Aries: Characteristics and PersonalityJanuary 8, 2016
Few people are as adventurous and courageous as you are, dear Aries.
You are both the innocent child and teenager of the zodiac. Others remember you for your willful approach in everything you do.
You’re a born leader and don’t like being bossed or ruled by others—and often your work environment and career choices reflect your need for independence. So you work yourself mad to achieve top positions and often succeed.
You love direct and honest communication and in a world of half truths and withdrawal of information you feel truly uncomfortable.
When you control your hastiness and speedy reactions, dear Aries, your sensible and flexible partner will be grateful and love you even more.
Parashara, one of the fathers of Vedic astrology called you “active, ambitious, courageous, impulsive, fiery, residing in the East and related to kings.”
Those who confuse your genuine enthusiasm for aggressiveness are missing a great ally and a strong supporter in you. Because when you take up a task you don’t let go until you have accomplished your goals.
Your strong individuality is both your charm and a liability. But you really value your relationships and that’s why you are attracted to a partner who can compromise and allows your occasionally headstrong tendencies to be expressed.
At work, you need both recognition and appreciation or you’ll simply quit and find another more suitable job.
If you can avoid getting bored, the sky is the limit for what you can achieve. And we need fair leaders like you, dear Aries.

Nakshatras (or Birth Stars)
The following constellations further define Aries.
This star is ruled the lunar Node and spiritual planet Ketu and the twin brothers Ashwini Kumaras—the physicians of the Gods. Those born here are innocent, youthful and love the healing arts. They are also dignified and pioneers in a variety of fields. They are intelligent and always trying to improve themselves. Ashwini people are charming and explorers. They are also interested in spirituality and later in life seek detachment from worldly activities.
This star is ruled by Venus and Yama, the God of transformation. This is a fiery nakshatra with much energy. It’s also one of the most nurturing and creative birth stars. Those born here tend to take on too much work and feel oppressed in the process. Like the other stars of Venus, those born in Bharani are popular and well-liked. They achieve positions of leadership by being dutiful and trustworthy.
This star, also known as ‘the Cutter’, has three rulers: the Sun, Agni or God of sacred fire and Muruga, a Pleiadian God and son of Shiva. Krittika bestows unparalleled courage, strength and leadership abilities, bringing great ambition and desires for self-affirmation. This star’s energy is harsh, but brings both success and great energy to those born in Krittika.
