This is how Aquarius gets along with others, based only on their Sun signs. These are compatibility interpretations for all 12 possible combinations with Aquarius.
Yes, this is a limited and incomplete way to determine compatibility. But, Sun-sign compatibility is still the base for overall harmony in a relationship. We explained this in one of our synastry lessons where we said that it’s best to start with compatible Sun-sign elements.
The rule of thumb is this: yin and yang do not see eye to eye. Yin goes with yin, and yang goes with yang. While relationships between yin and yang can succeed, they require more work. The earth and water zodiac signs are yin. The fire and air zodiac signs are yang.
Aquarius and Aries
A relationship between Aquarius and Aries can come to bear good fruit. Both members should have patience. Aries and Aquarius both have a need for freedom and independence. In this, they will understand each other. The difficulties will come from the impetuous and abrupt way in which Aries acts, because Aquarius requires more time and security before acting upon something.
Aquarius and Taurus
A relationship between Aquarius and Taurus is one that can bear fruit with a lot of work and a huge dose of patience. Their natures collide with respect to the freedom and independence of Aquarius, as opposed to Taurus’s focus on home and relationship. But if each one yields a little, they may come to understand that there are times when each of them need to be alone, without implying that they stopped loving each other.
Aquarius and Gemini
Aquarius and Gemini can form a very good relationship. They will understand each other in almost everything. They are both sociable and can enjoy spending time with friends. Occasionally, Gemini may feel overlooked when Aquarius gives attention to others, but this issue will not endanger the relationship. Creativity will be the order of the day.
Aquarius and Cancer
A relationship between Aquarius and Cancer is not very viable. Aquarius’s free and independent nature will not tolerate Cancer’s constant demands for love. Aquarius will not be able to reassure the partner, nor provide safety and security in the relationship. Cancer’s outbursts will be noticed right away. Aquarius will flee to its beloved friends.
Aquarius and Leo
A relationship between Aquarius and Leo can be difficult to get off the ground if Aquarius does not learn, from the start, how to handle Leo with flattery. Aquarius is not prone to this type of strategy. Aquarius is interested in creating and inventing, instead of wasting time assuring their Leo partner that they are the best in the universe. Leo will hardly accept the emotional indifference of Aquarius.
Aquarius and Virgo
A relationship between Aquarius and Virgo can work, but after a lot of effort. Virgo is too demanding for Aquarius: Virgo restricts Aquarius’s freedom. Aquarius is too unstable and irresponsible for Virgo: Aquarius exacerbates Virgo’s need for organization and control. This will require a lot of patience and dedication.
Aquarius and Libra
Aquarius and Libra will build a good relationship because they understand each other’s basic needs. They will both be able to sit down and talk to iron out any rough spots. Libra enjoys, and has fun with, Aquarius’s witty ideas. Aquarius finds Libra’s sweetness soothing.
Aquarius and Scorpio
A relationship between Aquarius and Scorpio is possible, but will demand great tolerance on the part of both members. Scorpio is too rigid and structured to understand the need for freedom and movement that drives Aquarius. If Scorpio does not soften its demands, Aquarius will close up or decide to end the relationship.
Aquarius and Sagittarius
Aquarius and Sagittarius share the basic needs of freedom, independence, the need for social contact and new friends. These two will feel understood even in their differences. Sagittarius and Aquarius will manage to maintain a lasting and stable union.
Aquarius and Capricorn
Aquarius and Capricorn will fascinate each other in the beginning, but they will hardly reach a safe haven in this relationship. Capricorn and Aquarius are too different in their natures. They will have confrontations every time that one expects the other to act in a way that is contrary to their nature. With a lot of love, maybe they will make it.
Aquarius and Aquarius
Aquarius and Aquarius can make a perfectly solid and lasting union. Their equal natures help them to understand their own basic needs. They should be careful not to abuse their excessive desire for independence because they may become so estranged from each other that they each build their own separate world.
Aquarius and Pisces
Aquarius and Pisces can form a committed and pleasant relationship if, from the beginning, they have mutual respect for their differences. Tolerance is required. While Pisces must understand the need of Aquarius to isolate itself, Aquarius will have to make an effort to be more emotionally demonstrative.
Aquarius in Love and Passion
Seductive Aquarians are attracted to people who stand out. They seek, above all, those with whom they blend well.
When they are interested in someone, they manage to hide their feelings and act distant and inaccessible. They’ll only show their cards when the other person backs off in disinterest.
Sometimes they’re very cold and have a hard time expressing their feelings
They are masters of contained passion, something that many people find irresistible.
They like to exchange ideas. Their ideas about physical intimacy are as original as they are unpredictable.
However, if the relationship becomes too absorbing, the physical aspect no longer interests them.
An Aquarius cannot be asked to share their whole life, but if they are given the time they need, they’ll reveal themselves to be thoughtful, stimulating, and fun.
Over the years, assuming that they find the right partner, they learn to show themselves just as they are, and to establish deep bonds.
Aquarius in Marriage
When Aquarians overcome their fears and assume the commitment of marriage, they demonstrate great loyalty and a wide variety of strengths.
They need a bit of freedom, and a partner who supports and loves them without putting too much pressure on them.
They bring their many hobbies to the marriage, as well as a long list of friends. They like to keep their social agenda full, because life with only one person never completely satisfies them.
They are not materialistic. Aquarians, regardless of gender, expect their spouse to help with household chores.
In theory, they are in favor of doing their part to help out at home, but in practice, they get overwhelmed if they spend too much time at home.
