Why Scorpio and Aquarius are Attracted to Each Other
Even if you're a rookie in astrology, you've probably heard some of the rumors about the compatibility between water signs and wind signs. A lot of astrologers will go on autopilot and tell you that the best partner for you will be someone with whom you share an elemental sign. (They'll also tell you to check your charts.) This is too simplistic.
Every combination of signs offer unique rewards and challenges to a relationship. For example, when a water sign and a wind sign connect, the results can be magnificent. This article will explore why Scorpios and Aquarius are such a powerful match.

On some alchemical level, all relationship combinations are like a spell. Combining Scorpio and Aquarius forms a healing configuration. The paragraphs below will explain the benefits and challenges of this type of relationship.
Why Are Scorpios and Aquarius Such a Powerful Match?
Aquarius is exactly what Scorpio wants, and has always wanted. The Aquarius will always be mysterious to the Scorpio. The Scorpio will be perpetually on the hunt, always learning something new about the Aquarius. Scorpio is a strongly masculine sign, and loves to go after something it doesn't fully understand. Unfortunately, the water sign gets bored easily. Sometimes a pleasant match is too surface level for Scorpio. This sign desires a great deal of complexity, paradoxes, and affection. Aquarius's complex nature is enough to lure Scorpio. Scorpio is like the pipe organ of emotions and thought. They have a strong voice and are capable of arranging complex thoughts.
Scorpios are extremely powerful signs, but often misunderstood. They'll trail to the side and go on their own independent journeys. People don't always know what exactly a Scorpio is, so it'll fade from view without ever being fully realized. Fortunately, an Aquarius is capable of understanding the Scorpio better than any other zodiac sign. A mature Aquarius will know a Scorpio immediately just by their intense stare. A Scorpio's stare is enough to cut through titanium. No other sign has this.
What Happens When Water Signs Combine With Air Signs?
All water signs are representative of a certain amount of healing and creative power. Aquarius is a brilliant thinker with excessive creativity and intuition. When Scorpio and Aquarius meet, they make for a cleansing, healing panacea (or, if they are not mature enough, a tempest). All combinations have their healing and destructive powers. Either way, this combination is strong.
Monogynous relationships between these two signs tend to be stronger. Polygamous combinations tend to be weaker because the power is often not balanced between them. Monogyny works for them because a Scorpio can fixate on an Aquarius and help it to be more powerful. The two need to spend a lot of time getting to know each other. They also need to focus their attention on each other. There is a lot of unraveling they'll need to do as neither sign tends to be as open as a Cancer or a Sagittarius.
Scorpio is a magician, and often feels that the challenges around him or her are too dry. That many of the things around them are dull to a great extent until an Aquarius steps into their world. Aquarius is a visionary and will never bore the Scorpio. In fact, the water sign helps the wind sign's vision a reality. Meanwhile, the Aquarius takes a dormant volcano (the Scorpio) and makes it explosive, exciting their inner passion. These two can bring out the potential within each other.
They need to understand that they don't communicate like normal couples, nor should they. They're not like normal individuals either. Scorpio needs an Aquarius to gladly accept its affections. Aquarius needs a Scorpio to chase it (Aquarius isn't a huge fan of chasing). If done well, it's an incredible and beautiful journey and an amazing pairing. Unfortunately, many couples with this combination will move too quickly, leading to self-destruction.
Neither of these signs do well with zodiacs that are too simple or too controlling. They have to line up with each other naturally, sharing equal intelligence and desire or else the whole structure will fall apart before it really has the chance to grow.
What Are Scorpio and Aquarius Drawn To?
A banging body
A charming personality
Good communication skills
Aquarius is loving and intelligent. These are gifts the Aquarius employs with a fair amount of introversion or introspection (perhaps both). Scorpio can't unravel an Aquarius like it can most other signs. It sees that the Aquarius has more pure motives, a different range for ethics, and a massive capacity for love. Scorpio enjoys Aquarius, but it brings up a lot of insecurities from deep within Scorpio. Can the Scorpio possibly win the heart of the person who wants to take care of everybody's hearts? How can the Scorpio, which can be the lowest of creatures, win such a big heart?
Why You Should Consider this Combination
Embrace the calm of an Aquarius. The ease it has with life will match well with a Scorpio and its ever changing ways. Like ice, the Scorpio is the most solid of the water signs. Still, being the master of water, it can seamlessly drift into its liquid and gaseous states. (Pisces will always be the light waters and Cancer will always be the deep, troubled waters.)
Scorpio can go anywhere there is emotion, and Aquarius can go anywhere where there is thought. When they are together the two feel more complete, more like they can share their personal stories. They're not exact mirrors, or even in the same states, but they can explore each other and come to understand each other quite well. Don't force this kind of relationship. If it's not meant to be, then it's not meant to be. But when intellect and emotion try to replicate each other and understand each other, beautiful and crazy things can happen. Albeit, if the two are not mature enough in who they are, it won't work so beautifully. Just remember to know and understand yourself before you expect anyone else to do the same.
Personality Traits of Scorpio and Aquarius
What Does It Mean to Be a Water-Bearer and a Phoenix?
Scorpio feels awkward having to face its insecurities in the light of someone who is so lovely. Aquarius often shirks relationships, sometimes delving into very independent phases and being void of sex. Aquarius can confuse people. They can be virginal, bisexual, pansexual, and sexually straightedge. No one really knows how to label an Aquarius, especially when they are so private. They have a sexuality that is massively deep and insightful, and there are Aquarian types who really are protective and intuitive about their sexual life. However, some Aquarians are extraordinarily exploitative. Aquarius doesn't feel a lot of chemistry with many signs on a sexual level. It may feel like having true chemistry with a partner is difficult to achieve. Their invasive thoughts can distract them from the amazing things in front of them.
The Scorpio is one of the few signs that can get inside an Aquarius's mind. They feel a certain chemistry with this sign that is absent in the other 11. Scorpio also finds something in Aquarius that others do not have. These two signs are like magnets and immediately connect well with each other. They want each other. This connection most-likely has something to do with how they mix as fixed signs. Their emotional palettes work well together, creating extraordinary exuberant colors. If these two meet too soon, it is a major hurdle to overcome. They won't have enough knowledge to understand each other. There is a certain amount of life fluency they need in order to bridge the gaps they'll have.
Scorpio is known for having a crazy amount of range to their emotions. They have three different morphological cycles: the snake, the scorpion, and the phoenix. The other signs will usually have only one totem. This sign is naturally complicated. Other signs just don't have enough power to study the world with the same intensity. If you're not paying enough attention, it's easy to lose sight of a Scorpio. They can change their mask so easily. They are malleable, quick-learners, and, most importantly, they can easily dissect someone else's personality.
What Scorpio and Aquarius Want in Bed
Scorpios have an endless sex drive.
Aquarius wants to get to know the partner through making love.
Expect a Scorpio to take any and all sexual encounters very, very seriously.
Fascinated by the choreography of making love.
You can't shock a Scorpio. Try many ideas out.
Wants to be taken on a journey.
Wants to have a deep, and almost telepathic mental connection with you.
Aquarius is primarily curious.
Your trust in him will turn him on because it means he has managed to connect with you on a mental level (which is essentially what he desires).
Aquarius is also interested in experimenting with new positions.
Inside the Minds of Scorpios and Aquarius
Scorpios have busy minds, easily distracted by the noise of life. However, once they've found their match, they love deeply and loyally. They are searching for the right person, and they do not settle. They believe deeply in a soulmate, they refuse to stay with someone who doesn't fully stimulate them. Although they can seem grounded when compared to Aquarius, Scorpios (regardless of whether they flat out say it or not) are looking for a supernatural connection as well.
Aquarius can come off aloof to them, but Aquarius is like Jean Gray from the X-Men. They are intuitive, quiet, and amazingly charming. Nevertheless, they can unleash the Phoenix within them. They have powerful emotions locked up inside them. Because their emotional capacity is like dynamite, they don't let those emotions out unless they find it completely necessary.
These powerful emotions are what tie them to the image of being water-bearers. Yes, they can skate above the water all day long with beautiful thoughts, but they are also the water itself. They are spring wells of emotion, with astute emotional control. If there were an Olympics for emotional control, Aquarians would receive every gold medal. They have a relationship with emotion and thought that is difficult for many to read, therefore, Aquarians are sometimes seen as misfits, odd, and different. Their high capacity for thought and emotion make them odd ducks, difficult to understand. However, they're usually so sweet that people accept them. This runs contrary to Scorpio, who has a tendency to be brooding, grumpy, and dark. If you're a Harry Potter fan, think of the Slytherins. They get a bad reputation in the books, but in actuality they are great and must take responsibility for that greatness.
Scorpio and Aquarius get along because they are both odd, highly creative, and secretly emotional. They need to take things slow. Taking things slow is the key to making this pair work. It's like a red velvet cake. Make sure to preheat the oven, follow all the steps, and make sure you have all the ingredients before you pop the pan into the oven. Otherwise, you'll end up with a gooey, inedible mess.
They can rush things by taking it physical. They need to create a great deal of space to build trust and communication. This will take awhile. Because this relationship takes patience, many will give up. First, this pair needs to understand how to talk to each other. This is going to take some time because they are so different and have to learn from each other. It's like a newborn learning how to talk, it'll take awhile, but will be very rewarding.
An Aquarius needs to revel itself slowly to Scorpio. The Scorpio must be patient. Aquarius needs to go on private dates, away from the hustle and bustle—all the stimulus can distract it from its date. Scorpio needs to go on private dates as well. It needs to have its date's full attention. Intimacy is what it truly desires. They want to know your personal secrets, you life story, and your ambitions. You can't force the conversation with these two. Having a truly revealing conversation may take two months of seeing each other (or even two years). It can take awhile before these two decided that they are, in fact, in a relationship.
Date Ideas for Scorpios and Aquarius
Scorpio and Aquarius
Aquarius and Scorpio need to go on private dates, away from the hustle and bustle. The two must be able to have good conversation and unravel each other slowly.
A smaller, less crowded pub
Remember, these two are attracted to each other because of the great conversation they can share in. Make sure that if you're going to a pub, you choose one that isn't too noisy or busy.
Stargazing or a planetarium
These two signs love intelligence and beauty. They want to share in each other's intellect.
Taking an Aquarius on a date to a botanical garden will make him feel calm and serene. Seeing the scientific names of the plants will allow him to gain knowledge on what you both love.
What Should Guide Their Relationship?
Focusing on strong communication should be what guides a relationship between a Scorpio and an Aquarius. Trust me when I say this, Scorpio and Aquarius don't need to worry about who they are physically. Scorpio by its very nature is sexual. It's a sensual sign, with a vivid imagination. This sign likes moving to this direction because sex is a strong glue for discovering another person. Aquarius's great imagination makes sex easy and enjoyable. They are aware of their great sexual imagination and that is why they don't share it with just anyone. They are not afraid to go without sex for awhile. Since they already understand their sexuality, it makes more sense for them to study other things.
On the other hand, Scorpio is the initiator of relationships. Aquarius builds its social structure like a never ending ocean with friends across all genders, cultures, and species. While Aquarius is a humanitarian and a social network goddess, Scorpio is instinctually interpersonal. Scorpio is a sign that is built for making a family. It's one of the few signs that really charms and awakens an Aquarius. Scorpio has strong staying power—it is loyal to the core (unless you show infidelity). An Aquarius needs someone who wants to stay, but struggles to find someone who is loyal. More often than not, they find more people who just want to date around. An Aquarius needs to feel special, it needs to feel wanted. Ultimately, it needs to feel like someone is consistent and will stay.
An immature Scorpio, will still have an exploratory phase before settling down. Scorpio is somewhat of an ass before it feels comfortable enough to give its loyalty. The more a Scorpio shows how loyal it is, the more the Aquarius will open its amazing emotional current. An Aquarius is powerfully objective, mysterious. For example, think of Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series. She may be a little "out there," but she's infinitely intriguing while also being calm. This is something a Scorpio will respect. A Scorpio likes both the calm Luna Lovegood side and the X-Men Phoenix side of an Aquarius. Meanwhile, the Aquarius loves the emotional-romantic side and the dutiful side of the Scorpio.
These two seem to have ESP for each other. This makes it hard for them to separate. They instantly recognize their psychic connection when they come across each other. This feeling is so desirable that they will latch onto each other with great intensity. Separating, especially for the Aquarius, means they'll have to go in completely different directions in order to get over the other person. The Aquarius will desire enough space to prevent them form getting back with the Scorpio. Deep down they know that they still love them.

Notes for Scorpios
Aquarius doesn't always talk. This can be baffling since it is a wind sign. Sometimes the Aquarius just wants things to be quiet and will leave a lot of space for you to decipher. Aquarius will need their privacy. If an Aquarius spends consistent time with you, this is a major plus. You may find that when you date an Aquarius you are the one making all the moves. Just remember how magical it is when an Aquarius accepts your moves. This is no easy task.
They'll slowly turn from gently holding your hand and letting you touch their hair to kissing you as they please, and for long bouts of time. This is a creature that sees far ahead into the future and loves to gather information effectively before making a decision. Don't let your insecurities drive them away, and make your insecurities clear and they'll do what they can to comfort you (that's their instinct). They want things to work and they want things to be smooth, and they don't want to hurt you. Still, you are a Scorpio, which means that you have the power to hurt them, so be careful. Scorpios know how to sting. Your power to dissect and ridicule can hurt an Aquarius extensively. They really want to trust you. If you sting an Aquarius, they'll block you out of their life, which is exactly what you don't want. So long as you don't sting them, they will accept you with open arms.
