From Dec 2001*
Sextiles represent moments of opportunity and insight, moments when the energy of both the planets can be put to beneficial use, stimulated by the assets and qualities of one another.
Both of these are buoyant, cerebral, energetic, companionable signs. Wherever this sextile at approximately 22º Sagittarius and 22º Aquarius falls in your particular chart ... your participation in relationships and your involvement with money receive a special lift and zest from the originality and inspiration of Uranus ... at home in its own sign.
Sextiles allow you to make wonderful use of your communications skills and your social network. With Venus doing its sweet romantic waltz with Uranus for the next week, you can count on saying the right thing at the right time to be memorable ... even poetic ... in your seasonal sentiment. You may know just the right gesture to make, just the right gift to buy, and just the special "setting" in which to make your presentation.
More abstractly, this is a special time of philosophical agreement and greater insights into life's mystery and meaning. You may learn a thing or two about your associates ... the sudden revelation of "what makes them tick." You will see the ways in which you and they support mutual goals and enhance each other's lives.
Now, instead, of worrying about being hemmed in and inconvenienced by their demands, you're more apt to see the idiosyncrasies of your friends and partners as charming, unique, even delightful ... the kind of quirks you can be philosophical about and make allowances for. As I said, this is a much better energy for passing Christmas with a smile.

That's the short definition of what she symbolizes, and the minute people hear that, their ears perk up and they want to know more, more, more. Her Greek counterpart was Aphrodite, but that's not the "more" people want to hear. Like all short-and-simple answers to complex questions though, this one is misleading and woefully incomplete.
