Characteristics of an Aries

I remember when I read one of my first astrological books back in grade school. It mentioned a highly affable person who shook your hand vigorously, making him or herself your new best friend upon introduction. “Congratulations, you’ve just been adopted by an Aries,” the book read, and I thought—yep, that’s my mother.

If you were born between March 21 and April 19, your sun sign is Aries. Friendly, creative, and inventive, Aries makes a great leader. Self-confident and audacious, Aries is not afraid to make new friends, try new things, and really experience life to its fullest. Aries is symbolized by the Ram.

Characteristics of a Pisces

As a Scorpio, I love the fact that my little sister is a Pisces. We are both water signs and are able to get along so well in our emotional, creative worlds better than I know we would if either of us was instead a fire sign.

If you were born between February 20 and March 20, your sun sign is said to be Pisces. Idealistic, sensitive, and compassionate, Pisces are born artists and dreamers. They usually have a strong sense of intuition as well as being selfless and sympathetic. Pisces are the ultimate humanitarians.
