Aquarius at a glance:

Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac and a universal sign. It is the 3rd and last air sign. Aquarius symbolizes advanced thought, acceptance, truth and wisdom. It is erratic in its motions and can break down almost any resistance. They can be great at communication. Their energies need guidance and taming. They transcend material restrictions and limitations, but can be unpredictable, eccentric and erratic at times. You might mistake them for being quiet, but it is just them being aloof and once they start talking you have to hit them over the head to get them to stop. They tend to have all sorts of idiosyncratic behaviors. Trying to outguess then is not easy. They do not like repetitive work that require consistency, but need a lot of latitude to exercise their imaginative powers. Placing them under as few restrictions as possible is best. Neither you nor they know what they are going to do or say next. Happiness and joy is very important to them. They do not like rejection as they have an open attitude towards life. They are normally very friendly and make a good friend. However doe not bank on them fully when in need as they are more interested in good times. They tend to be far more accepting that others and are often of the idea that others are as accepting as they are. They do love for things to go easy. They are a real party person and have a knack for making friends wherever they go. Wishing for things to go happily and understanding every situation, they can fly off the handle if faced with conflict or with stressful demands. They may go on the attack without notice or just choose to leave. They normally either live in the past or future but rarely in the present as it does not mean much to them. They do like to promote high ideals. Often accused of coolness or lack of emotion due to their strive for objectivity. Some may find them to superficial as they tend to skate easily through life. They often are attracted to the profound darker aspects of others that they lack themselves.

Aquarius Energy: Yin

The light side: Making the world a better place, constantly growing in person, often commit to a humanitarian cause

Capricorn - Aquarius Cusp

Zodiac Position Central Concept Seasons Elements Qualities Ruling Planets Symbol Modes
+-26 Capricorn - 3 Aquarius Mystery and imagination Mid Winter Earth / Air Cardinal / Fixed Saturn / Uranus The Goat / The water bearer Sensation / Thought


Leading a dull life is not the thing for this imaginative cusp. Often able to bring entertainment and excitement wherever they go. Their source of energy can often be found in an inner world in which Mystery and Imagination are in supremacy. Even those appearing quiet or unassuming have a vivid, active fantasy and dream life and are likely experiencing quite a lot of excitement in private.
The earthy stability of Capricorn can be split in an instant under lightning-quick and erratic mentality of Aquarius. Thus conflicts may arise between conservative and radical influences which stand little chance of being fully reconciled. They can sometimes lack empathic feelings and be at the mercy of their impulses. Particularly prone to unusual experiences and the enjoyment of vivid visual
images. Having an active dream life, can make the waking life seem dull. Using their fantasy world as the basis for creativity, can translate their private images into symbols or ideas which have
meaning for their friends and the world at large.

Find an outlet for your creative energy and communicate what you experience.
Do not be discouraged by lack of understanding, ignorance or negative criticism.

Attractions: To all other cusps but more so to Cancer-Leo (July 19-25, and Scorpio-Sagittarius (November 19-24) cusps.


Aquarius 1

Zodiac Position Central Concept Seasons Elements Qualities Ruling Planets Symbol Modes
+-2 - 11 Aquarius Genius Mid Winter Air Fixed Uranus The water bearer Thought

Often precocious, they can be distinguished by the quickness of their perceptions and learning processes. Aquarius 1's do tend to bore easily, losing interest if unable to grasp a concept or make something work quickly. They do not normally like repetitive tasks that demand concentration or endeavors that require stubborn determination. Patience is not their strongest suit by any means. With their quick minds they often come into conflict with more controlling personalities trying to force them to accept a life of unchallenging, un stimulating work. Their free spirit rarely allows them to submit to discipline. They sometimes reject their peers who cannot keep up with them mentally and the elders who are bent on helping them ground their flighty and often brilliant energies. Becoming objects of jealousy or adulation' can result because of their insistence on living their own life and being themselves. They however do grow tired of the attention and are not built to deal with complex emotional needs and demands of others.

Set realistic goals and understand that a certain amount of undesirable personal interaction is always necessary to get ahead in life. Be thick-skinned or downright insensitive if called for. Grow patience and persistence rather than always going your own way. Lean to handle frustration and be tough enough to quietly demand the very best for yourself

Aquarius 2

+-10 - 19 Aquarius Youth and Ease Mid Winter Air Fixed Uranus The water bearer Thought

Aquarius 2 people like things to go easily. Often performing activities with an ease and grace that deeply impress others. Riding the bicycle of life with "no hands" is an Aquarius 2 specialty.
Aquarius 2's are often mentally and often physically quick. They have an ability to consistently produce and perform which is what distinguish them, rather than abstract or original thought processes. Often charming and possessing a fine appearance, Aquarius 2's may come to be dependent on the
admiration or even awe they can arouse in others to go through life. Many may reveal a large
measure of their full powers by the age of twenty and coupled with their distaste for hassles or difficulties can gain for them a reputation of being superficial or lacking depth.
Though such a charge may in fact be groundless.

Try and face problems head on. Try to get in touch with your own deeper feelings. Don't put to much importance on others' opinion of you. Be yourself and do things for yourself a bit, you do not need to please everyone and not all the time. Find what is important to you and go for your dreams.

Aquarius 3

Zodiac Position Central Concept Seasons Elements Qualities Ruling Planets Symbol Modes
+-18 - 27 Aquarius Acceptance Mid Winter Air Fixed Uranus The water bearer Thought

Often endowed with a deep and lasting social consciousness, Aquarius 3's are often idea people.
With a strong moral sense, they are often visionaries and capable of understanding everyday situations in universal terms. Some have psychic powers and are accurate in predicting future events.
Acceptance ideas, people and situations that others would find strange, unappealing or weird' is everyday to them. They can be hardheaded and opinionated when young, but often become open minded in their later years. They can stand up courageously for their beliefs and no amount of criticism' alone can make them retreat. Cool under fire, but do not handle personal attack very well. This is their weak point and you can push their buttons' on a personal level. Often open and positive in personality with and alive outlook on live. They love to have fun, cracking jokes and sharing intimate time with others. They love to be free and without many responsibilities but their extreme sensitivity
makes them prone to quick mood swings in which they can become highly excitable and react to slights that are perhaps unintentional or even wholly imagined. Aquarius 3's must learn to toughen their hide a bit

Make some friends and realize that you do need people to get along in life. Be more open and accepting, but also demand that others accept you as you are. Use your psychic abilities constructively for they are valuable. Do not let rejection lower your self-esteem.


Aquarius-Pisces Cusp

Zodiac Position Central Concept Seasons Elements Qualities Ruling Planets Symbol Modes
+-26 Aquarius - 4 Pisces Sensitivity Late Winter Air / Water Fixed / Mutable Uranus / Neptune The water bearer / The Fish Thought / Feeling

This cusp often spends more energy on the personal and the universal than the worldly sphere. Often seen as an explorer who has courage enough to dig deep within him/herself but also yearns to soar
off into the beyond. They need to see that the extremes of internal and external, subjective and objective, personal and universal as simply two sides of the same coin. Ego and its social expression are very difficult for them and they need to focus more of their energy on managing the business of life.
The dynamic, universal nature of Aquarius is either tempered or challenged by the highly subjective,
personal nature of Pisces. Do not loose yourself to unrealistic dreams or submerging yourself in
the depths of your own concerns. They often hunger for experience But due to their sensitivity it can be very difficult for them to remain objective and balanced in their daily life.

Don't give up so easily on the world or retreat behind fences. Face obstructions and discover your sensitive self. Learning to trust may mean ceasing to fear. Try to take the middle road at times.

Attractions: To all other cusps but more so to Cancer-Gemini (June 19-24) and Leo-Virgo (August-19 - 25) cusps
