Sun in Aquarius -
Aquarius is one of the Air signs indicating thought, intellect and communication. It is also one of the Fixed signs bring strong reactions to stimulus but also stability, reliability, and a certain amount of stubbornness.
Those born under this Sun sign are generally intense, self-expressive, progressive, spontaneous, communicative and energetic. The typical Aquarian has strong feelings and embraces humanitarian causes. They will put a lot of energy into a cause but may allow their opinions to blind them to the truth. They are generally intelligent, intuitive and full of ideas. They work well with technology and things science based. While usually faithful their detached manner and independent nature can lead to misunderstandings. On the negative side, they can also be eccentric, contrary, tactless and erratic.
For Aquarians this period is one where both their strengths and weaknesses will be heightened, so they need to be careful to focus on putting their positive aspects to the fore. For them this is not the best of times to be working too closely with new people. They also need to be aware of the need to nurture their relationships and not to appear too distant or self-sufficient. Non-Aquarians will find this is a good period for matters of the mind; thought, study and learning new things, and also for communication. It is a good time for projects which involve helping others.
