Sun Sign: Aquarius/Uranus
Decanate: Aquarius/Venus; Numbers: 2, 9
You are a sensitive, caring person, yet you’re able to step back and view your own feelings with intellectual objectivity. Matters of the heart intensify your struggle between romanticism and rational realism. You seesaw between Aquarian independence and emotional detachment on one side and your longing to establish an intense and total connection with your partner on the other. You yearn for intimacy, yet your fear of emotional vulnerability makes you hide your feelings behind a façade of nonchalance. Your challenge is to find a way to merge the disparate aspects of your character—to enjoy love instead of avoiding it.
Your birthday falls in the third decanate of Aquarius, ruled by the love planet Venus. Consequently, you’re more passionate and romantic than those born earlier in the sign. Sex is more consuming and less of a mental exchange for you than for other water bearers. Instead of just thinking and talking about what you’re going to do, you just go ahead and do it. A thoughtful, obliging lover, you’re as focused on your partner’s gratification as your own.
You have a strong sex drive, and usually all it takes to turn you on is a subtle reminder of the pleasures awaiting you in your lover’s arms. You like being touched and lightly stroked around the calves and ankles. A romantic seduction scene, complete with music and scented candles, is a nice way to get your motor started.
You are extremely idealistic and devoted to those you love. The problem is that you’re as likely to fall passionately in love with an ideal as with a real person. If your partner fails to live up to your expectations, you can be deeply disappointed. It may not be very long before you decide to move on to another “ideal mate.”
