Aquarius Traits and Star Sign Personality

Do you know the traits of an Aquarius? As the zodiac’s eleventh sign, Aquarius personality traits include collaboration, friendship and future-forward thinking. Understanding Aquarius traits can help you get along with this sign in love, work and life.

What are Aquarius traits?

Have you ever met someone who was technology-savvy, rebellious and a little bit eccentric? Chances are, this person was an Aquarius, the sign born between January 20-February 18. Learning the Aquarius star sign personality and Aquarius traits can help you coexist in harmony with this zodiac sign, who craves casual connections, but can sometimes be emotionally detached.

Chief among the traits of an Aquarius is the fierce need for rebellion. An Aquarius has a strong desire for freedom, but they also love to be surrounded by their vast network of friends. They are passionate advocates for their cutting edge ideas, but can sometimes come off as aloof. It takes a lot to hold tech-savvy Aquarius’ attention span—though when they find their obsessions they go in all the way! Aquarius is the sign of the trendsetter and trailblazer. As the zodiac’s eleventh sign, Aries loves creative collaborations and synergistic connections.

What kind of person is Aquarius?

Positive Aquarius astrology traits include communication, originality, open-mindedness, fairness, logical and inviting. They’re not afraid to speak up for what they believe. Aquarius becomes upset when they feel wronged in some way or when a friend or loved one has been hurt or offended. This friendship-focused sign has no tolerance for injustice!

Difficult traits of the Aquarius sign include being guarded, detached, self-destructive, out-of-touch, irrational and even a tad desperate. Aquarius is a tenacious fixed sign and a sociable air sign. But as the eleventh sign of the zodiac symbolized by the Water Bearer, Aquarius can also be a rebel without a cause. Although they talk a good game about their ability to connect with many, MANY people, it is often the secret wish of an Aquarius to have complete and total freedom. Ruled by spontaneous Uranus, an Aquarius can shake things up at times, which is not always well-received by their audience. They can also be extremely generous, and an agent for social change, since the eleventh house also rules humanitarian efforts.

While some traits of the Aquarius sign can make them seem a bit too avant-garde at times, their desire for revolution is inspiring, and their warmth and courage is also endearing, and their cute and quirky demeanor is irresistible.
