Some people with a lot of Aquarius in their chart (often, Mercury and Venus are in the same sign as your sun) can be unaware of how committed they are to their ideas about unconventionality. These people sometimes want their partners to be as unconventional. People with non-Aquarian natal influences may not want or need to be as “different” as Aquarians pride themselves on being. People born under the sign of the water bearer who struggle to get their ideas implemented may discover that the right partner can help implement some of an Aquarian’s big ideas.
Aquarius rules science and, therefore, (some forms of) truth. This is “scientific” truth, which is only one form (thus sayeth a person with a Pisces sun…) Aquarians may not always understand or respect forms of truth that cannot be tested in controlled double-blind study.
When Venus, the planet of love, is in Aquarius, the same characteristics apply: relationships will need to allow for lots of change & stimulation, will probably be unconventional (although exactly what that is today is anyone’s guess!), and may be more intellectually based than emotionally driven.
The sign of your natal moon will have a huge influence on how your Aquarian sun expresses itself in relationships. Regardless of the moon, however, an Aquarian’s challenge in a relationship is to allow your partner’s views to be heard, respected, and included.
Aquarius and the Love Calculator Toolkit
If you are someone with a lot of water bearer influence in your natal chart, you might find that using the Love Calculator Toolkit feeds both planetary rulers of Aquarius, which are Saturn and Uranus. Saturn loves the discipline and order that a well-considered list of criteria can give you. Uranus, planet of individuality and revolution leading to personal transformation, will not like the actual step-by-step approach of the toolkit as much. However, Uranus loves new possibilities and might consider the exercise as a sort of “love quiz for Aquarius.”
Love Quiz: Aquarius
Aquarius’ love traits are so unconventional that you’ll need to write your own test. Aquarians need a partner who can support them in their radical ideas, so develop criteria for open-mindedness. Your partner’s degree of open-mindedness doesn’t have to be exactly the same as yours, as much as it needs to be supportive of the way you think. Potential partners won’t be as full of ideas as you are. They do have to be people open to new thought, rather than people who believe “everything useful has already been invented.”
Think about someone with pragmatic implementation skills. You have big ideas. They understand project plans. This is a useful partnership.
Because you’re prone to being convinced of your rightness, look for someone emotionally aware enough to hold your feet to the fire when you’re simply rude, who can see past your intellectual surface to the heart that can sometimes be lonely but doesn’t know how to talk in “emotion.”
