If your birthday falls between Jan. 20 and Feb. 19, there's a good chance you've got an Aquarius sun. In astrology, this means you're born under the sign of the ingenious, eccentric water bearer — and you might be curious about Aquarius compatibility when it comes to romance, friendships and the workplace.
Master astrologer Shannon Aganza, creator of MoonGathering Astrology and Numerology Coursework says, "Aquarians will fall in 'like' before they fall in love." If you have your sights — or heart — set on the water bearer of the zodiac, remember that "it's of top priority for an Aquarian to like a person, putting physical chemistry second," she advises.
To understand compatibility in the zodiac, you need first to understand synastry. Synastry is how we look at astrological compatibility between people (and even events). When you talk about astro match-making, you're talking about synastry. It looks at two charts together — your chart and the chart of the other person (or persons). Synastry is not just your sun sign. It also takes into account the houses Aquarius rules and the placement of planets like Mars and Venus.
What this means for you: If you've got an Aquarius sun, don't write off a Virgo or a Scorpio based on sun sign alone. You may read elsewhere that "Aquarius and Cancer are incompatible," but this is far too reductive to be accurate.
