Who Are We?

Aquarians are interesting and attractive people. They can be shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; or enthusiastic and lively with a tendency to be exhibitionists. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their own way. Very opinionated with strong convictions, they fight for what they believe in. They will argue vehemently for what they believe to be true, however, if you can show them facts to the contrary, they have little trouble altering their opinion.

These are farsighted people with an eye and ear to the new and innovative. They are generally without prejudice and quite tolerant of the point of view of others. They have an interesting side to their nature that allows them to see a valid argument even when they disagree with it. They are quite objective folk and never get waylaid by being too close to an issue or person.

Regardless of type, Aquarius is truly a humane, human being. Known to be frank and outspoken, a 'on my mind, on my mouth' type, Aquarius makes for a serious and genial companion. Refined and idealistic, romantic but practical, they are personable and likable people. Quick in mind and quick to respond, Aquarians love activity and are quite reasonable, though difficult to get close to. They cherish and guard their independence, and are a strange mixture of caring concern and cool detachment. They will go out of their way to help when needed, but never get involved emotionally.

Aquarians are usually intelligent, cool, clear, logical people. They have good imaginations and are quite intuitive. Aquarius is drawn to and inspired by great causes. In the midst of such a crusade they can be so completely devoted, that they drive themselves to the edge of complete exhaustion. This trait can be disheartening to those near and dear, for they get caught up with a cause in a way they never would with another person.

Whether the retiring or the outgoing Aquarian, both types appreciate opportunities to be alone. To Aquarians, being alone has nothing to do with being lonely. They enjoy their own company and are recharged by this quiet time. Rarely content being followers, they are more often society's trend setters. They do not take kindly to interference by others, even if it is well intended. Most Aquarians appreciate beauty and balance, possessing an excellent sense of aesthetics. This is often expressed by interests that can span drama, music, art, and science.

Aquarians are an enigma. On one hand they are warm, kind, and outgoing, the sort to make friends easily and willingly. On the other hand, they are quite aloof people, who do not actively seek out relationships, and resent any infringement on their time or resources. They are engaging, yet unreachable. They can be fascinating and dynamic, while lacking any real warmth or endearing qualities.

Aquarians work best in group projects, but must be recognized as having a leading role. They are akin to nature, and are seekers after knowledge and truth. They make excellent researchers and admirable scientists, especially astronomers and natural historians. They may lead the field in photography, computer technology. Radiography, electronics or anything connected with the electronic communication industries. Aviation is also a natural vocation for Aquarians, as it was for Charles Lindbergh

In the arts and humanities, their progressive talents are expressed well in writing, particularly poetry, and in broadcasting. In the theater, they make good character actors, and are natural mimics. Possessing an affinity for rhythm and timing, many Aquarians make fine and progressive musicians. In the service fields, they can be effective welfare workers or educators. In any endeavor, an Aquarian will always be found on the cutting edge of whatever career they choose. These are the trend setters of the zodiac, capable of seeing what is coming long before their contemporaries

Among the faults, which are typically Aquarian, are extreme eccentricity, and an unwillingness to participate in any standard of protocol. When angered, they become seriously rude, alternating between deafening silence and sudden outbursts of temper. Quite capable of sustained anger and hard feelings, they will tune out the perceived offender, and retreat to their own private world. When Aquarius is good and ready, you will be granted the honor of their company again.

In my opinion all aquarius's are just like any other zodiac sign. our main trait is serious. Thats how i live my life and ill never change i believe i could do anything because i live life barely ever having to smile. I love it.

Eh, I am always wondering where the facts are when people are trying to convince me of something. Usually all they have is opinions. <br />
<br />
I loathe working in groups because I have no issue taking damage for my own failure but I refuse to suffer because of someone else's mistakes if I do not have to.<br />
<br />
And why do people just refuse to leave you alone even when you ask politely.<br />
<br />
The stubborn is strong in me. I want what I want and if I cannot have it I want nothing. Course I would never harm or take from anyone else to get what I want, but still.<br />
<br />
And the part about getting caught up in domething other than another person is true.<br />
Seems like people just want an overbundance of affection and attention. I've been around babies who needed less attention than some adults.

You just described me. I love being Aquarius, I love being eccentric. I want people around me but I need my space too.

Wow, ..........I am am amazed........that is totally ME :)<br />
<br />
Thanks for making me like myself, after I have just said things that should make people hate me..<br />
or forgive me for.

I am Aquarius and I do enjoy my own company, never been the kind of woman that needed to have a man. I have been called strange, crazy, weird ,etc. It used to bother me a little when I was a teenager but now I rather like it. Have you noticed that 2 top talk show hosts are Aquarius - Oprah and Ellen.

I have the good "eye---hand coordination". Also, I seem to have the ability to judge a person I just met <br />
by a quick conversation and an eyeful of their outside actions. I keep it to myself though. I think it's just something aquarian's have the ability to do. One more thing.......do male aquarian's carry a wallet, or does it bother them also? It drive's me crazy to sit on one,

i have a lot of those characteristics

Thank you so much for sharing this. I loved it as an Aquarius and very much enjoyed reading it. I feel every single line struck me. (With the exception of career choice, though I do love photography)<br />
<br />
You have truely inspired me by posting this.<br />
<br />
Gratitude,<br />

I love the aquarius personality.....<br />
They love kids as well I cant remember if this was mentioned? <br />
You say they are not emotional, but they DO fall in love hard and they DO commit. How do they show their love? Are they affectionate, or do they show it in practical ways?<br />
(I'm just about to date an aquarius man):)))

It depends. They all have similar characteristics but no 2 are alike. I love my aqua Man and respect his need for space. I learned my lesson early on not to be too clingy! Even after having known him for almost a year he is still very shy, nervous and introverted around me. Yet he's a gentle soul. I wouldn't change him for anything! (but in some cases) They can seem more like friend than partner material.

wow am I 2 years late on this or what? LOL

Interesting... I have many friends who are aquarians, they all have a thirst for life and are quite outgoing, have many interests and think a lot
