The first step on the spiral

by Serenity Chappell

Aries -- the start of the spiral

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. It follows Pisces in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Aries covers the time from March 20th until April 20th.

It is a time of year that emphasizes initiative and new beginnings. In Astrology, it is associated with courage, enterprise, self-assertion, confidence, and getting things started.



Aries -- a time of venturing forth, showing initiative

In mundane matters, Aries is associated with leadership, pioneering efforts, independence, aggression and making progress.

The Zodiacal symbol for Aries is the Ram. Aries is the Cardinal Fire sign. The Fire Signs in Astrology are active, courageous, and self-involved.

Aries is a Cardinal sign

The Cardinal Signs in Astrology are proactive and initiating. They deal with life's problems by taking action to change circumstances ... and create new conditions. Thus Aries brings an enthusiastic insistence (which a lot of folks call "pushiness") to the lifestyle it creates.

The other Cardinal Signs are Cancer, Capricorn, and Libra. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Aries.

Aries is a Fire sign

The other Fire signs are Leo and Sagittarius. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Aries.

Traditionally Aries is compatible with Leo and Sagittarius, other Aries, Gemini, and Aquarius. Gemini and Aquarius bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Aries.

Summing Up Aries

On the other hand, a match between Aries and Cancer or Aries and Capricorn carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Aries and Astrology Sign Libra will require well-defined "territories" for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Aries / Libra relationships can be kind of mixed blessing.

Physically, Aries rules the head. The ruling planet of Aries is Mars. Aries is associated with the color red. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Aries is the diamond. Were you Born with The Sun in Aries?

Do You Have the Sun in Aries? -- What happens when you're born right on the cusp? ---> What's your sign? ---> Do you have The Sun in Aries? If you were born between March 20 and April 20, you likely have an Aries Sun in your Natal Chart. But the beginning and end dates can be a little ragged because the celestial schedule and human calendars don't always synch. If you're one of those special souls born near a sign change ... "on the cusp", you'll need a real astrologer ...

Understanding The Sun in Aries ---> Connect with your initiative ---> The Sun travels through the Astrology sign Aries once a year, a trip that lasts about a month. The Sun is in Aries from late March until late April. The energy of the Sun in Aries is dynamic, assertive and competitive -- and accompanies a rise in these attitudes in .everyone. While the Sun travels through Aries, you may become more active, more willing to attract attention and more interested in getting things done.


Cusp-born Aries

* The Aries-From-Pisces Cusp-Born Person -- March 20 to March 25 ---> Where spirituality intersects initiative ---> The dynamic, forceful, audacious, candid, and often confrontational Aries-from-Pisces person lives a rich inner life where those mystical Pisces interests are nurtured and cultivated ... and he will show a distinctly spiritual perspective where "going the extra mile" to help another is also one of the rules he lives by.
