Damn. Maybe I am much more of an Aries than I thought.
"Aries speaks the truth often without thinking first. Mars energy causes them to feel things so intensely that nothing else matters to them except to express it in the moment.
"They are known to be brutally honest and quite blunt which can disturb others. Most people do not want to hear anything negative even if it is true. Aries is not trying to tick you off, trust me; they are trying to express who they are. What they think and feel comes directly out of their mouth in a direct, straightforward way. They do not have time to wait around and find the right word to make others feel better because they feel that time is of the essence.
"They have an enormous amount of physical energy that needs to be expressed.
"They... do not like to be told what to do because they like to act on their own instincts. Sometimes this behavior can get them into trouble but they do not care. It is their natural tendency to react in the moment. They will think about the consequences later and most of the time they really do not care.... They want to be self-reliant and hate to feel dependent on anyone. The good thing about Aries is that they get over things quickly. It is hard for them to stay angry at anyone or any situation because it ties them down. They quickly forgive and forget.
"One of the hardest things for individuals to understand about Aries is that their spiritual mission is to be Self-Centered. They are meant to learn how to express self concern verbally. They are forced to always ask how things affect them first....
"Aries key word is 'I AM'. Other personality traits of Aries include enthusiastic, honest, passionate, independent, self-reliant, blunt and dynamic. Aries is friendly, confident, physically strong, aggressive, energetic and loves to keep moving. In many situations Aries must learn patience. Sometimes in life we cannot immediately act. We are forced to wait patiently and this is very hard for Aries to tolerate. Work situations can be extremely hard for Aries if they have a supervisor who is more laid back and controlling. Aries can perceive this as slow and that they are being held back. Aries wants to find the solution, problem, and way to go and then act on it! They do not want to wait around and think about it. This causes great inner frustration and conflict with others in the environment. They want to get the job done and that is good but sometimes others do not have the same idealistic nature. They are constantly tested with learning to be patient with others."
