Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of its trouble, attempts what is above it’s strength, pleads no excuse for impossibility, for it thinks all things are lawful for itself and all things are possible.

    Aquarius Horoscope
    Win over the Aquarius

    Get Creative!

    Aquarians like surprises, so courting this sign means you’ll have to stay on your toes with new ideas; Aquarius doesn’t like it when life is too predictable.

    Shine a Spotlight

    Aquarians love attention and they crave recognition for their accomplishments. Soothe your sweetheart with the occasional praise for an always sunny demeanor, exceptional party-throwing skills, or having the best biceps you’ve ever seen, and watch them shine with pride.


    Aquarians are prone to inconsistency, the only thing you can count on an Aquarius to do is change his/her mind, and often. If you can handle the whiplash from Aquarius’ indecisiveness, he/she will appreciate you even more for your understanding.

    Shake Things Up

    Since Aquarius likes suprises and is prone to changing his/her mind often, it should be pretty obvious that the theme for this sign is “change.” Aquarians struggle when life goes stale, and they shine when presented with new challenges and fresh ideas. Brighten your honey’s day by suggesting to rearrange the furniture, or challenge yourselves to find a new favorite restaurant.

    Embrace the Crazy

    Okay, so maybe your Aquarian isn’t a total nut, but this sign is know for it’s eccentricity. Embrace the kookier quirks in Aquarius’ personality—you won’t be able to change them, anyway.

    Be Grateful

    If there’s one thing that really rubs Aquarius the wrong way, it’s being taken for granted. Make sure your sweetheart knows how much you appreciate him/her. Saying thank you, even for small things like running the dishwasher or making dinner. 

    Dial it Down

    While Aquarians love attention, they have great distaste for people who go to extremes to get it. Show-offs are turn-offs for Aquarius, so make sure you let your outstanding qualities speak for themselves.

    Step Up

    Aquarians are very knowledgable and intelligent people, but in constrast they’re often hesitant to make important decisions or give their opinions. Don’t be afraid to state your preference about what movie you want to see or what you want to do next weekend. If Aquarius doesn’t like it, he/she will let you know; you just have to take the first step.

    Just Let it Happen!

    Aquarians are great at making other people feel special. Let your Aquarius sweetheart spoil you once in a while without protesting about all the fuss. Making you feel good makes them feel good. Win win. 

    Play it Cool

    Aquarians are finicky when it comes to intimacy and big displays of emotion. Both are often too intense for this easy-going sign, and it can be frustrating for paramours who prefer to get serious quickly or need affirmation of their partner’s affections. If you can handle Aquarius’ cool approach to matters of the heart, your sweetheart will appreciate your patience.
