Aries' Planet: ♂ Mars.
Women are generally difficult to understand, and Aries women, in particular, present quite a challenge. However, anyone who voices this discriminatory phrase within her earshot is in for a rough ride. Even the word "woman" in such a context offends her, as she firmly believes that the so-called weaker sex is in no way inferior to men! Who, looking at her energy, firmness, and insatiable zest for life, would dare to say she is wrong?
The Aries woman might not dedicate her precious time to fight for the feminist movement, but her life itself serves as a vibrant illustration of that struggle. She is always first, she is the leader. This applies not only to her career, but also to her attitude towards men and love. In all romantic matters, she is accustomed to taking the lead, not following. So, don't be surprised if she is the first to ask you out on a date, or even be the first to propose.
However, it would be entirely wrong to picture the Aries woman as a kind of commander in a skirt.
Indeed, on one hand, she is naturally endowed with many "masculine" virtues: she is independent, energetic, knows how to achieve her goals and is prone to straightforwardness, even to the point of being intransigent. Her belief in her strength imbues her with inexhaustible optimism and faith in success. Yet, behind all her confidence (which can sometimes be excessive) and her desire to keep everything under her control, hides an astonishingly romantic, delicate nature that dreams of ethereal love and waits for her prince on a white horse. A woman in love, the Aries woman can be incredibly feminine and desirable.
Winning Over an Aries Woman
If you aim to win the attention, love, and respect of an Aries woman, become her knight in shining armor. Only a self-confident, independent, and exceptionally romantic man can conquer her proud heart for long.
Also, keep in mind that an Aries woman adores sincere admiration. She despises flattery and senses it instantly, but if you frequently speak of her virtues, she'll mark a big 'plus' next to your name. As an Aries herself tends to idealize her beloved, she expects the same from you. She may interpret your reticence in expressing emotions as coldness and indifference.
She herself firmly believes in unearthly, fairytale love and attributes her chosen one with all possible virtues. To avoid disappointing her, try to maintain your place on this shaky pedestal, at least partially meeting her elevated expectations of you.
The flip side of Aries' pursuit of the ideal is her complete rejection of criticism. She won't let anyone criticize herself or what she loves, immediately launching a defiant attack. Her offender can only sympathize: in anger, an Aries woman can be sharp-tongued, merciless, and venomous.
Relationship with an Aries Woman
In love and shared life, it's hard to imagine a more possessive character than an Aries woman! She will generously share everything she owns with her partner – her money, love, support, involvement – yet expects no less in return. Moreover, being naturally very jealous, an Aries woman must be absolutely certain of you, otherwise, your marriage won't last a day.
However, not allowing even a hint of flirtation from your side, the Aries woman herself adores the admiring attention of men and may be surrounded by admirers. Well, accept this and learn to trust her: despite her independent behavior, an Aries doesn't even contemplate infidelity. Her Love is capitalized and is not squandered on trifles.
For an Aries woman in a family, the main thing is not to lose her freedom. She must not feel trapped within four walls. Most likely, she won't rush to quit her job after getting married: active pursuits and self-realization are as vital to her as air, they are an integral part of her existence.
As the husband of an Aries woman, be aware of one of her peculiarities: she will make every effort to occupy a dominant position in the family. However, if (heaven forbid) she actually succeeds, she may quickly become disappointed in you. At the same time, a patriarchal scenario is not her cup of tea: her independence and pride are impossible to tame. So, prepare yourself for a battle for a place under the family sun. The best option in life with an Aries woman would be mutual respect and equality in the family.
The Aries Mother
As a mother, an Aries woman is unlikely to give her child excessive attention - her bubbling energy is directed not only at home but also far beyond its boundaries. But her children will almost certainly believe in miracles and magical fairy tales. And just like she did once, they will wait for their prince (or princess) on a white horse.
