January 20 to February 18

One of the most independent signs of the zodiac, Aquarians are often free-thinkers who like to do things their own way. In modern astrology, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus – the one planet in the solar system that spins on its side. In true rule-breaker style, Uranus is named after a Greek god. All the other planets are named after their Roman deity counterparts.

Aquarius is also co-ruled by Saturn, which brings us to the great Aquarian paradox. Uranus breaks boundaries. Saturn is the planet of boundaries and structure. Within this one zodiac sign, there’s both the drive to shatter the current structure for its flaws and to ideate something new to replace it with!

What does it mean to be an Aquarius?

Aquarius, as the eleventh sign of the zodiac, looks toward what’s coming next as one cycle is about to end, and another begins. Some Aquarians have an uncanny awareness of upcoming trends and are interested in what could be. That’s what makes them excellent innovators and talented in any science and tech-related fields. It’s also where they get their idealism or even utopian stirrings.

What is the personality of an Aquarius?

The most social of all the air signs, Aquarians value friendship. They’re naturally popular if they want to be while remaining true to themselves. Aquarians are often connected to global or community issues. They have a humanitarian streak, whether they have a soft spot for animals or decide to forge a career out of fighting for social justice.

What is the personality of an Aquarius female?

Aquarian women tend to be open-minded and interesting to talk to. More objective than sentimental, don’t expect a lot of emotional outpourings!

Aquarian men are your logical, cool-as-a-cucumber types. Just like Aquarian women, they’re not necessarily the romantic type and do well in relationships where they can have the freedom to be themselves.

Who is an Aquarius compatible with?

Aquarius is compatible with the other air signs, Gemini and Libra, as well as the fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. All of these signs know how to go out and have a good time together!

Who should an Aquarius marry?

For long-term partnerships, Gemini and Libra are good matches. While airy Aquarians can make a lot of sparks fly with Aries and Sagittarius, when it’s never-ending fire and air, you’re going to get an explosion from time to time.

All the air signs, on the other hand, like their own space and freedom yet can make great companions or lovers when paired together. There can be a sense of fairness and respect that can foster a lasting partnership.

What signs does Aquarius attract?

The most curious sign of the zodiac, Geminis tend to be attracted to Aquarius’s originality and uniqueness. Pisces also can get easily drawn in, especially with those who are more avant-garde, while Leo will like Aquarius’s authentic nature.
