Aquarius Love Match
If the roots of most relationship problems are derived from irreconcilable arguments and petty disagreements, then dating an Aquarian lover maybe a sweet relief. Represented by water and having a planetary ruler which combines Saturn’s levelheadedness with Uranus’ unconventional modernity, Aquarius is a sign that is willing to compromise their logic but not their uniqueness. This means that Aquarius has the important distinction of being a person that can back down in an argument if they feel that they are wrong. Lover’s can rejoice in the easygoing nature that their Aquarian lovers own.
Despite of the most cool and logical world that the Aquarian inhabits, they are ready to kick up their heels and get down for an evening on the town. Uncomfortable in more one on one situations where their emotional side maybe left exposed and sensitive, your water lover may shy away from that type of internal exposure and trade it for a fun and “life of the party” personality. They are dynamic and interesting, and it is more useful to avoid pushing them to cry on your shoulder when hard things happen, or sit quietly discussing their emotions, but engage them on an active level. This will give them a chance to connect with you on a less risky level.
In light of this primarily lived in the exterior life, the fear of rejection can be an overwhelming concern for some Aquarius. This can mean that those under the affectionate glare of an Aquarius, will probably be completely unaware of the attention. Your Aquarian is a bit deficient in the expression department, and can sometimes be tempted to EWD (email while drunk), against the advice of their friends, or use other alternate forms of communication to convey their feelings, while avoiding face to face dialogue at all cost. This may seem charming at first but can lead to disaster, since all the cute and charming advances using beanie babies, or elaborate floral arrangements can only bring you so close to the door, in the end you have to step through it.
A hint to those interested in Aquarian men or women: Reach out and touch someone. Seriously, don’t wait for them to make the first move, you won’t be disappointed but you will be waiting a long time if you choose to force them to make the first move.
Despite their incommunicado behavior, the Aquarian is ready to kick ass and take names. Born with the fighting instinct as a natural part of their character, they need to take on causes and to lead the charge toward change, can many times translate into a fierce want to see their lover succeed. They can be like a cheerleader, pom-pom in hand, secretly directing the movement of all those around their loved one, to make sure success. But beware of the Aquarius’ inner leader, since organizing lovers and friends can lead to relationships feeling out of balance and may cause people to draw away from you.
One of the really important things to avoid allowing the Aquarius sign to do is become overly cold and removed. The inner life and intellectual pursuits that follow Aquarius can be an isolating reason and not a liberating influence. Make sure that you realize your partner do things that engage and involve them in the real world. If they have been hurt before, show them that they can trust you, and if they are afraid of being hurt, assure them that it is just part of life.
Best Match for Aquarius
As a star sign ruled by the element of Air, your safest bet, Aquarius, is probably one of the other two Air signs, i.e. GEMINI or LIBRA. The favorable 120° – or 4 signs – spacing between Zodiac signs in the same element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.
Both Gemini and Libra are good compatibility matches for Aquarius since they share Aquarius’s thinking, objective and people-oriented approach to life. However, Gemini probably just beats Libra as the better compatibility choice for Aquarius. Because Geminis value their own freedom so highly, they find it relatively easier to handle Aquarius’s strongly independent streak.
Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with logical Aquarius, while at the same time helping to galvanize it into action, are the passionate Fire signs SAGITTARIUS and ARIES, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Aquarius. Many believe this kind of Air-Fire combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac signs apart.
So what about another AQUARIUS as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with an Aquarius of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Aquarian qualities – like their friendliness, intelligence and originality. But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Aquarius people – most likely their unpredictability and perversity – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!
Worst Match for Aquarius
The truth is, Aquarius, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their star sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.
For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the star signs of TAURUS and SCORPIO. Because both these signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 sign spacing) from Aquarius, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work.
Of these two star signs, Scorpio just qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Aquarius. Due to its compulsive need for freedom and its highly rebellious nature, Aquarius may find it harder than most other signs to cope with Scorpio’s unrelenting quest for power and dominance.
Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Aquarius, such as CANCER, may also present more minor compatibility challenges. Traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships probably won’t be your first choice, but then neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in some cases a love match could work out fine!
Why Opposites Attract
Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Aquarius, what you’re really looking for, from a star sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. LEO, can be a great compatibility match for you, Aquarius. Opposite star signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole.
