Famous Aries-Aries Couples: Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick; Robert Downey, Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker; Zach Braff and Mandy Moore; Steven Segal and Kelly LeBrock; Warren Beatty and Julie Christie; Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova
The couple in Kiss Me Kate (based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew) can generally be considered an Aries-Aries pair. They continually upstage one another, fight like cat and dog and yet are madly in love. These are two fire signs who love the challenge of conquering one another, at which they take turns. The fun of making up later is a bonus. To the outsider it may look like rough riding, what with all that pushing and shoving going on. But these two love to tangle and then ride off in different directions to exercise their independence.
How to Attract an Aries Man as an Aries Woman: If you want to attract an Aries man, you’ve simply got to be a challenge. Just act like he’s not the only man on earth, and it helps if you can show some degree of helplessness (it’s okay to pretend) so that he can come to your rescue. It’s worth the charade. What you are going for with this man is his respect, so don’t ever show weakness. He will not respect you if you back down or have blurry boundaries. If he pushes you psychically push back harder. If he ignores you, do something to get his attention. If he stops calling you, get on with your life and let word get out that you are moving forward. If he confronts you, stand your ground. Speak up for yourself and respond tit for tat. Don’t confuse flirting with other men as a way to attract or keep your Aries man. That’s a sure way to end the relationship.
How to Attract an Aries Woman as an Aries Man: If you want her to notice you, be firm but polite about some disagreement with her. That will earn her respect which is half the battle. As the relationship progresses, she’ll appreciate your macho side, but in the beginning do your best to shield her from your cowboy lifestyle. Try not to shoot your way in and out of Dodge on the first few dates. She has that problem herself; what will get her attention is someone who knows how to be diplomatic and get along. Let her see you have friends and contacts, people with whom you have longstanding, harmonious relationships (I know it’s a stretch, but dig someone up). She’ll find this sort of thing irresistible since she can’t get along with anyone for too long. Once you’ve got her hooked, your independence and drive will keep her on the line.
Degree of Romance: This combination probably has the highest degree of romance possible, with Leo to Leo second. This relationship is all about knights in shining armor, chivalry, dashing heroes, and moments of grand passion. You never have to worry about the romance dying. This is one man who will not be intimidated by a lady ram’s competence and independent spirit. The only trick to keeping the romance alive is that somehow the Aries woman has to seem like a damsel in distress once in a while (as unappealing as that is to her).
Degree of Passion: These are two fire signs: impetuous, impulsive doers who act on their feelings and impulses with little regard for the consequences. If it’s passion you are looking for and you can really stand the heat, go for it!
Degree of Friendship: Two Aries are comrades in arms. This is a couple that will do a lot together. Activities such as mountain climbing, skeet shooting, white water river rafting, and remodeling houses are the kind of things that appeal to them both. It helps if both are fit, athletic, and adventuresome in nature.
Degree of Marriage: The emphasis in this relationship is on personal growth, adventure, conquering new territory, fighting and making up, and challenging one another to new heights of passion and accomplishment. This might be hard to sustain in a day-to-day marriage where a routine is required to raise children, balance a checkbook, and maintain a house and car. For domesticity, you would be better off with another combination. This pair also gets into trouble if one or the other partner becomes dependent for some reason, say because of illness or loss of job, and those things are likely to happen in a long marriage.
Progression of Relationship: This relationship will take off like a sky rocket or not at all. It somehow feeds itself with fanned flames of passion and adventure or it dies a wretched death of disinterest or disrespect. The key is to keep it moving.
Sex: There’s a high degree of openness and spontaneity here. Impulses are welcome and understood. Clothes are always optional, and the moment is always right.
When It’s Over: This relationship can end as quickly as it starts. It may very well close with a fight, and there will be no looking back. Rams are all or nothing players.
