Aquarians…..

1:51 pm



Aquarius…..



Your element: Air



Your ruling planets: Uranus

Symbol: The Water Bearer

Your stone: Amethyst

Life Pursuit: To understand life’s mysteries

Vibration: High frequency



Aquarian’s Secret Desire: To be unique and original 




Description:

Special note for Aquarians: With the new Millennium heralding the Dawn of the Age of Aquarius, at this time, ready or not, your sign is regarded as the zodiac’s leader. You are the trendsetter for the future and because of this high responsibility, many under born your sign will be undergoing at this time, as we approach the Millennium, the pressure of personal change (particularly in your values and what makes you content and happy). Yours has always been a philanthropic sign. Now more than ever these qualities will be highlighted.

Those born under the sign of Aquarius not only march to a different drummer, they make up new music as they go along. They are ‘mind oriented’ individuals, whose thoughts never stop tick-tocking over. Because of their high focus on intellectual exploration, many inventors, eccentrics and highly original trailblazers are born under this sign. Their intense ability to live on many mental levels, holds both pain and pleasure for Aquarians. For example, in the American Hall of Fame there are more Aquarians than any other sign, yet statistics reveal that in mental institutions there are more Aquarians than any other sign too. Many extremes can surround this sign and these extremes can take them to both heaven and hell…………………..

But in everyday terms, most Aquarians are extremely humanitarian and often involved in social programs that assist others. They can also be objective in judgement, for they never let their emotions get in the way. Outgoing and amiable, Aquarians attract friends wherever they go and those whom Aquarians befriend have their unswerving loyalty.

Aquarians are the zodiac’s most mysterious and unusual people – and no two are anything alike. Those born under this sign – ruled by innovative and non-conformist Uranus – march to the beat of their own drum. They see life in a different way. Others quite frequently think their habits and ideas are eccentric or crazy in some way, but it is this uniqueness that makes them so special. The Aquarian mind is extremely quick and they never seem to stop thinking (it is interesting to note that many born under this sign suffer from insomnia.)

Aquarians usually have strong political, environmental or social beliefs. But whether it is a relationship, career or cause – Aquarians are happiest when they have “something” to believe in and nurture.



Ok lets confess…….yes this is an aquarian!!!!!

































































something to think about……..

Be inspired by this incredible history…

Once upon a time there lived king who had a nice elephant. The attendant of the elephant used to take it to the river every day for a bath. One day as the attendant was bringing the elephant back to the palace, a little boy came walking up to the elephant. He took its trunk in his hands, saying, “Stop! Look at the way you are walking. The elephant stopped. “Walk gently, carefully,” he told the elephant. He let go of the trunk, and the elephant started walking again. The next day as the elephant passed the same spot, the boy came running and stopped the elephant to reprimand it again. This happened several days in a row.
The attendant couldn’t believe what was happening. He told the king, who sent his minister to check on the boy. In a few days, the minister came to report to the king. “Sir, I observed the boy. He lives with his grandmother. He’s just a playful little boy. He seems ordinary, but he has absolutely no fear. That’s why he can stop your elephant.
I can’t believe it,” said the king. “What do you mean?”

Sir, a mind without fear and worry can do anything.”

The king wanted the minister to prove his point. The only way to do so was to make the boy worry about something. The minister approached the boy’s grandmother. After hearing from her that the boy was allowed to do anything he wanted, the minister asked, “Has he ever asked for anything and been refused?”
Nho. I have given him everything that he wanted. He is just a happy-go-lucky boy.”
Is he afraid of anything?”

Nothing at all.”

The minister had to prove his theory to the king, so he said, “All right. When he comes home today give him the usual food, but add less than the usual amount of salt. If the boy asks about it, tell him that you don’t have enough money to buy salt, so you had to be sparing with what you have left.”
The grandmother said, “If the king wants me to do that, I shall do it.” That evening when the boy came home, she serve his supper right away. After a few bites, the boy said, “Grandma, what is this? It’s not tasty today.” The grandmother repeated what the minister had told her, and the boy said, “Okay, Grandmother, I will get you some salt.” He ran to the shop and asked the shopkeeper to give him a little salt. The shopkeeper explained that he couldn’t give him salt without receiving money in exchange. “Where can I get some money?” the boy asked.

You have to go and work for it.”

I don’t know how to work.”

Then you can’t get any salt.”

The boy was a little depressed. He went home. “Grandma, I don’t know what to do. He wants me to go and work and get money so I can get some salt. I don’t know how to work.”
All right, sweetheart,” said the grandmother, “it doesn’t matter. Go to sleep. We’ll talk about it tomorrow.”
The boy went to bed, but he couldn’t sleep all night. In the morning, the elephant came as usual, and as usual, the boy went to stop the elephant, but he couldn’t do it. The elephant pushed him aside and walked off. All the young fellow had in mind was, “I couldn’t get a little salt for my food.” That one small worry had taken away all his strength.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
