Minnie came after a very difficult period in her parents life, they had been trying for a child for a good number of years, with little success, and had begun looking into both magic and muggle methods for improving their chances when her mother finally fell pregnant with Minnie. It was a very tricky pregnancy, with her mother eventually giving birth at just 29 weeks, making Minnie very early. She was additionally tiny when she was born, given the difficulties that her mother had and the earliness of her birth, which was why her parents began calling her Minnie ust as a term of endearment, and it became her name. They had a few names planned in their head for her or him, had she been a boy, but none of them suited as well as Minnie did. They had thought maybe she’d grow out of the name and that they’d come to regret it but they haven’t. Minnie likes her name, there are the odd jokes about her name, but it’s not that uncommon a name that she has reason to be singled out because of it. Minnie has always liked the story behind her name, finding that it was just a name that suited her, and had started as a term of endearment, so much a more interesting story than her parents picking the name out of a book or from another member of their family. The middle name, is her mother’s maiden name and a long running tradition of her mother’s side. Her mother kept her surname when she married Minnie’s father, but agreed to have Minnie take the father’s surname, so long as the middle name was the family name and it came with the argeement that she could switch them around at any point without ill feelings from either parent. Her surname is of course her father’s surname. His family had moved around a lot, his great grandfather had been born and raised in greece before moving to Mexico, and finally her grandfather moved to the UK before her father’s birth, and despite all these moves, they’ve kept the name. Minnie doesn’t mind her names, or her full name. It’s an interesting enough name, and in her mind it’s just that. A name. She knows that names carry a lot of weight and certain her parents have reminded her the importance of a name, but she also knows she has to earn the surnames and the status that comes with them.
Given that Minnie is already mostly a nickname, she does not have any other ones. There aren’t any deep desires in Minnie to actually have a nickname, she doesn’t believe that she particularly needs one. Nicknames are for friends, and Minnie doesn’t have any. Her parents can often use terms of endearment with her like sweetheart, sweetie, honey etc, but those are not nicknames. She would only really respond to them on occasion and only from her parents. Minnie doesn’t mind nicknames in general but does just figure that she doesn’t need one at all. At best Minnie knows she would respond to someone saying Min, or something like that, but that would require her to have closer friends who would feel comfortable doing that and Minnie doesn’t yet have that. She has always known that nicknames were terms of endearment and friendship so she thinks it makes more sense that she wouldn’t have one given that she’s got very little of that.
Minnie is currently 15 years old. Her birthday has always been a relatively quiet affair, her parents shower her with age appropriate gifts and they go out for dinner to a nice restaurant, which as the years have gone on have gotten increasingly more fancy and upscale. Minnie had never been to a birthday party before, she’s never been allowed one or even to go to one, and she would love to experience such a thing, but she appreciates the time she can spend with her parents and enjoys the dinners that they have in a nice restaurant. She knows that even if it’s her birthday, there’s no time in her schedule for more than one event and her parents would always rather she spent it with them.
25th March 2037. Minnie was born in the late morning on the 25th March 2037, her parents had been very careful with the pregnancy, her mother had suffered many miscarriages before and they were overly cautious with this occasion, but other than her mother not feeling great for most of it, Minnie was born at term, with a relatively easy birth. She was a fairly loud baby when she was born, crying louder than any of the other babies born at the same time as her. Minnie was a small baby despite the full term, her mother had been very careful of her food intake, but this had just resulted in Minnie being on the smaller size. It wasn’t a particularly long birth, and because Minnie was born pretty healthy she didn’t have to stay hospital long, within a couple of days Minnie was brought home. Her parents were very pleased with this, they have subsequently tried to have more children, but eventually after more miscarriages gave up when Minnie was about five, focusing all of their attention upon her.

He was born and raised in a suburb of London. His father was in the army before the move to the UK. He was raised in a very strict, religious family. He was studious student, achieving highly in school, so much so that he attended Cambridge university before joining the UK army. Where he served until moving to live in New Zealand with his wife. He is a muggle, who came to learn about the magical world when he and his wife finally got married. He is a very strict man, strong morales and work ethic. He now works as a park ranger in one of the national parks of New Zealand. He stayed at home during the first 6 years of Minnie’s life, being a fundamental part in her education and early development. He still is the person who takes most control of her education. When Minnie didn't achieve prefect he was very disappointed in her, all of the work that he and her mother had put into it had felt wasted since she hadn't got it. He still has high hopes for his daughter but is very short with her now and is in the middle of Minnie and her mother. He's not entirely sure having another child would help it. But he'll go along with it if that's what his wife wants.
Muggleborn witch, she attended Hogwarts Scotland, Ravenclaw. Her parents were property developers who worked out of New Zealand, having moved to the country when they first setting up the company able to find a good piece of development. They weren’t keen to send their child far away, but knew she had to excel in school wherever suited her best and they’d learned that Hogwarts was the best school to send her to. Between the work she was doing at Hogwarts, especially in the breaks, she was made to continue her muggle subjects, achieving perfect grades in both, spending a year after graduating hogwarts catching up in her muggle grades. She attended Cambridge university where she met her future husband. They had a long distance relationship for the first ten years of their relationship, he was doing his thing and she was working in New Zealand taking over from her parents. She grew the company, expanding into magical property. She works exceedingly hard for everything she’s ever gotten. When her daughter didn't manage to gain the position of prefect she was exceedingly disappointed in her and after an agrument stopped talking to her daughter entirely. Since then she has been looking into how possible it would be to try to have another child or to adopt.
Minnie is an only child. She has never really wanted any siblings either. In her schedule there would be no time for her to spend with the sibling and could imagine that they too would have no time either. She is quite satisfied with the current set up of her family, and would do little to change it.
All of her grandparents are alive.
Her mother had no siblings, her father has two older brothers.
RELATIONSHIP TO FAMILY
Minnie has a complicated relationship with her family. She is exceedingly close to both of her parents. Her father spent a lot of time in her early years being there with her for most of the day. She is very close to him, they’ve always had a very personal relationship. She is also close with her mother, a little less close than she is with her father, but still very close. They’ve always been a very close knit family. With only three of them, it’s just always been that way. Minnie has some problems with her parents in that they control a lot of her life. Keep her to a tight timetable, and ensure she barely has any real time for herself - though that time she does have is still usually spent reading or working. So in recent years she’s acted out a little against her parents. She’ll always listen to what they have to say in the end, but she’ll argue about it on occasion, put up a rather loud and large fight, but will always eventually do what they say. This has put a bit of a strain on the relationship between her and her parents as they come up against a forming Minnie who is more vocal and increasingly more combative against their wishes. She’d never do anything to harm them, or hurt their feelings and she is always first in the family to apologise, but she is growing into a person who despite loving her parents dearly would like for the family to be a little less close and for her parents to control a little less. As Minnie has grown up, and gone to magic school, the relationship with her parents has become very strained. Minnie has pursued things like quidditch more than her parents wanted her, she's argued against the schedule they've set and voiced her frustrations a lot about the way they want her to do all of the classes, and the way that they've treated people she talks about. Minnie feels the weight of her parents pressure and there is little relief from it, it is something with clouds every decision and movement. She receives very little praise from her parents, who make her feel like she just isn't perfect enough, isn't doing enough. Minnie is always trying to balance the love and respect she has for her parents with the near crushing pressure they have for her. She feels more and more recently that the love they give her is conditional, if she does perfectly in everything she's worthy of their love and if she doesn't then she's not. More often than not, they make her feel like she hasn't earned it, but Minnie doesn't know what else she can do to receive it. Her entirely family relationship broke down when Minnie went into her fifth year and was not made a prefect. Her mother stopped talking to her, entirely shutting her out. Actively ignoring her. Her father has been more there but not exactly speaking to her and being very distant with her. To minnie it feels like they've just pulled all of their love away from her and she needs to earn it back, so she's keen to work super hard at everything to get it back. Part of her knows it'll be near impossible, but it's her family and she'll do what she has to to try.
The family has one owl, it is a snowy owl that Minnie’s mother got when she was in her last year of school and has remained the family owl ever since. It is most friendly with Minnie’s mother, but good to all of the people in the family. It is an old owl now, but still more than capable of doing jobs, which is it’s only purpose in the family. It is not necessarily a pet, though by the definition of a pet it is. Minnie has always used school owls to send the letters home, despite it being clear that her parents want regular updates on whats happening in school, and not for a lack of money, they’ve never gotten her an owl, or given her the family owl. Minnie isn’t entirely sure why, they never were sending that many letters while at home, but she just uses school ones whenever she has to send letters. Minnie has always likely owls and hoped that she would get one of her own, but it’s never happened.
Minnie is half blood, her mother is a muggleborn witch and her father is a muggle.
THOUGHTS ON BLOOD STATUS
Minnie has never been concerned with blood status, she has to work hard for everything, even if her parents have a good amount of wealth and status, she will need to work for her own. So, this extends to how Minnie feels about blood status, you can’t work for it, you can’t change it, so it doesn’t matter, what matters in life is how well you do, what position you end up in, how hard you’ve worked for something. She believes in working hard to achieve goals.

THE PLACE TO LIVE
There’s a little park next to her house, no more than a five minute walk from where she lives, and it’s the best park. Whenever she can and has the time to go, Minnie will go. This does not happen often, she doesn’t usually have the time to go to the park, with so much else to do but when she does, she loves it. It’s usually filled with other kids and though she doesn’t always play with them, she still enjoys spending time at the park. She likes reading in the park, and going on the swings. She likes the ones that spin around. It’s just a nice place for her to go, and a little different from the day to day stuff of being at home. Studying in the house rather than being outside.
Minnie has lived in the same house all of her life. It is a medium sized home with three bedrooms and split over two floors. The third bedroom is used primarily as a work space for Minnie and her father, where she would do the extra work her father asked of her. Minnie’s bedroom is modestly size and modestly decorated, she’s never been allowed to put things on the wall, or change major aspects of the room without asking for permission. Other than that the house as grand enough hallway, a large living area and adjoining dinning area, a kitchen and a conservatory. It has a large back garden, which is protected by magic and is a space in which Minnie learnt how to fly. The living room is well spaced, again, tastely decorated and the dinning room is kept grander. The kitchen is slightly smaller than either of her parents wanted but it is a good size for their family. Minnie likes the kitchen, it get a lot of natural light and has always been a good place to study for her. The garden is a little wasted on her, since other than using it for physical exercise Minnie has never really one to “play”. It is a very well kept house, always tidied to the highest degree and kept in a manner as her father would say that they’d be pleased to welcome the pope to dinner in it.
Growing up in a relatively religious household, as well as just a strict household, Minnie thinks of herself as heterosexual but she hasn’t had too many experiences with people yet that would lead her to think otherwise. She is quite open to other orientations, but has not herself had much interaction with it, to know what a lot are or what any of it really means.
CURRENT RELATIONSHIP STATUS
Single - Following not getting the prefect position she decided she needed to focus on her studies and so she broke up with her boyfriend in the September of 2052 and is from that moment single. She doesn't believe that she will have time for any relationship and so is not looking for anyone and also isn't using this as an occasion to "work on herself" but more that she does not have time to be looking for anyone new and doesn't have time to dedicate to it. She also doesn't really want a new relationship because it would be a distraction to what she needs to be doing.
CRUSHES PAST AND PRESENT
Minnie shared her first kiss with Noel Waldgrave in her fourth. year of school. She was invited to attend the yuleball with him, and after sharing a dance, and a little drink she kissed him on the lips. It was a rather nice kiss, Minnie enjoyed it. And she was happy to share this first kiss with him rather than with anyone else. Thread
FIRST FRENCH KISSHer first french kiss was with Noel Waldgrave in her fourth year of school. She attended the Valentines feast with him, and they shared a more deep kiss than they had in the past.
Minnie started dating Noel Waldgrave, a then fourth year gryffindor during the yuleball of her fourth year. They had been friends for a couple of years, or well, going from tentative acquaintances to friends, and have crossed this threshold into being together. She liked him enough, thinks that Noel is a respectable person, he gets good grades and is relatively well behaved. He comes from a good family and he is someone that her parents have given a little approval for. They started dating during the break between semesters in 2051 (Y36). This was Minnie's first relationship. They broke up in September of 2052 (Y37) after she didn't get the prefect position and decided to focus on her studies. She was deeply upset about the break up, more so than she thought she would be about it. She'd come to really care about Noel, more so than him just being he right sort of person for her to date. In the argument she had with her parents after not getting prefect she disliked how harsh they were about him. But she did agree that he was a distraction and she couldn't stay with him.

I love it when we hang out ,
In your tree house after dark
Minnie has long black hair, she has always had it sit long, stretching down to her chest. It stays very straight and she does a lot to maintain it. Her parents have always been the ones to organise her hair cuts and have always decided what kind of style it would need to sit in. She has never minded the way that her hair looks, it’s long, black and when left alone can be naturally wavy. She likes having her hair be quite natural, but her parents are very insistent on presenting a certain image, thus she keeps her hair in the same style every day. She’ll have it up, in a loose bun or ponytail, but largely it remains down, sitting over her shoulders, having been straightened that morning. She likes her hair a lot, spends a lot of time taking care of it, ensuring that she’s using the right products for it. She’ll always keep it up and out of the way when she has sports or is studying. She doesn’t like when it falls into her face when she’s concentrating.
HAIR HAS BEEN DYED
Minnie has never dyed her hair, nor is ever likely to. It is strictly forbidden in her household. She’s too young for it, and she wouldn’t be allowed to do anything more than keep her current colour. She can also agree that for Minnie to change her hair, given how dark it is it would be quite dark. She’d however be inclined for the option when she was older, and the only thing stopping her would be what her parents think about it. Her father is very critical of people with varying hair colour, anything out of the norm, and would be strictly against Minnie having anything of the sort. She would tend to agree with her father on most things, but she doesn’t agree that it’s always bad, sometimes spotting older people teenagers and adults with odd hair colours that look really really nice. She doesn’t think however, that she’d ever be brave enough to go up against her father and change her hair colour.
Minnie has brown eyes, they are the same as her father’s eye colour. Something she specifically gets from him. It’s the most noticeable similarity between the two of them, largely because Minnie takes far more after her mother. She doesn’t mind her eye colour, though, much like her parents she’s always been keen to present a good image to people, presenting a good and clear appearance, she has never really mind about her eyes and how they looked. She cares abbout her appearance but knows that if she can’t back it up with more it’s pointless. She likes her eyes but it isn’t a major factor in her life. She likes the fact that they are just like her father’s. She’s always been close with her father and wanted to be more like him for a large chunk of her early life, so having this clear connection is good to her.
Minnie has no noticeably scars or birthmarks, she has maybe a few freckles but none that are noticeable either. She has always been very active as a child, involved in a lot of sports, but with her mother’s magic, none of the cuts she’s gotten over the years have ever scarred. Something she is quite thankful for.
Minnie has always led a very active lifestyle, between her sports in school and her father insistence that she be healthy and active, she has a slim body. She’s a little smaller than most people her age, but this has never bothered her. She’s always been described as petite. Something she definitely has never minded. She likes her build, and likes the way that she looks. She’s always been a big fan of sports, she might prefer books but she’ll lean into sports too when she needs too, understanding the importance of having both in her life.
With her mother being magical it’s never been necessary for them to worry about whether or not she knows her blood type - potions work better than anything else, but given that they live in a largely muggle community and had always known that Minnie would attend muggle school, they had decided it would be very important for her to know her own blood type. She’s never had to use it, Minnie has never been active enough to ever merit getting hurt enough to need a blood transfusion the muggle way. But it is just something that she knows..
She has only ever written with her right hand. She isn’t keen on writing with both hands and doesn’t believe it any help for her to learn. She has enough to do right now, that it would not benefit her in the slightest to also be able to write with her other hand. So she never bothered to learn. Her father has always been pretty old school in certain manners and did joke around with Minnie when she was older about how if she had been left handed they’d have taught her to write with her right hand instead. So she is right handed and thankfully so..
Minnie has mostly a Kiwi accent with a little english mixed in, given that her mother was raised in NZ and her father was raised in the UK, it makes sense that while she has mostly a kiwi accent there’s a little hint ever so often of the english from her father that can escape. She likes the way her accent sounds and likes sounding like her mother more than her father. Minnie speaks very politely, she’s not the wort to use slang or say things in a way that wasn’t polite. She just wouldn’t have been allowed to growing up and therefore any that have entire her vocabulary have quickly be chased back out. Her accent is reflective of the more prim and proper manner in which she aims to speak.
Minnie can speak fluent english - having been raised in an english speaking country, but she is also fluent in spanish, since both of her parents speak it and they wanted her to be able to speak two languages she speaks both english and spanish. Her father really took charge of her education before school and during school and often made Minnie do assignments in both english and spanish. Expecting her to be well versed and capable of doing anything in both languages. She likes being able to speak two languages, she learned some other bits and pieces of languages in school, but loves being able to speak two fluently, since they never really learned those languages in school that much.
Minnie has no known allergies
Since her mother picks out all of her clothes, Minnie has a style that is not her own. She dresses politely and conservatively. Not something she minds, she likes dressing nice, likes putting on nice clothes, wearing little heels with skirts. She would like to expand into other styles, particularly she doesn’t wear a lot of casual clothes and would very much enjoy trying to dress a little more casually. She knows that it’s important to dress well, since it will affect how people see you. She’s been taught to take enough pride in her appearance to actually care about it enough to do something about it. She’ll always do her best to dress well with the clothes that she has, but her parents play a rather large influence on how she dresses.

Minnie likes sports, she’s always been very active and thus has largely fallen in love with sports. She loves the feeling after doing anything active, where she just feels really really good. She also really likes school and education. Her parents have her doing more classes and subjects even after school, and this started when she was very young, so she’s grown up with education and succeeding in school being such a huge part of her life that she loves learning and reading. She’s very intelligent, very keen and eager to pick up anything and read it. She likes learning pretty much anything, and will give anything a go. She loves reading in general, it doesn’t really matter what it is, she just likes reading a lot. Her favourite thing to read - which she keeps a bit secret from her parents because they certainly wouldn’t approve are teen romance novels. She just really enjoys all of those books. They aren’t the sort of books that have great moral dilemmas or any great meaning, they’re books meant to be enjoyed and minnie certainly enjoys them.
Minnie has never really had any friends in school. She’s not often allowed to any of the events that other kids have, and in the recent years they’ve stopped inviting her to things, this is a very big annoynace to her. She understands why, her parents would never let her go to anything, anyone she has gotten friendly with is then vetoed by her parents as somone Minnie could be friends with and finds their own friends. She hates not being even asked to go do things with others. Even if the answer will always be no she thinks that it’s just cruel to not even ask. Especially when she’s likely to still hear about it. She doesn’t like when people aren’t patient with one another, she knows that people learn at their own pace and so to ask others to speed up or to get frustrated when someone isn’t going at the pace they want she finds pointless and unnecessary. She doesn’t like having to get up early. Her days at home tend to start early around five thirty in the morning, which as she’s gotten older has gotten increasingly more difficult. She’s never had a proper lie in, only when she’s very unwell will she get to sleep more but she’ll still get woken up first thing to eat something and to shower.
Minnie’s goals have changed from when she was first at the school. To begin with, she had always had the goal of doing well in school, in all her subjects and do right by her parents in each of the classes given how much work they had put into her education pre-Hogwarts. She had also had the goal of working with her mother, of achieving so highly that she would work with her. Worthy of working with her, and her last goal had been to write a book. These goals have changed, she wants to do well in her subjects and that is still very much a goal but it is also just something he can’t not do at this point. She needs to do right by her parents because she worries about what their reaction would be if she didn’t. Minnie still wants to write a book, if anything that is her biggest goal in life, once she’s done everything else she needs to, she will in her mind write the book she wants, she will do the thing that she wants. It is no longer a goal of hers to work with her mother, Minnie questions wether she’d ever be good enough and doesn’t in part want to have to work herself t the bone for it. She knows that she will have to do it, but it is no longer a goal of hers. If it didn’t happen she’d be happier. If their family lost all the money and her mother no longer had that job Minnie would be happier than she would be if she had to work with her mother. A last a new goal that Minnie has is that she just wants to be happy. She has only brief encounters with happiness currently, and she just wants to be happy, like no strings attached, no worries happy. .
If Minnie had faced a boggart when first arriving at school she would’ve seen either or both of her parents dead. But this much like many things in her life has changed. When she faced a boggart in her third year of school it showed her instead of her parents dying, her failing. She failed or did poorly on something and it was her parents frustration and disappointment which had terrified her. She had thought herself silly, where others had seen mundane normal things, a bad grade had been what she feared the most, and really this fear has only gotten worse. She doesn’t want it to be so, but she’ll do things over and over until they are perfect. She fears not doing well enough in a wider sense, like not getting good reports from teachers. Not doing well enough with her few friends, letting down the people she cares about, about quidditch and about not getting the things her parents expect. She’s just terrified of not being perfect.
The day she got her hogwarts letter. Though this was likely something to happen, given the fact that her mother is magical and she’d been showing the signed of magic from seven she couldn’t wait for the letter and the joy she felt at finally getting it was immense. She knew that it was coming at a good time, when she would be able to go to a new school and use that time to grow and explore different things without her parents hanging over her, watching and deciding every move she would make. Minnie knows that they’ll probably still try to influence a whole bunch in her life, but at the very least this would still give her quite a bit of freedom from them. So, getting the letter was the confirmation of the future that she was likely to have.
Minnie’s life has had some difficulty, usually when she doesn’t want to do something her parents want her too. They’ve always both been very strict with her, and she was very unwell for about a week with a pretty bad flu, and on the first worst day of it, after she’d expressed to her parents that she hadn’t been feeling good the night before she was forced to still do a full day of school, clubs and after school lessons. By the end of the day Minnie was so unwell she could barely move, and was laid up mostly in bed for a whole week after. She had certainly pushed herself too much, and she just felt awful for the entire time. It was the worst day she’d ever experienced even if for most it wasn’t too bad compared with them.
Deep down, Minnie really resents her parents and the way that she was raised. The tight schedule that her parents keep her on gives her very little time to do anything that she wants. It has prevented her from making and keeping friends, no matter how hard she’s tried. She resents how early her days can start and how tired she can feel after so many hours of being awake and active. She resents that there’s little time for just herself and how she feels this desire to do as they say, to follow all of their instructions that she feels like if she doesn’t do well enough they won’t care about her as much. Minnie more than anything deeply hates and resents the way the love her parents give her is conditional. She hates that it causes her to stress about exams, about grades about whether she’s wearing the right clothes. She just resents them. Minnie would never say it, she knows how much they do value her, and how much work they put into her, that she’s their only daughter so of course she’s like this. But she feels its, deeply.
MIRROR OF ERISED
Minnie would see herself happy and loved, simply put, she’d be able to tell that she wasn’t stressed out by something or another. She could tell that she was just relaxed. She’d note the fact that she had friends, and there would be some of people she’s got in her life right now, but the fact they were friends would be just so clear. There would an outpouring of platonic but unconditional love. She would see her grades, they’d be perfect and she’d be able to be proud of them without worrying that they weren’t the sort of perfect that her parents wanted for her. She would see the book she wants to write beside the grades, pointedly absent would be her parents, she loves her parents more than they love her in her mind, but they’ve never brought her anything than misery and she selfishly believes that she might be happier without them around her, so the mirror would certainly reflect that given that really the only desire in all of this is to be happy and loved.
Minnie loves the smell of books, old books, new books. Magazines, old paperbacks, magical, muggle. She just loves books it is the single best smell to her. It’s the only thing she would smell.
I LOOK UP TO
Minnie has always looked up to her teachers and professors. She’s always had an inane respect for people who hold positions of authority, but given that these are also people who teach the youth, passing on knowledge to people younger than them, she has a lot of respect for the professor able to control a class of students and feels like that is a very honorable profession that she wouldn’t mind ending up in. She will always follow the authority of a professor, do as she is told by professors. She might not always agree with it and be vocal about her disagreement but she would still always do it.
Catholic - Minnie has been raised in a relatively religious household. She attends church nearly every sunday. She doesn’t particularly believe in god, since with the magic she has, she can’t be certain of a higher power. She’s open to the idea which it presents to her, but for a while she’s believed less and less in it. Minnie goes because her parents are relatively religious and since they are a part of the local community, it’s always been important for them to attend church. She understands the importance of presenting a certain image and so goes along still because she understands this. Her parents would make her go anyway, but at the very least she understands why.
Aries are fire signs and those born under this element are regarded in astrology as adventurous, active and outgoing. It won’t matter where you go or how remote or unusual it is – from the Outback to the Antarctic – you can be sure that an Aries has been there before you (or at the very least you will meet one along the way!). Aries is a uniquely naive sign. Although they are independent, outgoing and assertive they are also surprisingly trusting, often innocently walking into the lion’s den at times. No matter what upheaval, challenge or triumph they confront – an Aries has a wonderful ability to bounce back. Their faith in life and the future remains untouched by hardship. Their gift is that they are always children at heart and the world is always a magical place for them. Many famous sports people are born under this sign. Aries is regarded as the most physical sign and because of its Mar’s rulership; it is also one of the most highly charged masculine energy signs in astrology. No wonder women born under Aries are forceful, dynamic and aggressive, and as a result, these Aries women frequently find themselves with dilemmas surrounding their romantic relationships. For them, a man has to be a ‘real man’ to deal with an Aries woman, otherwise, she intimidates him. And conversely, for the Aries male, a woman has to be a real woman to deal with him, because he is looking for many balancing component traits (his true feminine side) in his partner. She has to run the gamut in his support system, from the Aries man’s best friend, true companion, through to his muse, and yet she must never ever answer him back! Therefore Aries can be a confusing sign because there is a complex combination of very strong masculine and feminine expressions all combined together. Because of the male energy surrounding it, when a woman is born under Aries, it creates some of the most interesting women in the world, women who are adventurous, independent and have competitive natures. It also tends to make them very forthright.
