General traits of Aries Ascendant in Kaal Purush

To start with, Aries is a fiery cardinal sign, which makes Aries Ascendant natives extremely energetic and straightforward. They never like to walk around the bush – they will smash through it instead. Apply this characteristic to every action they make – they talk in a stingy, straightforward manner, cannot stand much opposition and when they decide to act they go for it without considering. According to this, Aries is the one who usually acts first and thinks later which is good on the one hand as they trust their instincts and repel fear efficiently but on the other hand, if Mars is afflicted, it can lead to disastrous actions.

Mars, the planetary ruler of Aries, is the lord of 1st and 8th houses which both mark their longevity and stamina. In a perfect condition, they are extremely strong and energetic but not necessarily aggressive. They are very honest in their nature and expect this in return, otherwise, they become very aggressive.

As the first sign of Kaal Purush/zodiac, Aries is the natural ruler and automatically tend to take lead in every area of life. Their biggest desire in the spotlight is to dominate and win which can bring them a lot of opposition and hidden enemies. The more enemies Aries dominant have, the bigger the compliment – opposition and competition in their life is just a normal thing and they should never fear that no more.

Mars is a small, dense and fast-moving planet and this makes Aries walk fast and act at the speed of light. They constantly add power and speed to everything they do, be it walking, bike riding, eating or deciding in general. This trait makes them great decision-makers in the spotlight but hey are not good at in staying one place for long – even in the classroom, their attention span gets weakened because of staying in one place for a long time.

In addition to that, they tend to start multiple things at the same time period which makes them great initiators and leaders but they have a hard time finishing all the things they launched – that is why they need a large army to lead. If they refuse to teamwork, they get exhausted quickly with their plans. They are impatient and wish to complete each task quickly in order to make room for new tasks.

As a competitive sign, they are the ones who like to manage things their own way, which makes them having issues with authority. On the positive light, Aries is very independent, innovative from the early ages and even then they can not stand opposing viewpoints.

Mentality – To serve and protect, seek and destroy

As discussed in general traits, their mentality is to act fast, straightforward and to compete and win. They are quick decision-makers and obstacles are no big problem for them – just another good thing to climb over. He won’t accept dictation of someone else, especially when done with pride and disrespect. An Aspect of Saturn and Jupiter can cool down their anger to some extent and make them more stable.

Physical appearance – Short to medium, stiff, bulky and strong

Aries ascendant, when having Mars as a dominant planet in the chart, will have a strong and wide body with short to medium height. Knees can be their weak or painful spot.


The opposing sign of Aries is Libra, which indicates their pinnacle – to obtain balance in their quick actions. This lesson would most likely bestow them a Libra dominant partner.

In case of heavy affliction, they can be self-destructive with their deep thoughts.


This planet is important for Aries as it rules courage and enemies – they are 3rd and 6th houses. Mercury can bestow Aries a great intellect to confront enemies with courage, if well placed. As Mercury is a ruler of two malefic houses, they have a critical character which involves in many conflicts. Usually thinking too much is not for Aries and Mercury here proves it. Besides this, both houses are Upachay houses, which increase their significance over time and Mercury bestows them many skills at one time.

The best partner for Aries could be a Libra dominant, who can also help Aries to balance their actions. Venus is the natural planet of luxury, pleasure, and comfort and for Aries Ascendant, this means double doses. Marriage is the source of stability to the Aries, both mental and material.


Saturn is the lord of 10th and 11th houses, which indicate their capacity to obtain status and success. It also gives a clue about their Karma, actions and, intentions. Strong Saturn can bless Aries with extreme success and social status which help them climb to the top of their desired mountain. This also indicates their independent mind which refuses to take rude orders from others – this can bring them to clash with authorities. If Jupiter in good dignity, they won’t attack good leaders, but fight against and win over bad and corrupt authority figures. They will then learn from their idols and friends in authority. If Saturn is heavily afflicted, it is the cause of pain, delay and separation to Aries Ascendant as with weak Saturn they try to obtain their desires with immoral acts which Saturn does not like at all.
Saturn can give them this ambition and achievement only when controlled and disciplined.
