Scorpio - Aries Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of a Scorpio-Aries love match? How compatible are Scorpio and Aries emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

As far as love compatibility is concerned, some people see this as one of the more challenging Sun Sign combinations, with one sign – Scorpio – ruled by the element of Water and the other – Aries – ruled by the conflicting element of Fire. In reality though, things aren’t necessarily as difficult as they might initially appear.

True, a fundamentally different approach to life – open, direct and spontaneous in the case of Aries – secretive and highly controlled in the case of Scorpio – can give rise to some big disagreements and a lot of mutual criticism. In a long-term relationship, the Ram's compulsive need for personal freedom can sit uncomfortably with Scorpio's controlling tendencies, while to bright and breezy Aries, the Scorpion's brooding intensity can be a huge pain in the ass.

But Scorpio and Aries also have quite a lot in common. Both being ruled by the planet Mars, they are linked by their shared courage and fighting spirit. This allows them to help each other in their common goal of succeeding in seemingly impossible feats and challenges. From Aries – a confident risk-taker – Scorpio can learn to be a little less fixed and a little more flexible, while strong-willed Scorpio can teach Aries to develop more sticking power.

Both Scorpio and Aries have very strong emotional reactions, but the manner in which each sign expresses its feelings is actually like chalk and cheese. Aries’ emotional responses tend to be impulsive, immediate and usually quite short-lived. Scorpio tends to conceal its feelings and finds it hard to let go of anger and sorrows. Basically, Aries is unlikely to hold a grudge, while it takes Scorpio a very long time (if ever!) to forgive and forget.

Easy-come-easy-go Aries may have problems understanding the depth and complexity of Scorpio’s emotions. In particular, it may underestimate its Scorpio partner’s unwillingness ever to give in until it has gotten its own way or wreaked its revenge.


Sexually, the similarly high libido of Scorpio and Aries can make for an intensely passionate and energetic love life. But their shared Martian desire for control and conquest, and difficulty in fully surrendering to the other, can result in an ongoing power struggle that sometimes spills over into physical aggression and makes it hard for them to achieve true harmony. Mutual jealousy is probably the biggest issue, however, between these strongly sexed star signs.


Ferocious arguments and fights, usually resulting from clashes of will or control issues, come with the territory in the case of a Scorpio-Aries pairing. But because both these signs are intensely passionate people who thrive on plenty of conflict, these challenges aren’t necessarily detrimental to their compatibility score. Insecure Scorpio may, however, have a particular problem here with its tendency towards jealousy, which is easily provoked by Aries’ freedom-loving approach.
