Aquarius 'The Water Bearer' is the second last sign of the zodiac. An Aquarian lives in the real world, but he will talk about the future. He is very kind and peace loving, but likes going against the conventions every now and then. Usually, he is very soft spoken, but can surprise you by passing very offhanded remarks and statements. Every second person on this earth is his friend and he uses the term 'friend' very often. Every new thing interests an Aquarius, be it the new person at office, the new book at store or the new bartender at his usual pub.
He loves to experiment, to explore. His next interest may be you and he will start dissecting you under the microscopic eyes. Then, just as you begin to think that you are the most important interest in his life, he will turn away, find something new and will be busy exploring again. You will be left all embarrassed and fuming. If you are someone who has an ego, it's better to be miles away from an Aquarius person. His eyes will always have an unclear, distant look. His personality traits include obstinacy, creativity, vanity and a love for freedom.
On the other hand, his characteristics profile also comprises of humor, diplomacy, kindness, compassion and coyness. One moment, he will be surrounded by a crowd, immersing himself in the security of so many friends. However, soon he will feel extremely lonely and will want to be left alone. Whether he is gay or gloomy, one thing is for sure; an Aquarian will always be analyzing the people around him. In the process, he may ask you the most personal questions, without even batting an eyelid.
Even though Aquarians have numerous friends, they don't have many close buddies. They are most interested in quantity and their friendships seldom last the entire life. Being steady in one relationship is not an Aquarian's cup of tea. There is always so much to discover, how can he remain tied to a few people only. However, if you do manage to touch his heart, he may come back to see what he failed to notice earlier. He lives in the future and people find it very difficult to cope up with him.
This brings a sense of isolation from the rest of the world. An Aquarian is a genius, if he does not cross the line separating it from eccentricity. His personality is the perfect symbol of an odd mix of frostiness, realism and unconventional volatility. He is a friend to anyone and everyone. Though he has his bouts of solitude, he will soon be back to his normal self again. Just remember not to disturb him when he wants to be alone. Ignore him and he will come back again, all happy and cheerful.
Aquarians dislike commitments of any kind. However, once they have made it, they will stick to it fully. They give their opinion very frankly, but never ever try to force them on anyone. In return, don't every dictate how they should live their life. They respect individuality and expect the same from you. An Aquarian is not a crusader and will rarely be fighting for a cause. He believes in revolution, but lets other people do the work required for bringing about the same. Once an Aquarian has made up his mind, it is difficult to move him.
He is full of shocks and surprises and will hardly let you know what his motives are. He doesn't trust people easily, not until he has scrutinized each and every aspect of their personality. However, once he trusts you and makes you his friend, nobody in this world can sway him against you. An Aquarian has an extremely good concentration power. Even though it looks as if he is not even listening to you, he will know each and every word you said. He doesn't have a good memory, but he seems to know everything that is to be remembered.
Aquarians have an amazing sixth sense and their intuition is very strong. They can also know your innermost desires, without even having a word with you. They can convey their thoughts as easily too. An Aquarian loves changes in everything, except his own personality. He also hates dishonesty and trickery, as much as he dislikes borrowing and lending money. However, he may, at times, fool you in completely harmless and subtle ways. In case he lends you something, be sure to give it back to him on the said time and date.
An Aquarian is not the one to take a broken promise or bad debt easily. He keeps his word and pays his dues on time, so, why can't you. Accepting conventions and authority is beyond him, but he will respect them nonetheless. He loves freedom and pinning him down is a task that most of the people cannot accomplish. An Aquarian is far ahead of you, but still it is advisable to try to catch him. Your success cannot be guaranteed, but you will surely come out a little wiser in the process.
