Aries compatibility: how they fall in love with other signs
As the first sign of the astrological year, Aries likes to start and dive headfirst (like their symbol Aries) into whatever they’re passionate about. This is partly due to their planetary ruler, Mars, who rules desire, action and war.
Aries is also a cardinal sign, which means it ushers in the appropriate season (spring), and not only that, it’s also a fire sign. As such, Aries prefers to stay in motion and travel at a million miles an hour. Slower and more steady types may even find it hard to keep up with the passionate and gifted Aries.
The Aries archetype also speaks of the passion and innocence of youth. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries jumps in first and then asks the question about it. This independent personality can be inspiring, energetic, fierce — and yes, a little scary. When you think of the courage, risk, confidence and vitality needed to start any project or phase of life, it’s all Aries.
As astrology expert Imani Quinn tells mindbodygreen, “Aries really represents starting things and thriving in new endeavors, and ruled by Mars, they’re also bold and passionate risk-takers. They are not afraid to start all over again, so they can always be in a place of new beginnings.”
