The only thing this brings to mind is the four elements: water, wind, earth, and fire. I’m an Aquarius, a water sign, not that I’m particularly sure what that means. Google to the rescue.

Well crap. Google just told me Aquarius is a wind sign, not a water one. Now I’ve got decades of this amorphous belief to unpack.

Here we go.

AQUARIUS is the water bearer. This often confuses people, including Aquarians, into believing it’s a water sign. But Aquarius is most definitely an air sign, probably the most ethereal and abstract of the three. If Gemini relates to self-identity and Libra relates to partnership, Aquarius takes a giant leap into outer space, relating to a universal understanding of air values. Aquarius is concerned with the bigger picture, the large-scale concepts that dreams are made of but can seldom be contained in waking reality. For this reason, Aquarians are just as likely to be involved in larger humanitarian missions as they are to ghost from daily interactions. Their preoccupation with theory often stands in the way of their ability to connect with present, pressing needs.”

Umm…listen. I know a lot of people think zodiac stuff is junk. I dunno, I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking on it, but this paragraph right here is tickling the back of my brain in a strange way. Not that I’m planning to start running my life based on my astrological sign but I have to admit, this makes me a little curious.
