ARIES The Aries personality is straightforward and basically uncomplicated. Ariens have a rare clarity of mind which helps them to simplify issues which to most of us would be endlessly tricky and complex. Ariens are highly competitive, but any close friend of an Arien would know that, while the theme of the sign is ‘me first’, this is not based entirely on selfishness but on the desire to win and to be out in front. It is a natural expression of the Arien energy and drive
At school and in early life Aries will very often want to win at sport or be top of the form (though conversely, many are easily bored and couldn’t care less about studies). In later life that winning characteristic gets positive expression through the career the achievement of ambitions for their own advancement and the good of their families. This is the Arien need to be first at its best,since they are great supporters of their families. Arien mothers, for instance, will champion their children’s causes to the hilt and stick up for their rights at school. In every Aries there is also an element of the pioneer, which will emerge in a variety of ways.
Aries In Love When Ariens fall in love, they fall quickly and very passionately. Sometimes it is all too easy for them to rush ahead and expect a relationship to develop very quickly. This can of course happen, and the result is fun for all. But Ariens should be a little cautious, for they could spoil things by being just too pushy.
Aries At Work Aries like being the leader and aren’t as comfortable in a subordinate role. This isn’t usually a problem, since — thanks to their cocksure belief in themselves — they like to start projects and blaze the trail for colleagues. True to a Fire Sign, Aries can be combustible at times. At least they’re always ready to rumble! Even if they aren’t always diplomatic, Aries are considerate of their colleagues and display great energy and courage in the workplace. As long as Rams can stay within themselves, they are likely to be successful.
Loves: Being first, competition and being the winner at all costs. Honesty in people pleases them and they adore sex.
Hates: Losing, being a team player, apologising and admitting they are wrong. Deceitful people and folk who sit on the fence.
Needs To Cultivate: Humility, co-operation and restraint for “out of the frying pan into the fire” attitude, which is something every Arien learns the minute they take the initiative and get their fingers burnt for the first time.
The more emotional you feel, the more you tend to keep your feelings under wraps. Instead of it being a drawback, you can use intense emotions as the fuel to make an impact in your world. You never know what your emotional weather will be from one day to the next, but no matter how you feel you can develop strategies for working with your moods instead of having them work against you. The Moon in intuitive Pisces and your psychic twelfth house can offer tremendously helpful insight if you can push past your fear of delving deeper into your murky mood.
