Idealist and Perfectionism make this sign accustom to holding on to a specific ideal. They tend to fixate on things because they have a clear mental picture on how they believe they should be. If a person does not fit the picture, then it is the person who is scrapped not the idealistic picture.

Emotions: They are traditionally viewed as dispassionate and detached. In actuality the Aquarius has chaotic and conflicting emotions, and emotional needs. Routine and stability are craved, yet they can feel stifled in relationships. When their perfectionist streak comes into play, it inevitably finds the mess of emotions waiting for them. They have an enormous problem with intimacy, preferring to remain aloof.
