Aries Sun and Ascendant
Via Astro 123
Sun in Aries
Aries natives can be inspirational, courageous, enthusiastic, original, independent, impatient, aggressive, headstrong, selfish, self-centered, and impulsive. The Arian’s energies are directed toward building a new individuality, thus all the Arian’s energies are directed towards them self and what they want.
An Arian likes role where their leadership abilities are put on display. Arians have executive and organizing ability which is mainly directed in starting things. Sustaining projects is not their strength, but initiating projects is. The tendency to “damn the torpedoes” and ram full-speed ahead must be controlled. Arians are capable of great accomplishments if they learn how to constructively use their abundant energies.
Aries are naturally enthusiastic and are always ready for activity and competition. They are inspiring to others because of these tendencies. Ideas and creative projects seem to flow from them in a never-ending stream. They are full of energy and never lack courage.
Because Aries can be pretty self-centered, they must remember that other people may have good ideas and can assume responsibility and leadership roles, too. The natural tendency for an Arian is to stand alone and do everything themselves. But cooperation with others can be very effective in getting things done to the end rather than simply starting things and quitting before completion. Arians have a tendency to start a project, then to suddenly lose interest in it if progress is too slow or things have become too complicated.
Aries are very straight-forward and are neither subtle nor devious. They say what’s on their mind and they pull no punches. They don’t hold grudges and although they can get quite angry, they do not hold it in and stew about what bothers them. They blow in and out like some great thunderstorm. It may be violent while it lasts, but it is usually over quickly.
Aries are prone to headaches due to tension. Arians are usually aggressive in relationships and generally take the lead. They go after what interests them and the chase may be more fun for them than the conquest.
Four things an Arian should learn are patience, conservation of energy, completion, and control of temper.
People with Aries rising tend to be energetic, pioneering, rash, argumentative, selfish, impulsive, quick-tempered, aggressive, assertive, headstrong, independent, alert, mechanically-inclined, physically active, self-promoting, self-centered in an unthinking way, and more thoughtless than mean. You have a general dislike for restraint of any kind, don’t like to be told what to do, need to learn diplomacy and tact, need to look before leaping, need to better learn how to channel your energies for more constructive purposes and results. Like the ram who symbolizes this sign, you tend to butt your head against your problems hoping that with enough force you can eventually knock down whatever stands before you, including people. You like the challenges of life and are very competitive and sometimes combative. You get bored easily with routine and one thing you may need to practice more of his persistence. You tend to jump from one thing to another, always looking for something new. Finish what you start before moving on. Spiritual lesson to learn: Patience. Mars rules Aries, so Mars will be important in your chart.
