Mar 21 - Apr 19
The very first sign in the zodiac calendar, Aries is fiery and energetic. They also have a need to be first in every other aspect of their lives, from school competitions to their career. It isn’t a surprise that their ruling planet is the red planet Mars, who coincidentally is also the Roman god of war, and that the element of Aries is fire. Below we will explain more about the personality and traits of an Aries, their compatibility with other star signs, and how they handle relationships with loved ones.

They usually act before they think, but don’t think that this means they aren’t organised! They’re usually one of the first to finish projects, and can take on many different things at once. Once they have set a goal, they will do everything it takes to achieve that goal. Also, they are very independent, and won’t do something just because everyone else is doing it. They walk to the beat of their own drum. But they are also impulsive, and usually will make decisions without much thought. Do not get on the wrong side of an Aries, they can be impatient, volatile and aggressive when challenged. They will fight for what they believe, and also know their own self-worth. Bravery and bravado are big traits of being an Aries, and they are not afraid of dangerous situations or difficult problems.
Aries and Love
Aries-born individuals will usually take the lead when it comes to initiating a relationship. They are quick to share their feelings, and usually will do so without a second thought, and can be very passionate in a relationship. Sometimes their love can become overbearing, and they will shower the one they love with affection, gifts and acts of service. They may even do this without thinking about how the other person in the relationship feels before doing so. As well as in love, they are also passionate about carnal pleasures. Addiction in this area can become prevalent in Aries-born individuals, and their libido can sometimes be much larger than their partner’s.
Aries and Friends/Family
Aries are the social butterflies of the zodiac, and will have many spontaneous and meaningful encounters throughout their life. They most value friendships with individuals who have many of the same values and personality traits as they do, such as bravery and honesty. They easily converse with other people, even strangers they have just met, and can be very open and honest.
Concerning family relationships, they tend to fly the nest early, and can be hard to control as children, always needing to be stimulated and to be more independent. If there are restrictions early on and throughout their childhood, Aries will begin to resent and hold anger towards the people who imposed those restrictions, causing problems with relationships in later life.
Aries and Career
Aries-born individuals tend to flourish in their professional life, and they love to show off their ambition and creativity in this area of life. They are natural-born leaders, and they are usually one step ahead of everyone else. They are excellent problem solvers, and tend to face challenges with relish rather than fear. Whereas competition may scare other star signs, Aries finds it encouraging, and uses it to show off their talent. Career sectors in which they do best include: management, police, entrepreneurship, firefighting, and anywhere they can be a leader or show off their problem solving skills. They do best in careers which are not stuck behind a desk or stuck to a set routine; they need constant stimulation and new challenges.
Aries-born individuals are very complex, and there is still much to understand about them. Hopefully the above has given you a good understanding with this star sign, especially if you are an Aries yourself, or if you know one personally.
