These two Mars ruled Signs are passionate, proud but argumentative. They always seek confrontation even when this necessarily implies arguing.

As you can imagine, it is a troubled emotional or professional relationship, and the opposition is very strong. These contrasts originate in the strong difference between these two signs: the spontaneity and simplicity of Aries collide with the complex and introverted character of Scorpio.

Sexual compatibility and intimacy

Aries and Scorpio are signs with an indissoluble bond. Aries is our first breath, Scorpio is our last. They are two sides of the same coin, both ruled by Mars, planet of instincts, of the needs of the body and of sexuality as one of these. When they are in a sexual relationship, it can be difficult to put aside all aggression. Not only are they both ruled by Mars, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto as well. Pluto is known for its destructive qualities, usually related to sexual repression and can intensify all things, primarily sex. So they’re basically a combination of everything we don’t want to deal with when it comes to sex, taboos, and instinctive sexual behavior.


As opposed to sexual compatibility, this problem is easy for them. If you lie, you die. Not literally, of course, but a little lie could easily end their relationship. They are both jealous and possessive by nature. Aries likes to win and be the best lover and partner anyone has ever had. Scorpio wants to be the only one who has ever been loved by his Aries partner. If they have doubts about the other’s actions, it is very likely that they will not last very long.

Communication and intellect

The Aries will likely stamp their foot impatiently as the Scorpio keeps talking about all those deep and meaningful things. From an Aries perspective, this is something no one should think about, let alone talk about it all the time. This would not be expressed as boredom (although this is always an option with Aries), but more as a need to take action and stop being obsessed with everything. Scorpio is too dark and difficult for Aries, just as much as Aries is too superficial from a Scorpio point of view. What they both like is their shared ability to provide a lot of information in just a sentence or two, but this could interfere with their communication even more, since they could say everything they need in a couple of minutes and have nothing to talk about afterwards.


It’s really easy for Scorpio to get hurt here. It seems like they got into this relationship for that reason alone, so they can pay off some kind of karmic debt. Aries will likely never know or understand what happened in the emotional world of Scorpio because she simply did not perceive anything.


It is good that both of them appreciate courage and concrete and clear things. However, they separate in their further processing of these.

While Aries considers that something is finished as soon as it is erased, Scorpio will dig for reasons that wouldn’t be clear, or wasn’t clear in the first place. So when together, they would both feel the need to clear things up, but Scorpio will be obsessed with them even as the problems are resolved and find new details that need to be cleared up, over and over. They need to be productive and completely independent or else they will drive their Aries partner crazy.

Shared activities

It could be said that their main shared activity is sex. Everything else is secondary.


Think of this combination of signs through the more aggressive image of the element of Fire and Water. Fire evaporates water, just like Aries breaks Scorpio’s feelings. Water dulls fire, just as Scorpio wears out Aries. They seem to bring out the worst in each other and it’s no one’s fault, it’s just hard to reconcile so much concentrated energy moving in two different directions. Their relationship is like the nuclear fusion process and is often just too much to handle.
