Aries in Love: Too Hot to Handle?

Aries does love pretty much like Aries does everything else – with the utmost passion and energy. Extremely physical, enthusiastic and driven, you are a strong-willed and tempestuous lover, prone to temper tantrums one moment and declarations of undying love the next. Because you simply won’t stand being told what to do, Aries compatibility depends in large part on finding a partner who will respect your need for freedom and independence. As a mythological archetype, Aries is the pioneering hero, and this is reflected in your romantic makeup.

With a high sex drive and a need for lots of physical contact, you’re a demonstrative lover, but not all signs can keep up with you. Your passionate nature is both appealing and terrifying at the same time, and enough to frighten off some of the less ardent signs of the zodiac. Being the first zodiac sign, you’re also very fond of yourself; indeed, some would say that Aries is the most selfish sign. Working out how to compromise with your partner is not easy for you, but learning how to tone down your demands is all part of increasing your Aries compatibility appeal – and ensuring that your relationships last for longer.

At the start of a relationship, Aries is certainly one who enjoys the chase; if you want to be with someone, you will pursue them ardently and make your feelings very plain indeed….even scarily so! As a fire sign, you are impulsive and impatient, so you’ll make grand gestures and whisk your lover off for exotic weekends or off-the-wall proposals at the drop of a hat. This kind of romance goes down pretty well with most of us, so Aries compatibility levels are initially quite high with most signs – but the devil is in the detail and the best compatibility match for Aries is a sign with some patience and staying power.

When things are not going quite so well, the Aries temper comes into play – and anyone who has ever faced the full brunt of a furious Ram will know that this is not a pretty sight. Fortunately for your partners, your anger, although quick to flare, is also quick to fade…but not always before the damage is done. You need a partner who is understanding of your emotional outbursts, tolerant, and has a thick enough skin to not take it all personally. Aries compatibility with sensitive souls such as Pisces or Cancer can work surprising well, however, if the gentler sign can see through the Aries mask to your deeper insecurities, and thereby forgive your emotional aggression.

You might think that the best compatibility match for Aries is another fire sign, but two fire signs together can create an unstoppable inferno of the wrong kind. More suitable might be an air sign, where Aries’ fire and passion can help bring air’s ideas and concepts to life. Aries and earth signs can be a complicated mixture, with each side stifling the other. As in life, however, romance is never as simple as what sign you are, and star sign compatibility is just a guide. Ultimately, any Aries compatibility issues can be resolved if you are truly in love.

What draws others to you as an Aries is your adventurous spirit, the fire in your belly, your passion and your ability to live your life to the full. What turns them off is your temper, your selfishness and that slight edge of reckless abandon which can be at once exhilarating and panic-inducing in your partners. Not necessarily the most faithful of signs, you tend to make hasty decisions in love, which you regret at leisure. Whoever manages to calm your emotional inferno, however, will find you to be a fascinating partner, with lots of ideas for growing the relationship. A relationship with an Aries is never boring, whatever else it might be, so Aries compatibility is enhanced with any sign which appreciates life just a little less ordinary.
