Every year, between (roughly) March 21 st , and April 21 st , the Sun moves through the sign of Aries. In Western astrology*, the Sun's apparent path around the Earth is divided into 12 equal parts - the signs of the zodiac.
Aries is considered to the be the 'first' sign of the zodiac: its start coincides with one of the two annual solstices. Aries belongs to the Fire group of signs: it also belongs to the Cardinal group.
So what does this mean?
The twelve signs have different mission statements. Your Aries baby would probably like to be first, to have courage and boundless optimism and enthusiasm. Your Aries baby would most likely enjoy a life of adventure and fun. Your Aries baby probably wants to react quickly to situations, for others to be quick to respond to their needs and to never, ever be bored. The Fire in your Aries baby brings out the potential for fast reactions whilst the Cardinal in your Aries baby suggests leadership qualities.
Of course, just how good your Aries baby is at getting what it needs will depend on the position of the Moon and the other planets at birth. These factors will help determine the degree to which your Aries baby will fulfil his of her ambitions.
You can help:
Your Aries baby may rush at the world and might not always see danger. Without stifling natural enthusiasm or boisterousness, you can help your baby assess risk. Your Aries baby is likely to want to 'get physical' since Aries people derive great pleasure from exercising their limbs. Your Aries baby will probably respond well to little goals - which allows them to develop their competitive streak.
Your Aries baby is likely to be very affectionate and, eventually, to enjoy having a 'best friend'. It's said that Aries people are independent and strong-minded. Yet they need long-term partnerships - perhaps because they need something to break from occasionally (if only to kiss and make-up later).
Aries doesn't 'do' bored and so can get into mischief. They need stimulation - yet a little can go a long way. Though they like primary colours (especially red), too much can leave them over-stimulated. One of the greatest lessons you can teach your little Aries is how to enjoy calm and to plan their adventures.Your Aries baby is likely to be quick to smile: in fact, they're likely to be quick to do everything! They have a strong desire to please and usually demonstrate affection easily. True, as they grow older they may need to learn not to wear their heart on their sleeve - yet you might also take delight in their willingness to help others.
