Aquarius can seem like a dichotomy, ruled by 2 planets – freedom loving Uranus and restricting Saturn.
As an air sign ruled by Uranus, Aquarius likes an open mind, freedom of thought, enjoys communication, interesting ideas and is social and altruistic. Aquarius is humanitarian and likes to expand consciousness in social circles and groups.
Aquarius is also co-ruled by Saturn which has a more restricting, stubborn aspect and likes the confines of their own quirky bubble. With the opposing types of influences of Uranus and Saturn, Aquarius can seem aloof and distant in thought and self reflection on their own goals, the bigger ideas of life and the future.
A New Moon in Aquarius can indicate overcoming current limitations and new breakthroughs in technology and communications are also possible. We could see more consideration about social media, bots, and artificial intelligence with this Aquarian focus now.
