AriesThis post is entirely dedicated to Aries and to the beginning of the solar astrology year. Aries is the first sign and that means this is the beginning for everybody. Actually this is also the start of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when we plant seeds; this is when we ought to make plans.

As every year, on the 20th of March, the Sun entered Aries and that means a new astrological year.

Making predictions that are based on beginnings is what astrology is all about. The whole system is based on moments of beginning.

Moments in time, like seeds in the garden, contain the prescription for what they will become. Plan and prepare at this time because now we have the aspect in the sky that encourages us to do so. As the quote goes:

“Lay the tracks and the train will come”.

Nature and life may have its way of surprising us, but that is why astrology can serve as a guide to all our efforts to undertake new beginnings.



is the first sign of the zodiac, the leader, the new born babies of the zodiac coming out into the world kicking and screaming! They have to be the first, the best and the biggest. These folks are so sharply focused on their goals, it’s incredible. They work best as their own boss. Always happy to be around friends and family, they are very good with connections!

Aries desperately want to shine and be respected for representing the top of their field. They need absolute freedom to fly where they want. Aries are usually high achievers, but they burn very quickly and they probably don’t have the determination to finish what they started or what they put their minds to. This is a fire sign and their main characteristic is: They Burn!

They are sarcastic and can be bitter in their criticism. Aries is also known for being selfish, brash and impulsive.

Aries Women

My mother is Aries and I have some very dear friends that are born when the Sun was in Aries and I know what impulsiveness is all about.  If you know some Aries girls, please let me know if this description is correct. They are fiery and confident; they love to be right! They tends to be very fun loving and adventurous and people love that about them! They also tend to be very competitive! I recently wrote a highly appreciated post about Aries as a Mother. Click here to read it and please share if you  like it!

If you want to date her…hmm you’re in trouble and that is because she is usually the one who takes control and the one who decides. You have to be a very strong man to be by her side. As one of my friend said: “I need a bear, not a man”. Loving an Aries woman can be the most thrilling experience of your life. The best thing about her: she remains a child at heart!

The illustration for this post is done by Cristina Benescu, an Aries herself. She depicted the playfulness of the Aries woman! You can see more illustrations by Cristina here.

Aries Man

Aries Man: well…here is a topic you won’t resist as this man is sexy, loves to have fun, he is fiery, loves women and he will make you feel as the best living thing! The ideal Aries man combines rugged masculinity with urbane charm. He’s a man of extremes, whose loyalty is to himself first…so you just have to be very much inlove with him and forget that he is not that stable.

You must have energy to spare to keep up with an Aries man. He wants freedom and doesn’t like being tied down. He is full of surprises and excitement and hates monotony. An Aries man believes in true love and will constantly be in search of it. What I love about Aries is that this search may never end…

Thank you Cristina for the Aries illustration and thank you for reading !

One thought on “Love an Aries?

  • January 25, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    I’m an Aries woman, and the part of this with which I identify most is that it’s not possible to win me. I always picked my mates, not vice versa. I’m impulsive and like to have fun, but I’ve got a serious streak. People have told me to lighten up a lot in my life. I’ve always been much more serious than child-like. The idea of being child-like is actually a pretty big turn off for me. As far as strong men, strength of character is important, but I’m not looking for masculinity at all. My Sun is conjunct Mars and Venus, opposite Saturn conjunct Jupiter, and square Neptune. Also, Aries is intercepted. I’m Aquarius rising.
