Aries or Mesh is the first sign of the Zodiac. It is indicated by a Ram. The symbol of Aries is indicated by Ram's horns. In heavens it starts from 0 degrees and extends up to 29 degrees. The Sun stays in Aries from 14th April to 14th May as per sidereal zodiac which is followed by Vedic Astrologers and from 21st March to 20th April as per Tropical Zodiac followed by Western Astrologers. The entry and exit dates of the Sun for any particular zodiac sign dose vary by one day during some years.
Aries is ruled by planet Mars, its cardinal, fiery, masculine sign, governs head, brain, and the first house of the horoscope. Its characteristics are vitality, courage, strong physical energy, strong personality, strong will and egoism. It symbolizes beginning, energy for primal initiation, impulsive need for personal actualization and building of personality and individuation.
Aries is the point of all beginning. The person with his sun in Aries is in the process of building a new personality. All the energies are self-centered and self-directed. The Arian assumes authority quickly, but must resist the impulse to "ram" ahead, pushing whoever is there out of the way. It is natural for the Arians to assume authority and responsibility. They can be inspired forces within a group. They are an inspiration to others. Ideas and creative projects seem to flow from them in a never-ending stream. They are full of energy and never lack courage. However, they can, also, project the negative traits of their sun sign. Negative traits come into being when the person misuses his positive traits. Because of this, you will find Arians who are self-centered. They are apt to forget that other people may have good ideas and can assume responsibility, too. This makes it difficult to form a partnership with an Arian. It is, also, difficult for an Arian to be an employee. Their natural instinct is to be the employer. They have a tendency to start a project, then to suddenly lose interest in it if the progress is slow or things have become complicated.
Aries like all other zodiac signs contains three Nakshatra or lunar mansion, which are Ashwini Nakshatra, Bharani Nakshatra and one forth of the Krittika Nakshatra.

If you can not keep up with their constantly changing interests, they will move on to new friends. The Aries is well liked for their edge, so making new friends is never a big problem. Friends are nice, but not exactly necessary for independent Aries. Ruled by the First House of Self and selfishness can sometimes take the upper hand when it is a choice between people and possessions. On the other hand, the Aries can be very warm toward their friends. As long as Aries feels that they are the number one friend in your life, you can count on having an exciting whirlwind of fun.

Arian parents tend to push their children too hard in school. Their lack of patience doesn't help, either. Even so, they make good parents.Your children will be able to keep up with you if your life is fast track. Parenting is just one of the experiences among many in your mind. Not that you do not take it seriously but you see no reason why it ca not be incorporated into other adventures you undertake.
