Aries and Scorpio Compatibility: The Hero and the Sorcerer

One of the most scorchingly hot and searingly intense zodiac love pairings, this is a couple who would die for one another – or who will half kill each other in the fall out. Aries and Scorpio compatibility is a wild ride indeed, plunging this couple from the heights of ecstasy to the depths of despair and back again with frightening speed. No sign has a greater reputation for sexual intensity than Scorpio, and Aries compatibility depends a lot on sexual compatibility, so from the bedroom to the mundane details of everyday life, this is a relationship built on desire and passion all the way through.

A key to understanding the dynamics of Aries and Scorpio compatibility is to know that historically, both of these signs are ruled by Mars. Mars is the planet of passion – and of war. In recent times, Scorpio’s rulership has been re-assigned to Pluto, but that’s not an improvement, folks. Pluto is the planet of power, destructiveness and our collective dark side…. so when Mars and Pluto meet head on, intense power struggles result. Often, Scorpio and Aries compatibility is all-consuming and intoxicating but very short lived. This can be the once in a lifetime affair that neither side will ever forget, but which would have been simply impossible to sustain in the long term. “Affair” being the operative term too, since often in this pairing at least one partner is married or committed elsewhere – there’s frequently an air of secrecy or deception around this partnership.

When life is running smoothly, however, this couple do have a lot going for them. Beyond their obvious mutual attraction and shared passion, they are intrigued by one another’s natures. Scorpio, as a water sign, can help hot-headed Aries ground their impulsiveness in intuition, resulting in better decisions. Aries, the fire sign, can tempt the Scorpio partner out of his or her deep water and into a cauldron of excitement and adventure. Both signs are highly ambitious in terms of getting what they want, and when they choose to work together towards a common goal, they create a magnificent team. Aries and Scorpio compatibility for life achievement is unstoppable, especially if Aries listens to Scorpio’s almost Machiavellian strategy expertise.

So much for the good times. Unfortunately for Aries and Scorpio, compatibility won’t always be so straightforward, because life for all of us usually gets pretty stressful at times. Under emotional pressure, this couple can fall apart fast. Scorpio will dig in, retreat and resort to emotional manipulation, while Aries will scream, shout and create tantrums that dignified Scorpio will despise. The relationship will be punctuated by heavy, intense rows and an emotionally destructive atmosphere. Each sign can hurt the other very badly if they try – and they will try. Jealousy can also be a very real issue for both Aries and Scorpio. Compatibility under stress  is hard to come by indeed for this partnership, and ultimately the drama will probably become too much for Scorpio, who is likely to be the one calling an end to the game. Aries should remember, however, that Scorpio can be extremely vindictive, and will neither forgive nor forget long after the relationship itself has ended.

Of course, sometimes, for some couples, Aries and Scorpio compatibility succeeds. Where it does, it will be a complex relationship that outsiders don’t really “get”, but will be characterised by extreme loyalty and protectiveness of one another. Perhaps it works best where the couple live apart, or are kept apart by their different careers for extended periods of time. In that case, the passion and overwhelming emotions of their reunions will be enough to keep the more destructive elements of this pairing at bay.

Looking back to this couple’s mythological archetypes, remember that sometimes the Hero is assisted by the Sorcerer….and sometimes the Hero must defeat the Sorcerer, who usually holds much more power than the Hero does. Only rarely do the Hero and Sorcerer stay together in what one could reasonably term a relationship, and the mythical friendship, if there is one, between the two archetypes is often tense. In Aries and Scorpio compatibility, we have two immensely powerful characters in their own right – and an enormous power struggle which can last a lifetime.

  1. I found the information accurate and refreshing! This reading has been useful in understanding my partner’s frame of mind and what his angle is in this relationship! Thanks

  2. Just got out of one with a scorpio, sux that I didnt pay attebtiin to this stuff enough, she was the one teaching me aboit it, I wish her all the best though, she is an amazinf person

  3. I’m a Scorpio and just ended my involvement with an Aries. It was an awesome wild ride while it lasted! If only he could straighten up and be faithful to me but I guess that might go against his Arian nature. I’m always going to miss the sparks between us. My heart is broken.

    • In my case she is the Aries and the struggle is commitment and loyalty with weak communication! If I’m emotional I’m not listening if I’m angry and neither does she ! Her stubbornness took over her willingness to listen to common sense.
      Going outside the relationship for me is s big NO NO and that line has been way crossed !

      • This sounds so,so much like a Scorpio male I know. We live in the same house and he told me a few weeks ago: “Move on!” So I took him at his word – thought, fine, he doesn’t want me any more, I can handle this. Conveniently an ex had rung me up so we went out on a couple of dinner dates. The moment I got back it was “who were you out with” and “another notch on the bedpost” etc., etc., (double standards!) and I said HOW WOULD YOU KNOW?! We should form our own debating society. We are like Hawkeye and Hoolihan from M*A*S*H. I don’t think we can agree on anything but what I will say is that I do think he has a better idea of money than I have (probably from studying it so hard). & a much better idea of what people want & like(which is not necessarily what they need). When he says something deliberately provocative about me amongst others I say “whatever floats your boat” in response and he just laughs. (!!!) Yes, our communication is non-existent at times but I’d like to be able to see the positive and accept that it’s maybe because we’re so much like each other (ie needing our quiet/ alone times) that in fact we don’t need to use unnecessary words. And I still feel there is so much more in our interpersonal relationship to explore besides the physical. I don’t dare to even think about how much I care for him as his words can cut like a knife and he has said things about my work and boy have they hurt – Scorpio, listen up, this is the quickest way to decimate an Aries’ libido or desire for you! I flirt and talk to this guy lightheartedly now and it’s nice just doing that for the time being – I am more relaxed now and just want to take things as they come as I can’t face showing affection and being cold-shoulderedagain (yes I have experienced that too). I read somewhere that the Aries woman wants commitment instantly, whereas the Scorpio man looks at everything making sense before he commits, and do you know, I think that’s absolutely bang on.

  4. I’m married to a Scorpio for 20 years and we just call it the “Cycle of Intense Fellowship” 😉 All laughs aside this is exactly the cycle we go through ever year. Six kids marriages and grand kids He’s still trying to divorce me then renew our marriage vows all in the same week… Lots of excitement….

    • Fire and water. Water douses fire. Fire makes water boil!

  5. Help I’m new with an scorpian man of course I’m an Arian woman I need some input the do’s and don’t ‘s

  6. Im a scorpio woman dateing a Aries man nd before reading this im like what am i possible doing so wrong after 6 years we cant seem to get it together. He so mean nd everything makes him mad nd he blame it on me. But i got him all figured. Out now

  7. I would have to agree with all of this because I’m an Aries female dating a Scorpio male and we have been together on and off for over 6 years. We tend to have this cycle were we are solid and on the up-n-up for 6-9 months, then we are at each others throats because of his overly jealous behavior and my flirting behavior. However, when we are apart we only think about each other and when we broke up for awhile… the relationships we tried to establish outside of ours didn’t work because we still wanted and loved each other. My friends and his say that our relationship isn’t healthy, but I rather enjoy this rollercoaster ride with him than to be without him! And the fire and desire in the bedroom is a HUGE +++
