Personality Traits of the Aquarius Man

Born between 20th January and 18th February, your Aquarius man is known for his unique persona and astute observations.


Humane, determined, idealistic, and more traditional than you think, your Aquarius man is the eccentric of the zodiac. This Air sign never lets his more animal passions direct his outer actions. This is why this star sign is symbolised by the water-bearer. Your Aquarius man carries the burden of what it means to be human, and that is no easy task!

So, if your friend or partner is an Aquarius, pat yourself on the back, because you would have had to sacrifice many things to stand by him, or will do later down the line. To help you along, we have brought together some key personality traits you need to know about your Aquarius man.

A Noble Spirit

Your Aquarius man has always stood alone, and even in his childhood the sun did not come out much. But it is from this narrow beginning that he developed perseverance, patience, and the ability to see clear. He will never let you down and has pure intentions.

Ancient Fact: The month of February is named after the Latin word ‘februa’, which means ‘to purify’.

He’s Eccentric

In Aquarius, the Sun is at the furthest point from his own sign of Leo. That can make him feel uncomfortable, frustrated, and restricted, so much he ends up being eccentric and even revolutionary. At school, he never bowed to peer pressure because he was firmly fixed in his own mind, having a unique way of expressing himself.

His thought-processes always reveal him, from his fashion sense to his unusual ideas. The Aquarian male can go the extra mile to make himself look unique and interesting to reflect how he feels. It is not to make himself look pretty, but to arouse conversation and express his own individuality.

A Social Kind of Guy

Aquarius is a friend to all, and as his best friend or partner you will always wonder what it is that you share with him that he doesn’t with others. Your Aquarius man sees the wider picture that affects everyone’s lives. He has great organisational skills without even realising it and although he stands alone, he is not a loner. He is resourceful and has plenty of tact in social situations. When he speaks, it will be with the air of getting to the bottom of the problem and solving it.

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?” Abraham Lincoln, an Aquarian President.

Although he is very good at bringing people together, you should remind him that he needs to look after his nearest and dearest, otherwise he can leave you feeling left out in the cold.

Bright Eyed

Your Aquarius man is a free spirit and has many ideas. Look for a distant, far away look in his eyes, as frank and clear as the water that is poured from the divine jug; and enter his wide understanding of life in its many guises and aspects. He is Promethean in his ability to predict and see ahead, and also wants to understand and analyse everything he comes across, exploring everything that the Air element has to offer. This can make his thoughts and person seem stuck. Aquarius is the fixed Air sign, after-all.


One of the telling features of his personality is that he is aloof, and hard to pin down. If he messages you to say he is busy and cannot meet, he always means it. He is not a liar, but is silent on his intentions. He is in his own high world. Don’t let this put you off, however, it’s better that he has realisable goals in life than no goals at all, and this brings onto the final and most important trait of his personality.

He’s a missionary!

As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, there is a sacrificial side to his personality that you will have to deal with. He will naturally expect you to live up to him and his world, and make hard choices that are self-effacing.

The Aquarius man is not ambitious for social status or the luxuries of life, and rather enjoys the oddities of life, at least intellectually; and as a friend or partner, you should know that he can often find it difficult to earth himself. He is driven by something more particular, more ideal, more beautiful than what motivates the Capricorn… if he can find it without becoming lost.

“To be honest, I’m still searching for that one thing. Something I can really stand up for, and get behind, and be like: This Is My Life Fight.” Harry Styles, Aquarian pop star.
