I saw an Aquarius-related post and saw the stereotype that said it is hard to communicate with Aquarians.
How do you message people (e.g., short or long messages) and what are the time durations for you to message back? What are your general feelings towards getting a message from someone you like a lot (whatever type of relationship), someone you like, and strangers?

I have mercury in aquarius. I usually message back when I see it, unless I’m super busy, but, I’ll never leave any message unanswered. Typically my messages are short to medium, I’m not super wordy. I’m witty.

I use primarily stickers, gifs and memes with people I am close with.
lilas333GuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
I have an Aquarius moon in my first house, my texts usually involve emojis, gifs, and exclamation marks haha. Sometimes it’s easier to communicate using images because I can’t always find the right words quick enough (my mercury is in Virgo in the 8th house)

I have an Aquarius stellium in the 11th. I am not the best texter. I message back whenever I feel like it, which can take days. I straight up ignore messages sometimes. The length varies from topic to topic, I don’t think much about it. I generally am fond of texting though, calls are a nightmare. Getting messages from people is intriguing, even more so when it’s someone you like, somewhat sweet as well.

Aqua stellium here. I’m kinda bad at texting because I’m a lazy typer. If you wanna have a full-blown convo with me, I can’t do it thru text. I don’t like calling either but if it’s important, like something happened and you need company even just through call/vc, or you need to rant/vent/cry, then I’m gonna make an exception and call you. If i’m texting with someone about something important, I reply right away till the conversation is over. But if it’s just a mindless convo and does not interest me enough, it takes me longer to reply because I usually run out of things to say very easily with shallow talks. I have to think harder about what to reply if I wanna get the conversation going, or just not reply at all if I don’t.
I’m better at communicating in-person with anyone. I’m very open with talking about any topic. I’m a sucker for deep conversations/debates, especially if the topic is something I’m interested in (and there’s a lot). I sometimes get carried away and be so invested when I’m talking with someone who gives equally meaningful insights about the topic. It’s hard to make me shut up once i’m invested. I get fired up from all the mental stimulation that my whole body would literally feel hot and cold simultaneously lmao.
I find it hard to communicate with shy and quiet strangers because I really suck at small talk and I tend to just stay quiet if I feel like i’m not getting the same energy back. The good thing is I’m also very comfortable with silence.
I guess the reason why people are saying that is because we tend to get bored easily if the conversation is not mentally stimulating. I personally don’t bother with shallow conversations most of the time because it tends to drain me easily more than complicated conversations. That might come off as being uninterested or not caring at all to others I guess.

Aqua Sun and Mercury
Generally, I don’t like chatting about day to day stuff or how I’m doing over text. I like to foster emotional connection and deep conversation through face to face interactions.
My favorite text conversations are more on the sending random thoughts or articles, memes, the new wine you’ve tried, etc.
But I recognize that other people need the few pings more frequently, so will make an effort to actually answer within 12-36 hours.
Sometimes I don’t answer because I have legitimately forgotten due to being busy. Actually this happens a lot… or that I thought I had answered, or that I had started typing a message and then just didn’t hit send.
Even if I really like you and think about you quite often, doesn’t necessarily mean I will text you… you can only really tell if I actually go out of my way to make plans with you.

I have an Aquarius stellium in the 9th. I’m a flight attendant, so there’s that lol
I also really love learning and school. I love philosophy and while I don’t have a stellium in the 3rd house of communication, I have north node, the sun, and mercury. It’s in leo.
I communicate directly to people but when it comes to my feelings, I am not very good at talking about it. Once my boundaries are crossed I’m suddenly very direct.
Subpar_Actuator86GuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
I talk veeery fast, it’s like a stream of consciousness, I will jump from subject to subject sometimes without even properly ending the previous thought. sometimes I forget about the other person and have to stop abruptly to let them have a turn. my texting is also very fast, I do a lot of short texts but there’s a lot of them and if I’m not doing anything I message back right away. I get bored very easily though if people aren’t as active or quick as I am at communicating and I’ll move on from them if it’s a common occurrence. I also communicate almost exclusively in memes and gifs ????
throwinawayfordays-GuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
I have Aquarius Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter as part of a 10h stellium (which also includes a Pisces sun at 0 degrees).
I would say that talking to me might be akin to having the weirdest job interview ever. I get self conscious when communicating so it’s usually easier for me to focus on the other person.
Generally, I tend to communicate in a very sporadic way. Sometimes I have a hard time translating my internal experience to others which makes me not want to respond to messages. I can get lost halfway through a sentence, and jump from topic to topic.
My response time is anywhere from like 5 hrs to 20 days to be honest. ????
I prefer talking on the phone to texting because it forces me to be more grounded and present for the entirety of the conversation.

Aqua stellium in the 12th (sun, mercury, venus, Neptune)
It really depends. I get bored of some conversations really easily and will leave them unopened for weeks, but if the conversation with someone is good, I’ll open messages immediately and try and keep the conversation going for as long as I can.
Sometimes I will legit just *forget* to reply and then hit people back like a month later like “haha hey forgot to reply lmao” and just pick things up again.
usually I keep messages long, but I really don’t like to be the one to leave someone on seen after ending the convo so I’ll try and get the last word in so the person I’m messaging feels like tey have to reopen the conversation when they’re ready.
killindiceGuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
Not an Aquarius but I have my Mercury and a stellium in the 11th and my third house in Aqua. I get along really well with Aquarians in conversation and find communication to be really effortless when intellectually exploring ideas without needing a conclusion. I also tend to think really big in terms of making connections. My Scorpio Mercury wants to get to the bottom of single issues to apply them to the big picture. My stellium in Scorpio and the 11th definitely make the outside-looking-in observer of the group that Aquarians are known for feel right at home.
kiersten25GuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
I’m an Aquarius sun, moon, Mercury, Uranus and Neptune, and it really depends. Sometimes I just won’t be in the mood to reply cause I’m occupied with something else or I just don’t feel up to having a full on texting conversation with them at the moment. The time duration for me to message back are from right away to like 6 hours, but that depends on if I remember to text them back and how important it is for me to respond to them. I usually message short messages, with my friends at least, it feels a lot more casual that way I guess lol. And I like being messaged by my close friends or else I wouldn’t be close to them, just because it can take me a while to respond doesn’t mean I get irritated from my friends messaging me. And as for strangers I really just don’t care and strangers wouldn’t have my number in the first place like what
stellar_aquarianGuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
Well I have both an Aquarius stellium and Mercury in Aquarius lol. I think my messages tend to be on the longer side. I usually reply right away, or as soon as I see the message, but if it’s not an important convo or I don’t *need* to respond, it might take me a few hours or longer to reply. Oh and I like to use emojis in my texts.
If I get a message from someone I like a lot/like, I’m happy to hear from them, and I try to keep the convo going. If I get a message from a stranger I just try to be cordial, but I’m not gonna be that interested in talking to them.
GennieLightdustGuestFebruary 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm
Aqua Stellium in my 5th and 6th houses of Cap and Aqua respectively.
Always short, sweet and to the point. I run from small talk, and have recently embraced Emojis and Memes as valid expressions of 1000 word paragraphs.
