    21 Characters Who Are Living In The Age Of Aquarius

    Shoutout to everyone born between January 20th and February 18th!

    1. Dorothy Zbornak (Golden Girls)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: January 31st, 1929

    I would've pegged Sophia as the Aquarian, but Dorothy is a top-notch Golden Girl, and Aquarians everywhere should be happy to have her. She's smart, sassy, and the queen of the side-eye.

    2. Lily Potter (Harry Potter)

    Warner Bros. / Via

    Birthday: January 30th, 1960

    We should all be super proud to have this woman on our astrological team. Before she sacrificed herself like the badass woman she is, Lily was known for being smart and strong-willed. She fought for the things she believed in and was loved by everyone who met her.

    3. DJ Tanner-Fuller (Full/Fuller House)

    Netflix / Via

    Birthday: February 9th, 1977

    A little surprised by this one, TBH. Donna Jo doesn't exhibit a lot of common Aquarian attributes. She's super "Type A" like Daddy Danny T. However, she's kind and caring and loves animals SO WE WILL TAKE HER PROUDLY.

    4. Dwight Schrute (The Office)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: January 20, 1977

    Dwight and I both love Battlestar Galactica, so I can't say I'm surprised. He's certainly original and uncompromising, two Aquarius traits. He can be intense, but we want him on our side if there's ever an astrological-based war. Fun Fact: Rainn Wilson was also born on January 20th, but 10 years earlier, which is... odd.

    5. Arthur Weasley (Harry Potter)

    Warner Bros. / Via

    Birthday: February 6th, 1950

    He's eccentric, curious, brave (Gryffindor, duh), and an excellent lover (I assume based on his 47 children). If this isn't an Aquarius, I don't know what is.

    6. Arthur Curry (Aquaman)

    Warner Bros. / Via

    Birthday: January 29th

    It's no surprise that the "The King of the Seven Seas" is a WATER-BEARER. I would be legit offended if the folks at D.C. gave him a different birthday. What else is there to say? Enjoy this pic of Jason Momoa's body.

    7. Jess Day (New Girl)

    FOX / Via

    Birthday: February 13th

    She's unique, she's whimsical, and she can occasionally be a ~bit much~. C-L-A-S-S-I-C Aquarius. In her own words: "I like being weird."

    8. Zoe Washburne (Firefly)

    FOX / Via

    Birthday: February 15th, 2484

    Legit stoked that I share a birthday with this QUEEN, even if she is 494 years younger than me. Honestly, I would've pegged her hubby (RIP) as more of the Aquarius type, but it's possible that personality types changed after all the planet expansions and devastating wars. Zoe is BADASS, independent, and loyal AF. WE WILL TAKE HER.

    9. Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)

    Orion Pictures / Via

    Birthday: January 20, 1933

    While I wouldn't choose to be lumped in with a cannibal, he was at least a successful psychiatrist... So, you know, it's not all terrible.

    10. Phoebe Buffay (Friends)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: February 16th, 1967

    This one is OBVIOUS. Phoebs marches to the beat of her own drum, she's quirky, and it takes her a while to settle down. She's also honest, unpredictable, and has a tendency to go off-track. If there was an Aquarian overlord, it would be Phoebe Buffay. (I guess this makes Ursula an Aquarius, too, but we took a poll and we're shunning her.)

    11. Jack Bauer (24)

    FOX / Via

    Birthday: February 18th, 1966

    Jack cannot catch a break, so he tends to lean into the more negative Aquarius qualities. He's a bit detached and quite an adrenaline junkie, but he's saved a whole lot of people... like, in one day.

    12. Dawn Schafer (The Baby-Sitters Club)

    Columbia Pictures / Via

    Birthday: February 5th

    Dawn served as the Alternate Officer in TBSC, which means she took over the job of whoever didn't show up to a meeting. Jumping into a position is ~very~ Aquarius. She embraces her individuality AND her first words were "Wa-Wa", so she was clearly a water-bearer from the beginning.

    13. Ernie (Sesame Street)

    PBS / Via

    Birthday: January 28th

    Ernie loves to laugh and is a loyal BFF. He's silly, enjoys singing about inanimate objects, and doesn't have the best attention span. He is an Aquarius in Muppet form.

    14. Olivia Benson (Law & Order: SVU)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: February 7th

    A strong leader with a rough past, Olivia is one badass lady. She's empathetic, smart AF, and BOY does she know how to hold on to a job. Fun Fact: Mariska Hargitay was born on January 23, 1964 making her a REAL LIFE Aquarius.

    15. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)

    Warner Bros. / Via

    Birthday: February 13th, 1981

    Luna might be the most eccentric student at Hogwarts, never wavering from her strong beliefs, no matter how bizarre. She makes some people uncomfortable, but once she's your friend, she's your friend for life. The Quibbler might as well have been called "The magazine for Aquariuses, by Aquariuses".

    16. Ilana Wexler (Broad City)

    Comedy Central / Via

    Birthday: Unknown

    While Ilana's IRL birthday is April 12th, the character has not been given a set date of birth. However, it's clear to Aquarians everywhere that she belongs to us. She's a free spirit with wacky tendencies who is notoriously non-committal. Come on, now.

    17. Princess Anna (Frozen)

    Disney / Via

    Birthday: Unknown

    If you dive deep into the Disney archives, you'll discover that Anna was born on the Summer Solstice, so she can't actually be an Aquarius. However, since no date is confirmed, I'm taking this matter into my own hands and stealing her. She's resourceful, sarcastic, open-minded, and incredibly independent. WE NEED HER!

    18. Frankie Bergstein (Grace and Frankie)

    Netflix / Via

    Birthday: October 12, 1945

    Well, Frankie is a confirmed Libra, but I don't buy it. The fact that she's an air sign makes sense, and I suppose she has the selfless tendencies of a Libra, but her struggles with indecision and her free spirit indicate that the writers may have mislabeled her. Frankie is probably WELL-VERSED in astrology and I'm inclined to think she'd agree with this assessment.

    19. Yoda

    Lucasfilm / Via

    Birthday: Unknown

    Yoda is the perfect blend of goofy and wise. He's typically giving some life-changing advice, but it can be hard to decipher the odd ramblings of a 900-year-old Jedi. While people in the galaxy far, far away might not know about astrology, we do in this galaxy, so I proclaim Yoda ONE OF US.

    20. Michael (The Good Place)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: Unknown

    Michael started off as evil, but his willingness to change and his ability to make big/weird ideas happen makes him a great Aquarian candidate. He's dapper and silly and we look forward to seeing whatever wacky things he has brewing.

    21. Li'l Sebastian (Parks and Rec)

    NBC / Via

    Birthday: Unknown

    We know everyone's favorite mini-horse was born in 1986 (RIP), but the actual date is unspecified. However, based on the fact that he captured the hearts of an entire town with his charm and adorable nature leads me to believe that this tiny, deceased horse was born water-carrier.
