20 Jan - 18 Feb
The Aquarius is represented by the symbol of the water bearer and is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac that represents the future. With a strong and attractive personality, Aquarians actually fall into two distinct camps. One is the slightly sensitive and gentle one, the other the lively and enthusiastic aquarian. Don't expect them to follow the crowd, they do their own thing and think out the box.
Their personality attracts others and Aquarians by and large like the company of others and they have no problem making friends, even if they are the quieter Aquarians. But thanks to their independent streak - getting really close is a bit more difficult. Being creative and intelligent,they use time wisely to think abtou the future and make plans - meaning they sometimes excel at being leaders.
Independent, whacky, intelligent and creative - the Aquarius horoscope reads like an Ad agency creative in full flow. Thinkers and do-ers, they will try lots of new approaches to similar problems - often succeeding. They certainly don't get bored. This combination, in the right areas, makes them perfect leaders - but for their sometimes unreasonable high standards. They also listen to ideas- but rarely act on them, preferring their own way.
As for their loyalty - once you are a friend, then expect them to be able to help you whatever may come. As a sign of the Zodiac they are a humantarian and will do everything to protect and support their friends. Thus, finding partners and friends is not a problem, especially if their friends are also very independent and so there is a little distance always there.
Looking at some of their weaknesses and not so good traits, their independence can be misconstrued as stubborness or aloofness - fairly so! They are prone to being impatient, bullish, independent and therefore seemingly cold and impersonal. Just remember - they can be very very eccentric - all part of their charm.

|The good traits
||The not so good traits|
Personal relationships :
So we know that Aquarians can pull a crowd and and have a personality that embraces others and makes them very likeable and sought after as friends. Once they choose their real friendships, Aquarians often have an almost hypnotic effect on the other person - being loyal, making nothing seem to much effort and being ready to sacrifice things.
Unfortunately, they also have high expectations and can be emotionally let down by others that dont come up to their inevitably high standards. Therefore, they sometimes demand unreasonable levels of commitment and emotional partnership. Stubborness can then lead to anger and to an unforgiving streak when let down - rightly or wrongly - as some cannot succeed to expectations.
Travelling and getting away
Aquarius Health :
The circulatory system is the part of the body most in need of care and attention for those of the sign of Aquarius. Shins and ankles (the bones of the lower limbs in general) are also areas for which Aquarius needs to have particular concern.
Due to their susceptibility to problems concerning the circulatory system Aquarius should avoid cigarettes and high fat foods in general. Any type of substance that would tend to restrict the passage of blood through the veins or arteries of an Aquarius is to be avoided. This, of course, applies to all of the signs of the zodiac but Aquarians are particularly susceptible to arterial blockages. Oats and garlic are ideal substances for Aquarius to include in their diets as these are good for the circulation in general and these also clean and purify the blood. If Aquarius takes care of their circulatory systems by good diet and regular exercise they can avoid the heart problems that are associated with this sign as they grow older.
If an Aquarius develops varicose veins (unfortunately this is also common for those of the sign of Aquarius) they are advised to cut down on their alcohol intake as much as possible as this only serves to exacerbate the problem.
A daily regime of gentle walking is an ideal form of recreation for Aquarius as this is beneficial to all the ailments to which Aquarius is generally prone. Since they can also often suffer from hypertension an Aquarius would do well to investigate meditation along with deep breathing exercises. These two in combination can make a world of difference to the entire body of an Aquarius.
Aquarius Money/Career :
Since the character of Aquarius is imbued with a great concern for logic and clarity, members of this watery sign of the zodiac can often be found to working in the legal profession where they traditionally excel. Since Aquarius has an outgoing and magnetic personality the world of sales is also particularly suited to this sign and we often find that Aquarius comes top in any sales team regardless of the product in question. Their love of rational inquiry also makes Aquarius a very good candidate indeed for the role of scientist, doctor or philosopher.
As long as Aquarius is given a leading or commanding role, those born under this sign tend to work very well in larger groups. Their honed social skills, which allow them to interact easily with those of different abilities, are of great advantage in this area. In this way it is not at all unusual to find Aquarius joining a large organisation on the bottom rung and then quickly moving through the ranks into a position of power and authority. Government bureaucracies are an ideal setting for the character of Aquarius to flourish as Aquarius is accepted as being the type of person who has high social ideals and an interest in the welfare of the wider public as a whole.
Where money is concerned Aquarius does well. Although they are not obsessed with their financial status � they tend not to concentrate exclusively in this area � their systematic attitude where numbers are concerned automatically steers them away from difficulties around cash flow.
Aquarius in Astrology :
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and is symbolised by the Water Bearer. They are one of the three Air signs, the others being Gemini and Libra. Just like Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra and Sagittarius, we find that Aquarius is positive in polarity which makes them extrovert in personality and outgoing in general rather than being withdrawn or highly sensitive.
Aquarius is connected with Ganymede (the name of one of the moons of Jupiter) who, in Greek mythology was a beautiful young woman with whom Zeus, the head of the Greek pantheon, fell madly and deeply in love. Zeus disguised himself as an eagle, according to this lore, and carried Ganymede off to Mount Olympus, the home of the Greek Gods, in order that Ganymede would serve as cup-bearer to the deities who lived there.
Aquarius is often associated with water, particularly flowing water, in many ancient tales hence the symbol of water bearer. Aquarius also appears in the ancient Greek version of the tale of the great flood. In this tale it is Aquarius who pours the waters which eventually results in the deluge immersing almost of the creatures of the earth.
