Aquarius is the Air Element of the Fixed signs. It is ruled by the planet Uranus.
Aquarius is the sign of friendship and social interactions and those born under this sign value friends above all else. They are often unusual in the way they conduct themselves and like to be recognised for their efforts. Aquarius can be radical, innovative and highly individualistic, but most of the radical ideas Aquarius has might hold social consequences. Aquarius has a detached and fair-minded view of things. It genuinely concerns itself for the good of all, not merely its own good. It is an idealistic sign, with a strong commitment to what it believes. It is unusually free of restraints imposed by the past and tradition.
The key phrase for Aquarius is “I know”. This is the sign associated with everything strange and unusual, but it also is the sign of genius.
Aquarius is humanitarian, intellectual, eccentric, unique and independent but can be detached, stubborn and snobbish.
Wherever you find Aquarius in your horoscope, you have the potential to transcend the ordinary. Aquarius is also the sign of social conscience, and this is where you are interested in making a difference.
