Dates – When are Aries People Born?

Aries is the star sign of anyone born between March 21 and April 19. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is often referred to as ‘The Child Of The Zodiac” so it’s no coincidence that The Phrase “I am” or “Me First” is often used in connection with this fire sign. Like their symbol The Ram, they take a head-on approach to life and can be bold and impulsive.

Temperament – What are the Characteristic Aries Personality Traits?

Aries people are ruled by the element Fire and the planet Mars making them an exciting and fiery combination! The symbol for Aries is The Ram and those born under this sun sign are always going to be the leaders of the pack. Just like The Emperor in Tarot, Aries is a born leader, assertive, dynamic, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and altogether irresistible!

Aries’ leadership qualities makes them capable of achieving amazing things and if you need to get something done, to get a project off to a flying start or indeed to get the party rolling – make sure to invite your Aries friend. Unlike most of us, those born under this star sign have no fear of the unknown. In fact, quite the reverse – they welcome the challenge and excitement of exploring new places so don’t be surprised to find them leading expeditions into new territories. Even when things don’t work out as planned, this fire sign never quits – their ruling planet, Mars, The God of War brings out their fighting spirit and passion for life which helps them overcome any difficulties. When the going gets tough, we all hope to have an Aries in our corner!

A passion for life drives the Ram and being a Cardinal Fire Sign, Aries is someone who ‘starts’ things and they must always be first. It’s no surprise that the astrological sign of Roger Bannister, the man who was first in the world to run a mile in under four minutes, was Aries. Aries determination and desire to win can sometimes cause friction with family and friends but their wonderful sense of humor and sense of the ridiculous will always save the day!

Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Aries?

If you are looking for passion, excitement and sheer fun then look no further than a partner born under the star sign Aries! But be prepared, because this lively and extrovert character is always looking for adventure and nothing turns them on like the thrill of the chase. Being ruled by the planet Mars – the God of War – conquest is essential to this astrological sign. The Aries woman needs a man who is not intimidated by her strong qualities and passionate nature.

Don’t settle too quickly, take time to ‘shop around’ and ensure the partner you choose is equally passionate, equally adventurous (both in and out of bed!). Your perfect partner must be prepared to fight his or her corner! The hottest partners for Aries are Leo and Sagittarius – all that fire will ensure your relationship sizzles! But if too much fire doesn’t appeal, Gemini and Aquarius are also excellent partners.

Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Aries People?

Being the first sign in the Zodiac and symbolized by the Ram, Aries people need to work in a leadership role and many tend to start their own business or become managers or company directors. It is essential that the job has an element of risk, so anything that involves a challenge or demands a deadline is a good option.

Aries organizational skills and competitive nature makes them excellent in a number of commercial areas, particularly research, sales and marketing. Being a Fire sign, Aries is very much focused on action and that, together with their creativity, drive and ambition has produced many famous athletes, musicians and artists.

Wellness – What Health Issues do Aries People Have?

The part of the body ruled by the sun sign Aries, is the head. Perhaps this is why some people call them ‘head cases’ as they rush around from one place to another, never standing still. Many Aries people suffer from headaches, migraine and, like the head-butting Ram, many suffer from various types of head injuries. The need to get as much out of life as possible and an inclination to rush into things, means Aries people are often careless about safety and this can make them accident-prone. Exercise is vital to Aries to help burn off that excess energy, and competitive sport will satisfy their need for challenge.
