Aries is ruled by Mars

The God of war, Mars represents the desire to move forward, improve and change. A primal and powerful force which demands change and progress. Conceptually Mars represents ambition, passion, drive, initiation, impulse, assertiveness and the courage needed to start something.

Aries is associated with the 1st house

The first house symbolizes how others see us. A combination of our physical body, style, image, behavior, mannerisms, grooming habits. Conceptually the first house also represents the beginning of an activity, first impressions, what we bring to a situation, early childhood.
