Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, lasting from March 21 - April 20. Aries represents springtime, the burgeoning of new life and a great upsurge of energy and optimism. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars and this gives the sign its adventurous spirit. Blessed with abundant energy and drive, Arians have no time for laziness and make excellent motivators, whether at work or at home. Negative Arian characteristics arise out of their driven nature. They are childishly egocentric, extremely demanding and liable to throw tantrums if denied their own way.
They tend to be angular, slim people in early life, although
they may fill out later. Rarely graceful, they seem awkward
and ill at ease in their bodies, with particularly sharp elbows
While in love Arians can be possessive and jealous, yet they
are faithful and rather idealistic. Passionate and incurably
romantic, both male and female Arians tend towards joyous
sex and close relationships throughout their lives. Always
demanding, all Arians will expect, rather than give, support,
although they can be motivated to save a relationship if their
hearts are really engaged.
Arians are made for adventure, whether it takes the form of
dealing with `futures' on the money market or hacking their
way through the Amazonian forest. They direct their energy
and spirit of enterprise to sensible and useful ends in order
to further their ambition. They are ill at ease with boring
and repetitive jobs, and thrive on challenges. They can be
enterprising and excellent motivators of a workforce.
Arians are always in a tearing hurry and often have a fast
metabolism, which keeps their weight down. However, constant
speed has its drawbacks. They are prone to stress and suffer
from tension headaches, but they rarely follow a course of
medication or a treatment through to the end.
Arians need support and encouragement, so their ideal partner
belongs to one of the Earth signs, either Taurus or Virgo.
