Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign with an assertive, passionate attitude that anyone around them can feel. When you’re in the same room with an Aries, you may feel magnetically drawn to their larger-than-life presence, eager to soak in their warm energy and enthusiastic spirit.

As we move into Aries season, there is no better time to learn more about how this feisty sign experiences love and which signs will vibrate most effortlessly with vibrant Aries.

It is important to remember, especially when looking into the world of astrological compatibility that we are generally looking at how well two Sun signs (the sign that represents where the Sun was located at the time you were born, and the most well-known of the signs) interact with each other.

While two Sun signs may not be the most compatible together, there are many other signs and aspects within your birth chart that may smooth out any incompatibilities between your Sun signs.

To truly understand the compatibility between yourself and someone else, you would probably need to contact an experienced astrologer and request a synastry report—a report that looks at both of your natal charts and how they interact with one another.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the most compatible and least compatible signs for Aries.

Aries Compatibility

While any signs can learn to get along well with one another, certain signs just seem to vibrate really well together. The most compatible signs for any zodiac sign typically fall within the same Elemental ruler, which for Aries, is Fire.

Most Compatible Matches for Aries

Aries

That’s right, one of the most compatible signs for Aries are fellow Aries!

This union is typically positive and full of enthusiasm, as the buoyant spirit between two Aries will infuse one another. This relationship will experience fireworks, which can be both beautiful and explosive. An Aries-Aries union’s biggest challenge is learning how to contain big emotions and refrain from indulging in impatience and a short-temper.

If you can learn to find an appropriate outlet for all that passion, this relationship will experience joy and connection.

Leo

Leo is a Fixed sign, ruled by Fire.

This is the same Fire that provides Aries with its feisty nature, making these two a great match. Leos are lively, extroverted, passionate, and creative. Leos possess a similar enthusiasm for life, but their spirit is more aligned with socialization than success, with creativity rather than raw ambition.

Leo’s energy is not quite as intense as Aries, allowing for more peace within this union. While Aries might not be able to draw the line when it comes to their passionate emotions, Leo knows when it’s safer and more preferable to back down.

Sagittarius

Mutable Fire sign Sagittarius shares the same optimism and joviality that Leo presents.

An Aries-Sag love union will experience plenty of laughter and joy, as the lightheartedness that Sagittarius possesses helps Aries choose their battles and focus on the positive. Sagittarius helps Aries relax and have a little fun, while Aries helps Sag settle down a focus on serious matters.

A relationship between these two signs will still experience passion, but with a hint of comedy. There is an air of love and light when these signs come together.

Gemini

While two signs sharing the same element are often the most compatible, Air is another element that gets along swimmingly with Fire. Air feeds Fire’s energy, introducing an element that is needed to keep the flames alive.

Gemini is an intellectual sign that matches well with Aries’ smart, driven nature. These two will share deep conversation and a spiritual connection that brings them closer to one another and their path in life.

Least Compatible Signs for Aries

Cancer

Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign that may seem to hold Aries back. Aries feels things passionately, and so does Cancer, but their feelings manifest in very different ways. While Cancer may feel like venting or working through their emotional issues, Aries wants to get out there and find a way to combat them through physical exercise or hard work.

Aries will not likely want to sit around and talk about their feelings, making a Cancer feel isolated or alone in their emotional experience.

Capricorn

Symbolically, Capricorns are represented by the goat, while Aries is associated with the ram: two stubborn animals with horns for butting up against their opponents.

Capricorns are a Mutable Earth sign with their own dreams and desires for success; however, they typically approach this goal through hard work at a slow and steady pace. Aries, on the other hand, goes for what they want most at the moment, rarely slowing down to plan for the future.

The impulsive nature of Aries is enough to make Capricorn feel out of control, while Aries might feel like they’re being held back by Capricorn’s caution.

Embracing Aries’ Intensity

Even if you aren’t the perfect match for Aries, you can still enjoy their passionate, fiery nature.

When you’re around an Aries, you won’t be bored. Their enthusiasm for life penetrates everyone around them, and they have an uncanny ability to make their friends and family feel more alive simply by their presence.

Embrace the intense nature of the Aries for a connection you’ll never forget.
