What Type Of Aries Are You?

Photographed by Rochelle Brock.
You might not feel it just yet, but things are starting to heat up, and it's no wonder why. Today signals the start of two major phases of the year, stargazers: springtime and Aries season. As the outside world begins to thaw, we'll feel the warm, passionate influence of this fire sign make its way into our lives. Hotter heads will prevail, tempers will flare, and life will come at us much faster than it did during Pisces season.
Aries, the sign of the Ram, gets its aggressive reputation from its ruling element, fire, and its ruling planet, Mars. We have this potent combo to thank for the rapid-fire reaction time and desire to go, go, go that we normally associate with people born under this sign.

But, of course, not every single Aries behaves the same way. Different things will bring out their competitive side, and some Rams would rather look out for the little guy than for number one. Despite this sign's often confrontational presence and extremely direct approach to life, there's more than meets the eye with Aries people. Ahead, we break down the main personality types that you might meet when you encounter an Aries.

The Youngest Sibling

The Youngest Sibling

Some Aries people are eternally young at heart. On one hand, this means they have seemingly endless energy reserves and are always up for a joke. But, if they don't get their way or are stuck sharing the spotlight with others, they may express their frustration by complaining or sulking in the same way you might see a child lash out at their parent. Luckily, this type of Aries won't sit and stew for long. They're far more likely to just leave and find somewhere they feel more appreciated than to linger and wait to be catered to.

The Juggernaut

The Juggernaut

Even if you've never met an Aries, it's likely you've heard about their need for action, confrontational attitude, and overall desire to be in your face as much as possible. You have the Juggernaut to thank for that image. These are the Aries people who throw themselves whole-heartedly into both their work and passion projects. They take pride in not only being the first ones to try something, but in being the ones who did it best, too. More often than not, this group of Aries is dealing with an internal sense of competition. So, you can give them a hand, add to their cheering section, or simply stand to the side while they charge ahead. They'll meet you at the finish line.

The Hero

The Hero

Where the Youngest Sibling takes their ball and goes home and the Juggernaut forges ahead on new and hazardous paths, the Hero brings up the rear by looking out for others who could use their help. This noble iteration of the Aries personality never shies away from speaking up or taking the lead on a project — especially if they're doing so to combat some form of injustice. These Aries people are the ones who log as many volunteer hours as they clock at their 9-to-5 job. They love attention as much as any other Aries but would rather use their platform to argue for their cause than to sing their own praises. This is the Aries you want in your corner.
