Sun Sign Astrology: Aries

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, with the Sun visiting March 21st, and leaving April 19th.  Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac, alongside Leo and Sagittarius. As a result of its fiery influence, Aries are considered to be courageous, passionate and impulsive, always ready to embrace change or take a leap into the unknown. Aries is also ruled by the planet Mars, the Ancient God of conflict, war and aggression, and this can be manifested in an Aries through argumentativeness, aggression, and confrontation. Aries is symbolised by the Ram, which connotates assertiveness and recklessness, so it is no wonder that an Aries is always up for a challenge.

This sign is energetic and restless, always determined to get a job done in the quickest amount of time, to the best of their ability, and is equipped with the  excellent organisational skills to achieve this. However, when an obstacle gets in their way they are quick to become impatient, and take their anger out on those around them – it is said that an Arien loves an argument. Ariens like to be in charge, so unless they are the leader, have a difficult time working in a group – and when in a group, may quickly become an unpopular member due to their sharp tongue and need to take control of the situation. On the other hand, despite people sometimes feeling the need to tip-toe around them due to their biting personality, there are many that admire an Arien’s drive and passion to succeed, and the brutal but sometimes necessary honesty.

Ariens, of course have many positive traits, and in a social, less competitive setting, people are instantly drawn to their vibrant, optimistic personality, even if they are unable to get a word in edge ways whilst they talk. An Arien is also the perfect friend to go to with a problem – an Arien is generous when it comes to giving advice and finding a solution – as long as they receive credit for it. They are courageous and brave, unafraid to take a leap into the unknown, which opens up many opportunities for them that many people miss out on due to fear. Their recklessness, whilst sometimes putting them in danger, highlights the adventurous side of them, and as a result they are constantly looking for new, and exciting experiences. They are passionate, and this shines through in their work, and they often do very well in projects that reflect this.

So now lets take a look at some famous Ariens: Maya Angelou, Marlon Brando, Russell Crowe, Thomas Jefferson, Eddie Murphy and Colin Powell, just to name a few. I think you will agree that many of these celebrities are known for their passion, courage… and short tempered personality (cough, cough, Russell Crowe).
