Usually runs from January 20 to February 18 (depending on the year), Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac. Despite being symbolized by a water-bearer, it is actually an air sign and is ruled by Uranus, the planet known in astrology that represents “disruption and revolution.” And according to an article published in cosmpolitan.com in 2022, this means that people born within this period are “basically a rebel with a cause.”
It is said to be the sign that is “most closely associated with humanitarianism,” as Aquarians do not care only about their loved ones so much, but to the society as well. They are likely to engage in organizations that allow them to use their knowledge and voice, as well as lend their hands in resolving the problems of the world. Besides, they’re also known to be passionate, creative, optimistic, reliable, progressive, free-spirited, and eccentric, which we find really admirable.
As Aquarius season draws to a close, let’s find out how our favorite Kapamilya celebrities who were born during this period absolutely embody their zodiac sign.
Richard Gutierrez, January 21
Despite being one of the biggest stars in the local entertainment scene, Richard is able to keep his enigmatic persona, like his The Iron Heart character Apollo. He may seem a little aloof for us who are just onlookers on his life, but his Instagram posts show how much he gives importance to people dear to his heart, especially his family. During his time off work, he usually spends his free time with his wife Sarah Lahbati and their kids Zion and Kai by going on vacations and doing activities they love to do together, such as camping, beach and nature trips, and motocross and biking.
While it is deemed impossible to find true and lasting romantic relationships in the industry that they’re both in, but their love and loyalty to one another have indeed made them strong in the past decade that they have been together.
Francine Diaz, January 27
She may appear reticent and reserved at first look, but Francine is actually a kooky girl, especially when she’s with people she is comfortable with, like her family and friends. Her bubbly personality and innate sense of humor makes her truly endearing, which is extremely different to her character Chiara in Dirty Linen.
At a young age, she’s able to impress us with how passionate she is with her craft and with how plain smart she is when it comes to responding to questions thrown at her during interviews. Aside from her talent and dedication, we also admire how family-oriented she is as she does everything she could in order to provide for them and make them happy.
Janine Berdin, January 28
While she may appear enigmatic and standoffish for some, but many people adore Janine with how she can be adorably eccentric. From the very first time that we had seen her performance in Tawag ng Tanghalan as a mere aspiring singer from Cebu, we already felt that there’s something unique in her, which she’s able to prove when she won the second season of the competition and went on to become one of the fast-rising artists of her generation.
Aside from regularly impressing us with her song numbers on ASAP Natin ‘To every Sunday and in her other media appearances, she’s also able to amaze us with her artistry and ability to think outside the box through her original music and her collaborations with other artists.
Ian Veneracion, February 7
He may have this mysterious and serious aura, but you’ll surely be surprised when you find out that Ian is actually a fun-loving and spontaneous person. As we go through his posts on IG and watch his interviews, we could see that he’s actually a cool person who loves to have fun with his family and friends to whom he’s been loyal with and do various adrenaline-inducing outdoor activities.
Just in case you do not know yet, aside from being an actor and a musician, the The Iron Heart actor also is a certified adrenaline junkie as he’s into riding on his big bike, sailing and recreational fishing, scuba diving, skydiving and paragliding, and flying private planes, not to mention that he is licensed to the latter four. Now in he’s late 40s, Ian is indeed one free-spirited kilabotito!
Angel Aquino, February 7
Aside from her youthful splendor, another thing that we admire about Angel is her versatile acting prowess that she’s able to show through her compelling portrayals in the series and movies that she stars in. Ever since her career took off in the late 90s, we’ve witnessed how she has been passionate about her craft and has never been afraid to take on challenging and unconventional roles, such as the ones she played in “Glorious” (2018), FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano (2017), and now Dirty Linen.
Furthermore, we also adore for being a progressive thinker, to which Aquarians are said to be known for the most, as she eagerly champions for the advocacies and political beliefs that she believes in. What an inspiring woman, indeed!
Kylie Versoza, February 7
And speaking of inspiring woman, Kylie can be considered one, too. Well, her beauty, eloquence, and grace got her crowned as Binibining Pilipinas-International and Miss International in 2016. A certified visionary, she uses her platform to advocate on mental health awareness, and even founded Mental Health Matters, an online support group that aims to provide emotional support and counselling to people who are experiencing depression, anxiety disorder, and other forms of mental illnesses for free.
Aside from being a beauty queen and a humanitarian, she has also dabbled to acting and has amazed s with her performances, such as in her first-ever regular teleseye gig, Precious Hearts Romances Presents Los Bastardos in 2018. And six years after representing the Philippines to a prestigious, she once again had the chance to represent the country again in the Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards last year, wherein she got to take home the Best Actress trophy for her award-winning performance in the movie “The Housemaid.”
Donny Pangilinan, February 10
Despite coming from one of the biggest and most influential clans in the country, Donny is still able to carve his own path and step out of the shadows of his famous parents Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel Laxa, as well as of his other prominent kin. We have witnessed him go through a series of changes throughout his career, but he’s able to overcome those and become one of the most popular and bankable actors of his generation.
Aside from being his good looks, impressive wit, and promising talents, another thing that we find admirable and awesome about him is how an athletic and adventurous person he is. The He’s Into Her leading doesn’t only play basketball and mobile just like guys his age, but he also loves to take on thrilling adventures, such as motorcycle and 4x4 riding, skydiving, snowboarding, and cycling. Besides, he plays tennis, too.
Lovi Poe, February 11
Another actress that we adore is Lovi, who’s also able to make a name for herself in industry in spite of being the daughter of the one and only “Da King of Philippine Movies” Fernando Poe Jr. While it is indeed a privilege, but she has managed to work her way to where she as present and became a star in her own right through her dedication, hardwork and talents.
Going through her Instagram posts and even interviews, we can say that the FPJ’s Batang Quiapo leading lady is such a cool, spontaneous, and free-spirited person who delights on taking on different, new adventures. ne
John Prats, February 14
It’s definitely not surprising to know that John is indeed an Aquarius baby because of how totally talented he is. Apart from being an actor, host, and dancer, he has also proven his flair as a director for TV, movies, and concerts in the over three decades that he’s been in the industry. And he has done a great job in further exhibiting his creativity, originality, and passion as an artist through his successful works.
But more than those roles, the still most significant of all is being a husband and dad to his wife Isabel Oli and their three children Feather, Freedom, and Forest. His schedule may get hectic sometimes, but the It’s Showtime “Girl On Fire hataw royalty“ makes sure to still spend quality time with them.
Anne Curtis, February 17
And last, but definitely not the least, is Anne, who has already shown different facets of her through the almost three decades that she’s been in showbiz. We have already seen her act, host, sing, and dance through her various television stints, with It’s Showtime as her longest. Now in her late 30s and has a family of her own, she has remained unstoppable in doing the things that she’s truly passionate about, such as working in front of the camera, joining marathons, staying fit, and supporting various causes.
Apart from her deific beauty and amazing talents, another thing that we admire about her is how eloquent, witty, graceful, optimistic, and kooky she could be, which we really find endearing. While Aquarians are believed to have the “tendency to get too wrapped up in their careers,” but not Anne as she opted to go on an indefinite leave to take care of her and husband Erwan Heussaff’s little daughter, Dahlia, and always chooses them first over everything, just like every housewife does.
