Star Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Aries and Aquarius, are ruled by complementary elements, here Fire and Air, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship! What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.
In this case both Aries and Aquarius share the same independent, free-spirited and adventurous outlook on life – which makes for a lot of fun. A common characteristic of both Aries and Aquarius is their powerful desire for personal space in relationships. Certainly, these aren’t the kind of individuals who are likely to cramp each other’s style.
On the other hand, if either person is too set on doing their own thing to offer the other ongoing commitment, in the long-term there’s a risk they may gradually drift apart.
ARIES-AQUARIUS EMOTIONAL COMPATIBILITY
Emotionally, there’s a hot-cold contrast between Aries and Aquarius, which makes for only luke-warm emotional compatibility! While fiery Aries is intensely passionate and shows its feelings very spontaneously, an Aquarian’s emotional responses are characteristically much cooler and more detached. To the ardent Ram, at times it may even seem like Aquarius has no feelings at all!
The big emotional difference between these two signs is that whereas Air Sign Aquarius’s reactions are governed mainly by logic, Fire Sign Aries always shoots straight from the heart. The good news is that because Aquarius’s reasoning approach always eventually makes sense to Aries, it tends to have a calming effect on the hot-headed Ram.
ARIES-AQUARIUS SEXUAL COMPATIBILITY
Sexually, Aries and Aquarius have much in common, in that both are looking for thrills and excitement and both are turned on by experimentation.
Okay, so red-hot Aries can be a bit too full-on for take-it-or-leave-it Aquarius, while the Ram may complain that Aquarius is too cool and impersonal at times. But because Aries and Aquarius are natural sexual playmates, such differences are all part of the fun and games. In principle, Aries and Aquarius are a good love match and have a high level of sexual compatibility.
ARIES-AQUARIUS MENTAL COMPATIBILITY
Mentally, Aries and Aquarius have a great deal in common. Both are independent-minded individuals, who know how to think outside the box and come up with original approaches to problems. Certainly, neither have much interest in conventional ideas and beliefs or conforming to the status quo.
However, while the center point of Aries’s thoughts and conversation is mainly itself and its own projects, Aquarius wants to avoid discussing personal issues, preferring instead to talk about general matters of social or political interest. In Aquarius’s eyes, the Ram is too self-absorbed and too narrow in its focus, while Aries complains that Aquarius’s wide based intellectual interests are of no relevance to their own lives.
