This Constellation, “Aquarius” — the eleventh sign of the Zodiac — exerts its influence from January 20 to February 18.
It endows the persons born under it with a special aptitude for the fine arts and secures popular recognition for their remarkable works. Besides, it gives them a long life and lofty position, and makes of them orators and authors.
However, they will have none but themselves to blame if they are persecuted or even exiled.
They will have graceful, gentle, simple, and straightforward natures. Although violent when driven to wrath, they quiet down quickly and bear no grudge.
The will-power will be firm, but lacking in logic and be apt to rush to its goal unmindful of obstacles over which it will ride rough shod. The Aquarius subjects will be fond of solitude, laborious and diligent, patient and persevering. They are well endowed for serious studies, and for ruling over other people; they are always dreaming of riches and honors.
Passionate in all their undertakings, their opinions are ardent, steadfast and strongly convincing.
The property the subject will acquire will not be permanently in his possession, but be taken from him repeatedly through the intrigues of evil-minded people, some of them his pretended friends, who will, at times, resort to violence to deprive him of his own. Through members of his family, he will come to much money, but other blood relations will damage his position and reputation.
The Aquarius subjects will be great travelers, sometimes against their will; but these journeys will generally turn out badly and interfere disastrously with the financial prospects and the social position of the subjects; their health also will suffer on that account.
They will have few brothers and sisters, if any; they will receive from them little else but unpleasant, even cruel, treatment.
On a short trip, the subject will run some serious bodily risk, probably on the water or through fire-arms or quadrupeds.
His father will die of sudden death, or meet with unexpected financial reverses. Scientific researches may be the cause of either disaster.
Aquarius subjects are often blessed with twins. Death in child-birth is among the probabilities; the infants that will come to them will be delicate in health and hard to raise.
Among diseases that will afflict them are troubles of the stomach and the lungs, violent sick headaches and brain neuralgia.
The Constellation Leo, in whose resort all unions between sexes are placed, foretells for the Aquarius subjects a marriage with an artist, actor or professional musician.
The career of the subject will be full of ups and downs, the latter often of the most disheartening kind; but he will always come out a victor, either through his unfaltering efforts, or through the opportune assistance of his friends.
For his friends will be many and really devoted. People in high position will contribute to the subject’s final triumph over his difficulties.
But his enemies also will be many and relentless, using both hidden and open, violent means to undo him; he will conquer them through a series of almost providential circumstances.
Still, the risks ahead of him are many, mostly due to his own rashness and his ruinous love of change. His friends will often quarrel with him on that account. But Aquarius will bestow upon him public esteem, and the kindly advice of the wise will help him to reach a pre-eminent position among his fellow-citizens.
Those born under this constellation have a bilious-sanguine temperament in Southern climes, and a nervous-sanguine physical disposition in Northern latitudes.
