Aries: Fire and Fire. Wow. Cool. No, hot. That’s what this is, a hot relationship. I’ve always approved of a Sagittarius and Aries relationship. I’ve seen them be nothing but good. Well, mostly good. There’s a degree of understanding that you need to impart to this fine specimen of humanity called an Aries, though. He’s a Cardinal sign, a Cardinal Fire sign, as we previously noted. What we wind up with, when you put these two together, is a relationship with a hot, passionate side, fueled by a lot of go power.
The problems start when the go power takes a nap. The intense passion needs a rest occasionally, and while passion is asleep, if no one tends to the fire, the flames will go out. That’s the problem. Don’t let the fire go out. It can rest and dwindle, but remember to make sure the coals stay warm.
Tending this relationship is lot like looking after a good barbecue pit. It takes time, patience, and a degree of responsibility. The problem here is that neither sign really has an innate sense of what it takes to keep this going. It’s good a for a short turn, like that barbecue pit, great for doing hot dogs and burgers on a summer afternoon, but the long, slow smoked brisket of a relationship might take some extra attention. There needs to be something that will keep the flames going, something that keeps the smoke pouring out of the top of the pit, a little fan for the flames.
One of the best pit tenders I know keeps a bottle of hot sauce, a bottle of barbecue sauce, and little spray bottle of water at hand. These ingredients, on one level or another, might be the best items to keep this relationship going. You need to add an occasionally piece of Mesquite for flavor, maybe paint the ribs with hot sauce from time to time, perhaps layer a little barbecue sauce, and then, there are times when the mist from the water bottle is necessary to tone down the flames.
The end result is long, slow–cooked to perfection, type of meal where the meat falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. There will certainly be enough zest in this relationship to keep it spicy for a long time, it’s the judicious use of that water bottle that’s important.
