The person who is born under the zodiac star sign of Aquarius tend to be of two different types. One type of Aquarius is shy and the other type is lively. Both types however tend to be very strong willed as well as very honest. Their thoughts are very orderly and they plan their lives in a systematic manner. Some are very aggressive and loud and often can be unprejudiced and can easily see other people's points of view. Aquarius is very serious but they can also be quite funny and have sort of a dry sense of humor. They have a logical mind and are quite intelligent. There are times when they sometimes feel the need to withdraw themselves from people so they can go off and be alone for awhile. This often makes others think that they are loners. When they are alone they often prefer to meditate or pray. Often they are egotistical however and this can drive friends away.
Aquarius tend to be very frank, persevering without being self-assertive and they will express themselves with reason and with moderation. They are concise and clear when they communicate and can be philosophical and spiritual. Often they can be found doing scientific research to try and fulfill their philanthropic ideals of trying to benefit mankind. Even though this kind of work can inspire them it also can drive them to near exhaustion to the point of even risking their own health to help others.
Even though they are forthcoming and often have a magnetic personality they often find it hard to make close friends. They find it difficult at times to easily give of themselves because of their judgment of human nature so often they can come off as being a cold person. However, after they decide that someone is worth being friends with or loving, they will exert a near hypnotic and irresistible type of mental attraction on this person that they may be even ready to sacrifice all that they have for this person and will be faithful to them for the rest of their lives. But, they often can be disappointed emotionally because of their own extremely high ideals that this can cause them to be more demanding of others and if they happen to find out they've been deceived their angry can be horrible. If they feel they've been disillusioned they find it hard to forgive in fact often they can't forgive.
People born under this sign often work well as scientists, astronomers, historians and may also excel at things such as photography, radiography and electronics. They also tend to express themselves well through writing and poetry. They can often be found as welfare workers and teachers. Some make good actors and musicians as well.
Some of their major faults are that they are egotistical, have excessive detachment and tend to be extremely dogmatic in their personal opinions. They tend to have a simmering anger and resentment towards those who may be their enemies and can become rude and even have a very threatening temper.
