Aquarius is the Sign of the forward-thinking intellectual. Both ruled and fuelled by the Element of Air, Aquarius Season is the time to move forward – both literally and figuratively!
Aquarius rules the legs and calves, so special care and attention to the lower body will ensure that these areas stay strong, and that you don’t suffer from the common Aquarian problem of poor circulation in the lower extremities!
Often mistaken to be a Water Sign (due to its symbol, The Water-Bearer), Aquarius signifies fast-moving Air energy. New ideas that are meant to be shared and that benefit others are the order of the day. In life and in wellness, Aquarius LOVES innovation, invention, and new technology. When planning on what you’ll be focusing on during Aquarius Season, pick a new, up-and-coming fitness program. Bonus points if it involves a new machine or piece of tech!
Yoga & Fitness for Aquarius Season
Ever heard of primal movement exercises, like MovNat? How about that new Peloton bike, or the latest fitness app? Think new, functional, and modern. The overarching Aquarius energy is going to be piquing your curiosity and having you looking for more exciting ways to get your sweat on.
This is the time to really be focusing on your LEGS! Go for walks every day, or take up running. Don’t forget to elevate your feet at the end of the day, too! Yoga poses that will limber up your legs and keep that circulation flowing include:
- Hero Pose
- Low Lunge (all varieties)
- Modified splits (use a block, bolster, or blanket, if needed)
- Dancer Pose
- Head-to-knee Pose
- Cobbler’s Pose
- Legs-up-the-wall Pose
Crystals for Aquarius Season
To stimulate your mind and activate your third eye chakra, meditate with crystals like Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, or Amethyst.
To ground an overactive mind, work with crystals such as Smoky Quartz, Red Jasper, and Petrified Wood.
Essential Oils for Aquarius Season
To soothe aching legs and boost circulation, choose Cypress, a wonderfully soothing anti-inflammatory.
To enhance the Aquarian mind and aid meditation, choose the exotic Neroli.
And finally, if you find that the Aquarian energy is keeping you “up in space”, diffuse and anoint your feet with Vetiver to help keep you firmly on the ground.
Have fun exploring new ways to move, live, and love!
