April 17 Horoscope

As an Aries born on April 17th, you are well known for your fun-loving and optimistic nature. You are naturally social and love to be surrounded with different personalities. While others enjoy sticking to routine, you prefer to have as many new experiences as possible. Much of your excitement and enjoyment of life comes from your positive world view. An optimist to the core, you can always find the best in people and situations. These kind-hearted and upbeat qualities have earned you many friends and admirers throughout your life.

The elemental pair of the Aries is fire and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only cardinal relationship with fire. Your special elemental connection gives your personality the spark of a leader and initiator. When something grabs your interest, it is the influence of fire that fuels a burning passion deep within your being. As you embrace fire's positive influences, you will continue on a path to success. However, you should be aware of the challenges of your elemental influence, which include impatience and impulsiveness.

Your sign 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 dose of Jupiter's planetary power. The influence of Mars can be seen in your assertive, vigorous and action-oriented qualities, but it is Jupiter, the planet of expansion, that can be credited for your truth-seeking, generous and idealistic nature. Your unique combination of planetary influences gives you the greatest thirst for knowledge of all the Aries Decans. You have a natural curiosity that may take you into higher learning or into the depths of philosophy. When paired with your optimism, your tendency to be a dreamer can be a challenge, because you fail to see the realistic dangers of your actions. Take time to realize the negatives as well as the positives and you will continue on a path to success. In love, find a partner that shares in your love of life, but does not take advantage of your kindness.

A natural leader with a gifted mind, you are well-suited for a variety of career paths. Your charm and sense of humor may be a perfect fit for media or journalism, much like Harry Reasoner, who was also born on April 17th. In the same light, you could take your leadership abilities to the world of business, administration or management. On the other hand, your need for excitement could make a career in television or film appealing. If this is the case, look to the varied career of Jennifer Gardner, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for inspiration.
