14 Quotes To Celebrate Aquarians

The penultimate sign of the zodiac wheel, Aquarius is ruled by rebellious and unpredictable Uranus. Aquarians, born between January 20 and February 18, are decidedly esoteric, idealistic trailblazers, brilliant philanthropists, and self-prescribed loners.

Those born under Aquarius consider normalcy a death knell, much preferring to march to the beat of their own drum — and if there’s no drum available, improvisation works fine, too. Their eccentric, creative minds charm those around them, but their unemotional nature can affect their closest relationships, as they tend to prioritize humanity in general over any one specific human.

Still, their ability to focus on the bigger picture makes them invaluable leaders, influential community members, and endlessly curious, lifelong learners. Aquarians are the cosmos’ primary rebels without a cause and the friends we’d all be wise to call when we need some forward-thinking, no-nonsense advice.

Although not spoken or written by Aquarians, these quotes serve to exemplify their unique spirit, whether you yourself were born under the sign of Aquarius or you know someone who was.

Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.
Albert Camus
