Aquarians generally possess both strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle categories: one shy, sensitive, gentle, and patient; the other exuberant, lively, and exhibitionist. Both types of Aquarians are strong willed and forceful in their ways and have very strong convictions, though because they seek and value truth above anything else, they are generally honest enough to change their opinions, no matter how firmly they are held, if evidence comes to light which convinces them that they have been mistaken. In addition, Aquarians tend to express themselves with reason, moderation, and sometimes, a dry sense of humor.
People born under the sun sign of Aquarians are always intelligent, concise, clear, and logical. Many Aquarians are very imaginative and psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to begin again is much anticipated by psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous because it can drive the subjects into an ivory tower existence where they mediate on abstractions that have very little to do with the realities of life. On the other hand, it can help the many people who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the universal recognition of the brotherhood of man and to embark on scientific research in order to fulfill their philanthropic ideas and wishes of benefiting mankind. For history buffs, the first Age of Aquarius took place in the 1960s in an era of free love, creativity, social change, and peace. The Aquarius zodiac horoscope sign seems to resemble a Greek water angel or fairy that is very peaceful and loving.
Both kinds of Aquarians need to retire from the rest of the world from time to time and to become temporary loners. They often appreciate the chance to meditate or for retreats, if they are religious. Even when they are with others, they are extremely independent because they refuse to follow the crowd. They dislike interference from other people no matter how well it is intended and they will only take the advice of others under their own terms. Aquarians generally have good tastes in drama, music, and art; they are also gifted in the arts, especially drama. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
