There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Aries-and-Aquarius interaction is very positive. As the “I am” sign of the Zodiac, Aries is independent, face-paced, and likes to take risks. Aquarius is the “I revolutionize” sign of the Zodiac and is social, idealistic, and individualistic. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is certainly possible, thanks to the freedom-loving, but fixed energy of the air sign Aquarius.
Aries Parent/Aquarius Child
The Aries parent and Aquarius child will enjoy each other. Aquarius, as a type, is usually quirky or unique in some way, which will not bother an Aries parent. Thus, the Aquarius child will find this parent very comfortable and supportive of their difference in the world. The Aries parent appreciates and happily defends or protects the Aquarius child’s strangeness.
Aquarius Parent/Aries Child
The Aquarius parent and Aries child will have complimentary energy. Aquarius walks to the beat of its own drum and will enjoy having a child as forthright and independent as Aries. There will be rules with the Aquarius parent, like with any fixed sign, but they will probably be odd enough that the Aries child enjoys them or enjoys how different his or her household is from his or her peers.
Aries Friend/Aquarius Friend
Aries and Aquarius friendships are probably the best for both individuals. These two signs, more than any others, will want to be themselves, whatever that turns out to be, and these two signs are the most accepting of others being different. So, it makes perfect sense that these two signs would be fast friends, easily seeing their friendship last a lifetime.
Aries Lover/Aquarius Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be more problematic than any of the other relationship combinations, mainly because Aquarius is rather picky and controlling in its home environment. This energy can bleed into its sexuality, and specifically the sex, which can be too limiting for Aries freewheeling ideas about sex, love, and romance. However, this combination can work well if a friend with benefits interaction is laid out from the beginning.
Aries Employer/Aquarius Employee
The Aries employer and the Aquarius employee can work well, especially if the Aquarius is given the freedom to be creative and pursue cutting-edge work and opportunities. The Aquarius will always be looking for new ideas, technologies, and business practices. This combination can work out longer if the Aries puts the Aquarius in a role where doing something new and helping the company culture is primary to the Aquarian role.
Aquarius Employer/Aries Employee
If the employer is an Aquarius and the employee is Aries, this combination is also good. Aquarius likes to see a team thrive through the efforts of its individuals. Aries can bring a lot of energy to a workplace and does his or her best work independently. Aquarius leaders understand the need for each sign to do what it does best and behave how it prefers to behave. They will not put restrictions on the Aries, except to let them know when work needs to be completed.
Aries Co-worker/Aquarius Co-worker
This combination works well. If you want to get the most out of an Aries employee, team them up with an Aquarius. The Aquarius will not be threatening like a Capricorn or Cancer, nor will it be pushed around like Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces. Aries will not be reactive to the expectations Aquarius brings to the work situation, so they can be directed by the Aquarius, especially if they are seen as equals. The Aquarius will get to enjoy the gung-ho and get it done energy of Aries, which will make all work and projects get done ahead of time.
