This is the symbol for Aries, and it represents a few different aspects about the sign. Primarily, the symbol represents the image of the ram, Aries’ ruling animal. Ram horns are easily identified in Aries’ astrological icon. This symbol is also reminiscent of fallopian tubes, which are essential lady-parts for reproduction. The likeness is neither coincidence nor far-fetched. Aries are extremely creative. Their imaginations are often hugely fertile with new ideas. These sun signs tend to birth new life in the form of adventure, creativity, travel, jobs, and new experiences. As zodiac symbols go, the link between the Aries glyph and a symbol of fertility is a smart match-up.
Another visual parallel is of a lunar nature. The two arches of Aries’ symbol can represent the phases of the moon - two half moons, to be specific. These moon phases are bound together by the plunging straight line between them. This represents a few interesting Aries traits. The polar half moons suggest an inherent dual nature, while the straight line indicates a strong will to unify duplicity. Moons travel fast in their cycles - this suggests Aries as a changeable personality... but that broad line between moon phases hints at a need to have a solid direction, a structured foundation, or a strong standpoint in the midst of change. Pretty neat, eh?
Aries Zodiac Symbol
Elemental Zodiac Symbol for Aries
Fire: What better element to represent this sign of passion than fire!? Like the element itself, the Aries sun-sign personality can be highly combustible. Meaning, beneath that seemingly serene appearance, Aries can burst into a ball of fire the instant they meet with something that kindles their passion. Fire in the personality represents inspiration, enthusiasm and desire.
Aries just needs a bit of fuel, and they can spark into amazing creative endeavors. It’s important to note that fire (and fire signs) can’t start a flame all by their lonesome. Nope. Fire needs partners to bring on the heat... like oxygen and fuel to burn. Same goes with Aries. These signs are most potent when they can partner up with like-minds and agreeable environments. When they have all the right ingredients...watch out! These fire-starters can ignite in glorious ways.
Flowers as Zodiac Symbols for Aries
Honeysuckle: The Aries Flower, just like the Aries birthstone has some significance. It signifies the flower that brings good luck to people belonging to Aries zodiac sign. The Aries Flower is Honeysuckle. Just like Aries birthstone, having Honeysuckle around will tend to have a positive impact on the life of Aries people. Having it in the house will instill a sense of happiness in the house and help in accumulating positive energy in the house. Honeysuckle will improve their family life too. Also smelling Honeysuckle will improve the overall mood of Aries people and help them to remain positive in life. Just as Aries birthstone is beneficial, using this flower in adverse medical conditions, in times of sickness will help in improving health at a faster pace.
Stones as Zodiac Symbols for Aries
Diamond: The birthstone for Aries is the Diamond. The Zodiac sign of Aries also responds to Bloodstone, Topaz Sapphire, Jasper, and Aquamarine. The tradition of giving gifts of jewelry containing these stones dates back thousands of years. The gemstone, or birthstone Diamond is believed to conduct the energies of the planet Mars with which it is sympathetic and that wearing jewelry containing the gemstone will focus the energies of the planet and sign through the gem.
Animal Zodiac Symbols for Aries
Sheep, but especially the Ram: Sheep and rams in general have a long-standing symbolic history of service and provision. Very often, it’s the same with Aries. Ask an Aries for advice or help on a project they can get their horns into, and they’ll (usually) enthusiastically agree. At their core, Aries genuinely enjoy helping. Being of service renders a sense of acceptance - if an Aries thinks they’re making a difference - they’re golden.
There’s some symbolic duplicity with Aries’ animal symbols. On the one hand, sheep are content to follow the heard. On the other, rams can be incredibly strong-willed, refusing to conform with the norm. We see these dualities in Aries too. Most Aries crave (and thrive) to be leaders, juggernauts and pioneers. Yet, many of these sun-signs get into positions of leadership in order to feel safe and gain a sense of belonging (qualities the sheep appreciates).
