Basic Traits

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by Saturn, and known as the revolutionary. As an air sign aquarius’ are equipped to be the delivers of information, however they are a uniquely remote sign. They like to be known for being different, for testing the boundaries. An aquarius wants to know every little thing there is to know about whatever it is that is interesting to them at the time. Lillith astrology explains that an aquarius is uniquely able to facilitate unique networks of a diverse variety of different people from different spaces. This makes them especially valuable for developing communities and bringing more people behind the fight for racial justice. Aquarius’ also tends to be a sign that does not need mainstream validation, instead they feel best when they are uprooting the status quo and acting on their revolutionary insights. Racial justice work is revolutionary work and an aquarius will bring that vision and that guidance to see new unimagined spaces, systems, and ways of existing. Like other fixed signs, they do not change their mind on their opinions. An Aquarius will work hard in pursuit of what they believe to be right which means they will remain committed to their cause. Sometimes an aquarius may feel more comfortable thinking about large-scale issues affecting humanity rather than connecting one on one with the people in their life. As an aquarius you may need to re-ground yourself in your relationships and allow for vulnerability throughout the work of racial justice, or you may be at risk for becoming too fixed on the issues of humanity that you can not solve on your own.
