Typically, Aries are considered dominant personalities. They know how to get things going. They’re often considered fearless and even selfish. The women in particular are very sure of what they want and know how to ask for it if not demand it. They are sexually secure and overall adventurous. I, as an Aries woman, am all of that and none of that at the same damn time.

I’m also guilty of declaring desires and frustrations without pause, only to say “I mean, I guess” in the very next moments. I trip over flat surfaces. I’ve stuttered even while talking to myself. I sometimes accidentally laugh during sad moments and am the last to catch a joke. I also struggle with being sexy and serious simultaneously. Essentially, I am the main character of the HBO show Insecure (to an extent).

I’m pretty positive that I’m not the only conundrum out there in the Aries community; hence the creation of this series. Also, this is not necessarily limited for the enjoyment of my fellow Aries folk but for anyone who has ever felt like the walking poster child for a “WTF” meme. May all awkward peoples unite!

Namaste.
