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…
