When Aquarius and Aquarius come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s best friends for life! These two mad scientists crave freedom and adventure, which can make it difficult to settle down. An Aquarius-Aquarius relationship is incredibly stimulating, since you both understand each others’ quirky and rebellious ways.
Aquarius and Aquarius: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
BFFs with benefits, but rarely more. If you two wanderers manage to bond romantically before heading off on your respective pilgrimages, you’ll make a fine dynamic duo. Popular, eccentric, and loved by many, your combined social circles could overtake a small village. Aquarius is the sign of the humanitarian, and you’ll need a common cause to glue you together. Emotions are foreign terrain for the cool-headed Water Bearer. Conversations about kids often lead to discussions about overpopulation and the human ego’s need to see its image reflected in a child. Oh, boy. Less talking, more doing…otherwise you could philosophize yourselves right out of your love affair. Marrying your best friend isn’t such a bad idea, is it? Discuss, consider, decide!
Where you clash:
Trying to get a reaction from each other may be like drawing blood from a stone. Inevitably, feelings will rise up in one of you…and that’s when things can get messy. As one Water Bearer sheds tears or rages with anger, the other shuts down. As you try to sort out what happens, chaos ensues, creating a complex dynamic that could send Dr. Phil to the psych ward. This match-up is often more successful later in life, once you’ve both read a library of self-help books, journeyed with Shamans, and taken enough family constellation workshops to understand the scientific pattern to your emotions.
Aquarius and Aquarius are both air signs
Let’s take a road trip! Ooh, yay! And then we’ll hop a standby flight or go skydiving. Yes yes yes! By the way, I just scored two Hamilton tickets—surprise! We’re going to New York!
Put two spontaneous air signs together, and you might just get an exciting, non-stop barrage of conversation and ideas. But do any of these grand schemes actually happen? That’s the challenge in a double air-sign duo—and a noble one you might both just rise to! Your social signs both crave novelty. You’ll be the first in line to try the buzzy new restaurant, see a trending new band or get the latest iPhone upgrade. In fact, you might be the pair camped outside the Apple store, entertaining the crowds with a magic show or a mobile coffee cart.
Trouble begins in an air-sign love match when there’s TOO much change. You may be constantly on the move and never really rooted. There can be flakiness, as you blow with the wind, or run as “hot and cold” as the air temperatures outside. You both easily get scattered, and your million friends, activities and separate interests could make it hard to find quality time. Air signs are communicative, but not always compassionate—your arguments can turn into brutal verbal dagger-flinging.
You both easily get scattered, and your million friends, activities and separate interests could make it hard to find quality time.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from the same astrological element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. As a same-element couple, make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with people of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, a grounded earth sign can ground you by adding more structure and tradition. A sensitive water sign can bring you out of your heads and into your hearts.
For best results, strike the right amount of change and stability. Our aunt and uncle, both air signs, were constantly renovating their home—and while it often added chaos, it seemed to keep them together. Their home was like a modern art gallery with constantly rotating exhibits—and the hot spot for massive parties, thrown “just because.” Entertaining is a huge connective factor for two air signs. Your combined social circle can rival the circumference of the earth! In fact, you’re at your best when enjoying the company of many different people. Air signs crave constant stimulation (and might even be the pair who pulls off an open relationship). Too many romantic nights-for-two can get boring, so don’t spend excessive time alone together, lapse into lazy homebody mode or rush into cohabitation.
Aquarius and Aquarius are both fixed signs
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? As fixed signs, you are guardians of your “turf.” You like to plant a flag and set up your base, building an empire from there. If the two of you share an agenda, you can be an indomitable duo. Hello, power couple! But if you’re fighting for different causes, things can get ugly fast. You’ll both dig in your heels and stubbornly defend your territory. When you turn on each other, it can be an endless war, with blame and judgment, defending your point of view just to protect your ego. Your best bet is to channel this urge into creating a shared legacy—running a business together, starting a family, hosting all the holidays. Since fixed signs have a traditional side, you might both enjoy having everyone gather at your stately home for summer barbecues or New Year’s Eve parties. Just be careful not to get SO set in your ways that you insist on doing the same things year in and year out. Fixed signs can be allergic to change, so as a duo, you’ll need to actively invite new experiences into your world to prevent from getting stagnant.
Aquarius and Aquarius are both yang, or masculine, signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yang signs: aggressive, action-oriented and driven. In this astrology love match, you can motivate each other…or you can find yourself in a power struggle. Two yang signs must be careful not to bulldoze or tread on each others’ turf. Sharing the power and taking turns having the upper hand will be the key to your happiness.
Aquarius and Aquarius are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool down to a platonic brother-sister vibe.
