The Aquarius Woman
If you were born between January 20th and February 18th, you’re in luck! You are an Aquarius, the best zodiac sign, a very esteemed and wise person (so says the Aquarius writer of this article).
So we may not exactly be esteemed or wise. But we are fun, and that’s what counts! We are great to be around and most everyone loves spending time with us.
Aquarius women have multi-faceted personality traits. Some mix well with other zodiac signs, making a compatible relationship. However, there are a select few we should avoid when determining marriage compatibility.
Aquarius: The free spirits
Aquarius women are free-spirits. If you think you are going to be able to tie us down, think again. We are independent and would rather live our lives to the beat of our own drum than be part of an orchestra. This trait also ties in with how much fun we like to have. Aquarius women hate boring situations and avoid them when they can. As great of a trait as being a free-spirit is, it means when we find a partner, we are not open to our partner’s opinions if they are not the same as ours. There’s a negative side of this personality trait though: being independent and a free-spirit also makes us lonely sometimes. We don’t feel a deep connection with very many people, which makes it hard to find a compatible mate.
Aquarius: the helping woman
Although we are independent, we still see value in helping others. We lend a hand when it’s needed and we are caring individuals. If you’re the mom of your friends, this might be why. You don’t expect anything in return for your valiant efforts, as you don’t need recognition or commendations from other people (that independence and free-spirit in you). Being able to help others is enough for us.
Aquarius: Temper Tantrum Queens
We don’t freak out often, but when we do, we completely lose it. Most of the time, everyone will see a free-spirited, helping Aquarius woman. But if someone pushes us over the edge, Aquarius women become a tornado, destroying everything in our path, a negative side no one ever wants to see. However, we are often misperceived as being this way all the time due to our independence and appreciation for being alone.
Compatibility Of Traits
Our personality traits best coincide with the traits of Gemini, Leo and Sagittarius. We do not get along with Taurus or Scorpio. See below for the facts of why we do or do not make great matches for these signs.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The traits of Aquarius and Gemini are most compatible and make the best matches. If your boyfriend is a Gemini, then you have a lot to look forward to!
They are very similar to Aquarius women, as we both like to be challenged intellectually and a pretty good conversation will come from even just a single date (think about an entire marriage worth!).
Overall, Gemini and Aquarius are 85% compatible, the only thing bringing the percentage down being the chance that either one could bail out of the relationship without many emotional attachments. Both of the personality traits are free-spirited, which makes it hard to be emotionally dependent on one another. This would make committing to marriage difficult, and the idea of divorce easier. Gemini act impulsively, so the decision to either marry or break up may not have been thought through, which may cause issues in the marriage. However, aside from this, Gemini and Aquarius have it all—trust, loyalty, intellect, and a healthy sex life.
Leo (July 21-August 22)
Leo is ruled by the force of fire. Aquarius’ sign is the bearer of water. Even if a Leo is arrogant and egotistical, Aquarius women can extinguish that fire and bring Leo men back down to earth and realize the facts. Leos also like to be independent and their partner must be able to respect that, which is why a Leo and Aquarius are a great fit. Leo men would make a good marriage partner for Aquarius women, as long as the Leo is able to let go of his big ego for the sake of love.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Sagittarius is also a fire sign. However, they are not egotistical. Rather, the fire Aquarius may help extinguish is the impatient trait of Sagittarius. Sagittarius men also value freedom above all else. Who best to give them freedom than those that want it as well? You can have intellectual conversations with men of this sign, but be careful not to be stubborn about your opinion, as we are many times. Sagittarius men like to form their own opinions about intellectual matters. Even with cold hard facts, let them figure it out on their own.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
My boyfriend just makes the cusp of this category. Am I worried? Nah. Although Taurus and Aquarius’ compatibility is low due to the lack of communication, there is still a way they can make it work. It is a challenging partnership but a rewarding one in the end, if both of you can bear to accept the others’ traits. Taurus men typically are by the book and not ones to venture off the path. Aquarius women like to do the opposite—burn the book and create a new path each time. Taurus men also wish their partners had more of a clingy trait. They like to feel loved and wanted. Unlike Sagittarius men, Taurus men want a women who is more emotionally attached. Unfortunately, we exhibit traits of emotional detachment.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Although Scorpios are also independent and self-reliant, they tend to be dominating in a relationship. Aquarius women don’t want to be tied down and want to remain as a free spirit, so these traits tend to clash (which explains so much about my past relationships who have been Scorpios!).
Aquarius Women and Marriage
Although we are free-spirited, we are open to the idea of marriage, as long as it is with someone compatible. Check your sign and your partner’s sign to see if your traits mesh well or clash.
