Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and people who fall under this category are born between and include  March 20 to April 19. Their symbol is the Ram and they are affiliated with the birthstones Topaz, Heliotrope, Aquamarine, Jasper and Diamond. 

They possess the element of fire which means they are very passionate, have an exploring tendency in them and they are feisty and don’t want to be held back! Their ruling planet is Mars which brings to them passion, aggression, ambition and animal instinct so obviously when combined with the famous fighter Ram they become unstoppable! Just remember when you see an Aries being argumentative or competitive you can see the influence Mars has over them!

Generally, an Aries can be described as someone who likes to pursue their dreams and passions and they are quite competitive and defensive hence it is not a good idea to come in between them and want they want. They are motivated by their animal instincts to be at the top and this powers them and their desires so be careful!

How Can I describe An Aries?

Self Confident.

Aries are extremely independent creatures who stick to their beliefs and ideas; they are very self confident and this gets them through their tough times as well. They are hence stubborn and will pursue what it is they desire because they believe they have the skills and capabilities to achieve what it is they want. Their self belief is what pushes them to challenge themselves and this confidence will stick even in tough or grim times.

These individuals oftentimes end up being the pioneer in things; they are confident about their ideas and skills and will use those to do things their own way rather than how others do it hence setting an example for others and proving their mastery or competence which is very satisfying considering they are so competitive.


Yes they are bold and will utter whatever they feel or think even to a high authority who has the power to override them and their ideas or beliefs but they will not stay quiet in the face of the enemy or what they consider wrong.

Aries are known for the bold steps they take – they will take up a project or commit to something which is indeed a mountain of a challenge but they are not scared nor do they hesitate because it is in them to take on big challenges. So don’t be surprised when your Aries friend ends up doing something too bold – trust in them and support them.


This is related to their ability of being bold and confident. They possess these traits which makes them brave and hence they do not back down when danger is lurking nearby or they are required to take some bold or bog steps. They are confident about their skills and resources and they have the innate tendency to take up challenges so these individuals are naturally brave and show it well to those around them!


People who are born in this time period under this zodiac sign are naturally creative either in their field of science and technology, the arts, in think tanks or as a musician. They are naturally gifted with a talent that they can polish into a skill which makes them stand out and become even more competitive – their creativity is what gets them out of tough situations and allows them to take on big challenges. It is as if their creativity serves their larger purpose of taking on the world and gaining victory in their quests.


Yes one bad trait an Aries can have is that they sometimes become selfish. They are so focused on what they want to achieve that they won’t stop at nothing and this may sometimes make them seem selfish. They will ensure their needs are fulfilled so that they can work and accomplish their tasks. They will try to stay in their own shell for days if their work is stuck and they won’t care about what others need not because they don’t care but they are too busy or stuck in their own matters.

Sometimes Aries need to look at the big picture and realize they need to work in breaks or they will overlook their own needs and those of their loved ones. Long term work is only accomplished when you work in a sustainable way or you will experience a burn out!

Anger Outbursts.

Yes it isn’t surprising is it? You must know someone who just gets angry all of a sudden and lets it all out right? Well Aries have this trait and it is possibly because of their animal instinct or the influence Mars has on them!

These creatures are very competitive and passionate;if anything comes in their way they will get angry and go on a rant about how hard they work and how someone or something messed it up! These people also are sensitive to criticism and do not know how to express themselves very well which makes them even more frustrated.

If you’re facing this, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a therapist or other mental health professional. You can find a therapist at BetterHelp who can help you learn how to cope and address it.


Like other signs, this one too is impatient! This may be because of Mars’ influence or the element of fire it possesses; nonetheless, Aries are quite impatient and want to see fast results. This will cause them to become cranky sometimes or even stressed. It may even add to the anger outbursts they experience especially if things are not going well.

As they are hardworking, they want to see the fruit of their efforts soon! Furthermore their passion and ambition to achieve their goals combined with their competitive nature usually results in someone who is not in the mood to wait. So next time you are with an Aries don’t get irritated when they get impatient or keep questioning what’s taking so long. That is how they are and you should try and calm them down but give them their space because you don’t want to make them angry. I wonder if Hulk was an Aries?


These signs are quite impulsive. Not only are they impatient but they don’t want to cause the wait themselves either. This is why you will notice they want to take quick decisions and not waste time. Even if this means not being sure of what they want. They greatly value time and obviously want to see their efforts in the form of accomplished goals so they will do everything in their might to make things happen. They are not the type that will sit down, take their time and think over things but instead they will move on to make a quick and hopeful right decision.
