Happy Birthday Aries - The Leader of the Pack!
Posted by Heather McConnell on 9th Mar 2022
If you were born between March 21st and April 22nd, you are under the Sun sign of Aries, the Ram. This constellation is named for the Greek myth of the ram’s Golden Fleece, which Jason and his crew of Argonauts fetched for King Pelias of Iolcus to cement his legitimacy and power as a ruler. Given this legend, it is not surprising that Aries are strong leaders.
A fire sign, along with Leo and Sagittarius, Aries has the drive, independence, and confidence to manage effectively, combined with a natural knack for organization. In both their personal and professional lives, Aries are extremely passionate and follow their dreams. However, their strong sense of internal motivation can sometimes turn into impatience or aggression, reflecting the influence of the warlike planet Mars.
In social settings, Aries are rays of sunshine, infusing the room with an extremely optimistic and enthusiastic energy. Aries approach their friends and family from a place of affection and openness; they are not afraid to show their loved ones how important they are.
Aries are very impulsive, which can lead to both positive spontaneity and negative, poorly thought-out decisions. Because of their highly emotional nature, Aries can be quick to lash out with anger or sadness, but their honesty about their feelings makes it easier for them to nurture strong relationships.
The Ram can teach something to everyone, regardless of their Sun sign. Check your birth chart to see where Aries might be located. Does Aries’ passion rule your love life through Venus, or lend ambition and self-discipline to your career in Saturn? However you connect with Aries, you can use crystals to welcome this constellation’s power into your life.
