The idealist in you would probably like to believe in a world where everyone can get along with anyone, regardless of race, sexuality, or zodiac sign. However, the reality is far messier and much more complicated, so much so that chaos has been written in the stars too.

Still, in terms of relationships and most other things, where there’s bad, there’s also good. For a zodiac sign like Aries, it can be a bit tricky to figure out which. To help you out with that, here are 6 zodiac signs that can either make good friends or evil enemies for an Aries.

6 Zodiac Signs That Make Good Friends or Bad Enemies for an Aries

The Best Friends an Aries Could Ever Have 

1. Gemini

An Aries always has that spark in their eye that can tell you one (or both!) of the following things: 1) they’re the most charming, likable person you’ll ever meet, and/or 2) they’re a daredevil that’s up to no good. All of that is right up a Gemini’s alley.

These two signs share the same thirst for all things fun and exciting. A Gemini is always down for the next crazy thing that an Aries cooks up. These two have the best time together, which makes for a life-long friendship.

2. Libra

The extroverted, people-loving Libra can also find a great friend in an Aries. There’s no doubt that this air sign can keep up with Aries’ demands for positive attention. Being ruled by Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, Libra is more than happy to fan Aries’ flame, even if that means they have to take a step back from the spotlight. 

3. Aries

Who else can do a better job of running at the speed of an Aries but a fellow Aries? Since they both look for challenging, stimulating friendships, they no longer have to look any further than their own sign.

That said, a company between these two can take a wrong turn if things ever become too serious. This is because a situation could come up where they both want to take charge and be the center of attention. So, it may be best to keep things light and comfortable for this particular same-sign friendship, so nothing gets burned to the ground.

The Worst Enemies an Aries Could Ever Make

1. Cancer

A fire sign and a water sign isn’t the best pairing – and for good, obvious reasons. A Cancer’s needy nature can quickly dampen an Aries.

Since the Ram values its independence above everything else, it is effortless for them to feel suffocated by the well-intentioned Crab. Meanwhile, a Cancer tends to get effortlessly offended by their own perceptions of an Aries’ emotional availability. It’s really just a whole lot of drama that no one needs. 

2. Leo

The king of the jungle represents them, and they also like to think of themselves as the king of the zodiacs. Leos can sometimes share good times with Aries as well, but these two fire signs together are bad news for the most part. A Leo has a pretty sizable ego that clashes with an Aries’ desire to be first in everything, so expect a lot of yelling and storming out when these two get right into it.

3. Taurus

The age-old adage “opposites attract” doesn’t ring as true for an Aries and Taurus friendship as you might think. Aries is the youngest of all the zodiacs.

This is definitely reflected in their recklessness and impatience, which, to be fair, can be seen as spontaneity if you’re feeling generous. Meanwhile, calm and patient Taurus is at the other end of the spectrum. At the end of the day, no matter how much these two try to balance each other out, Taurus can’t deal with Aries’ impulsivity, while Aries quickly gets bored with Taurus.


Not everyone can keep up with Aries’ intense adventure-seeking nature, but those who do have the time of their lives. Geminis, Libra, and fellow Aries’ are more than happy to have an Aries in their lives because they add even more fun and excitement than they already get for themselves. Meanwhile, Cancers, Leos, and Taurus would much instead steer clear; they don’t have enough time to deal with a child.
