These Are the Signs Most (and Least) Compatible With Aries
In dating, natural compatibility has the power to make or break the relationship. When it's not there, success requires both parties to really want to make it work.
And while the best indicator of whether you're a fit comes from truly opening up with each other, it can be handy to have a helpful shorthand—and astrology is just that. If you believe in the zodiac, your signs can be the first clue about whether or not you're meant to be.

Aries and Leo are both equally passionate fire signs, and that enthusiasm shows in any relationship between the two. Both are outgoing and extroverted, and part of that comes from the fact that they need to be acknowledged. Trouble can arise if they happen to compete too much for the spotlight, and it's important that the two signs learn to take turns and lift the other up from time to time. Since both are prone to fiery explosions, outbursts may be common, but understanding comes quickly, and each is soon to forgive and forget.
Aries may be most compatible with the zodiac's third fire sign, Sagittarius. Sag's adventurousness is a great match for Aries' boldness and bravery, and both signs are up for absolutely anything and willing to take risks to experience everything life has to offer. These two will laugh a lot as they explore philosophical, creative and out-there ideas that might baffle anyone else. They're both optimistic and believe that things will work out for the best, and both signs are highly impulsive, they may often find themselves in new trouble together. Lucky for them, they both have the know-how and ability to get themselves out of almost any dicey situation.
Aquarius is an air sign with the power to either huff out or fuel Aries' fire. Both signs are highly independent with their own ways of thinking that happen to make them strong intellectual matches. However, they each have their own unique approach to problems and new situations. Aries is an off-the-cuff thinker who acts on a whim, while Aquarius considers things carefully before making informed decisions. Together, this can make them the ultimate team for solving anything—or a duo that can never be on the same page. They will also need some time apart to fully realize your own dreams, but that will only make their time together all the more special.
Water sign Cancer and fire sign Aries can be a very difficult pairing. Where Aries is brash, Cancer is sensitive, and Aries' aggressive approach can make delicate Cancer retreat even further into their shell. Cancer needs someone who understands their rich and nuanced emotions, while Aries can struggle with offering that kind of support—especially in a new relationship. Cancer also likes to lean on others for support, while Aries prefers to lift themself up when things get tough. In order for these two signs to find common ground, they'll both have to work on tempering their emotions.
Aries and Libra are on opposite sides of the zodiac, and in this case, opposites don't necessarily attract. Libra is a sign characterized by balance, whereas Aries prefers to live in extremes, meaning it can take a lot of talking things through to allow them to see eye-to-eye. Libra prefers to keep the peace at all costs, whereas Aries is more than happy to be assertive and confrontational in order to get to the bottom of things. Libra dislikes committing to a side, but Aries can make important decisions without even thinking. Aries' hot temper will also wear on mellow and friendly Libra—and Libra's lack of passion can do the same.
Aries and Capricorn are both signs that operate around their desire to get things done, but their approaches couldn't be more different. Earth sign Capricorn is all about accomplishment through planning and building a sturdy foundation, while Aries succeeds by doing. In reaching their goals, Capricorn is responsible where Aries is daring—and Aries dislikes the structure imposed by Capricorn while Cap is the mature one, viewing Aries as a bit of a kid. Aries is also willing to try new approaches and experiment, while Capricorn is as traditional as it gets. If this relationship is going to work, both will have to land somewhere in the middle.
