Aquarius, awkward or sociable??..
I don’t quite think that I understand yet what Aquarian’s are supposed to be like.. Are they weird/social misfits and rebellious and indifferent to the opinions of others, or are they socially oriented, and sensitive towards group harmony and focused on upholding social structures and participation?
Also the ones thatI know aren’t that weird.

Sometimes it seems from what I read that they are all of the above

Interesting... I´m 100% :181: (Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, South Node and Signature sign) and I´m awkward :61:

This doesn´t mean I don´t sympathize in a group, people generally consider me "contributing", but I´m always the one crossing boundaries, suggesting new approaches,... I´m not a leader like Leo or a do´er like Aries. Just the rebel of a group, but a rebel with a cause, a better organization.

I don´t have many friends, my Asperger´s probably a bitch here, and I act very differently than other people.

Omg I don´t like my Moon sign at all

if you meet an aquarius, leave the place :61: :61: :61: :61:
even in relationships they´re slightly unstable and not very romantic but more seeing you like their best friend.

when I talk about aquarius they´re not all like that but I still needed to say what I personally think :61: :61:

Actually, kinda true.

This instability is making life a bit less dull, isn´t it?

less boring you mean ? yes but it make them also a bit superficial it´s like they like talking to you, laughing, having fun etc. but answer to your messages a few days later or sometimes the same day or they don´t really answer to all of your questions when they are important so my Saturn in Taurus is like ...

Are you serious ? lol they tend to be a bit superficial in their attitude. I don´t like that.

Also a bit cold/weird/rational. I´m not necessarily better sometimes but I don´t need a 2nd person like me :61: :61: :61:

I´m completely guilty on the messages part. My sister even argues with me about answering her messages.

I just don´t see the urge to consider messages as "instant"...

Yes but it´s like acting superficial for me and they´re not romantic at all :10: :10:

Interesting responses! Yes I have noticed that people with a several planets in Aquarius can be on "the spectrum" - but it isn´t all negative. It really depends on the whole chart I think and how many planets are in Aquarius and where in the chart too. One of my very best friends is on the spectrum. He´s brilliant but has trouble with relationships. Yet, we can talk for hours and he´s a great listener. We get each other. We think the same way about most things . . . even though I have no planets in Aquarius.

There is such a wide range of responses to any sign that we have to be fair to each person and learn how they are responding to it without slapping a label on them. In a lot of ways, I´m not a typical Aries Sun and many people are surprised to know I am one.

That said, I have found Aquarians to can be very caring and warm on one side - but also - cold and aloof on the other. I think they tend to be smart and inventive - but then their ideas can be sort of out there - in a way that really doesn´t make sense to other people. It most likely depends upon the other influences in the chart how grounded in "practical use of their ideas" they are. Many are inventors - have great ideas - so if the rest of the chart supports good relating skills - they can have their cake and eat it too.

I have four members of my family with ASC, Sun or Moon in Aquarius - and I have three friends with strong Aquarius placements. I have Uranus square Sun - which is my own dose of Aquarian energy. I think it helps me stand up for myself and tune into myself while much of my chart is about being giving - so - for me, it feels like a balancing placement.

One brother with Aquarius Sun is very disorganized - which can be an Aquarian trait - but very personal and social. Yet, I´d say he was not good at tuning into other people´s feelings, even if he liked helping them. He had great ideas for making the world a better place, but was not good at implementing any of them. He just had the ideas - and I thought they were really good ones. But then he had crazy ideas too - wonky - didn´t make sense ideas. His logic was confusing to me.

Another friend with Aquarius Sun is quite disorganized too - and doesn´t reach out to people on a personal level - but is very involved in her church and helping people. My Mom had an Aquarian Moon and was emotionally quite aloof to others. She was expressive of her own emotions, but not tuned into other people´s.

As usual, we have to look at the whole chart. My overall experience with Aquarius - is that there is often a disconnect of some sort. It´s a mental sign - so their heads can be somewhere in between solid to wonky - and it seems they don´t connect so well with others in some way or other. But, I would not assume all Aquarians have that difficulty.

Awkward and sociable

I think Aquarians are pretty social at heart, but get disillusioned by some things that happen during social situations...drama, gossip, boring conversations...

They may also have an unusual side to themselves too, which may or may not make them uncomfortable in social situations...

I think once they find their crowd, they´re pretty good though...

Sometimes the mind is just blank. Open to receive new ideas/information. I see Aquarius moon as a buffer stop of emotions.

I kinda like your phrase - buffer stop. My Mom with the Aquarius Moon had Libra Sun and Taurus rising - so she was very social - but mostly talked about herself. She could go on and on about her own emotions but tended to stop anyone who wanted to express theirs. She was all output and wanted no input. It was interesting.

"Yet, we can talk for hours and he´s a great listener."

True ! I´m like that too :):)

"She was expressive of her own emotions, but not tuned into other people´s."

I personally think I can feel and perceive other people´s emotion through gut feeilngs with my :160: :191: ASC.

If someone is sad and stuffs I can perceive and understand his-her sadness or hapiness or any other feeling but with my Aquarius Moon it won´t influence my inner emotions. I help and listen to people be compassionate but it won´t break my inner emotional balance, that´s what I mean.

I wonder considering We astrology believers know the truth of what may be causing “these issues” behind these labels that we might be more understanding and accept everyone as different on the basis of their star signs.

Also after all even a Capricorn or Aquarius ascendant may be diagnosed with a cancer sun, moon and Venus 😅
Though I know Capricorn’s/Aqua moons who pretend? That they have the correct responses without the emotional backing lol

So many arbitrary qualities we all have!
Simply not being the most skilled in socialising is not the worst astrological crime

boring conversations lol YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

If there´s smth I can´t change in relationships is my need of having interesting conversations. when people are too superficial to talk, don´t go deeper in topics or don´t have anything interesting to say or always talk about the same things it´s a bit complex for me to stay friend with them.

Yes - that is my experience too with some Aquarians - it isn´t like having a Cancer or Pisces Moon who feels other people´s feelings as intensely as their own -and has trouble sorting them out. It´s more like being able to stay separate, even if being able to feel their feelings, have great sympathy, compassion and understanding for the other. My friend is like that. But my Mom was quite detached from other people. I don´t think she tuned in well at all and had little sympathy for others. It was all about her - but then - she had other influences in the chart . . .

This is interesting for a libra-Aqua/air dominant person. Most people assume that they are the best at communicating

Ha funny you say this, but then you are a Virgo. Most virgos I have met are not superficial and dislike false pretences

Surely, we all have our strengths and weakness - and we´re all imperfect human beings. I think those on the spectrum can feel quite wounded in their relationships - and so coming to terms with the difficulty is important for peace of mind and self-acceptance. But - those of us not on the spectrum can feel just as wounded for other reasons - so - there you have it. Relationships are hard.

I bet if we were all honest, we´d admit there are parts of ourselves we´d like to change, but have not been successful in doing so - and so - we must either accept this part of ourselves - or be miserable about it. What we don´t want to do is lash out at others for not understanding us . . . as that doesn´t help. I love that old saying - be kind, as everyone is fighting their own battles - or something like that.

Yes I think that not liking this superficiality is caused by my Virgo Sun and Taurus Saturn !!

Absolutely, but my point was that maybe it would be best to not evaluate other people’s emotional reactions/other superficial characteristics considering what we know and still call it a medical disorder.

Besides because of the overlapping criteria many of us may find ourselves as “diagnosis-able” but conceal it well under a pleasant appearing ascendant

A Libra can be a control freak. They are quite sensitive because they do this energy exchange with people naturally - but if a Libra grows up in a negative environment, he or she can either withdraw or becoming controlling or both - because they are so sensitive to the incoming energy. My mom was controlling and tuned into her own self and needs and wanted to be the center of attention. Not very mature or conscious. Libra Sun in 5th. It happens.

Fair enough, yeah I think I’ve seen this kind of thing with a Aquarius. Though they still continued with the facade of being social/caring

In fact this relates to my above comments about autism, she appeared social but didn’t have many emotional displays hardly ever

It’s difficult to say without knowing her ascendant even though if she was actually emotional underneath
