Aquarius Work Compatibility: The Idea Person
Check out how each zodiac sign works best with Aquarius
You are the perfect person for a grand brainstorming session, Aquarius! Witty, innovative, and original, you love new things and coming up with cutting-edge ideas. Your coworkers love your vision, but be careful to include others in your process -- you have a tendency to ignore others’ feelings while focusing on the big picture.
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Aquarius and Aries
This is a lively partnership that affords you both plenty of excitement. Aries is a pioneer, and you’re always eager to embark into new territory. The Ram can’t abide by routines, and you welcome varied work responsibilities. Your colleague is a risk-taker, and you’ve never shied away from danger. So what could go wrong? Well, for one thing, neither one of you is especially good with human relations. Yes, you’re sociable and Aries is charming, but both of you are flummoxed when confronted with people who feel hurt or misunderstood. If you’re going to have a successful partnership, you may want to rely on an Earth or Water sign to advise you on human resources issues.
Aquarius and Taurus
On the surface, it may seem like you and Taurus are like oil and water. You’re interested in all things strange and unfamiliar, while the Bull seeks comfort in timeworn routines. You like to build castles in the air, whereas Taurus has their feet planted firmly on the ground. You like to give money away, but your colleague wants to save it for a rainy day. So how can you possibly work together? By using each other’s strengths to mitigate your respective weaknesses. For instance, it would be wise to entrust Taurus with financial matters, while you focus on product development. Similarly, the Bull can make your work space attractive, while you advertise your products and services. If you’d like to work together, consider the recording industry, retail sales, or real estate development.
Aquarius and Gemini
Working with Gemini can be a sheer delight for you, Aquarius. That’s because you’re both sharp, witty and innovative. Ideas bounce off the walls when the two of you are in the room. Yet while you’re both bursting with plans, neither one of you is especially adept at carrying them out. When push comes to shove, you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and do the hands-on work, since Gemini is incapable of prolonged focus. That doesn’t mean this sign will be idle while you toil, however. There’s nobody better at dealing with last-minute emergencies than Gemini. Hand off all such problems to this willing and able colleague. If you go into business together, you could find great success in the airline, television, or telecommunication industry.
Aquarius and Cancer
This is a challenging work partnership that requires plenty of compromise. Cancer likes a cozy, familiar office environment, whereas you prefer a professional, detached atmosphere. The Crab is incredibly emotive, while you’re utterly logical. Your colleague likes working with tangible products, while you prefer dealing with concepts. The best way to bridge this gap is to draw on each other’s strengths. For instance, Cancer has strong leadership skills that can serve you well. This colleague can champion causes, delegate responsibilities, and make long-term plans that serve the organization’s greatest good. Meanwhile, you’re gifted at coming up with innovative solutions to stubborn problems. If you go into business together, you may want to consider putting an interesting twist on a nurturing profession like catering, animal care, or teaching.
Aquarius and Leo
Working with a Leo can be an interesting experience. The two of you are complete opposites. For one thing, Leo does work for the glory -- you do it for personal satisfaction. For another, Leo is interested in style, whereas you’re more concerned with substance. Lions are extremely emotional, but you’re totally logical. Is there any common ground between you? Well, you’re both Fixed signs, which means you need an element of security in your jobs. Even your desire for constant intellectual stimulation won’t prompt you to unnecessarily upset the apple cart. For another, both of you have incredible stamina and can see difficult projects through to fruition. If you go into business together, you might want to consider working in television, film, or radio. Naturally, Leo should be the performer, while you work in some technical capacity.
Aquarius and Virgo
You may not have a lot in common with Virgo, but you do respect this colleague. While it’s true that you like to look at the big picture while the Virgin wants to focus on small details, you’re both very logical. Emotion doesn’t factor into many of your decisions. While other colleagues are busy having temper tantrums or going on ego trips, the two of you have got your noses to the grindstone. Granted, you find Virgo’s methods a bit stuffy, while this sign thinks you could stand to be a lot more efficient, you can produce some remarkable work together. If you’d like to go into business together, consider running a store that sells recycled products. Alternately, you could operate a popular yoga studio or health food store. If you work for another employer, let Virgo handle money matters, while you attend to promotional campaigns.
Aquarius and Libra
This is a harmonious work partnership that is both productive and fun. Libra shares your sharp intellect, making for exciting brainstorming sessions. And although you might find this colleague a tad bit clingy at times, you admire their team spirit. Do yourself a favor and let Libra spruce up your work space with plants, pictures, and creature comforts. Although you may not think such niceties have an effect on your productivity, tasteful Libra will prove you wrong. The two of you work best with concepts, rather than products. You’d do well in any business involving patents, intellectual property, or scientific research. If you’re working for an employer, let Libra deal with the clients, while you cope with authority figures. You’re much better at holding your ground with pushy people.
Aquarius and Scorpio
You and Scorpio are Fixed signs, which leads to an interesting work dynamic. Both of you are firmly convinced that your methods are right. But whereas Scorpio bases their theories on emotion, you rely on cold, hard facts. Actually, each of you is gifted in entirely different areas. Scorpio is adept at ferreting out secrets and deceptions, while you’re better at dealing with straightforward transactions. If you’re working for an employer, let Scorpio handle the dirty work, while you manage the human relations end of things. Always listen to your colleague’s advice when it comes to who can be trusted. Scorpio has an uncanny intuition when it comes to frauds.
Aquarius and Sagittarius
This is a very compatible work relationship that should afford you both great satisfaction. You love the Archer’s humor, humanitarianism, and high spirits. In turn, Sagittarius admires your intelligence, innovation, and independence. Will there be times of trial? Yes, especially when Sagittarius displays their legendary flakiness. This sign simply can’t stay focused. On the other hand, your colleague will find you inflexible over seemingly petty issues, like where the pencils should be kept or how low the window shade should be drawn. If you can manage to overlook each other’s idiosyncrasies, you can form a highly productive partnership. Going into business together? Consider the law, teaching, or imports and exports. If you work for an employer, give Sagittarius short-term assignments, while you attend to projects that require sustained attention.
Aquarius and Capricorn
Your Capricorn colleague is decidedly old-fashioned, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. True, you’re always looking for ways to dispose with outmoded traditions. That doesn’t mean, however, that all the old methods are bad. Be open to the Goat’s suggestions, as they can add stability to your job. As an Aquarius, you’re always looking for opportunities to shake things up, but even you must admit that a successful career requires a measure of security. Capricorn can provide just this stability. If you pay tribute to this sign’s leadership skills, they’ll give you the freedom you need to develop innovative strategies, products, and work methods.
Aquarius and Aquarius
It’s hard to startle you, but it is possible when working alongside another Aquarius. You’re an innovative pair whose creative power is unstoppable. You’re both entranced by anything that’s on the cutting edge of technology. Working with computers can pose an exciting challenge. Alternately, you may do well in telecommunications, radio, or television. If you’re working for an employer, you may operate best by having a brief brainstorming session in the morning, then going your separate ways afterward, only to meet up at day’s end to compare notes. You’re both quite independent and come up with your best ideas when left to your own devices. It can be hard work to change this colleague’s mind, as Aquarius is a Fixed sign. Other than that, this should prove to be a very productive partnership.
Aquarius and Pisces
You’re amused by the Fish’s quirky work methods, while they’re delighted by your tremendous vision. Yes, this colleague can be a bit of a flake sometimes. But you have to admit that you’ve got your weak points, too. For one thing, you’re not the most effusive person in the world. It’s hard for others to gauge whether you like a project, hate it, or are completely indifferent to it. That being said, if you work harder to make an emotional connection with Pisces, your colleague will double their efforts to meet deadlines. If you are working for an employer, let Pisces deal with the touchy-feely aspects of your work, while you attend to the analytical aspects of the job.
