Aquarius-The Maverick

"Refuse to be ordinary"

A birth chart is made up of 12 astrological houses, and while there are different systems that divide the houses up in different ways, your birth chart is never without any of the signs, just like it’s never without any of the houses. This means you embody all 12 signs (energies/modalities) even if you do not have any planets in that sign. Understanding how any of thee 12 zodiac signs work alongside your Big Three (sun, moon and rising) can help you to make more sense of your chart as a whole.

The word 'Aquarius' means water-carrier in Latin. In Babylonian astrology, the sign Aquarius was called the 'Great One' and associated with the god Ea who was commonly depicted holding an overflowing vase. The Sun passed through this sign during the time of year of annual floods and so was sometimes associated with destructive flooding. In Greek mythology, the sign was known as the water pitcher, from which a stream poured through. In modern symbology, Aquarius is represented by the water bearer. The flow of water represents the force that sustains life and quenches thirst for a connection with Spirit. Aquarius is a symbolized by a 'tapped in' person who is able to be a vessel for the 'water' of understanding to their community. Cafe astrology describes Aquarius:


Thought of as rational, social, and intellectual. People with this sign are naturally friendly, communicative, and analytical. Their curiosity makes them excellent students, and most continue to self-educate long after they've completed formal schooling. They love keeping up-to-date with their friends, but need to be mindful to carve out time for quiet reflection, and avoid overstimulation, anxiety, or insomnia.
