Our delineation of the Aries horoscope follows a very logical method, based on ancient basic and archetypal principles. It's NOT about stereotypes.
Every zodiac sign is the result of the so-called Quadruplicities or Modes (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs) and Triplicities (related to the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth).
The Aries horoscope is based on the Cardinal Fireenergies:
The Cardinal principle is about acting (doing) and urges. It implies initiating activity and executing power. Cardinal is changing, disturbing and unsettling. Cardinals are the "do-ers" and initiators.
The Fire principle is about enthousiasm, spirit and a lively disposition. Its direction is upward and outward (the combustive state). It's hot and fast. It wants to give in an expansive way.
Blending cardinal fire into something tangible or material, you get the keyword of "the spark."
The main characteristics of the Sun (representing your self-expressing life force) in the cardinal fire sign Aries are:
a commanding and rather pushy (forceful) behavior (taking the lead)
wants to be the first and the fastest
selfish, a self-starter, self-confident, self-centred
a direct style, often too linear in manner and way of thinking
needs more perseverance
not always sensitive to others' feelings
a little rough, blunt and bold at times
wants to DO (for the sake of it)
lives and acts on (im)pulses, a little premature
sometimes 'innocent', immature in a certain way and naive
Aries is the most unsettling sign of the zodiac
Depending on your birth date, the Aries horoscope divides into the following three decanates:
