The Water Bearer has many
relationships -- the real prize, though, is in finding that perfect one.
Aquarians love to give pleasure, in keeping with their altruistic and
philanthropic spirit. They also tend to seek agreement in their friendly
and harmonious way, a real boon in the give and take of partnership.
A progressive nonconformist is a blessing to
the Water Bearer, and if they can give them the space they crave, even better.
The key to real passion for Aquarians, however, is in
connecting with that lover who can make vulnerability safe for them. Aquarians
are so often busy caring for the masses that they forget about themselves!
A lover who can help the Water Bearer
get in touch with their innermost feelings and teach them to put the analyzing
aside will tap into a torrent of emotion waiting to be released.
The ideal Aquarius soulmate is an Einstein with lots of soul.
Sociable Aquarius rules the House of Friends, which means that many a
courtship will begin in a group setting.
Once the Water Bearer zeroes in on a target, though, an offbeat and
zany romance is likely to ensue.
Mental gymnastics are only half the fun, since the Aquarian mind also has a
great facility for creative and imaginative play.
Safe to say that a partner who appreciates
Aquarian quirks is the best bet.
Since the Water Bearer will keep some
secrets just that, a lover who can gently draw them out will create a romance
dance that goes on and on and on.
The analytical Aquarian
approaches the game of love slowly, methodically and deliberately.
"Playing" the game of love is fun in and of itself and should not be
While falling in love, the Water Bearer can fill myriad roles for a lover,
thanks to their keen mental energy and boundless commitment to a good
Conversely, a lover who won't play along
will meet an immovable object in righteous Aquarius.
The greatest challenge in love for
the Water Bearer is intimacy, the emotional and empathetic aspect of love.
Without it, love is incomplete,
so those born under this sign must find that space where they can feel and
If that is achieved, love with Aquarius can soar to the stratosphere.
WHAT AQUARIUS NEED
Aquarians often believe that their way is the best way, so it's no
surprise that they'd be interested in a lover who mirrors many of their
own good qualities.
Social interactions and the ability to dazzle the masses for a good cause
are near and dear to the Water Bearer's heart, and a helpmate in these
areas is their just reward.
An open-minded and flexible person, one
willing to explore boundless horizons, will also help them reach new heights.
A lover who exhibits warmth and understanding can fill
a key void in Aquarius' life, and if they also embrace the beauty of sharing,
the relationship could go very far.
The Aquarius lover is unconventional
yet innovative, a charmer who can wow a crowd and draws great strength from the
partner at their side. Their cup runneth over when they are in the company of a
passionate and committed soul. The mental fireworks which will surely ensue are
a sight to behold!
Your most marked characteristic is your
tolerance for people and ideas You are driven by a love of humanity. Your
sincerity, understanding and friendliness ensure harmonious relationships for
you, and help you maintain equilibrium in the face of even the most adverse
circumstances. This sign is considered the most spiritual. Your calmness can,
however, lead to a tendency to daydream. Your idealism may rob you of
decisiveness and the ability to cope practically with the concrete necessities
of life. You are a bit of a doubting Thomas, too, prepared to question
You rebel against authority, preferring to find new ways
of thinking and of action. You have a highly inventive mind and excellent
reasoning faculties. You love nothing better than contesting thorny issues. You
thrive on intellectual stimulation and alternative views. You are quickly bored
by small talk.
Your tolerant and generous outlook allows you to adopt a
supremely optimistic viewpoint. Speedy decisions and rushed activities are
totally antagonistic to your temperament, and you do best when functioning in a
You require a great deal of personal freedom and are fixed
in your pursuit of this. You tend to love people in general, but very rarely let
another get too close. You do not like being possessed, even by those you love
to distraction. Others find you aloof and unreadable at times, a bit vague and
distant. Yet you are exceedingly loyal to your close friends. For these reasons
it takes time for you to adjust to marriage or any close partnership.
Aquarians prefer to work independently and are hard to
boss around, for they will follow their own interests. If given their way, they
can make original contributions which benefit humankind. In matters of health,
Aquarians tend to live on their nerves and need to watch out for hypertension in
later life. A good massage can help stimulate the circulation. Eyestrain is
another problem, especially when using computers to excess.
Aquarians can, in later life, express the personality
traits of their opposite Zodiac sign of Leo. You could become more emphatic
about your deeply held humanitarian beliefs, and try to convert others to them.
Aquarius, the eleventh sign of the
zodiac, is ruled by the planet Uranus and symbolized by the
Water Bearer or Man Pouring Water. True to this symbolism,
Aquarians flow out to the world, imparting their life-giving
refreshment to the thirsty, needing masses. The waters which
they pour out are not those which satisfy physical thirst or
any bodily need, but rather which serve to cleanse men's
souls of the ills of racism, prejudice and greed.
As the conduit of Uranian energy, Aquarian waters bring
refreshment of a finer type, a sustenance of the mind which seeks to elevate
and expand Man's thinking to greater breadth of perspective. Aquarian
consciousness is that universal understanding which acknowledges the whole
of Mankind as one human family, within which each of its members is embraced
as brother or sister. The Aquarian dream of universal brotherhood might be
considered too idealistic or impractical to actually materialize in our
world, but these natives hold onto it nonetheless. As water makes the earth
yield abundantly, so does the Aquarian have the ability to stir men's souls,
wakening the dormant seed into spiritual activity. As the water bearer, he
is the possessor of truths yet unfathomable to the majority of people, and
in this respect he is actually ahead of his time. The urn he wields is the
fount of social idealism, universal understanding and humanitarianism, and
the refreshment he pours forth are the waters of enlightenment, inspiration
and ingenious discovery. These he imparts freely, without reserve, to all
who seek the higher truths and whose hearts are ready to accept them.
You may be reluctant to credit the
Aquarian you know with having such high-minded ideals, but
don't let his appearance or even his behavior, fool you.
Behind that somewhat aloof expression is a deep mind capable
of analyzing the deepest problems and bringing to light some
of life's greatest mysteries. Aquarians quite literally live
for humanity. They have an innate understanding and
appreciation of the many differences in race, culture,
morality and individual personalities within the human
family, but realize that these are superficial trappings
which only tend to blind from recognition the common human
heritage shared by all. Consequently, they do not understand
the barriers of prejudice, racism, religious belief, or
territorialism, which in their estimation only serve as
vehicles for Man's inhumanity to Man. The forces of Uranus,
which constantly vibrate within them, keep their minds
focused on the Aquarian ideals of social harmony, world
peace and brotherhood, and no amount of fame, power or
worldly gain will ever deter them completely from these
As it is natural for them to live
on a slightly higher plane, Aquarians will tend to reflect
this in their physical appearance by projecting a look of
remoteness. This is especially evidenced in the eyes, which
will often be dreamy or other-worldly in appearance. The
eyes, in fact, may convey the peculiar Aquarian trademark of
appearing to not belong to the native or of somehow seeming
to not go along with the rest of the features. Consider how
the crystal-clear blue eyes of Aquarian Paul Newman stand
out strikingly from the rest of his features. His faraway
eyes, full of an undefinable compassion, have long been his
trademark, but would one expect them to go along with his
otherwise rugged features and impulsive manner? Even if
their appearance, behavior or mannerisms do not always show
it, Aquarians' eyes will never fail to convey their true
As for the rest of the features,
the hair is unusual in that it almost always possesses a
peculiar glint or variance of tone, suggesting the play of
sunshine upon it; it will tend to be wavy or curly and often
becomes grey even in youth. The face is usually long and
oval with flat planes, and there is a look of nobility
suggestive of the classic Greek or Roman models. The
forehead is broad, intimating an intellectual nature and the
power of profound thought. The nose is regular, being
neither too long or too short, neither too thin or too
broad, and the way its angles meet precisely at the tip
conveys a look of inquisitiveness. The mouth is of medium
size and regular, with the lips being somewhat thin at the
edges and gradually tending to fullness toward the middle.
The body presents little opportunity for description, being
moderate in every way, and, as is the case with Libra,
everything is well proportioned.
There's a little bit of rebellion
in every Aquarian. Once they find that changing people's
attitudes to a more tolerant, humanitarian perspective is
more of a task than they first realized, these natives may
rebel against the rigidity and stubbornness they find about
them. Their dress or grooming is often unconventional. At a
formal dinner party, they'll show up wearing a plaid jacket,
a loud tie, an unusual hat or tennis shoes, not so much to
get your attention, but to break up the stuffiness of the
affair. Even if the Aquarian should cop to convention and
wear the suit and tie or formal evening gown, the tie,
shirt, shoes, jewelry or hairstyle will probably be an
eye-catching color or a little off-beat. Even the more
sedate February-born you know who normally do wear
conventional dress will put on their subtle display of
rebellion by giving the appearance of being haphazardly
attired or carelessly strewn together. The clothes may be
ill-fitting, too loose, too tight or out of style. The shirt
may not go with the trousers; the tie may be off to one side
or hanging loosely about the neck with open collar. Most
male Aquarians will not feel or look comfortable in a suit
and tie, and female Uranians likewise will not feel
comfortable in a formal dress. They may further show their
break from convention by taking off their shoes, acting in
an off-handed or erratic manner or in general doing things
to raise a few eyebrows among the more conservative of the
As demonstrative as these subtle
forms of rebellion may be, Aquarians never seek to revolt.
Unlike the social activism of Sagittarius or the forcible
displeasure of Aries, they'll never advocate the more
energetic types of dissent which actually seek to overthrow
or change existing conditions or attitudes. Their revolt is
a quiet, almost subconscious sarcasm, and they don't really
believe they'll change anyone's thinking that much. These
natives have learned the wisdom of not struggling against
rigidity of minds if only to encounter more opposition. Part
of the reason they have such an obvious disdain for the way
things are is that they are actually ahead of their time,
and can't understand at times how the rest of the world can
be so far behind in spiritual awareness. They can have
impressions of the future and may themselves exemplify, in
consciousness at least, what the world will be like fifty
years from now. In the meantime, they are content to work
with conditions as they are, quietly and unobtrusively
keeping their on-going crusade against the status quo well
within acceptable confines. Every now and then, they'll
offer glimpses to those less visionary, of a world less
beleaguered by the ills of materialism, racism and
prejudice. Their natural distaste for stuffy or overly
conservative thinking, though, is held in check by a quiet
optimism. They'll revel comfortably in the knowledge that
the subtle promptings of Uranus will inevitably lead Man to
his greater enlightenment.
Many Aquarians will have a strong
scientific bend. They'll be up on all the latest scientific
advancements, fascinated by astronomical discoveries, and
probably well-versed in the various theories of physics,
medicine or any of those sciences which are a direct benefit
to Man. No matter which field is their particular interest,
they can often find immense satisfaction in scientific
experimentation. Most Aquarian children will want chemistry
sets or electronic kits, but it might be well to lend a
watchful eye toward these budding geniuses. Their natural
flair for experimentation can quite often go beyond the
parameters of the set or kit itself, leading to some pretty
spectacular, if not dangerous results. I know of one
Aquarian youngster who literally blew a hole in the roof of
the family garage through one of his "extracurricular"
chemistry experiments; luckily no one was hurt. Behind their
scientific interest, of course, is the Aquarian dream of
making a great scientific discovery which will be of benefit
to Mankind. These natives could never be interested in any
field from a purely intellectual perspective. Aquarians'
humanitarian instinct must always be the prime motivator for
them to be successful or to derive satisfaction from their
A natural offshoot of the Aquarian
interest in electronics is their attraction to
behind-the-scenes careers in radio or television. Mercury
rules communication by wire; Venus rules that of personal
interaction. Wireless communication, however, is typically
Uranian, and the fields of radio and television provide a
comfortable niche for the unique talents of many
Aquarian-ruled. They have a natural affinity for dealing
with anything that involves subtle vibrations or
higher-frequency wave lengths, and these mediums serve as
apt vehicles for their need to relate to society in a larger
way. The Aquarian spirit, typically, is "out there,"
commingling sympathetically with the thoughts and feelings
of the masses, and it is appropriate that these forms of
mass communication hold a particular fascination for them.
Many Uranians are gifted in other forms of 'wireless'
communication such as mental telepathy, psychism or any of
the occult sciences. Almost invariably with these natives
there is an interest in astrology. As a study which is not a
pure science, but which employs many aspects of mind, it is
admirably suited to their temperaments. Whether they are
casual followers, avid enthusiasts, students or
professionals, Aquarians find the 'study of the stars'
irresistible. There are few Uranians who don't know their
birth sign and Ascendant, and you'll often find them
browsing through the astrology section of the local
bookstore or commenting that the reason they're suddenly
forgetful is that the Moon must be in Pisces. Even the most
conservative February-born (although there may be so few
conservative ones as to be considered an astrological
rarity) will regularly check out their horoscopes in the
newspaper's astrology column.
Aquarius is called the sign of
genius and not without cause. The Aquarian is equally at
home on all mental planes whether intellectual, psychic,
creative, analytical or spiritual, neither differentiating
between them nor confusing one with another. He, more than
any other sign, possesses totality of mind. Almost any
mental pursuit is within his grasp. Aquarians understand the
inadequacy of intellect alone to produce work of truly
lasting importance. By the same token, profound spiritual
wisdom or great analytical ability by themselves do not hit
the mark with these natives. It is the combination of all
these aspects of mind which constitute true genius, and
Aquarians, subconsciously at least, understand this. The
outpouring of these natives to humanity, combined with their
scientific bend and fine intellects, can express itself in
tireless commitments to finding the cure to diseases or to
solving one of the many social, economic or spiritual ills
of Mankind. Is it any wonder, then, that over eighty percent
of the people honored in The Hall of Fame have been born
under the influence of Aquarius? The ideals embodied in that
institution parallel exactly the Aquarian spirit.
