March 21 – April 20
The origin of the glyph for Aries is unknown. The symbol, two half moons joined by a straight line, is representative of the upward and outward flow of energy as in the fountain of life. Some see it as a sprouting seed reaching toward the sky. As well, it could be viewed as the eyebrows and nose of the Ram, the astrological symbol for Aries.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The Ram is a masculine fire sign ruled by the planet Mars, the god of war. Aries is symbolic of new beginnings as the world awakens in the spring. The doers of the zodiac, Rams are courageous, brave, energetic, excitable, and optimistic. They are constantly moving forward. The Ram craves excitement; they want to live life to the fullest. Arians are young at heart and they carry this well into their senior years. The Ram is confident and not afraid to take risks. Their adventurous spirit leads them into uncharted waters. The most endearing trait of Rams is their ability to laugh at themselves. Very few signs are able to do this with the openness of an Aries.
Aries are charming and irresistible to the opposite sex. Frequently the initiators in relationships, Arians are passionate and adventurous partners. They need and desire affection more than the other 11 signs. Rams are generous to a fault with both their time and money. They are ever ready to offer a partner their advice, even before they are asked. On the other hand, don’t try to tell an Aries what to do; they will ultimately do things their way. Arians make loyal companions and will defend family and friends in spite of evidence to the contrary.
Aries rules the area of the head and face. They tend to walk with their heads slightly forward. The Ram is prone to headaches, eye strain, and injuries to the head. Dental caries may be an ongoing issue for the Arian. The Ram has an abundance of energy and stamina. Arians may have problems with their feet and suffer from corns and callouses. Busy Rams need to eat a balanced diet to maintain their energetic lifestyle.
As mentioned above Arians do not like to take orders, therefore they are uncomfortable in subordinate positions. They often work on their own or are the boss. Their competitive nature prevents them from accepting defeat easily. They search out challenges. When their job becomes boring they quickly move on. Aries are well-suited to many professions, such as writer, firefighter, dentist, surgeon, and, of course, entrepreneur.
