Other zodiac signs have personality traits that are fixed. It just so happens that there are fixed zodiac signs who are considered to be particularly stubborn, like a Taurus, which is a fixed zodiac sign.

Then, there are sensitive zodiac signs, who tend to change and adapt well to the mood of others. Coincidentally, signs described as being intuitive like Pisces, exhibit these same personality traits, and is considered to be a mutable sign, which in astrology means 'likely to change'.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The POSITIVE things about you:

As an Aries, you enjoy the rush of taking risks. You love to be spontaneous. You put a lot of effort into pursuing what you love, which is why when other signs think of fire, you're at the top of the list. The Ram is the most passionate zodiac sign of them all.

Aries are extremists. She is either ALWAYS first to show up (to EVERYTHING!) since lateness is a HUGE pet peeve of hers, or late because she didn't want to show up in the first place. No matter what time she arrives, an Aries female is always AMAZING.  Her friends know she is reliable and dependable, when you need her she'll be there no matter what.

It's hard to get an Aries down about anything — you always try to look at the bright side of life. You insist on seeing the positive in any situation.

And above all, you're self-motivated. When there’s a goal in mind, you'll stop at nothing to achieve your dreams — no matter what gets in your way.

Your NEGATIVE traits:

Being able to understand other people’s emotions is very important, especially if you want to have long lasting friendships.

Because of your stubborn personality, this is something you may find yourself struggling with. Don’t just assume you know everything, because even the most intelligent people on Earth are wrong sometimes.

Another thing stubborn people struggle with is being patient. It’s okay to be determined, but real dedication is not expecting immediate results. If you’re working towards something long-term, don’t give up just because you’re not seeing immediate changes.
