Uncomplicated, bold, aggressive and impulsive, Aries can sometimes be seen as selfish, insensitive, domineering, blunt, outspoken and impatient. They’re never afraid of taking a risk. Lacking in self control they more than compensate in resilience – this is one tough cookie, who will live life to the fullest.
Aries can be jealous, and though he will try his best not to show it, he is not good at hiding his feelings. At root, he is terribly insecure and needs a lot of attention and positive reinforcement. Deeply competitive, he is an alpha male (or sometimes an alpha wannabe) who can’t stand the thought another man might get the love, sex, and attention that belongs to him. Yes, he is possessive, but he doesn’t want to be possessed himself. He has a double standard about a lot of things because his emotions are fixed on ‘me’. In order to grow, he will have to embrace his Libra Earth qualities, learning his partner’s needs matter as much as his own and that fairness and balance are important to his own long-term happiness.
The Aries man is a mixture of fearless warrior and undisciplined child. Aries is one of the easiest signs to understand, these are action people, extroverted and assertive. They want to be in charge, the boss, the hunter, the instigator. They are typically confident, fiery, bold, spontaneous and independent.
Once the thrill of the chase is over, Aries is tempted to stray unless his mate rekindles his imagination. Aries wants true love, but he’s also a romantic who enjoys wining and dining his lover. He seeks a romantic partner who can be a pal when he wants to go whitewater rafting or exploring a new hiking trail. A partner who can shift in and out of the role of lover and friend will surely capture his heart forever.
Ruled by the planet Mars, the Aries men move through the world on the their own terms and pace, and that is a major reason why some people find it too challenging to keep up with them. However, if you learn to accept their peculiarities, getting along with them will be a lot easier. Let’s go through some basic characteristics of the Aries men one by one.
The level of Aries’ impulsiveness is determined by how mature he is and the kind of self-exploration he’s done. An immature Aries can be head over heels in love every other day with someone new. If he’s learned how to develop relationships and understands the rewards of nurturing a serious love relationship, his impulsive nature manifests as spontaneity and openness to new experience.
Risk-takers and gamblers extraordinaire, and often profligate spenders, Aries men can make others quite nervous with their devil-may-care attitude when it comes to managing money and issues of financial security. But luck is often on their side, usually helping him come out on top of seemingly impossible situations. Saving funds is not a strong point here, and these guys tend to fall prey to get-rich-quick schemes all too often.
The tension you feel around the Ram is the scent of something taboo. Look deeper, Libra woman, and you will see that all of the traits you share have a taint of the forbidden about them, hence the magnetic attraction between you two despite all warnings.
When the Aries man loves, he holds on tight. This can make him a tyrant who runs his home like a four-star general. He wants his kids to be successful and will hold them to high standards—though he spoils them ridiculously, too. This won’t always be an easy relationship. There could be episodes of screaming, tears, hurled objects and slammed doors with your warrior prince. He can take you to the edge of a mental breakdown. But as our Aries uncle Sami once said, “If you can’t fight with someone, you can’t love them.” For every shattered wine glass or hyperventilating meltdown, there will be passionate sex, unparalleled intimacy and devotion so powerful it takes your breath away. Together, you’ll write this unforgettable love story with blood, sweat and tears—every drop that’s in you.
Don’t be surprised, however, when their private persona reveals more vulnerability than you might have expected. Underneath that bombastic bravado, a childlike naiveté can cause them to end up with hurt feelings that are often masked by humor. It can be hard to keep up with their rapidfire wit, flair for grand gestures, and impressive libidos – so prepare to do a little stamina training in those areas if you have one of these fine fellows in your life!
An Aries man lives for adrenaline, change, excitement, and novelty – so if you want to give him gifts, choose skydiving lessons, martial arts classes, or an exciting surprise vacation to somewhere he’s never been before. Surprises of all kinds are welcome here – the Ram is a sign who actually enjoys being caught a little off-guard, and will totally respect you for being able to pull off a surprise party without him finding out.
The most likely romance between you will be work-related, Virgo woman. If you are put together to work on a specific project, your goal will be the glue that bonds you. Can you make a life of happiness your next big collaboration?
Stubborn as the Ram that symbolically represents him, the typical Aries man is a warrior for what he believes to be right and true. With driven, passionate, and courageous personalities, these men tend to be movers and shakers who make big things happen in their careers and communities. Their assertiveness can be mistaken for aggression, but often it’s just the raw enthusiasm and verve that propels these horned creatures up and down the mountain.
No one can turn on the charm better than an Aries man who is in love! His childlike directness combined with the innate grace of his Libra side can melt the heart of any woman he chooses as long as he is her type. An acquired taste, he has a lot to learn and far to go, but despite his blunders, he is quick to learn from his mistakes. He is an innocent at heart, and loveable as a child.
At first, they may come across as selfish and self-centred people. But there does exist a generous side of these highly active individuals, well, it is a different thing that they show it to only those who they think are worthy of it. Aries men don’t spend their precious time whining about how the world has been unfair to them and things like that. And even if they do, they will quickly bounce back. It is their courage, enthusiasm, positivity and love for near and dear ones, which gives them immense strength to face the challenges of life. However, they tend to be outspoken, overconfident, and at times, quite insensitive also. Expecting them to listen to your woes endlessly and heal your wounds patiently may be too much to ask for.
With impulsive and idealistic traits, Aries tend to dream big, which means that they can be enterprising entrepreneurs, but many of their endeavors may end up being a flash in the pan. Often pioneers in their field, these fellows are always engaged in an intense race to be number one – to get their invention patented, to get the scoop, or to make their brilliant business idea the first of its kind. There is a sense of urgency to everything these Rams do, and their success is always defined by their primacy. If they aren’t the first ones to reach the highest peak of the mountain, what’s the point?
The Aries personality is one of extremes – there is no middle of the road here – so get ready to be equally as clear about what you want, and to be sure that you are speaking your own mind. The Aries man wants a powerful match that he can respect, and doesn’t have a lot of time for passivity, mixed messages, or doublespeak – but once he’s decided he wants you, he’ll put up with a lot if he thinks he can attain the prize.
The danger for an Aries in a relationship is being too controlling and confrontational. They need to consciously curb their desire to battle and win. More specifically, they need to learn how to lose when fighting someone they love. It may sound like a quote from Sun Tzu, but in love they need to learn the art of ‘winning by appearing to lose’.
Most relationships are lots of talk and not enough action. The Scorpio woman’s affair with a Ram will be exactly the opposite: All action and little conversation. Get to know each other before it gets too deep.
Though an Aries male can sometimes make for a complicated relationship, this zodiac sign isn’t actually complicated on a personal level. Aries’ cardinal triplicity and fire element are in perfect harmony; both are forward and direct energies. Aries is a soldier and a leader and his relationships will be only become complicated when challenged by individuals of a contradictory nature. Do not try and restrain him, but instead allow him to thrive in his element and all will be well. The world has developed through centuries of political and technological progress, often fueled by the drive of Aries individuals. This energy and archetype is vital and should only be suppressed when Aries’ truly worst points rear themselves.
The Aries man is a natural leader, so if he does want kids, he takes great pride in being “head of the household.” There’s a tinge of chest-beating chauvinism to this, a sense that you could be cast into the roles of traditional, Leave It To Beaver-era husband and wife. Of course, you’ll never sleep in separate twin beds like the Cleavers. Mostly it will all be for show, another part of the peacock you’ll have to deal with. Even if you don’t have kids, there will always be a very important third “member” of your household: his penis, that is. The Aries man is incredibly proud and fascinated of everything his can do. And you’d better be, too. There’s usually plenty to appreciate there, anyhow. It will be obvious when you meet him that he knows that.
This is always a hard question to answer, as one person’s idea of kinky can be very different to someone else’s. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Aries men are amongst the more kinky, yes.

The Aries man typically prefers feminine and ‘girly’ women, ideally who are intelligent but straightforward, and are not overly ambitious or bossy by his standards (which means they can be fairly ambitious and bossy by anyone else’s!)
The Aries man is great at either having lots of sex with lots of different people, or being completed devoted to one woman. Nothing in between. He’s too impatient to master the finer points of courtship. It doesn’t even occur to him. The Aries man is endearingly authentic to a fault. Even if he’s dating multiple women when you meet, he’ll just tell you outright. Although it may seem crude, his open-book policy can actually create a space of greater trust.
However, he doesn’t have much sense for anyone but himself. He can be rough, selfish and impulsive, while approaching every relationship he has as a fighting arena, where he needs to show his supremacy.
Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.
From just someone’s sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it’s too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
Leo ladies, your passion could blind you to mundane realities. This exciting partnership often gets off to an amazing start, and then compensates for a lack of energy down the road with unnecessary drama. Provide him some peace once in a while.
This kind of self-absorption isn’t coming from a truly narcissistic place, but from an honest self-assurance of his own capability and all-around awesomeness. It’s true that Mars-ruled Aries men are good at what they do, and they’re not shy about standing in the spotlight.
Aries is a sign which sometimes gets bad press in this area. Being bold and spontaneous does have it’s disadvantages here. If they decide to cheat, then they typically can do so easier than most other signs. With that said, they are no more likely to want to cheat than any other sign. Whether they love their partner or not is the key factor. If they do, they are totally loyal. If they don’t.. then all bets are off.
He may seem like a brute, following his instincts and rarely using his brain, however smart he might be. Still, there is a soft side to him. If his loved one is in need of his help and support, he will show exactly how much he cares. When he feels respected and loved, he will let his guard down and seem like a cuddly bear at times. Aries might be ashamed to be soft, but when he feels trust, he can’t help it. There is a warm, behind the act, nature to this man, something that needs to be discovered in time and is reachable by approaching him with a lot of tenderness, however he might act.
The Aries man is hot, hot, hot – physically and emotionally. Even when not conventionally handsome, these guys possess a kind of bravado and raw sexuality that oozes off of them, often making them infuriatingly attractive. There’s an innate confidence in the way they carry themselves – an energetic saunter, a wry grin, a double entendre that will make you want to stand closer to them in spite of yourself. Sex with an Aries man can be quite an athletic affair – lots of sweat pouring off slick flanks, acrobatic positions, and possibly a bit of consensual rough play.
