The strong-willed fire of Aries, the doers of the Zodiac. They know how to take
initiative and lead with an unbreakable spirit that inspires others.
Just like Leo and Sagittarius, Aries is ruled by Mars and bears the element of fire. Mars endows Aries with a courageous spirit and the power to destroy. This does not necessarily mean destruction out of anger, the ultimate goal for all fire signs is to use their courageous energy for a worthy cause. Mars people are the ones who will fight for peace, sometimes even physically if it comes down to it.
These people are usually ready to take on anything that comes their way. They can be very stubborn, direct, and straightforward. They are definitely not afraid of hard work and never give up without a fight. Like a Ram, they tend to charge forward with a sense of recklessness and impatience, often running into walls in the process. Despite this, they always seem to manage to keep their optimism and innocence.
Easily taking initiative, sparing no time for dilly dally and over thinking, they can often be very successful in their career paths. They tend to become pioneers in whatever they do and love the thrill that a good challenge brings.
These people are always in the here and now. They love starting new endeavors, and it can be tough for them to stick to one thing for a long time. They prefer to get things done their way and highly value their own independence. It can be hard for them to see the point of view of others, and they can tend to step on the toes of those who do not share their views on life.
As partners they can be very warm and passionate. Although still stubborn, they would do best to find a partner who can tolerate their somewhat inflexibility. They can be quite flirtatious and direct, often in an impulsive manner. They are passionate and love adventure, if you ever get them to commit then they can be loyal for a lifetime.
Overall, Aries people are not all that complicated and love to physically get things done. They don’t live in the past and don’t like to bear grudges. Temper problems can be a issue, but can lessen with age and experience.
Ultimately, Aries people should strive to use their fiery energy for the greater good. And at the same time, never lose sight of their own values, needs, and desires.
