Aquarius and Aquarius is a match almost guaranteed to be best friends, but it doesn't always work as well as lovers.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
The danger in this match is that you're both very intellectual and progressive people. You'll mesh so well mentally that you'll almost certainly be best friends, and that can sometimes make for an un-sexy equation.
The problem here is that you both tend to be fairly emotionally aloof and impersonal in relationships, and benefit from a slightly more emotionally needy or inspiring partner to bring out your loving and nurturing side.
You're both outgoing and relatively stable people, and are likely to enjoy hi tech gadgets and news. You're both free spirits, intelligent, objective and analytical. You both value your independence.
This match together sometimes equals a lack of emotional depth, which is so often the glue which holds a couple together. Logically there's no good reason for that, so you may not accept it immediately, but this is a match which has a much higher chance than average of one of you eventually deciding you just want to be friends, with or without benefits. If you're both very independent then this can actually work well for some couples.
There will be great chemistry initially, you both enjoy intellectual stimulation and aren't afraid to experiment. Again in the long term, there's a danger of the friendship/intellectual dynamic spoiling the lover dynamic.
The best way to combat this is to open up to each other, and nurture your romantic and emotional bond whenever possible.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you. If you would like more information on this for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
