Aries loves to be number one, so it comes with only a little surprise that these rams form the first sign of the zodiac. Ruled by the head, they are bold, ambitious, fearless, even when facing the most challenging situations. They are energetic, constantly looking for speed, competition, and a chance to rule. No one can be a better leader than an Aries. Direct in their approach, they love building communities on the ground of sheer determination and hard work. Loyal, smart, and impulsive, sometimes, they like things dirty. What’s more, they are extremely straightforward, which may occasionally make them sound rude or arrogant. But that only stems out because they value honesty above all. While Aries may be the first to point out if they think you’ve screwed up a project, they will also be the first one to appreciate you for a job well done.

Aries Symbolism & Myth

The symbol of Aries represents the face and horns of a ram. The sign corresponds to the stellar constellation depicted by the old world astrology. In the Babylonian times, the Aries symbol was associated with the god of shepherds. However, the sign gained importance from the golden ram of Greek mythology that rescued Phrixus and Helle on orders from Hermes, taking Phrixus to the land of Colchis, where the ram was sacrificed to the gods. The ram’s skin appeared in the form of the golden fleece, which forms a huge reference in the story of Jason and the Argonauts.

The name, Aries is derived from “Ares”, the blood-thirsty god of war and son to Zeus and Hera.

Aries Element, Mode, & Season

Element - Fire; Mode - Cardinal; Season - Spring

Aries is a cardinal sign that not only kicks off the spring season but also the zodiac wheel. Since Aries doesn’t have a proceeding sign, there is no inherited wisdom, but they lead life with blind optimism that entirely compliments their sense of joy and impulsiveness.

Spring

The world opens up its arms to us every year with the commencement of the spring season when the zodiac year begins. That’s why spring is the season of Aries. Full of new beginnings, passion, fresh potential, and marks the end of winter, negativity, and weak emotions.

Aries season begins at the Vernal Equinox with the rebirth of the sun and reawakening of life after the endless winter nights.

Cardinal Mode

Aries are the trailblazers. They form the first of the four cardinal signs of the zodiac, who are forthright and unabashed. They are all about the initial attraction, drawn to someone with a strong personality, looking to foster long-term relationships. They are fiery, loyal, versatile, and above all, amazing lovers.

Their element energy is The Spark. Aries personality is fiery.

Fire Element

Forged in Fire, the secret weapon to Aries is the iron, which means they can take on a wide range of limitless shapes and qualities. The element fire is all about spontaneity, inspiration, and intuition. Possessing qualities similar to the gleaming light of the stars and fresh rays of the sun, Aries is a born leader, unstoppable, even by the strongest forces in the universe.

Passion, dedication, and honesty are some of the Aries characteristics.

Aries Planetary Rulership

The ruler of this zodiac sign is the fiery Mars. Being fascinated by the color of the planet, the ancient Greeks attributed it to the Ares. As mentioned before, Ares meaning the god of wars. Later, when the Romans conquered the Greeks, they renamed the planet to the Roman god of war, Mars.

Domicile of Mars

According to traditional astrology, zodiac signs were conceptualized as the homes of the planets, wherein each planet had its specific domicile. Aries is the domicile of Mars.

Mars in Aries symbolizes courage, ambition, aggression, which when paired with the element fire, becomes unbeatable. Aries are known for their fine leadership skills and boundless energy, so it’s easy for Mars to step in and charge forward within the sign.

Exaltation of the Sun

The sun is exalted in Aries because of abundant power and light that makes the planet kingly itself. Moreover, Aries marks the beginning of a new era, to which the Sun is an integral part.

The exalted sun provides Aries with the power to lead, launch, initiate new projects with dominance and command. Aries are usually good in the field of politics, sports, and corporate affairs. Their sheer tenacity makes them the center of attraction.

Detriment of Venus

Aries ruled by Mars likes to conquer and confront by hook or crook. Whereas, Venus, on the other hand, is a planet of harmony, cooperation, and partnership.

Venus is in detriment in Aries, which means it is difficult for the planet to govern the energy of the sign. With such a sign placement, Venus has to compromise in Aries and present them as independent, aggressive individuals with an outburst of energy, confidence, and selfish desires.

Venus in Aries means they go after what they want, and try to fully conquer their lover’s heart.

Fall of Saturn

Opposite to its exaltation in Libra, Saturn is in fall in Aries, another kind of an unfavorable position. Those born with Saturn in Aries may notice others exerting influence easily over their life. That’s why they tend to be restless and impulsive in opposition to depicting the calmness of Saturn.

Being the first sign of the zodiac, the inexperience of Aries also supports the Saturn’s fall here, for Saturn is governed through experiences.

Aries House Rulership

The house ruler is the planet ruling the sign located at the cusp of the respective house in the horoscope.

The First House

Astrologers assigned the first house out of the twelve houses in the birth chart. This was done to study the energies of these signs in accordance with the house they ruled.

The bold, courageous attributes of Aries were similar to how the person who belonged to the first house would have identified themselves.

The Sixth House

Mars is undeniably a powerful planet, transferring all its strong suits to the native. But when placed badly, it can be a difficult planet, leading to violence, turmoil, and conflicts.

Since Mars is said to find “joy” in the sixth house of the birth chart, it expresses its rather villainous attributes, inviting hard luck and health complications for the native.

Personality

Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic, turbulent, and dynamic. They are bold, courageous, and always looking for a change. With Mars being their ruling planet, they possess exemplary leadership skills that let them take on tough challenges in life and thrive amongst them.

Being the leader that they are, Aries helps others overcome ideas of self-doubt. They can be your closest friend, confidant, and support in the face of adversities.

Weaknesses

Sometimes the strongest suits of the Aries zodiac sign can be their weakness. Being so headstrong, they find it difficult to give up control and view life from someone else’s perspective. This fire sign thinks after they leap, which often results in lessons learned the hard way.

Their strong impulses come in the way of them being a patient team player. Not just that! Their straightforward attitude often comes across as rude or harsh.

Aries Compatibility

The compatibility of zodiac signs depends upon a lot of factors including the placement and cross-connections of the planets. In general, the most compatible signs with Aries are considered to be Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.

Aries natives may find it difficult to bond with Cancer and Capricorn.

Aries Health

From a health perspective, Aries must take extra care of their stomach and kidneys. Moreover, since they lead with their heads, an increase in the stress levels may make them prone to tension headaches and migraines.
