What is the personality of an Aquarius?
Aquarius, the 11th zodiac sign, is symbolized by the Water Bearer, a symbol of the Gods delivering nourishment to the Earth. Aquarius people are progressive, independent, bright, unique, and idealistic, according to legend. Air is their elemental sign, as it is for Gemini and Libra.
Aquarians, like air, lack a distinct shape and appear to defy classification. Others are joyful and active, while other Aquarians are reserved and kind. Even still, many of the inner attributes shared by these two sorts of people are similar.
For one thing, Aquarius enjoys serious thought, particularly when it comes to societal issues. They see the world as their oyster, and they want to do everything they can to better it and aid others. This is where their humanitarian side shines through; they yearn to bring about positive change, which is an essential feature of Uranus, Aquarius’ ruling planet.
For Aquarians, mental stimulation is one of the most important aspects of happiness. They will rapidly feel bored and uninterested if they do not have it. They also require a lot of time alone to reflect and refuel.
Finally, being an Aquarius typically entails being unique and unconventional. Aquarians are known for embracing their originality and individuality, even if it makes them stand out in an odd or unconventional way from others. This trait draws individuals to fresh, unusual, or “out there” things like edgy fashion, sci-fi/fantasy, the avant-garde, and cutting-edge technology.
The variety of colors and functions of the garnet (January’s gemstone), Aquarians’ most popular birthstone, aptly encapsulates their eccentric tastes and hobbies.
Is it uncommon to be born under the sign of Aquarius?
The 12 zodiac signs each have their own set of personality qualities and are unique in their own way (they each even have a corresponding tarot card and connection to your health). Nothing, however, compares to being the rarest. You might be wondering what the rarest zodiac sign is.
Aquarius is the sign that persons born between January 20 and February 18 belong to. “January and February have the fewest births, making Aquarius the rarest zodiac sign,” says Lisa Stardust, an astrologer in New York City and author of Saturn Return Survival Guide: Navigating This Cosmic Rite of Passage.
Is Aquarius a narcissist?
Saturn-ruled zodiac signs put their all into all they do, and they expect others to do the same or even better.
All of these features combine to make Aquarius the zodiac’s most misunderstood sign.
Many people believe they are cruel, yet they are no more cruel than the other zodiac signs.
People who are unfamiliar with Aquarius may misinterpret their normal, everyday behavior for rudeness or lack of politeness, but the truth is that they are simply doing what comes naturally to them.
Are Aquarians oddballs?
Is there someone in your life with whom you’re completely enamored, but you’re not sure whether they even recognize you? That individual is most likely an Aquarius. They’re complex, crystalline, enigmatic, all-knowing, occasionally oblivious, prophetic weirdos, and the fact that they’re veiled in mystery simply adds to the delight of delving into their minds. Also, an Aquarius is constantly hungry. But that’s something we’ll talk about later.
Aquarius has always been the most perplexing of the zodiac signs for me. And I don’t believe I’m the only one that feels this way. Perhaps this is why I adore Aquarius so much. There’s something about them, something inherent in their very essence, that if you’re not an Aquarius and you think about this paradox too hard, your head will whirl around, twist off your body, and sail out into space. And if an Aquarius watched that happen, saw your head fly out into the distance, an Aquarius would simply track the trajectory of your flying head, grin calmly, and then walk away since they have other things on their minds. They’re always preoccupied with something else.
But let’s return to their dichotomous nature for a moment. Not only is Aquarius the only sign ruled by two planets (Saturn and Uranus), but it’s also an air sign (which makes sense because Aquarians are always thinking, thinking, thinking), yet it’s personified by a Water-bearer, a twin set of waves, which speaks to the enormous emotional depth and overabundance of feelings that Aquarians carry with them everywhere. Air and water, intellect and emotion, thought and feeling, on the other hand, are not natural companions; in fact, they clash. However, rather than causing strife and confusion, an Aquarius is capable of carrying all of this within them and using it to, well, see into the future. Whereas most people would be overwhelmed by the weight of the world, of knowing everything there is to know (a Pisces would be unable to handle it at all; a Cancer would be reduced to tears), an Aquarius takes all of that knowledge and looks ahead to the days ahead, figuring out how to navigate them. (Okay, an Aquarius may be moved to tears at times, but then they taste the salt on their lips and become distracted, if not a little turned on, since an Aquarius is a strange, freaky freak.)
All of these inconsistencies, all of this mysticism, all of this… weirdness, all of it makes Aquarians appear strange. They are, after all, legitimately strange! They frequently say things that make others uncomfortable, but this is because the truth makes people uncomfortable. An Aquarius enjoys making others squirm. But they can’t help but know a lot of stuff and aren’t scared to share what they know with you. An Aquarius is a truth seeker who considers himself an authority on the subject. After all, only an Aquarius could have copyrighted the phrase “What I Know for Sure” (hello, Oprah), because only an Aquarius knows everything. The rest of us (Gemini, Capricorn) may believe we do at times, but only an Aquarius truly does. This is why having an Aquarius as a friend is so beneficial. Nobody can give better counsel than you. Nobody will be able to tell you when you’re lying than you. Nobody will be more willing or capable of assisting you in manifesting the future you desire since they have already seen it unfold, because they are prophets.
Despite this, Aquarius can appear to be disorganized. They are frequently late for events. They don’t want to sleep, and sunrise is more of a hint that the night is about to get better for them than a sign of the morning. Internal clocks just do not exist for them. However, this does not imply that they are not accomplishing their goals. The most frightening aspect of an Aquarius is how much they accomplish. Even if the work they’re doing happens while you’re sleeping, an Aquarius is highly productive. In comparison to an Aquarius, we are all always napping.
Here’s a list of several well-known Aquarians, and don’t tell me that none one them hasn’t accomplished more in a single day than you have in your whole life: Oprah Winfrey is a television personality. Toni Morrison is a novelist. Abraham Lincoln was a president of the United States. Angela Davis is a well-known actress. Dr. Dre is a rapper from the United States. Lorde, Audre. Thomas Edison is a famous inventor. Kerry Washington is the president of the United States of America. Judy Blume is a well-known author. Alicia Keys is an American singer-songwriter. Harry Styles is a British singer. Ellen DeGeneres is an American talk show host. Ed Sheeran is a British singer-songwriter.
All of those people have accomplished a great deal. The majority of stuff is excellent! And, look, you can’t deny that an Aquarius is doing things you don’t like (see: Sheeran), but you can’t deny that they’re getting things done. And that they are incredibly skilled at predicting what other people would enjoy. An Aquarius is frequently quite popular (see Sheeran) because they have a good sense of what others will appreciate in the future.
What, on the other hand, does an Aquarius enjoy? This is the genuine query! We all admire Aquarius and are frequently captivated with them, but what do they enjoy? The truth is that it’s difficult to say! Is it true that Oprah’s “favorite things” list, which she releases every year, are indeed the items that bring her joy in the long run? No! Obviously not. Because the list changes every year. As a quirky prophet, they realize that everything is ephemeral, thus no Aquarius lays genuine value on anything material. This is why an Aquarius will advise you to get a tattoo with no meaning since assuming that meaning can ever reach anything approximating permanence is a load of nonsense. An Aquarius, on the other hand, will have tattoos that scream SYMBOLISM!! If you tell an Aquarius that, they will stare you down and vow that whatever meaning you find is all in your imagination. Isn’t that the idea, though? You’ll ponder and perhaps even scream. An Aquarius, on the other hand, will just tell you that there is no point to anything before taking a long pull on their e-cigarette and dashing and sliding down a snowy street with abandon. You would have toppled if you tried to leave like that. An Aquarius will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
So, what does an Aquarius like to do? Are you starting to wonder if Aquarians are just a bunch of cerebral mystics who don’t enjoy anything sensual? Stop inquiring about it! Because it isn’t the case. In fact, Aquarians are consummate sensualists who enjoy experiencing a variety of sensations at once. But what does an Aquarius enjoy the most? I believe I’ve worked it out. An Aquarius enjoys eating. I can tell you one thing for sure: an Aquarius is constantly hungry.
I’m currently thinking about two distinct Aquariuses I’ve met. In addition, I’m thinking about chicken. Before the doom, one Aquarius and I had a doomed love tale (“doomed love,” how redundant! ), but before the doom, he told me about going home one night and being so angry by my absence in his home that he ate a whole chicken. With his hands, no less! He was also a vegetarian. The other Aquarius and I have a Google doc where we keep track of where we want to eat chicken. What is the link between these two events? It’s both chicken and it’s not. Of course, what it truly is is hunger. An Aquarius is always hungry, and food can sometimes satisfy that desire; other times, food is merely a stopgap measure, and still other times, an Aquarius has a hunger that can consume the entire planet.
This appetite is what keeps an Aquarius on the move. It is because of this hunger that an Aquarius would be a shark if they were an animal. An Aquarius would be a Venus flytrap if they were a flower. An Aquarius would be a vampire if they were a monster. They’d be white if they were a color, because they’d be consuming every other color in the universe. They’d be a studded collar if they were a piece of jewelry, because they’d be attempting to contain everything that was inside of them, and they’d want to remind you they were a little bit dangerous.
An Aquarius, on the other hand, is a lot more dangerous, because the truth is always dangerous, weird, and exciting, just like an Aquarius, who does things all the time that would make you scared if you were them (like that time I saw Styles stage-dive into a crowd of teenage girls who didn’t have enough upper-body strength to keep him aloft), but that don’t make them scared because they just know they’ll be fine. As you start to descend a slope, an Aquarius will ride you around on their bike’s handlebars, encouraging you to lift your arms up with them. It doesn’t matter if it’s pouring or if the road is slick and slippery; just raise your arms with them. You know everything will be fine if an Aquarius tells you to do something. An Aquarius has a lot of knowledge. You can rely on them.
