A Brief Introduction

Aquarius is the 11th sign in the zodiac with the symbol of a Water Bearer (man emptying/carrying a water pot). It is an Air sign with Saturn as the lord. Rahu also has some influence on this sign. The symbol denotes the generosity and kindness of fresh water since it nurtures mankind on the planet Earth, and hence this sign reflects humanity in the true sense.

As per Jyotish, this sign represents money, materialism, discovery, invention, adventure, and visionaries. The persons under this sign tend to be intelligent, independent-minded, modern, good-humoured, cheerful, and exude social charisma. These qualities make it easy for them to connect with people similar to them, and they have a big heart and a helpful nature, and hence are always willing to help those in need.

On the flip side, they tend to be secretive but their thoughts are easily and quickly reflected on their face. Their perspective of life is divided into two parts – their own and the lives of others. They are immensely protective of their freedom, and are highly emotional and sensitive about things that happen in their life – for example, they always remember betrayal and cheating in love.

However, with others, it is usually an out-of-sight mind scenario. While they may appear as though they are listening attentively to another person, however, they are not interested or focusing on what is being said.

Physical Appearance

Aquarians usually have androgynous (combination of masculine and feminine characteristics into an ambiguous form) features. They are characterized by lucent and glowing skin and a bubbly personality. Their head appears large and out of proportion to their body, while their facial features seem pushed in from the edges. Their nose is usually small, their eyelids seem to be blinking inwards, and their jaw is usually square-shaped with dimples. These are some unique physical characteristics of persons born under this sign.

In addition, the persons born under this sign usually have thick and coarse hair, with even the women wearing their hair short and men also keeping their hair shorter than others. They are usually thin and tall but only when they ensure the right amount of physical activity, exercise, and a balanced diet. They do get enough physical activity given their highly restless and fidgety nature, which in turn does not allow them to become obese.


This sign signifies independence, spontaneity, intelligence, rebellion, novel, creativity, and an unconventional mindset. At times they can be highly emotional, while at other times they seem distant and emotionally unavailable, which makes it hard for people to understand them. Their restless nature makes them clumsy and with jerky movements, because they find it hard to sit in one place for too long.

Such persons will always need something to do such as reading a magazine or drumming and twitching their fingers or toes. This restlessness is because they have a highly unique and productive mindset, which enables them to undertake and complete tasks in their own creative and unique way. The people born under this sign are extremely intelligent and people around them are amazed by their originality.

Their enthusiasm and spirit of getting things done are quite unstoppable, but they need space and independence to do the job well. Given this trait, they find it hard to be compatible with people who are not similar to them and refuse to listen to their viewpoints, which others view as extreme and out of control. These contradicting viewpoints often make them angry, agitated, confused, sad and depressed all at once.


The people under this sign build mental connections – they seek out people with whom they can have an intellectual and intense discussion. It is only after several long and engaging conversations, do they see a person as a potential partner. They make every effort to please the person, even if they believe they will fail. For these people, it is important to first build a true friendship before they explore a romantic liaison.

As mentioned, they cannot be romantic or intensely passionate with a person with whom they have no mental connection. These people value their individuality but are also equally respectful of the individuality of those around them. Therefore, a partner to these people would never feel controlled or dominated and their way of showing their love and respect is by giving their partner space.

As friends, they make great social companions, since they are quite particular about maintaining friendships.

On the negative side, while people under this sign would exude a lot of mental energy, they sometimes are unable to bond physically and emotionally, and this becomes amply apparent to their partner.

These people must avoid relationships with people who want and expect a deep and emotional connection with their partner, as well as people who need constant validation from their partner. Their commitment phobia makes them feel suffocated if they believe that their partner is constantly watching them or keeping tabs on them.


The people under this sign are prone to hypertension, heart ailments, and varicose veins. They can suffer from allergies, sudden illnesses, accidents, and cramps. They are also susceptible to nervous disorders, and due to their fragile bones, they are also prone to backbone issues. Anxiety seriously affects their health both physically and mentally, and hence these people need to remain cautious, calm, and relaxed.


Given their intuition and focus, they do well in occupations such as astrology, tarot card reading, and other such fields. They also do well in the stock market. Given their intellect and ability to make informed decisions, these people are natural problem solvers and can come up with unique ideas and learning.

These qualities make them good as judges, advocates, mediators, journalists, scientists, and professors. They also succeed as politicians, law enforcement personnel, lobbyists, and social workers given their energy and ability to ensure that they do whatever it takes for a cause about which they are passionate.

Subhash Chandra Bose is a gleaming example of this sign (Born on 23 January). He was relentless as a freedom fighter and was part of India’s struggle to rid us of British rule.


The Aquarius sign includes half of the Dhanishta Nakshatra, the entire Shatabhisha Nakshatra and two-thirds of the Purva Bhadra Nakshatra.

Important Characteristic Traits

Apart from their strong desire for independence, these people fall under a sign that is most humane as compared to any other sign. They are sympathetic and kind-hearted, and enjoy serving the community and genuinely care for those who need them. You could describe these persons as the good Samaritans of society. They are also rather broad-minded, creative, frank, upfront, and listen to their gut. They do not judge people by their outward appearance.

On the negative side, they can be rather stubborn and rigid. When they are fixated on something, they will go to any lengths to get it, and there is very little that can be done to change their mind once they are set on something. They hold their opinions and views stubbornly, rarely changing them based on what others may have to say. Their behaviour is rather unpredictable and erratic, and hence people find it hard to understand the ‘real’ person.
