Aquarius might not be the conventional kind of lover, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have a lot of love in her heart for people.

In reality, it just means that she doesn't always show love the way many other zodiac signs do.

For example, whereas some zodiac signs might show love through physical interaction, Aquarius might opt for acts of service to show that she cares.

Aquarius is a horoscope that tends to choose thinking over feeling, which can explain why it's sometimes hard for her to express her emotions when she would much rather stick to the facts. 

Aquarius is rules by the planet Uranus, which is also known as the planet of originality. This means that Aquarius has her own brand of love, just like she likes to live by her own rules.

What might seem unusual for someone else is totally normal to Aquarius zodiac signs.

So, while it might not be your personal love language, if Aquarius offers to cook you dinner or help you clean out your closet, what she's really saying is that she loves you, and by being there for you when you need it, she's showing you that she cares.


Aquarius can also be what is considered the paradox of the zodiac. All at once she can be cold but friendly, charming but distant, detached and full of love.

With this zodiac sign, it's much better to embrace the person as a whole instead of picking apart the little things about her – I promise, you will get lost every single time trying to understand her.

As an air sign, Aquarius is known for keeping things playful and temporary – much like the wind. One second, she's there, the next she's gone. But don't worry; as long as you don't try to tie her down to one place, she'll be back.



Freedom and independence are very important to Aquarius, and she has some of the best relationships with people who respect her need to be her own person. When it comes to love, Aquarius has a lot to give, but she needs to give it on her own terms.

When she finds people she really cares about, they can be in her life for a very long time. How she shows love differs depending on what your zodiac sign is, but because she's so open-minded and willing to get to know everyone, she has room to love every zodiac sign in some way or another.

Here is how an Aquarius shows love to other zodiac signs, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


Both Aquarius and Aries are very honest when it comes to expressing what they want in a relationship. While they might have different ideas of what's most important in a partner, they respect each other enough to be honest with their needs.

Aquarius shows Aries love by being upfront about what would make them happiest in this relationship. Aries might want to get serious right away, while Aquarius might not want to label things at first, but having an open conversation shows Aries that Aquarius respects their differences.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

A partnership between an Aquarius and an Aquarius is one that lasts simply because no other zodiac sign knows Aquarius better than they know themselves. This is a relationship that is built on a strong foundation of freedom and trust – which is something Aquarius must have for a relationship to succeed.


Aquarius shows love for a fellow Aquarius by respecting their need for independence and individuality. However, while this zodiac sign does highly value being alone, they can also connect with each other through shared interests and values, communication, and intellectual conversation. This is a partnership that may seem weird but can definitely work under the right circumstances.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is someone who is looking for the perfect relationship – one that is full of romance and affection – while Aquarius is someone looking for things beyond emotion and being tied down to one person. This partnership may seem like it wouldn't work on the surface, but it does have the potential to work out.


Aquarius shows Pisces love by relating to each other. Pisces has a lot of dreams, as does Aquarius, and while both might have some trouble bringing these dreams into reality.

They are both very good at having deep, open conversations about what's most important to them. Knowing that there's someone out there to relate to them is highly important to Pisces.
