Art World Astrology

by T. Cuevas



The intensely transformative energy continues this month with the sun in Aquarius – the sign associated most with rebellion, social upheaval and freedom. And, with three planets in combative Aries this month, a hefty dose of flared up tempers.

At a social level, Aquarius is the desire for freedom, fairness and inclusivity. More than any other sign, Aquarius is connected to the global, not the individual, and is more concerned with the future than the present. This big-picture view allows Aquarians to thrive in the midst of chaos, as long as they think it’s for the purpose of creating a better system that works for the whole.

At a personal level, Aquarius is associated with eccentricity, brilliance and truthfulness. It encourages us to not only embrace our own authenticity and what makes us different, but also to accept others in an equal manner.
Under Aquarius, art is at its best when it’s subversive, controversial and highly unique. Global themes and social issues take priority, as does anything that provokes thought, conversation and change.
