Archetypes and Roles
The Leader, the Enthusiast, the Pioneer, the Warrior, the Daredevil, the Competitor
As the zodiac's first sign, youth is linked to the Ram. The Aries-born project an attractive, childlike quality. You focus on the future and have a special flair for releasing all that has outlived its usefulness. You prefer to keep your own schedule and are noted for arriving either early or, more often, late for appointments. There is a subconscious urge not be dominated.
"I Am" is your spiritual signature, showing a need for individual expression. In Hindu astrology Aries is represented as a thunderbolt or fire. Your sign marks the start of spring- as the Ram emerges, form is created from the void. Jason and the Argonauts sought the Golden Fleece, showing the Ram as emblem of quest and adventure. A golden ram appeared in Greco-Roman myth as a side of Hermes that could fly and talk. This shows a link between spirituality and intellectual inquiry combined with activity which is unique to you.
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, symbolizing a new beginning. You plunge right into any new plan or idea you may have.
Others' first impression of you is of someone exciting, vibrant, and talkative.
You are a self-confident natural leader. Opposition is an annoyance to be brushed out of the way.
There is nothing faint-hearted about an Arien. Underneath, there may be insecurity, but no one will ever know it.
This is not to say you don't get depressed or moody, but it never lasts for long. You have an uncrackable optimism. It is true, however, that Aries people are notorious for taking offense at imagined slights and injuries.
You are always ready to give someone your opinion. Hot-tempered and impatient, you take offense to anything resembling an injury.
You want to run the whole show.
Your aggressive and combative spirit cannot be broken by anyone - except yourself.
Though generally sincere and honest, you will tell a white lie if it seems advantageous. Sometimes you lack tact and diplomacy, but no malice is intended. Too often you speak without thinking and usually regret it later.
In friendship, you give generously, but you want credit for your good deeds.
You are creative, open-hearted, high-spirited, pioneering, also vain, feisty, and impatient. Those who deal with you on an intimate basis will have but one problem: How are they going to keep up the pace?
