Aries, Dating & Intimate Relationships

The Warrior.  The Initiator. Dynamic thrust of identity projection. Constant renewal. Motivation. Get up get out and Get something. Independence.

When Archetypal Aries energy is present in intimate relationships, there’s a tremendous focus on impact. On the effect they’ve had on the other person. The continuous question is :”what’s new?”

A static existence without mutual independence is as debilitating as it gets.

The gist of an Aries infused relationship is: “take your resources and explore the world, and I’ll do the same.” Then, we’ll come back and share insights in a manner that benefits us personally and collectively.

In general, what you can expect is a straightforward and shame-free manner of relating. Emotional directness is rarely a problem.Typically, this is a person who’s more concerned with affirmation of their being than apologizing for it.

Because of their focus on identity development, what the Ram seeks in a partner is someone who has found a source of  passionate involvement and stimulation for themselves. They understand that to be deeply focused on what you love is to feel connected to the collective life force.

On a healthy level, the Aries individual desires to “push” their partner to fulfill potential. Always looking for ways to encourage stretching out of their comfort zone.

Dysfunctionally, they become obsessed with competition, feeling as if they have to continuously be “one up” as a source of psychological satisfaction.

Another question for Aries is: “How do I keep the fires burning?”

Aries energy is undoubtedly challenged with maintaining enthusiasm in relationships. With the natural ebb and flow of life, the initial “heat” which is automatically present in the beginning stages of a union must subside or take on a different form.

So, what suits your fancy?

Do you choose air to fan the flames of your passions? More fire to set the world ablaze? Water to create steam? Or, earth to bring structure to your aspirations?

Great astrology raises effective questions.

No matter what you choose, know that you can, and are supposed to have an impact on your partner. You have the capability to become a master motivator and a source of “juice”. Not only by your powerful words, but your life lived as a personal demonstration of how an identity unfolds over time.
