Aries and Scorpio Traits
Aries: March 21 – April 19
In the traditions of horoscopic astrology, Aries occupies the “First House” of the zodiac. In the spiritual sense, a “house” is nothing more than an energy structure that holds supernatural traits.
If you were to open the door to this house and walk inside, you would immediately detect the energies of optimism and passion. You would also pick up on vibrations of confidence and courage.
Aries is exclusively ruled by the planet Mars. This is important to know because it is this planet that gives the sign all of its traits – and powers.
Mars is 141 million miles from our sun. It symbolizes passion, energy, desire, and action. But the ancients also saw the planet as a source of impatience and bad tempers (Orion, 2007).

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
Persons born under the Scorpio sign fall into the “Eighth House” in astrology. If you were to walk through the front door of this home, you would quickly sense energies that symbolized mystery, logic, intimacy, and bonding.
The sign is ruled by two planets that couldn’t be more different if they tried. The first is Pluto – a cold and distant object. The second is Mars; the same celestial body that governs the ram.
Pluto is located a jaw dropping 737 miles from earth and considered the last known planetoid in our solar system. It also happens to be deeply puzzling to astronomers.
Mars, being much closer to our sun, is hot.
Scorpio draws energies from both celestial bodies, pulling in heat from Mars and iciness from Pluto. It is for this reason Scorpios vibe out a mysterious but magnetic persona, all at once.
Main Scorpio Traits Include (Positive and Negative):
- Highly sexual

Cardinal Signs and Fixed Signs
In horoscopic astrology, the ancients teach us that Aries is a cardinal sign. But what does that mean? In plain-speak, cardinal signs hold the power to move and change. It is for this reason we see them at the beginning of each new season.
Conversely, as lore would have it, fixed signs are the opposite. They aren’t the greatest with change and struggle with being flexible. But fixed signs also represent stability and familiarity – something that can be positive in personal relationships.
Now that we have examined the basic traits of each sign, it’s time to examine the 7 ways Scorpio and Aries match in love and sex.
1. Sexual Energy
The physical attraction between Scorpio and Aries is powerful. Many believe the two don’t share chemistry but that simply isn’t true. In fact, their chemistry is palatable.
The reason is simple.
Aries loves the flesh and can become addicted to carnal connections. Scorpio vibrates on this plain too because both signs share the ruling planet of Mars.
However, the real reason they mesh so well in the bedroom is that Aries connects to the physical whereas Scorpio the emotional.
What one sign lacks the other compensates for. When Aries becomes too heated, Scorpio has an uncanny way of cooling the ram down. When this happens, an emotional opening occurs that lets Scorpio deeply connect with the ram’s soul.
This type of connection is magnetic and intoxicating for the ram, causing it to return again and again for intimacy.
Additionally, Aries prefers to initiate sexy-time. Scorpio is completely fine with this and can intuit what the ram wants. The challenges come when Aries wants to dominate; something Scorpios simply cannot and will not allow to happen.
And therein lies their dance – a dance of intimacy that can be fun, intense, and passionate.
This is not to say there won’t be problems. There will be. But if both signs can work through the need to control, the bedroom experience can be extremely explosive.
Conventional wisdom holds that Aries and Scorpio struggle in matters of love. The reality is both are drawn to each other in ways that defy logic.
While it is true that Aries has problems intuiting the feelings of others, this doesn’t mean the ram is emotionally deaf. It can formulate strong bonds but it needs to be paired with the right sign.
This is where Scorpio comes in. After the initial courtship, Scorpio and Aries form a psychic link. In turn, trust increases, thereby deepening love between the two zodiacs.
Despite the ram’s tough demeanor, it can be a very affectionate, warm, and loving companion in relationships. What draws Scorpio to Aries is the ram’s sense of competitiveness. In turn, Aries is drawn to the Scorpion because of its sense of strength.
In many ways, the sometimes frantic energy of Aries becomes balanced by Scorpios calm presence. Conversely, Scorpio’s intensity is chilled by Aries playfulness.
When you think of love between these two signs, it is important to view them through the lens of practicality. Each offers what the does not have.
During the beginning stages of courtship, trust between both is low. There are a number of reasons for this but mostly because Scorpio is distrustful by nature.
It doesn’t help that Aries can be a major flirt; something the sign uses an extension of its playful nature. When Scorpio sees this, it becomes enraged. The problem is the ram doesn’t always know this.
Why? Because Scorpio is a master a concealing what it truly feels. But at some point, the arachnid’s true emotions become known; usually in a fit of jealousy. It is only then that the ram understands how its flirtatious nature can be problematic.
At some point, a time of choosing must occur. Specifically, the ram must decide if it will place boundaries around its wandering eye and remain physically and emotionally loyal.
Should the ram decide to do this, the level of trust between the two signs increases dramatically.

If there is one area where there exists a struggle, it is with matters of money. The primary reason relates to how both signs view the dollar.
Scorpio is a miser. It spends money on practical things and prefers to sock away cash for a rainy day. On the flipside, Aries likes excitement and stimulation; activities it will spend cash on in sometimes impulsive ways.
In personal relationships, both have the power to teach one another financial lessons. Aries can impart insight on the importance of fun. Scorpio can share wisdom on saving money for the future.
Once both signs come to an understanding, there can be a healthy balance. But this doesn’t happen overnight. Patience is absolutely required.
Earlier, we compared and contrasted fire signs and water signs. While the two are completely opposite in their traits, it is their differences that draws them together.
Aries is focused on two life areas: (1) The here and now and (2) doing. Almost neurotically, the sign is concerned with challenging itself and thinking outside of the box.
On the other hand, the Scorpion mind is concerned with the afterlife, transformation, and renewal.
Aries helps to pull Scorpio away from its future-focused thoughts and into the present. This ability on Scorpio can only happen with a cardinal sign – meaning Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
On the flipside, Scorpio encourages Aries to reinvent itself and not be so singular in focus.
Working in tandem, both can stimulate one another’s minds, making way for powerful conversations.
Fire signs and water signs are thought to struggle with communication. But is that true? The answer is mostly, yes however, in the case of Scorpio and Aries, this rule does not apply.
The reason is simple. Both signs are straight forward. There is no hidden meaning behind what is being said. Scorpio tends to see things in black or white and Aries generally does the same.
When problems do occur, it is usually because Scorpio becomes overly sensitive and misunderstands the intent behind the ram’s words.
Once both signs get to know one another and their style of communication, conversation is generally free flowing. One caveat here is that Aries must recognize Scorpio can empathically read what the ram is feeling. This means trying to conceal emotions is futile.
Finally, both signs need to be mindful of being too blunt.
A strong area of bonding between Aries and Scorpio relates to interests. Both signs are adventurous with Aries having a special chip for trying new things.
Scorpio is drawn towards the water whereas Aries towards the mountains; the natural habitat for the ram.
As a couple, both enjoy hiking, boating, skiing, and even fishing. Sometimes, Scorpio struggles with moving away from its fixed and familiar nature. This is where Aries can give Scorpio a swift kick in the behind to get it to try something new.
The one area where conflict occurs relates to political beliefs. Both hold strong opinions and both are stubborn. But it is their differences that draw them together.
But once duo formulates a bond, it is difficult to keep them apart.
In fact, they tend to stay together for many years.
