Aries in Love
Arians have a pioneering spirit when it comes to affairs of the heart, and a rather naive approach to relationships generally. You learn by experience, slowly: it takes many tangos with Mr Wrong before you realize mother was right all along – marry in haste, repent at leisure. Your passions are easily ignited and just as quickly extinguished, sometimes because familiarity and routine breed disinterest but most often because the thunderbolt of love blinded you to the fact that your Prince Charming had webbed feet. Yes, you are hot-blooded, warm-hearted, giving and highly committed, but not only would you save yourself serious disappointment by taking the time to get to know someone properly but you would also benefit from allowing a guy discover for himself all your manifold virtues. He really doesn’t need a daily bulletin of your assets. Then, there’s your talent for leadership – or shall we just call it what it really is, bossiness. As my lovely Gemini husband said in exasperation to his Aries wife the other day, ‘I’m simply not used to having my life run for me by a five foot two inch woman’.
Love and relationships improve with age, fortunately, but almost always after one or two painful excursions to the divorce court. Once you have discovered what a terrific person you are, and that you can manage perfectly well on your own, you no longer feel the need to sweep each and every man you meet off his feet, just to prove to him and the world what a catch you are. You also learn, by trial and error, that it is better to let the guy kill dragons for you, not the other way around. And the good thing is, that by the time other women’s idea of fun is joining the knitting circle in the old-age home, you’ll be heading off to the Amazon with your much younger man who simply adores you!
