Just remember how magical it is when an Aquarius accepts your moves. This is no easy task. They'll slowly turn from gently holding your hand and letting you touch their hair to kissing you as they please, and for long bouts of time. This is a creature that sees far ahead into the future and loves to gather information effectively before making a decision. Don't let your insecurities drive them away, and make your insecurities clear and they'll do what they can to comfort you that's their instinct. They want things to work and they want things to be smooth, and they don't want to hurt you.
Still, you are a Scorpio, which means that you have the power to hurt them, so be careful.
Scorpios know how to sting. Your power to dissect and ridicule can hurt an Aquarius extensively. They really want to trust you.
If you sting an Aquarius, they'll block you out of their life, which is exactly what you don't want. So long as you don't sting them, they will accept you with open arms.

Great article with great insights, Andrea. I'm a Scorpio with Aquarius rising. This pairing absolutely fascinating as described in your article. I think the motto for success of this duo is, "Look for the Invisible Mirror," which I'll describe later. Scorpio's mission is to create deep, intimate, interpersonal relationships where love, care, and respect are prioritized and reciprocated while trust is maintained. Aquarius has this built right in: its mission is to cast this out in a broader, interactive circle, and there's a reason for this which I'll get into in a bit.
What's interesting is watching these two try - and hopefully succeed - at connecting with each other, which might happen subliminally and instantaneously, though neither party can put their finger on why. Scorpio, being the Fixed Water sign of the zodiac, is like a mirror when it interacts with other signs - it's the surface of a still lake or puddle if the Scorpio is shallow which others can see themselves in.
This accounts for Scorpio's penetrating gaze: it gives the impression that Scorpio can read other people's minds or see into their souls, which is probably true. It's this reflective quality which not only gives Scorpio a bad reputation, but oftentimes difficulties in life because, if others see their flaws in the mirror, many will get angry, upset, and lash out at the mirror for being ugly or flawed when it's actually them and don't want to admit it. Their flaws are not nearly as readily apparent with other signs as they are with Scorpio, which can result in a litany of life experiences for Scorpio where they are scapegoated, abused, projected on, blame-shifted upon, etc.
It's not uncommon for a Scorpio child to be born to a sociopathic parent for this reason see the movie "Precious. You can't change the mirror, but you can change it's depth of perception. Your subject will almost always open up to you about their fears or issues.
Being blamed for having a characteristic of another BY that very other is what causes Scorpio to become more secretive, withdrawn, selective, suspicious, and esoteric - even traumatized. People keep throwing their garbage into its lake, and it needs to single out those and this is where Scorpio's quest for deep, interpersonal relationships come in who are not only afraid of their of reflection, but who are willing to dive underneath the still waters, see the pollution, care about Scorpio, and assist with either removing the trash or adding fresh water.
And this is where Aquarius - the Water Bearer - comes in. That pitcher of water that Aquarius is holding, Scorpio? That's either filled with fresh water Aquarius is willing to replenish you or it's empty and Aquarius is looking to take some of you away because their own well runs dry. It's up to you to decide who you're dealing with here. If it's the former?
This is the best friend you could ask for right now and no one is going to be able to heal you like this person. If it's the latter, they're going to try to manipulate you to become vulnerable and emotionally labile so that they feel better about themselves; that is, they fill up that pitcher with your tears like a vampire. While Scorpio is akin to being mirror, Aquarius is the "Invisible Man. But because of this invisible quality, other signs will NEVER notice their flaws during their interactions with Aquarius even though Aquarius ALWAYS will unless Aquarius tells them - which gives some Aquarians the reputation of being tactless, which is more out of exasperation of others' lack of self-awareness.
In some cases, the tactlessness might stem from insecurities. Otherwise, the Aquarius can come across as easy-going and affable, which enables Aquarius to build the social network previously mentioned.
Aquarius needs this like Scorpio needs deep, interpersonal relationships - it's cleansing for them. Whereas Scorpio can have a hypnotic, penetrating gaze, the eyes of Aquarius can portray something that's distant and hand-off. Scorpios see into; Aquarians see through. But what happens when the Invisible Man stands in front of a mirror?
Aquarius can see just fine that Scorpio reflects and - more importantly to the Aquarius - how or what it's reflecting, but it can't see Scorpio's image behind or within the mirror's reflection. Nor can Aquarius see anything about itself; Scorpio can't reflect anything invisible.
Which might be good for the Scorpio, because Aquarius is unlikely to blame-shift because they can't see Scorpio reflecting their flaws back to them since they're not visible. Scorpio, on the other hand, can reflect "nothingness" back. In other words, Scorpio can sense this invisible quality of Aquarius but that's as far as it goes as far as being able to glean information about the person in front of them.
Both parties can see what the other is about, but neither can really see the other for who they really are unless they communicate and become more apparent to each other. The more one asks the other, "How are you? But, now, there's no need for a mirror - because both Scorpio and Aquarius can now see each other and see they are the same: they found the invisible mirror. Idk what it is I kid you not the second we met there was this magnetic spark. The past couple dates we had I felt like time is irrelevant.
We have intellectual conversations. Never a dull moment with him. Actually, it's the other way around. Scorpio and all water signs and earth signs are traditionally feminine signs while all air signs and fire signs are masculine signs. I don't understand why modern astrologers exaggerate or hype up Scorpio like this. Along with Capricorn, it has one of the weakest moon placements so it's hardly as stable or powerful as many modern astrologers claim.
This was so very helpful. I was in a horrible relationship with a Cancer for about 6 years and I believe it coaxed me into becoming a Phoenix. I have a lot of issues, but facing my insecure feelings head on help me leaps and bounds. I'm not a Scorpio who likes many sexual partners. I crave one person to share life with, and I had my walls completely up.
That's tell I met a Aquarius. He broke my walls down in one day, and I feel my obsession kicking in but doing my all to fight it. I'm in love with the idea of a worth opponent to help me chance my ways. Things were going crazy fast, and I feel once I stated my emotions things might've hit a dead end. But I'm going to ride the waves with this one. If it's meant to be it'll be.
I can't control what happens, and I'm fine with that. Many Scorpio man suffers from narcissistic disorder. Ladies, please read expert articles. Their behavior is a diagnosis.
Everything is all about power and their ego. Manipulation, jealousy, mind games, tests, selfishness, arrogance, mood changes.. This is my experience. At first it was a great attraction but now he killed all the emotions in me. Sorry for my english.
Usually they meet through business or some form of intrigue. And THEN you get to their respective differences. It's been a year and she is still in my mind. Still, if I see her again, I will run away to the end of the world so she can't hurt me again.
Sexual chemistry was intense but there was something in her eyes, pure evil. I wish I never met her, I knew it but I didn't trust my intuition. That was truly amazing read! The research on the two signs was submountable accurate with the compatiablity traits.
At work, it may my morning. Thank you for sharing, I pray that the universal propals you where you destiny to be and become A True Water bearer. I knew he was a Scorpio from the moment he defined his sex life. We are the opposite when it comes to sex. I am very selective. BUT, something is there. We are getting to know one another on a more personal level. So this is taking time.
