This eleventh sign of the zodiac is the sign of the future, the visionary and some say astrology itself. Aquarians are unorthodox, original, wacky, witty madcaps who refuse to follow the crowd and go their own way. You like being different. You not only march to a different drummer, you make your own music as you go along. Intellectual independence is your most marked characteristic.
In the sign of Aquarius the combination of a fixed quality that represents persistence and an air element representing intellect and communication, under the influence of the planet of change (Uranus), creates a personality that is liberal, progressive and yet fixed in opinion. You’re a strange mix of avant-garde thinker whose opinion is written in stone. You cheerfully ignore what others think and strike off on new paths, unbound by precedent because there’s so many more exciting things to discover that way.
Your character is a system of paradoxes. You enjoy being with people but are content to be alone. You like to travel but love relaxing at home. You are friendly and outgoing but also detached and reserved. You have both a scientific and an artistic turn of mind. In career you often are involved in two distinct areas of work. You are a communicator and an idea person. People born under this sign live most intensely in their minds.
The symbol ‘Water barer’ stands for truth. You are a truth teller that give out opinions and observations. You dispense wisdom. You are a seeker of knowledge, rational, open minded and gifted with breadth of vision. Chock full of information you always search for more. You always want to know what lies on the other side of the mountain. You can be objective in judgement for you don’t let emotion get in the way. This gives you the ability to stand outside of yourself and to rise above ordinary human frailty.
You are very people orientated, almost addicted to the study of human beings and an inveterate people watcher. Outgoing and admirable you attract friends wherever you go. You have a talent for making people laugh with a pithy phrase that sums up a situation. You possess a true common touch yet never loose your own individuality. Whomever you meet you remain you - that amusing, inquisitive person who wants to know what makes others tick. The nicest part of you is that you don’t judge. You willingly grant to others what you consider an inalienable right - the freedom to be unique.
