Aries Dates:(born March 21 – April 19)
This is one of the easiest signs to recognize, being what you see is what you get, with very obvious characteristics that include impulsiveness and eagerness. They tend to be headstrong and tactless – act first and think later, which can go against them as they endlessly pursue their chosen goals, thriving on a challenge. Whether however, they reach their goals is debatable! Energy and enthusiasm go hand in hand with this placement but they can be selfish and impatient. They usually have strong leadership qualities and are quite independent-minded, often so in relationships, where they are generally passionate although this will largely depend on their Venus and Mars signs also. When crossed or facing an obstacle, all hell can break loose, either physically or verbally. They really are a fire sign and the word ‘me’ was written for them!

About Aries Personality and Traits
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the Ram, which represents this type 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 year’s 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, and 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 doesn’t turn into bullying and that bravery isn’t 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.

Constellation of Aries
Aries is the first of the 12 zodiacal signs. The constellation of the Ram dates back to Greek and Roman times. Aries also marks the beginning of the Vernal equinox (Spring). The Sun passes through this constellation from late April until mid-May. A long time ago the Vernal equinox was in the constellation of Aries, but because of the precession of the Earth, this point is currently in the constellation of Pisces.
In Greek mythology, the story begins with the King of Thessaly, who had 2 children, Phrixus and Helle. The 2 children were beaten so badly by their stepmother that it angered the God Hermes. Hermes then sent the golden ram to carry them to safety. Along the way, Helle fell off of the ram. Phrixus arrived safely in Colchis, along the shores of the Black Sea where he then, at Ram’s request, sacrificed the ram to bring fertility to his homeland. The Ram then placed himself amongst the stars. The ram’s fleece was later given to Jason and the Argonauts to return it back to Thessaly.

As A Relationship Partner
Aries, like the ram, responds to situations impulsively. In emotional relationships, you need to express sexuality more strongly than most, and in a positive fashion. Many have a romantic streak and a likely tendency to selfishness. Arian behavior may be quite childish at times. The partner of an Aries person should make sure that their needs are accepted as being of equal importance.
As A Parent
The tendency to ‘push’ a child is the Aries parent’s worst fault and is not helped by a lack of patience. These parents should allow the child to develop at their own rate. Mostly, the out-going qualities of Arians make for a good parent, especially for the more extroverted child. The Aries child is energetic and will be difficult to control at times. Firm discipline is sometimes required. It is important for the parent to help the child find a vocation of some kind early in life. In career terms, they need more excitement than most. They would rather lead than be lead.
