If you look up the horoscope section of a newspaper, it says that those born under Aries are fearless, sanguine, dominant, fast-paced. Risk excites them. They are keen to explore unknown territories. This Sun sign loves to go first.
This is true to a certain extent-the Sun in Aries astrological placement reflects an essential part of your personality. But as always in astrology, you need to look at the chart as a whole. For example, people born during a Saturn in Aries transit are more likely to be calm and less likely to be loud than your textbook Aries. People whose Sun is conjunct some other planet are not what you expect the typical Sun in Aries to be. Other aspects to your Sun can be just as influential, e.g. a square from Uranus indicates that you are more impatient and hungry for adventures than your average Sun in Aries personality.
That said, your Sun is still in Aries and this sign is important in your chart. In some cases, it takes more time for the Sun’s qualities to truly come out. It can also happen that you perceive this energy to be in conflict with other placements, e.g. water sign or Virgo planets.
Your Sun falls in Aries if you were born between the 21st of March and 20th
April. Aries season marks the beginning of spring and a new cycle of life.
