Aquarius is the sign of the unconventional. This sign doesn't like the traditional, the way things have always been - this sign needs things to be different!
This means that wherever you have Aquarius in your natal chart, that area is one where YOU need things to be different. You're not totally normal with whatever it rules. You're totally out of this world!
Aquarius is an air sign, along with Gemini and Libra. The air signs are the signs of the mind, and are intellectual in nature. They tend to be sociable and engaging. Aquarius is no exception, and actually rules large groups and your friends and acquaintances.
Aquarius is also a fixed sign, along with Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio, The fixed signs tend to stick to things, so this makes Aquarius a little different from the other two air signs in that it can stick to whatever it sets its mind to fairly easily.
Aquarius is governed by the planet Uranus. Uranus is the changemaker, the one who shakes things up and makes everything different. Uranus sees the future, and understands that in order for us to have what we hope for and dream about, change is required from us.
So, Aquarius is a sign that needs things to be different, and can get bored easily if it's not. It may have little patience for the conventional. The areas of life ruled by the house in your natal chart that falls in Aquarius get this energy. It's where you must be different!
