Being an Aries or your Ascendant is Aries:
As an Aries Sun sign, you are the first astrological sign in the zodiac. This also makes you the first Fire sign and the first Cardinal sign. The planet Mars is your ruling planet and represented by the 1st house – ‘I am’.
You express your vital energy in a very cut and dried way, you do not resist taking the driver’s seat and you may come across as arrogant. Charging ahead also implies hurting yourself and being suddenly overcome by doubt. As a result, your courage, your honesty, your enthusiasm and your straightforwardness may turn into aggressiveness, rebellion and vulnerability that no one ever suspected. Fortunately, the level of your energy is very high and your instinctive and pugnacious side will not leave you helpless for too long and will set you back on the often perilous road to conquest and glory.
You are courageous, frank, enthusiastic, dynamic, fast, bold, expansive, warm, impulsive, adventurous, intrepid, warlike, competitive, but also naive, domineering, self-centred, impatient, rash, thoughtless, blundering, childish, quick-tempered, daring or primitive.
Foods you like are the hot and spicy ingredients, leeks, onions, shallots, various spices and aromatics; mustard, capers, Cayenne pepper and chillies.
In the body: Aries governs the head.
