Aries Personality Characteristics in Astrology
Expressing an Arian’s Horoscope Traits in the Right Way for Success
As the first sign of the zodiac calendar an Aries should be impulsive, bringing new direction and instigating action and ideas – taking the lead and acting adventurously. In astrology it is important for anyone to exhibit the qualities of their sun sign.
The sun sign is all many people know of their horoscope, and in many ways is, it the most important part of it. It is the dominant side of the personality and where people get their energy and confidence, and where they find their fulfillment in life.
Unleash Aries Personality Traits
If someone does not express the qualities of their sun sign they will often find themselves lacking energy, confidence and a sense of inner completion or peace. It is by expressing the qualities of the sun — in this cases Aries’ enthusiasm, directness and instinctual impulsiveness — that they can get the vitality of the sun, as well as receiving a sense of fulfillment, into life.
One’s moon sign is the sign of their childhood and needs. The sun sign is what one grows into in adulthood. This growth should happen naturally, but if the sun’s energy is blocked it has to be consciously set free.
So, for an Aries, it is important to be pioneering, take the lead and be direct. It’s important for this sign to avoid over-thinking and this person must avoid being held back by others. For an Aries, it’s a significant disadvantage if they’re stifled or otherwise unable to express these traits.
Aries’ Personality Needs Direction
Since it is such a powerful sign it is also important for an Aries to have self-control and express their strengths in the right way. True, if Aries doesn’t act like an Aries, taking the lead and being free to be direct, they will often suffer from a lack of confidence, frustration, fear, or unleash their aggression in the wrong ways; but expressing these innate, impulsive qualities in a negative way can be just as detrimental, having a knock on negative affect on their own life and that of those around them – often those closest to them.
As a result of this risk, it is important for an Arian to find their purpose and aim to have a positive affect on the people and the world around them. Expressing their powerful, cardinal fire sign traits without any purpose or direction means this fire will be wild, burning oneself and the people around them.
With purpose however, they can be the confident leader they were born to be – with purpose behind their actions, an Arian’s directness suddenly has a direction behind it and they can achieve things faster than most other people would even consider possible.
Negatives of the Aries Personality Traits
When this balance of expressing Aries’ personality traits with purpose is achieved there are still a couple of things to watch out for for Aries. Specifically, Aries has a tendency not to follow through with things. As first sign of the zodiac they can innovate and initiate but all do often not finish what they start. It is important for an Aries to keep focus on what makes them such an exciting sign and not give up on that. Otherwise they risk falling into a person who is not as happy and fulfilled as they could be. In most cases, this person lacks confidence or they suffer from an inability to express their energy in the right ways.
Aries should be confident, direct and pioneer new ideas and ways of doing things; but they should also do it with clear purpose, aiming to have a positive effect on people, the world and themselves.
