Aries is a Fire sign
The other Fire signs are Leo and Sagittarius. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Aries.
Traditionally Aries is compatible with Leo and Sagittarius, other Aries, Gemini, and Aquarius. Gemini and Aquarius bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Aries.
Summing Up Aries

As you can see, Aries / Libra relationships can be kind of mixed blessing.
Physically, Aries rules the head. The ruling planet of Aries is Mars. Aries is associated with the color red. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Aries is the diamond. Were you Born with The Sun in Aries?
