The Personality Traits of an Aries
As with everyone, Aries are full of strengths and weaknesses; but many of these weaknesses can be made into strengths with just a little effort. Instinctively, an Aries may be impulsive, impatient and very stubborn; however, these can be used for good and help Aries to be excellent leaders. Furthermore, they are often highly successful people who do not let failure put them off; they thrive when challenged, and rarely back down from anything.
An Aries is full of ambition and they are normally extroverts. They will dive into anything that catches their attention and are not afraid of putting in a huge amount of hard work as they strive to achieve their goals.
There is no lack of energy in an Aries and they love to try new things; however, they have to be careful that this trait doesn’t distract them from their overarching goals.
Ultimately, this is quite rare as once an Aries has decided to do something, they will normally pursue it no matter what, with incredible determination. They are excellent at overcoming obstacles and are capable of finding innovative solutions to all manner of difficulties. They will not allow anything to stop them and approach each task with renewed vigour.
This also makes Aries extremely brave; they will not back away from the unknown and they are willing to take calculated risks in order to achieve results. Where others may hesitate, you can rely on an Aries to just get on with the task, and they will often produce some spectacular results.
Cleary, all of these traits make Aries very independent people who like to strike out on their own and have little time for those who may slow them down. If they feel like their independence is under threat, then they will ruthlessly remove that threat, even if it means stepping on a few toes along the way. Similarly, they avoid those who are too needy or who will try to control them in any way.
This does make Aries natural leaders and they are very happy to take on large amounts of responsibility. It is rare for an Aries to feel overburdened and often they can serve as excellent role models due to their dedication and sheer determination to do a job efficiently and effectively.
Many of these traits are typical of all Fire signs, who are able to bring masses of energy to everything they do. They can remain focused and keep working on a task for an extraordinary amount of time, meaning that they often achieve their goals much faster than those around them do. This also enables Aries to seize on every opportunity that comes their way. They thrive on all that life has to offer and will never say no to something that sounds exciting or enriching in any way.
All of this adds up to a fantastically positive view of the world and attitude to life. An Aries is full of optimism, definitely a person who sees the glass as half-full, not half-empty. Their drive and zest allow them to see the good in almost any situation. If they are faced with challenges or difficulties, they do not lose this positivity; rather they look to how they can overcome them and use them as extra fuel for their drive.
While all of these are fantastic traits, Aries need to be careful that they do not come across as overly stubborn. An Aries does not like being told what to do and would much rather find their own way. However, on occasion this will not be possible, so an Aries must try to be aware of this possibility and learn to work with others.
Furthermore, while the determination and passion for life that Aries possess are wonderful things, they have to be careful to take the time to think through their actions. An Aries will often dive into something without really considering the consequences, which can lead to problems later on. As such, it is not uncommon for an Aries to have major regrets.
An Aries also has to be careful of how they respond when they begin to feel boxed in. Independence and freedom are paramount to an Aries’ happiness, and if they feel it is in threat then they may become angry and rebellious. This can quickly get out of control, as they will fight to regain their freedom with everything they have.
Similarly, while there is nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition, an Aries may forget about the healthy part from time to time. They are so driven, always wanting to be first, win every competition, and achieve things before everyone else, that it can become a bit all consuming. An Aries has a tendency to view life as a competition that needs to be won, rather than as a collaborative effort that gives everyone the chance to succeed. As a result, an Aries may truly struggle when in a teamwork situation.
Furthermore, because Aries are so good at achieving their goals and will be well aware of their strengths, they have to be careful that they don’t come across as arrogant to others around them. They may unintentionally alienate their colleagues when all they mean to do is explain why they believe that they are best for a certain task.
As an extension of this, Aries will also have to learn to be patient, both with others and with processes that take time. An Aries always wants instant results, when quite simply, this is not always possible. When things are taking time, an Aries may become impatient, agitated and frustrated with whatever they perceive to be causing the delay.
On top of this, an Aries also thrives on attention and praise, and they will always be looking out for it. Recognition of a job well done is a large part of what motivates an Aries and if they do not receive it, then they may drift into attention seeking behaviour, which is actually counterproductive and destructive.
In short, being an Aries is all about finding a careful balance. Aries are blessed with many wonderful gifts that allows them to achieve great things. At the same time, they have to make an effort to be aware of how their behaviour may affect others and to be considerate at all times.
How Aries Treat Love and Relationships
As a Fire sign rules by Mars, it is no surprise that Aries are full of passion and have a sizzling temperament. They are a blend of confidence, a quick temper and irritability, which can make them very challenging partners indeed. In fact, most people who love an Aries will attempt to tame them, but it is almost impossible and likely doomed to fail.
Aries love to flirt and they are not afraid to take the initiative when it comes to romance. If someone catches their attention, they will be quick to make a move. However, that person will need to be full of energy if they are going to retain the Aries’ attention. Aries love adventure and trying new things, and they will need a partner who feels the same about life. As a result, it is not uncommon for an Aries to go from one whirlwind romance to another, as it is a challenge to find people who can maintain their pace.
Similar to this, an Aries has be careful not to dive too deeply too quickly and scare their partner away. They may shower love and affection, sometimes going too far and not really paying attention to the signals they receive in return. However, this is because when an Aries loves, they really love and want to make a relationship last for life.
Due to their fiery nature, an Aries may find themselves drawn to a Water sign. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) can help to calm the flames and provide an equally intense but different kind of passion. However, Aries may find the relationship stifling after a while as, to extend the metaphor, water will ultimately put out a fire. However, the relationship between the two can work, as long as each takes care not to overpower the other. If the Aries and the Water sign learn to communicate well and work together, then they can form a true bond that is respectful of the one another’s needs.
However, there are other signs that may be a better match for an Aries. For instance, Geminis are clever and adventurous people. They normally have very deep personalities that will keep Aries engaged while a Gemini will love an Aries’ zest for adventure. Alternatively, a Libra may be just what an Aries needs to reign them in and help them learn to look deeper into themselves, something that they will struggle to do on their own. Aries looking for real passion will respond well to Sagittarians. There is a good chance that the two will have some passionate fights, but with both signs being inherently honest, they should be able to find a way through. Counterintuitively, Aries and Taurus often have very successful relationships. An Aries may first see a Taurus as too tame and become frustrated with the way that they will carefully consider things before making a decision. However, if an Aries can look past that, then they may learn from the Taurus just how advantageous taking things slowly can be.
Aries’ Approach to Career and Money
Aries are likely to excel in whatever career they choose for themselves. They are naturally ambitious, creative thinkers, and incredibly driven to succeed and become the best at what they do. This works to Aries advantage as they are natural leaders, and will have little trouble climbing the career ladder to management positions. Once there, they will also find that people regularly look to them for advice as they respect their out the box thinking and ability to problem solve.
However, Aries need to be a little careful as they may find it a struggle to keep working on a project once it reaches its final stages. While they will thrive at the beginning and love tackling new problems, they are likely to become bored towards the end when the work becomes routine, and may have to call upon great self-discipline in order to see it through to the end.
Furthermore, Aries have to make sure that they do not allow their competitive nature to cause them problems at work. They should remember that they are part of a team and are not in direct competition with their colleagues. Aries can work extremely well on a team, as long as they remember that their teammates are there to help them reach their goals, not as a source of competition.
While an Aries will be well aware that it is best to save money for a rainy day, they are likely to find it very difficult to do so. This is because they are always seeking the new and exciting, so they are more inclined to spend their funds on shopping, nights out, gambling or playing the financial markets. Aries tend to live in the moment and struggle to plan for the future. However, because an Aries is driven and hardworking, they are unlikely to find themselves short of money for long, they just have to watch their tendency to spend it all as soon as it arrives.
It is hard to pick ideal careers for Aries, as they tend to thrive at whatever they set their mind to. With Mars as their ruling planet, they may be drawn to heroic roles, such as work with the emergency services or in the army. Alternatively, they could become lawyers thanks to their passionate and stubborn characters.
What is certain is that an Aries will not remain interested in a job that is too routine. They need continual change and stimulation otherwise they will quickly lose interest, become frustrated, and ultimately, unhappy.
How Aries Responds to Friends and Family
As naturally ambitious people who are eager to strike out on their own, Aries may move away from their immediate family at quite a young age. Furthermore, they can be quite difficult children who need to be showered with love and praise in order to form real attachments. Aries shy away from restrictions and they may feel that their family are keeping them on a leash. However, as long as they are treated with understanding, Aries will grow extremely close to their parents and siblings, and they will do all that they can for them.
Aries find friendships much easier to handle, as they are easier to control. They tend to have many friends and are always eager to meet new people and make more friends. When introduced to someone new, they will always be respectful and often present themselves as extremely open. As a result, an Aries will normally have a very diverse collection of friends who are able to take them in many different directions.
Aries are strong communicators who are direct and honest, which makes it easy for them to form new friendships. However, they do not appreciate dishonesty and will not hesitate to cut friendships short. Ultimately, their long-term friends are those who have a similar energy and passion for life. They will be looking for friends who are equally keen on new experiences rather than those who want to do the same things time and time again.
An Aries’ best friend is often a Libra. These is because they are just as passionate, but a bit more grounded and balanced. This means that they are able to prevent Aries going too far, but at the same time, they will appreciate the sense of adventure that comes with an Aries.
Despite their independent streak and need to keep moving, Aries can make fantastic friends. They are not in the slightest bit judgemental and are always willing to gain more life experience from others. They are highly spontaneous, which can make them a lot of fun to be around. Finally, they will never want to miss out on an opportunity, but are always happy to share new experiences with others.
Given that Aries are some of the most driven, goal-orientated people around, it is no surprise that there are many famous examples. Here is a quick look at some of the most famous Aries and the traits they display.
