Aries Ascendant: The Aries Rising Sign Characteristics

The ruler of Aries ascendant is Mars, who has endowed you with an athletic physique and a youthful spirit. Your vitality is boundless and you are always ready to take any initiative.

Aries Rising Sign: The Ascendant In Aries and its meaning

With an Aries Ascendant, you are independent, love adventure and can succeed in anything you do. Image is very important for you and so you pay special attention to your dress sense. You are honest and straightforward and aren’t afraid to tell the truth, even if this hurts others. There is nothing nasty in your intentions, but you are simply a faithful friend of the truth.

You act immediately and when something attracts your attention you try to make it yours straight away. You don’t like wasting time. You are impatient and always want to be ‘first’. If you see that something isn’t turning out at the pace you’d like it to, then your interest and enthusiasm wane.

This type of behaviour, however, can be the cause of you losing many important things in your life and so you must ‘train’ yourself not to insist.

You will learn to do this if you plan your steps and don’t make any rushed moves, which will not bring positive results. In any case, your goals and priorities are clear and you have the ability to overcome any obstacle that you encounter.

You are a sociable person and enjoy interacting and making friends, but these relationships rarely last long however. People stay in your life when you share common interests. When your interests are different, you seek a new company.

Throughout your life, you will meet many people who are willing to help your progress, but you have learned to rely on your own resources and don’t like to feel that you may have been promoted to a position that perhaps you don’t deserve.

You believe that your own personal efforts will, sooner or later, be acknowledged and that success will taste sweeter. On the contrary, you do what you can to aid your friends and refuse to accept that someone will reject your help.

You have very strong emotions and passions and this may lead you to a rushed wedding at a young age or long-term cohabitation, as you will feel the need for a partner by your side. If this relationship does not work out then you will be very hurt but will learn to control your emotions and be more cautious in the future. 

Exercise is very important to you as it helps you maintain a good physical condition and mental outlook.

Aries ascendant personality traits

As an Aries Ascendant, when something gets your attention, you’re likely to act upon it immediately, especially when we are talking about a love interest. You certainly don’t like wasting time, so when something (or someone) doesn’t prove to be worthy of your attention, you give up relatively easily. If there’s an area that you can work on to save yourself hurt and resentment, it’s your patience and persistence –some things are good enough, they just need some more time. Since, as an Aries Rising sign, you’re probably quite sociable, you can make friends easily, but might not keep them for long periods of time. Building common interests with the people around you might strengthen those bonds.

Life has probably already taught you how to rely on your own resources in order to make it and be self-sufficient. A good lesson you can teach yourself though is not to always reject the assistance of your friends, as they can help you progress in life and share emotions that you wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. Think what a great feeling it is to be there for someone important to you –wouldn’t it be great if you allowed them to feel the same way every once in a while?

Aries ascendant physical appearance

Your Aries Ascendant has probably been very generous for your outward physical appearance, giving you a sporty and fit physique, together with a youthful spirit. You have amazing physical resources and your vitality is always high, allowing you to pioneer in every venture, in many aspects of your life. As an Aries Rising sign, the idea of “image” is likely to be of special importance to you, making you very careful about what you wear and how you present yourself in general. One of your main traits is how straightforward you are, not afraid to share what you feel is the truth, even if it might end up hurting someone else. Given that your predisposition is never harmful, this trait makes you a loyal and trustworthy friend.

Aries Ascendant Man

Aries Ascendant men like to be in control. They are driven by ambition and have the tendency to act impulsively. They require absolute honesty of their partner, but often only do so as a way of getting what they want. Aries Rising men love the chase, as they’re always up for a good challenge and relish the thrill that comes with winning a woman’s heart; the greater the challenge, the greater their attraction to the woman they’re after. They’re usually drawn to spontaneous women. They want to be seen as unique and irreplaceable, which is why they want to know nothing about their partner’s former lovers. They need a partner who can assuage their anxieties, as they sometimes find it hard to express themselves sexually. Once they’ve conquered a woman’s heart and feel comfortable with her, their aggressive façade gives way to their more vulnerable side.
