Aquarius: January 21 - February 19

The Aquarius Woman

The Aquarius woman is somewhat of an enigma. Born in a fixed sign, she is as loyal as the day is long, but Aquarius is also an air sign and all people born under them are somewhat detached from their emotions.

There are more ways to get rid of her than there are to keep her, but the worst mistake one can make with an Aquarius woman is to try and tie her down.

She really needs to pursue her own interests and needs to be encouraged to be who she really wants to be.

This is a tricky stance to negotiate, but it fits in perfectly with the nature of Saturn and Uranus. The Uranian side of her personality is the need for freedom, and the Saturnian side is the sense of responsibility; this way you're giving her both.

It's about achievement and respect, not money

You'll seldom find an Aquarius woman who forms a partnership based on the financial situation of another. Money does not really interest her; she is all about your achievements and the respect you gain from them.

Like all Saturn people, she does have the fear of not being able to live up to financial obligations and responsibilities, but if you are true to yourself and maintain your integrity, she will work her fingers to the bone to keep things running smoothly so that you can do what's necessary to gain the respect and praise she feels you deserve.

She's likely to be especially handy when it comes to handling money, because of her aforementioned dislike of being in debt. Don't, however, expect her to act like a bank; she may say yes to lending you money once, but she won't make a habit of it.

The most trusting woman in the zodiac

Aquarian women tend to be the most common victims of telemarketers and unscrupulous mechanics, because she will tend to extend her trust to those who don't really deserve it.

She'll never become suspicious of your actions, so don't take advantage of her unless you want to come home and find her, and all her things long gone, and there's probably nothing you or anyone else can do to change her mind and bring her back.

The good news is that an Aquarius woman will not jump into a relationship lightly; chances are good that if you're settled in with one, she has scrutinized you and has decided that you were deserving of her love. If she's done that, she's pretty convinced that you are as faithful to her as she is to you.

There won't be a rush to the alter

An Aquarius woman will not want to rush into a long term romantic commitment. The Aquarian female rarely suffers from the "dire need for love."

Her Saturnian side needs the certainty that you are the right person, and she needs the time to institute the Uranian mind-probe and analyze the results. She won't even begin taking these actions until you've found a way to convince her that you have no plans to shackle her to the stove.

You'll have to be patient with her in another way too: Aquarian women have a resistance to following directions. They might not always be the best cooks, because of their urge to experiment with recipes. It's useless to tell her that she doesn't need to be creative, but the frustration is easily erased by her gentle and engaging ways.
