A person holds two rings of neon purple lights between their hands.

This is something you cannot miss! We hope you’re ready earthlings, because as of about a week ago, we entered an Aquarius stellium! Jupiter and Saturn both moved into Aquarius mid-December 2020, and Mercury entered Aquarius on January 8th, 2021.

The Sun joins them in Aquarius in a few days on January 19th, and Venus moves into Aquarius on February 1st. The Aquarius stellium lasts until March 15th, so over two full months, and all five of these planets will be in Aquarius at the same time, February 1st to February 15th.

Okay, but what does any of that even mean?

Keep reading. We have all of the details for you and how this is going to affect your Rising sign!

The Stellium in Aquarius 2021

Jupiter and Saturn’s movement into Aquarius just about a month ago signaled some big Aquarius energy, and what does that focus on?

Change!

The natural ruling planet for Aquarius is Uranus, the planet of change, which makes Aquarius the sign of change. Helping us out, Uranus ended it is retrograde, so we can have an easier time managing change with Uranus moving forward.

Mars, the planet of energy and drive, is also now in the same sign as Uranus, Taurus, and the two will hook up next week.

This brings even more energy and drive for us to make change happen right now.

But (and a big but) Mercury will retrograde in Aquarius starting January 30th until February 20th. This might be when we have to focus on removing blocks and dealing with old issues that prevent us from creating the change we want, and then we can do it.

In the middle of that retrograde, we’ll experience a New Moon in Aquarius on February 11th, which can help us focus on the positives. We can take a second chance on a dream, restore hope, and get insights we need for change.

Last year in 2020, we had the Capricorn stellium of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn (that turned out pretty dreadful), but this year, the focus is on the Aquarius 2021 stellium, at least for now. The Capricorn stellium lasted almost the entire year for 2020, but this Aquarius stellium is only for the next couple of months.

Hopefully, that makes it less intense!

What is a Stellium?

A stellium occurs when three or more planets are together in one zodiac sign. It actually used to be that it had to be four, but it’s been adjusted to three in modern times.

There are only 10 planets (including the Sun and Moon, excluding the Earth), so having three planets in one sign means about one-third of the planets are just in one sign.

That is very concentrated energy!

That’s the main meaning of stelliums. It’s a lot of energy and focus in one place, and because there’s so much energy being funneled to one area, we must work to use it properly.

Stelliums can be squandered when they’re not being channeled into anything. Then they become exceptionally frustrating.

But when you do harness the energy and use it productively? They can be insanely potent and powerful!

Aquarius Stelliums in the Birth Chart

If you were born with a stellium in your natal chart, you have this concentrated energy personally in your life. You may find that stellium takes up a lot of your time and attention, and the areas of life it rules are significant for you.

If the stellium in your birth chart is in Aquarius, you may be someone who is always focused on the future, embraces your individuality and independence, and is an innovative, inventive mind. You can be open to change and likely need to change constantly. Otherwise, you get bored easily.

The Aquarius stellium man has to do things his own way and can be quite the rebel at times. He’s likely difficult to box in and full of brilliant, unconventional ideas.

The Aquarius stellium woman can be highly social, loving being around others and in big groups, though getting into dirty emotions may not be her thing. She can be a great humanitarian, though, and have a wider impact.

1st House Aquarius Stellium (Aquarius Rising)

The focus of this Aquarius stellium for you can be on yourself. You may want to make a change in your appearance, in your approach with something, in the way you present yourself, or focus more on self-care.

The 1st house is the house of new beginnings, so this can be an amazing period for you to focus on starting a new project or venture that you give attention to for at least the new few months, if not the next few decades.

2nd House Aquarius Stellium (Capricorn Rising)

The Aquarius stellium brings attention to your values, what you feel is worth something in life, and you may focus on making changes that help you live according to your values.

After the Capricorn stellium last year, it also makes sense for the values you used to have to be no longer valid, and that is what changes for you.

This is also the house of money, so this may be a time when you change the way you manage money, the way you make money, what you spend money on, or how you save.

3rd House Aquarius Stellium (Sagittarius Rising)

Communication and expression can get your attention with this Aquarius stellium. You can change how you communicate and express yourself, so you feel better seen and heard. You may also work on being a better listener and more engaging.

As the house of the mind, this can also be a time when you take time to learn something new, share the knowledge you have, or gather information or advice you need.

Your ideas and short-term plans can get attention too, and you can take advantage of opportunities to take action with the ideas you have, making them real.

4th House Aquarius Stellium (Scorpio Rising)

The Aquarius stellium lights up your home and family sector so that you may give more attention to matters of the home and family. You may want to spend more time at home or with family or make changes with your family relationships or your home itself (maybe move? redecorate? remodel?).

This house is also ruled by the Moon, who governs our emotions, so you may focus on some emotional issues that need to be addressed and strengthen yourself emotionally.

The 4th house is at the very bottom of the chart, so you may also work on starting something from the ground up or improve the foundation of something important.

5th House Aquarius Stellium (Libra Rising)

It’s time to enjoy yourself with the Aquarius stellium activating your house of love and play, so use this time to reconnect with your heart. Make time for fun, take up new hobbies, spend time with those you love, and do what you love most.

Creativity is likely to surge for you, so try to use that in a helpful, productive way. Creative pursuits may lead to big opportunities you don’t even see at the moment.

If you’re in a relationship, you can take it a lot more seriously, and this may be a time when you consider the next step, whatever that may be. If you’re single, you can give more attention to finding love and open yourself up to a variety of suitors.

6th House Aquarius Stellium (Virgo Rising)

The Aquarius stellium hits your house of work, so this may be a time when you spend more time working, getting little tasks and projects out of the way, and basically being super Virgo! Improve your schedule and routine so you can get even more done in less time.

Work opportunities may present themselves, and if you love what you do and have done things right, you can make significant progress, or at least get the idea that’s coming. If you hate what you do, this may be a time when you need to make a change as quickly as possible.

This house also rules health, so this would be a good time to make changes that improve your health and lifestyle. Little improvements can go a long way.

7th House Aquarius Stellium (Leo Rising)

The house of relationships gets the focus of this Aquarius Stellium for you, and you can make changes in the way you deal with other people in your life or in your relationships themselves. New people may come into your life, and others may have quick exits.

You may want to be more of who you really are in your relationships and can prefer the company of people who give you the space to do just that. You can be attracted to people who are unique and embrace that.

This can also be a time to improve balance in your life and bring in some peace.

8th House Aquarius Stellium (Cancer Rising)

The Aquarius stellium brings focus on transformations, so change for you may not be quick or fleeting right now. You can focus on changes that will transform entire blocks of your life, if not your entire life, and this can be intense but ultimately rewarding when done.

You can come up with solutions to problems more quickly, which can help you feel more independent.

Tackling issues that have prevented you from being your true self may also be a focus during this time, and you can get way down deep to the root of the problem.

9th House Aquarius Stellium (Gemini Rising)

The 9th house rules expansion, so the Aquarius stellium may bring changes that allow you to expand your life in some way or have new experiences for learning and growth. Or it can also be reversed, and you may expand in ways that help you make changes you need.

You can be extra independent during this time and comfortable doing things your own way. You may want more space when you’re making changes or thinking about the future.

The 9th house also governs beliefs, so you may change the beliefs you have to be more in tune with who you are now.

10th House Aquarius Stellium (Taurus Rising)

This is the goals and life path house so that the Aquarius stellium can bring extra focus on your goals and direction. You can make changes with the goals you’re working on or how you’re approaching them, or make changes with your direction, wanting to try something completely different.

You can experience sudden, unexpected progress with the goals you’re working on or sudden and unexpected recognition and attention for work you’ve done. The public eye might find you, and it can seem out of the left-field, but deserving.

11th House Aquarius Stellium (Aries Rising)

This can be a big period for change for you with the Aquarius stellium, and you may focus on making big changes that help you get on the right path to achieving your dreams or creating the future you ultimately want someday. You can take a very long view right now.

This house rules your friends and groups to experience changes in your friendships or with the groups you belong to.

You may also decide you want to have a larger impact on the world and be more charitable or humanitarian.

12th House Aquarius Stellium (Pisces Rising)

The Aquarius stellium comes to you in the house of the hidden, so you can make changes in your life quietly, when no one is watching, and when the pressure is off. It may not seem obvious on the outside, but once all done, it may seem huge.

You can also work on change well in the background, or helping someone else to create change. You’re just not looking for the credit or the spotlight.

You can become much more intuitive, and you may gain sudden subconscious insights. You might change some spiritual beliefs or practices or take up some new ones that are on the unconventional side.

Use the Energy of the Aquarius Stellium!

So there are your Aquarius stellium horoscopes! Remember that the energy for this Aquarius stellium is strong at the moment thanks to Mars connecting with Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, next week, and we can get a running start.

Mercury will retrograde in this sign starting January 30th, and this may be a time to slow down a little and be smarter with choices. The New Moon in Aquarius on February 11th helps shine a light where needed, improve optimism and hope, and brings second chances.

The Aquarius stellium lasts until March 15th, so we have a good chunk of time to work with this energy.

Don’t miss it!
