Astrology Signs Descriptions: All About Aquarius

Carol finds astrology fascinating and spends her free time researching and writing about it for her astrology blog.

If you are an Aquarius, that means you were born between January 20–February 18.

If you are an Aquarius, that means you were born between January 20–February 18.

Aquarius: January 20–February 18

If you were born between January 20th and February 18th, your zodiac sign is Aquarius. As an air sign, you are of an intellectual nature. You tend to reason problems out carefully and do a thorough job of researching your answers. You love to communicate your thoughts and ideas to others, and stimulating conversation is one of your favorite activities. You Aquarians are either very practical or totally the opposite. Rules are okay as long as you agree with them, or you may choose to break them.

Social problems in our world are of interest to most of you Aquarius people, and you are always trying to find solutions. Making a better world for people is an Aquarian's fondest dream, and you somehow always have unique ideas for improving humanity. Even with some of your quirky ways you are often leaders in many of your endeavors. Being a follower in life is generally not an option.

You often search out professions in philosophy, science and psychology. Friendships are important to Aquarians and they are often attracted to people from all walks of life. You are never a snob and are always the kind one who protects against bullying. Aquarians are generally fun to be around with their never-ending spirit of adventure.

In love you can be very attentive, but look for an independent partner who has a world he or she enjoys. You love to share what you have and are known for your generosity and that is a big part of your astrology horoscope.

The Three Decans of Each Sign

Each sign has three decans: the first ten days, the second ten days, and the third ten days.

Aquarius is an air sign along with Gemini and Libra.

The first decan of Aquarius is influenced by Aquarius, the second by Gemini, and the last by Libra.

This holds true with the other signs:

  • Fire signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
  • Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
  • Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces

First Decan: January 20–January 30

If you were born during the first ten days of the zodiac sign of Aquarius, you will have very strong Aquarian traits. The ruling planet of Aquarius is Uranus which can influence certain Aquarius people to have very different views about life. You are also very outspoken and never afraid to share what is on your mind. Though you really enjoy being among people and enjoy social activities, you are often happy to be alone and pursue the many interests that you enjoy in life. You love meeting new people who share some of your very different ideas

With your unique style in life, your surroundings reflect your unusual tastes. You love unique and conversation provoking artwork and furniture. And you really don't care what people think about your taste. Sometimes you are well recognized to be different and rather eccentric.. However, you are a kind and likable person.

In a romantic relationship, you look for someone who shares your spirit in life and loves to try new things. It is always a good idea for Aquarius people to have someone good with money as Aquarians enjoy spending money on travel, hobbies and art.

Second Decan: January 31–February 9

This is the second decan of the sign of Aquarius. Those born in these ten days pick up many traits of the Gemini personality. You Aquarians communicate feelings and ideas easily. You have a sense of honesty and openness in your personality that people gravitate towards. Many great fiction writers were born during this ten-day period. The ruling planet of Gemini is Mercury, in mythology he was the messenger which attributes your talking and writing skills. You possess great. Intelligence and quick wit, but common sense needs a little work.

You can display extreme impatience when people do not act and think as quickly as you do. You often want instant results. Your active mind is often going a mile a minute. When you have a project to complete you jump in with great enthusiasm and don't quit until you are finished. In school, you rarely had to study very much to receive good grades. Most things in life come easy to you.

In love you look for beauty, poise and someone who communicates well.

Third Decan: February 10–February 19

If you were born between these ten days, you are part of the last decan of Aquarius. This decan is influenced by Libra and its ruling planet Venus. You are more romantic than the other Aquarians. You are impulsive and loaded with charm. You may decide after meeting someone to ask them to go on a trip the next day. However, you tend to fall in and out of love often until you decide to settle down. People find you attractive and even somewhat mysterious. You have the gift of gab and always know what to say to someone to make them feel good.

Very often you act before you think things out, but generally manage to come out on top. Generosity is second nature to you. If someone admires something you have it is theirs on a moment's notice. Though Aquarius people are rarely sensitive, you are more sensitive than your other fellow Aquarians, being born during the Libra decan of the sign. In love you look often for someone who is quiet and thoughtful. You enjoy being pampered and cared for.

I am an Aquarius with the 3rd decant with Libra traits and it makes a lot of sense to me, its very on point! thanks for researching and writing this!! :)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on June 03, 2013:

I am glad it works...I am always happy to know that people enjoy reading about astrology.

Helena Ricketts from Indiana on June 03, 2013:

I've read a lot about Aquarius but have to say this is very well laid out, thought out and was really surprisingly spot on for my husband and I (we are both Aquarius). I'm going to show this to him when he comes home. :)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 27, 2013:

Thank you Pamela99: Astrology can be pretty amazing. Thanks for stopping by and reading. I appreciate the support.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on February 26, 2013:

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 23, 2013:

I think I make up all the signs. Whenever I read these I always see (even maybe one) traits that fit me too. Fascinating and pinned.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 22, 2013:

Thanks for talking about your friend. It is helpful to me knowing what I am writing has some value in the Astro departnemtn. Thanks for stopping by and being a supportive friend Hubber.

Shining Irish Eyes from Upstate, New York on January 22, 2013:

I can not speak for anyone else but I find your description to be right on the money. I have a great friend in our circle who is always the voice of reason, yet can turn around in the blink of an eye and break any rule when she feels mankind or the like is being unfairly treated. She is always dragging me to some walk or movement for the betterment of mankind (I go kicking and screaming only because I enjoy the banter!).

I think the world of her and find her truly fascinating at times. While she is pointing out to another friend (an makes great sense) the better way to go about something, she will turn around and break the rules immediately!!!!

Another interesting hub.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 22, 2013:

Hi Carol

I am an Aquarium and loved the song, the Age of Aquarius by the Fifth Dimension. Their concern when I was a young girl was the first one I ever went to and when they sang that song I was thrilled.

I am so like my sign and about to celebrate my 65th year on the planet tomorrow.

I enjoyed reading this..of course, I would

Thanks for sharing and here come your Angels :) ps

lmlynde from Nevada on January 20, 2013:

Loved this hub Carol! Always have loved astrology since I was a teeny bobber! I'm in the middle section of Aquarius on Feb 3rd, and I have the more fun with people when they ask "When is your Birthday?" I say the day after Ground Hog's Day and almost every time I get that same eye-wandering look when people are trying to remember when that day is!!!!! Of course I give hints and describe what happens on this day involving a lil' animal seeing his shadow or going back into his hole....then some people remember! I believe a sequel of the Ground Hog Movie with Bill Murray should happen to put this day back into people's memory! Thanks for sharing your love of Astrology with others who do the same love. Voted UP & a pleasure to read.....Take care! Lori

Mary Craig from New York on January 20, 2013:

Suzie from Carson City on January 20, 2013:

Carol....My much-loved and sadly-missed, precious sister, was an absolute genius, funny, loving and loyal woman....Her birthday approaching, it is a day of many emotional twists for me.....I cry and smile, intermittently.....what can I say? It's a day I await eagerly and dread all at once....

Thank you for this peek into the Aquarians of our world. I so appreciate your expertise.

There is one Aquarian, that surely remains forever in my heart....UP+++

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on January 20, 2013:

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 20, 2013:

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 20, 2013:

faith reaper...Glad you stopped by to check out your sign. thanks also for the vote...

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 19, 2013:

I was trying to think if we had an Aquarians in our family and I don't believe we do. Interesting information as always; I hope you are starting to see views with this series. It seems to me that it should be quite popular.

Corrie Lamprecht from Thailand on January 19, 2013:

And here I always though Aquarius is THE water sign? I guess somewhere between Astronomy and certain Astrology a big wide gorge opened up.

Faith Reaper from southern USA on January 19, 2013:

Oh, wow, Carol, I was born on January 29th. This is indeed very interesting. I hope that others would think of me as friendly, but I do care about others and social issues as that is my passion in life - to love others, even the ones who are the hardest in this life to love.

Voted up +++

Hugs and love to you, Faith Reaper
