Aries – March 21 to April 19
Aries (Latin for “ram”) is the first astrological sign in the zodiac, spanning the first 30 degrees of celestial longitude (0°≤ λ <30°), and originates from the constellation of the same name. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this sign from approximately March 20 to April 21 each year. This time duration is exactly the first month of the Solar Hijri calendar (Arabic Hamal/Persian Farvardin/Wray).
People who’s birthdays are between the 21st March to 19th April are born under the zodiac sign of Aries. Each zodiac sign is allocated a crystal which resonates with its sign. The crystal for those born under the sign of Aries is Diamond.
Of the four natural elements that represent the zodiac symbols (air, earth, fire and water), Aries is a fire sign and its astrological symbol is represented by the ram constellation. Those born under the sign of the ram are known to be energetic, adventurous, dynamic, and impulsive.

Personality traits of Aries
The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is the trailblazers. Passionate and independent, Aries will never do something just because everyone else is doing it—a Ram needs to be 100 percent committed to the task at hand. Competitive to the max, the best way to motivate an Aries is to turn something into a contest. Aries will put everything they have (and then some) into winning. Loyal, smart, and impulsive, they always have multiple projects on their mind, and won’t be satisfied until their work, social life, and personal lives line up exactly with the dream life they’ve envisioned. Those who are drawn to magnetic Aries may have trouble keeping up—but if they can, they’ll have a friend for life.
As a cardinal sign, the Ram holds the qualities of leadership, making those with Aries in their charts great at pioneering projects, and taking the “front line” in strategies. Natives from this sign can be thought of as the “first responders” of the zodiac that will fearlessly and impulsively spring into action, reacting immediately to, and thriving in crisis or challenges.
Communication is potentially the biggest challenge of all for the Ram, who may already be out the door by the time the conversation is getting started. Though they may benefit from listening to others, they may not enjoy hearing recommendations or advice, preferring to learn from direct experience. Again, this could be a strength in the right circumstances, but their rash decisions could be self-destructive and affect others as well.
Aries are not natural homemakers. Their preference is to be out doing and when at home they tend to work on projects to advance their career. However, they do enjoy having a place to go to re-group. They can become impatient at times and get bored with routine easily.
Aries are most compatible with other air or fire signs – Sagittarius, Aquarius, Leo and Gemini.
So, as you can see, there are several crystals which resonate well with the Aries zodiac sign. Choose an individual crystal or mix them up and carry them with you throughout your day to keep yourself balanced in the Aries energy.
