Being familiar with Aquarius characteristics and traits makes it much easier to understand one (or yourself, if you are an Aquarius!). This list is of course by no means exhaustive, but it will give you better insight into the Aquarian mind.
Aquarius is an air sign and the birth dates for an Aquarius fall between January 20th and February 19th. Despite it being an air sign, its symbol is the water carrier, which is usually drawn with two wave like symbols.
Aquarius Personality Traits
Personality traits of the Aquarius include being creative, independent, and entertaining. However, they can also sometimes be impractical and a bit erratic, sometimes even thought to be a bit eccentric. They are social and friendly. Aquarians need their freedom – and they hate to be controlled. They can have the tendency to be stubborn sometimes, especially when their freedom and independence is at stake.
Aquarians hate to be bored and welcome change and excitement. They are open minded to all possibilities and experiences. Because of this, they can sometimes seem inattentive or easily distracted, and often times they will move onto a new idea or project without finishing the last. However, because they are brimming with creative ideas, they can often find solutions to problems that others may have overlooked. Many great inventors have been born under this sign.
Those born under the sign Aquarius are typically very outgoing and attract friends nearly anywhere they go. They are very social and make friends quickly and easily. Aquarians also make for great and loyal friends who will always keep you entertained and doing interesting things.
They love conversation, and the more stimulating the conversation, the better. These are people who like to ask why and explore the possibilities. Aquarius are good communicators and are easy to talk to.
Because Aquarians are constantly searching for the answer to the whys and living for every opportunity, it can sometimes seem as if they are emotionally detached from time to time. It is not that they are unemotional – they just don’t put feelings at a priority. Aquarians care for all people and believe greatly in human rights – but they can often end up hurting many people’s feelings unintentionally because they don’t understand what emotions their actions may cause in others.
It is important in love and relationships that they do not feel tied down. It can be difficult for them to stay in a committed relationship, but it is possible as long as there is plenty of excitement and the other partner does not try to control him or her or interfere with their freedom. They can be quite loyal.
Career and Business
There are a number of great careers and life vocations available that will meet the needs of the Aquarius mind. They do well in creative and inventive fields, as well as environments which are fast paced and ever changing. They like to feel as if they’ve done something with their lives and made a difference in the world, so it is not uncommon to find them in social causes and organizations formed to help others.
