Fast Summary:

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and is symbolised by the Ram, which represents this types typically headlong, direct and courageous manner. Aries symbol or glyph represents the self-projecting head of the Ram, so well symbolizing the forward and enterprising nature of this sign, which always seeks adventure and challenge. The Sun is in Aries from the Vernal Equinox at the end of March to around 20 April each year. This is the Spring, a time of vigorous and assertive renewal. Aries can be thought of as the ignition mechanism of the zodiac and of the entire years cycle.

Aries is classified as being of the positive polarity (expressive and spontaneous), of the fire element (ardent, keen, energetic and assertive), and of the cardinal quality (outgoing and enterprising). Aries shows an objective attitude, expressing urgency and assertiveness, associated with an urge to project energetically, actively, objectively, combatively and sexually into life. The characteristic Aries type is impulsive, self-assertive, restless, always wanting quick results and giving the impression of urgency. Aries develops a high degree of initiative, enterprise, and is a pioneering and adventurous spirit. Aries seems naturally courageous and fearless, the attitude being me first rather than being naturally individualistic. Aries is frank, direct, a go-getter and a freedom-lover.

Aries may sometimes find it difficult to control its highly impulsive nature. If the courageous and self-assertive traits are over-emphasized, or expressed without integration to the whole person, then the Aries expression may become more reckless, impatient, brusque or rude; then there can be a danger of Aries becoming selfish, argumentative, quick-tempered and aggressive, without heeding the feelings of others. Aries must beware that a leadership quality doesnt turn into bullying, and that bravery isnt foolhardiness. Aries has to keep a watch over its forward-projecting expression, lest it becomes over-impulsive, thoughtless, over-optimistic and too quick to be properly thorough. Aries can conceive the start and finish of an enterprise, but often overlooks the details or possible snags that lie between.

Physically, Aries rules the head as a whole (symbolic of the desire to be at the head of things first). Aries can have a tendency for headaches, neuralgia, sunstroke, inflammations and head injuries, and the impulsive nature can bring about a risk of accidents.

Aries is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Mars. Aries has a kinship with fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius.

Aries Zodiac Symbol

 

This symbol is a potent reminder of the bold and courageous nature of this zodiac sign.

The first thing that leaps out at you is the straight lines that go upward and then curve outward representing the skull and horns of the mighty ram. This symbolizes the forceful nature of these dynamic people.

It shows the headstrong approach of Aries individuals and their penchant for diving in head first whenever their impatience and/or enthusiasm overcomes them. They represent the classic leap before you look approach.

It also rules the head of the human body symbolizing that these people tend to be prone to injuries to the face or head in some way. When they are sick, they usually tend to get high fevers also.

Since the horns of the ram are so clearly depicted in the Aries zodiac symbol, they symbolize the competitive nature of Arian people. Instead of patiently deliberating over their options, many Arians tend to drive straight ahead with much force and vigor. Much like the ram, they tend to fearlessly bash through obstacles in a very direct manner.

This  zodiac symbol clearly illustrates the courageous optimism of Aries individuals. In fact, the highest truth of Aries is to fearlessly confront their challenges and fears in life and courageously battle their way to the top of the mountain much like the actual ram battles its way up the mountain for survival.

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.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Astrobabe

The zodiacal year begins at the Spring Equinox, and Aries is the first sign of the zodiacal calendar. As such, it is representative of new beginnings. The sign of Aries is the ram, giving Aries the qualities of being adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic, and full of energy. An Aries is truly a free being, who welcomes challenges and will not be diverted from reaching his or her goals except by their own impatience – one of the downfalls of the ram.

An Arian is a responsible person, content to do things by themselves rather than relying on others for assistance, although the enormous tasks they can take on will sometimes force them to do so. An Aries is considered to be a courageous leader who always bears a great deal of concern for those they govern. As such, an Aries will not be a great follower because they are too easily swept by the “take charge” role in their blood. If an Aries disagrees with an argument, he/she may simply forgo the conversation rather than express ideas towards a subject with which they cannot relate.

An Aries may be self centered, or at least may focus on their selves to achieve personal advancement and physical satisfaction. They have an immense energy, making them both aggressive and relentless in their pursuits. An Arian type will be headstrong and easily offended, and may even display the attributes of being quick-tempered and argumentative, although this is not always the case.

As the first sign in the zodiac, the Arian will have a burning desire to begin new tasks, and lead the way in their development. They enjoy freedom to take the project in the best direction they see fit, and will usually have a solid method of convincing others to follow this course of action.

People born of the Arian nature will also be good judges of character. They can quickly ascertain the causes of a person’s actions, and force the person to look within to discover the nature of their problems. Unfortunately, on the negative side of this, an Arian may also make it difficult for others to discover the true nature of their inner selves.

Arians often have a high sex drive, and are passionate but selfless lovers. In relationships, an Aries will be quite direct and candid, and may be easily irritated by a lack of comprehension in his or her companion. As well, although an Aries may be sensitive, a relationship for Aries may find the ram running over the sensitivities of his or her partner. If an Arian manages to settle down, they will find themselves highly devoted to their children – quite self-sacrificial in fact. They are said to be the most defensive and loving parents in the Zodiac.

Arians are usually intelligent and objective people, but may also be extremist in the areas of religion and politics. An Aries is generally a quick-witted person, but sometimes unable to draw the line or comprehend why their pattern of thought cannot be followed by others. They enjoy championing causes in the efforts of aiding others, as hopeless and futile as these efforts may prove to be. This is another trait which does not bring good fortune to Aries – as he/she will sometimes act impulsively and be over-optimistic in their plans.

An Aries always enjoys a challenge. This challenge may just be frustration, or may prove to be a quite noble cause. However, the impulsiveness of an Aries sometimes means that they will not take the time to plan their actions, which could lead to a ram lost in the woods, without a cross to bear.

An Aries usually makes a good athlete, doctor, explorer (of new ideas as well as uncharted territory), soldier, sailor, pilot, or leaders. Much as they are the Ram, there is still the little lamb inside of any Arian, which means that a sensitive side still does exist. One thing an Aries must develop is a talent akin to knowing the difference between what you can change, and what you cannot. This requires patience, the acquiring of which is definitely may prove to be the greatest accomplishment an Aries may achieve, and certainly the most difficult.

Question: did you come here to find out about an Aries in your life? The deep, dark mystery of what makes them tick? Sorry to disappoint, but you might as well just ask them: they’ll tell you the truth, though you might not like the way it comes out. Candid, spontaneous, firey, don’t give it to an Aries if you can’t take it back. Puppy-like in their enthusiasm and playfulness, they’ll be baffled if their verbal jabs or erratic actions wound you: can’t you see they’re just playing?

Aries is always off to the next big thing. They are adventurers, first and foremost. New things, people, experiences: keep them on their toes and you’ll keep them in your life. They have no patience for day-to-day boring people, just as they have no patience for day-to-day boring reality.

Biggest Insult: I find you dull and predictable.

Quickest Way to Get Aries into Bed: Dare them to fuck you.

Most likely to: Bolt. Mock you. Make you laugh until you throw up. Disappear and show up three days later as though nothing happened.

Should have been born: Five minutes from now, or whenever the “next big thing” hits.

To Make Aries Forgive You: Make them laugh. Give them five minutes.
