If You're An Aries, This Is The Type Of Person You Should Marry

Finding "the one" isn't exactly a walk in the park. It's more like a hop, skip, and a jump over a fiery pit of lava — and that's under "normal" circumstances. Online dating is exhausting, meeting people in person is next to impossible, and being set-up by friends...yeah, no. With the pandemic wreaking havoc on both platonic and romantic relationships (via The Washington Post), it's hard to imagine that there's a chance for anyone to find real intimacy. 

If you've tried everything else (i.e. swiping until your thumb falls off, pre-COVID blind dates, and good old fashion meet-ups in bars, coffee shops, book stores, etc.), there is one place you can look to find your perfect match: The stars. OK, go ahead and roll your eyes. But honestly, what else are you going to do? So, if you're bored, lonely, and an Aries (March 21 – April 19), this love compatibility brief is for you.

Here are the signs Aries are most compatible with

"If your zodiac sign is Aries, then you are most compatible with Leo," Amy Tripp, MS, LMSW, a professional astrologer and licensed therapist tells Byrdie. "As a fixed sign, Leo has incredible staying power and endurance to balance out Aries' tendency to lose interest. Both signs are dynamic, enthusiastic, and courageous; together this pairing can accomplish a lot in the world." According to Compatible Astrology, Aries are also compatible with Gemini and Sagittarius zodiac signs.

This, of course, is a very broad assumption based on sun signs. To fully understand how compatible you are with another person (based on astrology alone), you'd need to calculate individual planet positions from your partner's birth date and time and then compare the results to your own (via Compatible Astrology). "It's a balancing act in their own personality, as well as with the other person," Constance Stellas, author of the book Sex Signs: Your Perfect Match Is In The Stars, tells Refinery29. "That's what's so fascinating about astrology because it shows how we try to come to wholeness with all of the elements of our chart." The bottom line? There's still hope. While looking to the stars won't guarantee a perfect match, doing a bit of research on what makes you and your potential partner tick could make for a long-lasting relationship.
