As an Aries born on April 11th, your personality is defined by your fun loving, optimistic and generous nature. You truly enjoy life and take all opportunities to have new and exciting experiences. This quality is paired nicely with your optimism, as you have the unique ability to always see the best in people and situations. Your friends and family have always admired your positive outlook on life, almost as much as they appreciate your generous nature. There is little you would not do for a family member, friends or loved one.

Fire

Your sign's elemental pair is fire and in fact, only the Aries has a cardinal connection with the fire element. As is the case with all fire signs, passion and determination burn deep within your being. When you are in the face of a challenge, your flame burns with fortitude until your goals are achieved. More so, it is the spark of fire's influence that makes you a natural leader and a self-starter. Embracing fire's qualities will become one of your greatest assets, as long as you avoid the impulsive tendencies that plague all fire signs.

The Aries is under the planetary rule of Mars, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a generous helping of Jupiter's planetary power. While it is the power of Mars that is responsible for your assertiveness, action and vigor, it is the special influence of Jupiter that contributes to your optimism, generosity and desire for truth. More so than any of the Aries Decans, your planetary influence makes you interested in learning. Throughout life you may delve into many topics, such as philosophy or religion. Although you may have the mind of the dreamer, you also have a passion for the finer things in life. Your greatest challenge will be overcoming the unrealistic sides of your optimism, so take time to consider the realistic consequences of your actions. In love, find a partner that does not take advantage of your optimistic and generous nature, but shares in your passion for life.

Your love of life may make it difficult to commit to one career, but luckily, your natural talents will give you many options to explore. Your intellectual interests could take you into mentally demanding careers, such as science, research or higher education. On the other hand, your desire for success may take you in to the world of business or commerce. Your innate optimism, paired with musical ability could make you an upbeat lyricist, which as the case for pop star Joss Stone, who was also born on April 11th. In whichever career you just, take inspiration from the intensity and passion of Vincent Gallo, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a boxer entering the ring. In our society social aggressiveness is commonplace and in some cases even glorified. In your own life, this symbol suggests that you be encountering the overwhelming aspects of power.
