The Astrological Sun Sign

The Astrological Sun Sign Aries GlyphWhen reading the Aries Personality Profile below, keep in mind that it is a generalization of the various influences at work during the time The Sun was passing through that Sign of the Zodiac.

When the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the time of birth, are known, their influence can be further defined to add greater insight into the positive and negative effects they can produce.

In order to get this information, we recommend a Natal Chart be developed specifically for an individual. Real accuracy is only obtained by charting the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the precise month, day, time, city, or longitude and latitude, an individual was born.

This information provides an enlightening "specific" Personal Profile, which can be studied, referred to, and acted upon, throughout the individuals life.  

Aries Personality Profile

Aries Characteristics

Aries is the head sign of the Grand Man, or Microcosm. It is a cardinal, masculine, equi­noctial, and movable sign. It is the positive pole of the Fire Triplicity, governing the head and face. Its higher attributes are intuition and reason.

The Sun enters the sign each year on or about the 22nd of March, and departs from it on or about the 20th of April. The Sun on entering the sign should be given six days before coming into full touch and action with the influence of the sign. A person born between the dates of the 22nd and 28th of March would not receive the full results of the sign's individuality, as he would be born when The Sun was on the edge of the sign. This is known as "The Cusp." Its nature and impulses partake of the sign The Sun has just passed through and out from and the native will also partake of the attributes of the sign of the Zodiac in which The Moon is located at the time of birth.

Aries is called the sign of sacrifice. People born under Aries are usually very executive, earnest, and determined. They accomplish what they resolve to do against all opposition. They are leaders, and naturally dominate those about them. They are noble, generous, magnetic, pro­gressive, and have occult power and meta­physical tastes.

They are good schol­ars, are bright, genial, witty, and great talkers. They can always lead the con­versation into new and interesting paths, and are never at a loss to provide enter­tainment.

The genius of this sign is intuition, and silent electro-magnetic power by means of the hands. They reach their highest attainment through knowl­edge and the regenerative love-action of the heart. They love beauty, order, harmony, and elegant surroundings.

They should not be circumscribed when giving out their true work of genius. If these people are born when The Sun is well centered in Aries, they may attain the rhythmic swing of their regenerative centers, and there arises an electro­magnetic solar fluid which is so power­ful that it can be cast to a great dis­tance. In fact, there is only one other sign so strong in this direction, and that is Aquarius.

It is almost impossible to hide anything from an Aries individual who has recog­nized his or her power of intuition. For this reason those born under this sign develop quickly the gifts of the spirit. They are often excellent psychometrists, mind-readers, and spiritual comforters. They understand without words the especial trouble that is weighing upon the heart of a friend, and are frequently able to explain its cause and banish its effects. Their wills are so dominant, their sym­pathies so quick and kindly, and their clairvoyant power so marked, that they rarely ever fail in their work of minister­ing to the sorrowful. Sometimes their great regard for friends will apparently blind them to their friends' faults, but it is doubtful if those born under this sign are ever really unaware of such weaknesses. It is a rare exception, however, when they will admit them to others, al­though they are not usually reticent in speaking of the failings and eccentricities of those to whom they feel no necessity of loyalty.

The Aries man will never back out of a fight. Although he will not foolishly seek one, if compelled he will go in to win, and is always much disappointed if his side is beaten.

The Aries woman is not far behind her brother. Her friends, her favorites, are all in all, and the person who places them at a disadvantage will be dealt with in language that cannot easily be misconstrued.

The traits of Aries people often seem to contradict each other. They are not born patient, but with those they love they are sometimes patient to a fault. Theywill give of their money to those who aretoo lazy to work for themselves, and will accept excuses and explanations with apparent credulity, although they are seldom deceived.

The executive ability of those born under this sign is so marked that they can come to grief from an over­estimate of it. They may become inflated with success. This may develop a reckless­ness which can lead to loss, disaster, and possible nervous prostration.

The tendency of many of the Aries teachers, speakers, and writers is to give up everything to their work. This zeal can sacrifice health and usefulness, and spoil their beautiful inspirational powers. Many fine descriptive writers, novelists, and poets are found in this sign, and many excellent teachers.

The Aries person is often spare, strong, tall, quick, sharp of sight, of oval face and swarthy complexion, with large shoulders.

There are really two distinct person­alities born under the sign Aries; those who are short, and those who are tall and broad-shouldered. The former are much under the influence of the Moon and the planet Mars at the time of birth. They partake somewhat of the characteristics of the signs these two planets were in. These persons can be quite changeable, quick­tempered, aggrgavated when contradicted, and dislike being told of their faults. If they are not permitted to do their work in their own way they can become overly anxious and very likely lose all interest in the subject. Their stubbornness is the result of the intensity of their natures, and more of an appearance than a reality. These persons are usually very fortunate in business and money-getting.

The Aries people who are tall and broad-shouldered can be more silent, with a deep spiritual nature, and great occult power if they choose to develop it. They are very generous, and distinguished for their good works, but are not so fortu­nate in worldly affairs as those alluded to above.

Such a person, being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a Magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom."
