Alicia Augello Cook, more commonly known as Alicia Keys, was born in New York on January 25, 1981.
The multi-Grammy-winning recording artiste, actress, and philanthropist is an Aquarius. According to Astrologers, Aquarians are born between dates January 20 and February 18. Alicia Keys, like other Aquarians, are ruled by the planet Uranus.
Aquarius is an air sign; meaning Aquarians are usually unconventional and unpredictable.
Traits of An Aquarius
Aquarians usually exhibit paradoxical or competing characteristics. As much as they are team players, they are also highly individualistic and like their own space.
They tend to be somewhat aloof in their feelings, however, they are empaths, are sensitive, and tend to be great philanthropists.
Dubbed the planet of surprise, Uranus as Aquarius’ ruler, influences change, disruption, and the unexpected. This also means Aquarians have personality types generally going against the status quo.
Common words used to describe Aquarians are ambitious, original, affable, and self-reliant. They are also the humanitarians of the zodiac, caring about the world and those who live in it.
An Aquarian Manifested
Alicia Keys, an accomplished musician, and classically trained pianist embodies many of the traits common among Aquarians. She forges her own path, is original and is a bit eccentric with her own style.
Having been signed by Columbia Records at the tender age of 15, Alicia Keys very soon afterward decided to break ties with the company.
This came about as a result of her constantly butting heads with their creative team and not being able to make music as she envisioned, and promoting the image she had of herself.
Choosing to stick to her guns and remaining true to her art instead of the cookie-cutter model of entertainment industry norms proved life-changing for Alicia Keys.
Within one year of leaving Columbia Records, Alicia quickly distinguished herself as not only an artiste to watch but a chart-topper and multi-award-winning phenom.
In 2019, Alicia Keys was the first woman in 14 years to host the Grammy Awards.
The Sign Of The Future
Susan Miller in her Astrology Zone column where she writes horoscopes has that Aquarius is considered the sign of the future.
The Age of Aquarius is defined as the existing qualities of Aquarians which will shape the future.
They are visionaries, the creatives among us, and likely to invent groundbreaking technology that will propel us even further into the future.
Being communicators and knowledge seekers; willing to challenge authority and influence and promote change Aquarians have already made significant contributions to our world.
Consider scientists Darwin, Lewis Carrol, Nicolaus Copernicus, and Thomas Edison who were all on the cutting edge of new thinking; they were all Aquarians.
Other notable Aquarians are Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Elijah Wood, and Kerry Washington.
