If you’ve ever dated an Aries, you’ve experienced the charm that oozes out of his pores. As a passionate sign, Aries can lure you in with a spellbinding energy that is both adventurous and refreshing. The charismatic Ram has a tendency to go after whatever (or whomever) he desires. He will pursue what he believes to be rightfully his, which may just be you—like it or not. It’s difficult to comprehend how this self-proclaimed “Don Juan” could turn off the opposite sex. But it is possible, and it boils down to his maddening temper tantrums.
Aries’ position as the first sign of the zodiac makes the grown adult a little immature on an emotional level. The key phrase used when describing Aries is “I Am;” having his needs fulfilled is a top priority. Aries has a natural disdain for the word “no,” and will shamelessly incite a riot should his energy be thwarted. His temper may cool as quickly as it rises, but this sign is difficult to be around when he doesn’t get his way. While his first and second outbursts may be mildly entertaining, it’s the third and fourth that can be embarrassing for anyone in plain sight.
Ruled by warrior planet Mars, Aries has a notorious reputation for being the ultimate aggressor. The all powerful Zeus was the father of Ares in Greek mythology; it’s no wonder this sign seems to carry with it an inflated sense of entitlement. The cardinal force of Aries moves with heartfelt intention, and those intentions can at times be completely selfish. In relationships, it is essential to treat Aries like the god he claims to embody. Otherwise, an Aries is bound to hold his breath until he gets what he wants—or lose complete consciousness—whichever comes first.
Thankfully, this sign does mellow with age, and is better equipped to make use of a few self-calming techniques. As the object of Aries’ affection, you will eventually discover how to tune out all the noise. The chosen mate would ideally have a lot of Libran energy in the birth chart, offering a nice balance to Aries’ imbalanced temperament. But if all else fails, try instigating the situation by going tit for tat with the Ram. The ensuing frenzy will lead to a bedroom brawl, a battlefield that Aries is known to conquer and rule.
