Aquarius, the Water Bearer, is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac. Souls born from January 21 to February 20 are born under the Western Zodiac sign of Aquarius.
Aquarius is a “Fixed” sign. In the language of astrology this means Aquarians preserve and sustain what was started in the Cardinal phase of the Zodiac. Fixed is one of three different modalities with the others being Cardinal and Mutable. The Fixed signs include Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
Aquarius is also a masculine sign or polarity sign, which mean Aquarians are assertive, bold, and expressive. All masculine signs are this way. ’Aquarius’ element or quadruplicity is “Air” meaning Aquarians are very mental, intellectual, intelligent, and logical just like the other Air signs of Gemini and Libra. Air signs are typically communicative, social, friendly, gregarious, curious, inquisitive, objective, tolerant, and unbiased.
Aquarius corresponds to the 11th House of the Zodiac known as the Friends House and the traits of this house include social change, hopes and wishes, pursuit of knowledge (including the occult and metaphysics), social awareness, group dynamics, ideals to live by, self-employment, humanitarian concerns, technology, liberation, and defiance against authority.

Astrological Health Profile

Medical astrologer Judith Hill states the following about Aquarius pertaining to health:
“Aquarius vital force can be easily depleted through excessive involvement in computers and other electromagnetically toxic devices, or exposure to fluorescent lighting. The upper body should be strengthened. Davidson cites that no sign is more responsive to barometric changes than is Aquarius. The Aquarian native needs to build a strong heart muscle. Generally speaking, Aquarians are “healthy” and rarely sick with normal, everyday ailments; instead, their problems are often puzzling and difficult to diagnose. Salt is important for natives of this sign (salt conducts electricity). The Aquarian nervous system needs restful, soothing influences.”
Despite a plethora of diseases Aquarius is prone to, Aquarians should embrace and remember the words of astrologer Eleanor Kirk who states:
“All these ailments, and every other known to man can be entirely dominated, forever cast out, by those who realize that mind is the master, and the body the servant of the mind.”
The 12 Cell Salts necessary for optimal health and well-being correlate and correspond to the 12 Zodiac signs and thus Aquarius too like all other eleven signs has been assigned a specific and particular cell salt.
The necessary cell salt of Aquarius is Sodium Chloride. Because this cell salt may be difficult to find, supplement it with sea salt (1/4 teaspoon in a glass of room temperature water every morning).
WARNING: Avoid commercial white table salt (sodium chloride), i.e., Morton’s Table Salt. Aquarians need to take care of their lower legs and ankles which are areas they are very prone to injury-wise.
