Aries: Your Ultimate Guide To Understanding The Zodiac Sign
Ruling Planet Is Mars
Aries is ruled by the intense, competitive, and courageous Mars, and they tackle life with a war-like spirit. Mars ensures this sign is always active, intense, driven, and passionate, so don’t be surprised when your Aries friend is a passionate activist or is quick to defend themselves when criticized.
Fire Element
Aries is a fire sign, so they embody the strength of the fire incredibly poignantly, meaning they are always ready to forge ahead with new opportunities and ideas. Fire is a symptom of strength and newness, so once Aries have set their mind to something, nothing can stop them.
They Love Competition
Aries is one of the most competitive zodiac signs, even when the stakes are low or it's all in the name of fun. Aries get a strong sense of personal accomplishment when they've proven themselves the best at something; so if you want to go the extra mile for an Aries loved one help them celebrate their personal successes.
They’re Independent
Aries do not typically go with the flow because they’re always moving and trying new things. Their independence can sometimes be considered a strength and weakness, and if you find it difficult to make plans with an Aires, don’t take it personally.
Tarot Card
Each sign has a ruling tarot card, and Aries is ruled by The Emperor card which represents strength, power, and ambition. The Emperor tells us that Aries are natural-born leaders once they can slow down enough to let wisdom take precedence over feeling.
