Who works from morning to evening,
And never likes to be outdone?
Whose walk is almost like a run??
It is the Arian!!
Aries is the
first sign of the zodiac, and is ruled by the Mars.
This represents offensive power and begins
at the spring equinox. In Aries we move from the potential to the actual;
from dormant to active participation. Desire, initiative, courage and
action are words which best describe Aries.
Openness, enthusiasm and individualism
are the main traits of the Arians. They
are outspoken, alert, quick to act and speak. They prefer to speak than
to listen. Arians are ambitious, with lots of drive and a strong will
to lead. They are poor followers. Fiercely independent, they usually
take the side of the underdog in any controversy. They are champions
of lost causes and losing battles. This trait is due to a strong belief
in their own abilities to turn any situation around.
Arian values are more intellectual
than spiritual. Primarily people of
action, they demonstrate little subtlety or cunningness. Frank and amiable,
they make quick decisions, and grasp ideas very quickly. They are also
quick to anger, Arians are known for their impatience, and are prone
to be arrogant.
Arians have a strong self image, the ability
to think fast and size up most situations in an instant. Arians
calculate risks with lightning speed and make decisions accordingly.
An adage that fits the Arian well is 'A straight line is the shortest
distance between two points'. Arians don't waste time and energy beating
around the bush, they come straight to the point, and leave the bodies
where they fall.
Arians are known to be
generous people. They give of their time, effort, money and sympathies.
They have both moral and physical courage and will give support to
anyone they believe is being treated unfairly, or to any cause they
deem worthy.They are creative, open hearted, and high spirited.
Main positive traits: Initiating,
pioneering, eager, courageous, independent, dynamic.
A high energy output is
cause for great anxiety in some Arians. Sometimes, this anxiety is
so intense and unmanageable that it becomes a cause to abandon a
venture out of fear of failure. They then redirect their energy
new. Another flaw in the Arian makeup is a fear of rejection. Rejection
is near the top of their list of fears. If the Arian is not certain
of acceptance, to avoid rejection, they do the rejecting first. The
best defense is a good offense.
Main negative traits :
Quick-tempered, violent, impatient, egotistical,
In their professions,
Arians need to take charge. The routine or monotonous was not meant
for them. Their originality, imagination and great mental and physical
energy require work where their can utilize all of these traits.
They prefer to work on their own or direct others. They can communicate
and form public opinion. Journalism,
publicity, advertising, publishing, radio and TV are
natural professions for them to prevail in.
The military is
another field that is ripe for Arians with its many leadership possibilities.
Law enforcement is
another commanding vocation that is attractive to Arians. In a similar
capacity Aries make excellent surgeons and surgical nurses. In the
arts and entertainment field, Arians also do very well. They are
endowed with so many valuable assets; a keen intellect, initiative,
intuition, inventiveness, energy, leadership qualities and enthusiasm
that they'll shine in any profession that they set their sights
Diamonds are the lucky stones
of the Arians.

Advise for the Arian
Arians have to watch their
impatience, lack of thrift, and a domineering attitude. Their ego
also requires more than a fair share of continual approval and acclaim.
Arians thrive on challenge, and they truly believe they can do anything
- so they have a tendency to bite off more than they can chew. Acquiring
patience, persistence and perseverance will go a long way in helping
them to make the most advantage of their great gifts.
Origins in Mythology
Throughout the ancient Mediterranean region, the Ram figure was
associated with the constellation Aries or Arietis. Ares
was the Greek god of war and pestilence. He was the son of Zeus
and Hera, consort of Aphrodite. The Romans associated Ares with
Mars, the enemy of the tyrants and defender of the just. Originally
an agricultural god associated with the affairs of spring, Mars
assimilated many of the characteristics of Ares since battles
were often coordinated at this same time of year. The son of Nepele,
Phrixus, was falsely accused of ravishing Biadice. For this, he
was condemned to death, but was rescued by a golden ram, sent
by the god Mercury. Phrixus escaped safely, and at the ram's request,
sacrificed the animal to the god Zeus to honor the initial offering.
For his courage, the ram's likeness was set into the heavens.
