This is how Aries gets along with others, based only on their Sun signs. These are compatibility interpretations for all 12 possible combinations with Aries.
Yes, this is a limited and incomplete way to determine compatibility. But, Sun-sign compatibility is still the base for overall harmony in a relationship. We explained this in one of our synastry lessons where we said that it’s best to start with compatible Sun-sign elements.
The rule of thumb is this: yin and yang do not see eye to eye. Yin goes with yin, and yang goes with yang. While relationships between yin and yang can succeed, they require more work. The earth and water zodiac signs are yin. The fire and air zodiac signs are yang.
Aries and Aries
A love relationship between two Aries people is a pure explosion. For this relationship to work, one of them will have to surrender first place. Aries is very competitive. These two will not only compete with each other, but also tend to argue to make their points. Although they are both yang energy, it can be too much combustion and energy for a harmonious union. This partnership is not recommended unless either of them has other planet placements that soften the character.
Aries and Taurus
Aries and Taurus is a yin-yang partnership. It is possible for the sensuality of Taurus to join with the force of life of Aries if they both work to achieve that. They can complement each other in a good relationship, but they must learn to respect each other’s natural differences: Aries is impulsive, is a fighter, and is characterized by action. Taurus is concentrated and walks slowly but surely. With effort, this can succeed.
Aries and Gemini
Aries and Gemini have many possibilities for forming a stable relationship. Although, they can thrive together with greater security if they both mature. They both greatly value freedom, independence, and the pleasure of satisfying their curiosity. The big difference: The fidelity of Aries against the infidelity of Gemini. Overall, this is compatible yang energy.
Aries and Cancer
Aries and Cancer is a difficult yin-yang partnership. With patience, a lot of patience, on the part of Aries, they can possibly fit together. However, they most both do a considerable amount of work if they want to pursue this relationship. Cancer will feel that Aries is too selfish. Cancer will feel very insecure every time the unpredictable Aries decides to go out where the action is. Aries, on the other hand, will come to feel exasperated with Cancer’s insecurity. This relationship requires hard work.
Aries and Leo
Aries and Leo is fire against fire, but that does not mean this relationship is impossible. There will be moments of great explosion, since both Aries and Leo have a strong character. Leo must give up a little control of the relationship. In exchange for giving up some control, Leo can enjoy all the things that Aries does to offer love. Aries does not have problems as long as it reinforces Leo’s self-esteem. Aries enjoys the independence that Leo offers, which increases the more Aries reinforces Leo’s self-esteem.
Aries and Virgo
This is a difficult relationship to consolidate. Aries and Virgo both have a strong personality and their goals are quite different. Aries is a personality of action while Virgo does not stop analyzing and shredding every situation that arises. Aries needs to move, and Virgo blocks Aries with Virgo’s criticisms and reprimands. With much effort, maybe they will find the way.
Aries and Libra
Aries and Libra can build a solid relationship because they have the base of complementary signs. The biggest difficulty will be Libra trying to constantly point out to Aries that there is a better way to carry out this or that action. And, Aries will constantly act without consideration of Libra’s view. In order for this issue not to cut the relationship short, Aries and Libra will have to appeal to their tolerance towards each other’s way. Aries and Libra are opposing ends of the same axis; they must meet in the middle.
Aries and Scorpio
A relationship between Aries and Scorpio will immediately reveal itself as complicated. The best common ground where these two can understand each other is in the physically intimate arena. But, they are very different both in the way of thinking and in the way of feeling. Scorpio wants total control of the relationship and its partner, but Aries will be unwilling to surrender it. An occasional relationship works best between them.
Aries and Sagittarius
Aries and Sagittarius can be a very good relationship. Sagittarius will help Aries learn how to get rid of the constant obligations and responsibilities that weigh down its life. Aries, in turn, will help Sagittarius to channel its life with greater responsibility. If they go slowly, they will have a lasting relationship.
Aries and Capricorn
Aries and Capricorn together make a very, very difficult relationship. Their personalities are too different to complement each other in a harmonic way. Aries acts on impulse without planning, while Capricorn plans endlessly before taking a step. Aries will not endure the constant criticism from Capricorn. Aries finds Capricorn’s tone too authoritative. Capricorn, on the other hand, will have great difficulty supporting the way in which Aries manages its life, which Capricorn finds foolish.
Aries and Aquarius
A relationship between Aries and Aquarius can come to bear good fruit. Both members should have patience. Aries and Aquarius both have a need for freedom and independence. In this, they will understand each other. The difficulties will come from the impetuous and abrupt way in which Aries acts, because Aquarius requires more time and security before acting upon something.
Aries and Pisces
Pisces is too introverted and ethereal for Aries, who is a sign of pure action and who faces life without delay. For Pisces, Aries is a risk that they do not think they are willing to take. Pisces needs security and tranquility in order to develop and thrive. These are qualities that Aries hardly gives off. For this relationship to work, Aries must mitigate their impulses.
Aries in Love and Passion
Aries are primal when they set out to conquer someone. Both Aries men and women like to take the initiative. Men, to show their masculinity, and female, to test their attractiveness. As a consequence, some of their adventures do not go beyond the initial curiosity and excitement of the conquest, and they end right away.
However, when an Aries truly falls in love, there is no middle ground. Deep down, they are romantic idealists, and they will do everything in their power to keep the relationship alive.
Some make great use of their proverbial optimism, while others are unable to see beyond their own desires and needs.
Aries need to express themselves with their bodies. They know how to enjoy sexuality fully. Aries men and women are very active and spontaneous in this area, although sometimes they are too demanding.
Aries in Marriage
For an Aries to feel happy in a relationship, their partner must make sure that the relationship does not become routine and predictable. Aries need action, variety and stimulation, although they usually remain faithful to their partner.
Aries men are prone to certain macho attitudes, so they sometimes find it hard to get along with strong, independent women. However, many Aries men are confident enough to know how to appreciate a partner with character, to whom they provide the freedom and support she needs.
Aries women have a reputation for being difficult to deal with. They are very authoritarian, and many choose a docile partner who allows them to call the shots. However, such couples do not usually last, as deep down Aries women prefer a strong and proud partner who is at their level without dominating them.
A mere trifle! Those who succeed in overcoming the bar will be rewarded with a faithful and affectionate companion, whose joy of life will be a permanent source of inspiration for them.
