The main objective of the people born under this Sign Aquarius, which is the 11th in the Zodiac calendar, is to improve the world around them and make it a better place to live in. They are humanitarian people in the true sense of the word. These progressive-minded individuals, who follow their intuition and are quick to involve others in their efforts to improve the world, tend to make many friends.
Though they can be cold and unemotional at times, they have a keen sense of justice, and can be mercilessly unbiased. Modern and practical, they love freedom and action, thought and life, and can be great inventors. They are sometimes called eccentrics as they keep changing their views and ideas. They cannot relate to people who do not think like them.
Compassionate, sensitive, intelligent, affectionate and yet aloof, these people are very intuitive. They guard their personal space so carefully that sometimes it is difficult for others to get close to them. Thereby, they can end up being very lonely people. The Aquarius-born are admirers of beauty, and are attractive and gentle people. Their unconventional thinking and creativity may often manifest in their strange and unpredictable behavior. They are forever looking to expand their horizons of knowledge, and their analytical minds also draw them towards science and invention. Though not easily agitated, as they are patient and persevering, the Aquarius-born people are not open to changing their opinions easily. The Aquarius-born can go on to become exceptional scientists and doctors, as they have the ability to analyse and concentrate for long hours. They can also do well in artistic pursuits. Law is another field they can pursue and find expected success. Financial matters never make them worried or anxious. As they often indulge in charity, they are likely to suffer serious financial losses. The Aquarius love their personal freedom and will not tolerate anyone who tries to snatch their space. However, the ones that they do let into their space find them to be very interesting and charming people. Those who fall in love with an Aquarius are most likely to share his/ her artistic and intellectual interests. They like to make everything perfect for their partner. Their approach to love and marriage is logical and intellectual, therefore loving with the mind is their way of being in a relationship. They are accommodating, will compromise and adapt to the nature of their partner. Aquarius-Aquarius, Aquarius-Gemini and Aquarius-Libra make good life partners.
Aquarius Moon is very observant. They love to study human nature and analyze why everyone around them acts the way they do. They are often shy themselves, and may appear a bit detached. If you sit down and talk with an Aquarius Moon, they will probably tell you that they always felt “different” when they were growing up. While they can be sociable, at heart they would rather be on their own. They may have a strong ego, and they’ll do their level best to be unusual. It is not their lot to be mainstream or “fit in.” They can be idealistic and progressive, but they pretend that jealousy, fear and possessiveness don’t exist… that they are somehow above such petty emotions. This may make them appear distant and emotionally unavailable. They can be very stubborn about getting their way. As they get older, they learn to handle themselves better. They feel a strong need for independence at any age. They take great pride in their family, and will often brag of their accomplishments. With their desire to shock those around them, if they grew up in a more conservative household, they will be bragging about how they changed that.
Moon in Aquarius may be prone to temper tantrums when young, even though as they grow they end up feeling that emotions are “messy.” While they can be so good at understanding others’ motivations and behaviors, they often lose touch with their own. This happens because they get too caught up in what they want to achieve rather than what is reality. In the days of Aquarius we want more internal freedom and emancipation. Emotions come alive; they begin to manifest themselves openly and freely. At this point we cannot bear the slightest pressure on ourselves. Internal independence – that’s what the main value becomes for us.
Now we want to pamper ourselves – buy an extra bottle of perfume or something tasty. And we can easily allow ourselves to do it. We want something new, we can easily commit the unexpected actions of some people, in the days of Aquarius we can expect from the others all sorts of quirks.
The main thing these days – not to indulge in anarchy, not to shock people around, trying to assert yourself in your own eyes and wanting to show everyone your freedom and independence. In the days of Aquarius all kinds of reforms are working well, all kinds of experiments and the riskiest projects will go smoothly. Successfully will be implemented all kinds of unexpected ideas and innovations. So it is possible to risk – the risk is justified now. Some people may have a good luck in gambling and lotteries. In these days it is better to see as much people as possible, spend time with friends, colleagues and relatives – a quiet time-spending at home will only make you bored and tired.
The moon is visiting Uranus and Saturn in the sign of the Air. Therefore, moon in Aquarius gives the perception of everything that is associated with freedom, spiritual growth, the unions of people that are close in spirit, the perception of everything new, strange and unusual. The Lunar Aquarius has an intrinsic need for freedom. Freedom can be interpreted in two ways: “freedom for” – which is a Leo’s priority, and “freedom from” – the main idea of Aquarius. “Freedom” – is independence. A person with his moon in Aquarius does not like to give any commitments; he will most likely avoid situations that would limit his freedom. Any situation where it may appear some limitation, is unpleasant for the Lunar Aquarius, and he is dreaming to arrange his life so, that he could be free from everything. This person does not tolerate any intrusion into his private world. Saturn is always a dedicated opposition.
Moon in Aquarius gives faithfulness in friendship, but friendship at a distance. Here we must remember that Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn, which is giving one hand, the selected position (“this is the distance – do not to approach any closer”), and on the other hand, is strengthening the relationships. The connection of spiritual intimacy comes through Uranus, and Saturn gives Lunar Aquarius the strength of that relationship and the distance – simultaneously. In this case, the one with his moon in Aquarius has the impersonal friendly attitude to all people. Such a person can be very paradoxical; here you will see a combination of altruism and self-centeredness. Uranus gives Lunar Aquarius sort of a strange behavior. As long as Uranus is a planet that gives coups and surprises, the inner world of this person is unstable; he is prone to the sudden changes. Therefore, he often will have a mood swings, and for no apparent reason. Here we will always observe moodiness, eccentric character, and a permanent commitment to everything new, love for inventions. Aquarius Moon Sign person is kind and compassionate, though it may tend to be shown more as a broad philosophy rather than in actual actions. While they may seem aloof, in fact they enjoy the eccentricities of those around them, and they feel confident in giving their partners a lot of freedom. Their optimism and friendliness helps them attract lots of friends. When they are unhappy, they tend to focus on their activities to such an extent that those around them have difficulty figuring out that something is wrong.
Aquarius Moon is an intellectual that is both intense and intuitive. They love all aspects of freedom, both on a personal level as well as in the wider sense for humanity. They can work long hours to support a cause they believe in. Playful and childlike, they can have a great sense of humor, but they must be cautious they don’t inadvertently hurt an other’s feelings while trying to be funny. They are great dreamers, preferring to keep their head in the clouds at times. Aquarius Moon can be unreliable about the little details in life, but they are seldom flaky. They are usually loyal and trustworthy and make terrific friends. Criticism can make them stop in their tracks and dig in their heels like a donkey. They expect to be accepted just as they are, even when they are wildly unpredictable. Their charm makes it difficult to remain angry with them for long. The humanistic Aquarius – moons are freedom – loving, original and very empathic in human relationships. Social commitment and the strive for justice take an important place in their live and often make them reformers or revolutionaries. Their personal freedom is always of utmost importance to them. There are only few Aquarius – moons dressed ordinarily, living in common departments or having “normal” hobbies. Neither have they felt inclined to “normal” professions. Aquarius – moons enjoy distinguishing themselves from their environment. With originality and creativity they apply their artistic talents. They have an instinct for new trends and often turn out to be the trendsetters in society. They are emotionally introverted and often still have to learn to express their feelings. Although being very sociable sometimes they stay lonely inside.
