Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and is the first member of the Fire Element Triplicity, followed by Leo and Sagittarius. Aries is a Sign of Cardinal Quality or modality and is ruled by Mars.
The Zodiac glyph is the Ram, which is symbolic of daring, bold and pioneering leadership. The glyph can alternately be seen as symbolizing a fountain of lava spewing upward from a volcano, symbolizing raw earth energy in a liquid fire state.
Energetic and enthusiastic about new directions, people born with an Aries Sun Sign are at their best when taking an active lead in exploring new territory, whether literally or figuratively, and championing meaningful causes. Fiercely independent, Aries persons are usually unfettered by what others think of them. Often assertive with chiselled good looks, high fashion is generally less important than an appearance that matches the style of their mood. On the other hand, Aries are known to be trend-setters and can certainly be avante garde.
Aries has energy that acts spontaneously without asking, and can be dominant and forceful to the extent of being considered self-centered and even abrasive. Follow-through and completion of projects are other common issues. Positively, people with a strong emphasis of Aries in their Astrological signature are very original, alert and present and make excellent leaders and guides. Aries can also make exciting and fun-loving companions, ready and willing to embark upon an adventure without delay.
The basic challenges to overcome include self-centeredness and reckless abandon. Aries is about initiative, action, pioneering leadership, authenticity and bold determination.
Researchers, guides, occultists, geologists, geographers, scientists and entrepreneurs are common occupations.
Some famous personalities that aptly depict Aries include:
- David Suzuki – scientist & environmentalist
- Jackie Chan – martial artist & actor
- Sandra Day O’Connor – first female justice on U.S. Supreme Court
