Aquarius Dates of Birth
Is Your Zodiac Sign Really Aquarius?
Ephemeris, table of planetary positions, from the Renaissance.
Every fourth year we add a day to the calendar, the 29th of February, making that year 366 days. Actually, there's an additional rule, to make it more precise with the actual movement of earth and the sun: the starting year of a new century is not a leap year, unless it's evenly divisible by 400. So, 1900 was not a leap year, but 2000 was.
The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Aquarius starts on January 20 and ends on February 19, but that's just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.
Here are the leap years of the last century:
If you were born on the 20th of January or the 19th of February, you have to check if you're really an Aquarius or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of Aquarius is almost always on the 20th of January, and the end of it on the 18th or 19th of February. People born on other dates need not be concerned.
Cusp or not
It's particularly important with this check If you were born far away from Greenwich, England, since that's the base for the dates given for Aquarius.

If your sun is at the very end of Aquarius, you may show personality traits of both Aquarius and Pisces, but If you were born at the very start of Pisces, no matter how early in it, you're most definitely an Pisces.
That's because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.
Aquarius is the fixed air sign. That means its most typical part is the middle one - the ten degrees making its second decan, 10°-20° Aquarius. That corresponds approximately to the dates February 1-10. If your birth date is within this range, you're likely to be a very typical Aquarius.
If you were born in late January, the 21st-31st, you're still an Aquarius, but with character traits comparable to those of Libra (the cardinal air sign). If you were born on February 11-29. you have some tendencies similar to those of Gemini (the mutable air sign).
But the most important thing to decide is what sign you are. So, If you were born on January 20th or February 18th-19th, please have your correct horoscope calculated to be sure of your star sign.
