Yourself.

You are drawn to the ideals of companionship and fraternity and will always gravitate to where there are people, for you are a social animal. The key phrase for you is – I know – where you pursue your beliefs in humanitarian causes and values, valuing knowledge for these purposes, an ideal is what motivates you to work, a sense it has a useful purpose and you are prepared to work tirelessly in this area. You treat everyone as your equal and expect the same in return, while you are always loyal to your friends. In work you can let your anxiety about it and your serious view of your responsibilities cause you to get rundown so that you hardly ever relax even when away from it. Your sympathies may be rather impersonal but your response more intellectual than emotional but you are firm in your loyalties. You love the beauties of the world but also your own comfort and wish to possess your fair share of of material possessions.

Friends and lovers.

You will always hold part of yourself aloof in any relationship for you seek a rather impersonal kind of friendship expressing your concerns for fraternity and harmony among all people, rather than a more personal type. You are in any case an individualist who will follow your own path regardless and your actions cannot be second guessed. You believe mutual mental interests are as important as emotional attraction and can form lasting relationships based on little more than a common regard. You respect the opinions of others and expect the same in return. Emotionally you are not demonstrative but underneath you can be affectionate, you need to be understood and allowed the means of expression you choose, even if you appear cold and aloof. Many recluses are Aquarians because of the difficulty others have in understanding their need for individual expression. Where you do achieve understanding you are likely to preserve that relationship for life even if it does have an air of impersonality to it. You will always keep something of yourself back believing that over familiarity breeds contempt and masks are a necessary defence to your most inner and secret thoughts and feelings.

Sex drive.

Your idealism in general is also carried over to your sex life where you place friendship higher than sexual relations and are slow to let your defences down. However though you can be detached and cool about sex you are also something of an experimenter and can go to the other extreme of trying out many partners and methods of sexual expression simply for the novelty of it. Your belief in the community of man and woman then takes on a sexual expression as well. You may be tempted by anything from communal living to group sex. More likely you will slowly learn to open up to your mate and respond with a fresh gusto to their overtures, for you like to look after the sexual needs of those you love. In many ways though you will regard it as a higher compliment to be seen as a good friend rather than a good lover to your mate.

Yourself.

You are exceptionally capable of absorbing the moods, subtle undercurrents and circumstances of life so that you are very responsive as a person. The key phrase for you is – I believe – since it is necessary with your innate feeling for the problems of humanity to face things as they are and believe that you can solve them through your own abilities. You will be drawn to serve people in your work, while in the arts, especially dance and music, you are likely to have exceptional talent. At your best you can be unselfish, caring for the downtrodden, devoted and the soul of sympathy, but with your awareness of the subtleties of a situation you can become indecisive and find it hard to make decisions and function in the real world on a practical level. In the first part of life you are more likely to be career orientated since you realise you need to take care of the material aspects if your search for meaning in life is to be pursued. You follow your own guiding lights and preserve your uniqueness this way since forms of restraint are abhorrent to you. You like nothing better than inhabiting your own dreamworld but will find the world itself becomes inviting once you have found an outlet for your creativity and drive to improve the common lot of humanity.

Friends and lovers.

You are a romantic even in your choice of friends since you expect so much from them and are very dependent on them for a sense of yourself. Your good humour, sympathy and warm heartedness naturally attracts people to you and anything petty or mean in a relationship is usually beyond you except where you get jealous of the successes of your friends which you will take very personally with so much of yourself bound up with them. You need to choose your friends wisely for this reason, you can be easily led and the wrong people can take you down paths you should not travel with your well developed sensitivities. You need to probe more into the motivations and values of people before you let them into your inner circle. In the selection of a mate, this applies even more. You can let your expectations of them become too high, any small upset can be used as the excuse for breaking the link, to your regret, it will help to enjoy lovers and friends for what they are rather than what you would like them to be. You have an inclination to dream about your ideal lover rather than actively to go out and seek them, with such high standards you may need to be less demanding and more prepared to take them as they come.

Sex drive.

You are open to sexual persuasion and can easily believe that the pursuit of your sexual gratification in sensual delight is what you really seek rather than it being excessive responsiveness to sexual stimulus. You find it hard to say no and can easily give in to temptation which can lead to a very promiscuous lifestyle and infidelity in relationships. You are naturally sympathetic, a deep well of emotionality and rather mysterious if not strange to others who do not have your benevolent and hospitable concern for their fellows. You are highly susceptible to the pleasures of the flesh, even a touch or brush from your partner can send shivers down your spine of sexual thrill. You value sex partly because it allows you to fulfill your fantasies but without some control of your sensual nature, dissipation, alcoholism and general revelling in the baser side of sex will become a danger.
