Happy Birthday, Aquarius! The 11th astrological sign in the zodiac, Aquarius is the sign of the Water Bearer. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this sign between approximately January 20 and February 18.
You are the innovators of the Zodiac. The best way to understand your sign is to think about the progression through the earth signs of our celestial heavens. Taurus plants the seed, Virgo harvests the seed and Capricorn represents the pinnacle of civilization. What comes after this? The unknown. The yet-to-be discovered. The future.
Aquarius sees the world as it should be, could be or will be. Definitely tuned into the beat of a different drummer, you do things in your own way. There are, however, some Aquarians who act a lot more like Capricorns. Go back and read that section if you don’t identify with the particular personality aspects discussed here.
Freedom is extremely important to you. You are destined to bring the world new ways of doing and looking at things and must have the space to be able to manifest it. Your sense of style is unique and sometimes flamboyant. You can relate to almost all others in a detached way and you are dedicated to bringing humanity a step closer to fair and just. Injustice pushes your buttons like nothing else.
You have many friends and you are conversant in an abundance of topics. You follow your intuition with a sense of purpose and you listen to it even when it seems odd. Somehow you know that it truly provides the best guidance.
You want everyone to be happy. If there is a way that you can make it happen, you will do it. Like a mama duck, you sometimes have people following behind you and seeking your inspiration. You are very good at leading groups and can often be found teaching unusual topics. Friends know that they can look to you for upcoming trends.
In relationships, you do best with someone who understands your need for freedom.
Best matches for you: Sagittarius shares your love of philosophy and together you will go far. Another Aquarius can understand you from the inside out and will bring you peace.
Good matches for you: Gemini engages you in lots of late night conversation as the two of you want to discuss everything. Aries brings out your adventurous side and gets you moving in many directions.
