Aquarius may be known as the “ice queen” of the zodiac, but as Disney taught us, love can thaw a frozen heart. As with every zodiac sign, Aquarius is plenty capable of being sweet and romantic, and heartbreak hits you just as hard, if not worse, than everyone else. You don't fall in love easily, so when you finally do, it can be extra painful when things don’t work out. Although no one can guarantee that you'll never be hurt again, astrology may be able to help you avoid dating someone who’s actually an incompatible match. According to astrologer Clarisse Monahan, there are three zodiac signs most likely to break Aquarius' heart.

"The Water Bearer is the most independent sign of the zodiac, however, they have no problem getting into relationships," astrologer Clarisse Monahan tells Bustle. "They just need ones that allow them the space and freedom to be their unique and original little selves. They take initiative in relationships and favor a more rational over emotional approach." Hence why Aquarius tends to have a reputation for being a cold and detached.

Aquarius, along with Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio, make up a group in astrology called fixed signs. On one hand, fixed signs are known for being reliable, loyal, and persistent. On the other, they can also be quite rigid, stubborn, opinionated, and single-minded. "When you put two fixed signs together, you may get two people who are unable to compromise or find it difficult to give into the other," Monahan says. It's one of the biggest reasons why she says Aquarius may want to avoid dating the following three zodiac signs.

Taurus (April 20 — May 20)

Taurus and Aquarius are two signs who have totally different approaches to love and relationships. The bull is conventional and prefers an old-school courtship, where things progress slowly and defining a relationship is important to them. Aquarius, on the other hand, lives by their own rules. Commitment and marriage aren’t very high on their priority list. They tend to focus more on maintaining a network of solid friendships more than finding a long-term partner.

Aquarius will appreciate how reliable their fellow fixed sign is, as a big pet peeve of theirs is flakiness. However, that’s about as far as their appreciation for the bull will go. According to Monahan, Taurus’ extreme stubbornness may eventually drive Aquarius mad, while Aquarius may be too unique for Taurus. As one of the most progressive and forward-thinking signs in the zodiac, Aquarius will feel hurt every time practical Taurus shuts down their ideas and opinions.

Leo (July 23 — August 22)

Leo and Aquarius are opposite signs in astrology, which means they’ll be naturally pulled towards each other in the beginning. They’re both pretty social signs, and will likely meet through mutual friends. Leo will be attracted to Aquarius’ fascinating mind, and Aquarius will see Leo as someone they can be friends with from the very start. Sexually, they make an excellent match. Leo will bring passion and romance into the bedroom, and Aquarius will introduce new things for them to try.

While these two signs can have a lot of fun together in the beginning, making a relationship work long-term might prove more difficult. Aquarius is associated with the 11th House in astrology, which is related to groups, friendships, and social issues. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which is associated with the ego. Although opposite signs tend to have amazing chemistry, at their core, these two are very different. Since they’re both fixed signs, Monahan says disagreements will be hard to reconcile.

“Neither sign will want to back down, yet it will be Aquarius who’s willing to be more flexible,” she says. “In turn, this can be a relationship where Leo has the upper hand.” As a fire sign, Leos tend to be driven by their desires. If they no longer feel passionate about Aquarius, there’s a good chance they’ll take off.

Scorpio (October 23 — November 21)

Scorpio and Aquarius are two highly intellectual signs who will find each other fascinating right away. The scorpion is known for being mysterious, while Aquarius is known for being cold. Both signs will be interested in discovering what the other is truly about. If all they wanted was a friendship, these two could take over the world together. However, making a romantic relationship work will be challenging.

In astrology, Scorpio makes a square to Aquarius, which can indicate tension, obstacles, and challenges in a relationship. “If these two get together, Scorpio, being quite a smoke and mirrors sign, can play games with honest and relatively straightforward Aquarius,” Monahan says. “Though Aquarius are definitely unique, they don’t play games. Scorpio thrives on power plays.”

Scorpios also need a deep emotional bond with their partner to feel fully satisfied in the relationship. As a more intellectual sign, Aquarius may not be able to give Scorpio the emotional intimacy they crave. When that happens, Scorpio may look elsewhere.
