Aquarius, Gemini, Libra…Freedom Loving

Not everyone communicates in the same manner. Some people are more social and interactive with others despite their true desire to not be around others. Getting to know an air sign can often be fun, confusing and interesting. Despite their ability to be charming, the air signs often be demanding and sometimes impersonal. Remaining calm when they go on and on is often a good approach to take with the air group of Aquarius, Gemini and Libra.

Regardless of the personality characteristics a person is born with, a person’s style of communicating is often much different. Many times, people can feel how they are expressing themselves, but don’t comprehend why they communicate as they do. Further, those who communicate with an air sign should realize that they often wear many faces and display several sides of their personality depending on the situation and whether they are frustrated when expressing themselves. A look at the natal chart of an air sign will give deeper insight into this interesting facet.

So, what is the secret to communicating with another person if you aren’t aware of that person’s sun sign, moon sign and rising sign?

Each zodiac sign provides clues about how a person acts and reacts. The more you observe others, the more you begin to understand and recognize the types of traits that are in an individual’s chart. This in turn provides you with valuable information to get along better with those whom you come across in your journey.

There are three air signs, Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. All have similar traits, however, the way in which each interacts has an influence on how they respond, as well as their ability to engage others irrespective of the type of relationship they are in. The following examines communication techniques that Aquarius, Gemini and Libra have which exist on the day each were born.

AQUARIUS

Aquarius is often thought of as the genius of the zodiac. Many of them have photographic memories, put way too much pressure on themselves as a result of the expectations of others. They are often independent learners and are self-taught. They have an appreciation for languages, religions, history and music.

Those born under this sign are not good at expressing emotion. It’s not that they are cold, but they sometimes don’t know how to respond. As such, they either block out what they perceive as a stressful or emotion filled event or will pass the event onto someone whom they feel can better handle the circumstances. Aquarius is not big on change. Interestingly though, this air sign does like to explore new things, just not stressful ones.

Aquarius can be social and knows how to interact with all walks of life. However, they like their alone time too. Further, they often communicate best on a personal level with those who do not travel in their same educational circles, as well as those who have unique quirks about them. They often feel they can be more themselves with those who don’t expect them to always be intelligent. Further, Aquarius often feels like an outcast because of his/her intelligence.

This air sign is attracted to those with quick wit and often wants others to take initiative in finding the answers themselves. If you are trying hard but still need an Aquarius’ help, you will be delighted to know that they are willing to help, just not willing to do all your work for you.  It’s tough to pin this air sign down, so catching whomever on the spot is a good bet for being able to converse with them. After all, Aquarius is air and blows through at his/her own pace irrespective of yours.

  • Interesting, witty, intelligent, attentive, spontaneous, accepting, fun and imaginative.
  • Detached, egotistical, unreliable, demanding, impulsive, insecure

How to communicate with an Aquarius – Aquarians are some of the easiest people to speak with as they are very accepting of others. Since this sign is ruled by Uranus, the planet of enormous changes and genius mind set, these folks are race car fast with their communications especially if it involves things that they can foresee happening in the future.

Some of their decisions do not make sense to the rest of the world. Also, those born under this air sign can often be unemotional when it comes to other’s plights, however, expect their misfortunes to take center stage and be tended to on the spot.
