Aries and Scorpio

This is quite likely the most difficult pairing of the Zodiac in terms of achieving harmony. The ability of Aries to give way to others will be severely put to the test by the inherent Scorpio trait to assume control of every situation. Here, it would not be unusual for the Aries partner to do the exact opposite of what Scorpio desires in an attempt to simply be contentious. One of the major problems will be the unreasonable jealousy of the Scorpio native, which is a deep-rooted part of the Scorpio nature and cannot be changed. Thus, Aries may soon become highly claustrophobic if he or she is forced to follow the Scorpio partner’s idea of nesting. Scorpio is of the opinion that the domestic environment is the place to be completely relaxed and isolated from the rest of the world. However, Aries is more interested in being involved in that world to the fullest extent. Therefore, the Aries partner will want to hold parties and have friends dropping in and out most of the time. Consequently, the Scorpio native will be driven to distraction. Generally, those governed by Scorpio mate for life…but this combination could be the exception. Scorpio subjects have certain ideals which their partners are expected to live up to. Any failure on the part of the Aries native to meet these ideals will cause Scorpio to push him or her totally out of the mind and heart. In essence, Scorpio is jealous, overly-demanding and expects total possession. The dominate and dominating nature of Aries will never stand for being dominated. In short, this is not a promising union.

While basking in the first bloom of this relationship, each partner will probably wonder how he or she ever managed apart from the other. These are two Signs who adore power and together, they can achieve almost anything, provided they learn how to share the spotlight. The Scorpio native is very focused by nature and once the sights have been set upon an Aries individual, that individual is most likely totally unable to offer any resistance. In addition, Scorpio will harbor a deeper and more complex devotion to the relationship than will the Aries native. This pair tends to engage in arguments that are both heavy and heated, their connection being highly passionate and often contentious because both have jealous tendencies. The Scorpio partner is liable to be more patient but is also more possessive and can lash out in a nasty fashion when his or her feelings get hurt. Still, despite the differences in emotional involvement, both love risk and enjoy taking chances. If nothing else, this union will never be boring. Aries and Scorpio can have many adventures in each other’s company, although there will be difficulties with mutual understanding. Aries is a true extrovert…totally up-front and open, while Scorpio is more inward…emotional and often manipulative. It may be necessary for these two to call a truce in order to keeping the relationship running on a smooth track.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars and Scorpio is ruled by the the planet Pluto. It is likely that this pair will either end up being staunch allies or deadly enemies. Together, they will have an exciting time of it…both in a physical sense and otherwise…but squabbles will be normal in such a challenge-oriented couple. Aries is governed by the element of Fire while Scorpio is governed by the element of Water. These two elements can be a magnificent blend, one that combines physical action and emotion in order to get things accomplished. Here, Scorpio will be the strategist, helping Aries to slow down and learn the art of planning battles before plunging in headfirst. Aries will teach Scorpio how to let go and move on when efforts have been thwarted. However, Water does have a tendency to dampen Fire and the Scorpio trait toward emotional manipulation will often have such an effect on Aries, virtually drowning much of the Aries enthusiasm. Conversely, too much Fire causes Water to evaporate and when under emotional stress, Scorpio can become exceedingly vindictive. Hence, it will be necessary for this pair to work together and not against each other. Aries is Cardinal in quality and Scorpio is Fixed in quality. Aries can teach Scorpio all about spontaneity…doing things simply for the experience rather than always having an agenda. Scorpio can help Aries to stabilize and finish things rather than constantly moving onto new projects without completing what is already on the table. If both can realize there is a good chance each will be loyal and devoted to each other, they can share leadership…Aries as the initiator and Scorpio as the emotional guide. Since both individuals are winners and refuse to give up, the power of their combined forces will be immense, making for a relationship that will never settle for second best.

In essence, this combination may not be a great match since there is no room for two heads of household and each native is marked by a very dominant temperament. Although Scorpio will appreciate Aries in a physically romantic sense, more mundane interests would constantly be at odds. Plus, Scorpio may become intimidated by the leadership qualities of Aries and this is sure to result in problems. Thus, even though a relationship is possible, it is not likely to come with much longevity.
