The Best (and Worst) Love Matches for Aries

Read on to find out what signs pair best with fiery Aries!

It is finally springtime which means love is in the air! This month, we will be discussing the perfect, and not so perfect, love matches for the signs. I already talked about Pisces last month, so this week we are tackling Aries!

Are you an Aries or do you have Aries in a prominent place somewhere in your birth chart? Do you fantasize about going on an adventure with your one true love? Are you yearning for someone who admires your passion and quirks? Do you want to find someone who will scream a rock song at the top of their lungs with you? If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are in luck! Because I have a list of best and worst zodiac matches for you!

What makes a good zodiac love match? When calculating your compatibility with a potential partner based on their zodiac sign, it is important to look at their element (fire, earth, air, or water) and their modality (cardinal, fixed, and mutable.)

Aries is a fire sign, so they connect really well with other fire signs and most air signs. Fire needs to be tended to by someone who won’t put them out, so it is easy for Aries to feel validated by other fire signs. But fire can’t exist without oxygen, and air signs allow fire signs to be exactly who they want to be without stifling them. 

Aries is also a cardinal sign, meaning they are natural-born leaders and their brains are always teeming with ideas. Because of this, they tend to get along well with fixed and mutable signs. Cardinal signs often seek stability from fixed signs and they admire innovative mutable signs — but that’s not to say they’ll always get along with every fixed and mutable sign. It is possible for two cardinal signs to find love with each other, but due to their stubborn and temperamental nature, they may butt heads every now and then.

Before I get into the best and worst love matches, I want to preface this article by saying that I am in no way implying that these matches will be right for every Aries. If you have found a healthy and stable relationship with a Pisces or a Libra, then by all means, stay where you are loved and celebrated. This list only serves as a bit of advice for those who have not found love yet.

Best Match: Leo


You and Leo have a lot in common. You are both brave and warm-hearted. They find your passion invigorating and you are constantly taken in by their charm. Because they are a fixed sign, you will always feel at home with them. And they will feel like every day is a new adventure with you. Plus, you both always find ways to keep those intimate moments fresh and exciting.

Worst Match: Virgo


Unlike Leo, you and Virgo do not really have anything in common. Neither of you likes to feel stagnated, which is good. But you have different philosophies on how to keep moving forward. You like to live in the moment and come up with quick, sometimes effective, solutions. Virgo has to analyze every detail of a situation to find the best possible outcome. You make them uneasy, and they stifle you.

Best Match: Aquarius


I know what you are thinking. How can vivacious Aries and contemplative Aquarius work so well together? I’m so glad you asked! You and Aquarius complement each other very well. Aquarius is the thunder to your lightning. You will never run out of things to talk about because you are emotionally stimulating and they are mentally stimulating. They may not bounce off the walls like you do, but they are always up for an adventure.

Worst Match: Capricorn


The cardinal ram and the cardinal goat will surely bump heads. You are both leaders but your leadership styles are very different. Capricorns like to be calm and in control at all times or else they become anxious and shut down. You, on the other hand, fly by the seat of your pants. Capricorns think in terms of destinations, whereas you think in terms of journeys. You are just a bit too impulsive for them. 

Best Match: Sagittarius


If you both can manage to control your tempers, this is a great match. Your optimistic view of life will be refreshing to the introspective mutable sign and you find their wanderlust exciting. You both have the tendency to be quite blunt at times, and though you are a bit of a secret softie, you know that their brutal honesty is never malicious. They may often defer to your judgment but you will always value their opinion. 

Worst Match: Cancer


Even though I said earlier that you are a secret softie, you are no match for the moody moon-child. You are a bit too aggressive and optimistic for them and they are too sensitive and cynical for you. These contentious traits will only lead to hurt feelings for both of you. Plus, your need for adventure will clash with their homebody tendencies.

Best Match: Gemini


With your recklessness and sense of adventure, you need a partner who is adaptable. Geminis are able to match your energy perfectly. You are both equally playful and creative. They admire your playfulness and you admire their communicative skills. You are able to gas them up and give them confidence, while they are able to calm you down and bring you peace. 

Worst Match: Taurus


This is a weird one. Aries and Taureans often make wonderful friends. But it is not always a good idea to let that friendship blossom into a relationship. You are both famously stubborn but in remarkably different ways. You have a tendency to be too pushy, while the fixed earth tends to be completely inflexible. However, that is not to say that an Aries and a Taurus can’t work well together. An Aries writer and a Taurean editor could get along just fine. 

Let’s see if my editor leaves that last sentence in. [Editor’s note: 😘 ]
