The baby of the Zodiac is a fire sign; one who represents the beginning of all things. Ruled by Mars, Aries are fiery, dynamic and headstrong. It is not often they will be unsure of their opinion. After all, the phrase of Aries astrological sign is; I AM. As such, many Aries men and women pride themselves on being just as they are. They can tend to take offense when they are over-analysed, misunderstood or mistaken for what they are not. They will often have a small group of very close friends who encourage them to be their passionate selves and pursue their interests with them. That is not to say that an Aries doesn’t have many friends, as their upbeat disposition and outspoken nature means they make friends easily. Being the youngest sign in the Zodiac, concerning the first seven years of life; their life lessons are often to do with perception, gaining language, traveling and soaking in all they can from their environments. They see the world with awe and wonder. They can be very frank, open and honest; sometimes it is as if they possess no filter for what they internalise to what they externalise. Or rather, what they need to externalise.
As Mars is the God of War, Aries signs are often ready at a moments notice to pick up their swords and defend their honour. Their bravery is the stuff of legends and they make an excellent friend if you find yourself needing a confidence boost. They are loving and loyal but in no means needy. They are strong and independent people who love to inspire others to thrive on their own. Their topics of conversation are often widespread, but a common theme can be noble causes. As they are pure of heart, they wish the world to thrive and the people in it to prosper, sometimes their fire can take over and they will find themselves entering conversations just for the thrill of the argument.
Aries need to cool their fire from time to time to find a balance within. Sometimes learning to not always need to be right in an argument. If you are close to an Aries man/woman, it is important to remember when engaging in debate - they mean you no harm. It is in the fiery nature of an Aries to defend their opinions, no matter whom the conversation is with or what it is regarding. It is often a quick and sometimes therapeutic way for them to let off steam and release some of their fiery passion and is actually a necessary process for them from time to time. Otherwise, if all this fire were kept in – they might explode!
Although they love communicating, they can go great lengths of time without speaking a word. Taking everything in from the external, to better form a just and fair opinion. They make great leaders in business as well as proficient team players. They thrive while progressing quickly and efficiently, sometimes getting hot headed if people are holding them back from things they want or need to accomplish.
