For thousands of years, mankind has looked to the stars to find answers and determine their destiny. In early times, astrology helped ancient people calculate the best times for planting and harvesting crops. Today, astrology provides answers about strengths and challenges within people's personalities. It can be used to plan career paths or to explore romantic partnerships. Each of the 12 signs of the zodiac correlates with unique traits depending on the alignment of the planets at birth. Those born between March 21 and April 20 are born under the sign of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac.


1. The Planet Mars Rules Aries

Mars was the Roman god of war, who relished conflict and violence, but, as the patron god of soldiers, his worshippers heralded him as the protector of the Roman army. In Roman religion, Mars was the father of Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers who founded Rome. Mars’ name likely originates from the god of war due to its blood-red color. In fact, astrologists often consider the color red to be an Arien’s lucky color. In astrology, Mars controls both virility and fertility. It fuels Arien motivation and initiative, yet is also responsible for its impulsive tendencies.
