Part of my child astrology series.
Probably most parents like to think of their little baby as unique or special. Well, the Aquarius child actually is. Unless she has many earthy planets in her chart, this little one will have you puzzling almost every day! Either you'll think she's a genius or gifted, or well, that special kind of 'special'.
I think of Aquarians as children of the rainbow. Real and yet intangible. Colourful, free-spirited, bright, yet distant. They are the future mad scientists, inventors, or leaders of revolutionary organisations - if they are allowed to fully express themselves.
If you are a physically affectionate sort, you might feel some disappointment at your water-bearer's cold ways. She has a certain aloofness that might make you worry. But don't ever forget that this little one has the heart and mind of a humanitarian. I like to think of it like this. It is those that can care yet keep some emotional distance that become our nurses, doctors, and all those who must tend to humanity's troubles without being overwhelmed by them.
This little one is therefore a loner, so don't push other babies or adults in her face. She isn't interested. It isn't that she isn't social, in fact, she might come across as just that, only to then distance herself from other children! It's just that she is more interested in other things. Such as discovering how things work, and generally using her brain matter. And as for people, she is interested in what she can learn from them, rather than pure socialisation for it's own sake.
She will require a lot of mental stimulation. Reading and talking to this little one will be satisfying. You have her full attention now! And give her plenty of objects to examine. Her curious nature will not be satisfied with blocks. Always remember to give her some alone time, with the reassurance of you nearby.
The most important thing with an Aquarian babe, is that she is bright and she is unpredictable. Expect the unexpected was never such an apt saying as for this baby. A rebellious streak will set in very early indeed. The less authoritarian your approach, the better the relationship between you.
