75 Aquarius Quotes That Perfectly Capture the Personality of the Water Bearer

Independent and quirky are just a few traits of the zodiac rebel.

Innovative, creative, self-reliant, progressive, unpredictable and moody are some words often used to describe Aquarians—those born between January 20 and February 18 under the 11th sign of the zodiac. The final air sign in astrology, Aquarius is also quite humanitarian—as it is represented by the mythical water carrier who heals by distributing water and giving eternal life.

This collection of Aquarius quotes can provide some insight into the quirky and fiercely independent folks represented by this zodiac sign—like celebrities Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Harry Styles and Ellen DeGeneres. They may even strike a chord with you if you have a loyal Aquarian in your own life!
