Aries star sign traits and personality

The ruling planet of Aries is Mars, which signifies war and energy.

It's a fire sign and ruled by the headstrong Ram, making them stand their ground and refuse to be pushed around.

Aries are confident, which makes them great leaders as they can champion themselves and others, but this can also make them stubborn, reckless, and competitive.

Although Aries can sometimes be selfish and entitled, they will never back down from a challenge, and will still try and help others.

What signs are compatible with Aries?

Aries have quick tempers, but also forgive and forget easily, and are best matched with fire signs, or air signs to share their energy.

Best matches:

  • Gemini – this relationship will be vibrant, as you both share an inquisitive nature and love to learn and explore
  • Sagittarius – another energetic sign, this relationship will be full of fun and harmony, and also a great match in the bedroom
  • Leo – you'll have to learn the share the spotlight, but if it works, your relationship can be active and adventurous

Worst matches:

  • Virgo – Virgos can be perfectionists, and easily critical, which can clash with an Aries and their need for leadeship
  • Capricorn – they are also natural leaders, which can clash with Aries
  • Taurus – Taurus folk enjoy a less fast paced life to Aries, making a relationship almost impossible. Taurus like to carefully earn money, and Aries enjoy spending it, making it easy to clash over money, too

Pairing with another Aries could be disastrous, but in some cases, two rams can be a perfect pair, if one plays a more supporting role.

Where does the Zodiac come from?

The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

What is the Aries zodiac symbol?

The Aries horoscope symbol is the Ram, a sheep with large curving horns.

The Aries sign symbol is usually depicted as a very simple graphic meant to resemble the head of the Ram.

In 2016, Nasa announced that there have always been 13 constellations.

Ophiuchus is the name of the 13th constellation that has been part of the Sun's path in the sky.

Despite Ophiuchus being named in astronomy, most astrologists have left it out of the zodiac wheel.

The reason for this is that star signs are based on seasons rather than the constellations.

The zodiac wheel is a calendar placing the star signs along the four seasons.

If you choose to base the zodiac wheel on the constellations and include Ophiuchus, the sign would be wedged between Sagittarius and Scorpio.

The inclusion of this sign changes the dates of all other star signs.
