Sometimes you just want to know if Mr. or Ms. Hot is hot for you. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was no guessing involved? With the Mars in Aries man or woman, you won’t need to guess: he or she will let you know immediately. Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign, which means he initiates (Cardinal) with enthusiasm and the optimistic (Fire) drive to win. The risk that he may not win is what pushes him to make an attempt in the first place. When natal Mars (the planet of action and sexual energy) is in Aries, a man or woman who is attracted to the same sex, opposite sex or both will not hesitate to signal his or her interest.
The Primal Display
Mars in Aries is the sign of the warrior, so she’ll do something that involves a challenge or chase. She’s an instinctive fighter; you’re not worth having unless there’s some tension whipped up. Watch for obvious displays where she approaches you, buys you a drink, or competes with someone else for your attention. She will make the first move. She likes to assert her will, so she may be pushy or rude, although she probably won’t realize it if she offends you. If she does realize it, she won’t care, because this is her version of foreplay. Her flirting can feel confrontational, like a child who signals their interest by teasing you.
[show_to accesslevel=’All-Access’]Like all Fire signs, Aries is a showoff. If Mars in Aries is attracted to you, he’ll try to impress you with evidence of his athletic prowess (it’s almost guaranteed that he’s into some type of high-octane sport). He’ll want to prove himself by winning your appreciation. In the same vein, nothing turns Mars in Aries on more than a chance to play the hero. In his heart, there lurks a fantasy where he saves you from some type of peril, like a car wreck, burning house, or attacker. Obviously, you’re not going to seek out these situations just to trigger his primal instinct. But if you need help with something (preferably something that requires physical strength/skill, like moving furniture) and he jumps at the chance to offer assistance, he’s probably into you.
I won’t go as far as saying that Mars in Aries will club you over the head and drag you back to her cave, but she’s not subtle. Sex is important to her. There’s no shame or worries about what you (or anyone else) might think about “moving too fast.” Barring any challenging natal aspects to her Mars, her sexual instinct is raw and powerful. She doesn’t care what the rules are, she just knows what she wants. And if that’s you, she’ll let you know very early on. If there’s no obvious indication that she wants to have sex with you, than she’s probably not interested in being anything more than friends.
While it’s easy to figure out if Mars in Aries is hot for you, keeping his or her attention is more complicated. While the chase is an aphrodisiac, he’ll get bored if you’re too unavailable (you show zero interest for an extended period of time, or you’re not ready to get physical as quickly as he is). You don’t have to jump into bed the minute he shows interest (he’d be disappointed if you did) but he doesn’t have much patience for an extended, old-fashioned courtship. If this sounds demanding, welcome to the world of Mars in Aries.
If you’ve reached the point where you and Aries are lovers, know that her flame is not always steady. It’s natural for her attention to be caught by anyone new and exciting, although this is no guarantee that she’ll wander. Even if she’s not continually focused on you, the best way to ensure that you keep her interest is to maintain that level of challenge. She needs to feel that there’s always a little bit more she can win when it comes to you and your attentions. She’s a Cardinal sign, which means she’s always moving forward. You don’t have to play games, but you do have to give her a reason to stay hungry.[/show_to]
