Qualities of Aries Spread

On This Day

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, red is the primary color, the lucky day is Tuesday, and the best location for success is in any big city. Aries rules the house of the self, physical appearance, and first impressions.

Today marks the first day of the astrological sign of Aries, the Ram.

Summation of Spread
