Aquarius is one of the most independent signs in the zodiac. Although they’re highly social and value their friends, romantic relationships aren’t at the top of their priority list. In fact, they’re known for being a little aloof or emotionally detached in romantic situations. So what does that mean for two Aquarius signs who want to date? Aquarius and Aquarius’ compatibility shows why this double air sign pair make a surprisingly loving match.

“The Aquarius and Aquarius match is actually one of the rare same sun combinations that make a great match,” Michelle Welch and Ashlie Daniel, astrologers with SoulTopia, LLC, tell Bustle. “Aquarians in general feel like an outsider, they feel misunderstood. So, to have a partner with the same sun sign gives a sense of relief that they ‘get you.’”

The Water Bearer is known for being unique, and this can show through their sense of style or their opinions — because of this, these two will be fascinated by each other right away. According to Welch and Daniel, Aquarians tend to get bored quickly if they aren’t mentally stimulated. They’ll love being with someone who can hold a solid conversation and keep their attention.

“Aquarians will be in no hurry to commit and prefers to take things slowly,” they say. “This air sign is highly social and other sun signs may not understand the Aquarians' need to socialize. When they find a partner just as social as they are, this definitely checks a box off on their list for a “perfect partner.” Chances are they have a list of things an ideal partner would need to have before committing.”

Aquarius & Aquarius’ Sexual Compatibility

Sexually, these two make a highly compatible match. “They love to spice things up and are seen as the kinkiest zodiac sign,” Welch and Daniel say. “Imagine these two in the bedroom and the sparks flying, along with maybe some furniture. They love to experiment, so feeling understood will also allow these two to fully open up to one another.” They’re an open-minded pair and will never judge the other for wanting to try new sex toys, positions, kinks, or places.

For Aquarius zodiac signs, attraction starts with the mind. If someone isn’t intellectually stimulating, there’s a chance they won’t even consider getting physical with them. But that’s not a problem here. As Stina Garbis, professional astrologer and psychic, tells Bustle, they’ll explore their desires in “interesting ways” and won't ever compete in the bedroom. “Aquarius and Aquarius are a couple ruled by the powerful planet Uranus, and can be an intellectually stimulating duo, full of witty banter and mental pursuits, with a foundation of a deep friendship.” Being with another Aquarius will just feel different from any other sign.

Aquarius & Aquarius’ Emotional Compatibility

In a way, these two make a good match because neither will like getting too emotional. They’re logical problem solvers who’d rather talk things out, come up with a solution, and then move on.

At the same time, Garbis says they can seem uninterested yet are rather complicated. They’re not particularly affectionate or romantic and it might also take some time for them to recognize that what they’re feeling for the other is love. Aquarius tends to rationalize their feelings, which can make them come off as emotionally detached — a trait that can be off-putting to other zodiac signs.

In addition to this, Aquarius is independent. “They need to be careful to not crowd each other,” she says. “If one partner feels crowded, they may run. Their friends may not understand the matching of this pair, and may not agree with their choice of partner, but that doesn’t stop Aquarius from loving who they choose.”

Aquarius & Aquarius’ Communication

When it comes to communication, Aquarius and Aquarius may run into some problems due to their fixed nature. According to ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Desiree Roby Antila, astrologer and author of Sun Signs in Love, fixed signs don’t lead, don’t follow, and stay exactly where they are. They have their opinions and tend to stick to them and they’re know for being stubborn overall. Naturally, this can cause arguments that seemingly never end.

However, it’s not a hopeless cause. “If these two can focus their energy and communication into their naturally humanitarian ways, the inherent fixity in their personalities can help them achieve huge change in the world together,” Antila says.

Additionally, Aquarius don’t like holding grudges. They’re optimistic, freedom-loving air signs who’d rather focus on the present than be weighed down by negativity. Because of this, they’re likely to talk things out eventually, come up with a solution if needed, and move forward.

Aquarius & Aquarius’ Dating Compatibility

Aquarius is known for being quirky, which can make for a fun relationship. As Antila says, “The most wonderful thing about a pair of Aquarians is their element of surprise. You never know what to expect when two extraterrestrials join forces. They will constantly be surprising each other day after day.”

They’ll bond over causes they feel strongly about, current events, random facts they learned from an article they read, and their group of friends. Since they both value space in relationships, neither partner will get offended when the other needs time to themselves. No matter how different they may be, they’ll have an easy time understanding each other from the beginning.

Aquarius also have a very logical approach to love. They may overthink their feelings until they come to the conclusion that what they’re experiencing is actually love and while this may be frustrating to earth or water signs, two Aquarius just get it. They’ll learn a lot about love when in a relationship with each other.

Aquarius & Aquarius’ Friendship Compatibility

As far as friendship goes, Aquarius and Aquarius’ compatibility is high. When they first meet, they’ll feel like they found someone who they can connect with intellectually, which is very important for an air sign. They’ll learn a lot from each other, especially when they participate in friendly debates. Aquarius have so many wild ideas and will enjoy having someone who’s just as enthusiastic about those ideas as they are. They’re both fun-loving, social and will likely meet each other through their group of friends.

According to Antila, it’s also not uncommon for two Aquarius to start off as friends and then become something more. After all, Aquarius needs a strong foundation of friendship to even consider being in a relationship.

Potential Problems In An Aquarius-Aquarius Relationship

Aquarius is a fixed zodiac sign, which means they have a tendency to be stubborn. According to Welch and Daniel, their sign can sometimes be seen as “bratty.” If they have a strong opinion about something, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to change their mind. If they find themselves on opposing sides of an issue, this could lead to fights that never get solved. “If both stay mindful that an issue will pass, they can be a rock for each other during those moments,” they say.

It’s also important for them to set aside time to focus on their relationship. Aquarius do just fine single, so they go into relationships with that mindset. It’ll take some time to adjust to having a partner. Regular date nights or having a shared cause they support can help their relationship grow.

Are Aquarius & Aquarius A Good Match?

Overall, Aquarius and Aquarius make a solid zodiac match. In fact, Welch and Daniel say, it’s one of the most compatible among all the zodiac pairs. “This combination is a perfect example of what balancing the give and take looks like,” they say. As long as they make an effort to show up and nurture the relationship, this is a couple that has what it takes to last a lifetime.
