♒ Aquarius emoji

[ uh-kwair-ee-uhs ih-moh-jee ]

The Aquarius emoji ♒ depicts the sign of Aquarius, a constellation and one of the 12 zodiac signs in astrology. It is commonly used to represent Aquarius, people whose zodiac sign is Aquarius, and astrology in general. According to astrology, people who were born between January 20 and February 18 have Aquarius as their sign. For this reason, you’re more likely to see the Aquarius emoji ♒ used during this time as people celebrate their birthdays.

Aquarius is commonly known as The Water Bearer or The Water Carrier. In Latin, Aquarius literally means “water-carrier,” from the Latin aqua meaning “water.” The Aquarius emoji ♒ usually depicts the symbol of Aquarius, two squiggly lines that represent waves of water.

Where does ♒ Aquarius emoji come from?

emoji symbol of Aquarius

The Aquarius emoji ♒ was approved under Unicode 1.1 in 1993. On most major platforms, the emoji resembles the symbol of Aquarius (a glyph that depicts two wavy lines representing water) in white and imposed on a geometric shape. On Apple, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook, the Aquarius symbol is on a purple square with rounded corners. On Microsoft, the purple square has sharp corners and is surrounded by a black outline. On Google, the Aquarius symbol is instead on a purple circle.

On Twitter, many people put the emoji representing their star sign next to their usernames in order to identify themselves. As is the case with all of the other zodiac signs, this is also true for the Aquarius emoji ♒.

When the Aquarius emoji ♒ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Aquarius itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology. The sign Aquarius is commonly known as The Water Bearer, and so it is often used alongside the Water Wave emoji 🌊 and/or the Amphora emoji 🏺 (an amphora is a large jar that was used to hold liquids in ancient history).
