Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This is one of the most easily recognizable of star signs. The Ram that symbolizes the Aries sign is an apt choice – as many people born under this sign are forward-thinking and energetic. They’re not afraid to put their point across, and they are possessed of a natural vitality.
This is a Fire sign. It makes sense that that Arians can be some of the most passionate people out there. They are often determined, and when they set their minds on something, they burn with a desire to complete it. Whatever their goals are, they will intensely follow them.
The constellation of Aries is located in the Northern Hemisphere. It has long been used as part of navigation, as sailors would use the steady location of the three bright stars within it to confirm their position and direction. This sign has long been associated with the Golden Fleece legend, and its character is partially informed by that great and heroic tale of Jason and the Argonauts. That seems more than fitting for a sign that suggests bravery and boldness among those born under it.
