Aries: The Independent Fire Sign
Aries is the first child of the zodiac and is an incredibly independent sign. It finds it odd that other signs want to, theoretically, "return to the womb." As the first child, it witnessed the "birth" of the rest of the signs, and thus sees the importance of a child separating from its mother.
Aries + Aries Compatibility
Due to the independent nature of an Aries, putting two of these fire signs together means automatic competition.
Aries and Leo are two of the most competitive signs of the zodiac. Aries can be pretty blunt—they want to lead and make things happen. Despite their competitive nature, they will communicate well with each other to avoid major conflict. They don't have to fear mincing their words with each other, because they're always on the same wavelength.
With their independent nature and ability to communicate well, an Aries + Aries combination has the potential for amazing compatibility. Read on to learn how to harness your combined energy, navigate the relationship, and recognize the perks of this fiery combination.
How to Harness Your Combined Energy
Springtime opens our eyes to the possibilities of creation. The new year for an Aries begins with the ram in March. Aries, like spring, can be chaotic during this time. The season can't decide whether it wants to be cold, hot, rainy, or snowy.
Utilize Your Creativity
Aries have a high amount of energy—they are a mix of storm systems. You'll find that their energy is constantly swelling. They have so much energy that some people can become overwhelmed. This is why Aries must channel their energy towards creative projects.
After being pent up all winter, once the new year starts, they are itching to exert all of that energy. As a couple, it's a good time for spring cleaning, getting in touch with your spirituality, going on spring break, and filing your taxes.
Embrace Infinite Possibilities
Aries isn't for the faint of heart. You have to be open to the constantly changing tides. People often break up in Aries, during spring break. Exes come back into your life and wishes are fulfilled—Aries is all about the manifestation of reality. When you have two of these people together, it creates friction, energy, and endless possibilities.
Together, and on the same page, this pair is unstoppable. They are likely to travel around the world, change things in their community, or go on soul missions. With so many things to do, it can be overwhelming. Therefore, this couple must be diligent and focus on their creative projects.
Learn Patience Through Self-Reflection
Aries often dwell on their thoughts. As a strong yang-masculine sign, this isn't always what they want to do. But sometimes, without self-reflection, you'll make the same mistakes, come up empty-handed, or frustrate yourself to no end. Aries needs to take wisdom from their neighbor, Pisces (or even Aquarius) to allow their emotions to mature, and to learn patience. Aries doesn't want to be patient. Typically, an Aries wants to take action at all times. This can wear you out and strip you of the energy necessary to get through the day, week, year, and so on.
Navigating an Aries + Aries Relationship
You'll have strong conversations, a passionate sex life, and innovative lives . . . but be careful with how you handle your anger. If you are both having a temper tantrum, it could cause the relationship to unravel. Focus on healthy communication.
Face Problems Together
You can fix a lot of things by coming together in the bedroom, but don't abuse that space to distract you from your problems. You need to look at them head-on and without judgment. Consider Leo and Sagittarius, who have developed strong problem-solving skills. You can learn from them to better manage your future together. Aries is capable of complex thought, which is why the sign is often associated with the mind. There is an awesome amount of electricity in the mind, but you must channel it to utilize it properly.
Communicate in a Healthy Way
Controlled energy will help you get to where you need to be. Don't always let sarcasm, humor, and jest drive the relationship. It's okay to have a romantic side. Be as open with each other as possible. With mutual love and trust, there will be little room for secrecy or shunning—but these are atypical problems for this sign, anyway.
An Aries runs into problems by saying too much with too much aggression. As a result, you will step on each others' toes, but this is okay from time to time.
Aries learns by jumping into things, rather than waiting for a proper explanation. Aries are great at being spontaneous, abstract thinkers. This is partly why they make great leaders.
That being said, don't try to be the leader of the relationship. Consider a shared leadership, where the two of you do your best to guide the relationship. You do not need to carry the burden of the relationship by yourself.
Clean Up Your Messes
The problem with dating someone who has the same sign as you is that a lot of tasks will be doubled, while others will never get done. Aries loves to get things started but often moves on before finishing projects. As a couple, this means that you may end up with a messy house, a lot of unnecessary objects, abandoned hobbies, and the like. You'll both dabble in things to figure out what you like. It will take some discipline to clean up after the messes you produce and stay focused on what really matters.
Be Open to Adventure
Aries are open-minded and adventurous. They like to venture into the world, get their hands dirty, and win at everything. Two Aries together makes for an incredibly intense relationship. You may have heated fights, but you both enjoy this, so it won't tear you down. This match allows both Aries partners to really mobilize in the world and not feel tied down—which is one of the most important aspects of a relationship for an Aries.

Perks of an Aries + Aries Relationship
- You will have a passionate, intense love life that never dies. Aries will do what it can to keep the fire going for many seasons.
- You can experience various parts of the world together as a couple. You may travel to new places or visit parts of your home city that you have never experienced.
- Some relationships thrive on secrets, while some never have secrets. Two Aries will confide in each other about everything. They don't play those kinds of flirtatious games. (Looking at you, Aquarius and Scorpio.)
- There will be a battle of intelligence. Aries is a strong, intelligent sign—so they get the best of both worlds. Aries are known for being sexy and for having Einstein-like brains. (Technically, the biggest sexual organ is the brain.)
- As a couple, you will venture forward into new territory rather than sit by and let the world go by.
- You won't mind saying whatever you think.
- You'll understand each other with ease.
- You'll have passionate, endearing fights.
- You'll grow and better yourself as you learn more from someone similar.
- You'll feel comfortable really quickly with someone that has the same sign.
A Fiery Connection
With two of these fire signs together, you're almost guaranteed to have some fiery competition. But with proper communication channels, your relationship will also be abundant in fiery passion, creativity, and enthusiasm for life. Therefore, if you're interested in another Aries, or if you're looking for assurance that your current Aries relationship will be successful, do not fret. You are twin flames burning bright, and that intensity will only increase when you're together.

Relationships where people are both the same sign can definitely workout -- you'll understand each other and get a double dosage of everything that is essentially you, which can be both wondrous and kind of crazy.

Me and my boyfriend birthday is April 5th everything I read about is true thanks
KniteStarz on May 02, 2019:
Thank you! Pretty much everything I've read has said this won't work, yet I see our differences that can truly make it work, along with the similarities. He is calm, extremely intelligent, mostly quiet, contemplative, and logic based, in many ways. I am passionate, fiery, and much more emotion based. That's not to say he doesn't have those traits. He's just much more the other side of the sign. He's my perfect match, my perfect partner, and my best friend, (and best lover.)
Your write up isn't just based on the typical, it's a ram and a ram, you'll butt heads, you'll never work. It's much more spiritual based. This all sounds so much like us. It's nice to see it written to confirm what I feel. Thank you again.
