The Water Bearer: January 19 – February 18

Aquarius embodies the transition from earthy, hardworking Capricorn to mystical, dreamy Pisces: forward-thinking and idealistic, Aquarians are drawn to unconventional, creative solutions. Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer, but you’ll notice that in most depictions the water bearer is spilling the contents of their urn. Aquarius urges us to play an active part in washing away our preconceived notions, and approach problems and experiences with an innovative viewpoint.


Amethyst is a stone of protection and wisdom, so it can be particularly useful during Aquarius season. It can be easy to get run over by Aquarius’s transformative energy — Amethyst helps to harness it with mindfulness and purpose, and supports us when the changes we need are scary or painful!


With its shimmering internal glow, labradorite has long been considered a talisman for communing with the spirit world, realms beyond what logic can comprehend. Since Aquarius tends towards heady idealism, use labradorite to tap into your subconscious and connect with your inner self.
