Aries

Your Most Likable Trait: COURAGE

Aries is the sign of the pioneer, the daredevil, and the person who just won t say  No . The Sun is in this first sign of the zodiac from March 21 to April 20 each year. The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal. In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own.

Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges. You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. Avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much.

Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life. You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions.

Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact. With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer’s or pioneer’s spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant “never say die” attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.

THE INNER YOU

You like to be in charge- you want to control your own projects and plans and not be under anyone else’s thumb. You have an intense drive to succeed and put a lot of pressure on yourself. Inside, you are filled with nervous energy and worry about how you’re going to handle everything. You have to be bored; you’re always looking for something different- new people and places that promise excitement and adventure. You have very little patience; you need to practice sticking things out. You’re also impatient with people who can’t resolve a problem. You believe in taking action. What you do have is great generosity and enthusiasm. And although you suffer from occasional self- doubt, you know that if you really want to do something, you can!

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

Your upbeat, magnetic personality pulls people toward you- you bring excitement into their lives. They envy your aggressiveness in meeting a challenge. Whatever the problem, you give the impression that you have an answer already. You’re also admired for your honesty you don’t gloss over difficulties. What people don’t like is your tendency toward bossiness and your deserved reputation for being sharp-tongued. They’re afraid to cross you i nan argument because they know you can cut them to the quick!

ARIES DECANS

Each Star sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual’s personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star sign can be very different. The Aries personality can differ according to which one of the Aries Decans an individual is born under:

If you were born between March 21 and March 30

Forever youthful with a young at heart attitude to life you playfully hop, skip and jump through life. You have a great sense of humour and find unusual things amusing. You also have the ability to laugh at yourself. The main flaws in this first Decan Aries personality are a tendency to brag and be boastful and smug. You have achieved much through your own endeavours and hard work and want the world to know it. You need to be the centre of attention and cannot bear to be just a face in a crowd.

If you were born between April 11 and April 20

The third of the Aries Decans is ruled by the planet Jupiter. The third Decan Aries personality is characterised by generosity, optimism and fun loving.

ARIES LOVE COMPATIBILITY

Aries and Aries Love Compatibility

Both enter with the intent of dominating the scenario. A passionate affair, but neither is content with playing the smaller role. In the sexual relationships between them the woman will dominate. The Aries-man will not stand for a long time the role of subordinated. Each of them will try to become the leader, and it will create the atmosphere of quarrel. As a result it means many problems in a bedroom. While this is definitely not the best union ever found, it can be made to work if both love each other enough to sacrifice a little of self and ego for the sake of the others feelings. Having a Birth Natal Charts made is almost a must for these two as the charts will show where the weakness and the strengths lie and enable them to work around and with these so that they will have a lasting and happy union.

Aries and Taurus Love Compatibility

Both are highly sensual, but Aries may be annoyed by the deliberate pace and unimaginative lovemaking of Taurus. Aries is a fun seeking person and will be trying to entertain him/herself constantly. The thrift of Taurus, who seldom makes anything spontaneously, will irritate. Taurus is good at making money but Aries is even better at spending it. The long haul can be hard going, though if they hang on long enough Aries will come to appreciate Taurus’s steadiness and dependability. If Taurus allows Aries to take a lead role, they will find out the new opportunities of sensual pleasure. Otherwise it will be difficult to get a desirable balance. The relationships are usually short term.

Aries and Gemini Love Compatibility

This union can turn out to be delightful, because both Aries and Gemini are tireless, active, inclined to search for a new knowledge. The Aries’ tendency to dominate is limited by an ingenuity of the Twins. The Twins have no sexual prejudices, but their energy can search for other ways of satisfaction. Gemini may seek extra stimulation, but is discreet about it. Both minds mesh well; Aries is dynamic and intelligent, Gemini is versatile and ingenious. Aries is likely to be the leader sexually, and Gemini delights in thinking up variations to keep Aries’s interest at a peak. The marriage can turn out to be quite successful.

Aries and Cancer Love  Compatibility

This combination is usually hard to match. The powerful sexual attraction is a usual thing for these two signs. A problem is that sexual attraction fades in the face of many temperamental differences. Aries leaps without looking; Cancer is cautious. Cancer loves hearth and home; Aries hates being tied down. Resentments build up and they argue over trifles. The discrepancy between their temperaments results in strengthening of incompatibility in bed. Astrological forecast for this couple is a stormy sea, and the marriage for certain will result in ship-wreck.

Aries and Leo Love Compatibility

Both Aries and Leo have aggressive temperaments. Both have got egos to burn and both like to lead. Aggressive Aries wouldn’t dream of taking second place, and kingly Leo needs constant admiration. This is particularly true if Aries will allow Leo to hold the center of the floor on occasions. Sharing the limelight is important on Leo’s part however, as Aries will feel the need to be on stage once in a while as well. Aries should flatter the Leo on his/her physical fit. Being so much alike sexually can be one of the important things that will keep them true to their commitments. Between the two of them, if one is loving and tactful with the other, meeting that persons emotional needs they can create a steady and long term union.

Aries and Virgo Love Compatibility

The bravery of the Aries will probably intrigue the imagination of shy, reserved Virgo for a time. However, their sexualities are so different, that they will have to be very patient in order to succeed. Aries’s passions are impulsive and direct. Virgo’s sexuality is more enigmatic and takes time to be revealed. In other areas Aries is full of exciting new plans and ideas, and insists on being boss. Virgo is critical and fussy, and likes things to be done the way Virgo wants. In case the charts are well aspected for these two it could work, but it will take a lot of effort on both sides. Otherwise the relationships will not be very pleasant and chances for a successful marriage are fifty / fifty.

Aries and Libra Love Compatibility

There is a powerful initial attraction between these two opposites, for in certain areas each supplies what the other lacks. Both are fond of of sexual pleasures, but the Aries probably will try to go too far too quickly. The Libra is inclined to idealize everything and can lose all illusions. Later Libra will look for someone less demanding, and Aries will bind someone more adoring. The physical connection is possible, but only temporarily. The marriage is very rare.

Aries and Scorpio Love Compatibility

The sex can turn out to be either stimulating or useless. There are two directions for the events to develop. Both the Aries, and the Scorpio possess a large amount of physical energy. They are both inclined to act. On the other hand, they are both independent and do not like being controlled. Long-term disagreements may destroy their phenomenal ability to share passion of and with each other. Usually this is an unstable partnership with a low ignition point.

Aries and Sagittarius Love Compatibility

The Mars-Jupiter duo are usually an ideal match for each other. Sagittarius is a perfect temperamental match for Aries. They are both active, spontaneous people who like socializing, have extravagant tastes in common, and enjoy the good life. The Aries’ optimism and his good sense of humor will help to overcome propensity of the Sagittarius to argue and will bring a funny side into the process of making love. The mutual understanding achieved in a bedroom, can create a favorable atmosphere for the relationships. This is certainly successful and recommended unuion. The marriage will be connected closely with a problem of physical satisfaction. In other words if they make it in the bedroom, they’ll make it everywhere else.

Aries and Capricorn Love Compatibility

Not a hopeful combination. Saturn, represented by Father Time, is the Capricorn’s standard bearer. The Aries is a restless,fiery, impulsive experimenter. The Capricorn is on the contrary sanctimonious person. Capricorn needs to dominate and so does Aries. Problems also crop up over money Aries is extravagant, Capricorn is security minded. Capricorn is a simple soul and Aries may be too overwhelming; Aries will take risks and enjoy them while the same risks will make Capricorn shudder. Some very violent quarrels can erupt due to this and the many other personality conflicts. Aries will not like the pessimistic gloom that Capricorn use to dampen the Aries enthusiasms. The Capricorn can prefer only one pose for making love or even the certain time. However, the Aries can take the initiative under his/her own control. If it takes place, a marriage is more preferable then a short connection.

Aries and Aquarius Love Compatibility

This connection will be stormy and will bring a lot of new emotions. There is a chance that the Aries will be dominating, as the Aquarius is more passive. The planet Uranus, which rules Aquarius, is unpredictable in its actions; therefore, Aquarians have a tendency to procrastinate too much to please the Arien “up and at ‘ em” characteristics. If both sides try a bit of tact & understanding, this great love affair could turn into something special. The Aries must be very tactful if he/she wants to deal with this extremely emotional dreamer. In bedroom Aquarius, while jealous and possessive of his/her partner, rarely overindulges activities as he/she has far more things to do and be engrossed in; therefore he/she is not as sexually active as Aries would like, and Aries will come to see Aquarius as a selfish lover. It is unusual, complete of events connection. In case of marriage a lot will be depending on how much they love each other.

Aries and Pisces Love Compatibility

Fire and water do not normally mix and that is why the Aries with Pisces love match could be a complex relationship. Aries is self-assured and vivacious; Pisces is somewhat shy and easily led. Aries likes to be dominant, Pisces likes having someone to lean on. The Aries will be intrigued by the behavior of Pisces in the bedroom. The active participation of the Aries will help Pisces get the shyness over. The realization of Pisces’ sexual wishes can cause strong excitation. Together they should have interesting and pleasant time. The opportunity of connection or a marriage is very high, if they manage to overcome the differences between their temperaments.
