As is also the case for all of the other zodiac signs, there are a number of key astrological aspects that influence and shape the Aquarius personality. Here is an overview.
He is an Air sign
Aquarius is an Air sign, which means that the Aquarius man in your life is all but guaranteed to be of high intelligence and in possession of impressive verbal skills.
Aquarius men are known for their fast-moving, open and highly perceptive minds. They’re also extremely logical and have an amazing ability to remain objective in almost any situation. It is safe to say that Aquarius men are more driven by intellect than by emotions.
Out of all of the zodiac signs, Aquarius is the most adaptable when it comes to comprehending and mastering technology. While most people in older generations fall behind the wave of new technology, Aquarius men tend to embrace and roll with the changes. As a matter of fact, they’re often the inventors an entrepreneurs driving the changes in the first place.
Aquarius men have hungry minds. They always want to keep learning, exploring and making new discoveries throughout their lives.
He is a fixed zodiac sign
While most people are familiar with the concept of Air signs, Earth signs, Water signs and Fire signs, many are unaware that each of the elements is further divided into cardinal, fixed and mutable. Whether a sign is cardinal, fixed or mutable depends on its order in the season: The sign that comes first is cardinal, the sign that comes in the middle of the season is fixed, and the sign that wraps up the season and leads into the next is mutable.
Aquarius is a fixed sign. This means that Aquarius embodies the pinnacle of what the Air element represents. It also means that Aquarius is ambitious, hardworking and independent. Fixed signs are often incredibly good at getting stuff done – and at involving others in their various projects and campaigns.
His symbol is the water-bearer
Aquarius is symbolized by the water-bearer, the mythical and mysterious healer who carries the waters of life and bestows them on the land and the people.
The symbol of the water-bearer has a long and rich history, from Ancient Egypt and Babylon to modern-day depictions of a young maiden pouring life-giving water from a bucket.
Water represents the nectar of life, and it is easy to see how vital the role of the water-bearer was in ancient societies. Today, the symbol of the water-bearer can represent the people who really move society forward through innovation in technology, art and science.
He is ruled by Uranus
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus.
In astrology, Uranus is considered a mysterious planet and is associated with sudden realisations, shocks and changes. The energy of Uranus is forward-looking and revolutionary – it rails against the restraints of tradition and instead celebrates individuality, independent and new ideas.
The fact that the Aquarius man is ruled by Uranus has a tremendous influence on his personality and outlook on life. By default, an Aquarius man is a bit of a rebel, an innovator and a non-conformist. Even if he is raised in the most conformist and conservative setting, he’s bound to have a wild streak.
Aquarius male personality traits
Now that you are aware of the key components that make up the Aquarius male personality, it is time for us to look at how they manifest as core personality traits. Without further ado, let’s dive in and take a good look around.
Aquarius men tend to be free spirited
The most important and defining feature of the Aquarius male personality is that he is an unapologetic free spirit. Aquarius men dance to the beat of their own drum and tend to be rather unconcerned as to whether or not the people around them are going to approve or disapprove. In other words, Aquarius men are wildly idiosyncratic.
Aquarius men cannot be shamed into conformity or restrained by social moores. They don’t really fit in, and they’re okay with that. While others may judge them, they are just as likely to admire them for their guts and boldness in being themselves.
Aquarius men are quick to come up with or embrace new ideas, concepts and ways of going about things. They’re trailblazers in this sense.
And let’s not forget that just about every Aquarius man likes to experiment. He is not afraid of making mistakes or of failing in front of everyone, so he has no fear of starting something and leaning from his mistakes until he finds his winning formula.
Because of their open-mindedness and energetic attitudes to life, Aquarius men can seem much younger than their chronological age. They generally maintain a youthful energy throughout their lives.
Aquarius men can be provocateurs
Aquarius men enjoy challenging and pushing against the status quo. They cannot stand arbitrary rules and customs, and will poke logical holes in any argument in defence of conservative (and often religious) ways of living.
Whether publicly or privately, Aquarius men hold every societal value up against the bright light of their own logical minds. The result is often that they find the conformist way of doing thing sadly insufficient, and discards it in favour of a new and different approach.
The Aquarius man frequently delights in sharing his views and opinions with the general public. If he has a platform (and he often does), such as as newspaper column or a large social media following, he will use it to spread his ideas.
Aquarius men are intelligent
Finding an Aquarius man who isn’t highly intelligent is harder than finding a needle in a haystack.
A high intelligence is so intrinsic to the Aquarian personality that it would be impossible to describe the Aquarius male personality without highlighting it.
Aquarius men like to use their minds, and their minds always require new fodder. Aquarius men are the kind of people who don’t stop reading, studying or developing themselves when they leave formal education. On the contrary, they remain engaged in various developmental activities and research in order to keep learning and growing.
It is no coincidence that many Aquarius men are innovators, scientists and entrepreneurs. Each of these pathways demands a flexible mind and an ability to keep assimilating new knowledge and insights.
Aquarius men are unpredictable
Aquarius men are unpredictable, volatile, spontaneous, and can even be somewhat unreliable. This is often considered one of Aquarius’ most negative traits.
Aquarius men rarely have fixed patterns and rhythms, which can be annoying and challenging for their loved ones. Whether you are the spouse or the child of an Aquarius man, you can never be sure where he is at or what he is up to. Him being late for dinner or going on a last-minute business trip to Boston are just things his family are going to have to get used to.
Aquarius men are fiercely independent
Aquarius men value their freedom and independence above most other things in life.
From this statement alone you can deduct that Aquarius men do not like being told what to do or how to behave. They only take criticism well if it comes from someone they respect and admire.
An Aquarius man is a bit of a lone wolf. He’s still connected to the pack, but he prefers running up ahead where he can scout the terrain.
Aquarius men need alone time
Aquarius men can be outgoing and social, but they also need plenty of alone time to recharge their social batteries.
If you are married to or dating an Aquarius man, it is extremely important that you don’t pressure him on this. An Aquarius man who doesn’t get to hang out inside his own mind with some regularity is not a happy camper.
In many ways, Aquarius men are like cats. They’re most comfortable and happy when they can come and go as they please.
How the Aquarius man and Aquarius woman differ
Obvious physical attributes aside, what makes an Aquarius man different from an Aquarius woman in terms of his temperament, personality and overall outlook on life?
Both Aquarius men and women are independent free-thinkers, but in the Aquarius man these traits are often even more pronounced.
Aquarius women are often a little more sensitive and shy than Aquarius men. They trust only slowly and are more selective about who they share their ideas and inner worlds with.

He’s reluctant to make a commitment
