Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Character Traits of the
Astrological Sun Sign
Aquarius is one of the more eccentric, flexible, unusual, and avant-garde signs. Aquarius Oprah Winfrey typifies this Sun Sign, intelligent, philosophical, communicative and open-minded, she is known for her pursuit of group efforts, philanthropy, charitable efforts and love of books and reading. Aquarius natives may be perceived as odd, unusual or eccentric by others (think of Aquarians ZsaZsa Gabor and Yoko Ono). Occasionally Aquarians are perceived as "aloof" as well. That is "perceived" because Aquarians are never quite what they appear to be to others. The traditional symbol of Aquarius is "The Water Bearer", and while the sign is ruled by thoughtful air, there is a secret emotional or watery side that they like to keep hidden from public view. They are not usually emotionally sensitive, but their ability to see truth and act on it often makes them take action to help others. Aquarius may express their emotions in intellectual terms, but are often self-sacrificing humanitarians, philanthropists, constantly searching for the ideal and for truth and vision. It is important for Aquarians to develop self-love, and the personal application of spiritual practices to their daily lives.
