Aquarius sees possibilities at the edge of the future. Many are ahead-of-their-time as visionaries, trendsetters, inventors, genius-artists, eccentrics, humanitarians. Aquarius has a mental sovereignty that gives them distance from the noise of life. They move in networks, and are very social, though also fiercely private.

At the extreme edges, Aquarius is unreachable, fixed in their ideas, condescending.

Aquarius thrives at the cutting edge, and keeps up with the latest in art, movies, technology, music and style.
