The true spiritual reason for the present chaos and unrest,
is that the new wine of the spirit cannot be contained in the outworn bottles of Pisces.
The impulse in the heart of humanity is rising to burst the old shackles and bondage.
Aquarius has an important message of brothely kindness (humanity) and
consideration for the needs of others. Awareness of unchanging enduring spiritual reality
underlying all material existence. Aquarian heart centre ruled opp. Leo -
cool mind balanced by human warmth of loving heart. Intuition awakens and ability to sense
heavenly truth formerly concealed from souls intellectual arrogance. Divine faculty and realise
beyond any shadow of doubt love can carry soul through all danger. Things of the spirit found
in warm, simple ways of life, love and human kindness, consideration and forebearance to one
another, tranquil assurance of love and immortality of the soul. An Aquarian
who has found living water and can bring these gifts to heal, comfort and
sustain humanity, shows the brotherhood of heart which brings to the world the beauty
and harmony of the Aquarian age.
Conventional Planetary Astrology impression of Aquarians:
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, and its symbol is the Water-bearer. Aquarius is an Air sign, independent and unorthodox.
Aquarians are the born eccentrics of the zodiac. Born under the influence of the planet of change, Uranus, Aquarians live in the future. They are intellectually independent and tend to have little patience with those who either wish to make them conform, or simply don't understand their radical ideas. Aquarians frequently argue for the sake of intellectual exercise, though if they have an opinion, they will defend it staunchly to the point where they will simply ignore the opposing arguments.
This is not to say Aquarians are anti-social. Quite the opposite. Aquarians hold brotherhood and fraternity nearly as important as intellectual ideas, and constantly crave the stimulation of people. They are humanitarians and their thoughts constantly delve into the welfare of mankind. They are dreamers and idealists and often come up with schemes to save the world. All of this dreaming takes its toll, though, and many an Aquarian has known the sting of disillusionment with the real world.
Aquarians tend to spend so much time in the clouds that often they are perceived as aloof and detached. They would rather dream up grand solutions to the problems of mankind that to involve themselves in the boring details. Their great weakness is their tendency to find faults in others, while taking for granted their own shortcomings. Their calmness is also deceptive, concealing great bouts of mental anxiety.
When down to earth, however, Aquarians are amongst the kindest people in the zodiac. They are easygoing, reasonable, and never boring. So long as they are given the freedom to be themselves, they can be the most entertaining and loyal companions.
It would be unkind to say they were just like butterflies, flitting from
one thing to another. Great transforming powers.
