When is Aries Born?

In astrology, Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is considered to govern the period from about March 21st to April 20th. The ram represents Aries, and its element is Fire, which is unsurprising given that some of Aries’s most common characteristics are high energy and a fiery temper.

Typical Aries Characteristics

According to New York-based astrologer Aliza Kelly, you can spot the Aries in your life by their loud, proud, and confident nature, not to mention their impatience and impulsive behavior, since they tend to act before thinking things through.

They can also be quick-tempered and tend to lash out when they feel frustrated. So you might want to run and take cover.

With all their confidence, Aries is assertive and not afraid to take charge, which makes them great leaders whose cheerful disposition and optimism enable them to get people on board.

If you have an Aries in your life or work with one, then you’ll be no stranger to the Aries’s strong competitive streak. They enjoy taking on challenges and winning, and they can be highly motivated by the desire to be the best at what they do.

Being risk-takers, many Aries enjoy living on the edge and are willing to take chances and try new things without worrying too much about the consequences.

And as the ram, Aries is not short on courage. They’re always armed and ready for anything, whether that’s a battle or a fun adventure.

Aries Work Styles

When it comes to their work style, like in all things, Aries has an uncomplicated and direct approach. Preferring to get to the point, Aries will quickly get frustrated by exhaustive details and what they may see as unnecessary nuances.

If you have an Aries on your team, consider delegating that detailed report or long PowerPoint presentation to someone else!

But what Aries lacks in patience, they make up for in their ability to remain optimistic, even when faced with challenges that might cause other team members to give up. And it’s this passion and fierce determination that makes them someone you want on your team.

A relaxed work environment is the order of the day. Since Aries value their independence and freedom so much, they may feel restless or stifled in situations or environments where they feel controlled or limited.

Aries Weaknesses

While honesty and directness can be strengths of an Aries, they can also be weaknesses. This brazen directness and honesty mean Aries will often speak their mind with no filter!

Something that doesn’t always go down well.

And while confidence is a trait many of us would be happy to have more of, for some Aries, their confidence can be to the point of arrogance.

Because Aries is so impatient and easily bored, they can quickly lose interest in things, which doesn’t bode well for detailed discussions or long-term projects!

It can also lead to communication challenges when Aries works with those with a steadier approach to things and a less energetic style.

With their impatience and short temper, they are one to watch!

Aries Strengths

Aries’s competitive spirit and desire to win means they often do win. And even when they don’t, their upbeat and optimistic view of the future means they can quickly bounce back from setbacks.

In fact, Aries often sees life as a game, not just any game, but a game they can win.

Their sense of adventure leads them to more experiences than most, and their passion and high energy can take them anywhere.
