Aquarians are mature, self-sufficient, intelligent, extraordinary, and hopeful. Their elemental sign is Air. Aquarians, like air, don’t have a distinct form and seem to defy categorization. Others are vivacious and energetic, while others are peaceful and sensitive.

What are the characteristics of Aquarius?
If you were born in late January or early to mid-February, your zodiac sign is Aquarius, the Water Bearer, who is symbolized by Uranus and the element air. Aquarius is known for being progressive, optimistic, bright, and highly creativeas well as a touch eccentric! Of course, there’s a lot more to the Aquarius personality than this.
Continue reading to find out what this sign implies and which Aquarius characteristics are the best and worst. We’ll also discuss how Aquarius does in love and other relationships, as well as what to do if you’re an Aquarius and how to react to one if you’re not.
What do Aquarians excel at?
Aquarians have traditionally prided themselves on showing their distinct skills and talents in the workplace. They enjoy putting their thoughts to work and thrive in environments where they can come up with novel ideas, assist others, and stay on the cutting edge of technology.
What brings joy to Aquarius?
Because air signs are more emotional than other zodiac signs, it’s simple to see why Aquarius is so compassionate.
It can be difficult to know how to please them because they are one of the zodiac’s most compassionate but reserved signs.
Indifference Or Being Out Of Touch
Aquarius is drawn to companions that bring their own ideas to the discussion and are up to date on current events. The biggest turn-off is someone who doesn’t have anything to say, says Lee. What irritates Aquarians the most are those who aren’t truly enthusiastic about what they believe.
Despite the fact that these signs do not give trends any thought, they also turn away people who are locked in ancient customs. They don’t like old things, Lee explains. Antiquated methods of thinking do not impress Progressive Aquarius.
Conformity And Boring Routines
A mate who lacks excitement will cause an Aquarius to become chilly and aloof. Unpredictable air signs are guaranteed to be turned off by boring, predictable love. Relationship ruts are a recipe for disaster, so these people need to keep bringing pleasure, adventure, and learning into their relationships.
Forced Emotional Intimacy
It’s a big no-no to press an Aquarius native to open up right away or reveal every aspect of their life narrative, as this sign is shy. They enjoy conversing and will undoubtedly allow you into their lives over time, but only on their terms they must never be rushed or pressured.
Don’t get too intimate or mushy with them too soon, either; expressing deep emotions right away isn’t their cup of tea. Waterbearers are calm, collected, aloof, and emotionally disconnected from life, therefore outrageously effusive words will only make them feel uneasy.
To an Aquarius, those who are unsure of themselves in social situations can come across as distant. And it will drive the socially conscious, gregarious air sign away, since they can’t afford to be dragged to the sidelines.
Undermining Their Triumphs
Never try to outshine an Aquarius’ accomplishments or take credit for their good deeds. If there is work involved in anything, Aquarius does not want to be overlooked, says Lee. Aquarius is a brainiac because they put work into it, not because they are born brainiacs, as some people believe. As a result, you should pay attention.
Those born under this sign are consumed with the desire for attention and praise, and they will reject anyone who does not fully appreciate their individuality.
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.
What is the adversary of Aquarius?
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are Aquarius’ most likely adversaries. Taurus and Aquarius have trouble seeing things in the same manner, according to Jaye, with Taurus favoring rules and Aquarius wanting to do things their own way.
