ARIES + ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're two high-strung, passionate Fire signs who both like to be the Alpha dominant. As such, you'll need to toss the hot potato back and forth, submitting to the other's rule—at times through gritted teeth. Acquiescence may not come naturally, but it builds a necessary trust. Aries is a paradox: you're the zodiac's infant (its first sign) and its gallant hero (you're ruled by warrior Mars). You want to save the world and be saved at the same time. You'll need to occasionally allow yourself to play wounded knight or damsel in distress, and let your mate charge to your rescue. However, don't spiral into neurotic helplessness or analysis paralysis. Nobody can beat a topic to death quite like you can—but that's what therapists are for, Aries. Neither one of you can be saddled with the emotional care and feeding of an adult baby. You're too independent for that. When your problems gain too much mental gravitas, it's time to move—literally. Disperse your Martian angst and anger with lots of physical exertion. As fellow adventurers, you travel well together. Try snowboarding, exotic bike tours, Costa Rican rainforest expeditions. Passionate sex is another antidote to prickly feelings for your high-touch sign. Like Aries Hugh Hefner, you have a champion libido (and an awesome sense of entitlement). Some Aries couples may mutually agree to flex the terms of your monogamy, although the jealousy it stirs might not be worth the trouble.

ARIES + TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The stubborn Bull locks horns with the willful Ram, nostrils flaring, heads bowed in determination. So begins a fierce but fiery courtship, as splashy and menacing as a Pamplona stampede. Aggression, however uncivilized, is part our Darwinian natures. It certainly is for your signs—who possess an arsenal of steamrolling tactics, from doe-eyed charm to old-fashioned philistine strong-arming. No weak-willed mate will survive your natural selection process. Nor should he. Neither one of you feels safe in the arms of a mate who can't protect you. Thus, your initial faceoff is simply a warning shot: Show me your strength so I can trust you. Once the fanfare is over, you make a great team—like British pop royalty Victoria (Aries) and David (Taurus) Beckham.

As tight as two mafiosos, you like to dress up and flaunt your natural superiority over the rest of the animal kingdom. The deal is sweet for both of you. Taurus gets an attractive show pony and a lusty mate to satisfy his Earthy libido. Aries has a lifelong provider and benefactor to supply creative freedom and endless playtime. Issues can arise if Taurus grows too possessive or tries to tame independent Aries. Indulgent Taurus will need to remain active to keep pace with the energetic Ram (read: lay off the nightly steak frites and vino). You both crave attention, but don't go looking for it outside the relationship, unless you want a real showdown. Like two tots in a nursery, you share a favorite word: Mine!

ARIES + GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) ♥♥♥♥

You're the best of friends, so why not throw in some benefits? You certainly can…but not so fast. Your common traits are exactly what can snuff the spark before it combusts. Namely: impetuous, reckless, unstoppable drive for instant gratification. You want what you want, and you want it NOW. Sure, the adrenaline you evoke from trading edgy banter, bungee jumping, or playing footsie under the conference table might convince you that you're soulmates. However, this attitude will lead to an inchoate relationship, with the two of you skydiving into City Hall before you even know each other's middle names. It doesn't all come out in the wash, so check that laissez-faire attitude when you're ring shopping on the second date. That said, you do have the makings of a great match that's rooted in true friendship, intellectual chemistry and fun. The key is to pace yourselves and to continuously bring new adventures to the table. Boredom is the enemy; it leads to cat-and-mouse games and mental chess matches with each other. Remain active: get involved in a political campaign, build houses for the poor, take an eco-tour or scuba lessons. Host and attend lots of parties with your mutual friends, and busy yourselves with projects that satisfy your short attention spans. Above all, don't turn to each other for advice, unless you like impatient, tough-love coaching and draining circular conversations. Not exactly the soothsaying your sweetie needs in a rare vulnerable moment.

ARIES + CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Aries is the zodiac's baby (its first sign); Cancer is its matriarch, ruling the fourth house of motherhood, home and family. Is this relationship doomed to be an Oedipal cliche? Not if you temper these traits through steady, conscious self-development. Otherwise, you easily lapse into automatic roles that polarize you into a parent-child (or master-and-servant) dynamic. Aries can be selfish—not maliciously, but in a crude, clueless style that leaves Cancer resentful and dismayed at the Ram's lack of nuance. Cancer knows how to play the nurturing giver, but this delicate sign needs room to be vulnerable, too. Aries loves to be coddled, but Cancer's maternal indulgences will create a spoiled brat or a demanding diva. Besides, while the Crab may have a tough outer shell, the true warrior is Aries, ruled by aggressive Mars. Your differences are many: Aries is a diehard independent and Cancer is a family guy; Aries needs freedom, the Crab's possessive grip clings tight. You'll need to compromise, or else the relationship can turn into a competitive, jealous hotbed. You can both brood with the best of them, and your dark days eclipse even the tiniest sliver of hope. Talk about depressing. Swear off the silent treatment and learn to communicate as two adult equals.

ARIES + LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Aries and Leo are Fire signs who love drama, passion and extreme adventure. You're a flashy, outspoken duo that plays by your own bold agenda. Restless souls, you need lots of physical and intellectual stimulation—politics, inspiring conversations, startup businesses—you'll juggle them all, making it look so easy. Of course, your emotional meltdowns require a team of therapists and devoted friends to fix, and you should keep those folks on speed dial. Adrenaline is your favorite drug; no surprise Aries Jennifer Garner and Leo Ben Affleck fell in love while co-starring in the action flick Daredevil. Like this Hollywood pair, who refuses to walk the red carpet together on principle, you respect each other's autonomy. Fire signs are by nature independent. You both need to make your own mark on the world, and you don't like anyone stealing your shine. In fact, trouble starts when one of you eclipses the other's big moment or makes the other look foolish in public. Rule number one: don't compete. With your rash tempers, it won't end well. Instead, be each other's biggest fans and champions. As the relationship progresses, put more effort into dressing up, especially if you become parents. Because you're so comfortable together, you could end up bumming around in burp cloths and track suits, dulling the sexy edge that attracted you in the first place.

ARIES + VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The razor's edge between love and hate lives in this common but contradictory coupling. Your attraction feels so fated, it's impossible to resist. Fire-sign Aries loves freedom and risk, but helplessly falls for prudent, parental Virgo, an Earth sign landlocked by practicality and protocol. The tips of Virgo's gossamer wings are singed by Aries' flame—yet, into the fire the Virgin flutters. Both signs have a hero complex, and this relationship centers around fixing each other, or exposing the other to new ways of life. For the first six to twelve months, it's exhilarating. Arduous Aries hand-delivers Virgo's sexual awakening with passion that's tender and all-consuming. Cautious Virgo teaches the impetuous Ram how to slow down, prepare and look both ways before crossing. New facets of your personalities unearth themselves—how lovely! Once the hormone flood is no longer at high tide, however, there are glaring differences to negotiate. Virgo's well-intentioned criticisms feel like a character assault to Aries ("who cares how I fold my T-shirts? I'm still a good person!"). Aries' myopic selfishness makes Virgo feel resentful and unappreciated—especially after hours of listening to the Ram's diatribes with the patience of a paid analyst. At this point, you realize that you've spent way too much time together, and you've lost touch with the outside world. Roll out of bed and reconnect with your individual friends, hobbies and interests. Trust that the other one will be there when you return.

ARIES + LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) ♥♥♥♥

You're opposite signs who can match up well, but you sometimes baffle one another, too. Aries rules the self and Libra rules relationships. Libra is a lover; Aries is a fighter. Your polar extremes can be a great complement if you borrow what the other does best. Rash, temperamental Aries could stand to give others the benefit of the doubt, to look before leaping—something the wise Judge does well. Languid, overly accommodating Libra can learn to speak up, say no, and take action instead of pondering the possible consequences for a year. Although your differences can be irritating, they also make you a well-rounded couple if you play them right. When Aries needs to rant, patient Libra offers uninterrupted listening, capped with sage, sensible feedback. In return, Aries helps Libra overcome a mortal fear of conflict, teaching this sign how to stand up for his rights. As parents, or even business partners, you play the good cop/bad cop routine like seasoned pros. Just be willing to adjust your internal thermostats as needed. Hotheaded Aries will need to dial down the anger, lest all that concentrated emotion throw Libra's scales off balance. Erudite Libra will need to descend from that lofty, cultured perch and take a bold risk. (No, Aries does NOT consider ten years a reasonable time to wait for an engagement ring—and never will.) Compromise is essential for you to find a rhythm.

ARIES + SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Aries' ruler, passionate Mars, also wields minor command over Scorpio (whose main overlord is Pluto). Fierce physical attraction draws your signs together, but it's a game of sexual gunpowder and erotic explosives. Not that either of you is afraid of such things. No sign is as darkly intense as watery Scorpio. When mixed with Aries' concentrated fire-power, you stir up quite the hydroelectric charge. However, this match can only last if Scorpio has evolved from a ground-dwelling, vengeful scorpion into an elevated "eagle" state. Here's the fundamental challenge: Aries takes; withholding Scorpio takes away. When Aries reaches out his grasping hand, Scorpio's first instinct is to jump back, which wounds the sensitive Ram. Aries energy is consuming, which leaves Scorpio weak-kneed but scared. Aries will need to temper the raw desire, or at least mask it to avoid overwhelming Scorpio. Jealous Scorpio will need to stop Google-stalking Aries and hiring private detectives whenever the independent Ram goes out for a beer with friends. One way in which you're alike? You're both hyper-sensitized to abandonment, and may even shun each other in a self-protection paradox: "Go away before you leave me." (This tactic only guarantees another hot reunion tryst.) Selfishness can also be this couple's downfall. Scorpio is the sign that rules other people's resources—his karmic job is to create wealth from another man's pocket. Aries is simply born entitled. In a sense, you both live by the credo "What's mine is mine; what's yours is mine." Who will refill the coffers once you empty them?

ARIES + SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) ♥♥♥♥

Chemistry and simpatico build fast between these two Fire signs, and you find a twin soul in each other. You're both independent explorers, driven by lust, joie de vive and a breathtaking moxie that others mistake for arrogance. That brio and derring-do is the badge of your spiritual kinship—a primal mating call that draws you together. You share a blunt sense of humor, and naturally understand the other's need for space and autonomy (at least at first). Thrilling conversations traipse expansive terrain: philosophy, art, human nature, science, spirituality, dreams. Together, the impossible feels probable, and your natural confidence soars higher. Caution: the view from your rosy lenses can be a bit myopic. Sagittarius is a gambler and Aries is a charging knight—neither thinks far ahead. You'll need crash insurance for the times that your grand schemes don't reach your projections. At moments, you both lapse into overthinking, which can kill the celebratory vibe. Aries also has a greater need to for coddling and personal attention. At times, the Ram may resent competing with Sagittarius' busy career, social schedule and hobbies—and Sagittarius gets impatient with Aries' needy spells. When angered, your burning tempers can raze a national forest to ash. Be careful not to unleash a spiteful spark, for that's all it takes to destroy this treasured landscape.

ARIES + CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Aries is the Alpha in most relationships, but here the Ram meets his match. In the Goat, Aries finds a more seasoned pack leader, and backs into a rare state of obedience. This weighty respect comes from Capricorn's ruler, wise old Saturn, the planet of maturity, authority and command. Capricorn is the zodiac's father sign; Aries is its firstborn child. It's the difference between a king and a knight, a queen and a duchess. Both are noble, but one is clearly the elder. This can be a dealbreaker for Aries in some cases, as too much paternalism makes this independent sign run for freedom. However, it usually works. Although Aries can be a hellish brat, Capricorn is unruffled and even amused by the tantrums, giving Aries space to act out. If you accept your cosmic roles, you can make excellent partners in both love and business. Aries is ruled by warrior Mars, and Capricorn is a four-star general by nature. You both see life as a battlefield to conquer, and with Aries' grit and Cap's determination, there's no goal you can't achieve. Earthy Capricorn excels at structure and planning, and is the terra firm beneath the Ram's restless hooves. Fiery Aries is a daring playmate who amuses, excites and entertains the sober Goat, especially in the bedroom (where Capricorn has a lesser-known lusty side). Aries is a flirt, and this can spark jealousy in traditional Capricorn. Over time, trust and mutual respect abolish the Goat's fears, and you make supportive lifelong partners.

ARIES + AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) ♥♥♥♥

You're laugh-a-minute friends who make a fine comedic duo, but the romance isn't as hearty as your side-splitting guffaws. You're amazed by how quickly the other delivers a hilarious comeback or a clever opinion, and it turns you on. Banter leads you to the bedroom fast, where the sex is playful and experimental (though not heavy on the emotional connection). It's as though you've met your twin; and alas, you may soon feel more like siblings than lovers. After a couple weeks, the Bickersons sideshow routine gets old, especially for Aries, and you run out of things to talk about. While casual Aquarius likes to keep the conversation light, Aries has intense, brooding spells that demand way too much emotional attention. For Aquarius, problems are solved with steely logic or left alone, but Aries is unable to curb obsessive thinking, which drives Aquarius mad. Your styles of affection are different, too. Cool Aquarius gets overwhelmed by the Ram's passion and physicality—there's way too much touching, grabbing and kissing for the airy Aquarian temperament. If you're determined to be together, push yourselves to go beyond platonic borders by traveling, taking classes, even performing on stage together. Closeness breeds more ennui than affection. Cultivate mystery through time apart. Your independent signs need to develop your own lives, then reunite with thrilling tales from the road.

ARIES + PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Aries is the zodiac's first sign, Pisces its last. You're the Alpha and the Omega, the dawn and the sunset. You're as far apart and as close together as two signs can get. Although your differences are vast, you also have a broad expanse of material from which to fashion your relationship. Your polar positions can actually make you a great match. Aries loves to be adored and spoiled, and generous Pisces will give everything in the name of love. In Pisces' worshipful gaze, Aries feels brilliant and boundless, and his insecurities melt away. This is important for the sensitive Ram, whose "wounded soldier" archetype is healed by the Pisces nurse. In this relationship, Aries is free to follow his natural hunting instincts; Pisces prepares a banquet from his conquests. The danger: You both have vivid imaginations, but with two dreamers at the helm of this romance, the ship can veer off course. Aries is a take-charge leader, but needs a strong second mate. Bravado and confidence don't come easy to insecure Pisces, who falls into feigned helplessness under duress. Moody spells are common for your signs, and digging yourselves out of emotional ditches can be a challenge. You'll need a council of advisors to help you manage aspects of daily life—accountants, lawyers, coaches, therapists. Aries can be naturally aggressive, where Pisces is passive or passive-aggressive. You'll need to adapt your communication styles in order to be heard.

The Most Compatible Astrological Signs, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

When it comes to having success in relationships, it’s important to be able to relate to your partner and see eye-to-eye. Compatibility is based on many factors, but looking at the signs that are compatible with your zodiac sign is a fun and easy way to get an idea of whether you'll click or clash with someone on a surface level. The astrological compatibility between zodiac signs could even serve as an indicator for a deeper kind of connection — whether it’s romantic or platonic.

But there's a lot more to both astrology and relationships than zodiac signs alone. Every person has an entirely unique astrological birth chart full of planets and signs that govern all different parts of their lives, which means using astrological compatibility in your love life goes deeper than just comparing sun signs. That said, a simple compatibility check can certainly give you a basic idea of some strengths and weaknesses that you should look out for between your signs.

If you want a cheat sheet to astrological compatibility between zodiac signs, knowing the element and duality of your sign can help. The elements in astrology represent the way we express ourselves and act on things, so we’re often highly compatible with signs who share our same element — as this connection makes it easier to relate to each other and understand each other’s motives. We also tend to be compatible with people who share the same duality as our own sign in astrology, even if they’re of a different element, as signs of the same duality tend to direct their energies in a similar way.

If you find yourself caught up in the Ram's charisma and disarming charm, it's natural to wonder if you're a best match for Aries. When examining best love matches, companion fire signs of Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries are most compatible with Aries. Still, it's the complimentary air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius that tend to be the best long-term love matches.

Sagittarius and Aries

A Sagittarius and Aries match has hot love affair potential. The chemistry between them is awesome, and it's safe to say that the time they spend together will never be boring.

Related Articles

A Fun Couple

These two can be a fun couple. Both Sagittarius and Aries are energetic, crave adventure, always up for a good time. As a couple, they will always be busy and on the go. Additionally, they're interested in the same things, bored by the same things, and fascinated with each other. Even as lovers, they'll be best buddies who'll enjoy planning their next adventure or hitting the gym together.

Sexual Passion

Both Aries and Sagittarius have healthy libidos and are uninhibited, so their sex life will never be dull. Together they will engage in sexual exploration, risqué encounters, and lots of fun between the sheets.

Marriage Potential

While an Aries and a Sagittarius can be friends or lovers extraordinaire, it will be hard for an Aries and Sagittarius to commit to walking done the aisle. Neither is a homebody, and both are independent with roving eyes and self-centered goals. Aries is quick to commit to the relationship and can quickly move on when they realize that Sagittarius is a bit commitment-phobic.

The Challenge

Can this relationship last long-term? Sure, if each sacrifices some of their personal freedoms for the relationship. However, if Aries and Sagittarius should make it to the alter, they are likely to have many wonderful stories to tell their grandchildren. And also a few stories they won't be able to share with anyone.

Leo and Aries

Aries and Leo are both creative and fun individuals with lively spirits. Leo is a social diva, Aries is a gadabout, both love the great outdoors and are enthusiastic about life. Aries enjoys the chase and is quick to commit, and Leo loves the attention and has patience and staying power.

A Showy Couple

Together, an Aries and Leo have a tremendous zest for life. As a couple, they're affectionate, loyal, big-hearted, passionate, and showy. Their life together will be filled with playful nights out on the town, lots of parties and celebrations with friends. However, there will also be plenty of highs and lows.

Sexual Passion

Aries and Leo are both physically ardent and sexy lovers, so their lovemaking will be sizzling hot and never short on passion and play. Aries brings the initiative, Leo adds the romance, and both are all about foreplay, role play and various types of sexual adventures.

Marriage Potential

Of the fire signs, Leo is an Aries' best bet for a long-lasting relationship. Loyalty and honesty are two of the qualities they admire in each other, and both celebrate love to the fullest. Of course, theirs will be marriage filled with active competition, and there will be fights. But Aries enjoys the exchange, and Leo wants the marriage to last.

The Challenge

Both Aries and Leo are born leaders who have strong wills. The greatest challenge they will face in their relationship will be a fight for dominance. This means they will have to work out a compromise as to who's the boss and when. The secret for long-lasting is for each to do what they do best, share leadership, and fight nicely.

Aries and Aries

No zodiac couple can fall in and out of love as quickly and furiously as an Aries and Aries. There's an attraction that's sudden, hot, and dynamic, but it's often too hot and confrontational to handle. Which means the relationship can fizzle out as quickly as it began.

An Active Couple

As two competitive and passionate people who love to try new things, an Aries/Aries couple can share many adventurous moments. Due to their physical nature, they can enjoy all sorts of physical activities together, from walks to sports, and other types of physical challenges. But can two competitors forge a loving relationship?

Sexual Passion

It's easy for these two to take off their clothes and jump in bed, but even when it comes to sex, there may be problems due to their shared selfish "me first" attitudes. Their mutual focus on self can create issues that lead to sexual frustrations unless or until both to learn to indulge the other's sexual needs and desires.

Marriage Potential

Two Aries definitely enjoy the chase and the challenge they present to one another, but they both also lack follow-through, which can make for a relationship that's fun while it lasts rather than a lifetime commitment. The major problem in an Aries/Aries coupling is that both individuals are self-centered, selfish, independent, easily bored, and quick to move on. Which certainly does not bode well for marriage.

The Challenge

For an Aries/Aries relationship to work, a deliberate change of attitude is necessary to reverse the childishness and selfishness that's inherent in both. It won't be easy, but they must learn the art of give and take.

The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius

While two fire signs can be great friends or red hot lovers, together they can also create an unstoppable inferno of the wrong kind. Often a more suitable match for longer-lasting relationships would be an air sign. Fire and air have to ability to cheer to each other on and bring out the best in one another.

  • Aries' fire and passion can help bring an air person's ideas and concepts to life and inspire them to get out of their heads and take action.

Gemini and Aries

An Aries and Gemini can create a volatile and passionate relationship. There's a natural attraction that draws them to one another and once hooked up an Aries can't live without Gemini any more than fire can survive without air. So this can be an ideal relationship.

  • Both like to flirt and love their freedom.
  • Gemini enjoys change and romance as long as life is creative and exciting.
  • Aries is the person who can complete a Gemini's wildest fantasies and do so with great finesse and extravagance.
  • Gemini will enjoy Aries's tests of loyalty and may pull a few surprises that shake things up and keeps the Aries person fascinated and on their toes.

Libra and Aries

As opposites, Aries and Libra are attracted to one another. It's the "tension of the opposites" that can produce the passion that deepens, enlivens, and sustains their relationship. While a long term relationship will take work, this combination has marriage potential.

  • Aries brings passion and drama, and Libra provides romance.
  • Aries is appreciative of Libra's social skills, and Libra appreciates Aries's penchant for decisive actions.
  • Aries likes being in charge. Libra has no problem letting Aries take the lead.

Aquarius and Aries

An Aries is attracted to an Aquarian's uninhibited, independent and freethinking approach to life, while an Aquarian is attracted to an Aries' independent, fun, and spontaneous nature. Theirs may be a unique relationship, but it will never be boring.

  • Both are experimental and place a high value on their independence.
  • Each willingly gives the other all the freedom they need.
  • Both look toward the future optimistically rather than dwelling on the past.

There's a lot to learn about what it means to be an Aries. (Like, did you know they're really competitive?)


Aries' Core Traits

Before we talk about Aries' compatibility with other signs, you should know a little about what it means to be born under the sign of Aries.

As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries spans the days from March 21 to April 19. Aries are determined, sociable, confident, passionate, and highly motivated. This fire sign is also a cardinal sign, ruled by the red planet, Mars, which is named for the Roman god of War.

Like their symbol, the ram, Aries dive with reckless abandon into any new experience, challenging situation, competition, or conflict. This confidence and passion draws others to them and gives them command of groups of friends, teammates, or coworkers.

On the flip side, Aries' bullheaded ways tend to leave little time and space for working through the details, which means they sometimes act before they think.

Despite their susceptibility to angry outbursts when things don't go their way and determination to the point of foolishness, Aries make fantastic companions for those who are in search of spontaneity, passion, individuality, and relentless optimism.

But trust us: there's a lot more to learn about what makes an Aries tick. Make sure you check out our complete guide to Aries' traits, talents, and personalities here.



Aries' outgoing nature and adventurousness can make them really popular. But they tend to look for some pretty specific things in a friend or partner, like intelligence, a love of life, and the ability to keep focused.


What Makes a Good Match for Aries?

The best way to identify an Aries' best match is by looking at the core character traits that an Aries finds attractive in a partner. If you're wondering, "Who are Aries compatible with," read on to learn more!


Trait 1: Passion

Aries love an equal partner who approaches most things in life with plenty of passion, so star signs who exhibit a similar joie de vivre are usually great matches for an Aries.

Because Aries' passionate nature can strike some as a bit intense, Aries feel safe and understood in relationships with those who can match their passionate intensity. When an Aries' passion is met with warm-heartedness and goodwill, the sparks can really fly.


Trait 2: Intellectualism

While Aries aren't particularly known for intellectualism themselves, this is a trait they tend to value in a romantic partner. Aries love encountering new ideas, so star signs who possess a more intellectual nature can be fascinating to Aries. They may see a partner's intellectualism as a wellspring of new adventures and possibilities, which can keep an Aries intrigued for the long haul.

Being with a partner who's more of a thinker can also keep Aries in check when their impulsivity gets out of control. Romantic partners who can show Aries a variety of logical options or suggest alternative choices can help keep them on track and out of trouble.


Trait 3: Openness

Aries are known for their openness and honesty, and they love to see these traits reciprocated in a romantic relationship. Aries struggle to understand people who are passive, secretive, or unclear about their needs and desires. That's why this star sign is drawn to others who are willing to put what they're thinking and feeling out in the open.

While Aries crave transparency in romantic relationships, they want to get straight to the point while they're baring their souls. Aries appreciate a partner who doesn't mince words, and will repay a romantic partner's clarity in kind. There's no beating around the bush for these passionate people!



Do you love an adventure? Then you might be a good partner for an Aries.


Trait 4: Adventurousness

Aries seek an adventure partner in their romantic relationships. People who are out there achieving, competing, and trying new things are the ones who will catch an Aries' eye.

People who have high adrenaline hobbies—like motor racing or mountain climbing—can be a solid match for an Aries. Similarly, a teammate or coworker who Aries always seems to be competing with for the top spot could actually make a harmonious match. In other words, people who have just as strong of a drive to achieve and experience new things as Aries do will be able to keep pace with them!


Trait 5: An Eye for Detail

Aries possess a strong determination to achieve their goals. While they have the passion and drive to go after their hearts' desires, Aries can sometimes overlook important details that can make or break their success. That's why a partner who has an eye for detail can be a huge benefit to a bullheaded Aries.

Keep in mind that partners who are too focused on minute details can get on Aries' nerves. But a partner who can help Aries see the big picture without bogging them down is a perfect match!



Aries have a strong personality, so a bad match can make both people miserable. Here's what Aries should avoid in a friend or partner!


What Makes a Bad Match for Aries?

Just as there are traits that are most ideal for an Aries' best match to possess, there are traits that just won't jive with an Aries' high intensity personality. Here are the things Aries don't want in a partner!


Trait 1: Obsession With Structure

Aries live for adventure, thrills, and spontaneity. They seek out new experiences, which means they also require a certain degree of flexibility in order to thrive.

The bane to Aries' thrill-seeking ways? Obsession with structure. Romantic partners whose lives must adhere to strict plans, rigid schedules, and tightly structured day-to-day routines can frustrate an Aries and hamper their desire to go with the flow. Having to constantly suppress their zest for living in the moment can bring out Aries' infamous temper, so a partner who's obsessed with living a highly structured life isn't a good match for Aries.


Trait 2: Sensitivity

If you know an Aries, you're familiar with their commitment to being straightforward, open, and honest. You probably also know that, while they almost always mean well, Aries' truth-speaking can sometimes cause hurt feelings. An Aries isn't necessarily going to tiptoe around the feelings of their more sensitive friends!

When a friend, family member, or partner responds to Aries' directness with tears or broodiness, Aries tends to get flustered and withdraw. This fire sign appreciates people who are thick-skinned and respond to Aries' brutal honesty with strength. An Aries is prepared to take what they dish out, responding positively to a partner's pushback or directness. What an Aries doesn't like is having to compromise their honesty and directness to tiptoe around another person's feelings.


Trait 3: Inactivity

Aries life motto is "on the go," so romantic partners who are living the homebody life don't mesh well with this star sign. Aries wants to be on the move and pursuing the next activity, challenge, or competition. In romantic relationships, Aries loves being with a partner who is right there with them chasing after the next big thrill. That's why people who would self-diagnose as a couch potato would be better off avoiding romantic relationships with Aries.


Trait 4: Slow Pace

Similar to Aries' intolerance for inactivity is their dislike for a slow pace. Some star signs like to approach their lives methodically or cautiously. These values lead those who hold them to living life at a slower pace, rejecting impulsive decision-making. Since an Aries wants to live life in the fast lane, they may feel held back by partners who want to stop and smell the roses at every turn.


Trait 5: Prudishness

Aries isn't afraid to be who they are in all aspects of a romantic relationship, which works best with a partner who also enjoys openness. Aries can tend to feel misled or misunderstood around people who are more private or closed off.

Additionally, more modest types may not feel comfortable moving at the pace set by Aries' uninhibited passion, which can extinguish the fires of love in a romantic relationship with Aries. People who are just as comfortable in their skin and in their feelings as Aries make a better match for this star sign.

Who Is Aries Most Compatible With? An Aries Compatibility Chart

Every sign in the zodiac has different strengths and weaknesses when paired with Aries in a romantic relationship. Our list below breaks down Aries' compatible signs from low, to medium, to high in terms of overall compatibility, compatibility for a passionate romantic relationship, and compatibility as communicators:

Sign Pairing of Aries with:LoveFriendshipCommunicationOverall Compatibility


We'll explain Aries' compatible signs in more depth below!



Aries gets along with Geminis, Leos, and Sagittarians like...well, peanut butter and jelly!


High Aries Compatibility: Gemini, Leo, and Sagittarius

There are three star signs with whom Aries' compatibility naturally soars: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius. These pairings are most likely to result in relationships that are harmonious, passionate, and built to last.


Aries and Gemini

Gemini is the first star sign that has high compatibility with Aries. When Aries and Gemini get together, their relationship is built on friendship, intellectual chemistry, and relentless pursuit of a good time. It's important for an Aries and Gemini pairing to keep each other in check when the shared traits that they adore in each other get out of hand . . . like impetuousness or stubbornness.

The good news is that Gemini's endless energy is a perfect match for Aries' adventurous spirit! Remaining active, channelling their energy into good causes, and pacing themselves can keep an Aries-Gemini relationship on the right track instead of snuffing out at the first sign of conflict.


Aries and Leo

Leo and Aries are both fire signs, so it makes sense that the combo of their burning passion and high-achieving natures are a recipe for success. These bold individuals make an even bolder duo, juggling an array of responsibilities and interests that stimulate their insatiable desire for physical and intellectual activity.

In this whirlwind of energy, it's common to see Aries-Leo couples respecting each others' independence. However, since both star signs crave the spotlight, it's important to make an effort to celebrate each other's individual victories and avoid competing. Cheer each other on and be patient with each other's haphazard attempts to express emotions, and a Leo-Aries relationship can be one for the ages.


Aries and Sagittarius

Last is Sagittarius and Aries, a classic case of birds of a feather. Aries and Sagittarius can form a quick bond based on their natural independence, desire to explore, and spunkiness. These two respect each other's need for autonomy, and they experience a thrilling connection that runs on both partners' never ending thirst for new knowledge and ideas.

A Sag and Aries pairing must watch out for unwieldy tempers, however, and work together to overcome their shared tendency to overlook potential consequences before charging into situations. When at their best, these two Fire signs share a warm rapport and are confident in love.



While an Aries definitely can get along with these signs, their relationships may take more work.


Medium Aries Compatibility: Aries, Taurus, Libra, and Aquarius

There are four star signs with whom Aries' compatibility can go either way, depending on how both parties in the relationship choose to handle their strengths and weaknesses. These star signs are Aries, Taurus, Libra, and Aquarius.


Aries and Aries

Since Aries are searching for an SO who mirrors their passion and determination, it should come as no surprise that Aries can sometimes match well with fellow Aries. Two Aries can find intense passion in a physical relationship, but they may err on the side of selfishness and disregard the other's needs when they arise.

In terms of communication, an Aries couple will value their mutual willingness to tell it like it is, but their stubbornness can cause frequent conflict if their opinions clash. In other words, Aries' shared values and communication styles can set the foundation for a healthy relationship...but if both Aries frequently exhibit their weaker qualities, these relationships can take a turn for the worse.


Aries and Taurus

When Taurus pairs with Aries, their relationship can be characterized by depth and complexity. Both signs find intense connection through physical intimacy, but Tauruses like more emotional connection in their relationships. This requires detailed and often heavy conversations that may frustrate Aries.

In terms of communication, Taurus tends to respond to Aries' stubbornness by going stoic and withdrawing to hide their sensitivity. Nevertheless, Aries and Taurus both value strong verbal and physical strength, and they tend to enjoy these qualities in each other. Ultimately, Aries and Taurus can experience a fulfilling relationship when both parties work hard to address their individual issues and find the patience to listen to each other.


Aries and Libra

A Libra/Aries relationship has a strong potential for longevity when both partners set aside their insecurities and strive to understand each other. Libras and Aries feel a very strong physical attraction, but they must work hard to connect through genuine emotion and respect of each other's boundaries.

Communication can be exhausting between these two star signs, with both a Libra and an Aries trying to make up for the other's weaknesses. When Aries and Libras are at their best, they form an unbreakable bond, but both parties have to learn from each other's values and work on their own self-esteem.


Aries and Aquarius

These two signs communicate well and trust each other, but they may experience stress when it comes to physical intimacy. Both signs bring a lot of energy to a physical relationship, but their mutual struggle to show their emotions in intimate moments can leave both partners feeling unloved.

Despite these challenges, Aries and Aquarius can have a healthy relationship in other ways, like their shared excitement for new adventures and enthusiasm for sharing and discussing new ideas. While this can be a pairing that lacks emotional tenderness when the two partners are not in tune, Aries and Aquarius can form passionate relationships built on mutual trust and shared interests.



The core traits of Aries and these zodiac signs tend to conflict, which can make their relationships a little rocky!


Low Aries Compatibility: Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo, and Scorpio

We'll start by briefly explaining why Aries are typically considered to have low overall compatibility with these signs: Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo, and Scorpio.


Aries and Cancer

In a relationship between Aries and Cancer, both parties typically have to tiptoe around each other. Cancers often require gentleness and tenderness in romantic relationships--qualities that don't come naturally to Aries. Aries and Cancer may also struggle to build trust because of Cancer's difficulty understanding Aries bold communication style, which Cancers may see as overly aggressive.

Ultimately, both Aries and Cancer are highly emotional, but in completely opposite ways. That makes it difficult for these two signs to find common ground, productive communication strategies, and harmony.


Aries and Capricorn

Capricorns and Aries find most of their issues in regard to physical intimacy. The clash between Capricorn's Saturn and Aries' Mars can result in both parties feeling incapable of understanding and fulfilling the other's desires. An Aries' boldness can make a methodical Capricorn feel overwhelmed!

In terms of communication, Capricorns value rationality and can tend to disregard Aries' ideas because they seem rash. Aries may find Capricorn's insistence that the people in their lives be constantly industrious to be annoying and boring. This pairing can lead to ongoing conflict that is made worse by stubbornness in both parties.


Aries and Pisces

While Pisces and Aries can balance out some of each others' strengths and weaknesses, these two signs have low compatibility for physical intimacy. As a water and a fire sign, that makes sense! Pisces are the poets of the zodiac and tend to be introspective and quiet, which means that Pisces and Aries can struggle to communicate effectively about their desires.

Aries may also find Pisces' changing emotions and susceptibility to disappointment to be too complicated. Pisces and Aries share a mutual difficulty with opening up and building trust, leading to relationships that struggle to last.


Aries and Virgo

When Virgo and Aries pair up, many challenges can arise. Virgos require lots of patience, attention, and verbal communication, which is frustrating for the always-ready-to-dive-in Aries. Because Aries likes to live in a bit of a whirlwind of chaos, and Virgo lives for order and intentional understanding, a pairing between these two can lend itself to fights about the same recurring issues.

A Virgo also tends to be more interested in stability and order than a sometimes foolhardy Aries. Without Virgo allowing Aries their freedom, and Aries making an effort to bring some order to their life, a Virgo-Aries pairing will struggle to succeed.


Aries and Scorpio

Scorpio and Aries tend to be opposites in terms of their desires for physical intimacy, and often express those desires in ways that clash. Scorpio often overcomplicates things, while Aries strives to simplify communication, emotional connection, and physical intimacy.

Aries may also find Scorpio's exhaustive communication style over-the-top and unnecessary, and Scorpio might perceive Aries resistance to talking things out as shallowness. Even though Scorpios' and Aries' intentions are good, they're often talking at cross purposes...which leads to fights and hard feelings.




The Big Takeaways for Aries

While the signs of the zodiac can help us learn more about ourselves and others, it's important to interpret analysis of Aries compatibility in relationships in healthy ways. Now that you know about Aries' compatible signs based on analysis of astrology, keep in mind these four key takeaways for Aries zodiac sign compatibility.


#1: You're Not Doomed to Fail

Having "low" or "medium" compatibility based on a person's star sign doesn't mean relationships between Aries and those signs are doomed to fail: it just means those pairings may need to put in the effort to make their relationship work!


#2: Embrace Your Weaknesses

Being aware of and willing to admit to and address your weaknesses can help create harmony in relationships between Aries and other signs that they're known for low or medium compatibility with.


#3: Good Astrological Matches Don't Always Work

Having "high" compatibility doesn't mean relationships will automatically work out or be easy with those star signs: it just means that there is lots of potential for an amazing relationship between your personalities.


#4: Know What You Need

Just because you're "supposed" to like a certain type of person based on your zodiac sign doesn't mean you will. Your lived experiences, culture, and personal desires can change the way you approach relationships. Our best advice? Know the core traits you're looking for--and what your core traits are--and place more stock in those that you do in what sign a person is!

Overall, it's important for Aries to remember that you and your partner get to decide whether a relationship can work. Even though your star sign might tell the story of some of your quintessential traits in romantic relationships, you're more than your horoscope, and it's important to develop the ability to be more than your sign when relating to someone you care about.

The air signs are also a good match, with the exception of Aquarius, Stellas says. “Aquarius is a little bit distant for Aries,” she explains, though it can work for a fling. Gemini and Libra, however, are a better fit. Aries’ leadership qualities and Gemini’s changeability make for a sexually-charged match, while Libra and Aries are an opposites-attract situation, which could lead to conflict — or a lot of passion.

The earth signs are divided. “Virgo rarely works out because they’re too detail-oriented” for Aries, Stellas says. Capricorn is a better fit, but Capricorns and Aries approach privacy in different ways, and that could lead to conflict. And Taurus is a good fit for a fling, but Aries’ fast pace and Taurus’ slow one are incompatible in the long run.

Considering that Aries is a fire sign, it makes sense that water signs would be not a good match. Of the three water signs, Cancer is a particularly bad match, Stellas says. There's a lot of aggressive tension between the two signs. Meanwhile, Piscean energy is a little too chill for Aries, though a short fling can be fun. Scorpio’s fearlessness when it comes to sex means that they could have amazingly creative (and maybe kinky) sex with Aries, but long-lasting relationships aren’t in the stars. “They both have a great deal of power, but express it in different ways,” Stellas explains. “Aries has this kind of childlike glee, and Scorpio has this brooding intensity. Between the sheets, it’s intense, but it usually doesn’t last for a long time, romance-wise.”

Before you change your dating app bio, though, keep a few things in mind: two people with the exact same birth chart can still have different personalities (there are plenty of twins who are total opposites, after all). And even if you focus only on astrology, your sun sign (your “main” sign, the one decided by your date of birth) doesn’t give the whole picture when it comes to compatibility. Instead, you should look at your chart as a whole, paying special attention to your moon sign and the placement of Venus and Mars. For example, even though Aries and Cancer aren’t generally compatible, an Aries with a Cancer moon might have an amazing connection with a Cancer.

“It’s a balancing act in their own personality, as well as with the other person,” Stellas explains. “That’s what’s so fascinating about astrology, because it shows how we try to come to wholeness with all of the elements our chart.”


Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and is one powerful force of nature. Not only is this Ram admired for their power, but they are also known to have a dominating, Type-A personality.

People with this Sun sign are born between March 20 and April 19. The Aries Fire sign is a passionate leader who truly values their independence and freedom, and are often difficult to keep up with.

Aries Compatibility: Overview

Aries is ruled by Mars, so they not only crave but need to experience the thrill of the chase. They need goals to reach and dreams to pursue.

A partner who enjoys being spontaneous and coming up with last-minute plans is an ideal love match. Aries prefers to be with someone who is action-oriented and doesn’t overthink. And even though this zodiac sign is a leader, they enjoy romance and chivalry.

Though expressing emotions doesn't come naturally to them, they still want to know they are appreciated and valued.

What makes a good or bad match for Aries?

Aries are so independent that anyone who wants to get close to them must prove they are well worth the effort first. They won’t stand for anyone who holds them back or foolishly tries telling them what to do.

RELATED: What Does The Aries Symbol & Glyph Mean?

At the same time, Aries sometimes finds it comforting to have a partner along for the ride. They need someone who encourages and supports their wild ideas and fierce passions, and will also temper their rough edges.

Sometimes Aries get so hyper-focused on their own directions that they require someone strong enough to be their anchor. A good match is someone who brings stability to their life without making them feel trapped; someone who encourages them to push through barriers without letting them hurt themselves in the process.

Aries Compatibility With Each Of The 12 Zodiac Signs

Aries and Aries

Love: Two Aries together, at once, in the same room?

Aries and Aries relationships are unstoppable as long as both partners work towards the same goal. The minute they don’t see eye-to-eye on anything, the battle of wills begins.

Sex: Aries tends to be selfish in the bedroom, meaning there could be an imbalance in the struggle for power and achieving pleasure. Still, satisfaction is a strong possibility if there is a deeper connection formed before intimacy.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Aries are devoted in their own way and are ready to go to war for their ideals.

An Aries and Aries romance is sometimes destructive, often ground-breaking, and never, ever dull. A long-term relationship or even marriage is built to last if both form a deep bond with strong communication and adventure.

Aries and Taurus

Love: At first, Aries might get frustrated with Taurus’ stubbornness. And, quite frankly, Taurus finds Aries’ uncontrollable energy to be a little scary.

When they learn to appreciate these aspects of each other, though, they’ll realize how well their different energies complement each other.

Sex: While Taurus’ main goal is satisfying themselves and their partner, Aries lacks that same emotion and passion. Each sign is sensual in their own way, but to have a mind-blowing experience, both Taurus and Aries need to lower their high expectations.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Taurus holds down the fort and provides direction, while Aries goes out there and makes things happen. A relationship can be challenging for these two, but can be fulfilling if they listen to each other.

Aries and Gemini

Love: An Aries and Gemini couple is great company for a fun night on the town; in private, however, they’re never quite sure how to handle the energy they generate between them.

Gemini, who wants to please people and fits in well with any group, is easily flustered by Aries’ blunt, outspoken style.

Sex: Aries and Gemini are two very sexually compatible signs, mostly due to their shared curiosity. Aries may become impatient with Gemini, who thrives on mental stimulation during sex, but they complement each other since neither need an emotional component in bed.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Gemini is attracted to Aries’ powerful personality, and while Aries finds Gemini charming at first, they’ll quickly get tired of their need for constant companionship.

Still, both signs value their independence, and if they can overcome their trust issues, their love of trying new, exciting things will keep them together. Aries craves independence and so does Gemini.

Aries and Cancer

Love: At first, the Aries and Cancer couple seems totally mismatched — Aries is loud and aggressive, while Cancer is reserved and quiet.

In public, people might assume that Aries loves calling all the shots. In private, though, Cancer’s own strong spiritual core comes into play, and is easily a match for Aries’ bluster.

Sex: Aries prefers an unemotional and to-the-point experience in bed, while Cancer desires something gentle and deep. This can cause issues if they don’t have, at minimum, an attraction to one another.

But if the chemistry is strong, they can share something extraordinary.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: A relationship between Fire signs and Water signs requires hard work on both ends, all in an effort to understand each other. As long as they can respect each other's needs, natures, and quirks, Aries and Cancer do well together, and find something unique in their relationship.

RELATED: 3 Strange Facts & Common Misconceptions About Aries You Should Know (Even If You Don't Believe In Astrology)

Aries and Leo

Love: Aries and Leo together are a power struggle in the making.

These two Fire signs are both accustomed to bending reality their own way. Leo wants attention, while Aries tends to be aloof. Aries needs to get away from the crowd, while Leo wants to stay at the party.

Sex: The chemistry between these signs is something that never fades, no matter how much time has passed.

Each wants to impress the other during sex, meaning they will pull out all the stops and ideas. If they can look past the need to be competitive, their sex life will be more than fulfilling.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: A fiery and challenging relationship may not actually be something negative for these two. If they have a deep love for each other, despite the lack of romance, and accept one another doing their own thing, there’s a chance of a relationship full of adventure, fun, and energy.

Aries and Virgo

Love: Aries and Virgo aren’t going to put up with each other for long.

Aries is loud, messy, and impulsive; Virgo complains a lot, overthinks everything, and is quick to point out mistakes. The only thing they are likely to agree on is that trying to connect was a bad idea.

Sex:Earth sign Virgo and Fire sign Aries have in common their desire to impress and please, but Aries could end up offending Virgo with their inconsiderate approach. Virgo won’t like Aries trying to push things along quickly, and will require a step back to slow down.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: An Aries and Virgo couple isn’t always meant to last, especially since they tend to bring out the worst in each other.

Virgos are sensitive and Aries just aren’t, which can lead to fighting, unresolved conflict, and resentment. They would be better off going their separate ways before somebody gets hurt.

Aries and Libra

Love: These two go together quite well despite their differences.

Libra brings out Aries’ sensitive side, while Aries pushes Libra along in achieving their goals. They may run into issues with Aries’ impulsive tendencies and Libra’s indecisiveness, but each is competitive and complement each other in this way.

Sex: The sexual energy here is undeniable — Aries’ ruling planet is Mars and Libra’s is Venus, making for a compatible sexual relationship. Libra enjoys that Aries takes control and asserts dominance, and Aries appreciates Libra’s selflessness. 

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Aries’ boldness counteracts Libra’s indecisiveness, while Libra’s compassion and patience are exactly the tempering force that Aries needs to calm down without feeling controlled.

Libra, one of three Air signs, fuels Aries’ fire, and Aries helps get Libra motivated to take action.

Aries and Scorpio

Love: Brute-force Aries and secretive, mysterious Scorpio might seem like they’re from other planets, but there’s an underlying passion between them that kindles a fire neither probably expected. Both signs are loyal, but their arguing and misunderstanding can come between them.

Sex: Scorpio is the most sexual zodiac sign in astrology, so they are a match in bed. However, they may run into problems.

Aries prefers sex that is quick and non-emotional, while Scorpio desires passion and depth. If both signs can learn to be more open and find a balance, there’s a good chance of success.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: The Aries and Scorpio couple always find something new to appreciate about each other, themselves, and the world, in general.

There will be arguments — you'd better believe it — but there’s also plenty of mutual respect. These two are fiercely devoted to their relationship and their adventures.

Aries and Sagittarius

Love: Aries and Sagittarius both love to push boundaries and explore new territory. However, they both tend to be loners.

Sagittarius never stays in one place for long, and Aries hates feeling trapped, so it might be difficult for them to stay together long enough to develop a romantic commitment.

Sex: What happens when you have two Fire signs in bed? Prepare for a deep, passionate and explosive connection.

Since they are on the same emotional level, sparks will fly, particularly in how they approach sex: Aries is all about action, and Sagittarius doesn’t mind taking a back seat.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Aries and Sagittarius have the shared qualities of being adventurous and impulsive, and can have a relationship free of boredom. Neither is put off by sensitivity, and has an optimistic view of the world.

They each have uplifting energy that will keep them together over time, especially since they have so much in common.

Aries and Capricorn

Love: An Aries and Capricorn together simply is unlikely to work.

Hard-working Capricorn sees Aries as foolish and impulsive, while Aries is easily bored with Capricorn’s serious, practical nature. While both value success, Aries’ risk-taking behavior is completely opposite Capricorn’s tendency to overthink.

Sex: Sexual compatibility between these two is low. Aries wants to push things along in the bedroom, while Capricorn takes some time to be vulnerable and open up intimately. Even if they are deeply attracted to each other, they just don’t see eye to eye.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Capricorn is looking for commitment and partnership on all levels, while Aries can’t promise anything.

Sex: Though sex between these two signs can be exciting, they first need to develop a strong level of trust. Aries is insatiable, and Aquarius may struggle to keep up. Things can become chaotic when their energies meet, but since Aries is go-go-go and Aquarius enjoys new ideas, a sexual experience is fun.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Aries is unique enough to hold Aquarius’ interest, and Aquarius’ free spirit gives Aries plenty of room to do their thing.

Issues can arise due to their shared lack of tender care and emotion, but physical touch can open the door to so much more. And when they work together, they can accomplish miracles.

Aries and Pisces

Love: If there’s one thing Aries needs, it’s someone like Pisces who can teach them to pay attention to their emotions and intuition. Pisces, on the other hand, will be amazed at how Aries forces ideas and dreams to become reality.

But love compatibility between them is low, especially because of their drastically different personalities.

Sex: Pisces and Aries are on two different wavelengths sexually. Pisces wants an emotional and deep experience full of pleasure for both parties, while Aries doesn’t care for warmth like this. Neither understands the other’s needs, and have trouble forming a true connection.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: The Aries and Pisces couple might have a hard time at first because they experience reality itself from such different perspectives. There’s a high chance of misunderstandings and hurt feelings.

But if Aries can be patient and settle down, and Pisces can be brave and take risks, these two can have a lasting relationship.

Who is an Aries compatible with?

The best matches for Aries include Libra, Leo, Sagittarius and — believe it or not — Aries!

Libra enjoys Aries’ fiery behavior and appreciates how well Aries expresses themselves, which is where Libra can improve themselves; Libras tend to be a bit reserved and want these qualities in a partner.

Leo is independent and open, so these qualities are a great complement to Aries’ needs. Both are also fiercely loyal leaders and feed off the competition.

Sagittarius matches Aries on every level, and their shared love of adventure brings them closer every minute. Neither wants to rush into a commitment, and find balance in intellect and movement.

Aries meets their ideal match in themselves, since this zodiac sign feeds their commonalities of independence and impulsivity. Two Aries together means mutual freedom and expression.

What is the soulmate for Aries?

Leo and Aries can have a soulmate-level relationship for many reasons.

Both are Fire signs, meaning they are ambitious, intense and spontaneous. Not only are their personalities similar, but they are evenly matched in communication, trust, and passion. They have a deep understanding of each other and a connection other signs aspire to.

What signs do Aries not get along with?

Not everyone can handle Aries’ strong personality, and struggle to stick around for the long haul. Aries is least compatible with Taurus, Cancer and Pisces.

Taurus has quite the opposite personality to Aries, and the two bump heads constantly. The biggest issues are Taurus’ refusal to move at Aries’ fast pace, their stubbornness, and Aries’ demanding and bossy personality.

Cancer is highly emotional, and Aries has a more direct approach to life. Romance will fail to thrive due to Aries’ insensitivity and cravings for adventure, since Cancer is easily offended and wants to build their life around the home.

Pisces is a Water sign that is extremely sensitive and vulnerable, but Aries is overly critical and can destroy Pisces’ self-esteem. There are just too many hurt feelings for any kind of match.

Is Aries a good match for Aries?

Two Aries together are a great match!

Aries is direct, honest, optimistic, energetic, and independent, and with a personality like this, they make each other feel safe and understood. Aries needs someone who can build them up, encourage them to stay motivated, and go on adventures together.

With astrology, compatibility is more than just Sun signs; you can’t rely on only a horoscope or general personality traits. To get a deeper understanding of your own compatible matches, it’s important to not only focus on your Sun sign, but where your other planets are placed.

There are exceptions to which zodiac signs you match with, so a full natal chart or astrology reading, which includes your Rising sign, Moon sign and other planetary signs, can provide the full picture.

Love & Marriage Compatibility for Aries: Find out who's the best match for Aries

1) Aries - Aries
Ganesha says Aries love and marriage compatibility with another Aries makes a great pair because they share a common thinking and have common purviews on everything. Their relationship hardly gets affected by the outer atmosphere. Personality traits of both the partners are quite similar and this makes it easier to understand each other. Communication between the both stays crystal clear and everything goes well with consistency. Their physical relationship gets a little off track after a while but they can easily bring back the charm soon. In short, their love and marriage compatibility can be said to lay between 89% to 95%.
2) Aries - Taurus
Ganesha says Aries and Taurus both are fire signs and hence it shares few common traits in their personality but Aries is an easy-going person while Taurus cares too much and is over-thinker and thus harms the love and marriage compatibility of the both. Taurus always makes a trustworthy partner and same goes with Aries and this makes them a compatible pair. Their physical relationship also goes great through all the stages of their relationship. Keeping a few secrets from each other can become the reason for stress in their relationship. Aries Taurus' relationship becomes strained after marriage. Their love and marriage compatibility scores of these pairs stand somewhere around 75%.
3) Aries – Gemini
Ganesha says Aries and Gemini share a medium love and marriage compatibility with each other. Their communication techniques are so much dependent on their mood and as both the signs are a little moody, it becomes difficult to stay consistent when it comes to love and romance. Love and marriage compatibility of these signs is perfectly fine if they can accept each other’s flaws. Marriage stays perfect for them as both the signs have a tendency to let go easily. Love and romance stand at the centre of their mind but their professional fronts make a mess in their relationship. Expectations from each other stays higher in these signs and this becomes the reason for their medium love and marriage compatibility despite being so loving.
4) Aries – Cancer
Seventh house of Aries stays quite affected by Venus in Jupiter and this makes this sign more romantically and maritally compatible. Love for these signs is like an art as both the partners seek growth in relationship. Aries are always on board to try something new and explore while Cancer is silent and grounding partner but these opposite traits maintain good balance in their relationship. Their love and marriage compatibility stays high for a longer run. Physical relationships bind these partners closer but their emotional support for each other always stays on the top. Love and romance stay in a good place for them but too much of age gap between both partners can surely affect relationships.
5) Aries – Leo
Because Leo and Aries are both fire signs, it's no disbelief that the combination of their clear conscious and tall personalities is a winning combination for love and marriage. These two fearless people create an even more fearless partnership, which balances a set of duties and hobbies that feed their physical and psychological energy. It's typical to observe Aries-Leo partners supporting each other's autonomy amid this maelstrom of activity. However, because both signs desire attention, it's crucial to work together to recognize one another's unique achievements rather than vying. Encourage one another and be tolerant with one another's imperfect efforts at expressing feelings.
6) Aries – Virgo
When both partners put their worries away and try to comprehend one another, a Virgo -Aries romance and marriage has a good chance of lasting. A strong mutual intimacy exists between Virgo and Aries, but they should strive hard to deal by genuine appreciation and compassion for each other's bounds. Conversation between these two signs may be tiring, with both a Virgo and an Aries striving to compensate for the other's flaws. Aries and Virgo establish an unshakable romantic bond when they are at their finest, but both sides must learn from one another's principles and improve their own personality.
7) Aries – Libra
Ganesha says one of the zodiacs that is highly romantically and maritally compatible for Aries is Libra. When Aries and Libra come united, their bond is based on trust, cognitive brilliance, and a never-ending desire to have fun. Sometimes, common attributes they like in each other seem to be out of control like impatience or rigidity, it becomes critical for an Aries and Libra couple to keep one another in tune. The good part is that Libra's boundless exuberance complements Aries' daring attitude perfectly. Aries- Libra relationship may be guided by being engaged, directing their enthusiasm towards various charities, and regulating oneself rather than suffocating at the very first indication of trouble.
8) Aries – Scorpio
Aries and Scorpio go well with each other in terms of love and romance. Both the signs have totally different personalities but it proves to be good for their love and marriage compatibility as both the signs seek their own different side in their partner’s personality. Fun loving Aries natives share a perfect rhythm with the serious nature of Scorpio. Immense amount of trust for each other makes their bond stronger. Over protective behaviour of Scorpio natives can cause a little discomfort and this usually draws a line between them but nothing can hold them apart as this pair can be considered most compatible partners in their life says celebrity astrologer Chirag Bejan Daruwalla.
9) Aries – Sagittarius
A prominent example of free love birds is Sagittarius and Aries. Because of their innate openness, drive to discover, and self-assuredness, Aries and Sagittarius can create a rapid relationship. These two appreciate each other's desire for independence, and they have a fascinating rapport that stems from both sides' insatiable need for new insights. However, a Sagittarius and Aries couple must keep an eye out for out-of-control emotional outbursts and work with each other to combat their common habit to ignore possible repercussions before rushing into issues. These two Fire signs have very good terms and are secure in romantic relationships when they are at their finest.
10) Aries – Capricorn
This romantic pair shares a very low love and marriage compatibility and is least recommended for marriage. There are more tears than smiles in the relationship between Aries and Capricorn. Capricorns and Aries have the most problems with physical affection. The opposition between Saturn in Capricorn and Mars in Aries might make both sides unable to comprehend and satisfy each other's wishes. The assertiveness of an Aries might confuse a meticulous Capricorn. When it comes to interacting, Capricorns appreciate logic and are prone to dismissing Aries' ideas since they appear hasty. Capricorn's urge that the events and people be always productive may irritate and bore Aries. This coupling can lead to a long-term quarrel that is exacerbated by both sides' tenacity.
11) Aries – Aquarius
When it comes to physical closeness and romance, these two signs build rapport and believe one another, yet they may be stressed. Both signs add a tremendous amount of energy to a sensual relationship, but their shared inability to express their feelings in social settings can make both partners feel neglected. Notwithstanding these difficulties, Aries and Aquarius could have a strong connection in other areas, such as their mutual passion for new experiences and their eagerness to discuss and think creatively as romantic partners. When the two partners are out of sync, this combination might lack empathy, but when they are in sync, Aries and Aquarius may establish intense partnerships built on mutual respect and mutual values.
12) Aries – Pisces
Both partners in an Aries-Pisces relationship would usually tread carefully around one another. In love partnerships, Pisces typically demand softness and tenderness—qualities that Aries don't usually possess. Aries and Pisces may also have trouble establishing positive scale. Pisces’s inability to comprehend Aries' forthright interpersonal skills create issues sometimes while Aries chooses to be unnecessarily demanding. In the end, both Aries and Pisces are sensitive, but in very different ways. As a result, empathising, active listening tactics, and concord for these two signs is tough. Their love and marriage compatibility stays at lower grounds but it still depends on how much each partner can let go for love.
