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.
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.
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.
This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Aries men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.
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.
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.
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.
The endless conversation and social entanglements will bind you two. He may not see the Gemini woman’s dual nature as quite honest, and you will have to avoid mistaking his concrete reality as a lack of intellect.
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.
Aries has a difficult time finding an ideal mate. As a leader-driven archetype who thrives on challenging new projects, commitment is not in his nature. Individuals with a moon or Venus in Aries have a very hard time settling down, and it will take one remarkable woman to keep him homebound. What an Aries desires will often depend on where this sign manifests in his chart. However, for a chart-dominant Aries, an equally passionate mate who is direct yet mysterious may have a chance at catching his interest long term.
The Cancerian woman should avoid the trap of assuming his single-mindedness is something to be stereotyped. Compartmentalize him at your own risk. Be open to adventure and understand that he does not want to stay home every night.
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?
With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see my article on astrology compatibility readings.
This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information – everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.
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.
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.
Every Ram needs a little area in the universe to call his own. If you can leave him alone when the need for his brooding arises, you will have his heart. He seeks the reassuring tranquility of partnership, yet needs a respite to be one with the universe.
Everything sharp, red colored and hot will be a good fit. If he doesn’t already have a collection, you can always buy him a Swiss knife, a set of tools, a hunter’s hat, a flame thrower or a pair of sexy boxers. He will be happy if you show how masculine and strong he is, and give him something practical to use. Don’t obsess about his presents if you will have any resulting expectations – he will never obsess about yours.
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.
Confrontational, short-tempered, egoistic and controlling, the Aries men rarely admit their shortcomings and are not so keen rectifying their mistakes. Besides, their demanding attitude creates pressure on their relationships, causing irreparable damage at times. The Aries men know how to play with words in order to get what they want. While it is a positive trait to some extent, it also makes them manipulative.
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.
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 Ram will fixate on some point about the Sagittarius woman, which could be something you love about yourself, or not. If you can satisfy his fixation, though, you will be absolutely worshipped by him.
As a dad, the Aries man is excellent at making little ones explode into fits of helpless giggling and happy to unleash his inner clown to delight children of all ages. This is the kind of father who may toss his babe high up in the air before catching them again, or toss them in the pool to teach them to swim – much to the chagrin of their possibly more safety-conscious and risk-averse co-parent.
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.
Speaking up about your worldview will make him much more interested in you, Pisces woman. The fact that you two share a common bond that runs this deep should make your pursuit of the Ram that much easier.
No advice will ever apply to every Aries man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn’t nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.
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.
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.
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.
This is a man who will appreciate sexy clothes and underwear, the bolder the better. If you’ve been looking for someone to model those impractical slinky outfits for, this is the guy! He enjoys being the pursuer, so once you’re looking suitably sexy for him, being demure, timid and shy will score major additional points.
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.
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.
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.
An Aries man knows what he wants immediately, and goes after it with zero hesitation. This kind of man is often a leaper off of high cliffs, and not always a looker to see what lies down below. There’s a “me first!” mentality that can result in a sense of urgency in regards to ambition and initiative. This can make them natural leaders, ready to head up the vanguard.
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.
Besides, it’s not like Aries thinks relationships are the be-all end-all of life. He gets restless, itchy for the next adventure. His eyes rove, his imagination wanders. Isn’t there another damsel to save somewhere? Another sexual position he hasn’t tried? He knows his desires may be more than one woman can supply—and he’s not above shopping at a few different stores to complete his sexual grocery list. To this independent sign, bachelorhood is a cherished prize. It’s his ticket to freedom, adventure, unlimited expression—his access to feeling truly alive. He’ll never trade it in unless he truly believes a relationship will provide all those treasures and more.
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.
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
Holding on to his affections might seem impossible at first. If you can adjust your expectations, you will realize that he is already meeting most of what you want in a partner. Aries men are turned off by clingy women, needy partners, and a lingering invasion of their private spaces and time.
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.
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:
Aries wants a playmate more than a soulmate; someone who can meet and match his energy and enthusiasm, and who won’t hesitate to yell at him to stop when he gets carried away. Excitement is one of his mainstays in life. If an Aries commits to marriage, it will take something drastic to make him stray. His Libra Earth opposite sign makes sure of that! However, he is self-centred and if he feels his needs are not being met (particularly sexual needs), he may see nothing wrong with moving on.
Aries men make great initiators and extremely hard workers. They will put in a lot of muscle at the beginning of the project, but sometimes lose interest or stamina halfway through, and need support in wrapping things up. An explosive temper can make an Aries a frustrating teammate – they have a hard time masking their often impatient personality when not in charge or working solo.
To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what’s involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
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.
