This is the element that connects all other elements, even though it might seem less relevant, invisible as it is. Still, this is the element that can be found in all others.
The element of Air gives us room to breathe, widens our lungs, and with them, opens our Soul to personal freedom. All signs that belong to this element have a strong need to feel liberated and free.
Aquarius is an air sign, and as such, uses his mind at every opportunity. If there is no mental stimulation, they are bored and lack a motivation to achieve the best result. To truly succeed in personal growth and overall development, the most important thing for Airy individuals is to stop talking and start doing concrete, practical moves towards fulfillment. They are balanced by the element of Earth and need a healthy daily routine, with their meals repeated at the same time every day, and physical activity to remain aware of their physical existence. If they forget to eat, for example, this hole in their stomach will have an effect on any rational plan they’ve had. The importance of fulfilling their physical needs is primal and irreplaceable.

lacking motivation or bored – Matilda by Roald Dahl

Ruling Planet: Uranus
Words Associated with Uranus: Freedom, Astrology, lightning, risk, humanity, crossroads, chaos, surprises, separation
Colors: Metallic, Silver
The ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus has a timid, abrupt and sometimes aggressive nature, but it also gives Aquarius visionary quality. They are capable of perceiving the future and they know exactly what they want to be doing five or ten years from now.
Uranus also gave them the power of quick and easy transformation, so they are known as thinkers, progressives and humanists. They feel good in a group or a community, so they constantly strive to be surrounded by other people.
The biggest problem for Aquarius-born is the feeling that they are limited or constrained. Because of the desire for freedom and equality for all, they will always strive to ensure freedom of speech and movement. Aquarius-born have a reputation for being cold and insensitive persons, but this is just their defense mechanism against premature intimacy. They need to learn to trust others and express their emotions in a healthy way.
This is a planet of eccentricity and always speaks of individuals who are different, strange, out of the ordinary, in some sort of fight with the system and the state, and among them scientists, astrologers, homosexuals, and all of us who stand out and have a humane initiative to fight for someone’s rights, including our own. It is a planet of gambling, chance, risk, leading us to dangerous activities when afflicted, and sometimes endangering our wellbeing by chance, strange circumstances, or extreme choices that we make in spite of rational opinions, especially those of our fathers. It is a ruler of all humanitarian efforts and doesn’t care so much about the individual as much as the utopian image of our entire society.
