Aquarius is idealistic and can be very abstract and heady,while Scorpio relies more on instinct, intuitive sensitivity, and "gut feelings". Scorpio's passions, irrational loves and hates, and intense emotional responses baffle Aquarius, who is far more rational and cerebral. More importantly, Scorpio is very emotionally attached to a lover and can become intensely fixated on a person. Aquarius is cool, unemotional, and rather aloof by comparison. Aquarius needs lots of friends and acquaintances but is not as involved in personal relationships as most people. This may create an emotional gap between you that may well be hard to reconcile. You are also both stubborn, rather opinionated, and inflexible. You'll need to appreciate and really understand the differences in your temperaments to harmonise in a long-term relationship.
Your emotional natures and needs are so different that there is likely to be quite a bit of dissonance or conflict between you, unless you both come to understand and accept one another. However, you are both quite fixed in your own ways and are not always receptive to changing unless it is on your own terms.
Scorpio needs intense closeness and emotional intimacy, and becomes fiercely attached to loved ones. Extreme possessiveness, jealousy, and an urge to manipulate and control loved ones are feelings Scorpio may contend with. Aquarius, on the other hand, is very independent, resists being possessed or controlled, and is much more mental than emotional.
Emotions are a powerful force in Scorpio's life and Scorpio can become obsessed with a feeling or desire, while Aquarius is much more detached and often out of touch with feelings and emotions. Scorpio's intensity may be met in a cool, dispassionate, highly rational way - or simply by a total lack of comprehension by Aquarius.
Also, Scorpio is intensely private and personal, while Aquarius is very social and needs to participate in the world at large. Involvement in groups, associations, clubs, or community affairs is important to Aquarius. Aquarius' interests are broad and Aquarius needs intellectual companionship and sharing on a mental or spiritual level, which is something Scorpio may or may not appreciate.
Both of you have ideas that are very innovative and progressive, and somewhat ahead of your times. You share a keen interest in scientific discovery, physics, radically new technologies, electronics, and/or esoteric sciences (like astrology) that bridge the gap between soul and body. Each of you is prone to lightning-quick realisations and intuitive insights, and you both have a tendency to get over-stimulated or overloaded with information and ideas. You both tend to be a bit high-strung and sensitive to stress, and would benefit from unplugging the television and stereo sometimes, and regularly cultivating peace and inner stillness.
You tend to have a very unclear or stilted perception of one another, seeing each other through a haze of fantasy, glamour,
or romantic imagination. You may be more taken with the image that you have in your mind of this person that the real none-too-perfect human being. You have trouble dealing with the prosaic aspects of life when you are together. You are also able to blend or merge emotionally with one another and there is a great deal of sympathetic understanding and rapport between you. You "pick up" on one another's moods very easily and may become confused by this at times, unable to distinguish or separate your own feelings of those of your partner.
You spark each other's curiosity and imagination, and you have a great deal of fascination for each other. It is likely that your relationship developed suddenly and impulsively, for your feelings for each other change quickly and unexpectedly. At one moment you find each other sexually irresistible and not much later you may feel angry or indifferent to each other. Your feelings blow hot and cold in this relationship, and consequently there is a tone of instability and inconstancy. It is possible that one, or both, of you will tire of the constant fluctuations. You may feel that there is a lack of commitment, dedication, reliability, stability, causing you to doubt the viability of the relationship. On the other hand, you may find the changes exciting and stimulating. Be grateful that there are always surprises and novelty around the corner - at least you don't have to worry about getting stuck in a rut or bored with your partner.
Sexual expression can be warm and passionate one minute, and extremely aggressive the next. Directness in expressing your love, can be exciting for you both. There is a touch of "erotica" in your relationship.
Deep karmic debts are being worked through here, colouring your relationship with a serious, heavy tone, a sense of obligation and a feeling of confinement. Both of you feel that there is a wall between you that is difficult to overcome, and feelings of distance, coolness, insecurity, and inhibition can prevent you from opening up with one another fully. Feelings and emotional needs get subordinated to practical considerations, duty, work, or other demands.
