March 21 - April 20
Aries is the first Sign of the Zodiac, and that's pretty
much how those born under this Sign see themselves: first.
Aries are the leaders of the pack, first in line to get
things going. Whether or not everything gets done is another
question altogether, for an Aries prefers to initiate rather
than to complete. Do you have a project needing a kick-start?
Call an Aries, by all means. The leadership displayed by
Aries is most impressive, so don't be surprised if they
can rally the troops against seemingly insurmountable odds
-- they have that kind of personal magnetism. An Aries
won't shy away from new ground, either. Those born under
this Sign are often called the pioneers of the Zodiac,
and it's their fearless trek into the unknown that often
wins the day. Aries is a bundle of energy and dynamism,
kind of like a Pied Piper, leading people along with its
charm and charisma. The dawning of a new day -- and all
of its possibilities -- is pure bliss to an Aries.
The symbol of Aries is the Ram, and that's both good and
bad news. Impulsive Aries might be tempted to ram their
ideas down everyone's throats without even bothering to
ask if they want to know. It's these times when you may
wish Aries's Sign's symbol were a more subdued creature,
more lamb than ram perhaps. You're not likely to convince
the Ram to soften up; these folks are blunt and to the
point. Along with those qualities comes the sheer force
of the Aries nature, a force that can actually accomplish
a great deal. Much of Aries's drive to compete and to win
comes from its Cardinal Quality. Cardinal Signs love to
get things going, and Aries exemplifies this even better
than Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.
Aries are ruled by the Planet Mars. Taking a peek at Roman
mythology, we find that Mars was the God of War. Our man
Mars was unafraid to do battle, and much the same can be
said for Aries. These folks are bold, aggressive and courageous.
They can summon up the inner strength required to take
on most anyone, and they'll probably win. Aries do not
lack energy or vitality, and they can stay in the game
longer than most anyone else. Now that's a winning edge.
Rams are also, for the most part, independent and well
aware of their own interests in a given situation. This
sometimes myopic view may not be for everyone, but it does
help Aries get things going. Further, their competitive
natures ensure that they will play the game with zeal and
vigor. At times, their approach may be construed as arrogant
and domineering, but it takes a lot of focus to be a leader
(or so an Aries would say). Sadly, the Aries won't usually
be around for the final victory (defeat? never). These
folks will more than likely have bolted to the next project
before the first one is done.
The Element associated with Aries is Fire. Think action,
enthusiasm and a burning desire to play the game. Aries
love physicality, so they won't sit on the sidelines for
long, if at all. They'll jump into the fray full force
and will contribute much in the process. Talk about eager
beavers! Sure, some of their decisions may later prove
to have been hasty, but you'll never find an Aries who
regretted taking a shot.
Making things happen is what it's all about to these folks.
Aries are also unafraid of stepping onto new terrain. The
challenge inherent in taking on the unknown is heaven on
Earth for Rams. Sure, they may appear arrogant when they
take on the world, but they'll be quick to tell you it's
the only way to go. While a common Aries refrain might
well be 'me first,' there's no point in arguing with them
since, in their minds, they are first. Is this unbridled
ego? Maybe, but that might be what it takes to blaze a
new trail. Oh, and on the subject of arguing, it's the
Ram who will have the last word, so save your breath.
Aries seem to play as hard as they work. These folks are
happiest in a spirited soccer match or engaging in the
martial arts. In the game of love, the Ram's ardor is unquestioned,
although Aries can also be playful and romantic with their
mate. With Aries ruling the head, face and brain, those
born under this Sign need to be on the lookout for headaches
and are well-served to take the occasional deep breath.
The Ram's color is bright red, a sure sign of the fire
that breathes within.
The great strength of the Aries-born is in their initiative,
courage and determination. These folks love to get things
going and are fearless along the way. Their dynamism and
competitive spirit add considerably any of their endeavors.
