Aquarius Free Horoscope
The Personality Traits of an Aquarius
An Aquarius will always look to build their own roots, allowing them to live independently and securely. They truly believe in the idea of freedom, and they will not be willing to conform to any norms if they feel that it is an impingement upon their freedoms.
This can make Aquarius highly unpredictable and difficult to pin down. They will always have a plan, and normally a few backup plans as well. One thing they cannot stand is boredom, and will always be looking for new projects to engage with and keep them occupied.
At the same time, Aquarius is a firm believer in the goodness of humanity and they will seek to do all they can to help others. While fiercely independent, they seek the company of others and they are always looking to make new friends. Simultaneously, they will be looking to advance the causes of freedom and justice for all.
Aquarius do not respond well to being controlled or caged. They need the freedom to move around and conduct their life as they wish. When they can’t, they can start to be cold and distant, but this is usually a defence mechanism, when they feel under threat. In fact, once an Aquarius trusts someone, they become extremely caring and gentle.
An Aquarius does not shy away from attention, they are happy to embrace what makes them unique, and this can make them seem unconventional to others, where in fact, it is more of a form of honesty. Rather than following trends, they will dress and express themselves as they see fit, even if this means standing out in a crowd.
That said, they work very well in teams and are adept at making sure everyone feels they are being treated fairly. They are excellent at interpreting the environment they find themselves in and the needs of society as a whole. As a result, they often find themselves drawn to causes and spend significant time campaigning for what they see as justice.
However, Aquarius are very easy going people and they will not spend time lecturing others about their beliefs. Rather, they will go with the flow and always seek the chance to try something new. They are not fussy and can easily overlook the irrelevant, preferring to forgive, forget and then move on with life to the next exciting thing.
In general, Aquarians are always looking to the future and how they can improve it. As an Air sign they are progressive, willing to adapt to new ideas, and not in the least bit scared of change or the unexpected. Furthermore, they are particularly adept at adapting to new technologies and finding ways to improve upon existing systems.
This is partly because Aquarians are very independent thinkers. They do not worry too much about what others think of them, and they have the confidence to follow their own thought processes without outside influence. This can be a weakness, as they may be too quick to dismiss the advice of others, but it can also lead to exciting progress and truly original ideas.
However, this does not make an Aquarius arrogant. Normally they are very humble people. They are not looking for others to feed their egos and do not need a huge amount of praise in order to feel pleased with what they have achieved. Rather, they are down to earth and very level headed, while still being excited by anything that seems new.
Aquarius is also a sign of friendship and many Aquarians simply have no limits in regards to what they will do for their friends. However, while Aquarians will treat all people as their friend, they rarely single anyone out as a true best friend. Rather, they will make time for all and will do their best to make all their friends feel equally valued.
The problem with this is that it can make Aquarians a little bit unreliable. They are always moving and with Uranus as the ruling planet, which represents change, Aquarians are always moving on, changing plans, and are generally, very hard to tie down.
Aquarians are very good at analysing situations logically and will rarely allow their emotions to affect their decision-making. This can make them seem a little bit cold or emotionless, whereas in fact, it just means that they try to approach the world rationally. Furthermore, an Aquarius does not open up easily; while they do feel things strongly, they are very selective about who they will reveal their emotions to, to the extent that there is normally a side to them that even their partners will never get to see.
Because of this, Aquarians can often feel as if those around them misunderstand them. They come across as unique individuals and their reluctance to discuss emotions can result in people judging them negatively. Furthermore, as mentioned, Aquarians do not react well to control; they enjoy the process of breaking rules and are happy to challenge authority. This can lead them to act out, which can be problematic for those around them.
It is important that Aquarians remain aware of this tendency. They need to take the time to think through how their actions may affect others, otherwise they may cause unintended offence or difficulties.
As discussed, water brings life and can be destructive and similarly, being an Aquarius is about finding a balance between the positive and negative aspects of a freedom loving and brave personality.
How Aquarius Treat Love and Relationships
When it comes to matters of the heart, an Aquarius is just as independent and free going as with everything else. They are not too interested others’ ideas of what should be done, rather they will have their own set of rules and ethics, and they will take them incredibly seriously.
An Aquarius is likely to find the idea of a serious relationship fairly daunting. They enjoy flirting and even long-term casual relationships; however, even when they have strong feelings for someone, the idea of a real commitment can cause them to feel trapped and worried about the future. An Aquarius does not want to be dependent on any one else and they also do not like the feeling of others relying on them. Therefore, trying to find a balance in a relationship is often a true challenge for an Aquarius.
In regards to the physical, an Aquarius will be passionate, honest, and open to exploring new things. There is a reason that the age of free love era was nicknamed “The Age of Aquarius”, and Aquarians view sex as something to be thoroughly enjoyed, both inside and outside of relationships.
Once in a relationship, an Aquarius will truly care about their partner, but they also believe that true love is best expressed by not asking the other to change in any way. While this may sound selfish, it is better understood as pragmatism and a realistic outlook on how the relationship can last.
It is not unusual for Aquarians to be drawn towards Earth signs, despite this being the element that they should perhaps avoid. The Earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo), speaks to the part of an Aquarius that struggles between the desire to settle and the desire to explore new things. An Earth sign will represent stability, a place to always return to, and while this is against the nature of an Aquarius, it can appear to be a very attractive prospect.
If an Aquarius finds him or herself in a relationship with an Earth sign then they will have to recognise that the Earth sign cannot be changed. Similarly, the Earth sign will have to respect that an Aquarius needs space and independence. As long as the two of them communicate properly, there is a chance that it can work. Both signs will respect honestly and open conversations are the key to success. They will need to build the trust required to open up with one another and learn to allow themselves to be vulnerable.
A more appropriate sign may be a Gemini. Both signs are intelligent, fun loving, and occasionally viewed as strange by other people. The pair will be able to connect well physically and also recognise each other’s need for space and independence. There is also no reason why an Aquarius shouldn’t have a relationship with a fellow Aquarius. They will understand each other, respect the need for personal space and independence, and instinctively know that it will take time to build love and trust. Alternatively, a Sagittarius may be just what an Aquarius needs. Both enjoy adventures, they are independent, and they are very sure of what they want. The two signs can complement each other and bring out the best in one another.
Aquarius’ Approach to Career and Money
Aquarians are very good at remaining calm and focused in all situations. They feel as if they are in control of their lives and this allows them to be very effective at work. They have excellent instincts and they will be able to deconstruct how a project should proceed very effectively. However, while they will understand what needs to be done, they may struggle to make others see it their way, as they are known for their independent thought processes, which can be a bit incomprehensible to others.
In regards to the structure of their work, an Aquarius is normally happy to go with the flow. However, sometimes they may wish to work all night while at other times they may desire the routine of nine to five. As a result, they can be very good remote workers or independent workers, as this gives them the flexibility they need.
In an office environment, an Aquarius will be popular and not struggle with inner office relationships. While they may not like the rules governing an office, they will know how to follow them. They realise that being easy to get along with at work makes it more pleasant for everyone and it is important to them that they have an enjoyable working life.
It is not unusual to hear an Aquarius claim that money does not matter; however, this is usually because they have a talent for making it. Aquarians view money as a tool that allows them to live the lifestyle that they crave. They do not view it as a power symbol and will not be interested in accumulating money for money’s sake.
As a socially conscious person, an Aquarius recognises that money can be used for good and bad, and they will be aware of how their money affects the rest of the world. They are likely to be interested in ethical companies and investment, and may have little patience for those who are only concerned with the numbers on their pay check.
At the same time, thanks to their original outlook on life, an Aquarius can often spot trends that others can’t see, which may make them very good investors. As a result, an Aquarius will usually be financially stable.
Overall, an Aquarius does not put too much importance on money and they would rather spend their time investing in their relationships.
How Aquarius Responds to Friends and Family
Aquarians are born communicators, but they struggle with closeness as it makes them feel vulnerable, and this is true in regards to both friends and family. However, they will do anything for their loved ones, even if it involves self-sacrifice.
Despite this reticence, an Aquarius is a social person and they truly enjoy getting to know others and hearing their stories. They love finding ways of connecting with other people and thanks to their innate self-confidence, they will never feel out of place, even when surrounded by strangers.
Aquarians are good listeners and know how to get others to open up. They are good at helping others feel relaxed and it is not unusual for people to find themselves opening up more to an Aquarius than to anyone else. However, this is rarely reciprocal; Aquarians are very shy people and it is unlikely that they are being fully open with anyone. As a result, an Aquarius is likely to have a large social of friends, but very few people they consider to be close friends.
Furthermore, once let down by a friend, an Aquarius finds it very hard to forgive and move on. If trust is broken then it may not be possible to rebuild. An Aquarian will instinctively see the best in other people, but they will be frustrated by others’ inability to see the qualities in themselves. Therefore, they may feel as if they always have to be the mentor for others, and may be desperate to find someone who can play that role for them.
However, there is no doubt that Aquarians make fantastic friends. They are fun loving people who will rarely say no to anything and truly know how to be the life and soul of a party. They also have a unique outlook on the world and are good at connecting seemingly random things, which can lead to some truly surprising recommendations. Most importantly, an Aquarius is excellent at pushing and motivating their friends. They will be there to help others meet deadlines and overcome difficult tasks that lie ahead. They are able to judge what a person needs to feel happy and they will go out of their way to supply it.
It can take a bit of time to form a close friendship with an Aquarius, but the friendship is sure to bring with it many rewards that make the effort more than worth it.
With their unique way of looking at the world, out the box thinking, and independent nature, it is no surprise that there are many famous Aquarians in the world. Here you can read about some of them and just what it is that makes them an Aquarius.
Born 28 January 1958, the American comedian and television host Ellen DeGeneres is a well-known Aquarius. While she is best known for her television daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she is also a typical Aquarian with a passion for humanitarian work and philanthropy. She is an advocate for LGBTQ rights and animal rights, and is the driving force between a number of charities and outreach organisations. Furthermore, she has also won the highest American civilian award possible, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Millie Bobby Brown
Born 19 February 2004, even at a young age this actress is already a clear Aquarius. She has a strong sense of social justice and tries her best to use her platform to make the world a better place. She was the youngest-ever Goodwill Ambassador appointed by UNICEF, and she uses the role to spread awareness about issues faced by youth of today and to help advance the cause of children’s rights.
Born 16 February 1951, the bad boy of tennis has shown himself to be a true Aquarian on more than one occasion. He is renowned for his temper, both on and off the court, and has a long history of being confrontational with umpires, officials and his opponents. McEnroe has made headlines numerous times after losing his temper, and there is no doubt that he has the strong and outspoken personality so typical of Aquarius, and the desire to fight for what he believes in.
Born 10 February 1974, the actress Elizabeth Banks is well known for her progressive view of the world. She is a passionate advocate for women’s rights and the women’s choice of autonomy over their own bodies. Furthermore, since moving into directing, she has used the position to advance the cause of equal pay for woman and has inserted many feminist themes into her projects. In other words, she has a clear sense of what is right and wrong, and dedicates her time to fighting for justice, just as one would expect from an Aquarius.
Born 29 January 1954, Oprah Winfrey truly embodies everything that it means to be an Aquarius. She is well known for being an excellent listener and has the ability to get almost anyone to open up to her, as demonstrated numerous times on her talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show. The same trait was visible in her more recent project Super Soul Sunday. Watching her at work, it is clear that Oprah views her guests without prejudice, and she exhibits genuine sympathy for their problems, just as an Aquarius would. Furthermore, she has many philanthropic endeavours, which is another strong sign of her Aquarius nature.
Born 19 February 1954, the actor John Travolta has fans across the world. He has demonstrated himself to be infinitely intuitive, capable of very original thinking (which no doubt contributes to his talent), and under an appearance of coldness, he is a compassionate person. Following the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Travolta flew his Boeing 707 full of supplies, doctors and volunteers to the disaster area to aid with relief efforts, a truly Aquarian act.
