Dates – When are Aquarius People Born?

Aquarius is the star sign of anyone born between January 20 – February 18. It is the only zodiac sign ruled by the rebellious planet Uranus, the planet of innovation, individuality and transformation. This sun sign loves to explore the new and is the sign most likely to be drawn to ‘New Age’ ideas and practices, like Tarot, Astrology, alternative healing and reincarnation, which has earned Aquarius it’s off-beat or quirky label.

Temperament – What are the Characteristic Aquarius Personality Traits?

Aquarians are ruled by the element Air and the planet Uranus, making them the most intelligent, unique and inspirational of all the star signs. Often referred to as the visionaries of the zodiac, Aquarius sets the trend, they never follow. Aquarius is a fixed air sign meaning they tend to be stubborn and do not like the idea of fitting in with the crowd. The symbol of this sun sign is the water bearer, the Healer of the Universe, which is why Aquarius are considered the humanitarians of the zodiac. They are represented by The Star card in Tarot, reinforcing their unique ‘star’ qualities, spirituality and healing.

Despite their obvious charm and friendly manner people born under the sun sign Aquarius tend to be cool and distant and they deal with others on a practical rather than an emotional level. If you want logical, well thought out advice, then your Aquarius friend is the person to ask. In fact, this star sign loves to give advice to others and, being an Air sign, they are gifted communicators and love to talk.

Many Aquarians are visionaries and are able to spot a trend before anyone else as they see connections that others fail to see. They can untangle complex issues – whether emotional or practical – simply because they are easily able to see the ‘bigger picture’. Some would call this zodiac sign unconventional, others call them a little crazy or eccentric, great humanitarians and great innovators. One thing everyone agrees is that they are original – so don’t try to compare them with anyone else!

Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Aquarius?

When Aquarius enters a room, every head turns in his or her direction. Their glamorous appearance, ready smile and friendly manner draws the opposite sex to their side like moths to a flame. Attracting a partner is never an issue for anyone born under this sun sign but when it comes to relationships they are reluctant to let their emotions show. Perhaps this is because Aquarius is unusual in that they don’t feel the need for romance in order to live a happy life. They love to socialize but falling in love is not something that concerns them – a meeting of minds is what attracts Aquarius the most. Often referred to as aloof or cold, Aquarius may simply be busy dreaming up alternate realities and can be in danger of isolating themselves by living too much in their head. If they do decide to pursue a relationship, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius and Sagittarius make excellent partners.

Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Aquarius People?

Aquarians need their own space so any job that requires working in a closed environment with lots of people is not for them. This doesn’t mean you don’t work well with other – in fact, the opposite is true – but they must be given the opportunity to shine! Put the brilliant Aquarius behind a desk and ask them to do a boring job and they simply shut down.

This astrological sign has produced more famous people than any other – inventors, scientists, reformers, presidents and actors. Jobs that involve working with hi-tech equipment, with machinery or anything mechanical are good choices. Aquarius is born with a highly-tuned humanitarian instinct which makes them ideal social workers, counselors, astrologers or any job that makes them feel they are making a real difference to the human race.

Wellness – What Health Issues do Aquarius People Have?

This star sign is generally blessed with good health and if they take care of themselves should not have too many health problems. The area most associated with Aquarius is the cardiovascular system so regular exercise and a healthy, low-fat diet and a non-smoking environment is important. The lower back and the ankles are also areas to watch – regular stretching helps to keep the back free of strain. The ankles are prone to weakness so make sure to wear comfortable, well-fitted shoes and not to overdo exercise.
