The physical characteristics of Aries are often quite obvious, perhaps because this sign is the first of the zodiac wheel. But take note, these will hold true if an individual has a strong presence of Aries in their birth chart, and an Aries appearance can also be produced by a prominent Moon in Aries or if Aries is the rising sign.

The Physical Characteristics of Aries

Aries Sun sign individuals come in all shapes, colors, and sizes, so when trying to spot the distinguishing physical characteristics of Aries, you should begin with the body part that Aries rules. Aries rules the head.

An Aries' Head

An Aries' head is usually quite prominent, either because the Aries walks with their head slightly forward or because the structure of the face is finely formed and distinctive. Sometimes, it's a combination of both. Headaches and migraines are also common for an Aries.

An Aries' Hair

The hair on the head is usually quite thick; many Aries men tend to keep all or most of their hair well into advanced age. Additionally, their hair can be dark or light, but it almost always has a slight reddish cast to it that's particularly evident when they're in the sun.

An Aries' Eyes

Another distinctive Arian trait is the eyebrows. A Males Aries' eyebrows tend to be quite thick, while the females typically enjoy a more arched eyebrow. An Aries' eyes are usually sharp, alert, and often almond shaped. Eye strain can be common.

An Aries Nose

An Aries' nose is typically distinctive and even occasionally large or prominent on the face. If you ask an Aries, the odds are extremely good that the nose has actually been broken a time or two.

An Aries Lips

Aries' lips are typically quite sensual and either their top or the bottom lip will stick out. However, the top lip will be well-curved and is usually thinner in appearance.

An Arie's Face

An Aries' face tends to flush. Aries men and women typically flush red when they feel:

  • Excited: When Aries hears good news, the color will flood their face.
  • Angry: You can always tell when rams are truly angry because they will turn quite red.
  • Embarrassed or hot: Aries also flushes when they are embarrassed or when they overexert themselves such as when exercising.

The Aries' Body

Aries tends to enjoy very robust health; the physical body of Aries is very strong, even muscular, and they have incredible recuperative powers. However, they can suffer from fevers, skin rashes, and insect bites. In fact, most Aries have very sensitive skin, so they should be very careful to avoid harsh chemicals while keeping a close eye on allergic reactions to both food and products.

Additionally, an Aries is often accident prone and needs to be wary of:

  • Trauma and accidents to the head
  • Burns to the face
  • Sharp objects, such as knives, since these individuals frequently get cut
  • Falls, scrapes, and other general bruises

These are usually caused by Aries moving too fast and not paying attention to their surroundings. If you're an Aries, or love one, you've probably already noticed that they suffer from an inordinate amount of accidents and close health calls.

An Aries Women and an Aries Men

Aries women and Aries men are more physically similar than they are different. They have the same general physical characteristics, but they are more feminine and refined in an Aries woman.

  • A male Aries' head will be larger than an Aries woman's.
  • A male Aries' hairline will be higher than an Aries' woman's.
  • A male Arie's brow will be lower on the face than an Aries woman's.
  • A Male Aries' nose will be more prominent than an Aries woman's.

Aries Erogenous Zones

On a much lighter note, the physical characteristics of Aries can also help guide you to the sign's erogenous zones. Not surprisingly, the erotic zones are found on Aries' ruling body part, the head. Running your fingers through Aries' hair or even providing an impromptu scalp massage will send Aries into a state of euphoria and a fit of ecstasy. The ears are also quite sensitive. The odds are very good you will receive a positive response if you blow softly into your Aries' ears while providing a gentle scalp massage.

You're More Than Your Aries Sun

Most astrologers will tell you that your Rising sign is much more representative of your physical appearance and your health than your Sun sign. The Rising sign often describes two-thirds, while your Sun sign describes approximately one-third. Of course, if you have 3 or 4 out of the 5 personal planets (the Moon through Mars) in another astrological sign, you'll partially take its physical characteristics. Defining physical characteristics using the Sun sign only can be a bit tricky and misleading.
