Aries is a Fire Sign -- Red is an Aries color
Provocative, strong, hard-driving, commanding
ambitious, zealous, venturesome, brave, take-charge
Aries is a dynamic, charismatic energy that ignites your ambitions, fuels your initiative & begins another segment of your journey around Creation's Cycle. It plays the role of the pioneer, the trail-blazer, moving out into the world with courage & confidence. Its competitive spirit gives you an edge in moments of striving & thriving
It puts its impressive resourcefulness up against every problem & challenge it confronts, & finds ways to win ... even if it has to invent a new one. Aries' purpose is to propel you to success, by showing you -- having you prove to yourself / see for yourself -- what you can do when you put your heart into it.
Aries contains a set of attitudes and perspectives closely aligned with the interests of Mars and the Natural 1st House. As the Sun (or any planet for that matter) transits Aries, all these basically merge and come up for for attention.
You'll see them in your views, opinions and behavior, in the attitudes and concerns of the people around you. You see them in the situations you deal with -- and in the lessons you learn ... which, of course, are part of conscious living. The more you are aware of these, the more complete your experience. This is why Astrology can be such a rich and valuable asset.

* Aries ... on Temperament and Temper ---> Aries is the first sign of Spring. ---> A matter of perspective ---> From the descriptions written of Aries -- across the board from the anonymous authors of dime-store Sun Sign booklets to the creators of respected Astrology texts that only someone devoted to the study would even think of reading -- you get the picture that these people are obnoxious, bossy, hot-tempered and generally hard to be around.
* Celebrating Aries -- The 5 most distinctive / admirable traits of the sign ---> Perspective ---> Their remarkable drive and enterprise. Aries citizens are always doing something. Sometimes it takes physical movement. Sometimes their projects and plans take place mostly in their minds. Either way they are "in motion" somewhere.

* Conscious Living with Aries -- When The Sun travels through -- the Aries sector in your chart ---> Where is Aries in your chart?Aries is the Spring Fire Sign. ---> When the Sun travels through Aries what area does it cover in your Natal Chart? What house(s) are involved in this particular slice of the sky? And specifically, what house (or houses) in your Natal Chart have Aries on the cusp? These are areas of life where you feel unusual focus now, where you want to launch new projects and get life moving again after the long dormancy of winter ... and the somnolent moods of Pisces. Here you find the assertiveness, ambition and self-confidence you need to step out,
* 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. Fire element is the quality associated with leadership issues, ambitions based on personal charisma, a fondness for seizing the initiative when choosing to act, and a reputation for showing enthusiasm and even zealotry

What IS a Rising Sign? ---> Red is an Aries color ---> When you have Aries Rising ... ---> With Aries Rising, you are assertive and spontaneous in meeting life. Your manner is frank and outgoing.

There is tremendous power in this position, showing you can overcome formidable obstacles in pursuing your personal goal
* Your Aries House -- The Starting Point -- Where Action Begins ---> The starting point of life ---> The house in your Natal Chart with Aries on the cusp is the starting point for your life's action. It's where things begin. When you're ready to launch new ventures or start new interests, this is the first place you look for motive and inspiration. You serve the needs of this life area with your energy and physical work. The results, profits and gains from what you accomplish in the Natal House where Mars is located feed the interests of your Aries house. This is how you were designed to operate.
Aries and Relationships
* How to Get Along with Aries ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign.---> Just don't ---> There's one sure way to get along with Aries -- don't get in his way. Aries is not patient. Those four words are a masterpiece of understatement. Aries hates delays. He hates excuses -- about why something wasn't done ... or can't be done ... or won't be done. In fact, he may take that as a challenge to show the speaker just how wrong he is.) Aries hates to be bored. He hates restrictions ... and above all, he hates standing around just wasting time.
Practical Applications of Aries
* How to Use Your Aries Energy Wisely ---> Aries' symbol is the ram. ---> We all have it ---> No matter what your Sun Sign, your personality contains Aries energy. Astrologers know we all contain every energy found in the Zodiac to a greater or lesser degree. It's what makes each individual complex and complete. And it's why Astrology works ... when you understand what it is saying about you, and why it doesn't ... when you don't.
* When You Are Using Your Aries Energy Wisely ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign ---> Using physical energy -- First of all, you make the distinction between self-assertion and aggression, between being self-reliant and being a bully. One is good. The other is not. When using your Aries energy wisely, you take care of yourself and your interests, but you do not hurt other people or allow them to hurt you.
* Why is Aries Important? ---> Aries' symbol is the ram. ---> We all have Aries in our character ---> Each of us have Aries energy expressing somewhere in our lives. True, if you don't have a planet in Aries or a major placement, like the Ascendant, in Aries, your Aries energy is indirect, possibly confined only to the affairs of the house that has Aries on the cusp.
Mars / Aries
* Mars / Aries Person -- Aries Signatures in a Horoscope ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color. ---> Combinations of Mars / Aries energy --Mars / Aries energy can be seen in a number of different patterns or placements in a person's Natal Chart. All the following combinations give the Mars / Aries energy of spunky independence and self-assertive ambition to anyone who owns them, but some are not obvious to the non-astrologer.
* Mars: Ruler of Aries -- Symbol of Your Active, Assertive, Energetic Self ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color! ---> Mars shows passion, initiative and self-assertion. ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion ....
