The First House: the House of Self
March 21st through April 19th
Aries rules the head, face,
and brain. People born under Aries may be more
susceptible to headaches and nosebleeds than people of
Aries is opposite Libra, the Scales of Balance
Aries people are able to accomplish many things by sheer
energy and force of will: "ramming" their way
to their goals. Arians can be blunt, and they are bold
and strong. People born under this Sign like to get
things started. They tend to display strong leadership
with their extroverted and assertive natures . They are
the pioneers of the Zodiac, tramping courageously into
the wilderness. They are strongly independent and
determined, and have the physical stamina to stay on
course. They tend to be very competitive, and may
sometimes seem arrogant, domineering or intolerant. But
all these qualities make Aries the natural choice to
initiate projects and get things started. They are adept
at "taking the ball and running with it," and
projects tend to progress quickly under their guidance.
But a well-run project may become boring for Aries, and
they can lack follow-through and lose interest before
it's completed. Occasionally their tendency for haste and
hurry can get them into trouble if they don't think
things through carefully enough, and this can lead to
frustration. At times, people can think Arians are brash,
rude, and inconsiderate. But Aries is only doing what the
Ram's nature tells them to do. As soon as they discover a
new project, all else is forgotten.
Arians tend to want what they want and when they want it.
Aries need to accept that this isn't always possible, and
stop butting their heads, Ramlike, into the nearest wall.
This is a valuable lesson that enables them to develop
their understanding of themselves. But because of the ego
that can manifest itself in Aries, some Rams may feel
that they are the center of the universe. Aries who wish
to develop themselves learn that they are part of the
larger order of all people.
The great strength of the Aries-born is in their energy,
initiative, and courage. Their ability to take a project
and go with it is unparalleled.
The fire they bring to their lives makes them one of the
most dynamic characters of the Zodiac.
