So, which zodiac signs is Aries compatible with?

There are the four astrological signs that make the best matches for an Aries.

1. Aries (March 20 - April 19)

If you're an Aries man looking to date an Aries woman, you're about to meet your match. Aries-Aries relationships can be very powerful. Both of you are Rams who are independent and impulsive. As a couple, this doesn't change; in fact, it magnifies. 

There will be times when you drain each other, and other times when you'll feed each other's energy. There's a good chance that your romance will turn into a love/hate relationship, but that isn’t always a bad thing.

Since both of you are aggressive and explosive when it comes to expressing your emotions, you will clash when your opinions are unaligned. In the best of situations, the two of you are like a love drug to each other, but in a worst-case scenario, each of you will feed off the other’s aggression. 

Neither of you will rush into making a commit. So, this allows room for mutual freedom which you both value. Since both of you are big on teamwork, this can get you through an argument or conflict.

2. Gemini (May 20 - June 20)

If you're a Gemini male interested in winning over an Aries woman's heart, get ready for the best relationship you've ever had. The great thing about an Aries-Gemini pairing is that they are strongly compatible.

A Gemini loves when someone is interested in taking turns leading. An Aries woman loves someone willing to overlook her flaws in the process. Geminis aren't easily offended, so a strong Aries personality doesn't come across as aggressive behavior.

Geminis are known to have thick-skin and can brush off comments that would otherwise easily offend others. This works out well since Aries loves to speak her mind.

Both of partners value communication. As individuals, you both are always on the lookout for something new and exciting — and this works out well in a romantic relationship. The two of you will share an ongoing stream of new ideas, making for a fun and adventurous relationship.

3. Leo (July 22 - August 22)

If you're a Leo male attracted to an Aries woman, your heart is about to be won over. A Leo-Aries match makes for a soulful love connection. As a Leo male, chances are you are independent. An Aries woman will appreciate your openness and free-spiritedness.

Both of you enjoy leading others. This brings out a healthy competition between the two of you. You’ll feed off of each other’s creativity and ambition without feeling intimidated by the other.

She'll be the impulsive one in the relationship, but as a partner, you will balance that out nicely with your excellent organizational skills. She won’t have to worry about hurting your feelings since you aren't the type to hold grudges.

What’s even better is that an Aries woman loves to flirt and compliment her partner. You'll have a hard time saying no to her which will make her happy.

4. Sagittarius (November 21 - December 21)

If you're a Sagittarius male interested in an Aries woman, be prepared to swoon. An Aries-Sagittarius match is like bread and butter, or peanut butter and jelly. It's a perfect pairing.

An Aries woman has much in common with a Sagittarius male, and this makes for a great relationship match. You’re both curious, spontaneous, and loving. Just when she feels like there’s no one who can keep up with her, you will prove her wrong.

As a Sagittarius, you enjoy an adventure. She will appreciate your leadership and feel inspired by you. You both aren’t in a rush to commit, so this will make it easier for the two of you to enjoy each other’s company.

A Sagittarius is intellectual and mental, while an Aries is action-oriented, but she loves to be intrigued. This will make for a nice balance in a relationship, especially during times of trouble.

Which zodiac signs is Aries least compatible with?

Not everyone can love an Aries the way she needs to be cared for. A few might find her strong personality traits attractive, but just too much to handle for the long haul. These zodiac signs will have the most personality conflicts with Aries in a love match:

1. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

If you're a Taurus male wanting to date an Aries woman, you might want to test things out as friends first. An Aries-Taurus match might start off well, but end with a lot of hurt feelings. Aries and Taurus are so opposite from each other that they will bump heads all the time.

One of the biggest issues that will turn an Aries off, and make a Taurus shutdown, is his refusal to move at her pace. He will want to stop and smell the roses. She will want to hunt for the next big adventure.

You’re also both stubborn. But her strong will disdains compromise. Although you might be willing to meet halfway, she won't be willing. 

You’re both comfortable at your own pace, but since her speed is fast and yours will never be fast enough for her, you'll get your feelings hurt. A Taurus won’t appreciate her demanding and aggressive personality. And she'll grow tired of trying to get you to keep up with her.

2. Cancer (June 20 - July 22)

If you're a Cancer male looking to date an Aries woman, you might want to reconsider it. An Aries-Cancer match may have elements of romance, but in the end, the romance can't thrive.

You have a reputation as being sensitive and easily offended. She has an insensitivity streak. You'll grow tired of her craving for adventure because you like to build your life around family and the home. 

As a Cancer male, you are family-oriented. An Aries woman likes to make big plans and sometimes family can get in the way. You'll need someone to love you even if you're moody. She will find it difficult to tolerate your constant emotional needs.

Another big issue is that she fears being tied down in a relationship. You fear abandonment and hate being alone. Most Aries struggle to be sensitive to this, so a love match just isn't in the stars.

3. Pisces (February 18 - March 20)

If you're a Pisces male who wants to date an Aries woman, you may want to think things through. An Aries-Pisces love match may make even the most resilient fish feel like he's drowning in his own love pond!

She has thick skin. But her lack of sensitivity can make even the most patient Pisces sensitive. She smells vulnerability and walks all over it. This will be a big problem for you. One wrong word or criticism can destroy your self-esteem. She doesn’t want to be responsible for building that back up when she's offended you.

She enjoys competition and playfulness. But the way she goes about it might make you feel like she's being mean intentionally. 

As a couple, there will be many misunderstandings and hurt feelings. Pisces makes a great love partner, but maybe the love he has to give is perfect for someone else, not an Aries woman.

What does Aries need in a relationship to make it work?

Aries is conquered by Mars. This means that she not only craves but needs to experience the thrill of the chase. She isn't someone who enjoys nights home slumped on the couch watching sitcoms. She needs goals to reach and dreams to pursue.

For an Aries woman, a partner who enjoys being spontaneous and coming up with last minute plans is the ideal love match. She prefers to be with someone who is action-oriented and doesn’t overthink things.  

Even though she's a leader, she loves romance and chivalry. It may be true that expressing emotions doesn't come naturally to her, she still wants to know that she's appreciated and valued.

What does the Aries personality bring to a relationship?

You won’t have to worry about dishonesty with an Aries because she will always be direct and upfront with you about anything. Although she can be aggressive and fast-paced, the excitement from dating her will override those character flaws.

You’ll appreciate her for being protective and courageous. You’ll know that you can feel safe with her because of her integrity.

Where is the best place to meet an Aries woman?

Being an Aries woman, she will want a man who’s just as independent and impulsive as she is. A businessman, or better yet, a CEO, is her ideal type. She wants someone who’s dominating and likes to be a leader.

Aries women love adventure and thrill-seeking. So, her lifestyle often involves the great outdoors, sports, and places where she can talk to different people.

You'll likely meet her at a bar, or at a nightclub on the dance floor. She can also be found at networking events.

How can you romance an Aries woman?

Aries women are known for their optimism and high energy. She needs someone who can continue to build her up in that aspect and encourage her to remain motivated.

The perfect partner for an Aries will be someone who displays as much enthusiasm and dedication as she does.

An Aries woman is a mellow romantic. She doesn’t need to be showered with gifts or taken out for expensive meals. She values her own space, so you'll need to be the type of partner who has a steady job and interests outside of your relationship.

When is Aries ready for love?

Being as independent as she is, an Aries woman is not in a hurry to start a long-term relationship. She’s interested in starting one at some point, but it’s best for her to enhance her adventurous side for as long as she can. Once she becomes interested in somebody, she’ll be patient in getting to know him.

Loving an Aries woman requires a lot of patience and understanding, so she’ll want to make sure that her love interest meets those requirements. An ideal time period for an Aries woman to start settling would probably be late 20s to early 30s, after she’s taken time to truly embrace and explore her ambition. 

What makes the Aries personality so irresistible?

She's the most adventurous of the zodiac signs! An Aries woman is always down for trying something new and will turn a dull moment into something exciting.

Aries are also positive by nature. She will have the ability to easily slide into any social setting without being too awkward. What’s also great about an Aries woman is that she’s independent and able to take care of herself.

How can you make an Aries truly happy?

Aries has to be first at everything she does, and that includes first in your attention. If you’re dating an Aries woman, you’ll want to maintain excitement and freshness in the relationship. You’re likely to gain her interest by suggesting new date ideas or taking her somewhere she’s never been before.

Aries women are also very protective by nature. Let her be the hero by exposing your vulnerability and letting her come to your rescue. Your Aries woman will love that you’re not afraid to show a little bit of neediness.

An Aries woman enjoys being creative. If she doesn’t have that creative outlet, there will be a disaster. In other words, boring people is Aries' pet peeve. She can also be very sensitive. If you’re someone who’s easily angered and impatient, an Aries woman might not be the right choice for you.

How do you make an Aries fall in love with you?

An Aries woman enjoys the thrill of the chase, so the best way to get her attention would be to play hard to get. Not only will this spark her interest, but it will satisfy her need for competition.

Make sure you give her the chance to catch you because when she does, you’ll feel like a trophy to her. If not, she’ll more than likely get discouraged and move on to a new chase.
