Aquarius men and Scorpio women are both well known for their untameable natures but does this actually make them a great pair? Take heart in the fact that this pairing, although certainly difficult, is not entirely doomed from the start. It is possible for an Aquarius man and a Scorpio woman to have the blissful soulmate balance everyone dreams about, but caution is advised. The main struggle to compatibility is that the needs of Aquarius men and Scorpio women tend to clash in the areas they value most. For example, the water-bearer loathes restrictions and desires to flow as freely as a river to whatever and whoever interests him. On the other hand, Scorpio women are frequently possessive and demanding and can become unreasonably suspicious whenever her Aquarius lover makes friends. Conflicts of this nature become more and more frequent as these traits are often inherent in the personalities of those bearing the star signs. Still, if you are in an Aquarius and Scorpio relationship, you don’t need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Knowledge of your differences along with effective communication can go a long way towards keeping things flowing smoothly.

One of the primary barriers to success in this relationship match is that Aquarius men are not truly the emotional type. Far from the caveman-like images your mind summons up after reading that phrase, Aquarius men are actually charming intellectuals. They are the humanitarians of the zodiac, seeking to help as many people as possible but lacking the raw emotion so normally found in those who share the trait. Scorpio women are the opposite, emotionally driven and passionate people who are more physical, as opposed to mental. Additionally, Scorpios need to lead and they will take that position and cling to it with all their might. The water-bearers are neither leaders nor followers, preferring to create their own path in life and put their individualism on display.
Beyond the negatives, both signs are resourceful and are good at problem-solving, though Aquarius excels in the latter. Despite Scorpio’s love for physicality, they adore and need intellectuals in their lives, so Aquarius men fill the gap easily. Scorpio women and Aquarius men crave excitement and struggle to feel satisfied in a lifestyle that becomes too routine. This allows them to share some good hobbies and great conversations. Aquarius’ resistance to emotional investment is both a blessing and a curse with regards to Scorpio women. Even though true love may take some time, he is honest and once he fully commits she can expect it to be as true and as long lasting as her heart demands.
Love And Relationships
The bravery and loyalty of Scorpio make it quite easy to impress many friends, so it is not uncommon for Scorpios to be quite popular. The scorpion remains guarded, however, and it takes a very long time before she truly feels safe enough to trust friends and potential mates. Aquarius men are similar in the aspect that they know many people and seem to have an abundance of friends and yet few ever reach their inner circle of trust. Two guarded personalities, with Aquarius being the more unstable of the pair, can really make a devoted relationship feel out of reach. The water-bearer is known for being rather flaky and quick to withdraw love whenever he is bored, and Scorpio women are unforgiving when their trust is trampled on. Once again, it is these core conflicts that cause the most grief when attempting to forge a happy, healthy relationship.
As Aquarius men are disinterested in both leading or following, Scorpio women can focus less on being right and assertive and more on simply being happy. Jealousy is a major issue in any relationship with a Scorpio and, if it impacts her mate’s freedoms, things will go downhill fast. Even though Aquarius men offer themselves “as-is” and come off as uncompromising, honest communication can soften his perceived cold heart. Make no mistake, appropriate boundaries must be set in order for things to work out and if he is unwilling, the relationship may not be worth the time for either party. Loyalty and passion define Scorpio while equality and independence define Aquarius, but both sides could benefit from taking the values of the other party.
The good news is that both signs intensely value honesty and are unlikely to lead each other on even if the truth hurts. Sexually, they are moderately compatible and rarely have any issues in the area. The unrelenting passion and sex drive of a Scorpio woman acts as a safeguard against one of the many ways Aquarius men can become bored. He hates any manner of restraint and to see the scorpion at her wildest in intimate situations is profoundly arousing. As one of the most sexual signs of the zodiac, Scorpios know what they want and take it. To best avoid a problematic relationship, Scorpio women will need to tone down the stifling possessiveness, and Aquarius men need to realize commitment isn’t synonymous with signing away his freedom.
As born leaders Scorpio women excel in management or supervisory positions. They are intelligent, extremely resourceful and can quickly solve issues that would slow others down. When not in a leadership role, they can struggle as their stubbornness leads them to do things their way or not at all. The resulting criticism and punishment are quite rough on the emotional Scorpio. Aquarius men work best alone as their need for independence will almost always show in the workplace. On the plus side, as natural helpers, they can function well in groups too. Confrontation and laziness are not in their nature, but boring and uninspiring work can lead to some slacking off. While working as a team, there should be no major issues between the two signs unless the Scorpio woman is an oppressive boss.
A match made between an Aquarius man and Scorpio woman can be passionate at best and tempestuous at worst. Much to Aquarius’ displeasure, there are definite lines that need to be drawn to make things work out. For the scorpion, settling on controlling her wild emotions as opposed to her partner will pay off in the future. For those on the outside considering embracing a relationship of this nature, it may be difficult, but it is not impossible. Ensure that your expectations are communicated long before expecting any sort of significant commitment. As a final note, embrace the fact neither sign struggles with honesty, and after their monumental defensive walls are scaled, true love is often everlasting.
