  1. I was born early morning on April 5th, 1949 and I have always known I am a ‘True’ Aries. Everything good and bad is right on with me. I believe I also have Aries rising so how could I be any different? It’s a bit exhausting sometimes because we push ourselves so much but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Well, it would be nice once in awhile to learn how to relax for a bit before charging off again but at 66 yrs of age, it’s doubtful I will change and that’s fine by me. 🙂

    • Hi Carol! I also share the same birthday and I’m a true Aries! I love being the way I am and if someone doesn’t like me, it’s their loss! I’m a very strong person and have learned to tell people what I want or need and if they can’t handle that, I’m done! Took me awhile but at 56 yrs of age, I’ve learned what I like and don’t like, and I’m not gonna settle for anything less! Hope you have an awesome life and Aries on!

  2. Aries are real fragile at heart specially when they can’t get when they want but they never leave hope and move forward cause they know how to wear strength and confidence .meanwhile they don’t get relaxed whatever they do to satisfy their needs of heart for a particular thing. #17thApril1998

  3. All of the personality traits are true and correct about me. I was born March 26th. I have always been head strong. I have a ruling/dominant personality but I also have a gentle heart. Good luck getting to the gentle heart, it aint easy, lol. As I get older, I am learning how to truly relax and let some things go. Not all, but some things. I’m learning that peace of mind is a rare commodity, and I am slowing learning to let go and let God.

  4. I was born at 9:16 am March 24th, 1969 and i am the exact Aries POSTER CHILD, but wouldnt have it any other way either! I had never met anyone who was born on March 24th until one day at my bartending job on March 24th i came to work to see the day shift bartender and some patrons celebrating the bartenders birthday and i said its my birthday too! I had to show them my ID and everyone got a laugh! Then later on that night two other people came in to claim their free birthday drinks, and they werent together. Happy Aries to all of you!

  5. I was born early in the morning of April 10 everything sound just perfect but I think it is missing something it is almost like stubborn but it is rude and who ever I love or am close to I would take a bullet for them and who ever hurts or makes them sad I will hurt or make sad so yeah
