What is triple Aries in astrology?

Simply stated, a triple Aries in astrology is when an individual has an Aries Sun, and Aries Moon, and their Ascendant sits in Aries, making them an Aries rising. If you are an Aries rising, how may these different Aries components shape your life?

Your Sun

Your Sun represents your ego, what makes you feel alive in the world, and your purpose. It is the core of who you are and how you shine.

With your Sun in Aries, the foundation of who you are is set on courage and intensity. You may have the drive to stake your claim in the world, push yourself in whatever direction you want to go, and plant your flag.

An Aries Sun is assertive and adventurous, but can also be warm and optimistic. You may be a “what you see is what you get” kind of person, not afraid to show the world who you really are. And if you want something you aren’t shy about going after it.

Independence is the name of the game for Aries. With your Sun placed here, you may feel the most alive when you feel free to pursue whatever passions you want to chase or mountains you want to climb, figuratively or literally. And it may be important to you that you are able to jump into these endeavors with both feet and push yourself to your limits.

Your Moon

In astrology, your Moon symbolizes the emotional parts of your psyche. This is how you process and express emotions, what triggers you and how you react.

With your Moon sitting in Aries, your emotions may come on fast and hot but then fade as quickly as they came. Aries is an intense and passionate sign and this may shine through in your emotions.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are triggered easily, however, and may be able to withstand a lot of emotional stress before the floodgates burst.

But, with an Aries Moon, your emotions may not be overly complex. You may not wrestle with how your feel or how you should react to your emotions. Your feelings may just come, you let them out, and you move on. With an Aries Moon, you may find no need to complicate things!

Your Ascendant

Being triple Aries means that your rising sign is also Aries, your Ascendant lies in Aries. Your Ascendant describes the version of yourself that you walk around with every day. This is the side of yourself that you use to interact with the world.

Some astrologers call this the “mask” you wear. Your Ascendant is how other people may describe you, or the general vibe you give off. It also describes how you generally perceive the world.

With an Aries Ascendant, you may come off as independent, ambitious, and maybe even a bit impulsive. Others may think twice before competing with you for anything because they know that if it is something you want, you won’t give up.

People also may see you as a leader, someone who has the courage and heart to go after something important to them, and who is resilient enough that they won’t back down easily.

Being an Aries rising, you may see the world as a place where following your own path is usually best. You may also always feel like you have to have your guard up and be ready for anything, even if you haven’t really been given much of a reason to feel that way.

Strong fire element

Aries is a fire element sign, and being a triple Aries, you have your fair share of fire!

The fire element is marked by healthy doses of enthusiasm and confidence. This warm element brings the passion and excitement. It is “bigger than life,” lively, and fun-loving.

This spontaneous element influences great leaders who inspire others to follow with their optimism and bravery.

Strong cardinal mode

The modes in astrology describe the way in which people naturally take action or adapt. Aries is of the cardinal mode which is the energy that gets things started. With triple Aries, you may be quite the self-starter, indeed.

Cardinal mode is not one that prefers to sit around and think about things too much. If there is something to be done it makes a decision and goes with it. This is a proactive and ambitious energy that is itching to get moving.

Importance of Mars in your chart

The ruler of Aries is Mars so this planet will play an extra important role in your chart due to its strong influence on your Sun and Moon, as well as the fact that since you are an Aries rising, it also acts as your chart ruler.

As a triple Aries, you will want to pay close attention to the sign of Mars in your chart as its position will help to shape and bring more dimension to your personality. Take note of any planets that may be in aspect with it, as well.

Also, being such an important planet in your chart, the house that your Mars inhabits may play a vital role in your life as well. Wherever it sits could offer insights as to areas of your life that will play important parts in your personal growth.

Being a triple Aries can bring with it plenty of fantastic qualities.

  • Courage-Aries brings bravery under fire. With triple Aries, you may have the will to look whatever life throws you in the eye and not even flinch.
  • Resilience-Just because Aries is courageous doesn’t mean it won’t get knocked down from time to time. But, with so much Aries energy you may be able to easily pick yourself up and move forward.
  • Warm Heart-With the fire element burning so strong in your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant, you may have the ability to warm people when they need a boost.
  • Independent-Needy is not a word I would choose to describe triple Aries. You may be perfectly capable of standing on your own two feet and can keep your own counsel.

Triple Aries Challenges

Just because you are a triple Aries doesn’t mean that you automatically come with the struggles listed below. But, they are things to be watchful of.

  • Impulsivity-In order to be brave and jump into a battle, it may help not to think too much about it first. For triple Aries, impulsive behaviors, thinking before acting, may pop up from time to time.
  • Aggression-For Aries, protecting or going after what’s theirs means being ready for a fight. But, sometimes no fight is needed. With so much Aries energy, watch out for bringing aggression to a situation where none is actually needed.
  • Selfishness-Aries is all about asserting its own needs and wants. There is nothing wrong with this until perspective is lost and the need and wants of others is ignored. With triple Aries, being a bit self-centered at times could be a pitfall to watch for.
  • Arrogance-For someone to act with courage, they need to have a flash of confidence, and Aries comes equipped with plenty of it. Having an Aries Sun, Moon and rising sign could bring with it so much self-pride at times that it could turn into being egotistical.
  • Impatient-Aries craves action and waiting around is not this sign’s cup of tea. With triple Aries, you may need to work extra hard on patience, not something that comes naturally to Aries but something that can definitely come in handy from time to time.
