“To have courage for whatever comes in life
— everything lies in that.”
—Teresa of Ávila
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is associated with fresh and enthusiastic beginnings. Mars, as the ruler of Aries, has the ability to initiate, and he imbues this sign with the courage and strength to begin new things. Aries is a fire sign and the fire element is dynamic, giving this sign its outgoing enthusiasm.
On a physical level, Aries rules the head. People with planets in Aries are sometimes willful, impulsive or headstrong. However, they can also use their heads to develop strategies for constructive ideas and improvements.
Scientific and technical abilities can be found in this sign.
The Sun (Surya) represents both the ego and the Soul in an individual's chart.
