Aries in Relationships
Partners of different zodiac signs bring out slightly different facets of the Aries personality. Some elements however are fairly common to all Aries relationships. Aries is a direct and forthright lover. They don’t generally play mind games, and you will typically know exactly where you stand when in a relationship with an Aries.
They can sometimes be relatively aggressive and domineering partners, but it’s done in a genuine, enthusiastic and bold manner which is hard to find fault with. Overall the excitement of dating an Aries overrides their take charge attitude. Along these lines they are often the initiator of a relationship, and the most common complaint is that they can come on too strong or try to move things along too fast.
Whether male or female it’s worth noting that Aries don’t want weak partners. Just because they tend towards being dominating it doesn’t mean they don’t want to work for it! Quite the opposite, they often get bored rapidly with a partner who is a pushover. They typically do best with an equally feisty and confident lover.
Aries is one of the most physically protective signs of the Zodiac, typically not hesitating to risk life or limb if a loved one is in danger. The flip side to this is that they rarely will back down from a fight or challenge, no matter how bad the odds may initially appear. Courageous and full of integrity, it’s hard not to admire them in this area.
In a relationship Aries may become jealous fairly easily. More to the point, if they’re jealous you’ll hear about it sooner rather than later. This isn’t a person who withdraws to ponder such things; they take the direct approach to confrontation. Their openness is a good thing in this instance as they don’t sit back and resent you, but instead boldly explain themselves.
This is a passionate sign, unafraid of risks and often willing to accept a challenge. This can lead to promiscuity and poor choices in the spur of the moment. Similarly, Aries lovers aren’t famous for being patient or subtle, and often can be turned off by partners who are overly cautious, reserved, analytical or sensitive.
Aries and Aries Relationship
Who’s going to be the boss in this relationship? Aries are outgoing and dominant and at times each Aries will want it to be all about them so one Aries will have to stand aside to let the other one take center stage. Both will want their say in what’s going on, where and when. There’s a strong possibility of power struggles taking place, with neither Aries backing down. Aries are known to start a lot of projects, as they excel at initiating actions, but they got bored and can quickly move on to the next exciting thing that takes their attention.
If neither of them encourages the other to finish what they start, frustration can set in if a high level of achievement is not accomplished. Responsibilities need to be clearly outlined to avoid nastiness. When things go wrong, the Aries tone of voice can be cutting and sharp. Selfishness can also be an issue as the Aries nature is to serve themselves. As both partners possess this trait, there will need to be a concerted effort on each Aries’ part to consider the other’s feelings.
Aries and Taurus Relationship
These two signs move at different paces. Aries are action orientated and have a fast paced energy; they want it and they want it now. Taurus on the other hand likes to think through the possible outcomes and different scenarios before they act and believe Aries rash actions are reckless and foolhardy. Aries has no time for Taurus’ steady reliable ways and feel they are wasting their life away. Even if they do overcome this difference and learn to see how they complement each other, it may work, that is until there is a difference of opinion.
Aries are determined to get their own way and if Taurus feels strongly about an area of life or Aries has threatened to unravel one of Taurus’ deep seated values, Taurus will stubbornly say, ‘No’ and there will be a stale mate. Who will win in the end? No one and that is precisely the problem with the Aries + Taurus connection. When two headstrong, slightly obstinate signs connect, confrontations can be frequent and emotionally and physically draining.
Aries and Gemini Relationship
Easygoing Gemini is no challenge for the high spirited Aries. Gemini is likely to go along with most things and although an Arian likes to get their own way, they can enter into a coma of boredom if there’s no contest. Aries lives for the challenge, and if a quest of theirs is too easy, including the courtship of a love-mate they can consider the prize of a lower value and quickly lose interest. The harder an Aries has to work to win the heart of their love-mate the more valuable the prize becomes.
Gemini’s love to experience life but they are not into game playing on any level and if they need to be strategic to capture their Aries lover’s attention it is really not worth the trouble. The other area of compatibility concern here is Aries clearly sees themselves as the leader and will willingly take charge. Gemini is relatively easygoing, but they are no fool and will tire quickly of being bossed around and simply stop responding to Aries demands, which will infuriate Aries.
Aries and Cancer Relationship
They both have definite opinions and if by chance their overall values are different, particularly on a political or spiritual issue, there is likely to be continual tension in the relationship. Cancer is sensitive and needs their companion to provide comfort, compassion and understanding. Aries have been known to lack the compassion, and can act before they think leaving a trail of emotional hurt in their path.
If they realized this fact they could retreat and do damage control, but Aries quickly forgets as they are already on to the next challenge that takes their attention. Often they are unaware of the damage their rash actions have caused. This can lead Cancer to stew and brood, reliving the exchange in their mind intensifying the hurt each time. If this connection works it can be dynamic, but if it does not work it will be over before it begins. Cancer will pull the shutters down and walk away leaving Aries wondering what happened.
Aries and Leo Relationship
Their biggest challenge is to put each other as number one. The order of command can be difficult for the Ram and Lion. The Ram likes to take charge and the Lion doesn’t take orders easily. The Lion can be bossy and the Ram does not like to be told what to do as they are usually the one giving the orders. One-upmanship can be a game they play and it can be a fun challenge if not taken too seriously.
If not careful, they can let their competitive natures become too serious and as a result it is no longer a game that inspires them to do better and instead of being on the same team they can become fierce opponents. Leo generosity may also pose a problem for the Aries partner because it may seem to them they have obtained the Leo’s affections too easily. If the Leo partner can reserve some of their tendency to over give, they could overcome this issue.
Aries and Virgo Relationship
The problem for these two signs is to get them to agree on anything! They both have strong opinions and although Virgo is a mutable sign, when it concerns matters of an intellectual nature, if they know they are right they will not back down and whether they are right or wrong neither will an Aries. Friction is caused by them not appreciating each other’s unique skills. Aries is a doer and is proactive and Virgo is a deep thinker, who gathers a lot of knowledge, they are experts in their field of study.
In a nutshell, Aries are general about everything and Virgo is exact about everything. They can come to the same conclusions but have different ways of arriving there. In terms of view of self Aries and Virgo again diverge in opinion with Aries supremely confident and boastful while Virgo is modest almost humble. There may also be difficulty finding common interests and keeping the active Aries entertained as Virgo is likely to focus on one hobby or activity while Aries likes to dabble in many.
Aries and Libra Relationship
There is a lot of conflict on how each sign comes to decisions. It’s as if Aries and Libra exist in different orbits. Aries is in the fast lane and likes to make fast decisions; if it sounds right and looks good, why not, let’s make a decision and get the show on the road. In the mean time, Libra is still at the intersection wondering what way to turn.
Libra likes to look at every possible outcome, analyze it, review some more and then procrastinate about which way to proceed. It’s total disarray, which doesn’t concern Aries so much as they just get on with what they are doing and don’t worry too much about anyone else, but if Libra feels rushed or cornered it does present disharmony and this is a serious problem for Libra. Upsetting Libra’s equilibrium is a definite no.
Aries and Scorpio Relationship
When two strong wills like Aries and Scorpio get together, they both need freedom to move and make their own decisions. Neither of these signs are good with wilting flowers, so they have a healthy respect for each other, but Scorpio considers themselves skilled enough to win against anyone and the ram will rarely back down and this is where the trouble starts. Power struggles over not only major issues, but also minor ones can be a problem.
Scorpio can draw Aries into their web of arguments, and when fiery Aries is pushed into a corner, they will fight back with acid and candid tongue. This may not mean much to Aries because in the next short while they will be on to something else and forget the incident, but sultry water sign Scorpio can brood while thinking through ways to get back at Aries. Their strength of character is what attracts them to each other, but can be the very character trait which results in their downfall, with neither willing to compromise.
Aries and Sagittarius Relationship
It can be a challenge to coincide your busy schedules. These two need to schedule time in their day planners just to get together and be prepared to shut the rest of the world out so they can reconnect and catch up with their respective trials and successes. As both these signs are natural extroverts, there is also concern that one is going to outshine the other.
Aries forceful manner doesn’t work on Sagittarius and the Sagittarian philosophical manner can be totally lost on Aries as they are on to the next best thing and don’t sit long enough to reflect and ponder on life itself, like deep thinking Sagittarius does. The potential for a battle of ego is also possible here as both signs will always believe they are right and the other is wrong.
Aries and Capricorn Relationship
If not careful, these two can get in to a real power struggle, and if this does occur in the dynamic of their relationship neither of them is going to want to back down. They both think they are right and can bother become self righteous with their attitude. In the end if a compromise is not agreed upon the goat will disregard the ram and steadily move forward with their own plans in a methodical manner.
The ram can become distracted and head off in a different direction. All will be well for a while until the situation occurs again, and if not dealt with, serious crakes in the relationship foundations can occur. These two can be polarized in their outlooks - Aries likes to be forever optimistic, while Capricorn will look on the side of caution. This is actually a good balance, but whether they can appreciate that, is another thing.
Aries and Aquarius Relationship
Even though there is a great deal of love and respect between these two signs, just for the simple fact that they are strong leadership signs there is a need to learn unconditional love and acceptance. Aries, the fire sign, goes head first into anything that gets their attention, and Aquarian, being an air sign, will at first intellectualize everything before they consider making a move, which can infuriate the Ram as they have already made up their mind and are ready for action.
Their different ways of operating can end up causing much frustration on a day-to-day basis until they learn to respect the others needs and opinions. If they can learn to sometimes agree to disagree, instead of always being right, they can live happily ever after.
Aries and Pisces Relationship
It doesn’t matter how many times Pisces tells or shows Aries that their brashness is hurtful, they fail to recognize that Pisces has a deep level of sensitivity. Aries can be straight to the point in a curt and direct manner with their communication, which can wound the vulnerable Pisces all the way to their inner heart.
Pisces hates confrontation, and often, rather than say anything, will sink into their inner space in order to protect their beautiful, but fragile and sensitive self. It can take weeks for Pisces to recover from an Arian outburst, while Aires will forget it in minutes and move on without too much thought. Pisces likes to please, but there is a limit as to how far they will go to stay on Aries good side.
