Aquarius Decan 3 ~ General Meaning

Aquarius decan 3 is ruled by the Moon and Venus. (Libra Triplicity) It brings the confrontation of the old with the new, so this is the most revolutionary and edgy decan of Aquarius. The Sun travels through the goat, the foal, the water-bearer, the swan and the male water-snake from approximately February 9 to 18. This decan marries the swan’s unbridled imagination (and libido) with the transformative spiraling tail of the sea-goat.

Saturn rules both Aquarius and Capricorn and is the last planet one can see with the naked eye, so it has no illusions and is plain speaking. This is Aquarius at its most scientific and skeptical, but at the same time is open to exploring other realms, it just needs to test them out first. This testing is very marked in everything they do. Aquarian decan 3 test limits, push boundaries and most of all test peoples patience!

7 of swordsThe goat’s influence here is at its most capricious and devilish, mainly because of the swan’s poetic influence and the fact it is also ruled by two feminine planets. This means we have a nice balance of masculine, left brain logic and feminine right brain imagination. These are the flirty Aquarians, the ones with a ‘horny’ sex drive and seductive pan pipes since the sea-goat was originally the god Pan. The swan is artistic, the male water-snake is sleazy and the goat loves a good romp, so Aquarius decan 3 is a bohemian hedonist and seducer. This decan works so hard, it believes it has also earned itself the right to play hard too.

Horny Pied Pipers & Judge Mental

Aquarian decan 3 can be skittish and playful like the foal. Some of them, despite their intelligence, can manage to come across as real airheads. I love how the now obsolete constellation of the air balloon used to be positioned here. Others are more like the “Devil-may-care” Fool in the tarot, a wandering troubadour with a dash of Peter Pan thrown in.

The tarot card associated with decan is the seven of swords. This card is about plotting and can be quite sneaky. Successive past lives may have placed the native into such dire circumstances that they may have resort to breaking the law to survive. These folk learned to live by their wits and built up a persona of the charming rogue. “Being resourceful, thinking on your feet and trying to outsmart your opponent or competitor is part and parcel of everyday life and there are times when we all have to try to get into someone’s head to find out what it is that makes them tick…. They spend a long time getting to know their opponent by watching and analyzing their tactics so that they can go out and play a psychological game.” ~ Teachmetarot. This fits with the ‘testing’ tendencies that this decan displays generally.

Sun Aquarius 3

Sadalsuud 23º “Occult interests, psychic, wealth through opposite sex involving litigation, domestic harmony”
Deneb Algedi
 23º “Loss through false friends, high position but final disgrace and ruin, loss of money or property, sickness, worry through children.” “To be respected, to give wisdom. To instill in others a love of knowledge and to build a reputation for being steady and consistent with one’s profession.” [3]

The occult influence is obvious as you can see from the natives below’, however, there is also surprisingly great success in a conventional sense. Unusual in an area of the Sun’s detriment, the mystical side can push these folk up the status ladder. The stars then give some power, but the goat’s fishtail always seems to bring some downfall. I think this would be because of some of these subjects uneasy connection with that difficult occult wisdom. The sun in this decan doesn’t bring an easy life. Abraham Lincoln is a good example. He was known to be a religious skeptic, and in the end, was assassinated for his abolition of slavery. On the other extreme, there is Paris Hilton…totally a slave to the matrix and its baubles. My guess here is that it’s either all or nothing. If you play the game and surrender your sovereignty 100%, you have basically sold your soul to the devil. Once in a position of power, you cannot rebel against your paymaster or you will be brought down. Best keep a low profile with this one and work underground. You can still work to bring down the system, but you have to be very clever about it! Austin Coppock calls this decan ‘The Knot’. He says “On a spiritual level this face represents disenchantment with the fabric of everyday life and its petty terrors. It is a divine discontentment, the same that (the Buddha,) Siddhartha Gautauma felt before he left his uncomfortable home.” [4]

  1. This is very insightful. Thank you. It makes sense now. Pheew.

    If you have a romantic interest in this specific region of the sky, I would like to share a precautionary tale, if anyone’s interested, here we go:

    I recently had the displeasure of spending some real one-on-one time with a male representative of this decan. We met in an exotic corner of the world under a star-lit sky, his occultism (to me at first seemed like an interest in all kinds of spiritual topics and even self-improvement, and that caught me on) but slowly and perhaps way too slowly, I peeled through his layers and somehow non-layers (?) and found myself trapped, basically with this aggressive, imbalanced, self-righteous, delusional, cunning, thievish, paranoid, pretentious, imbalanced, lazy, rude, lying (dishonesty is not exactly an aquarian trademark so this was a new thing for me) and just plain… airballon.. of a man…. He would forget my nationality, my name, while reciting love-poetry, with this holier-than-thou attitude…. He even said at some point that he was the “greatest man on earth”. Man oh man did I have to make an escape-plan.
    What hurt, I guess, was that he was heartless, it was all an act. An act he had perfected. He could be very funny. And then stone cold like Saturn himself.

    Yes, he had some “true” aquarian traits, liked sci-fi, attention (negative) and sudden, shocking details, games, the future, suddenly aloof, and he was Very horny… after 3 in his claws (I can’t reveal the actual geografic details, as he has probably traced my computer…) But I escaped. Nicely. “I hate goodbyes”.

    Home, still with his number in my pocket I knew I would have to gradually detach… And he started messaging me the second I landed… While I am writing this, he has sent me 24 messages. He becomes desperate and tantrum-y like a todler if I stop texting for a few hours. And I say very little. Just “Okay, buisy now, thanks…” and still he will start with a threat (where do you live, you said we would stay more in contact, you … (bad names) and the follow with a love poem.. Like 30-40 messages in a row to himself. Today more than one hundred. And now a note on how we all are One. And namaste.
    So to conclude this I´ve already dragged through the mud:
    Nastiest I have met, and I learned a lot about myself through him of what I am not. Grateful for that. What I guess upset me was that in his case he had no humanitarianism or altruism. Abeit many dark conspiracy-theories. That’s very non- aquarian to lack altruism or least some social consciousness.
    And no empathy, he tried to act like he had it ( I am a pisces decan 3 so I feel this shit) he would straight out laugh at beggers and then laugh at himself, sounding (and looking) like an evil clown for doing it….:D

    I´m sure he will find this comment.

    And sure, not all of the aquas in this decan is like this one but may i tell you, he was darker- than- thou. He had a virgo rising, libra moon, but seemed to cunjure up only the worst traits of virgo, picking on everyone, but unlike virgo who blames themselves, he kept blaming everyone but himself for wrongdoings. And the libra-thing with being possessive and taking things only for himself, his own scales. Very indesicive.

    Sorry for the gut-spill and long haul here you guys. This was recently and I just… I just wow…Needed to write it.
    Thanks for your work and your insight, dear astrologer. I guess some of these star seeds can be carnevorious, huh.

  2. You have a beautiful presentable appearance and are very outspoken which is probably good but I noticed one time how your words dethroned another putting yourself there in place of. Marina enthroning herself with her followers. That was a first strong impression of that idea. I suppose its the right and wrong checkerboard. Affectionately yours.

  3. We are the Spartan revolution Aquarius……..its us that changes it … one else is comming to save us we have been sent to save each other xxx

  4. Hello to you. Is it common to share traits of all 3 decans? I was born on Feb 11 1993. Im typically timid and shy but have grown more social over the years towards women but with little success. Ive always had good grades *except for chemistry* have done wrestling and love martial arts. Im certainly not a hedonist but believe the pursuit of happiness is most important in life and to some that requires pleasure, I do work hard and play hard as for the more invigorating traits of the 3rd decan well….I certainly have the drive, but I actually want a romantic relationship and more over to enjoy seeing the world with her and holding closely most of the time and saving those “drive moments” for special times unless she wants it otherwise. I am a bit stubborn when I set a point but I am open to others points always when I have doubt of my view. I certainly have motivation in fun things and want to progress in them but work, and ideal careers chain me into doubting myself as I want the fun things (game design, youtube video uploads and aircraft maintenance) to be my career. I can be calm but get very frustrated over little things but hold my temper unless it is when people misunderstand others and refuse to listen to reason. I certainly am kind and playful to most everyone and a bit lackadaisical with insults to me or friends who also don’t care but take great pride in defending those who’ve been through traumatic times or are veterans of our great country. Also I would like to know which sign might be more compatible for me for a relationship and will they be accepting of my hobbies such as archery, youtube, videogames, hunting, fishing, martial arts, (edm clubs every now and then) philosophy, history, astronomy, and music (all types except for most rap). And I do take great pride in my country as well as others who stand up for what is right and is not chained by politics, or public controversy and stereotypes. I support the constitution and our god given rights and will fight for them till the day I die. I also believe in protecting those who innocent and am a firm justice holder to those who have committed heinous crimes. But I also acknowledge that there are things that are out of my control and things I can not do unless I have others who stand with me. Overall I just want to see and learn as much that life and people have to offer and try to invoke pleasure of laughter to people to live a happy life. Please let me know what you think and I would immensely appreciate it if you replied. Thank you.

    1. just a quick note,it was ,greta garbo ,who ,vanted to be alone ,not marlene deitrich(don’t know if ive spelt it correclty)

  5. ‘Best keep a low profile with this one and work underground. You can still work to bring down the system, but you have to be very clever about it!’

    Oh how i wish! Its like i don’t what everyone sees. I stopped watching news like when i was 22-23 as i subconciously knew this was all bullshit. I can spot agenda’s in newspapers like miles off!

    I yearn for a revolution! 😀

    However with a SUPER strong saturn, i am more of a lincoln than a hilton or even a guevara
