Aries is the sign of the zodiac for those born during 21 March to 19 April.

People born during this time are said to have been 'born under the [astrological] sign of Aries' and are sometimes referred to as 'Arians' or sometimes 'Ariens', depending on which system of astrology is being used, referred to or written about. Alternatively, many books and websites simply use the phrases 'Aries Man', 'Aries Woman', 'Aries Lover' etc..

Aries is one of the three "Fire Signs", the other two being Leo and Sagittarius. It is traditionally referred to and depicted as the 'ram'. There are many different styles of illustration used to portray and represent astrological signs. The ram may therefore be shown from the front or side and as various or no particular breed. The simple black line symbol used here is a version of a widely used symbol for the astrological sign of Aries.

Aries Characteristics


Arian characteristics are generally said to include:

  • Friendly
  • Romantic
  • Fearless
  • Forceful

Arians tend to get to the point and focus on the heart of issues rather than 'beat around the bush'.

Generally, people born under the sign of aries tend to be 'doers'. When they intend to accomplish things they're active in fulfilling their determination to succeed, one way or another. Considering the forces of determination, energy and enthusiasm they bring to projects, they can be said to "ram" their way to success.

It's not surprising that they're also known for being:

  • Optimistic
  • Ingenuous
  • Out-spoken

Arians may also gain reputations for "shooting first, and asking questions later". Such impulsive yet passionate nature sometimes inspires others but can also backfire if they then lose interest almost as quickly as they started a project. Nevertheless, arians quickly forget frustration and anger as they have a essentially a generous nature.
