Many astrologers believe this rare cosmic event (Jupiter and Saturn's alignment in Aquarius) ushers in the Age of Aquarius — shifting our focus toward unconventional thinking and humanitarianism for years to come.

Think Outside The Box

Aquarius energy all about taking fresh perspectives and embracing the unique and unconventional aspects of life, so we're all being asked to be more progressive in our thinking and march to the beat of our own drum.

Move Away From Materialism

Jupiter and Saturn spent the past year in the money-focused sign of Capricorn, putting a collective emphasis on financial security. As we shift to the Age of Aquarius, we'll be more interested in friendship and innovation than materialistic matters.

Embrace Your Inner Rebel

Let go of your need to follow all the rules — or at least let yourself question who's making them. Aquarius energy loves to rebel against the status quo, so embrace your uniqueness and don't be afraid to go against the grain.

Get More Socially Active

Humanitarian issues will come to the forefront during the Age of Aquarius thanks to Aquarius' focus on the collective good, inspiring you to speak out about social justice. Don't hold back when it comes to protesting or volunteering for a cause.
