Aquarius Zodiac Sign (The Water Bearer)
Ruler Planet: Uranus
Zodiac Date: January 21 – February 19
DEPENDABLE thoughtful fair
The Aquarian is impartial, generous, interested in others. Strong-willed. They are original, idealistic, rebellious, independent, inventors, open minded and honest. They are analytical, serving and socially aware people. They are imaginative and excellent planners. They love working on large projects and implementing new things.
♒Franklin D. Roosevelt
Idealistic, candid, communicative, thoughtful.
None, Aquarians are perfect in every way.
OTOH: Never try to keep an Aquarius from flying their freak flag high. ~Aliza Kelly Faragher
Despite the word “aqua” in its name, Aquarius is actually the last air sign of the zodiac. Aquarius is represented by the water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land. Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. These revolutionary thinkers fervently support “power to the people,” aspiring to change the world through radical social progress. Every Aquarian is a rebel at heart: These air signs despise authority and anything that represents conventionality. Free-spirited and eccentric, they can often be identified by their offbeat fashion sensibilities, unusual hobbies, and nonconformist attitude.
Like Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio, the other fixed signs of the zodiac, Aquarius can have a bit of a stubborn streak. This is often considered an Achilles’ heel. (In fact, in medical astrology Aquarius governs the ankles.) Aquarian obstinacy stems from strong, righteous conviction and is quelled as soon as an Aquarius gets the chance to enact change. Because these water bearers are so deeply motivated by the spirit of egalitarianism, they enjoy teamwork and participating in communities of like-minded individuals.
