What Attracts Aries Men?
MOON or VENUS in ARIES
The type of woman who attracts you demonstrates a sense of independence and is bold, adventurous, or spontaneous. Think "Xena, Warrior Princess".
You'll respect the freedom of a woman like this; and might even encourage her to be more independent than she really wants to be. You admire strength and courage.
The "fiery" type can arouse you. "Competitive" women interest you.
To some degree, what you see here also applies if you have the Sun in this Sign. But for a man it is his Moon and Venus Signs which best indicate the types of woman he is most attracted to, or may choose for a mate, especially the Moon.
You enjoy a challenge, and may find it enjoyable to be "chased" or seduced by an assertive woman - while offering sufficient resistance to make it interesting.
Strong, competitive, or athletic women may appeal to you; and some form of "competition" such as games or sports might be a turn-on for you. You want to win, but you can respect a woman who gives you a good match.
You may have a particular attraction to "women in uniform". Of all the Moon and Venus Signs, you are the most likely to date a policewoman, military type, or security guard.
The Sun Sign is what the average person answers when you ask "What's your sign?" - but the Moon Sign and Venus Sign are not known by the average person, and are quite complicated to determine. You will probably need to get a birth chart produced by an astrologer or computer program to find out the Moon Sign.
If Moon and Venus are in the same Sign, his attraction to that type is extra strong!
If the man's birth date is the same as a "cusp date" given for the Moon Sign in any table you find, note that the Moon moves almost half a Sign (12-14 degrees) in 24 hours, so you need to know the hour of birth to be sure which Sign it was in. You may find the Moon Sign for the date one day before or after is more appropriate, because the Moon changes Sign every 2-3 days.
We can use those "cusp dates" for the Sun because our calendar was designed to conform to the apparent motion of the Sun. But the position of Venus does not conveniently match our calendar; so you'll have to look up its position on the exact month/day/year of birth from the listings in an astrological or naval "Ephemeris", or obtain a computer-calculated "natal horoscope chart" based on the birth data.
Before you look up your own Venus Sign, try an experiment by reading all twelve paragraphs and then choosing the one (other than the one for your Moon Sign, if you already know it) which best describes the second "type" of woman who attracts you. Is it the same "type" your Venus Sign predicts? Has your dating history included a significant number of partners who have that Venus Sign?
NOTES TO WOMEN
(1) If a WOMAN reads these same descriptions which match her own Venus Sign, she may find some strong similarities between the traits men with that Venus Sign look for in a lover, and the ways she tends to express her own femininity. It is natural for a woman to quite unconsciously slip into a mode of expression matching her own Venus Sign "type" when she is in the presence of men she would like to attract or flirt with.
(2) If a WOMAN reads these same descriptions which match her own Moon Sign, she may find some strong similarities between these traits men of the same Moon Sign look for in a wife (or mother of their children), and the kind of man who makes her feel safe and secure and protected.
There is a good chance her own choice of mate will have similar qualities (or he may have his Sun in that Sign).
These "types" also come into play when a man is attracted in a platonic way to another man when he admires his "style" - how he expresses himself in his actions and appearance. (For a gay male, these "types" also apply to the type of man who attracts him.) Both men and women will likely find many of their most "comfortable" friends have the Sun in the same Sign as their own Moon. The Moon is about how you feel comfortable, safe, and secure in any close relationship; while Venus is more about how you give and receive affection; how you act to attract partners (as friends or lovers) or get attracted to them; and especially for men, it symbolizes the kind of person you view as your ideal lover.
