Aquarius (January 21 - February 19)

As you were born under the zodiac sign of Aquarius, you are ruled by the electric and progressive planet Uranus. This causes you to be very forward-thinking and independent in your way of approaching most things in life. No one is able to tell you how to live, because from an early age you are broad-minded and visionary attitudes made it clear to you just how differently you wished to experience your life. Even if you are sometimes criticized for this rebellious attitude, you would prefer to see yourself as an autonomous and self-sufficient human being.

Zodiac Sign of Aquarius


Aries, the Ram is bold, and Aquarius is audacious, together they can create an ideal relationship. It's a match that thrives on fun and adventure with a dose of tact and understanding. Aries, a Fire Sign, is ruled by dynamic Mars, while Aquarius, an Air Sign, is governed by a unique combination of the structured and responsible Saturn and the outrageous Uranus. Aries is creative and is always full of new ideas. While the Aquarius is adventurous, unorthodox and determined, they will find fabulously original ways to execute their well-thought-out plans. There is little difference between the two, for Aries loves the glory and adores a challenge, while Aquarius is more methodical and reasonable of the procedures. Intellectually they are well suited, for both have a wide range of interests and love to talk about them. Aquarians are more detached and intellectual about problems than Aries, who becomes more personally involved. Aries will find the Aquarian unpredictability exciting, but never feels entirely secure. Neither of them likes to be dominated, but An Aries should be usually allowed to take the lead for the sake of peace, depending on the Aquarian temperament. Sometimes the Ram can be rather too possessive and demanding. The ego problem has to be ironed out to achieve a perfect balance in the relationship. The relation is well matched in their enthusiasm, energy, ambition, wide range of interests and drive, sexual fun and mutual love of achievement the best part in an Aries-Aquarian relationship is that, no one tries to tie each other down, for they understand the other's need for freedom, adventure, and outside interests.  Top


A Taurean is steadfast, while the Aquarian is determined but quirky. They approach life and love from two very diverse perspectives. Both are fixed signs so the sexual attraction will be intense, mainly through the fascination of differences among the two. There are fundamental differences that will require lots of efforts, if the relationship is to survive in the longer term. Aquarius, the Water-Bearer, is unorthodox , outward looking, intellectual and adventurous, who loves to discover new people and places, being stimulated by the exploration of fresh ideas, untrodden pathways and cultural differences, While, Taurus, the Bull, is happy to plod on known territories. They are more inclined to be home-loving, possessive and concerned with the material joys of life and also likes to be in control, but the Water-bearer has his own set of independent rules which are though very unconventional suit them well. This disturbs the conservative Taurus, who approves of the tried-and-tested ways. The carefree and detached approach of an Aquarian to love may eventually disturb the highly passionate Bull who would always like to be taken seriously. Taurus might demand more commitment than you are willing to give, especially early in the relationship. Both are stubborn and when differences arise which is hard to overcome. A Taurean lover's possessiveness and jealousy is never likely to abate. The rigidity of the Taureans will incline the Aquarians to pack their bags and leave. So unless there is excellent Moon or Rising Sign combinations, this match is not likely to be satisfactory in the long run unless you have strong external interests in common.  Top


Gemini the Twins and Aquarius the Water-Bearer enjoy a broad, stimulating intellectual relationship because both are equally lively, energetic and full of ideas to share together. The couple will enjoy each other's quick, intelligent minds and will have endless fascinating conversations about people, ideas and places. The flexible Gemini is more than willing to go along with the Aquarian taste for experiment and also appreciates the unconventional Aquarian ideas. The Water-bearer, on the other hand, is a stabilizing influence on the Twins and is able to calm down that erratic Geminine flightiness. That helps a Gemini focus provided they are allowed enough mental space and freedom and not pushed into anything. The Twins will value independence and are open and adaptable. Aquarius, a fixed sign, is more determined. They can be very stubborn, and will normally be the stronger and more stable of the two. You'll prefer to take the lead in this relationship, and Gemini will be happy to follow with very little differences. Both are open to all manner of experimentation when it comes to their physical needs. However, the wells of passion do not run all that deep, for, Gemini is more excited talking about it than actually performing the art of passion. This fits in well with the Aquarian's own inclinations, so it’s important to keep the interest in each other going strong and light at the same time. Both signs love to socialize and have a wide range of outside activities. Fortunately jealousy and the idea of ownership of a partner are very uncharacteristic of these two signs, which make them a perfect match.  Top


The Water bearer may get attracted to the Crab, when they meet, due to the power of the sexual attraction. The fascination is partly due to their very different ways of approach to the world. Cancer is creative, deeply emotional, quite tender at heart despite that legendary shell, sensual and moody; while Aquarius is intellectually adventurous, emotionally detached, fiercely independent stubborn and fairly self-contained. Cancer's sensuality and romantic imagination is intriguing for the Aquarian's unconventional appetites. This combination is interesting and potentially rewarding when put in a structured goal-directed environment, can be very productive, due to the Aquarian ability to maintain a steady approach, combined with Cancer's creativity and emotional power. But the couple needs to develop mutual goals and work together on projects that they can share, so that the energies can be put to work instead of degenerating into jealousy and restlessness. Cancer can draw the Aquarian out of their ivory tower and the Crab's intellect is enlivened by the Aquarian's ideas. Both should make sure they do lots of travelling together, but always have a secure home base to return to and any apparent incompatibilities can be balanced and resolved.  Top


Here are two signs that are temperamentally opposed to each other in many respects, if not diametrically. While Aquarius is quiet, reserved and stand-offish by nature, the Leo is warm, independent-minded and proud. The aloofness of Aquarius would prove to be a challenge to Leo and what will possibly bring them together is the fact that on the first appearance, the Aquarian will seem to the Leo to be a much warmer hearted personality than he/she seems under that frosty exterior. Though warm-hearted the Aquarian is, but it will scarcely be seen on the exterior; the Aquarian will never be as warm hearted and generous with self as Leo would like or expect - a thing that the latter will have to accept if he/she wants to get the relationship going. Both Aquarius and Leo are pride filled signs with fixed opinions which will cause them many arguments. Being a humanitarian, Aquarius is not that interested in material gain; with Leo, success in financial gains comes first and has little patience with the Aquarian ideals; calling them unrealistic. The lower type of Aquarian is apt to be cowardly in life, never confronting anything, except the violent quarrels with his/her spouse. The first time this cowardice is noticed by Leo, there comes a loss of respect which sends Leo out of the relationship, and out looking for a mate he/she can respect. The Leo can never tolerate himself/herself being inferior to others and neither will any sign of lowliness be tolerated in his/her partner. Their sexual life will be unsatisfactory for Leo as Aquarians have a propensity towards looking for better companions who can capture their interests and this will frustrate and make Leo think that his/her mate is inhuman and uncaring. Surely not a match made in Heaven. Top


The only sign that is likely to remain single as Aquarius, the Water-Bearer, is Virgo the Virgin, but for quite different reasons. The Aquarian longs to experience the whole world as a lover and can't imagine having to settle down with just one person for life. Virgo, on the other hand, is very particular, waiting for that one special, perfect person who will meet his or her high expectations and specific requirements. Freedom is a big issue for the Aquarian, but quality is the issue for Virgo While this might not be the best combination for a romantic relationship, it can be an excellent connection for a meeting of the minds. Intellectual Aquarius is an Air Sign, living in a world of ideas and possibilities, many of which are ahead of their time. They resent any form of restriction and conventional values are less than appealing to them. They would far rather devise a new form of relationship that is entirely new and based around rules of their own. Yet the two of can enjoy an intellectual bond, because healing Virgo, an Earth Sign, is ruled by witty Mercury and the Aquarian has a serious temperament that is a mark of Saturn, yet at the same time are bursting with Uranian ideals and groundbreaking concepts. Each of them would bring vastly different viewpoints to a relationship, though due to the fascination of difference, the sexual attraction can be intense. Aquarius loves to break new ground, to explore the unknown, while Virgo prefers to reflect and analyse. Virgo is a perfectionist. Both are rational and intellectual, tending to view love the abstract. The Aquarians are legendary for your emotional detachment, yet Virgo too has a fair share of emotional restrictions. Both will need to be aware that Virgo has a strong need for personal achievement and financial security. In intimate or family connections, more harmonious connections between the Moon and Ascendant Signs can improve personal understanding and foster emotional closeness. Without such connections, this is a very difficult match.  Top


The combination of Libra, the Scales, and Aquarius, the Water Bearer, is excellent. Since ruled by Venus, the planet of love and sensual delight, Libra lives for love, style and elegance. Aquarius is strong and stable, yet adventurous and willing to break new ground. The cool, calm intellect and love of discovery makes the Water-bearer fascinating to charming Libra. A diplomatic Libra also knows just how to charm quirky and stubborn streak of the Water-bearer. Both may have things in common in a wide range of interests. The Aquarian will like the way each other's minds work and share interests in music, theater arts, parties and their interests people. Both are active social beings. It’s a mutual admiration club for Aquarian-Libra match. The Aquarian is truly charmed by Libra's artistic, elegant, easygoing stance, and Libra is fascinated by the lust for adventure and pursuits of the new and unorthodox traits of the Water-bearer. The fact that the Aquarian enjoy their own company and can work for extended periods alone is often puzzling to Libra, contact on a regular basis is necessary. Libra is diplomatic though and can charm the Aquarian, when they sulk. The cool Aquarian detachment can provoke first dismay, then Libran anger, if they are not careful to provide emotional nourishment, as well as fun, security. Creative Libra is a Cardinal sign and Aquarius is a fixed sign. Libra will quickly come up with new ideas and new places to go -- but just as quickly change tack and head off in a new direction. Libra is more romantic than Aquarius, but the sexual harmony is delightful. Tolerant Libra seeks to please and tends to view lovemaking as an art at which, of course, both excel. Creating the right environment for love is very important, however, and a failure to do so on the Aquarian's part will most likely lead to a rapid, though decorous, retreats. But this delightful combination is a perfect match. Top


The Aquarius-Scorpio match is not an ideal one as they happen to be different creatures. The Aquarius is an intellectual Air Sign, while the Scorpio is a passionate water sign. The Aquarian is a lover of freedom and needs his/her own space. The highly emotional Scorpio is strongly possessive and will want to reserve the Aquarian as an exclusive property, failing which verbal clashes and jealous outbursts may occur. But it is their strong sexual chemistry where this relationship works and how! The legendary passion of the Scorpio is enough to ensnare the Aquarian, whose social skills and intelligence draw the Scorpio like a magnet. The Aquarian needs to provide the Scorpio with loyalty and treat him her with deep understanding to win their love and affection. Tolerance and a little freedom is what the Scorpio should give the Aquarian if the relationship is to be sustained. This is a union that is not exactly recommended by the heavens but a little understanding on both sides can make it work just fine. Top


The Aquarians and Sagittarius make unique and creative partners. They are able to inspire each other, not just in their sexual innovations, but also intellectually, for Sagittarius are optimistic and visionary, and appreciate the Aquarian far-out, inventive ideas. This partnership is uninhibited, uniting Aquarian ideals and Sagittarian knowledge, so while it can get competitive, it's always interesting! Beneath the romantic overtone sounds the harmony of a beautiful friendship. This allows true communication and a real understanding of each other. Both signs are idealistic and enthusiastic about life, and together they can really have fun. Sagittarius admires Aquarian unconventionality and determination to pursue even the most radical idea to its logical conclusion. Both signs are highly social and fun-loving who like people, seeing new places, and whatever is unpredictable. Sagittarius is attracted to the Aquarian individuality, vision and creative capacity and the Sagittarian energy, love of freedom and willingness to take a chance, attracts that of an Aquarian's interest. Each of them loves to be independent, but there aren't many conflicts between them, because both understand each other perfectly on this. The Aquarian can be dogmatic in their attitudes to freedom and other liberal ideals, but that doesn't bother live-and-let-live Sagittarius. Emotional intimacy may take a while to develop, but then, that's not really what either of them are looking for. As long as they can communicate their happiness about the relationship, the long term potential is excellent. This is a perfect match! Top


Aquarius, the Water-Bearer and Capricorn, the Sea-Goat are both strong and creative signs, with a powerful sense of identity. Though both Signs are traditionally ruled by structured Saturn, they differ in that idealistic Aquarius, the home of outrageous Uranus, seeks to be free, while ambitious Capricorn, the exaltation of Mars, seeks to dominate! The intense sexual attraction between the two will wash over the differences, but when the intensity begins to fade, the focus will turn on the short comings of each other. In the art of lovemaking, Capricorn is enthusiastic and adventurous when aroused, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. The Aquarians are emotionally restrained and enjoy sex as an extension of friendship and what seems good at the time. Your penchant for the unusual goes down well with your randy Cap, but the intensity of the Sea-Goat's passion can be a bit of a turn-off, once the urgent desires have cooled somewhat. Your approaches are totally different. Capricorn is goal-oriented and ambitious, while you prefer to explore intellectual issues to their logical outcome. Aquarius is an Air Sign, while Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Capricorn, a strange mixture of ambition and insecurity, always worries about the consequences, but the Aquarian enjoys the thrill of the chase for the sake of their own personal satisfaction. Aquarian's wide-ranging, adventurous mind with opinions about everything, can be threatening to the Sea Goat. Water-Bearer, however will not take kindly to being given advice, or to being bossed around. This is a difficult match.  Top


An Aquarian combination is an oblique and delightful partnership. Independent, inventive, progressive and attracted to the new and unusual, you are sexually suited and share a wide range of interests. The mutual admiration and fondness for each other is apparent. They particularly love each other's sense of humor. Each one of you is engaged in a wide variety of projects and friendships and its easy to share each other's interests. This partnership is sexually uninhibited. Which essentially means - that they vouch for Sex as an important part of a healthy relationship and loves to be experimental without any emotional involvement. An Ideal relationship for an Aquarian is friendship with Sex. Emotional intimacy is not really what either of them look for. Jealousy, between an Aquarian couples is rare since both are much more rational than emotional. So a structured future together between the two is not impossible. The best part in an Aquarian relationship is that, the two can still be great friends and break new grounds in intellectual and sexual wizardry as both are idealistic and enthusiastic about life. As a couple, the Aquarians can be bonded for life in a unique and unconventional way, as long as they can communicate their happiness about the relationship. Top


The Pisces and the Water-Bearer share a genuinely creative and compassionate connection. The Aquarian is intrigued by the romantic Piscean charm and the visionary ideals of an Aquarian, which attracts the Piscean intellect. As a couple, the two can achieve an unusual intimacy that they would be immensely proud of. The common factors among both signs are that, they love to socialize. However, Pisces is very introspective and will need plenty of support. Jealousy can sometimes rear up, more through a sense of insecurity than a desire to own. An Aquarian should always remember to make their Piscean lover feel wanted and valued. Conflicts arise due to the need for emotional support and tenderness, so preferences should be subdued over ideas of romance of an Aquarian. This is a very good match, but requires that you show more emotional commitment than you are used to. Aquarius is often rather emotionally detached; they have to learn to let their emotions flow.  Top
