Aquarians are people with a social conscience. They may be altruistic and/or humanitarian. They might simply be people who try very hard not to hurt others. No matter how an Aquarian approaches their social conscience, you can be sure that he or she will have a strong desire to help people and make the World a better place to live. Aquarians often have progressive ideas and they tend to focus a lot of their energies on improving social institutions. They are contemplative and spend a great deal of time figuring things out. To those born under Aquarius, a new idea is a precious gem whose every facet must be examined and understood.
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac horoscope and its symbol is the Water Bearer. In a sense, Aquarius pours out the old and it’s no accident that the Age of Aquarius comes after the Age of Pisces. The Water Bearer pours the fish out onto dry land where it must learn to live in a completely new way.
Aquarians are also innovative when it comes to money. They are not afraid to try new things and build new sources of income. But, they can be shy and reserved when it comes to love and romance. It might be necessary to pursue an Aquarius and gently break down that reserve over a period of time.
Because Aquarians tend to be “big picture” thinkers, they will have strong ideas about social issues and aren't the least bit shy about correcting social injustice. They’ll stand up for what they think is right and they are often at the forefront of change. However, when it comes to personal “small picture” matters that concern them and one other person, they can be tongue tied and even clumsy.
Yet, when you get passed the reserve, they can be the most dedicated, kind and gentle of lovers. Yet it isn’t always easy to get emotionally close to an Aquarius. If you are an Aquarius, then you're most compatible signs are Libra and Gemini. Like you, Libras and Geminis are great talkers and thinkers. They enjoy hashing over ideas and are just as, or almost as, adventurous as you are.
Aquarius is an air sign, despite its close association with water. The ruling planets of Aquarius are Uranus and Saturn. Uranus was considered the oldest god in ancient Rome and the Roman’s considered Saturn to be the father of many gods. Like a good father figure, Saturn can be quite a taskmaster while Uranus provides the tendency toward visionary ideas and a rebellious spirit. The combination of these two energies can create an odd juxtaposition where the individual can be caring, inventive and generous and yet stern and somewhat cold at the same time.
This is because the altruism of the Aquarian is group oriented. His or her broad mindedness and compassion tend to be lavished on the group or society at large and less on the individual. This doesn’t mean that Aquarians can’t be playful or even flirtatious, once they get to know you. But, they must get to know you first. Then the Aquarian will apply the same inventiveness and willingness to experiment, that he or she applies to the group, to his or her relationship with you.
Aquarians prefer the company of family and friends to that of people that they only slightly know. One of the nice things about Aquarians is that they are rarely jealous. They trust those they love and can be fiercely loyal.
Aquarian’s strongest traits are their ability to see ahead of where most people are looking, their intelligence and their sense of humanity. It is these features that make Aquarius one of the most helpful and supportive signs in the Zodiac. Just as the water bearer brought rain to Babylon and Mesopotamia and caused the flooding of the Nile to renew the land of Egypt, so the modern Aquarian is a benefactor of his or her fellow human beings.
The symbol of the Aquarius horoscope is very old and comes from ancient Babylon where the “Water Bearer” was believed to rule over an area of the sky that was known as The Sea, from where the water poured out during the rainy season. In Egypt, Aquarius was associated with the upper cataracts of the Nile and was believed to cause the yearly flooding that kept Egypt from becoming inhospitable desert. In Mesopotamia, it was believed that Aquarius brought the winter rains.
Aquarius was called Ganymede in Ancient Greece and was believed to be the cupbearer to the gods. According to Greek mythology, it was Zeus who put Ganymede in the sky as a constellation. From there, astrology moved on to the Romans and through Arab civilization back into Europe as the dark ages ended.
Those with an Aquarius sun sign are quite strong and can be persuasive, boosting morale and motivating people around them for anything they do. They are idealistic, refined and frank, but don’t like to argue or fight. Their sense of humor is good.
The Aquarius people neither respect authority nor easily believe others, instead, they prefer to research themselves to believe what others might be telling them. They can be very eccentric and obstinate and prefer to remain away from society, unless they are not adequately anchored with friends and family.
You also thrive on spontaneity and change. Even though you may seem unsentimental and lacking in foresight, this is only due to your soul's urge to make your own decisions and avoid being controlled by problems and people that may hold you back from true unconditional happiness.
Although, as an Aquarius you've got to do things your way, this can sometimes get you into trouble resulting in undesirable repercussions. Horoscope signs and reports can help you make better choices suited to your unique preferences and way of seeing things.
