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

Freedom is the word on your mind and lips. Yet, you know that whatever is happening in your life, it will take time. So, you are ready and willing to get to work. Fortunately, your ambitions are strong and your resolve to support them as well. Watch for tendencies to allow the ‘could have, would, have, should have’ mantra to defeat you. Affirm: there is only now and next.
You are on the march. Your determination may, however, be challenged by rising and falling energy levels. Other external restrictions and delays may also be an issue. This is your cue to slow down, to be more deliberate and prudent, to deepen your concentration levels and pay closer attention to the details and the likely long-term implications of your choices.
A pioneering mood prevails. Something has been awakened within you. As though ignited with this new realization, you are determined to forge ahead. Circumstances are pushing you to learn and unlearn. Existing attitudes, perceptions, and behavior patterns are under review. You are done with wishing and dreaming. The time has come to get going.
A marked sense of individuality and independence is becoming more apparent with each new day. You have taken a major turn a little while back and now you are on a new road. Your energy levels are running pretty high, yet at least one of your fuel cells is empty and you can feel it. There is no turning back to repair or refuel so persevere faithfully.
