An Aquarius is a thinker, always trying to puzzle out the mysteries of life. Visionary, creative, curious, and energetic, it’s no wonder that many scientists and inventors have been born under this Sign, and that original Aquarius minds are often considered “eccentric” by other people.
In today’s society, the Aquarius is likely to have the latest tech gadget (or be inventing the next one), and the mix of their logical and creative abilities make them the cutting-edge thinkers they are.
Uranus, the planet ruling Aquarius, represents innovation and non-conformity.
The Aquarius often has such a busy mind that sleep is elusive. The element air represents the thinking qualities of Aquarius.
In love, an Aquarius can be very independent, unconcerned by the fact that other people have trouble figuring out what makes them tick, and allowing a partner so much freedom that it might be misconstrued as lack of interest.
Any Aquarius who is born on zodiac signs dates near the edges (or “cusp”) of the Aquarius sign will find some influences and effects of the neighboring sign on their personality.
This, of course, is part of the reason why not every Aquarius is exactly alike.
If your birth date falls near the border of Aquarius or Capricorn, or on the border between Aquarius and Pisces, you will see these personality traits affected by your zodiac signs:
- The Capricorn/Aquarius Cusp–People born on this cusp will tend to work without tiring whenever they work on a project that interests them. They also tend to be independent and individualistic, and sometimes a little critical of people who are less ambitious. Their opinions are often fixed and they stick with them, bolstered by their own sense of logic and their strong confidence in self. Even when it comes to leisure and hobby activities, they are likely to be competitive and enjoy company and conversation that let their conversational skills shine and engage with other people.
- The Aquarius/Pisces Cusp–People born on this cusp tend to have talents in both creative and scientific. They tend to be somewhat withdrawn or shy and value their independence. Their strongest characteristics tend to be compassion and a strong sense of visionary strength.
Aquarius compatibility with other zodiac signs
Here’s what you can expect in a relationship between an Aquarius and other zodiac signs…
The emotion of Pisces and intellect of Aquarius can be complementary–or they can create a rocky relationship and inability to connect easily.
Adventure combined with eccentric intellectualism–this match will never be dull. Strap on your adventure gear, because this pairing will take both parties to places they wouldn’t have ventured alone.
A Taurus may have the power to draw Aquarius out of intellectual pursuits to enjoy the creature comforts.
An Aquarius and Gemini tend to stick together inseparably. This can be a match made for life, due to the traits of both parties.
This relationship will be founded on mutual respect for one another’s strong points and skills. Where one partner excels, the other will encourage them, and both can learn from each other because of their mutual support.
The magnetic attraction between Leo and Aquarius keeps both parties interested indefinitely. The magic and chemistry seem never to go out of a romance between these two.
Intellect paired with intellect, a thoroughly thinking pair. Just don’t forget to mix in some fun and social activities, because left to themselves, this pair might live an entirely intellectual life of the mind. When they share their thinking with one another that can be a strong bond.
This will be a nurturing pairing, filled with communication and affection. It may be the type of relationship that other people envy because they see how closely connected this pair can be, and how deeply they enjoy and appreciate one another.
Curiosity and intrigue keep this two attracted. Lively minds and adventurous spirits will keep life interesting, and keep this pair interested in each other.
The ability of each to be comfortable with independence means they will give each other space and respect and appreciate one another’s chosen ventures in life. Paradoxically, they often grow close together because of the trust that follows from both parties having enough space for themselves.
These two are so very different than they can actually complement and complete one another. Where one party is uncomfortable, the other takes charge and leads the way, and in another situation, the roles might be reversed. Between the two, this pair can handle almost anything, because their talents and skills are so diversified.
With no one to dampen their eccentricities, this pair can be as quirky in combination as they please. Nobody can understand an Aquarius quite like another Aquarius, so let the “Age of Aquarius” reign when these two pair up together.
