Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is also one of the most vibrant and active signs. They are symbolically represented by the ram and are known for their determination and quick mindedness. Their ruling planet is mars, the God of War and is also the planet of energy action or desire. Aries is a Fire Sign and Virgo is an Earth Sign. Where Aries is all fiery impetuosity, Virgo is grounded practicality. Virgo weighs all the options before devoting any serious effort, while Aries simply sees what they want and dives in! This is true both in career and in personal relationships — which can be something of a stumbling block.
Aries and Gemini is a great match because you have so much in common. You both get bored easily, seek excitement, need personal space and freedom, love debates and like to do everything at 100 miles per hour.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Gemini man or Gemini woman.
Zodiac vs horoscope. The real beauty of this pairing is that while you're intrinsically a more passionate person, your Gemini is more of a mental person and a natural chameleon - your partner will 'copy' your style, and become just as passionate.
Better yet, they'll often do so while discarding all the bad habits which you sometimes get criticized for (such as being too aggressive), while keeping all the good stuff people love about you! (such as being bold and straight to the point)
You're the more aggressive partner, but your Gemini won't have a problem with you leading the way while they pour out ideas on where to go and what to do next. You're a physical person and your Gemini is an intellectual person, making for a great team in this area.
One very nice aspect of this relationship is that it will be harder to offend your Gemini than most other people, and if you do it will be soon forgotten (and no, don't take that as a challenge! You can certainly offend them, they're just a lot more thick skinned than most).
The worst you'll get is a tongue lashing and possibly a few wise cracks. You both enjoy a good debate, and your partner is verbally skilled enough to defuse the worst and keep the best when it comes to discussions.
Your biggest problem as a team will be a lack of foresight, and a lack of follow-through on projects. Both of you love starting and hate finishing. More to the point you'll both get distracted by an even better idea shortly after you start anything!
However, as neither of you are big on (boring!) long term strategy or maximising efficiency for results this actually works fairly well providing a constant supply of short term excitement which you both enjoy.
For some Aries the chemistry here may not be quite as intense as with people you don't get along with (lets be blunt, some of you need a certain level of conflict to really get the fires burning!) it will however be among the most intense for non-love-hate relationships. Your passion, inhibition and spontaneity will be both welcomed and encouraged.
It's likely you will eventually become the more dominant partner in the bedroom, and your Gemini will likely love every minute of it!
As a side note, Gemini's often enjoy talking about sex, so if you're a bold Aries (go on, admit it!) then don't hesitate to tell them what you plan to do to them, both before and during!
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
This is a great match, and you compliment each other in nearly every respect. You have much in common, and will find your Aries lover to be the perfect fuel to fire you up, and then act on the endless stream of ideas which you produce as a result. It makes for big circle of fun!
You both love communicating, and constantly look for excitement. Aries is drawn to your intelligence, and you're drawn to how spontaneous, genuine and dynamic they are.
Aries is more naturally passionate and adventurous than you are, and you'll enjoy both traits, whilst gradually adopting (being corrupted by?!) them. You'll be a constant source of inspiration to each other. Your Aries will almost certainly bring out your passionate and spontaneous side in this respect.
Aries are also more aggressive by nature, a setup which suits you well when your partner is this exciting. The match will allow you to focus more on the role of think-tank, keeping you both supplied with fun ideas to act on.
Neither of you is overly emotional, needy or jealous, and Aries will shrug off the things that other signs might criticize you for. Meanwhile your Aries lover is dynamic enough to keep you on your toes.
Neither of you want to be tied down or make a commitment too early in a relationship, but this relationship is exciting enough that neither of you will want to stray!
Both of you love starting things, and neither likes finishing them. Don't be surprised if you leave a trail of started projects, each replaced by something bigger and better. Of course this provides constant entertainment, so neither of you will have a problem with it.
Aries are both exciting and often verbal lovers, both aspects you'll appreciate and enjoy. You'll love the sexual directness and inhibition of your partner, and will find yourself becoming increasingly daring to keep pace (see my book suggestion above for Aries if you haven't already, and make sure they buy it! No Gemini has complained to me so far.)
Aries typically doesn't have a problem talking dirty with a little nudge, and once they realize how much you enjoy that, it will keep you entertained for years. If anyone can hold your interest in the bedroom, your Aries can!
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level. To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you, with a real astrology reading..
For details of the most common pros and cons of relationships with each of the other signs I have a separate index of articles on Aries compatibility and Gemini compatibility

This relationship takes time to develop as each partner must learn to understand where the other is coming from. Aries and Virgo can seem like total opposites: While Aries is brash, dominant and aggressive, always jumping into new things and almost always impatient, Virgo is detail-oriented and quiet, even shy, and works patiently toward long-term goals. Aries’s energy is fiery and impetuous while Virgo’s is much slower and more grounded. It’s these very differences, however, that can teach Aries and Virgo so much, once they just look beneath one another’s surfaces to see what lies beneath.
It’s these very differences, however, that can teach Aries and Virgo so much, once they just look beneath one another’s surfaces to see what lies beneath.
Early in the relationship, Aries and Virgo may see nothing but one another’s faults. Virgo thinks Aries is way too brash, and Aries thinks Virgo is extremely fussy. But if they focus on one another’s strengths instead, they’ll discover a great deal. Aries teaches Virgo about fun and excitement, about the spontaneity that is often missing in Virgo’s life. Virgo teaches Aries patience and attention to detail, the knowledge that the little things — and moments — are important too. Aries can teach their Virgo lover to take things less seriously. Virgo can teach Aries to be polite and value hard work.
Aries wants to rush out and fight without wasting time preplanning or strategizing. Conversely, Virgo wants to analyze everything and work out all the details before acting. These are such opposite approaches that strife can result. Both Signs must make a conscious effort to learn from one another’s method rather than letting their partner’s natural rhythm bother to the point of distraction.
Where Aries is all fiery impetuosity, Virgo is grounded practicality. Virgo weighs all the options before devoting any serious effort, while Aries simply sees what they want and dives in! This is true both in career and in personal relationships — which can be something of a stumbling block. If Aries has decided it’s Virgo they want, they might be frustrated for some time to come, waiting for Virgo to make up their mind about whether the relationship is a good idea.
Virgo doesn’t need to be the leader or the boss; they’re glad to follow another’s suggestion once they decide it’s a viable one. Aries, on the other hand, wants to make those suggestions — every time. This is a beneficial dynamic if these two Signs are working as a team toward a common goal.
Their great effectiveness as a team — business or personal. Their personalities, opposite in so many ways, make for a highly complementary relationship.
