Being an Aries born on April 12th, your personality is defined by optimism, generosity and a strong appreciation for fun. In all matters of life, you are able to see the positive. This quality allows you to see the bright side of things, even in situations that appear to be bleak or dismal. While your friends and family often marvel at your positive world view, it is your generosity they truly appreciate. At times, you can be genuinely selfless and do just about anything for someone you care about. These qualities have built you many strong relationships, which is perfect, because you enjoy company on your many adventures.

Fire

Fire is your sign's paired element and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only fundamental connection with the element. Your special relationship with fire gives you the spark to be a leader and self-starter. More so, it is fire's influence that manifests in your burning passion and determination. When you are near a goal, your inner flame burns with even more fortitude until your goals are achieved. Impatience and impulsiveness challenge all fire zodiac signs, but if you avoid these tendencies, fire's influence will put you on a path to success.

Your sign is ruled by the planet Mars, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the Aries sign, you also receive a helping of Jupiter's planetary influence. Mars is the planet of assertiveness, and subsequently is responsible for your more vigorous and action-oriented qualities. In the same light, it is Jupiter, the planet of expansion, that links to your optimism, pursuit of knowledge and appreciation for exploration. Your unique combination of planetary influences makes you the most intellectual and adventurous of all the Aries Decans. You will always have a thirst for learning and knowledge, which may lead you into the depths of philosophical thinking. These qualities make you a natural dreamer, but luckily your material pursuits help to keep you grounded. While optimism is one of your greatest assets, it can become detrimental if you fail to acknowledge the realistic downfalls of ideas. In love, find a partner that shares in your appreciation for life and helps you curb your unrealistic expectations.

Your social gifts and quick mind give you the opportunity for success in numerous fields, so your greatest challenge may be settling on one. You could stick to a traditional career, such as education, business or teaching, but your need for new experiences may lead you to take exciting chances with your career. While you may not reach the national fame of David Letterman, who was also born on April 12th, your innate charm and upbeat give you many followers in media or journalism. With your adventurous personality, you may be drawn to the world of entertainment or television, not unlike Ed O'Neill, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires. This symbol is a positive representation of cosmic optimism. In your own life, remember that through cooperation and camaraderie, it is possible to fulfill all goals. Similarly, this symbol suggests that you may be approaching a time of abundance.
