Were you born on March 31st? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Aries, the sign of the ram. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Aries. Learn the basics of your horoscope below.

Aries Overview

Aries is known as मेष (mesha) in Sanskrit, or “ram.” Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. This includes Symbol, Planetary Ruler, Element, Nature, and Gender. The general makeup of the Aries sign is below:

  • Sign of the Ram. Aries natives are headstrong and can be natural leaders. However, their competitive side might get them into trouble!
  • Ruled by Mars. Mars is the planet of war, explosions, sudden events, and land. Martian individuals are hardworking and self-confident.
  • A fire sign. Those with an Aries moon are temperamental, passionate, and energetic.
  • A movable sign. Persons born under this sign are fluid, spontaneous, and fond of change.
  • A masculine sign. This makes the native aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned.
  • Aries’ preferred gemstone is red coral. Ariens can also benefit from pink coral.

Traits of the Sun in Aries

In Western Astrology, also known as Tropical astrology, a person’s sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on March 31st, then you’re considered an Aries according to most people in the Western world.

The influence of the Sun in a birth chart will change depending on which house it is located in, its relative position in relation to other planets, as well as other factors. However, the following general traits are likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Aries:

  • You are respected in your field. Of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, the Sun is strongest in Aries. Ruled by the Sun’s friend, Mars, Aries is a sign of leadership and innovation. You are a natural leader among your friends and in your workplace.
  • You are ambitious. You aren’t the kind of person who likes to live a simple, predictable life. You want to do something meaningful. You enjoy taking on fresh challenges, and you are able to overcome whatever obstacles come in your path.
  • You have confidence in yourself. No matter what happens around you, you never lose your inherent self-confidence. This trait will win you many friends and admirers, who will naturally look up to you and follow your lead.
  • You will have money throughout life. Because of your many good qualities and your strong work ethic, it is not difficult for you to make money. You are courageous, bold, and a natural leader. These traits also make you a desirable partner in business, a reliable manager, and a valuable team member.
  • You can sometimes be aggressive. Aries is a fiery sign, and this, combined with the Sun’s power, can sometimes cause you to be overly aggressive. You may accidentally intimidate or hurt others if you’re not careful. Try to find a healthy outlet for your aggressive and competitive nature, such as sports or daily exercise.

Aries Careers

Ariens are enterprising folks and are therefore likely to make a good living. However, if a healthy work-life balance isn't kept, they may grow ill from anxiety and too many hours on the job.

Recommended careers: Anything innovative or related to leadership. Aries natives make wonderful scientists, writers, engineers, lawyers, politicians, actors, performers, police officers, entrepreneurs.

Careers to avoid: You may want to avoid career paths that require a high degree of tact, patience, or self-control. For example, diplomats, childcare professionals, stockbrokers, or mediators.

Aries Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. Most suffering takes place only within the mind, and by practicing mantra meditation, we can experience total relief from all suffering and negativity.

The Vedic wisdom texts offer many different mantras, powerful and sacred sound vibrations, that are customized for each individual depending on their unique, personal circumstances.

Ariens can especially benefit by meditating with the following mantra:

ॐ नरसिंहदेवाय नमः (Om narasimha-devaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras that are effective for different people according to their particular situation. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
