Aquarius Sun With Aries Rising
“Adventurous Water Bearer”
With Aries rising, you are the toughest Aquarius. You take your idealism to a Utopian extreme. Your sense of independence is so extreme, that your friends accuse you of lack of affection.
You are the pioneer of the Aquarians, but do not take it so seriously because you can easily fall into fanaticism without realizing it.
Your style is that of an adventurer. Your ups and downs are the breeding ground of both building up and wrecking. You find your closest friends at the edge of the precipice.
When you find someone to love, you jump on your prey without giving them a chance to react. With the same outburst, you will decide that the relationship is over and your partner will suffer your decision without having any say in the matter.
Your worst defect is intolerance. Your virtue: courage and will. When you decide to, you can change the world.
You will succeed in any undertaking, provided that you face it with the spirit of conquest.
Aquarius Sun With Taurus Rising
“Patience and pleasure”
You have a very conflicting configuration, which makes you a contradictory and problematic being.
Yous sun in Aquarius impels you to inconstancy. If you know how to develop the qualities of your Taurus ascendant, you will develop patience, which would complement your sun sign.
These signs together increase your stubbornness and distrust. Your vivacity tends to be toned down and your unpredictable actions become more thoughtful.
You are the most hedonistic of all Aquarians. That helps you moderate your tendency to silence your feelings. Uranus also helps Venus to be a little more inventive and imaginative.
Your honesty is evident, especially in everything related to the defense of traditional values, such as home. Your efforts are directed towards the professional and social field.
In love, you are more passionate than other Aquarians. You have a possessive streak. You would be interested in starting a family.
Aquarius Sun With Gemini Rising
“Movement and change”
Aquarius sun with Gemini rising, you are a quite coherent being. You know very well what you want, but you want many things and all at once.
Your wit amazes those around you. Your curiosity can sometimes be excessive.
You are a master of communicating your findings, but you run the risk of hearing only your voice.
You support causes with solidarity, and every time that you do so, you become more human.
In love, try to remember that you have a person next to you and not a number.
You are one of those who do not want to hear any talk about marriage. Inwardly, you know very well what your decision is regarding that matter.
At work, you combine manual dexterity with inventiveness, and insist on doing things your way.
Reflect and think about why some people do not trust you. Maybe it’s because, given your malleable personality, you change your skin at every moment.
Aquarius Sun With Cancer Rising
“Tradition and revolution”
The Cancer ascendant is almost opposite to the Aquarius sun sign. While Cancer is a traditionalist, Aquarius breaks molds. Is it difficult to maintain the balance?
You can be defined as a person who respects the ancestors, and at the same time, wants to modify the existing laws.
Your good memory can serve you in your innovative tasks, but always on the basis of the defense of home and family.
Regarding intimacy, Cancer balances you. You come to believe that it is worth venturing into love.
Aquarius Sun With Leo Rising
“Creative and generous”
Aquarius and Leo are opposite signs, but they complement each other to give an outstanding personality.
You channel your Leo originality and add the virtues of your sun sign: idealism and humanitarian actions. You can feel compassion for the weak and generosity of heart, which is difficult for Aquarius. Doors open for you to develop all your creative power.
At work, you may have problems because of your tendency to want to dominate others.
Even though you are faithful, your provocations can spoil your marriage. Despotism does not help you and your loved ones understand each other. Remember that your freedom ends where the other’s begins.
Aquarius Sun With Virgo Rising
“Reliable and astute”
In this combination of signs, the mental chaos of Aquarius finds a balance.
With Virgo rising, you are more methodical and organized than other Aquarians.
The humble and simple disposition typical of Virgo calms the desire to become independent.
The austerity that you behave with, not as crazy as those of other natives of Aquarius, make your ingenuity yield better results.
On the emotional side, you can fail because you are too critical, you let bad temper dominate you, and you demand from others more than what they can give. Your lack of understanding of the needs of others can sometimes cloud your judgment.
Your concentration and application make you a reliable worker.
With ascendant in Virgo, you are the most astute of the Aquarians. And also the most critical and demanding.
Aquarius Sun With Libra Rising
“Beauty and refinement”
Aquarius sun and Libra rising is a combination that results in a social being par excellence. This balanced personality will have always measured and diplomatic reactions. Your ascendant in Libra will not let the idealism that drives your sun sign turn into fanaticism.
Gentleness joins tact in the social environment and so you get people to obey you without even raising your voice. At work, this will give you a very special talent for making productive connections.
When you notice that your energies dissipate and you become indolent, consider if it is because you are striving only to receive the approval of others.
Even so, you will always keep your sense of justice and beauty intact.
Aquarius Sun With Scorpio Rising
“Sarcastic and intelligent”
Scorpio and Aquarius are two fixed signs, which symbolize the sustaining of what has already been created. Therefore, they promote stability.
This combination, however, is not harmonious enough to give rise to flexibility and proper freedom.
If friendship is important to you, try not to encourage discord, because you could end up “punishing” others for your own failures. Your sarcasm you can be overly cruel.
Try to avoid your Scorpio ascendant from dominating your most primal passions. Giving too much of yourself can become an elaborate form of “mental torture.”
Aquarius Sun With Sagittarius Rising
“Prophetic and visionary”
In friendship, you know how to give the best of your Aquarius sun sign: fairness and loyalty to those around you. Your valuation of knowledge makes you “enlighten” your friends and family when they are suffering from ignorance. With Sagittarius rising, you are able to do this in the most positive way.
You idealize love and pursue your goals with passion.
Your mental openness, together with a certain vision of the future, give you a great prophetic capacity.
You believe in the progress of Humanity. You set the example with your own initiatives, which point to a better world. Do not let all the applause make you conceited.
Aquarius Sun With Capricorn Rising
“Patient and hard-working”
Aquarius and Capricorn are in tune because they share the planet Saturn. Spiritual ideals are sometimes neglected in favor of petty interests.
The generosity of Aquarius is eclipsed by Capricorn, busy achieving worldly results: social standing and status.
You want to get things at any cost.
Work is a large part of your focus. Surely, your Capricorn ascendant will help put into practice your ideas. But you must make a great effort, because you do not have a magic wand that makes your dreams come true. That is to say, things will not come easy to you. You will have to overcome obstacles, but you are capable of doing so.
Your reservation does not let you move comfortably in social circles. If you keep yourself so inaccessible, you will become insensitive, even to yourself, and your actions will be totally impersonal. You do not despair like other Aquarians—you know that time cures everything.
Aquarius with ascendant in Capricorn: with patience, you will always get what you want.
Aquarius Sun With Aquarius Rising
You are the prototype of the Aquarius sign, with its virtues and the defects, except for any particular considerations in your natal chart.
It only remains to be added that you may be as egocentric as a leonine, “living la vida loca.”
You carry yourself without asking permission from anyone, making your way with your characteristic freedom.
Love relationships are passionate and generous.
Your ideal partner is almost unattainable, someone with a top-level position, to further enhance the projects you want to carry forward. They will always be revolutionary, innovative, and deeply human.
Aquarius is usually described as a sign of “change,” however, the following quote is much more true to the Aquarius mission:
Humanity is as it is; it’s not about changing it, but about knowing it.
So, while Aquarius is about changing society and institutions, it’s not about changing the actual humans. Aquarius accepts humans as they are.
Aquarius Sun With Pisces Rising
“Mystique and art”
The idealism of Aquarius gives new brilliance to the iridescent scales of the fish and places it on the crest of the mystical wave.
You have the will to fulfill the most difficult spiritual goals. Your renunciation is so complete and committed that you can even hold high religious positions.
Your manifestations will be artistic, in any field. Aquarius with Pisces rising gives a characteristic extreme sensitivity which is comparable to that of Chopin (pianist).
Your actions will always have a humanitarian tinge, and you will reject any reward. It is necessary that you always maintain your lucidity, so as not to compromise yourself with Utopian dreams.
Melancholy will be one of your weak points, perhaps because you perceive, with greater clarity than other Aquarians, the human drama in all its dimension, and the needs of others that sometimes you can not meet.
Keep fighting, because your works will be for eternity.
