It’s no coincidence that aggressive Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. While these passionate people are known for getting things done, they’re also highly adept at putting themselves first. Indeed, the ram’s motto could be “looking out for number one,” with themselves auspiciously filling that top spot. On the other hand, unlike some of their equally ambitious astrological counterparts (Scorpio, Gemini and Capricorn come to mind), you’ll always know where you stand with these straight-shooters. So what really motivates The Ram? Let’s have a look and see:
Understanding an Aries is fairly uncomplicated — you can almost always take them at their word. Rams know what they want and aren’t shy about going after it. This can make them difficult to deal with for the weak-hearted, easily offended or shy. It also means they have a tendency to bowl lesser-inclined people over on their way to the top. Even quieter Aries (who may not seem so aggressive) are active, courageous, fiercely independent and most often, driven by their goals.
On that note, it’s no surprise that Aries natives are some of the most physical people around. Beyond the impressive physique this often leads to, being so physically grounded in their bodies reflects their grounding in the present moment. The now is vital to most people of this Sun Sign and as a result, they rarely think about consequences. Planning holds little importance to the Ram … which is why, even when they get what they want, things sometimes go awry afterward.
Naturally competitive Aries may like to win at all costs, but they don’t enjoy that win unless it’s a challenge. Translation? The Ram will only respect a formidable competitor who puts up a fight. Far from cutthroat in this sense, these seemingly driven souls are also vibrant and even a little bit childlike, since they’re playful in their desire to engage. Similarly, they have the need to always be on the go and have a hard time sitting still. Hence, if you get an Aries to settle down, you know they see you as someone special. Life will always be an unpredictable adventure with this sign and while it can be tough to keep up, you’ll never wonder how you’re doing, because Aries will let you know with words and moreover, actions.
