This is an extremely difficult combination. Jealousy and the need for control can create conflict, and continuing struggles for dominance may never be entirely resolved. To make matters worse, the fighting styles of these two signs differ. While both tend to be fierce and passionate, Aries is quick to anger and equally quick to forgive and move on, whereas Scorpio is more likely to suffer deep emotional wounds as a result of cruel, careless words (and Scorpios are notorious for harboring grudges).

There also tends to be a clash of lifestyle preferences with this pairing. The typical Scorpio is more solitary, preferring to spend time alone, with a partner, or among small groups of trusted friends, whereas the typical Aries wants to meet a wider variety of people and requires the stimulation of larger, more boisterous gatherings. The Arian need to get out and meet people and to maintain some degree of independence within a relationship is likely to provoke Scorpio’s jealousy. Scorpios want to know where their partners are and what they’re up to at all times so that they can feel secure within their relationships, but Arians resent any behavior they perceive as controlling.

The passion runs high in a romantic relationship between Aries and Scorpio, but getting along day-to-day could prove extremely difficult unless other elements in their natal zodiacs are more compatible (or their ascendants are located in more easy-going signs). In a best-case scenario, these two will manage to reign in their forceful personalities so that they can enjoy the excitement and intellectual stimulation of this connection without having it blow up on a regular basis until there is nothing left worth saving.

On the plus side, there is some common ground on which these two can build a relationship. Both signs tend to be courageous risk takers, so if they find shared interests that involve some degree of danger and excitement, mutual hobbies may hold them together. If other elements in their natal zodiacs bring their temperaments into better alignment, this can be an interesting match. However, in a worst-case scenario, these two will fight frequently and viciously until the relationship is utterly destroyed.

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.
