Aries

[Mesha ( Aries ) Rashi looks like a lamb and is located at the head of Kalapurasha (Ursha major). It moves over pastoral lands and mountains. It lives in hidden places, fire, and the mines of metals and gems.] 

Being the first sign of the Rashichakra, Mesha ( Aries ) represents the raw energy of life itself, which is the first step in being part of the universe. 

Mesha Jatakas ( people born under aries ) are doers. Impulsive, spontaneous and headstrong, often self-centered, Mesha ( Aries ) is always, fearless and brave almost to a point of foolishness, but he never carries malice. Born leaders, Mesha ( Aries ) make their actions and presence felt. They want what they want and when they want life on their terms and don not compromise on it. 

When a Mesha ( Aries ) sets out to accomplish something, he will literally `ram? his way to success. Mesha ( Aries ) individuals react in a physical way to everything. Their impulsiveness is seen when they dash off to achieve before they take time to reason things out intellectually. They harbour emotional and passionate nature. This trait inspires and flatters others, but it is their impatience and rash behaviour, which put one off. However their frustration and anger are also quickly forgotten. Often their unbridled enthusiasm backfires and they lose interest just as quickly as they gained it. 

Active, fiery, high-spirited, energetic, athletic, charismatic, courageous, optimistic, and friendly, Aries are lively participants in the everyday bustle of life. Often where others tread softly, it is usually the energetic Mesha ( Aries ) who is willing to start difficult projects. However, it is also the Mesha ( Aries ) who often fails to finish things when details demand too much of attention or they simply lose interest. They have a tendency to allow their enthusiasm to exceed their actual ability. Before taking something apart, they don't stop to wonder if they can put it back together. In spite of the physical energy associated with Mesha ( Aries ), they are not above using the inability of others to keep up with them as an excuse for their own idleness. If they expect others to provide them with constant stimulation and are unwilling to find their own diversions, they become lazy. 

Mesha Jatakas ( people born under aries ) never shy away from testing new grounds. Their approach may be construed at times as arrogant and domineering; it does take a lot of focus to be a leader. Incurably romantics at heart, they will profess undying love for their beloved - a promise they are most likely to keep. Ideal life partners are most likely to be other Mesha ( Aries ), Simha ( Leo ), Dhanu ( Aquarius ), or Vrishchika ( Scorpio ). They do make caring partners, although at times you might expect too much from your spouse, this will be more so in the case of men than the Mesha ( Aries ) women who will settle down to their partners' habits more easily, and as for the Mesha ( Aries ) men ? they don't like waiting for things.
