I’m not one to put all my faith into my zodiac sign, but it has bewildered me how many people have automatically judged or misunderstood me based on the fact that I am an Aquarius.
Aquarius’s are known as the unpredictable dreamers who live a little on the wild side. Now, that may not sound as bad as being a stubborn Scorpio or insecure Capricorn. However, being a dreamer can be exhausting.
We are laughed at and mocked for dreaming so wildly. Our creativity is head shaking because people don’t understand why we think the way that we do. We are misunderstood and called outlandish because we think with our rambling hearts instead of our overzealous brains.
However, being misunderstood is not always a bad thing. We can use this to our advantage Aquarius’s! So, here are five reasons why Aquarius’s are always underestimated.
1. We are constantly daydreaming and don’t see why that’s a bad thing.
I am constantly told that I need to get my head out of the clouds and focus more on reality. But where the heck is the fun in that? I want to travel the world. I want to drink tea in London and surf the waves in California. My dreams are endless and extraordinary. This doesn’t make me irresponsible or impractical. This means I have hope. It also means that my ideas are going to flourish at the office meeting, whereas somebody else will always play it safe with their ideas. Keep dreaming Aquarius’s!
2. We can be emotionally disconnected.
But that’s only because we want to separate our emotions from our work. We value our love and we don’t want to give it out to every single person that comes into our life. We pick and choose carefully to avoid getting hurt. But this doesn’t mean we are unlovable. Heck, we will probably be the best lover you’ll ever have.
3. We are constantly contradicting ourselves.
We love snow but hate being cold. We love the smell of coffee but don’t like drinking it. That’s just who we are. We make decisions quickly and run with our ideas before we have don’t have a chance to stop and think about them. That’s what makes life interesting. We don’t want anything to be mediocre and will try everything at least once. This is what leads us to contradict ourselves, but at least we know what we like and what we dislike.
4. We wear all of our emotions on our sleeves.
You will always know how we are feeling before we even say it. We aren’t pretenders and we will always tell you if you’re making us happy or hurting us. Some people hate this about us, but we don’t care. We just always want to be the best version of ourselves and we don’t think that hiding how we feel will help us be happy.
5. Everything makes us smile.
Dogs. Cute signs. A song on the radio. We love all the little things, which some people find both peculiar and annoying. We will be the first to say that a great joke has made our day. We stop for photo ops and love beautiful scents. This kind of makes us sound like we’re a bunch of free spirited hippies (I mean, we kind of are). But it also means that we will take all the time in the world to make sure that the people we love are happy. We go out of our way to do small gestures to put smiles on people’s faces. We write the best birthday cards and like little surprises.
We are unique and enlightening. We dream big and passionately. People will always misunderstand Aquarius’s because they can’t seem to relate to us. We are truly one of a kind people and want to spread our ideas and our tenderness to everyone we encounter. We don’t care if you misunderstand us because we live life in a blind array of colors (see how contradicting that was!!). But seriously, hold on to us because we will be the greatest friends and most passionate lovers you will ever encounter.
And if you’re really smart don’t ever underestimate us.
