Aries (The Ram) is called the "Prince
of Celestial Signs", and was considered
the sign of first importance by many ancient
nations and proponents of Astrology. In
the zodiac of the ancient Hebrews, Aries
was the sign of Gad. In the Chinese zodiac,
Aries was known as "The White Sheep."
Children born under this sign, that is
between March 21st and April 19th, can
be somewhat difficult to deal with, unless
you have the understanding of their nature.
That is reason, love, and kindness.
They do not easily take for granted an
adults instructions, or requests without
a reason and explanation for them. They
can be stubborn and self-willed, and to
discipline an Aries child the best method
is a calm and reasoned talk, preferably
Corporal punishment is not the way with
these children. It is wrong for several
reasons. One is that, being very strong-willed,
the amount of physical punishment required
to bring them to your way of thinking
if they believe you are wrong, would probably
