Aquarius in Love
To Aquarius, love and marriage do not necessarily go hand in hand. You are the freedom fighter of the zodiac: your Aquarian antecedents were the Suffragettes, who chained themselves to railings, demanding the right to vote! And there’s something of the Suffragette in every Aquarian female. Regardless of your physical attributes, you could never be regarded as a ‘doll’, a pretty, empty-headed thing – you have a fine mind, strong opinions and a desire to do something worthwhile with your life. Thus, you attract a certain kind of man, and alienate others. Strong women are feared by a lot of men.
Friendship is a key component of your romantic relationships. Whether it is because you are a little frightened of losing your heart and being out of control, you tend to keep the men you are fiercely attracted to at arms’ length. In this way, you give very mixed signals: a man senses the attraction between you yet he is confused by your apparent indifference to him.
Part of the conundrum of being an Aquarian is that while you are an air sign, and therefore a creature of ideas and ideals, you are also Fixed, which means you can be resistant to change and somewhat set in your views and behaviours. Also, while you can hold a very liberal attitude to sex and sexuality, you tend to be faithful and possessive. A paradox indeed.
Like Ms. Capricorn, you need to trust your feelings a lot more, to allow yourself to express your needs and reveal your vulnerability. Staying in a relationship through a misguided sense of loyalty and fear of change is no route to happiness and fulfilment, nor is keeping your heart locked firmly behind an armour-plated wall. Then again, the men who fall in love with you, and remain locked in your aura for eternity, do so because you are such an enigma, she-who-cannot-be-possessed, their very own Greta Garbo.
