Facts about Aries
Symbol: The Ram
Ruling Planet: Mars
Aries: The Ram
The Aries symbol is the Ram which is prominently featured in Greek mythology. Throughout history, rams were often symbols of leadership. While roaming the wild, they butt heads with their enemies just as Aries natives are thought to approach life head-on.
The horn of the ram symbolizes the cornucopia which traditionally stands for abundance. Just as the ram butts heads with their enemies, they are known for bringing abundance wherever they travel.
Just as rams, Aries natives are said to be pioneers – taking life by the horns.
Aries Element: Fire
Headstrong and fiery through all of their endeavors, the dominant Aries element is fire. Be cautious of burning others around you as you pursue your goals and be sure to tame your temper when obstacles arise. The same power that fire has to quickly spread and blast through obstacles is also it’s biggest weakness to those around it.
Aries Ruling Planet: Mars
Named after the Roman god of war, Mars is more commonly known as the “Red Planet”. Mars is typically seen as aggressive and responsible for war, destruction, and fights. However, this raw energy can be powerful if channeled in conductive ways.
Depending on the dignity and aspects it makes, Mars gives Aries natives the energy and focus to achieve their goals. It can come at a cost though – if Mars is weak, this tends to bring out the more negative energy and can lead to destructive or self-destructive behavior.
