Aquarius: January 21 - February 19
Aquarius Likes and Dislikes
By Brian Palenske
Our list of top Aquarius likes and dislikes. Aquarius likes and dislikes are born under the dual rulership of Saturn and
Uranus and the Element of Air. They can be quite loyal and completely trustworthy, but, like the other Air Signs, Gemini and
Libra, have a problem with promptness.
Usually the excuse for being late has to do with running into a friend.
Being a realist - Aquarian people may seem to be on the cutting edge of new ideas or technologies, but
due to the nature of the elements and qualities, they tend to be realists. Others may think of them as being indecisive
or impractical, but, in their own way, they tend to stick with the facts.
Keeping a broad outlook - They are usually interested in a wide range of subjects, and are seldom close
minded, in fact, one of the reasons it's said to be hard to pin an Aquarius down because their interests will tend to
change from time to time. This is the nature of Uranus shining through; they generally have these ideas and shifts of
Surprises - Uranus is also responsible for their love of surprises; they love surprising others and love
Listening to others - As secretive as they are about their own lives, they have been known to innocently
reveal the secrets of others; it's probably because they are such good listeners that people open up to them, and
their love of honesty drives them to speak the truth.
Friendship and social activity - Above all things, Aquarians value friendship. Friendship is so
important to them, and they regard it with such high esteem, when an Aquarius calls someone a friend, it may mean more to
them that most pronouncements of love. The forward-thinking Aquarius person tends to regard everyone as a friend until
they prove themselves otherwise, and will often gather with their friends at home or out and about, because they love
Old ways of doing things - You will probably meet an Aquarius who enjoys nostalgic or antique items, but
you'll rarely meet one who likes doing things "the old way." Aquarians are generally innovators, and prefer
to think of new ways to do things.
Prejudice and intolerance - They also are quite open toward other people and cannot abide intolerance in
Being told how to live their lives - It's a very rare Aquarian that sets down rules about how
someone should live, because they don't want to be told what to do themselves. Not all people born under this sign
dress like participants in the Hippie rebellion, but that's because blending in gives them more freedom, if they need
Confrontations - It's also unusual to find an Aquarian in the midst of an argument; they will
usually speak freely but will avoid being confrontational if at all possible. The influence of Saturn, the co-ruler of
Aquarius, helps them avoid the unnecessary, and unless there are very different things going on among the other planets,
they consider arguments to be totally unnecessary.
Changing their minds - Being 'Fixed Signs" their ideas and opinions are pretty solid, but
because of the Air Element, they have the kind of minds that allow those opinions to change if needed; they just
don't like to admit it when it happens. Because their brilliant minds express the quirky and spontaneous planet
Uranus, they might tend to change ideas and plans at a moment's notice.
