Aries are the first of the zodiac sign. Does that make them more important than the rest? If you asked any Aries, they would confidently say yes. Is it a coincidence that Aries have some serious girl power in the celebrity world? ? Nope; it makes total sense!
Aries season goes from March 21 through April 19. The competitive Aries is used to being first in everything. Even if they aren’t the best at an individual sport or activity, their passion and optimism shines through. Aries don’t like to sit still, which explains their impatience and impulsive tendencies. Hey, at least they have an excuse. What can the rest of us say?!
These lady celebrity Aries are here to make the world a better place!
