I'm An Aquarius

Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even if they do not accept it themselves. They obey the Quaker exhortation to "Be open to truth, from whatever source it comes," and are prepared to learn from everyone.

Both types are humane, frank, serious minded, genial, refined, sometimes ethereal, and idealistic, though this last quality is tempered with a sensible practicality. They are quick, active and persevering without being self-assertive, and express themselves with reason, moderation and sometimes, a dry humor.

They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Many are strongly imaginative and psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to begin, is much anticipated by psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life. On the other hand it can help the many who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the universal recognition of the brotherhood of man, and to embark on scientific research to fulfill their philanthropic ideals of benefiting mankind. When some cause or work of this nature inspires them, they are capable of such devotion to it that they may drive themselves to the point of exhaustion and even risk injuring their health.

Both types need to retire from the world at times and to become temporary loners. They appreciate opportunities for meditation or, if they are religious, of retreats. Even in company they are fiercely independent, refusing to follow the crowd. They dislike interference by others, however helpfully intended, and will accept it only on their own terms. Normally they have good taste in drama, music and art, and are also gifted in the arts, especially drama.

In spite of the often intensely magnetic, forthcoming and open personality of the more extrovert kind of Aquarian, and of their desire to help humanity, neither type makes friends easily. They sometimes appear to condescend to others and take too little trouble to cultivate the acquaintance of people who do not particularly appeal to them.

They do not give themselves easily - perhaps their judgment of human nature is too good for that - and are sometimes accounted cold. But once they decide that someone is worthy of their friendship or love, they can exert an almost hypnotic and irresistible mental attraction on them and will themselves become tenacious friends or lovers, ready to sacrifice everything for their partners and be faithful to them for life. However, they are sometimes disappointed emotionally because their own high personal ideals cause them to demand more of others than is reasonable. And if they are deceived their anger is terrible. If disillusioned, they do not forgive.

Aquarians work best in group projects, provided that they are recognized as having a leading part in them. They have a feeling of unity with nature and a desire for knowledge and truth that makes them admirable scientists, especially astronomers and natural historians. They may excel in photography, radiography, electronics - anything connected with the electrical and radio industries - aviation and everything technical. On the arts and humanities side their progressive tendencies can be expressed in writing, especially poetry, and broadcasting, or as welfare workers and teachers. Some have gifts as entertainers and make good character actors (having an ability to mimic) and musicians. The more psychic among them possess healing gifts, especially in curing the mentally sick.

Among the faults to which they are liable are fanatical eccentricity, wayward egotism, excessive detachment and an inclination to retreat from life and society, and a tendency to be extremely dogmatic in their opinions. Aquarians can be a threat to all they survey or a great boon for humanity in general. Circumstances - for example, continuous opposition to a cause they hold dear - may cause the atrophy of the openness of mind that is one of the Aquarian's most attractive traits. They may express a lack of integrity in broken promises, secretiveness or cunning. Simmering anger and resentment, rudeness or, worse, a tense, threatening silence which may suddenly burst out in eruptions of extreme temper, these are all part of the negative side of the Aquarian. This can also reveal itself in a sustained hatred for enemies that is capable of enlarging itself into a misanthropy toward the whole of mankind.

Amazing isn't! I'm an Aquarius an tht explains me right down the line :)

I am Aquarius too that pretty much sums me up.

I hear that Ms C

"They have a feeling of unity with nature and a desire for knowledge"
"Even in company they are fiercely independent, refusing to follow the crowd."
Those things sound like you.

lol

That is soooo true. I've been disappointed many times.

Im a Sagittarius.... Means that me and you would be the best of friends!! (we get along very well)

This is a fantastic relationship! Some sites will say even the best. I am currently exploring an Aquarian connection and the chemistry is amazing! We get along so well, it feels like soul mates! I know that some sites say Libra is the best match for Aquarius or even Gemini, but my mom is a Libra (so I know that personality) and after awhile I think that relationship will get boring. I have two Aquarian male friends. They both married Libras. One married two different Libras and the other married one. Three divorces... I think Libras get tired of the Aquarian aloofness after awhile and although they match intellectually they don't really understand Aquarius. You have to understand an Aquarian man to make it work, and of course I am biased but think we do it best! We are not just intellectual, creative and social which are some of Libra's and Gemini's traits, but great in bed and fun too! We keep the relationship light, spontaneous and love our freedom as much as Aquarius so the combination works well!!! Very well for a long term commitment! So nothing against Libra or Gemini, but if you are a Sagittarius or an Aquarian don't shy away from the Sagittarius/Aquarius girl or guy or this combination! It could be the best thing that happens to your life!

Awesome !!

Enjoyed, obviously I'm an Aquarian

:)

Lol I read the first statement where it said they fall into two categories, then laughed because I fall into both depending on the day :P

Ha! Same here...although I'm almost never exhibitionist.

Lol, I didn't interpret it that way until I looked up the "actual" definition on google, I took it as "show off ish" and the center of attention (which means pretty much the same thing, apart from it being sexual) :P

PROUD AQUARIAN!

BRAVO BRAVO!
