Aries man personality traits and characteristics

The Aries man is a mixture of fearless warrior and undisciplined child. Aries is one of the easiest signs to understand, these are action people, extroverted and assertive. They want to be in charge, the boss, the hunter, the instigator. They are typically confident, fiery, bold, spontaneous and independent.

This man is particularly masculine and virile (yes okay, macho and horny!) and is in touch with his inner child. The later manifests in both good and bad ways; on the plus side he tends to be very fun loving and adventurous, and on the negative he can be very sulky if he doesn't get his own way, or is ignored.

He tends to be very competitive, but unlike some signs also has a strong sense of fair play - he wants to win for himself; to prove to the world he could do it - and isn't interested in deceit or cheating. He hates to be bossed around, or feel trapped.

Uncomplicated, bold, aggressive and impulsive, Aries can sometimes be seen as selfish, insensitive, domineering, blunt, outspoken and impatient. They're never afraid of taking a risk. Lacking in self control they more than compensate in resilience - this is one tough cookie, who will live life to the fullest.

Ambitious and hardworking, he will typically make a good living, though probably isn't the best at saving the money he makes, instead preferring to enjoy it as it arrives.

The danger for an Aries in a relationship is being too controlling and confrontational. They need to consciously curb their desire to battle and win. More specifically, they need to learn how to lose when fighting someone they love. It may sound like a quote from Sun Tzu, but in love they need to learn the art of 'winning by appearing to lose'.

Aries man questions

What are Aries men like in bed?

We have a separate article on Aries men sexuality

Are Aries men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Aries men are amongst the more kinky, yes.

What's it like dating an Aries man?

An adventurous and exciting lover, Aries men are never dull or boring. On the contrary the main risk is that a partner may not be able to keep up with them, or lack their resilience to bounce back from the many minor crisis and setbacks which being so impulsive and dynamic naturally creates. We have a separate article on Aries in love

How loyal are Aries men?

Aries is a sign which sometimes gets bad press in this area. Being bold and spontaneous does have it's disadvantages here. If they decide to cheat, then they typically can do so easier than most other signs. With that said, they are no more likely to want to cheat than any other sign. Whether they love their partner or not is the key factor. If they do, they are totally loyal. If they don't.. then all bets are off.

How to know if an Aries man loves you?

One of the most straightforward signs, if an Aries man is interested in you then you'll probably know about it! They rarely have a problem taking action or making their intentions clear.

Ironically, one of the most common complaints about them is that they can be too direct and honest about such things. This isn't a man who sits around planning or leaving subtle clues! If you have to ask with an Aries then... probably he doesn't (or doesn't yet!) For a full description of how an Aries man acts when in love please see our article on Aries in love

How to understand your Aries man

Your Aries will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.

With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see our article on astrology compatibility readings.

Who are some famous Aries men celebrities?

We have a list of the top 400 most famous Aries celebrities and historical figures.

What are the bad things about Aries men?

Aries see themselves as leaders. While it's true they are indeed leaders, they lead by action and not by planning or intellectual process. This can be good or bad depending on the situation. They are arguably the most spontaneous sign, and as such the most prone to regret things later.

They also have to make a conscious effort to look around to see other people's feelings and desires, it doesn't happen automatically for them. If you're the sensitive type, then it's fair to say you may get your feelings hurt occasionally, though it probably won't be intentional.

How to keep an Aries man?

The Aries man typically prefers feminine and 'girly' women, ideally who are intelligent but straightforward, and are not overly ambitious or bossy by his standards (which means they can be fairly ambitious and bossy by anyone else's!)

This is a man who will appreciate sexy clothes and underwear, the bolder the better. If you've been looking for someone to model those impractical slinky outfits for, this is the guy! He enjoys being the pursuer, so once you're looking suitably sexy for him, being demure, timid and shy will score major additional points.

Aries men are however also very intellectual. Good conversation and a strong mental connection are equally important to them, though it's often a less obvious facet of their personality.

How to know if your Aries man is your soulmate?

Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.

Aries man long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Aries men cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Aries men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:

Aries man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make an Aries man fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Aries men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

Aries man gifts

We have a dedicated section for Aries man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Aries men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.

Aries man dating advice

No advice will ever apply to every Aries man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn't nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.

How compatible are you with your Aries man?

This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. 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 and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.

We specialize in providing accurate and affordable astrology compatibility readings delivered promptly via email. This reading explores everything about your relationship, including a detailed analysis of your personality and your partner's personality. We examine areas ranging from sexual attraction to problem solving. Each topic has clear explanations, scores and comparisons to averages. The relevant astrological charts are included, together with notes of how the information is derived from them.

Average size is 100 pages. The reading is $27 and includes an unconditional guarantee, free email questions and free revision if you later find a more accurate birth time for you or your partner.

All the analysis is based off of the date, time and location of birth for you and your partner. Ideally the times should be as accurate as possible, but we can work with the best information you have.

Below is a questionnaire which shows the information we will need:

Your first name
Your date of birth

So is this article conclusive?

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.

To get a complete picture of someone we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their natal chart.
