1. Courageous

Due to Mars’ influence as its ruling planet, Aries is generally considered the bravest sign in the Zodiac. Mars is a sign of action, lending Aries the ability to jump into stressful or even dangerous situations without letting thoughts get in the way. If Aries sees a problem, it reacts, full of adrenaline and without overthinking or hesitation. Aries is the iconic movie hero that courageously runs into a burning building to save others without worrying about its own safety.

2. Adventurous

Because Mars inspires Aries to be courageous, the planet encourages the sign to seek out situations to test its bravery. One way Aries can get the rush it needs is through adventures. This sign is ready and willing to see what lies at the top of that mountain and then zipline down. Life is rarely boring with Aries as it is always looking for new things to experience.

3. Independent

Aries is here to assert its presence in the world. In order to do this, it needs to be independent and free to do as it pleases. This is not a sign that will come off as “needy” or that will seem clingy in relationships. Rather, Aries is self-sufficient and takes pride in taking care of itself. It isn’t that Aries wouldn’t want to help you solve your problem, it just might not ask for your advice or help in return.

4. Passionate

Aries’ fire element lends the sign a healthy dose of fiery passion. This makes Aries an intense, vigorous sign that can light up the room. Aries doesn’t do things in a small or meek way. Aries expresses its excitement, anger, and inspiration in a way that shines brightly for all to see. The intense passion in Aries has the potential to inspire others, as well. This sign can be very animated and can’t contain its zeal for life.

5. Honest

Being trustworthy is important to Aries and this is a sign that would never dream of bending the truth or tarnishing its honor by telling lies. Aries can be counted on to be honest. This is a sign that would rather take its consequences up front than try to wriggle out of them by being dishonest. Also, Aries can be counted on to tell it like it is. Although this may not always be appreciated, it is nice to have someone in your life that you know will always tell you the truth, even when it isn’t complimentary or you don’t want to hear it, and Aries fits that bill.

6. Enthusiastic

Passionate Aries allows itself to get excited about things and to shine that excitement to the world. When something makes it happy, Aries may talk a mile a minute with a huge smile, its entire face lit up. When Aries is charged up, this won’t be a secret to anyone around it. Aries’ enthusiasm is contagious, however, and it has the ability to excite others with its uncontainable enthusiasm.

Looking for someone to go with you to a concert, on a trip, or dirt biking in the sand dunes, but you’re leaving in less than an hour? Aries may be the sign you’re looking for. Boredom and familiarity are things that Aries struggles with, but last-minute experiences offer Aries some fun, a rush, or an adventure!

8. Assertive

Because Aries’ ruling planet is Mars, the planet of battles and ambition, this is a sign that will stand up for itself. Aries is not one to back down, not from a fight, and not from something it wants.

It is going to go after it with everything its got. No one will question Aries’ intentions because it will make it known to one and all.

9. Warm Hearted

Aries isn’t all fight and aggression, however. Not at all! The fire element warms the heart of its signs, giving Aries a kind and gentle demeanor. This, of course, is not necessarily true when Aries is in any kind of competition, but otherwise, Aries can be tender and helpful. When someone is sad, even if it doesn’t know the right words to say to make the person feel better, Aries is ready to offer a big hug to comfort them. This warrior has a very warm heart underneath its armor.

10. Authentic

Personal identity is incredibly important to Aries. Because of this, Aries is a very “what you see is what you get” sign. It isn’t an overly complicated sign where you have to wonder what it is thinking. You never have to guess what Aries is really thinking or feeling because direct Aries will make it clear. It also isn’t going to act like something it isn’t. Aries isn’t going to behave one way around one group and then act differently to “blend in” with another. This sign is always true to itself and never pretends to be someone it is not.

11. Optimistic

Aries always thinks that things are going to work out for the best. Things may look gloomy or grim, but Aries has faith that everything will be ok in the end. The people in Aries’ circle may also see life in a more rosy way because of Aries’ influence.

12. Energetic

Aries has the combination of the fire element, influence from chart ruler, Mars, and also is of the cardinal modality. Add those together and you’ve got a sign that is always ready for action!

Whether you need another person for your sand volleyball team or someone to help you move a couch up the stairs, Aries may be the sign for you!

Because this is a sign that jumps headfirst into situations and gives it everything they’ve got, there are going to be times when Aries gets knocked down. Fortunately, Aries also comes with a resilient spirit, so even if it falls, it hops back up and tries again. Aries has optimism in life and also in itself and its own abilities.

14. Unbreakable Will

When Aries puts its mind to something, it will be very difficult to persuade it otherwise. Aries is able to endure a great deal of hardship, pain, sweat, and tears to come out victorious. Giving up is not an option, however. This sign has the heart of a true warrior and will leave everything it has on the battlefield, whether that happens to be an actual battlefield, basketball court, or boardroom.
