Classic MTA - Love Is A Battlefield: The Aries Guide To Compatibility

(Re-runs are a vital part of the television tradition... not welcome, not well-loved, but apparently an important part of the process. In that spirit, here`s my compatibility series again. Don't worry, the new stuff is coming.)

As much as a cliche as it might be, I still find that when an Aries approaches me about their love life, the question may be "Is so-and-so my soul mate?" or "Should I continue to pursue whatshisface?"... but the real question is "how much of a fight am I going to have to put up to get things right?" But you want romance, and whether you're a man or a woman, you love the challenge.

I've decided to demonstrate Aries compatibility by showing you how easy or hard the planned Aries invasion of Love Island will be, based on the sign of the partner.

THE BEACH: The Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Flat, level terrain here with little resistance. Another Aries might seem like the logical place to start. Trouble probably will set in when your next planned combat action isn't on the same path as your partner's. Leo is comfortable, but they can be less goal-oriented than you. That can be frustrating. Sagittarius is a pleasant fit, but you may have this nagging feeling they aren't taking you seriously enough. And you're probably right.

THE GRASSLANDS: The Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. A little more work to empathize with, but still relatively easy to reach. Only the occasionally spear is thrown at you as you approach. Gemini can be a little more scattered and indecisive than you. Aquarius can be similarly passionate about things, yet strangely dispassionate about them too, and that can be frustrating. Libra is a little further inland and hilly, but worth the extra travel. You may find the natives here react to your every strategic move, making them surprisingly hard to catch off guard for such nice people.

MOUNT BULLMORE: Taurus. Lush fields protected by stubborn thick jungle and a steep climb. This one will take some time to achieve, but may well be worth it as a stabilizing influence. Watch out for the vines: they cling. Hard.

DREAMY VALLEY: Pisces. Gentle, restful, green and luscious. It's a shame you have to go through so much damned work just to find a place to rest. And the terrain here can be confusing and unclear. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? You decide.

FLINTY RIDGE: Virgo. On the face of it, you two have neither nothing in common nor any reason for conflict. This can actually be a great place for you to camp out. All you'll have to do is convince the natives it's okay. And do it in their language, not yours. Good luck with that.

SCORPION PASS: Remember that great scene in "The Fellowship Of The Ring" where Gandalf held off the giant Balrog in a spectacular battle, only for both of them to plunge to their deaths? Yes, one of them did come back for the next movie. You think that's you, or Scorpio? It's a coin toss. You like those odds?

THE DEFENSIVE MOUNTAINS: Cancer and Capricorn. You wouldn't leave your valuables in the driveway and lock up your old newspapers, would you? These two are emotionally defensive because they have a lot going on inside, and they are the most reactive to a sudden jab. The problem here is that "sudden jab" is your style, whether you like it or not.

So why even bother? I don't have to tell you. You're an Aries. It's all about the victory, baby... glorious, glorious victory.
