The Characteristics of those born on
the Cusp of Aries and Taurus
Cusp dates: April 15 to April 24
Known as: The Cusp of Power
If you were born between April 15 and April 18, you are more of an Aries, with a bit of Taurus thrown in. True Aries-Taurus Cuspers will have birthdays on April 19 or 20. Those born between April 21 and 24, will be Taurus with Aries influence.
The Element of Aries is Fire and Taurus is Earth. Will Taurus douse the Flames of Aries?
Those born on the Cusp of Aries and Taurus are certainly a force to be reckoned with. They are natural leaders, taking charge in the home and at work due to the successful combination of energy from both signs. Aries is compulsive and has an energy, which drives them forward, but they can become bored with a project before it is finished.
This is tempered by the more practical side of Taurus, who will take care of the fine details and is more likely to see the project through. When it comes to achieving their goals, this is one of the strongest combinations of starsigns because they can be so darn persistent.
But this energy can come with negative consequences. Aries and Taurus combined can be forceful and this can result in them being too driven and opinionated. OK, so they probably know they are right, but the Aries-Taurus can be very blunt and they need to make allowances for others’ views and feelings.
Those born on the Aries and Taurus cusp have the potential for great satisfaction in life, thanks to the great action, that ever on the go Aries brings to the mix and the great will and strength of Taurus.
Please note the “Cusp Dates” given above may vary from this in some years
Are you incompatible with Aries according to the Aries Compatibility Chart?
Find out how to prove the Astrologers wrong!
Only an in-depth (and often very expensive) Astrological Analysis will properly assess our compatibility with another Birth Sign.
All those planets whizzing around all the Zodiac Houses, makes for a very complicated situation. However, it is not just the position of the Sun that determines whether or not we are compatible with another Zodiac Sign. The positions of all the other Planets, in both you and your partner’s birth charts, also come into play.
And of course the the position of the Moon plays a very important part too. The Moon also influences the Astrology personality traits of all the star signs.
However, what if you have your Birth Chart interpreted by an expert Astrologer and it is concluded that you don’t have a hope in heck of making it work with an Aries?
Heck! Why not give it a go anyway?

The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Pisces and Aries
Cusp dates: March 19 to March 23
Known as: The Cusp of Rebirth
At first glance, you would be excused for wondering how the combination of Pisces and Aries Sun signs could possibly work, without causing massive internal conflict, but somehow it does. Combine the dreamy mindset of Pisces, who is strongly intuitive, with the get up and go of Aries and you have someone who knows what they want and how to get it – now!
This Zodiac combination is dedicated, assertive and likes to get things going. As a result they are strong leaders. This is helped by the fact that they know how to push limits and take others along with them.
But they have to be careful they don’t rub people up the wrong way, with their impatience, directness and total conviction that they are always right. They need to work on their social skills, particularly developing more patience with others and not expecting everyone to keep up with their pace. They also need to keep their ego in check and understand that life is not just about what they want or think is right.
If a project takes time to complete there’s a danger that Pisces/Aries will become bored and lose interest before the project is completed. However, despite their natural impatience, they can be compassionate, sensitive and sympathetic to others and imaginative. They love new projects and their enthusiasm and the need for challenge will cause them to jump in immediately, looking to see if they can push beyond normal limitations.
Pisces/Aries are sometimes enigmatic, hiding their real selves. They are thoughtful and some are blessed with exceptional musical talent. In their leisure time, this Cusp sign will play as hard (and competitively) as they work at the office.
They enjoy venting their natural aggression and emotional stress in sports, both individual and team.
The greatest strength of the Pisces and Aries Zodiac Combination is in their compassion, energy, initiative and courage. Although they can be ego-centric, their natural sensitivity makes them one of the most understanding of the Cusp Signs.
Please note: The Cusp Dates given above are just a general range and may vary depending upon the year of birth.
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.

Are You In Love With An Aries Man?
Is Aries Man Hard To Understand?
As a Gemini, I get on pretty well with Aries men and even had a short fling with one once! However, The Ram is a pretty complex character and is strong to the point of selfish. He knows what he wants and he likes to get it.
Born on the Cusp with Taurus, the Bull in me clashed with the Ram and it was soon over. However, had I been really smitten with this Aries Male, had it been published at the time, then I have no doubt that this book would have helped me out.
Using her own experiences, and that of her friends, Astrologer Anna Kovach shares the secrets to understanding Aries Man and, if your heart is set on him, she will show you how to not only catch him, but keep him.
Aries Man is usually a one woman man and once he is yours, he will stay yours!
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 ruling planet of Aries
Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, which represents energy, sexual drive, anger, self-assertion and aggression.

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.
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.
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.
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
the brotherhood of man
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.
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 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.
