Aquarius is a true original. Deeply interested in making the world a better place, Aquarius is often personally invested in causes of social justice. They’re also profoundly unconcerned with standard notions of “normal behavior” which can make them read as eccentric. Enthusiastic, sensitive, and empathetic, Aquarius can make an intoxicating partner, although they can also skew towards being judgmental of those the view as on the “wrong” side of change.
The elements of the other Sun Signs are therefore good indicators of where to begin to look for love compatibility. Of course, there is much more to astrology synastry between two people than just the Sun, but because the Sign that the Sun is in represents the archetype of the psychological ego, it is a good test of compatible personal drive. You also have free will and can make challenging pairings work when you love the individual enough to do the work.
Fire Signs (Aries Sagittarius, Leo)
Fire with Air is always a bit of a risky proposition, with the Air sign whipping up the Fire into a conflagration that can make for great passion, but less stability. While Aquarius will likely be drawn to the passion and righteousness of Fire signs, these two must be careful to practice a great deal of respectful communication and understanding, lest they clash over differing views or ways of doing things.
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
While Aquarius may delight in the intellectual conversation and creative thinking of fellow Air signs, it’s easy for this double helping of Air to wind up floating away with nothing to show for it. While this duo can make for great fun and even an enjoyable romance, it may only have longevity if both partners are willing to build a solid foundation with meaningful shared interests.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Aquarius may find the mysterious and introspective Water sign deeply fascinating, and may further be intrigued by their intuitive way of thinking. Though Aquarians may initially feel a nurturing spirit toward sensitive Water signs, they may also get frustrated by the Water’s tendency to focus on quiet and internal work rather than passionate reform of corrupt systems. While these two can make a stimulating duo, it will require Aquarius to practice patience and self-awareness.
Earth Signs (Taurus,Virgo, Capricorn)
An Earth sign can be a stabilizing partner for the passionate Aquarius, though Aquarius may also grow frustrated with what it interprets as the Earth signs “stick in the mud” approach to life. Though Aquarius can benefit from the influence of a careful, routine-minded Earth sign, they may also chafe at this more traditional way of doing things. While this can be a mutually beneficial relationship, Aquarius must be willing to compromise and respect the Earth’s more methodical nature.
