It’s the age of Aquarius! The eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarian babes are visionary souls, dedicated to making the world a better place and inspiring others to do the same (they know how to #StartSomewhere). Inventive, resourceful, and curious, people born under this air sign give off an innovative and open-minded energy. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, they’re not afraid to take risks and get a little rebellious, especially if it has the potential to create a better, brighter future.
A strong social conscience and an inquisitive mind come together in this passionate air sign. Aquarians use their charming, community-focused energy to bring people together and rally them around important causes. Obsessed with anything that works towards a greater common good, from cutting edge technology to sexy yet sustainable fashion, many people think of Aquarians as trailblazers, motivated by their desire to better the world and help everyone they can along the way, especially Mother Earth. They go their own way and can’t stand being restricted or bored, which means they often end up leading unconventional lives and pursuing wild dreams.
Aquarius is the sign of friendship and teamwork, but these free spirited babes also value their independence, and refuse to compromise their freedom or autonomy. They are sympathetic and have a lot to give, but they don’t want to be tamed, craving a relationship that gives them the space to roam freely, while embracing their individuality. They empower the people around them to live their most authentic lives - you often feel fired up when you're near Aquarian energy.
Aquarius is an air sign that is symbolized by the water bearer, which explains their intriguing duality: the visionary air element inspires their deeply rooted desire to revolutionize and embrace the winds of change, and the water bearer symbolizes their willingness to shower the world with their thoughts and ideas, and the ever-flowing nature of their minds – they never stop looking for ways to nurture change.
Their altruism and determination to give back draws many people to them, but the fixed quality of the Aquarius sign means they are also quite fixed in their beliefs. Occasionally stubborn to a fault, Aquarius’ unique way of thinking means that they tend to reject opposition, so instead of trying to change their mind, make sure you understand their vision and where they’re coming from - their heart is always in the right place and their perspective can be game changing.
Happy birthday Aquarius – you’re out to cHAHnge the world, and we’re happy to be along for the ride!
