The Aries Personality
You talkin to me? The zodiac begins with Aries the ram. Ruled by the planet mars, this sign is imbued with martial-like characteristics that give them a driven, enterprising nature. Headstrong and competitive, Aries wants to come out ahead and on top. Obstacles are just a bump in the road for these individuals, they charge ahead with verve and single-minded focus undeterred by dangers that would scare away other signs. They hate waylays and slow moving people who impede their progress. When something or someone stands in the way of their goals, their fiery temper emerges and the ensuing outburst can be quite a spectacle! Fortunately, these flare ups go as quickly as they come. This can make them appear like a**holes even when they don’t mean to be. They just want to get things done!
Like all cardinal signs, Aries is a catalyst, the one who gets the ball rolling. Aries begins with the spring equinox and commences a fresh new season. Cardinal signs carry the energy of new beginnings and this is especially true with Aries. they are attracted to real challenges and thrilling new ventures. They jump at the chance to show off their talents and astonish others with their abilities. They are pioneers and trailblazers, leaders and loners but they are not followers. The more extroverted ones are often thrill seekers, looking for action, generating excitement wherever they go. They are often the life of the party. The more introverted ones may sublimate their energy into intellectual pursuits. and their fire element accentuates this more so. Aries coincides with the first house which governs self image. The number one is also linked to the self, the individual, so is it any wonder that Aries is so ego-centric?
