Aries Those born between March 21st and April 20th are born under the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. This month we will be taking an in depth look at the star sign, discussing its history and mythology as well as the unique traits of an Arian. Basic Facts Your element: Fire Your ruling planets: Mars Symbol: The Ram Your stone: Amethyst/Diamond History & Mythology The star sign of Aries is controlled by the assertive Mars, the God of War in Greek Mythology. Similar to all the other star signs, there are many different myths and stories involving the origin of Aries. In Greek mythology, Aries was the name given to the ram owned by Phrixos. The ram safely carried Phrixos over the Hellespoint on its back. To show his ‘thanks’ he killed and skinned the ram, hanging its skin in the Grove of Ares, where its fleece turned gold. The rams Golden Fleece is thought to have been anxiously sought after by Jason and the Argonauts. When Jason acquired the fleece, Zeus placed the Ram in the sky, dedicating it to him. The Golden Fleece has been attributed to enlightenment and knowledge. Traits As the first sign of the Zodiac, unsurprisingly Arians are natural born leaders. Just like the symbol for Aries, they can literally ‘ram’ their way through life through sheer energy and assurance. Arians take initiative and are fearless, with a thirst to explore the unknown in life. They crave adventure and are often found travelling and exploring the world. Arians are lively and energetic, and have no problem making decisions by themselves. People often admire their independence, confidence and their no nonsense attitude to achieving their goals. However, sometimes Arians self-assurance can be seen by others as over assertive or even self-centred. Arians can often make mistakes through their impatient desire to succeed. Hasty and impulsive decisions can sometimes be rewarding but Arians can often benefit from learning to focus and think things through properly. Arians don’t get along with lazy people as they find they can stand in the way of their proactive attitude. Famous Arians Unsurprisingly, some of the most influential, charismatic and powerful celebrities have been born under the sign of Aries. Vincent Van Gogh and Elton John demonstrate the creative and inspired side of the Aries sign, while Thomas Jefferson and Quentin Tarantino show Arians strong ability to lead and direct. Other notable Arians include figures such as Lady Gaga, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Diana Ross.
