Relationships in Astrology
In astrology, relationships follow a predictable pattern from when you first meet all the way through to a long term commitment. There are four distinguishable stages of this pattern that are marked by what is known as Houses.
Houses can be traced from the Sun Sign, but they can also be traced from what is known as the Ascendant or Rising Sign. With the date, time, and place of birth, you can get a free Natal Chart from Astrology Season, which will show the Rising Sign.
The first stage is the First House, when you first meet and decide whether you want a relationship at all. The second stage is an 11th House friendship, where you are starting to get close.
The third stage is the 5th House, where the relationship develops into a full-blown romantic relationship. The fourth and final stage is the 7th, where you form a more permanent commitment. With an Aries woman, you will see clear signs that you have made it through each stage.
Clear Signs an Aries Woman Likes You at Each Stage
The Beginning - Signs an Aries Woman Likes You and is Attracted to You
All relationships begin in the 1st House, in this case, Mars-ruled Aries. This stage will be the most difficult to get through with an Aries woman.
She does not date just anyone, and when an Aries woman has a crush on you, she will treat you as an enemy. Here are the signs an Aries woman likes you and finds you attractive.
1) She will hate you
There is a common story trope of people who cannot stand each other developing a deep and passionate romance over time. This trope was made with Aries women in mind.
If an Aries woman is attracted to you, you will bother her and get under her skin. She will want nothing to do with you, but at the same time, she not be able to take her mind off of you.
This will make you extremely annoying to her, and she will likely lash out at you. It is important that you stand your ground.
Aries women cannot abide weakness in others, and if you want to win and keep an Aries woman, you really must have the strength of will and character. Her initial animosity towards you is one of the signs an Aries woman likes you.
2) She will compete with you
In Greek mythology, there was a woman, Atalanta, who was a skilled athlete. She would only marry a man who could defeat her in a footrace.
An Aries woman is carved from the mold of Atalanta, and in order to win her heart, you will have to compete with her. If she is athletic, and many Aries women are, she will challenge you to a sports contest. If you are coworkers, she will compete with you with tasks at work.
Whatever it is, you must do your best to defeat her, and you must not hold back. If you can not win against her, you must at least make a good showing. She is testing your force of will and courage. She will appreciate a worthy opponent, no matter how the competition turns out.
3) She will show you respect
If you have passed her initial tests, an Aries woman will respect you. This is the first real step before an Aries woman falls in love. She will no longer try to provoke you, and she will treat you as an equal.
If you ask her out at this point, she will probably agree, although it might begrudgingly. She might also ask you out, not for a date, mind you, but to get together as friends.
Friendship - Signs an Aries Woman Enjoys Your Company
If you have gotten through the first turbulent stage with an Aries woman, things will get a lot easier. The next stage is an 11th House friendship, and the 11th House is ruled by Aquarius.
It is at this stage that an Aries woman will begin to talk with you, and you will be able to get to know each other better. Here are the signs an Aries woman likes you and wants you around.
4) She will tell you
Aries women do not beat around the bush. She will tell you exactly how she feels about you every step of the way. At this stage, it is unlikely to be flowery words of praise or affection.
Instead, it will be something along the lines of, "you are not so bad." If you are really doing well, it might be, "I do not know why, but I like you." It might not be the most romantic thing to hear, but it shows that you have made a great deal of progress with her.
5) She will do things with you
If an Aries woman likes you, she will want to spend time with you. An Aries woman does not have a lot of patience for long conversations or for sitting around. She will want activity and will usually have something in mind she wants to do.
Her tastes generally run to physical activities or contests, but this will not have the edge it did in the earlier stages of your relationship. It will turn into a true friendly competition.
An Aries woman will try to control your relationship, but do assert yourself about matters that are important to you. You will lose her respect if she can walk all over you. She wants someone who is an equal and whom she cannot control.
6) She will discuss serious matters with you
Even though Aries women are usually in motion, they do think about things, and they often have a unique outlook on life.
One of the signs an Aries woman likes you is that she will talk about her ideas. She will tell you her philosophy about many different subjects and she will want to know yours.
You should be honest with her about your thoughts and opinions, even if they disagree with hers. She will know immediately if you say something just to please her, and it will make her angry. It is better just to say what you think.
Do not worry if it turns into an argument. Aries women like a good fight. If you disagree and argue your position well, you will not change her mind, but you will arouse her passion!
Romance - Signs an Aries Woman is Falling in Love With You
When an Aries woman truly falls in love, she will do so wholeheartedly and completely. Romantic relationships are governed by the 5th House, and the 5th House from Aries is Leo.
When friendship turns to love with an Aries woman, it will be unmistakable! Below are the signs an Aries woman likes you and is falling in love.
7) Her eyes will sparkle
As much as an Aries woman fights falling in love, when she does, she really enjoys it. The face of an Aries woman in love will light up and she will have a sparkle in her eyes. She will smile, laugh, and genuinely have a lot of fun.
An Aries woman in love will become playful and buoyant. She will still want to compete with you, but these competitions will lose their seriousness and turn into games.
8) She will praise you
An Aries woman in love at this stage will be as lavish with her praise as she was stingy with it in earlier stages. She will shower you with compliments and brag about you to everyone around her.
An Aries woman wants only the best, so if she is in love with you, you must be the best! She has tested you and found you worthy, and she will be generous in giving you honors for this!
9) She will give you gifts
An Aries woman in love is generous and magnanimous. She will want to do things for you and give you gifts. These gifts will usually be big and dramatic, but they may not be anything that you actually want.
Of all signs, Aries has the most trouble in understanding the wants and needs of others, and they are notoriously bad gift-givers. When buying clothes, they rarely get the size right. They do not take the time to think about what might be useful to you.
In most cases, honesty is the best policy with Aries, but this is an exception. If you in any way let on that you may not have liked the gift or found anything wrong with it, she will be devastated. All of the light will go out of her eyes.
It is best to just smile and say thank you. She really was trying to please you, and this is one of the signs an Aries woman likes you.
Do not worry, though, she very likely will not remember the gift later on, so you are free to quietly exchange or return the gift after a short time has passed.
Commitment - Signs an Aries Woman Wants to be With You for a Long Time
The final stage of a relationship is a long term commitment and is governed by the 7th House. The 7th House from Aries is Libra. When an Aries woman is ready to settle down for the long term, she will soften a lot.
Here are the signs an Aries woman likes you enough to share her life with you.
10) She will show her femininity
Most Aries women have a tomboyish quality to them. They tend not to worry about their appearance, and they shy away from overtly feminine trappings.
An Aries woman who is ready to settle down will show you this by softening her look. She may wear a dress or a skirt. She may even wear makeup or jewelry. This will likely feel rather awkward for her, and if you comment, she will become uncharacteristically bashful.
She will soften in other ways as well. Her voice and her face will lose some of their hard edges. She will be a little less argumentative and competitive.
If you see this sudden change in her demeanor, you can be sure that this is one of the signs an Aries woman likes you and wants to be with you a very long time.
11) She will become more polite
Aries has a bad habit of being rather rude. This trait is found in both Aries men and women. They speak what is on their mind, and they do not think before they speak.
When an Aries woman is ready for a long term commitment, however, she will become more polite and courteous. This is because you have earned her respect.
She will remember to say "please" and "thank you." She may even ask you, rather than tell you, things that she wants or wants to do.
When she sees you as a life partner, her speech will be less combative, and she will be less likely to interrupt you when you speak.
12) She will let you lead sometimes
If you have reached this stage with an Aries women, she will have developed a deep admiration for you. She will trust that you are competent and strong.
When this happens, she will be able to let go of her need to be in constant control. She will see you as an equal partner, and she will trust your opinion. She will even defer to your advice.
Surprisingly, Aries women do marry, and once she has softened, an Aries woman will appreciate it if you take the lead and propose. She will be amazingly cooperative with your ideas and suggestions regarding the wedding.
The trappings of the wedding will not be very important to her; it is being with you that will matter.
On the other hand, if you do not want to marry, she will generally be ok with a more unconventional arrangement as well.
Once she has made a commitment to you in her heart, any legal or ceremonial considerations are usually irrelevant to her. She will be happy to go along with whatever you want in this matter.
An Aries woman is quite a handful. She is competent and courageous, and she never shies away from a challenge.
At first, she will fiercely resist any advances on your part, and will treat you as an enemy rather than as a potential partner.
When you have proved you are worthy and have won her heart, however, she soften into a loving companion. Her loyalty and devotion will be just as fierce as her initial resistance had been.
Watch for these signs an Aries woman likes you. What do you think, does your Aries woman show she likes you in these ways?
