2nd Decan Aries -Mars/Aries
Under this decan, the influence of Mars imparts it’s assertive and pugnacious spirit to the personality. Those born under a Mars decanate, therefore, benefit from an energetic and driven disposition. They are willful and sometimes aggressive. Whatever they want, they go about getting in a rather direct and straightforward way. Challenges are not a problem because most obstacles are easily overcome by them. When they are thwarted, however, or blocked from making the progress they desire, they can become temperamental and confrontational.
Whatever the sun sign, those with a Mars decan are likely to be marked by competitiveness and courage. They may be inclined towards acts of bravery and risk taking behaviors. There is more chutzpah and verve than there would be otherwise and this allows them to push ahead in almost all aspects of their life be it for career or survival. Such individuals may possess some leadership ability so long as their forceful nature is channeled properly and doesn’t devolve into tyrannical and abusive expressions.
Mars can make the individual impatient, impetuous and mean, but it can also instill boldness, optimism and confidence. Many of the actions taken or encouraged by Mars are often ego-driven and glory seeking. Mars fancies itself the hero upon whom everyone depends to save the day and do what no one else has the guts to do. They swoop in like an eagle and work quickly and operate like they know what they’re doing (even if they don’t). Pride can make them stubborn and fool hardy but they are also quite honest and frank.
People with a Mars decan are willing to get things started without much ado, forethought or procrastination. In their mind, if they can envision it, they can achieve it. They are not easily intimidated or discouraged by difficult goals, they just need to know that it is possible. They move ahead with confidence and tend not to worry about complications down the road preferring instead to cross those bridges when they get to them.
About the Aries Sun Sign
As an Aries Sun, you are energetic, alert and full of chutzpah. Your first instinct is to act or react, oftentimes without thinking. This can make you quick on the draw but also prone to mishaps and accidents. Aries is a competitor who is attracted to challenges and any opportunity to test their courage and abilities. Being told they can’t do something only motivates them to prove they can. They are passionate and enthusiastic but sometimes egotism and overconfidence can set them up for devastating disappointments when they fall short. Fortunately, their pugnacious spirit won’t leave them feeling sorry for themselves for too long. Aries is capable of bouncing back from almost any set back with renewed determination and resolve.
Aries Sun is a pioneer, explorer and daredevil. They are very independent and seek to do things their own way, free of other people’s influence or help. They tend to operate as either a leader or a loner but can still prove a highly valuable contributor as part of a team. Aries displays a certain boldness and a compulsion to confront their fears and move toward danger rather than run from it. They can be very heroic in the way they forge ahead demonstrating leadership and initiative that others often admire. As a fire sign, Aries emotions are intense and passionate. They tend to express themselves in an unabashedly frank and authentic way. Aries is typically unafraid to speak their mind and may often say things without much concern or consideration for people’s feelings.
Patience is not their strong suit and so it is not uncommon for Aries to get testy and lose their temper. They often take the most direct approach in going about what they are after and being denied or forced to wait for too long can infuriate them. Aries wants to make their mark and distinguish themselves from the pack. Even the quieter among them secretly want to be number one at something. They are almost always active and enjoy starting new projects and enterprises. They are fiercely loyal to the people they love and can often do a great deal for them in gallant fashion.
