Love Match: Aries and Aries

Sunny Side 100% in the moment; adventurous times; super active; supporting each others' ambitions; crazy high libido; similarly honest; neither holds a grudge; always new; at home pushing and provoking. Dark Side: Knock down drag outs, no restraint on aggression; trouble relating to the "other;" selfish viewpoint with no room for compromise; explosive; brutal exes.

Cardinal Fire and Cardinal Fire

There's nothing stopping Aries and Aries -- two fools in love -- to dive right in! Aries is associated with the Fool card in the Tarot, and it's part of Aries' charm to be open to life wherever it leads. Aries No other sign is as likely to fall head over heels (Aries rules the head) in the first meeting. Aries can have many short, but passionate affairs that are exciting and fast-paced.

It begins with first impressions with two Aries Suns. There's a lot of vitality here, for an affair that gets physical right away. Getting physical can mean wrestling around, dancing up a storm or for some, competitive sports. And when the time is right, the Aries libido is strong, for nights that last until morning, and then start up again as soon as one eye is open.

Frictions start because each is headstrong, and wants to be top dog in this duo. There can be warm affection, until there's an argument and then, watch out! Doors slamming, shouting in public and when two warriors face-off, there could be actual physical brawling. Two Aries are physically powerful in the bedroom, and at times, can be aggressive. Aries thrives on a test of wills, and making love is an act of surrender to the moment. The tension of pursuit and resistance, until that sweet surrender, can be a big part of the love play.

Aries forgives easily and doesn't hold onto anger, but here you've got two alphas in one pack. There may always be a combative feeling to the relationship. And when things get complicated, one or both may bail too easily.

Aries loves to start things, but moves on at hints of emotional hand-wringing, or having to work out a mental puzzle. They'll hang in there as long as it's fresh, adventurous and sexually satisfying, but in the end, this pairing calls for compromise. And that's not the Aries strong suit. Good while it lasts, and never a dull moment -- an unforgettable fling, but not necessarily for the long haul.

Mitigating Factors

Don't count this out, if there's chemistry and understanding. Every Aries is different, depending on the Moon, Venus, Mars, and the rest of the cosmic ensemble. For tools to make it work, look deeper into the chart for what grounds, harmonizes and what each needs and desires in love.

The Moon is who each of you are, at home in your pajamas. It's also how you react to a crisis or emotional intensity. Earth sign Moons can ground an Aries, and lends patience. An air sign Moon is a base of detachment, and this helps to keep perspective. An Aries with a water sign Moon is sensitive and empathetic. An Aries with a fire sign Moon is instinctual, and flashes on feelings.

Are your Moon signs compatible? Air and fire go together well, and so do earth and water. A strong Moon sign rapport can give your "Ariesness" a home, and is like a love glue. It bodes well for living together, and overcoming the all-or-nothing impulsiveness of your sign. Read more about Moon signs.

Your Venus sign shows what you're magnetized to, in love and friendship. It's your taste in women (for men) or your feminine way (for women). When Venus is in synch, you want the same things, and grow intimacy with ease. Look to your Venus Sign for ways to make memorable times with your fellow Aries.

Last but not least, look to your Mars Signs. Aries is ruled by Mars, the red planet. And you and your beloveds Mars is a tip off to how you direct your forceful energies. Mars is symbolically the god of war, and there's the saying, "All's fair in love and war." Your Mars sign reveals how you pursue your desires, your physical rhythm and what gets you fired up.
