I feel like B sides are always better, no matter whose record it is.
I think being different, going against the grain of society is the greatest thing in the world.
The 1960s were about releasing ourselves from conventional society and freeing ourselves.
I dyed my hair blonde in that movie, so my head doesn’t match my grill.
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

Add your own!
A quote from “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll, born 27 January – (me too). You don’t get much more Aquarian than –
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe. 🙂
I like your mothers quote..my mum used to say ‘only the boring are bored’ (aqua moon).
Z, your comment reminds me of a song by Harvey Danger that was popular-ish in the late 90s called “Flagpole Sitta”:
I’m hearing voices in my head
I swear to God it sounds like they’re snoring
But if you’re bored then you’re boring
The agony and the irony
They’re killing me!
“I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.”
Hahaha I love her! 🙂
“If they tell you it makes your ass look good, you’re buying it. ‘Ma’am, that blouse makes your ass look fabulous.’ “
Love your mom’s!
My family is very Uranian but only 1 of us is an Aquarius.
Rides on the floor waxer when our restaurant was closed? Weee thanks Dad! (real safe LOL)
One of our (many “not all there”) regular customers used to carry around a cattle prod and that was OK for a long time until my mom finally told my dad to tell the guy to quit it or he can’t come in and drink his coffee there any more.
Cattle Prod Dan* also used to play “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby over and over again on the jukebox all year long until we finally couldn’t take it anymore and would unplug it.
*Name changed to protect the guilty.
I am surrounded by Aquarians – even married one! I I am sooooo boring because I love stability and home and only sometimes reckless abandon- I don’t need to be stimulated constantly – in fact I prefer NOT to socialise too much –
Although the attraction is with the opposite – He makes me come out of myself every now and again –
I wonder what he sees in me……:)
“I wonder what he sees in me”
Probably security and conventionality. Gives Aquarians something to rebel against!
“If everybody was going right I went left. Everybody was talkin’ about blue, I’ma talk about black. So I never wanted to follow the trends that everybody did.”
“Mom, I’m not a princess. I’m a Girl King!” – My daughter, age 3.
“It’s good to be queen.” – someone famous, but co-opted by my mother.
Those last two sound more like Leo quotes, methinx…
Alright, here’s another one from my mother who fancies herself a queen:
“Go on ahead without me. I’ll catch up later.”
hans, for me, the aquarian part of my daughter’s quote is not the ‘queen’ aspect of it, but the rebellious nature of a girl king. not a queen, not a princess, but a girl king. it’s transgressive. especially for a then 3 year old. now she’s 4 and as aquarian as ever! (am on mobile. pls xcuse typos.)
“Attention, patriarchy, capitalism, industrialism, monotheism, and all you other gynocidal, genocidal, ecocidal, psychecidal -isms: You will be overthrown and overgrown, ground down, composted, and digested.”
“I’m the lime green sheep in the family” as said by me.
my friend has also said in reference to me “she does not think linearly, it’s more of a zigzag”
I feel like Aquarians are the MOST loved sign… they do their own thing and don’t force their ideals onto people.
LOL z…I am an aquarian, and my father (a mercury-uranus square Aries Sun) always use to tell me; “Only boring people get bored”…I just told my bf this today actually, and here it is again, what a great sync..
alicia- Aquarius (fixed air) governs -isms, you know.
One time my boss’s Aquarius girlfriend was chatting with me about some of our regular customers and she suddenly said “Don’t you just love people!?”
All the scorpions in my head thought “no, not really.” but I didn’t feel like expanding on that theme so I just said “sure.”
She kept going “I mean everyone is so different, I just love it.”
Again, I just said “sure.”
beth–perhaps that aquarian was just revolting against his own -isms. haha
Yeah! That sounds right 🙂
I think I’m finally getting to understand Aquarius.
“Being different is the most important thing!”
~an Aquarian friend of mine
I love shocking and surprising people! I relate a lot to pisces due to the amount of neptune and pisces in my chart but the aquarius sun and mercury in me LOVES to shock!!
WhosThatLady, I like what you said about them not forcing their ideals. I am not aquarius but must have something of their nature — I have a stellium in the 11th house and UNaspected Uranus…….
Hey Moonpluto, i’ve also got unaspeced Uranus, and i am an Aquarius (Sun). I don’t know if this makes me behave more like an Aquarian or less.
“born of a sign that carries vessels
but in a month that’s cold as ice
I know I question things too quickly
but I have never questioned if I’ve loved”
“Mom, when I grow up I want to have an outer-space zoo!!!! And I’ll be an astronaut and a zookeeper!!!!!!!” — my daughter, age 4
And a conversation between us:
“Mom, why is it raining again?”
I said, “I guess God thought the world needed to be washed some more.”
She paused for a moment and then asked, “Mom, why does God get to decide what the world needs?”
She’s a very philosophical little thing. I could give many more examples. Every day I’m inundated with her Aquarius tendency toward spiritual questioning, deep thoughts, and also shockingly rebellious ideas! She is absolutely awesome! 😀
“For me, the safest place is out on a limb”.
“I don’t need anyone to rectify my existence; the most profound relationship we will ever have is the one with ourselves.”
Shannon, I remember your tattoo, “chacun a son goute!” And of course, my mom says that all the time. She was talking to my aunt yesterday, who is a Cancerian and fond of pushing her ideas onto others if she knows best out of compassion, she was trying to gently convince her to not push herself on her son. And she said at the end, there’s nothing I can do, she’s going to go her own way. She also talks about there being a million points of view and I hate that.
Dina, I say it a lot too 🙂 I threatened to get inked for a few years before I actually did so.
Me? I’ve got Aquarius on my midheaven (trine Uranus even), and the tattoo is on the inside of my right wrist, facing out. Make of that what you will
You know, I actually think Capricorn and Aquarius have a lot in common. Capricorn is very live and let live too, because they have boundaries, let me control myself and climb my mountain and you go ahead and do what you want. Except they’re a little more like, you can be you at home, but when you’re in the office you act professional.
Observe the point of view of a Scorpio on the “everyone is different situation.” Strong Bad=Scorpio in my opinion, (I associate red, black, and green with Scorpio too, I wonder if Jamaica is a Scorpio…):
“Everyone is different, no two people are not on fire.”
The “Empress” is what I call myself! 😉
“Democracy is parlamental dictatorship.”
“No I’d rather go and journey
Where the diamond crescent’s glowing
And run across the valley
Beneath the sacred mountain
And wander through the forest
Where the trees have leaves of prisms
That break the sight up into colors
That no one know the names of
And when it’s time I’ll go and lay
Beside the legendary fountain
Till I see her form reflected
In its clear and gentle waters
And if you think I’m ready
You may lead me to the chasm
Where the rivers of our visions
Flow into one another
And I’ll stay awhile and wonder
At the mist that they created
And lose myself within it
Cleanse my mind and body
And I know at this moment
As I stand in that cathedral
I will want to dive
Beneath the white cascading water
She may beg and she may plead
And she may argue with her logic
Mention all the things I’ll lose
That really have no value
Though I doubt that she will ever
Come to understand my meaning
In the end she’ll surely know
I was not born to follow”

the list of aquarians is disappointing without the legendary & powerful Oprah to parade the list. lol
