Freedom to let their imagination speak and act accordingly is not uncommon for an Aquarius. Chances are that some people think of them as being odd, a hippie or even a freak.

Wellbeing Of Others

A happy and successful life is something an Aquarius wishes for everyone. They embrace the world and the opportunity to be alive. There’s so much to learn and so much to teach. Do you know that song by Michael Jackson “Heal the world, make it a better place”? Well, that’s how they feel. Everyone deserves to be happy and if they can contribute to that they’ll do their very best. You could find them volunteering for a good cause.

Even though they don’t necessarily show it, they are pretty sensitive by heart. When you first meet an Aquarius it’s very likely that they’ll seem cold or distant, even though you’ve heard many stories about their rebellious adventures. That’s because they need time to trust someone and determine whether or not you have an intellectual bond. Sensitivity especially comes to life when you betray them or don’t keep a promise. It hurts them a lot and takes them back to the distant behavior we talked about before.



Figuring them out can be a hard job since they can show both energetic and silent moments. It could happen that they are too busy focussing on themselves that they forget about the people that love them the most. On the other hand they can be extremely helpful and talkative with conversations that last for hours. One moment they could be in a party mode whilst later on they decide to pull back and just be alone. Give them the space they need because they have a good heart in the end.



Before committing to a relationship an Aquarius usually takes it’s time. For them it’s necessary to feel a strong mental bond towards a partner. Besides that they need to be sure there is room for their free spirited mind and lifestyle. Once this phase has passed you will have a partner who will love you deeply. Be prepared for some exciting moments and surprises as the Aquarians aren’t exactly predictable. This combination of true love and entertainment can result in extreme devotion for one another.
