General Characteristics of Aries
The people born in this zodiac are bluntly self assertive, enthusiastic, energetic and always the leader in the crowd. The qualities of Arian are too forceful and energized to be subtle. People often mistake their assertiveness as their overconfidence and their enthusiasm as rashness. Arians may seem to be a bit self-centered and demanding like a child. However, they are also the ones carrying the untarnished innocence and naivety of a child. They are naturally friendly and trusting towards others and barely clutter their minds with complexities, grudges and bitter memories. Even ardent enemies become friends as soon as the explosive fights are over and the other side shows truce. Quick tempered and easily offended when ignored, Arians cool off their anger as quickly, and everything is rosy again. It seems unfair to them if you continue to hold grudge. The negative traits of this sign can be manifested in form of extreme selfishness, cruelty and ego. It is tough for them to see their mistakes and are too egoistical to see others point of view. This usually creates a lot of problem for them in relationships, especially in married life.
But more often than not, they put complete faith in people as friends. They are extremely loyal and warm and live their life with a spirit of adventure and independence. These people are highly idealistic and fight off to any extent to protect their beliefs. They are also very emotional and vulnerable, and get hurt easily, although they will be extremely egoistic to reveal their tears. They are also a bit sissy like a baby when it comes to physical injuries. But other than that this is a very strong and determined sign, which can actually materialize miracles with sheer force of optimism and confidence.
