Aquarius/Leo Relationship Axis
Ascendant/Descendant (1st house/7th house)
Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house indicates the type of partner you may attract, who you're attracted to, and the method of relating within that relationship.
The Ascendant, or Rising sign, is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, our “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is our outer personality, temperament, and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment growing up. It is the way others see us and also gives indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define your physical appearance.
The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
In relationships, Aquarius has Uranus as modern ruler and with karmic Saturn as the ancient ruler. If you have an Aquarius Ascendant, you appear honest and truthful. You make friends easily and are an inventive conversationalist. You're appearance, style and attire is unique and "different". Because you're a fixed sign, although you are quite fair and tolerant, you can also be very inflexible and impatient. Interestingly, you are apt to be so friendly, enjoy the company of friends and friendly banter, yet you're completely happy alone. Your partner may not "get you" or understand your possible aloof and/or erratic nature.
You're not easy to love....
Why is everything, with you so complicated?
Why do you make it hard to love you
While I ha---te it?
Cause if you really wanna be alone, I,
Would throw my hands up cause baby I tried
But everything with you is so complicated,
Oh why (Oh why)?
~ Complicated by Rihanna
With Solar ruled Leo on the descendant you seek a loyal, outgoing, confident partner, one who will be your bet friend. Attraction to a partner with those qualities who is outgoing and a good parent is likely. Independence and not feeling tied down is critical for Aquarians.
One of the first things you could look at in a potential partner, is their Sun placement since the Sun rules your descendant. It is also possible for an Aquarian Ascendant to attract a partner who has Uranus or Saturn prominent in their chart. Prominent Uranus or Saturn would be in aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mars or Venus, or elevated in conjunction to the MC (10th house cusp)or IC (4th house cusp) conjunct or ruling their Ascendant or Descendant or Sun sign in Aquarius.
I am famous for my generosity
They say I am the kindest,
But it is easier to...
Give than receive love...
Give than receive love.”

Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps that are the divisions of the houses or areas of life.
