New Moon in Aquarius
Aquarius is a fixed, air sign represented by a man carrying a jug of water. These are the waters of enlightenment and purification. While its opposite sign, Leo, is all about the ego or self, Aquarius is all about society or the community. However, that does not mean Aquarius conforms to societal expectations. On the contrary, Aquarius use's its water to cleanse out the old ways of society in order to make room for the new.
As an air sign, Aquarius is mainly concerned with ideas. The element air gives Aquarius a love of freedom, and equality for all, as well as a creative and innovative mind. Meanwhile, the principle of fixity gives it the powers of concentration needed to actually make these changes.
