WATCH: 7 Chill Yoga Poses to Ease Anxiety...
Of course, there’s a lot more to Aquarius zodiac signs than that. And, naturally, there are plenty of other astrological factors that make you who you are other than your Sun sign. There’s your natal and progressed charts, your moon sign, and your Saturn return, among other happenings in the zodiac. Still, belonging to the Aquarius sisterhood says a lot about you (don't worry, it's all good things).
Aquarius season runs from January 20 through February 18, making it prime time to be a water bearer (woo woo!). Sure, you probably have some sense of what it means to be an Aquarius, based on reading your horoscope and, ya know, living your life, but there’s some basic intel about the sign's characteristics every member of the Aquarius squad should know.
These are the biggest signs you’re an Aquarius, plus how it can impact your overall life, according to certified astrologer Donna Page.
1. You’re a total trendsetter.
You’ve got your own ~thing~ going on, and you tend to jump on the Next Big Thing before it's, well, the Next Big Thing. That floating eyeliner look everyone is into right now? Please. You’ve been rocking it for ages.
2. But you don’t really care what other people think.
You’ve been doing you since the day you were born (HBD, btw!), and that's the way you're going to stay, TYVM. You feel more free than other signs to do whatever you want, whether that’s getting a new tattoo on a whim or grabbing ice cream for breakfast. Someone doesn't get it? That's their problem.
3. You’re fiercely independent.
In a relationship? That’s cool. But it’s crucial your partner understands that, while you love 'em and all, you still need to do your own thing—whether that means "me" time at home or going to a movie solo. (I mean, it's not like they wanted to see it, anyway.) Anyone who can’t jive with that definitely won’t last.
4. You'd do anything for your friends.
At your core, knowing you can rely on your buds come hell or high water—and vice versa—is essential. You’ve got several ride or dies and, if anyone tries to come between that squad... let's just say it won't be pretty.
5. You’re a humanitarian at heart.
There’s a lot of sh*t happening in the world, and you’re definitely not okay with it. You know, deep down, that it’s possible to achieve lofty goals like creating world peace, reversing climate change, and bringing the British royal family back together—it just takes some effort.
