Gather ‘round, because it’s time to talk about the first sign of the zodiac: Aries. Born from approximately March 21 to April 19 (with some variation depending on the year), these bold Rams are known for being assertive, energetic, and intense.

As fire signs, Aries are spontaneous, passionate, outspoken, direct, and just a little hotheaded. As cardinal signs, they like to take charge. Ruled by Mars, they’re competitive, adventurous, and they might have just a bit of a temper. They’ve been called both the “leader” and the “baby” of the zodiac. They sometimes speak before they think, or let their tempers get the better of them—but they’re quick to apologize and move on (unlike grudge-holding Scorpio).

Does this description match a friend, crush, or family member? How about a celebrity? Aries celebs include Kourtney Kardashian, Mariah Carey, and Chance the Rapper–read on to learn more about their Aries traits.
