1.3 – The Signs of the Zodiac and Their Significance
ARIES – THE RAM
March 21—April 19
Headwork is the chief factor of this sign. Persons born under Aries are keen, creative, and highly adaptive; but they are also impetuous and headstrong. This is accentuated by the Governing planet, Mars, which adds an aggressive touch to an already active and ambitious nature. Their incessant drive gets them off to a good start on any project, but they are apt to become diverted and scatter their further effort.
Though quick to anger, Aries people often calm easily. They are naturally humorous and quick of wit; they enjoy music and entertainment. They say the right thing at the right time; and as students, they are often keen and have the ability of applying whatever they learn to good advantage. They like new things and have a way of rousing and swaying other persons to work along with them. In all fields, however, there is a frequent disinclination to “stay with it” once the novelty wears off. Coincident with this is an Aries tendency of giving ideas to other people and also leaving detail work to others. This is seldom a mark of generosity or confidence on the Aries person’s part, but more the desire to see things carried through without effort on their own part. There is a strong ego in the Aries nature, which causes them to become visionary and idealistic, thereby rising to positions of importance and esteem. Conversely, they can let their impatience ruin them, turning them into fickle, self-centered individuals, foolish or false in their generosity. Unable to attain their high aspirations, they may value money only as a means to such a goal, spending it foolishly and extravagantly. Thus misguided by their own impetuosity, Aries persons become angry when plans fail. They may find fault or interfere with their subordinates, blaming them instead. They often regard their own ideas as perfect and sometimes set up their own standards of right or wrong, even to the extent of sheer fanaticism. This can prove disastrous to their careers. When well controlled, Aries people foster friendship and promote both harmony and beauty, which they relish to the degree of luxury. They show loyalty and are willing to fight for what they consider right; all the more reason why they should set high and worthy standards. Being natural leaders, Aries people do not lace to take orders from others; but they should at least accept advice if they hope to attain their ambitions.
In business, Aries determination spells success, if good choice is shown toward opportunities and issues are squarely faced. Aries people are specially suited to the Atomic Age, as they shine in new and undeveloped fields, due to their eagerness to lead the way. In more prosaic pursuits, they are good salesmen and their drive is valuable in real estate, insurance, banking, and other financial fields. Professionally, they are fine actors, capable lawyers, and statesmen. They are also qualified for literary and artistic work. Due to their strong executive ability, Aries people usually do better on their own, rather than entering into any partnership. However, they need business associates to a degree and their surest choice is someone born under Taurus. While Aries teams well with Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces, any of those are apt to profit more from the association unless the Aries person is strongly dominant. Any association between Aries and Capricorn or Aries and Scorpio may prove highly productive of problems. In marriage, Aries persons frequently find harmony and understanding with those born in Leo, Sagittarius, or under their own sign. Marriages with Gemini or Libra are regarded as specially suited to the Aries temperament.
