Aquarius

Your Most Likable Trait: FRIENDLINESS

The Sun resides in this eleventh sign of the zodiac from 21 January until 19 February every year. The symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer. In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You’re apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking. Aquarians are unorthodox, original people- sort of wacky, witty madcap s who refuse to follow the crowd and go their own way. You like being different. You not only march to a different drummer, you make up your own music as you go along. Intellectual independence is your most marked characteristic. You are liberal, progressive, yet fixed in opinion. You refuse to compromise or give an inch, You are a strange mix of avant-garde thinker whose opinions are written in stone. You cheerfully ignore what others think of you. You think boredom is a disease and take every opportunity to avoid it. You are a truth seeker and a truth teller; you give out opinions and observations with ease. You dispense wisdom. You are a seeker of knowledge, rational, open minded, gifted with breadth of vision. Chock full of information, you still search for more. You have a lot of ego invested in your opinions. When others disagree, you take this as an attack on your person-hood.

Paradoxically, you’re a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don’t like to feel fenced in. While you’re headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You’re more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations. You can be objective in judgments, for you don t let emotions get in the way. This built in distrust of emotion compels you to struggle against its chains, and this may become a source of inner conflict.

You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don’t mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You are very people oriented, addicted to the study of human beings and a skillful people watcher. Outgoing and amiable, you attract friends wherever you go. You have a talent for making people laugh. Whoever you meet, you remain you- that amusing, inquisitive, interested person who wants to know what makes others tick.

Your gift is for dealing with all kinds of personalities from every walk of life, no matter what their station or status. We re all related, you believe, because we are all human beings. For you, the ultimate liberation is simply the freedom to be yourself. You are the kind of person who follow the dream, you are an idealist who hates to see anyone unhappy. You may become involved in social causes because of your desire to improve the way things are. Your great weakness is your tendency to inflate your own importance, to pose as an expert on any subject. You are determined not to be like anyone else that you are sometimes contrary just to be different. Nonetheless, you are among the kindest people in the world. Easygoing, reasonable, slow to take offense, never mean hearted, you believe in live and let live. Honest, helpful, altruistic and never boring.

Freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don’t usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.

Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.

THE INNER YOU

The most frequent question you ask is “Why?” You want to understand what makes other people tick. Their lives fascinate you because you hope they will offer you insights into your own. You have plenty of love to give and you want nothing more than to have lots of interesting friends, a wonderful love relationship, fulfilling work, and for the world to be a better place and everyone to be happy. Not much to ask, is it? One of your best- kept secrets is how shy and insecure you are. You wonder if the people you care about feel the same way about you- this is why you work so hard to make others like you. You want to share yourself, but are afraid of losing who you are or becoming what other people think you should be. Yet somehow your feelings of insecurity manage to coexist with a belief that you are someone special.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

You’re often regarded as slightly eccentric- not necessarily strange, but certainly an independent character, a kind of daredevil with an unusual way of looking at things. People consider you a pathfinder, a member of he real avant-garde. They think you have a wicked sense of humor, an ability to shock and amuse at the same time. They know you’re open to new ideas, especially when ideas are your own. People are drawn to your friendliness and enthusiasm, but they withdraw quickly when you turn acid- tongued. Sometimes, because you need so much personal freedom, you give the impression of being uncaring or distant. Those around you may also become annoyed at your stubbornness.
