Aquarius decan 3 is ruled by the Moon and Venus. 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 8 to 19. This decan marries the swan’s unbridled imagination (and libido) with the transformative spiralling 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 explore other realms, it just needs to test them out first.
Horny Pied Pipers & Judge Mental
This testing is very marked in everything they do. Aquarian decan 3 test limits, push boundaries and most of all test peoples patience! The goats 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.

The “occult” influence is obvious as you can see from the examples below, however there is also surprisingly great success in a conventional sense. Unusual in an area of the Suns detriment. The stars then give some power, but the goats fish tail always seems to bring some downfall. I think this would be because of a 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!
