Aries (March 21 – April 19)
They call you a ram and that may be all well and good, but you Aries types, you know you’re just big ol’ wildcats. You’re smart, cunning, lazy, and, on occasion, you love to knock stuff off a table. When you walk into a room, people become aware of you, mainly because you stalk around like a panther.
Aries (♈︎) /ˈɛəriːz/ (Latin for “ram”) is the first astrological sign in the zodiac, spanning the first 30 degrees of celestial longitude (0°≤ λ <30°), and originates from the constellation of the same name. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this sign from approximately March 20 to April 21 each year. This time duration is exactly the first month of the Solar Hijri calendar (Arabic Hamal/Persian Farvardin/Wray).
According to the tropical system of astrology, the Sun enters the sign of Aries when it reaches the March equinox, which occurs on average on March 21 (by design). Because the Earth takes approximately 365.24 days to go around the Sun, the precise time of the equinox is not the same each year, and generally will occur about six hours later from one year to the next until reset by a leap year. February 29 of a leap year causes that year’s vernal equinox to fall about eighteen hours earlier—according to the calendar—compared with the previous year. From 1800 to 2050 inclusive the vernal equinox date has (or will) range(d) from March 19 at 22:34 UT1 in 2048 to March 21 at 19:15 UT1 in 1903.
Under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently[when?] transits Aries from April 15 to 14 May (approximately).

Aries Cultural significance
Aries, the Ram, is the first of the twelve Zodiac constellations. In Greek mythology, it represents the animal whose fleece was sought by Jason and the Argonauts. The Jason’ s main quest was to find the golden fleece of the ram in order to prove himself to be the rightful king of Iolcos in Thessalay.
Originally, the ram had been presented to Nephele by Mercury when her husband took a new wife, Ino, who persecuted Nephele’s children. To keep them safe, Nephele sent Phrixus and Helle away on the back of the magical ram, who flew away to the east. Helle fell off into the Hellespont (now the Dardanelles) between the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara; Phrixus safely made it to Colchis on the eastern shore of the Black Sea.
Ancient Mediterranean civilizations have since immortalized Aries, and the golden fleece in essence, among one of the creatures inhabiting the night sky.
Phrixus sacrificed the ram and presented the Golden Fleece to the king, Aeetes. After that, the Golden Fleece was the treasure wrested from a dragon. There it remained until taken by Jason and the Argonauts after Medea had drugged the dragon. Jason and Medea then fled carrying the fleece on Jason’s ship, the Argo. After Argo’s return, this prize was spread on the bridal couch of Jason and Medea, thus sanctifying their royal union.
Aries is one of the constellations of the zodiac. It is located in the Northern celestial hemisphere between Pisces to the west and Taurus to the east. The name Aries is Latin for ram, and its symbol is. (Unicode ♈), representing a ram’s horns.
