If you’re anything like me, post-holiday cabin fever has started to creep in and I have the itch to go back into the scene. Perfect timing for Aquarius season, which is all about social events and innovation. I love the first couple weeks of January to reset after the hustle bustle of holiday season, but now I’m ready to feel motivated and invigorated again! Aquarius season is wonderful for breaking out of traditional molds and developing something new and innovative. It definitely feels like time for a refresh, and this pretty new square is ushering that in!

If you’re ready to dive into the square, scroll down for the free pattern and color chart.

The vibe for the month no matter what your sign is, from our resident astrologer, Ramona:

Hi Humans, it’s Ramona here with your monthly mini horoscope. Each month I will provide your much-needed vibe check and help you stay inspired for our cosmic journey together. 

Don’t forget to purchase the full Astrology Experience add-on to the KAL where you get added perks like access to the monthly “The Astrologer is IN “ knitting circle and astrology zoom session where we work on our squares, talk astrology and go deeper into the themes happening this month, and give you a safe place to ask all your knitting and astrology questions. 

Welcome to Aquarius season. Our knitting circle will be particularly exciting this month because Aquarius lives for a group hang. Keep building upon what you are creating and just know and be yourself. 

Are you being unapologetically YOU? If there is a place in your life where you are not, take a moment to reflect on ways that you can go closer to the truth. 

Take your project to your next meetup and just show off your unique skills and creation. 

See you next month, 

Xo Ramona
