Aquarius Personality Traits: Everything You Need To Know About The Zodiac Sign

While it may not be Aquarius season, it is definitely time to focus on the community-minded zodiac sign if any of your big three falls within the water-bearer’s scope.

Notoriously focused on the collective good, the Aquarius is committed to making the world a better place as the wintery sign loves to uplift their community. Seen as the generous geniuses of the horoscope, Aquarians are dedicated to uprooting the status quo for the greater good as they love to disrupt norms in exchange for a wide societal impact.

Aquarians are the 11th astrological sign of the zodiac.

The start of Aquarius season coincides with the middle of winter, and while the sign bears the symbol of a water motif, the Aquarius is actually an intellectual air sign that loves the solitude and contemplation the stark time of year encourages.

Aquarians are ruled by Uranus and Saturn.

Aligned with the 11th house, the Aquarius represents our deepest hopes and desires for the future. Perfect for our post-COVID-19 and anti-status quo society, the Aquarius is determined to abolish the patriarch and dismantle arbitrary and oppressive societal structures. The Age of the Aquarius is synonymous with amplifying and applying innovative solutions for the entire community, alluding to the air sign’s humanitarian streak. Aquarius unites all signs of the zodiac, creating the perfect environment to move towards a more rewarding future as a collective. Kind reminder: there is no need to dim that kaleidoscope light of yours, for those that don’t understand your radical, new-age thinking will soon come to accept you as a revolutionary.

Aquarius Compatibility

Aquarians are most compatible with fellow air signs Geminis and Libras, as well as the fiery Leos, as they are a sister sign. Sagittarius and Aries can also appeal to Aquarius' curiosity as they present an intoxicating desire to become fully immersed in carefree spontaneity while enjoying the beauty of the present moment.

Air (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra) + Air (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra) = let your dreams get carried away with a gust of fresh air and perspectives.

Air (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra) + Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) = fan the flames; the bigger the fire, the bigger the heart.

Aquarius Characteristics

Personality Traits

The Aquarius mantra is: “Will you serve as a vessel for the depths of my mind, seeing within it my visions for the future?” Aquarians are the last air sign of the zodiac and carry the horoscope’s humanitarian ideals along with distinct, yet innovative, expressions of thought. In the tarot, Aquarius is represented by the Star card of faith and healing as it advocates for the wellbeing of humanity as a whole. Carrying the symbol of the water-bearer, the Aquarius helps us account for the responsibility we have to our society at large, starting with our own inner world. Aquarians are social butterflies that often find themselves as the leaders of pivotal movements focused on social development and progress. These brilliant scholars and masterminds are the future of our society, bridging the gap between what exists, what is just and what has yet to materialize for actionable progress to take place.


Aquarians are undoubtedly forward-thinking, and sometimes their oddities can be misunderstood by the masses as the air sign’s interests don’t often align with current social constructs. Instead, Aquarians like to push boundaries and innovate on their own terms, which makes them so special. Often, they find themselves bullied during their childhood for their quirky behavior, but Aquarian’s unique mind and eccentricity makes them creative trendsetters.


The air sign’s abstract state of mind can make them seem aloof or distant to others as they are often lost in the clouds, in their own thoughts. Their distant feelings can even be perceived as cold or distant to others. Fortunately this response does not faze the humanitarian, for their sole purpose in life is not how they appear to others, but rather what they bring to the people. Remember, your unique, ingenious mindset is what sets you apart from the rest of the world.


Love & Sex

Aquarians are a sign that need to be mentally stimulated as they are energized by intellectual and truly deep conversations as communication is the key to their hearts. Give them the freedom to experiment and express their authentic selves without judgment and their loyalty knows no bounds.


These inquisitive souls somewhat live to serve and uplift others, inspiring their colleagues and friends to explore and examine their passions with a new lens where old systems of thought are deconstructed and reimagined. An Aquarius friend is usually one to take you out of your comfort zone in order to show you just how strong and brave you are.

At Work

Aquarians thrive when they have the opportunity to play, discover and invent. Providing a flexible and perhaps liberating framework allows them to create on their own terms, inspiring imagination and distinctive creations.
