Happy Birthday Aquarius!
If you were born between January 20th and February 18th, you are a representative of the Water Bearer, and your Sun Sign is Aquarius. Despite being associated with Water, Aquarius is actually an Air sign, along with Gemini and Libra. The element of Air gives Aquarius a sharp mind and the flexibility to solve any problem. Aquarians love to learn and can often be found with their nose in a book. Without mental stimulation, they can easily become bored or even feel constrained.
Aquarians are kind, social individuals; they are always willing to lend an ear or a helping hand, and many of them fight for humanitarian causes. Their loyalty makes Aquarians amazing friends, but if they are lied to, they will not hesitate to cut someone out of their lives. Because of this deep-seated fear of betrayal, Aquarians may appear standoffish to new people, and they take a while to open up. However, once they accept someone, there is no limit to their love.
Although Aquarians are often extroverts who thrive off social interaction, they never change themselves to fit in with the group. Aquarians are independent and original. Their innovative nature and razor-sharp intellect can lead to a stubborn streak, however. Because they’re so used to being right, Aquarians may not be willing to admit when they are wrong. Their kind nature usually prevails, however, and you can always trust an Aquarius to look after both the best interests of their friends and society at large.
There are so many crystals that resonate strongly with the Aquarians. They amplify their best qualities while also minimizing their weaknesses. All of these stones make great birthday gifts for your favorite Aquarian, and they can help anyone get in touch with their own Aquarian energies.
