Can Aquarius and Scorpio make it?

Can Aquarius and Scorpio make it?

When it comes to astrology, I would always suggest that you should "stick with your own kind." By this, I mean date within your own element. All twelve signs of the zodiac belong to one of the four elements; fire, air, water, and earth. Aquarius belongs to the air element, with its element buddies being Libra and Gemini. Scorpio belongs to the water element, with its perfect matches being Cancer and Pisces. You will get along the best with people who are of the same element as you are. You are kindred spirits and have tons in common and lots to talk about. If you should venture outside of your element you should do so carefully.

Generally speaking, Aquarius and Scorpio do not make a good match. In terms of astrology, water and air are not compatible because they are just too different. Strangely enough, these two signs tend to have a strong attraction towards one another. I think opposites attract in this instance and the stars align just right. It can only go one of two ways though. When Aquarius and Scorpio get together, it's either going to be really good or really terrible, there is no middle ground. You're not going to have an okay relationship that's kind of boring but comfortable. Know this going in, you had better be all in because there's no easy way out.

The intense attraction that is felt between Scorpio and Aquarius usually leads to a great sex life which is one of the reasons your relationship can be successful. The Scorpio is famous for its insatiable sex drive so you had better put out or get out. Sex is very important to a Scorpio, it's one of the ways they express their love and devotion to their partner. If you're not on the same page here, it's going to cause problems in other areas of your relationship. At the same time, sex and attraction can't be the only thing you two agree on. Aquarius and Scorpio usually don't have a problem in this area because of their intense attraction to one another. It's in other areas that things seem to cool down.

A Scorpio is mysterious and alluring and that's all part of their charm and why Aquarius can become very attracted to them. It's just in the nature of a Scorpio to be intense and addicting. An Aquarius is an exact opposite with its free spirit nature and aloofness. This can be where heads tend to butt because a Scorpio expects a solid commitment and the Aquarius tends to run the other way when rules and restrictions are put upon them. The only way a real relationship can work between an Aquarius and a Scorpio is if the Aquarius loves and desires the Scorpio enough to break down its own walls and let them in. The Aquarius has to feel safe and comfortable enough in the relationship to accept the commitment for what it is and be open to it. In turn, the Scorpio has to understand that the only reason the Aquarius has walls up to begin with is that it's a defense mechanism. The Aquarius has been hurt before and it tries to prevent it from happening again by never getting too close.

The power dynamic between a Scorpio and Aquarius will always be that of a child and adult. The Scorpio will always take on the role of the adult because they are always going to be the one in charge and leading the way. The Aquarius is fine with this dynamic because they secretly enjoy having someone tell them what to do because it brings structure and order into their chaotic lives. Scorpios tend to be traditional and prefer to run a household by their own special rules. They like things done a certain way and if Aquarius respects them they will abide by their rules. Scorpio and Aquarius can get along pretty well once the power dynamics are sorted out and everyone knows what their roles in the relationship are.

A Scorpio expects an intense and strong relationship and will settle for nothing less. They will always keep tabs on you and will want you to keep in touch constantly. This can be a problem for the Aquarius who prefers their alone time and can go days without properly communicating. In this case, a compromise has to be made in order for the relationship between the Scorpio and Aquarius to work. The Aquarius should try to be a little more committed and the Scorpio should relax a little and understand that just because the Aquarius isn't texting back right away doesn't mean they're out doing things they shouldn't be. Some trust is definitely required from both partners.

Timing is very important if the Scorpio and Aquarius relationship are to work. Each sign has to get all of their dating around and one night stands out of their system before they can fully commit to one another. This is much easier for the Scorpio than the Aquarius because they tend to be players in their early years. Scorpio has always been more serious about relationships. If they can see a future with a certain person, they put in all their effort to make it work. Unless the Aquarius feels the same way, they could always have one foot out of the door which will infuriate the Scorpio to no ends. A little piece of advice: don't start a relationship with a Scorpio unless you can commit 100% to them and only them. You should never get into a relationship if you're not sure about them or just bored and passing the time. Scorpio will intuitively feel this and make your life a living hell. You have been warned.

This brings me to the most important fact you should know about the Scorpio: they are super loyal and loving people, but if you betray them then you might as well be dead to them. Scorpios are loyal and expect that loyalty in return from you. If you betray them in any way then you will know the notorious lethal sting of the Scorpio. In real life, if you get bit by a Scorpion bug, you die because their bite is deadly. If you have chosen to betray or hurt the Scorpio in any way, you no longer exist to them. Scorpio is not a forgiving person. They will remember your betrayal for as long as they live. They might say they forgive you, but rest assured they will never forget. It is near impossible to get into the good graces of a Scorpio if you betray them so it's best to always be on your best behavior.

Cheating qualifies as a betrayal in any relationship, but with a Scorpio, it's the ultimate betrayal that will never be forgiven. If you're in a relationship with a Scorpio and you're even thinking of cheating, just end it now and save yourself a lot of trouble. Scorpio will make your life a living hell if you cheat on them. You might have to change jobs and move towns just to escape their wrath. Just end the relationship in a very clean and orderly way and make a quick exit.


Overall, a relationship between a Scorpio and Aquarius can definitely work if both people are serious and committed to one another. The Scorpio can stand to be less demanding and all-consuming of their partner, while the Aquarius can buckle down a bit and get their life together so they don't come across as such a commitment-phobe. The Aquarius has to know going into a relationship with Scorpio, that they are going to have to give up some of their freedom. It'll be worth it though if their bond is strong and love is present. The Scorpio on the other hand must let go a little to be able to hold on to Aquarius for the long haul. When both partners are aware of the rules, there's no reason to expect anything less than success.
