Aquarians. They’re iconoclasts, humanitarians, freedom-fighters, and one of the best partners you can imagine.
Wait, really? Aren’t Aquarians aloof, cerebral lone wolves who are more interested in friendship than love? Don’t they spend a little too much time watching conspiracy videos on YouTube and rebelling against The Man to be good partners? Aren’t they, um, aliens?
Well, kind of. Turns out that, however strange they are, they’re actually real people (it had to have been an Aquarius who came up with that. They love being compared to aliens as much as Leos love being compared to royalty, which is to say, A LOT). Aquarius can certainly appear to live entirely in their heads, and they definitely spend a lot of time chasing their passions and fighting for what they believe is right.
But is that such a bad thing? It’s true that Aquarius is the sign of friendship, but how many of us say we want to marry our best friend? Aquarius may be cerebral, but how beautiful is a true meeting of the minds? How valuable is a partner whose deep sense of morality guides them through life?
Remember, Aquarius is FIXED. They are loyal to the core. And, unlike many signs, their loyalty isn’t driven by their emotions, which we all know can be fleeting, but rather by their convictions. Being loyal isn’t only what they want to do, it’s what is right. That is something you can count on.
And as stable as they are, they will never be boring. They are always learning and expanding their world, and they’ll expand yours right along with it. But at the same time, they’ll never expect you to agree with them about everything. Instead, they encourage your individuality and independent thinking as much as they prize their own. Aquarius simply doesn’t do control, especially mind control. In fact, Aquarius doesn’t even believe in control. Most Aquarians value critical thinking and innovation far too much to try to hold anyone back. So while you may have to listen to them explain how the moon landing actually took place on a sound stage in Arizona, they’ll be delighted to listen to you explain your pet theory that bees hives are collapsing because they’re being replaced with surveillance drones. Aquarius is the antithesis of the status quo.
Which doesn’t mean they can’t have deep, loving relationships. Sure, they will find a way to rebel, but they’re more than happy to rebel together. An Aquarius I once dated was thrilled by the way that our relationship subverted gender norms, with me being the higher-earning partner who made many of the relationship decisions while he took on most of the emotional labor. He would talk about taking my name if we ever married, and the whole room could feel his glee. While yours may not rebel in the same way, the pattern remains. Find a way to stick it to The Man together, and you’ll have a partner for life.
And while it’s true that Aquarius is all about freedom and space, it’s not the same as Sagittarius’ freedom urge. Sadge needs space to roam. Aquarius needs space to be an individual. They need to feel free in their minds. As long as they have the room to be exactly who they are, they’d far rather do their exploration mentally while cuddled with you than out on safari.
Yes, Aquarians are weirdos, iconoclasts, and idealistic non-conformists. But they’re also loyal, interesting, and true lovers of humanity. If you want a partner to make you look good at the company Christmas party, Libra or Capricorn is a great fit. But if you want a partner who will be just as fascinated by you as you are by them, and who will spend the rest of their days changing the world with you, Aquarius is the one.
