The Martian, fiery Aries has traits that make them one of the best friends and lovers anyone could ever ask for. With their can-do attitudes, willingness to stick up for themselves, and forward-moving, risk-taking ways, if you’re looking for someone who will support you in taking charge of your life, whether they be a friend or lover, Aries is definitely the one you want by your side.
Aries As A Great Friend
We all need that one friend that is willing to tell us how it is with no chaser. Aries provides this and then some. While they may not be the most empathetic in terms of sappy emotional displays, if Aries decides that you are a good friend, they’ve got your back. In fact, this is the one zodiac sign that will even fight for their friends because Aries is ruled by Mars which governs battles and wars. Aries can be competitive and even a bit of a sore loser when they’re still in their immature stages, but this competitive nature helps both you and them become the best versions of yourselves. Aries is honest, direct, straightforward, and always encourages you to stand on your own two feet which is why an Aries friend is good to have around.

Now, while Aries is quick to establish a relationship, maintaining one for the long haul is another story. Again, Aries has a short attention span. However, as long as Aries has a partner that is willing to seek out new interests and opportunities and has the willingness to keep active and physical both in and out of the bedroom, Aries is a good partner for those who prefer a direct, honest kind of love.
Straightforward & Direct Dealings
Whether friend or lover, you never have to wonder what Aries is thinking because they are more than willing to tell you. Aries approaches life in a direct manner making their intentions known upfront so that there are no surprises about where they stand. This can be quite refreshing particularly if you are used to dealing with people who come off as cold and/or indecisive. If Aries likes you, they like you, and if they don’t like you…well, they don’t. It’s really that simple.
The Great Hype Man
If you ever need a pick-me-up, Aries is there to help. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries doesn’t have time to get held down by heaviness. They want to experience new things and get on with their life. Aries also doesn’t want to be around people who were dwelling on the past and bogged down by confusion. That’s no fun. It’s not interesting. It reeks of being stuck which is something Aries just won’t tolerate as it goes against Aries’ cardinal, action-oriented nature. If you are going through a tough time in your life where you feel down and out, spend some time with Aries. If nothing else, they will at least help you move beyond your inertia.
Encouraging Your Potential
At their very core, Aries just doesn’t understand why people don’t believe in themselves. This may be somewhat shortsighted, but Aries has an innate confidence that allows them to put themselves first. The last thing Aries wants is to be the dreaded second place when they know that they are a first place, gold medal winner. So, quite naturally if you’ve got an Aries by your side that likes and/or loves you, they want you to win too! The combination of zealous pep talk and chiding to take action from Aries is enough to help motivate you to believe in yourself and take action on your potential.
Providing Some Competitive Edge
When it comes to getting things done, Aries understands the importance of competition. Because Aries often sees life as one big game that they have to win, they have the habit of openly competing with others to themselves to do better. When it comes to their relationships with friends and partners. Aries uses friendly competition to motivate both themselves and you to do better in all aspects of life. For example, if you’re looking to lose 25 pounds, Aries is willing to help by creating some type of competitive fitness challenge. In this way, they use their competitive edge to connect to those they care about while also helping you to do better in life by offering up a challenge to be better than what you are in the moment.
Standing Up For Yourself
If there’s one thing that Aries can’t stand is being taken advantage of or watching other people they care about being pushed around. Ruled by Mars, the God of War, Aries is ready to fight on behalf of themselves and others. If you’re the type of person that has difficulty standing up for yourself, Aries can teach you directly and through osmosis how to adopt a more assertive approach to life. Something as simple as establishing boundaries or learning how to say no in a direct manner is what Aries is all about.
Aries knows better than most that if you don’t look out for yourself, then who will? Yes, this is selfish, but being selfless to no end is of no benefit to anyone, especially if it puts you in the vulnerable space of being taken advantage of and used. Aries is not tolerating any of this, and if you watch Aries carefully, you’ll learn a lot about how to assert yourself in a manner that shows others how to treat you with respect because you command respect for yourself. Take it from the well-known song RESPECT by the iconic Aries soul singer Aretha Franklin, respect is something you have to have for yourself in order to get it from others.
Helping You Take Charge Of Your Life
We all have one life to live, and Aries understands this more than most. Because they are the first zodiac sign, they aren’t caught up in dwelling on the past or even particularly worried about what’s happening in the far-off future. Aries is all about staking claim to the moment with the brimming possibility of making this life what you choose. In the eyes of Aries, it’s your actions that determine where you end up in life…no matter how you started. This sense of becoming the boss of your own life is definitely one of the greatest lessons that Aries offers to all that have the pleasure of being in their presence.
Plus, you’ll even get the opportunity to see Aries take risks, some of which work out nicely and others of which fail miserably. Nevertheless, Aries had the courage to take the risk and keep moving forward which is why they end up being quite successful at whatever they do.
If you’re looking for a friend or lover that will tell it to you like it is, help you move beyond your comfort zones, and encourage you to take charge of your life, look no further than Aries, the fiery, independent, self-starter of the zodiac.
