As an independent, quirky Aquarius with humanitarian instincts, you need a partner who understands your deep love of people and desire to make the world a better place. Airy Gemini and Libra are your greatest fans, while conservative or controlling signs won't "get" you at all.
You are an original and independent person, who needs to make your own contribution to the common good. You can be fun-loving and friendly in a quirky unemotional, impersonal, intellectual way. You may be motivated by your enjoyment of group activities within a circle of friends. You have a strong mind and are often at the cutting edge of technology, spirituality and culture. Fireworks can go off when you get together with an impulsive Aries, who may be as innovative and independent as you. Aries partners are nearly always ready for a new project or enterprise. Just say the word and they are ready to go. They are cheerful as well, and prefer to project a courageous and happy disposition to the world.
Sometimes, however, their independence can get in the way of harmonious interactions in a group situation for they like to do things in their own way and at their own pace. You may get frustrated with your Aries lover, especially when he or she is being headstrong and exhibiting impatience with you or others.
Although you two are typically compatible, this trait can make it tough for you to work together well with mutual interest. You each enjoy the pleasure of self-motivated adventures. You, however, may be more inclined to the group setting, while your mate may seek to go it alone. This dilemma can get in the way, especially when you are creating your social calendar. If you have Venus in Capricorn or Pisces, this problem can become difficult to resolve, although your Moon in an fire sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) can increase compatibility.
Together, you make an exciting and active couple, for neither of you is likely to stay put for too long. Your Aries lover will certainly challenge you to pay attention to other people's points of view on a personal level. You have great potential if you can learn to deal with the simple practicalities of everyday life as you bridge the future of humanity with your individual needs of the moment.
You are independent and your eclectic social views attract you to unique kinds of family arrangements. You seek to align yourself with individuals who share your passionate social values and sometimes even radical ideals. You are much more interested in sustaining intellectual friendship than romantic love, although you can be extremely devoted and loving once they have commited. Even as a parent, you tend to be friendly, aloof, and seek to encourage your children to find their own lot in life. This is so different than Taurus, who is fiercely simplistic, parentally protective and connected to basic values of home, security and finances.
Once your Taurus lover has let you into his or her heart and home, it is very nearly impossible to let you go. Therefore, you may have to put up with your partner's ex-partners, children and extended family for a lifetime. This loyalty and care are at the core of the Taurus's foundation. Oddly enough, although you pride yourself in being open, you can resist change as much as your stubborn Taurus partner, who may find your independent ways threatening to the security of the home and family. But once you think it through, you can change in a millisecond, like a flash of lightning, whereas your Taurus Bull plods slowly through changes fighting and resisting along the way. You may find your mate's stubbornness and tenacity a bit smothering. If you have the Moon in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) or water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), your chances of a happy relationship are dramatically improved.
Once the two of your find the right niche for your friendship and love, you can endure a long life of progressive growth and deep love together.
You are drawn to intelligent individuals who are superior communicators. You may not tolerate mediocre thinkers, preferring to relate with those who express progressive ideas with intellectual finesse. When you meet quick-witted and mentally agile Gemini, you can be swept off your intellectual feet, for the way to your heart is through language and ideas. You'll get along famously with your restlessly chatty Gemini friend, for both of you can plunge into the endless pools of cultural, personal and interpersonal communication, scanning the air waves for more and more intellectual fun.
Together you can become information junkies, altering your life to support your passionate fascination with words. You'll look for ways to express your love for one another through eclectic ideas and carefully communicated perceptions. You make a life together that defies normal classifications. The biggest potential problem for this relationship is the lack of grounded practicality and your mutual eagerness to move away from emotions and toward rational logic. If either of you has the Moon in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) or earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) you'll have a better chance to stabilize your compatible relationship for the long haul. If not, this may be a wonderful relationship that doesn't last very long.
You are both curious, needing room to roam as you explore the vast territories of the mind. You are friendly as a couple, and your home-probably filled with computers and books-will reflect your diverse interests as the two of you carve out a life that attracts a variety of people from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures.
You are intellectually oriented and can be happiest when you have enough space to be as eclectic as you need. Your main planet, Uranus symbolizes the enlightenment, awakening and freedom. You enjoy the electric buzz of groups and you thrive on the dynamics of intellectual exchange and mutual friendship. It is true that you can be an outstanding friend, yet in relationships, you can maintain an emotional distance so as not to become emerged in the other person's feelings. While you prefer to remain aloof and carefree, your Cancer lover needs close emotional contact and reassurance.
The Moon is the key planet of Cancer, which binds them to their emotions, draws them into sensitive encounters with loved ones and family, and requires them to feel their changing moods like the Crab watches for the changing tide. Your Cancer lover can easily give emotional support to those around them, but finds it difficult to ask for what they need.
Obviously, there are some differences between the two of you and you'll each need to adjust your basic nature in order to maintain a solid and loving rapport. You may not show your emotions outwardly, choosing to hold your feelings within. Even with their hard outer shells, Cancers cannot hide their feelings and tend to cry more easily than others. Your partner may be confused by your emotionally distant ways, which can make him or her feel insecure. Meanwhile, you may find your mate simply needs too much emotional attention. If Venus in your chart is in Pisces or if the Moon is in any water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), then you will feel more comfortable hanging out in the emotional realms with your lover.
If you can get past your fear of emotional attachment so you can strike a balance in this relationship, the two of you can create a unique home with unusual decor, fine detail, and may enjoy the virtues of a progressive and uplifting family life.
You enjoy the splendor of community life and all of the attention attached to it. You like to be an important cog of a greater wheel of activity that is able to produce advanced and impressive results. Otherwise, your may feel like you are lacking purpose and become intolerant of yourself and others.
In many ways, Leos are your opposite. They love the fanfare of dramatic and colorful exhibition. They need the group, not to feel a part of it, but to be recognized and appreciated by it. Leos typically will join in the greater collective as long as they have a special place to shine. Put them on center stage, while you may be happier in advertising or technical support. Your Leo lover needs your ongoing approval in order to continue to thrive.
On the other hand, you tend to be self-motivating and may not be interested in fluffing the feathers of the Leo's ego needs. Your lover is more vulnerable than you realize, and can be hurt by your natural aloofness. You and Leo are opposite signs on the zodiac wheel, and therefore, as different as you are, you each can add a great deal to the other's perspective of life.
You are both fixed in your individual ways, yet this relationship will make or break, depending upon your individual willingness to change, grow and share in progressive ways. If the Moon or Mars in your chart is in a fire sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius), your chances for compatibility are improved as you will tend to share more activities and interests.
Ultimately, you can learn to advance your creative skills while learning from the expressive and warm-hearted Leo. This is a dynamic relationship that can combine your two very different individual lifestyles into a solid and enduring partnership.
You are community-oriented with a strong desire to express your intellectual interests that will, in some way, pave the way to a better future. You may find yourself involved with organizations or institutions that hold concern for the greater needs of humanity. Intelligent and friendly, you have strong values and are happiest if life is imbued with purpose and integrity. Your Virgo lover is connected to the planet Mercury, and is also intellectually astute in the observation of the higher needs of the community and the world-at-large. Highly efficient and well organized Virgos appeal to your keen mental abilities.
This is a relationship that begins and stays on a mental plane. Even the physical act of making love is first and foremost a mental activity for the two of you and if you cannot do it in your mind and if you cannot talk about it with each other, than it may not be satisfactory.
One of the conflicts you face is how differently you each approach life. You are driven by originality and invention, offering new ideas and insight into all endeavors. Your Virgo is driven by accuracy and precision, focusing more on the details than the broad concepts. You may seem odd and quirky to your down-to-earth lover. He or she will most probably seem too caught up in the practical limitations of your best ideas and you may tire of the criticism, however well-intended it may be.
If Mercury or Venus in your chart is in Capricorn, your chances for compatibility are improved. With your Moon in any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn), you'll be better equipped to understand the needs of your Virgo lover.
This can be a productive and well-intentioned relationship as long as you can learn to accept your partner's need for analysis and detail.
You are highly intelligent and need the company of refined friends in stimulating and progressive environments. Accordingly, you are astutely aware of the people you choose to relate with-preferring unusual, bright, and eccentric folks as friends and lovers. You are not attracted to crude and thoughtless individuals, and keep a distance from situations that offend your highly tuned sensibilities.
In Libra, you meet someone who is tasteful, refined, creative, and dedicated to the pursuit of beauty. All this fits your ideal and it is a good place to start a relationship. Libra's key planet is Venus, and as such they are attracted to peace in human relationships and are committed to finding balance in all that they do. Your Libra lover is well-intentioned with a great need to relate with others-including you-with dignity and awareness.
The two of you can get along very well together as you both possess a unique sense of style, intelligence and creativity. One problem may arise from your blunt honesty. If you are asked for the truth, you will give it, whatever the consequences. Your radical approach to intellectual honesty can be offensive to your partner, who may wish you'd think about the impact of your position before stating it and then letting the chips fall as they may.
If Venus in your chart is in Capricorn, your utilitarian values may clash with your mate. If Venus in your chart is in Pisces, the two of you may struggle to find common ground in what you like.
You are both mentally motivated air signs and you can have a relationship that is simulated by the elegance of language, even when it comes to physical pleasures. In an intimate relationship, the two of you together can delight in the magical exploration of your sexuality as a means to reach higher realms of the soul.
You are an independent person that does not like to be dominated or suppressed. You will clash with the authority and power of the establishment, often choosing to move beyond confines of traditional structures. On the other hand, you can create your own rigid structures as you are highly opinionated and can be intellectually snobbish at times. Needless to say, this inflexibility can bother those who share some of the same traits.
When you hook up with a Scorpio, you meet someone who may be less overt in their desire to overthrow the establishment. They are, however, also keenly aware of power struggles and authority issues. They, too, have fixed ideas and notions about the world they live in, and prefer to engage with people with similar outlooks and beliefs politically and socially. This is the strength and weakness of this relationship.
If you can find a common ground that sustains both of your ideals and core beliefs, then this union is meant to thrive. If not, you may put most of your energy into disagreements and power struggles between the two of you. Personal life issues can be just as heated and conflicting as global ones, so it is best for you two highly intense and intelligent people to make sure you stand on shared territory before engaging in a long-term relationship.
On another front, you may find that your Scorpio lover is too emotional. His or her intensity can create the possibility of mind-bending sexual encounters, but you may not be willing to pay the price of admission. You feel more comfortable in an intellectually-driven relationship with less emphasis on irrational feelings. If, however, the Moon or Mars in your chart is in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), you'll be more eager to jump into the emotional depths.
The power of your love can prevail, even over these differences, but it may not be easy. If the two of you truly love each other, you will find a way to achieve a balance of power in the union.
You are innovative and original in your pursuits. You are attracted to others who share common concerns in the world as long as you think they are intelligent, compassionate and well intentioned. Yours is an intellectual attachment at first, and you can enjoy your friendship with a Sagittarius, remaining loyal and trustworthy through thick and thin. Since you are not emotionally charged, it is best for you to relate to others through rational thinking...and rationally, your Sagittarius lover scores enough points for you to pursue the relationship.
Sagittarius makes a fine companion for you. He or she is goal-oriented, dynamic in their global and international interests and shares a common desire to bring a broader perspective into the minds of the collective. Whereas you tend to be motivated by originality, your partner is motivated by high ideals. This is a good mix, for you can easily share your vision with good humor and intelligence with your friends and with the company of well-educated groups and individuals.
Your Sagittarius lover may not be cuddly, but that's okay with you. You'll gladly allow your mate the room needed to follow his or her adventurous spirit, if in return he or she gives you the emotional distance you need to feel comfortable.
If the Moon or Mars in your chart is in Virgo or Pisces, compatibility may be more difficult, for you may have conflicting needs.
Ultimately, this is an exciting and active union that produces and inspires big ideas and innovative living. The two of you are highly compatible, and can go the distance with an emotionally satisfying union.
Although you are inventive, original and eccentric, you live according to a set of values that are based on humanity rather than individuality. You can be less self-centered than other signs, and remain caring and compassionate as you pursue resolution to world conflict and community dissonance. You have an advantage to the degree that you are able to remain detached from heated debates and controversy. In fact, you may avoid confrontation, especially when emotions are flying about.
Capricorns are dignified and quiet in their pursuit of purpose and accomplishment. They, too, are not overtly emotional, often appearing cold or distant in personal situations. One area of challenge in your relationship with a serious Capricorn would be the feeling world, since you each-for different reasons-may choose to avoid the emotional realms.
You may find your sure-footed Goat too conservative for your non-traditional tastes, while he or she thinks you are weird. On the other hand, if you can learn to appreciate the stability he or she may offer, you'll actually be more able to live your life on the edge. Of course, you'll need an exceptional Capricorn-one who won't judge your tendency to throw away the past in order to embrace the future. The good news is that you two can maintain a high degree of respect for one another, although you may find it difficult to express tender affection and vulnerable feelings with each other.
If you have the Moon in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) or in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), your chances for compatibility is increased.
This is not an easy relationship. It can, however, be successful and long-lasting if you each can get past your fears about your basic differences of style. You must express your respect and love to each other, thereby allowing trust to develop and overcome your differences.
When two individuals with the same sun sign meet, there is often immediate compatibility. The big question is whether your Aquarian mirror image can complement you and bring to the relationship enough qualities that you need and do not already possess. You are intellectually independent, original and eccentric.
Your Aquarian just may be as quirky as you are, but this may or may not work. If you've each been pulled into different lifestyles, it may be impossible for you to find a compromise as to how you live your life.
You'll each need to give the other wide latitude, allowing free expression to override emotional attachment. This need for freedom can be so strong that it takes precedence over the relationship itself, and can doom this partnership to an early, but amicable ending.
If either of you -- both is better -- have the Moon or Mars in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) or in an water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), chances for a long-term relationship are increased. Regardless of the other planetary placements, the two of you will probably be busy in groups and friendship circles, sharing the same inspiration from political, global, and community news. In giving each other plenty of emotional space, you can behave as best pals, even if you are lovers.
Romantically, you'll need to pay special attention to find ways to spice up the emotional and physical aspects of making love if you want to share a fulfilling life. Without conscious attention to this, you may be more mechanical and less sensual in your expression. Nevertheless, the two of you can create a totally unique relationship that defies all categorization, and one that enriches you both.
You Aquarians are broad minded and humanistic in your altruistic dealings with groups, organizations and individuals. You strive to bring a greater harmony to world affairs through your keen alertness and concern for others. Your awareness is not an emotional understanding as much as it is a rational and intelligent observance of the world around you.
Meanwhile, Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, is a kaleidoscope of intuitive understanding and compassion. Pisces folks are aware of the troubles in the world-at-large and carry this perspective forward with sensitivity, gentle care and empathy. But they are not as intellectually oriented as you may be. This represents a basic difference of styles.
You are motivated by ideas and concepts. He or she is motivated by compassion and wordless feelings. If you can get past this difference, together you are inspired to advance the mind and heart of humanity. You will share a concern for the welfare of others and may become connected through volunteer programs, charity work or non-profit organizations.
You'll need to learn how to cherish and incorporate the imaginative and intuitive gifts of your Pisces into your sometimes detached intellectual framework. If Mercury or Venus in your chart is in Pisces, this will be much easier for you to do. In fact, if the Moon in your chart is in any water sign, you'll have an increased chance of making this relationship work.
Your lover will, in turn, need to learn how to communicate in rational and non-emotional ways at times-even if this is counter-intuitive-in order to help you understand his or her needs. If you two can achieve this balance, a emotionally and intellectually satisfying relationship can endure hardship and obstacles.
