Your Aquarius Horoscope explained…
When I was much younger I once knew a girl who used joke about the fact that when she was a child her parents would always refer to her as ‘such an individual’. Looking back now I recall she was an Aquarius. Indeed, Aquarians are the individuals of the zodiac, choosing to think and sometimes even behaving just so differently from everyone else.
If you were born under this unique star sign, then the dazzling and progressive planet Uranus rules you. This planet endows you with power, electricity and a desire to be completely different to everyone around you. Some astrologers refer to Uranus as the revolutionary planet and indeed many reformers and revolutionaries were born under this sign.
You are a self-sufficient individual and prefer not to tread the beaten path. For you, life and destiny are carved out by yourself and lived wholly and solely on your own terms.
You have an enormous amount of energy and are determined and forceful in how you deal with others. At first you are seen as aloof and possibly even snobbish, but you like to assess people and the situation first before showing your hand. In some ways this is a technique for gaining the upper hand in your relationships.
You tend to be quite sensitive if others try to take control. This reflects some of your earlier childhood issues at which time you probably found yourself under the stern rule of someone over whom you had no say. As you grow older, you’ll be mindful of this fact and want to be totally in control of your own destiny.
You’ll realise also that not everyone subscribes to your rather different philosophy of life and for this reason you will more than likely have to keep your ambitions in your back pocket until the appropriate time for fear of ridicule.
As you get older you’ll be quite comfortable in the company of young people and your tastes tend to grow and change with the times. You’re certainly no stick in the mud even if you have reached middle age or older.
Aquarians have a tendency to be drawn to community and social issues so you’ll want to do something that will make a difference in this world. It’s quite possible you’ll be involved in groups and organisations that have a hand in uplifting the less fortunate in society. Charitable work is also not out of the question.
There are many famous reformers and helpers of the downtrodden, including Oprah Winfrey, Yoko Ono and, even would you believe, Germaine Greer, who spearheaded the women’s liberation movement back in the ’60s and ’70s.
You have good organisational skills and your communication is very sharp. You like to work with others and to express your ideas and come up with unique solutions to problems, both personal and professional.
You like to get to the bottom of things and this is due to your curious and mentally precise insights. Aquarius is an air sign and is notorious for thinking. The mind is your realm and creating through ideas is second nature to you.
You relate extremely well to anyone with whom you come in contact, as communication is your forte. You believe we grow through the expression of ideas and helping our fellow man. You’ll continue to evolve as a human being throughout your life and this is the one thing that truly fires you up. You’re not afraid of challenges and, when arguing a point, are most impressive due to your background knowledge. Again, you are not conventional in the way you study, live or present your ideas but others will have to give you credit for your originality.
Uranus is also abrupt and thrilling by nature so your life will never be dull. In fact, if you are like many Aquarians and examine your life, you’ll see it has been full of thrills and spills. Unexpected and surprising events will occur at every step of your path.
Your far-reaching attitude sometimes overwhelms your friends and family members and people see you as rather flamboyant, if not harmlessly mad.
Your approach to love and relationships is also fairly quirky. You don’t like anything conventional and prefer people who are a little different, as long as they can mentally stimulate you. Anything but boredom, you say.
