Although you're a social sign, Aquarius, you're not the type who enjoys being the center of attention. As a result, on your birthday you might celebrate casually with a group of friends, but you'd feel just as comfortable working the night at your favorite soup kitchen or on your latest humanitarian cause. You are definitely the altruistic type! As long as your personal space is respected, you'll go out of your way to help mankind.
The most unique party in town
While it's true that you have your pulse on the most visionary of concepts, you also have the reputation for being offbeat -- even weird -- in your approach to life. The good news is that you're an incredibly strong-willed individual. But at the same time, you might be uncompromising and rebellious -- especially when you sense any threat to your personal freedom. When you need breathing room and ask someone to give you space, you tend to mean it ... even if it's on your birthday!

Some may accuse you of being cold or detached ... and at times this might be the case. If this happens, however, it's usually because you prefer not to reveal yourself until you've decided someone is worthy of something more than a superficial alliance. Once you've made that judgment, you'll be a loyal friend through thick and thin. If your pals or relatives are planning a special birthday surprise for you, you may not get all gushy and sentimental about it, but that doesn't mean their gesture hasn't affected you. You may not wear your heart on your sleeve, but you certainly have feelings that run deep. True, you might be a little strange sometimes, but you're also always authentic.
