HOROSCOPE

The Aries is under the planetary rule of Mars and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, Mars lends you twice its influence. Being the planet of assertiveness, the influence of Mars is reflected in your action, vigor and courage. Your unique planetary influence makes you the most dominant and aggressive of all the Aries Decans. You are never satisfied with your current level of success and actively seek out new challenges to overcome. While this quality gives you limitless potential, it can become detrimental if you rush into things too hastily. Finding patience will be one of your most notable challenges, but it is one well-worth conquering. In love, find a partner that shares in your passion and energy, as this pairing will bring you the most excitement and happiness.
