Aries Sun Sign dates for 2023 (March 22nd – April 20th)

As a curious parent, it’s important to know that the dates and times of each Sun Sign can vary slightly from year to year. If your child is born on, or close to these dates, a Birth Chart can accurately decipher their true Sun Sign. The time and location are also valuable details. For example: The Sun moves into Taurus close to 6:30pm on April 20th, 2023, Sydney, Australia time. Birth Charts are coloured with vibrational influences and angles that add flavour to your Child’s Sun Sign expression.

It’s also interesting to note that each Sun Sign has its own Symbol, Element and Ruling Planet.

They synergise and flow through your child’s character. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so let’s begin by delving into the energies and personality traits of the Aries Sun Child, followed by helpful tips to guide, support and spark their joy.

Aries Sun Child Symbol: Ram

In astrology, the symbols are representative of the energy and characteristics of each of the twelve signs, which mostly derive from Ancient Greece, Rome, and as far back as Babylonian times. The Aries Sun Child’s symbol is The Ram. It rules with the head, and leans forward with speed and focus.

The Ram is known for its; Vitality, Strength, Fearlessness, Power and Determination.

Aries Sun Child Element: Fire

Interestingly, Fire, Earth, Air and Water are known as the four elements in astrology. Each element belongs to three of the twelve zodiac signs. The four elements relate to different aspects of the self and Fire relates to ‘our energy in motion’. It is expressed externally, comes with a sense of possibility and self motivation, and is the element for Aries.

Aries shares the element of Fire with Leo and Sagittarius. The three signs possess individual qualities based around the element of Fire, and when grouped together have a common thread of compatibility within the zodiac.

Lively, active, exciting, explosive and full of colour, there’s always a hive of activity around children with strong Fire compatibility!

Aries Sun Child Ruling Planet: Mars

Over time, each sign has been allocated a Ruling Planet. From an astrological perspective, the zodiac signs and planets in the Solar System were matched up, largely based on their thematic relationship to one another. It’s interesting to note that as you foster your Aries Sun Child’s radiance, Mars comes into play!

Activation, courage and assertion are all Mars words that can add an extra layer of insight to the true essence of your Aries Sun Child.

Is your Aries Sun Child a fierce little competitor in all they set their sights on? If so, they’re living true to their Sun Signs main objective, by activating the vibrations of their Ruling Planet, Mars.

When tuning into the dynamic of Mars, and how it may super charge your Aries Sun Child’s personality, consider these phrases; Warrior like and pointed, Strength of will, Prods into action, Sense of immediacy, Self motivated. Have you noticed your Aries Sun Child loves the feeling of winning?

Did you know that in Astrology, from the day you are born, your life force, energy and expression is largely determined by the Sun’s position in the Zodiac? The Sun represents life and illuminates the world around us. It is the largest star in the Solar System, and its energy vibrates and adorns you with the flavours and characteristics of the Sign you were born under.
Your Sun Sign, also known as your Star Sign, represents your core personality, and how you shine through life. It’s where you are at your most luminous. From an earthbound perspective, the Sun takes one year to complete a circuit of the Zodiac, and spends approximately four weeks in each of the twelve signs.

Aries Sun Child Quote:

    • I really hope this adds a sprinkle of added insight for you and your Aries Sun Child;)


  • I’m not into star signs but it was interesting to read.


  • My son is now 21 and he definitely matches most of the criteria above.


  • I’m not really interested in the star signs


  • NO idea what star sign my kids are, but I do know this is mine – and not very accurate.

    • Thanks for sharing. Occasionally it doesn’t quite ring true:) In most cases, a complete birth chart analysis has the potential to hone in on your unique astrological signature which can be very interesting.


  • Very cute


  • I have no idea what star sign my kids are!
    I haven’t read or even thought about them since I was in high school.


  • My eldest is an Aries and very much wants to be first and win ! :)

  • My late husband fitted your reading to an absolute T. Thanks for the post.


  • This sounds a lot light my Aries son :)


  • I love reading this little kids star signs. They are so well written


  • I don’t look to the stars signs to find knowledge and insights into the characteristics of my children or myself


  • These are always great to read but I never really believe in them.
