Respect for Aquarians involves shredding a few myths about them. They’re not rebels or (usually) overtly political. That’s Sagittarius vibe.
Being part-ruled by Saturn and a Fixed sign, Aquarius people* like to conserve energy. Ask them a direct question and they may lecture rant in response but it is not their mode. At an early age, most of them clock the government as hopelessly non-progressive or corrupt and structure their consciousness/life plans accordingly. They’re rationalists. The way they live their lives is the rebellion.
Few people give Aquarians credit for the daily stress levels they have to mediate. They are creatures of the future, living in an anachronism. The technology exists to deliver utopia and yet so much is behind the Zeitgeist. Or, worse, actively working against it.
Aquarians Are Living In An Anachronism
Every single Aquarius person has had an early life moment where they express a fairly obvious truth and get smacked down for it. They’re not “aloof” – they’re trying to figure out something to say that won’t freak you out. Of course they want to ‘belong’ but at what cost? Aligning with the mainstream kills the Uranian/Aquarius genius. If you see it as being like a magical spirit or daemon, the way the ancients did, it flies away if you consume most of your psychic energy trying to act ‘normal.’
Nor are they emotionless – they’re just not sentimental. Sentiment is to emotion as an air freshener scent is to the fragrance from a rosebush. And Aquarians don’t confuse feelings with social conformity. They don’t trust government assurances that something is “safe” and they don’t believe in a collective concept of “appropriateness.”
Aquarians are used to a cycle of things they know being deemed weird, but then incredible. They try to live by their credo, anyway. Years later, when their weirdness is suddenly cool, they’re bored by your enthusiasm.
They Feel Low-Frequency Vibrations
Another misconception: that their reputation for being ‘experimental’ means they like excitement, surreal fashion, or a ‘kinky’ sex life. Their consciousness is like a storm: oppressive atmospheric pressure lows, a lightning bolt of radical inspiration and realization, and the rolling thunder of a big, drastic morph. Their nervous system is ultra-wired and they can hear/feel electromagnetic fields/low frequency vibrations. That seventh sense is becoming stronger now that Uranus – the co-ruler of Aquarius – is in Taurus.
They’re seeking clear space, without energetic pollution from fuq knows what frequency. They like solitude or company that’s not obtrusive or flustering. Animals and digital friendships are a good fit. If it’s a formal occasion, involves crowds, or requires clothes that might itch, most Aquarians will instinctively avoid you forever for even mentioning the possibility.
Having to think about clothes that somehow reflect their persona is exhausting. What would? Hologram rainbow fabric that deflects 5G and attracts beneficial galactic cosmic rays. They’d rather wear a version of a uniform and many settle on a core look. As for sex, whether or not they’re active, they’re not necessarily going to attach it to romance. They crave routine and many are thrilled to eat the same food every day.
Aquarians are ultra-conventional but only to their conventions.
