Aries is one of the most challenging star signs as far as interactions go and that is one of their stand-out traits. They are fiery & competitive but under the surface there’s so much more to this fierce sign. Before we take a closer look at the characteristics of the star sign of Aries let us begin by saying that the sign’s drive to win comes from its Cardinal Quality, while the enthusiasm and relentless action-taking that can be found in most Arians is due to the sign’s categorization under the Fire Element. Now you may think of this information as something only us astrologers can work with but in fact the quality of each sign largely shapes its compatibility with other zodiac signs.
People under the star sign of Aries, the sign of the Individual, do tend to take everything personally and oftentimes find it hard to understand or embrace the point of view of another. This too is a choice which sometimes it backfires as while it is attractive to certain signs of the zodiac to others it can be quite tiring. However this strong-willed built of Aries should not be viewed as necessarily negative as it means that the sign has self-motivation. An Aries doesn’t need or seek the approval of others and is one of the most independent signs of the zodiac cycle.
The lack of patience that’s characteristic of the sign of Aries turns into a positive trait when forced to act on the spot. There is no difficulty in making quick decisions for people under this sign but it’s nearly impossible for them to accept others making their decisions for them. This sign detests following instructions and hence prefers to not have a boss to answer to.The tendency to starts fights (oftentimes for no apparent reason) that is very prominent in this sign is to be blamed on the sign’s ruler, Mars. The God of War, known as Ares, creates a constant sense of tension to people under this sign. However it’s important to remember that fights are also how Aries people express their love. Life’s an adventure, challenges are a gift and “the time is now”, always, for people under this sign and, consequently, for the ones close to them.
The Aries Man
The Aries man isn’t a man for all seasons. He springs into life just as quick as spring arrives and then loses interest just as quick at it leaves. He likes to be first among equals. He likes to think of himself as a man’s man but he’s just a little lamb lost in the woods once you strip away the bravado. He’s exciting company and generous with it.
How to make an Aries Man fall in love
On a clear day you can see the typical Aries guy’s ego from space. Size is everything to him. Winning is everything to him. But then he often can’t be bothered with the hassle of ending a relationship and so, even if it’s not picture-perfect, The Rockies may crumble, Alaska could turn to slush but the two of you will endure. Once, that is, you get used to every conversation ending up being about him and learn to convince yourself that it’s cute.
The Aries Woman
‘Eat my dust’ says Lady Aries before there’s been hardly any time for introductions. That’s introduction enough. Lady Aries is uncomplicated, competitive, in your face. She loves to win and, should she fall flat on her face, up she gets. She has no time to be moping around. Off to the next challenge! Lady Aries is drawn to power and dynamism and loves to put others under her thumb. Failing that, she likes a partner who does it for her. Still, even the meekest Aries woman loves to hunt, conquer and get her prize (that’s you). She prefers the direct approach so, if you fancy Aries gal, make your move, and fast. Or she will! She doesn’t like waiting around. When she’s not falling for instant gratification, this lady will play hard to get and enjoy dangling the carrot in your face. You’re gonna have to win Aries over - and keep winning her over, because when the chase stops, the love stops. Lady Aries gets bored and goes looking for new thrills.
This woman is impetuous, impatient and can be tactless and indiscreet. She takes everything - absolutely everything - personally. And if, after much clarification, you finally explain that you are not really talking about her, her attention wanders. Everything revolves around Lady Aries. She is either a leader or a loner, depending on circumstance. She just charges ahead and never turns around to see if anybody follows.
How Aries acts when they first fall in love
The first bloom of love is the one Aries is most suited to - it’s like a shot of wellness in the arm that brings the color back to their cheeks! If you thought the ram was a handful before, then you ain’t seen nothing like when they first fall in love, and being such a generous soul they’re impatient for their friends to get a shot of what they’re getting – that’s right, love turns them into matchmakers!
