Aries and Scorpio

Aries and Scorpio compatibility in relationships

Aries and Scorpio is typically an explosive match, and this relationship is likely to be a cross between an x-rated movie and a medieval battle. It will almost certainly make you redefine the word 'intense'. Not many signs can match you for passion or force of will, but this one can and will.

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.

Aries and Scorpio compatibility

This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Scorpio man or Scorpio woman.

From the Aries viewpoint

If you want a summarized version of this article: this is a very sensual partner, and that carries a hefty price tag.

Both of you want control and are very strong willed. You'll try to get the upper hand aggressively, while your Scorpio will try to do so more covertly and passively. If that sounds like an easy win, think again - you're a tough cookie; a rock. But this partner is the rain, and will wear you down and sculpt you to their liking eventually. This is often a hard thing for an Aries to accept.

Your Scorpio will drive you crazy with their jealousy, insight and prying. The good news is that you're an open person by nature, so they'll mostly like what they find. Before you know it however, this partner will understand you better than you understand yourself. You'll know it's for the right reasons, which will make it equal parts flattering and annoying. Unless you consciously change your views on certain subjects this relationship will feel like trying to stop the ocean with a bucket in this respect.

Aries Scorpio sex

This will almost certainly be the glue that holds this relationship together at times. You'll find there is something uniquely mysterious, taboo and alluring about your Scorpio lover. Sooner or later though, you'll start to realize your partner is operating on a much deeper emotional level than you are.

When a Scorpio loves you they want to own your body and soul, and as an Aries you aren't going to just hand those over willingly! Your Scorpio will pick up on that reluctance, and probably read a lot into it - such as a lack of commitment or trust on your part. Scorpios have an annoying habit of being right when it comes to such things, and being a fiery Aries you're very likely to be a relative novice in the intuition department by comparison.

This is worth a special mention. Don't do it, and don't even think about it. This partner will pick up on it, and you'll probably pay the price tenfold. It's safe to say your first argument will relate to jealousy, and you will need to adjust your view on flirting and having friends who are potential love interests. This is a sensual partner, who will give themselves to you 100%. The catch is, they won't settle for much less than the same in return.

Aries Scorpio Long term

If you aren't sure you're ready to settle down and commit to just one partner then this relationship is unlikely to work out. On the other hand, if you are ready to make that commitment, then it will be an intensely satisfying relationship. The main way to gauge this is by how often the issues of commitment and jealousy are discussed. If your Scorpio isn't happy with either of them, you'll know about it! On the bright-side, if you can, or have, survived the two main issues of commitment and jealousy then this relationship will be a keeper.

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 compatibility readings page.

From the Scorpio viewpoint

Scorpio and Aries Compatibility

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. You're stranded on a desert island, and they're walking towards you naked, and carrying a box of your favorite donuts and a coffee from starbucks.

The grim reality however is that unless your lover is an older Aries, you're 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, bold, direct, flirtatious and sexy, and you won't 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 yummy donuts...

The early stage of the relationship

This is a match where the chemistry is often so strong that you aren't going to need to try very hard. If anything getting together 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!

You'll want to keep your Aries on a short leash. They'll pull away, not because they have anything to hide, but because independence and control is so fundamental to Aries. The remainder of your relationship will be spent fighting over these issues. You're 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 you're trying to cage one of the ultimate free spirits.

Scorpio Aries Long term

Your Aries may have a roving eye, at least by your uncompromising standards of loyalty. Together with their lack of emotional depth it's going to frustrate you - there's no avoiding this (until you get them trained!) You'll need to remind yourself these are qualities you find attractive (being so opposite to yours), and instead of trying to stop them, try to feed off it and redirect the passion and inspiration you get from it.

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 to the surface for what it is, and realize that it wouldn't be there if your partner was on your level. Given time it's likely you can change them, but will you want the end result? Hard as it may be, some level of compromise will be needed to make this work, and neither of you are very good at compromising, or giving up without a fight.

Aries and Scorpio Compatibility Summary

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, with a real astrology reading...
