The Eccentric Aquarius: Why Are They So Different?

Personality Traits of Aquarius Zodiac Sign

Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac. It is ruled by both Uranus (according to Western Astrology) and Saturn (according to Vedic Astrology). The symbol of Aquarius is a Water Bearer-a person pouring water from an urn. This clearly depicts the Aquarian tendency to gather knowledge and to pass it on to others regardless of whether the people are willing to acknowledge it or not. The water bearer is symbolic of the Aquarian propensity and willingness to share their wisdom, advice, and knowledge to anyone who needs it. Aquarius is a fixed air sign and it rules the 11th house of the kundali.

The Airy & Fixed Aquarian

Despite the symbol being water bearer, Aquarius is not a water sign. This is the most common misconception about the Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign. Along with the Aquarius, Gemini and Libra are also air signs. People born into air sign are deemed highly intelligence. These people?s mind is always thinking, racing and is very busy being busy. The air signs tend to think deeply about one thing or another. These people are quite theoretical and often think before acting.

Air in astrology symbolizes intellect. Being an air sign, Aquarians are smart thinkers and are also fond of abstract reasoning. These people love to analyze, synthesize and probe. Air signs also symbolize communication. Aquarians are excellent communicators. They love to say what they are thinking. They are alert, curious and perceptive of others around them and often show a humanitarian side to others.

As an air sign, the Aquarius find comfort and feel at home in the vast mental fields where they can think and create. Abstract reasoning is their greatest strength, Aquarians find it easier to concentrate on things that are otherworldly or rather abstract. Since we all know the air is always moving and thus are the tendencies of the Aquarius to learn constantly and quench their curiosity.
