Ruled by the planet of Uranus, these individuals are intelligent, get easily repelled by non-intellectual crowds, are crowd-pullers and enjoy a holistic lifestyle. Their bright spirit attracts hordes of people around them and they easily create a mutually compassionate bond with people they care about. However, the flipside to these personalities is that they find it difficult to take a stand in life.

Health
People born on this birth date usually suffer from stress-related problems and fatigue due to their quick-paced, exciting lifestyle. Their physical and mental health are outstandingly in concurrence to their emotions and they are thus, more equipped to cope with illnesses than their other counterparts. These people need to have a balanced diet and rest adequately for an enriching life.

Finance

Relationships, Marriage & Children
Unlike their other counterparts, these Aquarians are not very affected if they do not find the loves of their lives easily and are not too particular about commitment.
