About Aquarius Man (15 Personality Traits)

Do you like eccentric, intelligent guys that stand out from the crowd, are compassionate, with a sense of justice, and a thirst for knowledge? If the answer is yes then let me introduce you to Aquarius man. 

I remember my first encounter with an Aquarius man. He came up to me in a bar and said "It would be a crime if we didn’t go out with each other". It was back in the days of punk rock and against the fashion, he wore a tartan shirt. He looked like a library assistant. 

I was instantly smitten. There was something beguiling about him. He defied convention. He trod his own path. And that, my friend, is an Aquarius man. 

In order to understand Aquarius, it is important to examine the particulars of his Zodiac.


  • Air sign
  • Ruled by Uranus
  • Symbol – the Water Bearer
  • Fixed sign

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac.

Positive traits: tolerance, individuality, vision, open-mindedness, humanitarian, independent, originality.

Negative traits: neurosis, easily distracted, detached, won’t commit, eccentric, aloof.

Air sign

Air signs are the communicators and the thinkers of the world. Imagine them throwing up ideas and concepts into the air, working out the answers in their own mind. 

Air signs are curious intellectuals who see their role in life as educators. They are objective individuals who are idealistic and strive to help others. 

Ruling planet – Uranus 

Uranus is the planet of sudden and drastic change. It is associated with the invention, scientific innovation, and discovery. It is also related to uprisings and rebellion. 

Any radical shifts in thinking or world strategy can be afforded to Uranus. This planet forces us to change our attitude, our mind, our life, and our way of thinking, reforming ourselves. 

Fixed sign

Fixed signs are the movers and shakers of the Zodiac. They are the ones that get things done. Cardinal signs are the ones that start off a project, 

Fixed signs get things underway and Mutable signs finish the job. 

What Is The Personality Of An Aquarius Male?

1. Open-minded


Whatever you say Aquarius man is never intolerant. This is one Zodiac sign that defines the word liberal. He is non-judgemental, sees people for who they are, not what they are. He has a well-balanced view of the world and is able to see both sides of an argument. 

2. Impulsive

It is not surprising, thanks to their ruling planet of Uranus, that Aquarius is prone to spontaneity or impulsive acts. Actually, trying to pin Aquarius down is like trying to catch air in a butterfly net. Aquarius is the definition of impromptu or spur-of-the-moment.  

3. Intellectual

Some Aquarians are obviously bookish nerdy types but not all. I know an Aquarius man who is a devoted football supporter, in fact, he is a season ticket holder yet loves Beethoven and reads Thomas Hardy at the weekend to relax. Aquarians soak up knowledge like sponges. 

4. Eccentric

Aquarians march to the beat of their own drum. This means that very often they’ll wear clothes that are not in fashion, they’ll like music that is not in vogue, basically, they like what they like and to hell with the rest of us. 

Think of them as your crazy cousin with the dyed blue hair who skateboards to college with an old-fashioned Walkman because he loves the crackling sound the cassettes make. 

5. Assertive

You may think that Aquarians are a bit shy when you first meet them but don’t be fooled; they are simply sizing you up. Aquarian men never do anything they are not happy doing. In fact, they can have quite a temper when provoked. Especially if you are restricting his freedom in some way. 

6. Independent

There are some star signs that crave the love and partnership of a family unit. Take Cancer or Pisces man for example. These are dedicated and loving family-orientated men. On the other hand, we have an Aquarius man. He is not quite as independent as Gemini or Aries, but he does value his freedom.

7. Creative

Uranus may be the planet of innovation, science, and technology but Aquarians are also incredibly creative too. This can manifest itself in a number of ways, from wearing weird and outlandish clothes or dyeing their hair rainbow colors to working in a creative field. 

8. Trustworthy

If you do happen to be lucky enough to bag an Aquarius man then one thing you will never have to worry about and that is him cheating on you. Aquarius men have such an inbuilt sense of justice that they find it virtually impossible to cheat on their partner. 

I say virtually. We are talking only about the Sun Sign here. If he has a moon in Gemini or Scorpio that’s an entirely different matter. 

9. Easy-going

Can’t make it to the party? No problem. Going to be late for his graduation? He understands. Your ex is coming over for a study session? That’s fine with him. Believe it or not, these are all actual conversations with an Aquarius man and his replies. You see, Aquarius men are so trustworthy themselves they believe everyone else is.  

Use this tool to check whether he actually is who he says he is
Whether you're married or have just started seeing someone, infidelity rates are on the rise and have increased over 40% in the last 20 years, so you have all the right to be worried.

Perhaps you want to know if he's texting other women behind your back? Or whether he has active Tinder or dating profile? Or worse yet, whether he has a criminal record or is cheating on you?

This tool will do just that and pull up any hidden social media and dating profiles, photos, criminal records, and much more to hopefully help put your doubts to rest.

10. Humanitarian

Aquarius has a very strong sense of justice and cares, not only about the plight of others but of the planet and animals. As a result, you’ll often find them campaigning on behalf of charities for green projects or living alternative lifestyles. 

11. Analytical

We already know that Aquarius is an Air sign so it’s not surprising to learn that the Aquarius male is analytical in his approach to reasoning and thinking. He uses logic to deconstruct ideas and theories before arriving at his conclusion. 

12. Visionary 

Aquarians are forward-thinkers, again, this is thanks to Uranus. Their ruling planet gives them the power to easily see the bigger picture. Moreover, they are a fixed sign which means that once they have a theory they’ll get working on it immediately. 

13. Idealistic


Aquarian males often talk of what their ‘ideal world’ looks like. This relates to their visionary ideas and sense of social justice. They have big plans for the world, where everyone has enough food to eat, shelter from harsh conditions, people and animals are treated with respect and love. 

14. Honest

If you want an honest answer to a question just ask an Aquarius male. He won’t beat around the bush and he won’t sugar-coat it either. However, be careful, he can come across as a little condescending at times. This is because he thinks he’s always right, but then again, don’t we all?

15. Can’t be tied down

Aquarius man doesn’t like restrictions of any kind, whether it is physical, mental, or financial. He needs his freedom. This can mean space to be alone from time to time, or traveling or earning enough money to live the kind of life he wants to live. It can also mean, however, not committing fully to a relationship

How To Attract An Aquarius Man

Now that you know more about the personality traits of Aquarius, you might want to know what Aquarius man likes.

1. Intellect

Aquarius man in love is not like other male star signs, so you can throw away your Zodiac playback. Aquarius men do love sex, just like any other red-blooded male. However, what attracts an Aquarius man is intelligence, passion for a particular subject, knowledge for a topic. 

Aquarius loves to learn. They also love to impart their knowledge to anyone who is willing to listen. Stimulating their mind and engaging in interesting conversations win the heart of Aquarius. 

2. Confidence

Aquarius men need love just as much as any other star sign in the Zodiac, but they don’t have this pressing need to start a family or settle down. As a result, they are attracted to independent women who are confident in their own lives.

Aquarians are not looking to complete someone, they want a person who is already complete. They feel whole and well-rounded themselves. So they are looking for an equal to match their intellect and their confidence. 

3. Open-minded

Nothing turns off an Aquarius male than a person who is closed off to suggestion. They cannot tolerate intolerance, especially when it comes down to people of different cultures, races, or gender. 

But not only that, Aquarius is the very definition of new ideas, innovation, discovery, and change. If they love the art they’ll be drawn to abstract, not traditional works. If it is the literature they’ll seek out new writers rather than read the classics. But remember, as, with all-star signs, we have character traits in other signs as well. So bear this in mind.


How do you know if an Aquarius man loves you?

You’ll know because Aquarius men are upfront and honest about their intentions. But even if they don’t tell you outright, the amount of contact they make with you should be a huge giveaway. They’ll be the ones initiating contact and arranging dates to meet up.
