Each of the planets in our horoscope represents a certain type of energy that flows within us. A very specific type of energy that shapes different aspects of our personality.

The science of astrology is built on the assumption that we, as human beings are a mini-representation of the universe itself, and that we experience the influences of all 10 planets within us – through our life and consciousness.

Now think about the role of the Sun in our solar system – it is the only celestial body that shines with its own light. It is the ultimate force that gives light, warmth, and life to ALL other planets and forms of life.

It is a never-ending creative source that nourishes and lights up the whole solar system!

Sun in Aries Bad Traits and Personality Challenges

sun in aries

Sun in Aries should not forget that they are part of a community, along with other members of the team. They need to learn to pay more attention to the needs and requirements of other members of the community.

Sun in Aries need to develop more tact and consideration for the needs of others. They should learn to better cooperate with others and share mutual resources with them.

Sun in Aries people have a strong tendency to be selfish and private owners.

For the last hundred years from the history of mankind these qualities were welcome, especially in the time of the initial accumulation of capital. At that time, the entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit of Aries was the mainstay of success.

In the new era of Aquarius, however, these qualities are gradually becoming more and more undesirable and even perceived as ‘negative’. Aquarius’ humanitarian ideals of ​​a common communal life does not fit into the individualistic idea of ​​Aries for personal enrichment and accumulation of capital.

Furthermore, like the other fire signs, Sun in Aries are not particularly persevering and patient.

If things cannot be completed quickly and in the short term, their enthusiasm begins to fade and transfers towards a new idea or goal.

Therefore, Sun in Aries representatives can constantly jump from one project to another and from one idea to another without bringing them to a successful conclusion. This is why Sun in Aries need to develop more patience and perseverance.

Aries Mythology

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aries

Mars, the ruling planet of Aries, is represented in Greek mythology by Ares.

He is the son of Zeus and Hera. This god is always depicted wearing his armor, always ready for battle and war. He rarely even took off all his gear when he was intimately close to his beloved Aphrodite.

This behavior eloquently speaks of his great impatience and haste. He often fell into fits of rage, intemperance and outbursts of anger. We should therefore not be surprised to find similar traits in the character of people with a Sun in Aries, born under his strong influence.

In Roman times, Ares became Mars and began to play a much more significant role.

Being the god of war, conquests and victory, he took second place in honor after Jupiter himself. Magnificent festivals in honor of Mars were held in March. In fact, the month itself bears his name.

The ancient Romans revered him not only because he was the father of Romulus (one of the twin brothers who founded Rome), but also because he brought glory, victories and the forcible imposition of their domination in the world. Thanks to the protection of this god, the Roman Empire was able to develop the most powerful military that had ever existed.

We see that the role of Mars, the ruler of Aries, is twofold. On the one hand, this planet rules physical energy. It provides a strong charge of energy, efficiency, dynamism, zeal and enthusiasm.

Mars gives success in work, sports, promotes good health, athleticism and increased sexual energy.

On the other hand, the energy of Mars can be expended irregularly, in spurts.

That means Mars is the basis of any kind of sudden outburst of anger, impatience, irritability, pickiness and haste.

If these negative qualities of his are kept under control, then those born with the Sun in Aries can get the most out of this placement.

Sun in Aries Children

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aries

In childhood, Aries have exceptional physical energy, like other fire signs.

They usually do well in school, as they are mainly guided by their innate instinct to be first.

However, it cannot be said that Sun in Aries children are particularly persistent and patient in studying more difficult and more in-depth subjects. In this case, they quickly dissipate and engage in something else. Parents can only hope that their inspiration to learn will come when they need it most – before the exam session.

Aries children are difficult to discipline. Their free spirit prefers to hover over all restrictions. The best way is to explain to them the reason for each rule that is imposed on them.

If these rules are reasonable and make sense, they are likely to come to terms with the need to follow them. If, however, they are imposed simply to demonstrate the strength of the parents, then most likely both parties will waste a lot of time and energy in useless duels. In this case, there will be unnecessary losses and damage to both sides. Neither side could win a final victory in such a confrontation.

Sun in Aries Parents

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aries

As parents, Sun in Aries people expend a lot of energy, zeal and enthusiasm to guide their children in the right (according to them) direction. In this way, their children’s time can be filled with exciting (from the Aries point of view) activities.

Sun in Aries parents can take their children to sports, karate lessons, the movies, walks, camping, , skiing, etc. While their enthusiasm is naturally commendable, they should not forget the real reason why they put so much effort into their children.

In many cases, the answer lies in the fact that Sun in Aries parents do not only pursue the interests of their children, but also because of their own ambitions.

The children of Sun in Aries people can become a tool for fulfilling their own aspirations, which they have failed to realize.

For example, they could devote a lot of time and effort to taking their child to some kind of sport. In fact, the child may not want this. He may prefer to stay home, read a book, play a computer game, communicate with friends, etc.

At the same time one should not forget that not all children follow the abundant physical energy of their Sun in Aries parents. Therefore, as parents, Aries should develop a little more balance and tact and respect their child’s wishes more.

Sun in Aries Career

Career is very important for Sun in Aries people.

They need to engage in an activity that puts them at the forefront. It is important for them to be the first, to be pioneers, to start new projects. Therefore, they do extremely well in professions characterized by constant movement, dynamism and competition.

Sun in Aries would not last long to be locked in a dusty, boring and stuffy office, where they have to do monotonous work.

 Many of the Sun in Aries representatives have good careers in the military and the armed forces, in engineering, electronics and electrical industries, as well as in medicine.

At work they need to be given freedom of action and a wide field of expression. They are extremely ambitious, but they are not driven solely by their desire to achieve a certain goal. The goal itself is not so important. More important is the dynamism of the persecution itself.

The moment Sun in Aries people achieve something, they immediately ask themselves the question: “What is my next goal?”. What truly drives them is their desire for constant movement and development, rather than achieving a specific, definite goal.

Many of those born with a Sun in Aries have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and do very well in stock markets, large corporations and private business.

In general, they have a commercial flair and are capable of making a lot of money. They tend to be very impatient at times and invest large sums quite hastily and recklessly. If they can control this impulsiveness of theirs, Sun in Aries representatives could make the most of the good business potential inherent to them.

Sun in Aries people cannot exist without challenges in life and for this reason they can never retire in the true sense of the word. At first, they would be quite excited about the prospect of waking up in the morning and not having to do anything.

However, in just two weeks’ time they will be bored. Then they will most likely embark on a new hobby or activity that they have long wanted to pursue, but have never had enough time to. Sun in Aries representatives would not be willing to adjust to a standard of life, which is lower than what they have been accustomed to. Therefore, very soon their hobby can grow into a profession and a source of additional income.

Aries feel the need to expend the vast supply of physical energy they possess. Therefore, they will probably quickly find new type of activities that will simultaneously take up their time and bring them additional income.
