Arians (as those born under the sign of Aries are called) love freedom.  They know what they want and they are confident that they can achieve it through their own actions.  This extends to all elements of life, from work, to play to adventure to love.  However, they may become a little quick tempered if there is an obstacle getting in the way of what they want.

Aries subjects are courageous leaders with a genuine concern for those they command, being responsible people, it is rare that they will use their subordinates to obtain their own objectives as leaders, but occasionally it does happen. They do not make very good followers because they are too "take charge". They may be unwilling to obey or submit to directions for which they can see no reason, or with which they disagree.

They are much concerned with self, both positively and negatively - self-reliant but also self centered (sometimes) and concerned with their own personal advancement and physical satisfaction. Their immense energy makes them aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally, headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they feel themselves affronted.

As the first sign of the zodiac you are a natural born leader, and people often realize that when they meet you.  However, this can make it difficult for you to follow someone else, even if you think they may know what they are doing.

As a parent you are the most selfless parent in the entire zodiac.  You are willing to sacrifice any aspect of your own life so that your children may have a better life.  This is just one of many of life’s challenges that stir Aries into action to get the job done right.

Mentally Arians are intellectual and objective, but can be in rare situations bigoted and extremist in religion and politics. They are good champions of lost causes and last-ditch resistance. They are quick-witted but sometimes foolhardy and over optimistic, lacking thoroughness and the ability to evaluate difficulties in the undertakings into which they often rush impulsively. The great need of Aries natives is to exercise an iron self-control, to discipline the qualities and tendencies of their character to the advantage, not the detriment, of the society in which they move.
