The sign Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. Physically it is related to the head. It is said to have a masculine nature, and is therefore more penetrative in its energy. Aries is a Fire sign, and this means a planet placed here will have a need to manifest itself in a very dynamic manner, and that the expression of personal identity through action is important. The desire to come first is paramount, and this comes to expression with a naive effervescence and inexperienced innocence. It is a world of knights and princesses.
As Aries is also a Cardinal sign, its energy is manifested in dynamic bursts. Short-term goals are important and tangible results are achieved rapidly. People with a strong emphasis in this sign will have leadership and pioneer traits, though there is a tendency to impulsiveness and a short temper. Impatience and egocentricity need to be tempered, and greater awareness of the needs of others should be developed, if conflict and tension are to be avoided.
