People born between March 21 and April 20 fall under the Aries sign of the zodiac.
Aries are adventurous, passionate, and curious by nature. Aries are also incredibly sensitive.
This sensitivity comes as a surprise in light of Aries other characteristics. It takes an understanding of what makes Aries tick to appreciate why Aries are so sensitive.
Aries have a tendency to take the lead. Their courageous nature and the strength of their convictions spurs Aries to search out challenges and adventures. Aries enjoy a challenge. The adrenaline rush and the opportunity to pit their strength and intelligence against a worthy opponent play into Aries passionate nature. Aries throw themselves into projects and relationships wholeheartedly, often without much thought to the consequences.
Aries also tend towards arrogance. The strength of their convictions and their innate stubbornness makes it difficult for Aries to back down. Some Aries are downright confrontational. This is a problematic trait, as impulsive Aries does not always think before acting or speaking. Those involved romantically with Aries often accuse Aries of being insensitive. This is ironic because partners and family members of Aries know that Aries are themselves incredibly sensitive.
Aries Sensitive Side
Aries’ very nature sets them up for hypersensitivity. Aries are passionate, driven, and often impulsive in their decision making. Paired with their stubbornness, these qualities ensure that Aries repeatedly find themselves in difficult situations of their own making. An impulsive business venture or a poorly thought through plan results in Aries feeling foolish and also unable to admit that they were wrong.
Aries passionate side leads them into friendships and romantic partnerships that consume them. When feelings are not returned, Aries are devastated. Their stubbornness and confrontational nature make Aries difficult to compromise with. Aries have a hard time understanding why their partners get frustrated with them. When a partner does not share Aries excitement over a new project, Aries takes it personally.
Aries want to lead. Their strong convictions and enthusiasm are catching. Others find Aries’ enthusiasm contagious and are eager to follow Aries. This backfires when Aries make a bad decision or act without proper research. Aries have a very hard time admitting they were wrong, and they also crave approval. When approval is taken away, even if it is Aries’ fault, Aries are terribly upset.
Aries resiliency helps them counter their innate sensitivity. It enables them to bounce back from depression. Unfortunately, Aries do not always learn from their mistakes. This means that every time Aries bounces back, they are at risk of repeating the same mistakes.
Aries are capable of self-reflection. Aries that realize their mistakes are usually too hard on themselves. They cannot believe that they let themselves make an error, and are deaf to others’ attempts to comfort them. Aries high personal expectations are often unreasonable. Failure to achieve these goals leaves Aries feeling dejected.
Learning From Sensitivity
Sensitivity is the price Aries pay for their passion. Aries are sensitive because their nature tends towards the extreme. It is impossible for Aries to live up to their own expectations and for others to live up to the expectations Aries have for them. Aries can learn from their sensitivity. Their impetuous personality often offends others. By taking the time to analyze their own sensitivity, Aries better understands the impact their actions have on others.
