A Historical and Present Day Reference Guide

Includes year 2017 astrological, astronomy, and other relevant calendar events.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus.

This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Aquarius by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modification by others.

This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances, it is worth the read.

Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.

There is a short metaphysics experiment near the end.

This sign is fixed, airy, masculine, warm and humane. People born under this sign are ruled by Uranus (the occult planet). The Sun enters Aquarius on January 21st and passes into the sign of Pisces February 18th.

Aquarius people do best in the suburbs, i.e.: outside a city (preferably high ground), but still able to mingle with lots of people during the day.

Age of Aquarius Historical Note

This is the Age of Aquarius and it will remain so for the next two millennium.

The final (Editor’s note: circa 1901) paragraph in the manuscript below addresses this phenomenon in interesting detail.

I never knew you write astrological hubs. This one is fantastic, and so true for lots of specificities of the Aquarius sign. As an Aquarius myself, I'm not just ruled by Uranus (the planet) but I'm also fascinated by this planet so far from our Earth.
