The Astrological Sun Sign
When reading the Aquarius Personality Profile below, keep in mind that it is a
generalization of the various influences at work during the time The Sun was passing through that Sign.
When the positions of the heavenly bodies at the time of birth are known, their influence can be further defined
to add greater insight into the positive and negative effects they can produce.
In order to get this information, we recommend a Natal Chart be developed specifically for an individual. Real
accuracy is only obtained by charting the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the precise month, day,
time, and city, an individual was born.
This information provides an enlightening "specific" Personal Profile, which can be studied, referred to, and
acted upon, throughout the individuals life.

This sign governs the legs of the Grand Man, or Microcosm. It is an aerial, sanguine, masculine, western, fixed,
human, rational, speaking, obeying sign, the negative pole of the Air Triplicity. In its spiritual duality it is
the sign of the Divine Sophia, the attributes being soul, memory, and diffusive knowledge. It governs the physical
The Sun enters the sign each year on or about the 22nd of
January and departs from it on or about the 21st of February. The Sun on entering the sign should be given six
days before coming into full touch and action with the influence of the sign. A person born between the dates of
the 22nd and 28th of January would not receive the full central results of the sign's individuality, as he would be
born when The Sun was on the edge of the sign. This is known as "The Cusp." Its nature
and impulses partake of the sign The Sun has just passed through and out from, and the native will also partake of
the attributes of the sign of the Zodiac in which The Moon is
located at the time of birth.
People born under this sign are said to be the strongest and the weakest people in the world. They are naturally
endowed with great possibilities, which, when understood and appreciated, take them to supreme heights of strength
and usefulness, and when ignored or unrecognized, cause them to be creatures of impulse, fluctuating
desire, without equilibrium, and blown about by every wind of doctrine. In the latter state they are those who
constantly seek advice on the simplest subjects, and rarely ever take it. They are those who ask questions with
great humility and forget the answers. These persons are aware of possessing unusual power in certain
directions, but they are so lazy and so deficient in the ability to concentrate, that these beautiful gifts are
scattered and very frequently entirely lost.
Aquarius people are remarkable spiritual healers. Every human being born under this sign possesses this genius,
whether he is aware of it or not, and it can be brought into a beautiful and phenomenal use by a respectful and
loving recognition. To learn to know opportunity and improve it, is the key to Aquarius genius.
The Aquarius woman is not so timid and so apprehensive of danger to those they love as the Libra woman, or so
restless and fidgety as the Gemini woman. But, they usually care more for the acquisition of property than these
people, and are apt to be very nervous about their investments, the management of business, and the opinion and
speech of people.
Those born under this sign are generally very noble, honest, and kind-hearted, and are endowed with
considerable natural discrimination. They are fair readers of character, and are not easily deceived by a pitiful
tale. This mental and spiritual quickness makes them very apt in any study, any trade, or profession they may take
up. It is hardly too much to say that the Aquarius man and the Aquarius woman, who is even partially aware of their
power, can succeed in almost any work they may decide to do. They are not rote students, but seem without any
particular effort to absorb information from every source. They are always agreeable and retain their dignity on
all occasions. They are rarely passionate or quick-tempered, but know how to resent an insult when one is
The Air people are sometimes unmanageable and not always logical, but they have a comprehension of spiritual
cause and effect which is entirely above ordinary material syllogistic reasoning. This is the power of inspiration
and divination power which the Aquarius people possess to a remarkable degree. It is called the Power of the Holy
Ghost. When the soul of an Aquarius person is once roused to work for righteousness, improvement is sure to be
rapid, and high spiritual development follows.
All born under this sign have a gift of the spirit, which, if they choose to recognize and use, is wonderful
The eyes of the silent, quiet, Aquarius person have great hypnotic force, and when the light that shines forth
is the light of the Spirit, the ability to heal seems almost superhuman.
