Your Aquarius Child

by Wendy on January 26th, 2017

No amount of parental guidance can supersede the knowledge of your child’s natal chart. The information provided, once understood, can empower your ability to guide your child, based on their unique personality, in a specific way which appeals to their intrinsic nature and as such ensures a much better overall outcome.

(If this description does not accurately describe your Aquarius child, there may be strong modifiers coming from other planets or sensitive points in the Natal chart which can overshadow Aquarius characteristics.)

Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)

The universal family

Aquarius Sun babies have a quality of unpredictability. They may suddenly cease to respond to a regular routine of feeding and sleeping, causing much concern. The answer here may be to change the routine, as Aquarius follows inner patterns of response. Experimentation will likely provide the solution. Aquarius likes new things and new ideas and will evidence a free spirit quite early, making it easy for a parent to feel rejected. At an age when other children cling to their parents, this youngster may show a preference for independence. Often there is a sudden dislike of what was pleasing yesterday, but don’t take it personally. It’s just Aquarius Sun’s natural nonconforming nature at work.

Objective and logical, Aquarius has a mental approach to life and therefore school rarely presents difficulty. In fact, in kindergarten they may well show surprising independence and resent being escorted to school! This is an individualistic youngster — unconventional, unique, valuing the freedom to do and go without restriction. This child will bring home unusual friends, and pets. Patience on the part of more orthodox parents is necessary in order to avoid alienating the child, who may be labeled a rebel. But forcing conformity will only backfire. Aquarius will simply conceal forbidden activities. Guidance is necessary, and though coercion won’t work, appealing to logic and reasonableness will.

They may show an early interest in science and politics or subjects that seem unusual or experimental. They possess a good mind and have unusually good ideas. It would be well to praise them for their inventiveness and acknowledge their ideas for this is what they desire. They are not necessarily concerned with the implementation of their ideas so much as your appreciation for them. Remember to work things around where they have lots of choices and they think that their choices are their idea.

Many find the Aquarian ability to detach as a problem, however, they are capable of dealing with very emotional issues with detachment and little or no emotional involvement. This can be extremely helpful for those in the political arena or those in the medical and counseling professions.

They are very loyal and will stand up for what they believe is right and fight against the system for the underdog. You will find your Aquarian with a strange group of friends which they will strenuously protect and defend. Friendship is very important to their development as they intuitively see everyone in a spirit of brotherly love, and as such need the dimension of group social activities. They feel more comfortable in a group setting or being part of a team or cause than standing out alone. An Aquarius is rarely a loner.

Prejudice is alien to them. People are people and boundaries and borders are merely lines on paper and have no real meaning. Equity is their battle cry, perhaps because they secretly feel they are alien to this planet!
