Hi friends! Welcome to the penultimate post in my series about using signs of the zodiac as inspiration for character development. This is going to be the easiest one of all, because I am such an Aquarius. Let’s take a look at the typical Aquarius personality type!

Use the personality types of zodiac signs to inspire character development in your novel. #astrology #writingtips

Here are some good qualities of an Aquarius:

humanitarian

unconventional

innovative

idealistic

curious 

imaginative

And here are some not-so-good qualities:

unpredictable

aloof

spacey

unrealistic

rebellious

prone to addictions

As a friend…

An Aquarius friend may seem detached at first, but in the long term, she’ll prove to be a faithful friend who exposes you to new ideas and adventures. She may connect with people in many walks of life through intellectual or humanitarian organizations.

As a lover…

An Aquarius partner or spouse will thrive on discussions about ideas and the future. In the bedroom, he might crave variety, and he’s up for trying just about anything.

As a parent…

She may not be the most attentive parent, and she might forget to pick her kids up from soccer practice on occasion. However, an Aquarius will encourage her children to learn and to express themselves.

As a villain…

An Aquarius villain may be an innovator and an eccentric who wants to save the human race… but he’s willing to go to terrible lengths to do it.

Here are some examples of humanitarian, unconventional, and unpredictable fictional characters!
