Aries and Aries (two partners each with the sign Aries) is a fairly unique pairing on a couple of levels, and can be a very solid partnership, as long as you can work as a team and focus your energy and ambitions on external goals, and not let it all dissipate while competing with each other.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
There's a very high chance this will be an explosive love-hate relationship, and unlike most other sign matches it can actually be a good thing.
You're both very independent and impulsive, and you both love a good fight. Whether you admit it to yourself or not, you also enjoy a little chaos and instability in your life. You also grudgingly respect an aggressive sparring partner!
Throw in the high likelihood of explosive make up sex, and you'll each find yourself subconsciously looking forward to those arguments and fights on some level. This match will make it very hard to leave each other without going back. Why?
You're a drug to each other - you'll have trouble matching the intensity of either the arguments or the sex elsewhere, and while other relationships may be a lot more harmonious and outwardly appealing, sooner or later you'll need that 'fix', and you'll know exactly who can provide it!
If you want a committed long term Aries and Aries relationship you'll probably each need to make some changes. Given you both enjoy a good fight occasionally, and for once you can have that outlet in each other without 'wearing out' someone else, in moderation it's a good setup.
The danger is that it will also be a balancing act. You both need a certain amount of competition to fire you up. However neither of you are good at backing down, so be very wary of how far you raise the stakes, and what you say in the heat of the moment.
More than most, the success of an Aries and Aries relationship depends on give and take - something neither of you are very good at. In the long term you need some system of sharing control, where you each are responsible for decisions and choices in different life areas, and have a rule not to interfere in the other persons 'domain'. Without it, your partnership will become one big power struggle, which is obviously inefficient.
If you can harness your energy as a couple though the sky's the limit, and Aries-Aries is a very powerful match when working as a team. On the flip side, your weaknesses are also compounded, notably your control issues, impatience, comfort with risk taking, reluctance to take advice, and a lack of practicality. You can expect a fairly regular level of crisis, though neither of you may see that as a bad thing.
You're both passionate and impatient lovers, and for once the other person will be able to not only keep up, but totally appreciate it. Throw in the emotional element from arguments and disputes, and there's a good chance you'll be trying to kill each other.. in a good way. The only thing to be wary of is if one of you 'wins' the war, and becomes the boss in bed. This will gradually turn off the other. You'll have more fun if you take turns to be on top.
Neither of you are in a rush to make a long term commitment, and the mutual freedom this allows tends to work well. Aries-Aries relationships can work well on a casual level, and tend to survive better than most, though for reasons few other signs can really fathom or appreciate.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you. If you would like more information on this for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
