The Zodiac sign of Aries the Ram 21st March – 19th April

Your Zodiac sign is Aries if you were born between 21st March and 19th April. If you were born on the first or the last date of Aries, then you may feel an affinity with the previous sign (Pisces), or the following sign (Taurus). This could well be to do with your Moon sign, or your actual Sun sign if the affinity is with the previous sign (see Precession of the Equinoxes).

The Aries character

Everyone knows when Aries walks into the room. This person will be striking to look at, will carry themselves well, have strong features, and will often have red, auburn, or chestnut hair. They will instantly want to join in any conversation they happen upon, either with a chatty remark, or with a strong opinion. The sign of Aries rules the head, and Aries likes to tackle situations, indeed life as a whole, head on, dealing with what they perceive, and often diving into confrontations, rather than thinking around the situation first. They can be hot-tempered individuals, often boiling over in response to a situation before they calm down. However, Aries is a vibrant, warm, and friendly personality, who will often dominate conversations, indeed, they love the sound of their own voice! They are usually physically active people, enjoying hot, sweaty sports, brisk walks, and anything involving heat. They are passionate lovers, and prefer being the chaser in love matters, but this will also depend on their Venus and Moon sign.

Cardinal, Positive Fire is the most outgoing of the Cardinal signs – the rushing, all-consuming Fire of infernos. They will push for what is best for them, and are always at the forefront of what is going on. They are often loud, boisterous, assertive, and competitive, but also upfront, open, honest, and lovable.


If you are Aries, then the above is just one aspect of your astrological make-up, as there are
many other signs which will influence you depending upon their position at the time of your
birth. The most important influence comes from your Moon sign.
