Aries, the Ram, is the first sign of the Western zodiac. Souls born from March 20 to April 19 are born under the constellation of Aries
Aries is a Cardinal sign. In the language of astrology this means Ariens are concerned with initiating change and setting things in motion. They are initiators! Cardinal signs are the most active and enterprising of the Zodiac. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) are more vigorous than Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) and Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces). Cardinal signs are very assertive, tough, and aggressive. They are natural leaders and have difficulty with taking orders.
Aries is a masculine (Yang, positive) sign meaning they are assertive, bold, expressive, and extrovert. Masculine signs include: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Aries element or quadruplicity is “Fire” meaning Ariens or Rams are energetic, creative, inspirational, motivational, aspiring, enthusiastic, and lively. However, they can be bold, domineering, rebellious, spontaneous, and hot-tempered. Fires signs include: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Aries corresponds to the First House or the Personality or Self House which deals with such things as the Self, self-image, incarnation, individuality, personal appearance. The First House deals with incarnation and individuality of the Soul in the new and present life incarnation.
The zodiac is a voyage through human experience through 12 departments of life (classified by the 12 signs of the Zodiac). “The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac represents the twelve lessons of human existence, the 12 qualities to be developed in the formation of the perfect man (and woman).” – Vera Stanley Alder
Ariens may be quick to anger (and clearly because of the Mars influence because the planet Mars is the ruler of Aries and thus impacts this sign) but they are always ready to forgive. Taurus people born within the first 5 days of Taurus (April 20-25) are Aries-Taurus cusp and thus will pick up tendencies, traits, and attributes of Aries. These people have Mars and Venus influence which makes them warlike and loving at the same time. Mars is responsible for war and battling and Venus for love and compassion.

Astrological Health Profile
In medical astrology, Aries governs the head, cerebral hemispheres of the brain, the face (minus the nose which is ruled by Scorpio), the upper jaw, and the eyes; and as such, Ariens are subject and prone to diseases, disorders, and complaints of these body parts and organs.
“The signs and planets have always been associated with different parts of the body with the organs within it. Modern astrology has attributed astrological associations to the more subtle organs, such as the endocrine system.” – Judy Hall
Ariens are prone to the following diseases, disorders, and complaints:
- Headaches (severe, migraines)
- Head Injuries
- Skin eruptions
- Psychiatric disturbances
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Nervous toothache
- Gum boils
- Hair lip
- So-called accidents
As Aries is the polarity or opposite sign of Libra, Ariens can pick up diseases, disorders, and complaints of Libra and are thus subject and prone to Libran health challenges. The same is true of all other signs. Each sign can pick up the negative of its polar or opposite sign.
For optimal health and well-being, Ariens need to avoid stress, eat a balanced and nutritious diet, rest regularly, and control their temper as irritation and agitation drains their energy.
All signs have a corresponding cell salt that a person born under the influence of the sign at birth, uses up more of the cell-salt than others not born under that sign, and as such, the first deficiency that occurs of the person in his or her internal laboratory is this cell-salt, also known as his or her “birth salt”, and the various symptoms of his or her ills can be traced primarily, not exclusively, to this depletion.
The cell-salt or birth salt of The Ram (Arien), known as the “brain-worker” is Potassium Phosphate. Potassium Phosphate nourishes the brain fluid and produces the highest rate of vibration in the human body. Ariens really need to take care of their head in general and their brain in particular.
