People born between 21st January and 19th February belong to the Aquarius zodiac sign. It is an air sign. Saturn was the ruling planet of Aquarius until Uranus was discovered. Upon its discovery, Uranus was assigned to this sign. Therefore, Saturn is the ancient ruling planet of Aquarius, while Uranus is the modern one. According to Hindu astrology, Kumbha is equivalent to Aquarius. The word 'Kumbha' means pitcher in Sanskrit. Let us now take a look at the characteristics of individuals belonging to this sun sign.
Characteristics of Aquarius
Interestingly, these individuals are either shy and gentle, or lively and frivolous; either of the two extremes. Although they appear aloof and detached, they are charming, intelligent and interesting individuals. People belonging to the Aquarius sign are characteristic humanitarians. They are selfless and patient, and like to surround themselves with lot of people. It is not unusual to find an Aquarian having a large group of friends and acquaintances. Every single person seems mysterious to them, and solving the mystery of human nature is the favorite pastime of people belonging to this zodiac sign.
Freedom of every kind, including that of action and thoughts, is very precious to the Aquarians. Although they socialize a lot, they value personal space too. Deep inside they are stubborn, judgmental; but never emotional. Talking of emotionality, nearly all Aquarians believe that emotions are the root cause of all human problems, and hence, they are very detached from emotions. This very attitude makes them appear cold and aloof. Aquarians have a curious, objective nature and are drawn to novelty. Being sympathetic and philosophical are also some of notable Aquarius characteristics.
Relationship with Aquarius
Getting into a relationship or being committed doesn't come naturally to Aquarians. However, if you wish to attract this individual, you need to stimulate him / her mentally first. An interesting conversation is one of the keys to the Aquarius heart. Try to have a genuine interest in things that interest your Aquarius partner and be open to new ideas. You have to be mysterious enough to catch the eye of an Aquarian. They will find it very exciting to solve a mystery. Do not express your emotions easily and they will find you almost irresistible. One of the most important thing to remember is that tying down Aquarian individuals or pressing them emotionally will only make them flee to the other end. However, once committed, Aquarians are divinely romantic and exhibit an amorous nature! On the other hand, you should also note that jealousy and possessiveness are not a part of the Aquarian nature and you too should avoid it.
Marriage to an Aquarian will have mixed results. It is fun to live with them as they can talk endlessly and entertain you, but at the same time they can be cold and detached. They also can be disturbingly aloof. Aquarians are naturally charming and attractive and attract a lot of attention. This will be one of the causes of concern for a possessive partner. But, your life will also be full of surprises. As a parent, an Aquarian will encourage his child's imagination, be a patient listener and also teach his child to be independent. There will hardly be any generation gap felt between the parent and the child.
Talking of the Aquarius compatibility, these individuals are most compatible with Libra and Gemini. Librans can tactfully handle the fickle nature of Aquarians. Geminis and Aquarians have a common outlook towards life. This sign is least compatible with Leo and Scorpio. Abraham Lincoln, Lord Byron, Virginia Woolf, Clark Gable, Oprah Winfrey and John Travolta are a few of the famous people with Aquarius sign.
People born under this sign, usually, are suited to the fields where ingenuity and independence can be nurtured. They usually have their own set of rules and do not like being ordered around. Aquarians are very creative and technical wizards. Fields that require human interaction are very suitable for them. An Aquarian will enjoy and succeed being a writer, painter, musician, actor, psychologist or a doctor. As they like to guide and give people advice, they can be excellent counselors.
