Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and the strongest of all the signs. As an Aries subject you are very true to the symbol of your sign (a ram possessing horns). You always want to be right at the head of whatever you set out to do, for you are the rulers and the pioneers. As you are only really satisfied when things are going as you intend, and want them to be, you often fail as employees. Your ideas are dogmatic to the point of self-righteousness, yet you are, more often than not, proved right in the long run.

Because you possess the ability to see just what lies ahead of you, you know how to plan for what is most likely to happen. It is much better for you to be able to give orders and directions rather than have to take them from others, for whilst you are capable of leading in a strangely accomplished manner, you cannot at all times be relied upon to do the job competently yourself. If ever a sign may be said to indicate the capable ‘jack of all trades’, then this is Aries. You are extremely fond of travel, and usually get around to doing a great deal of this. You like change and never seem to want to stay put in any one situation or place.

Taken all round, you are very head-strong, enthusiastic, and impulsive, sometimes self-willed to the point of annoyance, especially when you feel you are onto a good thing. You are a true friend to anybody whom you like, for you can be extremely gentle. You are outspoken, however, and it is a well-known fault of yours to be at times generous to the point of embarrassment.

If you were born in March you are likely to possess an extremely quick temper which is quite uncontrollable at times. You are very impulsive.

If you were born between April 1st and 10th you are among the clever ones who may appear to give way yet get just what you want all the same. You are affectionate, faithful people.

If you were born between April 11th and 20th you belong to the group which most closely resembles your birth sign, the ram.

You rush into anything without any sign of fear, and if anybody should upset someone to whom you are particularly attached, then heaven help the unfortunate individual who becomes the victim of your lashing tongue. You are the type who wants to give the world to someone at one moment and commit a murder the next. You have, generally, two distinct sides to your character. One side shows a cocksure and over-confident nature but, at the same time, you are sensitive and much inclined to be jealous and dogmatic. The other side is very ambitious and appreciative of even the tiniest thing which may be done to help you, and you have a strongly developed desire to help the weaker people around you.

Constitutionally, you are lucky, for you have a strong resis­tance to infection and disease. Although headaches and sinus conditions can affect you, however, as can strain and overwork. On the whole, you have long lives but nearly always have to take to wearing glasses as the years go by.

The month (or months) most likely to be favourable to you cannot be singled out, for good fortune is quite evenly distributed throughout the year with possibly a slight inclination towards the autumn months.

Marriage partners for you are best selected from the Leo group (July 22nd to August 21st) or from Sagittarius (Novem­ber 22nd to December 20th). You should beware of marrying Cancer types. Should you choose a Leo subject, you can expect your partner to be agreeable yet at the same time very self-control- led. Tact will be needed at times, for there will be moments when it will be difficult to know just what has angered your partner. Leo subjects are apt to take action without warning and allow feelings to overrule caution; they can, however, be extremely sympathetic.

Should you choose a Sagittarius subject, you will find you have a partner who is loyal and who is also very demonstrative and never minds displaying his or her affection. Sagittarius subjects are open, frank people, though sometimes they are a little too outspoken. Once they have made up their minds to do something, nothing will prevent them from doing it - so be careful not to cross them.
