Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac, and the third of the air signs, making you thinkers and natural observers of human nature. Most Aquarians have a magnetic quality about them, and are attractive with well-defined features. You are friendly, yet at the same time a touch reserved and faraway! Your ruling planet is electric Uranus, who abruptly breaks down the old order in favour of something more progressive. This is the Aquarian‘s way, making changes which you believe will lead to a better world, although your secondary ruler Saturn brings a more serious, pensive side to your nature. Your colours are electric blue and green, also turquoise, and your gem stone is amethyst. Aquarius rules the ankles, so problems in this area could abound, and you are also prone to circulation problems and nervous ailments.
Your symbol is the water carrier. What’s that all about?! Well, in mythology he nourished the people with water, giving them the freedom and creativity of life. Freedom is your watchword, and you seek it at all costs. Extremely independent, you are a natural non-conformist, sometimes rebellious, driven by a desire to be totally unique. For this reason many of you dress in a highly individualistic way which can be considered eccentric or quirky. You press for liberty and equality by constantly pushing existing boundaries, and your desire to break the mould makes you innovative and futuristic in your outlook. In fact you can be so original that you touch on genius, and you love gadgets and science fiction as these things give you a whiff of future worlds. You are also compassionate and concerned about humanity and the world‘s problems. Friendly, sincere and generous, you are tolerant too, and accept people on their own terms. You are kind and have a genuine interest in human behaviour, and intuitive with a clever understanding of people‘s motives. Idealistic, intelligent and very objective, you also have the ability to detach yourself and make logical decisions without emotional involvement.
Despite your urge for change however, your Saturnine influences bring restraint, and there is actually a serious, emotionally cautious person under that green hair. You are also prone to secret self-doubt and worry or nervousness. Often you alternate between reliable and highly erratic behaviour, and people don’t know what‘s coming next! There is also a tendency to be quite dogmatic in your views, and obstinate, insisting everyone else follows your lead. Sometimes you can‘t see that you are denying them the very freedom you are fighting for! You push the boundaries too far at times too, loving to shock with your rebelliousness, and many may see this as disrespectful of convention or excessive radicalism.
Another contradiction in your personality is your need to be around others but at the same time be totally independent. You do need lots of time alone, and as such you aren’t always very good at close personal relationships, there is something detached and aloof about you. You can be distant and quite moody, blowing hot and cold depending on your feelings. You could be lacking in affection or serious commitment too. The need to keep something of yourself back leads some of you to find the middle ground by working with groups or having lots of friends, so you can be with others while still retaining your freedom. Sometimes you are out of touch with reality too, and your ideas so wide-sweeping that they overlook the individual concerns of those involved. You can even be unscrupulous and like all clever people, you need to use your intelligence positively. You can change the world Aquarius, stop worrying about it and go and do it!
