Win Aquarian Roses With Just Your Wit

torkil-gudnason5

People – Win yourself a bottle of the uber-classy and ethno-botanical (read; haute hippie and no toxic ingredients) Aquarian Rose scent from Strange Invisible Perfumes.

Top Notes: Rose, Marjoram and Sandalwood. Perfect for a Proust-bender of practical fragrance magic (remember: every sorceress is a pragmatist at heart) this Mercury Retrograde.

As befitting anything with Aquarian in the name, it’s unisex. Or omni-sexual, whatever.

The winner is announced on Sunday – via the Comments – and their Aquarian Rose perfume will be sent to them on Monday. This HAS to arrive before the Eclipse/Mercury Direct.

Here are the rules: You need to be a subscriber to enter  – the rumors are true – they get all the perks around here.

Other than that, you just need to post your Aquarius rant in the comments. It can be about you as an Aquarian, your Aquarian Ex, your Aquarian past life, theories about Aquarius peeps, your Aquarius family members, tips for understanding Aquarius peeps, the top Ten Aquarius Wankers, why you wish you were an Aquarius, Aqua Slebs.  Aquarius anything.

It’s been a while since we had a good strong post on Aquarius peeps – those Zap Zoners (Kataka, Aries, Capricorn and Libra) have been getting all the attention.

Go for it and may the funniest/coolest/most poignant comment win the Aquarian Rose potion. I will pop back here to judge on Sunday!

Aquarius is about the ever more valuing of a masculine man in the eyes of all women and society alike. This man is no heathen or animal

This is man whose flesh is only as real as the matrix surrounding him, his own fields, his acquaintances and his society. He is the dystopian nobody who we are already familiar with but we have a long way to meet because so much desire and want is made possible by the strides to get to become this society. He is what can be of humanity, he is lightweight well designed and intelligent

last winter, I was both fuqing an aquarius & being courted by a double-aquarius. both artists (the first a musician, the second an actor), both heavily involved with activism & well-read on politics. both wrote me (good) poems. both quit smoking so as to have better sex with me. I chose the double-aquarius even tho I’m a katakachild, mostly because he was even weirder, open to spirituality & more into bdsm 😉

I once briefly dated a multiple-conjunct Aquarian. Very creative guy, but so far “out there” that it was hard to relate. I generally dig the Aquarius vibe but he was a bit too much. I don’t think this guy was a “typical” Aquarian — he was more like a stereotypical, uber-Aquarian.

As a sun Leo, it was good to get a “taste” of the sign opposing mine. In general, I feel more comfortable with other fire signs, or neighboring signs.

As an Aquarius Sun with Aquarius Rising, Mars and Saturn and Uranus in 7th House I seem to be constantly getting entangled romantically with Aquarians, so lots of stories to tell. But one of my favourite Aquarians was a circus performer – saw him standing on top of his Kombi near my subtropical hinterland home looking kinda feral but interesting with a shaved head, dreadlock sikha and serpent tattoos. Ended up in boxing training together became friends, consummated the relationship on the UFO spaceship he had built in the middle of the bush. It ended when he forgot I was… Read more »

I am an Aquarian sun. I go through strange gyrations when getting out of cars or opening doors because I am so used to electrocuting myself on them with static electricity seeking to ground. To the outside observer it probably looks a bit OCD that I tap door handles with the back of my hand first.

Where to begin? My 11th-12th hs stellium in Aquarius more often works as an holistic whole: stern Saturn, the traditional ruler of waterbearers of times past, his attitude softened & made more tolerant in this airy sign & house, nudges gently up to the Sun in the sign of my birthright, Venus crowned & enthroned therein. Unemotional? Undemonstrative? I think not when the heart is aflame!

Was thinking of contributing but started to get really weighed down by my negative experiences with Aquarian men. I find the women totally bright and friendly. They connect and don’t feel smothered if you just happen to call them.

Aqua men seem like they have always got something up their nose – like breathing the same air as you is a chore. Arrrrgh, the push-pull is a head fuq. Very fuqing controlling.

I have to agree with you on that. In my experience, Aqua men tend to think that they are way above everybody else. And like the cliché says, you become catnip if you ignore them. That’s ok if you are into games and role-playing. I prefer straight up simplicity in my relationships with friends. Family relationships are tricky enough – but you don’t get to choose your family. As for the women, I’ve known a few (friendly enough), and I’ve had a strong friendship with one for over 30 years. A friendship that has had me confounded almost every step… Read more »

My experience of Aquarians is that they are always chasing something or someone that is out of reach, and when they finally get it/him/her – because they always do – they pull it apart and then abandon it. Moving on to the next unavailable object or person.

Hi, yeah look, my main experiences are with the male of the species. When I was younger, I just didn’t understand them – I am triple water with heaps of Leo – there was a major disconnect. Other people seemed to ‘get’ them but I just couldn’t. With this particular ‘friend’ the push-pull went on for years. Had me totally confounded too. He was interesting and interested when he wanted to be. Totally engaging and engaged, only to spit in your face (metaphorically, but once literally) the next time he (dis)connected. So hurtful.

One more thing about this guy. He was “trapped” (his words) into marriage by a girl who he got pregnant.

His wife couldn’t get rid of him. She tried everything including throwing his wardrobe of clothes on the nature strip. Truth was she loved him and was heart broken because he would push – pull her as well. He had the perfect situation. He used his wife as… Read more »

I have Aquarius rising. I think it has manifested itself in my online life. I believe it allows me to have the cool detachment that Aquarians are described as having. I am not sure if the ability to be online lets me feel like I can be the “real me,”or, I am more easily able to be the person I want to be. However, virtual reality is an Aquarians paradise. It allows us to get our techy electronic geek on while being able to view ourselves from the outside of the fishbowl. And yes, we do love our gadgetry!

Aqua Boy can build his own computers and musical instruments and internet communities and he is cooler than anyone you’ve ever met and he is in love with the fact that you are smarter than him, and likes having a walking encyclopaedia on hand to kiss. When he makes love, he makes love to an idea and sometimes it’s a good one. The dynamic fast becomes mother and naughty son. I’ve had 4.5 “I love… Read more »

It makes me rage when people (almost always men) tell me to smile.

I’m also, I suppose, a ‘feminist’ and I think when men tell women to smile it’s sexist, like we’re just there to serve them, entertain them, brighten their day, no matter how we’re feeling….hell no! It’s a form of objectification..

I never knew the true meaning of – Sex God – until I met my Aquarian. So attentive..

Also have you noticed that they have a gift of making you feel like you already know them before you do and if you don’t see them for 10 years you can be exactly where you left off. Beyond time and space. I’ll never be over him but he certainly cured me of any heart break… Read more »

The thing I have found with Aquas is that they are true humanitarians.

I have to be honest, I don’t know a single aqua who lives in a bio-dome or bathes in violet light every time Aldebaran transits the Uranus nodes or whatever.

My grand passion was an Aquarian. Absolutely amazing physical and emotional connection for many years. We are both married to others now (both very happily), but are linked at a psychic level. When anything goes bad the other knows and gets in touch. no matter how long the gap.

When an Aqua loves, they truly love. You wouldn’t want to live with one, though 😀

Aquarian love and life long loss My first love was an Aquarian. He died at 23 in the act of helping someone else-he was that kind of guy.

While my Uranus opposition was active I met a number of Aquarians. I met and fell for an Aqua and his intellect online. His profile opened with the warning that he was “NOT interested in a relationship, that people drifted into and out of each others lives….etc.” But we were so simpatico. He lived near me but was away for work, so we skyped 6 delirious nights running at the end of which my Toro/Scorp/Libra bits were all SURE this could not NOT culminate in the most glorious and committed union, our compatibility could not be denied, etc and he… Read more »

There is this Aqua being whose uranian energy I lived with several years back. He drifts in and out of town as Aquas do. The other day I arrive home and as I enter the front door and look over to the empty lounge I suddenly think of him, as if his image had been zapped into my mind. Then I sit down at the table to have a glass of water, and the Guardian Weekly from a few weeks back is open at the crossword. I’d filled about 75% a fortnight back but given up. And now, I see… Read more »

My Aqua peeps story began in my twenties with a search for soul mates, lovers, friends, even co-workers, who channelled the aqua vibe. As a Leo with Kataka rising and moon – and limited astro knowledge – I thought we’d hit it off. Alas, I attracted Kataka and Leo men IN THE EXTREME and a range of fem friends; Geminis, Virgoans, Librans and Sagies. In my thirties, the closest I got was a friendship with a Capricorn who called herself a Capriquarious, due to being born in late Jan.

Aquarians: On a scale of “Don’t Care” to “Have we met?” , describe how you feel when a friend or loved one tells you about a complex interpersonal issue that they are facing. You are given the choice to talk to a friend who is experiencing a bad breakup, and a chance to talk to the head of research at MIT’s department of theoretical physics. Describe what you learnt from the MIT meeting. Your child or a friend appears to need or expect something from you that requires empathy or some kind of soothing words.

I also have a weakness for old roses for which I can offer no astrological explanation. My bed linen is a chintzy Laura Ashley rose, my jarmies are Peter Alexander chintzy rose. The Weatherbeaten Virgo used to joke that if I lay very still in bed I would be completely invisible.

He wanted to go into space–and he also wanted to be a primatologist. He made up a story when I met him that he had it in his will to be cryogenically frozen and had already paid for the service.

After we broke up, I met a hypnotherapist who does past-life regression work–and I referred him to her. He never told me what happened during their session–he did tell me though that he didn’t understand it until he had a near death experience (where he was literally dead for a short time–Hearing that definitely influenced my feeling about past-lives)

Crying. Did not expect that.

So gracious. So worldly. So devastatingly, sometimes, because you can’t save the world without knowing how to save yourself, and that is the piece we have been missing for so long.
