You can improve the dynamics of a stressful relationship today by consciously going out of your way to reflect on what you hear. Instead of only half-listening because youre crafting your next snappy comeback, take in each word fully. Theres no need to drive your point home or prove the other person wrong. Being present without judgment changes the nature of your interactions. You can begin a real conversation after you step outside of your emotions and step into someone elses shoes. Novelist Mohsin Hamid wrote, Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.

Aries are very affectionate people, in spite of the "me first" tendency. They are passionate and generous toward their loved ones. With warm and enthusiastic natures, they can be very demonstrative.
Sociable gregarious extroverts, Arians are fantastic to have around because they tend to add life and soul to any party because of their energetic, bouncy, enthusiastic nature. At times the Aries personality becomes very dark indeed when crossed by a lover.
A broken hearted Aries is a seriously sad (or angry) person. In spite of their cheerful exterior, Arians are tender and emotionally fragile people. Prone to falling in love at first sight, they instantly put their partners on a pedestal. This is usually were the trouble begins.
Unless the two of you can talk through differences, the Arian will be very disappointed on discovering that their partner is less then perfect...
The romantic idea of being faithful to one person forever is appealing to Aries because of their strong sense of romance. However, if things go bad he or she may stray, in search of more attention, excitement and love.
Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius (most compatible is Leo).
Aries has a fiery personality, and can be quite head strong. This can make them hard to match with other people, but also make them very passionate with some. Leo and Aries are perhaps the best of all matches, but if things go wrong and one betrays the other, it can get explosively ugly!
Hardly a match made in heaven Aries and Cancer tend to clash. Do not despair if you are in one of these relationships, true love will overcome. Both Aries and cancer are powerful and very self expressive. However, Cancer can be sensitive and somewhat anxious while Aries people are dominant and spontaneous. Aries is not the greatest at expressing their feelings. This leads to the constant annoyance of the moody, retrospective Cancer.
Aries represents the first zodiac sign. According to Greek mythology, it was the Ram with the Golden Fleece sent by Hermes to save the two royal children: Phryxus and Hellé, thus allowing them to escape the sacrifice for which their mother-in-law had intended them. The Ram was then sacrificed to Zeus and its fleece preserved and kept by a dragon. Finally, Jason and its argonauts, come on a boat called Argo, ended up conquering it. Aries is one of the least conspicuous of the zodiacal constellations, and has only two stars above third magnitude.
These are Hamal and Sheratan, the Alpha and Beta stars of the constellation. Unusually, these two stars not only appear to be close together in the sky, but actually are: they lie just six light years from one another.
Loves adventure, very energetic, inventive with lots of courage.
Confident, enthusiastic,sharp and quick-minded. Fiery and warm, passionate and expressive. Possessing a strong sense of urgency.
Can be self-centered at times and prone to being quick-tempered,
Impulsive and impatient. Takes unnecessary risks and a procrastinator at times.
The Aries person seeks adventure and has unusually high energy level. Pioneering, Aries will be the first to take a risk. There were no doubt, a lot of Aries day traders when that first became popular for example.
The sunsign Aries is considered by their peers to be a courageous leader, not afraid to take risks, will often feel confident that "They know better". Aries always seems to have a quick grasp of essence of most any situation, BUT aries does not often hang around to closely examine the details. However, give fiery Aries a cause, or a good reason to fight for something, a problem to solve, or a fresh new idea to ponder, and you will find this dynamic personality rises to the cause.
Aries is also a very dynamic person and can easily draw attention to themselves when they enter a room. Make no mistake, an Aries person will be on of the first to risk their life to save yours, and also the first to get really mad at you for putting yourself at risk in the first place!
This zodiac sign tends to have more then it's fair share o good heath, very vigorous with a strong constitution. Being one to be impatient, ever ready for the next challenge, Aries simply does not have the time to be sick. They have incredible powers of recovery, and when ill, they do not stay ill long.
When they are ill it seems to mostly be headaches and fevers, but seem to "burn off" in no time. Interesting because they are a fire sign. They have lots of stamina and appear to live off of adrenalin. This causes them to be tireless workers, but if not given the proper direction their stamina will suffer.
Aries needs to come to terms with the fact they are not super heroes, not invulnerable, and that getting the proper amount of relaxation is a must. Brisk walks or a nice competitive sport should be just what the need to work off any excess aggression. Their energy levels sometimes fluctuate wildly, and their diet is very important. Aries should avoid coffee and sugar because these things tend to stress out aries.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the first in any modern (or old) astrology sun-sign list. This strangely enough, often transfers to the person born under aries into a "me first" type personality. Very active and outgoing, the Aries person has all the mental tools needed to make their mark on the world. Unfortunately this can lead to a selfish, egotistical outlook on life. (for some, not all)
remember, what Aries wants, Aries usually gets...
Money and fame many times find this zodiac sign, and lots of famous people share your sun sign. Don't be surprised if the Aries in your life has big dreams and plans for a bright future.
The spring equinox, March 21, is the beginning of the new zodiacal year and Aries, the first sign, is therefore that of new beginnings. The young ram is adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic
and full of energy. The Arian is a pioneer both in thought and action, very open to new ideas and a lover of freedom. They welcome challenges and will not be diverted from their purpose except by their own impatience, which will surface if they don't get quick results. Aries subjects are courageous leaders with a genuine concern for those they command, being responsible people, it is rare that they will use their subordinates to obtain their own objectives as leaders, but occasionally it does happen. They do not make very good followers because they are too "take charge". They may be unwilling to obey or submit to directions for which they can see no reason, or with which they disagree. They are much concerned with self, both positively and negatively - self-reliant but also self centered (sometimes) and concerned with their own personal advancement and physical satisfaction. Their immense energy makes them aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally, headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they feel themselves affronted.
As the first sign in the zodiac, you, as an Arian (as you are referred to), is to simply "get something started and lead the way". The Sun in this zodiac position gives your will free rein to express itself. You could be doing this in the form of some leadership role, or by forcing others to look at themselves in a new way. You can accomplish this by knowingly carrying out a deliberate act in the name of some cause that moves you. A negative effect of this sun sign is that you could sometimes unknowingly make it hard for others to relate to you, as you really are.
In your personal relationships Arians are frank, direct and candid, and make enthusiastic and generous friends. You are liable to have a high sex drive and make passionate but fastidious lovers. There is, however, a negative side to your associations with other people. You can easily be irritated by slowness or moderation in your companions and, though yourselves sensitive, ride roughshod over the sensitivities of others. The intensity of your sexual urges can drive you to promiscuity and a Don Juan-like counting of conquests of the opposite sex. It can also trick you into early unwise marriage which may end disastrously. Arians are highly devoted to their children, even to the point of laying down their own lives, so that they might live. You will not find a more defensive and loving parent in all the zodiac.
It is preferable to be aware of your pioneering spirit and not disregard it. For in acknowledging it you not only enjoy life more, but you avoid being pushed around by others. Your nature is usually push or be pushed, with little middle ground. This can at times be objectionable to others, but you must have the freedom to act, rather then just thinking about it, getting pent-up in the process. At all costs you need to avoid negative emotions such as resentment, regret and self-pity, for they would deny you what is essential to your nature: straightforwardness.
Mentally Arians are intellectual and objective, but can be in rare situations bigoted and extremist in religion and politics. They are good champions of lost causes and last-ditch resistance. They are quick-witted but sometimes foolhardy and over optimistic, lacking thoroughness and the ability to evaluate difficulties in the undertakings into which they often rush impulsively. The great need of Aries natives is to exercise an iron self-control, to discipline the qualities and tendencies of their character to the advantage, not the detriment, of the society in which they move.
As an Arian, you like a challenge that will stir you to action. This challenge may just be frustration; or at a more controlled level, you may have clear direction and know what or whom you're fighting for. If your direction is not clear, then ask yourself and listen to your inner voice. You will come up with an answer. An Arian without a direction in which to go, or a without a cause to fight for, would be against your nature and make you more a "sheep" then a ram!
Arian, do not be afraid to be forceful, for this is the very core of your nature. If you feel fear in your heart, then look for a history of negative events in you personal history, such as violence or abuse from others. Being fearful may also indicate a household in childhood that negated independence and personal initiative in you. This could have inhibited your natural urge to go forward into life as the leader and champion you were born to be. Conversely, such bad influences could also have led you to be overly forceful, or to be unsympathetic to your own need and sensitivity.
You make good athletes and climbers, doctors, explorers (of new ideas as well as uncharted territory, the latter in these days including adventuring into outer space), soldiers, sailors and airmen, and leaders, though awkward subordinates, in industry and politics.
Much as you are the Ram, there is still the little lamb in you, which means that at times you would attain your goals more easily by gently giving in without resistance to the demands of a given social situation, rather than getting your horns entangled in something larger and more powerful than yourself. This is a talent akin to knowing the difference between what you can change, and what you cannot. This of course takes patience, the acquiring of which is definitely your greatest achievement, along with your sense of your own inner softness.
Possible Health Concerns
Aries governs the head and brain, and Arians are said to be prone to headaches, particularly migraines, sunstroke, neuralgia and depression. Indigestion and nervous disorders are also threats to you, and your rashness, impetuosity and wholesale physical commitment make you liable to accidents and physical injuries.
You like extremes. Physical, emotional and mental, and benefit profoundly by experiencing them; but if your extremism goes too far beyond social acceptability, then expect to be extremely lonely.
PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS
As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As an Arian you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.
PROBLEM: Projects that come to nothing. Partnerships full of conflict and argument.
SOLUTION: See your role as the "person with ideas" then, work on inspiring others to carry them out. Develop a higher capacity to "listen" and not speak.
PROBLEM: Lacking real coherence and direction. Failing to contemplate, only pretending to be decisive.
SOLUTION: What springs from your actions is only a reflection of your heart. Soul search and resolve some personal issues you may have buried.
PROBLEM: Being deserted by others because they cannot make you notice them and their feelings in any other way.
SOLUTION: If you truly have a point, if you don't they won't. Examine your attitude and put yourself in their shoes.
PROBLEM: Always tripping over yourself, inviting conflict and harsh treatment. Getting deflated.
SOLUTION: Learn the art of looking before you leap. Which means first finding out what it is you wish to make happen first, then act.
