Primal, passionate, impulsive and assertive, Aries is the master of the “one-night-stand”.
In ancient Egypt, Aries was associated with the god Amon-Ra. He was depicted as a man with a ram’s head and represented fertility and creativity.
In Greek mythology, Aries is associated with the golden-haired, winged ram which was sacrificed to the gods and placed in a sacred grove called Ares. The fleece was guarded by a serpent that never slept and it was Jason and his band of Argonauts who set out on a quest for the fleece.
The Warrior – fights for the right to have a separate and unique identity.

This action-initiating focus becomes an inspiration to others as well as the self.
