Despite its name, Aquarius is not a water sign, but rather an air sign. If you are an Aquarius, you are a water-bearer, reflective and restorative, but with a stubborn streak. Once an idea gets into your head, it isn’t going anywhere. And if someone does in fact manage to change your mind, it is often through an appeal to community service. Aquarians want to make the world a better place, whether that means raising your children in a world without violence, or returning to violence in the name of social justice.
William Munny, the destitute Kansas hog farmer in Eastwood’s 1992 Western farewell “Unforgiven,” was once a vicious gunslinger. He put his guns away once to become a husband and father, but now picks them up again, along with his old friend (Morgan Freeman), to apprehend a group of cowhands who disfigured a sex worker in the frontier town of Big Whiskey. The promise of a bounty lures William back into the life, but he’s also moved by the plight of the injured woman and her fellow prostitutes, who have put up the bounty money themselves to buy the justice that the law (represented by Gene Hackman’s dictatorial sheriff Little Bill) won’t provide. Blood and death await William in Big Whiskey, but also the chance to make a difference in the world, no matter how small.
