Your planet is under the planetary rulership of Mars, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, the influence of the Sun also plays a key role in your personality. The power of Mars can be witnessed in your assertiveness, vigor and action, but it is the Sun that can be credited with your individuality, vitality and inspiration. More so than any of the other Aries Decans, your planetary influence makes you charismatic and creative. You use these attributes to display a playful attitude and gain many friends, which is perfect because you love being the center of attention. As long as you avoid your tendency to brag, your planetary influence will play a key role in your success. In love, find a partner that shares in your youthful energy, as this pairing will bring you the most satisfaction.
