Aries: Fun Facts
As the first sign of the Zodiac, the presence of an Aries almost always indicates the beginning of something energetic and boisterous. Not much holds this sign back. They’re eager, dynamic, quick, and competitive. When it comes to getting the ball rolling, an Aries is the best. Pioneering everything from work-related projects to parties with friends, these folks go for the gusto.
Friends and Family
“Activity” is the key word for this sign, and wow, can they ever go! The Aries is on the go constantly. When it comes to Aries’ friends, the more variety, the better. It takes a range of different personalities to complete Aries’ circle of friends. Quick and easy to get along with, an Aries native makes an incredible amount of connections in a lifetime. Long-term friends are something altogether different, though. Only those who are equally as energetic and able to keep up are apt to make it in the long run.
Independent and ambitious, Aries natives make their own way as early in their lives as possible. While staying in touch with family can leave much to be desired, these loved ones are always in Aries’ heart. A direct and forthright approach can be expected almost always, and when a sentiment is expressed, it’s bound to be sincere.
Career and Money
This is the area of life where Arians is apt to shine the brightest. Ambitious, creative, and often driven by the need to be the best they can be, the workplace can be the perfect platform. Born leaders, this sign is far more comfortable taking charge than taking orders. Their ability to envision allows the steps to fall naturally into place. All the Aries has to do is follow his or her own lead.
When faced with a challenge, Aries will quickly assess the situation and arrive at a solution – whatever it takes to get the plan off the ground! Competition only makes this fire sign burn brighter. Aries people truly move through life with their own agendas, which are always going to be their primary focal point. Careers that are strong choices include real estate agent, salesperson, manager, conductor, and business owner or entrepreneur.
Even though the Aries is wise enough to save for a rainy day, this isn’t often the case. Because they prize excitement, shopping, gambling, and playing the market are far more appealing. They aren’t focused on the future. In fact, living for the moment is the true Aries philosophy. Money is rarely scarce because of the love of working, but it can be spent almost as quickly as it’s made. The one thing you can be absolutely sure of is that an Aries will have as much fun as possible!
Love and Sex
This wildly flirtatious fire sign certainly takes the initiative when it comes to romance. They’re quick to move when someone catches their eye. But to keep an Aries’ attention, the person needs to be as energetic and as exciting as they are. This is a passionate sign that loves adventure. When a fire burns, it really burns! Whirlwind romances are common for the Aries personality. But once love sets in, it’s generally for life. As long as there’s plenty of spice and excitement to keep the blood pumping, the relationship will be strong and long-lasting.
Each sign has a part of the anatomy attached to it, making this the area of the body that is most sensitive to stimulation. The anatomical areas for Aries are the head, face, brain, and upper teeth. (DW here: This “upper teeth” bit makes me giggle, as they’re the WHOLE REASON I got braces…they bugged the shit outta me!)

Well, dayum. Except for a few minor points, I seriously AM the poster child for the Aries.
