Mars in Aries, Moon in Scorpio Compatibility

This intense union pairs Mars in Aries’ aggression with Moon in Scorpio’s emotional passion. Whatever Aries dishes out, Scorpio will absorb and intensify, until Mars in Aries wonders if he’s bitten off more than he can chew. But the sexual charge between these two should keep them glued together.

Mars in Aries is up for anything. This man of action thrives on pursuit. Blunt and impulsive, he charges into relationships where others fear to tread. His partner should know that if Mars in Aries has stuck around for any length of time, she’s got something that excites him (he gets bored easily). Since this sign is about conflict and sex, there is a connection between the two for Mr. Aries; arguments can double as foreplay, and sex will have an element of challenge.

Moon in Scorpio needs to push the limits. While she is a dedicated lover, eventually she’ll feel dissatisfied if her partner isn’t willing to venture into forbidden territory with her. Moon in Scorpio needs to know that she and her lover can travel to Hell and back, and the trip will make them stronger. She can be rock solid, but also manipulative and demanding if she feels threatened or insecure.

Moon in Scorpio’s magnetism will be an irresistible target for Aries. She’ll appreciate his passionate overtures, but most of his efforts will either bounce off her considerable defenses, or hit her on a level that she’ll never allow him to see. When she’s ready, Scorpio will let down her guard and draw Mars in Aries in. Her all-or-nothing approach will feed his fire, and his boldness will give her hope that she’s finally met someone who’s not scared off by her intensity. Mars in Aries may get overwhelmed by her demands sometimes, but if anyone can handle the Scorpion, it’s the Warrior.

  1. Wow, that’s so crazy. This article caught my eye as I am Mars in Aries and Moon in Scorpio. Didn’t realize it was so directly about the two being compatible. I’m both! Any more info on that?

  2. Awww that’s me and my baby of 4 yrs…..we HAVVVEEEE been through hell and back….you would think I the moon in scorpio was the one who caused all the problems but it was him. I may overwhelm him sometimes but his ability to keep a problem going or always be so aggressive makes me snap back….we love each other so much though. We’re both virgos with opposite moons I(Scorpio) him(Taurus), my leo venus and libra mars somehow balances out his whole chart which includes cancer venus and aries mars. We are back together and I pray this time we can get it right
