The first sign of the zodiac is a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars.
The first day of each of the 4 cardinal signs is the beginning of each
season, and so Aries begins spring and is the first day of the zodiac
year, the real New Year's Day, (not some pagan Roman holiday like January
1st). This aggressive initiator has all the arrogance of a first-born
sibling, often jumping head first into situations creating difficulties
that could have been avoided with a more cautious approach. But of course
that isn't the Aries concern. Beginnings are far more important than completions
and the Ram often leaves unfinished business in his or her life only to
find the need for closure years later. Since Aries is the first sign it
rules all first house issues. These include the projection of the personality,
the looks and presentation, the ego and the physical body in general.
