Aquarius, the water bearer, in astronomy is a constellation lying right between Capricornus and Pisces. Aquarius is also the 11th house ruler in astrology. The Aquarius season runs from January 20-February 19 and is represented by the picture of a woman or man pouring out water. This may be because back in ancient times, these dates coincided with a time of great rain and floods.

The Aquarius needs no one and can be seen as emotionally unattached by some, but they are just thinking way bigger than we are! Even though Saturn did rule Aquarius many years ago, Uranus is now the modern ruler of Aquarius and Uranus governs societies, clubs, and any group based on humanitarian or progressive ideals. Uranus, the planet of sudden and unexpected changes, rules freedom and originality. In society, it rules radical ideas and people, as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures.
