Capricorn woman, it is much more likely that an Aries man will be your rival for a position at work than it is for you falling in love. But this natural tension does produce an intense and physically exhilarating passion.
Aries plays by his own rules. He doesn’t care how convention says he should behave, and that definitely includes his love life. He will direct his energies with full intensity toward whatever he is most interested in at the moment. What he wants, he pursues, but for all his ardor, he can give up and move on with surprising swiftness if he doesn’t get the response he wants within a certain span of time. Depending on what else is going on in his chart (Moon sign, ascendant sign, other planets, astrological spects, and houses), he may give up quickly or persevere for a while, but patience and persistence are not his strong points.
In your care and treatment of this special man, you need to be sure to pepper your physical demonstrations with a lot of sincere words. Everyone needs to hear those loving words, but Aries has a deeper need than other signs. Don’t be stingy with the praise. Just make sure you’re sincere because Aries has a built-in radar for insincerity. If he suspects you’re playing him, all you’ll see is the dust as he takes off on his motorcycle or in his sports car.
Generally they don’t. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Aries men do or don’t. Individuals get offended by general statements that don’t apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:
An Aries man inherits the god of war’s ability to quickly strategize and form a plan of attack. Whether it’s in business, war or love, Aries is always up to the challenge. He is highly competitive in every area of his life. He enjoys competing against himself as much as he does with others. His career is a benchmark of accomplishments, especially those he garners for being the first in his company or industry to achieve certain successes and milestones. When it comes to his love interest, Aries is drawn to the most desirable partner. He enjoys the competition to win the object of his desire, since he’s certain he’ll be the victor.
Ironically, one of the most common complaints about them is that they can be too direct and honest about such things. This isn’t a man who sits around planning or leaving subtle clues! If you have to ask with an Aries then… probably he doesn’t (or doesn’t yet!) For a full description of how an Aries man acts when in love please see our article on Aries in love
Your attraction to the Ram is understandable. He moves through the world on his own terms and makes commitments that are adhered to. His good looks are complemented with athleticism that makes him look physically fit even when he might have stayed away from the gym for quite some time.
Relationships are not easy to Aries in general, but Aries men have special trouble when needed to connect to their partner, feel compassion and think for two. He finds it much easier to do everything alone and finds it rare in a partner to have enough energy to follow his lead. Aries man is prone to chauvinism more than any other sign in the zodiac. It is imperative for his partner to stay independent, financially and socially, if a relationship with this man is to succeed.
If your sights are set on Aries, the last thing you want to do is chase him. Aries is all about the chase, but he prefers to be the hunter. He enjoys the art of pursuit, especially the first moves of flirting, and he’s very good at each stage of the chase. Enjoy the attention and don’t give in too soon or the excitement will be over once he catches up with you. The harder he must try to win your attention, the greater he’ll consider his win. After all, he’s number one and believes he deserves only the best.
The Aries male is practically an archetype of raw masculinity. Inherently dominant and a natural born leader, an Aries man thrives on challenge and confrontation. Both the fiery and cardinal forces that govern Aries make for a highly aggressive and even unbalanced individual. For this reason, Aries males are hard to tame and often suffer a lack of self-restraint.
Conquests can turn into a matter of pride or a competition, but Aries men can be easily bored and require constant stimulation. The best way to turn on an Aries is to just completely ignore them – but beware! That kind of rebuff won’t often get you a second chance. These partners may truly be suited better to polyamory, so keep that in mind if you’re wanting to settle down and get cozy for the long haul.
When he’s in love, the Aries man becomes single-minded when struck by Cupid’s arrow! This cardinal fire sign does not hesitate to make the first move, and he’s not afraid to take risks or to appear foolish. Headstrong and impetuous, he learns the hard way, by making mistakes, a lot of them.
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.
His natural independence makes him a real “catch” as well, as it may appear that he prefers to wander instead of settling down. However, the sincerity and simplicity of the Ram cannot be overstated. You can guarantee you are getting exactly what is advertised. Check him out and you will discover that what you see is what you get.
The Aries male is a man’s man. He’s admired by women and men alike and gets along with other men until he’s challenged. Any man who steps in Aries’ way will quickly feel his wrath. Aries truly enjoys sports, especially those that challenge him. Mountain climbing, biking, car racing and martial arts are typically good matches.
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.
A quiet night at home is not the ideal way to woo your Aries man. Instead, take him out to a loud, raucous concert and be willing to join him on the dance floor or in the mosh pit – or ringside at a Mexican wrestling match or a bullfight.
Aries lives up to his birthright of being the first born of the zodiac. This comes through in his need to always be number one in your life. If he ever feels as though he isn’t your number one, he’ll be compelled to find someone else to give him that first place status. What you may view as needing to have his ego petted is simply his need for validation. It’s tough being the first sign of the zodiac, so cut him some slack whenever you feel he’s being a bit too demanding of your time. Pause long enough to give him the loving kiss or reassuring hug. That’s really all he needs, but he does need them more often than other sun signs.
He tends to be very competitive, but unlike some signs also has a strong sense of fair play – he wants to win for himself; to prove to the world he could do it – and isn’t interested in deceit or cheating. He hates to be bossed around, or feel trapped.
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.
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.
Going the extra mile will make him feel special – he wants to feel like he matters, so show him that he does by giving him gifts that are meant for him and him alone. Your Aries man is an original – there’s no one else quite like him, so don’t think for an instant that a Hallmark card or something you picked up at the mall is going to cut it. If anyone else has it, he probably doesn’t want it.
This enthusiastic lot is always ready for adventure and excitement. Besides, they love surprises as they keep them engaged and mentally stimulated. Anything predictable and/ or straight from the text-book dampens their spirits.
Aries loves to flirt and enjoys every nuance of that first attraction. If a woman catches his interest, he will all but stand on his head to get her attention. Like a schoolboy, his approach can be annoying and even overwhelming. When he is rejected, as he often is (because his approach is not for everyone), he bounces back and is happy to keep trying. His heart is easily (if temporarily) broken, but nothing can keep this man down.
Aries is the sign of the fiery, rebellious personality, so be prepared to expect the unexpected with them – in their interests, personal perspectives, and even in their occasionally flamboyant dress sense. They don’t want to be part of the conformist herd and will find a way to set themselves apart and stand out from the crowd.
This is not the sign of a homebody, so don’t expect the living space of the Aries man to be welcoming or comfortable. It works for them, and they have it all arranged the way they like it, but concessions might not be made for the desires of anyone else. There may just be one place setting or chair at the table, or one pillow on the bed. It’s not that they didn’t think of you, it’s just that they often don’t think of home as a place to share, or even really a place where they want to spend too much time – not with all the exciting things to do and see out in the world.
This man is particularly masculine and virile (yes okay, macho and horny!) and is in touch with his inner child. The later manifests in both good and bad ways; on the plus side he tends to be very fun loving and adventurous, and on the negative he can be very sulky if he doesn’t get his own way, or is ignored.
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 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’.
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.
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.
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.
When you want a jolt of non-stop energy and a curious mind that never stops, you are looking for an Aries. When you are interested in someone who will respect your space and your individuality, an Aries man is hard to surpass. If it is acceptance that you crave, along with some distance to balance the intimacy between you two, an Aries man is quite suited for your needs.
What he needs is sort of contradictory: a relationship that gives him ultimate security and full freedom to roam. The Aries man is deeply driven by a fear of abandonment, so that should never be an issue between you. Once that’s secured, he feels safe to spread his arms wide and pull life to him. He wants to live life like it’s a huge playground—more like a carnival fairground—where he can wander, explore, win you stuffed animals, and enjoy a freak show or two. On Coney Island, reality is suspended. There’s a different set of rules, or perhaps none at all, which is perfect because that means he gets to make them. We can’t help but mention Aries Hugh Hefner again, who lives at the Playboy Mansion surrounded by half-naked centerfold models all day. Who cares if nobody else lives that way? That only makes it more appealing for Aries.
Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don’t however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.
Let’s start with a disclaimer: you might not like what you hear. Or, you might just shout “finally!” The Aries man has a very specific, grand and demanding vision for his ultimate relationship. In life, he orders everything customized to his tastes, and those tastes are very particular. He may not subconsciously realize that human beings, imbued with things like personalities and free will, can’t conform to his fantasies on demand. He’d rather just find that “needle in the haystack” relationship, the impossible dream come true. When he finds that, he gives it every ounce of his being. He turns off the selfish switch and pours on the giving. So why would he do that for just anyone?
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.
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?
