Aquarius Compatibility

Are you an Aquarius in love? Are you in love with an Aquarius? What do the stars have in store for you?

Aquarians are free-spirited beings and live life spontaneously, setting their own rules as they go. They are very social and quick to develop meaningful friendships.

When it comes to love, Aquarius has a difficult time expressing emotion and building connections deep enough to sustain a lasting connection. They require freedom to pursue their interests which can sometime cause jealousy and insecurity in their significant other.

In order to have a long-lasting relationship with Aquarius, their love interest must understand their need for adventure and excitement.The only way to win the heart of an Aquarian is to cater to their needs and never let life get boring. It can be a challenge, but the effort will be well worth it in the end.

But what star signs are the most compatible for Aquarius? Who makes the best partners for these freedom-loving characters?

The Aquarius man is liked by almost everyone he meets. He has a great sense of humor and his view of life is free-spirited and adventurous. He is likely to be the life of every party and makes friends easily.

In the love arena, however, the Aquarian has a difficult time expressing emotion and committing to a relationship. He makes his own rules and doesn’t follow conventional wisdom in dating or marriage. He has to have a deep friendship with any woman he will consider falling in love with…and the falling in love part doesn’t happen easily.

The Aquarius man needs space, so don’t try to tie him down. He will run for the hills if he feels you are trying to stifle him. He may sometimes be moody, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care. Give him time to work it out and he’ll be back to his fun-loving self in no time. It might be hard for him to fall in love, but once he does, he will be sure to dote on his partner and give her a good time.

Aquarius Woman
Free-spirited and friendly but emotionally elusive

The Aquarius woman has a friendly, outgoing personality that makes her easy to like. She is free-spirited and finds it difficult to settle down or express herself emotionally. Being friends with her is easy, but often romantic relationships can be quite difficult.

Aquarian women love to meet new people, but will be unlikely to stray too far away from her beliefs and preferences. She has a stubborn side that will not be told that her way of thinking is wrong. A potential lover will not be able to control her or change who she is. If he tries, she will walk away without giving it a second thought.

If you are interested in an Aquarian woman, work on becoming her friend first. It is crucial that she creates a friendship bond with you before she falls in love. She needs her significant other to be her best friend and will often maintain a deep friendship even after the love relationship is over. She is loyal and devoted to the people in her life.

While Aquarians may seem self-centered at times, it is her strong, independent nature that makes her attractive. She seems to make her own rules and her air of confidence is alluring.

What Zodiac signs make ideal partners for Aquarius?
Which star signs are the most compatible with the Water Bearer?

Aquarians are well matched with Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, other Aquarians and possibly Pisces.

Aquarius and Aries both love to laugh and have fun. They will be the best of friends before they become lovers. This air of friendship and their enjoyment of social activities will keep their relationship thriving for a long time.

Aquarius and Gemini have an intense sexual relationship that keeps them together and may maintain the relationship all the way to marriage. As long as they both know when to walk away from a disagreement, their relationship should be a strong, long-lasting romance.

Aquarius and Libra are the ideal love connection. They are very attracted to each other physically and intellectually. They will share many adventures together and form a strong bond. They both tend to shy away from emotions, so they are content with each other and insecurity tends to not be a problem.

Aquarius and Sagittarius are both independent and adventurous types, so an exciting relationship is bound to ensue. They will have many fun times together and their mutual desire to travel and explore new places will keep their love life interesting and fulfilling.

Aquarius and Aquarius will challenge each other and give each other the freedom to pursue their individual interests and goals. They will have a highly satisfying sex life. Their mutual spontaneity will lead to many fun adventures together.

Aquarius and Pisces are able to form a deep bond and a lasting romantic connection – but only IF they are both willing to work at it. They will always be able to find something to talk about and their sexual relationship will be exciting.

Star signs that are incompatible with Aquarius
These Zodiac signs are NOT a good match for Aquarius

Aquarians should avoid relationships with Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Leo, Cancer, and Scorpio.

Aquarius and Taurus may start out strong due to attraction of opposites, but the relationship will quickly lose its spark. Socially, they have nothing in common and Taurus needs a secure commitment that Aquarius won’t be able to give.

Aquarius and Cancer will want different things in a relationship. Cancer is a little insecure and needs a lot of personal attention while Aquarius doesn’t show affection very easily and needs independence. This difference will be too much to overcome and the relationship won’t last.

Aquarius and Leo both desire the spotlight, so competing for attention will cause jealousy and create a rift between them. Their friendship will most likely never become a love affair…and if it does, it will be based on sex and most likely end quickly.

Aquarius and Virgo are not a match made in heaven. They may have an excellent friendship, but they are just too different to have a lasting love connection. Virgo is organized and loves when things are predictable, while Aquarius could never be restricted by a schedule.

Aquarius and Scorpio will rarely be able to share a long term commitment. Scorpio is ambitious and focused while Aquarius is spontaneous and unpredictable. The former will try to bring the latter under control and that’s where the relationship will come to a quick end.

Aquarius and Capricorn do well together professionally due to their shared work ethic, but they aren’t so lucky in love. Capricorn takes a long time to ease into a relationship and Aquarius will not have the patience to wait. They are polar opposites in social situations and life ambitions.

The perfect Aquarius date
How to woo an Aquarius

Aquarians are highly social and love to talk, so keep that in mind when planning the perfect date.

An intimate dinner date will be the perfect setting for intense conversation, just be prepared to be more of a listener than a talker. Aquarius will most likely dominate in the talking department.

A group setting such as a charity event or social gathering will be the perfect first date for Aquarius. Emotional connection is difficult for this starsign, so a public venue will take some pressure off and ensure a fun time for both parties.

Introducing Aquarius – “I Know”
January 19 – February 18
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the Zodiac and its symbol (or glyph), two wavy lines, represents the Water Bearer and the life-giving properties of water that are poured out onto the earth from the heavens.

In Western astrology, Aquarius is considered to be a “masculine”, positive and extrovert sign, along with the other five odd-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aries.

Aquarius is an ancient constellation that is located between Capricorn and Pisces. It can be found in the area of the sky called “The Sea” because of its proximity to other water-related constellations, such as Cetus and Eridanus.

Aquarius is also known as the Water Carrier.

The story of Aquarius the Water Bearer
The constellation of Aquarius
The ancient Greek myth that tells the story of the constellation of Aquarius centers around a handsome young man named Ganymede, son of Tros (the king of Troy). Attracted by the boys’ beautiful features, the god Zeus turned himself into an eagle, swooped down to capture young Ganymede and carried him off to the heavens.

Ganymede was made the cup-bearer to the gods, bringing water and wine to the deities whenever summoned. As the story goes, the boy became tired of being a slave, so in a fit of rage he began pouring out all the liquid in the heavens. So much water and wine fell to earth that it created a worldwide flood.

Zeus was angered by Ganymede’s act of defiance, but he had a soft spot in his heart for the beautiful child. Instead of punishing him with death, he gave him a place among the stars, where he would forever immortalize the figure of the water bearer.

The ruling planet of Aquarius
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, which represents creativity, originality, inventiveness and progressive thinking.

The Elements
Aquarius is an Air Sign
Aristotelian Elements The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.

The Element of Aquarius is “Air” which it shares, and is compatible, with Gemini and Libra.

The Element of Air symbolizes flexibility and experiencing life through knowledge instead of emotion. It represents good communication and social skills, imagination, kindness and rebellion.

The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable and signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.

The Quality determines the basis for an individual’s temperament. Those with a certain Quality will tend to have dominating characteristics that are deeply ingrained and unchanged throughout their life. Each Quality views the world in a different way and reacts to stimuli differently so that their reasoning and actions may be contradictory to the other Qualities.

The Quality of Aquarius is “Fixed”
The Fixed Quality is solid, steady and strong. They believe in acheiving their goals and will work toward end results until they are achieved, no matter how long it takes or what they have to overcome.

On the flip side, Fixed signs can be stubborn and unwilling to change or bend to suit the needs of others.

Leo, Taurus and Scorpio are also Fixed signs and are therefore less likely to be compatible with Aquarius.

What’s to like about Aquarius?
Aquarians love to be unique and inventive. They are independent and often forge the way for others.

Those born in Aquarius are true intellects and never miss a chance to further their knowledge. They view life through facts and logic rather than giving into their emotions and feelings.

The negative side of Aquarius
What’s to loathe about Aquarius?
Aquarians can come across as emotionally detached and distant. It’s not that that they are unemotional, they just have a hard time expressing their feelings.

Those born under the starsign Aquarius can also seem stubborn, difficult and rebellious at times.

Aquarius Careers
What would you be good at Aquarius?
Aquarians are hard-working, focused and very intellectual. They desire respect and stability and they love to share the things they know with others. However, they do not like to be tied down, so careers in flexible fields that offer opportunities to experience new places are desirable to Aquarius.

Great careers for Aquarius include: teacher, professor or tutor, business owner, hotel or restaurant management, musician or actor, social worker, freelance writer or scientist.

Aquarius’ Lucky Number is 4
