Aries is the first sign in the zodiac wheel, which explains their innate nature to be leaders. Aries are heavily assertive and are the fieriest out of all the fire signs. They usually say what they feel and have excellent intuition. This means that at the end of an argument, they’re usually the right ones. They never take no for an answer. As a result, they are more argumentative than the rest of the other signs.
Aries is active. They’re quick and always on the go. They will do what they want when they want, so you can bet they’re impulsive. They don’t see any reason to hold back with what they think, so they’ll be quick to say whatever is on their mind. They can even be fast in a physical sense, moving and making decisions impulsively. Aries need to have a workout regimen, like running or martial arts. This can be a great way to get their engagement and Mars aggression out.
Aries are very masculine. Women in Aries are usually tomboys, interested in sports or more manly-associated activities. They’ll likely have more male friends than female friends. They have incredibly bold energy. They may have stronger communication than other signs. They hold strong confidence in their DNA. It’s not rare to hear them bragging about it, too, because they are loud people who are full of life. They want control over the room, usually in a positive way. Achievements mean everything to this Ram.
Aries are very playful. As the first sign, they have yet to learn any lessons in life that the other zodiacs have cycled through. As a result, they can sometimes act like children. And just like children, they are very hasty and reckless. Depending on who they interact with, this can be a good or a bad thing. While they bring fun, amazing energy, they also can be frustrating to control.
Aries is very cunning. They’re great at getting what they want. Not only do they know what they desire, but they want it done in a timely fashion. This sign feels very passionately. They care less about what they say and honor how they act and feel instead. So don’t be surprised when Aries’ words cut deep.
Those with Aries in the 1st house always think from their perspective alone without regard for others. They do whatever they want, at all costs. Aries can also project themselves onto other people. If they’re angry, they’ll see that in everyone else and expend their own trying to combat it. What they seek is what they find.
Most Aries are extroverts. They are loud to a tee. The class clown you remember in middle school? Ten out of ten, they probably were Aries. Of course, once they crack a joke, they’re always the ones laughing the loudest. But they still want to make sure everyone else is on the same page; after all, they want to be sure they’re received well in a group setting.
Aries strive to protect themselves at all costs. Therefore, they put up many layers to hide their sensitivity. This sign may have been burned badly in the past – especially in love. Their natural response is to cover their vulnerable spots with their anger. Anger is a sign of power to them. Aries is the type to choose fight over flight. They have an instinct for danger, and once they sense it, they quickly switch modes. This sign also believes crying is a sign of weakness, and that verbal or physical attacks show power and strength.
Aries, being the first sign in the zodiac, are the creators. They are initiators. Trust they’ll be the one to put their name down at a restaurant or ask someone out first. Their confidence comes from their innate belief that there are no obstacles in life. They can and will achieve anything they put their minds to. Luck has nothing to do with it, just pure action.
Aries consider themselves to be highly important. Other people must recognize how great they are. Aries partake in activities that deliberately show off their skills. They may seem boastful within these areas. Sometimes it can be compensated for the validation they’ve yet to receive. They must speak it into fruition. Above all, these rams want to be respected.
A lot of people are attracted to Aries because they own their life. They have a confidence others want to emulate. But Aries is very controlling. They don’t want to be told what to do. Aries honor their masculine energy by being the chasers. Unlike most, they don’t always want people to come to them. They take on the active role of getting what they want. This can be a fun and enjoyable game for them.
It’s not unusual for the Ram sign to struggle taking criticism well. At first glance, they seem very quick and impatient. They’re most likely to be stubborn with an “I can do it” attitude. It takes strength to handle an Aries. They can be hotheaded and may not recognize their flaws. Their love can be misunderstood because they show it more bluntly than others. They want to help others and may not go about doing it the right way. They put themselves first and prioritize themselves. They understand that success can be achieved best in this way.
They may seem emotionally detached sometimes. They want to protect their emotions at all times. Being the boss of their own life is essential to them. An Aries will never tell you how they’re feeling, but it may be easy to see through their exterior. If you approach them about this in the wrong way, prepare for a blow-up. This can lead to them losing a few friends along the way.
Aries butt heads like the ram they are known for. They’re not afraid of conflict or confrontation. An Aries can blow up and freak out about anything. They are quick to anger. Road rage can be terrible, so watch out if you’re driving with an Aries! They don’t like other people standing in their way.
This sign will be aware of all your mistakes. They notice flaws quickly. They may have unrealistic expectations, but don’t tell them that! It’s not hard to light an Aries’ fuse, and the bomb at the end packs a big blow. Family and friends may not be willing to open up to Aries about their emotions because of their extreme reactions.
Aries may hide their inner feelings. They want to appear tough so often that they won’t crack their hard exterior for anyone. Their stubbornness makes them react outwards. They have bold, harsh energy that comes across in their words. People may be offended by what they choose to say, especially if it comes out at the wrong time. They may deny feeling bad about an argument afterward. Aries are bothered by personal relationships but will never say it out loud. They hold grudges for a very long time.
An unevolved Aries may feel in competition with everyone. They may rely on their ego far too much. Their ego may especially get in the way when it comes to jealousy. They may post their entire lives away if they’re social-media users.
Aries are fearless. They like action and taking control. This fire sign is a driven and relentless protector. They want to be a shield for everyone, especially the people they love.
