The twelve Sun Signs of the Zodiac correspond to twelve equal segments of the calendar year (although the zodiac signs dates don’t match up precisely to our calendar months). The first step in determining the zodiac sign compatibility of any match is identifying both your own Sun Sign and that of the other person, and understanding common characteristics of each of the zodiac signs.
As you read about your own zodiac sign meanings, and general characteristics of people who share this sign, take some time to think about how these characteristics actually make themselves apparent in your life and your choices.

Next, when you look at the sign characteristics of a person in whom you are romantically interested, take some more time to think about things you know about that person, and how the traits you observe fit the sign to which they belong. Your own individual traits, combined with or interacting with theirs, will be the foundation of your assessment of horoscope sign compatibility.
People born under Aries horoscope sign are adventurous, outgoing, and active. They also tend to be very trusting, even naive, in their dealings with other people; and that trait remains intact even in the face of hardships or misfortunes, which makes an Aries wonderfully resilient. An Aries is more likely to be a “do-er” than a “talker,” loves a challenge, and prefers a personal experience to a vicarious one.
- Mars, the planet which rules Aries, is a strongly masculine influence, meaning that even women born under Aries tend to be assertive and adventurous. They aren’t shy about expressing their opinions and feelings, or (like Mars, the god of war) taking up a battle for their beliefs. This competitive nature shows itself in sports and other activities as well.
- Fire, the element associated with Aries, signifies enthusiasm, along with a burning desire to be in the game. They play as hard as they work, competitive and considering their needs first in most things they undertake.
- In love, an Aries abhors being restricted. Any romantic attachment that feels too possessive or restrictive might send the Ram bounding away.
Aries horoscope sign matches and compatibility
If you wish to attract the interest of an Aries, you’ll do well with action and energy. You can’t afford to be overly touchy or sensitive with an Aries–live big and enjoy the ride.
Here’s what you can expect in a relationship between an Aries and…
The Taurus tends to stay anchored in a comfort zone, while Aries is an adventurer. The two can find it difficult if they pull in opposite directions, but the relationship can provide an anchor of stability for the Aries and an invitation to new experience for the Taurus. If they strike the right balance, this can be a bang-up match.
Both Aries and Gemini tend to be restless and anxious, and their combined desire to venture into new things can bond them. Gemini will likely be the talker for both of them, but still desires adventure and so will keep pace with the Aries in their quieter but determined mode of action.
Cancer’s introvert tendencies can make it a difficult match with extroverted Aries. The moodiness and sensitivity of Cancer may not be an easy fit with the bluntness of an Aries, but the generous high-spiritless of Aries may make up for it.
Leo and Aries admire each other’s outgoing and adventuresome qualities–so long as they don’t end up clashing with each other. Both of these two are accustomed to taking a leadership role, and they may have some difficulty settling into a pattern of behavior that suits both of them.
It is their very opposite natures which can make these two a solid match. Aries provides the fiery tendency toward adventure, while Virgo nurtures quietly from behind the scenes, and basks in the possessiveness of the Aries, which feels comfortable and reassuring to the Virgo.
Aries and Libra can be chemically attracted by one another’s passions and emotions, and their shared propensity for active social lives. One challenge for the pair may be the tendency of Aries to make snap decisions, compared to the Libra’s preference for thoughtful deliberation.
A Scorpio’s sensitivity may prove difficult when exposed to an Aries unbridled tongue, and the demand for Adventure by the Aries may prove difficult against the Scorpio’s intense possessiveness, which can feel stifling to Aries. However, the tendency of both toward a positive attitude and the willingness to expend energy can be productive when they expend that energy on building the relationship.
Aries and Sagittarius share optimism and enthusiasm, as well as a love of adventure and a penchant for communication. A Sagittarius often accepts with ease the dominating tendencies of the Aries, particularly since the Aries will pull them along on the adventures which both of them crave.
Capricorn and Aries share a desire to succeed, but very different approaches to achieving that goal. Capricorn is a planner, while Aries tends to jump into action. Aries expresses feelings, while Capricorn internalizes them. This can be a challenging pairing.
An Aquarius respects different ways of approaching life, and won’t be inclined to stifle any of the natural exuberance or adventuresome nature of Aries. The intellectual curiosity of Aquarius keeps them interested in their partner’s doings, and the two enjoy freedom within the relationship that can actually help them grow closer.
A sensitive Pisces may have difficulty handling the forthright communication style of the Aries, while impulsive Aries may be driven to distraction by the inability of Pisces to make a decision. If the two can find a middle ground, the emotional support they provide one another can be a solid basis for relationship.
12. Another Aries
For two Aries to make it together, one generally needs to cede the leadership role to the other. Given the fiery nature of both parties under the shared zodiac signs, the relationship is unlikely to be peaceful or tranquil, but the energy which both of them brings to the relationship can be used to build the relationship itself.
