Famous Scorpio-Aquarius Couple: Owen Wilson and Sheryl Crow
It’s hard for an outsider to know what’s going on in this relationship because it’s one of the most self-contained, exclusionary combinations. What you have is two people with exceptionally strong wills who have agreed to compromise their wills — at least temporarily — for an ulterior purpose. These two god-like individuals do not ordinarily compromise. There is nothing warm, cute, or fuzzy about them. So whatever brings them together has to be very compelling. Perhaps it is just that they finally meet someone they consider an equal. It’s like two teenagers playing chicken in a car. Secretly each one can’t believe that they’ve met their match. No one in their right mind should mess with a Scorpio and it is gospel that it is utterly impossible to control an Aquarius. You can see immediately that this relationship will either function at a very high level or it will deteriorate rapidly into a war of control and wills.
How to Attract a Scorpio Man as an Aquarius Woman: Just the fact that you think you can handle him is enticement enough. He’s used to stalking, but not the kind of mental stalking that you’re capable of. You can easily out-think him and you might as well get in practice from the beginning because you will need every advantage you can conjure. If he’s interested in you, he’s interested in your power, not your “feminine aspects.” Scorpios like to mate with something that they want to incorporate into their arsenal. If this sounds like a laboratory experiment, it is, and you know it.
How to Attract an Aquarius Woman as a Scorpio Man: Well, to begin with, you might as well be as rude and crude as you are capable of being. No reason to hold back on the shock and awe. She loves to be shocked, and if you’re lucky, you might awe her. It’s your power she’s interested in. Show your self-mastery and by all means, keep yourself under control. You are playing with a mind that fascinates you but that you will never control. See if you can get on her radar screen and let the games begin.
Degree of Romance: Romance is hardly the question. Where is all the power? And what are we going to do with it?
Degree of Passion: For these two signs, passion is a waste of time. It is actually viewed as a weakness. To be passionate would be to render one’s self vulnerable.
Degree of Friendship: After the war-room games are settled, and one of them has attained a slight edge over the other (depends upon individuals and circumstances), these two can actually be great comrades-in-arms, which is as close to friendship as they will ever get. Each sign has a constant edge on it, calculating advantages and options for power moves. If they agree to ally against the world, they’ll make a formidable gridiron of defensive and offensive strategies. With an ally like this, who needs friends?
Degree of Marriage: These two play for keeps. They may be one of the few pairs that can ignore the realities and just live together under the sacred bond of trust. Not to overly idealize Scorpio and Aquarius, but the bond of trust is likely to be spelled out this way: “If you leave me, I will destroy you and everything you care about.” You see, these two speak the same language.
Progression of Relationship: Slam bam thank you ma’am? If these two find a match in one another, they will both drive relentlessly for closure, each one moving to forestall other possibilities, to close off other options, and seal the deal. It’s like making a contract with the Godfather.
Sex: The secret glue that coerces each one to give a little and compromise is their sexual connection, which is probably going to be impossible for others to understand. There is something thrilling about not being able to really ever possess the other person. Many issues are worked out in the bedroom through kinky games and real commando stand-offs. If you’re not an Aquarius or a Scorpio, don’t go there. But if you really must know, it’s the Aquarius who will win and dominate — and believe it or not, Scorpio will love it.
When It’s Over: This is one relationship that’s likely to end very badly. There will be no victor, and the spoils may be destroyed as well in a cold fury of retaliation. It might be best to realize this going into this relationship, so you lock down some assets and territory for your own private domain that the other person can’t ever get to. That you can do this and still have the degree of self it takes to make this relationship work is one of the paradoxes.
