Are you an Aries Rising person? The following suggestions and celebrity Aries Rising examples will help to enhance your image. They could even bust you right out of a style rut. Aligning your style with the Rising or Ascendant sign is always a good look. It’s maximal magic and flattering.
Naturally, take the ideas you resonate with and skip the rest.
*If you don’t know what your Ascendant sign is or even what an Ascendant is: Your Ascendant – aka the rising sign – is the zodiac sign that was rising on the horizon at the time of your birth. If you know the time you were born, an Astral DNA report will reveal your Ascendant sign, along with my take on it.
RED MEANS 'GO'
For Aries Rising people, Red signals ‘go’ or – as you’re probably already in motion – ‘accelerate.’ It’s a stimulant, aphrodisiac, and your power color. Red is the color of Mars – the Aries ruler, primal passion, fire, courage, blood, and vitality.
When you wear Red – a splash of muted Maybe-Red or the whole vat of Deep Cheery Crimson – it’s energizing, and it affirms your Mars vibe – assertion, raw physicality, and spunkiness at any age.
Red is a frequent go-to for Pisces-Sun/Aries Rising Rihanna: she seems to rotate the vibe – scarlet woman red hair + lipstick one season, little red dresses the next, and then jumpsuits or red-accent denim.
If you’re feeling unpleasantly adrenal at the thought of donning a red anything, consider an accessory that you can take on and off – red-framed sunglasses or a red notebook to record your winning concepts.
Whether you have naturally lavish eyebrows or artificially augment them, it’s good for Aries Rising to have accentuated, obvious brows. Yes, they frame the eyes and give form to the face but they also echo the Aries glyph, a stylized version of the Ram’s horns.
Aries, the Ram and Mars have been connected for centuries – you may recall the incredible Ram-Sphinxes at Luxor? Appearance-wise, investing or focusing on your eyebrows – their shape, health and color – will always reap radical dividends.
Aries represents the head and even more specifically, the brow: think of a Ram in head-butting mode. They lower their head, tuck in their chin and charge at the target. The forehead is the presenting front – it symbolizes your ability to push through obstacles.
Interestingly, practically all Aries Ascendant people poke their head forward a little bit when walking. You’re practically always ahead of yourself.
FULL STRIDE IMPETUS
You know how the people who make casual clothes seem formal or they appear clipped and precise, even in athleisure? They’re not Aries Rising. You have an action Ascendant: whatever you wear, it must not restrict movement.
You’re a long-striding, speed-walking momentum player. You cannot and will not be hobbled or distracted from your mission by something itching. Chafing is an existential issue, believe it.
This gives rise to stretchy-formal-look garments that you could technically appear on television in or break into a sprint if you felt like it. Think also high-fashion sneakers and performance fabrics. Even if you have a retinue of laundry attendants, the concept of heavy-care wardrobe items offends the Aries Rising psyche.
You’d probably prefer ‘no care’ – one glance and your clothes rearrange their particles.
It may not fit your vibe but incorporating a Ram symbol would be an auspicious addition to your look. So would a Mars symbol but it is so associated with phallic symbols and Seventies Pheromonal ‘attractant’ fragrances that it could create the wrong impression.
The classic bomber jacket is a staunch wardrobe friend and in fact many of you have sentimental attachments to one or more.
Rubies, red jasper or bloodstone are also Aries-ish but even occult bling contributes to the clutter component. Remember, if it hampers your momentum, it’s not Aries-Ascendant friendly. Even prints can irritate your singular focus. Big blocks of geometric color are flattering and dramatic without being “fussy.”
The Aries Rising ideal is to command attention, not seek it.
