AQUARIUS: THE GREAT TOLERATOR OF THE ZODIAC


The following words are just some of the words associated with the sign of Aquarius: freethinking, friendly, cooperator, philanthropist, humanitarian, idealist. progressive and reformer. On January 20, 2017 the Sun was officially in the sign of Aquarius. It was also the date that the new president of the United States was inaugurated. We can only hope that the positive expression of those words will somehow be absorbed into the consciousness of the newly elected president. This is all I will say on this subject.




Aquarius is the most tolerant sign of the zodiac. They are fascinated by and appreciate the differences in world surrounding them whether it be career choices, art, or sexual persuasion.  In short, individuality in all its forms. In my experience I have found this sign to be exceptionally cooperative as long as the issue at hand is presented intelligently. For instance it should be no secret to anybody who has any relationship with this sign that they are very smart, in fact smarter than most of the other 11 signs of the zodiac.  However, before we put this brilliant eccentric on a pedestal, patience which we all know is a virtue, appears to have escaped this sign, particularly when it comes to dealing with ordinary mortals. This is especially noticeable by their sudden display of irritation if they have to wait more than 2 seconds for anything like a cell phone pick-up, an answer to any question, or a late night pizza delivery. Uranus, Aquarius's ruling planet is the cause.  I know this because I have, like so many other astrologers a close relationship to this unpredictable planet.



Maybe that's why I always need to know where the exit is while attending a lecture, wedding, movie, play, concert or friendly gathering.  People bestowed with Uranian energy are notorious for getting bored.  They always need an escape route. Aquarian's need for change is undiluted though compared to their astro-cousins (Moon in Aquarius, Uranus on Ascendant, Sun conjunct Uranus etc.)  Sun sign Aquarian's, simply embody their coolness, need for distance, space, and experimentation. They can really let their freak flag fly, except of course if they have strong Saturn influences in their charts, then their conservative side can become extreme.  Uranus rules extremes and nothing is more tight-assed than an Aquarian gone over to the right.  



Whether conservative or liberal this sign is very friendly.  They do friends really well.  All of them enjoy hanging with their mates and co-workers and will know every one of them by name.  Just don't try to engage them in a conversation about how you just had to put down your precious dog or cat that you've had since childhood or your recent painful breakup.  This kind of talk makes their brain scramble for a good excuse to split.  If you want to feel like your living alone marry an Aquarius.Their brilliance lies in social activities, humanitarian and philanthropic concerns, political movements, science and engineering.  They are best at giving themselves up for causes that help the greater good because their ability to detach their emotions for the causes they espouse helps them achieve goals rather than drown in a pool of feelings which can render them ineffective. 
If you want to stay in a relationship with this sign and need cuddle time, it will be like trying to make an apple into an orange.  Accept them for the unique and original person they are and just keep inventing new and unexplored activities to enjoy together.  It will keep him or her interested for a lifetime.

Apples and oranges is right--I have my own issues with an Aquarius--but I still love them

I hope anytime I am interacting with an Aquarius you'll remind me I didn't do anything wrong, they are just cold as ice! Thanks for another accurate and humorous portrait!
