So You Are An Aquarius Rising?
Original, creative and independent, you have the desire to make your own unique contribution to the world but do not like to call undue attention to yourself, as you would much rather be loved than admired, and you are very modest in the estimation of your own abilities.
Despite appearing quite revolutionary in the eyes of others, you are actually much more conservative than you care to admit and often limited by unconscious fears. Your hidden strength is the discipline that enables you to work hard behind the scenes or under the surface. You can be trusted with secrets.
Despite your modesty, can become aggressive and argumentative with regard to your pet theories and ideas and you can easily get onto a “hobby horse”. You are intellectually creative, always looking at new avenues of expression and the means to apply these. You are very much a forward thinker.
Passion in love is not one of your characteristics, as you derive your greatest pleasures from intellectual pursuits. You prefer intelligent companions with whom you can develop brother-sister relationships.
However, you have the tendency to attract passionate, more dominant people as partners. Being a very independent person, you should never allow this domination to be carried to the point of suppression.
A bit lax and impractical when it comes to money matters, you view money as a necessary evil, and as such are generous to those with less than you. This generous spirit is very often the factor that brings you good luck financially. You love the good things in life, but this appreciation is unlikely to make you greedy.
You either have a ‘group’ instinct and are the best at working in an environment where everyone works toward a common goal for the good of others, or you are a ‘loner’ and work best in privacy and seclusion. Whichever category you come under, your work (if meaningful and humanitarian in outlook) will help you to grow in a personal sense.
Much of your financial resources will be channeled into your home, as you enjoy creating a personal environment that suits your individual tastes. Your children are likely to have the intellectual ability and be nurtured in an intellectually stimulating environment full of lively discussions on multitudes of topics. You love to study, and this enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge are easily transmitted to your children, as you encourage them to grow and nurture their own individual talents.
You have difficulties dealing with emotional issues, and your sense of well-being is often dependent upon your emotional state. If nervous or upset, your stomach is likely to develop similar symptoms. You have an inner concern for matters of health and are always alert in situations of danger where accidents could occur.
Your philosophy of life is based on ‘brotherly’ love, freedom, and equality. These are the truths by which you try to live your life, often finding the need to rebel against others in order to achieve them in reality.
Aquarius Rising Personality
This individual is ruled over by the planet Uranus. Which pretty much is the planet of new ideas, creativity, and unforeseen events. This makes this individual very quirky and unique.
They see the world from the lens of a humanitarian and an adventurer.
These people try as much as they possibly can to be neutral or non-committal in a lot of things that they do. However, they are friendly, approachable, and welcoming nonetheless. In addition to those things, they also value independence a great deal. It’s the freedom to move about that they like to have in their lives. The way that they feel as though they are free to be themselves and be able to grow and flourish.
Since they can be very innovative, this spirited individual never ceases to amaze. It’s almost like they promise surprises at every turn. To everyone they come across, they don’t want to appear as being unoriginal, boring, or even just plain ordinary. They want to make an impression that they are special, and just a tad bit quirky.
There’s no doubt they’re unique. They’d benefit from being as patient and forgiving as they’d want others to be. When it comes to their views or beliefs, they can be inflexible and stubborn. If they have already made up their minds about something, they don’t listen to anyone else.

Aquarius Rising in Love
Love itself can be as vibrant and passionate for these people as anything else in this world.
To win their hearts, it’s a whole different story. The truth is, it’s not an easy task. They like to be able to connect with people intellectually. And in terms of relationships or personal matters, they have a friendly disposition but tend to be detached.
In their minds, putting distance between themselves and another person will ensure their freedom won’t be compromised.
If you’re interested in impressing and winning them over, you have to do your best not to be overly predictable. You have to be able to do something that’s going to surprise them every now and then.
Aquarius Rising in A Relationship
That’s why they do well with people that keep them on their toes and don’t plan everything to a T. For them, love means being spontaneous and impulsive. They have a wild and adventurous side to them that they want to be able to share with someone, and for that person to be the same way as them. When they’re with their significant other, they want to go out and do exciting and crazy things, not sit watching movies on the couch.
Travelling is one of their favorite things to do, and are always up to trying new things. Whether this is going on an exotic trip to Hawaii or Bora Bora. Or a sport that some people would consider risky like parasailing. The bottom line is they need a partner who keeps pace with them.
Aquarius Rising Compatibility
They usually find compatibility with somebody that’s a Leo or has a Leo influence. This works for them because sometimes they can come across as being too detached when it comes to their feelings, Leo being a fire sign can help warm them up. Leo will teach this individual to listen to their heart and emotions.
The Aquarius ascendant can teach Leo the importance of freedom and the desire to have independence. But this will work out fine because Leo we’ll also value their own time away from their partner. And there’s no doubt that they have the ability to excite and captivate the Aquarius Rising individual time and again.
