Characteristic traits of Aries – the good and the bad
Ruled by the red planet Mars, cardinal modality and belongs to the fire element signs. That’s enough hints to figure out that Aries are intense and full of energy. They are characterized as fearless and bold.
Good characteristics explained
Aries is known as the rebel of the zodiacs. This is because they choose to make their way in everything and take on the role of a leader very well. That’s why Aries is called natural-born leaders.
They are confident beings who know their worth and are not afraid to prove it to others. Brave and bold are other two strong qualities that define Aries. They are hungry for new experiences and are not scared easily by threatening situations that life may throw towards them.
Wanting to go on an adventure and looking for the perfect companion? Then, Aries will be the ideal pick for you. With their ‘ready for anything’ attitude, any obstacle in the journey will merely seem like another adventure for them. However, they are great at tackling difficult situations courageously.
Similarly, Aries is filled with energy and spontaneity. They hate repetition and having the same schedule for a long time. They are always coming up with ways to add some extra fun to their life. If you’ve been meaning to bring some change into your boring regular routine, you know who to call! Things don’t go according to plan? Don’t worry, an Aries will help you find your way around the situation.
This is why Aries make great friends and are popular in friend circles. Their leadership skills, confidence, and energy are exactly what people look for in a friend. A bonus point to all those is their generous nature. They do not hesitate to help a friend or loved one in need.
People usually turn to Aries for help. They are generous, great at problem-solving and also, brutally honest. An Aries will not bother sugar-coating the truth or their opinions to you. You will get exactly what you asked for with an Aries. They value their opinions and will be straightforward during conversations.
However, they also have a sensitive side to them. Although Aries aren’t always bold and outspoken, they also have s sensitive and emotional side. They are great listeners and will try to empathize with your problems. They are also said to be optimistic beings. An Aries will try to find the light in the dark and look at the bright side instead of dwelling on the bad stuff.
Bad characteristics explained
The confident and honest Aries are usually likable among other people, but some of their characteristic traits might make them look like the bad guy in situations.
Aries are notorious for having a short temper. It’s all fun and games until their temper is messed with. Their anger tends to get out of control, and often they end up lashing out at other people on a whim.
They aren’t good with matters that require patience, either. Making them wait is one of the things that gets them angry. They are quick to make decisions and finish tasks, and when other people fail to do so, it provokes their anger more than ever. If they say they want something, then it means they want it NOW! So although they are good at making decisions, their impatience leads them to cause rash, impulsive actions that they might regret later on.
What is most dear to an Aries, you ask? Well, their opinions and thoughts make it on the top of that list. Aries think that they’ve done all the research and have all the facts laid out on the table to back up their opinion. But oftentimes, they come off as arrogant and stubborn because of this attitude.
People belonging to this zodiac sign are known to be very competitive. They want to emerge out as the best in everything. They have arrogance which makes them think that they are better than everyone. This behavior can be toxic at times because it’s impossible to win every time.
Additionally, another hidden negative trait of Aries is selfishness. They appear to be the perfect generous, and helpful friends, but people will fail to see through their selfish motives. They might help others only if there’s something in it for them too. They are not willing to help others at the expense of their comfort or benefits.
All these combined leave Aries with another trait that makes them difficult people to deal with, and that’s aggression. Their competitiveness, arrogance, and impulsiveness will lead them to display aggression towards others if they don’t get what they want. Unfortunately, this also leads them to be emotionally weak.
Aries in relationships
Behind the bold exterior, Aries has a soft heart that is full of love. They fall in love hard and fast. Due to their impulsive nature tends to fall in love quickly, and once they find someone, they are willing to give it all.
What to expect from Aries in a relationship? Expect honesty, clarity, and passion. Aries are open to their partners about their emotions, and they do not like to keep things hidden (which means they can get moody). They want to have a clear understanding from both sides. They will tell you how they are feeling and expect the same communication from you.
However, things might get rocky with Aries when they feel that the relationship isn’t fun enough for them. The same old things you two did when you first met months ago are not enough to keep the spontaneous Aries interested and satisfied. They always want something new from the relationship. If one manages to fulfill this desire of Aries, then they will get a loving, passionate, and fun-loving partner in return.
