Aquarius and Scorpio Compatibility

Aquarius Sign Scorpio Sign

Let's imagine a scenario: an outgoing, idealistic, and, of course, eccentric Aquarius meets an intense, serious, and, of course, mysterious Scorpio. And then, suddenly, they fall in love. The question is: will it be happily ever after? The answer to this question is complex — let's just say the Water Bearer tends to be wild and the Scorpio difficult to approach. As you can possibly imagine, combining the two doesn't exactly equate a peaceful walk in the park.

Chances are that if you're reading this article, you're a Water Bearer who has fallen for the enigmatic charms of the Eagle and are wondering about Aquarius and Scorpio compatibility and friendships. If so, read on.

Aquarius vs. Scorpio: The Signs

Aquarius is a Fixed Sign, which means you have great willpower but also tend to be stubborn. Although the symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer, this is an Air Sign, which means you are governed by intellect and thought as opposed to matters of the flesh or emotions.

Scorpio is also a Fixed Sign — let's just let that sink in for a minute. What do you get when you place two strong-willed and stubborn people in a relationship? Fire, passion, or perhaps a volcano? Ironically, although the symbol of Scorpio is the Eagle, this is a Water Sign, which means these people are governed by emotion and tend to be supersensitive souls.

Again, let that sink in for a minute. What do you get when you pair women and men who are guided by intellect with a person who is guided by emotion? Perhaps the relationship between air and water will provide an answer. Or, rather, the lack of a relationship, as air is oblivious to water and water to air. They neither complement nor destroy each other. Rain simply falls through the air, just as air simply floats around a stream. This astrological compatibilty certainly has its challenges.

Aquarius vs. Scorpio: Vibrational Pattern

Dear Aquarius, unfortunately, there is some more bad news. Aquarius and Scorpio form a 4-10, or a squared, vibrational pattern, which causes a noticeable tension, and even conflict, between people born under these squared signs. Mostly, Water Bearers and Eagles only associate with each other when circumstances beyond their control force them to, such as work or family relationships.

On a positive note, if other planets, especially the Moons and Ascendants, of the two star signs are in harmonious mutual aspect, the Water Bearer and Scorpio will mutually respect, and even be devoted to each other. However, the basic differences between these two personalities will always remain.

Aquarius and Scorpio in Bed

Love-making between the Water Bearer and the Eagle may range from a contest between clashing desires to a mellow kind of acceptance. As a Water Bearer, you tend to drift somewhere between enthusiastic engagement and a cool detachment during sex, whereas the Eagle needs to be intensely emotionally involved. This may lead the Eagle to feel slighted and undervalued, whereas the Eagle's intensity may leave the Water Bearer feeling tense.

Aquarius and Scorpio Love

On rare occasions, a Water Bearer and a Scorpio will truly fall in love and end in a marriage. When this happens, the tremendous amount of friction caused by the 4-10 vibrational pattern between these two signs can be transformed into positive energy. Although sustaining a relationship in a 4-10 vibration takes a lot of effort and self-sacrifice, the results of actually achieving harmony within such a relationship can truly be uplifting and intoxicating.

Although an Aquarius and Scorpio relationship may face many challenges and misunderstandings, it's possible to nurture a loving and positive union if both parties are willing to communicate and make sacrifices. On the plus side, an Aquarius and Scorpio love relationship will never be boring. And let's face it: neither the Water Bearer nor the Eagle likes to walk away from a challenge.
