What is Aries? What are the Basic traits of Aries? What is the importance of Aries in Zodiac Signs?

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac which is a masculine, movable and fiery in nature. Aries is dominated by its ruling planet Mars. It begins at the Spring Equinox, the point when the Earth enters into a period of longer days and shorter nights. Aries is a powerful symbol of new beginnings, energy, light, and creativity. People born under the sign of Aries may well turn out to be great leaders, if they can keep their aggression and tendency to dominate others in check. Aries must always be undertaking new projects, especially creative endeavours, to keep their high energy occupied. They are extroverts and tend toward impulsivity. Their challenge is to properly channel their energy. Aries personalities are independent. Being the first of the zodiac signs, they venture out and are go-getters, often leading the way. Their upbeat and magnetic personality often entices others to follow their lead because Aries personalities bring excitement into others live.

Parashara describes Aries as follows: “The complexion of Aries is blood-red. It has a prominent (big) body. It is a quadruped sign and strong during the night. It denotes courage. It resides in the East, and is related to kings. It wanders in the grassy lands and around lakes surrounded by vegetable and its predominant guna is Rajasic. It rises with its back and it is a fiery sign. Its ruler is “Mangal” (Mars) which represents strength, and is a male and movable sign. Mesha represents the head of the Kalapurusha.

The natives born under Aries sign will be the trail blazer and the pathfinder. They will be great starters of things but soon they fed up with their work and soon hand it over to someone else to finish while they search for new worlds to conquer. They love absolutely a challenge that will stir them to a motion. The monetary rewards will not be as attractive as the inner satisfaction they get from meeting and overcoming these challenges and leaving your opponents in your heel dust. That is their role in life and the reason that the Sun is exalted in the Aries sign as it is here the will is given free rein to express itself. Aries are born leaders and teachers or preachers. Their teaching ability will be felt more in the relationships they have with others. For example, they will make able people to see their own actions in a new way or a different light. Everyone benefits who has associations with the higher, more evolved type of Arian natives.

Force will be a part of their nature but it does not mean that they would not be afraid of being forceful when circumstances dictate them. If there have been circumstances in their early life which made them a victim of force then one may see fear creeping in within them and for this reason if they do not allow them self to exhibit their true nature it will lead to suppression and inner turmoil. By suppressing the natural urges, especially when needed them to set right a wrong to them self or someone else can also lead to guilt and actual, bodily ailments.

In Indian astrology which is also known as Vedic astrology, Mars is considered a part of the earth which stuck off from earth after a heavy collision due to its angry nature and therefore also known as the son of the earth.

According to Western Astrology Mars has been named after the Roman God of War who was said to be daring and totally fearless and therefore the same quality can be found in the personality of a native born under Aries sign.

The ruling planet of Mars makes him completely sure of his abilities and in stills in him guts, a sense of adventure as well as a strength of purpose. He may, at times, act without giving much thought to the consequences of the actions taken. That’s why Mesh is also knows as initiator and warrior.

The planet also imparts mental strength, liveliness and the resolve to succeed. Such individuals move ahead in life without fear and full of drive, determination and fortitude. The courage sometimes makes them blind to the dangers ahead, which may catch them unawares and throw them off balance. However, the drive to move ahead and achieve the goal is so strong that such a setback manages to stop them only temporarily. Then, they again move ahead with the same fierce determination.
