The sun is exalted in this sign and Saturn is in detriment. As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, unrealized or lacking finesse, problems will arise.

Acquiring patience, persistence and perseverance will allow you to curb your blunt and aggressive nature and will allow you to move forward into life as the leader and champion you were born to be. You are quick to anger because your feelings and frustrations are so close to the surface. Arians are known for their anxiety and are prone to be presumptuous. You can be very careless and rush headlong into signing papers or pushing a project or agenda forward before it is ready or viable. Impulsive actions, decisions and fiery words can get you into trouble, so learn to slow down and think twice before you act or react. If you are not certain of acceptance, to avoid rejection, you do the rejecting first. Learn the art of looking before you leap. Determine the end goal first, then select the best course of action. Arians do not make very good followers because they are too "take charge". Make sure it is your place to lead before usurping the position of another. Take the initiative to support others in their leadership roles rather than undermining any potential threat to your own position of power. You need recognition of your independent abilities and this can cause you to be too direct, competitive and forceful, and sometimes this may antagonize others. Aries may strongly project their personalities onto others and can be very self-oriented. You will only gain more wisdom and leadership skills by seeing into others' personalities.

Career

Finding a career that will allow you to venture out, take risks and leave impressions on others is where you will shine. You have an excess of vitality and energy, so you prefer the challenge of meeting people and becoming involved with the business scene that is challenging day by day. You can make quick decisions, and grasp ideas very quickly. Endowed with courage and will, you can give support to anyone. Aries rules the Intellect. The Aries is best suited to any profession where you can use your higher intellectual faculties. Aries is also the leader who is aggressive and willing to assume responsibilities. You excel as an executive or boss in any line of endeavor. You have unique artistic and creative talents that can inspire others toward their own upliftment. Aries should avoid, dull, boring, routine work, or jobs where they are required to do the same thing hour after hour in monotonous and unimaginative work. You are an extreme optimist when it comes to money. You believe you will continue to have an inexhaustible supply of cash, so you do not mind spending it. Ensure that you are stable financially before retiring or leaping to a new adventure.

Physical

Sun in Aries people are natural athletes. At the very least, their natural inclination is to use their bodies to get things done. Mars ignites passion-to ambition, it brings drive and energy to the physical-self, it supplies stamina and strength. Aries governs the head and brain, and Arians are said to be prone to headaches, particularly migraines, sunstroke, neuralgia and depression. Indigestion and nervous disorders are also threats to you, and your impulsive nature, speed, drive and tendency to plunge headfirst make you liable to accidents and physical injuries.

Love
