While we may celebrate the start of new year on January 1 by watching a glittering ball drop, a new astrological cycle actually begins somewhere in the middle of March. Every year, on or around March 19, the sun enters Aries, first sign of the zodiac, and the sign of the Ram.
Everything about this time of year is about speed, from the yearly ritual of spring cleaning to the unexpected arrival of new life in the form of flowers and grass. Aries is first sign of the zodiac, and as a fire sign, it is known for taking the lead. Mars, the planet of action, sex, strength, and courage, rules the energetic sign, which certainly helps.
A few of the many strong, forward-thinking, take-charge Rams who are wired to stand up to what they believe in and win are America Ferrera, Reese Witherspoon, Lady Gaga, Emma Watson, Gloria Steinem, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mariah Carey.
Here you will discover all there is to know about exciting and eccentric fire sign.
Qualities of an Arian
In the zodiac, this sign is a vivacious newcomer.
If your birthday falls between 19th of March and the 19th of April, you are most likely an Aries. (Since the sun shifts signs at various times each year, this cannot be definitively stated.) Although it’s common to identify with your sun sign, it’s important to remember that your natal chart—basically a snapshot of the sky at the moment of your birth—is more complex than just your sun sign. The effect on your sense of identity is larger than you might think.
People with the Sun in Aries are known for their high levels of energy and enthusiasm, as well as their willingness to try new things, their openness to new information, and their willingness to speak their minds. Aries is the “baby” sign of the zodiac, and the First House of Self is responsible for its “baby” qualities.
Because Mars is their ruler, Aries are competitive by nature and eager to fight for what they believe in, whether that be a better society, a new personal best in a half marathon, or the right to binge-watch a particular television series. They are the ones who try to start fights at every party by bringing up a contentious topic. Given that Aries enjoys a good argument so long as they come out on top, it’s clear that they find winning arguments entertaining.
Sagittarian Fire Symbol
Each sign’s quality encapsulates an essential aspect of the sign’s nature (cardinal, mutable, or fixed). One can find a cardinal, mutable, and fixed sign within each element (fire, earth, air, water). Those born in Aries, the first sign of the fire element, are ambitious visionaries. They have a natural knack for coming up with bold and innovative concepts, but they may struggle to see those plans through to fruition.
what makes an Aries great:
Because of their boundless vitality, impetuousness, and determination, Aries are exciting, entertaining, courageous, and fearless. They are the best friend who will never give up on you, the best teammate you have ever ask for, the politician you would give up everything for, and the best legal counsel you could ever hope to find.
Downsides to being an Aries:
Because of their hasty actions and constant need for conflict, those born under the sign of Aries are sometimes misunderstood as being insecure and lacking in maturity. They may try to trick you into a fight or claim to have eaten at a restaurant that hasn’t even opened yet just for fun. Thrilling? Perhaps. Aggravating? Likewise, that is correct.
Aries’ Sexual and Emotional Attitudes
Virgos have a distinct style when it comes to love.
If a potential partner asks you out less than five minutes into a conversation while you’re swiping along, match, there’s a good chance there’s some fiery, impulsive Aries energy at play. The impatience that characterizes the fire sign extends to all areas of life, including romantic partnerships, and makes it the first sign of the zodiac to rush into a relationship without considering the long-term consequences of a mismatch.
The ideal date for an Aries involves getting active and/or engaging in some healthy competition. You could go to a baseball game, do a mud run, or take a boxing class as a group.
The degree to which Aries is sexually in tune.
It’s no secret that Aries men and women are known for their speed, and that this is a key factor in their sexual success. People like this are notorious for cutting to the chase without bothering with the small talk. Because of their impulsivity, they might also engage in impromptu sex or makeout sessions. Since Mars controls physical energy, they will feel the need to demonstrate their strength by striking challenging poses or going to their physical limits.
The Sign of Aries and Compatibility
If you’re curious about how a friendship, romance, business, and other close personal connections with an Aries compare to those with your sign, read on! Some of their most common adversaries and reliable allies are as follows:
The ideal companion for a ram is:
It is well known that signs made up of the same element share the most characteristics in common with one another (e.g. two water signs, like Scorpio and Cancer or two earth signs, like Taurus and Virgo). However, when two fire signs are brought together, tensions tend to rise rapidly. Either you and your friend are able to bring out best in each other and then push each other to new heights of excitement, joy, and merriment in life, or you and your friend are prone to frequent, heated arguments. Fire and Air signs are said to be compatible because they share traits like spontaneity, independence, speed, and friendliness.
In terms of adaptability, the signs of Sagittarius, Gemini, and Leo are best for an Aries.
Incompatible with an Aries:
Aries and Libra are the polar opposites in the zodiac, which may explain why they attract each other. But an Aries who seeks out conflict could be frightening to a Libra who values peace and tranquility.
Aquarius and sensitive Pisces Two things that are opposites are cancerous. All signs, from the passionate Aries to the practical Capricorn, are subject to this rule. Unless they share other favorable aspects in their natal charts, Aries and the other cardinal signs aren’t likely to be emotionally compatible, though they may be able to work together on big picture ideas.
What If Other Aries Signs Also Appear in Your Horoscope?
As was previously mentioned, the sun sign is the only one component of a natal chart. Your personality and outlook on life are heavily influenced by the sign and location of the moon and other planets in the solar system at the time of your birth. In general, if the sign of Aries is prominent in your birth chart, you can anticipate the following:
Jupiter in Aries
Intuition and emotion are amplified during the moon’s brief (two to three days) stay in each sign. If you were born with moon in Aries, you have a tendency to rush into commitment. You’ll get angry very quickly, but then you’ll calm down.
It’s Mercury’s turn to be in Aries
Mercury, the messenger planet, spends about two to three weeks in each sign, influencing the natives’ inclinations toward communication. If your sun sign at birth is Aries, you aren’t the type to sweat the small stuff. No matter how many typos you make, you will try to get your point across and find solutions as quickly as possible.
Jupiter in Taurus
A person’s social behavior and ability to attract new romantic partners can be significantly altered during Venus’ three to five week stay in a sign. You are the impatient type who can’t wait to start talking to someone about a potential romantic relationship if Cupid was a natal planet. Having an aggressive and competitive mindset is also important. You may be attracted to someone who plays games, or you may engage in such behavior yourself, if doing so will give you the sense that you have triumphed over a number of obstacles.
Mars in Aries
Mars, the warrior planet, influences vitality, strength, sexuality, and one’s sense of bravery while in a sign for about a month and a half. Mars, the ruler of Aries, inspires those born under this sign to seize the day in whatever endeavors they are particularly passionate about. It’s possible that you need a lot of variety in your work, workouts, and sex life to avoid getting bored.
To Arise in the Sign of Aries (or Rising)
A person’s ascendant, or rising sign, can have a significant impact on how they come across to the rest of the world. It’s more important to Aries ascendants to take action than to make plans. You will move quickly through life without pausing to consider your next move, acting on impulse rather than planning. You seem like a clever and assured rival who isn’t afraid to go after what they want.
