You are born under the sun sign of Aries if your birthday falls between March 21st and April 19th. Aries are a Fire sign, like Leo and Sagittarius. The insignia of this star sign is the ram.
Aries Personality Profile
Aries are quick tempered, ambitious and very driven. They work extremely hard to achieve their goals – which is fortunate, as they set their sights very high indeed.
Aries can be rather blunt and forceful in their dealings with other people. They rarely mean any hurt, and are often mystified as to how they have caused offence – this needs to be spelled out to them.
This sign is one of the least patient in the zodiac – in fact, you’d be hard pressed to find any other sign with a bigger tendency to leap before they look! This characteristic can get Aries into a lot of trouble – however, their essentially clever nature and well honed instincts mean that, much of the time, they are headed in the right direction.
Aries are extremely honest and are full of integrity. They can be self centered when it comes to figuring out the course of action that is best for them – and hang anyone else who may be affected by what they want to do! However, they are extremely gallant and will go out of their way to help anyone who, for example, has broken down or is stranded.
Aries tend to be drawn to quite macho, active careers. They tend to do very well in the army and other services. They also may enjoy unusual careers like working as a stunt person or as a racing car driver. This last will suit, as Aries also tend to like working with mechanical things that go fast – many an Aries dreams of becoming a pilot!
Their love of action combined with their inclination towards being the knight in shining armour means that they like careers in the emergency rescue services. So, working in mountain rescue, as a coast guard or as a fire fighter will appeal a lot to Aries.
If an Aries go into business, they will be forward thinking and innovative, as well as very competitive. However, they should take care to have one or two Earth signs on board. The influence of a Virgo, Taurus or Capricorn will be needed to make sure that practical details come together while the Aries is off wheeling, dealing and providing leadership.
Aries are very keen on physical sports, and will be happy if they can combine an aspect of this into their careers.
They tend to like one on one physical and combative sports. This includes conventional sports like boxing and wrestling, but in recent decades they have been amongst the first of the signs to take up oriental martial arts, including karate, judo, kung fu, muay Thai and so on. Winning in these sports means a great deal to an Aries.
Aries also love speed – they tend to be enthusiastic about their cars or, even better, motorcycles. They would love to dabble in Formula 1, but on a smaller scale, enjoy go-karting and quad biking.
Aries also like fast paced team sports like football and rugby. However, they tend to want to lead the team, but sometimes their analytic and strategic thinking is lacking.
Aries Love Profile
If an Aries falls in love, they fall in love hard. They will do anything to pursue their intended, and will all but refuse to take no for an answer.
However, they actually enjoy the chase in itself, as well as it being the means to an end. Their intended should not submit to their charms too quickly, to maintain their intrigue. Aries may also get rather bored and deflated if they feel that their wooing is over too quickly!
Aries get on particularly well with Air signs; particularly Libra, but also Aquarius and Gemini. These signs are very sociable and will be able to smooth things out if the Aries has been rather too honest with friends and family! They will also be best able to reason sudden Aries desires into long term rational goals and plans.
Aries tend to not get on very well with Water signs – they find the emotional intensity of Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer rather frustrating, and cannot abide the sulking that goes on if they say something that offends their watery companions.
Life with an Aries is full of ups and downs, and they may come home ready to put a plan into action that is going to cause upheaval for the rest of the family! But they do genuinely try their best for their loved ones, and a calm discussion is usually enough to work out any problems. It is also worth bearing in mind that, often, their ideas really will be for the best.
Aries also believe that their home should be a place of sanctuary and relaxation. They dislike arguments within the family, and love a little bit of pampering after a hard day of battling with the world!
The plain-speaking Aries can upset more sensitive people, particularly those who are born under a Water sign. Remember, if an Aries has offended you, the best way to deal with it is to quickly point it out, let them make amends, and then forget about the matter.
Aries can sometimes lack staying power, and may be caught up in a new idea or project before they have properly finished with their previous passion.
The dominant nature of Aries, as well as their sometimes quickly changing enthusiasms, mean that others can sometimes feel as if they are being dragged along in their wake. Aries may need to work on spending time explaining their reasoning to others, and letting them have an input into decisions that affect them.
Aries can be extremely quick tempered. They can fly into rages at very slight provocation. However, their anger leaves just as quickly as it arrives – although other people may not quite see this the same way, and may find them unsettling to work for. If they are in a position of authority, then Aries need to find alternative ways of letting off steam.
Air signs are usually very good at deflating any arrogance on the part of the Aries. More generally, an Aries will sometimes need people around them who are patient and prepared to deal with any upset people or unfinished matters that they have left in their wake.
