Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents the birth of a new stage or situation, in an broad sense.

Because Aries represents the beginning of a new cycle and represents the birthing stage, it can be taken to include some of the themes associated with these stages.

Some of the other traits associated with Aries include: passionate; independent; unconsciously selfish; self-motivated, brave, deep down need to be liked, reliance on others seen as weakness; honest, short lived anger; lacking in persistence and stamina; tactless; unaware of others; easily bored; lacks strategy; highly strung; quick to rebound; and childlike innocence.
My experience of the Arian energy through my personal clients is that of needing to believe in whatever they are involved in, but they tend to get into trouble because of their natural need for adventure and jumping into situations before fully understanding the consequences of their actions. Even though they can get into some pretty tangled situations, their intentions are usually good. Psychologically, there is sometimes an issues involving the father that needs to be examined.
