"I innovate and awaken."

Aquarius Sign

Uranus: I innovate and awaken.

In astrology, Aquarius, the eleventh sign of the zodiac, usually rules the period between 20 January and 18 February. I say usually because in some years these dates can shift by one day.

The water carrier represented by Aquarius is Ganimedes, a handsome Phrygian youth. Ganimedes was the son of King Trues of Troy and was spotted by Zeus while tending his father's flocks on the mountain. The King of the Gods fell in love with him. A large bird flew to the mountain, probably in the form of an eagle, and flew him to the skies. He has been serving the gods ever since.

The soul saturated with Capricorn in human matters is now endeavouring to proclaim the collective sphere and to transmit knowledge for its own freedom. Aquarius is fixed and has the element of air. Its colours are silver and blue and its tarot card is the star. Its motto is 'I know'.

In medical astrology, Aquarius rules the ankles. Negative effects can cause health problems, bone fractures, tendon rupture in this area.

The most important power of Aquarius is its intelligence and objectivity. Members of this sign are very prone to abstract thinking, which allows them to examine problems and find new solutions.

Although they are talkative and sociable, they can operate in their communities in an observant and impartial manner. This makes them typically good judges of people.

They are very reliable when rationality is needed. As a fixed sign, the Aquarius definitely has a stubborn streak. Once this sign makes up its mind, there is no turning back. Aquarius's stubbornness can get him into trouble from time to time.

When he is committed to a new system or approach, it can be difficult for him to look at a situation from a different perspective. Aquarius stubbornness stems from strong and true beliefs. Nevertheless, when it decides to change, it does not go back.

As equality is very important to these water carriers, they enjoy teamwork and joining communities of like-minded individuals. Their strong mental capacity can lead them to be overly intellectual in life, making them appear cold, distant or callous. Therefore, they may encounter situations that they cannot get out of, which may be confusing for them.

Intelligent witty Aquarians can be sarcastic towards others whom they consider to be intellectually inferior. They may need to curb their habits of sharp-tonguedness and gossiping. Aquarius can be cold-blooded and restrained in their own emotions, but forget that they can hurt others.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, symbolising innovation, technology and surprising events. Uranus complements the unconventional nature of this visionary air sign, perfectly reflecting the Aquarian's idiosyncratic attitude. Aquarians think big, but they should not forget their immediate surroundings. These water-bearers can be so busy with reforms that they neglect their family and friends. And they can gain a reputation for being distant in relationships.

They should remember that progress always begins at the micro level and advocate empathy and compassion wherever possible.
