Aries (Symbol: ♈) are straightforward people who are helpful, factual, and strong-willed. Likened to warriors, Aries people handle the difficulties of life with great strength. They are born to be active and are quite fierce. Before others know if they should take on the task, Aries is already doing it.

Aries' strength comes from their capacity to bring talent and organization to life. Many people think of them as uncomplicated due to their innate and primal drive . High emotions are quite foreign to them and may have them wondering "why the water works?". However, their high passions lend them to be rather straight to the point with a flair of charisma, and quite stable in love. In every situation, they are the motor, there is no standstill for this zodiac sign!


Although all fire signs show leading qualities (such as fire signs  LeoSagittarius ), Aries tend to involve themselves in situations where they can fight side by side with their people. They are very helpful and will be happy to lend a hand if you need something from them. However, Aries people at times can be stubborn, defiant, impatient, bossy, and a little insensitive. Known for being hot headed, they do need to manage their tempers. Nevertheless, they are truly here for you and on your side, cheerleading you on.

Even those who may not get along with them are impressed by their ambitious approach to life. Their drive is unrivaled. However, you must accept Aries people as they are, their self-assured nature doesn't lend them to change often or for others. 

Aries is the first sign in the astrological zodiac . It stands for the beginning of spring , the awakening of nature and birth. In the astrological symbol, the upright horns are easily recognizable to display these signs fierce disposition. 

They represent struggle and strength . Some astrologers also interpret the signs as a rune, representing a human who stretches both arms far from himself, symbolizing the beginning of life.
