All about Aquarius
The eleventh of the 12 Zodiac Signs, Aquarius begins its cycle mid-winter every year. As a member of the eleventh house, Aquarius natives are known for their team work, expertise with technology, and friendship. Naturally popular, Aquarius natives thrive off the energy of other people and love to tell jokes in social settings.
On their own, this sign is characterized by being original and authentic. You’ll do things in your own unique way and won’t let others distract you from that.
In social settings, Aquarius natives easily make friends and have casual connections everywhere they go. Just as they easily make friends, sometimes they lose them. They can be a bit careless about the inner emotions of others but broader issues like social justice, animal cruelty, or the dangers facing the environment can move you to tears.

Aquarius Element: Air
Ruled by the Air element, Aquarius energy is known for constantly shifting and exploring new areas. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are all ruled by the Air element. And as the third and final sign, Aquarius takes the playful gusts of Gemini and Libra’s social butterfly whirlwind and transforms it to a gale force wind dedicated to exploring the unknown for a better future.
The visionaries of the Zodiac, Aquarius energy is all about those far out ideas – the ones that seem impossible at first glance but make you think about the possibilities nevertheless.
Aquarius Ruling Planet: Uranus
Known as the planet of originality, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus with Saturn as a minor Ruler. Uranus is the only planet in the solar system that spins on it’s side symbolizing the differences between Aquarius natives and other signs of the Zodiac. Known for being a visionary, Uranus is ruled by unpredictable energy, rebellion, and emotional detachment. Aquarius energy is all about thinking of the new ideas and how to better the world today.
Saturn is known as “Structured Saturn” and is characterized by Type A personalities who thrive on organization and to-do lists. When combined with the originality of Uranus, this minor ruler helps ground Aquarius energy and allows them to bring their far out ideas into reality.
