The Sun resides in this eleventh sign of
the zodiac from 21 January until 19 February every year. The symbol of
Aquarius is the Water Bearer.
- In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and
original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are
frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select.
Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too
radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and
progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as
the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of
operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and
fostering advanced thinking.
- Paradoxically, you're a good team player,
but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced
in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work
very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the
sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your
concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any
one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more
emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be
highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless,
you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of
human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of
- You thrive on change and managing the
unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as
being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride
yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job.
Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You
like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you
enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a
good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit
unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
- Equality, freedom and fairness are all
important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that
all people are created equal and should have the same rights and
opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a
progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes.
Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always
somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't
usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal
- Friendly and sociable, you may have a
wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you.
Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common
ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate
a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because
feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem
distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your
In Aquarius, Mercury produces a mind that
is original, detached, and abstract. Ideas come to you as bursts of
insights. Your mind is hyper-active and going constantly. Thoughts are
rarely organized, rather arriving in flashes and fragments which are
often the seeds of invention and progress. The thought pattern is
scientific and dispassionate.
Your ideas may sometimes be considered very
progressive and some may be well ahead of their time. Your unique approach
will prompt some to label you as being a little crazy or at least
eccentric. You like to do things that are unusual or avant garde just to
shake up the establishment and create controversy. You have no respect for
tradition and little concern for the lessons of the past. You are a pure
progressive. You love to rebel against the system in supporting causes and
ideas that are controversial and revolutionary.
You are very intuitive, and accordingly, an
excellent judge of character. Being very fair-minded, you judge people by
what they seem to know or what they do, rather than who they are or what
position they occupy. You believe strongly in equality and fair play. A
humanitarian, you support ideas and programs that assist those less
fortunate than yourself, and you support the concepts of total social
You're witty and open to a wide range of
ideas, but at times, you become mentally fixed in your opinions and very
stubborn. You are talkative and social, but you often come off as rather
aloof and cerebral. It may be hard for you to find common ground in many
social circles. Nonetheless, you are very verbal and enjoy expressing you
views to anyone who will listen. Writing and speaking both come easily for
- If Venus is in Aquarius in your chart it
gives a romantic side that is cool, calm and detached. In your personal
relationships, you have little regard for what society, your family, or
peers think. Your attitude concerning social standards and morality may
be unusual, and very much out of step with society. You set your own
rules of behavior.
- You have a sparkle in your personality
that usually produces many friends. You are popular and well liked when
you are letting this side of your nature show through. You can be
friendly enough, but emotions are something that you rarely display.
Indeed, you may be very much unaware that friends you are enjoying are
becoming romantically attracted to you. The possibility may just not
enter you mind. Not a romantic, you are so impersonal and aloof. When
the moment calls for romance, you mind may be many miles away.
- Romantic attractions that do occur are
often sudden, and in some way unusual; they may end just as suddenly as
they began. A permanent partner will have to be a friend first and a
lover second. You love your freedom so much that you're ready to run at
the slightest provocation. This elusiveness and a noncommittal attitude
results in late marriages for most with Venus in Aquarius. Any
expression of possessiveness by your partner is not acceptable, as you
demand near absolute freedom. You value your individuality very highly,
and find it hard to allow a mate tell you what to do or how to live. Yet
by the same token, you are willing to respect the independence and
ideals of your partner. In the end then, you can therefore succeed very
nicely in an open and understanding relationship.
- An Aquarius Moon produces reactions which
are progressive, but often erratic. Your friends may consider you
unusual and unpredictable. Your imagination is fertile, and it produces
a lot of creative energy.
You sometimes seem eccentric and
unconventional in your responses to everyday problems. You're very
broad-minded and imaginative, but you're also likely to be somewhat
impractical and perhaps lacking in common sense, or so it may seem.
Actually, you consider all that you do as being on a utilitarian level,
even if many of your ideas are a bit idealistic and outside the
mainstream. You have a universal quality that places you ahead of your
time. An interesting conversationalist, you are a fascinating person, and
a good friend.
It may be that you enjoy a good
confrontation now and then and really don't want things to go too
smoothly. A little on the high-stung side, you don't like things to get to
routine and boring. The quickest way to end a relationship for you is to
have the other person begin to take you for granted and cease to challenge
you in a variety of ways. Stubborn, brusque and willful, you have
difficulties in your relationships due to the insensitive attitude you so
often reflect towards your partner's feelings. Women born with Moon in
Aquarius are very demanding of a relationship that is entirely "equal".
Even during the best of times, you may demand the freedom to come and go
as you please. Possessiveness makes you feel trapped. Casual companions
and relationships are much more comfortable for you because they do not
impose so many demands.
Your Aquarius Moon may make you seem to be
too impersonal or detached for many with whom you come in contact. You are
good at observing and analyzing others, but you may lack a true
understanding of the needs and feelings that other people have. You are
generally friendly to all, but in a rather impersonal, cool, and aloof
way. This position overemphasizes friendliness and humanitarianism, but
often misses the mark in one to one emotional relationships. You may seem
cold because you have difficulty understanding the real emotions of
Moon in Aquarius is apt to have given you a
special concern for humankind. Often, the placement denotes someone who
has very fixed and determined humanitarian instincts, and who participates
in activities directed toward the poor or homeless. You relate well to
humanity, if not always to individuals.
The physical home is not especially
important to you, and you may change your residence often or have rather
unconventional living arrangements. Some may describe your lifestyle as
"bohemian," modern or offbeat.
- In Aquarius, the energies of Mars are
focused on intellectual pursuits, and therefore, mental energies are
highest here. While Mars is focused on theory here, practical energies
are usually found in adequate levels. The physical and emotional sides
may struggle a little when Mars is in Aquarius.
The placement suggests the presence of very
high principles and a modern outlook. You are concerned with the world of
ideas, particularly those of an unconventional or progressive nature. Here
the powers are independent, aggressive and enterprising.
You have good organizing abilities and
calculated direction. You are a very good leader who can meet challenges
with serenity and poise. Aquarius is a fixed sign and you are stubborn
most of the time. If you believe in something, you put the idea forward
with the zeal of an evangelist. You think of yourself as open-minded;
willing to discuss the issues. Yet your discussions often get to be heated
arguments, and you rarely give in to an opposing view. You can never work
well under authoritarian direction, being one who is always out to upset
the establishment. You are an active reformer with little respect for
traditional ways. You can even be contemptuous of tradition unless it is
substantiated with logic. You demand the freedom to speak frankly, and
operate in your way.
Like the many other aspects of your life,
sexually you are intrigued by anything new or unconventional. For you,
variety is the spice of life. Yet somehow you are usually stable and
dependable once you have found a mate.
The negative side of Mars in Aquarius
resides in nonconformity. Indeed, you tend to lecture more than discuss,
and you tend to demand compliance with your agenda. Your way is sometimes
way out of the ordinary. At the same time, your energies are apt to
produce more thought than action. You are the rebellious type, and you can
become very impatient.
- Jupiter is in Aquarius in your chart.
This position suggests that you are one who can accept people at face
value without regard to distinctions of race, creed or class. You are
impartial and democratic in every respect. Your great tolerance and
understanding helps you to succeed in many of your endeavors relating to
people. In handling personnel, you are bound to succeed for you have a
great need to help others. You can approach major projects and problems
with fresh and original ideas. These traits notwithstanding, you don't
tend to seek out responsibility very often. You can be somewhat lacking
in discipline. Disinterest in material matter limits prosperity. You may
sometimes be revolutionary and in these instances you may lack
- Saturn in Aquarius gives strong powers of
concentration. Your thinking is both democratic and scientific. Your
basically conservative attitudes notwithstanding, inventive and original
approaches come easily to you, as well as abstract mathematics and
symbolism. Saturn represents conservative restrictions. So this
placement is a bit paradoxical and confusing. Often, the placement
produces a view of the future that is rather bleak and pessimistic. You
may be inclined to work toward the betterment of some aspect of society
that is of some particular concern. Aquarius is the sign of the future
and of progress.
- You are a good friend, responsible,
impartial and always loyal. Cool and collected, you are level-headed and
stable. Yet you may find it hard to make friends and you probably get
little support from those above you. Pride may make you a social
Many of your peers born during the years when
Uranus was in Aquarius may foster far-reaching changes for the benefit of
society. Persons in this group are likely to introduces ideas and trends
which are inventive, original, and advanced.
