ARCHETYPES AND ROLES
The Humanitarian, the Detached Observer, the Inventor, the Scientist, the Friend, the Eccentric, the Revolutionary, the Anarchist.
As the sign of the humanitarian, your emblem is the Water Bearer, who perpetually dispenses to all. The water represents life force and spiritual energy currents. Being eccentric and innovative, you challenge the status quo. Your skill as an armchair psychologist and loyal friend wins you admiration and a wide social circle.
"I Know" is your signature phrase. The Water Bearer's symbolism reaches out to all. The epic of Gilgamesh from Babylonia and Deucalion from Greek myth show how the past is swept away as water annihilates it for the sake of new growth. This constant flowing promises that growth to overcome stagnation is your spiritual awakening.
Aquarius is assertive, independent, progressive, analytical, original and inventive, has strong dislikes and firm opinions.
Aquarius is the sign of the future, of the visionary, some say of astrology itself. Aquarians are unorthodox, original people who refuse to follow the crowd. You like being different.
Intellectual independence is your most marked characteristic. Your inflexibility shows up when others least expect it. Whatever the cause, someone will suddenly come in conflict with your Aquarian obstinacy. You think boredom is a communicable disease and take every opportunity to avoid it.
People born under this sign live most intensely in their minds. You are a seeker of knowledge, rational, open-minded, gifted with breadth of vision.
You are very people-oriented, yet there is always a certain distant quality to you, a detachment or aloofness of spirit. You relate well to diverse personalities.
Independence is a way of life, and you will sacrifice even a close relationship in order to maintain it.
This is the astrological sign of hopes and wishes, and you are the kind to follow a dream.
You are so determined not to be like anyone else that you are sometimes contrary just to be different. You are quickly bored. Nevertheless, Aquarians are among the kindest people in the world.
