What You Should Know about Your Aquarius Baby

January 21, 2022 4 min read

Let’s talk about what makes an Aquarius in Sun so unique, tolerant, and imaginative!
 
Aquarius Sun Fast Facts
 
Your baby is an Aquarius Sun if they were born between January 21st and February 18th.
  • The Aquarius sign is represented by the water-bearer.
    • This symbol of healing relates to the revolutionary legacies of many Aquarius leaders, who fought to bring a better life to others. That includes Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Rosa Parks!
  • Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, and they are an Air sign.
    • Air signs know how to connect with ideas and people. They are intellectuals who may seem to float through life, but there is a lot going on under the surface.
  • Aquarius is a fixed sign.
    • There are three modalities of the Zodiac: cardinal, fixed, and mutable. Each modality is home to one of each type of elemental sign. Aquarius is the Air sign in the fixed state.
    • Fixed signs are self-assured and focused on what they want in life. They can be a bit resistant when life takes them down an unexpected path, but they’re not the type to give up when the going gets tough.
The Mysterious Aquarius Child
 

Part of what makes Aquarius such a charismatic sign is how hard it can be to understand them. Like a night sky full of stars, there’s so much yet to be discovered. Your Aquarius baby is a tiny enigma, and it’s a joy to discover what makes them so special.

It won’t be easy, though! Aquarius likes to be difficult to solve, they crave a sense of individuality and will have fun experimenting with things like fashion, hobbies, and more. Rainboots in the sunshine, a new favorite color every day, or a secret language spoken with stuffed animals are how your child will define themselves.

Aquarius doesn’t want to be like everybody else because they believe in being unapologetically themselves. And that goes for everyone – your child will be highly tolerant and possess a mature understanding of “the golden rule,” treating others with kindness. Show your little Aquarius how to let down their walls and build lasting friendships, because unique doesn’t have to mean alone.

Stubborn, Idealistic Aquarius Just Wants to Help
 

Picture this: Your Aquarius child wants to run for class president. They’re well-liked and are sure to get the votes, but you’re a little nervous as you watch them draw yet another poster. That’s probably because your child is running on a utopian platform: free ice cream at lunch, no more homework, and field trips every Friday, guaranteed.

This is the nature of an Aquarius. Your kid is hopeful, hard-working, and won’t listen to anyone who tries to water down their ideas. In fact, they’re so good at explaining the benefits of zero homework, you may find yourself agreeing! It’s up to you to help your Aquarius child channel their revolutionary ideas into something real. Once you empower your little one, they’ll go on to change the world more than you ever thought possible.

  
Parenting the Freedom-Loving Aquarius
 

It’s no surprise that there have been five Aquarius presidents (tied with Scorpio, above all other signs). Liberty and freedom are exactly what excites Aquarius. So how do you deal with a three-year-old who thinks they could run the world?

Well, it’s really no different than dealing with any toddler who’s discovering their independence for the first time. Just be sure to encourage your little Aquarius to be responsible with their choices and let them practice on ones that don’t matter much. If they want to pack cold salami for lunch, walk backwards on the playground, or sleep at the foot of their bed, let them see what happens.


Are you an Aquarius, Mom?

In motherhood, an Aquarius has advantages that can also act as roadblocks if you don’t take time to understand yourself before turning your attention to your child. You are a loving, calm, and tolerant presence who acts as a safe harbor for your children to come home to. They won’t be afraid to open up to you because you model honesty and acceptance for them.

You are a multi-tasker who can switch gears easily, but as you keep an eye out for the next best thing, you may find yourself changing things up too much. Maybe one week you’re all about Marie Kondo-ing the house, and the next you’re intent on scrapbooking to preserve every memory possible. Whenever the wind blows, remind yourself to take a step back and breathe before you follow the breeze.

As a highly independent person, you tend to give your children a lot of responsibility and freedom, as appropriate. This will teach them to be self-reliant and confident in their abilities. Remember to emphasize the importance of asking for help when you need it.

And sometimes you might need help too, mama! An Aquarius mom values her family and will do anything for them, but you’re part of that family, too. Take care of yourself and find ways to bring yourself into the present. Appreciate the moment and open your heart to your children.

Finally, there is nothing like the feeling of an Aquarius mother believing in you. As a child, your mother is your hero. With your love and support, your children will never hesitate to chase their dreams and make you proud.

Baby Zodiac Series
 
There are 12 signs that make up the Zodiac calendar. Your child will have a full, unique birth chart based on the date, time of day, and location of their birth, but we’re focusing on the sun signs, which is the sign most people associate with the Zodiac.

Sun signs are representative of how you view yourself in relation to the world. They define your individual liveliness and are also associated with your creative and social energies. In comparison, the other two signs in your ‘Big 3’ are your rising and moon signs. Rising signs reveal how others might perceive your actions and persona, among other things. And moon signs relate to your emotions and how you self-reflect.
