If you've got an Aries placement in your big three (or are just crushing on someone with one), knowing what the Aries-compatible signs are is crucial for understanding current and future relationships.

But before we get into it, let me just say that astrology isn't designed to make tough decisions for you. The practice is to be used as nothing more than a guide. So don't go breaking up with bae because the stars say that you're not compatible.

Understanding zodiac sign compatibility 

Deciphering the specifics of your sign in love isn't the straightforward prediction you may think of it as. There are many factors to consider in order for a reading to be accurate. Not only do we defer to the zodiac signs, but to the planets, their aspects (or positional relationships), and houses in which they fall, just to name a few. So for those trying to uncover the romantic side of themselves or someone else, you’ll have to consider more than just the sun sign.

Six major considerations for zodiac compatibility are the sun sign, the rising sign, the moon sign, the Venus sign, and Mercury and Mars signs. These luminaries are a few of the biggest keys to unlocking your immediate and lasting compatibility. To help you understand what all of this means, we've provided some basic explanations of astrological definitions below. We've also gone as far as interpreting how each of these factors can be expressed while in the sign of Aries.

Aries expressed through the zodiac

The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is a leader. And an intense one at that. Symbolized by The Ram, you can consider yourself an Aries if you can’t get through a game of Uno without starting a war or if you were born between March 21st and April 19th.

Aries is a fire sign and its ruling planet is Mars. This is why people describe Aries-ruled people as being aggressive, competitive, and confident. People born under this sign aren't afraid of anything, and they pride themselves on their unrelenting determination. Aries people may come off as a scary bunch, but in reality, this fire sign has one of the friendliest dispositions in the Zodiac and mostly gets along with everyone. So if you're scared of their strength, that says more about you than them.

However, understanding that their on-the-go personality does not like to get bogged down by unnecessary setbacks will most definitely help any relationship along. When it comes to romance, Aries don't speak, they just do. Their projected air of confidence translates to sex appeal and their ability to take what they want makes them oh-so desirable. People want people who know what they want and how to get it. And when an Aries finds someone they want to make theirs, they will do anything to get them. Aries-influenced people thoroughly enjoy the chase. But once their prize has been won, their partner must be able to keep them interested. Aries (like fire signs in general) don't take well to boring routines. So if you become one, Aries will leave as fast as they came.

Sun in Aries

Your sun sign is based on the month you were born. This is what people are usually referring to when they make comments like "I'm an Aries." The sun sign usually determines your ego, identity, and sense of self. This sign is the core of who you are and most likely dictates your priorities and how you live your life. Sun sign compatibility is what people mean when they say things like "the Britney and Justin denim 'fit is classic Sagittarius/Aquarius pairing!"

People born under an Aries sun are usually stereotyped as competitive, natural-born leaders that are overly-passionate. But this is just because when the sun is in Aries it's exalted, so it has the opportunity to be decisive and direct.

Ascendent in Aries

Rising sign compatibility is one of the most often overlooked factors by baby astrologers. This mistake is a fatal flaw if you ask me because your rising sign offers more detailed intricacies about you than your sun sign. Your rising sign, or “ascendant sign," is determined by the sign that falls in your first house. A lot of people interpret this sign as the “mask” you wear (or the first impression that you make with people). But that's not completely accurate. The rising sign is indicative of the way you carry yourself and your personality, so it essentially makes up who you are on the surface.

When you read a horoscope, you should be reading for your Ascendant (or rising sign). This is because your Ascendant falls in or on the cusp of your first house, which lays out how the rest of your chart looks. Sun sign-focused astrology wasn't around until R.H. Naylor decided newspapers needed a more simplified system in 1930. And as you may or may not know, the practice of astrology is much, much older than that. That said, reading for your sun sign isn't completely wrong but it's not as accurate of a forecast as reading for your Ascendant.

Aries rising people tend to be enthusiastic, ambitious, and maybe even a bit of an instigator. These people tend to crave independence because they need all the freedom they can get to expel excess energy.

Moon in Aries

The moon sign is determined by the position of the moon at the time you were born. It represents your moods, emotions, and inner needs and is most connected with your true nature. This sign dictates your intuition and self-talk. A lot of times people find their moon sign to be the one they identify with the most.

Aries moons are impatient, quick-to-react, and tend to think in passionate ideals which can cause them to be combative. When an Aries moon doesn't get their way it will go one of two ways––the first being them asserting their argument and refusing to back down, and the other giving a relentless and hostile cold shoulder until someone else gives in. Neither is enjoyable.

Venus in Aries

Your Venus sign is the zodiac sign that the planet Venus was in at the time of your birth. It dictates your love language and affection, as well as your relationship with art and nature. This sign shows how you most likely express and understand love. It can also determine what kind of partner you will be most attracted to by influencing what traits you find to be admirable and attractive.

If your venus is in Aries, you are passionate, fiery, and flirty. You love the chase and probably fall in love fast (and hard). You need someone able to match this energy, someone capable of keeping up with you and entertaining you.

Mars in Aries

Your Mars sign is the zodiac sign that the planet Mars was in at the time of your birth. Mars' impact can be sketched as the strategizer. This planet determines how you deal with anger, power, assertion, and breakups. Mars is also representative of your sex life and how you pursue goals. When trying to determine sexual compatibility, your sign in Mars is extremely influential. 

Aries is the domicile of Mars, meaning the planet is "at home" here. It's what makes people with Mars in Aries so action-oriented. They're always searching for new ways to excite themselves, can be rather hot-headed, and have a tendency to do first and think later. Which, in terms of a relationship, may be difficult for some to accept.

Mercury in Aries

The sign Mercury was in at the time you were born decides your communication style, how you get from Point A to Point B, and your overall nature. Are you loud? Soft-spoken? Easily overwhelmed? Blame this planet. Mercury is also responsible for our thought processes, self-talk, and habits.

People who have Mercury in Aries are innovators. They're out-of-the-box, quick thinkers, and made for pioneering projects. Aries Mercury people have the tendency to say what they mean and mean what they say, so don't try to beat around the bush with them. Not only will they call you out, but they'll hate you for it.

Aries most compatible signs: What sun signs are an Aries' best match?

Thanks to Aries' good nature, there aren't many signs that these folks wouldn't be compatible with. However, for an Aries looking to fall in lasting love, there are four signs that we would consider being the most compatible.

Aries match up beautifully with their fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius thanks to their strong personalities and high-spirited nature. That said, because Aries and Leos understand what the other person needs so well, they should be careful not to become co-dependent. Y'all may be a match made in heaven, but you also have the tendency to feed each other's bad habits.

The oh-so-relatable air signs Gemini and Aquarius shouldn't count themselves out of the race either. Gemini's excitable energy matches Aries' love for fun and adventure, while Aquarius' unique trendsetting ways are enough to spark an everlasting interest and love.

Aries love compatibility: How does it break down across the solar zodiac?

Gemini + Aries

Aries and Gemini can hit it off so intensely that they may start looking to settle down immediately. But it would benefit them to slow their roll and take stock of their respective outlooks on life and what they expect from the other. Both of these signs are impulsive and adventurous, resulting in quick and sometimes rash decisions. While this can manifest itself into less than ideal situations, it's also the glue that holds these two together. Deeper than anything else in their relationship is the shared love of the unknown and constant hunger for new and exciting things.

At the relationship’s beginning, these two signs can see each other as the end all be all. But when things get heavy and the dust starts to settle, if the Gemini and Aries do not hold the same worldview or maturity level, they might very well find themselves on opposing sides. While the opportunity for a good argument is never turned down by either sign, the straightforward face of the Aries might find that the ever-changing personality of the Gemini lacks sincerity. This is not to say that a Gemini-Aries pairing is bound to fail! The devil is in the details, people.

This particular pair can be successful if Gemini can teach its Aries partner to have an open line of communication and revel in what they bring to the table. Conversely, if Aries can teach Gemini to see beyond the surface level and understand that trust might take a little longer to build, they will find that their shared love of adventure and exploration will win out in the end.


Leo + Aries

An Aries and Leo in love can be a match made in heaven, but it can also go so wrong. Fire signs usually meld well with other fire signs, which is true here. The only aside being that these two can also heighten each others' negative traits. Taking Aries' aggressively direct nature and Leo's self-centeredness into consideration, the pair can go from love-dovey to co-dependent and toxic. Trouble also comes when these two signs start to step on each other's toes. Friendly competition is one thing, but these two can take it to new levels. And when their competitive nature starts to manifest itself in each other's personal lives, at work or public functions, someone will leave with a bruised ego.

Their saving grace is their identical emotional outlook. It won't be hard for them to come to an understanding when problems arise, as long as both of them set their egos to the side and come to the table ready to make amends and move on. Self-awareness is key!

When the bold and impulsive Aries meets the outgoing and energetic Leo with style, they can conquer whatever lies in their path. Positives to this matchup will be the ability to make any conversation interesting and interest in socializing. Politics, work, business, there's nothing these two can't make stimulating! This doesn't mean that all Aries and Leo pairs will see eye-to-eye, but they will appreciate each other's intellectual and social abilities.

Since both of these signs are independent by nature, it's important that they have separation in their daily lives to give each other room to breathe.


Sagittarius + Aries

Another fire sign pair, Sagittarius and Aries complement each other beautifully. The usually serious Aries finds release in the liberated, optimistic Sagittarius. This manifests perfectly in their sex life. Aries may approach a sexual situation wearing passion as blinders, Sagittarius has the ability to loosen them with their own equally passionate ways. This allows for exploration and ease of intimacy and sensuality. Communication and intellect are not a problem here, which sets up a great foundation. The ability to meet each other on any playing field and leave in high spirits might just be enough to sustain a relationship, even if it happens to be devoid of sexual tension.

However, it's important to make sure that the relationship is weighed evenly in both of these signs' minds. While Aries and Sagittarius pretty much see the world similarly, the driven and sometimes singular-minded Aries could be put off if its partner's values are not aligned. Be cautious of differing beliefs, as the Sagittarius is deeply rooted in their own convictions and when paired with the seldomly unwavering Aries, can be caught in a stalemate with no resolution in sight. If these two can acknowledge that their differences should be accepted instead of tweaked, there’s nothing they cannot do. Respected honesty is the best policy for these two.


Aquarius + Aries

An Aquarius-Aries match is an interesting one. These two signs come together where it matters, but have vast faults to overcome in order to make their relationship work. Support comes easily with these two, as they both have the stamina to follow each other through each new adventure. However, when it comes to connecting emotionally there can be a huge disconnect.

Aries' true nature is that of a passionate (albeit, intense) fire sign. This may not bode well when met with the calm, cool, and flighty air sign Aquarius. Aquarians' nature can be misinterpreted as a lack of affection which will leave both out in the cold. However, if Aries can bring themselves to understand their Aquarius partner's aloof and analytical mindset, perhaps this gap can be bridged. If either sign finds themselves in need of emotional caressing, channeling it into a hobby or finding a therapist could be the reset button that fills each of their tanks.
