Aries, the ram, is an astrological sign that originated from the constellation Aries, and is the first sign of the zodiac. Aries is considered a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign; its Element is Fire and its Quality is Cardinal. Traditionally in astrology Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. The opposite sign to Aries is Libra. Under the tropical zodiac, Aries is occupied by the Sun roughly from March 21 to April 19, by definition beginning at vernal equinox. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently roughly from April 19 to May 19. Aries is associated with the astrological 1st house. The corresponding month in the Babylonian calendar is Arax Nisânu, dedicated to Anu and Bel.
In mythology Aries is often associated with the Greek myth of the ram which carried Athamas's son Phrixus and daughter Helle to Colchis to escape their stepmother Ino, as well as the mythological figure of Theseus, from the Greek myth of the Minotaur.
The astrological symbol for Aries is said to represent the head and horns of the ram, and originates from the cluster of stars which constitute the head of the Aries (constellation), according to the work of Doctor Acacandam dating from 1592. The head of Aries is given the name of Aluathay or Salhay, and it consists of four stars.
The following traits are widely associated with this sign: self-confidence; courage; impatience; impulsivity; enthusiasm; initiative; leadership; opinionated; forceful; irritable; straightforward.
