Aquarians are the water-bearers, but make no mistake — they don’t go with flow, even though they love to think they’re carefree.
Aquarius signifies uniqueness, so Aquarians always have an opinion. However, sometimes — or most of the time — their opinions are shallow, because they are always trying to have one for the sake of standing out.
Aquarians need Pisces because Pisces have the depth Aquarians crave. Pisces need warmth to feel loved. Aquarians can have all the knowledge in their world, but they aren’t able to emotionally connect to people, which makes their philosophies appear cold. In this sense, Cancers will be perpetually disappointed trying to care for Aquarians.
No amount of warmth or nurturing Cancers give will make an Aquarius open up. An Aquarius wouldn’t be able to provide the vulnerability necessary to have a Scorpio in their life. For Aquarians, coldness is their natural state.
Aquarians and Leos are opposite of each other, but they’re more alike than both want to admit. Leos gain popularity by being likeable and people-pleasing, while Aquarians gain popularity by being the weird and quirky person in class who knows all the answers. They want to be known as loners, but still invited to every party.
Sagittarians won’t be able to stand Aquarian’s stoic nature and inability to let loose for once in their lives. Aries, like Cancers, will try to get Aquarians to dance at a party, only to be turned down more times than they can count. An Aquarius wouldn’t mind being around fire signs, if they weren’t always trying to get change them.
Being ruled by Saturn, Capricorns and Aquarians are durable and enduring. But, Aquarians are rooted in stagnant idealism, while Capricorns are realistic. Aquarians never see the world as it is, as they project their view of the world on to everyone. This is exactly why they won’t get along with Virgos, too.
Virgos and Aquarius will never shut up, but neither sign will actually listen to the other person. Both of them just want to hear their own voices. A Taurus would try to out-opinionate an Aquarius to no avail. An Aquarius spends all their time thinking about the world, but never self- reflects.
Aquarius and Libras wouldn’t have fun together, because they wouldn’t be able to agree on what fun is. For Libras, fun is going out, catching up with loved ones, treating themselves to a nice brunch. For Aquarius, fun is contemplating the problems of the world alone in their rooms with a podcast telling them their next opinion.
Geminis would be impressed by Aquarians’ abundance of knowledge, but would lose interest the next minute. An Aquarius doesn’t care enough about the people they’re speaking to, or to make the conversation interesting. They only care about the content. It’d be rare to spot two Aquarians together because both understand the other’s need for alone time, which for them is 24/7.
Aquarians know they have the ability to captivate the room, but they just don’t prioritize people like they do their ideas. An Aquarius has trouble with relationships because of their tendency to self-isolate. To make matters worse, they never even want to self-reflect, which makes this problem unknown to them.
An Aquarius wants to be seen as a mystery, but this makes them an enigma, so don’t bother.
