They’re bohemian. They’re unconventional. They’re humanitarian. That’s how astrology expert Susie Cox, in her book Susie’s Sun Signs, describes Aquarians. But she could very well be describing one Robert Nesta Marley, a.k.a. Bob Marley, born on February 6th. Because what is this reggae legend if not bohemian, unconventional and humanitarian?

“The ultimate Aquarian contribution is your love of humanitarian causes,” Cox writes. “Your sign knows that if many gather together with one purpose in mind, change will occur.” That single statement defines the social unity Marley preached throughout his too-brief life. There’s no separating his music from his spirituality and Rastafarian beliefs. Remember his lyrics to One Love? “One Love! One Heart! Let’s get together and feel all right,” he sang. Or his One Love Peace Concert in Kingston, Jamaica? At that 1978 event, held in the midst of a civil war, Marley himself joined the hands of Michael Manley and Edward Seaga, the leaders of the country’s two opposing parties. “[Aquarians] say, ‘Everything is perfect,’” continues Cox. “It’s all meant to be. Just let it go.’” Or in Marley’s words: “Don’t worry about a thing cause every little thing is gonna be alright.”
