We know how special your birthday is, so we’re sharing a monthly run-down of everything you should wear, read, watch, and do to celebrate your big day. Tune in every month as we share a guide to having the best birthday month, all according to your zodiac sign.

Anyone who shares a sign with Harry Styles is bound to be a star; we don’t make the rules. Aquarians are the free-spirit, eccentric lovers of the Zodiac that we can’t get enough of. They love to have a good time and absolutely deserve it during their birthday month. Can’t choose how to celebrate this year? We have some ideas.

What to Do



1. Get takeout from somewhere new

We’re just about entering junior year of a pandemic, so to avoid some of that fatigue, embrace all the best parts of spending more time at home. Throw it on back to the beginning of 2020 when ordering takeout felt exciting by ordering from somewhere new for a change. Put on a new movie and your coziest socks and revel in not knowing the next time you’ll have to go outside.


2. Call up a long-distance friend

Although your free spirit might point to the opposite, Aquarians are inherently friendly and all about keeping their relationships strong. While you’re raking in all those “HBD!” texts, use it as an excuse to have a few phone/FaceTime dates with people you don’t get to see very often. Keeping in touch with your far-away friends will make you feel instantly rejuvenated (and loved, of course). 


3. Make your doctors’ appointments for the year

Aquarians are not a fan of authority, so “adulting” tasks tend to bore them. But once they finally get them done, they can kick their feet up and celebrate their birthday without any cares in the world. First on the list? Scheduling a year’s worth of doctors’ appointments in advance, like dental cleanings, skin checks, physicals, and vision tests.
