A Trailblazer

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, and people with this sign tend to be trailblazers. They are adventurous, brave, passionate and independent, and are never scared to be the first to try something. Rather than following the crowd, an Aries prefers to go their own way and blaze their own path, and will never do something just because everyone else is doing it.

A Fierce Competitor

As much as Aries likes to go first, they like to be first even more. Which means that they tend to be hyper-competitive in everything they do. Aries personalities try to turn everything into a competition of some kind. Walking to class together? Let’s see who’ll get there first! An Aries will find an excuse to have a friendly competition over just about anything.

Passionately Committed

While independent and competitive, Aries still make for great friends. This is because Aries tend to be passionate and committed to whatever it is they do, and this includes how they handle friendships and relationships. Fiercely loyal, honest, and generous, an Aries is a friend you will always want in your corner.

Brutally Honest

An Aries will never hesitate to tell you what they're thinking, with a frankness that may occasionally border on rudeness. But even if an Aries seems overly blunt with their opinion, that's only because they value honesty above all else. Directness and honesty are hallmarks of an Aries person.

Highly Impulsive

The mind of an Aries is always going a million miles an hour, so slowing down for others can be very frustrating for them. This makes Aries seem highly impulsive and they can indeed have more of a "jump first, look second" approach to things. The world according to an Aries makes so much sense to them that they have a hard time listening to, much less accepting, alternative viewpoints. Slowing down to consider other perspectives is not one of their strong points.


When you have someone who combines an independent streak, a fiercely competitive nature, total frankness, and impulsivity, you are bound to find that they have a pretty short fuse as well. So it’s no surprise that Aries tend to have a fiery temper. You won’t find an Aries playing the passive-aggressive card: when they are upset, you will definitely know it.
