Personal relationships :
Having been described as direct with the inference being that you have may have a candid streak, you are an enthusiastic energy-abound friend. You may have a high sex drive and be a very passionate lover who likes to dominate.

Advice from others
Aries Health :
For the sign of Aries the head and the brain are the most important parts where health is concerned and these areas of the body should therefore be afforded greater protection. Being primarily quick and detailed thinkers they put a constant strain on their minds and thus Aries is often afflicted with head-aches, sometimes migraines. Aries also traditionally suffers from problems with the sinuses and with the gums. Aries should beware of taking on too much stress as this is the fastest way to cause their health to deteriorate. In order to combat these dangers those of the sign of Aries are best advised to ensure that they eat well and make the attempt to get enough time to relax each day and that they take regular, restful holidays.
Meditation is one of the best recreational activities for the sign of Aries so if you’re of this sign and have never tried this it may be worth looking into. Meditation relieves strain, reduces irritability and returns one to one’s natural, balanced self is just what Aries needs on occasion.
For those born under the sign of Aries the particular food stuffs it would be best for them to avoid in order to keep their bodies and minds as healthy as possible are junk food, coffee (stimulants of any kind, in fact) and too much sugar.
Dehydration is something to look out for as this can easily lead to headaches, one of the ailments to which Aries people are particularly susceptible. Aries can cancel out this danger by ensuring that their intake of pure water remains high.
Aries Money/Career :
The Aries personality tends to prefer to control things and therefore Aries makes an excellent candidate for self-employment or of being management material. Although good at management of others Aries paradoxically seems often to have trouble in managing their own money and saving is not one of their strengths. Aries tends to spend first but not think it through until later and this can clearly cause problems. Learning to budget properly can take an enormous amount of strain and upset out of their lives.
Due to their wealth of skills, however, the Aries character is generally good at earning big money when willing to put in the mental effort. Those born under the sign of Aries who try hard to combat their money difficulties by saving carefully will generally end up being quite wealthy. A person born under the sign of Aries needs a challenging job in order to be satisfied in the work place.
The Aries character is a competitive one and this can serve them well in the cut-throat world of business. Self-assertive with excellent communication skills they can be excellent at interviews whether they are attending one or interviewing potential employees.
An Aries is happiest in a job that demands more of their mental skills. If they become interested in a project they are willing to spend the extra hours putting the work in. However, if they become bored in their employment there is little chance of them staying around. Aries will be off looking for more engaging employment if they feel that this is happening.
Aries in Astrology :
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is symbolised by the Ram. This, according to some sources, arises from the Greek legend in which the Golden Ram rescues Phrixos and carries him off to the land of Colchis. This is the Ram of the Golden Fleece legend.
Just like Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius, we find that Aries is positive in polarity which makes them extrovert in personality and outgoing in general rather than being withdrawn or highly sensitive.
Aries is one of the three fire signs, the others being Leo and Sagittarius. Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of War in Greek mythology.
Being the first sign Aries is often seen as the zodiac sign of new beginnings. In this way Aries is associated with first things: dawn, spring and new birth.
Like Leo and Sagittarius, the other two fire signs in the heavenly zodiac, Aries is generally considered to have a masculine, outgoing and assertive nature.
The opposite sign to Aries is the sign of Libra. The House of Libra is also known as the House of Self and the House of Libra is governed by the planet Mars, the god of war in Roman mythology. This martial flavour is reflected in the Aries personality by the traits of boldness and the urge to win and to be first in almost everything that they do.
