Aquarius – January 20 – February 18

Ruled by Uranus (Modern) & Saturn (Traditional)

Fixed Air

Key Words: Original, Independent, Unpredictable

Independent, aloof, frequently unpredictable and eccentric characterise our Aquarius friends. They are friendly and can connect with people easily yet remain detached. Personal independence is very important to them and they will make many sacrifices to ensure they can maintain it. Aquarius are the children of the universe and often walk to the beat of a different drummer. Being original in thought they don’t mind going out on a limb to make a point, they don’t mind staying there either! Suffice to say, the more conventional signs struggle with the uniqueness and originality of the Aquarian.

Very much in favour of reform, change and the advancement of the human race, Aquarius can be stubborn and wilful which is expressed in ways that surprise. They can make sudden, unexpected changes to their lives and will move quickly once they make a decision. They dislike for monotony and will often find shorter more efficient ways of doing things! As an aside, this sign likes the idea of working flexible hours as it fits with their sense of freedom. They must feel free otherwise they can become extremely disruptive.

Once Aquarians set their path or choose a cause it will be hard to make them change direction as they are not receptive to being persuaded they are wrong. Aquarius are not unduly concerned with what other people think and will often simply not bother to check in with others to seek out their opinions.

Ruled by Uranus, the awakener, they can experience flashes of genius that build on their very strong intuition. Not expressed positively, insight and intuition can manifest as rebellious, reckless, and tactless behaviour however used positively they can use their ability to connect with the collective unconscious to be the facilitators of constructive societal change.

These folk are intuitive, don’t follow the masses and are not concerned about what other people think. This can be quite refreshing or quite confrontational depending on how you react to having your ideas challenged. Their thinking has an original quality about it and very often they see solutions others may have missed. They also use analysis very well.

Aquarius – The Dark Side

Irresponsible, Cold, Robotic

This free spirit also has a dark side which can be quite perplexing. They can be completely irresponsible, careless and slovenly. Under pressure, they can become quite unpredictable, negative and stubborn.
