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.
The essence of this character is confident, positive, ambitious, energetic, and full of initiative, but the powerful secondary personality, still firmly rooted in Karmic history and experience, is spiritual, intuitive, artistic, sensitive, and often self-sacrificing.

The Aries-from-Pisces Cusp-Born Person
Points of Interest About This Combination
In Astrology, the place where two Zodiac signs intersect is called a "cusp" ... a word that literally means "edge." The sign change from one to the next occurs at a distinct point in time, although that actual moment varies from year to year. Still the five days before a sign change and the five days after define what Astrologers call "cusp-born" people ... people born near the time of a Zodiac sign change. That's what it means to be "born on the cusp."
In astrology, as in much of nature, when a change is underway it is more apt to happen gradually ... one condition shading into another, rather than there being a definite break between the old situation and the new one. Even in life, sudden, dramatic changes will, in retrospect, show evidence of their arrival ahead of time, indications that the change is happening -- or on its way -- much more often than they will show up '"like a bolt from the blue."
People born "on the cusp" of a point where the Sun changes from one sign to another in the Zodiac will show this "blending of qualities" between one sign and the next directly in their personalities and often in ways that can look and feel fairly schizophrenic. Quite literally, these complex souls will not be categorically one sign or the other, but a blending of both signs involved.
Here in the days around the 16th to the 25th of March every year, we're dealing with the sign change from the quiet, spiritual character of Pisces to the dynamic, energetic and impatient character of Aries. Many times the transition between one Zodiac sign and another shows a dramatic change, even a contradiction in character here at the junction. That change from Pisces to Aries is especially stark.

The saintly souls of the Zodiac
Pisces souls are extraordinary people, often unappreciated and misunderstood for the crucial contribution they make to the reality where we all reside. In its uncorrupted state, the energy of Pisces is so gentle, non-resistant, unassertive, and pliant, other signs mistake Pisces' peaceful nature for weakness and even apathy.
It can also be easily overwhelmed by other qualities present in a Pisces personality -- making it hard to see the soft, sensitive, esoteric spirit that contains and expresses this Pisces energy.

Born with the Sun in Aries
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. Whoever first said, "Lead, follow or get out of the way," was an Aries through and through. (Only what he meant was "I'm gonna lead. The rest of you follow. And God help whoever doesn't get out of the way.")
Aries people go directly for their goals. They don't mean to be offensive; it just happens that way sometimes. And they don't pour much oil on troubled waters when they tell complainers, "I've got places to go and things to do. Build a bridge -- and get over it."
