The very first Sign of the Zodiac is Aries. And, much on the same lines, the ones born under this Sign consider themselves as the first. Aries are known for their fiery zeal and exuberance. Most impressive are their leadership qualities and optimism. Most Aries have a burning desire to start things off, and make things happen. Individuals born under the Sign Aries are also known to be pioneers of the Zodiac, and many a times it’s their brave journey into the untrodden path that helps them emerge victorious.
Aries individuals also exhibit energy and dynamism, and with their innate charisma, they are often able to convince and lead people effortlessly. The Zodiac Sign Aries is found to be compatible with the Signs Sagittarius, Leo, Aquarius and Gemini (Leo is the best suited among others, as a partner for Aries). In relationships, it is often found that the Aries mate is a loving and loyal one. When the Aries falls in love, he/she will not wait, and would rather straight away go and express his/ her feelings, without even giving this a considerable thought.
Affectionate Aries individuals are known to pamper their love ones and beloved to the degree of being excessive. The guileless and usually ‘a child at heart’, Aries natives, however, are extremely dejected and disappointed, when their love is not reciprocated in the equal measure. They try to be understanding and appreciative of their beloved, but only till the time they receive and see the requisite attention and love (or the hope of it) in return.
Aries the Challenger
In the horoscope chart, Aries brings impulsive energy to planets or Houses therein. Aries is the Zodiac sign of impatient activity, the one who acts before thinking, because passivity aggravates. That easily leads to competition, even battle. For Aries, the important thing is to do something, whatever it is. You are what you do.
One of the best representatives of the Aries Zodiac sign mentality is Achilles, the Ancient Greek legendary warrior hero, who threw himself into battle in what seems to have been a constant struggle against boredom. His minor weakness was what finally got him, but until then he was magnificent in his proud pursuit of the warrior path.
In the horoscope, Aries is the Zodiac sign that stirs things up and makes sure that we don’t get complacent, falling asleep in a society that is good enough.

Negative Qualities of Aries

It has been often observed that Aries men and women with their dominant nature thrust themselves so much on others that intentionally or not knowingly, they seize away the identity from others. In this whole process, an Arian forgets to realize that their possessiveness might act negatively on their own like.
