Saturn’s planetary influence forces the Aquarius man to go through some growing pains and, during his childhood, he has had to face authoritarian parenting tactics, challenges, obstacles, rigid limitations, and undesired restrictions. The Aquarius man is taught life lessons as if learning by experience and rote memory – he will repeat the same lesson repeatedly until he finally has mastery over it. Ever hear of the “school of hard knocks?” The Aquarius man is a lifelong member, so keep this in mind when you interact with him. He has paid his dues, struggled through major challenges, and has risen above the fray.
The Aquarius man is the hero and champion of his own life. Such is the chief teaching of the planet of his influence (Saturn) – full mastery over his own reality. Thus, this planetary energy can help the Aquarius man develop confidence through successful achievements, whether the challenges he conquers are spiritual, emotional, physical, financial, or all the latter.
Trial and error is the name of the game when it comes to the Aquarius male and his learning techniques – which, on the surface seems like an undesirable way to learn. However, this really allows the Aquarius male to understand and retain what experience has taught him. Over time, he develops an intense degree of appreciation and gratitude for having gained so much wisdom and insight via these though life lessons.
The Aquarius man comes to understand that through suffering he learns and grows and he recognizes how life lessons shape who he is today. In a negative light, the continuous struggles the Aquarius man endures may leave him feeling less than confident about his life choices and what his future holds.
This Zodiac Sign may develop an issue with self-esteem, confidence, and may find himself continually comparing himself to others to gauge where he is at in his life and where he thinks he ought to be. The constant measuring of oneself against others might manifest in a continuous and ongoing effort to “keep up with the Joneses.” Excessive Saturn influence on the Aquarius Man might have him appearing almost tyrannical or overly overbearing.
Aquarius Man In Love & In Bed
(Venus in Aquarius)
Although seriously considered a wonderful friend and one who makes friendships with ease, when it comes to falling in love, it’s like the Aquarius Man is falling, no stumbling clumsily all over the place. Somewhat aloof and a bit on the awkward side, theAquarius Man is sometimes hard to get a sense of so it is not unlike a partner to question where his heart lies, or if he is being genuine when it comes to expressing himself. The Aquarius Man is not one prone to big, outward passionate displays of affection. They like their personal space even when in a relationship and when someone crosses the boundaries of space the Aquarius Man feels out of sorts.
There is irony here in that the Aquarius Man will often attract a woman who loves public displays of affection and who is almost grossly romantic. It’s as if they are drawn to those with qualities they do not have so they can achieve the perfect balance in a relationship. Thus, the Aquarius Man will have to adjust to the more affectionate partner and vice versa. To be truly compatible with the Aquarius Man, however, the partner not only has to be attractive and fun but also one that has an intellect that rivals his own. If you can’t stimulate his mind, you won’t win his heart.
Aquarius Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
If you’re in a relationship (or want to be) with an Aquarius man, you are getting yourself a brainy kind of guy! Of all the 12 signs of the zodiac, the Aquarius male is one that is all about forward thinking, innovation, progression, and intelligence. Sometimes your man might even seem like he is “all in his head or that he is lost in his own thoughts; Aquarian men are deep thinkers who enjoy manipulating formulas, theory and spend a lot of time absorbed in abstract thinking. When you think of an Aquarius think of the key phrase: “I know.” Geminis love searching for knowledge, but it is the Aquarian that understands knowledge is nothing without wise application.
Brace yourself: Even though the Aquarius sign corresponds to the element of air, which directly relates to your man’s amazing intellect and thought processes, he also corresponds with the water element. It is true; the water bearer is the symbol of Aquarius, and much like the element of water, your Aquarian man can be moving and deep. Likewise, there are moments where he might come across as an eccentric, or rebellious, radical, and unconventional.
Like water, the Aquarius man is highly adaptable, can go with the flow, and might sometimes seem too malleable to the point of instability. You will find the Aquarian man quite capable of conquering boundaries as if he has a knack for finding a way around obstacles. Being so connected to the elements of water and air, the Aquarius man proves sociable, friendly, and quite amiable, but there are times where he can also be moody, intense, and reflective.
Hearth & Home
Since your Aquarian man corresponds with the air element, this should be kept in mind when you consider his ideal living space. Lots of open spaces, big rooms, tall ceilings, large windows, and many rooms … the more rooms the better … this is the best habitat for the Aquarius male, and he will have no trouble making a spacious home his sacred space. Now, because the Aquarius man enjoys both the classic and modern styles of furnishings, do not be surprised if the inside of the house looks like an estate sale gone mad, with some vintage items, some contemporary pieces, and some décor representing futuristic styles. Bear in mind that there will not be an excessive amount of furnishing as this would deduct from the airiness of the location and the Aquarius man’s need to feel free in the open spaces.
The home will have a few art pieces here or there, with some unusual adornments and you will soon see that the eccentric Aquarius as an eye for the unusual. One thing your man will be clear about is the type of furnishings and décor he likes, and in this regard he will prove a bit less flexible in terms of changing his mind.
While usually open-minded, when it comes to his “temple” he becomes a bit more rigid in his thinking. For example, being a forward and progressive thinker, you can come to expect the Aquarius male to want all the latest gadgets and doodads for the kitchen area. Only the best appliances and the latest technological wonders will do! Opt for stainless steel appliances when buying for an Aquarius male, as silver is a preferred color for your man.
Health & Well-Being
The sign of Aquarius rules over the circulatory processes, calves, ankles, and the legs. Since this sign rules circulatory processes, issues with the blood may arise, and it will be important for the Aquarius man to monitor blood glucose, iron, and magnesium levels. A diet that serves to provide the male with “brain food” and foods exceptional for circulatory stimulation are recommended.
Spicy foods like cayenne peppers and chili are great for the blood and barley, oats, wheat grass, and fish are fantastic brain foods.
Breath regulation and exercise like biking, walking, running, or even participation in the martial arts can help circulatory processes remain at their best while serving to tone the body and clearing the mind.
If the Aquarius man becomes ill, the best method of recuperation involves a change of the environment or scenery and a period of time where he relaxes the mind. With Rulership over the blood, the Aquarian is likely to experience some health issues related to circulation and should therefore take preventative measures and make healthy steps to thwart the onset of cardiovascular conditions, cardiac edema, arteriosclerosis, and issues related to venous insufficiency including impure blood, varicose veins formation, edema of the legs, and poor oxygenation.
Career and Finance
Imagine an image of the water bearer carrying around a sizeable vessel; in this vessel one will find what seems like a boundless amount of energy. The energy an Aquarius man has is put to good use when pursuing financial endeavors. You will find that your intelligent and handsome Aquarius man is also one that has a huge heart: One he would use to embrace the entire world if he could. At the same time, he would have no expectations to gain anything in the way of favors. In his heart, he wants to be the proverbial knight on the white horse for everyone and anyone … a hero striding in to save the day at the last-minute and this desire shows up in the humanitarian issues in which he becomes thoroughly engaged. A visionary, innovator, and one with a mind always set on the future, it is not unlike the Aquarius male to pursue lofty and intensely meaningful causes, so when it comes to finance, the reason it is most important is that it proves to be a means to an end, and he will spend it on humanitarian pursuits.
Aquarian men are typically practical when it comes to financial control: They do not spend a lot and they make fair attempts at saving. It is true, however, if the Aquarius male struggles with financial control and does not get a handle on money early on, he may struggle later in life when he finds himself ill-prepared for a sudden illness or for retirement. In terms of careers, the Aquarian has his choice of excellent occupational pursuits. Careers to which the Aquarius male is well suited, particularly because of his interest to help others and because of his innovative and inventive nature, are many. Some ideal jobs in the position of scientist, psychologist, physicist, humanitarian, electrical engineer, chiropractor, congressional representative, photography, teacher, faith healer, and astrologer, among others. An Aquarius male might even be an incredible inventor.
How to Attract an Aquarius Man
Aquarian men have a penchant for genuine people so demonstrating your authenticity and sincerity is the first step in winning his heart. Do not pretend to be something you are not because the clever and wise Aquarian will be able to see right through the mask you are wearing. Let him see you and appreciate you as you are. At the same time, do not give all of yourself away at the first few meetings … a bit of the mysterious is called for here as this will surely hook his natural curiosity for learning more about you. Being genuine does not mean you must reveal all, and in fact, if you can prove you are a very private person, this too will prove a draw for him.
Do not waste time making your feelings known. When you get an opportunity to express yourself, then grab it, but do so privately. The Aquarian is not too fond of public displays. Mind your personal boundaries when you interact with him because is not at all showy with affection and you do not him to feel awkward. Be prepared to be an intellectual match for him, and be open minded about dating and things to do together: This will cater to his need for new experiences and his desire to engage in hefty, intellectual conversations.
Dating an Aquarius Man
With Aquarius’ open mind, there are so many things you will find he enjoys. Keep in mind the Aquarian’s desire to learn new things and his curiosity as well; you will find he will openly embrace new ideas and experiences. Your Aquarian male will enjoy literature, the arts, music, and travel. He tends to enjoy spending time with like-minded individuals, but also enjoys his downtime just as much. He is a hefty reader who appreciates a wide choice of genres, and more than likely one who likes science fiction and futuristic tales. The Aquarian male is one who appreciates surprises, likes intimate get-together’s as much as larger gatherings where he can socialize, but most of all he appreciates privacy.
With his open mind and heart, it is not hard to see how the Aquarian male would find rude, egotistical, or nasty people a real turn off. Aquarians do not care for those who are disingenuine, braggarts, pushy, wasteful, rude, or close-minded. Your man is also not too fond of public scenes, being limited or restricted in any way, or especially having his right to choose restricted. Following someone else’s demands, especially if he is made to feel inferior and the demands are unreasonable, is something the Aquarian male detests.
Best Match for the Aquarius Man
Friends and Family
The Aquarius Man takes his time getting to relationships, so once he settles down, he has a tendency toward long-term fidelity. In the role of father, he shows commitment to his children and tends to pass on his insights, and his children will enjoy his equally curious nature. To that end, the Aquarian father teaches his children to explore. Ensuring the children have an excellent education is a first and intense priority for the Aquarian as he wants to encourage a love for life-long learning. With that he will also pass on lessons in how to be caring for others and will teach the children the importance of humanitarian work. In all, the Aquarian father is sensible, calm, patient, and guiding. He will encourage independence, but will do so with firm guidance and counsel.
As a child, the Aquarius Man is likely to be quite social and incredibly curious. The curiosity of the Aquarian might end up getting him into a bit of trouble from time to time, although a harmless curiosity, it is one that is boundless and without limits. As social a naturally social, amiable, and curious child, the Aquarian has little trouble making friends. He is loyal and likable among his peers. However, you will also find that he enjoys his alone time as he spends time delving deep into abstract thoughts and ideas. The Aquarius Man as a sibling is easy to get along with, primarily because of his open mind, open heart, and naturally humanitarian nature. Sibling rivalry, if arising at all, is not long lasting.
In romance, the best matches for an Aquarius man are Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius. Aries and Aquarius are attracted on both a physical and intellectual level. The conversations between these two are heady and can go on forever, serving as serious stimuli for later intimacy. Aries is all about action and forging forward and the Aquarius Man matches this energy with his curiosity and forward thinking. The Gemini and Aquarian share the desire for knowledge and learning that will keep them forever attracted: These two could probably talk their way through an orgasm if left to talking long enough! Libra and Aquarius both have a sense of fairness and a humanitarian nature that proves a draw to one another, and Sagittarius, while having preferences that might not always align with the preferences of Aquarius, still proves stimulating in conversation, engaging, and attractive to the Aquarius Man.
The Aquarius Man is least compatible with those ruled by the sun sign Scorpio and Taurus. Some say opposites attract and if you believe that then you will believe there is a way for a relationship between a Scorpio and an Aquarian to work. However, Scorpios are a bit more emotionally reactive than the Aquarius and the relationship itself is prone to waves of unpredictability. The same goes with a matchup of the Taurus and Aquarian mind; both personalities approach life with very different attitudes, with Taurus being more relaxed and subdued with the Aquarius being active, curious and one that forges forward when able. The two extremes once again make this kind of relationship unpredictable.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts
Anything that stimulates his thinking makes for a great gift. The latest bestselling books or maybe some classics will prove ideal since he is likely to be a fairly hefty reader. An eBook reader or tablet might also be suitable when you are a bit further into the relationship. The gift should be practical and not overly extravagant. Innovative, novel and unusual gifts are also appealing to the forever forward thinking Aquarian. Gifts with a practical element will not go unappreciated.
Facts, Mythology, & Metaphysics
The sun sign of Aquarius corresponds to Greek and Roman myth telling the story of a Phrygian youth named Ganymede. The story tells how Ganymede, the son of the king of Troy or Tros, was on Mount Ida where he tended to his father’s flocks. It was on Mount Ida the god Jupiter spots him and is very taken with the young boy. Turning into a large bird of prey, Jupiter flies to Mount Ida and steals away with Ganymede, who later became known as the gods’ cupbearer (water bearer).
The tarot card associated with Aquarius is The Star which depicts a water-bearer on the card and a constellation of stars in the sky (thereby suggestive of the story of Ganymede who was taken away by Jupiter into the skies). The number of The Star card is XVII. Thus, in numerology, this breaks down from 17 to the number 8. The number 8 is associated with the infinite, eternal, and birth, life, death, and rebirth cycle of life. The sign of Aquarius is associated with the heart chakra as well, which aligns with the humanitarian nature of the Aquarius Man.
