Despite the start of the name Aquarius seeming water-like, they’re actually an air sign (and can be a little up in the clouds as a result).
They’re led by strong values of fairness and equality, so if you know a vegetarian, they’re probably an Aquarius.
Let’s take a look into the mind of Aquarians.
We do always note, though, that your sun sign is not a full picture, so pop birth times and places into a natal chart to find out where the stars were and find out more about a certain person’s placements.
Aquarius horoscope dates
You’re an Aquarius if you’re born between January 20 and February 18.
If you’re not sure which sign you fall into, pop your birth time into a natal chart calculator, which will show you your sun sign exactly – no cusps folks.
Aquarius personality traits
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of innovation, eccentricity, and forward-thinking, Aquarius is the revolutionary of the zodiac.
They do not enjoy authority in any sense, and prefer to think freely. This spirit seeps into everything from the clothes they wear to the jobs they choose.
Aquarians can come off as distant, sometimes neglecting connection in relationships and focusing more on the bigger picture and trying to make changes to the world.
Although their conviction is definitely admirable, it’s important they try to avoid being aloof to their loved ones, and steer clear of their natural stubbornness (as a fixed sign).
Teamwork and problem-solving with others comes to an Aquarius easily, especially if there’s a common goal, but they will need their alone time to recharge and collect their many thoughts and feelings.
Once they’ve learned to trust someone and broken down that wall, they will show their vulnerability and be a valued friend or partner. However, if they don’t feel they’re getting as good as they’re giving, Aquarius may just put that wall right back up.
Highly creative, Aquarians thrive when they can be their own person and show off their talents in a way they won’t be judged or dictated to.
Nonconformist Aquarius need a partner who won’t tell them what to do, making them a good match with other Aquarians, Geminis, and Libras.
With an Aquarius, the two both understand that it takes time to build intimacy. For that reason, their relationship might appear shallow at first, with plenty of shared interests and talking points, but not much showing of emotions.
However, if both are ready to open up, they’ll have a mutual respect for each other that could make their relationship go the long haul.
Carefree Gemini can be a match for Aquarius with their shared curiosity for the world around them. Both value their independence, but fixed Aquarius will need to dial down their headstrong opinions if flighty Gemini seems scared off.
Libra also makes a fine pair with Aquarius as they’re both sociable people who love to laugh and have fun. Again, openness and honesty are key to making this a lasting relationship over a lighthearted flirtation.
