Possibly the most independent of all astrology signs, Aquarius is the loner of the zodiac. According to many popular horoscopes, Aquarius love compatibility is virtually non-existent, but is this sign really destined to be a lonely hippy in the festival of life? No, not a bit of it! As a quirky, eccentric Aquarius you have more than your fair share of admirers, and you bring some very special gifts to a relationship too. Your mythological archetype is the visionary, and we all know visionaries have groupies!
It is true that your independence and need for freedom make you reluctant to settle down into traditional domestic bliss. You are nothing if not unconventional, after all. You do love deeply, but you might give a lover the impression that you care more for mankind in general than you do for him or for her; your humanitarian instincts can trump your personal interests frequently, and many the partner of an Aquarius complains that their partner is too busy saving the world to have time for them. Aquarius compatibility depends upon compromise between your ideals and your partner’s wishes.
You’re not really all that interested in the fluffy, romantic visions of love held dear by some other signs. For you, love is about a meeting of minds, and about the ability to cope in choppy waters. You tend to assume that your feelings don’t need to be made explicit, which can upset those signs who depend on open demonstrations of affection. Aquarius compatibility often works best with partners other people disapprove of – the more someone frowns upon your relationship, the more committed you’re likely to be to it, because that’s the Aquarius way! Hooking up with the waifs and strays of the zodiac, you’re an exceptionally kind and understanding partner with the ability to really turn someone’s life around.
Before you polish that halo, though, I should mention that you’re also capable of being emotionally aloof, contrary and perverse; for every heart you save, there’ll be another one you break, where a partner simply cannot figure you out. For the lover willing to take the rough with the smooth, living with you can be intoxicatingly wonderful, and never quite the same from one day to the next. An unpredictable genius, you bring flashes of originality to your romance, which always leads to interesting gifts, proposals and weekends away! The enigma around you just makes some people chase after you even harder, so for the typical Aquarius compatibility is not the problem, the problem comes when you want some time alone!
When it comes to the ethics of romance, you’re in a class of your own. Because you live by your own rules, your idea of fair play and fidelity may not match society’s idea, but you do have your own strict code of conduct and you don’t mean any harm. Whether your lover feels the same way about your behaviour is another matter, though. Aquarius compatibility can struggle with this, because you’re not averse to affairs and one night stands, often rationalising them away as meaningless.
If you’re in a relationship where you feel suffocated, your restless and independent streak might even deliberately seek out infidelity in order to make a stand. Obviously, this can cause severe problems for many of your potential partners, but you might argue that they’ve brought it on themselves by trying to control you too much. For your relationships to really work well, Aquarius, compatibility over freedom issues is essential. For instance, earth and water signs might find your independence too much to ask, while fire signs might be driven to jealous rages. A fellow air sign will understand….but you might be little more than ships which pass in the night if neither of you are good at expressing emotion. It’s not enough that you know you’re madly in love; let them know too! For an Aquarius, compatibility is also about learning to adapt your style to what your lover needs from you.
Instead of relying on horoscopes, Aquarius love compatibility is explained in detail in a star sign compatibility report from Astromatcha – based on your full time, date and place of birth, this will give you a much better insight into your love life than anything based on your sun sign alone.
