To the free spirits…

The sudden bursts of genius – real or perceived – are so exciting that they give me strength to deal with Saturn’s restrictions like a reed. And, oh do I have Saturn on my chart – he’s there for sure – 9 aspects to be exact!  

Ironically, Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius – Mr Eccentricity. Well, he carries his water (water bearer), instead of living in it – that’s odd. Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius, energises eccentricity, originality and individuality in us.

My Aquarius is on the cusp of the 9th. The 9th house is concerned with higher education, philosophy, religion, culture, long distance travel, law, writing, publishing. In my house of creativity (the 5th), Uranus sits conjunct the Moon – which explains why I relate to this quote. says:

Aquarius is the 3rd Air sign – 4th Fixed sign – Masculine. Is in analogy with Uranus – his ruler, Saturn, and the 11th House.

Aquarius governs the ankles and the legs.

His colour is navy blue or indigo.

His stone is the sapphire.

His day is Saturday.

His professions are astrologer, high technologies, scientist, astronaut, psychiatrist, actor, electrician…

Some countries traditionally associated with Aquarius: Russia, Sweden, Poland, Israel, Iran, Abyssinia. 

Cities: Moscow, Salzburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Saint Petersburg.

Animals: long distance big birds such as the albatross.

Food: citrus fruits, apples, limes, dried fruits and easily preserved food.

Herbs and aromatics: peppers, hot red peppers, star-fruits, and generally herbs that are spicy or with an unusual flavour.

Flowers and plants: orchids, dancing ladies, polygonatum. 

Trees: fruit trees.

Stones, Metals and Salts: aquamarines, aluminium, sodium chloride and magnesium phosphate.

Happy Sunday 🌸
