Have you ever wondered what your zodiac sign says about you? If you were born on February 16th, then according to Western astrology, your sign is Aquarius, the sign of the waterpot. In this article, we will explore the characteristics, traits, and careers associated with Aquarius, providing you with a deeper understanding of who you are and what makes you unique.

Aquarius Overview

Aquarius, known as कुम्भ (kumbha) in Sanskrit, is the sign of the water bearer. People born under this sign are known to be altruistic and lofty thinkers. However, they may also experience frequent mood swings. Ruled by Saturn, the planet of karma and mysticism, Aquarians possess a somber and mysterious nature. As an air sign, they are imaginative, logical, and curious. Being a fixed sign, Aquarians are known for their steady and predictable nature. Lastly, being a masculine sign, they tend to be aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned. Aquarius's preferred gemstone is blue sapphire, though they can also benefit from blue spinel and amethyst.

Traits of the Sun in Aquarius

In Western astrology, a person's zodiac sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on February 16th, you are considered an Aquarius. Here are some general traits that are likely to be found in someone with the Sun in Aquarius:

  • Seriousness: Aquarians are thoughtful and contemplative individuals. They are drawn to philosophy and metaphysics and enjoy engaging in meaningful conversations.
  • Dissatisfaction: Being ambitious, Aquarians often have high hopes for their future. However, they may find that their achievements don't live up to their expectations. It is important for them to find a balance between ambition and contentment.
  • Tremendous Stamina: When Aquarians set their minds on a goal, they have the ability to work relentlessly. They possess exceptional endurance and are willing to put in the effort as long as the reward is worth it.
  • Financial Challenges: Aquarians may struggle with saving money and managing their finances responsibly. They are prone to careless spending habits and may benefit from developing better money management skills.
  • Ill-tempered: Aquarians can be a bit difficult to get along with at times. They have a unique perspective on the world and don't appreciate others trying to impose their views on them. Developing a daily meditation practice can help them better control their emotions and empathize with those around them.

Aquarius Careers

Aquarians are humanitarians at heart and are often drawn to careers that involve helping others or have a spiritual focus. They can excel in professions such as philanthropy, social reform, healing, philosophy, mysticism, and religious work. Aquarians may also be seen in other fields such as law, radio, television, or maintenance. However, careers that require a high degree of worldly ambition may not align with their contemplative nature, making roles like entrepreneurship, executive positions, politics, acting, or competitive athletics less suitable.

Aquarius Mantras

Mantras are short phrases that uplift and cleanse our minds, hearts, and consciousness. Aquarians can benefit from meditating with specific mantras that resonate with their unique energy. One mantra that is especially beneficial for Aquarians is:

ॐ वामनाय​ नमः
Om kurma-devaya namaha

Additionally, there is a universal maha-mantra that is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे
Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
