While friendships may be easily cultivated, a long-term relationship can be hard to come by for the Aquarius woman. Aquarians tend to shy away from convention and commitment. Ruled by planets Saturn and Uranus, Aquarian women are constantly in motion and can be perceived as unreliable or elusive. Intimacy is challenging for the Aquarius woman and emotional contributions to relationships tend to run shallow. Free-spirited Aquarius does not require much affection and easily feels smothered in a relationship, which means she is best matched with similarly independent signs.
Aquarians are idealists and humanitarians, characteristics that serve them well in their professional life, but that sometimes work against them in love relationships. While the Aquarius woman is quite difficult at times, she can make a perfect partner when given the required emotional space with a mate who can endure her often impractical and unpredictable nature.
Airy Aquarius should avoid love matches with Earthy Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and tread carefully with Cancer and Gemini. Good partnerships include Aries and Libra. A psychic is a great resource for Aquarians who are having trouble finding true love connections.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Aquarius can find lasting love with Aries if they are willing to work at cultivating romance. Both signs like to have a good time and enjoy one another's biting sense of humor. Because both are independent by nature, the relationship flourishes if neither party attempts to take control. This pair will be fast friends and can be adventuresome lovers, but the relationship can quickly turn platonic. Aries is prone to emotional outbursts and cries for attention and affection, which are a sure-fire turn off for the Aquarius woman. Experiencing new things together or spending time apart can help reignite a dwindling spark.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
As an Earth sign, stubborn Taurus is not a good match for the Aquarius woman. Unconventional and free-spirited Aquarius has little in common with traditional Taurus, who craves commitment and security. This opposites-attract scenario makes things interesting at first, but the excitement quickly fades when the relationship becomes too much work. Taurus and Aquarius are also incompatible socially, the former being highly selective in their friendships and the later being Miss Popularity. Love matches between this unlikely duo are not impossible, but require a great deal of compromise.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
This is another good match for the Aquarius woman. However, the Aquarius woman must work to keep the romance alive with this fellow air sign. Aquarius finds an intellectual and comedic equal in free-spirited Gemini and the initial stages of the relationship are filled with passion. However, because you both shy from intimacy, it may be difficult to establish a deeper connection once the lust has worn off. If you can find a way around this, a Gemini can make a great partner and perfect playmate.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
This is a rare and incompatible pairing that can be smothering for the Aquarius woman and toxic for the insecure Cancer man. The Crab is the opposite of your unconventional nature and yearns for affection, which makes the Aquarius woman feel trapped. The Aquarius woman often takes the loyal and sentimental Cancer for granted in her attempts to gain some breathing room. Making this match work is not impossible, but requires significant compromise on the part of the Aquarian. If you're not up for a challenge, the Aquarius woman is better off looking for love with a more likely match.
Leo July 23 – August 22
While the physical component is bound to be steamy, a relationship between an Aquarius and a Leo man often lacks a deeper connection and intellectual stimulation. Although polar opposites in many respects, both signs love the limelight and can often compete for attention. Once again, the Aquarius woman may find herself feeling smothered by Leo's jealous tendencies and constant need for attention. Although a bit of a long shot, this pairing can work if Aquarius is willing to share the spotlight and show a bit more emotion and affection.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Although complimentary in some ways, a love match between a Virgo man and Aquarius is quite the odd combination. As an Earth sign, Virgo is introverted and judgmental, while the Aquarius woman is a social butterfly. However, you share a love for intellectual and humanitarian pursuits, which can help form a connection and balance out such vast differences in personality. While the mysterious Virgo may hold your interest for a while, eventually the relationship is likely to runs its course.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Probably the most successful love connection, Aquarius and the Libra man are compatible both physically and intellectually. Both free-spirited air signs enjoy travel and all forms of entertainment. Socially and conversationally you are two of a kind. However, you also share a tendency to shy from intimacy and commitment. Money management is bound to be an issue and Libra does not share your humanitarian vision. Most psychics would agree that this is an ideal match overall and worth working through any differences.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The intense and ambitious Scorpio man is not a good partner for the free-spirited Aquarian. A Scorpio will find you cold, while you find them jealous and controlling. However, you both appreciate a partner who is difficult to figure out and your differences once again keep things interesting. In order to make this odd pairing work, the Aquarius woman may need to downsize her social calendar and make an effort to share more interests with her partner.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
If you're looking for a passionate affair, then a Sagittarius man is your perfect match. Both independent, playful and free-spirited, this compatible pairing makes for a great no-strings-attached romp in the hay. Because you're so alike, a loyal friendship is likely to evolve, but either party will run in the other direction if commitment becomes an issue. Passions quickly fizzle out with any talk of making this fling legit. It is fun and flirty while it lasts, but you are likely to eventually go your separate ways.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
While you stand to learn something from one another, the ambitious Capricorn man is not a good match for the humanitarian Aquarius woman. You are incompatible in nearly every area, including core values, life goals, social style and bedside manner. However, this unlikely duo can make a great professional pairing, thanks to a shared competitive nature and unparalleled work ethic.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
As the official sign of friendship, when an Aquarian woman gets together with an Aquarius man the relationship is almost always doomed to fall within the friend zone. Any romantic relationship fizzles fast because emotional connections are not your forte and your sexual interest is passive at best. You are better off as friends or working together toward humanitarian goals.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Although Aquarius and a Pisces man compliment one another, this relationship is not one that comes easily and the latter is bound to wind up hurt. You share a fear of commitment and a devotion to humanitarianism, but have far different emotional climates. However, because you are so very different, the physical attraction is bound to stay strong, which means this relationship can last if you are willing to work at it.
