The energy of Aquarius is spontaneous, free, independent, and original. There is an attraction to new things, ideas, and technology. Aquarius rules the ankles and wrists. It is associated with revolutions, science, social progress, peers, and the new age.
When pulled out of their center, Aquarius can be rebellious, willful, or confrontative to protect freedom and independence.
The key for Sun in Aquarius is to reconnect to the freedom and spontaneity at the heart's core and the joy and aliveness of the inner child. From this place, there can be a sharing and kinship to the unique offerings of others.
Aquarius is often pictured as the water bearer. Water is being poured out of a vessel while looking backward. What is being depicted is the offering of knowledge that is alive, vital, flowing, and shared. In many cultures, flowing water purifies and removes past impressions. Nevertheless, the water bearer is looking past his shoulder, indicating that often, what is offered as change in the present is in response to what has been in the past.
Original, Innovative, Unconventional, Freedom, Friendly.
Rebellious, Confronting, Willful.

The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge
The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge: is a revelation of the essence of the Signs and what they mean at the deep transformational level of the Soul. The Signs reveal the deep meaning of your Sun Sign, not only where you tend to get caught, but what frees you and takes you forward.
The Signs takes astrology back to its spiritual roots, its relationship to the chakras, and the hidden knowledge passed down from ancient times. Each Sign holds its share of that knowledge.
The Signs: The Ancient Knowledge
The ancient depiction of Aquarius is the water bearer. Some people mistake this as indicating that Aquarius is a water sign, but it is an air sign.
It is the only depiction of a sign with their fame and contribution expressing forward, as depicted by the fluttering of the clothes, even though Aquarius is looking backward.
Nevertheless, the downfall of Aquarius is that although they pour out of the freedom of their feelings and are forward-leaning, their gaze looks backward towards Capricorn. The consequence of reacting to the past rather than acting from the freedom of their hearts is that the revolution often reembodies the past.
The ankles are related to Aquarius, as are the wrists, as each allows great freedom of movement as they engage uneven terrain or free the hand's orientation. The Glyph of Aquarius shows the ripples of change on the outside and the inside.
With the moon in Aquarius, there is a pull towards feeling free and a need for independence. A parent may have been unpredictable or even emotionally inconsistent.
When not in touch with their feeling of freedom and spontaneity, people with the moon in Aquarius risk setting feelings aside or being overly objective with their feelings.
There are several things that the Sun in Aquarius needs to be mindful of in order not to set themselves up during the Mercury Retrograde Cycle. Often the issue is about the need to re-establish a sense of autonomy and freedom when there is a sense of feeling caught, trapped, held back, or challenged. For example, suppose the response toward protecting freedom is reactive, willful, rebellious, or aggressive. As better judgment is cast aside, important details are overlooked because of the heated exchange or the need to re-assert the will.
Especially at the beginning of the retrograde cycle, it is important for cool heads to prevail and to re-check if a decision or course of action is beneficial.
