Was that a speeding bullet, a fire-bomb, or a rocket? No, of course not, that was just your average ARIES moving his normal speed which just happens to be twice that of ordinary mortals. Aries need to be the best at whatever they do, and if it doesn't happen easily, they can kill themselves trying. The fact that they can't sit still, puts them in the running for a "Speedy Gonzales" contest. Aries I have known occupy a special place in my heart for their unlimited enthusiasm. It's hard not to be bowled over with their infectious smiles and super confidence that this time, they will make it big. Of course you know that more ARIES have spent time behind bars than any other sign.
ARIES often have a lean body, built for speed. Clint Eastwood is the classic type. ARIES is ruled by the planet Mars, (I'll give you a hint: Mars was the mythical God of War), and has a terrible temper. Their impulsive natures can be a help or a hindrance depending on how evolved they are. Patience does not come easily to anyone born under this sign. They intensely dislike routine and are easily bored. On the contrary, they crave excitement. One ARIES I knew wanted desperately to go to Africa to be a mercenary!
You will often find them in professions that don't have a nine to five routine, such as the military, sales, and generally anything that involves "speed". They can also be excellent leaders if they don't let their egos get in the way. Some notable ARIES include; Leonard Nimoy, Michael York, Martin Short, Eddie Murphy, Marlon Brando, James Woods, and David Letterman.
The females of this sign are just as competitive. Some notable examples of successful ARIES women are; Diana Ross, Bette Davis and Barbara Streisland. No-one has ever accused them of being shrinking violets! In fact, if you get two ARIES together, they will almost always compete with one another. A male ARIES loves to be the boss and a female ARIES loves to be in control. Women born under this sign like men who are controllers, but they HATE to be controlled themselves. They also have no respect for men who are seen to buckle under to authority. This can often create an interesting dilemma.
Every Astrological sign has dominance over a part of the body. Aries rules the head. This means that if you are an ARIES, then you have probably suffered your share of blows to the head, accidental or otherwise. In fact, most ARIES have at least one scar on their head. Many young ARIES can be seen driving their trikes with helmets on. Remember that this is the sign of the "Ram" and as such is an excellent symbol of "butting heads".
