29 January-10 February
Place and Character
The Scientist of the Zodiac, Aquarius is ruled by URANUS, and its symbol is the WATER-BEARER. Its natural place is the ELEVENTH HOUSE, the house of Friendships and Experimentation. Revolutionary Aquarius is an AIR sign, idealistic and inventive. Aquarius often moodswings, optimistically reforming the social structure one minute, then despondent at the impossibility of perfect happiness the next. They are characterized as being individualistic, unconventional, progressive, unique, independent, humanitarian, altruistic, visionary, perceptive, intellectual, logical, ingenious, inventive, unpredictable, detached, friendly, and scientific.
Aquarians do not like showing their real feelings. An independent nature also means that they take their time to settle into a steady relationship. They find it hard to work up trust but will remain very faithful once a relationship is established.
Colours: Electric blue, shocking pink, flourescent hues. All the bright colours of the rainbow are the colours of Uranus, ruler of Aquarius.
Stones: Sapphire, opal and chalcedony.
Trees: Cornus and eucalytus.
Flowers: Orchids, pelargorium and hibiscus.
Aquarians enjoy having the opportunity to skip from one job to another and hate to be tied down. They like the freedom money brings them, but are more interested in ideals than in being rich.
