In my role as a life coach, I am often helping clients better understand themselves and those closest to them. 

That’s why I’m excited to share this Scorpio and Aquarius friendship compatibility guide with you. 

So, let’s dive in. 

Scorpio And Aquarius Friendship Compatibility

Scorpio is a water sign and Aquarius is an air sign. These two zodiac signs don’t get along naturally. It will take a bit of an effort to make this friendship work. Water signs are very rigid in their priorities, whereas air signs prefer to ‘go with the flow’. 

However, the Scorpio and Aquarius compatibility is such that these two can become best friends if they can move past their differences.

It’s worth mentioning that both being fixed signs aids Scorpio and Aquarius friendship compatibility.

Why A Scorpio and Aquarius Friendship Thrives

These zodiac signs have a lot of key personality traits in common. Both are ambitious and passionate. Both care about making a difference to their community. Both are very loyal to their good friends. For this reason, Aquarius and Scorpio have a lot of mutual respect and are good at empathizing with each other.

These two can make a highly emotional pairing. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the celestial body known for its intensity and volatility. Meanwhile, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which is regarded as the most unconventional planet in the world of astrology.

Why A Scorpio And Aquarius Friendship Fails 

It’s the overload of passion and emotion that can be the downfall of a Scorpio and Aquarius friendship.

When these two have a disagreement, the conflict could overheat and quickly become irreparable.

A disagreement often flares up because Scorpios can become very possessive of their friends. This can lead to jealous tendencies, when a good friend doesn’t show as much loyalty as they do. It’s not uncommon for Scorpios to hold grudges for long periods of time.   

The problem is the free-spirited Aquarius is naturally somewhat flighty in their friendships. The water-bearer sign values freedom and makes their own rules in life. An Aquarius is happy to  embrace its quirky ways. That’s the most charming thing about them, but it takes a lot for them to want to be tied down to one person as a lover or a friend.

How To Make A Scorpio And Aquarius Friendship Work?

Aquarius and Scorpio will learn to admire a lot of things about each other’s personalities once they get to know each other.

A Scorpio often appreciates the quirky ways of their Aquarius friend which stem from its Uranus influence. Meanwhile, the passion and loyalty of the Scorpio zodiac sign makes Aquarius want to invest in the friendship.

However, in order to become great friends, they must learn to understand each other’s differences. If a Scorpio is too intense in chasing a relationship with an Aquarius man or woman, it’s likely they’ll be scared away. 

If an Aquarius misjudges the intense emotions of the Scorpio – born from its association with Pluto – they’re in danger of losing a great life companion.  

Once they move past these potential initial misunderstandings, these two zodiac signs can begin to enjoy their shared interests and similar outlooks on life.

At this point, the Scorpio and Aquarius friendship compatibility skyrockets, as both zodiac signs are extremely loyal, honest and supportive with those closest to them.   

Scorpio And Aquarius Compatibility Percentage

According to, the Scorpio and Aquarius friendship compatibility percentage is only 30%.

They rate as: 

  • 60% for shared activities;
  • 50% for communication
  • 40% for intimacy compatibility.
  • 30% for values;
  • 1% for emotions;
  • 1% for trust.

This website appears to focus mostly on the conflict that can occur in the initial stages of a friendship between Scorpios and Aquarians, where the Scorpio is prone to let their feelings get the better of them and scare the Aquarius away. 

This can ruin the trust between an Aquarius and their Scorpio friend. In fact, Scorpios are prone to scaring off all the air signs with their intense nature. 

However, there are many cases where the Aquarius/Scorpio compatibility is much stronger than these scores may suggest.

Scorpio And Aquarius Relationship

When the Aquarius/Scorpio relationship works, these two signs will fall hard for each other. The natural passion that comes from the Aquarius and Scorpio zodiac signs means these two can find love very quickly in a romantic relationship.

Once again though, the intense nature of the Scorpio zodiac sign can cause conflict with the free spirit of Aquarius.

It’s common that a Scorpio man pursues an Aquarius woman with too much intensity, scaring her away. In a similar vein, a Scorpio woman can come across as too clingy in her attempts to make an Aquarius male commit to her.

In both cases, these two signs will need patience and understanding to build a loving and committed relationship. 

If they can, they may find that they’re the perfect match. Those born under the Aquarius zodiac sign can teach Scorpio to be less rigid and more spontaneous. Meanwhile, a relationship with a Scorpio can provide a strong foundation for an Aquarius to reach their full potential in life. Indeed, a Scorpio can teach Aquarius how to channel their passion more effectively.

Aquarius And Scorpio Compatibility Marriage

Do Aquarius and Scorpio have the love compatibility to make a successful marriage? Sure!

It might not be love at first sight, but these two can build a relationship that blossoms into a lasting true love. 

We’ll assume that the naturally possessive Scorpio’s actions didn’t scare away the naturally independent Aquarius. We’ll also assume that the Scorpio – who can be a bit introverted – has adapted to the outgoing and quirky ways of the Aquarius. 

In this case, these two zodiac signs can build one of the most intense and passionate relationships in this world. 

The Aquarius man can often become hooked for life on the intense nature of the Scorpio woman. A Scorpio man will often develop an unbreakable intrigue for the unique personality of the Aquarius woman. 

These two will make time for each other, provide emotional support and plenty of intellectual stimulation. Both are happy to give each alone time when needed. 

SInce both Scorpios and Aquarians are inherently ambitious, don’t be surprised if this couple engages on a fulfilling professional quest to make the world a better place.

The key to a lasting marriage between these two is frequent communication and a continued understanding of the differences that naturally occur between water signs and air signs. 

Scorpio And Aquarius In Bed

The passion of the Scorpio zodiac sign and the quirky ways of the Aquarius both translate into the bedroom.

That means this couple will enjoy a red-hot sex life with plenty of experimentation.  

Scorpio and Aquarius love to try new things in bed. When the Scorpio suggests raunchy bedroom games, the Aquarius is more than happy to comply. It might seem as if nothing is taboo between the Aquarius and their Scorpio partner. 

Indeed, the emotional intensity between these two – inside and outside the bedroom – is impossible to ignore.

The Scorpio female is particularly prone to letting her emotions run wild in the bedroom, so the neighbors might be well-advised to sound-proof their homes. In many cases, the adventurous Aquarius will do a great job teaching to ‘let go’ and fully embrace her sexuality. This is where air signs can prove particularly useful in relationships with rigid Scorpios.
