The personal lives of Aquarians are typically synonymous with their public lives, as their energies and thoughts are focused outward. They will have many, many friends thoughout their lives, though they seldom form very close long-term friendships. To the Aquarius, everyone is a friend unless they prove themselves otherwise (see friends) . True to the water bearer they symbolize (a man pouring water out of an urn to provide for humanity), they feel a sense of responsibility for social causes. Rosa Parks, the African-American woman famous for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white man, is a classic example of the Aquarian willingness to take a personal risk in order to make a difference. The late Massachusetts Senator Paul Tsongas was ridiculed for promoting nuclear power in order to avoid dependency on oil from the Persian Gulf- over a full decade before war errupted over that very issue in that very place: case in point for the Aquarian being too far ahead of his time to gain acceptance. Author Judy Blume risked the wrath of conservative parents and educators in order to address the issues that affect teenage girls. Actress & commedian Ellen DeGeneres risked her career to come out as a lesbian on prime-time television. What does all this have to do with the personal lives of Aquarians? Very little, and that's the point. To the humanitarian Aquarian, building a better society is far more important than building their own relationships; it is vital to them that family, friends and romantic partners learn to respect this quality.
