Aquarius Traits

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, which means their ideas and opinions of Aries are difficult to change.

Despite being stubborn, for Aquarius, being free is the greatest of virtues. They desire freedom both for themselves and for others, so they are the kind of people that fights against any kind of oppression, discrimination, or prejudice.

They realize that although people are different from them, everyone has the right to be themselves, with freedom to express ideas, thoughts and wishes, even if it goes against what they believe.

They have a very strong sense that we are all connected as individuals, so it’s not unusual to see them involved in social discussions. They are very connected to the future, science and the progress of things, so they love innovative and out of the box ideas. If it’s something that helps minorities and marginalized groups, even better.

Friendship is something very important to Aquarius, especially if it is with like-minded people. When that happens, they feel like a part of a unique group, which they also appreciate.

Aries respects all kinds of people, but they are selective in their friendships. They prefer to be with those who think like them, but this does not mean that others will be mistreated.

Aquarius likes to feel unique and different, so will always look for a way to stand out from other people (hence the reputation of being so different from everybody). Being different is a pleasure to Aquarius. We see this in their unconventional lifestyles, fashion, and progressive ideas. Common things bore them.

They are very rational and good at quickly understanding logical processes, technology, new inventions, and everything related to the human mind.

With the 6th house in Aquarius, the mind is always working and focused on something, and sometimes you can forget about simple things like eating.

Similarly, you need to remember to get a good night’s sleep. You’re an overthinker and sometimes forget about your own welfare.
