Aquarians are known for their ability to think for themselves. They are not crowd followers and have a tendency to rebel against the status quo. These folk can often seem confusing because they are liberators and futuristic thinkers but often find themselves close-minded to their very fixed ideas of how society should be.
Aquarians have genius minds and can very well have big ideas since it’s an Aquarius who’s likely to start a revolution. They tend to be creative scientists who will construct the framework of massive change but will delegate the foot work to others. It’s not that Aquarius is a lazy sign, they just need more time to think so they can create more ideas! They’re the brains of the operation!
Others see Aquarians as friendly and fun people, though sometimes in their close relationships they can let their head over-rule their heart and come across as a bit cold and detached. Aquarians will always appreciate others’ thoughtfulness as it’s something they try very hard to be themselves. They’re unique and interesting to talk to and almost always have a cause that they are striving to work for. Aquarians are very understanding people as long as you don’t question the opinions that they cling to so dearly. Despite their eccentric and progressive attitude, Aquarians can often feel shy and insecure deep down, because they ultimately care about whether you like them or not, but they don’t want you to know that. They want to be unique but they also want to be accepted for their uniqueness.
Celebrity Aquarians and their compatibility!
Jennifer Aniston is a favourite of many, and her personality seems to come across as the friendly and likeable Aquarius! Her most notorious relationship was her marriage (and divorce) to Brad Pitt which still to this day seems to ignite headlines in gossip media! Looking at these two in compatibility, there are definitely aspects that favour a romantic connection like their compatible sun signs, and the conjunction of Brad’s sun to Jennifer’s moon. When a conjunction between the sun and moon occurs, it’s almost always an indicator of high compatibility especially the man’s sun aspecting and the woman’s moon. This is a harmonious merging of the masculine and feminine energies in their interactions. Despite the favourable placements between their charts, there are some troublesome aspects between their Saturns that indicate possible limitations of Brad’s emotional security and Jennifer’s motives.
Justin is an interesting example of an Aquarian sun. His North Node of destiny is in the opposing sign of Leo, indicating that in this life he is meant to learn to break away from what better serves a group and to shine as an individual (sounds familiar being that he left a boyfriend to pursue a solo career and found great success!) His marriage to Jessica Biel (who is a Pisces sun) has many positive aspects, especially ones tied to past life connections. When someone’s south node is connected by another person’s planets in their chart, it can feel like an instant bond and familiarity and many astrologers attribute this to having experienced other lives together.
Ashton is a good example of a lot of Aquarian energy. His Sun, Moon, Venus AND Mercury all sit in this sign and what is interesting is that his wife Mila Kunis is a Leo sun which is opposite of Aquarius. It’s likely that the two find each other fascinating because of their differences but their egos may have a difficult time working together. Both of their Mars are conjunct in Cancer (the mother and nurturer of the zodiac) which implies that both are on the same page about having children but Mila’s Scorpio moon may make her emotional nature difficult for Ashton to process as times as Aquarians tend to not be as emotional in nature.
