A Historical and Present Day Reference Guide

Includes year 2017 astrological, astronomy, and other relevant calendar events.

Aries is ruled by Mars.

This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Aries by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modification by others.

The 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for ease of Third Millennium reading. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances it is well worth the read.

Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.

There is a short metaphysics experiment at the end.

Aries is a fiery, masculine, movable, equinoctial sign. This sign is ruled by Mars (the God of War). The Sun enters Aries on March 21st and passes into Taurus on April 22nd.

Best Career Paths and Jobs

Aries appears to be the only sign fraught with ambiguities as to best jobs and careers, here's what is stated:

  • Aries succeed best in vocations requiring quick, active temperament. They prefer professions requiring manual dexterity. Analysis is very dependent upon the hour of birth. Certain planet configurations can also negate the generalities indicated by the position of the Sun.

Best Places to Live

Aries succeed best and enjoy life more in big cities and metropolitan areas. They tend to be more prosperous if they live in a corner house.

Gemstones and Birthstones

The ruling gems for Aries are the Ruby and Sardonyx.
