When exploring overall compatibility in astrology, it’s important to take more than the sun sign into consideration, as the rising sign, moon, and other planetary cross-connections will tell the whole story in relationships. That being said, Aquarius natives will tend to blend best with fire signs and air signs; and may need to work harder on relationships with water signs and earth signs.
Aquarius will typically find great affinity with fire signs, as they will understand each other’s active, spontaneous nature. Aries and Sagittarius are individualistic enough to not be put off by Aquarius’ cool and remote nature.
Sagittarius, especially, will enjoy Aquarius’ socially challenging and radical ways, and they will stoke each other’s tendencies to be unconventional.
Aquarius brings discernment, thoughtfulness, and objectivity to proud solar-ruled Leo, and they potentially have an opposites attract connection together that can be either magnetic or polarizing.
Air signs are a natural fit for Aquarius, as they share the same elemental expression. Aquarius and Gemini will enjoy conversing endlessly, sharing ideas in a harmonious, although largely intellectual relationship.
Aquarius and Libra will enjoy sharing ideas on issues of social justice and progressive thought. Due to its Saturnian influence, Aquarius may at times be more cool and remote and will have to remember to show affection to romantic Libra.
Aquarius with Aquarius could be a good match, in that they may feel they have finally met someone from their own galaxy, so to speak. They will enjoy debating, and innovating together, and may have an unconventional partnership.

Water signs bring vulnerability and emotional intelligence to help curious and abstract Aquarius to tap into their deeper wells of feeling.
Cancer will be very good at nurturing Aquarius, which they will likely need, but Cancer’s need for emotive connection and expression may feel foreign and overwhelming to rational Aquarius.
Pisces broadens Aquarius’ receptive capacities by bringing spiritual and philosophical awareness to their lives. Pisces, however, may be too private and sensitive to fully appreciate Aquarius’ radical and contrarian nature.
Mars-ruled Scorpio can bring sexual magnetism to a relationship with Aquarius, but the two may share very little in common in the end. Scorpio’s jealous tendencies are as deeply rooted as Aquarius’ judgmental ones, and so they may stubbornly hold their own elemental ground and have conflicts often.
Though earth signs can potentially stabilize and ground Aquarius’ dispersive and unusual energies, they may be the hardest for those born under the sign of the Water Bearer to relate to.
Capricorn, the authoritative cardinal earth sign, shares Saturnian rulership with Aquarius, so there may be some common ground. Capricorn, however, tends to be practical and honors tradition, where Aquarius is innately unconventional, driving them to disagree on their basic values.
Taurus, although dependable and loving, may be a bit too rooted to roll with Aquarius’ “out there” ways. Both are in fixed signs, and much like the dynamic between Aquarius and Scorpio, there will be stubborn stand-offs between the Water Bearer and the Bull.
Aquarius and Virgo may blend with their analytical natures; however, Aquarius may be surrounded by gadgets and clutter, which would confound and annoy practical Virgo. Virgo likes to be useful, but Aquarius always questions practicality, making this too much of an odd pairing to make it last.
