Don’t let the Water Bearer fool you–he may be carrying water, but his affinity is with Air–the element of intellectual curiosity and clarity. Intellectual stimulation always comes before physical stimulation, but once you pique his mind, his body often follows. In love, Aquarius is inventive, generous and tolerant. Being in a relationship with an Aquarian male, writes Joanna Woolfolk in “The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need,” is like living in a carnival–there’s always another new, exciting ride.
The Best Match
Aquarian males crave intelligent, witty conversation, something at which Geminis excel. The Gemini woman is witty, vibrant and versatile, possessing an agile mind and a healthy curiosity about herself, her lover and the world around her. Her changeable nature enchants the Aquarius male and is often enough to satisfy his thirst for variety and new experiences. He is as charmed by her empathetic side as he is drawn to her intellect. Their relationship will outlast many of those built purely on physical attraction because it combines friendship, challenge and stimulation.
When the Aquarian male meets an intellectual equal–or superior–the rest of the world fades away to insignificance. This is the pair sitting alone in a corner at the party, completely engaged in each other. That doesn’t mean they’re not social, but their social lives will often revolve around their intellectual pursuits or around progressive causes to which they’ve committed themselves.
The Aquarian male takes the role of parenting seriously, not just in terms of his responsibility as a parent to his own children, but in his role of raising the next generation. He’s likely to become a bit of a disciplinarian with a strong focus on how his children’s behavior affects the world around them. A Gemini mother can leaven the heavy lessons with more personal, practical advice. Both parents, however, value creativity and individuality and will strive to raise independent children who can think for themselves.
Aquarius and Gemini both crave creativity and variety in their love lives, and are both ingenious and versatile enough to provide those qualities for each other. When Woolfolk suggests that a marriage between an Aquarius and a Gemini is devoted, affectionate and companionable rather than passionately physical, she misses the point that words are passionate to this couple. As long as they never run out of things to talk about, their attraction to each other will never wane.
The Aquarian male may also find a good match in Sagittarius, who can match wits with him in any contest, as well as keep up with him socially and sexually. Sagittarius is easygoing enough to shrug off Aquarius’ sometimes dogmatic views, and Aquarius is innovative enough to intrigue Sagittarius’ sense of the visionary.
