Air

Airy people are usually natural communicators. On a positive note they are great and conceptual tasks and often tend to ‘have their head in the clouds’! I usually find that people with this element emphasised are extroverted and enjoy being exposed to different ideas, knowledge is quite important to them. On the down side though, they may be so busy living in their head that they lose touch with reality. The lack of air in a birth chart can indicate difficulty in the expression of that person. Communication of ideas and the ability to conceptualise may prove difficult.

Key Words
intellectual * rational * curious * idealistic * unemotional * animated * uninvolved * conceptual * devoid of feeling * very sensitive * needs to communicate * social * objective * impersonal * distant * opinionated * air has least obvious bad qualities * theoretical * abstract * needs to socialize * needs to share ideas *

Chakra

As a good Earth sign,  Capricorn is ruled by Muladhara, also known as the Root Chakra. Something that fits perfectly with your most hardworking and professional side, and can help you survive and even excel in any situation that presents some kind of difficulty or complication. It is located at the base of the spine,  it represents the starting point for the other Chakras and it allows the main energy channels of our bodies to emerge and manifest themselves.

Traditional Gemstone

Amethyst, is a variety of quartz with a natural violet color due to the presence of iron, other trace elements, and irradiation. Amethyst crystallizes in the trigonal system and is found in open cavities.

Mental uses of the Amethyst gemstone derive from its transformative qualities.  To use this vibration in changing unwanted situations, imagine yourself surrounded by vibrating, glowing bubble of violet light emanating from the stone. As you imagine this, know that all that you are upset about or challenged by is currently being transformed and transmuted into something powerful.

Spiritual uses of amethyst are stimulated by the third eye and all six clairs. These are terms from the ability spiritually see, hear, know, sense, smell, and taste the truth. Use this purple-tones quartz to ward off nightmares and encourage sweet dreams and restful sleep. It is also good to help you remember your dreams. Amethyst helps protect from psychic attacks and clear out the negative thoughts of the day. This stone is perfect to invite angelic vibes of Archangels Gabriel, Metatron, Raziel, Tzaphkiel, and Zadkiel.

There is no me, there is only we.

Zodiac Flower

Don’t let an Aquarius’ shy demeanor fool you. While they can sometimes be quiet, they’re incredibly energetic and eccentric when around friends they trust. Plus, they’re wonderfully intelligent and diligent problem solvers. Naturally, a strong, yet delicate-looking flower like the orchid makes the perfect gift for an Aquarius. The exotic shape of the plant aligns with the eccentric personality of an Aquarius. This sign may not one to stand in the limelight, but they certainly don’t mind straying from the norm.

Essential Oil

You’re a visionary who is always looking for innovative ways to improve, and you value your freedom. So, your go-to oil is Cedarwood!

Aquarius, the eleventh sign in the zodiac, belongs to those born between the dates of January 20th to February 18th.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign Traits

Independent and enigmatical, Aquarians are unique. There is no one quite like an Aquarius, and because each is so incredibly individual, it can be tough to describe them as a group. Aquarians don’t like labels, and may shy away from any adjective—even the good ones you might bestow upon them. Aquarians believe in the nature of change and evolution, and even though they’re a fixed sign, they may not necessarily believe they are the “same” people they were when they were born.

Aquarians have a strong sense of social justice and making the world a better place and see themselves as just one link in an endless human chain. They are very concerned about others, not because of how others treat them or how they want others to treat them.

"I create my reality. I can change my reality."

Aquarius’ Greatest Gifts

Aquarius is intellectual and analytical, but don’t mistake these attributes for aloofness. Aquarians have deep passion, but they know jumping into something too quickly can cause more harm than good. Aquarians are often big-picture thinkers who can see connections in a way that eludes others. Aquarians have energy, warmth, and a deep desire to get things done. They feel they’re on the planet to change the world and they will do so. Aquarians are idealistic, and will never accept “good enough” until they truly believe it’s good enough.

Aquarius’ Greatest Challenges

Aquarians can sometimes seem as if they don’t care about their individual relationships, or they are holding something else at a higher value. For example, an Aquarian may cancel a date at the last minute because a friend or family member is stuck and needs a ride. It’s not personal, and it’s not a bad thing. An Aquarian has a value system that’s constantly prioritizing the people who need them the most, and sometimes, that puts the people they love in a lurch. Clear communication is necessary to avoid these issues.

Aquarius’ Secret Weapon

Their belief in the innate goodness of people. An Aquarian will never doubt you, even when you doubt yourself. Their ability to see the best in all people, even if people don’t see those qualities in themselves. Aquarians can lift people up, lightening the mood in the process.

Aquarius Power Colors

Air sign Aquarius is drawn to ethereal, light colors that speak to the way Aquarius can deftly go with the flow, handle ideas, and be able to shift direction based on new information. Here, the best colors for Aquarius.

Light blue: Like a brilliant blue sky, a light blue speaks to the beautiful soul of an Aquarius, as well as their connection to ideas, intellect, and the pursuit of a more perfect world.

White: Aquarius looks for the best in people, and is drawn to the color most often associated with innocence.

Yellow: Like the sun, yellow speaks to the eternal optimism of an Aquarius.

Violet: Connected to the crown chakra and representing spirituality, violet speaks to the vivid spirit of an Aquarius.

The colors that Aquarius should avoid are:

Green: This earth tone grounds an Aquarian too much; an Aquarian may put down roots, but is much more comfortable flying.

Red: Affiliated with the root chakra, red can be too passionate and intense for Aquarius, who like to be more cool-minded and analytical when it comes to any decision in their lives.

Orange: Affiliated with the sacral chakra, orange is similarly grounding and at odds with the ethereal personality of an Aquarius.

How to Communicate with an Aquarius Woman

An Aquarius woman loves thought experiments, and sometimes, deep conversations about love and life may not be about your relationship at all. Don’t assume anything and know that an Aquarius sometimes needs to talk things out before she lands on her true beliefs. Give her space to speak.

Text can be annoying for Aquarius, who prefer in real life (IRL) conversations. Aquarius can also be hard to pin down—try to have FaceTime sessions if you can’t see each other for a long period of time, since too much gets lost in translation over email. Aquarian women can feel pinned down by platitudes. Skip the “I love yous” in favor of more extensive communication on what’s going on with you to make you want to say that to her.

How to Communicate with an Aquarius Man

Ditch the texts and be direct. Let him know what you want and what you’ll need, and he’ll honestly tell you if that’s something he can give you. An Aquarius man relies on you to be honest, and while he may be direct in return, he’s not doing so to hurt your feelings. Forget about playing games; they won’t be appreciated, and he will likely feel pinned down and trapped.

"I pay attention to my dreams and easily interpret them.”

Awakening the Inner Aquarius

An Aquarius sees success as happiness, self-fulfillment, and a positive answer to the question, “did I make the world a better place?” An Aquarius doesn’t care so much about titles or paychecks, but understands that these things are important to society. An Aquarius also cares about work-life balance, and may take a lower-paying job if it means more time and flexibility to spend with a family or spend on hobbies or passions. For an Aquarius, “selling out” is the worst form of failure, and an Aquarius will do anything to avoid that happening.
