Aries traits: This fiery sign is the first sign in the zodiac. Aries are leaders, propelling themselves forward on adventures, climbing corporate ladders, and embracing independence. They're an energetic bunch — passionate, courageous, free-spirited, and somewhat turbulent. But for all the positive Aries traits, there's always a darker underbelly. Jealousy, impatience, moodiness, and impulsiveness might be struggles for Aries. If they can keep those things in check, Aries has the ability and energy to lead an exciting, adrenaline-filled, successful life.
