In zodiac signs, anyone born between March 21st and April 19th are Aries individuals because this is when the Aries planet, Mars, is occupied by the Sun. This is also the equinox, which marks the beginning of the new zodiac year. Aries is the first of the twelve signs of the zodiac and, as such, symbolizes renewal and fresh beginnings. Aries individuals, or Arians as they are called, are natural leaders, guiding the rest of the zodiac signs and leading the procession. The Aries animal is the ram and their color is red. Like most fire signs, Aries individuals are extroverts, or outgoing, and the sign is considered primarily masculine.
The Aries individual craves exciting adventures and new thrills. They are enthusiastic people and willing to lead others. More importantly, they are quite capable of leading successfully, assuming they can overcome their naïvely trusting nature in order to ensure the welfare of the group. Aries individuals usually have a wide range of life experiences, but can still be trusting, innocent, and unguarded. Because Aries is ruled by Mars, it is a very physical and masculine sign. Even women born under the Aries sign tend to be assertive, domineering, aggressive, and forceful.
People born under the Aries sign like to take initiative and hate to sit around and wait. They dislike planning and scheduling, preferring to take action and resolve issues without discussion. This can make them seem impulsive, spontaneous, foolhardy, and thoughtless, and can cause them to make rash decisions and create worse problems. Aries people love to be challenged and abhor being trapped or oppressed. Feeling stuck frequently leads Aries individuals to impulsively travel or take sudden, unplanned trips in search of adventure. They thrive on challenges and will sometimes create conflict in order to disrupt peace, which they perceive as dull and boring. They are in constant need of excitement and stimulation.
Because Aries is a fire sign, they are most compatible with other fire signs, like Sagittarius, Leo, and other Aries individuals. All of the fire signs are passionate and spirited, which can make for either volatile, explosive relationships or brilliantly energetic ones. Aries is the exact opposite of Libra, who desires to be consistent, constant, and unchanging. Libra wants an uncomplicated life without struggles or drama and desires a peaceful existence. To an Aries, this life would be boring and suffocating. An Aries wants to go places and experience as many things as possible, not sit around and be calm.
At their best, Aries are courageous, adventurous, confident, and dynamic. At their worst, they are thoughtless, argumentative, foolish, impulsive to a fault, selfish, and unnecessarily risky. Some of the more famous Aries individuals include Adolf Hitler, Charlie Chaplin, Leonard Nimoy, Harry Houdini, and Thomas Jefferson. An Aries individual is a born explorer and pioneer. They care for their followers and ensure that everyone is safe. They live life for adventure and love purposes that call them to action. When they are passionate about an issue, they fervently support their cause and work hard creating change. Unfortunately, sometimes their enthusiasm and energy are misguided. They have the capacity to be promiscuous and unfaithful in relationships, always looking for the next thrill or a more passionate fling.
People with Aries tattoos are probably believers in the zodiac, think that their sign represents themselves, or have the sign as a representation of a loved one who is an Aries individual. Aries tattoos can either be the Aries symbol or a representation of a ram, the Aries animal. Furthermore, the symbol or ram may be stylized or abstracted, depending upon the person's preference.
Displaying one's zodiac sign usually means that person feels their sign accurately portrays who they are as a person. By tattooing their sign, it lets other people know who they are, their interests, their preferences, and their passions. It connects them to other zodiac believes and expresses who they are through a simple, but dynamic and widely known, symbol.
