Sexy Matches: The Hot and Not-So-Hot Combinations

You will know right away if this is a hot or not-so-hot combo for you. Aries does not hide feelings or pretend out of politeness. If you feel this fling is not so hot, give it a try for a while, but if there is no fire, patience will not make it happen. No matter what anyone else says, if you and your Aries have a spark, you will know it and enjoy it.

Aries and Aries

A bonfire of passion! These two fire signs are good matches and make energetic lovers. They can keep up with each other and understand impetuous desires. The only drawback is that you will have to agree to alternate being the leader. If one time she is dominant, and the next it is the male Aries, then each of your me-first inclinations are honored.

Also, two Aries together may butt heads over the smallest things, and it is difficult for either to give in. But settling these differences can be wild fun.

Aries and Taurus

Traditionally, fire and earth is not an easy combination, but Aries lights up and amuses Taurus. This combo can be hot because Taurus likes the spark Aries offers. It is good for a fling or a one-night stand as, over time, Aries's fast pace will weary Taurus.

Aries will also stretch Taurus's sexual repertoire to the limit. Both signs are physically strong and have good libidos. For a time they can enjoy their differences. It may not last, but it will be a good love affair.

Aries and Gemini

Fire and air combined with a leadership — cardinal — sign (Aries) and a changeable — mutable — sign (Gemini) mean infinite sexual variety. The combination of these signs might exhaust anyone else because they spin off each other so well. Aries will be glad to lead Gemini into a hot affair, and Gemini will happily follow.

Both signs are fearless sexual experimenters and believe in physical fun. The signs match each other in playfulness, but Aries is the more passionate sign. Unfortunately, Gemini can fool Aries into thinking she is in love when she is tricking him.

Aries and Cancer

Fire (Aries) can make water (Cancer) boil, but water can also put out the fire. This is a not-so-hot combination because the sexual energy of each sign requires very different stimuli. Aries is of the moment, and Cancer wants a steady stream of past history to feel comfortable enough to be intimate. For sex based on aggression, this combination works for a while, but the two signs don't really harmonize. Aries thinks Cancer is too much work, and Cancer thinks Aries is too insensitive.

Essential

If you have gotten to first base with an Aries man, keep the sense of pursuit going. The chase is always part of the sexual merry-go-round that the Aries man enjoys.

Aries and Leo

A happy trine or pairing of red and yellow fire, Aries and Leo complement each other because they are of the same element. There is an inherent competition with these two signs. Aries says, “Me first,” Leo says, “Look at me,” and unless they really work hard, the competition extends into bed. Someone has to give in. Usually it will be Leo, because she will feel it is the magnanimous thing to do. This combo is good for short, hot affairs, and once everything is cooking, a long-term relationship could easily follow.

Aries and Virgo

This is an irritating combination that leaves neither sign satisfied. The elements are fire and earth, but the culprit that makes Aries and Virgo not so hot is their very different needs. Virgo needs careful detailed planning, and Aries hates anything that smacks of schedules and routine.

A late-night affair at the office might be an exciting experience, but more than that will frustrate both signs. Virgo will get off on trying to organize Aries, and Aries will delight in upsetting Virgo's carefully laid plans. This is a search-and-destroy mission, rather than a coming together.

Aries and Libra

The opposites of fire and air here definitely attract each other. This is a sexy affair and a relationship with growth potential if both partners want to mature. It is not a given that Aries and Libra will take up the challenge. Aries says “Me,” and Libra says “We.” You can understand the dichotomy between the two positions. Although each fans the other's flames, there is conflict. But their planetary rulers, Mars and Venus, are the archetypical male and female planets, and that makes for good sex and lots of creative sparks. Aries and Libra could spend a long time battling this one out, with a lot of good times in the sack in the meantime.

Aries and Scorpio

This is a hot, hot — maybe too hot — combo. Even though their elements of fire and water are different, Aries and Scorpio can go where most people don't dare to go. They can be fearless sexual warriors, and neither will shrink from a challenge sexually.

If Aries wants whips, Scorpio says “Let's try chains.” If Scorpio says “Let's do it in the shower,” Aries says “Why not the pool?” The one-upmanship between these signs means lots of creative and possibly kinky sex. Not every Aries and Scorpio is a sexual titan, but the explosive potential exists. These signs like to explore dominance and submission. After a time, an affair between these signs usually doesn't have legs because it is too yang.

Fact

A particularly enjoyable scent for Aries women is the peppery scent of geranium. That and the smell of fresh ginger will get all her juices flowing.

Aries and Sagittarius

These two signs make good-natured lovers. They both are fire signs, and each helps the other feel expansive. They meet with their considerable enthusiasm for life and lust, and are happy to play together. Aries may be the leader, but Sagittarius rarely feels dominated.

If Sagittarius doesn't like something, he just gets on his horse and goes. Aries respects Sagittarius's policy of zero tolerance to compromises in life, likes Sagittarius's built-in BS meter, and wants to behave exactly the same.

Both signs like motion and the opportunity to be sexual in different environments. They don't take life too seriously, and that translates into good bedroom fun. Long term, their great asset is that each knows how to prevent boredom.

Aries and Capricorn

This combo is lusty but difficult. If you narrow your focus to just what happens between the sheets, Aries and Capricorn can have a very good time. They are leadership signs with very different planetary rulers: Mars and Saturn. But think about the ram and the goat; each is a randy animal. The area of conflict is rhythm and decorum.

Aries does not like to spend long sessions exploring another's anatomy. He goes for the gold and then moves on. And Aries does not care who knows or sees his sexual inclinations toward the Goat. He is impetuous and wants to flaunt his flame. Capricorn shudders at this lack of decorum. Saturn wants to fit in with the world, and Aries is interested in leading the world. Keep this love affair a secret if you can, and it will be hot for a while.

Aries and Aquarius

Fire and air are usually hot together, and it is true that these two signs can excite each other. This is not one of the all-time hot combos because Aries is so personally oriented, and Aquarius so group-oriented. Aries does not get the detached coolness of Aquarius and may spend fruitless nights trying to arouse him to the ardor that is the life's breath for Aries. It doesn't work. Between these two signs passion can be momentarily hot because they both understand erratic impulses, and the lack of consistency between the two is a turn-on. At the end of the night, the creative spark is not hot enough to make a good combination for long.

Aries and Pisces

The next-door-neighbor signs are in different elements: fire and water. They can work together because Aries compensates for Pisces's lack of vigor. Aries likes leading Pisces into the nitty-gritty of physical passion. Pisces has her own way of being sexual, but it is not hot and sweaty like Aries. The two can tease and tickle each other, and it will work because they come from different planets. However, in the long run it's no-go between the Fish and the Ram. One is on land, and the other in the sea.
