This tends to be a fun, lively, and playful combination, though with two headstrong, competitive individuals, there is also the potential for conflict. Two Aries may struggle for dominance within a relationship, and when their opinions or preferences diverge, neither is willing to give in or even compromise. This can lead to clashes, but although Aries are quick to anger, they are equally quick to forgive. Tempers flare swiftly and recede just as fast.
Two Aries will often compete with one another, and this can be fun or nasty, depending on whether it takes the form of friendly or hostile rivalry. Due to their competitive natures, the Aries-Aries pairing may work better when these two have separate interests and different goals so that they’re not trying to outdo one another in the same arena.
Aries individuals will respect one another’s needs for independence and excitement, and although they can be passionate, they are unlikely to be overly emotional or clingy with each other. This pair can seek new experiences together and support one another’s mutual love of challenge and adventure. In fact, there is a risk that they will encourage each other toward ever greater risk taking and general recklessness, as neither is likely to show any restraint in this area. Both are impulsive, which can get them into trouble individually and as a pair.
Aries people tend to be active and sociable, so lifestyle preferences should be well-matched with this pairing. These two will stay busy and have a lot going on in their lives (Arians grow restless when they don’t pack their lives with events and activities). In the social sphere, both will want to be the center of attention, which could create problems in some Aries-Aries relationships.
Aries people are natural entrepreneurs, so these two may also go into business together. Both have a flair for self-promotion and love to start new projects, though they’ll probably need someone else to manage the finer details.
An Aries-Aries pairing is usually characterized by optimism. Even if these two individuals fight or fall upon hard times, they will expect things to work out in the end. Both like a good challenge and they’re actually more likely to grow bored and wander off if things become too peaceful and steady than to run away from difficult situations.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
