The horoscope Aries the Ram is the first sign of the zodiac as well as the first of the Fire Signs. This sign symbolizes springtime, a rebirth of things.

According to Greek Mythology, when giants were chasing Zeus he turned himself into the Ram. The King of Thessaly had two children named Phrixus and Helle who were beaten by their stepmother. The god Hermes was so enraged over this he sent a ram to get the two children to take them to safety. While above the narrow strip of water between Europe and Asia, Helle lost her grip and fell. It was called Hellespont in her honor. Her brother Phrixus reached the shores of the Black Sea safely. He then sacrificed the ram and gave its fleece to a sleepless dragon. It was later that Jason and his Argonauts found the fleece and returned it to Thessaly.

Aries Traits and Aries Personality
Being a Cardinal Sign they don’t wait for others to start things, they do with great force and energy. Arians do however get bored easily, and when that happens they won’t stay around and finish what they’ve started. They are on to other projects that have captured their attention. Aries are born leaders and with their natural charm and charisma they inspire others with their honesty and outgoing and cheerful manner.
Aries are not known for having patience and can be abrupt with a show of arrogance. They forget that others have their own opinions that can differ from theirs and when this happens they can become stubborn and intolerant. In love they are passionate and expect their mate to be the same way so their best bet would be to be with another fire sign. Like Ares, the god of war, they are forceful and determined, and can be impulsive, and it’s this impulsiveness if they’re not careful, can backfire. While Geminis and Virgos will analyze and think a problem through before acting on it, Aries wants to do something about it now. They are quick decision makers and are not afraid of confrontations. In fact they expect them. They have a lot of energy and are very independent.
Aries will insist upon being the leader in their home. Arians are never depressed or down for long. They bounce back quickly with a new attitude and bright outlook. Deception and lies are foreign to the Ram and they hate being ignored. They may have terrible tempers but they don’t hold grudges. Once they’ve had their say they don’t remain angry. While Arians can be tactless at times, they also can be very warm and generous.
They love new challenges but they can’t be bothered with minor details. That is best left up to someone else. They will fight for any injustice and are fearless about voicing their opinions no matter who it is that has them so upset.
When it comes to love Aries are attracted to people that are different from them, they can be tactless and diplomatic skills are not usually part of their makeup, so they look for these qualities in a mate. Their unwavering faith in themselves can be fairly exasperating and they have a hard time seeing anyone else’s viewpoint or opinions. Aries are however very honest with loads of integrity and they are people you can lean on and they are there for others. That alone can be a great comfort to others.
