Aries, the 1st sign of the Zodiac. Aries are pioneers, leaders, first in line to get things going even if they are not eventually done. Aries is known to initiate rather than to complete.
The possibilities of the dawn of a new day can be pure bliss to an Aries, whereas dynamism, charm, charisma, and a bundle of energy define this sign.
Furthermore, Aries’ zodiac symbol is the Ram, which goes back to Babylonian times when it was associated with agriculture and the god of shepherds. In Egyptian astronomy, the Ram’s association continued through the sun god Amon-Ra, who had a human form and a ram’s head, and ruled over fertility and creativity. Vital forces that set Spring and regeneration in motion. Also, in Greek mythology, the Ram saved Phrixus and Helle, whose golden fleece became the prize in the story of Jason and the Argonauts. The name Aries is derived from “Ares”, the Greek god of war.
Moreover, Aries season begins at the Spring Equinox, representing the renewal of growth, and its archetype is bursting with youthful enthusiasm, linked to the vital force of life reawakening after the long winter. As the 1st of the 4 cardinal signs, Aries starts the Spring, the source of the Ram’s affinity for being a fiery starter, leader, and trailblazer. Combined with the fire element, which is akin to the divine light of the stars and the vital life-giving rays of the sun, Ram’s affinity for inspiration, impulsivity, and assertiveness are kindled.
