Aries, it’s your turn to rise like the phoenix and shine. As a fire sign, you’re friendly and outgoing and people warm to you easily. You’re going to have many acquaintances, friends, and lovers in your life.
You’ll be fortunate enough that some of those people will become very close to you indeed. We’re here to give you some hints that will help you to understand your relationships with other people and how you can use astrology to improve them.
Aries Strengths in a Relationship
You are always seeking ways to make life interesting! You don’t like to be stifled by routine. You will be the type of partner that will always think of new places and activities to do with your partner. Your desire for novelty applies to the bedroom as well.
Your interests are many and varied, and that means that you’re usually surrounded by people from all backgrounds and walks of life. You have no hesitation about asking people to help you get what you want from life, but you don’t depend on them to accomplish what needs to be done.
You’re determined and focused. You are a go-getter and you take initiative, it means that you’ll reach your goals with or without assistance from others. You generally have the energy for physical activity, so when you find something you enjoy and pour yourself into it.
You’re adaptable, that makes you strong and able to deal with the ups and downs of life. If you don’t focus and prioritize you’ll come over as unreliable or inconsistent, so you need to cultivate a balance.
Aries Challenges in a Relationship
While you are kind to people, you don’t suffer fools lightly and you’re not afraid to put people in their place when it’s needed! This can win you the respect of some people, while it can be offputting to some who aren’t used to it. You may need to work on your tact.
You sometimes have a tendency to act without seeing how your decisions influence others. You need to be careful that it’s not all about you all the time—give other people due consideration, too! This will help people warm to you and ensure you don’t get a reputation for thoughtlessness which can harm your relationships.
You barge in where angels fear to tread, and that makes you vulnerable in some circumstances. For all your bravado and your sense of adventure, you’re often naive. You get hurt easily by trusting others too completely. The good news is that you get over it pretty easily, too!
You’re moods change in a heartbeat, too, and while you may forget when you threw a temper tantrum over something, others might not. You’ll have to learn to keep a lid on things, and channel that angst in another way.

Aries Compatibility with Other Zodiac Signs
Aries / Aries
Do you feel like you’re looking in the mirror! You’ll be forgiven if you do! You’re so alike, and that’s what will bring you close, but it’s also what will come between you. You’re both quite possessive, but you also both demand your independence. Control issues could arise as you are both ruled by Mars and you both want to be the leader.
For this relationship to stand the test of time, you’ll have to find the middle ground. Compromise will be the ley to keeping love alive in this pairing, with you both being strong-minded people this may be easier said than done. One thing’s for sure. You’ll never be bored!
Aries / Taurus
Taurus might drive you nuts with their relaxed and laid back attitude towards everything! You’re impulsive and rearing to go, while as an earth sign, Taurus is serious and reserved. As frustrated as you might get with their apparent lack of motivation, they’re going to get annoyed at you, and what they perceive as a lack of responsibility.
It’s only when you start to look at the areas that will compliment each other and realize that you can encourage Taurus to be a bit more adventurous and they can teach you how to be a bit more reliable, that this relationship will start to move forward in a positive way.
Aries / Gemini
As an air sign, Gemini is a bit of a social butterfly. You’re both very gregarious and outgoing and want to get the most out of the moments in your life. Neither of you want a traditional routine. You can’t stand to be bored, and you enjoy new experiences. As long as you both want the same things you’ll be great together.
If there’s a conflict of interests, then there’s going to be a clash of power. This has potential, though, because you’ll respect each other’s needs for space and you’ll have many adventures to explore together. The one warning for this pairing is to make sure that you’re not encouraging each other to be irresponsible!
Aries / Cancer
You’re passionate and loyal, but when it comes to devotion, Cancer is going to give you a run for your money. Cancer is a water sign, and their feelings run deep. Your relationship with a Cancerian could even make you feel stifled because they need to feel needed and useful to you.
A Cancer is all or nothing and will have a hard time to understand your need for freedom. This is going to be a sore point between you. If you can teach your Cancer partner how to be more independent, while at the same time allowing them to teach you more about compassion, then this has some excellent potential.
Aries / Leo
You’re both fire signs, so you’ll automatically have a lot of core personality traits in common. You’re both outgoing and enthusiastic about life. You’ll appreciate Leo’s need for individuality and recognition, and they’ll allow you your independence. You’ll have to make sure to massage Leo’s ego, though, and make them the center of attention.
Leo’s can get very jealous and possessive if they feel you aren’t;t lavishing enough of your time on them. This has the makings of a good match, provided that neither one of you insists on taking control of the relationship or trying to manipulate the other for your own gain.
Aries / Virgo
You’re both honest to the point of tactlessness, and as impulsive as you are you just may find yourself being constantly criticized for your actions. Virgo doesn’t mean to be harsh; in fact, as a mutable sign, they’re usually pretty easy-going. They’re just detail oriented, where you prefer to leap before you look.
If this relationship is going to work, you’re going to have to encourage Virgo to be a bit more adventurous, while you learn how to slow down and make decisions with a little more thought and logic before you proceed. Learn to take calculated risks with this earth sign.
Aries / Libra
Libra will still be making up their mind long after you’ve already taken action and done whatever it is you were discussing! You make snap judgments, but Libra will dither forever—and that’s likely to infuriate you. Once you’ve made up your mind to do something, you see it as already done, and that will further vex Libra.
Your Libra partner might begin to think you don’t care, that they don’t matter, and, being a cardinal sign, that’s not going to sit well with them at all. The relationship isn’t doomed because Libra’s adaptable attitude has the potential to balance your vivacious energy. Compromise is the key to success, and that may be hard to reach.
Aries / Scorpio
Scorpio is a water sign, you can expect the sparks to fly here. You’re both so passionate, but you’re signs are at an awkward aspect to each other called an inconjunct (or quincunx), so you’ll find a lot of discord here, too. Remember, passion can mean anger as well as activity between the sheets!
You may forget arguments and discord, but Scorpio won’t—they’ll hold a grudge and work out how to make you pay! You’ll have to find a way to work through this and keep the passion directed in a positive way if this romance is going to succeed.
Aries / Sagittarius
You’re both the element of fire, and you’ve got a nice trine going on between your signs. You’re both energetic and enthusiastic, and your personalities usually complement each other. You’re both so adventurous and impulsive that sometimes rationality disappears! A Sag is known for being a bit tactless at times, too.
You’ll have to make sure that you don’t let your feelings get unnecessarily hurt. A Sagittarius can be just as blunt and impulsive with their words and actions as you can, Aries. If you can get past that, then there’s a fantastic sense of humor and harmony here, and the relationship has great potential.
Aries / Capricorn
While you’re completely different elements, you are both cardinal quality signs, and that will give you a bit of a common ground. You are both purpose driven but you’re going to take different approaches to get to your goals. You’ll keep leaping at solutions until you find one that fits, while Capricorn will take a more cautious and traditional path.
Be aware that your lack of caution might become an irritation to your Cappy partner and make them see you as unreliable and irresponsible. Unless you find a way to brighten things up and add a little spice to your relationship, it could easily become boring for the both of you.
Aries / Aquarius
Even though you’re vastly different, you both like to be independent. You’ll appreciate the other’s need for space and personal freedom. Your love life is likely to be unique and varied, but it takes more than action between the sheets to keep a romance alive.
When you’re in sync, your relationship is nearly invincible, but when you’re out of synch it can be pretty tumultuous. If you’re truly devoted to each other, this won’t happen very often. You’ll both be too absorbed trying to find solutions to let it blow out of proportion.
Aries / Pisces
This relationship is going to take a lot of work. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, and these people are so dreamy and moody that you’ll get exasperated trying to get them to live in reality. You’ll spend all your time trying not to hurt their feelings that you’re more than likely to lose interest before things really get started.
Your one saving grace is that Pisces is so easy going that they’ll let you have the upper hand in this pairing. They’ll try their best to please you. Make them feel safe and secure and this relationship will have the potential to thrive and last for the long-term.
Your strength as a romantic partner is that you keep things interesting and exciting for your lover. You bring an element of novelty that is thrilling and unexpected to many people. You are also a natural leader so people can count on you to take initiative and get things done.
You need to watch your tendency to run roughshod over people’s feeling and your capacity for selfishness which can hurt your relationships. If you can keep your negative qualities in check, Aries people are wonderful partners who can teach some signs how to live life to the fullest.
