Wild Side

Aries and Scorpio have something wild and sexy going on, with an edge. It has a dangerous feel, but passions can fizzle out when the real work of relating starts. Both have strong sex drives, and bring a rough urgency to the bedroom. But fairly soon, there will be hints of a struggle for dominance.

Aries needs to be the leader, but Scorpio is has a radar pulsing that's alert to being controlled, and will resist the Ram's bossy behavior.

Aries blurts things out, while Scorpio keeps everything on the down low. Aries may start to think Scorpio too secretive, and Scorpio will resent the persistent prying.  Scorpio's idea of hell is to have someone get up in their face.  And yet, Aries rules the head, and is forceful that way, very "in your face." 

Conquests in Love

In relationship, Scorpio starts to be suspicious of Aries' loyalty for the long haul, and sometimes rightly so. The flirty nature of Aries ignites the intensely jealous Scorpio, who reacts with retaliatory stings. Always primed for battle, Aries escalates the situation until smoke is coming out of both their ears.

Aries likes the chase, and will be intrigued by the clandestine Scorpio.  But consider that Aries is not known for nuance, and Scorpio's essence is to sense the unsaid, interior motives, the backstory.  Aries brings Scorpio into the moment, but the latter will not follow the Ram over a love cliff. 

Both like to have the upper hand in love, in different ways.  Aries is a full frontal amour, which can be alarming to the wary Scorpio.  The power moves of Scorpio are stealthy, which Aries could see as some kind of manipulation.  In a fight, these are formidable players and someone could get hurt. 

These two are like characters in a romantic thriller, where the pair rarely ends up living happily ever after.  It could even seem like a fight to the death.  But something keeps them hooked in, even if the relationship goes south. They'll likely always find the other jarring and exciting, which keeps the old flame from ever completely going out.
