Below are the signs that are the most compatible with Aries. These are signs that can appreciate and bring out the best in an Aries native.
Of all signs, Leo may be the most compatible with Aries. It is one of the few signs that Aries is not able to dominate, and this makes Leo natives incredibly attractive to Aries natives. Aries finds the bold and regal nature of Leo to be irresistible.
This combination works slightly better when it is between a Leo man and an Aries woman than it does when it is between an Aries man and a Leo woman. In either case, the Leo native will generally take the lead in the relationship.
As both of these signs are Fire Signs, even though they are highly compatible, there will be some volatility in the relationship. Yet, both partners will be happy with each other, and conflict will generally resolve itself in the bedroom.
These two signs will bring out the best in each other. Leo will be able to absorb and temper the combativeness of Aries. In turn, Aries will energize and stimulate Leo, bringing out the natural courage of this sign.
Another great match for Aries is Sagittarius. Although this is another Fire Sign combination, it has a different flavor than the Aries/Leo relationship. These two signs bring out each other’s adventurous spirit. It is almost certain that this couple will spend a great deal of time traveling.
Of all of the matches that involve Aries, this is one of the less volatile. Sagittarius is able to absorb and deflect the combativeness of Aries with an easy-going nature and a wonderful sense of humor.
There could some issues between an Aries man and a Sagittarius woman if he tries to take control, but she will be able to hold her own. As with Aries and Leo, conflicts will often be followed by great sex.
Aries will appreciate and respect the free spirit of Sagittarius. Likewise, a Sagittarius native will be able to enjoy the companionship of an Aries native without feeling confined or held back. Overall, this is a wonderful combination.
Aries and Libra are opposite signs, and it is hard to find two signs that are more polarized than these two. Yet, despite this, or perhaps because of it, they make a very good match. These signs provide balance for each other, and thus are able to curb each other’s excesses.
Aries is by nature a warrior, and Libra is a peacemaker. Although they think very differently, there is a great deal of chemistry between them.
The balance that they provide each other is especially helpful when they are in social occasions together. The Libra native will be able to sooth any ruffled feathers created the Aries native. In turn, the Aries native will handle the times when it is necessary to be assertive and direct.
It will often appear to outsiders that Aries is the dominant partner in this relationship. In reality, however, the Libra native will get their way most of the time. Despite the gruff nature of Aries, natives of this sign will go out of their way to please Libra.
A match between Aries and Gemini is lively and delightful. They enjoy each other’s company, and similar to the match between Aries and Sagittarius, it is relatively harmonious.
Aries natives can sometimes take themselves too seriously, which is not good for them. They are much happier when they can laugh at themselves and their circumstances, and Gemini is just the sign to help them with that.
Gemini brings out the joy and zest for life that Aries is capable of. In turn, Aries can bring direction and motivation to Gemini.
This pairing is more likely to show up in friendships than romantic relationships, but it can make for a happy and long-lasting love match as well.
Now, let us look at the worst matches for Aries. These are signs that have a difficult time connecting with Aries, with relationships that are often plagued by excessive conflict.
Aries and Taurus have nothing in common with each other, and it will be hard for them to build a life together. For Aries, life is an adventure filled with opportunities to display courage and valour. For Taurus, there is nothing more important than comfort and peace.
The needs of Aries and the needs of Taurus are not easily reconciled. Aries finds Taurus to be dull, and Taurus finds Aries exhausting. In many cases, these signs will not get together at all.
It will be particularly hard for an Aries man and a Taurus woman to get together. A Taurus man, Aries woman combination is more likely, although it is also more volatile.
The combination of Aries and Cancer can be the most volatile in the zodiac. These signs bring out the worst in each other, and they can find easily find themselves in a vicious cycle when it comes to conflict.
Aries approaches problems head-on. The Aries worldview is that of problems to solve and battles to be won. Cancer can also be brave and courageous, but the primary motivations of Cancer are to nurture and protect.
The negative side of Aries that this sign can be overly aggressive. The negative side of Cancer is that the positive traits of this sign can get inverted and become self-protection and self-pity.
The aggressiveness of Aries can overwhelm and frighten Cancer, who will retreat into a protective shell. Even though Cancer by nature is kind and nurturing, the symbol of Cancer is the crab, and crabs have wicked claws.
The more a Cancer native retreats and brings out their claws, the more enraged an Aries native will become, which will cause the Cancer native to go deeper into their shell and cut harder and deeper with their claws. This is not easy to resolve.
Despite this, there is a great deal of chemistry between these signs, which can mean that this combination is far more likely than one would think based on their dynamics.
While an Aries/Cancer combination may be the most volatile in the zodiac, an Aries/Aries combination is a close second. Aries enjoys a good fight. The archetype for Aries is the Warrior, and this sign is ruled by Mars.
It is true that two Aries natives will understand each other, but they are really too much alike. Aries does better when there is someone else to balance and temper the excesses of this sign. When there are two Aries natives, this is not possible.
Yet, despite this volatility, or perhaps because of it, there will be a lot of sexual chemistry between them. This sexual chemistry can overcome and absorb some of the inevitable conflicts that will arise.
- Aries Man and Aries Woman Compatibility (detailed analysis)
The compatibility between Aries and Capricron is complicated. This combination will rarely be found in a love match or long-term partnership. It is particularly rare between an Aries man and a Capricorn woman. The more likely combination will be between a Capricorn man and an Aries woman.
Aries and Capricorn are both driven and hard-working signs. Yet, their styles and motivations are very different. Aries is hot and full of passion. Capricorn is much cooler and works for slow and steady progress.
The relationship between these signs in the zodiac is a 90-degree angle, known as a square, which is the same relationship between Aries and Cancer. Yet, the Aries/Capricorn combination is far less volatile. In most cases, these two will never get together.
Although, this is a difficult match for love relationships, it can work quite well for business ones, where these two signs can balance each other.
Summary of Aries Compatibility
When it comes to compatibility with Aries, the best matches are Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, and Gemini. Aries is least compatible with Taurus, Cancer, another Aries, and Capricorn.
As stated before, these are generalizations based on Sun Sign alone. Each person is complicated, and to understand your particular relationship, a professional astrology reading is recommended.
Also, compatibility is only one part of the equation when it comes to the success of a relationship. The other part is the willingness of both partners to understand each other and to work through difficulty. The most incompatible match can work with this willingness, and the most compatible match can fall apart without it.
