The Aquarius Child
Astrology & the Child
Astrology is a very practical tool in raising children. It provides information that eliminates judgment and criticism of a child (and parent) and can inspire communication between the generations. The knowledge of astrology enables us to enhance a child’s potential and to understand their specific behaviors. We can allow them to be who they are and not what we, society, or schools expect them to be.
The Aquarian Child
The Aquarian Child Independent thinkers, ahead of their time, visionary and often eccentric as they grow older, Aquarian children can be somewhat different than other children. They love the wind, storms, lightning, and anything that flies.
They are intrigued with things very old (Saturn rulership) and things very new (Uranus rulership). A broken bicycle part is as interesting as a space ship. They have the ability to create something new out of bits and pieces of something very old. The Aquarian child is a free spirit exploring the world by their own methods.
Often comfortable only in their own reality, they can be perceived as solitary, shy and introspective. Childhood may not be easy for them if they are not understood, and Aquarians are usually misunderstood. Emotions are kept deep within and encouragement is needed to express feelings and ask for help.
Exploring the intellect fascinates them and places them on the edge of linear time. Therefore they are always ahead of their peers. They can be strongly opinionated and impatient if controlled too much.
Take them to science and history museums, give them a camera, teach them about architecture, geometry and astrology. Books and stories about Tesla, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Madame Curie, Einstein, Frank Lloyd Wright, etc. will help the Aquarian child create astrologically appropriate mental models for their future.
