There are twelve signs in the Zodiac. Of these, Aries is the first. Number One. Any Aries will tell you there are good and obvious reasons for that. Moreover he's brave enough to say this out loud in front of Leos and Capricorns. He may have a point, but this tells you some things about Aries. He's confident, courageous and candid.
He also thinks well of himself. And if you stick around long enough to get to know him, he'll back up his words with actions -- every day. Eventually, he may even prove he spoke an honest fact.
Aries people arrive between March 20 and April 20 -- the first birthdays of Spring. The Sun's entry into Aries marks the start of that season -- the official end of Winter. Naturally the New Moon in Aries will also happen during that month, although on a different date each year.
In the natural rhythm of life, the New Moon in Aries marks the real beginning of the new year -- a time of initiation, renewed vitality and new beginnings. Compared to this, January 1 is just another day on the calendar invented by humans, no matter how much we try to dress it up.
People born during Aries -- and especially those born near the New Moon in Aries -- are self-reliant, self-motivated people who excel at stirring up change, getting things moving and starting new stuff.

* Aries Rising -- Your self-assertion is what you show the world ---> So ... what IS a "Rising Sign?" ---> The Ascendant of a Natal Chart is also called the "Rising Sign." Astrologers use the two terms interchangeably. It is literally the sign that was rising on the Eastern horizon of the sky at the time you were born in the place where you were born. This is why it is essential to have both a birthplace and a birth time in order to cast a completely valid Natal Chart.
* The Elemental Qualities of Aries -- The Cardinal Fire Sign in Astrology ---> Aries is a Fire Sign ---> The Fire Signs of the Zodiac are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. There is one Fire Sign for each of the Qualities -- Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Aries is Cardinal Fire. Leo is Fixed Fire, and Sagittarius is Mutable Fire. Together, these three elements form the components in the pattern of the Grand Fire Trine.
* Masculine Signs -- The Fire and Air Signs ---> Signs of Life and Intellect -- Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices. Masculine sign people are life's movers-and-shakers.
