The April 2 Zodiac Personality
Pioneering and original, people born on this day are highly motivated to make their mark on the world, but they may also seek to achieve this by joining forces with others. This Aries is more amenable to functioning as part of a team rather than operating like a maverick, going solo and claiming credit all for themselves. They understand and appreciate the value that others bring to the table and how best to use those strengths.
Aries is one of the cardinal astrology signs along with that of Cancer, Capricorn and Libra. Cardinal signs are catalyzers and initiators of new enterprises. The first day of Aries begins March 21 and commences the Spring Equinox. As the first sign of the Zodiac, the Ram represents the energy of hope and potential. They usher in the start of a new cycle for which a panoply of exciting possibilities are waiting to be materialized and explored.

They prefer to get along with people as much as possible and can be quite tolerant and forgiving of the misdeeds and shortcomings of others. Although they possess a potent constitution and strong drives, they have little to no interest in controlling or dominating others.

A need for validation and approval can make them codependent and overly reliant on others to make them happy. Furthermore, they may also be highly sensitive to rejection and have difficulty letting go and moving on when things fail to work out between them and others.
Learning to detach is an important lesson for the April 2 Ram to learn. Their sense of security can get all too tied up in their their affiliations and need for recognition by others. It is likely this emancipation will not be fully realized until later in life but once it is, they will feel more liberated and stronger as an individual.
During their youth, up until around the age of 18, it is likely that a strong female figure plays a large role in their lives. From the age of 19 to 48, their sun progresses through Taurus where they develop an increased interest in stability and financial security. After the age of 48, it then moves into Gemini where their interest in communication and knowledge is enhanced.
