Aquarius Sun Sign - Aquarius CharacteristicsAquarius Sun Sign - Aquarius Characteristics

Aquarius Sun-sign: January 21-February 18

Aquarius is the individualist of the Zodiac. Show two people with this sign prominent in their birth-charts a list of characteristics of the sign, and the only thing they will agree on is the fact that they share none of them. This sign bestows a great need for independence, which very often emerges in the building of a rather special and somewhat different lifestyle.

Aquarius are some of the kindest, most helpful and friendly people of the Zodiac. They have a happy knack of knowing when help is needed and will give it freely without ulterior motives. However, although we may know them extremely well, if we think seriously about it, they are in many ways extremely private people. This could well be because of their need to be independent, and while having the capacity to give much of themselves to others, they do not want to get too emotionally involved or find themselves in a situation which is at all cloying or heavy.

Aquarius and Emotions

Unfortunately it is often the case that a great many people with this sign stressed in their birth-charts have considerable psychological difficulty in relating intensely and in depth to other people. The reason for this is very complex, and does of course vary considerably from individual to individual, but basically it may well come back to the very powerful inherent need for independence. To live with someone, or to marry them, must of necessity mean that considerable independence is relinquished, and when it comes to a total commitment, many Aquarians do not feel they can make what to them is a considerable sacrifice.

But let it be stressed that there are obviously a great many who have Aquarius as Sun, Rising, or Moon sign, yet are settled and fulfilled in their permanent relationship. These will understand my comments, but other planets will have given them support where it is most needed, and the problem has been solved.

Aquarius have great originality and real flair, which can be used in a variety of fields, and should be allowed full expression. They often do well in the so-called glamour professions theatre, television, the beauty trades, or anywhere where their originality can be expressed freely and rewardingly. Many carve successful careers in science, and interestingly it is very often the case that Aquarians are fascinated by the remote past and the equally remote and distant future archaeology and geology at one end of the scale, and space fact and fiction at the other. This too can color the choice of spare-time interests.

Aquarius and the Family

Aquarius make excellent forward-looking parents, and will sympathize with their children when they become involved with the concerns and crazes of their generation. But, surprisingly, Aquarians can be very stubborn and extremely unpredictable, and it is their children, as much as their friends and partners, who will become aware of these particular, and to all intents and purposes, somewhat unexpected traits.

Parents of Aquarius children must respect their tremendous need for independence, and learn to accept it and the fact that while they may appear somewhat zany there is probably more common sense in their personalities than may appear on the surface. Interests that are way out or wild must not be discouraged here is young Aquarius expressing his or her originality.

Aquarius Physical Challenge

The Aquarius body-area is the ankles. These are vulnerable. The circulation is also ruled by Aquarius, and it is necessary to keep it moving well. Skiing is often enjoyed, and is good exercise. Dance, aerobics, and athletics are all excellent.
