Aries: March 21 - April 19

The Aries Woman

So you're interested in an Aries Woman? If you are you'd best be ready to be Prince Charming, Casanova, James Bond or whatever other hero she dreams of.

She's usually the one to look for the hero in you, and doesn't need, or wish for, someone to do the little old fashioned things that women born under other signs do; if you're on your way out, she'll likely to be ready before you, put on her own coat, or grab the car keys first.

It's not that she doesn't have a romantic bone in her body; it's just the drive and enthusiasm of the planet Mars that's pushing her on. She's determined to take the lead, and expects you to enjoy her independence and forthrightness.

Can you keep up?

An Aries woman likes being first and likes being right and usually will try to ensure that both these conditions are fulfilled by doing it herself. This might be a problem for a lot of men, who think that the Aries is too aggressive, but it's hard to find anyone who is more fun to be around.

Always one step ahead of the crowd, she's all about getting what she wants, and enjoying herself while doing so. It may be a little tricky to keep up, and easy to become jealous, because the Aries woman prefers the company of men to that of other women.

She is not one to be tamed; she is the type of woman who wants to be enjoyed for who she is.

Don't be her teddy bear

The Aries woman wants, and needs a dynamic and successful partner; she can't stand those who fawn over her. If she likes pets, she'll have them, rather than expecting romantic partners to fill their role.

It would be easy to assume that every time an Aries woman hears a song in which someone is begging to be a "teddy bear" or a slave to the love of another, she has a silent groan; she's looking for the kind of person who is just out of her reach. She wants to put her mate on a pedestal, but will usually choose someone who others have put their already.

Chasing an Aries woman is like chasing a rainbow, except that the Aries wants to do the chasing, and doesn't want to be caught.

Don't be Possessive - Let her be

The Aries woman wants to be proud of the one she loves, and once someone has gained her love, she is fiercely possessive of them. At the same time, she doesn't want to be the target of another's possessiveness. She will expect you to trust her; she insists on having her freedom.

If you begin to question her whereabouts and show signs of jealousy, the relationship is in real trouble.

The fact that she is a tremendously idealistic and passionate person cannot be denied. It's just the balance that has to be struck that makes things difficult for you; you have to find the fine line between being bold and being domineering, or the one between being a challenge and being unresponsive in order to keep her interest.

The Aries woman is a hard one to tame, but if she really loves you, she will give in. Just a little.
