What to Know About the Aquarius Sign
People born between January 20 and February 18 fall under the seven-star Aquarius constellation. The symbol of the Water Bearer indicates abundance, positivity, and rejuvenation. The word “Aquarius” is Latin for “cup-carrier” or “water-carrier” and symbolizes both water and its life-giving properties.
The Greek myth surrounding Aquarius starts with Ganymede, a young boy. Zeus kidnapped the boy and deigned him the cup-carrier for the Olympian gods. Of course, part of Zeus’ motivation was Ganymede’s beauty, even as a young boy tending his flock in the fields.
Like Ganymede, as an Aquarius, you are both passionate and giving of your beauty and your talents. And while those are positive traits, it also means you lack inhibitions. In some cases, this attitude of spontaneity can carry you a little too far whether it’s in a relationship, a project, or everyday life.
Overall, however, Aquarians are known for being bold and not holding back. They also tend to be:
An Aquarius’ more negative traits include:
- Inability to focus on a single task
- Uninhibited to the point of “bad” behavior
- Tense under pressure
Positive Aquarius Personality Traits
In most cases, being outgoing and selfless is a positive thing for an Aquarius. Their imaginations and passion for living life in general—and sharing it with friends, family, and their partners—are practically contagious.
In addition to being the filler of others’ cups, you’re also passionate about doing what you love and seeking out truth and justice in everything you do. When it comes to friendships and partnerships, you’re affectionate and frank, maintaining honesty as if your life depends on it.
You’re open and giving in your relationships, too, worrying about others before yourself. And while you do desire a partner who’s faithful, you aren’t possessive or controlling over them, either.
And though you might experience strong emotions on the inside, most Aquarian personalities are more reserved in their behavior when they’re dealing with negativity. It doesn’t mean you don’t feel jealousy, but you’re less likely to act out versus keep it inside and stew a bit.
You also have a ton of energy (mostly positive) that keeps you motivated to tackle challenges in life and face adversity with a smile.
Negative Aquarius Personality Traits
For February 13 people, emotional baggage can still be present under the surface, despite your glowing exterior. Resolving issues from your past can become a challenge, and you’re more susceptible to substance abuse and addiction than most other signs.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you’re doomed if you fall off the positive life course you desire for yourself. Though you may come off as a bit unstable to others, that’s more their perception due to your somewhat erratic personality traits.
While outsiders may assume you’re ditzy or unintelligent, that’s not the case. However, you do tend to rush into things, something that you may struggle with when it comes to personal projects or work. Relationships, however, you approach with much more caution.
And though taking things slow can be a positive move to avoid getting hurt, you may also be missing out on something good in your life due to your fear of commitment.
Of course, if things don’t go your way, you might feel immense pressure and stress. Another negative Aquarius trait is a lack of investment in certain topics or subjects, especially if you feel like they’re not your strong suit or you think you’ll fail regardless.
Others might perceive you as vain or selfish because they can’t see the internal struggle you have going on; a reluctance to participate in something you feel terrible at can seem like you’re turning up your nose at others. But perceptions are only part of the equation; true friends know your real personality and love you for it.
Work and Career Success for an Aquarius
In general, February 13 people are good at balancing home and career life, succeeding at both with a zest that’s admirable. And though you can maintain your positive nature even in a stifling work environment, you do best in jobs where you can use your personality to make progress.
Your affinity for people makes you a shoo-in for roles that rely on communication since you’re so adept at creating and navigating relationships. Of course, you prefer to cultivate friendships in your personal life rather than pour everything you have into work, a trait that’s admirable though not necessarily productive in cutthroat work environments.
Still, your originality is often a boon for business, so you may want to consider a field that doesn’t depend so much on numbers as interpersonal relationships and brainstorming. It also helps if your work environment is casual enough that your superiors don’t mind your rebellious streak and unconventional approach to many workplace challenges!
Of course, a corporate environment might not be the right fit for the daring and adventurous Aquarius. You might do well to consider a career with more variety and versatility—something that gets you out of your comfort zone daily. After all, you like experiencing challenges (and maybe a little bit scared, if you’re honest).
Think about a job that requires you to “perform,” such as a science or education field that’s hands-on and involves working with (or teaching) other people and children.
What You Need to Know About Love & Relationships as an Aquarius
An Aquarius has a giving and gracious personality in general, but this can put them at a disadvantage when it comes to people who are only looking out for themselves. Just as you’re more vulnerable to being taken advantage of, you’re also more likely to be drawn to dangerous personalities that aren’t compatible with yours.
But it’s not all doom and gloom when it comes to relationships. There are a few signs that make perfect (or nearly perfect) partners to the effusive Aquarius. Read on for more about your sign’s compatibility, plus which zodiac signs you should stay away from.
Who Are Aquarius Signs Most Compatible With?
Although you may feel like you’ve found your soul mate regardless of their astrological sign, there are a few signs that pair better with Aquarius than others. According to the stars, the most compatible signs with Aquarius are:
- Another Aquarius
Though every sign has its positives and negatives when it comes to compatibility, one of the easiest signs for you to get along with might just be another Aquarius. After all, another January 21 to February 19 partner will be as equally as passionate as you are in life and love—if you two can agree on the seriousness (or not) of your relationship.
Who Are Aquarius Signs Least Compatible With?
There are no guarantees when it comes to astrological pairings, but for the most part, Aquarius signs are least compatible with the following:
The One Sign Aquarius Should Truly Avoid
Although compatibility in relationships is the most asked-about astrological conundrum, you may also be curious about compatibility in friendships. And in general, there is one sign Aquarius guys and girls should downright avoid, and that’s Leo.
Leo is the sign opposite of Aquarius, and while both are creative, innovative, and a bit inattentive, this can lead to personality clashes. At the end of the day, Aquarius wants to pour more of themselves into others, while Leo is more self-centered.
Approach a relationship or friendship with a Leo with care, or you may end up regretting the pairing in the end.
February 13 People in Relationships
In relationships, you tend to hang back a bit despite your outgoing personality. But it’s not because you aren’t interested in a potential mate; it’s because you’re unsure about making a long-term commitment. You prefer to maintain your independence in most cases, and that can mean you’re a bit flighty in relationships.
You might even fall in (and out of) love easily, but don’t get down on yourself just yet. It might take a while for you to settle down because you keep wondering what (and who) else is out there. Of course, once you meet the right person, all of that will change.
Until then, give yourself permission to experiment in relationships and listen to your own intuition. After all, it rarely guides you off track. Even if you find the right person, whose sign is also compatible with yours, there’s nothing wrong with taking things slow until you’re sure you’re sure.
After all, you often leap before you look in other parts of your life, but relationships are one area where it pays to be a bit more cautious.
When you’re with someone you feel truly connected to, you’ll let your passion for your person shine through. Turning up the charm means your partner will always find you attractive. At the same time, your dependability in relationships contrasts starkly with your haphazardness in everyday life—something your partner will appreciate.

Advice for February 13 Birthdays
While your positive traits undoubtedly weigh heavier than your negative ones, your high-energy lifestyle can often leave you feeling drained. But keep up your positivity, as it’s what makes you one of the most passionate and loveable signs of the zodiac.
You may have had well-meaning onlookers suggest that you tone down your personality a bit. But you should recognize your daring and original personality for what it is: a massive bonus in a world where everyone is cookie-cutter in their approach to life.
All it takes is for you to focus your excess energy into finding the path that’s right for you in life. Instead of focusing on the little things, look at the bigger picture and keep your eye on the prize. Forget about fitting in; you’re bound to continue being an original, no matter how much you try to conform.
