Love and Dating: Aries

How Aries Relates to Love and Commitment

Keeping up with an Aries might occasionally be exhausting for lesser mortals, but there’s something absolutely irresistible about these action heroes of the Zodiac, whether they’re Xena, Iron Man, Wonder Woman or Wolverine.

The Aries man is the quintessential knight in shining armor, ready, willing and able to take on the most daunting tasks or slay truly huge and evil dragons. Aries women are natural feminists, and usually become leaders, whatever they choose to do.

Aries men and women are enthusiastic, impetuous, outspoken, sexually active (!), romantic… and occasionally incredibly insensitive, which, unless you’re a vulnerable Cancer or Pisces, is a small price to pay for the life of fun and adventure which you are likely to have when you succumb to an Aries’ charms. If you point out what they’ve said to hurt you, most Aries will apologize promptly and sincerely, but even with the best of intentions they’re likely to blow it again. The secret is not to take it personally.

And here’s the other important thing to keep in mind if you want to bag your very own Aries: don’t be boring, and don’t expect them to settle for a staid, predictable life.

Of course, what your Aries finds exciting depends on what else is going on in their astrological chart … the other planets, the signs they occupy, their ascendant. One Aries man I know is an incredibly demonstrative, devoted husband and father … and a librarian. Really! Of course, in his spare time he canoes down hair-raising level 5 whitewater rapids in remote, rugged areas. And it doesn’t matter that his Leo wife won’t travel anywhere that doesn’t have flush toilets and private, hot showers, because he’s just as excited about going on her posh cruises as he is about his canoeing.

Sadly, Aries’ impetuous nature can get them in romantic hot water occasionally. They can fall in love at first sight, never mind the details, and are difficult to dissuade if you’re not interested. It’s not at all unusual for an Aries to be burned in love several times before they find the perfect mate they’re seeking. Since they aren’t inclined to sit back and study a situation before jumping in, they usually have to learn the hard way. But once they’ve found the right one, they’re faithful, inventive and expressive.

Generally speaking, you’ll be most compatible with an Aries if you were born under the signs of Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius, or if your Moon, Ascendant or a few other planets in your birth chart are in those signs.

Keeping in mind that there’s more to astrology than your birth sign, here are some quick ideas about what you could experience in a relationship with Aries.

Aries – Have you ever watched a nature show about rams and heard the crack of butting horns echoing through a mountain pass? Well, enough said!

Taurus – If you’re typical and prefer comfort, security and lots of cool stuff around you, then Aries might be a difficult choice. Flexibility and compromise are key.

Gemini – No one could accuse you of being boring, and Aries would find your changeability tantalizing. Hot chemistry, but Aries could get burned.

Cancer – You hide hurt feelings; Aries tends to blurt things out. Aries would appreciate a stable, cozy home if you give them freedom to go adventuring.

Leo – A stimulating, enjoyable match to last a lifetime. Enough extra energy to fuel a small city.

Virgo – Surprisingly, this could work with some effort on both parts. Aries would add richness and color to Virgo’s life; Virgo could motivate great achievements.

Libra – The old saw about opposites attracting holds true here, but it’s also true that opposites can clash unless they have strong values in common.

Scorpio – You’re both intense, but in very different ways. Scorpio’s possessiveness would be a drag for Aries, who expects, and usually deserves, trust.

Sagittarius – Could be delightful, if you learn to share the number one spot. One of the best choices for Aries.

Capricorn – An unlikely match, but a combination of chemistry and practicality could make both parties decide the extra work is worth it.

Aquarius – Not quite as ideal as Leo, but close. For best results, Aquarius’ focus on friendship needs to heat up to passion.

Pisces – Pisces can see into your soul, which isn’t always comfortable for Aries. But then, Pisces is often in the market for a knight in shining armor

    I’m a Aries, and it’s true when I find the right mate I will be faithful to him until death do us apart. I’m very out spoken mostly when I feel that someone is trying too step on my toes are
    to back me up against a wall. I’m a lovable caring female who is also very intelligent. I can be
    dominate I don’t believe their is a such thing as a sign of weakness too me that’s a total turn off. I’m no cheater. although the relationships I have encountered in my past the men were cheaters. I don’t
    believe in going backwards into a past relationship when I’m done I’m done they are not called the ex for nothing. I do feel that you have explained most of us Aries too a T. I have never felt jealous of what someone else had in their life it don’t matter too me because I feel this world is
    big enough for us all too receive what we want to achieve. I’m honest and I expect the same from people who I come in contact with. life isn’t perfect but I try my best too make my life worth living for without harming others. I’m single at this time but because I haven’t found the right man to peek my interest yet. And you are right I do sometimes seek out a certain male from a distance in my mind he is the one it don’t come too my mind too see if he is the
    right man for me it’s love at first sight. I can be great at pin pointing everything else but romance lol!. Because if he has captured my interest then I feel nothing are no one can tell me different about that man. I do have to find out the hard way if he is the one for me.

    Thanks

We started talking one night and found out he lived only blocks from me for years and we grew up only a few streets apart . but anyway my question is I have looked online and gooled and searched for hours and can’t seem to find anything for an an Aries male and a female born under the cusp of a Sagittarius and a Aapricorn or any of the other signs who are in a relationship with anyone under the sign of a cosp. can anyone help me please? I just want some advice about how my being under two signs with effect him and if I should just hold back my feelings for him and stay friends!?

    I been with an Aries for 5 years. I am a Saggattarius lady. I like you what you said about Aries mens, when they find the right one they will be faithful. Well i guess i wasnt the right one. I always felt he was cheating on me. This Aries man would start arguing so he can leave but would not tell me where he been. I dont care for lairs, cheater, dishonesty but i will give you the benefit of the doubt. Im am a sincere honest, true to my Aries, but most Aries dont like to admit there wrong doings. I enjoy you what you wrote Verbena gives me more insight on him now. I do not give up to easily but before i throw in the towel i work see it from what you all said. Thanks

    Yes! i love this i am an Aries women n everything is true. but i must disagree with the self esteem thing i been struggling with mine for a very long time now, not only that but who i am in this world also. I am a medium tho n it conflicts which who i am in this reality sometimes. Being new to this whole thing n thinking i was crazy most my life i feel 100% better knowing now that just being me is amazing in its self.But now that i know the issues i been struggling with is not what i thought i feel as tho im a true aries at heart now 🙂 but took me a long time to come to this so i dont think all aries r as strong as we wanna think! i date a pieces now for 9 yrs and its been hard! at the least lol i love him with all my heart n always will but BOY are pieces a horrible horrible match for aries hardheads! they are not upfront enough to deal with us we are very very blunt people n expect everyone else in our lifes to be the same.

    I am a Gemini woman (65) widow, met my Aries friend last January & I adore him. He’s very funny has a kind heart, very generous & he has the warmest body I’ve ever felt. We both love to cuddle. The sex is the best I’ve ever experienced, great stamina! He makes me feel like I’m 20 again. We have tons of fun & laugh all the time. He’s 64 & loves to call me his Cougar! The only thing I would change is the fact that he thinks he’s the 911 of his city, always helping everyone in need. Be it money, cars, lodging everything! Sometimes I get pushed to the back burner while he’s helping someone else with their projects. But he’s totally worth waiting for. I’m hanging around as long as he’ll let me!

    Aries will take it all on for the better good when there is honest respectful communication . Similar to Boddichita thats where Aries show up taking the blame stepping up in the face of threats to protect and serve their loved ones.

He wants all the attention and doesnt give much, He has gotten very tight with money ( wantin me to pay for half of everything) askin for me to pay for us a cruise????? He lies all the time about everything, whats up with that??? does not sound like the Aries described but DOB is 3-23, He is a great kisser and loves his children and does every thing for them which I totally respect,, keep the comments coming

    I am an Aries woman and I love my sign. I must agree with everyone here in a big way. I just know that we are very unique in so many ways. We are smart, independent, strong minded and very loveable. To Selu; I am married to a Cancer and I am soon to divorce. We have been together for a long time. Cancer men are hard workers and very controlling with their money. Everything is one sided when it comes to material things. They are also horrible liars and hard to break when it comes to telling the truth and this doesn’t work with us unfortunately. They don’t know how to accept the truth when you let them know about themselves. Selu, please be careful when you give your heart to them completely. It can get ugly. We Aries are strong, and with God on our side, the storm will pass. As for me, I am finding my way and moving on with my life.

    I like this list of how we are and other signs.. Its funny but it is so true.. glad we get along with most of the other signs.. sometimes it feels very lonley in our aries head many times with other signs.. Its always a great time to meet a fellow arien to chat with, or spend time with.. many times its just no effort at all.. It just flows so natural. We are so honest and say it like it is.. but the rest of the world seems to take this as being rude or nasty. This is so not true. Its because we give a shit. when we dont care we just agree.

    Hi! I am an Aries woman and several of these characteristics describe me well.
    We Aries value friendship and sincerity, since we are dedicated to those who are part of our circle of friends and family, and every one in that circle must be aware that an Aries is frontal to the point of being brutally honest.
    Yes, we love the spotlight – but we’re not envious. An Aries will spare no praise to anyone who has excelled them, but will feel betrayed if someone takes advantage of their good will and steals that same spotlight. Aries loathes dishonesty.
    I had a relationship with a Leo. It was extremely hot but also stormy, and one thing I could not tolerate was that he wanted the spotlight too, but did not hesitate to present stuff I had accomplished as done by him, just to get the attention. It became a longterm power struggle and ended with no regrets.
    Be honest to an Aries and you’ll have a friend for life – the kind that takes a shirt off their back if you need it while saying it’s not cold at all and you see their skin turning blue…

    Thank you very much for the article! I am an Aries/ Taurus cusp woman (b-day is 4-19), in my early 30’s and am dating a Cancer man. I was wondering if you were going to, or were planning, on writing an article about the Aries woman? I noticed that it was only the male’s involvement with an Aries woman that was addressed here. That kinda dissapointed me- so I do hope that you will consider doing a “vice- versa” article sometime soon. I love WC horoscopes and the add on articles everyday~ so I really hope you can/ will address the aformentioned question. Thank you for all that you do! Namaste!

    Thanks so much for this article, Verbena. I feel you covered all the bases, and the section on relationships with other signs is very helpful, indeed! I’m always inspired by Aries, which, as the first fire sign in the zodiac and a cardinal sign, is so great at leadership and beginning new projects. A conscious Aries can really teach us all the lessons of self-esteem, individuality, and how to forge ahead, despite obstacles, using their amazing pioneering spirit!

    There are so many wonderful things to this sign. After almost 20 years of working in this industry, I have noticed two things that seems to be the case for most people born under this sign-DO NOT try to make this sign jealous…..Also, don’t play games with this sign-This sign is one of the most direct signs of the zodiac.
    I find a lot of times that Aries are starting up companies, CEO’s, director of a department or organizing something. I know a civil rights lawyer, born under this sign, that has won many cases-I lost a dear friend that was an heir to a well-known family-very generous-Never asked this person for one thing, and always picking up the tab, not just for me, but also for my friends. A long time ago, before working here, at CP, I worked at a small radio station, that needed support in order to stay on the air-My friend made a huge donation, kept us on the air and I never even asked them for help. So, be true to this sign and have a friend who will fight for you, help you, but also, make sure that you are honest with them. I miss my friend, terribly-This person passed away too young-As you can see, they will prolly never be replaced. So be true to your aries friends, lovers, boss and so on. Say it like it is-Yes, they may disagree with you, at times, but will value your honesty. Thanks, Verbena, for the great write up. Huggies, Miss Krystal
