Aquarius horoscope explained

Aquarius sounds like it should be a water sign but it’s an air sign. And Aquarians can be a little ‘airy’.

They have strong values of fairness and equality. Being ruled by Uranus, the planet of innovation, Aquarians can be eccentric and pioneering. It is the revolutionary of the zodiac.

Aquarians are symbolised by the ‘water bearer’ and are born between 20 January and 18 February.

Personality traits

  • Forward-thinking
  • Independent
  • Original
  • Anti-authoritarian
  • Problem-solvers
  • Unconventional
  • Stubborn
  • Creative

Authority dampens free-thinking Aquarians. Highly creative, they thrive when they can be their own person and show off their talents. They do not respond well to judgement.

They may sometimes seem distant and can often neglect relationships, because they’re focused on changing the world.

Teamwork and problem-solving come easily to Aquarians, especially if there’s a common goal. However, they do need alone time to recharge and reset.

They’re cautious about letting people inside their circle but will show vulnerability to loved ones. If their feelings aren’t reciprocated, they’ll quickly build a wall that may not come back down.

Aquarius is a good match with other Aquarians, Geminis, and Libras.
