January 20 – February 18
Aquarius babies are initially seen as timid and reserved but at the same time manifest energetic qualities and brilliant ideas. Truly original, this sense of individuality may be seen as eccentricity but it is this same characteristic coupled with their highly intellectual minds that allow them to see the world in another angle with limitless possibilities – definitely no dull moment when you’re with one. They tend to have the ability to perceive the future, and their unprejudiced point of view enabled them to easily solve problems.
Despite their brilliant visionary minds, Aquarians show humility that make them perfect humanists, progressives and philosophers. Intellectual stimulation triggered by stories, experiences and observations are perfect conversation pieces for those under the Aquarius sign.
With their inherent curiosity and brain power, they tend to dislike limitations. It is their strengths that become their downfall too, as it is easy to get an Aquarius bored with routine. They need constant stimulation and excitement in their lives. Their highly intellectual minds also may be perceived as some as cold, lacking heart, warmth and do not allow for emotions. According to iZodiac, this may be perceived as a lack of connection with the world, making them seem uncompromising and aloof.
Aquarius for Partners
When it comes to dating, love, and sex, the Aquarius are straight up sapiosexuals that get turned on by intelligence according to Astrology Zodiac Sign, and the same has been reported by Guy Counseling. Getting into meaningful conversations are the easiest way to attract them. For Aquarians, the best way to the heart is through the brain. They are attracted with openness, imagination and new experiences. They constantly crave emotional excitement, and in some ways needs to be continuously swept off their feet. This might be difficult to sustain at first, but once the other party is well aware of this, keeping up can get easier.
Aquarius isn’t necessarily seen as a monogamous sign. Their constant need to experience new experience applies to their partners too. They might enter a relationship on a whim, based on their mood at the moment, and end relationships similarly. In this sense, an aquarian’s partner must quench their thirst on both intellectual and emotional level to get a relationship to last.

According to Compatible Astrology, Aquarius men are perfect if you want a mix of profoundness and fun in your life. Their innate qualities of intelligence and adventure make them attractive as they seem confident with themselves. They are interested in potential partners who are independent, curious and smart like them. This tendency makes them very picky – but at the same time makes them very steadfast once they made a choice – as they have already filtered and studied the potential matches.
Establishing a connection, however, might be problematic given his intellectual nature – small talk doesn’t work, they want deep meaningful conversations. They want to establish mental compatibility first before dealing with physical and sexual connection – which would make him an ideal man who is not just out there for sex. They tend to have issues showing affection and expressing their feelings – which can hurt communication – which as we all know is vital in any relationship. They value independence and are not inclined to clingy partners.
Similar to their male counterparts, Aquarius women also possess the same confidence and independence. These women are the feminist-types who want to be treated as an equal. They are not needy or clingy to their partners but is more interested in trying new things, traveling whether she is alone or with a companion, as long as her curiosity is being satisfied. Their thirst for knowledge also makes them disinterested in mundane and passive activities that do not stimulate their minds.
Their intellectual prowess gives them a wit and humor that can destroy fragile men. They are quite straightforward in their preferences and one is sure to know if an Aquarius woman is interested or not. Earning an Aquarius woman’s trust can also be a long process where the partner needs to prove that they are interesting intellectually, before winning her emotionally. They can be uncompromising too, often taking the reigns in the relationship.

#1 Aquarius – Aquarius
Given an Aquarius’ very strict inclination to intellectualism and rationality, an Aquarius is most compatible with no other than a fellow Aquarius, which is no wonder since no one can understand a very curious mind other than another curious mind. Loving your own – two Aquarius individuals can relate to each other’s varying interests, quirks and are plenty independent to bother each other with clinginess.
In both Sachs and Castille studies, it was observed that there was significantly more Aquarius men married to Aquarius women and vice versa.
#2 Aquarius – Gemini
In the runner-up position to an Aquarius’ heart are Geminis. Both Air signs, Geminis are known to have a great sense of humor and wittiness, which is complimentary to an Aquarius’ idea-filled mind. This intellectual bond, according to Astrology.com is strong and true – Aquarians being humanist-philosophers and Geminis thinker-conversationalists. The two will create great conversations over the most interesting subjects, and the Aquarius will appreciate the fact that they are talking to someone who can turn them on intellectually, after all, sense of humor entails a fast processing and highly creative mind – both very important characteristics for an Aquarius. Both of these signs are energetic, seek independence and thrive in change, which is amazing that none of the parties will feel limited or constrained by the relationship.

It is also their way with words that ensure that communication will not be a problem. Trust between the two signs is high given that they value each other’s independence, and both parties do not have the energy to deal with lies as their intellectualism dictates that it will be a waste of time.
Their emotions might not be as in sync, however, given Aquarius’ tendency to seem cold while being the mutable sign, Gemini may have an unstable emotional state.
#3 Aquarius – Capricorn
An Aquarius – Capricorn partnership is an example of yin-yang partnership. The two signs can bring out the best traits of one another. Capricorn is cautious, Aquarius is a thrill seeker. Capricorn likes organization while Aquarius dislikes routine. The balance of their traits will create an enlightening learning experience for both parties in the relationship as they see the other side of the coin. What unites them is their common goals, coupled with both party’s progressive thinking, and despite their differing approach on how to accomplish things, they get things done anyway. Their differences are so apparent but it would only greatly benefit each other once in a partnership as they can support each other on where one is lacking.
It is the same differences which might also cause rifts in the relationship if the parties are not able to work as team and compromise. To negotiate the differences, the more grounded and level-headed Capricorn may compromise some of their traditional, highly organized and by the book approach to try the unorthodox methods of the Aquarius.
#4 Aquarius – Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a fire sign while Aquarius is an air sign and the relationship between two individuals of these signs will be like how air affects fire. A creative and unique couple that loves independence, doesn’t know of limitations and can get competitive. Their great communication skills allow them to share ideas passionately, and both are non-emotional which makes the relationship fuss-free. These two signs have a mutual admiration for each other’s traits and value freedom and spontaneity more than anything else. Adrenaline junkies, even what they do in bed is bound not to get boring.
It is their tendency to be both rational and independent that could also spell this duo’s downfall as the lack of emotionality and connectedness might affect the intimacy.
#5 Aquarius – Pisces
Both signs are idealistic, compassionate, sociable, introspective, and good with communication. Both like to cultivate knowledge, are open to new ideas and value freedom. Pisces are creative and romantic while Aquarius are imaginative and innovative – making them good partners to create ideas, and dreams – materializing these is another story, though. A combination of water and air, they are both very flexible and progressive and their values are highly aligned with each other. Given their personalities, sex life will not go dull coming up with creative ways to spice things up.
Despite their similarities, the way a Pisces expresses emotions is way stronger than an Aquarius would. Sensitive Pisces will often find itself disappointed with the emotional effort Aquarius is giving, or the lack of it. Trust may become an issue as Aquarius may seem too reckless to Pisces that needs constant reassuring.
#6 Aquarius – Libra
This love match of two air signs connects intellectually, sharing a love of art, culture, progress, and humanitarian causes. Aquarius and Libra have a great teamwork and trust. Libra have natural leadership at diplomatic qualities that an Aquarian will admire as someone who values intelligence. As implied with the symbol of Libra, the scales, they will be consciously making the effort to ensure balance in the relationship.
The difference lies on how each perceives opinion, Libra are concerned about other people’s judgment, while Aquarius simply doesn’t care. The same may be said of the intimacy and values, where Libras tend to be a bit more traditional and square, which may concern an Aquarius who thrives on independence, freedom, and spontaneity.
#7 Aquarius – Cancer
Both signs are ambitious and are disinterested in conflict – making the relationship rather peaceful. While Aquarius revels in socializing, Cancer is more introverted. Cancer provides the stability, Aquarius provides the fun. A case of opposites attract, their different personalities can be a way to learn and experience more for both parties.
While Aquarius gives much importance to rationality, Cancer prefers emotions. A practice in compromise, instead of having the differences complement their strengths and weaknesses, difficulties arise. A sensitive Cancer values stability, intimacy, and home, while Aquarius wants spontaneity and adventure. Sex life may also exhibit the disparity in their values where Cancer wants a gentle lovemaking, Aquarius wants to be moe physical and energetic. A strong and aggressive Aquarian lifestyle may seem to be too stressful for Cancer.
#8 Aquarius – Virgo
This match can work but might entail lots of effort from both parties to understand where each is coming from. Virgos are practical and are concerned with earthly things – being an earth sign – and very organized and methodical which is one way to tame the wild Aquarius. Despite these, both signs value rationality and communication – which are good tools to work out on differences. They have high trust level for each other driven the fact that neither finds sense in lying.
Sex and intimacy will suffer from their opposing approach in life, though. Aquarius will find Virgos taking too long to decide and staying in the safe zone too much. Virgos will then find Aquarius fast decisions to be a product of lack of concern.
#9 Aquarius – Aries
Dynamic and energetic signs who are interested in taking action and socializing – they will have limitless activities and adventure and share an eagerness and excitement for life. The two signs have high level of trust and value independence and as such there is less likelihood for either to feel overwhelmed in the relationship. Communication comes easily for both, usually with humor injected into it, making them both quite charismatic.
The level of their energy makes an exciting sex life, willing to try out new things without inhibitions, but their masculine characteristics could cause lack of tenderness or intimacy. Aries tends to be interested in the physical aspect of sex meanwhile, Aquarius have a tendency to seem cold when it come to romance. This lack of emotions when it comes to sexual contact is expected to get better in time.
Both have tempers and likely to butt heads as Aries is cardinal and Aquarius a fixed sign – both tend to take charge. Determined Aries can get to carried away with Aquarius’ great plans, only to feel left hanging when Aquarius goes on relaxed mode and the plans does not come to fruition. The key to this duo is complementing each other’s strengths – Aquarius can calm down the very fiery Aries, while Aries can motivate an often chill Aquarius.
#10 Aquarius – Leo
An excellent team of two strong characters, it is a partnership to be reckoned with, destined to build empires. They both show leadership qualities, energetic, motivated, competitive, people oriented. This translates in the bedroom, where sex is sensual, wild, passionate and liberating. With strong personalities, communication may seem like a fight for dominance in the relationship. The magnitude of Leo’s emotions can affect even an Aquarius’ cold heart.
Their strong characters will also be the reason for arguments and fights, Leos seeks attention and can get jealous – characteristics that an Aquarius cannot tolerate.
#11 Aquarius – Scorpio
Both are fixed signs and difference is philosophies will be apparent in this partnership. Both are loyal and devoted, though opinionated. With a Scorpio being possessive, rigid and unreliable, it will be difficult to find a common ground for the Aquarius. Their elements are contradicting that they might not be able to compromise and negotiate. They both value excitement but other than this, nothing else seem to match. They have a low level of trust, different ways of expressing emotions, and egos that might be too big for one another.
This match will have no problem reading what the other is thinking and if they were able to work with each other can be quite successful.
#12 Aquarius – Taurus
From two different worlds, an Aquarius – Taurus match can be a good match if only they are able to find a way to see things as the other sees it. One wants to be tied down, and the other wants to fly – if only they can find a fair compromise.
Taurus are down-to-earth but temperamental, while an Aquarius is on the unconventional side and can be aloof. Aquarius will find dealing with Taurus’ temper and moodiness a waste of time and find Taurus’ tendency to go for safe boring. Domineering Aquarius will not appreciate the stubbornness of Taurus. Taurus wants a secure partnership from the get-go while an Aquarius wants freedom – and this can really dampen intimacy.
