Somewhere between New Year’s promising resolution lists, post-holiday blues, and shades of red and pink for Valentine’s Day starting to appear everywhere as far as the eye can see resides Aquarius season. Without a doubt, it’s the most confusing time of the year. Are you supposed to be going strong and steady, or let yourself unwind a little? Should you worry about all the things you’re yet to do, or reward yourself for working hard?
The answer is, perhaps, somewhere in the middle. And that’s the thing about Aquarius – trying to find balance while skyrocketing from one extreme to the other, feeling a little out of place yet willing to help and be there for people, and making new and promising plans, all with a bittersweet taste of loneliness. You want to find that golden mean between order and chaos which can be hard for someone so electrifying.
Aquarius is the second to last sign–innovative, progressive, and humanitarians–and always feels like they’re destined for something bigger and better. And they are! Aquarius personifies rebellion, individuality, and technology. It’s often hard to describe an Aquarius because they’re simply too ever-changing and light years ahead of us to know. We are certain, however, that they’re smart, responsible, know how to have fun and how to start a revolution. And that’s exactly the kind of energy you should be channeling this month. Unapologetically embracing all your weirdness, everything that makes you who you are will take you far this season.
So, wear your brightest colors and speak your truth – the time has come. If you’re already feeling this strange mixture of worry, excitement, and hope with some god complex symptoms here and there, congratulations: Aquarius season is out to get you. Worry not, however: we’ve got you. Let’s explore all the items that will combat the stress and maintain your well-being, promote confidence, increase productivity, and make you feel as in your element as it humanly gets.

Barisieur Coffee Brewing Alarm Clock
Rumor has it that Aquarius is a fan of two things: being on time and caffeine. True or false, we may never find out. However, Barisieur’s revolutionary coffee brewing alarm clock (yes, you read that correctly) will significantly improve the quality of your weekday mornings. It brews coffee or tea for you as the alarm goes off, saving both precious time and barely existent energy. It even has a refrigerated compartment for milk – they really thought everything through!

Not to mention, with all the craziness around us at this time of the year, we sometimes risk compromising health in favor of other priorities. This soothing powder by Nature Of Things has all things good for your body: anti-inflammatory turmeric and ginger, relaxing 30 mg of CBD to help you chill out and stay present, and tropical coconut and pineapple flavors for a little hint of summer we’re all craving right now. Just stir with water, drink up and feel healthier almost instantly. Easy, innovative and cool – just what the Aquarius doctor ordered.
Brain Dead Small Animals Long Sleeve T-Shirt
The transition from mild winter into milder spring means it’s officially long sleeve tee season, and we’re excited about it. This one by Brain Dead perfectly captures what it feels like to be inside the mind of an Aquarius, the OG computer head.

Well, are we just being processed now? Ask an Aquarius and you just might get an answer.

adidas Originals by Alexander Wang Puff Trainer
These puff trainers by Alexander Wang for Adidas are everything an Aquarius needs their everyday trainers to be: comfortable, whimsical, and fun to wear.
