Corazon Aquino

The birthday girl for January 25 is Corazon Aquino.

As the leader of the People’s Power Revolution in the Philippines, Aquino demonstrated what is probably the most virtuous quality of her sun sign: the ability to bring people together.  This sort of behavior comes naturally to Aquarius natives. They thrive on group dynamics and are generally at their best when functioning as part of a “greater good.”  In 1986, she was named “Time” magazine’s “Woman of the Year” and she is widely regarded as an icon of democracy.

Aquino even dressed for the “greater good,” adopting the color yellow as her signature color to acknowledge the revolution that brought her to power, according to this passage from answers.com:

In August 1983 when Cory Aquino’s husband, Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, was returning home from the United States to the Philippines, yellow ribbons were tied by the allies of Ninoy in Metro Manila as a sign that they still believed in him as their leader to oppose then President Ferdinand Marcos.  This sign was taken from the song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree” where the guy requested the girl to tie a yellow ribbon in the oak tree to indicate that he was still welcome or loved by the girl.

I can’t think of another world leader who had a signature color except for a few dictators.  It fascinates me mostly because I don’t believe that most people would allow someone else to pick their signature color for them.  An Aquarian, on the other hand . . .
