Active, Impulsive, Energetic, Generous.
You are optimistic and open to change and new experiences.
The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries can be very self oriented, have strong personalities, and gravitate to the center of where the action is. Natural leaders, Aries often feel as if they are headed for success.
For an Aries, the chase is often more exciting than the end result. Thriving on challenge, you believe you can do anything. Sometimes you may feel insecure underneath, but others rarely see that side of you.
Sometimes you lack tact; however, your abruptness is rarely on purpose. Blame is on your impulsive nature. You are a generous giver and you like to be acknowledged for this trait. People love being around you because you are optimistic and bring excitement to their lives. Nevertheless, they don’t always like your bossiness and are afraid to cross you in an argument.

You are active and love the outdoors. Physical activities will let you forget about work/school and everyday stress for a while. Plan a hiking or skiing trip if you enjoy Muggle-like activities. A long distance broom expedition or Quidditch match with old mates from school could be in order as well.
Journalist, publicity, advertising, radio, or publishing. Perhaps persuing a career with The Daily Prophet (though not the Quibbler as it requires a more vivid imagination than most Aries are capable of) or Wizarding Wireless Network would best suit your skills and mindset. Though don't rule out a career in Quidditch, especially if you were a Gryffindor.
The Gryffindor Aries is extremely idealistic, and has a tendency to fight hard for many causes - the more lost, the better. Gryffindors born under this sign will also have very short fuses, and can be expected to fight regularly with other students, over ethical questions or over anything else that makes a good excuse. Since Mars is a planet that encourages war games and competition and bursts of hard physical activity, there may be many Quidditch players born under these aspects. A Gryffindor Aries is an open book; a truth potion would never be needed on one, because they are hopelessly honest and open. These wizards will display uncanny charisma and leadership ability, and will be among the most popular within their class.
Hufflepuff Ariens have an extreme abundance of energy; however, the usual Hufflepuff tendency to work hard out of duty is modified by the Aries tendency to value play over work. Therefore, expect long periods of playfulness and seeming indolence punctuated by brief, manic bursts of industry. These Hufflepuffs may also be more ambitious and socially aggressive than average, making them clear leaders in their House. Their emotional warmth, open hearts, madcap sense of humour, and quirky independence will endear them to many people, but their naivete makes for easy exploitation by more ruthless sorts of people.
These Ravenclaws will have lightning-fast mental reflexes. Aries is an intellectual sign, but it is also an impatient sign; Ravenclaws who were born under this sign are likely to tolerate no dull wits or stupidity, whether they see this lack of mental competence in themselves (in which case they will berate themselves for not understanding, or give up quickly in frustration without really trying to overcome their difficulty in learning) or in others (in which case they will lash out at the offender with acidic comments and haughty, cutting looks). These Ravenclaws will want to be at the head of the class, dominating other students in their chosen intellectual field, and may be almost as competitive as Slytherins. However, the true aim of every Ravenclaw is knowledge, knowledge, and more knowledge. While a Slytherin might see losing a magical duel or being bested by another student in a DADA class as humiliating, the Ravenclaw will probably just take delight in competition for its own sake, and see defeat as a learning experience.
A Slytherin Aries is a bundle of contradictions. In some ways, they have the potential to be the strongest of their House - the intensity, drive, and brilliant visionary dreams of the Aries combined with the innate leadership skills, the charisma, and the profound sense of self (including the eccentric lack of interest in conforming to what other people think) is stuff of which great magical legends are made. However, a Slytherin Aries has much to learn about politics, knowing who is an appropriate object of trust and who is not trustworthy, knowing when to keep one's mouth shut, and knowing when to avoid acting on impulse in order to use a situation to its best advantage. Although they hate to admit it, these Slytherins are easily manipulated by more cynical, shrewd peers in the Serpent's Den. If they can learn to manage their blind spots, they will go far. Slytherin Aries types can be quite cruel, especially if they have enough physical prowess to bully smaller students; those that are not cruel can still be thoughtless and brutally tactless without actually meaning to cause damage.
