Aquarius the Water Bearer is the sign of visionaries, unconventionality, and intellectual independence.
Aquarians are the people who deviate from the crowd and go their own way. They are always after intellectual stimulation, constantly discovering something new, forming new opinions and stubbornly traveling their way regardless of what other people think.
Aquarians are filled with paradoxes; they are interested in the opposite ends of the spectrum. They like to be alone yet are social butterflies; they like to experience both sides and see both opinions as they formulate new ideas with their forward-thinking, active mind.
Aquarians have a 'live and let live' policy in which everyone is free to be themselves. An Aquarian never judges others because as human beings, we are all equal and entitled to our own opinions. They are verbally skilled and very witty; they observe people and learn how to interact with others through observation. They can be masters of manipulation in justifying anything they do or think. As a result, they can deal with any type of personality and adapt to any situation.
Aquarians welcome change because boredom is their enemy. Anything new is an opportunity to Aquarians. Aquarians can act as an expert on any topic. They are very good at inflating their own importance - they feel it is deserved because their eccentricity makes them unique.
Conventional people beware: Aquarians like to shock and deviate from the norm; this is how they live. Aquarians are known to pick at anyone they find weak or dull-minded. It is simply an easy target for verbal exercise for them; no harm is meant, but it might be taken from the other person.
Deep inside, Aquarians would never intentionally hurt anyone, as they have respect for every human being, even though this might not seem apparent to the more emotional types.

Friends and Family
Even though Aquarians are great with groups of people, it takes a bit when it comes to making close friends. Deeply sensitive, and cautious, closeness means vulnerability to an Aquarian, and this is not something to be taken lightly. The Aquarian’s direct, "no nonsense" approach in combination with their strong values can make it challenging to get to know the inner person. Yet, those that do, discover a friendship that lasts through the years. An Aquarian will go the distance for a loved one to the point of self-sacrifice if necessary. They look for creativity, intellect, and honesty in their friends. When it comes to family, the expectations are no less. While dedicated to a sense of duty to relatives, the Aquarian isn’t one for developing close bonds unless the same qualities they expect in their friendships are there.
Career and Money
Aquarians bring an enthusiasm to the work they do, especially when it involves expression. They have an exceptionally high ability to put their imaginative qualities to the task, and to think outside the box. Careers that allow for concept development or demonstration will suit this sign well. “I know” is the key phrase for the Aquarian. High intellect, combined with a willingness to share their talents, inspires those who work in the same environment. As visionaries, Aquarians love to engage in careers that aim to benefit humankind in the long-run.
When it comes to money, this sign really has a knack for keeping a healthy balance between having the things that they need, and putting money away. Often while out shopping, the shiny, glittery and extravagant will catch their eye even though their homes are generally decorated with great taste. It’s not uncommon to find the Aquarian dressed in brightly colored outfits that dare to turn heads. Most are well attuned to their individual sense of style and aren’t afraid to show it.
Careers that suit the Aquarian include acting, writing, teaching, photography, and piloting. The best environment is one that gives the Aquarian freedom to tackle the task without a lot of strict guidelines. The Aquarian is unconventional, and given the opportunity to show their true talents, they can perform amazing feats.
Love and Sex
Intellectual stimulation is the greatest aphrodisiac for the Aquarian, by far. There’s nothing like a lively chat rich in culture and possibilities for the future to get this sign going. When it comes to love, people best suited are those that are not thrown off by the Aquarian’s frankness. Open, communicative, imaginative, and willing to take risks are all qualities that blend well with this sign’s perspective on life. Honesty and sincerity are essential for anyone seeking a long-term connection to this dynamic personality.
