Aquarius Horoscope Explained
Aquarius is the Fixed sign of the Air signs. The Water-Bearer of the zodiac is known for their strong sense of duty; they are humanitarians with big hearts and brave souls. As natural leaders, Aquarians are known to be one of the most innovative and energetic of all the zodiac signs. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of change and originality, Aquarians pride themselves on their unconventional outlook on the world.
People often confuse the Aquarian personality as aloof and detached, but they are simply putting all their focus into solving bigger problems and often forget things like birthdays and doctor’s appointments. The strong curiosity characteristic of most Aquarians is well known as the driving force behind their high intelligence. They’re problem-solvers at heart who thrive on change and get a thrill out of shaking things up a bit.
6 of Our Favorite Characters that Share Your Aquarius Horoscope
The protagonist of Gone With The Wind, Scarlett O’Hara displays the Aquarian compulsion to go against the grain. When Southern belle Scarlett pursues a man she isn’t supposed to, she throws aside social conventions. Scarlett actually marries three times in the novel, which is a total taboo for the time. The way she works in unconventional business roles for her time and shows strong leadership during adversity are quintessential marks of an Aquarius. Scarlett O’Hara looks out for the best interests of everyone around her, something an Aquarius does naturally.
Did you know you could have anything in common with Batman’s nemesis and the Joker’s on-again-off-again girlfriend? Although she’s most often playing the villain, Harley Quinn definitely displays Aquarian traits. Harley has such a tough personality that she is confident and charming because she does what she wants – whatever she wants. She uses her toughness to be loyal to her friends (although this character could certainly choose better ones). Her outgoing nature and confidence, as well as her larger-than-life personality, are all classic signs you’re dealing with an Aquarius. Let her, and your Aquarius daily horoscope, inspire you to stand out.
Flynn Rider (a.k.a. Eugene Fitzherbert) from Disney’s Tangled is funny, edgy, and brave like an Aquarius. His outgoing personality makes him lovable, which is one way Aquarians are able to win people over. He is also very independent and will not be told what to do, which reflects how most Aquarians do best as their own boss. Flynn demonstrates classic Aquarian stubbornness, cunning, and the ability to see the world in a completely unique way. The loyalty he shows to Rapunzel also makes it clear that an Aquarius will go to the ends of the Earth to protect the ones they love – even if (or especially if) it means breaking a rule or two.
This character from the TV show Broad City is quirky and unconventional in her sexuality and her lifestyle – which is quite characteristic of an Aquarius. Slightly scatterbrained, Ilana does life her own way. Even with her outside of the box ways, people are enthralled with her because of her passion, her conviction, and her unrelenting quest to answer life’s biggest questions. Just like most Aquarians, Ilana’s free spirit draws all kinds of different people into her life. Caring and yet fiercely independent by nature, Ilana is a hilarious example of a young, modern-day Aquarian.
The longest-running character on Law and Order is such an Aquarius. Olivia Benson is tough and emotional at the same time. Her strong emotions come from her inner rage against the injustices done to innocent people, thus she becomes a voice for them as a detective (and eventually a sergeant and lieutenant). She acts like a parent to everyone that has ever encountered injustice and the bad guys do not want her wrath. She is certainly not a pushover and very independent just like an Aquarius. She will do whatever it takes to keep bad things from happening to innocent people, proving her connection to the Aquarius horoscope.
Aquarians may often be unaware of social norms because they have such strong personalities themselves. The infamous Dwight Schrute of The Office displays the tunnel-vision an Aquarius often deals with. Dwight’s lack of social graces is an extreme example of how an Aquarius can appear to others, as Water-Bearers aren’t much for small talk and social graces. Aquarian abruptness and honesty can often be misconstrued as rudeness if they aren’t considerate of others’ feelings. Still, Dwight gets put in leadership positions because he has an Aquarian knack for being resourceful under pressure. Even though his head seems to be in the clouds, he absolutely cares about those closest to him – something any Aquarius can relate to.
