Aries is the first, or youngest sign of the Zodiac. You represent the head of the Astrological body, basically controlling every other sign. You say, “Walk,” and the Sagittarius (Thighs), Capricorns (Knees), Aquarians (Ankles) and Pisces (Feet) start working together to make that happen. You say, “Look over there!” and Taurus (Neck) has no choice but to position you. You say, “Grab that!” And Gemini (Hands) picks up the item and shows you. Aries is the master delegator.
Aries is ruled by Mars, so you are the most fiery-tempered, passionate and masculine sign of the Zodiac. This does not mean you are a caveman—even though we can all joke about it—it just means you are always going to keep moving forward, fighting whoever opposes you, while at the same time, protecting the rest of the Astrological body with your quick-thinking, powerful mind.
You are sensitive, and for this reason you must protect yourself. You don’t deal with people, who enjoy inflicting pain on others. If someone hurts you, they are gone forever. You are the self. The identity. You have to protect who you are, because if you don’t, there will be one less warrior among us. And the balance will be thrown off.
You are the leader. Quick. Strong. In everyone’s face, making the hard decisions—quickly. You don’t have time for stupid banter and chitchat, as it cuts into your “Me” time. You don’t wait around to figure out if someone likes you. You just do you—this is by far, one of your most admirable traits.
You are kind, and people don’t give you enough credit for that. You want things to be easy and nice for everyone, but especially yourself. You want to see things flow. You want love. For you, and for everyone. You take the love first, and then you pass it down through the rest of your Astrological body.
You are completely competitive, because you must protect what is yours. If it’s a skill, you will protect your title. If it’s a character trait, you will protect your honor. If it’s someone close to you, you will protect your love. You know within yourself what your strengths are, and what you have to give. You know when you are at your best and you are not afraid to act on impulse.
You think for yourself. You secure the oxygen mask on yourself, before helping those around you. You know your limits and you know when it’s time to put the barriers up around you.
Aries is the God of War. You have a fiery temper, but only when you truly believe in something. When you know your purpose, you act on that purpose. When you know your gifts, you share them with others. You are the ringleader. The creator. You start the action, and you make this world move.
And that is why I love you, Aries.
