 And do you think you have traits that match your sign?

I'm a gemini and I get bored very easily, also no matter what my emotion is I always put on a happy face.

I'm an Aquarian. I have no idea what my traits should be, I'm not overly familiar with this type stuff.

Quoting Danesmommy1: I'm an Aquarian. I have no idea what my traits should be, I'm not overly familiar with this type stuff.

 Aquarius is a Fixed Air sign, ruled by Uranus/Saturn.  As the 11th sign of the zodiac, the Aquarius individual is an unconventional and maybe even eccentric free thinker who marches to the beat of an entirely different drummer than the rest of the zodiac.  Famous and historical Aquarians include Oprah Winfrey (January 29), President Ronald Reagan (February 6), President Abraham Lincoln (February 11), and Charles Darwin (February 12). 

Aquarius is an idealistic thinker who more than any other sign is drawn to the concept of living life outside the box.  This is a progressive individual who resists being caught up in conventional boundaries and rules, and who actively seeks out change for his benefit and often for the benefit of humanity as a whole.  Aquarius is a sign that cares about the environment, politics, economics, and humanitarian issues, and who is often found acting as an advocate for those who are less fortunate.  Aquarians genuinely like the human race and are compassionate, kind, and accepting towards others, qualities that endear them to a great many different types of people.  Being an Air sign, Aquarius is a natural thinker, communicator and delegator.  He will be the one who conjures up radical reforms and then trusts others to do the necessary legwork to implement them. Unfortunately, Air + Fixed = "fixed ideas" or stubbornness, a trait shared by all the fixed zodiac signs.  The good news, however, is that unlike some of the other fixed signs, Aquarius will eventually let go of outdated ideas if compelling evidence that he is wrong comes to light, a testament to his intellectual capacity and reasoning skills.  Aquarians are more "head" than "heart" people and may be considered cold or detached at times by those closest to them.  Indeed, though they have many acquaintances, Aquarians only have a handful of very close friends and confidants, choosing to remain independent and free of the obligations inherent in close relationships.  When they do form a close bond, they are among the most loyal in the zodiac, but will likely always seem a bit unemotional and distant, a characteristic that more emotional signs may find mildly annoying to completely intolerable.  As far as money is concerned, Aquarius understands that it takes money to live, and he is smart enough to keep a roof over his head, but he will most likely not spend his life in the pursuit of wealth.  As such, some Aquarians spend their lives squarely in the middle class, while others obtain wealth simply as a by-product of their creative endeavors, such as Lewis Carroll, who dreamed up Alice in Wonderland, or Thomas Edison, a prodigious inventor who thought up much more than just the light bulb.   

For those with an Aquarian child, you have an energetic, friendly, playful, and inquisitive child indeed, who will likely walk, talk, and read earlier than expected.  This is a truly unique little soul who will start showing rather marked eccentricities fairly early on.  Before stifling this in the interests of making your child "normal," remind yourself that eccentricity is often associated with genius, giftedness, and creativity.  This is your child's creative expression, regardless of how weird it seems to you, so being non-judgmental and even appreciative will go a long way in maintaining stability in the family and promoting self-esteem in the child.  Aquarius will do fairly well in school if the school manages to keep him interested, but don't be surprised if he totally rejects a teacher or class along the way because he doesn't think the teacher is gifted enough or the class is engaging enough.  There is an elitist attitude with many Aquarian kids, and once they form an opinion that something is beneath them, they will likely be unshakable in that opinion.  Despite this, your little Aquarian will be popular in school with most of his teachers and with his many friends.  Aquarians are progressive thinkers, and as such they like progressive toys, such as computers and other electronics, so give your little Aquarian all the technology you can afford, and then stand back and be amazed by his proficiency and creativity while using it.  As Aquarius approaches the teen years, expect rebellion, which may be either mild or fierce in degree.  Pre-teens and teens of any sign are usually fairly hard to handle, but Aquarius definitely has the potential to be the worst of the worst, and there will likely be a few bumpy years while your Aquarius adjusts to this difficult time in his life.  Keeping things steady at home with basic rules that everybody understands should go a long way in keeping some semblance of normalcy in the home during this time. 

Aquarius in the workplace is the one with an office decorated with his own inventions.  He is a thinker more than a doer, and will tinker with everything until he finds a better way.  He does things unconventionally, to the consternation of his more traditional bosses, but he is well-liked in the workplace and treats everyone the same, from executive to mail room.  Aquarians like a fast pace and a varied work experience, and will likely change jobs multiple times, soaking up and dissecting information along the way before finally settling into one career.   In the end, the Aquarian will usually find his niche in a progressive company that doesn't stifle his creativity, or in his own business endeavor.   For those with an Aquarius employee, give them the projects that seem to be stagnating.   Aquarius will analyze the situation and come up with a solution that  you never even dreamed of.  Count on Aquarius to be the office tech support person, as he loves to play with technology and will likely keep office equipment in tip top shape.  If Aquarius is your boss, expect the unexpected at every turn.  Nothing will be by the book under his supervision, but he will keep you on your toes and treat you respectfully and fairly at all times. 

If you have found a romantic partner in an Aquarius, you have found what appears on the surface to be a compassionate, charming, loving partner indeed, but as time goes on, you may notice a marked lack of emotional depth.  This doesn't mean that Aquarius doesn't feel true love or that he doesn't love you, but he just doesn't have the capacity to express it as well as the some of the more deeply emotional signs.  Aquarius will be rather difficult to land in the first place, as he abhors any situation in which he feels stifled or boxed in, so if you have made it into his inner circle, he must not feel that you are cramping his style, and this is something you can be proud of.  The key to making it work with an Aquarius is to give him enough space and reign in any urge to try to draw him out emotionally.  In return, your Aquarius will be true and loyal, and though he won't shower you with love poems, he will find other ways to show his appreciation.  Only strong, and emotionally independent people will succeed with an Aquarius, so if you are one who needs constant adoration, this is not the match for you. 

The best matches for sure for Aquarius are Gemini, Libra, and another Aquarius (not surprisingly all Air signs).  Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces might work for some individuals.  It will likely be tough going for Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio. 

Aquarius in any relationship is a smart, fast, fun, unconventional, and memorable character indeed.  These are sociable people who accept the flaws in others without comment, and who expect the same from you. Aquarius will usually be involved in some kind of group endeavor, whether it be a bowling league or serving lunch at the homeless shelter, and he will be known in his circle for his fairness and compassion.  You might notice that your Aquarian friend is looking away with dazed eyes as you spew your problems out to him, but be aware that he is listening and his mind is churning at that very moment for a way out of your predicament.  Though he will stop short of becoming too emotionally involved with you, you can always count on your Aquarian friend for an honest and fair assessment and unique suggestions for solving any particular problem.  All in all, your Aquarian friend will enlighten you with a unique outlook on life when he is around, and will be busy dreaming up ways to erase the world's problems when he's not!

Taurus. Yes, fits me to a "T". A friend of mine is also a Taurus and he fits the profile to a "T" as well, but would never admit it because he "doesn't believe in that stuff". Silly man.

I'm a cancer.  I'm not sure what traits I'm "supposed" to have - so I don't know if it fits me.
