Astrology Quotes: Aries In Their Own Words Redux

Aries is a fire sign, known for being aggressive, brash and confident. Mars ruled, Aries are go-getters, natural warriors, yang. They are concerned with the self – “me” as opposed to “we”.

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Leonardo da Vinci



SarahI don’t judge others. I say if you feel good with what you’re doing, let your freak flag fly.
Sarah Jessica Parker



I’ve always had confidence. It came because I have lots of initiative. I wanted to make something of myself.
Eddie Murphy





I’m an intense bastard when I’m doing my job. I don’t suffer fools and I don’t wanna fuck around. I want you to be ready and prepared. Let’s go, man. If you come to that set and you don’t know your lines, what the fuck have you been doing? You don’t deserve the job.
Russell Crowe


In this world, I call the shots and I think I know best.
Mariah Carey

Astrology Quotes: Aries In Their Own Words Redux — 31 Comments

  1. Hmm Aries. I am drawn in by Aries which squares my Cancer stellium but I have Chiron and Ceres in Aries in the 8th. Will Aries energy heal me?

    Wow Mars in Aries vs Mars in Cancer…can’t figure out if i like it or not…

  2. Stephanie!

    I would love to hear abt yr Cancer fetish!

    As for my Aries thing… I wasnt much familiar with their energy… But now have two Aries in my life, both men. One of them actually is Cancer with Aries Moon and Mars. The other has Sun Venus and then moon in Aries.

    I like how they move forward, compared to my cancerian sidewaysness… They just GO. I guess i dont have any deep thoughts about it yet… Just that i like it even though tension does arise….their firey fire warms up my watery/earthy/yinny chart-

    I will no doubt comment on this again soon..

  3. I am drawn to Aries and repelled by them at the same time. My Aries Venus/Mars/South Node loves them…My Libra North Node/Pluto and Capricorn Moon gets irritated by them.

    I love the fire (I do have a lot of fire in my chart)
    I love how they don’t hold grudges (just petulance)
    I don’t love how they can forget shit so easily!

    Where were we supposed to meet?
    You said 3 o’clock? I thought you said Saturday…oops!
    Oh, you don’t eat black beans?
    We were going to talk about things? Really? What things?

    xoxoxo To the spring chicken of the Zodiac: your zest is muchly appreciated!

    • I’m an Aries sun and I remember everything. I was just on the phone with my mom telling her the exact date that the boy I liked when I was 10 (in 1972) returned home after six months he spent living with the other side of his family out of state. Lol. There are a lot of non Aries-like things about me though. I think it’s my Capricorn rising and my Venus and Mercury in Taurus.

      • Elisandra, I have Aries Sun, Cap Rising, and Taurus Venus, too, with Merc in Aries. And I remember absurdly obscure things like that too!
        Yup, I think Cap ASC (and my Virgo Moon) smother the fire a bit, but it’s still there waiting to be fanned into a roaring blaze!

  4. The aries only comes out after I’ve known someone awhile… or when I’m writing 😉
    I guess that’s one of the tricky things about the sun. Well, and I guess having it in the eighth affects my openness with it, too.

    As far as the aries/cancer contrasts go, based upon my experience with my closest sib, a cancer, aries seems more concerned with action than security. I tend to find more security in getting up and getting going than in holing up in the bomb shelter (I’d go to him if I needed that, for sure.) We did everything together as kids, but the differences between how we operate… wow!

    If I have a problem I go a bit nutz if I can’t _do something_ about it even if it’s simply letting go or moving on (pisces mars.)

  5. But I’ve never felt all that confident or extroverted or talkative or athletic or… all these things an aries is supposed to be.

  6. Hi Moonpluto!

    As for the Aries-Cancer thing, I’ve always thought I was into the crabs b/c I have a Cappy moon and a lot of Saturn energy in my chart, despite the Aries Stellium. Crabs make me feel secure, like I can just go cuddle up with them after a day of fighting off the world. But there’s definitely a tension there too, and it’s kinda hot. Not boring, like every astrologer seems to think they’d make me feel.

  7. Stephanie!

    That’s great that Cancerians make you feel secure. My Venus in Leo loves for my Cancer stuff to feel appreciated, even anonymously.

    And Aries make me feel alive! I love the way they go after what they desire… a kind of fearlessness to my watery eyes.

    And I understand yr Capricorn moon. Have a few friends with that placement….duty-bound!

  8. Well, I really like SJP, but Eddie Murphy, Russell Crowe, Mariah Carey, not so much. Da Vinci, I never actually met him (hah), but I do love his quote!

  9. I assume that Aries would be fun, haven’t known one in a while. Aries quotes are definitely making me feel like a dunce and giving me a little get up and go. Well, I did get up and go outside.

  10. EMMA THOMPSON (Such a great lady… And typical Aries.)

    “I don’t have technique because I never learnt any.”

    “Its unfortunate and I really wish I wouldn’t have to say this, but I really like human beings who have suffered. They’re kinder.”

    “I can be calm in a crisis, in the face of death or things that hurt badly. I don’t get hysterical, which may be masochistic of me.”

    “My worst quality is impatience.”

  11. And


    “I think you end up doing the stuff you were supposed to do at the time you were supposed to do it.”

    “I’ve always been a fella who put most of my eggs in one basket and then takes a dump in the basket.”

    “Creating a cultural icon out of someone who goes, ‘I’m stupid, isn’t it cute?’ makes me want to throw daggers. I want to say to them, ‘My grandma did not fight for what she fought for just so you can start telling women it’s fun to be stupid. Saying that to young women, little girls, my daughter? It’s not OK.”

  12. Isn’t Sarah Jessica Parker the mom who banned use of the word “fat” from her house?? Kind of a reverse-judgment, really.

  13. CArRiE, mine reads:
    “meanderings on the internal compass”
    (yes, i have a touch of sag in aspect, too)

    i love the emma thompson quotes. ‘course, i love that lady, in general 😉

    it’s become obvious since i wrote that stuff up there that i’m very aries… i’m just used to it. and have never have felt as confident as a lot of the stuff tells me i should (*waves at saturn*) takes time to grow into my skin, i guess.

  14. An Aries woman throwing a dinner party has every other woman (read:her guests) in the kitchen cleaning and scrubbing for her. Bossy!

  15. Kelly, this Aries woman is such a control freak, I I never allow my guests to clean up. I invited them to show them a good time. Besides, when it comes to cleaning up, only I can do it right. 🙂

    • Aries sun here, only control freak about MY life and my stuff. No interest whatsoever in telling other people what to do. Guests wouldn’t even be in my kitchen.

  16. Go Aries! My favourite sign.
    Anyone whom I’ve ever worshiped had Aries-something; sun, Venus, whatever, close to my Midheaven.

  17. Aries mom here, my motto while raising four children, and the assorted friends who were always at our house – “Have fun, exhaust, and conquer!”

  18. Yep they all seem Aries to me
    My time without an Aries
    Makes me love my world I
    Have a whole different tempo
    Frequency and purpose
    Each to their own
    Us has indescribable beauty for me
