When an Aquarius ignores you, it's hard to know what to do to bring healing into the relationship once again.

You don't want to come across as overbearing or insensitive.

But, when an Aquarius suddenly ghosts you, leaves your text messages on read or refuses to answer calls or talk about what's wrong, it's tough.

Being ignored is never easy, and when an Aquarius zodiac sign is the person who has left you out in the cold, even harder.


So, what to do when an Aquarius ignores you?

Born between January 21 - February 18, Aquarians are unique and unconventional.

Their air element certainly attributes to their free-spirited nature and flightiness.

Although Aquarius is sociable and intellectual, they may deal with conflict with a cold shoulder.

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, so their behavior can appear erratic at times.

This is what makes the zodiac sign so unpredictable.

Uranus makes Aquarius want to travel all over the world while also being calculated and introspective.

With so many thoughts on their mind, Aquarians are innately aloof people.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell if Aquarius is blatantly ignoring you or simply distracted with other pursuits.

Whichever the case may be, Aquarius usually isn’t gone for good even if they are absent for now.

Here are some tips on how to deal with Aquarius when they ignore you, per astrology.

1. Give them space.

Aquarius’ air element keeps them constantly active and constantly changing direction.

If Aquarius is ignoring you, they are probably filling their time with other focuses.


This does not mean that you are not a priority to them, but other things and people are important in their lives as well.

If Aquarius is taking space from you, they probably need to.

Perhaps they need time to cool down after an argument or need to recharge their energy by utilizing it elsewhere.

Invading this space will irritate Aquarius.

If they set a boundary, even implicitly, it is best to respect it.

2. Be open to listening.

Remind them that you’re here when they’re ready.

The difficulty surrounding Aquarius is their need for space.

Their distracted attention is that it may feel like they’ll forget about you and leave you on the outskirts of their life forever.


To combat this, without combatting the Aquarius themself, is with gentle check-ins.

Do not pressure them to speak with you, but a gentle reminder that you are there for them when they are ready to come back can do a lot of good.

Aquarius’ attention will be brought back to you and whatever situation pushed you two apart in the first place.

They will still get to decide on their own terms when they are ready to speak to you again so they won’t feel attacked.

3. Initiate the conversation.

If you try the first two methods and still feel alienated from the Aquarius, it could be time to open the conversation yourself.

Be sure you don’t come in too hot, or they will only be pushed further away and it will be much more difficult to reconcile.


Use “I” statements so that Aquarius doesn’t feel accused of anything.

They will be much more receptive to hear how you feel.

Start the conversation by expressing how much you miss them.

Say how you just want the conflict resolved for the sake of peace between you two.

That way it will feel more like a discussion than a fight.

An intellectual Aquarius will be much more willing to participate than cut their losses.

4. Try to connect.

Invite them back in with one of their interests.

If the conflict is too intense for Aquarius, they will ignore you.

But to get them to want to deal with your relationship problems, connect in a different way.


Ask for their help in a project of their interest.

Ask them to join you in an activity that they enjoy.

Trying to connect when an Aquarius ignores you will ease them back to you because it is something they like to do.

The free-spirited Aquarius only does things when they have some sort of motivation to do so.

They never do things just for the hell of it.


Appealing to their interests will make them more motivated to have you in their life again.

Once that ice is broken, the issue can be revisited in a more open manner.

5. Be gracious.

Remember that this is a part of their personality.

Aquarians are aloof by nature.

They may not even realize that they are ignoring you.

Sometimes a gentle nudge is all it takes to get their attention back.

Don’t make mountains out of molehills, or Aquarius may think they should have been ignoring you.

Remember the first tip to give them space because that space can also be for you.

Take that time to reflect upon whether this behavior is directed at you, or if Aquarius is just being their flighty self.


The issue may be resolved sooner than you think if you simply accept Aquarius for who they are, quirks and all.
