I don’t think a lot of people understand the Aquarius archetype or just like…. the sign of Aquarius…. at all. People think they’re not “supposed to” understand them because they are Aquarius; they’re weird, ruled by uranus, offbeat and eccentric. But the archetype itself is the water bearer: they are an air sign. The last air sign. They are here for the conscious collective mind; they rule the 11th house of social networking and friends, hopes & dreams/aspirations. They are the water bearer because they are here to nourish and use their knowledge to aid and help others. They want to shower the world with their knowledge and guidance. Uranus is the higher octave of mercury; it’s genius. Aquarius is the mastery level of thinking. He uses his knowledge to help and look out for others rather than themselves; they use what they know to better the world they live in. Which is why they are associated with rebellion and being advocates, they fight against the social norm of the blatant negativity we see everyday and use what they know to go against it to make it better for all. They represent the conscious collective all in one. They are the 11th sign, the sign before pisces. Pisces, being the last sign, rules the unconscious collective, everything we cannot see. Pisces rules every universal being, visual or not.
Aquarius watches over all of us, as we are all friends to aquarius. It’s like they know everyone somewhat personally, every time they greet someone it’s like they’ve met them in the past and they’re finally seeing them again after years. They are so friendly even if they cannot see it in themselves, and teach others how to be a friend. How to lean on them to help. How to help. It’s very easy to laugh and be yourself around them, they believe individuality is the best quality a person can have. They want to teach everyone most of all that being yourself, free and independent, against what others want you to be, is who you should be and deserve to be.
