AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius, the eleventh sign in the zodiac, is independent and mysterious. They deeply care about social justice and making the world a better place, and see themselves as just one link in an endless human chain. Aquarians are rebels, they despise authority and anything that represents conventionality. Free-spirited and eccentric, they can often be identified by their offbeat fashion sensibilities, unusual hobbies, and nonconformist attitude.
On the other hand, these signs may be temperamental, uncompromising or reserved.
With all that said, let's check out what careers would be the best fit for this zodiac sign.
