If you were born with the Moon in Aquarius, you are something of an emotional rebel – Uranus rules Aquarius, and this planet always brings a certain disregard for norms and conventions. When the Moon is in Aquarius, this rule breaking is expressed in terms of your emotional needs, moods and desires. Rather wilful and definitely eccentric, you spend a great deal of time in a world of your own – but it’s a world which relationship partners would dearly love to join too.
When Aquarius Moon compatibility breaks down, partners nearly always complain about your emotional aloofness and distance. You’re not a particularly demonstrative person, and you don’t indulge in public displays of affection. You also find it quite hard to talk about your feelings, or indeed to listen to others talking about theirs. The problem is that you’re not aloof – you’re just usually too busy with your intellect to pay much attention to your emotions. However, you do come across as rather cold to those who don’t know you well – or to those who are finding your relationship too difficult to handle. Aquarius Moon compatibility is best with someone who understands your need for freedom and independence, and who won’t take it personally if you’re not the touchy-feely type. You are romantic, but you prefer to show your love in unusual ways rather than through the traditional flowers and chocolates route. A partner who really “gets” you will find you to be loving, sincere and generous with your affections – on your own terms.
You are a sociable and gregarious person and you enjoy a wide circle of friends. On a friendship level, you find it much easier to deal with your emotions, and in order to Aquarius Moon compatibility to succeed, it’s essential that you and your partner are first and foremost best friends. When a relationship dies, you’ll still want to maintain this friendship link – it’s almost as if you’re sometimes relieved that the messy business of emotions is out of the way so that you can still enjoy this person’s company. Unfortunately, not all partners will understand this!
Because you believe so passionately in freedom, and because of your “at arm’s length” take on emotions, you are highly likely to enjoy – or indeed, actively seek – an open relationship of some kind. You don’t have a jealous bone in your body, and you don’t care in the least if society finds your chosen set up to be unconventional or undesirable. You are extremely honest in a relationship, and expect the same from your partner. Ironically for a Moon placing which seems so aloof, in this way the bond of trust you have with a partner can be much greater than with many other Moon placings.
Imaginative, creative, inspired and inspirational, you exude quite a magnetic draw to the right kind of partner. People are also attracted to you because of your humanitarian and ahead-of-their-time instincts – in many ways you are the eccentric among Moon signs, but no less charismatic for that.
