Aquarius Zodiac Sign - Basics:

Element: Air, Quality: Fixed, Rulers: Saturn Uranus.

Characteristic traits

Aquarius has ideas to take humanity out of its restriction to the social order into a wider sense of community. Values freedom and equality, encouraging others to claim what it considers is their due.


Aquarius is attracted to 'isms' - ideological systems of thought that can end up in leaving people just as trapped as before. Ideals become wishful thoughts to which one can escape - 'at least I know what the world ought to be like even if I can't make it that way' (especially if Moon in Aquarius).

A word of advice

Check this out: does your concern for the 'brotherhood of man' arise, at least in part, from a lack of a strong sense of your own individual worth? Watch this especially if you think you are entitled to prior consideration on account of your advanced ideas.


As an Aquarius your ideal mate listens admiringly while you expound your thoughts and won't embarrass you with tears when you keep an ice-cool distance. You may attract a partner who will feel more strongly than you do, and allowing yourself to open up and finding yourself loved for it will do wonders for your self-esteem.

Aquarius Star Sign - a Deeper Look

Aquarius witnesses to our membership of the human race, and to the importance of the creative activity of humanity. Following Capricorn, which emphasises the importance of the proper functioning of society, and the need to be a responsible member thereof, Aquarius may be seen as observing the boundaries and structures that people have made for themselves in order to live satisfactorily with each other, and noticing that people can be trapped therein, disabling them from living a fully human life unfettered by duties and responsibilities.

So Aquarius aims to show how to live within society without being bound by it in such a way as to stifle human creative activity. As an air sign, it does this by having an ideal about how life for humanity ought to be - but like all ideals, it has to deal with reality in terms of what human beings are really like, rather than simply how the mind considers they ought to be like, and this can lead to some painful lessons in life.

Aquarian ideals are rarely experienced in isolation. Aquarius is a socially oriented sign, and Aquarians usually function best with others, with friends or in a community of some kind - some may lose their sense of being individual human beings in the process, even to the extent of leaving themselves little to contribute to the associations they belong to.

Aquarius is co-ruled by Uranus, the first planet to be discovered beyond the boundary of Saturn. Uranus is associated with the Age of Enlightenment, when new ideas were flooding into society, many of which were upsetting at first. When Aquarians are functioning properly they may be a disturbing influence, for they bring people's self-imposed limitations to awareness, offering a more enlightened approach. Other features of their birth charts may show how sensitive they are to people's resistance to the ideals they espouse. Some placements of Mars, for instance, may show a determination to ram one's point of view down someone else's throat, never mind whether or not the other person is ready to receive such ideas! Compatibility in love will of course be an issue here.

One implication of the socially oriented nature of Aquarius is that if you have significant planets in the more personal signs (e.g. Aries or Taurus) in your chart, then you may experience your personal needs as getting in the way of your social conscience. Just remember you are a human being with human needs, and there is no shame in admitting them. Indeed, you must honour them in order to fulfil your destiny, for no amount of enlightenment will appeal to people if there is no place to be simply human, and if they see you ignoring or denying your human needs, your ideals will have no lasting appeal.
