Profile of an Aries
First and foremost, Aries are independent go-getters that are often the person leading the way. The first of the Zodiac signs, they are usually always the first people to try something in a new way, to break down tradition and look for a new approach. They have an optimistic and charismatic personality that draws others to follow the lead. People can sense that an Aries will bring excitement into their lives!
Active is a key word to associate with aries. If they think of a business idea they’re usually all to happy to dive straight in and take the gamble. This can be seen by others as being reckless but if works out, then the payoff will be worth it, and that’s all that matters to Aries. Because, if success does not come almost immediately, they will lose interest quickly and their mind will wander onto the next big idea. They have a very low tolerance and a lack of patience. It’s all for the excitement, and if that leaves a venture, they’re off somewhere else to look for it.
That being said, Aries make very good friends, are protective, caring and generous and are full of encouragement and optimism. However, keep in mind that if an Aries is confronted or challenged, their behaviour can turn quite childish and they can sometimes respond in an almost aggressive manner. Losing tempers is not unknown for this sign…
Because, underneath the bravado, independence and search for excitement, Aries are actually pretty insecure. This is in part to an intense desire to succeed and the ability to pile an enormous pressure on themselves. There can be times of self-doubt, usually when no one else is watching, however it is soon replaced with confidence as their natural enthusiasm takes hold again. Many people in an Aries life will not see this display of insecurity, but it’s there. Keep this in mind with Aries that are in your life and let it help you to understand their incessant determination.
As we’ve seen throughout this profile, Aries are Independent. They do not cope well with taking orders from other and really enjoy getting their own way. They’re more than happy to answer with a resounding NO if they don’t want to do something. They can easily take offence so watch how you phrase things if you don’t want to see the Aries retreat into moodiness. They can be self-centres and sometimes don’t pay attention to the feelings of others, which can lead to resentment as the Aries is perceived as being spoiled or selfish.
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries tend to venture far into the world, enjoying travel and business, but also any activity where they get to be the centre of attention. They are natural, confident leaders who will enthusiastically tell all about their goals, dreams and visions. Although sometimes, the wanting is more thrilling than the getting, and once an Aries gets what they have been seeking, they quickly become bored and are off on another adventure. Aries are very impulsive, acting and speaking without thinking, and this can lead to a kind of No Filter situation where they are liable to say anything!
