Got a radical idea? Aquarius is the sign of the future and even rules sci-fi. It’s the forward-focused mad scientist who envisions a quirky, idealized world—or perhaps one populated by aliens, cyborgs, and a code of radical individualism. Author Ayn Rand was an Aquarius, and her philosophy of objectivism—controversial as it is—champions reason, fighting for liberation, and minimal government meddling (no sloppy sentiment in there). Of course, that can edge into scary Tea Party territory, but that’s why most philosophies are more interesting on paper than in practice.
While your beliefs may not be quite so stark and stripped of emotion, consider what the perfect world would be like if you could create it. What does it look like—and how can you bring a healthy drop of that to your daily life? Maybe it’s to the tune of Burning Man, where every day is a costume party, and people share their talents, goods, and services without exchanging money. You might want to read up on some New Age and shamanic ideas (like the "Hopi Prophecies") or even deepen your knowledge of astrology—all Aquarian themes.
Browse for books or sites about reforming society—notions like a "gift economy." Check out Lewis Hyde’s The Gift or author/blogger Seth Godin’s Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? which takes a stand for art over cold industrialism. Or, head to the otherworldly zone that Aquarius loves and read theories on aliens (no judgment here under this broad-minded moon!), like Bringers of the Dawn: Teachings from the Pleiadians. All you need is a curious, open mind. (For fun ideas about coming together and collaborating, try our Aquarius full moon ritual here.)
