JUMP TO A SIGN:
Aquarius and Aries
You may literally see fireworks when you hook up with an impulsive Aries. If anyone is as innovative and independent as you are, it’s a Ram. Your partner will always be ready for a new project or experience. Just say the word, and they’re ready to go. Neither of you can stand to stay put for too long, and together, you make an exciting and active couple. Your Ram will teach you to accept points of view different than your own, and if you can both learn that being practical doesn’t always mean being boring, this is a relationship with long-term potential.
Aquarius and Taurus
Although you pride yourself on being open, you resist change just as much as your stubborn Taurus partner. The difference is, you’re also likely to change your mind at the drop of a hat, while Taurus refuses to give in or give up -- ever. Once your Bull lets you into his or her heart -- something that doesn’t happen easily -- it becomes impossible to let you go. You value your independence, and might feel smothered by this fierce determination. Likewise, a Bull might feel threatened by your independence, believing you aren’t really committed to the relationship.
Aquarius and Gemini
An airy Gemini can sweep you off your intellectual feet with that quit wit and mental agility. The way to your heart, after all, is through language and ideas. You’ll get along famously with a chatty Gemini right from the get-go. You’re both information junkies, and you can spend hours sharing, discussing, and dissecting everything you’ve learned. Yours is a friendly, easy communication, and you’ll express your feelings for each other in eclectic ways. Neither one of you is grounded, though, and you’ll have to be more practical to sustain the relationship.
Aquarius and Cancer
Aquarius and Cancers are almost polar emotional opposites. You don’t show your emotions outwardly, preferring to hold them within. Even with their hard outer shells, Crabs can’t hide their feelings. They also cry more than other signs. Your Cancer may be confused by your emotionally distant ways, and it can make him or her insecure. You may find that your Crab simply needs more attention and love than you’re capable of giving. This relationship will only work if you can get over your fear of emotional attachment -- no small feat for an Aquarius.
Aquarius and Leo
Aquarius and Leo are opposite signs. This means you’re very different, but also have the chance to learn from each other. If there’s one thing a Lion needs, it’s to be adored -- by everyone around him or her, surely, but by a lover first and foremost. Leos require a constant stream of attention and praise. You tend to be self-motivated, which means you may not be interested in stroking your Leo’s ego 24/7. You can easily hurt your partner with your natural aloofness, often without even realizing it. Compromise is the key to making this relationship work.
Aquarius and Virgo
This is a relationship that begins with a mental attraction and stays there. You are driven by originality and invention, offering new ideas and insight into everything you do. Your Virgo, on the other hand, is driven by accuracy and precision, focusing more on small details than the big picture. You may seem odd and quirky to your down-to-earth Virgo. He or she will most probably seem too practical and you may tire of the criticism, however well-intended it may be. This relationship will work if you learn to accept each other’s vastly different approach to life.
Aquarius and Libra
In Libra, you meet someone who is tasteful, creative, and dedicated to the pursuit of beauty. For you, this is a good place to start. Your Libra has good intentions, and treats others -- including you -- with decency and understanding. You are both more concerned with mental than physical attraction, and your relationship is stimulated by language and words. You’re radical approach to honesty may be a problem for peace-loving Libra, though. If you can learn to be honest without being brutal, you can have a long and happy relationship with a like-minded Libra.
Aquarius and Scorpio
You resent authority, and if there’s one thing you can’t stand, it’s being dominated or held down. When you hook up with a Scorpio, you meet someone who also understands power struggles. They aren’t plotting to overthrow the establishment the way you are, but they’ve certainly thought about it. Like you, Scorpios have strong ideas about the world they live in, and prefer to surround themselves with people who share their beliefs. Unlike you, Scorpios are intensely emotional people. You prefer mentally-driven relationships, and a Scorpio may be too much for you.
Aquarius and Sagittarius
You are innovative and unique, Aquarius. You are usually attracted to people who share your core beliefs, as long as you believe them to be intelligent, open-minded, compassionate, and well-intentioned. When you meet a Sagittarius, you are instantly attracted to them on a mental level. With an Archer, you’ll have a solid friendship and remain loyal through thick and thin. Since you’re not a particularly emotionally-charged person, you tend to relate to others through rational thought ... and rationally, Sagittarius scores enough points to win your heart.
Aquarius and Capricorn
A sure-footed Goat may be too conservative for your eclectic tastes. Likewise, a Capricorn will probably think you’re weird. If you manage to find an exceptional Goat -- one who won’t judge your tendency to throw away the past in order to embrace the future -- you’ll actually be able to live life even closer to the edge than you do now. Neither of you are particularly emotional people, so you may have a hard time expressing affection and vulnerable feelings with each other. The good news is, you’ll always be able to maintain a great deal of respect for each other.
Aquarius and Aquarius
Another Aquarian may be just as quirky as you are, but that doesn’t mean the relationship will work. If you have different lifestyles, for one, you might not be able to find a middle ground. Your need for independence can also be so strong that the relationship is doomed before it even begins. You’ll need to make sure you’re always giving your Aquarius enough freedom, and vice versa. On the romance front, you’ll have to make a conscious effort to spice things up frequently, or you could end up becoming mechanical with each other.
Aquarius and Pisces
Pisces are emotional creatures, while you’re more intellectually-oriented. You’ll have to learn how to incorporate the imaginative and intuitive gifts of your Pisces into your sometimes-detached mental framework. Your Fish 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, you’ll end up with an emotionally and intellectually satisfying relationship that can endure just about anything.
