Aquarius is considered to be the most eccentric, weird, quirky and original of all signs. For many Aquarians it is hard to relate to Aquarius stereotypes: they portray a character which is hardly human. As an air sun myself i remembered having hard times finding myself in the Astrology descriptions of my sign; the same happened to one of my best friends, an Aquarius (also air sign). Astrologers usually talk about our brains and need to talk, communicate and transfer ideas, as if we were some kind of robots. Even lovely Libra, the third air sign of the zodiac, is being portrayed often in Astrology as a cold, calculated person.
But Aquarius definitely suffers from the worst public relations. In this post I would like to talk about Aquarius as a human, and try to explain their real traits that make them the unique people they are.
Aquarius people have data in their minds. They relate to the world through processing and consuming it in pieces of knowledge, information: data. it doesn’t mean Aquarius people don’t have feelings, it only means they treat and process their own feelings as another piece of information they have. that is why so often they might become overwhelmed by their own feeling, an episode that usually ends up with some alone-time.
This trait also causes them often to sound like they are sunk in details and can’t tell important and relevant data from pieces of information they have just collected along the way. It is a common thing talking to an Aquarius about a problem they have, having them sharing all of a sudden a fact that you totally don’t understand its relation to the subject. That is why they give the impression of being weird and eccentric -While in fact, they are having in front of them a lot of data, in a way that makes it hard to tell which one is relevant and which one is less relevant to the topic (that is why the get along so well with Geminis who tell them the facts apart from each other and take all the details into a nice structured logical story). This trait also makes them a very good advisers for others, where feelings are coming on the way of finding a solution for a problem and shouldn’t be taken into account.
For the same reason it is very hard for an Aquarius to make a decision. They can function bravely and admirably in a crisis but if they have time they will take it to consider the pros and cons of every situation, and to weigh all the tiny details that may affect their choice. That is also related to them being a Fixed Sign.
In a relationship, Aquarius people are as stubborn as notorious Taurus. They have their own way, which is usually the way that is best for everyone and for the greater good – and they won’t compromise it no matter what. Unlike Pisces, who also tend to see the general situation and outcome of their own private deeds and decisions, Aquarius are not flexible and won’t adjust themselves to changing circumstances. As a fix sign they tend to preserve things, relationships and even status quos and situations, and as an analytical, highly moral sign they know what is best for everyone.
Being so generalizing in their point of view, it is easier for them to move on where others might have stopped. That is how they find themselves in weird situations during their lives. They need to have friends who will accept and understand their unusual life experiences and ideas. friends ARE, ad astrologers usually emphasize, very important to Aquarius people.
