Aquarius- The ins and outs of the sign Aquarius

Given we are in Aquarius season, I thought it a good idea to write about my musings on Aquarius energy.

Whether it be your sun sign, moon sign or rising sign, knowing more about the drivers of this air sign may help you understand the Aquarius in your chart or those of your loved ones.

The astrological glyph for Aquarius looks like electrical currents traversing through the ether,( air) sending electric energy to where it is needed. This symbol in its own right tells us much about the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius is the last of the air signs in the zodiac and focuses less on the individual needs and more on the collective. With an extreme emphasis on socialisation, humanitarian drivers, working for the collective good, bringing tolerance and acceptance to the world and shaking up the status quo for the emergence of the new way.

This energy manifests within the individual with an Aquarius sun, moon or rising sign in various ways.

Aquarius is undoubtedly one of the most 'interesting' of all the signs as they have a penchant for the quirky, unusual, non-traditional. These people consciously or unconsciously prefer to work against the status quo and stir up the pot.

They are fundamentally looking out for the underdog, the disenfranchised and work to change the 'system' for the betterment of all of humanity.

They are the rebels, the people who will not settle for things as they have always been. Even if working in a very conservative environment, the Aquarian will ask the question 'why do we do it this way?' and come up with original ideas, flashes of insights to motivate forward moving change.

The Aquarian mind is quite brilliant, fast, astute and able to make connections to ideas. They initiate original thoughts, and set the seeds for change in society, business practice, or traditional family structures.

When young, Aquarians may well have felt very different from their peer group, like they don't quite fit in, but when older it becomes essential to not be like everyone else and this gives them their sense of pride and purpose. As they grow as a person, the Aquarian is likely to go out of their way to be different and unconventional.

Settling for societies' norms' does not sit well with Aquarian energy. Their nature needs freedom, freedom to express, freedom to move and space to change. Aquarians can not stay in one place for too long, they, in fact, thrive on change and will often be seen instigating change just for change's sake. This is because they can be easily bored and need constant stimulation. However, over stimulation is not good for anyone, and one of Aquarius s most significant challenges is learning to 'be' to relax and learn to go with the flow. Easier said than done, however.

These guys are known to stir things up just for the sake of it, and will often play out the part of the rebel or protagonist in a group situation primarily to feed their need to challenge the status quo and encourage others to do the same.

Aquarius rules technology, science, inventions, all tools that help the collective discover new and exciting ways of moving forward.

The Aquarian appeal is finding new ways to access information that can motivate change and hopefully, a better world. As a fixed air sign, they are often found buried in the back end of a new software system, teaching others on the latest technology applications or inventing the next 'gadget' that can change the world. They have incredibly inventive ideas and will be the first to tell you of a new and better way to do something.

Aquarians collect people, and pride themselves on having a diverse, often eclectic and unusual group of friends or' tribes' to which they feel incredibly connected. They are at their best when they think they are with like-minded people' and often prefer the company of the collective, the group, their friends than that of one on one close and intimate relationships.

Often Aquarian can appear aloof, disconnected and not overly attached; this is primarily due to the fact that they prefer to exist in their head more than in the feeling or emotional nature.

They often feel more comfortable within groups and friends than intimate relationships that may place restrictions on them. They need freedom, which is never more evident than when in intimate relationships. If they can find someone who supports their need for freedom and independence, they are very capable of close relationships. Still, the relationship may be more like 'best friends' than the intensity of some other relationships. When they do, connect to their hearts and marry their head and heart in a passion project, they can become incredibly powerful.
