Uranus rules Aquarius, so there's extra resonance in this Sun/Uranus aspect (exact on February 9th). Freedom is pronounced, but the ease of the sextile suggests it should feel natural to do your own thing, even if that means you'll be standing slightly apart from everyone else. One step in a different direction will be all it takes to energize you. This is the easy confidence of self-expression, and leads into the February 10th Full Moon eclipse in Leo.
On February 9th, Mercury makes a tense inconjunct to the Mercury-ruled North Node, bringing new information that must be taken into consideration. The path forward needs a slight adjustment. This aspect is part of a larger configuration (a Yod) that covers February 7th to February 10th. Venus in Aries made an inconjunct to the North Node on February 7th, and will sextile Mercury on February 10th. Mercury/Venus is good news, or flirtatious/inspiring words, delivered with a bit of sass. Something sounds risky and intriguing. The inconjuncts mean the North Node is the focal point - find a way to integrate new intel into an existing plan or improvement. You still have to be practical, but practical could use a stimulant. Fresh info means more effective upgrades.
