Aries decan 1 is ruled by Mars (Aries triplicity). They are the newborn babies of the zodiac, coming out into the world kicking, screaming and bawling their eyes out. The Sun struts its way through constellation Pegasus, the Sea Monster, the Lizard, the Pendulum clock and the King from roughly March 21 – 30 or more accurately from 0º to 10º Aries. These impulsive souls try everything at once and grab with both hands. They want it all and they want it now. Of course, they do, they are the start of a brand new cycle.
To Boldly Go & Red Ambition
Everything is fresh, new, shiny and bouncy. These people are natural leaders, warriors, front-line fighters and trailblazers. They have to be the first, best, biggest and bling-est. Gone is the water and the empathy of the previous decan, these folk are so sharply focused on their goals they find it very hard to see their peers right next to them.
That is until one should try and overtake them, then it’s “Outta my way!!” Yes, road rage was probably first invented by a flame-headed Aries 1 on a flying horse. “To boldly go” is Aries 1’s motto. Jump first and think later, this is why these subjects gain the reputation of scandals, accidents and rash decisions. Pegasus’s daring ideas and vision become far more physical here in Aries.

Unlike Pisces decan 3, these subjects do not get stuck up in their ivory towers. After they have captured their Pegasus stardust they swing right back down to earth. These people are lusty, red-blooded and fully present in their physical body, which they really cannot wait to “put about”. Aries decan 1′ s sap is rising and eager to start “ramming”, this can be a sexual or competitive butting of horns in the business world.

The tarot card associated with this decan is the two of wands. Karmically this card is about leaving the old for the new, deciding between staying with what you know and leaving for something brand new
“ On the outside, it may appear you have it all and are very successful but changes have been occurring on the inside for some time. You may have a new plan of action or a burning desire to do something else. You may feel that your fires have been burning low and that you are in dire need of a new lease of life, change of scenery or change of faces.” ~ Teachmetarot. The meaning is appropriate in the sense that Aries decan 1 is indeed the start of a brand new cycle and the return of the sun…
Aries Decan 1 Fixed Stars
KERB ~ 1º is in Pegasus’s sexy thigh (If a horse’s thigh can be deemed sexy.), and suggestive of Aries’s famous precocious sex drive. Unfortunately, this stars only interpretation is “Danger of being jilted by a lover”. Presumably, this is something to do with Pegasus’s rider being “jilted” off his back. Rams make intense romantic partners, so they stand less chance of being “jilted” if they back off from their beloveds every once in a while.
Their psychic heat is enough to burn those close to them to a crisp if they stay too close for too long. Robson says the Pegasus constellation, in general, gives “ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment.” Being around these folk can be quite exhausting if you are not a fellow fire sign.

Aries Decan 1 Planets & Angles
Sun Aries 1
Deneb Kaitos 2º ~ “Mental disturbance, some loss keenly felt, accidents such as burns, scalds and cuts” 
Algenib 9º ~ “Mental disturbances, fevers, and ill health, some danger of accidents.”  And “A fighting spirit and a love of learning.” 
If some of the celebrities above have “mental disturbances” they hide it very well. In some cases though, it is obvious (Van Gogh). Other celebrities here specialize in portraying those with mental disturbances, (Tarantino and some of the actors.), some just look mental (Gaga.) and some study those with mental disorders (Reich and Fromm). Aries does rule the head and the stars here are extremely intense so the heat can build up in the brain if it is not expressed creatively.
It seems that the great success of some of these natives is due to successful channeling of this fierce Aries/solar passion that builds within. There are some really great female songbirds here whose voices probably saved them from a life of accidents and trouble-making. Here they have the opportunity of expressing their passion and fire through singing. The challenge of the difficult fixed stars is only evident if the Sun is closely conjunct the star (under 1º) otherwise the Sun is actually in its exaltation in Aries which gives these fearless warriors some protection from those they whiz past on the way to the top.
These folk can indeed “Boldly go forth” without too much trouble. However, if Sun Aries 1 does make the mistake of going too far with the single-minded pursuit of their desires, then the possibility of Pegasus’s fall will catch up with them eventually.
