Aries' Planet: ♂ Mars.
Aries is a natural-born leader, and there's simply no denying it. From your very first encounter with an Aries, you can practically feel on your skin the principal attribute of this Zodiac sign – an unwavering self-confidence and belief in their righteousness.
Even when an Aries is silent, their every gesture radiates an inner firmness and resolve. And should they speak… Trust me, arguing with an Aries is hardly a promising endeavor.
The reason for this is simple: Aries is the first sign of the entire Zodiac, symbolizing the birth of Life, the origin of all beginnings. Hence, astrologers worldwide have inevitably compared the character of an Aries to that of a newborn baby. The Aries' "I" takes first place in the Universe. According to their strong conviction, the whole world revolves around them and should adapt accordingly. It's no surprise that an Aries may simply overlook the desires and needs of others, yet be so tenderly attentive to their own.
Much like a baby who immediately alerts the whole world to their desires with a persistent cry, an Aries deems it necessary to proclaim their wants, demanding from those around them - and even from Fate itself - what they believe to be rightfully theirs. Their style isn't about finding complicated routes, but achieving desires in the simplest ways possible. Surprisingly, this self-confidence often yields results: both the people around them and Fate truly seem to meet the egotistical Aries halfway, helping them achieve their goals.
However, Aries' egotism and even self-centeredness are largely tempered by their other "childlike" traits. Indeed, it's hard to take offense at someone who explores the world around them with such relentless curiosity, recklessly leaps to the defense of the weak, or takes their interlocutor's words at face value. Aries is sincere and honest, always expecting the same from others.
In a relationship with an Aries, you can be sure of one invaluable trait: they never harbor grudges or spin cunning intrigues behind your back. They lay themselves bare before you: if something about you doesn't satisfy them, they will tell you with complete candor. Should conflict arise, it's not hard to provoke an Aries - brace yourself for their volatile and sudden fits of rage, which, however, pass as quickly as a May storm.
Unashamed to tell others to their face everything they think about them (which isn't always pleasant), Aries, like any child, is always inwardly craving recognition, approval, and praise. Despite their self-confidence, sometimes excessive, they can react quite painfully to criticism directed at them, while praise and even coarse flattery can buoy their spirits.
In their work, Aries always aims for leadership and set goals, ideally for recognition and glory, and often achieves it. They are independent, energetic, capable of taking responsibility, and during periods of failure, their optimism and incredible faith in themselves prevent them from giving up for long. In other words, Aries is a born leader with every chance of reaching the highest peaks.
Sincere and truthful, active and persistent, brave and generous, with a keen sense of justice, Aries is a true leader. Despite obstacles, they're ready to move forward, paving the way for those following them. Their energy is boundless, as is their self-belief, and they ceaselessly seize everything from life, only to generously share with others.

Aries Communication Secrets
Under no circumstances should you begin a conversation with an Aries by talking about your problems! If you wish to lament to them about your fate or ask for help, first inquire about Aries' affairs, because they are the center of the Universe. It is their prerogative to dictate the direction your conversation will take.
To get an Aries to listen to you, first prove yourself to be a good listener (challenging or expressing an opinion contrary to that of Aries is forbidden), and only then might they condescend to discuss issues that concern you. Describe the situation as vividly as possible – Aries values eloquent conversational partners.
Despite their desire to take the leading role in dialogue, Aries can't stand passive or incompetent people, they enjoy a spirited discussion with a knowledgeable individual. They will gladly engage with you on a topic in which you are an expert. But don't expect open praise from them or a concession of defeat in a debate. More likely, in such a conversation, they will try to prove to you that they are not a novice, and that they understand much of what you are explaining to them.
An Aries will never admit that you were able to change their mind. Even if this is the case, they will pretend they arrived at your conclusion themselves. If you want to avoid conflict – play along, pretend that's exactly how it happened. The most foolish thing you can do when communicating with an Aries is trying to prove your superiority. They cannot tolerate competition. On the other hand, if you ask Aries for advice, they will assuredly add you to their list of favorites.
