…And with a new year, comes a brand new solar season!

The Sun has now entered the water bearer sign of Aquarius, so to our Aquarian friends: the next 30 days belong to you.

If you have a birthday between January 2 – February 18 … then happy birthday!


Just like the other air signs in the Zodiac: Gemini and Libra, Aquarius traits include being sociable, positive and happy conversationalists!

But these people take it a step further: they’re visionary, intellectual, progressive and always have a new idea or, a new suggestion in mind: something to try that has never been tried before…

These people are forward thinkers. They see the potential and the possibility. Friendship with them is an exciting ride, as they’re rarely held back by social constructs or cultural expectations. With Uranus break-away as their ruling planet, could it be any other way?!



Yet these rebel traits mean they may not see eye to eye with everyone they meet. And their air-sign head-in-the-sky vibe means this sign can come across as a little vacant or distracted at times… and this can give them a reputation for being dismissive or cold. But there are SO many things to love about this Zodiac sign!

So in honor of you, our Aquarian birthday beaus, here are 10 of the reasons (we know) that friendship with one of the most precious you can get!

1. They’re the Zodiac’s Rebels – Aquarius will change the world!

Ruled by Uranus, this Zodiac sign just can’t play by the rules!

It’s not that they go around with the intention of anarchy – it’s just that Aquarius sees NO problem with trying out new ways of doing things.

Even if it means doing the opposite to what most of their friends are doing.

But here’s the thing – it’s the rebels who will change the world. These freedom fighters are the ones questioning the status quo, and when the status quo isn’t working anymore, well, there’s no point in going along with it anymore, right, Aquarius?!

2. They’ll keep you guessing!

Of all the friends you have, it’s the Aquarius-born one who will keep you entertained! Not because they’re showmen (or women) like Leo. They don’t seek out attention or glory. And not quite like your Aries friend, who’s determined to beat you at everything…

It’s because you can guarantee that the person with this Astrology is the one to do something unexpected or juuust a little out of the ordinary. Usually when you’re in need of a little something to pick you up!

Aquarius is the wild card.

A friendship with the Aquarius sign will always keep you guessing about what they’re going to do next…

3. They’re Social Justice/Earth/Eco Warriors

It’s a natural Aquarius trait to fight for what’s right.

Whether it’s disadvantaged kids, the rights of indigenous people, or Mother Earth herself, the good fight will be led by people with Aquarius in their Horoscopes.

It’s an Aquarius trait to know right from wrong on a deep, deep level. And like fellow air sign Libra, this Astrology has justice at its core.

4. They’re Super Imaginative

Maybe it’s their future-forward thinking minds. Maybe it’s that element of air showing up again. Or it could be their fixed modality (like Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio) which allows them to stay in the present moment and indulge in a thought, an idea or a dream… Aquarius knows how to imagine.

They can imagine stories, songs, futures, possibilities. This sign of the Zodiac will never get bogged down or overwhelmed in the here and now, because they can always imagine that what’s next will be incredible!

5. They’re Great Communicators

Connecting effectively with other people is a fundamental trait for all the air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius). Each of these signs does it in slightly different ways (Gemini are generally chatty, connective, and sociable, Libra loves one-to-one, whilst Aquarius is generally great with groups).

The fact is, they have the traits, and they have the skills. So if you need someone to spread your message far and wide, get an Aquarius to do it.

6. They’re Truth-Seekers

Not quite in a Sagittarius aim that-arrow-into-the-heart-of-the-matter kind of way. This is more of a shake-em-loose-til-there’s-nothing-left-but-the-truth kind of way.

Again, with Uranus as their planet of rulership, there’s no other way for this Zodiac sign to be! These people have a real knack for breaking down constructs, and dissolving blocks until what remains is the only thing we can all rely on is the truth.

7. They have a Wicked Sense of Humour

Your Aquarius friend has dry, dry sarcasm. It’s cutting and on point and absolutely hilarious.

8. Choose their Best Friends very, very carefully

Because of Aquarius’ mass appeal (yes, despite – or because of – your weirdness, Aquarius, other people love you!) the Water bearers tend not to get up close and vulnerable with very many people.

When an Aquarius does open up, it becomes clear that emotional intimacy isn’t something that comes naturally to them (as it does for, say your Cancer friend, or your Pisces friend). They’re much happier keeping a little emotional distance and even talking to groups, instead of 1-1.

So when they DO choose you for a friend, and dive into relationship with you, you know you’ve really been chosen!

9. They Give great advice!

Aquarius has this unique mix of being totally independent and having a birds-eye view of the collective.

They’re free-thinkers, not afraid to do things differently and step outside of the herd. YET, everything they do, they do for the greater good. Their choices benefit us all.

So these two duel aspects (Yep, Aquarius really should be a duel sign, like Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces!) mean they’re in a position to give great advice. They can draw on their experiences as an individual, and look to the collective experience (and the collective potential) too.

10. They’re SO Ahead of the Curve!

Yes, there’s no denying it, Aquarius is at the cutting edge of what’s cool. So much so, that the perfect word we use to describe them here will probably have lost its edge by the time you’re reading it!

They’re individuals.

They rarely follow fashion or trends. They set the trends, just by being themselves. And we absolutely adore them (and envy them, and wish we could all be a little more Aquarian too!)
