The Sign of Aquarius

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the age of Aquarius, Aquarius! Aquarius!

Aquarius is the astrological sign which runs from January 20 to February 19.

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac and associated with future ideas and the unusual. Individuals born under this sign are thought to have leadership qualities with creative, challenging, entertaining, progressive, stimulating, and independent character, but one which is also prone to rebelliousness, coldness, erraticism, and impracticality.*
