Aries are the bold and fearless leaders of the zodiac. With bright ideas and a passionate spark that inspires others, it's no wonder you often find yourself in a position of authority. You are assertive, strong-willed, and competitive in every area of life, so much so, that it's not uncommon for your sign to set out on your own and become an entrepreneur when you no longer feel challenged and inspired.
