What's your sign?

My birthday just came a little early with the arrival of an early surprise (as in I bought it for myself). Enter my new aries ring from Asha. Nothing like wearing your sign on your sleeve...or in this case your finger.


According to astrology.com this is what it means to be an Aries...
"Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and that's pretty much how those born under this sign see themselves: first. Aries are the leaders of the pack, first in line to get things going. An Aries prefers to initiate rather than to complete. The leadership displayed by Aries is most impressive, so don't be surprised if they can rally the troops against seemingly insurmountable odds. An Aries won't shy away from new ground, either. Those born under this sign are often called the pioneers of the zodiac. Aries is a bundle of energy and dynamism, kind of like a Pied Piper, leading people along with its charm and charisma.
The symbol of Aries is the Ram, and that's both good and bad news. Impulsive Aries might be tempted to ram their ideas down everyone's throats without even bothering to ask if they want to know. You're not likely to convince the Ram to soften up; these folks are blunt and to the point. Along with those qualities comes the sheer force of the Aries nature. Much of Aries' drive to compete and to win comes from its Cardinal Quality.

Aries is ruled by Mars (Mars was the God of War). These folks are bold, aggressive and courageous. They can summon up the inner strength required to take on most anyone, and they'll probably win. Aries do not lack energy or vitality, and they can stay in the game longer than most anyone else. Now that's a winning edge. Rams are also, for the most part, independent and well aware of their own interests in a given situation. This sometimes myopic view may not be for everyone, but it does help Aries get things going. Further, their competitive natures ensure that they will play the game with zeal and vigor. Sadly, Aries won't usually be around for the final victory (defeat? never). These folks will more than likely have bolted to the next project before the first one is done.
The element associated with Aries is Fire. Think action, enthusiasm and a burning desire to play the game. Aries love physicality, so they won't sit on the sidelines for long, if at all. They'll jump into the fray full force and will contribute much in the process. Talk about eager beavers! You'll never find an Aries who regretted taking a shot.

Making things happen is what it's all about. Aries are also unafraid of stepping onto new terrain. The challenge in taking on the unknown is heaven on Earth for Rams. Sure, they may appear arrogant when they take on the world, but they'll be quick to tell you it's the only way to go. While a common Aries refrain might well be 'me first,' there's no point in arguing with them since, in their minds, they are first. Is this unbridled ego? Maybe, but that might be what it takes to blaze a new trail. Oh, and on the subject of arguing, it's the Ram who will have the last word, so save your breath.

Aries plays as hard as they work. In the game of love, the Ram's ardor is unquestioned, although Aries can also be playful and romantic with their mate. With Aries ruling the head, face and brain, those born under this sign need to be on the lookout for headaches and are well-served to take the occasional deep breath. The Ram's color is bright red, a sure sign of the fire that breathes within.
The great strength of the Aries-born is in their initiative, courage and determination. They love to get things going and are fearless along the way. Their dynamism and competitive spirit add considerably to any of their endeavors."

For those who know me this is pretty accurate, if I would say so myself?
