Can anyone ever possibly be too confident, too sure of themselves and their opinions? It seems that some people might think that of the Aries born individual. But not you! You believe that there can never be enough self-assurance or inner strength to propel you through life, and this is exactly how you choose to live—on your own terms, hard and fast—just like your ruling planet, Mars, the God of war.
To you the journey of life is not for the fainthearted or for those who wouldn’t actively seek what is on offer. Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest is probably the underlying theme of your character, even if you haven’t studied the evolution of humankind. You instinctively feel that to get ahead you have to take the first step, and boldly take on the role of the leader.
You understand that the law of the jungle is eat or be eaten, which is why you’re mistaken for being a little arrogant and aggressive at times. What do you say about that, Aries? We should set the record straight right here and now. This is mostly a front because behind the fiery mask of your hot and daring character rests a warm and caring spirit.
Friends and lovers who are less superficial than most quickly get to know the real you and, even if from time to time you still annoy them with your ‘me-first-I’m-definitely-right’ attitude, it’s impossible not to love you. This is because you have the knack of making up for any of your imperfections by being truly enthusiastic and inspiring in everything you do.
You are fearless and this inspires others. It’s occasionally hard to tell whether your courage is bravery or simply rash and impulsive hot-headedness. You love to take on the role of leader and, if you were in a shipwreck or survival situation, it’s likely you’d be the first to throw your hat in the ring for the leader’s role to lead the other survivors to safety.
First and foremost in whatever you do, you crave the element of competitiveness. It’s probably true that if the adventure and excitement of the chase wasn’t part of the process, the goal wouldn’t seem quite as alluring to you. It’s the thrill of the journey that attracts you, Aries.
You like to express yourself with absolute honesty and hate any type of pretence. You prefer to not make a friend than play the game of flattery. This is a double-edged sword because most people can’t handle your brutal style of honesty. You couldn’t care less. They can take you or leave you.
You detest being told what to do so you should preferably work where you are your own boss. You like to be the decision maker and creator of your own destiny. You know that this is a fiery path but feel comfortable with the fact that on your own terms you can become whatever you choose. It would be a mistake for Aries to take a submissive role anywhere. It just isn’t in your nature to do so.
Achieving your goals is important to you. You know exactly what you want, and have no problem going after it. Your style is brisk, edgy and uncompromising. People who associate with you soon learn that they have to keep up: if they don’t, they’ll soon fall by the wayside.
You are impatient when it comes to waiting around for things to happen. There’s no dragging your feet on ‘Planet Aries’ because you kick laziness into the kerb at every opportunity. You tackle life with zeal and enthusiasm and want others to move at your same fast pace. They should be prepared for a hectic and relentless velocity. Give them a seat belt for the cosmic ride with you!
It’s quite okay to be pushy from time to time, but don’t make it a habit. Come up for air occasionally to see whether your crew isn’t swimming in waters out of their depth. Don’t automatically assume others can handle the pace you set. This can make it hard for you to be at your best in a team environment, when some people misread your focus as insensitivity or discourtesy. Make an effort to help them keep up with you, and you’ll have more friends with whom to share your journey.
