The Ascendant and its meaning in Astrology
Discover what it means to have an Aquarius ascendant and read all about your ascendant.
The rulers of your ascendant are Saturn and Uranus. These two planets have an opposite yet complementary influence. Uranus makes you impulsive and individualistic, while Saturn makes you behave in a timid but well-controlled manner. Uranus pushes you to making radical yet eccentric changes, while Saturn invites you to proceed according to traditional and socially accepted values. Even though they exercise contradictory influences, these two planets ultimately strengthen your sense of independence and your tenacity. Uranus pushes you towards adventure and surprises, while Saturn brings you down to earth and the harsh reality of life.
The intuition that you have and which helps you to be the inspirer of ideas is from Uranus, while the discipline you need to fix your spasmodic behaviour comes from Saturn.
You like to regulate life, not just your own but the lives of others, your children’s lives, even your colleagues’. You are exceptionally good at organising your practical affairs and like to keep your ideas and activities up-to-date. You are completely focused on your goals and it doesn’t bother you how long they take, how tired you will get or how many adversities you encounter. You will remain in a relationship or leave it in search of a new intellectual challenge.
You have a cheery personality and an open and friendly disposition towards others, which makes you much loved. You often win the title of most popular and reliable person as you have many talents and a clever mind. You don’t trust others easily and, in order to allow yourself to remain free in a relationship, you must first try it out and undergo many vicissitudes.
You prefer to go out with many people and to make your choice over time, so as to be certain and ready to express your feelings.
You try to focus all your attention on your family as you feel it is your support and your social achievement. Even so, you must learn to control your tendency to impose your opinions. To free yourself from outbursts and not to test the tolerance levels of your partner or friends, to maintain the balance and harmony in your relationships.
It would be good to broaden your lifestyle and to learn to deepen your human relationships so as to keep them, otherwise there is a danger that you will become isolated from others and cut a lonely figure.

You have a strong but conflicted personality. You feel a great need for action but don’t know where to channel your energies. On the one hand you want to assimilate the new ideas but, on the other, you don’t want to abandon your old, traditional and familiar methods. Whichever path you choose, you are certain to make it.

Aquarius with Aquarius ascendant
You are very free and independent and want constantly to be moving in various spheres and to be involved with new and unusual things. You like to be up-to-date and faithfully follow new technology.
