As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries has a "me-first" personality. You’ll find them in the centre of the action, taking the lead and organising everyone around them with an enthusiasm that is contagious. As a Fire sign, Aries can have an explosive temper, but their warmth and charisma means you can never stay mad at them for long.

Brimming with self-confidence, Aries are real go-getters. If they decide they want to do something, an Aries will leap before they look – and may not always finish what they start. Playing small is not in their nature; “go big or go home” was most likely a phrase coined by an Aries.

At their best, Aries is vibrant and exuberant, optimistic, generous, affectionate and determined. At their worst, they are hot-headed, explosive, sulky and aggressive. Aries are not generally malicious, though. They can be thoughtless and have a temper, but once the emotion subsides, they’re back to their happy selves before you know it.


Spotting an Aries

How to spot the Aries woman:

The Aries woman loves a challenge. She’s the alpha in her friend group, the one most likely to line her friends up for shots at the bar when the night is getting a little dull. There’s a confidence and enthusiasm about the Aries woman that is quite magnetic, and this can be reflected in her wardrobe. She loves bling, but steers clear of fussy details – and nobody does classy casual like an Aries woman.

 How to spot the Aries man:

He may not be the most attractive man in the room, but he’ll definitely stand out! Aries men can be incredibly charismatic, and if he’s interested in you, you’ll definitely know about it. He can be a little vain, so you’re likely to find him hitting the gym or pounding the pavement. The Aries man takes great pride in his appearance, and is one of the zodiac’s biggest label-lovers.
