Gather round because it’s time to talk about the first sign of the zodiac: Aries. Born from approximately March 21 to April 19 (with some variation depending on the year), these bold rams are known for being assertive, energetic, and intense, and all you have to do is look at some famous Aries celebrities to see that. While some celebs born under Aries don’t exactly personify their sign (Paul Rudd is an Aries??), others t-o-t-a-l-l-y embody what Aries are all about (Kourtney Kardashian = Aries queen, no doubt about it) and to illustrate this, we’ve rounded up some of the most Aries celebs around.
Here’s what you should know: As fire signs, Aries are spontaneous, passionate, outspoken, and direct, and as cardinal signs, they like to take charge. Ruled by Mars, they’re competitive and adventurous, and they might have just a *bit* of a temper. They’ve been called both the “leader” and the “baby” of the zodiac, and they sometimes speak before they think or let their temper get the better of them—but luckily, they’re quick to apologize and move on (unlike grudge-holding Scorpio). With Aries, life is never boring, and you can always depend on them to have your back, no matter what.
