Aquarius is the positive sign of Saturn, fixed air, the lower legs of the Cosmic Person, a pot or water bearer. As sign 11, it indicates the group and the needs of the masses.

Aquarius individuals are the most self-negative of all types. On a higher level, they have more faith and capacity to surrender the ego to the Divine. On a lower level, they believe in others and denigrate themselves. For this reason, they tend more towards sexual deviation than the other signs. They are prone to do what they are told not to do and to befriend those they are told to avoid. In this way their energy can be blocked, dissipated, confused or darkened.

On a higher level, Aquarians are willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of all and are strongly humanitarian. On a lower level, they may accept a subservient, servile or even degrading role in life, and not protest against the injustice inflicted upon them. They like to take the side of the oppressed, the outcasts or disapproved elements of society. They often have much guilt and like to blame themselves. They act selflessly in relation to those things in which they repose their faith. If that is the Divine, they may become saintly. If it is some criminal group, they can even become underworld leaders.

Aquarians may be eccentric and scattered in what they do, unclear as to who they really are. They lack charisma and often fail to attract the masses as political leaders and teachers. The water they bring is that of truth from their intuitive perception.
