Aquarius traits

Aquarius personality traits

Aquarius people are the visionaries of the zodiac. They tend to be unconventional and progressive thinkers with lots of good ideas. Typically they are big picture people and tend to dislike details. Rebels at heart they are respectful of others opinions and place a very high value on intellectual stimulation, debate (they tend to be very skilled at expressing themselves) and discovering new things. To attract an Aquarius you need to start with their mind.

Where do these Aquarius traits come from?

One of the fascinating things about astrology is the patterns which exist. Aquarius personality traits certainly aren't random. They come from a combination of the signs ruling planet, element, polarity, house and quality. All of these are also used (consistently) elsewhere within astrology and come together to form the unique package which is the Aquarius personality.

Are the traits of every Aquarius the same?

No. The above traits exist if someone has an Aquarius sun sign. However every individual also has other planet placements (Moon, Mars, Venus etc) which modify this behavior. In some cases one or more of the basic personality traits listed above will be modified or even replaced. Only by examining all the planet placements for an individual can we get a complete picture of their unique personality. A skilled astrologer can often calculate these backwards from the ways that the basic sun sign behavior is being modified.

Aquarius traits - nurture versus nature

As children we are subjected to many experiences and influences. These can lead to a determined effort to modify our personality and behavior. The traits still exist, but they can be over ridden by free thought. It's fairly common for negative traits to gradually diminish as a person gets older, wiser and more socially adept.
