Courageous. Determined. Passionate. Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, and they have a lot of great qualities. If you’ve got a little Aries at home, you’re probably thinking you’ve got a stubborn little human on your hands since their symbol is the Ram. However, when researching this sign, stubbornness wasn’t mentioned in the list of Aries traits. Trust me, I looked. So maybe Rams aren’t as stubborn as we think? They might have quite the temper though. More on that later…

Over the years, I’ve known quite a few Aries. I dated one back in college, my good friend was born at the end of March, and I know a handful of others as well. So, I had quite a few people to keep in mind when I was reading about the stereotypical characteristics Rams are traditionally known to have. Turns out – most of the Aries I know fit the descriptions. Now, that’s not to say your little Aries will too, but it’s fun to read about the possibilities, right?

If you’re currently raising a confident little Ram, or you’re expecting one to arrive soon, let’s see what the experts have to say about what you can look forward to!

First, we’ll start with the basics of the Aries sign.

  • Birthdate – March 21 – April 19
  • Element – Fire Sign
  • Symbol – The Ram

Yes, a fire sign. Along with Leo and Sagittarius, Aries belongs to the element of fire and is considered the most active zodiac sign. It’s in their nature to take action…sometimes before thinking.

Below is a list of typical positive and negative traits of Aries. Your little one might have some, or maybe they have all of them! Let’s hope they have all the positive traits at least. Fingers crossed! (You can find the whole list here)

Positive Traits

Leadership – The first sign of the zodiac means leadership. Aries like to take charge of every situation and try to control others to achieve success. They are natural leaders.

Optimism – Want an optimistic outlook on life? Ask an Aries. No matter how challenging the situation, an Aries is always able to put a positive spin on things. They aren’t big complainers, and they typically have plenty of friends due to their sunny disposition.

Confidence – Self-confidence should not be an issue for your Ram. They have a strong sense of self, and strong opinions as well. Others are often drawn to their confident vibe.

Organization – Manager. Director. Team Leader. The Ram personality is perfect for all of these with their outstanding organizational skills.

Creativity – Since Aries are so optimistic, they’re creative too. It takes a creative mind to continue to find the positive side to every situation.


Negative Traits

Aggression – When it gets to the point where a Ram can no longer control their behaviour, it results in bursts of rage. It’s best to give them some time to calm down.

Selfishness – Those born under this sign are often seen as selfish. They will always do what it takes to win, and it’s said they usually only think of themselves.

Explosive Temper – Remember that temper I mentioned earlier? Well, apparently it can get quite explosive. Aries are known for having very short fuses. There is some good news though! These bursts of anger are typically short lived. Phew!

Now that we know a little bit more about Aries, let’s see what they stereotypically like and dislike. As a fellow fire sign, I found that I was able to relate to quite a few of these!


Comfortable Clothes – I’m totally on board with this one! I live in leggings and hoodies 24/7. You’d think my youngest was an Aries as well. Since he was very young, he was absolutely against any kind of pants that had buttons or a zipper. He’s 12 now and continues to feel the same way.

Leadership Roles – Aries are born leaders, so it’s only natural that they will gravitate towards roles in leadership positions.

Individual Sports – If you notice your youngster isn’t excelling in team sports, maybe try an individual sport like swimming or tennis.


Delays – Delayed flights. Online orders not arriving on time. Aries is having none of it!

Inactivity – As I mentioned earlier, Aries is the most active sign of the zodiac. It’s in their nature to be on the move physically and mentally, so they aren’t big fans in inactivity.

Does this sound like your little Ram or another Aries you know? If not, that’s okay. Astrological signs are meant to be fun and not be taken too seriously. I mean, when was the last time you read your horoscope and it actually came true?
