a typical air sign, aquarius moons move to the beat of their own drum. you are unique, and are often in your own world, which can confuse others who believe that you are more standoffish than you actually are. take care to not be swayed by the anxieties of others - you do best when surrounded by those who are confident in their own identities so that you can shine like the star that you are. you can be a bit unpredictable, so balance yourself out with more steadfast friends who will help ground you when needed.

the aquarius shawl is bright blue, an eye-catching beauty featuring a beaded bind-off for that extra bit of flare. made up of alternating lace panels and garter rows, this design should be engaging enough for you no matter what mood you’re in.
