Aquarius, the sign that is
As the eleventh sign of the Zodiac, Aquarius represents Humanitarianism.
For Aquarius, Compassion is the keyword, Frankness, their quality and being Thinkers is their identity. The word Aquarius is a Latin translation of the Greek name, which means ‘the water pourer’. The Water-Bearer is the symbol of Aquarius, which truly represents this sign. Just as the bearer or pitcher stores and provides precious water, the Aquarius too enriches the world with their invaluable thoughts. Uranus and Saturn are their key planets. Uranus is the strangest of planets, which denotes surprise and sudden energy, while Saturn indicates restrictions and limitations. Air is their element, which points to movement.
Aquarius is friendly, affectionate, broad-minded, progressive, modern, attractive and creative. They are great intellectuals, who essentially remain as seekers of truth. But they can also be harsh and cold.
A woman born in the zodiac sign of Aquarius is essentially humane. Aquarians are born intellectuals, but they are also earthly beings, who don’t live in ivory towers. They are highly compassionate and also remain socially conscious. Their affection goes beyond their homes and immediate family. Guided by their inherent sense of humanitarianism, it encompasses a much wider spectrum. Whatever be her role and social standing, there will definitely be a noble intent deeply embedded in her for making her surroundings a better place to live. And she will also not hesitate to contribute her mite for achieving this cherished objective. They are also thinking individuals, who are very interested in acquiring knowledge. They can learn many languages, master varied subjects, have strong communication skills and engage people in purposeful conversation. They are quite friendly, broadminded and magnanimous. They are also balanced in their judgment and have good foresight, and generally try to use their abilities for the larger good of the society.
Aquarian women are also well known for many other fine qualities of theirs. Truthful, frank, independent and smart, they possess tremendous strength to take on difficult tasks, accept challenging assignments and complete them successfully. While they have their own beliefs and strong view points, they are honest and unbiased in their assessments, and not only value, but attach importance to others’ ideas and opinions. They are responsible individuals, and have the maturity to see beyond the immediate gains and look at the larger picture of an issue. They are also imaginative, spontaneous and inquisitive. They have a good sense of humour, are soft in nature, modern in outlook and have their own strong appeal. They thus make many friends, are associated with various bodies and associations, and remain popular in social circles.
An Aquarian woman loves reputation more than riches. She is unconventional and creative, and loves people who are intelligent and innovative. But she will hold her individuality very dear to her.
However, Aquarian women too have their own set of weaknesses.
They are truthful and frank, but tend to take these positive traits to extremes and become blunt and harsh. This indiscretion may hurt others and show the Aquarians as inconsiderate and insensitive. They may thus antagonize even friends and relatives. They are also not very outgoing, do not open up and mingle readily with people, and can thus create an impression that they are aloof and cold. This may contribute to their having only a few real friends, in spite of many acquaintances around. They are also somewhat unpredictable and impractical, with high expectations from others. They tend to get disappointed and emotionally disturbed, easily. All these may add up and many times, make Aquarian women loners, living a detached and emotionally secluded life, in spite of being part of large social circles. This sort of loneliness can make them bitter and not easily forgiving.
An Aquarius woman, with her intelligence, wit, wisdom, humour and grace can make a deep and lasting impression on her partner, who may consider her nothing short of a magical gift from heaven. A romance with her will be highly fulfilling, both physically and psychologically. Somewhat unconventional, she will still remain a complete family person and a good mother.
However, she can be detached and impersonal at times, and the intimacy with her may be devoid of real passion or deep emotions from her side.
If they themselves can value and cherish their own enviable traits like compassion, humanitarianism and honesty, and have a conscious check over their extreme frankness and aloofness, the Aquarius women can blossom into adorable entities, who can be admired, celebrated and emulated.
