Â The Western astrological sign of Aries is occupied by the Sun from March 21 to April 19 in the tropical zodiac.
The March equinox (spring in the Northern hemisphere), is the start of the new zodiacal year and Aries, the first sign, is associated with fresh vigour and unruly beginnings.
Aries is associated with the classical element Fire, and thus called a fire sign (along with Sagittarius and Leo). It is the domicile of Mars and the exaltation of the Sun. It is also one of the four Cardinal signs (along with Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer). Its polar opposite is Libra. Each astrological sign is assigned a part of the body, viewed as the seat of its power. Aries rules the head and face. The symbol for Aries is the ram. Aries are the pioneers and leaders of the Zodiac.
