Our social conscience is awakened now that the Moon is moving through humanitarian Aquarius, and we are reminded that each of us is part of a universal family. We can detach from the intensity of personal emotions just enough to gain a wider perspective since Aquarius is an intellectual air sign. However, we won’t lose ourselves in the great expanse as the Sun aligns with non-conformist Uranus, requiring us to face our true identities.
