She bravely tackled issues on racism, gender equality, poverty, women’s rights among others on her television program and encouraged her viewers to take action.

3. Aquarians are excellent communicators

Those born under an Air sign are gifted with the ability to process and express their thoughts quickly. Aquarians are very witty and fluent. It’s enviable how they can converse about random topics with ease and hardly ever runs out of inputs. These people learn and improve their interaction skills by observing other people.
A perfect model for this trait is talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who has been very successful because of her unique hosting skills. Other than high ratings, her show bagged Emmy awards. This famous Aquarian also got the nod of Oscars’ producers and was tapped to host it twice already.

4. Aquarians are loyal

Families and friends can attest to the high level of loyalty Aquarians are known for. Aquarius will remain by your side through all kinds of weather and stand by you in good times or bad.

These water bearers are generous with their time and resources. Aquarians never hold back when a friend or loved one knocks on their door for help.
Although Aquarians are not emotionally expressive, their acts of loyalty can contribute to the strength of their relationships.People born under this sign are very protective of their loved ones and friends. Wouldn’t it be great to have UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey for a sibling or friend?! I’m certain that this undefeated Aquarian mixed martial artist won’t let anyone walk all over you.

5. Aquarians are very independent

People born under this sign equate freedom with independence and originality. This Air sign loves to challenge rules that most of us obediently follow, creating an image that uniquely belongs to him/her. Rules and regulations make them cringe. It’s makes perfect sense that theiconic “Rebel without a Cause” James Dean is an Aquarian.
Being a fixed sign, people born in this period have a good idea of who they are and what they want. Aquarians just want to be left alone and allowed to do things their way. These people should be given as much space as possible to allow their imagination to work with little restrictions in place. The water bearers shine best when they are allowed to pursue their dreams on their own.
The flipside is Aquarians can be too independent to a fault. Although ideally, one should strive for financial and emotional independence to be able to live without strings attached, it can also lead to isolation. It would be better to allow others to assist and not to try to handle things all by themselves.

Remember….even super heroes need help sometimes.

6. Aquarians are unpredictable

People born in this period are popular for their idiosyncratic behavior. Planetary ruler Uranus could be partly to blame for their eccentric and erratic quality. This Air sign is difficult to estimate and are capable adopting abrupt changes in their lives if necessary.

Trying to predict an Aquarian’s next move is close to impossible. Their desire to be “different” and “standout in the crowd” fuels their unpredictability. These people have the penchant for shocking others with their off the wall methods at work.
Christian Bale is the epitome of unpredictability. Known for his intense mental and physical commitment to acting, he successfully managed to transform into his roles even if it required him to drop and gain weight. This Aquarian chameleon caught the eye of Christopher Nolan and casted him as Bruce Wayne in Batman Trilogy.

He never fails to surprise moviegoers and Hollywood insiders with his transformations and project choices.
