FAMILY: Aries can’t help competing. They’ll support and encourage you as long as you’re not as good as they are. They don’t like it if you overtake them!
PROFESSIONAL: Aries are quick learners and independent workers. Give them the initiative and they’ll take it. But don’t forget to praise their progress and reward their efforts.

THE CARDINAL FIRE ELEMENT OF ARIES
The 3 fire signs Aries, Leo & Sagittarius are self-confident, spontaneous, energetic, enthusiastic. They follow their instincts before listening to anyone else. They can be demanding and self-centered. The 4 signs Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn share a Cardinal quality which is ambitious and goal-oriented.
Motivated cardinal quality plus the enthusiastic element of Fire makes the 1st zodiac sign actively competitive and very keen to win. Aries can become quite negative and dejected without something definite to aim for, or goals that help them to channel their natural drive in ways that excite and inspire them.
Aries with fellow Fire Signs:
ARIES The best solution is a three-legged race so they can cross the winning line together!
LEO This works well if Aries is ready to take orders and Leo is happy to get a move on.
SAGITTARIUS Make sure you agree on an itinerary. Aries wants to get to the destination while Sagittarius is more interested in the journey.
Aries with Earth Signs:
TAURUS This combination is a bit Hare & Tortoise. Aries is raring to go while Taurus prefers to take their time. If you understand this, you can both win.
VIRGO This pair covers all the corners. Aries provides the motivation and Virgo takes care of the detail.
CAPRICORN These two share an ambitious streak but disagreements arise when Aries demands spur of the moment decisions and Capricorn insists on long-term planning.
Aries with Air Signs:
GEMINI This pair move at the speed of lightning. Aries loves to zoom and Gemini is quite capable of matching the pace.
LIBRA Although it’s an attraction of opposites, this partnership can work so long as Aries is prepared to co-operate when Libra asks for compromise.
AQUARIUS this is an interesting combination as both signs value independence but passionate Aries could be too much for cool Aquarius.
Aries with Water Signs:
CANCER Trust doesn’t come easy to these two. Tactless Aries can speak without thinking and moody Cancerians are easily offended. It’s a creative combination though.
SCORPIO This dynamic duo energise each other with regular sparring matches. But Aries forgive and forget far quicker than brooding Scorpio.
PISCES These two are a Zodiac-style Laurel and Hardy. Aries is decisive and Pisces is dreamy.
Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.
