All signs have good and bad traits that we all have expressed at one point in our lives. The difference is maturity.

Unevolved signs will behave childishly and express the negative and stereotypical characteristics of a particular sign. Meanwhile, the evolved person will demonstrate the positive traits of the sign amplifying the potential for greatness that we all have.

Different traits of evolved and unevolved zodiac signs

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Unevolved Aries: Aggressive, selfish, arrogant

Evolved Aries: Ambitious, methodical, confident

The unevolved Aries will be in their own world. Ruled by Mars, Aries is a temperamental sign; reckless and inconsiderate. Time will eventually force them to understand the world around them.

Evolved Aries will be more disciplined, methodical and determined, similar to Capricorn. When they learn to be more humble and caring, they will be motivated to help the underdog. Helping others will help them to be more selfless. An evolved Aries is driven to make positive changes and to help inspire others.
