Aquarius is characterized as progressive, revolutionary, inventive, and idealistic. Although the symbol is that of the Water Bearer, Aquarius is associated with the element of air, or the ethers.
Aquarius helps humanity to understand group consciousness and community. They remind us that we are all one at the core essence of our being. At the same time, Aquarius honors independence, freedom, and individuality. They teach people that you can be a unique individual and still play nicely with everyone and everything else on planet earth.
An out-of-balance Aquarius may listen to good advice while smiling, then go off and do what they please as if never hearing a word. Aquarians like to spend their time fantasizing about what can be, rather than accept what they see in front of them. As a result, they sometimes get a reputation for being a little flaky.
Aquarians cherish constant change. They'll either make constructive changes to revolutionize the world, or they can make change for the sake of change. Watch out not to stub your toe when they rearrange the furniture...yet again.
If you are in a relationship with an Aquarius, you want to establish a strong friendship with your Aquarian, but give them the space they need to express their individuality.
