Of all the zodiac signs, Aquarians are the most likely to marry later in life and be single for longer periods of time. At least this is what you read in a lot of the astrology books. And just from my own personal observations, I've found it to be true that Aquarians tend to marry later than most other signs.
This is usually attributed to the ruler of Aquarius, Uranus. Uranus is freedom-loving, and can often be erratic and even eccentric. Aquarians are less afraid of snubbing convention and more at home with their independence than the typcial person would be.
Aquarius is heavily emphasized in my chart and I didn't marry until I was 38. Not only is Uranus the ruler of all my planets placed in Aquarius, but it also squares my weak Scorpio moon. I suffered a lot in thinking I would never find my mate and always be single. I was not often at a loss for boyfriends, but the 'fated husband' was a long-time in coming. I'm so very thankful I waited in retrospect, and only wish I could have enjoyed my single years more, and that I had had the relaxed faith that I would eventually find my life partner.
Someone recently pointed me to a neat website. The title is "I can't believe I'm still single". The author is a successful New York movie maker who turned 44 this year. And guess what sign he is?
This guy is extremely Aquarian. He has a stellium in Aquarius including Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. His Sun/Saturn/Venus are locked together within one degree. And though we don't know what time he was born, it's quite likely that his very powerful Uranus (conjunct Regulus), the ruler of all these planets is also not so gently suffocating his Moon in late Leo. He was born January 22, 1962. He probably knows nothing about astrology, but he might want sit up and take notice; maybe even read some stuff on Moon/Uranus conjunctions and Aquarians in general.
In any case, his new site is a representative case study of the single Aquarian ;-).

Here's a long overdue update for people who've joined the 1962 Aquarius survey list.
We're up to about sixty people now. We still have a long way to go to get to two hundred. Since I put out the initial call almost two years ago, I'm sure some people may have already lost interest in participating. Also, a few people gave me secondary email addresses that may no longer be active.
So, I expect of the sixty we may only see 2/3 actually participating once we're ready to go.
It may be another year before we've got enough people to get this survey off and going! So hold tight and check in every once in a while.
Here's two emails I received from a 1962 Aquarian that I'm sure you will find very interesting.
I just found your blog via starlightnews and was happy to see your interest in aqua62s. I do recall reading your article in '96. I'd like to take part in your survey and will try to round up any others I happen to meet. Maybe by 2012 we'll make it to 200. Have you posted announcements on other astrology blogs/forums?
I was born on 1/22 and both of the sign's rulers are super strong in my chart. I have an exact to the minute conjunction of sun /saturn, and moon and uranus are conjunct on the asc.
I started reading astrology books when I was 12 or 13 and by age 14 I had hand calculated my birthchart (those were the days eh?). I have been studying astrology ever since but have never tried to get credentials and make a living of it.
I have always wanted to meet my astro twin as it would be the ultimate proof of astrology's validity for me personally. Despite all these years of experience with it, I still sometimes have my doubts and wonder if it's all in my head. Well, last summer I had the opportunity to meet an almost astro-twin. He contacted me via online personals and we found out we were born 7.5 hrs apart in the same zone. We only met for 2 hours but it felt like talking with a friend you hadn't seen in years. And we were remarkably similar (in spite of the 7 hours and different gender) in looks, interests, philosophy and psychology. It was a weird experience.
Now that I've found this site maybe I can find a more exact astro twin. I noticed one post from a woman born 1/22.
I have an idea for that survey: one would think there would be an obvious difference in dominant character trait /life path between the early aquastells who have the sun/ven/saturn conjunction versus the later ones with sun/ven/jup.
Also, the early ones would have merc/jup vs merc/sat; and then there's the less glaring difference of venus/sat vs mars/sat.
Of course all those shifting planets get more complicated than that but Jupter and Saturn are very basic opposite energies and might be the clearest to document.
It's really cool how the earlies have the inward or contractive basic character (sun) with an expansive mind while the laters are the opposite or complement.
Anyway, the survey could be set up to have a look at that if there was a large enough group. What do you think? Maybe you were already considering that anyway. On the other hand it might not be a good idea to stir up divisiveness among the aquastells for we are all One. Solidarity forever!
These are very interesting points! What do you guys think?
P.S. If you haven't already done so, please introduce yourself at the meeting spot.

The astrology consultation focuses on various aspects of your life and personality as chosen by you and could include examining your key personal traits, creative abilities, relationships, career, health, childhood and spiritual issues. To prepare for a reading I study your birth (natal) chart and your upcoming transits and progressions. For relationship questions I also need birth data for your friend or partner.
As of September 2013 the consultation fee is $120 for the initial one hour meeting and $70 for any future one hour visits. If you live in Vancouver and would like to schedule a reading you can call me at 604*684*1826.
