They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Many are strongly imaginative and
psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to begin, is much anticipated by
psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian
philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower
existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life. On the other hand it
can help the many who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the
universal recognition of the brotherhood of man, and to embark on scientific research to fulfill their
philanthropic ideals of benefiting mankind. When some cause or work of this nature inspires them,
they are capable of such devotion to it that they may drive themselves to the point of exhaustion and
even risk injuring their health.
Among the faults to which they are liable are fanatical eccentricity, wayward egotism, excessive
detachment and an inclination to retreat from life and society, and a tendency to be extremely
dogmatic in their opinions. Aquarians can be a threat to all they survey or a great boon for humanity
in general. Circumstances - for example, continuous opposition to a cause they hold dear - may
cause the atrophy of the openness of mind that is one of the Aquarian's most attractive traits. They
may express a lack of integrity in broken promises, secretiveness or cunning. Simmering anger and
resentment, rudeness or, worse, a tense, threatening silence which may suddenly burst out in
eruptions of extreme temper, these are all part of the negative side of the Aquarian. This can also
reveal itself in a sustained hatred for enemies that is capable of enlarging itself into a misanthropy
toward the whole of mankind.
As Aquarius is said to govern the legs from knees to ankles and the circulation of blood, its natives
are susceptible to ailments particularly in the legs and ankles, such as cramps, and are also liable to
spasmodic and nervous complaints, as well as wind, catarrh, diarrhea, dropsy, goiter and delirium
tremens - so that the avoidance of alcohol is important for those Aquarians who have a taste for it.
