Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and marks the official start of Spring. Just like the newborn lambs we see frolicking around at this time of year, Aries is brilliant at creation, sowing the seeds of new ideas. Your sign is a fire sign, so you are an initiator and your watchword is action. Not for you standing still getting itchy feet, you have to be doing something! Your symbol is the powerful Ram, courageously forging ahead into the unknown, strong and sturdy, but you can also be a little lamb, full of enthusiasm and excitement for life, entering uncharted territory with a refreshing innocence! Your ruling planet is feisty Mars, your colour is red and your precious stone the diamond. Men who have Sun in Aries are typically masculine, competitive and virile like Mars himself. Women with strong Arian qualities, while 100% female, also tend to have some of the more competitive, masculine elements of this sign. You won’t find a typical Arian lady wearing a frilly dress, and she will also expect to compete on every level with her male counterparts.
If your Sun sign is Aries, you will be the one out in front leading the expedition, inspiring others with your optimism and energy. You have amazing reserves of physical courage and stamina, and are quite fearless, stepping bravely up to the breach while everyone else is quaking in their boots! You are a natural leader, and your confidence that things will work gives you a great quality of bouncebackability. You can take life’s knocks and come back smiling, still absolutely convinced that you are on the right path! You simply keep your chin up and keep moving, butting through obstacles like the determined Ram, ever embracing of new and exciting opportunities. Part of what drives you is an innate need to be first and to prove yourself as the best.
Your forthright approach extends to your relationships, you just come right out and say what you think. You can be blunt, even rude at times, you don’t really have time for niceties, and although people certainly know where they stand with you, cultivating a little more sensitivity and tact might be nice! You are also honest and open about your motives, you put your cards on the table and want to see everyone else’s too. The trouble is, because there isn‘t a cunning bone in your body, you can’t possibly imagine how others could behave that way either, so at times you can be a little naïve. Your sheer courage in your convictions can also lead to stubbornness and arrogance. When things are falling apart, rather than retreat and lick your wounds you simply forge ahead determinedly. So it would be fair to say that this courage borders on a little foolish at times.
With all that fire in your belly you’re not a big thinker either, and you can be impulsive, reckless even, not thinking of the consequences before you jump. Part of this is a complete intolerance of tardiness, you must have quick and now. Slow drivers, people in queues taking all day about paying, all these things make your blood boil! This impatience makes you short tempered and hot headed at times, and you like a good old argument too, you become especially defensive when criticised. How can they possibly think you could be wrong, can’t they see this is absolutely 100% the way to go?! Self-centred too, perhaps? A little bit! You do tend to get quite absorbed with your own life, after all, the first sign of the Zodiac is Number One!
