Aquarius Zodiac Sign

If you were born between January 20th and February 18th, your zodiac sign is Aquarius. Whether you're shy and quiet or wildly eccentric and energetic (Aquarius can be both), you will probably be a 'glass-half-full' kind of person. Aquarius is famous for their eternally optimistic outlook on life and for seeing the world as being full of possibilities.

Symbolised by the water bearer, Aquarius is also known as The Helper and this philanthropic sign gravitates towards careers with a humanitarian cause or mission. Jobs which require a balance of creativity and intellect, such as writing or teaching, are a perfect fit for zodiac sign. They are community orientated and genuinely enjoy helping others, but their desire for intellectual conversation sees them more as leaders of after-school homework clubs, rather than the football coach.

These independent zodiac sign craves freedom but the free-spirited nature of Aquarius often leads to feelings of loneliness.
