Aquarius the water-bearer – This is an air sign and not a water sign as many seem to think. He is actually pouring out ideas, but many artists depict this as flowing water.
Aquarians are the humanitarians of the zodiac. They are independent, friendly, original, inventive, reforming, faithful, loyal, idealistic, and very intelligent. They are also unpredictable, eccentric, rebellious, contrary, unconventional, and very fixed in their opinions. They are sympathetic, yet a bit distant needing to remain personally detached. They make great sacrifices for their personal independence. These are also the ones who like to be involved in “causes:. They will always be an original and somewhat unconventional, and usually don’t care what others think of them.
They can be modern in outlook, yet stubborn and fixed in their opinions and are not easy to persuade that they might be wrong. The Aquarian has an aloof manner that is fascinating and dynamic. They are intelligent and rational and may be broad-minded or perhaps just indifferent. They have a scientific mind and approach problems analytically. Never allow an Aquarian to feel trapped. They must retain a degree of independence or they become very restless. Many Aquarians enjoy living alone, so they are able to feel totally free. However, a good Aquarian marriage is extremely stable and you can expect loyalty and faithfulness.
A dull routine will bore an Aquarian. They are quite inventive and bring a fresh approach to every task they undertake. In their spare time they enjoy learning to fly or even organizing archaeological digs. The computer was invented for them or maybe by them. Sports such as fencing, golf, and tennis are usually enjoyed and walking is great for them. Excellent careers include – writer, philosopher, astrologer, astronomer, archaeologist, aviator, scientist, radiographer, inventor, electronics, politics, United Nations and Air Force careers. Aquarius has rule over the circulation and they and those with Aquarius strong in their charts such as an Aquarius rising sign frequently suffer from varicose veins and hardening of the arteries. This sign also rules the shins and the ankles and fractures are common. Cold-weather is very hard on them!
How to deal with an Aquarian: Be direct and approach issues from a practical point of view. Understand most of them react through intelligence rather than emotion or instinct (unless they have water signs in their chart)! Never bore an Aquarian, keep them interested and never cause them to feel tied down!
