Which are the most compatible signs Aries should surround themselves with in order to gain the most from their relationships? The answers may surprise you.

Compatible Signs Aries Should Consider

It's always nice when bonds form spontaneously, but it doesn't hurt to hedge your bet by seeking out your most compatible signs as companions. Aries sun signs tend to be the most compatible with the following sun signs.

Sagittarius-Aries

The archer is one of the most compatible signs Aries should consider when searching out relationships that will bear fruit. Sagittarians share a certain love of freedom with Aries that will help the two of them conquer new territory together.

Leo-Aries

Leo is the loveable center of attention and typically the life of the party, but the lion can also be courageous, bold, and powerful. Aries and Leo share a gregarious nature that helps them walk life's path in sync. They may vie occasionally to see which one leads the way, but all things considered, they share a great capacity for compatibility.

"Leo isn't just 'lovable'; he's not a housecat. He's dynamic, bold, courageous, aggressive, and fierce." - Reader comment from ThePaganSun

Aquarius-Aries

Aquarius' need for personal space dovetails nicely with Aries' love of freedom. This doesn't mean that the ram and the water bearer can't forge a deep bond; in fact, quite the opposite. Their mutual respect for one another's needs and space leaves room for both to grow on their own and together.

Gemini-Aries

The twins are known for their adaptability, a trait that easily follows Aries' need to lead their closest companions down new paths. Geminis are also celebrated for their personal charm and intellect, traits the discerning ram is also capable of fully appreciating.

Aries-Aries

Ram to ram relationships also stand a great chance of success, but this hinges on one crucial fact: how well the ram likes his or her own self. Aries will see many of their own strongest qualities reflected in other Aries. Generally speaking, if you're comfortable in your own skin, and you're willing to let the other person take the lead sometimes, an Aries to Aries combination is equally yoked and capable of traveling great distances together.

"I'm an Aries woman and my partner is an Aquarius with strong Aries and Mars in his chart. Though I get along with his ambitious & business sense side (thanks to his Capricorn Moon) most of the time, I'm having hard time with his short temper, impracticality, impatience, impulsiveness & childish ways." - Reader comment from mexicanaespañola1979

Aries and Libra: Opposites Can Attract

That old saying that opposites attract is certainly true. People are often entranced by their polar opposites, and while the novelty of this kind of relationship can bring us together for a time, it can be difficult to bond in the long term. What seems refreshing in the beginning can wear thin and grate on nerves as time goes on. This is true for relationships between Aries and its zodiac opposite Libra.

Optimism Versus Pragmatism

In general, Libras seek balance in their lives, and tend to ignore life's harsher realities by putting their focus on the positive. While these are admirable traits, Aries tend to face life head on in all its facets. Some Aries will find Libra's rosy outlook charming, while others will eventually find it exasperating.

Order Versus Freedom

Libras also love an orderly home life. Aries love of freedom and need for change can leave Libra feeling less than secure.

Compromise Is Necessary

Can this pairing work in the real world? Perhaps, but it will take a lot of work and compromise to sustain it at a level that contents both signs.

Sun Signs With the Lowest Chance for Compatibility With Aries

Some Aries pairings don't stand a good chance of working out.

Capricorn-Aries

Caps tend to be solid as a rock, so in most cases they won't appreciate Aries' capacity for head on collisions, no matter how convincing the ram can be in arguing for his/her position.

Cancer-Aries

Cancers are known for running the gamut of emotions; sometimes thoughtful, sometimes downright hysterical. Aries is typically too straightforward to deal with this type of emotional see-saw for very long, making it difficult for this pairing to maintain a connection.

"I'm a Virgo and my son is Aries. We get along fantastic! He is definitely a headstrong little leader, even as a baby he was domineering." - Reader comment from Mrs. K.

Who Is Aries?

Aries is the leader of the zodiac and therefore has a tendency to lead in all things. People of this sign can even be considered a bit headstrong, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Strong leadership is a wonderful characteristic as long as it is tempered with wisdom and compassion; fortunately both are qualities found in the Aries makeup. Aries personalities are also magnetic, drawing people of all signs to them in droves. Some will eventually be repelled by the ram, while others will settle in for the long run.

The Bigger Picture in Aries Compatibility

Although certain sun signs are naturally more in step with the Aries character, that doesn't mean Aries can't forge successful relationships with the rest of the zodiac. In fact, each person shares characteristics from other signs based on, among other factors, the positions of the sun and moon at birth. If you're willing to search for common ground, as well as tolerate personal differences, you can get along with virtually anyone.
