Aries Horoscope: An in-depth look at the astrological profile
The astrological representation of Aries is the Ram. Similar to the common notion of the Ram, Aries individuals are capable of achieving a lot of goals by utter power and force of will— “ramming” their way to their objectives. In this fashion, Aries demonstrates the cardinal value attributed to it. Arians can be straight, daring, and have a no-nonsense attitude. Compared to the other signs of the Zodiac, Aries is the other extreme of Libra, which is the Balance, as Arians are about self and goals rather than stability and poise. They are independent, and self-centered, but they are not reclusive.
The planet that rules Aries is Mars (Ares in Latin), which in Roman mythology is the God of War. Ares was a brave, forceful, and assertive god, although belligerence and obsessiveness were his downsides. He was also easily roused, and he could give in to anger. At those moments, he has a will for damage and destruction. Besides Aries, planet Mars also rules Scorpio; Aries is the male (or day) side of Mars, and Scorpio is the female (or night) side of Mars. Both Aries and Scorpio are connected with war: Aries is the brute force and Scorpio is the brain in the shadows. The Ares god is full of life and exuberant, full of brute power and vigor; and those born under his sign mirror his leadership and resourcefulness. They are tenaciously self-sufficient and strong-minded, and possess the natural grit to fight their way to their goals. Aries-born are extremely aggressive, and sometimes come across as conceited, bossy, or prejudiced. However, these traits make them the obvious selection to initiate undertakings and start things off. They are skilled at initiating projects, and work progresses fast under their leadership. However, a smooth project quickly becomes uninteresting to them, and as a result Arians lack follow-through and lose interest before it’s completed. To succeed, Arians must learn to restrain themselves to carry their projects through to the end.
Aries’s natural element is Fire. Naturally, fire signs are physical: they prefer action to common sense, understanding, or sentiment. If introduced to a new project or suggestion or proposal, they tend to rush into it due to their native fervor and passion to lead the pack. A great advantage for Arians is that they go beyond regular limits. Sporadically, their inclination for speed and hast gets them into danger, but they stay out of trouble if they force themselves to plan things out, which in turn gets them often frustrated. It is easy for others to judge Arians as pushy, impolite, and selfish. But they are only showing their natural traits and following the guide of Mars which keeps pushing them ahead, impatiently to new horizons. Immediately after they find a new project, the old one is out of their favor.
Aries-born try to get all that they want as they please, when they please. To get along, they sometimes learn that it isn’t appropriate all the time to insist on having their way, and they can learn to be patient. However, this makes them want to butt their heads into the closest wall, and they don’t even try to hide their frustration. The best of them understand that it is an opportunity for them to grow as they learn their own nature and how to control it. It is a hard task for them as they are born to believe that they are the only ones that matter and they think that everyone is like them and have no feelings. Those who are more successful in life are those who become sensitive to the needs and desires of the people in their lives.
Arians party just as intense as they work. Physical sports is their preference, especially competitive sports, and they enjoy individual games as well—if they happen to be a personal challenge. It may seem odd under these conditions that an “in-love Aries” is playful and romantic.
This sign rules the following body parts: the head, the face, and the brain. Because of that those born under the sign of Aries can be more prone to headaches and nosebleeds than other people. The color of the sign is the color of blood, war, and the red planet Mars.
The best qualities and advantages of people born under the Aries Horoscope are power, initiative, and guts. They are at their best when they initiate a project and take it through the initial stages.
