Although you might not seem to have much in common upon first inspection, the two of you may find that you share many of the same goals and ideals. Sure, you may go about achieving them in completely different ways, but you can still agree on what is important in the long run! If the Water Bearer can respect your need for tradition and you can be open to those Aquarian ideas for change, the two of you can make a very progressive team.
Although both Signs share the rulership of structured Saturn, as an Earth Sign, you may find it very hard to relate to the Water Bearer’s Air Sign nature. You thrive on outward and concrete expressions of affection, while Aquarius may seem detached and emotionally unavailable at times. Possessiveness is a natural instinct for you, but Aquarius is a fiercely independent and unpredictable soul. Furthermore, you have an affinity for all things traditional and familial, while Aquarius, due to the influence of Uranus, new-age co-ruler of that Sign, is inclined to do away with conventions and outdated practices. Because of these differences, this is not the best combination for romantic relationships, though the initial sexual attraction can turn into a good friendship. It can in fact be a very good combination for less intimate connections and partnerships.
As a Cardinal Sign, you generally want to take the lead in your personal affairs. Unfortunately, Fixed Sign Aquarius is not very good at following and likes to be in control of his or her own direction. However, if the Water Bearer comes to trust and respect you, he will be fiercely loyal to you and will support your efforts. Often you will find that you are both interested in improving the human condition, whether physically, mentally, or spiritually. When the two of you can work together to create a better society, you can accomplish great things.
This combination requires discipline, motivation – and the support of compatible Moon and Ascendant signs. While you may not have a strong emotional compatibility, you are often connected by the drive to improve the world around you. When you find common goals you can channel your combined energy into creating something positive. Otherwise it’s a difficult match.
