About Your Sign...
Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into
two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively
and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a
cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and
have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually
honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light
which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that
brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without
shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant
of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even
if they do not accept it themselves. They obey the Quaker exhortation to "Be open to
truth, from whatever source it comes," and are prepared to learn from everyone. Both
types are humane, frank, serious minded, genial, refined, sometimes ethereal, and
idealistic, though this last quality is tempered with a sensible practicality. They are
quick, active and persevering without being self-assertive, and express themselves with
reason, moderation and sometimes, a dry humor.
They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Many are strongly
imaginative and psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to
begin, is much anticipated by psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a
great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous
in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower existence where they meditate on
abstractions that bear little relevance to life. On the other hand it can help the many
who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the universal
recognition of the brotherhood of man, and to embark on scientific research to fulfill
their philanthropic ideals of benefiting mankind. When some cause or work of this nature
inspires them, they are capable of such devotion to it that they may drive themselves to
the point of exhaustion and even risk injuring their health.
Both types need to retire from the world at times and to become temporary loners. They
appreciate opportunities for meditation or, if they are religious, of retreats. Even in
company they are fiercely independent, refusing to follow the crowd. They dislike
interference by others, however helpfully intended, and will accept it only on their own
terms. Normally they have good taste in drama, music and art, and are also gifted in the
arts, especially drama.
In spite of the often intensely magnetic, forthcoming and open personality of the more
extrovert kind of Aquarian, and of their desire to help humanity, neither type makes
friends easily. They sometimes appear to condescend to others and take too little trouble
to cultivate the acquaintance of people who do not particularly appeal to them. They do
not give themselves easily - perhaps their judgment of human nature is too good for that -
and are sometimes accounted cold. But once they decide that someone is worthy of their
friendship or love, they can exert an almost hypnotic and irresistible mental attraction
on them and will themselves become tenacious friends or lovers, ready to sacrifice
everything for their partners and be faithful to them for life. However, they are
sometimes disappointed emotionally because their own high personal ideals cause them to
demand more of others than is reasonable. And if they are deceived their anger is
terrible. If disillusioned, they do not forgive.
Aquarians work best in group projects, provided that they are recognized as having a
leading part in them. They have a feeling of unity with nature and a desire for knowledge
and truth that makes them admirable scientists, especially astronomers and natural
historians. They may excel in photography, radiography, electronics - anything connected
with the electrical and radio industries - aviation and everything technical. On the arts
and humanities side their progressive tendencies can be expressed in writing, especially
poetry, and broadcasting, or as welfare workers and teachers. Some have gifts as
entertainers and make good character actors (having an ability to mimic) and musicians.
The more psychic among them possess healing gifts, especially in curing the mentally sick.
Among the faults to which they are liable are fanatical eccentricity, wayward egotism,
excessive detachment and an inclination to retreat from life and society, and a tendency
to be extremely dogmatic in their opinions. Aquarians can be a threat to all they survey
or a great boon for humanity in general. Circumstances - for example, continuous
opposition to a cause they hold dear - may cause the atrophy of the openness of mind that
is one of the Aquarian's most attractive traits. They may express a lack of integrity in
broken promises, secretiveness or cunning. Simmering anger and resentment, rudeness or,
worse, a tense, threatening silence which may suddenly burst out in eruptions of extreme
temper, these are all part of the negative side of the Aquarian. This can also reveal
itself in a sustained hatred for enemies that is capable of enlarging itself into a
misanthropy toward the whole of mankind.
Possible Health Concerns...
As Aquarius is said to govern the legs
from knees to ankles and the circulation of blood, its natives are susceptible to ailments
particularly in the legs and ankles, such as cramps, and are also liable to spasmodic and
nervous complaints, as well as wind,
catarrh, diarrhea, dropsy, goiter and delirium tremens - so that the avoidance of alcohol
is important for those Aquarians who have a taste for it.
