Extraverted, independent, funny, and refreshingly honest – an Aries has lots to offer as a friend.
Your Ram buddy will stick by your side, always lend a hand in a crisis, and make your life a whole lot more interesting!
Here are five reasons why you need an Aries in your life:
1. They will never be a drain on your time or attention:
Arians pride themselves on being independent, much preferring to offer help than receive it.
They will not subject you to lengthy self-centered monologues about their personal problems or ask you at the last minute for a drive to the airport.
They would describe themselves as “low-maintenance” – and they’d be right.
On the downside, it can take a while to convince an Aries that it’s OK to open up and ask for help from time to time.
You’ll have to be patient – remember, this is a proud sign.
Your best bet is to tell them that if they let you lend a hand, they’d be doing you a favor.
2. They will defend you, even when you’re in the wrong:
People born under this sign believe that loyalty is the most important ingredient in a good friendship.
Once an Aries decides that they are your friend, they will defend you to the death.
It’s not that they are willing to lie on your behalf – it’s just that they see it as their duty to uphold your reputation.
In fact, they can take this tendency a little too far.
If you have an Aries friend, you might occasionally have to say, “I appreciate your support, but I really have made a mistake this time!”
3. They will always take charge when needed:
Being naturally ambitious with an abundance of energy, Arians love to take on leadership positions.
They like formulating a plan and, frankly, they enjoy ordering people around.
However, this trait comes in handy when you need someone to decide where you are going to eat lunch, or which movie to see at the cinema.
Some people mistakenly think that Arians are arrogant and believe themselves to be better than everyone else.
This isn’t true – they simply know where their strengths lie, and they aren’t afraid to use them.
If you were to ask them, “What are your top three talents?” they’d be able to list them without hesitation.
Arians tend to do well in job interviews because they are comfortable selling themselves.
Ask them for tips when it’s time to make your next career move.
4. They will always cheer you on:
Arians not only love to reach their goals, but they also revel in their friends’ triumphs.
They are one of the least jealous signs of the Zodiac.
As far as they are concerned, your success is their success.
Some people refer to them as the “natural cheerleaders of the zodiac.”
They will support you in trying to reach your goals, and they make wonderful accountability buddies.
For example, if you want to lose weight, your Aries friend will be happy to check in every few days and ask whether you’ve been sticking to your exercise routine.
They also like to take an innovative approach to problem-solving, so if you hit a stumbling block they will always be happy to suggest a new path to your goal.
5. Arians are straightforward:
You can usually tell how an Aries is feeling just by looking at their face.
These individuals are not very good at keeping their emotions hidden, and they are typically very direct with their loved ones.
It’s hard for them to tell even a small lie.
Their mantra is, “Truth, no matter what the cost, comes first!”
This can sting at times, but they aren’t acting from a place of malice.
They see it as their duty to let you know when you veer off-course.
To their credit, they are also willing to take constructive criticism.
There’s no hypocrisy here.
Just don’t put them in any professional or personal position that requires any degree of diplomacy or sensitivity.
If they have a problem with you, you’ll be the first to know.
An Aries doesn’t bother gossiping or complaining about you behind your back.
Instead, they’ll phone you up or come knocking on your door, demanding that the two of you sit down and discuss the matter immediately.
On the plus side, they don’t bear grudges.
As long as you are suitably truthful and apologetic, they’ll forgive you.
When you first meet an Aries, you may be intimidated by their forceful personalities and naked desire to excel at anything and everything.
However, you’ll soon learn that their resilient exterior masks a sensitive, caring friend.
With an Aries by your side, you’ll always feel loved.
