Aquarians are gifted thinkers and their intuitions place them way ahead of their time. They are humanitarian and motivated in all they do by the desire to make the world a better place. These individuals love to work in a group and they love their work if it gives them the opportunity to express original ideas.
Sometimes, Aquarians are seen as eccentric and rebellious – this occurs when they do not have an appropriate outlet for their original ideas. Aquarians need to feel free to do what they want to do whenever they wish. They are quite stubborn about having their own time and territory and for this reason they can be difficult to live with. Nevertheless, in family life they are loyal and always live up to their responsibilities. They do need to remember that their loved ones want to be treated in a special way rather than with the same tolerance and affection as anyone who comes into their orbit.
Friendship is the Aquarian’s great talent. They are likely to have friends from all walks of life and enjoy sharing their interests and ideas with them. Aquarians are often attracted to working for themselves as it gives them immense satisfaction to attain their own ideals.
Their work must be creative and yet of use to others. They are often inclined to get involved in campaigns to alleviate suffering, inequality or pollution. The detached Aquarius would benefit from adopting some of the passion and loving warmth of the opposite sign of Leo.
In astrology, the air signs consist of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. They are often called “sweet” in comparison with the “bitter” fire signs.
According to astrological theory, air signs are the talkers and communicators of the zodiac. Typically they are supposed to be intellectual, analytical, articulate, and versatile – able to discuss just about any topic.
Air signs are also seen as the masters of social graces because they enjoy socializing and are very good at “small talk.” They are often seen as so objective that they are unable to be practical and realistic.
Some believe that air signs are supposed to be so changeable they will not stay anywhere for any length of time, and so restless they have trouble with serious concentration on any single job they might be required to carry out, but when need be are capable tapping into a reserve of willpower to get their negative obligations over with.
Air signs’ role is seen as providing the ideas that make the future different from the past, whereas fire signs carry out the actions necessary for this. Air signs continually thirst for interaction and view every experience as a potential opportunity for fun, education and growth as a person.
In human relationships, air signs are said to be gregarious and extroverted, often attracting friends very willingly and easily with their charm and ability to communicate. However, air signs are believed to be lacking in passion and unable to form strong, lasting relationships; astrologers believe few air sign people are able to have a single marriage, for they are said to be as apt to try out new people as new ideas.
On the other hand, they’re usually good at compromising time and space, and given enough leeway from their partners, this helps to keep them from feeling ‘trapped’ in an old relationship.
They are also thought to be extremely lacking in emotional depth because they tend to intellectualise their feelings and generally want to avoid difficult obstacles that might be needed to hold a partnership together.
Air is generally good and societally decent, but can be crafty, underhanded and ingenious when it comes to evil — though not prone to physical violence. Chief fault is trickery, when need be, they can become very convincing liars in order to get what they want.
At their worst, Air can be fault-finding, mean-spiritedness, gossipy and grudging. Air is swift to express opinions and is more opinionated than most. Air is slow to verbally express anger and physical violence is not generally a first choice in terms of an attack.
Aquarius – Relations With Other Element Signs
Air signs are seen as complementary to fire signs because they provide the ideas that allow the fire signs to carry out their action. However, it is often thought that fire signs are too flagrant and impatient for the air signs to tolerate permanently.
Air signs more or less understand earth signs because they share the same basic rational and objective nature. However, whilst air signs admire earth signs’ will to achieve, they find them too timid, pessimistic, undemonstrative, and cautious; the earth signs, though attracted by the air signs’ unique thoughts, find them overwhelmingly unrealistic and flippant.
Water signs are believed to be much too passionate and emotionally deep for air signs’ flighty, flirtatious nature; indeed, astrology suggests that air signs hate water signs for being too subjective, secretive, illogical and lose respect for them when they come to the belief that the Water signs are unintelligent, and later become astounded by their deductive powers.
For their part, water signs supposedly deride air signs as emotionally shallow, excessively concerned with worldly pleasure, and uncaring towards others, though sometimes an air sign can balance out the traits of a water sign (thus creating a great friendship).
Air signs will find themselves most compatible with fire signs, who share similar traits of being positive, extroverted, outgoing, and fun-loving.
Fire signs may not be as objective as air signs, as air signs may not be as passionate as fire signs, but they can generally adapt to each other’s ways, and find they have a lot of different traits to offer in fulfilling one another.
The Fixed Zodiac Signs
In astrology, there are four fixed signs.
Fixed Signs are at the height of the four seasons and are associated with stamina, perseverance and strength and said to be, by nature, inert. However, they are also associated with inflexibility.
Individuals born under the four Fixed Signs of the Zodiac are thought to be determined, powerful, natural leaders, purposeful, reliable, loyal and self-confident but also occasionally stubborn and immovable, with a tendency to get stuck in ruts. They supposedly pursue their goals with dogged persistence and have a great power of concentration.
According to astrologers, Fixed Signs tend to direct their energies inward rather than outward.
The four Fixed Signs of the Zodiac are:
Taurus: Being an Earth sign it is said to be the most stable, patient and determined of all the Fixed Quality Signs.
Leo: As a Fixed Fire sign Leo individuals are said to burn with a greater intensity than the other two Fire Signs. They are supposedly much less impulsive than Aries natives and not as prone to “wanderlust” as Sagittarius subjects.
Scorpio: A Water sign, of the Fixed Quality, Scorpio is thought to deeply internalise emotions and pursue goals with keen insights, perception and much willpower.
Aquarius: An Air sign, while generally considered to be a spontaneous and erratic Sign, many astrologers also agree there is also a distinct lack of flexibility in Aquarius character due to their Fixed Quality.
