Astrology: Aquarius Compatibility with Aquarius

All About Aquarius, New Expanded Edition, now available in paperback and Kindle formats

This is a great combination. The intellectual rapport is excellent and compatibility is high. Two Aquarians will respect one another’s independence. They don’t need to spend every moment together, and they are happy to allow each other the freedom to pursue hobbies and friendships outside their primary relationship. Neither is likely to be demanding or prone to insecurity, so these two shouldn’t weigh each other down with neediness.

Aquarians have a broad range of interests, but even if their interests don’t overlap, this won’t matter too much with this pairing. These two should get along well in day-to-day life. Both enjoy a good debate, but neither is prone to fighting unless their ascendants fall in scrappier signs. They can have plenty of fascinating discussions, and because they have outside interests and are drawn to the unusual, they will never run out of interesting new things to talk about. Given their sociable and humanitarian natures, two Aquarians may be drawn to the same social or charitable causes, political movements, or other group activities aimed at changing the world for the better, which provides an opportunity for bonding over shared passions.

Aquarians are not particularly domestic or house-proud, so if they live together, their place of residence may be simply a place to sleep, hang out with friends, and store belongings. Aquarians have a tendency to gather eclectic assortments of stuff, so their homes can become a chaos of random objects stored in unexpected places (or strewn across every available surface). Aquarians usually keep housework to a minimum because they’re more interested in ideas and experiences than the appearance of the material world around them.

Aquarians tend to process things rationally rather than emotionally, so although both individuals are quite forthright (even to the point of rudeness at times), neither is likely to do significant long-term damage to the other’s feelings. This mutual emotional detachment means that even romantic partnerships can be more like friendships than love affairs with this pair. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing because friendship is a better basis for long-term commitment than the torrid emotional roller coaster of a passionate romance.

Aquarians are not the most practical individuals, and two Aquarians will not stand in the way of each other’s more risky or ill-advised pursuits. They can also keep such a light hold on one another that they drift apart. However, an Aquarius-Aquarius match has a higher-than-average likelihood of lasting, and when two Aquarians do part ways, it’s more likely to happen because different interests have pulled them in new directions rather than the result of vicious battles or cold stalemates, so breakups between these two tend to be friendlier than those occurring with more combustible sun-sign pairings.

Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
