You Are An Aries!
The Zodiac Sign of Aries— March 21 – April 20
As the zodiac’s first sign, Aries’ (represented by the Ram) personality traits include a strong sense of leadership, individuality and a need to be in charge. Understanding Aries traits can help you get along with this sign in love, work and life. Aries might be well known for some of their more brash traits and characteristics but what many don’t realize is they also have an extremely thoughtful and generous side too. When it comes to their loved ones they would give them just about anything if it would help to make them happy!
Difficult traits of the Aries sign include selfishness, tactlessness, harsh opinions and impatience, Aries can also be naïve; although they talk a good game about their independence, many Aries secretly like to be babied, coddled and even financially supported. At times, Aries can be entitled, helping themselves to other people’s hard-earned bounties. They can also be extremely generous, sweeping in heroically and championing their loved ones.
Aries Traits: Enterprising, Incisive, Spontaneous, Daring, Active, Courageous and Energetic, the Aries are the proverbial infants, guileless and optimistic to the fault. However, they also are impatient, impetuous, vain, proud and egoistic.
Aries Element: Fire
Aries is one of the three zodiac signs grouped under the fire element. The other two fire signs are Leo and Sagittarius. Since Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac cycle, it’s like the match that lights the blaze. Many Aries people are trailblazers and trendsetters. Under the influence of an Aries planetary cycle, we all become more pioneering and innovative, leaping without looking or putting our bold ideas out there.
Aries People: What They’re Like
Aries people tend to have a lot of energy, which they apply to everything from tackling supersized projects to unleashing their lusty libidos with a lover. This confident sign is known to leap before looking, diving into each new experience with a zest for life that few others can muster. As the zodiac’s first sign, they love to be number-one and can be amazing trendsetters and trailblazers. These people are true originals who inspire the rest of us. With all of their fire power and can-do attitude, there’s nothing an Aries can’t (and won’t) take on. At times, Aries can be selfish or overly focused on themselves. It can be a “blind spot” for them, and friends of Aries may need to gently remind them from time to time to share their toys. Aries are born with an innate sense of entitlement, which helps them shatter glass ceilings but can also be off-putting to people in extreme doses. This go-getter sign can come across as abrasive or overly aggressive. However, Aries will never back down from a challenge and can be heroic champions of anyone in distress.
