Aries Profile

Your zodiac birth sign of Aries represents new beginnings, the commencement of things, youth and exuberant energy, which is why Aries-born individuals are always so full of spirit and such high energy levels. You are a warm and endearing individual.

The fire signs under which you were born are creative and therefore you are creatively energised by this astrological element. You want creativity to be a part of your life and because of this, you're not just a spectator but you're totally involved in all of life's affairs.

You have incredible self-confidence, power and zeal. This also makes you very strong in your opinions and some might equate this with having an extremely large ego, which you probably wouldn't deny, would you now, Aries?

Speed is your middle name. You love living on the edge and you want your life to be exciting. The Aries experience of life is actually quite thrilling. You hate boredom and want to spend your life with others who are equally as energetic as yourself.

One of the famous Aries traits is courage and in the face of adversity, you're able to rise to the occasion, never shrinking or pulling back, Sometimes, however, you do tempt fate and may compromise your safety and personal security. You do tend to be reactive in situations so there's a need to curb your hair trigger temperament. Don't provoke others and try to be a little more patient.

The Aries temperament is irritable and because you want fast results, you sometimes compromise tolerance and this will be one of your bigger lessons in life. Forbearance, and being patient with others.

You are inspirational and aspire to be number one. You want to be the best and work well under adverse situations. Others look up to you. When people get to know you a little more intimately that they see your insistent and sizzling exterior of yours is only a part of your more sensitive character and that behind your daring persona rests a warm and caring spirit.

Those who know you best will confirm that although you do tend to have a big ego, you are most definitely a generous and loving individual whom they treasure as a friend. This is because you have the knack of making up for your imperfections by being so passionate and exciting in everything you do.

You need to be in control of your situation and resent others pushing you around. You must never take well-meaning advice as a challenge to you. Remember, Aries – you can always learn something from others, even if you don't at first see the sense or logic behind it.

You're capable of sharing your great ideas with others and should never shy away from teamwork. You can help others to become better at what they do through your own leading example. Part of this example involves reaching for the sky and attempting goals which others would never dream of. This is definitely your specialty. You are an adventurer, an explorer and someone who hates treading the beaten path.

You go for your goals and give 100% of yourself in doing so. Sometimes your style is a little tense and hard-nosed but people who know you soon learn that if they want to be part of the Aries company, they have to keep up. Your motto to them is, "If you can't stand the heat in the kitchen, get out!"

Aries Cusps

Aries - Pisces cusp

The intensity, fire and drive of your typical Aries Sun sign is significantly softened by the Piscean influence. This means that if you're born in the first week or so of Aries ie between the 21st and the 28th of March, you are called a cusp baby and will be influenced not only by Mars and Aries but also by Jupiter, Neptune and the sign that they rule, namely Pisces.

Although you still have the drive and determination of your Aries Sun sign, you're also influenced by compassionate and loving Pisces. Your heart reaches out to others and you feel the suffering and pain of your fellow men. You're able to empathise and are therefore a great listener when it comes to others wanting to share their problems with you. You never turn others away and this is why you're a loved by all your friends and family.

There is a danger that you out too impulsive in giving your assistance to others and will often kick yourself when that advantage is taken too far. You realize afterwards that you are an easy target and people do indeed take you for a ride. This will of course make you very angry once you understand what a fool you have been. Try to assess the character and motives of others more carefully before quickly giving over your time, money or your heart.

There may be a difficulty in choosing between your head and your heart at times. Making decisions may not always be easy as you eventually get it that jumping the gun has caused you to make errors of judgment. But although you need to hold back at times you do run the risk of becoming a procrastinator by swinging too far in the opposite direction.

Try to balance your emotional and mental assessment problems, people and your life direction. Eventually you'll find the perfect balance between head and heart.

An important life lesson for you will be to trust in the process of life and not get too caught up in the decision-making process itself. Get your facts, get some feedback from those you trust even those who are perhaps professionals and then make a decision. Once this is done however you must let go and let life determine the outcome.

Aries - Taurus cusp

The independent nature which is so predominantly a feature of your Aries character is heightened by being born at the tail end of your Sun sign. The next sign of the Zodiac is Taurus and if you were born between the 13th and 20th of April you will exhibit many of the traits of the bull.

Dependable, sometimes a stubborn but always loving your combined Sun sign of Aries and Taurus makes you are very reliable character indeed. You have a tenacity coupled with creative enterprise that can make you a very successful person not just in your professional endeavors but your personal affairs as well. You're always loyal to a tee and this you take from both Sun signs.

Taurus born individuals are very security conscious so you will always make an effort to ensure that your future financial circumstances are comfortable and will leave very little to chance. Because you have such a high level of Aries energy your industriousness along with your tenacity and dependability make you an awesome force to be dealt with.

You will always have money and even if in the early stages of your life you are not super wealthy, you will slowly but surely grow and their stake which will hold you in good stead later in your life.

One life lesson that you must heed is that of flexibility. You will run into many difficulties if you hold on to your position to strongly in the face of good advice. You must learn when to let go, when change is necessary and most importantly when you are wrong. By lending your ego get the better of you will suffer setbacks in your personal relationships. Humility is one of the important keywords are those of you born in this Aries and Taurus cuspal time of the year.

Aries At Large

Although each zodiac sign occupies a space of 30° in the Zodiac covering one month of the year,  each of those signs can be further divided into 3 segments of 10° each. By looking more carefully at the statements which are called decans, where are able to refine our reading of each of the zodiac signs. Take a look now at where your birthdate sits and how other star signs of the same element influence your character and destiny.
March 21 - 30

If you're an Aries born between the 21st and the 30th of March, Mars doubly rules and controls your destiny. You are full of fire and, on many occasions, brimstone. Power, vitality and high level of energy mark you out from others. You need to work out, get heavily involved with sports and other physical activities which will give you an adequate outlet. You are a great leader and often challenge the status quo because you believe that things can be done better than what they are. This can, however, put you at odds with others and make you a target for enemies. Although you are fearless, you may sometimes need to temper your opinions to fit in with the more conservative crowd.

March 31 - April 10

Being born between the 31st of March and the 10th of April makes you proud, loyal and sometimes inflexible in your opinions. You have a very strong idea about how life should be lived and you're not prepared to make concessions to others. You are, however, very charming and love to stand out in the crowd. The way you dress, your appearance and your reputation are extremely important to you. You are also very competitive and this aspect of your nature can also, like the first group of Aries just mentioned, make you a target for those who become envious of your successful and unique life. You may need to employ a little humility to smooth out some of the more difficult relationships in your life.

April 11 - 20

If you were born between the 11th and the 20th of April means that you have a broad mind and a full and open heart. This gives you spiritual as well as material ambitions and you will look at life differently to most Aries, indeed most people generally. The thrill or travelling and the excitement of exploring the world and different cultures means that you'll be plugged into news, current affairs and other topics that give you a deeper understanding of the world that you live in. Progress and expanding your mind, educating yourself and sharing noble ideas with others will make you happy and fulfilled. You certainly have something to teach others and this will be an important component of your destiny.

Aries Man



Physically vital


Leadership prowess

Intimidating competitor

Aries men cut striking figures. Mars endows them with vitality, enigmatic charisma and a sense of purpose. At the same time, the planet could turn around to manifest its darker palette of aggressiveness and fiery influence, which is why Aries men are often misunderstood.

Hailing from the planet of war, Mars, it is no surprise that you possess unyielding courage in the face of a battle, either to fight or to protect the people you cherish most. The influence of this planet is so engulfing that it stops you from bowing to those more influential or commanding than you. You remain unfazed in the face of death, and danger is a feeling that you are comfortable confronting.

Your innate leadership blossoms in a professional context, ordaining you to touch the stars in a short span of time. Attribute your climb up the professional ladder to your unique combination of excellence and lack of patience. When you take the helm, you demand full allegiance from those around you and reciprocate this loyalty by helping them achieve their ambitions as well.

Your sexual energies are also reflective of your intrinsic nature'dominating and demanding. The section on compatibility ratings will lend greater insight into this part of your nature. In short, you are as unforgiving and demanding in sex as you are in your career. This sexual drive, when unfulfilled, transforms into acute frustration, and it has devastating consequences for those around you.

It's is well known that the Aries male responds to threat or being cornered by going into attack mode. Unfortunately, the less evolved male may display a lack of self-control, causing colossal emotional uproar and physical violence. In the more evolved Aries, this physical and retaliatory attitude may not be as prevalent. Nevertheless, the Aries male strives to win under any circumstance.

You don't mince words, Aries. A spade is a spade, even at the cost of hurting someone else's feelings. This doesn't particularly bother you. You detest carrying residues of the past. You can be ruthless with words, and this is often not appreciated. At the same time, everyone remains intensely aware of their place in your life, so there is no ambiguity on that

Your unrelenting drive in pursuing your goals brings out the callous part of you, ready to crush any opponent who dares to get in your way. Wielding the Martian powers of your ruling planet, you overtake any competitor without taking any prisoners. Your adversaries should be warned about this personality streak within you.

Aries Woman





Protective of family and friends


Elegance and gorgeousness personified, your innate character is revealed only to a select few who painstakingly endeavour to dig deep into your personality. Your fiery eyes disguise your true nature until you decide to let your guard down. Of course, you're a woman on a mission and you confirm this by the sheer speed of your speech, actions and mannerisms. This is your way of saying, 'Hey, you'd better pay attention to what I have to say!' Not surprisingly, you seize attention just as you require it.

A perfect example of a career-minded Arian girl is fashion model and designer Elle McPherson, with her beautiful sleek figure and larger-than-life ambitiousness. The desire to break through and take the helm is something a true Arian woman can relate to. Aries always want to be the first, and women born under this sign are no exception.

Your creativity knows no bounds, and you have the ability to bring forth results even under pressure. You are so driven that you leave no stone unturned to accomplish the task at hand. In short, the moment you are assigned a job, others consider it done. The world marvels at your inimitable flair for not just completing a task, but also maintaining a high standard of professionalism. It is for this reason that some Aries women burn the candle at both ends, so you must know when to slow the tempo.

You have a tendency to be highly opinionated, which is why people sometimes view you as entirely black or white. It's not because you don't listen to others; blame it on overconfidence in your judgment. You seldom find yourself battling boredom because you've got a multitude of exciting things planned at all times. This is why the Aries woman is usually successful and respected, and why she can carry responsibility and accountability with immense aplomb.

Your zest and fervour for life can be overpowering for friends. Their intensity doesn't even come close to yours! Try to tone it down for those whose confidence may not be as high as yours.

Your words are sharp and your communication is transparent. It is due to your honesty that people in your life seem to know their place. Integrity is the key word for the Aries woman, and even though people don't always like you, they lay their absolute belief in what you say. Once you commit to a task, you ensure you pull it through. However, your impatience for getting a task done quickly may rub others the wrong way. You must learn to curb your impulsiveness when things don't go exactly as planned.

You won't have to chase success, Aries, because it's a given with your highly ambitious streak. Even if you choose to be a homemaker and tend to your husband and children, you will be driven by the same tendency to give nothing short of your best. You wield skill and excel at being an ace mother and homemaker.

To offset some of the tension you experience under your star sign, physical exercise is essential. Not only will it make you look and feel rejuvenated, it would also have a calming effect on your mind and emotions, enabling you to channel your energies correctly. An active body is one of the surest ways to ease the physical and internal stress that your fast-paced mind and lifestyle impose on you.

Expect turbulence infriendships, especially if youendup associating withpersonalities who are just as headstrong as you. You'll needto make compromises because youhate taking aback seat inany relationship.

You have no qualms about soaking in luxury, and you revel in the pleasures of life. Strong colours, especially red, maroon and pink, uplift your spirits. Having said that, just being an Aries woman is a statement in itself!

Aries Child

Parents of Aries! Please note that you can now cancel your gym membership if you have an Aries child. You're not going to need it anymore. Why? Aries is fast-paced, energetic and forever on the go. So can you keep up with them? Not completely but at least every day will now be a new workout for you, as Mars rules speed, force and relentless drive. Your Aries child is adventurous too but also somewhat accident-prone. They want to explore the world and understand everything about. They are trying by nature but if you give them the time, energy and information to satisfy their curiosity you'll soon find just how clever and intelligent they are.

You'll need CCTV monitors in a dozen different locations to stay on top of their curious and sometimes willful activities. Aries kids can be rather wild. Because young Aryan children burn the candle at both ends at also advised that you help them develop good sleeping habits. Life with your Aries child may well be challenging but you'll always be rewarded amply for sharing your love with them.

One simple solution to help overcome these initial problems with your Aries child is to give them a clear-cut regime with a schedule of activities that will capture their attention and imaginations. Tire them out with physical exercise and a couple of intense sporting programs before they wear you out and drive you into the ground.

You must teach them the lesson of sharing power. Because they are such dominating little personalities, other little kids will resent them if they forcibly try to control playtime. You may need to knock their egos down a little to teach them the practicality of relating to others.

Don't argue with your Aries child ' there will be no end to it. They will always want to win. Imagine that, a grown adult trying to win a battle of wills with a 3 year old. It happens with a lot of children but Aries are seasoned soldiers by the time they start walking, so get you bulletproof armor on now.

Aries Lover

Lethargic and torpid candidates need not apply! To put the record straight, a romantic attachment with Aries entails an arduous round-the-clock commitment, with gallons of mindfulness, physical energy and creative reciprocation. Aries lovers leave no room for meandering. When a partner invests 100 per cent in their relationship with you, they naturally expect a life of exhilaration, verve and love in return. You take this seriously and push your limits to colour life with exuberance and contentment in every possible way.

With Mars ruling your personality and being the driving force behind your birth sign, it stands to reason why sex has such a critical stronghold in your relationships. The words lethargic and torpid in the first paragraph also refer to your lover in the bedroom. Be prepared to witness your relationship crumble if your lover exhibits traits such as these. You need an imaginative lover between the sheets, someone to gratify your smallest sensual yearning and explore your hidden fantasies. Having such a lover will bind the relationship and gratify both of you.

Aries spend their early years playing the field and toying with a multitude of possibilities. They often shy away from the prospect of a new partnership at the cost of being misjudged as shallow or commitmentphobic. That's not altogether true; they like to filter out the wrong choices to get to the right one sooner.

You glorify the love of your life, Aries, and derive immense pride from your relationships. Due to the collective influence of Mars and Venus, you naturally attract many partners, but are selective in your choice of the 'one'. You are also attracted to and driven by a fierce desire to prove your prowess, especially if you are a man born under this sign.

Despite this, Aries, you make an ideal marriage partner as your world revolves around your family and loved ones, who you value above anything else. People mistakenly think that you are driven towards material benefit and acquiring the best in life, but they don't realise that this is the way you prove yourself to the ones you love. Highly protective towards family, you maintain a vigilant guard over them, preventing the world from intruding into your territory. That's just who you are, Aries!

Aries Friend

Those searching for true companionship will find meaning in their friendship with you. You are one of most loyal friends a person could be blessed with, Aries. At the same time, you are accustomed to unpleasant judgments, like being painted as egotistical and neglectful towards family and friends. However, you reveal your greatness at the darkest hour by demonstrating your faithfulness to those who need it. You may express it in your own inimitable manner, but your loyalty shines through.

Your commitment, energy and enthusiasm make your social life immensely colourful. You value social engagements, not just as a means of passive interaction, but also as a way of shining as a host. People are often awestruck by the sheer magnitude of your dynamism. You have a natural flair for carrying the crowd on your shoulders, and your exuberance is infectious. No wonder others feel enlivened in your presence.

Friendship with Aries is characterised by warmth and truthfulness. Though you are uncompromising in expecting absolute loyalty, you give back much more than what you take. You go out of your way to reciprocate with an astronomical degree of belief in your loved ones, and you prove to be a mainstay during their rainy days. However, people should be warned about your absolute intolerance for any kind of transgression. You are incapable of putting up with wrongdoing and have a strong tendency to voice your discontent in a manner that is too harsh for your peers.

Arians enjoy forging bonds with a diverse mix of people as monotony is something they refuse to put up with, either in their own lives or the lives of others. Boredom and lethargy, both physical and emotional, have the potential to enervate ties of deep friendship, regardless of how timeless your association may be. Those friends must be prepared to pull up their socks if they want to foster a happy relationship with you.

A burst of regular surprises andexciting activities are aneasy way to earn brownie points withAries! Inshort, they findadventurousness to be one of the most attractive qualities inpeople.

If you could tame one personality trait, it would have to be your tendency to get easily upset. Doing so would dramatically improve the quality of your relationships. If you find a way to curb your edginess, arrogance and need to dominate others, your friendships will prosper and life will be much happier.

Aries Enemy

My strong advice to those nurturing a desire to go to war with Aries is to think again. Ruled by the warring planet Mars, not only are they endowed with ferocity, competitive instincts and an insatiable desire to succeed, they work relentlessly to outshine others until the task reaches completion.

Even if you do not particularly like them, it's better to have Aries as an ally instead of putting up with their wrath as an enemy. It would also be wise to keep Aries at arm's length to avoid meandering into precarious territory. However, you, Aries, should work on developing more under- standing and leniency when it comes to your adversaries. As I write this, I can't help but recall the Roman gladiator fighting and ruthlessly inflicting wounds on their competitor.

You need to be wary of your impulsiveness and tendency to draw hasty conclusions. You imagine the worst, even before getting all your facts straight. Making accusations doesn't work well for you; it alienates friends and robs you of the possibility of patching things up.

My Light and Shadow

The Light and Shadow

The light and the dark are part of human nature and each star sign exhibits this polarity. It is the yin and yang of life and once we confront these shadowy areas within ourselves the sooner we are able to break free of all self limiting behaviours and habits.

Aries: The light side

People can't help but be drawn to your enthusiasm and bright personality. You stand out in the crowd at a party and for this reason you'll never be short of friends.

You have a way with words and even your personal life seems to be a never-ending sales spiel; you definitely have the gift of the gab. People love it and are enthralled by your quick and interesting stories.

Even though you're impatient and want your way at all costs, you are caring and loyal and will help people wherever you can. Compassion is not your prime character trait, but if you feel someone needs assistance when the chips are down, you will always be there to help them.

You never beat around the bush and are completely honest about your feelings so people will take you or leave you. You have great self-confidence and the courage of your convictions and there's rarely, if ever, any deception about the way you deal with others.

You're not a pretender and your brutal form of honesty is often nerve-wracking to others, but you prefer to deal with the truth, even if others' sensitivities are sometimes affected.

Aries: The shadow side

Whilst you make a fantastic leader in any situation never allow this to turn into bossiness. It will only make people resent and withdraw their support for you. Leading by example should always be uppermost in your mind and so only act in a way that you'd like others to also act.

You are highly opinionated and yes, you are right, but not always! You can be quietly assertive without running roughshod over other people's attitudes. Adolf Hitler is the worst case example of an Aries with tyrannical viewpoints. When ego gets the better of an Aries, it tends to overshadow the most beautiful parts of their character. You have an immense amount of confidence and your decisiveness is second to none, but when you make a quick decision you often do it without adequate consultation and this can undermine your personal relationships. Listen to what other people have to say as their contributions may enhance the process of your own success.

Don't be so angry or impatient and don't allow emotional manipulation to interfere with your relationships. By becoming more aware of these shadow traits, you can let the bright sunshine of your personality remove these elements forever.
