Scorpio is a Water sign, and Aries is a Fire sign. These two may appear to be opposites, but they have far more in common than they initially think. Both Aries and Scorpio share a common ruler: Mars, the Planet of Action. Mars imbues you both with tremendous passion, inner strength, courage, vitality, energy, and enthusiasm for life. When these two are together, they motivate each other to excel, they push each other past each other’s comfort zones, they support each other and encourage each other. However, they can also be extremely competitive with one another, because they both seek to win above all else. If they are both on the same career path or share the same hobby, things can get ugly if they are aiming for the same prize.

The differences between Aries and Scorpio are significant. Although both of them have a short temper and you lose your patience easily, Aries tends to forgive and forget much more easily than Scorpio. When hurt or deceived, Scorpio tends to hold on to that hurt and will remember it forever. Scorpio has a tendency to hold a grudge and seek revenge. That’s why Aries has to be very careful with the words they use when talking to Scorpio. Both Aries and Scorpio have a tendency to say things they do not mean when they are angry, but that could lead to dreadful explosions.

Scorpio is likely to be more emotionally invested into the relationship than Aries first appears to be. Scorpio bonds deeply and intensely to the one they love, and Scorpio shows their devotion and appreciation for their partner by paying attention to the little things. Scorpio seeks the same care and affection in return, but because Aries is more action-oriented, they may not be as sentimental and emotional as Scorpio is, which could lead to a conflict in the way they both express their love. When Scorpio and Aries get in a fight, it becomes stormy, fiery, and explosive. It is advised for them both to partake in physical activities together to unleash their intensity and propensity to go to extremes.

Although Scorpio and Aries have somewhat contrasting approaches on life and love, they both share a love of passion, freedom, independence, adventure, and romance. If they are able to accept each other for who they are and not try to manipulate one another into changing, then they have great chances of experiencing a lasting and fulfilling relationship.
