Here's What Everyone Gets Wrong About Aquarians

Those born between January 20 and February 18 are Aquarians. According to Allure, that means you may aspire to "change the world" as you're part of the "most humanitarian astrological sign." Cosmopolitan also believes that Aquarians are analytical people who like to think outside of the box. If you've dabbled a bit in astrology, you know that Aquarians are known to be "aliens" or in their own world. Co – Star even describes them as "outcasts." If you are an Aquarius, you may agree with all of this and heavily relate to Jughead's infamous "I'm a weirdo" speech from "Riverdale" (via YouTube). 

However, just like every astrological sign, you're so much more than your stereotypical traits. After all, not every Aquarius is the same. Even when looking at famous Aquarians, like Harry Styles, Oprah Winfrey, and Paris Hilton, you can see they are uniquely different (via Cosmopolitan). So, while it is easy to attribute certain traits to Aquarius people, there are some things that you can get wrong if you're looking at it through a black-and-white lens.

Aquarians are not preachy loners who just go with the flow

First of all, people with their sun sign in Aquarius are known to be independent, but that doesn't mean they're loners. As Refinery29 points out, just because Aquarius people are marching to the beat of their own drum, they don't always want to march alone. In fact, a lot of Aquarius people love having allies by their side. They just might need some alone time to recharge every once in a while, according to Sweety High

It should also be noted that while Aquarius people are known to be humanitarians who fight for justice, it can come off a little preachy at times. While they do have big opinions, they are not 100% set in their ways. An Aquarius is actually willing to listen and change their mind. It's what makes them strong humanitarians at the end of the day. They'll back down and have a real conversation, according to Refinery29. 

Another common misconception is that Aquarians only go with the flow. While they are an air sign, Aquarians are not just free spirits, down for anything. As YourTango puts it, they've actually thought out every possible outcome. While it may seem like your Aquarius friend doesn't care what happens on Friday night, it's because they've outweighed all the options and think they're all good. If they didn't, they would say something.
