Aquarius is known for being a humanitarian, an objective observer and a creative idealist, with a wild imagination and a tendency to reject society’s rules and social norms. Most Aquarians have a large group of people in their circle and can get along with almost anyone. At the same time, they need lots of space and can often appear detached, especially when dealing with personal issues.
Aquarians don’t like being boxed into labels and want people around them that appreciate them for the unique snowflake that they are. While their rational mind is to be admired, Aquarians are not the best at verbally expressing what they are feeling and prefer to shut down rather than ask for help.
The energy of certain crystals is especially attuned to specific astrological signs. Working with some of these stones and crystals can help Aquarius on their journey to personal growth and ease stress and anxiety. Here are some of the best crystals for Aquarius zodiac signs.
Characteristics of Aquarius - Strengths and Weaknesses
Date Duration: January 20th - February 18th
Symbol: Water Bearer
Planetary Ruler: Uranus
The Aquarius symbol is the Water Bearer. Despite the link to water both in the symbol and the name - “aqua” - this zodiac sign is actually an Air element sign. The Water Bearer brings the flow of water and life to earth, similar to how an Aquarius loves to share ideas and has dreams of bettering the world.
It will come as no surprise that the ruling planet Uranus, is the planet of originality, innovation and new ideas. Uranus reminds us that it might be time to reassess the old way of doing things and embrace the discomfort and growth that comes with change. While this makes Aquarians open-minded it also makes them come across as absent-minded and disorganized. With so much time spent thinking of the grand plan of their life, minor details and everyday events are easy to push to the side.
As a fixed sign, Aquarius also exhibits the same stubborn qualities as other zodiac signs like Leo, Scorpio and Taurus. Always the dreamer, Aquarius loves to debate and share their ideas. While they are not judgmental, their know-it-all attitude that comes from establishing their beliefs after careful thought can seem intolerant and dismissive of the opinion of others.
