Aquarius is the last air sign in the Zodiac, but that’s not the only reason it stands out. Aquarians are known for being intelligent, creative, and idealistic, which means they’re always seeking the next big idea or project. Understanding your horoscope can help you learn more about your place in the world and what matters most as you build your future. Here’s a list of Aquarius celebrities who’ve done just that — to inspire you as you tackle your next big adventure.
Jennifer Aniston (February 11)
Jennifer Aniston gained fame on Friends, a popular sitcom about twenty-somethings making their way in mid-nineties New York. Early on, she became known for setting trends and making creative statements — who could forget her iconic Rachel hairstyle? The Aquarius star has been married to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. That said, one of the things Aniston is most known for is her independence and self-reliance. The intellect she brings to her roles is unsurprising for someone who falls under the Aquarius sign.
Oprah Winfrey (January 29)
When it comes to big ideas and big plans, no one does it better than Oprah Winfrey. Over the course of her 40-plus year career, she’s been writer, host, actor, philanthropist, and much more. She’s produced numerous films, among them Beloved and A Wrinkle in Time, as well as The Color Purple on Broadway — based on the book and the film in which she starred. Those who fall under the Aquarius sign are known for their resilience, and Winfrey — who has overcome numerous obstacles on her path to success — is the perfect example of that resilience.
Ellen DeGeneres (January 26)
Another notable name in television and talk shows is Ellen DeGeneres. Her coming out story was deeply personal and very public, setting an example of identity and truth for those watching yet another display of Aquarius’ resilience. Aquarius signs are often related to themes of bestowing and giving life, as represented by the water bearer — though it should be acknowledged that she recently faced criticism for her treatment of her employees and guests.
Shakira (February 2)
Shakira is a singer-songwriter whose Lebanese and Colombian roots play a significant role in her identity and art. She has been called The Queen of Latin Music, and has produced several records and songs in Spanish. Her ability to dream big and add intellect and rationale to her goals is just one of the ways Shakira embodies the Aquarius sign.
