Aries and Aquarius

Basically, a person governed by Aquarius is intrigued by the weird, the unsual and the eccentric. Thus, he or she will be attracted to individuals who display these traits. Any potential Aries partner must therefore learn to cope with this curious mixture of friends and acquaintances who will be within the Aquarius circle. Since Aries prefers to associate with those who are successful and sophisticated, this may not work out very well and could drive the Aries partner to distraction. The exceptionally independent Aquarius soul refuses to be restrained from anything and will never quite allow the Aries partner to share in his or her private thoughts…and sometimes only barely into his or her private life. An Aries partner will perceive this as being secretive rather than independently private. Aries is second only to Aquarius in independence, but the world will know most of his or her innermost secrets due to the unique Aries trait of opening the mouth and inserting the foot. Such a habit is totally alien to natives of Aquarius. While the Aquarius person can be jealous and possessive of any partner, he or she rarely indulges in romantic interludes since there are far more other things to do and become engrossed with…in the opinion of Aquarius anyway. Thus, the Aquarius partner may not be a sexally active as Aries would like and eventually, the Aries partner may consider this to be selfish behavior. Basically, this is probably not a wise match for either side.

Nonetheless, this relationship will be anything but static and, given the vision associated with Aquarius and the action associated with Aries, can make for a highly creative pair…a match of two individuals who are competitive but seldom dull. Signs that are two apart on the Zodiac Wheel tend to have a special connection and this combination is no exception. This pair will be great friends who can communicate with each other extremely well. They will have a special understading of one another’s idealistic and enthusiastic outlook on life. In addition, both partners here crave excitement and new experiences…the wilder and more strange those experiences, the better. Indeed, both are into thrills and showing off. The most solid Aries/Aquarius relationships are probably those built upon a foundation of mutual admiration. The Aries partner will love the uniqueness of the Aquarius character, particularly the inventive vision of the world. In turn, Aquarius will love the energy and initiative associated with Aries since Aquarius is prone to get new ideas all the time, but sometimes finds it difficult to carry them out. However, since both sides to prize independence, the Aries tendency toward possessiveness can push the Aquarius partner to become aloof or detached as a self-preservation tactic. Still, there is a special connection with this pairing and although each will perceive the world in a somewhat different light at times, if they come come to understanding on this, thing will work well. Aries can be too involved for Aquarius and Aquarius may be a little too unpredictable for Aries, but Aquarius is probably the only Zodiac Sign that outshines Aries in terms of spontaneity. Provided both partners reassure each other that the relationship is important and secure, there is a good possibility for longevity.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars and Aquarius is ruled by the the planet Uranus. Aquarius obtains its marvellously progressive vision from Uranus and also receives social conscience and philanthropy from Saturn (the ruling planet of Aquarius prior to the discovery of Uranus). Mars makes a wonderful addition to this mix, bringing passion and direct action to all the lofty thoughts and ideals of Aquarius. Aries is governed by the element of Fire while Aquarius is governed by the element of Air. Air fuels Fire and helps it to spread. In a similar fashion, Aquarius can help Aries conjure up new schemes and then realize them. Aquarius stimulates Aries in an intellectual way…something most of the other Zodiac Signs fail to accomplish with an Aries individual. Since both Signs have wide-ranging interests, the mentally active Aquarius partner is certain to provide the physically active Aries native with plenty fuel for new adventures and crusades. Aries is Cardinal in quality and Aquarius is Fixed in quality. Hence, Aries furnishes Aquarius with the confidence to charge ahead rather than simply sitting in a laboratory concocting innovative and novel ideas. In turn, Aquarius helps Aries to stabilize and complete projects instead of leaping into new plans before completing old ones. There is much mutual respect and admiration here, which can go a long way to ironing out any obstacles in the relationship. Basically, there is potential for this pair to achieve much if they work together since Cardinal Fire and Fixed Air cover all the bases and this could become a union of vision and practice.

In essence, this combination represents something of a gamble. The unpredictable Aquarius partner is sure to affect the patience of Aries, while the instability of the Aries partner will surely provoke the goodwill of Aquarius. These are two very self-willed individuals and arguments are likely to result from the day they meet. By nature, Aquarius has the tendency to proscrastinate too much to please Aries but, with time and effort on both sides, this could prove to be a rather good match.
