Aquarius is the Fixed Air of the zodiac, with the sign of the Water Bearer. Aquarians are the revolutionaries of the zodiac. They want to do it better than it’s ever been done before. There has to be a way to make all of it work together. They see all the moving parts of a situation and want them to be in harmony.
Aquarius is the first one to hop on board for a different, more innovative approach. Aquarian are often painfully aware of the shortfalls of society and push themselves to do better than the status quo. They know there are solutions that heal humanity as a whole, and they are willing to pursue them, even if it’s a long way in coming. They know that life takes hard work, but without a proper ideal to motivate them, hard work becomes nearly impossible.
These people live for the cause. An Aquarius without a purpose is lost. Even a lost cause is better than none. For their self-confidence and mental health to be at its peak though, the Aquarian needs to feel like they can and will make a difference. Making a difference is the highest form of motivation for a true Aquarius soul.
Aquarius people are so in touch with the needs of the world that sometimes they lose sight of their immediate needs or become hypercritical of the world around them. When Aquarius people experience deep paradigm shifts, it will inspire them to new heights, but they need to grieve the loss of their old way and hold compassion for themselves. They can become highly self-critical if they feel like they were wrong or led astray. They are not critical people on the whole, but they see the way things could be and that the need for change is so great. Sometimes they can become impatient with themselves or the world. Aquarius has to remember that the bigger the change, the longer it takes, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Every action in the right direction, no matter how small, is contributing to the bigger picture.
