March 21 to April 19

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and marks the start of spring in the northern hemisphere. Following the long dormancy of winter, Aries is the thrust of life when the first shoots of the season come up.

There is often a bold, pioneering energy to Aries, always ready to try something new. But with Aries, the goal isn’t just to experience life. Aries wants to make something happen – although they rarely have a plan in place for how it will happen, and they definitely don’t have a plan B. ‘What for?’ says Aries!

What does it mean to be an Aries?

People born under this zodiac sign are ready to create, start projects, and make their own mark on the world. While there’s an abundance of passion to get things started, finishing things isn’t Aries’ strong suit.

Ruled by Mars, the Roman god of war, all Aries have a protective streak, willing to defend those who are vulnerable. At best, they can be courageous and heroic, and incredible leaders. These are people who can thrive under pressure, like entrepreneurs, coaches, athletes, emergency room physicians, and firefighters. Aries is also a sign that’s loaded with creative energy.

What is the personality of an Aries?

Aries are often confident and optimistic. They do like to win and can devote a lot of willpower into achieving their goals, but they can also bring out that same confidence in others. On the other hand, people with this zodiac sign have to be careful of being overconfident, even reckless. At times Aries can come off as prideful.

Who is Aries compatible with and who does Aries not get along with?

Aries and Libra make an enduring match – both are cardinal signs, and fiery Aries complements Libra’s harmonising air energy. Aries is also compatible with Leo and Sagittarius, although there can be too much ‘me’ energy in a partnership when there is more than one fire sign.

Aries may not get along well with Scorpio – Aries, the Ram can be headstrong, and Scorpio is one sign that’s not going to bend to anyone’s will. Emotional and intuitive Pisces and Cancer may also have a hard time with the abruptness and domineering Aries energy.

Are Aries affectionate? – Do Aries fall in love quickly?

Aries can be an affectionate sign. Mars is also a guardian of agriculture and known as the father of Rome. You’ll often get a sense of that protective, caring, even dedicated energy with Aries men and women. For those who are attracted to an Aries, keep in mind, they can move fast in love and then burn out quickly if bored.
