Aquarians are creative thinkers and spend most of their time inside their own heads. They think visually and fantasize about how they can make all of their wildest dreams come true. They are not satisfied with surface level thinking. They like to think outside the box and enjoy coming up with new ways to do things. They want to know what, where, when, why, and how. The only question you’ll hear them asking more than “why” is “why not?” The sky is the limit for an Aquarius and they usually make all of their dreams realities.
Calling an Aquarius eccentric would be an understatement. This sign dances to the beat of their own drum and lives life to the fullest. You’ll never know what to expect from an Aquarius. They are quirky, outgoing, fun, and spontaneous. Strangers become instant friends for the inquisitive Aquarian who finds the mystery intriguing. They are always down to try new restaurants, check out new venues, or listen to new music. You never know who you’ll meet at their parties because none of their friends are ever the same.
Aquarians adhere to a “live and let live” attitude. They possess an extremely open mind and zero tolerance for ignorance. This is not to say they don’t have their own set of values; they certainly do. They understand that how you choose to live your life is none of their concern, just like how they choose to live theirs is none of yours. They won’t argue with you over differing viewpoints unless you’re just plain hateful. They know that ignorant minds are simply fearful minds who need to push past familiar comfort zones. They feel overwhelmed by the issues in the world and want to solve any injustice they come across.
An Aquarius can turn a mundane story into an exciting one. They will pitch their ideas persuasively, but they don’t want you to always agree with them. They respect people who have their own opinions and ways of looking at complex issues. They quickly lose respect for those who follow the crowd and blindly believe everything they hear.
Aquarians are most widely known for their aloof and independent personalities. This goes back to the fact that they always have their heads in the clouds. Those who don’t know them very well may consider them cold or emotionally distant. This could not be further from the truth. Aquarians wear their hearts on their sleeves, but only for those who know them best. Unless you are part of their inner circle, you will never see them cry or show much emotion. If you are part of their inner circle, prepare to be amazed by their dramatic displays of sentimentalism and emotion.
You will never wonder where you stand with an Aquarius because they will honestly tell you. An Aquarius is going to tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. This is exactly why their friends seek them out most for real world advice. They love helping others and enjoy helping people sort through their problems. While they won’t sugarcoat the truth, you’ll always know it’s coming from a place of love.
Aquarians know what they want and aren’t afraid to go after it. They put a lot of thought into their decisions, so once they make them, they do not like to back down. Usually, they are more than willing to compromise if you explain yourself logically and show them that your decision has been carefully considered.
Aquarians aren’t impressed by showy romantic gestures. All of the romantic gestures in the world won’t mean a thing to the Aquarian that isn’t turned on by your mind. Aquarians love a partner who will challenge them mentally by not always agreeing with them or giving in to their demands. The quickest way to drive an Aquarius wild is to tell them exactly what you want and how you want it.
It’s not that they don’t want help, but they dread the thought of having to ask for it. Aquarians love to be seen as self-sufficient individuals who can handle what life throws at them successfully. In relationships, they don’t fear commitment as long as their partner gives them the freedom to express themselves how they choose. The happiest Aquarian is one with a grounded and supportive partner. This balances them out and brings them back down to earth.
Aquarians value loyalty above all else. While they may seem a bit all over the place at times, you can always trust them to have your back. They will be the people who always show up for you no matter how much time has passed or how much distance separates you. Once you are loved by an Aquarius, you will always have a lifelong friend.
