I interviewed Aimee Caldwell, an Aries, and asked her a few questions regarding her sign and signs traits. When asked if shes anything like her sign Caldwell replied “I think a little bit, I’m not like exactly like my sign, but there’s some things where I can definetly make connections.” I also asked her what sign she liked the least, “I don’t really know ,I really like Sagittarius and other Aries.” Which is a typical fire sign reply, most fire signs get along really well with other fire signs.
