What is the Aries like?

by Larissa Katiukha

The people born under the Zodiac Sign Aries are curious, energetic and enthusiastic individuals, who want to initiate and make things happen rather than being mere spectators. They are action-oriented. That’s why they are excited to discover new territories.

Aries have a number of positive traits.

A fairly common trait as far as the Aries are concerned is adventurousness. Not the ones to shy away from taking risks, the Aries at times push their luck just for that adrenalin rush. They are also courageous when the situation gets tough, the Aries still get going. An Aries will take the challenge head on. In addition, the Aries are the people who’d try out newer things in life. They like change of scene, occupation, activity. You may call them Jack of many trades! You will never find an Aries low on energy levels. They are very lively. When an Aries is around the whole environment in the room lightens up. The positive energy that the Aries possess and spread around gives them a psychological advantage over others and makes them quite popular in society.

Aries are passionate. If they are interested in something, for instance work, business, project, they will be totally involved and inspire others.

On the other hand, the Aries are insensitive of others’ emotions and they are arrogant. They believe that what they know and perceive is right. Moreover, they are stubborn. They have fixed opinions and they will not budge for anything in the world. That is why they are difficult to get along with. Other negative traits are impatience and impulsiveness. That is why many a times the Aries will not consider minute aspect of the matters and ponder over situations to arrive at a decision.

There is another danger. The Aries are enthusiastic and active, but their energies are often scattered in different directions. They need to harness their energy levels and be disciplined in order to succeed in life. They also have a tendency to leave projects mid-way. They are so excited about novelty that they can’t concentrate on projects for long, and in turn leave them mid-way. They are always searching for another challenge.

It is not easy for them to build a relationship. They tend to be confrontational and do not think twice before asking a tricky question which can hurt a person.
