Aquarius Traits and Aquarius Personality
Webster’s dictionary describes the word ” idiosyncrasy ” as a ” peculiarity of constitution or temperament; an individualizing characteristic or quality.” Idiosyncrasy is what the Aquarian is all about. They are idealists and are the humanitarians of the zodiac. They have an innate ability to understand human nature.
Aquarius is the third air sign and it is this that gives them their idealistic and humanitarian concern for all mankind. They are ruled by the 11th House which is the House of Friends, Hopes and Aspirations. It rules groups, humanitarianism and philanthropic ideals. It also describes personal hopes and dreams.
These Uranians are by nature very practical people and it is the sign of genius. They are the scientific thinkers of all the signs because of their objectivity and do not let emotions or feelings cloud their thinking. They live and breathe in the abstract dimension and they are always analyzing situations, people, ideas etc. They are much more comfortable in groups of people rather than one on one. The freedom loving Aquarian is always looking into the future. Aquarius represents mankind’s ” truest hopes and deepest ideals.” They refuse to conform to mankind’s conventional ideas and love to shock you. They will rebel just for the fun of it.
While they are friends with everyone, Aquarians have an eccentric instability and can seem at times cold and detached. They are more comfortable in best friend relationship with their loved one and find it hard to express their feelings, and, they don’t want their partners making heavy emotional demands upon them. They don’t like that word commitment and will avoid it.
Uranians are very independent folks but yet have a strange tendency to go into hibernation every so often. They like and need their solitude. They don’t stay gone long and it’s no use in trying to coax them out of their hiding, they’ll come out when they’re good and ready to.
If someone tries to manipulate them they’re going to see just how obstinate and stubborn Aquarians can be. They have a live and let live attitude towards others and believe that individuality should be respected. You could say Aquarians are ahead of their time. If a partner does not stir their intellect they soon become quite bored and off they go in search of another friend with whom they can relate with.
Uranus gives Aquarius an intuition that leans in on psychic abilities. They seem to have a sense of knowledge without having to look for it. They believe in violent change and revolutions but you will not see the Aquarian lifting up a sword to do battle. They leave that to the other signs more willing to take up arms. They want to think and reason why this revolution and change is taking place.
