The first sign in Western Astrology. A Cardinal sign, a fire sign, a masculine sign, an emotional sign. The great doers of the zodiac, incredibly strong-willed, driven people. Used to having their way, and if negotiations are not possible, make it so they have their way. Undaunted by obstacles, somewhat hard headed when it comes to seeing their opposition's point of view. Valiant, pompous, quick-witted, stubborn, impatient, big hearted.

Their colors are orange and purple, their stone is the diamond, their herb is ginger. They rule the face and the head, very commonly break their noses early in their youth. Ruled by the planet Mars, what else? Rule the The Emperor tarot card. Most well known leader in history: Alexander the Great.
