My favorite Aquarians

by admin. Average Reading Time: about 2 minutes.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Here are some of my favorites:

Music

Mozart – 27/1/1756

Elly Ameling – 8/2/1933 – Opera singer whose vibrato has a quality that reminds me of electric waves (the symbol of Aquairus).  Here singing Mozart http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ef5SoxyX8cQ

Bob Marley – 6/2/1945

Carlos Paredes – 16/2/1925 – Portuguese classic guitar  player . Here “Movimento Perpetuo”

Abraham Lincoln – 12/2/1809

Betty Friedan – 4/2/1921 – perfect Aquarian, died on her 84th birthday (Uranus return), wrote the “Feminine Mystique” at 42 (half a Uranus orbit), a force in women’s emancipation.

 

In show business

Eddie Izzard – 7/2/ 1962 –Actor and stand up comedian with an surreal sense of humour.  Has 6 planets and South Node in Aquarius and defines himself as  “executive, action transvestite”  and not a “drag queen or weirdo like J. Edgar Hoover and Hermann Göring”.  Politically and socially active, in July of 2009 ran 43 marathons in 51 days (took a Sunday rest) fundraising for Sport Relief.

John Belushi – 24/1/1949 immortal in “Blues Brothers”

Juliette Greco – 7 /2/1927  French singer  here interpreting   Je suis comme je suis / Je plais à qui je plais

lyrics by Jacques Prévert – 4 /2/1900  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dvzcdnFOo4

 

In a category of their own

Sebastião Salgado – 8/2/1944 Brasilian photographer known for social and environment images

Lola Montez – 17/2/1821 – born in Ireland under the name of Eliza Gilbert, famous dancer and mistress of Louis I of Bavaria, used her influence to promote liberal reforms.

 

Last but not least

My husband  – 14/2/1954 – who keeps me informed and entertained with outlandish subjects even in the middle of the night and even after 25+ years of marriage.

But not everything is golden in Aquarian wonderland.  It is an air sign very much at ease in the world of ideas but it is FIXED.  Please don’t waste your time persuading an Aquarian, they DO NOT CHANGE THEIR MINDS.  Change the world… right away, changing themselves … no way.

    et ton amie poisson préférée, of course
    de retour à Paris après des vacances
    en juillet Liepzig, août à Cabourg et à Theize.
    Je te sais enfin chez toi au Portugal après toutes ces années qui t’ont enrichies…
    Je pense bien à toi, avec toute ma tendresse
