So you know all about Aries, but what about Aries Risings?

ICYDK, unlike your Sun sign, which is determined by your b-day, your Rising sign is determined by the time you were born. To get specific, it’s determined by which zodiac sign was on the eastern horizon when you were born, and it changes every two-ish hours—which is why it’s so important to know your exact birth time. You can be an Aries Sun and Aries Rising, Scorpio Sun and Aries Rising, Aquarius Sun and Aries Rising—you get the idea. Your Rising sign plays a major role in shaping and defining your attitude, appearance, and the first impressions you make.

Simply put, Aries Risings are hot—both hot-headed and hawt AF. Aries is ruled by Mars, so Aries Risings are no stranger to bringing the heat. Aries is a fire sign, after all, and unlike water sign Scorpio (also ruled by Mars), Aries Risings have no problem turning up the temperature. They're capable of putting their weapons down, but only after they feel like they’ve won.

Aries is a cardinal sign, meaning that Aries Risings are all about taking action. They are no strangers to acting up. Don't let their chill disposition confuse you—they bring the energy and the enthusiasm! As the first sign, Aries is the baby of the zodiac, and babies make noise! The best way to respond to a Bratty Rising—sorry, Aries Rising— is knowing when to let them whine or walk away. Emphasis on walking away!

The Aries Rising Mindset

Aries Risings' existence is hallmarked by three things: emergence, creativity, and new beginnings. Aries Risings understand the power of now. Like a knight in shining armor, they have no reservations leaping into the unknown. They recognize that taking risks is how they can level up. Take celebrity influencer Paris Hilton for example—while her Sun in Aquarius sets her off as a socialite queen, it’s her Aries Rising that gives her a fresh approach to the world. You don’t basically create influencer culture without taking a few chances! Aries Rising divas don't always set out intending to play the role of inventor, but they sure don’t shy away from the glow-ups.

Aries Rising at Work

Surprisingly, despite their naturally powerful presence, Aries Risings have an extremely grounding, stable presence in the workplace. Their work ethic and strong critical thinking skills mean they thrive at work. However, when things fall apart, Aries Risings are ready to realign and readjust to get through their responsibilities. While they can work well with a team, Aries Risings tend to do best when they are working solo. Having too many chefs in the kitchen can throw them off track. Their life path sets them up to be a leader! It’s not that they can’t follow—it’s just being a follower might not be the best use of their time. If you're looking for someone who knows how to get things done and keep their mouth shut (at least for all you know), you need an Aries Rising on your team.

And when you have commitment from an Aries Rising, they'll always be loyal.

Aries Rising in Love

An Aries Rising in love will take pleasure in having your face on their phone lock screen, and they'll want to invite you to events where you can pose as a power couple. You shouldn't expect them to jump to orient their lives around you, but with time and patience, they won’t hesitate to show up for you in the ways that you want and need.

Aries Rising at Home

Aries Risings are big on family, which of course includes their chosen family! If you plan on visiting them, expect to see a relative or two pop in.
