Characteristics of an Aries woman

Ambitious, adventurous and assertive, the Aries woman is a fiery creature who likes to be in charge. She’s a lady who knows exactly what she wants in life and will boldly go where others fear to tread, dealing head-on with anything that’s thrown at her.

Watch out for her temper, though – little things can spark her off. And it’s never pleasant being on the receiving end of an Aries rant. However, once she’s had her say, all will be forgotten. Family, friends and loved ones know never to hold a grudge.

The Aries woman in love

When the Aries female falls in love, she throws herself whole-heartedly into the relationship. And while not overly romantic, she’ll be passionate and committed. The Aries woman is also very direct, so you’ll know exactly when you’ve made her happy - and when you haven’t!

Hold on tight though, as this lady can’t sit still. And as she’s persuasive too (others may call her bossy!), you’ll be agreeing to abseil down a mountain in no time!

How to date an Aries woman

Being the first sign of the zodiac, the Aries woman is a born leader and likes to be in control, but she’s not after a pushover. She likes a partner with strong opinions who will stand up for what they believe in. Yes, that may mean you often come to blows, but that’s what happens when you love a Fire sign.

She enjoys a challenge and trying new things too, so keep the ideas flowing. Don’t, however, say you’re keen to learn the Argentine tango without really meaning it – your six-week course will be booked the next day.

How NOT to date an Aries woman

The Aries woman will never be content watching TV in her slippers, so keep things exciting. Don’t get complacent, believing she’ll be content in the future having cosy nights in. If she thinks this is what lies ahead, she’ll leave.

Don’t smother an Aries either. She’s a free spirit and doesn’t want to be with someone who appears too needy or behaves all lovey-dovey. Although committed, she needs to believe she’ll always have her freedom – don’t attempt to tie her down.

The perfect date

Thrill her. Turn up unannounced and whisk her off somewhere she’s never been before. And do something active that will appeal to her competitive side. Remember, the Aries female will never pick the easy route following a path up a hill. She’ll clamber all over the rocks and head through a dense forest to reach her destination. Keep her challenged.

And get ready for this, she will play and watch sports with you. So if you fancy going to the football on Saturday afternoon, make sure you buy two tickets.

Compatibility

The Aries woman is outgoing, flirtatious and full of fun – all traits that other Fire signs find hard to resist. As a result, she will find long-lasting love with another Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. The only thing that may come between these couples is competitiveness.

If you’re a Taurus or Virgo, walk away now. You’re a saver and this lady is not smart with money. Your wallet will be empty before you know it.
