As an Aries born on April 8th, your ambition and creativity are amongst your most defining qualities. Highly motivated and determined, you set high goals for yourself. While others enjoy the idea of success, you are willing to devote the time and effort necessary to actually meet your goals. Your friends and family admire your drive, but it may be your creativity that they appreciate the most. In all matters of life, you use your creative mind to display a charming personality and an enjoyable sense of humor.

Fire

Fire is the paired element of the Aries and in fact, your sign has the only cardinal connection with the element of all the zodiac signs. Your special connection with fire gives your personality the self-starting qualities of a spontaneous flame. More so, it is fire's influence that can be credited with the sparks of leadership that you often witness. As you embrace fire's positive qualities, your inner passion will continue to burn with strength. Take care to avoid the impatience that most fire zodiac signs fall victim to and success will be within your grasp.

The Aries is under the planetary rulership of Mars, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, the influence of the Sun also plays a key role in your personality. Mars is the planet of assertiveness and subsequently, its influence can be witnessed in your strong, aggressive and vigorous qualities. Similarly, it is the Sun, the planet of integration, that can be given credit for your vitality, creativity, inspiration, willpower and individuality. Of all the Aries Decans, your unique planetary influence makes you the most charismatic. Your playful and youthful personality creates a special charm that draws others in, which is perfect for you, since you love to be the center of attention. The one downfall of your planetary influence is the tendency to brag and boast of your many accomplishments. Although your need to share your achievements with others is understandable, you must practice humility. In love, find a partner that shares in your energy, passion and appreciation of life, as this will bring you the most happiness and satisfaction.

While there are many factors that go into finding the perfect career, you are lucky enough to have many options to explore. As a strong leader, you may do well in fields such as law, business, politics, or management. On the other hand, your creativity could take you into fields such as graphic design or writing. You may find you have a special knack for bring a smile to people's face, much like comedian Shecky Greene, who was also born on April 8th. Since you enjoy being the center of attention, you may do well in media or television, which was the case for Kirsten Storms, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an empty hammock. This symbol suggests the importance of a rhythmic existence. Success cannot be found with complete dedication to activity or rest, but only though a balanced combination of the both.
