Aquarius Season runs between January 20th and February 18th, signalling a time to raise our heads from the ‘bleak-mid-winter’ blues and lean into expansive azure skies. We’ve made it through the long, dark nights of Capricorn’s rule, and can now look with bright, fresh optimism at the potential of another year. Similarly, those born within this window are known as positive, original-thinkers, progressive, and quick to do things differently. They’re even described as unusual, strange or quirky, and, having been labelled the ‘odd one out’ at one time or another usually possess a strong principle of inclusivity.
You know you can always count on them
Orchestrators of group outings and whizz kids at social networking, they can be counted on never to leave people behind, rallying the masses together as a team, audience, or connecting on important community initiatives, questioning what’s good for one and for all… Bands work better with a friendly Aquarius on board: The Spice Girls had Baby Emma Bunton. Destiny’s Child? Kelly Rowland, while Blackpink has Rosé.
They are reliable and all-knowing
Loyal and experimental, everything comes together with their input and wise sense of knowing. The Aquarius motto quite literally is “I Know”; this detached air sign boasts a birds eyeview, and a unique perspective on life, which leads to special human awareness and impressive social clout. Oprah is an exemplary Aquarius, unrivalled in her rapport with viewers, unmatched as an interviewer. Her frank questioning style makes her brilliant at getting to the heart of a story –– Aquarius aren’t those to get too emotionally enmeshed but rather use logic, pragmatism and a matter of fact approach.
They will also be your biggest supporter!
Expect a slice of cool realism when dealing with this sign! While not sentimental, they do make the most incredible cheerleaders, and you can absolutely call on an Aquarius to fly the flag for your ideas or projects among peers. They’ll do anything and everything for those they know and those they don’t, the genuine humanitarian of the Zodiac. Take original influencer and socialite Aquarius Paris Hilton, who helped (Libra) Kim Kardashian get her start in celebrity circles, elevating and championing her friend to superstardom. Amal Clooney is a dedicated human rights lawyer, Ashton Kutcher is an activist in tech and online spaces, while Ronaldo chose controversy – and water – over sponsors, encouraging people to remember health and wellbeing rather than reaching for a can of Coke.
Accepting and empowering you to be yourself
Harry Styles goes against the grain challenging traditional fashion norms. This is another benefit of teaming up with an Aquarius: you’re never expected to adhere to the status quo. The most popular cast member of TV show Friends – ’90s cool-girl, Jennifer Anniston – is an Aquarius, and has always pushed back at comments on her child-free lifestyle. “I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done and if they’re not checked then I’ve failed” she says of the need to have kids.
A little stubborn and strong-headed
It’s worth remembering however, these people do have their own rationale and reasoning, which is hard to turn. Strong in their attitude, they’ll often exhibit a stubborn, non-negotiable side! Once they’ve arrived at a ‘scientific conclusion’, their mind will be made up. Don’t let a difference in opinion stop you being in league though, this sign comes through for their many allies. Aquarius Carole King sang it best; “All you have to do is call, and I’ll be there yes I will – you’ve got a friend”.
