One thing to consider when checking the astrological compatibility between two people is their Venus signs. The sign the planet Venus was in on the day a person was born speaks to what they value in life. Both love and money matters are therefore affected by Venus.
If you have Venus in Aquarius, your best compatibility matches are partners who have Venus in Sagittarius or Venus in Aries. Looking at the characteristics of the sign of Aquarius reveals additional possibilities.
The tool below can look up the astrological charts for both you and a partner. It works best if you know the date, time, and city of birth for each person.
If you don’t know the time of birth or city of birth for one or both of the people, just put in 12:00 p.m. as the time and use the capital city of the state or country the person is from.
This will not get you a reliable Rising sign or Moon sign, but it will generally do a good enough job getting you the Venus sign, unless Venus is right on the border between two signs.

Remember that each Zodiac sign is associated with a season, a mode (is it in the beginning, middle, or end of a season?), and an element. Each Zodiac sign is also ruled by at least one planet or luminary.
- Aquarius Season: Winter
- Aquarius Mode: Fixed (middle sign in its season)
- Aquarius Element: Air
- Aquarius Rulers: Saturn and Uranus
Venus stays within two signs of the Sun in terms of relative position to Earth. That means people who have Venus in Aquarius can have the Sun in only the following signs: Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, or Aries.
Best Match: Venus in Aquarius with partner’s Venus in Sagittarius or Aries
Sagittarius and Aries are the fire signs closest to air sign Aquarius. The four elements – fire, earth, air, and water – typically break down into two groups of two: fire and air, and earth and water.
Older astrology texts often refer to fire and air signs as masculine and water and earth signs as feminine.
In today’s world where people of all genders are able to express a broader variety of roles and traits, perhaps a better way to understand the difference between the two groups of signs is to look at their focus.
Water and earth signs tend to be interested in security and in maintaining the structure that exists. This can include the domestic stay-at-home parent, but it can also include the sort of person who looks for a job that is stable and guaranteed.
No matter what happens in the world, industries like education, healthcare, food, and banking aren’t going anywhere. Those lines of work are therefore full of earth and water sign people of all genders.
Fire and air signs are interested in innovating and exploring. Even if they are found in stable industries, they find the wilder parts of those industries.
While an earth or water sign person might be happy with a financial job that involves managing conservative investments for retired people, a fire or air sign person might get curious about the riskier side of the financial industry like options trading.
Similarly, the fire or air sign worker in the healthcare industry might gravitate toward experimental therapies. As in the theory underlying Chinese medicine, there’s Yang within the Yin.
The theory of Yin and Yang, as described by the Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation, works well for understanding the difference between the fire and air signs and the earth and water signs. Yang is the outwardly focused energy of fire and air signs, and Yin is the inwardly focused energy of earth and water signs.
Venus in Aquarius and Venus in Sagittarius will give each other plenty of space. These two have in common that they are very independent. Venus in Sagittarius still has some concern for social propriety, but Venus in Aquarius really doesn’t.
Venus in Aquarius therefore might come up with a plan like a couple celebrating Christmas separately so they can each do it exactly how they want in terms of which relatives to visit.
No one other than Venus in Sagittarius would ever be capable of telling Venus in Aquarius when Venus in Aquarius has gone off the rails. Part of it is that Venus in Sagittarius can just be blunt without fully realizing it, but Venus in Aquarius also does understand that Venus in Sagittarius is a fellow lover of freedom and would not push back unless it were truly necessary.
Venus in Aquarius wouldn’t really go off the rails with Venus in Aries around, though, because Venus in Aries would be putting down brand new tracks to somewhere crazy faster than Venus in Aquarius could travel them.
Venus in Aquarius and Venus in Aries would have a lot of fun together, though everyone else around them might be terrified.
Venus in Aries has too short an attention span to come up with really big ideas independently, while Venus in Aquarius comes up with ideas so big that figuring out where to begin executing them would be hard for anyone other than Venus in Aries, who just starts doing stuff.
The twosome of Venus in Aries and Venus in Aquarius is therefore greater than the sum of its parts.
Second Best Match: Venus in Aquarius with partner’s Venus in air signs
The three air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. All three tend to like the idea of things and prioritize intellectual connection in their romance.
A Venus in Gemini person who sees the good in the little things may help calm down someone with Venus in Aquarius who is on a tear about the world not living up to some lofty ideal.
The Venus in Gemini person could validate that yes, ideas are important, and then be able to convince Venus in Aquarius that they are taking it way too far. Meanwhile, a partner with Venus in Aquarius could add some seriousness to the Venus in Gemini person.
Venus in Libra is a sweet and dreamy idealist, while Venus in Aquarius crosses the line from idealistic into dogmatic. Venus in Libra, however, is tired of dreaming alone, and likes to live vicariously through Venus in Aquarius’s success in pushing others to share their ideals.
Venus in Libra is getting the best of both worlds in this relationship – getting to be seen as the nice one and getting power they don’t feel capable of achieving on their own.
Venus in Aquarius would also get a pretty sweet deal having Venus in Libra as a sycophant. Venus in Aquarius, however, needs to be careful not to steamroll over Venus in Libra too much, as Venus in Libra is notorious for not speaking up when bothered and instead acting out resentment through passive aggression.
Two Venus in Aquarius people together would need to have very compatible ideals, or else it would be an epic clash. Maybe Venus in Aquarius needs a dose of their own medicine, though. Most people aren’t capable of putting up a fight against their force, so two Venus in Aquarius people together would finally find out how it feels to be on the receiving end of themselves.
Third Best Match: Venus in Aquarius with partner’s Venus in other fixed signs
All four of the fixed signs mark the middle of their seasons, when the weather of the season is at its most striking. For Northern Hemisphere seasons, Leo is the hottest part of the summer, and Aquarius is the coldest part of the winter. Taurus has the brightest spring flowers, and Scorpio has the brightest fall leaves.
Venus in Leo and Venus in Aquarius are capable of seeing and appreciating creativity in each other. However, Venus in Aquarius tends to be coolly intellectual and therefore repelled by Venus in Leo’s more dramatic moments.
Venus in Aquarius would also find Venus in Scorpio too dramatic, but both Venus in Aquarius and Venus in Scorpio are concerned with the bigger picture of the world and how they fit into it.
They both could go the route of conspiracy theorist or cult leader, though Venus in Scorpio’s cult would last longer because it would assume the worst rather than the best about human nature. Venus in Aquarius’s idealism, however, could be useful for getting Venus in Scorpio out of a dark rut.
Venus in Taurus would be a good match for Venus in Aquarius on the low drama front. However, Venus in Taurus values sensual experiences, and the hard part about sensual experiences for Venus in Aquarius is that they require physically inhabiting one’s body.
All The Rest
The signs that have not been covered yet are Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces. Cancer and Pisces are water signs, and Virgo and Capricorn are earth signs.
Capricorn and Pisces are the signs on either side of Aquarius. As noted previously, Venus can be no more than two signs apart from the Sun. There are therefore many Venus in Aquarius people with the Sun in Capricorn or Pisces.
There are also many people with Venus in Capricorn or Pisces who have the Sun in Aquarius. If at least one of these situations applies to a couple where one has Venus in Aquarius and the other has Venus in Capricorn or Pisces, incompatibility is not a huge concern.
Venus in Aquarius might actually share some of Venus in Capricorn’s interest in structure, but the difference is that Venus in Aquarius is more interested in their own personal spin on structure than in society’s traditions.
Venus in Aquarius is very intellectual and may have trouble meeting Venus in Cancer’s emotional needs. Venus in Pisces also has an emotional intensity Venus in Aquarius does not relate to, but Venus in Pisces takes Venus in Aquarius’s failure to keep up less personally than Venus in Cancer does.
Venus in Virgo won’t come down on Venus in Aquarius for being emotionally awkward because Venus in Virgo is emotionally awkward too.
Venus in Virgo, however, wants everything to be grounded in the physical world, and the physical world is often the last place Venus in Aquarius is.

I love my Asakuki Diffuser, I have this going in my living room or my office with either peppermint or lavender. The diffuser holds more water than other diffusers and lasts longer. It also has a timer so that it doesn’t run dry. The Diffuser adds a nice gentle scent to my home.
I’ll fill the diffuser with lavender or peppermint. With the thunder in the background and the smell of peppermint, it’s like being whisked away to a far away place!
