The Sun moves into the sign of Aquarius today, at 11:43am, Eastern time. People born under this sign are fiercely proud of their idiosyncrasies. While they have a reputation for sometimes being unfeeling, hyper-intellectual, Mr. Spock types, they are highly sensitive souls who care deeply about the people around them. As astrologer Jon Cainer notes, “It’s because they are so inwardly vulnerable,” he tells us, “that they hide their feelings behind a mask of indifference. They fear that if they ever let it slip, they may never restore it.”
The Water-bearers are humanitarians that want to make the world a better place in which to live through their revolutionary thoughts and ideas. They are creative, innovative, original, progressive thinkers – in short, they are visionaries. They have a keen intellect and an ability to think “out of the box.” While broadminded, Aquarians can be stubborn in their opinions and can get impatient with those who disagree with them.
Aquarians are also very sociable and tend to have many friends and acquaintances. They relish their reputation as nonconformists and eccentrics. Aquarians usually have excellent judgment, but to be successful, the challenge is to follow through, and act on their insights.
