Quality: Fixed Sign.
Ruling Planet: Uranus.
Aquarius individuals are eccentric, free-spirit, idealistic, open-minded, tactless, revolutionary and emotionally detached. With Uranus as the ruling planet, people born under this sign are progressive, inventive and unconventional. The Aquarius person tends to be hard to define in personality as it frequently changes or highly fluctuating and a bit peculiar. One day they are interesting, expressive, and full of energy while the next day they can become dull, reserved and silent.
Aquarians are unpredictable, and as a result, they sometimes get a reputation for unreliability. They can be quite scattered and chaotic, and often reject social conventions, though these people are susceptible to modern fads. They are full of brilliant ideas and can be absent-minded and wacky, but prone to highly impractical behaviour. They are rarely anxious or frightened and they tend to be cheerful and confident most of the time.
They are highly eccentric and usually also prefer the company of other eccentric types. Often restless and easily bored, Aquarians seek out people who are original, exciting and creative, and sometimes even a little unstable or dangerous, to obtain novel experiences and have interesting conversations. People born under this sign are experimental sensation seekers and as a result, they may get into trouble. This is a sign in need of constant intellectual stimulation. They constantly seek out change and novelty.
Don't expect an Aquarian to follow the crowd. They are individuals who like to do their own thing and they enjoy being different. However Aquarius people are one of the friendliest, they are often at their best in social settings and work well with groups. Aquarians tend to have a wide circle of acquaintences rather than spending their time with just a few close friends or family members. Lacking in prejudice, Aquarians tend to have friends of widely varying ages, personality types and cultural backgrounds.
They will fight avidly for the rights of others. Their humanitarian beliefs make them concerned for the welfare of all. Along with Libra Aquarius people are one of the most humanitarian of the zodiac signs. These people are very helpful to the point of selflessness. An Aquarian can surprisingly give his/her last ten dollar to someone in need (even to a complete stranger). They are generous to a fault and have trouble saving money as a result. They also have a strong sense of fairness.
Yet, while they love people, they tend to avoid getting too deeply involved in a relationship for fear of losing their independence. Aquarians are extremely tolerant of the quirks, strange beliefs and idiosyncrasies of others, and are willingly to stick up for unpopular viewpoints, individuals or ideologies if they feel that there is merit to them. They are also highly rebellious and freedom loving, relationships with severely jealous types are usually doomed to failure.
They are extremely intelligent too, Aquarians take pride in their intellectual independence. Aquarians are inventors and good creators. Most have scientific minds, suited for chemistry, physics, work with computers and technical writing. They usually have an interest in outer space or anything futuristic. Some also interested in the occult and other paranormal or unexplained phenomena. While they are not at all aggressive or combative, Aquarians like to give their intellect a good workout with worthy oponent in an intellectual debate. Aquarians value inventiveness and intelligence over physical appearance and surface style. Many astrologers see Aquarius as the genius sign. Many of scientists, astronomers or physics professors are happen to be Aquarians.
The downside is that Aquarians can be impatient, obstinate and stubborn in their opinions. They are fiercely independent and this can make them seem cold, detached, and impersonal at times. They embrace their eccentric ideas so much that they can be viewed as rebellious and unpredictable. However, the combination of their creative attributes, original thoughts, kindness, and love of people makes them one of the greatest hero and leaders.
