Signs of the Zodiac
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 19)
The Water Bearer. Ruling planet: Uranus. Element: Air. Quality: Inventiveness. Ability: To see the future. You are the enthusiastic inventors of the world. Able to see the world as it should be or could be rather than as it is, you have the capacity to set things in motion. Of course, there are a few of you out there who are more conservative, and if this is you, go back and read the Capricorn section. Detached and impersonally friendly to all, you have many acquaintances. You are a dedicated humanitarian and very tolerant—of everything but intolerance. You function well in groups and organizations as long as you can maintain your independence. Freedom is extremely important to you, and you need to be able to do your work your own way.
