Aquarius Zodiac Sign
Born between January 21st and February 19th, Aquarius belong to the Air element of the zodiac (along with Gemini and Libra). Air signs are generally characterised as being analytical, objective, clever and bit cold.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet that governs technology, innovation, change depicting surprising events, sudden loss and disrupted life. Uranus perfectly mirrors Aquarius’s distinctive attitude.
In terms of Aquarius personality traits, this crazy planet rules disruption, change, and all manner of the unconventional and unexpected sides of our nature. Same goes for the non-traditional nature of the visionary sign of Aquarius.
Aquarius Personality Traits
Aquarians are always linked with the much-emphasized personality traits like Impulsiveness, Unpredictability, Inconsistence, Extremism and Stubbornness. But have you ever wondered what makes an Aquarian tick? What makes them so different from all of the other signs of the Zodiac? Why do people find them unbearable and a bit tough to understand?
People born under the Aquarius sign are often seen as mysterious and an enigma with people in their lives just not understanding them enough. So, let’s now take a closer look at the unique traits and characteristics of Aquarius personality. Only by going through their personality traits, could we make better effort of “getting” them.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign Personality Traits and Characteristics
Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign who aspires to bring radical changes in this world. This free spirited air sign represents Unconventionality and Nonconformist Attitude. Aquarians possess the intelligence and imagination to dream a beautiful planet for the tomorrow’s generation, and also the tenacity to live up their dream to its completion.
Aquarius not only loves Music but they understand it. To an Aquarian, life has a rhythm; everything from happiness to sadness has its own music. It’s funny to see how many spiritually evolved Aquarians can hear the divine orchestra with their ears, when there is actually not a single beat drumming in this physical world. Such a strong connection they have with the music.
Aquarians love to keep an open mind when delving into new ideas and life situations or meeting new people. They do not judge a book by its covers but by going deeply into the pages and reading between the lines. They are very well known for being free and independent thinkers.
You can tell any disgusting thing about yourself to them and see how they never cringe or judge you but instead help you understand yourself better. They do not make decisions or come to conclusions just on the basis of hearsay; instead they love to dive deeper and learn things.
It is generally said that Aquarians suck at lying and that they are not very good liars. But it is exact the contrary. They are very much able to speak a white lie quite convincingly. That doesn’t mean though that they are dishonest or cheat. In fact they are too honest to hide anything from somebody or lie on someone’s face.
Usually an Aquarian before spitting out a lie gives out subtle clues or warning signs telling people that they are about to lie. They hate to speak what’s not a truth.
However there are peculiar situations in life when the given person can’t tolerate the harsh truth, and so just to save the person from sharp shock and the pain, an Aquarian chooses to tell a lie, but not before giving away subtle cues or titbits of Truth.
In some cases when it is of dire need to spit out the Truth they choose to not to say anything at all and take their own sweet time to divulge the painful details. This is where people misunderstand them the most. Whereas they are only saving the other human from the resulting pain!
Usually it takes a lot for an Aquarian to truly lose their equilibrium and get angry. They rarely get a shock! But like everybody else, they too have a limit. Aquarians have a habit of bottling things up until they hit the explosion button. Since they are very understanding and forgiving to their co-humans and they never judge; at times it hits their saturation point, and then they become really angry in a really nasty way. Their rage can surprise the shit out of the people.
Following to that they convert into brutally sarcastic creatures. They can kill people with their sarcasm alone. However people who ‘get’ an Aquarian find their twisted sense of humour very entertaining.
Aquarians simply hate the overbearing personalities and people having an inflated ego. They believe the motto – live and let live!
They stay away from those people who do not give others enough space to make their own decisions or think their own thoughts. For an Aquarian it is a sin to take away a person’s freedom. They consider “the freedom of a soul’ as a sacred gift from God to mankind.
The same rule applies to animal world. They disgust those people who do not love and treat animals like co-creatures of planet Earth.
Human beings have an inherent ability of thinking of themselves as sole and superior creature on Earth. This is what irritates an Aquarian to the limit of madness.
It won’t surprise you to know that many spiritually evolved Aquarians have a strong connection with animal realms. They constantly receive guidance and spirit support from animal spirit guides.
People see an Aquarian as some cold, detached and aloof creature, who does not have the ability to feel intensely. But truth is that they have emotions that run deep within their psyche. Since they analyse everything coming their way, even the big world and planet problems, their mind and heart sometimes get overfull with intense emotions. They do not like it at all when people interrogate them for their emotions and feelings. In fact they don’t find word to voice their deep running feelings.
All they need is alone time to process all that intensity. It is funny to see how an Aquarian can create their own personal recovery-oasis even in the amongst of people and busy world. In that state they are present here bodily whereas their mind is somewhere far beyond this milky way galaxy. You can’t reach their soul when they are in such state.
An spiritually evolved Aquarian can even fall into deep meditation standing in a metro train buzzing with crowd of people and countless distractions.
Aquarians have learned in life the importance of maintaining boundaries. They know very well how a good or bad company impacts one’s personality. That’s why they are always very careful about whom to befriend and allow their world. They are very selective about allowing only sane and really good people into their personal world.
When it comes to counting their close friends they have handfuls. However they have tonnes of cool acquaintances whom they must have picked up from random encounters.
It is generally said about Aquarians that they are everybody’s friend or the whole world is their friend, but in truth there are even less than those handfuls who get them for what they are.
Aquarians are fiercely independent, spontaneous and rebellious. They have a habit of relying upon Only themselves. They also hate being told what to do and what to think. Their rebelliousness becomes more apparent when people try to force their own will, thoughts, notions and judgements upon them.
The fiercely independent characteristics of an Aquarius drive them to make themselves aloof and completely unapproachable from people who like to control others’ lives.
An Aquarian child even refuses to surrender to the will of his/her parents or elders. Many people find this streak of independence and rebelliousness unpleasant, but these are the very qualities in a human that are needed to bring about a radical change in our society and world. Aquarius is a born game changer destined to create ripples of new dawn in a world covered with evil and darkness.
Aquarians are forever a seeker of knowledge. Their interests are diverse. They are avid learners and possess a strong gift of understanding and implementing within themselves complex ideas and concepts, and new ways of thinking. They are eager and quite talented in exploring not only the physical realms but also spiritual realms.
Many philosophers, thinkers, writers and spiritual leaders of mankind have been born to this zodiac sign.
Aquarians are also very adept in learning from their past mistakes. They believe in learning, forgiving, letting go of what’s not useful and finally moving forward towards the new day.
They have very little patience for those people who keep committing the same mistakes all over again in life and never learn from them. An Aquarian despises those people who completely refuse to turn around their miserable life to something good and worthwhile.
Aquarians have strong opinions and they rarely hold back from voicing what they think is not just! However before making such opinions, they have had put a lot of efforts into discovering and contemplating the things from all possible angles.
Only after minutely dissecting a philosophy or any notion or any given life situation, do they make opinion about it, and stand firmly with it. But they are not fanatics, who blatantly cancel out on any other proffered perspective. They do love to listen what the other person has to say.
Aquarians always strive to look best in others, they love to give them a second chance. When somebody close to them screws up in life, or even screw them up for the sake, they are hard wired to look what’s inherently good in people. When they find it, they are quite willing to forgive the person and give them a second chance rather than holding onto the negativity and other person’s faults.
But when somebody utterly refuses to learn from his/her mistakes, a mature Aquarian then turns away from that person. They become totally unresponsive and detached. Nothing can move then such a cold creature.
Thanks to their ruling planet, Uranus, Aquarians are excellent at being downright weird. They have already achieved the heights of being strange and a wierdo in life. Guess what, they totally love to see shocked looks on people’s faces! They despise to be and act normal. Aquarians know very well that in order to shake up the old rotten structures in society and harmful old repetitive life patterns, something totally out-of-the-box and extremely weirdness is required!
Ask their friends or partners, an Aquarian is too good on playing deadliest pranks on them or scare the living daylights out of their loved ones. Even after that those people totally love these eccentricities of their dear Aquarian.
