Aquarius has a weird way of knowing when someone is taking advantage of them.
They’ll feel it strongly. They don’t mind helping you when you need them but they won’t sit around and be anybody’s doormat.
Sometimes, when people are trying to move from being a doormat to being assertive, they feel like they have to hold aggressive positions instead.
This method isn’t any better, though. Instead, think of yourself as being on a team with the people involved in your situation. You could even say, “Can we pool our resources to solve this problem?”
