Aquarius, you are the Master. On the Zodiac wheel, you come after Capricorn (AKA the power-seeking sign). Therefore you hold the power that Capricorn built, but instead of hoarding said power, you redistribute it to those without. Basically, you are the Democratic Socialist of the Zodiac.
You are the “Water Bearer”: The man or woman who leaves the first world, to visit the destitute countries, and give water to those who are less fortunate. You are the natural humanitarian, and the Social Justice Warriors.
In your mind at all times, you are trying to find ways to progress forward, to innovate, to become more than you were, and to bring everyone with you.
You will fight what you consider to be injustice. You will destroy those who use their power to impoverish others. On occasion, you can become a little bit too self-righteous in your causes, and like a superhero, damage more than you actually save. This can happen when you don’t know your own strength, so self-awareness will ultimately save your reputation.
Aquarius is the 11th sign, and the ruler of the 11th house. Eleven is an insanely powerful number, and like I said, Aquarians are very powerful people—you just like to deny this fact because you’re also a rebel, and denying your power makes you uniquely you. The 11th house is the house of friendships, networking, and powerful allies, and so for you, it’s important that you stand out from the rest of the herd.
Aquarians are magicians. You create wine from water, water from nothing. You will be there to hand us whatever we need, when we need it. I believe that you were divinely sent here to save us all, and so you hold the power of healing in your back pocket.
I know that every Aquarius walks through life and feels like there is something more they are supposed to do. Normally, this takes you to using your platform to knock out hate speech, or to raise money for important causes. But even this will not satisfy you. If you came from Capricorn’s power. then you are going towards Pisces enlightenment. And what you will find, is that you can’t take on the whole world from your laptop, and choosing your battles, focusing your power, and allowing everyone’s truth to be spoken, even if you hate it, will save you in return.
You are intelligent and so you teach. You have more and so you give it away. Aquarians are not allowed to hoard their power. You have responsibility to give, and give you do.
You do not love anyone more than you love anyone else. You might say that you’re anequal opportunity lover. You spread yourself out evenly and strategically. You are the One One of the Eleven—naturally balanced.
Aquarians are the 3rd and final air sign. You have perfected communication, and so you are brilliance. You are peaceful innovation. You are openminded. You’re the dreamer. You live to bring people together. You believe that religions and cultures can coexist. And you are always on the verge of achieving the zen you search for.
Aquarius, you are extraordinary. You are more than worthy of achieving your dreams. And you will undoubtably leave your mark, and change the world.
Before I begin, I contemplated asking someone else to write this piece for me. As a Libra, explaining to everyone why I love myself, reminds me too much of my everyday life. Why do you look in the mirror? You must be vain. Why do you take selfies? You must be desperate for attention. Why do you care so much about what people think of you? You must be insecure.
And I do think that as children, with our Sun debilitated in Libra, we have a few things to overcome. Insecurity, vanity, and attention seeking might be some of them, but they truly come from a place of general interest (and sometimes great pain).
We don’t know how to be ourselves at first, and so we gather clues from the other signs. As we grow in confidence and maturity, we share ourselves in return. After all, life is about sharing experiences, and giving back what we’ve taken. We are not much different than societal mirrors. If you don’t like a Libra, it might be because that Libra is mimicking you.
As Libra’s, we know everything there is to know about everybody, but when it comes to ourselves, we draw huge blanks. “Do I like steak? Hell, I can’t remember. I know YOU like steak.” And yes, on occasion it can go as far as, “Do I like myself? I can’t remember. I think YOU like me. Do you like me?”
Libra is the seventh sign, which means we bring in the second part of the Zodiac, and we pride ourselves in doing so with style, grace and charisma. The second half of the Zodiac is all about selflessness, and Libra is where we get that first shot at it. We are not all perfectly giving. In fact, we can go the opposite way and hoard everything, from our feelings, to our possessions, to our lovers and children, but it comes from a good place—we protect, and will fight for the things we love, sometimes a little too hard.
We are ruled by the dark side of Venus. Taurus, our Venus counterpart, is ruled by the light side—the side that shines with love, pleasure, affection and beauty, for all to see. But Libra is that unseen beauty, that mysterious depth of character, which pretends to be shallow, ignorant, or ugly, in order to relate to others. Sometimes this means that we find our beauty and self-worth in other people, but at our best we share our worth. We become one with our lovers, exchanging our talents and gifts, healing each other’s wounds, and creating balance.
Libra’s are insanely funny. We want to make people happy, so we entertain them by putting on spectacular shows. We like to tell jokes that make people think, and we enjoy being around witty and intelligent people to share our ideas with. We love laughing and we work to make everyone laugh with us, even at our expense. No one can cut a self-deprecating joke the way a Libra can–we just secretly wish that more people understood our sarcasm.
We spent our early childhoods taking in and observing a random a sample of humanity, spent our teenage years actively engaging with the culture around us, and now as adults we thrive in giving the world what it wants, and then blowing their minds with even more.
Basically, we’ve been inspecting people intuitively since birth, and because of this, our psychic sensors are extremely high. Sometimes it feels like we can read minds, as we instinctively anticipate the needs of others. Popular psychic, Sylvia Browne (who happens to be a Libra) lumps Libra with Pisces as the most psychic of the Zodiac signs. Other signs can disagree (I see you, Scorpio), but when it comes to our perfected ability to read other people, there is no competition.
Libra’s value their time, but are not selfish with it. We actually loathe making people wait longer than what is considered fashionable. Some of us will put off showering to make it to your baseball game in time. Sadly, people like to point out the times we didn’t show, due to our apparent flakiness. When in reality, we didn’t come, because we weren’t up for entertaining, and we aren’t sure people want us any other way. A fault, we work to fix, as we are always working to achieve perfect balance.
We are very creative, and always experimenting with fashion, photography, painting, drawing, selfie-ing, writing and acting. We love to get lost in the finer things, and we absolutely love art. We might be known as the hopeless romantics, but if we were to be honest, our first love was art—we just grew up and decided that it be nice to find someone to create with us. We don’t just want to enjoy creation, we want other people to enjoy it with us.
We are the only sign ruled by an inanimate object, The Scales. This, in itself, can make us appear to be uncaring, indecisive and aloof, but in fact, it makes us good at weighing the pros and cons of every situation, before we react in an emotional way. When we finally do get emotional, it’s because something we love was taken from us. Otherwise, if we cannot do it objectively, we try not to get involved.
Libra is the most misunderstood sign of the Zodiac, and I’m not just saying that because I am one. I’m saying it because I’ve analyzed every sign for years, and Libra is the one sign that everyone gets wrong, repeatedly. We are special, and have breathed new life into every person we’ve crossed paths with. The words we speak live on inside those who have met us, and wherever we go, we leave our mark, and we do it in spite of that debilitated Sun, and subsequent lack of ego.
Libra’s do everything out of their forever love and adoration of humanity.
Everyone has a Gemini in their life that they love. That’s what being a Gemini is all about. Taking love and sharing love and spreading love everywhere with your big smile and run on sentences… Whether you are the very talkative Gemini or the unusually quiet, self-talking Gemini — you are loved.
As your sign naturally rules over the 3rd house of communication, childhood, and community, you have friendships on lock. You are the ever popular pep rally MC, the fastest kid at the playground, and ultimately the person I want to have at my next birthday party.
Gemini’s are represented by “The Twins,” and so you are always aware of each side. Even if others see it as having severely split opinions about things, you know that it’s just another part of your all-encompassing nature.
You are represented by the light, or easy, side of the planet Mercury (Virgo is the dark side), this means that you have a good grasp on logical thinking and you know that there is no right, or wrong in this game of life. Did I mention life is a game to you?
Gemini’s love their friends, more than you love yourself at times. You are so interested in everything others do — watching and observing, at the exact same time that you are talking. Witnessing your expert communication skills, is a truly miraculous experience.
You believe that there is no emotion that cannot be articulated, if you have the time. You are passionate about your passions, and see no reason to pretend otherwise. You want us to love what you love, and so you have a tendency to go on and on about the same thing, and a different thing, and all the things, but only to show us what you’ve found. And that is a gift.
Gemini’s are full of life. You own the right to smile, with your perfectly rounded cheekbones, and dimples — like you were made to shine light. You exude confidence, even if it’s not 100% set in stone. You are the best actors because of this. Your confidence is contagious and it makes everyone around you, happy. If you’re in a bad mood, 5 minutes later you will be in a good mood. Nothing is permanent. Nothing needs to be. You enjoy change.
Gemini, you invented communication, and so you invented our way of life. This Libra bows down to the king of the air signs, and will remove herself now to give you the spotlight, because you’re the one who really knows what to say.
