Astrology Signs: Aries The First Sign

Updated on June 8, 2013

Astrological Sign Aries: March 21-April 19

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and also occurs on the first day of spring. Aries people are energetic, fun to be around and always seem to be responsible for people having a good time. You will often find many Aries people at parties full of energy and getting the party in full swing.

Aries always like to be first at everything from being in line to being first to discover something new and exciting. They have a strong egos and like to be recognized for their abilities and talents.

The ruling planet of Aries is Mars. Mars is fire and energy. The symbol of Aries is the Ram. When you think of the ram you can conjure a picture of someone butting heads. Well, sometimes Aries have been known to forge ahead without planning.

The color for Aries is fitting-Red and other shades of red to include pink, crimson and burgundy.

The gemstones are rubies and emeralds.

Three Decans for Each Zodiac Sign

In Astrology each sign is separated into three parts referred to as decans.

The first ten days of Aries: Ruled by Aries and the Planet Mars

The second 10 days of Aries: Ruled by Leo and the Sun

The third 10 days of Aries: Ruled by Sagittarius and Jupiter

If your birth took place during the first ten days of any sign you will display stronger traits of that particular sign.

The First Decan of Aries-March 21-March 30

If you were born during the first ten days of Aries you will display strong Aries characteristics. Being influenced by the planet Mars you are particularly headstrong and often speak out of turn. You are quick to anger but quick to forgive. You have the ability to get people motivated and excited about almost anything. Though you have a strong ego, hurting another individual is never a purposeful act. Patience is not one of your virtues, and when people react slowly you can jump on the bandwagon and show your displeasure.

Though very energetic, you do not always have a lot of endurance, but your enthusiasm makes up for this deficit. You can start many projects, but also lose enthusiasm before completing. You are your own best cheering section, and staying motivated is your biggest challenge.

March 31-April 9 Second Decan of Aries

If born between March 31-April 9 you have a strong influence from the zodiac sign of Leo and its ruler-The Sun. You have a sense of responsibility to yourself and others. Doing the right thing is important to you. You are not nearly as impetuous and forthcoming as other Aries people. Born with a strong ego and principles, you can accept most challenges in life with great spirit. Born during these dates, you are far more patient than other Aries, but you are armed with a strong ego. Sensitive and tender feelings are often part of this personality. However, rarely do you show that side of yourself. There is a strong need for approval from others and you often depend on that for your well being. Success in business is something you seem to accomplish easily, and you do have a gift for making people feel very important.

The third Decan of Aries -April 10-April 19

If you were born between these dates you have a strong influence from Sagittarius and its ruling planet of Jupiter. Oddly enough you are even more impetuous than the stronger Aries personality. You enjoy being original and first to come up with unique ideas in your personal life and business life. You are extremely independent, and in relationships your friends and partners need to understand this facet of your personality. You are a giving friend to a degree, but it has to work into your agenda, and are often happy taking off by yourself. You often feel that your personal philosophy is the way to go, and often do not listen to advice from others. You love travel and can often find yourself changing residence often. You are most definitely a fun person to be with, and people gravitate towards you with your never ending high spirit.

      An engaging hub! Here you described my father to a T. He was born on March 24th. Yes, he is extremely energetic and highly motivated. I like your suggestion that both of you and Suzie write a book about makeup for each zodiac sign. Cool idea! Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Useful & Interesting. Voted up

      Carol, it is so cool to learn about all this. My best friend is an Aries. She was born March 16th and is a highly motivated individual who loves to help others. She will often take off by herself to visit people less fortunate; sometimes to get groceries for them, other times just to listen. You nailed her traits to a 't'! No wonder you had your own show! Great stuff, my friend. Voted Up+ I always enjoy reading your informative hubs ;)

      Very interesting history! I had to laugh when I read your description of an Aries. You described my brother to the T! LOL His birthday is April 8th, and he most definitely is the life of the party.

      Votes and shares! :-)

      Very interesting info. Though right now, I'm not able to recollect anyone I know who's an Aries. But I gather from Suzie's comments that the description of a person born to this sign is spot on. Well done!

      I agree with Bill that you need to dive in your niche head on. Also, if this combination of diet, beauty and astrology works out it will create waves.
