it makes its annual trip through your twelfth house of spirituality, which is also the house that Pisces rules. This is a time for dreaming, meditating, swimming in the deep end of your most complex emotions and psychology. It can be a fruitful time to tune out any superfluous noise and reflect on the forces that drive you, what’s serving you, and what you might be better off without. All of this self-work can help you get even more clear about what you want to achieve once the sun makes its way through your sign in the month ahead!
