There are 12 Aries signs in Primal Astrology, one to go with each of the 12 signs in the Chinese Zodiac. The Aries personality is a strong one and thus the influence of contradictory signs often gets overwhelmed by the standard Aries traits. On the other hand, complementary astrological influences can make a big difference as well, strengthening similarities and prioritizing certain Aries traits in both conscious and subconscious ways.

The following 12 Primal Zodiac signs are based on the combination of Aries and one of each of the signs of the Chinese Zodiac. If you do not know both of your signs (Western & Eastern), then you can use your birth date to find out which of the Aries signs you belong to.


Aries + Dog = Doberman Pinscher

Aries + Dragon = Tyrannosaurus Rex

Aries + Horse = Hammerhead Shark

Aries + Monkey = Gorilla

Aries + Ox = Hippopotamus

Aries + Pig = Dodo

Aries + Rabbit = Llama

Aries + Rat = Piranha

Aries + Rooster = Goldfinch

Aries + Sheep = Catfish

Aries + Snake = Praying Mantis

Aries + Tiger = Rhinoceros

I could go into a lengthy explanation of the general Aries personality traits here, but it would do little good. Each of the 12 Primal Zodiac signs above contains not only information about the Aries star sign but also takes into account which of the Eastern influences will play into the overall essence of the Aries personality. To put it simply, it's better to just find your Primal Zodiac sign and read that description, as each Primal Zodiac sign is 1200% more accurate to each individual than the sign of Aries could be on its own.

These Aries signs are based on all of the concepts related to this sign, including adventurousness, courage, confidence, and enthusiasm. Aries is a brave and forthright sign, choosing to risk their own safety and reputation for a chance at greatness. This is in no way lost when including the outside influences of astrological planets and stars - something that can only truly be done with the use of a custom birth chart.
