People born under the sign of the Ram are charismatic, passionate, ambitious, and brave. Of course, in some people’s eyes, they can seem a bit more on the reckless and foolish side. This highlights the importance of compatibility — you need to find someone you really vibe with if you’re both going to grow into your best selves.
While your sun sign alone can’t give you the whole picture, you can see how well Aries’ fiery energy mixes with others.
Aries and Aries Compatibility
Aries and Aries can go one of two ways. This is a partnership of two very strong personalities, so, if they can agree on one direction to go in, they may be pretty much unstoppable! On the other hand, if their opinions differ greatly, there may be a lot of friction.
Luckily for these Rams, the relationship will never be boring. They both love adventures and novelty, so they’re guaranteed to have no end of fun together.
If this pair can learn to see the bigger picture, wield their power together, and compromise on differences of opinion, they can be a stellar match. If not, this relationship is likely to experience a lot of highs and lows.
Aries and Taurus Compatibility
Aries and Taurus can have a tough time. Taurus effectively operates as an immovable object to Aries’ irresistible force. Where the Ram wants to dive into things headfirst, Taurus is all about stability (and stubbornness).
At the worst of times, these signs can have a hard time finding a middle ground that lets everyone thrive. Taurus often doesn’t understand Aries’ “fall down ninety-nine times, get up one hundred” attitude, and these signs follow the beats of very different drums.
At the best of times, Taurus helps provide some reliability and structure to Aries’ often harebrained schemes. Aries can also help Taurus appreciate the value of spontaneity and fun.
Aries and Gemini Compatibility
Aries and Gemini can make for a very pleasant, harmonious relationship. Both of these signs have a lot of energy. They’re both sociable and charismatic, so they’re likely to be drawn to each other quickly. Unlike Aries and Taurus, Aries and Gemini follow very similar rhythms.
These signs also complement each other. Motivated Aries can help Gemini get things done. Gemini can also stimulate Aries’ life-of-the-party nature.
Gemini may also help Aries blunt their horns a little, teaching the Ram better strategies for getting their way in life. In any case, this is likely to be a relationship full of passion, adventure, and fun.
Aries and Cancer Compatibility
Aries and Cancer aren’t a great match for each other. While opposites often attract, these signs might be a little too opposed to form a lasting relationship.
Cancer is naturally sensitive and emotional, which can wear on Aries. The Ram isn’t really great at reciprocating the Crab’s emotional investment in their relationship, which Cancer may find invalidating.
Those born under Cancer also thrive in relationships with a lot of closeness, whereas Aries values their independence. The Ram is so caught up in new projects, new adventures, and new endeavors, that there’s not much room left for emotional dependency.
When other astrological placements help things along, Cancer can provide a caring, nurturing atmosphere for Aries, while Aries can broaden Cancer’s horizons. A lot of compromise will be needed on both sides.
Aries and Leo Compatibility
The Ram and the Lion can get along beautifully. Both of them value independence. Leo will enjoy Aries’ sense of individuality and passion, while Aries will be charmed by Leo’s regal bearing.
Other signs often find Aries and Leo intimidating, so it’ll be refreshing to both of them to find a partner that doesn’t. They can differ in their approach to social situations — while Leo is very aware of how others perceive them, Aries often couldn’t care less.
They’re both very self-motivated signs who are likely to have their own goals in life. They’re also very passionate, so there will definitely be the occasional fight. Fortunately, any arguments will most likely flare up and flame out quickly, followed by very enthusiastic making up!
Aries and Virgo Compatibility
Aries and Virgo are one of those pairings that inevitably falls to one side or the other. When it works, it works wonderfully. When it doesn’t, it’s like mixing vinegar and baking soda. In the beginning, they may think they have nothing in common. This can lead to a physical attraction that doesn’t seem like it has much to back it up.
At worst, Aries will have trouble with Virgo’s analytical, critical nature and tendency to exhaustively research things before taking action. Virgo will be exasperated by the Ram’s tendency to leap before looking, and become annoyed at being left picking up the pieces when things go badly.
At best, these signs both value honesty. On a physical level, Virgo can be every bit as passionate as Aries — it just takes time and intimacy for their fire to come out. These signs can also teach each other a lot. Aries can learn the virtues of research and patience, while Virgo can learn to lighten up and pursue their dreams.
Aries and Libra Compatibility
Aries and Libra can fall into some of the same pitfalls as Aries and Virgo, albeit to a different degree. Libra is very interested in objectivity, justice, and fairness, so they’re also inclined to learn as much as they can about something before jumping in.
Aries is much more likely to dive into something as soon as the fancy takes them, and doesn’t really care about anyone else’s input. The Ram is likely to become frustrated by Libras’ indecisiveness.
These signs are directly opposed to each other in the zodiac. This means that they can be intensely attracted to each other, and, at the best of times, will complement each other nicely. This means that this relationship has the potential to be very balanced and harmonious, but it’ll require some compromise to get there.
Aries and Scorpio Compatibility
The Ram and the Scorpion suffer from many of the same issues that the Ram and the Crab do. Aries values independence, self-motivation, and autonomy. Scorpio wants closeness and intimacy, sometimes to the point of co-dependency. They’re both very passionate signs, but this is one situation where all of that fire can cause more problems than it solves.
Scorpio tends to be more patient than Aries, while the Ram becomes annoyed and frustrated easily. Aries’ temper also flares up and out very quickly — they’ll get angry, then over it in the blink of an eye. Scorpio, on the other hand, is the master at holding a grudge.
When these signs get along, they can be very motivating for each other. There’s likely to be a lot of physical attraction, too. It’s up to both partners to put in the time and effort to understand and compromise with each other, because this pairing has a lot of challenges to overcome.
Aries and Sagittarius Compatibility
Sagittarius is one of the best potential partners for Aries. Both of these signs are playful adventurers, eager to explore and have lots of fun.
If anything, they can end up egging each other on and feeding off of each other’s exuberance! Even if they spend a lot of time with each other, Aries is unlikely to feel smothered by Capricorn, and vice versa.
There’s one big area where these signs may struggle: longevity. Both Sagittarius and Aries have tons of motivation and enthusiasm, but almost all of that is reserved for new things.
They love jumping right into an adventure, but often run out of steam when things get difficult or tedious. No relationship can be fun and games all of the time, so both of these signs need to work to tough it out and make the relationship last.
Aries and Capricorn Compatibility
The Ram and the Sea-goat can have a hard time with each other. Capricorn is very sensible and determined. They’re consummate planners, capable of achieving great things through determination, organization, and hard work.
Aries is also all about achieving their goals, but tend to rely more on luck, enthusiasm, and a sheer force of will. Capricorn only takes calculated risks, carefully weighing the potential benefits before doing anything.
Aries has never met a gamble they didn’t like and doesn’t know the meaning of failure. As a result, Capricorn can find Aries reckless and foolish, while Aries may find Capricorn stodgy and restrictive.
When things go well, they can complement each other. Aries can help motivate Capricorn, while Capricorn can teach Aries the value of a plan, work ethic, and sense of follow through. It’s a pairing that can work, but will take patience to do so.
Aries and Aquarius Compatibility
The Ram and the Water-bearer have the potential to have a very harmonious, mutually beneficial relationship. Aquarius is a community-oriented humanitarian, and Aries can have a lot of enthusiasm for tackling social issues.
Both of these signs tend to be progressive visionaries, and Aries will admire Aquarius’ uniqueness while Aquarius admires Aries’ ambition. On the other hand, Aries tends to be more focused on themselves than Aquarius is. Aquarius may also be a little too fun-loving and noncommittal for Aries.
When they can come to an understanding and try to see things from each other’s point of view, they can be a force for good in the world. If not, they’re likely to happily go their separate ways.
Aries and Pisces Compatibility
Pisces and Aries are one of those relationships that can start out complementary, but eventually become unhealthy. Pisces is sensitive, gentle, and emotionally deep, which will help comfort reckless Aries after a fall.
Aries is charismatic, motivated, and ambitious, which Pisces will find very attractive. Pisces is a dreamer, poet, and lover; Aries is a bold adventurer. It’s a case of opposites attracting.
Unfortunately, this attraction can only last if both partners are getting what they need. While Aries will find a soft place to land in Pisces, they may not be able to reciprocate.
The Ram isn’t quite as attentive or empathetic as the Fishes, so they may end up hurting their partner’s feelings. Pisces also tends to give away too much of themselves, and may begin to resent Aries for it. This is a pairing that requires a lot of communication. Both partners need clear needs, expectations, and boundaries.
Aries are bold, lovable adventurers. There’s a lot to admire about their fearlessness and willingness to act on their gut feelings.
It takes the right partner to bring out the Ram’s best qualities, while helping them learn from their mistakes. Meanwhile, Aries’ partner can benefit from the Ram’s ambition, motivation, and passion.
