Aries is the 1st Sign of the Zodiac. For this reason Aries likes to be first. Second place to them just doesn’t seem right. Aries is competitive and will often be found in areas that require a competitive spirit. Aries is brave and adventurous. They forge new directions for other people to follow. Aries focus is straight and direct.
There is no interest at all in side issues. In fact, they won’t even be noticed. To Aries, progress needs to be swift, otherwise, the matter is dropped and something else becomes the centre of attention. Patience and Aries do not go hand in hand.
A quick temper is also an Aries trait and this is predominantly associated with frustration. Aries, tends to rely on what seems obvious, there is no inclination to search the depths. This represents a certain degree of naivety.
Very often Aries are accused of being selfish. This is rarely an ulterior motive. It is just that they are so focussed upon what they want, or think is important, that nothing else is taken into account. It is very much tunnel vision, straight to the point. Sacrifice is not one of their words. However, they can also accept that there are certain things other people cannot sacrifice as well.
There is an ability to drop something that has become too difficult or too complicated and head off in a completely new direction. They do not hark back on what has been left in the past. Once it is gone, it is gone. If means that much to them, they will simply start something similar again.
Aries can be accident prone, particularly where speed, heat or sharpness is concerned. Accidents are not meant to be – they are a result of not paying proper attention.
Aries rules the head, eyes and the part of the brain, which influences the body’s muscular system. People who have any of their personal planets or ascendant in Aries will have sensitivity to these areas of their body.
If the Sun is in Aries: The need will arise at some stage in life to fight for one’s rights. The battle must be entered into or a sense of weakness will inhibit many of life’s undertakings. Looking into things is an essential lesson as well as maintaining the focus. Deal with one thing at a time. As one stage nears its end the next stage will begin to emerge and become recognisable. Short-term goals of no longer than a two-year duration are best. It will be new adventures and experiences that will give a true sense of what the meaning of life is for an Aries.
If the Moon is in Aries: There is little hesitation in the nature – let’s do it is the theme otherwise opportunity may be lost. Energetic. The focus is intent upon the subject in a tunnel-visioned sort of way. As a result side issues are not recognised which will often be seen by others as naivety. Patience is not a strong point. If something seems to be going nowhere fast it will be dropped and the attention will be turned in another direction. A natural ability for putting things together that is utilised in all sorts of ways. Fighting spirit. Temper may need control.
If Mercury is in Aries: will want to understand things quickly. If this doesn’t happen, it is forgotten and will move onto something else. Very straight forward in expressing what one thinks. May also get into arguments quite easily.
If Venus is in Aries: impulsive with money. Needs some sort of change or new challenge in the money earning situation every couple of years. Relationships will begin and finish very quickly. Will enjoy competition and a challenge. There is an attraction to other people who have Aries traits.
If Mars is in Aries: highly motivated. Will not want to waste time. If there is something to do, get on with it. Has a high energy level. Very sensitive about making a fool of themselves, if they can’t do as well as someone else.
If the Ascendant is in Aries: Speed is the name of the game. There is little patience to wait around too long for anything. You have a preference to arrive early. There is a need for caution with hot or sharp things. You will look single-mindedly in the direction being taken but can miss periphery details.
