Aries in Love
By Donna Page
When Aries is in love they act like a bee on a mission to the nectar. Straight to the flower it is; no messing around - give me that nectar. If you are in love with an Aries, astrology can help you understand the motivation beneath their actions. If you are an Aries, astrology will point to what feels natural for you and allow you to determine if your natural responses will give you what you want.
Aries is ruled by Mars and Mars is the planet that supports us in acquiring our desires and passions. Therefore, when Aries wants something, especially love, Aries will naturally put much effort and focus on obtaining the object of affection. "All is fair in love and war" is an Aries concept.
If you are an Aries it is important to remember that unless you are in love with a person who also has strong Aries you can come off pushy and aggressive. When you are in a relationship it will be normal for you to fight or state your opinion if something is happening that you do not agree with. After all, if you did not care why even bother?
As an Aries it is vital for your long term love relationship to be with someone who understands, and finds attractive, this quality. If the person you love and care about does not understand your need to tell them how you would do something, then there will be problems. Your love also will have to understand you when you get upset that you blow off steam and then are able to put it behind you and move forward.
An Aries is meant to face and deal with a problem as it arises. No sleeping on the disagreement - lets have it out now! With Mars ruling Aries the test of wills is always part of the relationship path.
If you are an Aries and you have been struggling in your love life, there are a few questions for self examination. The first questions are: are you giving up too much of who you are and what you want? Astrology is interesting, just because you are an Aries does not mean that you have mastered the qualities of Aries yet. Mastering the positive side of the signs is part of the fate of your chart.
An Aries first must feel secure and strong within and feel that they deserve to have what they want. Otherwise relationships will keep breaking up so you are alone again until you feel that you have the right to ask for what you want. The tricky part is you will know you have a right to get what you want in life; however, not having a childish "I have to have my way." It is a mature place of understanding that everyone has the right to want what is good for them and in asking for what you want you will risk and know the other person may not want the same thing.
The other side of the Aries' troubles in love is that you could be too demanding. Do you feel that you have to get what you want? Is it all about you? Do you feel that the person you are with never agrees with what you want, think, and believe about the relationship? An Aries finds solution on the other side of the zodiac, and that is Libra, the sign of putting yourself into someone else's shoes. What do they want? How do they feel?
It is an interesting path for Aries in love. On the one hand it is vital for you to be self-expressive, be with someone who adores your spunk and willingness to call someone out on their stuff. But on the other hand, if you are operating on an unconscious vibe, it is all about me. That will not work either.
Astrology gives us the gift of awareness. Once you become aware of your motivations and actions it will free you up to act another way if you deem it appropriate. As an Aries, you want what you want and you want it now. However your gut reaction in how to have it does not always work. Stepping back from the situation, looking from another perspective, and getting clear on your intentions will support you in choosing the right form of action needed that aligns with your higher self.
