Aquarius or Kumbha is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac. It is indicated by a Water Bearers. The symbol of Aquarius is indicated by waves of water. In heavens it starts from 300 degrees and extends up to 329 degrees. The Sun stays in Aquarius from 13th February to 14th March as per sidereal zodiac which is followed by Vedic Astrologers and from 21st January to 19th February as per Tropical Zodiac followed by Western Astrologers. The entry and exit dates of the Sun for any particular zodiac sign dose vary by one day during some years.
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Saturn and Uranus (as per modern western astrology), it is fixed, airy, masculine sign, governs ankle and blood circulation and the eleventh house of the horoscope. Its characteristics are originality, progressive attitudes, love for freedom, intellectual, and spiritual. It symbolizes next step toward absolute, personal boundaries are transcended, sense of community and universal values.
Aquarius people have the ability to attract others to them, even though they are often seldom understood. They are considered different, because they do not fall into any known pattern. They are friendly, but detached. They have warmth, yet they are distant. They are far more concerned about humanity as a whole than any one particular individual. Aquarius people want to change the world by bringing new ideas to old conditions. They have a profound desire to bring about advances in art, science, politics, and literature, and to establish a new type of human understanding. They have good powers of concentration and are able to assimilate a lot of information. But there is a tendency to be absentminded. They can be extremely stubborn. They are not frightened of the bizarre, the irrational, or the unknown. If destructive, they will rebel for the pleasure of it, striking out blindly in all directions. They will deliberately do things in an attempt to shock people. They like to participate in group activities, and are soon found changing the established structures of these groups for the better. Most of them prefer not to be bound by schedules and regulations. They are rarely found doing dull, routine work. They have many friends, but only a few intimate ones. The typical Aquarian is not easy to classify, for they are constantly adapting themselves to ever-changing circumstances. Since they are not concerned as to what other people think of them, they often do not bother forming opinions about other people's behavior. They should be sure to get sufficient exercise for good blood circulation, eat properly, and find some type of pastime to help them relax.
Aquarius like all other zodiac signs, contains three Nakshatra or lunar mansion, which are half of the Dhanishta Nakshatra, entire Shatabhisha Nakshatra and two third of the Purva Bhadra Nakshatra.
Aquarius House in Natal Chart indicates: that is where you must have liberality, and reforming. Off with the old and on with the new. Must breakdown old habit patterns that are no longer usable. Water the seeds of love and co-operation, and "Spirit of Love" attitude towards others.

If a person is born between 13th to 22nd February, the Sun remains in the 1st Decan of Aquarius ruled by Saturn. This implies a refined sympathetic, and humane disposition. Fate depends upon the nature of friends and acquaintances. He has the ability to read character, and study human nature. He must be careful not to let his sympathies over-rule his reason and intuition. If a person is born between 23rd February to 4th March, the Sun remains in the 2nd Decan of Aquarius ruled by Mercury. This modifies the tendency to day-dream, as it makes the mind active and capable of intellectual attainment. It does not, however, provide continuity or concentration. Much of the influence will depend on type of occupations one is doing. If a person is born between 5th March to 14th March, the Sun remains in the 3rd Decan of Aquarius ruled by Venus. It improves the Aquarius nature, providing more balance and a higher standard of intellect with refined tastes and clear discrimination. This Decan attracts the native towards the occult and mystical side of life, as it often awakens the clairvoyant faculty.
Aquarius rules the natural Eleventh House of Friends in astrology, so it's no wonder that they appear to be friends with absolutely everyone. Though they have many acquaintances, Aquarius rarely lets people get to know them on a deep level. They are somewhat aloof when it comes to their actual feelings. They are, however, very generous individuals and happy to help anyone in times of need. Do not let this make you too clingy. If an Aquarian sees a possible loss of freedom they are bound to exit. Be sure to keep an open mind, and they will take you to some exciting new places. The perfect Aquarius companion is one with whom they can make an intellectual connection. If you give them their space while keeping conversation lively, they will be your friend forever.
Sociable Aquarius rules the House of Friends, which means that many a courtship may begin in a group setting. Once the Aquarius zeroes in on a target, though, an offbeat and zany romance is likely to ensue. A progressive nonconformist is a blessing to the Aquarians, and if they can give them the space they crave, even better. Aquarians are so often busy caring for the masses that they forget about themselves. A lover who can help the Aquarians get in touch with their innermost feelings will tap into a torrent of emotion waiting to be released. The analytical Aquarian approaches the love slowly, methodically and deliberately. The challenge in love for the Aquarians is intimacy, the emotional and empathetic aspect of love. Without it, love is incomplete, so Aquarians must find that space where they can feel and trust. If that is achieved, love with Aquarius can soar to the stratosphere.
Aquarian children are usually bright and quick to learn. Their school work can fluctuate, especially if they are too involved with outside activities. They have natural creative abilities and are usually musical. They have a lot of charm, but their tendency to be domineering should be subtly stopped. They need plenty of outdoor exercise and should not snack on junk foods for meals. This child prefers to stay away from excessive emotional expression, and may seem rather detached. Aquarius children often develop strong ties to their friends. It is important that this child finds a way to feel unique and special. If that uniqueness is not appreciated, the Aquarius child may become even more emotionally detached from those in his personal environment. A life which is too severely structured may engender a rebellious streak in this child.
Aquarian parents are firm believers in modern educational techniques. They like their children to learn to be independent. They enjoy discussing all types of subjects with their children, but may find themselves trying to impose their own personal views on them. They keep close contact with their children and like to know what is on their minds or is troubling them but they are not harsh disciplinarians.
