Introducing Aries – “I am”

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.
And of course it was Jason who sailed the Argo in search of the famed Golden Fleece.

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 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 temperament 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.
The positive side of Aries
Arians are forceful and possess huge energy. Their curiosity also urges them on.
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!
Those born under the starsign of Aries have leadership potential.
Aries Negative Traits
What’s to dislike 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.
Arians put their own survival above everyone else and a lot of their conversations can begin with “I”, which can annoy people.
Those born under the Zodiac Sign of Aries need to appreciate that other people matter as well!
What is Aries good at?
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!
Aries 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.
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).

society and completion
the brotherhood of man

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 colour 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
