Aries compatibility with other signs

Aries – what signs are compatible to the leader?

Aries (March 21 – April 20) compatibility with other signs.Almost all of us have heard about zodiac and astrology at one point or another. The zodiac astrology has been part of human culture for as long as men and women of all ages, races, and of different religious views can remember.

Though a lot of debate can certainly spring up from various religious sects and spiritual groups about the proper use and the misuse of the zodiac astrological signs, we as a human species must try to remember that not only did the zodiac and astrology contribute a huge amount of inspiration to a lot of different people throughout the ages, but it has also provided a certain amount of explanation to certain behavior and thinking that most men and women have been struggling to find answers for.

While astrological signs vary from culture to culture, the most commonly known signs had its origins from the zodiac.  The zodiac clearly originated from the era of sun worship, a time when all of our ancestors believe that the sun is the center of the universe and is one of the most important deities that answer their prayers. We are well past the stage when we all thought that the sun was a god, but it clearly left its impact enough for people of the ancient world to devise the astrological signs that we know of today.

The zodiac can also be viewed as a compatibility wheel or chart, in that it matches certain types of personalities based on certain aspects of a particular sign, its governing astrological factors and even its corresponding elements.

The first sign of the zodiac, Aries, is considered to be the sign which has the most powerful expression of energy and creativity. Because Aries is the first sign, it makes perfect sense for us to focus on this “leader sign” and how it relates to the other signs, what signs most agree with it and disagree with it, how it acts when it interacts with certain signs and all other interesting information that can provide us a deeper understanding of the astrological zodiac signs. But before all that, we must first know the entire roster of the zodiac signs and all of their brief characteristics.

Signs of the Zodiac

The astrological zodiac signs are basically a way for us to understand an individual’s behavior, expression and personality types, each according to the day and month of the year an individual was born. There are currently twelve known astrological signs, each with its unique name, period of birth, assigned planets and other factors that are used by astrologers to determine a personality of an individual down to its last details. So, what are the signs of the zodiac?

  1. ARIES
  5. LEO
  6. VIRGO
  7. LIBRA
  12. PISCES

Before we discuss what others signs are best for compatibly with Aries, let’s take a more detailed look at the personality traits of individuals under the sign of Aries.

Aries – The First Sign

Being born under the dominating element of Fire, Arians are definitely individuals with fiery traits. The most defining characteristics of people born under Aries are that they are definitely competitive individuals, with a high level of self-assurance, confidence and courage. Unfortunately, this also means that they are very impulsive individuals, meaning that they have a tendency to be very spontaneous and unpredictable. Moreover, being highly competitive means that the other signs might look at Arians as being too strong in personality, and might prove to be too much of a challenge for them.

Generally speaking and if we base the personality compatibilities through the elements alone, Aries is highly compatible with signs which has similar dominating fire elements, and these are Sagittarius and Leo. Air is an element which fans fire, causing it to burn a lot brighter and hotter, so do the other Air elements of Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. The Earth and the Water elements do not fare better than each other, because these elements are known to put out Fire. Signs under Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo and Cancer all fall in the lowest compatibility areas when it comes to Aries.

ARIES – relationships and compatible signs

Relationships and compatible signs

Zodiac and astrology is completely defined by its signs and their relationship with each other. It is quite impossible for a sign to be compatible to all of the other signs, as it is impossible for a sign to be incompatible to all of the signs. You can find below a general outline of Aries and its compatibility chart as compared to the other horoscope zodiac signs as well as itself:

Aries compatibility chart



Out of all the astrological signs of the zodiac, Aries is highly compatible with the following astrological signs: Leo and Sagittarius and to a lesser extent Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. Aries is also quite compatible with its own sign, which is quite a rare case, considering that most of the zodiac signs are quite not compatible when paired with their own signs.

ARIES compatibility with Aries (March 21 – April 20)


Aries is the first sign of the zodiac astrology, which clearly means it is born to be a leader. Everyone born in the periods of March 21 to April 20 are under this sign. “Aries” can actually be translated to the English name “The Ram”. Its dominating planet is Mars and Fire is its element (which explains the hot-headedness of the individuals born under this sign).

If you are born under the Fire sign of Aries, then you best not stray far from the flock. Aries is completely compatible with itself. While the phrase “fight fire with fire” might ring a bell here, in this particular instance it serves as a catalyst instead of a retardant. Fire and fire definitely tends to burn brighter in this case, as two strong personalities seem to complement each other perfectly and seamlessly. They bounce off each other’s love for competition, and understand each other when they try their best to win at everything. Because they both love to compete, they both desire to be the best at what they do, and they make each other better in the process. Aries as a sign tends to be always on the go, and in this case it suits the circumstance because individuals that are both Arians hate to be tied down and will work with each other to be able to get out and be mobile again. This combination is clearly designed to burn brighter and hotter, and is clearly a perfect match.

ARIES compatibility with Leo (July 23 – August 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Compatible

While Arians are definitely born to be leaders, individuals born on the dates of July 23 to August 22 are considered to be “natural born leaders”. But while they may contend with the leadership capabilities, it is important to know that their sign translates to “The Lion” and are clearly dominated by the Sun and Fire elements.

“The Ram” and “The Lion” are both under the fire signs and both are regarded as noble creatures. Aries is completely compatible with all of the other fire signs and the relationship with Leo a clear proof of this. Both signs are born to lead, and it is in that aspect that they develop a unique and complete respect of one another.  Their methods of communication gravitate to severe respect for each other’s skills and capabilities, as well as feeding off each other’s ego and the need to lead. They are both outgoing, and being leaders are quite outspoken, so they communicate well with each other by giving way to each other’s thoughts and ideas. A hint of warning though: because both of these signs have too much in common, it is important for each sign to know when to let the other one win, since both of their strong personalities might result in a heavy clash of egos.

ARIES compatibility with Sagittarius (November 22 – December 1)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Compatible

Being tactless might be the defining characteristic of individuals born under Sagittarius. Born on November 22 to December 1, they are governed by fire and have Jupiter as their ruling planet.

As mentioned earlier, Aries is really great when it comes to relationships with other fire signs. Sagittarius is a clear indication of having a lot in common with Aries. The most defining characteristic of Sagittarius is being impatient, while Aries tends to be quite assertive and dominating. The love of Sagittarius of travel and meeting new people as well as exploring new cities and cultures clearly can hold the interest of Aries, especially since Aries is well-known to be of outgoing in nature. Both of these signs also love outdoor activities and sports and are very well competitive in such activities when the occasion calls for it. Basically, Aries and Sagittarius have a lot in common, and their only problem will be from the impatient aspect of the Sagittarius dominated by the assertiveness of Aries when it comes to certain things.

ARIES compatibility with Aquarius (January 20 – February 19)


You are born under the sign or Aquarius if you have a birthday that falls between January 20 to February 19, so people whose birthdays fall on Valentine’s Day are certainly Aquarians. Their ruling planet is Uranus and their element is water.

 Generally speaking, Aquarius is known as a “male sign”. While direct relationship with the other aspects of the sign seems to vary, this seems to prove quite useful when it comes to the relationship with Aries, because the “fire” personality of Aries seems to agree with the “male” personality of Aquarius. Both signs are also well known for their extreme loyalty, so a relationship between the two signs will be very smooth and not riddled with a lot of complications. What is most fascinating is their extreme love for each other’s matching visions: because they both seem to share the same beliefs both in the past and the future. It is their core beliefs that allow them both to shine and to live for the future.

ARIES compatibility with Gemini (May 21 – June 20)


You are born under Gemini if you have a birthday that falls between May 21 up to June 20. Gemini is also known as “The Twins”. Known as the sign influenced by Air and Mercury, it is the sign that is most associated with adaptability to change.

The defining characteristic in the relationship between Aries and Gemini is their deep love for passionate arguments, not necessarily against each other, but for each other. They understand each other’s language; therefore they can clearly speak to one another aggressively and heatedly without one getting offended by the other. It is also important to note that the “air” sign of Gemini agrees with the “fire” sign of Aries, so any sign of immediate conflict might be quickly resolved using each other’s love for communication.

ARIES compatibility with Libra (September 23 – October 22)


The air influenced Librans are born on September 23 to October 22 and have Venus as their ruling planet. Because the translation of the name Libra means “The Scales”, this sign is oftentimes associated with truth and justice.

Opposites attract, and that is clearly the case with both of these signs. Libra and Aries are polar opposites of one another: one is inspiring and is very calm when it comes to certain things; the other is very aggressive and dominating. One thing that works well in this relationship is that for the most part, Aries tends to be influenced by the calming nature of Libra, and this clearly works well for both parties. Unfortunately because Aries is the dominating type, there are times when Aries treats Libra not like a partner but more of a subordinate. This can clearly peeve Libra and might cause a little argument with how the Arian is treating the Libran.


So what others signs are best for compatibly with Aries? Aside from the signs mentioned above, there are none. The signs of Pisces, Scorpio and Taurus does not fare well when it comes to being compatible with Aries.  At the bottom of the list, the signs that are definitely incompatible with Aries are Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn.

ARIES compatibility with Pisces (February 20 – March 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Being born on February 20 to March 20 makes your sign Pisces, also known as “The Fish”. The dominating element is water (obviously) and the ruling planet is Neptune, or Poseidon in Greek Literature – God of the Sea.

Water and fire do not mix, and the result can be either fire giving up on water of fire boiling water to the point of nothingness. That is the sort of relationship that you can expect from Pisces and Aries. Although at first glance, you might think that these two signs cannot play well together, in some very rare instances they may actually work. The dominating trait of Pisces is being kind-hearted and calm, unlike the bull-headedness and assertive nature of Aries. The relationship between the two might still work, if only the Arian can take a step back and be influenced by the kind nature of the Piscean.

ARIES compatibility with Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

You are considered a Scorpio, or “The Scorpion”, if you are born between October 23 to November 21. The sign’s element is water and the ruling planet is Pluto.

Of all of the signs and their possible relationship with each other, treading on dangerous waters can seem like a possibility. The aggressiveness of Aries seems to be put on hold when dealing with a Scorpio however, because a Scorpio’s dominating trait is being very easily offended and unforgiving – a trait that is clear from the start to Aries. The usual trait of an Arian to “charge full steam ahead” will seem to stop momentarily in order to accommodate a Scorpio. Unfortunately, the very nature of Aries is not to be tied down, so any compatibility that the Arian may have worked on might be short-lived especially if the Scorpio will take offense to the seemingly aggressive nature of the Arian.

ARIES compatibility with Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Taurus is also known as “The Bull”. Individuals born under this sign are usually known for their stability and resistance to change. Persons with birthdates between April 21 to May 20 are born under this sign, which is a sign dominated by Venus and influenced by the element of Earth.

While the earth and fire elements of Taurus and Aries seem to be at odds with each other, it might be possible to make the relationship between the signs work. Granted, it might take a lot of effort for the signs to work well with each other, but it is entirely possible. Taurus is known to be very clingy when it comes to relationships, and this might bother Aries to a certain extent, especially based on the free-spirited nature of the latter. Taurus is also known to be completely stubborn, and that is another trait that will seem to drive the aggressive and dominating nature of Aries crazy. If Aries can be patient enough with a Taurus and learn to deal with the seeming stubbornness of “The Bull”, then a smooth sailing relationship is entirely plausible.

ARIES compatibility with Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Incompatible

Individuals born under the sign of “The Crab” have birthdates between June 21 to July 22. Their element is water and their ruling planet is the Moon.

There can be no other signs that are opposite in interests than Cancer and Aries. While Aries loves to be outdoors and spend time doing outdoor activities, Cancer is basically a “home body” and loves to stay indoors.  This indoor loving trait of a Cancer will probably be problematic, and if Aries will point this out in a seemingly aggressive way, then Aries will then have to deal with the oversensitive nature of Cancer. This might be a difficult relationship to keep intact, but can still work if Aries can control being aggressive and dominating and give up the love of outdoors for the quiet of the indoors.

ARIES compatibility with Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Incompatible

People born from August 23 to September 22 are known to be highly adaptable to everything. Their sign is also known as “The Virgin”. They are born under the planet of Mercury and have Earth as their element.

This is probably the most perfectly imperfect of all the signs. Virgo loves the aggressive and impulsive nature of Aries, and is clearly attracted by it. Unfortunately for Virgo, this might prove to be too much, as the dominating trait of Virgo is to look for security and stability that cannot be provided by Aries. Virgo is also very picky and critical when it comes to minute details, things that do not necessarily matter to Aries. These differences are what drive each of these signs away from one another, but also are the traits that make them respect each other. Understanding and patience is what is needed to make this pairing work, but if they clear up their differences this can be a really strong pairing.

ARIES compatibility with Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Incompatible

Capricorn is “The sea-goat”, and if you are born between December 22 to January 19, expect to be dominated by Earth and the planet Saturn.

The animals that represent both Capricorn (The Goat) and Aries (The Ram) are both mountain dwellers. While both of these animals are very different in nature, they do spend a lot of space respecting each other even though they have completely different statures. While Aries can be completely impulsive, Capricorn can be overly cautious when it comes to certain things and can definitely slow down the fast nature of Aries. The good thing about this is that if Aries is willing to learn a lot from Capricorn, then it will certainly work. Capricorn can teach Aries a lot about stability and security, especially if Aries wants to curb the dominating trait of being impulsive that is common to Arians.

So there you have it, the zodiac compatibility summaries with Aries in the center. This will certainly provide you with a lot of insight as to what the different signs strengths and weaknesses are in terms of relationships.  While this is clearly treading in the realm of belief and faith, at the end of the day this is designed only to be a general guideline, and never as rigid rules. As proof: I know a couple who is happily married right now, with three kids and living in the land down under, one is under the sign of Aries and one is born under Virgo. Being that the two signs are supposed to be “highly incompatible”, it is a clear indication that people still have complete power over their fate, and are ultimately the masters of their destinies.
