Soul’s beginning in the journey of life.
The first sign of the zodiac, which is also considered to be a leading sign, is believed to be the soul’s beginning in the journey of life.
When a human being opens his eyes to the world, when he is born, he has started living. This sign always represents new beginnings, birth, the first of everything and pioneers. Aries people tend to be more individualistic in their behaviour. It is difficult to control them. Their attitude is one of “I am here” in social life. Aries people are straight forward, they do not like formalities. They desire to transcend barriers with their impatient and childlike nature. They do not like rules but are sincere.
They like to learn new things and have a creative curiosity. They are both productive in their fields of interest anda re pleased when their efforts are acknowledged well by others.
They move fast and are practical people due to their excited nature. They have warrior qualities that can withstand even the toughest conditions.
They feel angry easily if they do not get their wish or if they are misunderstood. However, their anger dies down in seconds. They do not hold grudges and can give anything to win back hearts when they realize their mistakes.
The ruling planet of Aries, Mars, also rules the first, root chakra in our inner energy system.
The ruling planet of Aries, Mars, also rules the first, root chakra in our inner energy system. This chakra is called the Mooladhara. This is why Aries people can be fearless and child-like to a point of naivity at times. A soul born into this sign is deeply connected with life and feels an intense need to experience new things because our root chakra rules our connections with life and earth.
This chakra also enables us to discriminate between right and wrong and gives us wisdom. Aries people can control their reactions, anger and impatience that comes from ego if they manage to establish these qualities within themselves. They can also use their energetic and creative existence to become more spiritual by making correct decisions that also influence others.
