The Astrological Sun Sign
When reading the Aries Personality Profile below, keep in mind
that it is a generalization of the various influences at work during the time The Sun was passing through
that Sign of the Zodiac.
When the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the time of birth, are
known, their influence can be further defined to add greater insight into the positive and negative
effects they can produce.
In order to get this information, we recommend a Natal Chart be developed specifically for an individual. Real accuracy is only obtained by
charting the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the precise month, day, time, city, or
longitude and latitude, an individual was born.
This information provides an enlightening "specific" Personal Profile, which can be
studied, referred to, and acted upon, throughout the individuals life.

The Emperor, Queen of Wands, II-IV of Wands
is the head sign of the Grand Man, or Microcosm. It is a cardinal, masculine, equinoctial, and movable
sign. It is the positive pole of the Fire Triplicity, governing the head and face. Its higher attributes are
intuition and reason.
The Sun enters the
sign each year on or about the 22nd of March, and departs from it on or about the 20th of April. The Sun on
entering the sign should be given six days before coming into full touch and action with the influence of the sign.
A person born between the dates of the 22nd and 28th of March would not receive the full results of the sign's
individuality, as he would be born when The Sun was on the edge of the sign. This is known as "The Cusp." Its nature and impulses partake of the sign The Sun has just passed through and
out from and the native will also partake of the attributes of the sign of the Zodiac in which The Moon is located at the time of birth.
Aries is called the sign of sacrifice. People born under
Aries are usually very executive, earnest, and determined. They accomplish what they resolve to do against all
opposition. They are leaders, and naturally dominate those about them. They are noble, generous, magnetic,
progressive, and have occult power and metaphysical tastes.
They are good scholars, are bright, genial, witty, and great talkers.
They can always lead the conversation into new and interesting paths, and are never at a loss to provide
The genius of this sign is intuition, and silent electro-magnetic power
by means of the hands. They reach their highest attainment through knowledge and the regenerative love-action of
the heart. They love beauty, order, harmony, and elegant surroundings.
They should not be circumscribed when giving out their true work of
genius. If these people are born when The Sun is well centered in Aries, they may attain the rhythmic swing of
their regenerative centers, and there arises an electromagnetic solar fluid which is so powerful that it can be
cast to a great distance. In fact, there is only one other sign so strong in this direction, and that is
It is almost impossible to hide anything from an Aries individual who has
recognized his or her power of intuition. For this reason those born under this sign develop quickly the gifts of
the spirit. They are often excellent psychometrists, mind-readers, and spiritual comforters. They understand
without words the especial trouble that is weighing upon the heart of a friend, and are frequently able to explain
its cause and banish its effects. Their wills are so dominant, their sympathies so quick and kindly, and their
clairvoyant power so marked, that they rarely ever fail in their work of ministering to the sorrowful. Sometimes
their great regard for friends will apparently blind them to their friends' faults, but it is doubtful if
those born under this sign are ever really unaware of such weaknesses. It is a rare exception, however, when they
will admit them to others, although they are not usually reticent in speaking of the failings and eccentricities
of those to whom they feel no necessity of loyalty.
The Aries man will never back out of a fight. Although he will not
foolishly seek one, if compelled he will go in to win, and is always much disappointed if his side is
The Aries woman is not far behind her brother. Her friends, her
favorites, are all in all, and the person who places them at a disadvantage will be dealt with in language that
cannot easily be misconstrued.
The traits of Aries people often seem to contradict each other. They are
not born patient, but with those they love they are sometimes patient to a fault. Theywill give
of their money to those who aretoo lazy to work for themselves, and will accept excuses and explanations with
apparent credulity, although they are seldom deceived.
The executive ability of those born under this sign is so marked that
they can come to grief from an overestimate of it. They may become inflated with success. This may develop a
recklessness which can lead to loss, disaster, and possible nervous prostration.
The tendency of many of the Aries teachers, speakers, and writers is to
give up everything to their work. This zeal can sacrifice health and usefulness, and spoil their beautiful
inspirational powers. Many fine descriptive writers, novelists, and poets are found in this sign, and many
The Aries person is often spare, strong, tall, quick, sharp of
sight, of oval face and swarthy complexion, with large shoulders.
There are really two distinct personalities born under the sign Aries;
those who are short, and those who are tall and broad-shouldered. The former are much under the influence of the
Moon and the planet Mars at the time of birth. They partake somewhat of the characteristics of the signs these
two planets were in. These persons can be quite changeable, quicktempered, aggrgavated
when contradicted, and dislike being told of their faults. If they are not permitted to do their work in their
own way they can become overly anxious and very likely lose all interest in the subject. Their stubbornness is the
result of the intensity of their natures, and more of an appearance than a reality. These persons are usually very
fortunate in business and money-getting.
The Aries people who are tall and broad-shouldered can be more silent,
with a deep spiritual nature, and great occult power if they choose to develop it. They are very generous, and
distinguished for their good works, but are not so fortunate in worldly affairs as those alluded to
