Aquarius Monthly Horoscope (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius.
The water carrier represented by the zodiacal constellation Aquarius is Ganymede, a beautiful Phrygian youth. Ganymede was the son of Tros, king of Troy (according to Lucian, he was also son of Dardanus). While tending his father’s flocks on Mount Ida, Ganymede was spotted by Jupiter. The king of gods became enamored of the boy and flew down to the mountain in the form of a large bird, whisking Ganymede away to the heavens. Ever since, the boy has served as cupbearer to the gods. Ovid has Orpheus sing the tale:
“The king of the gods was once fired with love for Phrygian Ganymede, and when that happened Jupiter found another shape preferable to his own. Wishing to turn himself into a bird, he none the less scorned to change into any save that which can carry his thunderbolts. Then without delay, beating the air on borrowed pinions, he snatched away the shepherd of Ilium, who even now mixes the winecups, and supplies Jove with nectar, to the annoyance of Juno” (Metamorphoses X 154-160).
Aquarius is a summer constellation in the northern hemisphere, found near Pisces and Cetus. It is especially notable as the radiant for four meteor showers, the largest of which is the Delta Aquarid meteor shower in late July and early August.
Under the tropical zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius typically between January 20 and February 18, while under the Sidereal Zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius from approximately February 15 to March 14, depending on leap year.

Aquarius Monthly Horoscope: October, 2019
Your professional life is filled with incredible possibilities this October! It all begins on the 8th when Venus moves to the top of your chart. You’ll feel validated and definitely noticed by your boss or another VIP connected to your career. Aim for the New Moon on October 27 to initiate any major change you’ve wanted concerning your professional goals. Just remember to be patient because, on October 31, Mercury will turn retrograde in the same part of your chart, making it likely that the plan you start out with will undergo several revisions along the way.
Your love life might take a backseat this month since you’ll be quite distracted with family chaos that comes at you from every turn while you’re trying to take advantage of those professional opportunities. Venus will oppose Uranus, now in your domestic sector, on October 12, and the New Moon on the 27th is also opposite Uranus. Someone in your clan might make things very difficult for you. Another possibility is that someone in your family will introduce you to a new romantic interest that you have no time for this month, but definitely makes your heart beat faster!
