Uranus (Uranus is the plant of change, disruption, the unconventional, and the unexpected. It rules invention, aerodynamics, and modern science)
The Water Bearer: Dispensing a gift that flows freely and equally to all; representing creation and the giving of life. The water that the Water Bearer pours out symbolizes truth, which you freely give out to the world.
The circulatory system, shins and ankles: Aquarius natives are prone toward ankle sprains and breaks; also varicose veins and hardening of the arteries.
Aquarians are innovative, unconventional, and sometimes eccentric, and are therefore often targets for attach by narrow-minded people. Aquarians also have a tendency to get into unusual situations and take up with oddball individuals.
Aquarius is the sign of the future, of the visionary, some say of astrology itself. Aquarians are unorthodox, original people who are sort of wacky, witty mad-caps. They refuse to follow the crowd and go their own way. Aquarians like to be different. They not only march to a different drummer, but make up new music as they go along.
Aquarians possess cheerfulness and determination and strive for freedom and independence. They embrace change. For them that is the only way to progress. Aquarians can become technological innovators, political reforms, and even revolutionaries.
Intellectual independence is their most marked characteristic. Their inflexibility shows up when others least expect it. They refuse to compromise or give an inch. Aquarians are a strange mix of an avant-garde thinker whose opinions are written in stone. They cheerfully ignore what others think and strike off new paths, unbound by precedent, because there are so many more exciting things for them to discover that way. They think boredom is a communicable disease and take every opportunity to avoid it.
Aquarians love intense discussion and debate and are generous, open-minded and tolerant. They can, however, allow their ideals and dreams to get the better of their sense of reality, thereby inviting a rude awakening when hard, cold facts interfere with the accomplishment of what they hope to achieve.
They have to accept that their thirst for knowledge and continual hungering after the new may alienate or even drive away some partners. Partners do not always have an easy time of it with Aquarians, since their restless explorations can be an impediment to closeness and devotion between people.
Their character is a system of paradoxes. They enjoy being with people but are content to be alone. They like to travel but love relaxing at home. They are friendly and outgoing but also detached and reserved. They have both a scientific and an artist turn of mind. In career, Aquarians often are involved in two distinct areas of work.
Their astrological symbol is the Water Bearer and often Aquarius is mistaken for a water sign. The “water” being poured out stands for truth. Aquarians are truth-tellers. They give out opinions and observations. They dispense wisdom. They are a seeker of knowledge, rational, open-minded, and gifted with a breadth of vision. Chock full of information, Aquarians still search for more. They always want to know what lies on the other side of the mountain.
Aquarians can be objective in judgment because they don’t let emotion get in the way. This appears to give them the ability to stand outside oneself, to rise above ordinary human frailty. Their built-in distrust of emotion compels them to struggle against its chains, and this may become a source of inner conflict.
Aquarians have a lot of ego invested in their opinions. When others disagree, they take this as an attack on their personhood. Their fixity turns into willfulness and rebelliousness for the sake of being a rebel. They deliberately refuse to recognize that their idea isn’t working in the real world of their relationships or career and they sabotage themselves by insisting on their way even if their way proves to be unfeasible.
Aquarians are very people-oriented, addicted to the study of human beings and an inveterate people-watcher. Outgoing and amiable, they attract friends wherever they go. They have a talent for making people laugh with a pithy phrase that sums up a situation, though those who tangle with them discover how their sharp verbal skills can deflate pomposity and pretension. Aquarians possess a true common touch, yet never lose their own strong individuality.
Their gift is for dealing with all kinds of personalities from every walk of life, no matter what their station or status. Aquarians never put on airs, nor are you cowed by anyone’s wealth or position. We’re all related, they believe, because we’re all human beings. The nicest part is that they do not judge. They willingly grant to others what they consider an inalienable right: the freedom to be unique. For an Aquarian, the ultimate liberation is simply the freedom to be oneself.
They are humanitarians, concerned with the welfare of the world, but do not get deeply involved in intimate relationships. There is always a certain distant quality to them, a detachment or aloofness of spirit. Beneath their detached, seemingly unemotional exterior beats a stubbornly loyal heart. No one is a truer, finer friend than Aquarius. Completely free of malice, they’ll do anything to be helpful. Yet they’ll never let the other person become dependent on them. Their affection comes with no strings attached.
As an idealist they would like to see that everybody is happy, and their ambition is to do something important and meaningful. This is the astrological sign of hopes and wishes, and Aquarians are the kind who follows a dream. An Aquarian will hatch up a grandiose scheme for improving the way things are, but their main interest is in creating the idea, not translating it into action through work. Hard work doesn’t interest them. They are creative, imaginative, endlessly willing to experiment, but the drudgery of detail and the minutiae of management is not their style.
Sometimes they will be argumentative not because they feel deeply, but simply because they enjoy the intellectual exercise. Aquarians are quickly bored and take delight in verbally provoking anyone considered stodgy and dull.
Nevertheless, Aquarians are among the kindest people in the world. Easygoing, reasonable, slow to take offense, never mean-hearted, they believe in “live and let live”. Honest, helpful, altruistic, and best of all never boring, they can change anyone’s life for the better just by becoming part of it.
Love and Relationships
Their greatest obstacle is their fear of rejection. Aquarius would rather write down their feelings than express them face to face. Unless they can overcome this fear, their love life be sad. Even when they do succeed in finding the right mate, they must verbalize their feelings more often. Aquarians feel their love, but they express it in other ways, such as buying gifts. Without those key words, however, their efforts are lost.
The good news is that finding their mate is easier when they know who to look for, and in their case that would be Gemini or Libra. The former loves variety and unpredictability as much as Aquarius does, and can understand their conflicting character. The latter will be just as physically attracted to them as they are to him or her, since both are blessed with great beauty and a love of it, and this will be harmonious as long as the Libran accepts their irregular need to be alone. Secondarily, Aquarius also gets along well with Leo (there is mutual respect here) and Sagittarius (they'll bond by discussing the finer points of life and the world's problems, long into the night, time after time).
It's best to avoid partnerships with Taurus (who cannot tolerate their unpredictability), Cancer (too homebound and stable for their complex fancies), and Virgo (Aquarius cannot tolerate their need for order).
