Aquarians (January 20th – February 18th), belong to the Air element of the zodiac (along with Gemini and Libra – who they have the most romantic compatibility with, FYI).

Aquarians are ruled by Uranus, which is the planet of invention, innovation, space travel and aerodynamics. In short – they are like mad professors!

Aquarians not only want to save the world, but they’ve got the engineering and intellectual smarts to actually have a plan on how to do it too, Tells Hirav Shah, Renowned Business Astrologer & Astro-Business Strategist.

Traits of Aquarians

1.Original Originals

No two Aquarians are alike—and an Aquarius will be the first to tell you that. They relish their status as the original originals, the true freaks and geeks of the zodiac.

2. Humanitarianism

But as important as their individuality is cultivating a sense of solidarity with the world. This sign is all about humanitarianism, so everything they do is considered on a global scale. It’s not just about what’s good for them—it’s about what’s good for the world. (Which also usually happens to be good for them too.)

3. Out Of The Box Thinking

Rebellious in nature and unique, the Aquarius zodiac sign signifies intelligence, spontaneity and independence. Aquarians have an out of the box thinking and eccentric perspective. They can either be cold and emotionally detached, or extremely emotional. Sometimes their mind is too advanced for some people to understand.

4. Master At Hiding

Master at hiding their true feelings, they have a dark side which they would not bring out.

5. They Don’t Like Suggestions

Aquarians don’t like being told what they should or should not do, even when it comes to what’s in their closets. Aquarians make their own mind up and then stick to it. You can not cajole or persuade them.

Aquarians are very upfront people, and they don’t do shenanigans or shady business. They’ll tell you how it is and feel no two ways about it if you don’t like it. Some people find them aloof or cold, but they just keep their emotions more buttoned down than most.
