The Aries symbol is the noble Ram. The distinctive horns are especially highlighted. This sign rules the head.
The Ram’s nature is assertive. But like the gentle sheep, it can be trusting too. Aries, the Ram, lives life “head first.”
Many born under this sign have scars on their heads or forehead. The Ram may also have dramatic eyebrows. If you see an Aries child without a scar, check back in a few years. Since they always go “head first”, that’s often a sensitive area.
Influence Planet: Mars
Aries’ ruling planet is Mars. The ancients identified Mars with the Greek god of war known as Ares. This is where the name Aries comes from.
Aries has the heart of a warrior. It burns like the red planet that reflects his or her sign. Mars can influence all aggressive behavior, from waging war to engaging in a sweeping long-term love affair.
Creativity is fed by the Mars fire. Aries has an interesting artsy side.
The energy of Mars can be immature and impulsive, at times. It can also be passionate, true and loyal.
Astrological House: 1st House
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The first house is all about self-awareness, attitude and appearances. This house rules the world of identity, personality, initiative and intellect.
The emphasis and focus in this house is an expression of Arian inner motivation. Life purpose and the individual aura are linked through the 1st house.
It rules physical appearance, the ego, self-image and expression. In every sense, the 1st house reflects the Aries temperament and initial approach to life.
Aries is a fire sign in the truest sense of the word. The fire is part of their energy and life force. It is important that the Aries learns not to burn themselves out.
Aries can be very impulsive, but they rarely have trouble making a decision. And once they decide what they want, they will move heaven and earth to get it.
An Aries that learns the lessons of self-control, patience and pace will burn brightly in life and be successful in whatever they set out to accomplish.
As its birthstone, any color diamond will always magnify the Aries gifts. But it is the high-grade, clear-cut white diamond that reflects them most. The strength and power of a diamond define the Aries at their best.
Even though they may have flaws and imperfections, diamonds are unbreakable. They cannot be shattered or destroyed. It takes hundreds of years for them to form. Then they can last forever.
Diamonds are valuable, and they have clear power. This is a metaphor for the Aries personality. All birthstones bring out the best in their signs. The diamond stands for the Aries clarity, brilliance, and inspiration.
Money and Careers
Aries people are often entrepreneurs, business owners, managers, conductors, artists, explorers or team leaders. Don’t be surprised to find them working as fire chiefs or police officers. Remember they have an innate need to be the boss. As long as they can curb the workaholic nature, they make a great one.
An Aries usually shines brightly where career is involved. Since they are born leaders with loads of ambition, they want to be in charge. If they aren’t the boss, they will be soon. An Aries knows how to be persistent, loyal and patient. They will work their way up given half a chance.
Aries is creative, intuitive and driven. They see the path ahead and know where to take the team. They are stars in almost any workplace. They are driven by the need to be the best in the company, or even in the industry. And they are usually up for the challenge.
The Aries personality is very much “in the moment.” They can make a lot of money in their careers. They can also spend a lot of it quickly. Aries has the inclination to gamble.
Although they don’t usually dig themselves into debt, they don’t always save for rainy days. Aries usually doesn’t get too short on money. But it’s rare for them to accumulate great fortunes. They enjoy living in the now and spending what they make.
Characteristics and Character
The fire element combined with the 1st house and the Mars energy make them natural leaders. Coupled with their “fixed” sign quality, the first sign of the zodiac is always driven to be first.
They are born adventurers, leaders, and explorers. Aries have a tendency to “think they know better”. They rarely back down when they think they are right!
There’s a dual symbolic nature with Aries. The animal symbol of the Ram also encompasses the sheep. On the one hand, the yin (sheep) are followers. They often stick with their herd. But don’t underestimate the Aries need to lead.
The yang energy (rams) are always strong-willed leaders. They will not box themselves in. Not only do they refuse to get into the box; they will break down the box with those massive Aries horns.
Aries has a competitive nature. They want to win. As long as they don’t push too far, they will end up on top. Aries is usually one step ahead and planning the next one.
Remember that Aries has the pioneer spirit. They want to lead the team, the pack or the herd. And they will be taking you someplace that feels safe. Aries’ long range goal is to get to the right place and enjoy themselves.
Aries may be non-conformists, but they need to belong. They operate best in a family environment. They are not loners in any sense of the word. There is nothing sadder than a lonely Aries.
Aries are usually vital, intelligent and energetic people. Most have a sense of adventure and are known as risk-takers and innovators. They can be loyal and protective, like any good warrior king or queen.
Aries people often display courage in the face of danger. They have a heroic side to their nature. They have even been known to sacrifice their lives to save other people.
The first thing you notice is that charming Aries personality. They are charismatic and have well-developed social instincts. The great sense of humor is a plus. But most of all (unless you run into the extreme case of a dangerous, risk-taker Aries), they make you feel welcome and safe.
The good news is they are great to have around in any social situation. The bad news is Aries can develop a tendency to party a little too much.
Aries are future-oriented. They have a plan and are looking at the “big picture” and the main idea. Sometimes the details are best left to others. Aries can get bogged down with too many details. A confused, distracted Aries person is almost as sad as a lonely one.
This may be why Aries needs to lead. If they are the first, they are clearing the path. Aries can’t stand to be wandering without a purpose and direction. Their need is to be one step ahead of the rest of us. They hate to get involved with complications. And they can’t stand it to be too predictable.
Aries can be late in life to accomplishment. But they always end up contributing to creating a better world for themselves and everyone else.
When it comes to Aries, don’t be too quick to judge. They are oceans deeper and miles ahead of what it seems. The Aries fire is rarely put out by the obstacles and roadblocks of life. They were born to be first, and they are well equipped for the journey.
Meet the Aries Woman
The Aries woman likes attention. She is, after all, the first lady of the zodiac.
Although Aries may be super feminine, they are a sign with a “male” nature. That means they retain their charm aggressively. Aries women can be just as aggressive as their male counterparts.
They are also very romantic. Remember that Mars, the action planet, influences Aries. And don’t forget that this is a fire sign. Aries women may have many partners in their lifetime. They go “head-first” into romance, just like they do in life.
The Aries woman is independent, honest, and unpredictable. She can also be impulsive, bossy and passionate.
Keep in mind that however strong that she may seem, she has her weaknesses. The important thing is that if you are in a romance with an Aries woman, you are fortunate indeed.
That Aries girl can show you your lost dreams. She’s going somewhere, after all. Perhaps you’ll want to let her lead you there.
Meet the Aries Man
Aries males are witty and charming. They love to be noticed, and they enjoy attracting romance. They can be a little too impulsive.
An Aries guy is the archetype of machismo. Most Aries of the male variety exude raw masculinity. They are only happy when they are in charge.
Every Aries likes attention. That’s the number one “me first” mentality. They are happiest if they believe that it’s their idea. So let them think that!
The Aries man can be highly competitive. He enjoys a good challenge. It’s even better if he wins. Aries men like to pursue their romantic partners. If they feel they are being chased, it doesn’t work.
If you are in love with an Aries man, you know that they can be hard to tame. But once they are committed, everything falls into place. That warrior heart can be comforting and protective for as long as it beats. The Aries man that curbs his impulsive nature makes a loyal and loving partner.
