Aries Horoscopes

What’s your horoscope, Aries?

Two words define Aries: “I am” and a lot of your conversations begin with “I”! You are forceful and energetic and it can be hard to keep up with you.

So who are you really, Aries? What’s your best colour? What’s your lucky number? Who are you compatible with?

You may not believe in astrology or “the stars” but I am willing to bet that you at least know what your Zodiac sign is!

This page gives the background to the starsign of Aries, but if you want to delve deeper and plot your Aries birth chart then check out this Astrology Guide Astrology for Yourself: How to Understand And Interpret Your Own Birth Chart that will help you do just that.

The ancient science of astrology, unlike the modern sciences of biology, physics and chemistry, puts the individual at the centre of the universe. Astrology is a science based on the belief that the makeup, or “character” of each indivdual is determined at the moment of birth.

Astrologers believe that by analysing one’s natal or birth chart it is possible to determine an individual’s purpose in life, their talents, as well as positive and negative characteristics.

So, who are you Aries and what do the stars have in store for you?

STOP! Are you SURE you are an Aries?

Born on the cusp?

If you were born on the day the Sun moved into a new sign then you were born “on the cusp”. For example in the year I was born the sun moved into the next star sign, just two hours before my birth. Are you absolutely sure that you are an Aries? Or are you really a Pisces or a Taurus?

If you were born “on the cusp”, (ie around the 20th March or 20th April) see this article about Cusp Signs to check exactly which star sign the sun was in on the day you were born.

Introducing Aries – “I am”

March 20 – April 20

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and its symbol (or glyph) represents the Ram, the leader of the flock.
In Western Astrology, Aries is considered to be a “masculine”, positive and extrovert sign, along with the other five odd-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Aries is also the first sign of spring, the season of new beginnings, enterprise and energy.

The Story of Aries the Ram

The constellation of Aries

The Zodiac sign of Aries was named for the constellation of the same name, which in Greek tradition is also called “The Ram”. The story associated with this constellation is that of the golden ram that rescued Phrixus, taking him to the land of Colchis.

In Greek mythology, Phrixus was the son of Athamus, king of Boiotia, and Nephele, the Goddess of the Clouds. Phrixus and his twin sister Helle were hated by their stepmother, Ino, who plotted to get rid of the twins by roasting all of Boiotia’s crop seeds so they would not grow.

Frightened of famine the farmers consulted the local oracle for assistance. Ino bribed them to lie and tell the others that the oracle required the sacrifice of Phrixus and Helle.

Before they could be killed Phrixus and Helle were rescued by a flying ram with a golden fleece, that was sent by Nephele, their natural mother. During their flight Helle fell off the ram and drowned in the sea then known as the Dardanelles, which was renamed the Hellespont.

Her brother survived the journey to Colchis, where King Aeëtes, the son of the Sun God Helios, took him in and treated him kindly, giving Phrixus his daughter, Chalciope, in marriage. In gratitude, Phrixus sacrificed the ram to Zeus and gave the king the golden fleece of the ram, which Aeëtes hung in a tree in the holy grove of Ares.

Phrixus and Chalciope had four sons, who later joined forces with the Argonauts. The oldest was Argos, who built the ship the Argo.

The Elements

Aries is a Fire Sign

The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.

The Element of Aries is “Fire” which it shares and is compatible with Sagittarius and Leo.

The Element of Fire symbolises the primitive urge to live and the creative inspiration to find a suitable outlet for one’s energy. It represents enthusiasm, faith, spontaneity, intuition and idealism.

The Qualities of Aries

The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable and signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.

The Quality relates to the basic temperment of an individual, who will have a prevailing identifying characteristic that is rarely altered through life – nor does it need to be. Each of these Qualities views the world very differently, their reactions to stimuli are different so that any action they take will be different too.

The Quality of Aries is “Cardinal”

A “cardinal sign” (also called by older astrologers a moveable sign) is a sign of the zodiac that initiates a change of temperate zone season when the Sun makes its annual passage into them.

The word “cardinal” originates from the Latin word for “hinge,” and these signs are considered forceful and dynamic, initiating action and providing leadership.

However, on the other hand, cardinal signs can be controlling, inconsiderate, stubborn, selfish and demanding, as they are sure that their way is best and that others should follow.

Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are also Cardinal signs and are therefore less likely to be compatible with Aries.

The positive side of Aries

What’s to like about Aries?

Arians are forceful and possess huge energy. If they fail at anything they will simply pick themselves up and start all over again. They have good communication skills and find it easy to join in conversations and take them over!

Their curiosity urges them on. Those born under the starsign of Aries have leadership potential.

The negative side of Aries

What’s to loathe about Aries?

Arians can be very impatient when situations and others involved in them do not proceed as quickly as they would wish. They can resent others in authority, despite wanting to be leaders themselves.

Aries Mugs

Arians put their own survival above everyone else and a lot of their conversations can begin with “I”, which can annoy people. Arians need to appreciate that other people matter as well.

Aries Careers

What would you be good at Aries?

Arians make good athletes and climbers, doctors, explorers. By exploration this can mean new ideas as well as uncharted territory, which these days can involve travelling into space!

Arians also make good members of the armed services (army, navy and airforce) and also leaders in politics and industry.

Possible medical weaknesses of Aries

Aries governs the head and brain

Arians can be prone to headaches, particularly migraines, sunstroke, neuralgia and depression.

Indigestion and nervous disorders are also a threat and the Arian rashness, impetuosness and sometimes over-the-top physical commitment can make them accident and injury prone.

Aries Lucky Number is 9

(also known as The Novena)

Aries shares the Lucky Number 9 with Scorpio. Nine is one of the three mystical numbers (the others being three and five).

The Number 9 represents:

society and completion
mankind
philanthropy
charity
social issues
government
universal love,
giving
the brotherhood of man
neighbourhood
clubs
organizations
institutions
the common good

Aries lucky colour: Red

The colour associated with the planet Mars

The lucky colour for Aries is crimson or deep red and is the colour associated with its ruling planet Mars. Red has a stimulating effect, but the Arian needs to be careful because it can be irritating to the eye.

Red should never be worn by an Arian trying to patch up a quarrel or when tact or a compromise is needed. However, if faced with a situation that demands courage and energy, the colour red can act like a charm.

Red represents life and vitality and has always been the symbol of love, fire, blood and infatuation. Basically, it represents strong emotions rather than cerebral thinking.

Positive qualities of red: Physical courage; strength; warmth; energy; basic survival; stimulation; masculinity; excitement

Negative qualities of red: Defiance; aggression; visual Impact; strain

Arians prefer bold and bright colours which have assertive undertones. In addition to red, black is a particular favourite with its influence of power but Arians also tend to respond well to the calming coulor of indigo, which helps calm their exuberant fieriness.

Other favourable colours: Pink, orange, white, yellow, royal blue, navy blue, bright brown and variegated colours

Unfavorable colours: green, grey, faded colours

Diamonds are the lucky gem for Aries

The Starstone for Aries

The lucky gem for Arians born in March is the bloodstone, which they share with Pisceans born in March.

The lucky gem for Arians born in April is the diamond, which they share with Taureans born in April.

Aries on holiday

Suggested vacation for Aries

Arians are energetic souls, who enjoy being in control so if they are driving to the mountains or elsewhere they need to be the one behind the wheel. When they do arrive at their destination they want to test their rugged and competitive skills at rock-climbing or sky-diving.

Aries Compatibility

Are you in love Aries?

How is it working? What do the stars have in store for you?

Aries men and women radiate charm and can be hard to resist. Arians frequently treat love as a game and the opposite sex as an opponent to be conquered. They thrive in the perfect relationship, becoming more loving, understanding and sensuous.

But what star signs are the most compatible for Aries? Who makes the best partners for these very strong characters?

HOW TO CATCH AND KEEP AN ARIES MAN

ARIES MAN

Peter Pan with a temper!

Forceful, direct, adventurous and virile, Aries Man is often hard to resist. He seems to generate excitement wherever he goes but he can be fickle.

Aries Man enjoys the chase and loves to sweep a woman off her feet. Once he has captured a heart he may lose interest and move on to his next conquest.

The relationship may not last long, but while it does, you will have a man filled with energy, adventure, excitement and passion. Some Astrologers liken Aries Man to a grown up version of Peter Pan – but Peter Pan did not have a temper!

Aries man is always wanting to be doing something and loves to try out new things as well. However, he can be prone to tantrums as a contrast to being considerate and generous with his time and money.

Life with Aries man can be a rollercoaster but when he loves you then he will love you with a fiercely passionate love, which he will expect in return. If he does not get it, then you will see an immature sulky, grumpy, foot-stamping Aries man.

Aries man loves his freedom and will respect yours. But if you are the possessive type, then this relationship will not work. Once he decides he loves you then you will never have to worry about your Aries Man being unfaithful, neither will he flirt with anyone else. He will always make sure you are well looked after and will be your partner for life.

That is assuming that you have the energy to keep up with him!

ARIES WOMAN

Aries woman likes to be in charge

Aries Woman PosterAries Woman can be very domineering and any partner who accepts this, can expect her to try to change him. She will have very definite ideas about what will make the man of her dreams and she will go all out to make you fit that mould. One of the strongest and most forceful women in the Zodiac, Aries woman can be very determined to get her way.

An Aries Woman can be very faithful, when in love but beware her jealousy and possessive tendencies. Insecurity is not the cause of this jealousy, it is her need to be Number 1 in her man’s life. If her partner is faithful she will be loyal but, anyone who “plays away” can expect the same in return.

When she feels loved, Aries Woman is understanding and supportive but make her feel abandoned and she can be shrill and demanding.

What Aries Woman really wants is a long-term relationship. Loving and passionate, she enjoys sharing her life with another. She is someone who should not be neglected or ignored.

What Zodiac signs make ideal partners for Aries?

Which star signs are the most compatible with Aries?

Aries is compatible with Gemini as both love to talk and neither sign is reserved.

Aries and Leo are both romantic, which makes for a good combination.

Aries likes to be in control and Pisces like to be cared for, so this works well.

Aries is probably best paired with Sagittarius as they have the perfect temperament for each other.

Star Signs that are incompatible with Aries

These Zodiac signs are NOT a good match for Aries

Aries should avoid relationships with Cancerians, Virgos, Librans and Scorpios.

At first there can be a very strong attraction between Aries and Cancer, but once the initial passion dies down, there is not much left to keep them together.

A reserved Virgo may find bold Aries attractive to start with but their emotional needs are so dissimilar that there could be trouble on the horizon.

In the short term Aries and Libra may do OK, but the energy of Aries may be too much for idealistic Libra, which may lead to disillusionment. A fling may be fun but not marriage.

Both Aries and Scorpio enjoy action and have great physical energy. The problems are caused by both signs being independent and needing to control.

The Perfect Aries Date

Where to take an Aries

Aries love anything adventurous, so white water rafting, skydiving, or bungee jumping would suit them just fine. However, they also like to think of themselves intellectuals, so if you want to start out a bit slower, take them to the theatre, a concert, an art museum, or even a political rally.

Aries love sports, so the majority of sporting events will appeal. Be prepared though – Aries have lots of energy, so whatever you do, you need to be prepared to keep up with them.
