Like a moth to a flame
Your Aries is so full of life, ideas and passion that it will draw you in like a moth to a flame. Your partner is open, direct and deliciously impractical. Youre stranded on a desert island, and they're walking towards you carrying a box of donuts and a coffee from starbucks.
The grim reality however is that unless your lover is an older Aries, youre going to have trouble getting the level of commitment you want. Worse than that, in changing them you risk ruining the very things which attracted you in the first place.
The key to this relationship is to turn the passion your Aries inspires in a productive direction, and not let it transform to jealousy. They're naturally outgoing, direct and sexy, and you wont be the only one to notice. That desert island will soon transform into a crowded airport, and they'll still be naked and carrying that box of donuts..
The chemistry between you is so strong that you arent going to need to try very hard. If anything it could be a complete 'accident'.
Not many pairings get 5 stars, but this one does. This partner has both the passion to match your own, the impulsiveness to keep everything fresh and exciting, and the nerves of steel to actually enjoy it!
Youll want to keep your Aries, theyll pull away not because they have anything to hide, but because independence and control is fundamental to Aries. The remainder of your relationship will be spent fighting over these issues. Youre going to have a lot of make up sex (well, damn the luck ) and some of your most intense and aggressive sessions will likely come after arguments. Bittersweet at its finest, however it wont change the fact youre trying to cage one of the ultimate free spirits.
Do you really want to change your Aries? Trap that free spirit, remove that impracticality? Aries live on the surface of life, and you live deep below the surface. Enjoy that window for what it is, and realize that it wouldnt be there if your partner was on your level. Given time its likely you can change them, but will you want the end result? Hard as it may be, some level of compromise will improve both the journey and the destination.
Your Aries may have a roving eye, at least by your uncompromising standards of loyalty, and together with their lack of emotional depth its going to frustrate you. Youll need to remind yourself these are qualities you find attractive, and instead of trying to stop them, try to feed off it and redirect the inspiration you get from it.
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. If you would like more information for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
Other resourcesOften the best way to establish for yourself how compatible you are is to ask your partner questions. Sounds obvious and easy, but in practice it can be awkward.
Often the hardest questions to ask are the most important - for example, what are their views and expectations for raising children? sharing housework? saving money? career goals? etc.
One subtle and fun way to approach this is by working through a couples question book together - that way it's not really you asking, and delicate subjects can be covered easily. The best book for this I've found is Michael Webb's 1000 Questions For Couples
For reviews of this and other relationship ebooks on subjects ranging from improving your sex life to getting an ex back please see the relationship ebook reviews page.
A third method of further research is to share experiences with other couples of this same sign combination - you may be amazed how consistent they often are. Please see the links below for visitor experiences and questions.
In any relationship there are also very significant external factors. One of these is how well you understand yourself, your partner and your partnership - the more you do, the easier it is to make the relationship more exciting, fulfilling and satisfying for both of you, regardless of your starting position. The articles on how to Make him fall in love with you and Make her fall in love with you have information on how you can use astrology to revitalize a relationship.

The information on this page applies equally to gay or lesbian relationships. Overall, gender affects relationships far less than planet placement does, so it's currently ignored to avoid articles becoming overburdened with gender permutations.
