Aries is considered the first sign of the Zodiac. In analogy with this annual rebirth of the Sun, Aries symbolizes a new beginning, the birth of a being and of new and fiery energy that asserts its presence in this world. Aries differs from the other signs by its impetus, by its drive to go ever more forward, by its vehement activity.
The Aries personality is distinguished because it likes to take the initiative, it is the pioneer who defiantly sets out on an adventure regardless of the risks. Aries tries to avoid all kinds of tasks that may seem boring. Those born under this sign need to prove themselves constantly and always want to be the first in everything. They are initiators by nature, they have a great creative energy that is not satisfied with just intellectualizing their ideas, but feel the need to act on them and carry them out. They are impatient to the point of losing the practical sense of things and wanting to act rather than think, which is why they are known for their impulsiveness and restlessness. They are not interested in the approval of others as long as they let them do it and nothing is demanded of them.
The Aries karmic challenge is to lead without oppressing and to be self-aware and self-absorbed.
The Aries Tarot Arcanum is The Emperor
The Emperor is associated with the number IV, synonymous with stability, order, structure, and practicality.

In a reading it usually represents self-confident characters, with power or authority, the father or the boss.
