Aquarius: Who Are They? Inside the Zodiac Sign
Humanitarian, philanthropic, and keenly interested in making the world a better place or detached and unapproachable?
Maybe a little bit of everything?
Let’s find out!
In this blog, we’ll dissect who Aquarians are (in a very general horoscope kind of way) as well as talk about the compatibility with other zodiacs, Aquarius personality, and much more. Oh, and of course, we will reveal some of the most famous people who were born under the bright stars of the Aquarius sign.
And we got some good ones! ;)
Aquarius zodiac sign, Aquarius dates & more
Aquarius is born between January 20 - February 18.
The Aquarius constellation appears in the region of the night sky which is referred to as the 'Sea' and is the 10th largest constellation in the sky.
While Aquarius’s symbol is a water bearer and the name itself has the word ‘aqua’ in it, Aquarius is actually one of the air zodiac signs.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of invention, innovation, space travel, and aerodynamics, Aquarians have strong intellectual capabilities and an actual plan to get them where they want to go.
At the end of the day, every Aquarian is a rebel at heart. They despise authority and anything that represents conventionality. Thus, it’s no surprise they exude authenticity mixed with eccentricity, starting with their clothes and finishing with their approach to life.
But their inventive energy is very intentional and well calculated.
Amongst other things, Aquarians tend to be highly analytical. While it can make them appear cold and uninterested, they use their skills and knowledge to make the world a better place.
As true humanitarians, they care deeply about justice, liberty, and fairness. They want to see the good in the world prosper so they use their assertiveness to point out the shortcomings of the current world. And they’re not afraid to take creative risks to come up with new solutions.
But despite their noble pursuits and deep aspirations (or should we say, because of them), Aquarians are quite easy-going and fun to talk to. They tend not to sweat the small stuff and just look out for their strong principles. They can sometimes judge too harshly or toy with others with humor or gossip.
Aquarius passions & interests
Aquarians tend to possess a strong interest in the supernatural and SCI-FI is often their favorite genre. Binge-watching Netflix series about space travel and new worlds is effortless for them! Their love for new technology, software engineering, and flying (air sign, remember?) run deep and wide, spreading into various hobbies and even job careers.
You can also easily find Aquarius with a passion for writing. A lot is happening inside their heads, so it’s both healthy and fun letting their thoughts flow freely into a page.
They often undertake abstract ideas and concepts in their minds. However, sometimes, their taste runs a little extreme, risky, and edgy, so Aquarians will appreciate a little (and maybe even - a lot) of weirdness in art (check out abstract art, or better yet - Avante Garde) and all aspects of life.
Aquarius’ compatibility & relationships with other signs:
Gemini: conversations may come easily for Aquarius when they’re with Gemini. They’ll share interesting ideas, laughs, and that will make a beautiful intellectual relationship.
Libra: progressive ideas, thoughts on justice and freedom - they will surely find common topics to explore. But Libras are more romantic creatures, so Aquarians can often appear too harsh and blunt to them.
Aquarius: that’s a good match! Both of them will appreciate each other’s uniqueness, and what’s better than that?
Cancer: Cancers are nurturers, and Aquarius might appreciate their efforts. However, Cancer’s intense emotions may be overwhelming for Aquarius.
Pisces: Pisces will broaden Aquarius’ spiritual and philosophical awareness, but Pisces’ sensitive side may fail to appreciate Aquarius’ radical nature.
Scorpio: while there’s amazing magnetism between the two, they actually may not share a lot in common.
Capricorn: common ground may be short-lived as Capricorns tend to honor tradition, and Aquarius may offer unconventional ideas that could threaten their values.
Taurus: Taurus people are loyal and dependable, but Aquarius shouldn’t expect them to understand all of their crazy ideas. They are a bit more rooted to the ground and may appear stubborn if challenged.
Virgo: Aquarians may annoy the practical Virgo, as they like to surround themselves with clutter and gadgets. However, Virgo will appreciate Aquarius’ analytical nature.
Sagittarius: now there’s a sign who will enjoy Aquarius’ radical ways and crazy ideas. Sagittarius is out of this world too - so they will encourage each other to be unconventional and free.
Aries: a tiny bit of a stubborn match, but Aries will never try to limit Aquarius’ freedom. Aries will appreciate their individuality as much as Aquarius will do the same for them.
Leo: this relationship could be magnetic as their opposites might attract each other. But it’s important to remember that Leos are proud - so teasing can quickly turn into a fight.
Crystals for Aquarians
Amethyst - the birthstone of Aquarius, so it’s extra special to those born under this sign. It is known to balance emotions with intelligence, and it may also help Aquarians to get in touch with their inner selves and teach them to trust their intuition.
Bismuth - being rebellious at heart with a touch of eccentricity is not easy. Social situations and relationships can get tense for Aquarius. Bismuth crystal will help to promote serenity, calmness and stimulate cohesiveness in any relationship or situation.
Aquamarine - perfect for Aquarius to make their dreams a reality. And they got some big dreams! This crystal will also enrich Aquarius’ yearning soul with compassion and empathy!
DIdn’t we promise you that there are some amazing and famous Aquarians? Well, take a look:
Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Michael B. Jordan, Emma Roberts, Elizabeth Olsen (so much talent and good looks!)
Shakira, Harry Styles, Alicia Keys! (can we please sing at least half as good as any of them?)
And of course, Oprah Winfrey. (wow - that’s enough said)
Aquarians are incredibly beautiful for fighting for what is fair and good but should always remember that progress starts on a micro level. So, no matter how grand their plans and ideas might be - a few important things to take on the road are compassion, patience, and empathy.
So along with their typical mantra “I know”, we’d add, “and I feel’. This will let them engage their emotional side as well as their scientific rational one.
