Aries - Scorpio
Scorpio's romantic aspect is based in intense deep inner feelings and Aries is in most everything for the energy and fun ot it. At first glance, this does not look like a "natural", but there are always reasons to hope. Aries is Cardinal and Fire. Scorpio is Fixed and Water. Looking at it on the surface, Aries is fiery and fast, intelligent and into "movement". Scorpio is intense, achievement-oriented and does not necessarily think movement has any particular advantage, unless there is a strong reason for it. Scorpio has a stubborn quality, somewhat like Cancer, but stubborn, not necessarily for home, but whatever Scorpio considers to be personally important. With the Scorpio, they don't separate personal from significant and important. If they are feeling it, it is personal of course, but it is by their nature, not trivial or subjective, but rather it is "it". They function from the base of their being.
The Aries in pursuit of the Scorpio would find a compelling and magnetic individual. Scorpio could be attracted to a youthful, high energy person. Aries does not come off as frivolous and silly, so Scorpio likes that. Both of these are "strong" in their presentations of themselves. The Scorpio and the Aries could create a smoldering fire. Compatibility is going to probably depend on individual charts. It is not impossible to imagine. It could be a "high end" Hollywood type dynamic union, but also, it could end like one. No one is going to back down here. Neither fights for the fun of it, but both are good at it. If it lasted, the Scorpio would probably get its agenda, and Aries would be free enough to pursue its interests.
Since Aries and Scorpio are dynamic persons and neither are "lazy", they could share much in values and pursuits. These two, headed in the same direction, could make quite a partnership. Positively speaking, these signs could be a public and dynamic pair. Regardless of how the genders work, it seems a pairing that could be serious. Scorpio would have to vote yes on most all issues, and Aries would have to spend their time figuring out what they considered worth making an issue. The Scorpio could enjoy the Aries personality. The Aries would have to really love the Scorpio, in order to overlook the stubborn insistences of what appear to be less important things. And this would be on a day to day basis.
Aries and Scorpio would have a very high romance factor, as long as Scorpio stayed a bit light-hearted and Aries enjoyed "intense romance". Don't take any fights into the boudoir and things could go great. Any current battle brought into the bedroom would probably play itself out there.
Aries and Scorpio can both defend themselves, and also, take an offensive position. Conflict would almost be prophecied with these two. Discussions could be long or short, depending on how angry Scorpio got. Neither of these signs will be intimidated, and neither would give in, just to give in. Both could be high-minded enough to make concessions, but they would have to see strong reasons for doing so. This is not a death pronouncement, It just means they will have to work things out. The unexpressed, the unaired, the hidden could spell doom. The discussions could be noisy, but healthful.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Scorpio can take time for inner contemplation, and quiet periods could be helpful in an overall sense. Aries might take some convincing that a little peace and quiet could be good for them. A Biblical phrase might fit here: "Peace, peace and there is no peace". A good attempt at peace and boredom might be the "spiritual correction" that each needs, but one that could slip away.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Scorpio and Aries are a good "keep up the interest" signs, but Aries could tire of Scorpion "gravity". The pull of Aries trying to always accommodate Scorpio could fatigue Aries, and Scorpio always watching what Aries is doing next, could be distracting from Scorpio's main purposes. The basic material is there for potential long term high interest, it's just difficult to know how the two will act after a high-mileage relationship.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns, as time goes on. Others are not. Scorpio could use the 7 year itch as motivation to make a fundamental change. Aries could use the 7 year itch to "finally get light-hearted again". If they truly are committed to each other, the seriousness of Scorpion values could save them. As I have said in other analyses, Aries could stumble into a new relationship, not knowing that its subconscious might be overly engaged in the prospect of infidelity.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 50% Positive Long Term - 70% Short Term. This, as a young relationship, might have tons of appeal. Time is not necessarily the friend here. Scorpio can put on weight, if frustrated, but Aries could find Scorpio more appealing as time goes on, if Scorpio lightened up. The newer this relationship is, the more that there is a possibility that it will work. But once they get going, complications of Scorpion intensity and Arian ego could make for a difficult future.
