Aries is ruled by Mars, so they sometimes enjoy a bit of banter with you.

You might not always understand their silly side, but a joke with a little bit of bite goes a long way, especially if it's an inside joke that only the two of you share.


Here are a few things that make an Aries happy, per astrology:

1. Good communication

Listen to what an Aries has to say.

Aries appreciate it when they’re being listened to, especially when they don’t have to ask.

Aries tend to be very passionate and they love it when people listen to those passions as they speak about them.

They also are quite moody, so they would have someone who could listen to them vent about what’s bothering them.

2. Fitness

Do something athletic with them because Aries can be competitive.

Aries are active beings and they love playing sports. Have them play a sport or take them to a sports game and they would be in Heaven.


Aries are very athletic and they enjoy exercising and moving around. They are constantly changing their workout and they like to try new things. Appealing to their athleticism will definitely make their day.

3. Learning

Appeal to their curiosity.

Aries seeks knowledge and they want to learn more about the world around them.

Aries would love to have an engaging conversation about things they don’t know too much about.

They would love to talk about topics they aren’t experts on so that they can learn something new.

When an Aries finds a topic they enjoy learning about, they will obsess over it and they will try to learn everything they can about that topic.

4. Transparency

Honesty is the best policy.

Nothing makes an Aries happier than an honest friend. Aries appreciate honesty and they tend to trust those who are truthful. If you are honest with an Aries, they will be honest with you.

They rather you tell the brutal truth than a bald-faced lie. Once you have built a genuine bond of trust with an Aries, that bond won’t break — at least not by the Aries.

5. Thoughtfulness

It doesn’t hurt to show some compassion.

Your compassion will make the Aries in your life very happy, especially when you display it openly.


Having an Aries in your life will get you an ally who will protect you from an emotional perspective.

Aries can be quite mad with happiness when they feel loved. If their compassion is matched, their happiness will be off the charts.

That type of happiness can be dangerous, especially for those not used to that kind of happiness.

6. Fun

New adventures are exciting to an Aries.

As mentioned before, Aries tend to yearn for new knowledge. They learn by exploring. 

They love to find new places and experience different things.

Aries have an abundance of energy and they tend to burn it off with new hobbies or they go on adventures around the world.


Combined with their curiosity, they might end up in some interesting places.

7. Trying new things

Adrenaline is their middle name.

One of the best ways to make an Aries happy is to pump up their adrenaline. Adrenaline-pumping activities tend to leave Aries with a big smile on their face.

This doesn’t necessarily mean bungee jumping or skydiving, but perhaps a rollercoaster is the best way to go.

Although, you should make sure that they’re not scared of heights; a scared Aries isn’t a happy Aries.

Many Aries tend to ride motorbikes or take on challenges that they may fail just to get the adrenaline rush.
