All About Aries Traits
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. So the Aries traits in the general section (of each Aries decan) will speak for the Aries rising meaning as there is no planetary filter. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences of the general section will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others.
Aries Traits by Rising Decan *
Aries Decan 1 from 0º to 10º Aries. These folk boldly go forth in love relationships. The ascendant is a Martian type energy anyhow so these people will be in your face and upfront and personal pretty quickly if they take a shine to you.
The ascendant is the physical body so (if other attractive aspects in the chart support it) these natives could also be described as “hot” in the colloquial sense. Relationships can be tempestuous with many ups and downs and passionate arguments. These folk will bravely defend their partner against all odds, but will equally slap them back into shape if they misbehave.
Aries Decan 2 from 10º to 20º Aries. Their jailbreaking & simmering queen behaviour is most notable in love. It will be very hard to get these folk to commit and the very phrase ‘tie the knot’ is enough to break them into a bad case of hives. ‘Simmering’ is another great talent. They can simmer with sexuality or equally simmer with rage if they are rebuffed by the object of their desire.
These folk do best in relationships where they are the boss and their partner gives them plenty of freedom. Otherwise, they are better off single or serial monogamists. Two monsters here and the chemical furnace or Fornax could mean that there is the tendency for these folk to project their inner rage onto others and they may come across as passive-aggressive.
Aries Decan 3 from 20º to 30º Aries. These folk find it hard to have a “normal”, traditional relationship because they start snoring once they get past the drama and roller coaster feelings of the grand passion they experienced at the start of a relationship. The Jupiter nymph-chasing is very marked with this aspect. These folk enjoy the thrill of seduction and the chase so much, that when the flames die down, the relationship can seem far too pedestrian and they seek to spice things up.
It can be hard to get these folk to commit as they fear to be held under the lock and key of Andromeda’s chains. When things go wrong with their partner Aries decan 3 will turn up at their long-suffering friends doorstep, panda-eyed, with arm draped theatrically across their brow and holding a half drunk bottle of vodka. ‘It’s divorce!!!’ they declare (Again….).
