Aquarius: The Knowledgeable Waterbearer (January 20 – February 19)

The Water Bearer stands for independent, friendly, inventive and ingenious. This unique nature makes them progressive, a “know it all” and therefore, unpredictable. They can be detached, logical and considered “the rebel”. Aquarius is unconventional, intellectual, objective, individualistic, tolerant, rebellious, sophisticated, future oriented, friendship oriented, humanitarian, cause oriented and believes in groups and society.

The “users” of the zodiac, an Aquarius individual is often perverse, seeking to do things their own way even if that happens to be more difficult than the normal way of doing things. They have a tendency to treat “everyone” the same, which can be a problem for a husband or wife of Aquarius, as they will rarely see any special love or attention just for them.

Just for You…

Air Element

(Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) possess the virtue of knowledge. This does not mean they are more intelligent than anyone else but are generally well rounded and informed. They are good communicators. Most have a good grasp of the language and generally know a little something about everything. They have good personalities…

Fixed Sign

For Fixed air, (Aquarius) fixes on a continuum that reaches into the future, and can doggedly push for reform, or spend a lifetime on their personal inventions. The Fixed Signs like stability. They want to own things. They want to be the boss and let the cardinal signs run things for them.   

Astrological House

The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.   

Your Planet Uranus (and Saturn)

To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.

Medical Astrology

Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.

The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Aquarius – ankles, calves, circulatory system and blood pressure.

The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body:

Uranus – parathyroid gland, neural activity, aura, as well as, Saturn – skin, hair, teeth, bones, the body’s defenses, spleen

In medical astrology, Aquarius is ruled by the ankles, calves, circulatory system and blood pressure.

You have been associated with two planets over the centuries because before the discovery of Uranus, Saturn was regarded as the ruling planet of Aquarius. Many astrologers still use Saturn as the planetary ruler of both Capricorn and Aquarius. In modern astrology it is Uranus that rules the eleventh house.

In medical astrology, Aquarius is ruled by the lower limbs and circulatory system. Poor circulation can be a real problem, especially in the lower legs and calves. Poor circulation is the cause of over 1000 diseases! From a healthy heart to a good sex life, the proper flow and circulation of blood in our arteries is one of the most important things we can do to maintain good health and push back the aging process. There is a common denominator between good arterial health and disorders such as heart attack, obesity, diabetes and high glucose levels, as well as sexual health. That common denominator is blood.

The most common disorders for Aquarius are vericose veins, leg cramps, shin splints and sprained ankles.

One of the single most preventatives is a proper diet. Because diet strongly influences weight, sex hormone production, including testosterone, the health of our arteries and its flow, it is important to cut back on excess meat consumption, full fat, dairy products and eat more rich, green vegetables and fruits. Many Aquarians have an allergy to wheat or wheat products and should consider eating gluten free foods.

Stretching is extremely important for blood flow to the lower legs and calves. Regular cardiovascular exercise is important for blood flow and circulation and keep blood pressure levels in check.

Your healing color is blue.

Aquarius is yang in natureYang energy is more masculine, is related to light, sun, brightness, heaven, time, south, east and left. Yang signs are the odd numbered ones. Those belonging to yang energy have a tendency to be more assertive and self-expressive.

The Lucky Aquarius

Luck. What exactly is luck? Is luck being at the right place at the right time? Finding that lucky penny? Always landing on your feet? Finding a four leaf clover? Discovering bird droppings on your shoulder? What ever your idea of luck, research has found that people are divided.

Aquarius are lucky people. This is because you see the big picture. You are considered the genius of the Zodiac and that has to do with the unique mix of your air element, which supplies you with the mental alertness and your quality of being a fixed sign. This stability trait allows you to reach and achieve. You relish in luck and “happinstance”, those things that fall into your lap. If you realize this, you are a lucky person. If you do not recognize these characteristics, you need to pay more attention.

You vibrate to the number four – and your planet Uranus is the new ruler of Aquarius. Uranus represents unconventionality, flashes of inspiration, awakening, disruption, and certainly independence. Mastering the laws of the earth often involves hard work and you are up to the task and Saturday is your day to do this work, as your other planet, Saturn encourages this. Before the discovery of Uranus, Saturn was assigned to Aquarius and metaphysically, it is your day of transition, therefore your energies are most strong this day.

Four is your number which, represents wholeness (as in the four corners of a square). Many crystals have an extra four-sided facet, often diamond shaped, on their main termination face. Meditate or concentrate with this four-sided crystal and you will be able to find out about a particular lesson or goal in your life and how to accomplish it.   Now get lucky!

Money and Aquarius

Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.

Aquarius puts their money to good use. Money for you is not the end all be all. Money for you is a means to get to a higher place. You can be a great philanthropist. For you, money buys you the time and space to do things you want. It allows you freedoms you would normally not have if you were penniless.

You may relish in fancy cars and expensive homes, but ultimately, they are in place for reasons you may not see or realize. Your unconscious, underlying goal is to help others with your money. Money can come easy to you, especially if you let it “happen”. Sometimes trying too hard can get you no where. Uranus represents change and as it moves through your houses it shakes up everything around you. That is why understanding the big picture serves you best.  Now get money!

Aquarius and Career

Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!

Aquarius are unconventional. Seeing the big picture gives you a bird’s eye view of the mundane, ordinary and usual… and that is not you! Sometimes looked at as eccentric, unique and beyond convention, your free spirited way of thinking makes you feel boundless and without boundaries.

This can be both a blessing and a curse. As you tend not to fit into the norm, you can be perceived as either a genius or just plain crazy! Your intelligence draws you to careers that stimulate the brain like no other. You can be an inventor, engineer, mechanic, electrician, computer wiz, consultant, programmer, analyst or economist. You are drawn to the occult and could even be an astrologer. You have the gift of reform.

You actually do believe in fairness and equality and would make a great mediator. You have a humanitarian nature that wants to reach out to your community to help others. Ultimately, though, you like doing it your way. This is the fixed quality of your personality.  Now find success!

Happiness and Aquarius

Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.

Aquarius can be happy people. Your are the visionary of the zodiac and therefore you are most happy when you are sharing your knowledge and insight. You have a strong point of view and you like sharing it. This can also be interpreted as stubborn, bossy and opinionated. You are sometimes considered rebellious and unpredictable. Because you tend to be inflexible and not good at just going with the flow, you can often loose friends, work or lovers because of this.

A good lesson for you to ensure your happiness is humility. Being a little more humble will save you much heartache and pain. Your need to always do your own thing, can be your undoing as it may not always be the right choice. Learn to cherish those moments of joy and gratitude, as they could be your greatest rewards.  Now find happiness!

Sex and Aquarius

Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.

Aquarius are experimental. You are open to all avenues of experimentation and unorthodox relationships in the attempt that you will unearth new ways of discovering your own sexual secrets. You are drawn to those who also have interesting sexual tastes and unconventional minds.

You like independent types who have their freedom and allow you to do the same. Your curiosity for different societies, social groups and friends stimulate your intellectual libido and you are always seeking to learn more from your partners. Your emotional mind is on the back burner, as your cool and collective attitude is your real sexual pheromone.

You will play along at least until you’ve extracted a new discovery and then you are on to the next. Although you can be extremely tender and giving in a relationship, you are not overly demonstrative. Your sexual connections are based on your intellectual equality with your partner.  Now get sex!

On the Edge: Born on the Cusp

If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs.  This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!

Cusp of Aquarius and Capricorn
January 17 and January 23

Considered the Cusp of Mystery, this combination comes from the grounding aspect of the earth element and the lofty, care-free airelement. This contradiction in “energies” inspires your quirky, off-beat nature with your reserved, yet social approach to interacting with others. You are a mentally inclined spirit that acquires knowledge through experience, education and association. Your conventional, proper ways are embellished by your socially acceptable conduct while interacting with others.

Your imagination only adds to your mystique and gives you the opportunity to see, ideas and approaches that can lead you to much success in most career endeavors. You love to entertain, talk about intellectually stimulating subjects and have no problem conversing about “off the wall” or strange topics. Your “internal excitement” often leads you to live an unusual life. This can put you in your own category, making it difficult to maintain personal relationships. Probably because you feel a need for independence and a tendency give off an aloof and/or critical aura.

Your vivid dreams and wild fantasies usually need to be expressed, so doing this creatively will make you the happiest. Also, if you show your loyalty and your friendly and funny side, you will make friends all the time.

Cusp of Aquarius and Pisces
February 15 to February 21

This is considered the cusp of Sensitivity!  Imaginative and compassionate, your visionary ideas and highly intellectual insight will make you “offbeat” or “eccentric,” and this makes you a unique powerhouse. It also makes you the ideal “hippie”, spiritual, artistic, peace-loving and friendly.

With your combined elements of air and water and 4 planetary influences (Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn and Uranus), you are arguably, the most intuitive cusp sign, lending a naturally psychic and compassionate view of the world. You love exploring spiritual matters and philosophical ideals and really “see” things for what they are AND what they could be…. a very rare gift.

Due to these celestial influences, you are often pulled to be social or shy, outgoing or peculiar… or a mix of both. Spending time with friends and family is a great stress relief for you, but at they same time, their actions, comments or behavior can attack your sensitive side, often causing you to hide out alone and escape into your vivid imagination.

If you choose to simply manage the details of day-to-day life, you will remain focused and prepared. Living in the “now” will keep you from loosing track of time, forgeting important dates or appointments or mind-wandering. This will keep you “grounded” and in the moment.
