Scorpio and Aquarius is often a hard match to make work. Amongst other things communication is likely to be a major issue. The low scores represent the initial low compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
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.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Scorpio man or Scorpio woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Aquarius man or Aquarius woman.
Aquarius is often very self confident and clever, though sometimes not very emotional. Initially it's likely you'll be attracted to this partner's fast mind and deep insights. There's often also a high level of physical attraction in this match, and it can make for an intense short term relationship.
You both can be somewhat rebellious and irresponsible when the urge takes you, and in many ways you're likely to bring this out in each other.
In the longer term however it's very likely you'll start to see this partner as too superficial or emotionally shallow, and far too independent. Meanwhile they'll find you obsessive and perhaps even a little scary.
This relationship will come down to a battle of intellectual analysis (your Aquarians) versus emotional needs (yours). You'll wonder why your partner can't just follow their heart, and they'll wonder why you can't just stick to the facts. Communication is potentially a serious problem here. You'll say 'red' and your partner will hear 'blue'.
When matters of the heart are raised it's likely your intensity will make your Aquarius pull away. You'll respond by becoming more emotional, and a vicious circle can result.
Compounding this, you both can be very stubborn, and it's likely that any fights will drag on for a fairly long time, with neither of you feeling the need to compromise or back down.
A particular danger is that your partner is very likely to have a very fast and clever mind, and given to saying some fairly blunt and spontaneous things during arguments, which you may have trouble forgetting or forgiving later. Again, a vicious circle is likely to result.
Overall you both have a fair amount of work to do to meet in the middle on these issues. If you both don't mind a little conflict this can make for an exciting and challenging relationship, it probably won't ever be labeled as 'harmonious' though.
As with all low scoring matches it can definitely work, as long as you both want it enough and don't rely on it "just happening" without any effort - your partner is more likely to assume this than you are.
Regarding day to day aspects of the relationship you're likely to find the main difference between you is that you like routines, whereas your Aquarius sometimes goes out of their way to avoid them, often preferring to tackle the same task in a slightly different way every time. This may puzzle you, though in the scheme of things it's a minor detail.
Likely to be the best part of this match at times, with very good chemistry and a mutual willingness to try new things. Make-up sex here is likely to be very intense and fairly addictive, and you may both decide it makes the other aspects of the relationship worth the price.
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 compatibility readings page.
There's often a high level of physical attraction in this match, and it can certainly make for a good short term relationship or one night stand. You both can be somewhat rebellious and irresponsible when the urge takes you, and in many ways you're likely to bring this out in each other.
In the longer term this relationship will come down to a battle of intellectual analysis (yours) versus emotional needs (your partners). You'll wonder why your Scorpio cant see the black and white facts in front of them, and they'll wonder why you can be so heartless. Communication is likely to be a serious problem. You'll say 'red' and your Scorpio will hear 'blue'.
Compounding this, you both can be very stubborn, and it's likely that any fights will drag on for a fairly long time, with neither of you feeling the need to compromise or back down. While your fast and clever mind is likely to have your Scorpio 'outgunned' in the short term, know that they have a major advantage in the long term, and fights are likely to turn into a war of attrition, which you're destined to lose!
Your Scorpio is a partner who is very possessive and controlling by your standards, neither of which you'll always enjoy. Similarly this is a partner who tends to be fairly obsessive and often jealous, and in general their emotional depth may confound or even scare you.
You like freedom and flexibility while your partner likes routines. You like to learn and judge facts, while this partner likes to follow their intuition and heart. Overall you both have a fair amount of work to do to meet in the middle on these issues.
If you both don't mind a little conflict this can make for an exciting and challenging relationship, it probably won't ever be labeled as 'harmonious' however. As with all low scoring matches it can definitely work, as long as you both want it enough and are prepared to take the time to understand and respect your partner's needs and viewpoint.
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, with a real astrology reading...
