Money and Wealth

Money is directly proportional to their efforts but Aquarius ascendants do get lucky in wealth. When wealth arrives, so do disputes. They might face litigations with respect to inheritances from their family members and relatives. This is not a hard and fast rule. Of course, it depends on the individual chart. But they do gain a lot of money and wealth eventually.

They can also get drenched in debt. They do not stop to show off the money they have even if it is borrowed money. There would be a time in their life when they will be deep in debt and then suddenly all the debts will be cleared with an inflow of large amounts of money. They are very calculative and smart about their joint assets.


These individuals may enjoy good health in the early days of their life but as they cross thirty, their health undergoes frequent fluctuations. They need to be careful about their health. According to Vedic astrology, the body parts concerned with this sign are calves, ankles and circulatory system. They can face heart related issues, arthritis, blood clots, diabetes, general weakness, hypertension, fractures or injuries and nerve damage.

They also can get carried away by fluctuating daily routines which cause irregular sleep patterns. It is seen that during their teens or nearing twenties, being quite adventurous, they try a lot of substances which are detrimental to health in the long run. Although they do this just for fun, there are chances that they can get addicted to these substances. This causes a lot of health problems in their life.

What do Aquarius Ascendants Need to be Careful of?

  • Unpredictability begets troubles, not for you maybe but for others. The social structure is interdependent and interlinked. Being a bit mindful about how your unpredictable decisions can adversely affect others will be helpful.
  • There is a difference between stubbornness and independence. You have a tendency to be fixed on your ideas and self beliefs. Adhering to any fixed idea is not independence, be it yours or others.
  • You will have to be careful about borrowed money. It might land you into big financial troubles.
  • Extreme competitive behavior is not suitable for anyone, so for you. Same goes with jealousy. These are obstacles in the blossoming of your inner being.
  • You might have a general approach towards everyone but family and loved ones do seek exclusiveness at least in the realm of emotions. You might sometimes be too cold towards their feelings.
  • Understand that every being is different and everyone has their own shortcomings. Being kind towards their emotions won’t cost you anything.

Being an Aquarius ascendant can make your whole personality and approach towards life in accordance with this sign despite different moon or sun signs. To have a better understanding of your overall traits, consider consulting an astrologer.
