I have heard it somewhere that, when something doesn’t seem right, when things are falling apart, when you aren’t able to connect the dots. The best known solution is “Introspection“. Don’t you think so, because I do. Now the reason for this post is, I was searching for myself, I mean all that I am and this is a sort of activity that I’m constantly engaged with. To tell you the background, I saw a play on the weekend named as Sharad Upadhye’s “Rashi Chakra“.

This has got me interested in sun signs and their stories and the logic on which it is all based. It is fascinating, engaging and one noble way of introspecting. So now, when I question myself that, why some things are the way they are, I know it’s only some of my implicit traits.

Okay, I don’t know how many of you would be reading everything below, but I assure you it’ll help you know me a tad better than you would normally interpret me (just one more of my implicit trait :D). Let’s get down and do some work. Here I have found some interesting and obvious traits of me, the places where I thought I have experienced that feeling I have applied that to myself and rest all are general Arian characteristics.   

 

ARIES, the Ram

 

  • I am committed to some idealistic cause and angrily defending the underdog. I will fight for what I feel is an injustice on the spot, and I’ll not be bashful about voicing my opinions.

 

  •  The ram is conscious only of himself.

 

  • There’s not a trace of cunning wile in the ram, and he’ll remain this way throughout his lifetime; forever believing with all his heart, always falling down and getting up again to try once more. He’ll trustingly try again, when he’s forgotten the hurt.

 

  • I can make believe from here to tomorrow, and spin fabulous dreams, but I can’t lie worth a tinker.

 

  • What you see before you is what I am. There’s nothing hidden or complicated about me.

 

  • If you see an Aries with drooping shoulders, he’s probably a sheep type, who was badly hurt in the ego when he was young. It may take him some time to recover, if the wounds went deep, but he’ll straighten up someday. You can count on it. Nothing keeps these people down forever, failure least of all.

 

  • I will look you straight in the eye, with unabashed honesty and rather touching faith. If I am hurt, I’ll never show it on the surface, if I can help it. If you see me openly weeping, you can be certain that I’m been cut to the very soul in some way. I would rather be caught dead than be caught weak.

 

  • I will undoubtedly be at the head of my chosen career or involved in a profession of my own. If not, then you can easily recognize me by the discontent that clearly shows at being forced to submit to others. You can look for a liberal attitude, lavish generosity with both time and material things, and a marked desire to lead all the marches with loud cymbals.

 

  • I’m a little short on patience, too. In a coffee shop, I’ll quickly criticize the waitress and the sandwich, if the first is fresh and the second is stale. But I’ll probably leave an unnecessarily big tip when the service is good.

 

  • I’m very direct, to put it mildly. Deceptiveness and deviousness are entirely foreign to me. Frankness and refreshing honesty are my trademarks. I some times lack stability and a child-like lack of responsibility.

 

  • The seeds of depression, even if planted, will die a quick death in Arian soil. But that precious idea Aries holds, that no one else can do anything as efficiently as he can, may run away with me and ‘lead to a thousand disasters. I’ll carry through my schemes with dash and confidence, seldom realizing that I’m overreaching myself.

 

  • People who have arrived at the top through hard and patient work justifiably resent an aggressive Aries, who thinks he knows far more with far less experience. He learns modesty and humility only after many dismal failures. But once he’s learned, he can make a project pay off like a gusher, adding stacks of creative ideas, and intuitively making the right moves.
  • Success, when it comes, is normally gigantic and impressive. Strangely, most Aries people often create wealth for others rather than for themselves.

 

  • Though Aries pushes ahead with confidence, caring little for the feelings of others, and his attitude, especially in youth, is “me first,” he can be the warmest and most generous of all the Sun signs.

 

  • I honestly believe that I can do anything better than anyone else, and I’m psychologically unable to stand by while others fumble and flop. Give me a choice of money or glory, and I’ll take glory any time. I’m as fond of a dollar as the next person, but I’m just a few shades fonder of praise and fame.

 

  • I have a way of making instant decisions without the authority of his superiors. My speech can be satirical and cutting in invective. Arian anger flashes forth with the speed of sound, but it’s usually gone before the victim knows what it’s all about, and the happy, child-like smile quickly returns.

 

  • I am often accused of having a terrible temper. But I also have a complete inability to remain angry, and once over with, the grievance is generally buried and forgotten. I’m hurt and surprised that you still remember the rash things I said but didn’t mean. Given the chance, I will apologize to his worst enemy, regardless of any dire threats I made in the throes of emotion. I seldom become angry with individuals. You may get the shower of sparks, but the fire is actually directed toward an idea or a situation that I find intolerable.

 

  • I am capable of trying to tell a small white lie, if it will put me foremost or save one of my cherished deals, but most of the time, I have little use of lies, which is fortunate, because I get caught every time. Blunt candor is quicker, and since the main interest is in getting to the point in a hurry, I’ll prefer to tell the truth.

 

  • I have no time at all for gossip. That involves discussing others, and I am far too interested in myself to waste any excess energy speculating on the inner secrets, behavior or motives of anyone else.

 

  • People are normally either black or white to me. I don’t bother with the gray tones. Don’t mistake this for prejudice. Any reputation I get for prejudice comes from my tendency to lump people into two distinct camps-his friends and his enemies-and I’ll expect you to line them up the same way, if you’re close to me.

 

  • I will dine with beggars and kings with equal ease and genuine affection.

 

  • Patience with detail isn’t my strong point. I’d rather leave the minor, petty statistics to someone else. That’s sensible enough. Someone else would handle them far more efficiently. Time spent pinning down the facts is resented.

 

  • I don’t always care for yesterday’s lessons, and tomorrow is too far away to worry about. Today is my natural residence. This hour and this minute. I’ll be totally consumed in the action of the present.

 

  • A realist, yet a decided idealist. No one can show such tough, forceful behavior.

 

  • I’m literally incapable of accepting defeat. I won’t recognize it-even when it stares me in the face.

 

  • Being very clever in-fighters, the rams battle best with their heads, meaning their minds. They enjoy opposition because of the challenge it presents, and they’ll go out of their way to meet an obstacle and conquer it long before it comes to them and often when it might have been headed in the opposite direction. They don’t wait around for success to drop in their laps, either; they’ll chase it at a furious pace.

 

  • Arians are also capable of being calm, wise and serious when they choose. Unfortunately, they usually don’t choose until youth has passed and maturity has mellowed their rash idealism and sense of driving haste.

 

  • I hate politics, because I’m impulsive in speech and hate to hedge, both deadly traits for a politician.

 

  • Once you get my interest I’ll be an attentive listener, especially if your ideas are exciting and progressive. I’ll promote you to the skies, and offer you my time, money, sympathy and loyalty.

 

  • Once involved in helping you through a rough time, I will walk the extra mile without hesitation. But show your gratitude, please. I’ll be deeply hurt, if not downright angry, when you don’t appreciate my strenuous actions, which went far beyond the call of duty, and also probably far beyond what you needed or wanted.

 

  • I enjoy doing favors; the larger the charitable gesture the better; if thanks are withheld, however, it probably won’t keep me from helping again.

 

  • I have a amazing faith in myself is matched only by my naive trust in others, which is why I’m almost constantly disillusioned, and complaining that someone has let me down. Of course, I won’t stay down long. I’ll pick myself up, dust myself off, and soon be ready, willing and able to blast away again, after a typical binge of violent but brief depression.

 

  • I have an innocent wistful facet to my nature, and a kind of eternal, joyous, naive faith, blended with the blind zeal of the born crusader.

 

  • I’m the pioneer, always leading others onward to an impossible goal. My beautiful iron faith is pure-unmixed with the alloys of hypocrisy and greed.

 

  • I’ll seldom amass a fortune, and if at all I do, I would be too busy to stop and count it. I always have something to spare, however pressed or poor I may be temporarily. I know that bread cast on the waters not only feeds my ego and returns again increased, but it makes people happy, one of the things I enjoy most in life.

The ARIES Man

 

  • I can overwhelm you with passionate ardor one minute, and be as icy as a polar bear the next. Insult me or lose my interest-either or both-and that warm, impulsive Mars nature will freeze instantly. To ignite it again may mean starting all over from Act One, Scene One.

 

  • I’m fairly bursting with ideas and creative energy. Keeping up with me may be tiring, but keep up you’d better. At least mentally. I have a way of leaving the snails behind and not glancing back

 

  • I’m impatient with slow pokes, bold and confident, always ahead of others, and sometimes ahead of myself as well. I can be the soul of generosity, giving my time, money, sympathy and possessions by the carload cheerfully to strangers. But I can also be exasperatingly intolerant, thoughtless, selfish and demanding, when my desires are delayed, or I’m forced to be around negative people.

 

  • When it comes to love, my heedless attitude is absolutely amazing. I’ll plunge into an affair, positive that this is the only true love ever known by any two people ever born, with the possible exception of Romeo and Juliet. When it breaks in half, hell pick up the pieces, and try every angle he can think of to salvage the dead romance.

 

  • If it’s beyond repair, I’ll start all over again and it will be like the very first time. No matter how many romantic mistakes I make, I’m sure my true love or soul mate is just around the next dream.

 

  • The Aries man is as passionate as any woman could ask. There’s little left to desire. He’s so idealistic and susceptible to sentiment, he’ll squeeze all the tingles, sighs, ecstasies and poetry it’s possible to squeeze out of a relationship.

 

  • I’m not capable of going halfway. I’ll give all of myself to the burning interest of the moment. I can be insanely quieter at times like a sheep. Don’t be fooled. I’m still ruled by Mars. I don’t talk much right away; I’m not openly exuberant and pushy. But take my word for it, if you could see inside that hard head, you would discover that my brain is spinning at approximately two hundred revolutions per second.

 

  • Naturally, it’s easier when you’re in love with a plain, simple ram, who makes it obvious just how enthusiastic he is about everything from potato chips to moonlight and motor trips. No other Sun sign can be so scrupulously faithful as Aries when he’s really in love.

 

  • My honesty will usually keep me from fooling you, and my idealism will keep me from wanting to. Promiscuity or even light flirtations are not an Arian habit, not when I’m deeply involved with all my heart.

 

  • I’m always looking for a storybook romance, and storybook romances never include a casual attitude toward love and sex.

 

  • If you learn how to open your eyes and look at him mistily and all the rest of it, he’ll stay with you happily, and ignore every female on earth for you. The ram is highly unlikely to commit himself physically to more than one woman at a time. It just wouldn’t fit his image of one true and lasting love. The decision to break off the old will always be made before becoming too deeply involved with the new. You’ll have plenty of warning. I can rarely pretend a passion I don’t feel. This alone prevents any undue amount of deception.

 

  • No one princess will ever satisfy his image of the ideal. It’s quite a trick to convince him you’re superior to all other females, but it will keep him spotlessly faithful, if you can swing it. It’s really worth a try, because, if the Aries plunge into romance is headlong, his race out of it is equally reckless.

 

  • He’s both an idealist and an egotist, which means he hates to admit he’s wrong, or that the love he chose could die. Adultery is actually distasteful to his honest nature. If you have any ideas about playing games with him by flirting-drop them. Your first indiscretion will probably be your last. You can lose him with just a whisper or an intimate look at another man, let alone any actual infidelity. He insists on being first in everything and this includes being first in your heart. Aries is possessive and jealous in the extreme.

 

  • The Aries male is a natural rebel. He loves to defy authority and he thinks he was born smarter than anyone else. Because of his need to lead and refusal to follow, those in more powerful positions will teach him frequent lessons in humility. At these times, you’re way ahead, because he’ll run to you for comfort and assurance when his ego is bruised. Then you’ll learn that, beneath his self-confident, aggressive front, lies an inferiority complex he’d rather die than admit having. The woman who handles his shattered confidence with gentle and total devotion has the best chance of keeping his heart permanently.

 

  • Never make the mistake of agreeing with his momentary enemy, or trying to be fair and seeing the other side of the controversy. You must love what he loves and hate what he hates. He demands the same fierce and unquestioning loyalty that he gives, in both love and friendship. It’s his code. Unless you honor it, find another man.

 

  • There are no subtle tricks in the Aries nature. It’s not at all hard to recognize when a Mars man is finished with a relationship. The ice and boredom in his voice and manner will be unmistakable, and will usually be accompanied by a frank statement that makes it crystal clear. On the other hand, an explosive flame of scorching is less serious, signifying that his displeasure is probably just a passing mood, the romance can be saved. You have more reason to fear his ice than his fire.

 

  • Aries males don’t like games. He’ll be direct in all his approaches. And that means in romance, as well as in business. He won’t waste a second, once the love has been recognized, but be sure to let him be the one to recognize it.

 

  • Love with me is like walking a tightrope between warm interest and aloof detachment. You practically have to be a trapeze artist. Don’t run after me. Don’t run away from me, either. Stick a penny in your shoe, carry a four-leaf clover and wish on a star. That will get you as far as any normal, methodical strategy. Maybe farther. You have to keep me guessing, even after you’re my. At the same time, I need the assurance that your love is always there. Learn to live with it-or learn to live without me.

 

  • On the plus side, although he’ll insist on being first in the relationship, he’ll also be the first to say he’s sorry after a quarrel, and the first to be there when you need him. He’ll be right by your side when you’re ill or unhappy. He’ll spend money on you freely and willingly (if he’s a typical son of Mars).

 

  • He’ll compliment your appearance, appreciate your talents and be a stimulating mental companion. Although he can be bossy and lose his temper over a trifle, he’ll seldom let the sun go down on his anger before making up.

 

  • You may be the most important thing in his life, but he’ll expect you to know that, and wait for affection and attention when he’s all excited by some new idea which is consuming his interest. He wants to be your whole world, but unlike other men, he’ll let you share his world, if you’re his equal. The Aries male will expect his lady fair to be ultra-feminine and a tomboy at the same time.

 

  • He wants you to be completely independent, yet willing to stay a few paces behind him. He’ll expect you to praise him and be devoted to him, but never play the role of humble slave. Are you still with me? Good. Brave girl. There’s more to come. He’s capable of saying bitterly cruel and sarcastic things to you when his ego has been wounded, things he won’t mean at all, but which may break your heart if you don’t understand him. Then he’ll expect you to forgive and forget as readily as he does.

 

  • You’ll have to like all his friends, while he reserves the right to be bored by yours.

 

  • Well, you wanted a man, didn’t you? You’ve sure got one in your Aries mate. If you’re a real woman, your love affair can be the envy of everyone in town.

 

  • Once you’ve married him, the Aries male will dominate the home or leave it. He won’t stand for being nagged in public or private. It’s essential that he control the purse-strings all the way. He’ll be generous with his cash, if he’s a typical Arian, and give you whatever you need. You can have that cobra skin handbag after he’s bought that alligator brief case, if there’s anything left over. (He may be a little selfish, but he’s never stingy.)

 

  • Though the ram may change jobs frequently until he becomes his own boss, he won’t let you starve. He’ll find a way to keep the dollars flowing in, even though they may flow out again just as fast. Better save a few quarters in the blue china pig and surprise him with it when he needs it most, because he’s not likely to salt away much of his earnings himself

 

  • Encourage his independence, but try to curb his impulsiveness-tactfully. He must lead or life is worth little to him. His great and bubbly enthusiasm can die a sad death if you douse it with wet blankets or short circuit his positive energy with negative thinking. The minute he loses authority on the job or in the home, his refreshing optimism will turn to moody discontent and finally, complete disinterest. It’s not his nature to submit. He’s a man’s man. Never destroy his masculinity, but never lose your own individuality. Don’t try to push him around, and don’t let him push you around.

 

  • An Aries husband won’t put up with a wife who runs around to club meetings every night. Neither will he tolerate a wife who sits home and crochets bedspreads and tablecloths all day. You’ll have to aim somewhere in the middle. If you’re successful, just think- you’ll be the only white-haired Juliet in your crowd some-day, with a husband who’s still sentimental on your golden wedding anniversary. That’s quite a challenge if you’re a romantic, and of course you are, or you wouldn’t be involved with an Aries man in the first place.
