Aries of the Earth

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Earth.”

In Western astrology, you are an Aries.

One of your most fundamental attributes is your creativity. Perhaps your inspiration comes out in writing, painting, music, or some other art form. Whatever outlet(s) you choose, expressing yourself is one of your highest values.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as an Aries (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Aries). The characteristics of Aries are power, ambition, determination, and strength. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character for “Earth,” also known as the Chinese character “己.” This sign is like a vast field with a mild climate. Farmers work the ground, and the soft soil produces a wealth of crops. This image reveals your mission to create and nurture beauty.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your Aries characteristics combined with your nature as an Earth sign describe you as “Aries of the Earth.” Imagine a herd of rams galloping across a vast plain. As they run, crops spring up from the ground, and beautiful ripe fruit spill out of the harvest. This image reflects your destiny. You have the strength to run hard towards your goals. The more you pursue your heart’s desires, the more you will produce magnificent works of art.
