Mars ruled Aries is cardinal fire. Any planet in this sign becomes a bullet—red-hot, impulsive, and ready to go. Aries planets are not known for their patience. In fact, they hare waiting more than anything. There are no obstacles in the mind of an Aries planet. There's only where they are and where they want to be, and the shortest distance between those two points is a straight line. Aries planets prefer cutting to the chase over any other tactic. They boldly charge in where few would dare to go. They are brave, courageous, impetuous, and direct. Your Aries planet will always be exactly what it seems to be. This is the first sign, so Aries planets are often very good at initiating projects or starting things up. They aren't as eager to finish, though. That's more of a fixed quality, so projects often are left undone. Aries planets need a physical outlet for their considerable Mars-powered energy—otherwise their need for action can turn to stress. Exercise, hard work, and competition are excellent outlets for the active energy of Aries and Mars.
