If you were born between March 21 and April 19, yours is the sign of the ram, Aries. This has come to be a symbol of masculinity and male fertility, but also courage, boldness, and independence.
In the symbolism of the sign, the horns are meant to symbolize something called the cornucopia. That is also known as the horn of plenty, which is signifying prosperity.
As the first sign in the zodiac wheel, these people are usually on the forefront of everything. Always the initiator, they plow through challenges as if it were fun to them. If an Aries native sets their mind to something, it’s going to happen.
This energetic, active sign usually indicates someone who is fairly blunt, to the point and not one to over complicate things if they can help it.
Aries is a cardinal sign, as well as a fire sign
The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. They are usually the signs that kick off each new season. They may all hold a bit of a restless nature, but also can be strong leaders.
In addition to this, throw ambition and self-motivated into the mix and you might find a forceful tempest in your midst. Because Aries is also a fire sign, it is their role in life to sort of project themselves out into society by way of their own experiences and explorations.
They hold self-expression very dear and will always push the envelope.
Though Aries rules both the face and head – on the whole, it’s a very physical sign. Those born under areas are more apt towards athleticism, and if they’re not into sports – well, they tend to know how to get the things they want and need using their bodies. (That’s not quite as naughty as it sounds – hard work is also something they’re not afraid of. But sex? Aries? Yow. That, too.)
Ruled by Mars, they aren’t going to be into the bigger, more dramatic, drawn out emotional displays, nor are they really going to be into long range planning. They’re very here and now, and can be incredibly impatient.
However, the flip side of that coin is, they are also extremely innovative and not afraid to leap into the unknown.
How can the rest of us use the sun in Aries?
When the Sun is in Aries, the energy can be a little less drab – and of course, if you live above the equator, you know: Aries marks the beginning of Springtime for many of us. Below the equator, that’s autumn.
Both involve periods of great change, transition, and are more action seasons. Aries actually rules the spring season, regardless, but, if you’re another sign you might find that when the Sun is in Aries, you feel a little more impulsive.
A little more ready to dare to be great. To try something new. Start shit. Think about the Aries people you know, and now imagine you can tap into that. Because you can. When the Sun is in Aries, you can be braver, more innovative, and have the courage to make some big changes, explore new frontiers, and conquer some old situations or habits.
Aries woman – The essence of fire
“She’s making me crazy, but I can’t get enough of her! She was born between March 21 and April 19- an Aries woman, right? What do I do? Wait! Hold that thought! I think she’s setting my car on fire!”
May I first suggest, holding on to your butt? Or rather, you can probably expect your Aries woman to do it for you. If she’s not slapping you soundly on one of those cheeks. One thing an Aries woman is not shy about are her affections.
You don’t have to second guess with them – they’re pretty out there and open with how much they adore you – but also, what they do not adore about you.
An Aries woman is the typical Alpha Female in all her glory. She’s not a Queen like a Leo woman might be, oh no! An Aries woman is an out and out Goddess and she tends to know it.
Don’t think that means you can be somewhat groveling and win her – because that isn’t the way. She doesn’t want subjects, she wants a strong man to stand right by her side through every battle she leaps headlong into. Like I said, hold on to your butt.
Aries women are remarkably playful, energetic and charming to a fault. Their often candid way of expressing themselves can be pretty enchanting for those who have long tired of game playing, but that doesn’t mean she’s not.
It just means she’s better and more straight forward with it than others may be.
These fire signed female forces are passionate and more often will be the one making the moves. She wants a partner who will be strong enough to realize that she doesn’t always want to be the first to call the shots, but who can balance a good back and forth, instead.
Nobody likes having to be the strong one all the time, and they certainly don’t care much for always having to initiate sex or other things. He needs to match her, strength for strength, or she may lose interest.
I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the old Star Trek, the Next Generation series, but remember the Klingon’s’ mating ritual? They fought their potential suitors to see who would be strong enough to be the mate-fighting as foreplay is definitely the Aries way.
Absolutely unmatched in both the fighting and the makeup sex: they are spectacularly interesting women to encounter, let alone date.
If you think it’s all arguing and sex, you’d be wrong there, too. Aries women are typically very optimistic and well known for being defenders and protectors of others. Momma Bear to the world, if she believes in something, it will be pursued relentlessly and taken care of.
She will be one of the most loyal friends, a strong partner that doesn’t need to be babied constantly, and someone who can challenge anyone to be their very best.
If you want to get along better, meet her on her level. Respectfully refuse to back down and communicate until a compromise can be reached- and believe that she is well capable of that. She will need to see that you are able to stand by your words, but more than that, that you’re willing to do more than talk.
Though many try to be like an Aries woman, one thing you can be sure of is this: there’s none other like them.
Aries men – Astrology’s bad boys
“The man I want was born between March 21 and April 19, so, like, I think he’s an Aries or something? What do I do?”
Oh, boy. Are you looking to catch an Aries man? I applaud your bravery. I do. These men are quite interesting- and they almost always have these huge plans and dreams for exactly the type of relationship they are looking for.
And if you happen to be that ideal- look out, because this one’s a keeper. However, it may become pretty apparent early on if you’re the One for him. You’ve got to understand, there are two things and Aries man does very, very well.
One is being the most faithful and committed lover you will ever have. These passionate men will go to the ends of the earth, seeking out the perfect ideal they have in their heads and when they find someone who fits? It’s almost magical.
The problem comes in with the other thing they are very good at :Aries men seriously love sex.
The thing is, they’re just not that great at dating. They don’t tend to be patient enough to really woo someone- though, they almost naturally do, just by being who they are. There’s a magnetism there in their authenticity that is irresistible and outright dangerous.
Because if you aren’t the one- but you’re killer in bed? He might stick around a while, but, he might also be sticking around awhile elsewhere. Generally speaking, he’ll even tell you this. Some, not all, have certain aspects in their charts that might make them a bit on the less than the truthful side, but typically, if you’re wondering if he’s committed- he isn’t.
He will most definitely let you know. They’re not really big on the hints and subtlety, these guys.
Aries men are so good at being bad. So very good. That tends to make them extremely magnetic- and for most Aries men, to love is to conquer. They are ruled by Mars, the God of War- not sure why you’d imagine it to be any other way with a guy like that.
They tend to approach pretty much anything like they’re charging into battle, and more frustrating? They usually win. Their weapons of choice when it comes to the war of love? Flashing an irresistible smile- dimples just so, batting eyelashes above eyes you know are anything but innocent with a “Who, me?” look and flirting like there’s no tomorrow.
Now, you might think I’m ragging on Aries men or that I perhaps have a negative opinion of their sexual proclivities. Far from it. I actually enjoy Aries men- as frequently as I possibly can. (I am in fact, a Capricorn lady. Ain’t no shame in that horny goatness and oh, we can appreciate it in others.)
A well balanced Aries man has no shame in his sexual appetite, nor will he pretend that a purely sexual relationship goes beyond that. The mistake that all too many women make with these guys is that they believe they’re that ideal partner he’s been after.
The problem is, as I said: if he hasn’t let you know, you probably aren’t. Aries are not shy about taking what they feel is theirs. At all. They will protect those they love to their dying breath and become ferocious about it- but, you’ve got to get there, first.
For him, the thrill of the hunt is all- so, also don’t imagine that indulging in the carnal delights he loves will bring that about. Not by itself, it won’t. What happens more often than not is an intense, passionate romantic affair- that fizzles, fades, and is gone with the wind. (By way of a side note- Aries men and wind? Oh boy. They’re good at that, too.)
If you do find yourself in the position of being that perfect mate- you might be surprised to find that this is one of the most loyal, strong, and sensitive men you can possibly hope to wind up with. Once they commit, it is definitely for keeps.
So what’s an Aries’ male’s perfect partner? Someone who is every bit as strong as he is. Someone who will not hesitate to stand and meet him eye to eye, but who will also be able to understand that beneath all that brash, tough talk- there’s a deeply sensitive man who will go to hell and back for those he loves most.
There’s so much more to an Aries man that you should now. And if you’re serious about putting him under your spell, I suggest you to read Anna Kovach’s step-by-step guide called Aries Man Secrets. If anything helped me get my Aries man to commit, it’s her amazing book!
