Just a sidenote on those Aquarius conjunctions as Saturn goes direct in Virgo...
I think it's helpful to recall that Aquarius was traditionally ruled by Saturn. It is currently ruled by Uranus, but I think the traditional rulership adds a necessary layer of understanding.
This is actually more along the lines of how I experience Aquarius. The responsibility (Saturn) that comes with freedom (Uranus).
This also brings into play the Saturn-Uranus oppositions we're experiencing in Virgo-Pisces.
