Celebrating Aries
The 5 most distinctive / admirable traits of the sign

by Rebecca Brents

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. To Aries life is a place to have impact, a thing to manage ... and they revel at the prospect.

Arians hate to sit around doing nothing. They are easily bored and they can't stand a feeling of stagnation. If there is any way they can make progress, change something or set events in motion, they will find it. They hate inertia -- and waiting around for anything drives them nuts.

Aries is the sign of new beginnings. The world moves forward on the fuel of Aries energy. The very idea of novelty resonates with these people ... and they are always ready to get things moving and make things happen.

Spirit

Their competitive passion. Aries spirits love to win. They approach almost everything in life as a game or a contest. They love the sweet feeling of triumph. Victory is a joy like no other. But they want to win honestly -- not in come nasty, underhanded, skirt-the-rules end-run. Cheating -- even a little bit -- spoils everything.

Aries loves the competition that pushes everyone to be his best -- to perform at the top of his game, and that shows everyone how champions succeed, and how they can improve by following a good example. That's what it means to win.

Talents

Their candor. Aries is not subtle or understated -- and he doesn't beat around the bush. He is up-front, straight-forward and direct. Tact is not an issue with him. Nor is diplomacy. What you see is what you get -- whether you want it or not. On the other hand, you always know what he wants and where you stand with him. Sometimes this is a good thing.

If you somehow arrived late to the party and missed the announcements, he'll be happy to repeat them. He may even do this without you asking.

Even when you wish he'd kinda keep things to himself, there's a refreshing simplicity to Aries. When he does something, it's right out in the open. When he says something, he means it. You don't have to second-guess him on anything. Just watch ... and listen.

Character

Their courage. Aries isn't a sucker for lost causes or losing battles, but he won't shy away from one either. If they're based on or defending a principle he believes in, he'll step into the fray and may through sheer intensity turn things around. When he plays, he plays to win. He fights the same way, too. Don't underestimate him.

His boldness doesn't need strife or conflict to show itself. Any struggle, any enterprise that takes audacity and daring will do fine. He will start ventures whose very idea makes other signs quail. He takes risks. He stands firm. And he always does it with heart.

Contribution

Their initiative. Aries is the sign of new beginnings, new vitality, new life. At the starting gate is where Aries excels. (At the finish line ... maybe not so much.) But he looks around, sees what needs doing and does it -- what needs building, and breaks ground. He gets things started -- and that can be an enormous help.

He provides a framework, a vision and momentum . Others can pick up the project he launched and run with it. Often they have to, because he'll be on to something else if his interest flags ... or if he sees his skills are better invested elsewhere.

That first push though can get things started that otherwise would never have seen daylight. It's an essential step in the whole concept of improvement and progress. And Aries energy was built to step up, show leadership ... and tackle the job.

How to Use Your Aries Energy Wisely ---> Aries' symbol is the ram. -- 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.

5 Things to Know About Aries -- Dealing with the Zodiac's Pushiest Sign ---> 1 -- 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.

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.

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.

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.

The Fire Signs -- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ---> Fire Signs get things done -- The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius represent energy that is directly involved with action, leadership, personal charisma, and self-expression. These signs are self-confident, dramatic, self-promoting, exuberant, vivacious, and captivating.

Moon in Aries ---> Introduction -- The Moon travels completely around the Zodiac ... through all twelve signs every month -- a trip that lasts about 28.3 days each time. It makes this circle 13 times a year. It stays in each sign about 2 1/2 days. Everyone gets to enjoy a monthly Lunar homecoming as the Moon returns for a few days to the sign it occupied when they were born ... their Natal Moon sign. Astrologers call this a Lunar Return.

The New Moon in Aries -- Aries Energy in the Creative Process ---> We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. T.S.Elliot Four Quartets -- The place of new beginnings -- With the arrival of Aries we have indeed arrived again at the place of our beginnings, having traveled another cycle on the spiral of the creative process.

Born with the Sun in Aries -- The Aries Character ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Direct and to the point -- Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that.

Horoscopes When the Sun is in Aries -- March 20 to April 20 ---> If Your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in ... Aries -- Your theme song this month is ... "I gotta be me ... !!" So let the world hear that message. Let it see who you really are. Put your special qualities on display with all the flair and drama you can devise. Say what you believe. Be yourself.

Making the Most of the Sun in Aries ---> The spiral begins ... again -- The energy of The Sun in Aries is confident, brave, and assertive. Aries brings an energy full of initiative and self-assurance to the climate of everyday life. It is associated with new beginnings, making things happen and upsetting the status quo. Aries is the first step on a new spiral of creation and experience ... and it is eager to get underway.

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.

The Virtues and the Downside of the Sun in Aries ---> Were you born with the Sun in Aries? -- As someone born with the Sun in Aries, you were endowed from birth with the energy of the warrior, the pioneer, the entrepreneur and the trailblazer. You examine the world around you and see possibilities and potentials everywhere, for one of your strongest talents is your ability to shake up the status quo and bring new things to life.

When the Sun is in Aries ---> Welcome to Spring!! -- When the Sun is in Aries, people are aggressive, direct, and competitive. Attitudes are forceful and energetic. It's time to shake off the meditative moods that prevailed during Pisces, and kick some ... um ... aspirations. With the Sun in Aries, people are candid, blunt, emphatic and concerned with winning. They are assertive and ambitious.

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?

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.
