Aries Symbol

The Aries symbol, or glyph, is designed to depict the curving horns of a Ram. This is the Aries horoscope symbol and the character that represents this zodiac sign.

Each zodiac sign has a special symbol, or glyph, that’s associated with the mythology behind it. For example, Sagittarius is ruled by the mythical Centaur—the Archer—so its glyph resembles an arrow pointed skyward. Taurus is symbolized by the Bull and its glyph is a circle with two horns on top. Almost all of the 12 zodiac signs are depicted by an animal, with the exception of Gemini, Virgo and Libra. The Aries symbol also has a unique meaning.

What is the symbol for Aries?

The Aries horoscope symbol is the Ram, a sheep with large curving horns. The Aries sign symbol is usually depicted as a very simple graphic meant to resemble the head of the Ram. Aries dates typically fall from March 20 to April 19. Stubbornness is one of the main Aries traits. Thus, the Aries symbol of the Ram expresses this zodiac sign’s determination and fiery, unstoppable energy. As a driven fire sign and an ambitious cardinal sign, Aries will butt their “horns” against any obstacle until they break it down!
