1. The best of both worlds

A bag of contradictions

Amongst the other zodiac signs, Aquarius is slightly unique in that it’s a sign with two possible personalities and characteristics. These folks tend to be rather quiet and introverted or energetic and eccentric – two ends of the spectrum. Both ‘types’ of Aquarians, however, are deep-thinkers and progressive people, it’s only their sociability which greatly differs.

2. Critical values

They are very critical

Creativity, intellect and honesty are all things that these people appreciate and look for in other people, as they are some of the values that they try to uphold in their own lives. There needs to be a high degree of mutual respect and natural chemistry for an Aquarian to want to make a new friendship. Any hint of entitlement or ego won’t get you far with them because this is a critical zodiac sign!

3) Creative thinker

This sign is hugely creative

As naturally progressive and humanitarian people, they often spend much of their time mulling over theories and ideas – usually with the goal of solving a larger societal problem. People born under this sign are not afraid to think outside the box to find a solution, so they’re best suited to jobs without strict restrictions as allows them to use intellect.

4. Unpredictable Uranus

Uranus is their ruling planet

Uranus is a planet known for bringing sudden change and surprises, which explains why this zodiac possesses two noteworthy personalities rather than the standard one. It is the influence of this planet that gives them their pioneering power, with disruption and unpredictability being associated to this rising star.

5. Free-thinkers

They have amazing minds

As one of the most independent zodiac signs in every sense of the word, born people under this sign are free-thinkers who need to make their own decision on issues. Accepting facts without questioning them just feels alien to them. So, they approach things with an open mindset and never judge a book by its cover.

6. Too pensive

They are deep thinkers

Perhaps one of the sign's most notable flaws actually comes from their love of knowledge. They have a tendency to massively overthink things, as they’re always looking for the optimum solution, so the amount of possibilities can sometimes lead to inertia and anxiety instead. This issue is not exclusive to deeper philosophical questions, the simplest of tasks can be made into a huge internal debate.

7. Dry humorists

Their sense of humor is unique

People of this sign are very direct and intelligent, so it’s hard to exactly know when they’re joking when you first meet them. Their humor may be an acquired taste for some, but those that get their dry, sarcastic comedy are usually left in stitches. Being one of the most sarcastic zodiac signs, their dry nature is so ingrained in them that they are often being funny unknowingly. 

8. Emotionally closed?

They can be hard to read

A common misconception about this zodiac is that they are emotionally-closed or stunted. While there is truth in the fact they aren’t as expressive as other signs and that they are capable of suppressing them momentarily, they still eventually have to face up and understand their emotions like everyone else. When you have big plans and ideas, sentiments can sometimes hold you back or cloud your vision!

9. A ticking time bomb

They are often emotionally confused

With that being said, continually suppressing emotion is unhealthy, as these feelings will eventually manifest themselves in some shape or form. It seems that such suppression can act as a burden on them after a while, as this emotion shows itself in the very occasional anger fit. It’s rare, but when someone pushes them too far, all the pent-up emotions explode quite spectacularly.

10. Quality over quantity

They take a while to open up

Quality over quantity seems to be the policy for Aquarius when it comes to friends in their life. While they will of course have many friends, they’ll have a handful of friends in their inner circle who understand them and allow them to drop their guard. As mentioned, they sometimes have difficulty allowing people, but when that deep connection is made, nothing will break it.

11. Quick learners

They are very intelligent

These folks approach life knowing that there are lessons to learn at every stage and turn in your life. This introspective attitude makes them a sign that is particularly adept at learning from their previous mistakes. If they ever leave open an opportunity to take advantage of them or their kindness, that will definitely be the last time it happens.

12. Forever students

These natives love learning

Aquarius will never stop learning more about the world, a task made easier by the fact they have a knack for understanding and picking up novel ideas extremely quickly. There’s never a point where they feel like they know enough to stop learning. As air signs are gifted regarding communication, people and books tend to be their most useful resources.

13. Agony aunties

This sign gives great advice

With all this knowledge that they’ve amassed through self-education and independent thought, they make great friends to go to when you need to have an honest chat. They probably won’t tell you what you want to hear, but will rather give you the advice you needed to hear.

14. Brains over brawn

They love debating

When looking for a long-term partner, mental stimulation is the aphrodisiac of choice. As a member of the air signs, communication and the exchange of ideas are things which excite them. Honesty and directness are appreciated, these people want to get to the heart of the conversation without the small talk. 

15. Romatically compatible with...

Gemini and Libra are their best matches 

The other air signs Gemini and Libra are the two best suited zodiac personalities. Not quite as well-matched but still highly compatible, the fire signs Aries and Sagittarius also go well with them. Find out more about Aquarius compatibility here.
