Aries babies are impatient and demanding. They
know what they want – and they know what they don’t
want; and they are not averse to making their feelings heard.
As toddlers, they tend to walk and talk sooner
than other children; and topple over sooner, too. They are
prone to bumps, bruises and burns – particularly to
the head and face. Anything that is forbidden or out of bounds
is an irresistible challenge to an Aries child.
Aries children are, normally, openly affectionate.
They love hugs and cuddles and can give as good as they get.
They don’t take kindly to discipline and are prone to
temper tantrums when they fail to get their own way; but these
sudden outbursts usually clear as quickly as they begin. They
love fairy tales and identify strongly with the dashing heroes
and beautiful princesses.
They have little patience with schoool work,
unless it happens to involve one of their personal obsessions.
However, their competitive nature means that they are unlikely
to remain at the bottom of any class for long. But whilethey
respond glowingly to praise, they refuse totally to cooperate
if they feel that they are unappreciated or have been wrongly
As teenagers, they are the original
rebels with, to their minds, very good cause. They argue
the toss with their parents, teachers, friends and foes.
They are the ringleaders of any every adventure, the
leaders of any gang. Issuing orders to Aries youngsters
is as much a waste of time as expecting them to come
second in a race. If you want something done, ask them
nicely – and smile.
