As a bold Aries ruled by the fiery action planet Mars, your perfect partner is able to match your assertive and impulsive nature. No wallflowers need apply! Look to fellow Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, who can keep up with your energy and enthusiasm, and watch out for those "too sensitive" types.
You Rams are fiery, impulsive, pioneering, and love romance -- especially new ones. With another Aries, you find yourself in an extremely dynamic relationship that has a constant competitive edge. You'll each need to watch for potential flare-ups and ego clashes. Since it takes two to tango, why not learn to be patient and levelheaded with one another? This will help to smooth out the rough spots between you two hot-headed individuals.
With another Aries, you can certainly blaze a trail of flaming passion and zest as long as each of you remains patient with the other. Try not to make too many long-term plans, for if you don't become bored with the relationship, then your partner might. It will take influences from other stabilizing planets, like Saturn, to give this relationship staying power.
Your enthusiasm can help to perk up the sometimes-lazy Taurus. You Aries are ruled by fiery Mars and tend to be more restless than your Taurus partner, who is ruled by the love planet, Venus. It may be necessary for you to take the lead on many activities.
On the other hand, your bull-headed Taurus friend is more persevering than you'll ever be, and will likely bring tenacity and endurance to the relationship. You are the hot-headed and impulsive one, but the Moon in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) or water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) in your chart may mellow you out.
Your mate may not often lose their temper, but when they do, you'd better watch out! Both of you can be reactionary and somewhat childlike in your response to authority and leadership. When it comes to play, however, the two of you can romp and roam the fields of life. Slow down, Aries, and you'll be able to enjoy this relationship for a long time to come.
Your fire burns brighter when in the company of an airy Gemini and you can make quite the compatible couple. You are both eager and alive with plenty of ambition, vision and verve. Because of your impulsive spontaneity, however, trouble exists when you decide to veer off the course of the relationship in search of new and exciting potentials. Just when you have found this search unsatisfying, deciding to return to the relationship, your curious and clever Gemini friend announces he or she has found an interest in the greener pastures of life.
So, the biggest problem you might have in relationship with a Gemini is that while you are busy distracting yourself outside the relationship, they are not home waiting for you to return. Without supporting contacts between the weightier outer planets in your charts, this relationship may never have the time to mature.
On the other hand, if you keep your Gemini partner fully engaged, they will not lose interest. You're going to learn how to be more tolerant before you can fully settle in for the long haul of long-term commitment. Even if your relationship doesn't last forever, chances are that it will bring you much fun and excitement.
Your Aries folks have fiery Mars as your key or ruling planet. As such, you aren't eager to show your emotions. In fact, you take care of things by going into action mode rather than talk about your feelings. You are candid, spontaneous, and quick to recover from emotional setbacks. This is so very different than your Cancer partner, who is ruled by the watery Moon. They are deeply emotional, caring and highly sensitive. A natural tendency to nurture and protect their own feelings can cause them to withdraw from the playful and lighthearted whims that you Aries find so enjoyable.
Cancers may cramp your style, for they seem to worry about everything, while you'd rather do it now and worry about it later -- if ever at all. It's not all bleak, however. A good relationship is possible if you can learn to honor the sincere emotions of your Cancer friend, but, in turn, they must learn to respect your need to act spontaneously.
If Venus in your chart is in Pisces or Taurus, you will be better equipped to appreciate your lover. If your Moon is in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), chances for compatibility are increased. Regardless of other planetary positions, this can be a dynamic relationship that pushes each of you into new ways of expressing your love.
Fire signs tend to work well with other fire signs, so this can be a good and lasting pair as long as there is plenty of excitement, romance, and play. Both of you love a good time and will put sports, adventure, and parties on top of your priority list.
You are impulsively active by nature, and may be inspired by your creative, expressive, and fun-loving Leo partner. You are more likely to follow a whim, and it will take a very secure Leo to trust you enough to give you the freedom you'll want. Meanwhile, your Lion is loyal and faithful, as long as he or she feels loved or even adored.
You both love to be the center of attention and would never turn your backs on an opportunity to be admired. There is no shortage of physical passion here, especially as a way to burn off excess anger. If, however, the Moon in your chart is in Taurus, Scorpio or Aquarius, compatibility may be more difficult to achieve.
It would be a good idea for you two limelight lovers to admire each other, express your love actively and avoid excessive competition. Long-term potentials include an active and joyous life of laughter, entertainment and love.
Your spontaneous and childlike ways can be critically and harshly judged by the analytical Virgo. Virgo is drawn toward service and hard work, and makes a wonderful host or hostess. They are usually first to tidy up after a party, school function, or holiday gathering. You, on the other hand, may on occasion forget the golden rule of service, preferring the gaiety of social pleasure and the personal gratification of the moment.
Good humor is a key that can unlock the potential success between such different styles -- your impulsiveness and Virgo's compulsiveness. Virgos can have tremendous wit and you Aries really know how to laugh at yourself. If your Moon is in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn), your chances for long-term compatibility are increased, since your styles may not be as different as described.
If you can each manage to respect your natural differences and make adjustments to your lifestyle, you can create a long-lasting team with your Virgo partner. Your open and cheerful ways can keep your Virgo happy, while they bring a level of mental clarity into your life that can really help you along on your path.
Libra is the sign that is exactly opposite you in the zodiac, and as the old saying goes, "opposites attract." You are like opposite sides of the same coin, but of course, this means that you share the same coin.
You are naturally more interested in personal matters of the ego. Your Libra partner is probably more curious about what others think and do. You operate in terms of self-motivating desires while your partner learns about their own self through other people's experiences and ideas. As you Aries tend to be quite independent, your Libra is wired for relationships and loves to relate others. Together you balance each other and tend to blend well.
If the Moon or Mars in your chart is in an air sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) compatibility will be easier as you better relate to the intellectual aspects of your lover. No matter what the other planets add into the mix, your involvement with a Libra can teach you the virtue of relationships, valuable people skills and flexibility.
You Aries can burn on the hot side and with a Scorpio you may have met your match. Passion is the common thread that intertwines you in this relationship.
Your Scorpio partner's fire is deep, relentless and consuming. Meanwhile, your fire blazes brightly with sheer excitement and then tends to settle down as you recharge your batteries. Can your emotional and moody Scorpio mate keep up with your outward expression of enthusiasm and joy? Perhaps. But you'll have to learn the virtue of solid commitment and understand the fact that you are in it for the long haul.
If Venus in your chart is in Pisces, you'll better appreciate the feeling dimensions of your Scorpio lover. In fact, compatibility is enhanced if your Moon is in any water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces).
You can teach your Scorpio how to have a more lighthearted attitude toward life. He or she can put you in touch with the power of your own passion. Together, you are intense and focused, and will need plenty of time to dive into the pools of intimacy and to explore the mysterious and pleasurable realms of love.
You are quite the dynamic duo. Even when you are on your own, you are usually ready to do something new and exciting. Now, with a Sagittarius, you make an action-oriented pair, for you love to be on the go almost as much as your Sagittarius does.
Your impulsive temperament and quick-to-change ways may challenge the Sagittarius who prefers to set goals and strives to accomplish the tasks. Other planets in your chart, such as the Moon or Mars in an earth sign, may slow you down or make you less impulsive, thus increasing compatibility. Nevertheless, when you are with another fire sign, you stimulate each other toward new heights of accomplishment and achievement.
The optimistic character of Sagittarius is compatible with your cheerful disposition. With a Sagittarius, you adrenaline-seeking Aries will seldom find yourself caught in a rut of boring routines. Together you will blaze trails, light the fires of excitement and create adventures with one another.
Quick and eager for excitement, you hit solid ground, or maybe even a wall, with the practical purposefulness of a Saturnine Capricorn. You Rams butt heads with Capricorn the Goat, unless you can find a way to respect and honor each other's personal goals and drives.
You may be great at starting things but you're less accomplished at seeing them through to completion. Of course, the specific placement of the planets at your birth may alter this. For example, with Venus in Taurus, you may be more attracted to the practical side of your Capricorn lover. With the Moon or Mars in any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) or water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) chances for long-term compatibility are increased.
Regardless of these other planetary placements, when you are with a result-oriented Capricorn, you're going to have to learn to complete the tasks you start in order to win your partner's trust. On the other hand, your Capricorn mate needs to learn how to be comfortable uprooting and moving with your occasional impulsive needs for change. You're going to have to get used to your partner taking on more responsibilities than you would. You can help cheer them up with your enthusiastic encouragement when they are overwhelmed.
You pioneering Aries get along famously with inventive and progressive Aquarius as long as the know-it-all tendency of the Aquarius doesn't ignite your hot-headedness into an argument. You need plenty of room for independence and the good news is that airy Aquarius needs enough emotional detachment that you'll be able to have the freedom you need within this relationship.
Both of you enjoy new beginnings, the excitement of starting over and enthusiastically sharing your dreams with each other. There is rarely a dull moment in this relationship, unless there are other planetary indicators in your charts, such as Venus, Mars or the Moon in any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn).
The question between you two might be: "Who is going to become the more stable one?" Both of you can be sure-footed, courageous, and mentally equipped to take on the world. With purpose and determination, the two of you could uplift those around you with new perspectives and opinions about life.
As the first sign of the zodiac, you Aries are very different than Pisces, which is the last sign. You are robust, aggressive, and outgoing. You initiate action. Meanwhile, Pisces is sensitive, intuitive, and introverted.
You will, however, probably love the imaginative impulse of your Pisces partner, and they will enjoy your ability to enhance their dreams by taking actions to make them real. The problem is that your raw and natural instincts, when unchecked, can sometimes overwhelm the refined personality of Pisces. It's a good thing for you that your fishy friend can be compassionate and understanding.
As long as your actions are pure and well-intended, Pisces will try to find a way to remain flexible, supportive and receptive to your sheer enthusiasm. Sometimes, depending on other planetary placements in your birth chart, you Aries may have Piscean influences that can diffuse your differences. For example, with Mercury or Venus in Pisces, you'll have a natural understanding of your lover that will make communication easier between you. With the Moon in any water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) chances for compatibility are increased.
This is not an easy relationship, but can enrich your life and deepen your feelings if you can get past your differences in style.
