No matter society changes from time to time, it always exists one trend: people usually seek similarities. As we have been taught in our genetic, most of the people have gathered together as a group for better survival. It always exists the minorities who are “special” individuals. They are brave to stand out plus stand aside from the crowd. They really don’t care other’s saying when they do something not familiar to the rest. They are proud to be “special”!
That is the pride of all Aquarians!
Aquarian people, who are Aquarius man and Aquarius woman, are not about the species under the water, but the Western Astrology. They are the human individual who is born under Aquarius Horoscope.
Aquarius Sign Bio
- The Sun moves to Aquarius Horoscope around January 21st to February 19th of every normal Western Calendar year. -> The time accuracy plus-minus one or day days depend on the geography.
2. Aquarius Horoscope is the fixed quality-> it means once Aquarian wants to do something, it’s usually fixed ideas regardless the quality of that idea-> in simple words, Aquarians don’t care if their ideas, their thinking patterns, their behaviors are popular, conventional, widely accepted or not.
3. The Ruler Planet: in the ancient Astrology, Saturn is dominant. With modern knowledge, Uranus remains as the main ruler for Aquarius Horoscope.
Uranus is the modern ruling planet of Aquarius and is exalted in Scorpio. In classical Greek mythology, Uranus is the personification of the sky. The planet Uranus is very unusual among the planets in that it rotates on its side so that it presents each of its poles to the Sun in turn during its orbit; causing both hemispheres to alternate between being bathed in light and lying in total darkness over the course of the orbit.
Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun, spending about 7 years in each sign of the zodiac. Uranus was discovered to be a planet only in 1781 by Sir William Herschel.
Astrological interpretations associate Uranus with the principles of ingenuity, new or unconventional ideas, individuality, discoveries, electricity, inventions, democracy, and revolutions. Uranus, among all planets, most governs genius.
Conflict: Why Aquarius Horoscope is the Air Sign, not “water”?
First at all, take a look at the original Aquarius Symbol! It has two kinds: One is the icon look like the water wave with a double line.
Another is the image of a man who is holding a vase. His action is pouring the water from the vase.
Here is the first reason for your misunderstanding: it’s about the name of Horoscope. The English word “Aquarius” derives from the Latin Alphabet system. As it’s the root language, the prefix “Aqua-” usually means something involves the water such as seafood, Poseidon GOD, cruise, etc. -> therefore, without Western Astrology, many English speakers will assume Aquarius is a species that lives underwater or at least something has the associate with water.
-> this is just one fact about Aquarius Horoscope-> AQUARIUS HOROSCOPE IS THE AIR ELEMENT!!!
Another reason for misunderstanding: the Aquarius’s image symbol – a water bearer man. Water is NOT the thing we should focus
-> We should emphasis the action-> Aquarius symbol represents
- The knowledge of management, carry-on (not wet the hand)
- The generous volunteer offers the water to others. ( you know how important water)
Now is the whole meaning of Aquarius’ symbol:
We will analyze from inside to out.-> you have been misunderstood Aquarius Horoscope with something watery-> so we can start with the water inside.
The water, in Western Astrology knowledge, represents for the human emotions and feelings-> It doesn’t have a specific shape like water. It varies up and down -> form into a mood like the ocean wave.
-> the water is stored in a vase-> it tells that our human usually keeps the emotions and feeling deep inside
-> and then the action of Aquarius: pouring the water out the vase-> it means for the Aquarius Horoscope function and talent-> Aquarians can use the intelligence, the knowledge to “guide” the emotions and feeling of someone to outside. -> it has one more meaning: the self Aquarian can control the emotions and feelings over the intellegence-> their choices usually prefer to the knowledge and the brain over the heart.
Aquarius Horoscope Mythology
The Greek astrological poet Manilius, writing in the first century AD (Astronomica 5:487) described Aquarius as Ganymede, a beautiful boy whom even Jupiter found attractive. In the form of an eagle (memorialized by the nearby constellation of Aquila,) Jupiter abducted Ganymede to Mount Olympus and appointed him cup bearer to the gods
As you can read, Aquarius’s Greek (Olympia) Mythology is totally unique and feel more “human” than 11 Zodiac Mythologies. It doesn’t have the battlefield, the memorial, the grant becoming the stars. It’s an honor individual human who can serve the Gods.
Under Babylonian Mythology, Aquarius is “named the constellation Gula, The Great One, and associated his water vases with the rains that caused the annual flooding of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers and the irrigation of agricultural fields”
Comparing to Ancient Egyptians, Aquarius equals with Nile River god Hapi.
Even with the Early Christian Era, they believe Aquarius symbols for the John Baptist.
Some core Aquarius characteristics
Aquarius Horoscope is one special Zodiac because it has remarkable differences between each Aquarian individual. I mention the characteristics-> Even two people share the Sun Aquarius, but their own characters are very unique.
There only three core things about Aquarius Horoscope you will notice on each Aquarian:
- Friendly but weird
- The Uniqueness, the specialty and the weirdness
I have met two Aquarians until now. One is an Aquarian lady who is my University classmate when I’m still in the born country. Another is the Aquarian co-worker in the Seattle area. -> I notice that both of them are friendly at the first meet-> However, it still exists the invisible distance. -> it’s understandable because we are still a stranger back then. -> After 1 to 2 years studying together, working together, both Aquarians still keep the distance. Therefore, the Aquarius people network is small-> they choose friends by quality instant quantity. -> If you have a chance to meet close-friend of Aquarius individual, you will see their “class” kind of similar to each other.
The reason is about Aquarius’ second core characteristic. All Aquarians emphases independence. They want to have some “air” which means freedom. They choose to do it by their own selves first-> Unless it’s over Aquarian’s ability, they will ask some help. -> they respect you, so you should respect their own.
Last is the Aquarius’ uniqueness… It’s a little hard to explain because you won’t see anything like that before. The Aquarius symbol retrieves a little bit about this character. All Aquarians will definitely provide some new ideas-> those ideas are special because they are refresh because they derive from one completely undiscovered angle, unconventional perspective. Those ideas will look new and little “weird” based on the common standard-> However, people don’t look deeper. All ideas from Aquarian people have the principal. They apply, practice some basic knowledge-> they create the new look-> that is why all Aquarius people are creative. Plus, their creation is a whole new level where it comes from the new and unknown sources.
