Love Star Signs – Sexuality, Personality and Relationships
Linda Goodman is a native of West Virginia. She popularized astrology with the publication of her book, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs in Sun Signs is the only astrology book to ever appear on the New York Times bestseller list. Since then, it has sold tens of millions of copies worldwide and is the single most widely read introduction to astrology available. Ten years after the success of Sun Signs, Goodman published Linda Goodman Love Signs which answered the question posed by almost every reader of astrology - how does my sign relate and interface with the twelve other signs of the zodiac.
Love Signs was as big an international success as was Sun Signs. They would not remember the simple rules their friends had taught them: such as that a red hot poker will burn you if you hold it too long; and that, if you cut your finger very deeply with a knife, it usually bleeds. Have you recently met an unusually friendly person with a forceful manner, a firm handclasp and an instant smile? Get ready for a dizzy dash around the mulberry bush. You've probably just been adopted by an Aries. Especially if you found it a little tough to take the lead in the conversation.
Is he committed to some idealistic cause and angrily defending the underdog? That figures. Male or female, these people will fight what they feel is an injustice on the spot, and they're not bashful about voicing their opinions. The ram will talk back to a traffic cop or an armed gangster with equal vigor, if either one happens to annoy him.
He may regret it later, but caution won't concern him in the heat of the moment. Mars people come straight to the point, with no shilly-shallying. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. It represents birth, as Pisces represents death and consciousness of the soul. The ram is conscious only of himself. He's the infant of the zodiac — the newborn baby — completely absorbed with his own toes and fingers. His needs come first.
An infant doesn't care whether or not his parents or the neighbors are sleeping. When he's hungry or wet, he yowls in discomfort.

He wants his bottle, and he wants his diaper changed now, and don't be pokey about it. When the Aries person has an idea or something he wants to get off his mind, he'll call you at four in the morning without a qualm. Why shouldn't you be awake to listen to him? He's awake. That's all that counts. He wants something. He gets it. Like the infant, Aries is concerned with the world only as it relates to himself.
But who could call the small baby truly selfish?
He's perfectly willing to lavish his smiles and favors on those who satisfy his demands. It's hard to resist a baby, because he's so totally unaware that he's causing anyone the slightest inconvenience. So it is with the ram. His innocence hangs over him and mellows his aggressiveness, like the innocence of the newborn softens his egocentricity. The baby fears nothing and no one, until he gets burned.

Even then, he'll trustingly try again, when he's forgotten the hurt. There's not a trace of cunning wile in the ram, and he'll remain this way throughout his lifetime; forever believing with all his heart, always falling down and getting up again to try once more.
Any doubts he collects along the way are immediately displaced by the next person who's kind to him, just as the baby forgets the pain of the safety pin that accidentally stuck in his leg the next time someone sprinkles the powder. The ram can make believe from here to tomorrow, and spin fabulous dreams, but he can't lie worth a tinker. What you see before you is what he is. There's nothing hidden or complicated about him.
He's just as vulnerable as the baby, and just as helpless. When stronger, more mature people force him or take things away from him, he reacts in the only manner he knows — yelling and causing so much disturbance, that people give in just to get peace. He doesn't need delicate strategy.
Lung power and self-absorbed determination suffice beautifully to allow him to get his way. Perhaps helpless is not the right word. Vulnerable, yes — but helpless, no. It's a cinch to recognize the physical appearance of the ram. Aries people have decided features, usually sharp, seldom soft or blurred. The well-marked brows often join with the narrow bridge of the nose in forming the sign of the ram, perhaps as a warning to anyone with the silly idea of trying to stop or conquer him that those symbolic horns mean business.
You may notice a mole or a scar on the head or face, a reddish cast to the hair in the sunlight, and more color than average in the complexion. You may also sense invisible sparks shooting out in all directions. The movements will usually be quick and capable, with a mental process to match. Both the male and female rams normally have broad shoulders, and they may walk with the body slightly bent forward, leading with the head, so to speak, and almost always in a great hurry.
Often, they're in a hurry to get to a brick building to knock down, though their horns may get bent in the butting.
There's little that's graceful about the ram, unless it's his smooth way of handling a crisis which never fails to surprise people who underestimate him. The bone structure is fine and strong, and few Aries people slump. Their posture reflects their supreme ego and self-confidence. If you see an Aries with drooping shoulders, he's probably a sheep type, who was badly hurt in the ego when he was young.
It may take him some time to recover, if the wounds went deep, but he'll straighten up someday. You can count on it.
Nothing keeps these people down forever, failure least of all. The Mars-ruled person will look you straight in the eye, with unabashed honesty and rather touching faith. You're his friend aren't you?
You like him, don't you? Then the tears will start, but inside. He'll never show it on the surface, if he can help it. If you see him openly weeping, you can be certain that he's been cut to the very soul in some way. Aries would rather be caught dead than be caught weak — and some of them literally risk the former to avoid the latter.
The ram will seldom glance nervously around the room. When he does, he's no longer interested in talking with you. Something else has caught his attention, and for the moment, you are forgotten.

So is what you're saying. Don't be offended. Remember the baby and his toes and fingers. He will undoubtedly be at the head of his chosen career or involved in a profession on his own. If he's not, then you can easily recognize him by the discontent he clearly shows at being forced to submit to others. You can look for a liberal attitude, lavish generosity with both time and material things, and a marked desire to lead all the marches — with loud cymbals.
But don't look for subtlety, tact or humility. The average Arien was behind the barn door when those qualities were passed out. He's a little short on patience, too. In a coffee shop, he'll quickly criticize the waitress and the sandwich, if the first is fresh and the second is stale. But he'll probably leave an unnecessarily big tip when the service is good. Aries is very direct, to put it mildly. Deceptiveness and deviousness are entirely foreign to the Mars nature. Frankness and refreshing honesty are Arien trademarks, yet rams don't make the best credit risks.
Some of them lack stability and evidence a child-like lack of responsibility. Even those who have matured can forget debts in the excitement of the ever-present new challenge of the moment, which will always consume their entire attention.
