Aquarius Zodiac Sign Introduction
To many people, myself included, this is the most interesting of all the signs. The reason is that these people are not sheep: they do their own thing, in their own way, etc, etc. And in pronounced cases, their way is unusual, quirky, or downright eccentric. They will not conform to imposed restrictions or trends. They indulge in their own freedom and independence, even more so than Sagittarians, but remaining very friendly and gregarious in the process. The other strong Aquarian trait is that of humanitarian beliefs. They think for the group, or for society itself, rather than for themselves.
They find technology comes second nature, and are often original thinkers with scientific minds. They can though be fixed in their viewpoints and not very adaptable, which can cause problems for them being as their views can be seen as downright odd!
Another infamous trait of Aquarians is their detachment with friends and partners. Not the most romantic of signs, this aspect is worsened by this terrible habit they seem to have of switching off all emotion when the moment suits them – be it temporarily or permanent.

About Aquarius Personality
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the water-bearer. Aquarius symbol or glyph represents two ripples of water, or the conducting waves of energy such as light or electricity. The Sun is in Aquarius from around 21 January until around 19 February every year. Aquarius is classified as being of the positive polarity (expressive & spontaneous), of the air element (intellectual, communicative, and mentally active), and of the fixed quality (intense, steadfast, and resistant to change).
Aquarius has a detached, sometimes scientific or even clinical attitude, expressing unconventionality, with an urge to identify with the progressive aims of society and of the community. The Aquarius type is original, inventive and progressive, and has strong idealistic aims and humanitarian feelings. Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus and is unpredictable and erratic, attracted to the radically new and the unusual, frequently scientifically inclined, and generally friendly. Aquarius rejects worn-out traditions and old ways of operating and can enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority. Aquarius dislikes routine and would prefer to be with those who are ushering in a newer order and fostering advanced thinking. Friends are important to Aquarius, especially those who share common ideas and interests. Aquarius is a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. Indeed, Aquarius resists anything or anyone threatening its independence. Aquarius can put a great deal of energy into a cause, but can also be dogmatic, and allow adherence to its own often revolutionary and unorthodox opinions to detach it from more mundane reality.
Often somewhat aloof and impersonal, Aquarius’s approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts of the sort that don’t usually stem from true emotions. Aquarius has a good conceptual understanding of human nature but can lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many human situations. Unintegrated use of the Aquarius manner can become expressed as perversely eccentric or merely cranky, fanatically rebellious and rudely tactless, with a lack of personal integrity and principle, and too detached and erratic.
Physically Aquarius rules the calves and ankles, as well as the circulatory system generally. There may be a tendency to varicose veins, sprained or broken ankles, or circulatory and cardiac disorders. Aquarius is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Uranus.
Lets break down the Aquarius Personalities into the Decans
Aquarius 1st decan – January 20th to 30th – Saturn ruler (Double Aquarius)
This type is the ultimate humanitarian. For a person that seems to be rather cool on the outside, they have an enormous amount of empathy for the people around them. They enjoy dreaming of a Utopian society with all of the trimmings. Life rarely lives up to their ideals, however they are realistic enough to know the difference.
Aquarius 2nd decan – January 31st to February 9th – Mercury ruler (Aquarius + Gemini Influence)
This Water Bearer loves to get out and socialize. The bigger the group the better, provided they get to have their say. They usually possess a very fast mind and will experience many sudden flashes of insight over their lifetime. Slightly more nervous and chatty than the other two types. Needs a good deal of ongoing humor to feel balanced.
Aquarius 3rd decan – February 10th to 18th – Venus ruler (Aquarius + Libra Influence)
This Aquarius absolutely needs to have an outlet for socializing. Very popular within their circles, they seem to bump into people wherever they go. Outdoor concerts, large gatherings of any type will likely peak their interest. They’re able to work their way up many social ladders through their vast network of friends and acquaintances.
Good Side of Aquarius

This is a person that really needs commitment in their life. Loyalty is one of the most valuable gifts you can give them, and they will return the favor.
They don’t like to be tied down in any way. Freedom and independence are important to them. The true meaning of a free spirit.
They don’t like to be told what to think. Instead, they prefer to be creative thinkers. They believe that there should only be independent thinking, and they will not respect someone who tells them what to think.
They are highly creative, artistic, and imaginative. They often strive for fame in life.
Most of them are good at speaking to people, but not always at conversing. Other people need to initiate conversations sometimes.
They have a very nurturing and caring nature with family and friends alike. They want to ensure that everyone is taken care of.
Bad side of Aquarius
Sometimes they are overly private or tend to keep secrets, even about things that they know others should know about.
They can show signs of selfishness and egocentricity. Their self-centeredness might come across as arrogant to others.
One moment they may show insecurities or nervousness, and the next moment they might take over the spotlight.
When they want to convey something, they can be very blunt in conversation. When they do so, they don’t consider other people’s feelings. This can lead to hurt feelings.
They are also known to be very unpredictable at times and can be erratic.
Aquarius Careers and Work
One of their most distinguishing characteristics is that they have a very giving and compassionate nature. At the same time, they have a naturally creative, playful, and adventurous side, and they are always learning new concepts. Of all the signs, they are more likely to have a career that would be considered unusual or unconventional. They would prefer not to work in a corporate environment. Their desire is to be independent, not to be worker drones. They are truly looking for autonomy in the workplace. It is important to them to be able to move around as they please and to be able to express themselves in a way that they desire. For them, the same old way of doing things will not suffice. If you want a fresh approach or perspective on something, these are the people you go to. For businesses that are looking for these types of people, they will not let you down at all.
The best jobs for them are as follows:
Having the opportunity to develop new ideas and theories as a researcher or scientist. Inventors and innovators. Aviators or airline pilots. Designers or artists where they can apply their creativity. Theatre and film actors. By developing their musical talents, they can become musicians or singers.

Constellation of Aquarius
Aquarius, the 11th zodiacal constellation, is always represented by some form of water, either a water bearer or a bucket of water appearing to pour out from the map. Aquarius lies away from the Milky Way, thus it is mostly devoid of any bright objects or deep space objects. The Sun passes through the constellation of Aquarius from mid-February until mid-March.
Ganymede, the water bearer represented by the constellation Aquarius, was a beautiful young man. One day while Ganymede was tending to his father’s flock, the great Zeus spotted him. Zeus and all the other Gods on Olympus favored the boy. So Zeus transformed himself into a large bird, swooped down, and whisked Ganymede into the heavens to forever be the cup-bearer of the Gods.

Frequently Asked Questions
Colors, Gemstones, and Flowers oh my!
Your colors are vivid neon-bright blues and unique mixed and mingled hues, tints and tones.
Your gemstones are turquoise and amethyst-dangle them on hand made bracelets, affix them to antique velvet chokers, keep an amethyst geode by your computer, it radiates your eclectic style.
What you love
Old stuff and new stuff and ultra modern stuff, things that are unusual, obscure history, retro fashions before they are a fad, radical brilliance, the underdog, causes, freedom and independence.
Who you are
Friendly. Independent. Unique. You’re the one who is most likely to make a statement out of your Life. You thrive on being different. Great for inciting others and getting your friends moving, you’re also quick to bow out and pursue “doing your own thing” once a crowd gathers. Cliques drive you away.
The Best things about you
Are your originality, your individuality, your honesty, your courage, your confidence, and your competitiveness.
What Most People don’t understand about you
Your innocent nature, your playful spirit, and your kindness. Your friends and colleagues know you are driven, always striving for excellence. People rarely notice the quiet, vulnerable part of you that is trying to discover “You” through your successes and accomplishments.
Your Friendship Style
You judge a person for Who They Are, not for what color they are, not for what they believe in, not on what clothes they’re wearing that day. You’re the one most likely to befriend the rebel, the trouble maker, the outcast. Difficult people are magnetic to you. You’ll do yourself a favor and open up neat new possibilities if you’re not too quick to shy away from “the clique groupies.” Give those style mongers a chance to flash their individuality. You might be surprised. You are the original Anti-Snob.
Your Romance Style
You are far shyer than your friends would ever guess when it comes to romance. Sometimes, you just don’t get the whole love/passion-thing. Then there is the commitment aspect of it all…and you, Aquarius, above and beyond all else thrive on feeling free to chase your interests. Fickleness, however, is not about who you like but “what” you like. You need to be able to toss out old ideas for new ones and to pursue a huge diversity of interesting things. Once you promise your heart you are loyal and steadfast. Where the typical romantic gestures fail to excite you…finding a common cause, bond or interest with an interesting someone lights your fires.
As A Relationship Partner
The emotional partner of Aquarius should be tolerant of the need for a lot of personal space, and not give an impression of possessiveness. They are very good at living by themselves.
As A Parent
The Aquarian parent tends to bossiness and fostering independence in the child. While communications will always be good, there may be an emotional barrier that will never be overcome. The Aquarius child is likely to be clever and somewhat erratic. Inventiveness and problem-solving abilities should be encouraged from an early age.
