Aquarius is ruled by Saturn. These natives basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Even in company they are fiercely independent refusing to follow the crowd and take pride in the fact that they are so unique. They dislike interference in their way and will accept it only on their own terms. They are determined and forceful in how they deal with people. Aquarians are introvert by nature and are not able to make friends easily. They are also very kind and have a strong desire to help humanity. They do not give themselves easily. Even then they are not that loyal for their love mates but still they want complete loyalty in return.
Their anger is among their negative traits and if they are deceived their anger is terrible and if disillusioned, they do not forgive. Aquarians are very good at group project. They are very ambitious people and also dream a lot and sometimes their dream help them to achieve their goal. Aquarians will never reveal their innermost feelings, no matter how hard others may try to persuade them, simply because they are unable to do so. They are very helpful and compassionate by nature. Aquarians people are remarkable spiritual healers. They will keep on evaluating situations, people etc on regular basis. Still at the end of the day, they will be as confused as before. They are very emotional, very sensitive but tend to be suspicious and can be very tactless and rude at times.
The air of Aquarius can be like the winds after a lightning strike. Large amounts of air are moved around suddenly in such a storm, and that which survives this intensity gets to enjoy the calm after the storm.
The symbol for Aquarius is the Water-Bearer, a universal man who is pouring forth water from a jug. This universal man represents the community of mankind. The waters of life flow, like ideas coming from the unrestrained mind. Many people mistakenly think that Aquarius is a water sign, but it is an intellectual air sign. As such, Aquarius can be interested in concepts and ideas. Because of its universality, Aquarius can seem somewhat detached from personal emotions. It's not that you Aquarius don't have feelings; it's just that yours are different from most others. You dance to the beat of a different drummer.
Aquarius can be good communicators as long as you stay in the mental realms. Aquarius are friendly, but can become uncomfortable as you discuss your feelings. In fact, your friends are very important to you and Aquarius might be involved with groups of like-minded people in a social club, a political action group or a public service group.
The Aquarius motto could be Einstein's "Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." And yours is a great spirit, sometimes erratic and sometimes brilliant. You know much about yourself and the world, but knowing everything can be an obstacle to your own happiness. Your practice is twofold. First, you must learn how to separate your crazy notions from what is important. And second, you need to learn how to respond to the opposition you encounter without making it difficult for yourself.
The astrological element of air represents movement. And the most efficient movement between two points is often a thought. Air signs are thinkers. They emphasize the intellect over other functions. With active minds and a good command of language, the air signs are the natural born communicators. They can be light and breezy as the breath of spring, but their words can also carry the power of a gale force wind.
Eleventh House: Future
The Eleventh House is sometimes called the House of Friends, Hopes and Dreams. Friends will support our dreams of the future. Here, in the Eleventh House, we're not concerned with our day-to-day responsibilities. Instead, we are thinking about our ideal situation and dreaming of ways to get there. Whether we do or not is less important than keeping the dreams alive.
Key Planet: Uranus
Uranus is the weirdest planet in the solar system. Its north pole faces the Sun and its Moons spin around it backwards. As such, Uranus symbolizes the eccentric and unique things in our lives. It is associated with brilliance -- even if short-lived. And, like lightning, Uranus can release the hidden tensions suddenly and with great immediacy. In fact, Uranus is often the astrological culprit when our lives are turned upside-down. As the key planet of Aquarius, it encourages us to rebel against social injustices and to seek freedom of expression in our lives.
