The birthdates for Aries are between March 21st and April 20th. My birthday is on the 28th.

Colour = Red, White, Pink
Metal = Iron
Stone = Ruby, Bloodstone, Garnet
Tree = Holly, Thorn, Chestnut
Plants = Thistle, Wild Rose, Woodbine

Aries is symbolized by the ram which butts its head into all enemies. Like the ram, Arians approach life head on. Arians are direct, straightforward, and uncomplicated; they expect the same from others and are baffled when others are beating around the bush. In this regard they are very much like Sagittarians.

Ruled by the planet Mars, Arians are adventurous, impulsive, and full of energy. If there is any symbol in the zodiac that states ‘I Am’ it is an Aries. Arians are well known for thinking ‘Me first, and then my family first.’ Being the first sign of the zodiac, Aries symbolizes new beginnings.

An Aries is not given to long, drawn-out emotional moments. They live their lives simply and are the least likely of all the signs to tolerate drama. A definite downfall for an Aries is their impatience but a definite strength is their innovation. Arians know what they want and they know the quickest route to get it. Independence is an Arians birthright and nothing gets them going more than a fresh slate, the promise of a new day, and a brand new start.

Emotional issues take precedence for an Aries. Arians are ruled by their own emotional needs and they are not always as concerned about others’ needs when they have one of their own emotional needs going on. Arians do not like to get bogged down in details and are adept at dismissing anything they feel is irrelevant to the situation at hand. Aries have a remarkable ability to make quick decisions and so they don’t always understand it when others sit on the fence. At times they can seem aggressive because they want an answer and they want it now; after all in their minds it is always a simple question.

Well since I am the Aries in question I will tell you that I will happily offer my opinion on any and all topics. When you ask me what I think; you can be guaranteed it won’t take forever and a day to tell you.

I just wrote a long comment that got swallowed up and spit out. I'm now speechless. But, I will be back after I calm down.

Hi Aries adventurer! I set off to Budapest Tuesday morning. Back for thursday afternoon.
I will miss reading your posts and writing to you.
Maybe a great idea for me to keep a diary well away.
I can talk to the book,lol!
Going to paint another dancing angel. Hopefully finish tomorrow? Can post off before I go.
Hope you get some sunshine this weekend. I love listening to the birds singing. Like their telling the worlds stories and sending it in the skies, like little angels. Their like sunshine.
Loads of luv and hugs!

Do Aries get along with Scorpios?

Peter Breese said...

Fascinating, our baby will be arriving any day and it looks like he'll be an Aries :). Happy early Birthday to you.

Daria said...

One more week of being younger ... are you planning anything different for next Saturday?

Flor Larios Art said...

I am the Scorpio and you are the Aries. hehe ;)

kj said...

renee, aries babies cry the signs flamed by passion and adventure. i'm a leo (humility lessons learned) and of course another fire sign.

you read the tarot, renee? me too. i started when i was twelve and my mother gave me a james bond tarot deck for christmas.

i hope your birthday will be special and blessed by all these folks, family and friends, who clearly and deeply love you. i'm glad to get to know you. !

ps word verification is dumpo. i guess that means use that aries clarity and impatience to dump anything you want, esp. on your birthday!

pRiyA said...

That is such a powerful picture of you. I always wondered about the face behind the name.

Will remember you on the 28th my dear. Will visit here again then.

Sarah said...

Good morning Renee!!! Love these!!! Great pictures! Off to write and doodle. Love you hon, Sarah

Shelly said...

Apparently Aries and Cancer tend to clash but than again opposites attract! We go together like
here & there!

studio lolo said...

That's a beautiful piece of art to represent such a strong sign!
Hubby is an Aries. I completely get the "me first" thing ;)
I'm a Leo...isn't it supposed to be all about me? (I'm more of a Cancer.)Nurturer, caregiver.

I'm still trying to think of something sweet to send you for your b'day. It may get there a little late.

Are you having a good weekend so far? I hope so ;)


glorv1 said...

I hope next week you have a wonderful b/day just in case I don't get to you then for reasons unknown, have a Great Happy Birthday and many more to come. WooooHooooo, birthday girl to be.

ben said...

Happy early birthday! Now that the Vegas trip is off, what do you have planned for your special day?
Love to you

studio lolo said...

Really, you think she looks like me? I wish!

Okay ready?

Hi Renee,
I found your blog through Nolly Posh when your comment made me want to know this amazingly strong woman. Then I came to your blog and your Aries description gave a huge insight into who you are and how you deal with life.
My sister is an aries and I have never been able to understand how she could be so different to me (a Leo), but what you wrote described her exactly. It also made me realise that so often I focus on the negatives rather than seeing them as differences in our personalities.
I thank you for your insight and will be visiting you on a regular basis from now on.
Have a happy day!

MarionL said...

I'm an Aries expert, of sorts..Tee-Hee....having been married for over 35 years to one. I have one Aries daughter who is married to an Aries and has 2 children, one a male Aries. Can you say, "A Whole Lot of Head Butting Going On"??? LOL! I LOVE you hard-headed, full steam ahead, creative, successful, strong-willed Rams! Fabulous photo with your post.

Wishing you a happy, creative, blessed, peaceful weekend. I'm so happy I know've enriched my life beyond measure. Hugs!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Well, I am an Aries as well. And my framer says no one makes decisions as fast as I do!!

Bella Sinclair said...

Direct, straightforward, uncomplicated. And that's why I love you so. I always know who to turn to when I need an opinion. Keep those horns strong and sharp, my dear.


Ces said...

Your opinion is always welcome, even if I won't listen, keep on may find an opening and ram! In you go.

lakeviewer said...

I'm calmer now, after a good night's sleep. Good to see so many friends leave their thoughts on your post. So, what did you order for this birthday? Are you flying to Vegas or Disneyworld? You have to go south, way south, where the sun blinds you and your skin talks another language.

I'd invite down to Port Orford; but I don't think it's warm enough. It never gets warm at all. In the summer, we get into the 70 degree F. You deserve hot, hot, hot. Copa
Cabana Hot.

I am an Aries through and through. I'm quick-witted, pioneering and direct in approach. My 39th birthday is coming up, er...well, my 29J birthday, that is. I stopped using numbers at age 29 and started using letters - for fun. But I fear I'm approaching the halfway point.

Ugghghhh! When I was 29, I couldn't wait to be 30. Now, as I approach the next phase in my life, I can't wait to be 40.

I don't think I'll ever want to be young again; I'm having too much fun with the knowledge that I have now, and what I will learn just around the corner.

A Cuban In London said...

Lovely post about Arians. And Happy Birthday, just in case I don'tmake it next week, although I am sure I will be here to celebrate with you! It's funny what you mention about Sagitarians as I don't think as straightforward as Aries. True what you write about the 'I Am' business. Once I had an Aries girlfriend and being a Scorpio myself (Motto 'I Feel') we were at loggerheads very often, yet managed to build a beautiful friendship once our passion fizzled out. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Good morning Renee! Hope your having a great weekend. Happy Mothers day! Mothers day and your birthday in the same week, this is great!

I received breakfast in bed, be it sugar puffs and a cup of tea. Mmmm! Cup of tea! Bit of a tea belly, I have to admit,lol!

luv and hugs!


Ces said...

Aries you beautiful?

(Okay, that was corny.)

CarolineH said...

Happy early birthday to one Arian from another. I see I'm in the best company! My daughter is March 29th so you can bet, I'll never forget your birthday my dear sweet friend. (Mine is April 6th) I hope you have a wonderful birthday week.
Love you,
Caroline xoxo

Debra said...

Oops, Aries are NOT Ruby and Garnet. I have a Leo that is Ruby or Garnet. I believe March/Aries is Aquamarine for March and Bloodstone for Aries. Did you know that bloodstones will absorb toxic energy from you? You are supposed to wear it and it will turn a greenish brown/black. Once it has changed color you can cleanse it of negative energy buy burying it next to a plant. Bloodstones were associated with the blood of Christ, and referred to as the "Martyrs Stone".
Aquamarines are a water stone. The association with water led to the belief that the Aquamarine was particularly powerful when immersed. Water in which this gemstone had been submerged was used in ancient times to heal a variety of illnesses of the heart, liver, stomach, mouth and throat. Aquamarines were also used to reverse poisoning and to aid in fortune telling.
Like you I am also a "fire" sign (December)
Happy Pre-Birthday!

studio lolo said...

Your last comment cracked me up! I've always been a good smoocher ;)

Yes, KJ is awesome. She's a new-ish friend. We'll meet when I move back to New England later this year. We've talked on the phone and chatted like old friends. It was perfect!

Note to Debra...I'm a Leo and the birthstone is Peridot.
Garnet belongs to January, and yes..March is Aquamarine :)

studio lolo said...

This canadian chick hates the cold! It will be hard enough making the transition to Rhode Island. It's even too chilly for me on the central coast of Cal!

But speaking of Manitoba, KJ asked me if I wanted to go visit you one day when I get back there ;)
See how you effect people?


kj said...


awesome begets awesome...

Aries, my opposite sign, are one of this Libran's favorite people:)

I hope one of my favorite Aries is doing well this weekend.


studio lolo said...

Dear Venus,

I'm sending a little somethin'-somethin' from an artist (not me) and I lost your address. What can I say, messy desk!
Please send it again and I will delete it.

Thanks! Smooch!

studio lolo said...

Crap! You sent it when I was seeing patients. I hope it wasn't visible too long :/
I'm not telling what it is, but I love this woman's stuff and I've sent many of her things to friends.

I just froze my buns off walking Emma (my dog.) The winde was whipping off the water and it felt like a blizzard, ni kidding.
I know you feel sorry for me!

Off to cook dinner...broiled salmon, roasted baby potatoes and baby french greenbeans sauteed in garlic.
It's a rare happening!

Love you Ms. Winnipeg,

You're such a sweetie, Renee:)

All the posts are mostly "borrowed" words, but with "consent." :D

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.


Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

Hey there, I'm back. Thanks for worrying about me. Our trip was a good one although I played lousy golf. Louisiana was a quaint as ever. Happy birthday a few days early little Miss Aries! I sure missed everyone while I was away!
xxxooo Lizzy :-)

A Palmer said...

Hope it warms up for you soon, Renee! Warm thoughts and hugs flying your way. xoxoxo

Ces said...

I received it and cleared it from my blog comment section. Thanks. I am up to no good and I want to give it to you. Hahaha! Just kidding. You know I am kidding, right? You must know. I hope you are having a wonderful evening.

Ces said...

Goodnight,sweet Renee.

Maithri said...

A very happy early Birthday my friend,

Sending warm wings of light to enfold you,


Björnik said...

This is definitely a Renee post. I love you for being so straightforward my dear.


Tessa said...

Ah, now I understand. Lovely Aries, sometimes fierce, sometimes gentle, always mandla. (Mandla = powerful in Zulu)

Happy birthday, happy days forever, Renee. (Early, just in case I've flown away somewhere again - but I'll try not to because I must say it properly on the day.)

Tessa said...

PS Do Aquarians and Aries love each other? All my family are Geminis. My friends various.
