Aries: March 21 - April 19
Aries Likes and Dislikes
By Brian Palenske
Aries likes and dislikes are born under the sign of the aggressive planet Mars. Aries is always ready to take on a
challenge; people and situations seldom excite them unless there is something about them that cause the Aries to feel like
they are "winning" their attention.
Some of the top likes and dislikes for the Aries zodiac sign:
A Challenge - If another decides that they want an Aries to be dependent on them, or that they want to
be dependent on the Aries, they're likely to start looking for the nearest fence, because they automatically assume
that the grass is greener on the other side.
The Freedom to Roam and Explore - The Moveable nature of Aries causes people born under the sign to stay
on the move: to be at the vanguard: to be the first to do something new.
The Big Picture - Because from the vantage point of the Sun, one could metaphorically "see"
everything going on in the Solar System, Aries loves the big picture and rarely bothers with the details, because there
are so many people who actually enjoy "wasting" time with them.
Taking Action - Thanks to the forward thrust of the planet Mars, Aries is an action person, not one to
deal with odds and statistics. When a problem comes up, all the Aries wants to know is what to do about it. The Aries
focuses on the most direct course of action, and lets others "sweat the small stuff"; others are usually glad
to let them do so.
Being First - Being born under the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries feels like they should be the first
to do everything.
Having a "Boss" - The thing that Aries dislikes more than anything else is being subservient
or obligated to another. If you know an Aries who is unemployed, it's because they don't want a boss - they
don't mind having a job at all!
Waiting - This may be because of the nature of Aries as a fire sign; it, like a forest fire, does
whatever it can to keep from being confined. Saturn is the planet of patience, and doesn't feel comfortable in Aries;
Mars is the planet of action and is the "ruling" planet of the Ram. This speaks for itself, in that some of the
worst things you can say to an Aries are "not now" or "just a minute."
Being Disappointed - The fact that the Sun enjoys itself in Aries is the reason why Aries people dislike
being disappointed and ignored.
Being Ignored - Aries feels happiest when giving their all, and when they have the opportunity to do so,
they will without question, and they expect others to as well. Because they feel like they have the power to disperse the
dark clouds in the lives of others, they find it unbelievable when someone doesn't want the ray of sunshine they are
offering at the moment.
Having to Sit and Talk Things Out - Venus is the great compromiser and peacemaker among the planets, and
for Aries, being first and winning is a more powerful motivation. Sitting down and talking things out takes time and
energy away from action: peace is not always an option to Aries.
