Aquarius - The Water Bearer ( 20th Jan – 18th Feb )
Aquarius Zodiac Sign Personality Traits
Aquarius personality traits are somewhat diametrically opposed sometimes creating stress and tension for Aquarius to carry. The Aquarius season is the penultimate season of the zodiac so it is the 11th star sign.
Key Personality Traits
Aquarius is known as the Water Bearer because Aquarians carry a lot of emotions within. Although they are associated sometimes with water, in Astrology – Aquarius is an Air sign. They are actually a Fixed sign and the final Air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius loves to think about lots of different things and converse with other Air signs Gemini and Libra. Aquarius is ruled by two planets – Uranus and Saturn who are quite opposite in temperament. Under the auspices of Uranus they tend towards unpredictability, volatility and rebelliousness. They value their own freedom and independence. But simultaneously, they also value conservatism and structure. Aquarius can be very fixed in their ideas and usually think they’re right! Aquarians are therefore inclined to be both stubborn and eccentric. They can get really worked up about things as they simultaneously carry the energy of the Saturnian and Uranian opposing forces within.
The Legend of Prometheus and Aquarius
Apparently, Uranus was misnamed, it was meant to be called Prometheus. This is the Titan who brought the gift of Fire to humanity. Fire is the symbol of the Gods bringing the creative spirit down to Earth. This wholly spirit inspires us to do small and great things. Fire is also a symbol of consciousness. Kinda like when Eve ate the forbidden fruit of self knowledge, she became self aware. The story of Prometheus is where one of the best Aquarius traits – humanitarianism comes from. Zeus wasn’t happy about people getting ahead of themselves with this consciousness idea, so he chained poor Prometheus to a rock so every day an eagle could come at rip out his liver! Overnight it would grow back so the eagle could have another go at him the next day. Zeus had sentenced Prometheus to an eternity of suffering.
Prometheus Outsmarts Zeus!
However, it wasn’t meant to be as eventually, Prometheus made a deal with Chiron to take his place on the rock. Chiron is the wounded healer who can never heal his own wound but who could heal others. Though Aquarius has a great need for freedom, they are capable of making sacrifices for the good of society.
Other Key Traits
Often they will keep their own counsel and some see them as being ‘a bit of a loner’. So Aquarius personality traits are pretty much a mixed bag of traditional values and unpredictable rebelliousness. Aquarians are also a combo of innovative originality and creativity and they require a lot of their own space. At other times they are quite the opposite, being drawn to people. Although they can give off mixed signals and people then think they are cold and aloof, in reality, they are just stuck inside their heads and can easily get lost in thought.
More Aquarius Traits
Intelligent and logical, practical and imaginative, Aquarians also have a surprisingly spiritual nature. Only Aquarius can uniquely bridge the gap between science and spirit. The starsign of Aquarius is often associated with technology and especially now, the internet. They make good scientists, engineers or anything where analytical ability and logic is required.
By the way, an Aquarius can often make an excellent astrologer even if they’re somewhat conservative in their beliefs.
Aquarius – The Humanitarian
Those born under the zodiac sign of Aquarius work well in groups, often helping others achieve their goals. There is often latent psychic or healing ability, which blossoms as Aquarians mature. Aquarians need plenty of time and understanding from others to ‘find’ themselves, they will then return much. They believe in fairness and equality. Generally, they want to make the world a better place and tend towards being quite idealistic. Aquarians are usually inclined towards humanitarianism and some work towards improving the lives of large numbers of people. They oscillate between being attracted to people and at other times being on their own.
