WHAT TO EXPECT WITH ARIES
Feisty Aries is goal-oriented and aggressive. Impulsive at worst and daredevil at best, this is one outgoing, impatient sign. Rams have to be first in everything. First to arrive on the date and the first to orgasm.
Aries wants it all, now. Volatile and daring, their libidos are permanently on red-alert and they love to be sexually challenged.
Action-packed Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war. And itÂ¹s not surprising that theyÂ¹re renowned for being pushy, overconfident and feisty.
This of course rubs off on their relationships. If you can keep up with them, or at least keep them chasing after you, then they might find time to stop and get to know you better. Problem is they are so interested in themselves, what they are going to do tomorrow and how theyÂ¹re going to right all the wrongs in the world, that you have to accept youÂ¹re going to be second fiddle to this first violin.
Rams pride themselves on being walking sexbombs. And they do make formidable lovers. Provocative and fiery in bed, theyÂ¹re impulsive, charismatic romantics who want action and drama in all aspects of their life. Although they love to show-off their sexual know-how, they wonÂ¹t be particularly interested in whether theyÂ¹re making the earth move for you too. (Be assertive about your own sexual turn-ons, and theyÂ¹ll rise to the occasion in true crusading style).
But for all their dramatic self-will, the ram is a child at heart. They need adventure, the space to express their temper and a partner who is as independent and spirited as they are. If youÂ¹re an easy catch, they probably wonÂ¹t even bother, and if you donÂ¹t enthuse about their latest crusade or the Harley Davidson bike parked up the road, theyÂ¹ll be off in search of another equal. But if you can match them for courage, challenge and personal freedom, they might just hang around with you rather than hang-glide off into the sunset.
THE ARIES MAN
Aries is the first masculine sign of the zodiac, self-willed and warrior-like. He adores to chase, hunt and be challenged. And if you let him get too close to you too soon, the chances are heÂ¹ll feel itÂ¹s all too easy, so why bother? The ram is motivated by desire. He lives and breathes it, rarely stopping to eat his lunch let alone your nipples. And because he must be permanently on a quest, youÂ¹ll have to either be equally unavailable, or give him a marathon-like run for his money. This is one self-made man, macho and often accused of egotism. However, heÂ¹s no more self-centred than anyone else, just knows that he has a purpose in life, and thatÂ¹s himself, and to prove heÂ¹s a hero and godÂ¹s gift to women. HeÂ¹s looking for an ÅExtraordinary womanÂ¹ who can be as independent and adoring as he is, and will join in all those physical sports, particularly sex.
THE ARIES WOMAN
Miss Aries is one determined heroine. And itÂ¹s unlikely sheÂ¹ll want to scrub your back and cook your dinner every night. In fact, this independent hot-headed lady needs challenge and romance 24/7. And when you do get hunted down by her, youÂ¹ll realise quickly that youÂ¹re in competition with her, both intellectually and in bed. The lady ram sees the sexual arena and love relationships as a chance to be one-up on her man. The battle of the sexes was invented for her, and sheÂ¹ll be the first to point out that men are from Mars but so are women! But her greatest qualities shine through if you treat her as an equal. SheÂ¹s sexy, romantic, self-willed and vain. So give her bags of space, be as adventurous as she is, or more, and youÂ¹ll have a chance to be with one very special exciting woman.

TRACKING DOWN YOUR ARIES
Fast-paced Aries isnÂ¹t the easiest zodiac sign to track down. Their love of thrills and spills, adventure and action, means they wonÂ¹t hang around in one place for long. But if youÂ¹re up for competition, sport and risks, you might be lucky enough to get hunted out yourself.
BAGS OF ENERGY
Aries is always just in one big hurry everywhere they go. In fact, if theyÂ¹re not racing fast cars, beating you to the front of the queue or first to grab a coffee in the corridor, then theyÂ¹ll literally push in front and prove they can get their first. Hard-working and energetic, theyÂ¹re willing to take risks most people wouldn't dream of, and are brilliant at reinventing new ways of doing traditional things, whether in politics or business.
The thing about Aries is that they prefer tracking you down. So it simply pays to be in the right environment, and with luck, youÂ¹ll have to make a run for it and let them hunt you out. Their innate love of action and adventure means they take to extreme sports like fish to water. If youÂ¹re prepared to be a daredevil bungee jumper, surfer, sky-diver or rock climber, then the chances are youÂ¹ll be desirable. ItÂ¹s far more likely youÂ¹ll find Aries hanging out in fast-food restaurants than a six course gourmet restaurant. They just donÂ¹t have the patience. Check out sports shops too.
They just love trying out all that sporty kit.
Not all Aries are up for physical competitiveness. There are many who adore intellectual challenge instead. They make great philosophers, artists, visonaries and gurus. With their love of fighting on behalf of the underdog, youÂ¹re also find them in top positions in the legal profession. In fact, they adore all the theatre of the courtroom and rise dynamically to the challenge of winning a legal case. Aries however, is very rarely at home for long, theyÂ¹d rather be jogging round the park, jumping on a bike or tearing round town painting it red. Be one step ahead and the ram will be ready for a new challenge, you. But try and hunt Aries down, and the chances are theyÂ¹ll be gone before you even get there.
PLACES TO LOOK
THE DANCE FLOOR
Fiery Aries canÂ¹t resist throwing themselves about in a disco or night club.
As long as they can lead the dance, you might find they lead you on to sexier things too.
Whether itÂ¹s a grand prix race or a surferÂ¹s beach, the ram just loves action sports. Ride the waves, cheer at the chequered flag and you might just get spotted.
Get down to your local public meetings and watch Aries stirred into saving the town from oppressors and bureaucrats alike. Flamboyant stuff.
Dive in and watch out for the ones who dive in and out quicker than you.
Bump into them by chance, flash a sexy smile, and wait to be pursued down the street.
ARIES TOP TEN CAREERS
WHAT WORKS FOR HER
SheÂ¹s the ultimate huntress, and the Aries woman just wonÂ¹t take no for an answer. Romantic and feisty sheÂ¹s happy to sweep a man off his feet and is challenging and competitive in the bedroom. ThatÂ¹s why sheÂ¹s looking for a lover who not only can match her for spirit but respects her need for independence too.
ItÂ¹s the hunt and sexual conquest which turns the Aries woman on, just as much as all the steamy action. In fact, if sheÂ¹s ignored or rejected the ram is even more determined to have you. And she will. Fiery Aries thrives on challenging, adrenalin racing relationships, with men who are equally hot-headed, impulsive and potent. SheÂ¹s looking for someone who accepts that she needs to be first in everything, whether it's first in the shower, or the first to win a game of strip poker. When she says she wants sex now, she means now, not later. At parties sheÂ¹s one of the biggest flirts around, and sheÂ¹ll make the decision about whoÂ¹s going to be blessed with her sexy company.
There are times when Aries is a tad reckless, leaping into someone's bed without caring if he's already dating or attached. Ruled by impatient Mars, she needs not only her independence, but a man who's a bit of a local hero and can make her sex life glamourous and stimulating. She needs change and excitement not routine.
HOW TO MAKE HER HORNY
The Aries womanÂ¹s prime astro-erogenous zone begins at the tip of her ear-lobes, extending all around her face, towards her eyes and then up across her forehead. Traditionally Aries rules the head, so start off by nibbling or gently biting her ear-lobes. Next tongue and caress her ear-lobes and push your tongue a little into her ear and whisper your favourite erotic fantasy. Next trace your fingers across her face, along the lines of her cheeks and down her nose. Now youÂ¹ve got to speed things up a little, or sheÂ¹ll get bored, so kneel or stand above her and rub your penis across her temples to give her a real adrenalin surge, and let the battle commence.
Aries really thrives with a partner who'll compete with her for who's going to be on top in bed, or who just adores having pillow fights. Danger and excitement also contribute to her adrenalin surges. SheÂ¹s more likely to ask for sex at any moment of the day when the feeling comes over her. Slow, sensual foreplay isnÂ¹t for Aries. She just wants to get on with it and climax over and over again. ItÂ¹s fast, feisty penetration which electrifies her the most. The more competitive and challenging you are, the more aroused sheÂ¹ll get.
OUT AND ABOUT
Sex in daylight is a real turn-on, especially if she pretends youÂ¹re a stranger sheÂ¹s just met. Try public locations, on the airplane, in the shopping mall, anywhere you can ÅnearlyÂ¹ make an exhibition of yourselves.
The more likely you are to be caught the better her orgasm. Aries is one of the connoisseurs of sex on the move. SheÂ¹ll adore fondling your penis in the car when the traffic lights are red. Mirrors, saucy videos and erotic movies are also her greatest turn ons, and your ram will be in sexual nirvana watching yourself having sex in front of a mirror, or masturbating each other while watching a porn movie.
FAST AND FABULOUS
Electrifying, demanding and provocative, Aries loves to set the pace, to dominate and challenge. Provocative and fiery, she prefers fast, hard stimulation to slow sensual indulgence. And when she really gives her all, she turns into a real tigress. Talk dirty in her ear, your tongue licking her hard against her neck for instant arousal. Her quick responses and multiple orgasms, means she often won't wait for you to come. And she wonÂ¹t be slowed down by anybody. Aries is secretly in need of sexual freedom, and can resort to having sex for the sake of sex, and often sleeps around. Her biggest challenge is to learn to accept that her man isnÂ¹t just a rival to be beaten on an intimate basis. She needs to learn to let go, and at times let you take control so that she can liberate her vulnerable feminine soul, rather than merely act out the dominatrix. DonÂ¹t forget that Aries is passionate, erotic and a secret romantic. An attention seeker, if she feels insecure she can get jealous. Most of all, love her for the moment. DonÂ¹t ask about commitment, and stay independent and very hard to catch. Sexual exclusivity is not in the Aries vocabulary. But match her for sexual potency, and and she might stay longer than she intended.
