March 21 – April 19
Aries is a cardinal fire sign, ruled by Mars – the planet of action, named after the Roman god of war. As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries almost always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are always on the look out for speed and competition, and are one of the most active star signs.
Courageous and determined, the Aries individual possess a natural youthful energy and strength, walking into situations head first and are rarely held back by hesitations of trial and risk.
When faced with an obstacle, Aries prefer to address it head on with a mix of optimism, impatience and impulsiveness. They often take a very straightforward, black and white approach to life and do not pay as much attention as they should, perhaps, to its many subtleties and nuances.
