Aries is the first of the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac.
Of the four natural elements represented by the zodiac symbols (air, earth, fire and water), Aries is a fire sign and its astrological symbol is represented by the constellation of the ram. Those born under the sign of the ram are known to be energetic, adventurous, dynamic and impulsive.
Let's take a closer look at these Aries characteristics.
In astrology, each zodiac sign is assigned one of three modes: cardinal, fixed or mutable. The modality of a sign helps us to understand how people express themselves best. Aries' modality is cardinal. People born with a cardinal modality are known to be traditional, reasonable and natural leaders.
Beyond their incredible leadership skills, Aries have a number of great characteristics. These are the most important Aries traits to know.
With a zodiac sign ruled by Mars, the god of war, it's no surprise that Aries are known for being brave and tenacious. Aries signs are pioneers... they are the ones who are called to boldly go where no one has gone before. Their fearlessness and bravery make them the ideal people to try new experiences, take big risks and break new ground.
The fire element of Aries is responsible for their energetic nature, passion and creativity. Being first in the zodiac means that people born under this sign are not tied down with worries about the past. An Aries is full of unbridled optimism and hope, which makes them very generous and eager to help those in need, just so they can put a smile on people's faces.
As Aries are always ready for battle, those born under this sign can have quite a temper. Although it will fade quickly, Arians still need time to come down from their outbursts. Stay away until they do, or else you could find yourself the target of their fury.
The energy and courage that make Aries a great leader can be dangerous when combined with blind optimism. An Aries will play to win, but will not always take the time to assess the risks and turbulence they might face in a given task.
The same courage that allows an Aries to take on a new situation or task can turn into recklessness if not channelled correctly. Because Aries do not think through the consequences of their actions, they often end up feeling overwhelmed and learning lessons the hard way when things do not go as expected.
Finally, Aries signs are known for being overly competitive and see everything as if it were a fierce fight to the death. So be prepared for the wrath of an Aries who is about to lose.
Aries may be a fickle sign, but they are certainly fun, energetic and magnanimous people who can make excellent friends, partners and colleagues. Here's a look at some of the most prominent Aries characteristics in romantic, platonic and professional relationships.
That fiery element comes through in a big moment with an Aries in love. In relationships, Arians are not afraid to jump in head first and are definitely not shy about expressing their feelings. Their fearlessness means they can be very romantic and passionate without worrying about the consequences. If you are not used to such boldness, having a relationship with an Aries sign can be quite a shock.
That said, an Aries in love can be a wonderful thing. Given their sense of adventure and willingness to take risks, you'll never get bored dating an Aries. And since they tend to be very outspoken, you will most likely never have to worry about your situation with a ram.
In short: if an Aries asks you to be their date to the school dance, say yes!

Aries are very loyal to family and friends, even if they are not always close on a regular basis. But Aries' more fiery traits can sometimes make it difficult to maintain stability in their relationships.
In families, Aries children are known to be active and assertive, traits that can cause them to clash with their peers and exhaust their parents. Therefore, parents of Aries youngsters should learn early on how to discipline and deal effectively with their children's tantrums and rebellious nature.
As parents, Aries are loving, selfless and devoted to their children; however, they can also be overly protective and quick to punish.
When it comes to friendship, it's easy for an Aries to make lots of friends. That said, Rams won't bother clinging to friends who don't respect them (or others). They also like constant stimulation and spontaneity in their friendships, and if those needs are not met, they will move on and start looking for new people to hang out with.

When it comes to the workplace, an Aries' natural leadership skills can be a great asset. These are the people who will take on a new project with infectious enthusiasm. Their innate intelligence and quick thinking make them the kind of people you can trust to handle any hiccups along the way.
Aries people are also great at team dynamics. They are full of a spontaneity that can keep the workday from becoming tedious and help bring shy co-workers out of their shell. Their generosity and willingness to help others makes them approachable.
Although outspoken Aries may lack a little tact at times, their optimism and ability to take the team to new heights will more than make up for it.

Being a leader, being the first, is often important for those born under this sign. If you are an Aries, you could try to put these leadership skills to good use by joining a school club or sports team. For example, if you are really good at a certain sport, you could try to play it at university as well. Your teammates will benefit from your enthusiasm and drive, and you will have a structured environment in which to thrive.
If sports aren't your thing, try volunteering somewhere. Your innate generosity and optimism will be a great fit for organisations that need good people who are willing to help. Check out these examples of community service projects for ideas of places you could volunteer.
Since Aries tend to be temperamental, it is recommended that you work hard to find ways to calm yourself and control your anger. Meditation, breathing and yoga are some of the options you have to gain control of your quick fuse and learn to stay calm in difficult situations.
If you are friends or partners with an Aries, try to let them take the lead in planning an activity or date. The adventurous Aries wants to know that you can keep up with them, so remember to keep an open and flexible mind - who knows what magic you'll find!
Since Aries are so altruistic, it will be easy for you to meet one through a volunteer activity.
Games and sports are also a fun way to get an Aries excited (but watch out for their competitive streak!). This zodiac sign has a lot of energy to expend and is willing to try almost anything, so don't be afraid to invite them to participate in a friendly competition.
