The things you really need to know when getting caught up with a Ram, as told by an Aries.

Whether we want to admit it or not, we’ve all got good and bad traits in us.

The Aries zodiac sign is no different. A person born with Aries as their Sun sign has some awesome personality traits … and some crappy ones as well —ah, don’t we all?

The Aries personality is admittedly a sensitive subject. Since we all want to be liked, it can be difficult to admit the less than likable aspects of our zodiac personalities. We all want to think we’re doing great and have little to no flaws, but it’s not true.

We’re all human and therefore, we all have flaws and weaknesses; and frankly, we’re not always likable. It can suck to be human sometimes and it's even worse when you can't change your core personality traits, you just learn how to deal with them the best way that you can.

I’ll be the first to admit that my personal weakness is candy (yes, my mouth contains an obscene number of fillings, get off my back) and I become quite unlikeable if I’ve gone too many days without a candy fix (it’s a becoming a real problem.

Sugar addicts anonymous, here I come).

However, in an attempt to make up for this fact, I am also an avid flosser (although my eight filling would argue, futilely so) and a yoga enthusiast. Although,

As an Aries Sun sign, myself, I am determined to maintain my weight and figure and I try to not let my blood sugar get out of control despite my impulse issues with Rolos — my current obsession.

Is it even possible to eat less than four at a time?!

It can be difficult to admit our flaws, but it’s important for personal growth to do so. It’s important to always be evaluating our good and bad personality traits so that we can always be striving to better ourselves to get the most out of this life.

All the zodiac signs are a little different, but here are the best and worst personality traits of the Aries zodiac sign. Plus, check out the end of this article to find out the “perfect love match” for the Aries zodiac sign, ranked from best to worst astrological qualities


1. Aries are determined in everything they do.  

One quote that would resonate with all Aries is, “Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure, and loss act as motivation.”

Whether it’s work, an exercise routine or kicking a bad habit; an Aries is always determined to do better and to be better.

Sure, they may struggle with a personal vice from time to time, but they are always quick to correct the behavior and be the best that they can be. An Aries is unlikely to give up on anything, no matter how long it takes.

2. Aries are honest, almost constantly, even if it can be a bit brutal at times.

Lauryn Hill, who is a Gemini Sun and a Sagittarius Moon, (part of the Aries tribe) said it best, “Be honest, brutally honest. That’s what is going to maintain relationships.” An Aries girl believes that. An Aries sees no point in sugar coated nonsense, they see the world the way it is and generally refuse to report it any other way.

Sure, the tendency to report all information so honestly can get slightly brutal and emotionally draining (for both parties involved), but with an Aries, you’ll always know where you stand and that they’ll never lie to you.

3. Aries knows how to be confident without being arrogant.

Just follow an Aries in situations where the competition is fierce. Her attitude exudes the mindset of, “There is no competition because nobody can be me.”

Ever get tired of people that are constantly self-deprecating in hopes of getting you to compliment them? Well, you’re unlikely to have this problem with an Aries as they tend to be too confident to ever pull this type of melodrama on those close to them.

An Aries tends to find a great balance when it comes to confidence. They don’t necessarily need your approval (even though it can be appreciated), but they also tend to not come across as arrogant.

4. Aries tend to be happy and optimistic (even in bad situations).

 

“I love it when the coffee kicks in and I realize what an adorable bada** I’m going to be today.”

The confidence that radiates from an Aries is so imbedded that they find it difficult to be unhappy about anything. Optimism and a general state of happiness tend to be the go-to attitude for an Aries.


5. Aries feel Intensely and are passionate. Period.

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

Whether it’s their career path, a new hobby or an important relationship; Aries are intensely passionate about the things that matter most to them. This intensity makes them ideal candidates for promotions at work and makes them great at long term relationships.

6. Aries are brave in all aspects of life.

“It’s okay to be scared. Being scared means you’re about to do something really, really brave.”

When it comes to facing fears, and taking on new challenges; the Aries is extremely capable. They take on life’s challenges without wavering and enjoy the thrilling things in life. The Aries is the most likely to take on new extreme sports and physical challenges, and to enjoy horror movies.

7. Aries are easily angered by seemingly small things.

Aries is the first zodiac sign in astrology. Self starter, youthful and ambitious, “hot headed” tends to be a bit of an understatement when it comes to Aries.

They tend to go from calm, cool and collected to fuming within minutes. Tread lightly with hot button issues when having casual conversations with an Aries.

8. Aries have an aggressive nature.

What do you expect from a Sun sign ruled by Mars, the planet of war? The honest nature of the Aries can be paired with the tendency to be aggressive in unfortunate ways.

They tend to tell you exactly how they feel without holding back or using any verbal filters. When arguing with an Aries, be ready to hear some brutal truths about yourself (and, if you’re sensitive, to most likely get your feeling hurt).

9. Aries are often impulsive eaters and spenders.

Whether it’s a rash decision regarding purchases or diet (they tend to be the impulse shoppers and stress eaters) or saying something regrettable during an argument, an Aries tends to be a bit rash at times (often, inappropriate times).

10. Aries can be overly competitive (most likely to”talk trash”).

The Aries needs to always be first in everything (both socially and at work), which can get old fast. This tends to make them a bit annoying in any competitive setting.

The Aries Perfect Love Match

A "perfect love match" for the Aries will be someone who is hardworking and decisive but allows the Aries to be in control (for the most part). Someone who goes with the flow, is always on time and isn’t threatened by the Aries success.

The perfect match for the Aries won’t be too sensitive to criticism (as the Aries will be the first to be brutally honest about their flaws) and will generally be OK with coming in second place.

Most likely zodiac love matches: Gemini or another Aries

Personally, I’ve been with a fellow Aries for nine and a half years and I still think he’s my perfect “love match”. Meant to be, I guess (insert cheesy grin here).

An Aries being with another Aries can become a bit complicated as their competitive and hot-headed nature can make them argue quite a bit. But the Aries determination and need to be the best they can be make them enjoy the challenge of being with someone as strong and determined as they are (it ends up becoming a much needed challenge in their lives).
