Aquarians, born at the end of January into the middle of February, tend to be intelligent and friendly. They can also be withdrawn and grumpy from time to time. Those born under Aquarius do well when they are matched with others who have opposite traits or with a partner who can see eye-to-eye with them.
Aquarius’ element is air, while Aries’ element is fire. Air sustains fire, so an Aries/Aquarius pairing will usually go over well. People born under Aries usually have a zest and passion for life, which the Aquarius will find attractive. Aquarius’ level-headedness will help to temper Aries’ passion when it gets out of control. An Aquarius may find that she can work with an Aries, both in love and in life. An Aries will have the ambition and drive to help an Aquarius see projects and ideas through.
Romance meets friendship when Libra and Aquarius get together. The pair is likely to be great friends as well as great lovers. They will connect on both a physical and mental level. An Aquarius will appreciate the way Libra is constantly doting on her and a Libra will love the joy for life and excitement an Aquarius brings to the relationship. A Libra/Aquarius couple will have to make sure to balance their relationship, though. A Libra will get upset if he thinks an Aquarius is constantly yielding to him. A Libra partner will also need to temper Aquarius’ occasionally mean and nasty side.
Gemini makes another great love match for an Aquarius, since both are ruled by the element of air. Aquarius is fixed air, while Gemini is mutable air. The two signs form a trine, or 120-degree angle on the zodiac chart, which can benefit them. Both partners in a Gemini/Aquarius match will appreciate being able to connect on an intellectual as well as physical level. Both partners tend to be adventurous and spontaneous, leading to an exciting and long-lasting relationship.
A relationship between Aquarius and Sagittarius will be a case of opposites attracting each other. Sagittarius is ruled by fire, the opposite of Aquarius’ ruling element, air. Aquarius tends to be more intellectual than Sagittarius, while Sagittarius tends to favor the physical. The match will work well if both are receptive to the other and willing to give up some independence to make the relationship work.
Once the couple gets over the initial bumps, a match between Leo and Aquarius can be exciting. Although the pair is ruled by opposite elements–fire and air–both are fixed, meaning that both will have to break down barriers to get to know the other. Since air can feed fire, Leo may find a match with Aquarius to be fulfilling.
