is one of the constellations of the zodiac, the ram. It lies
between Pisces to the west and Taurus to the east. In Greek
mythology, this is believed to represent the ram who carried
Athamas's son Phrixus and daughter Helle to Colchis to escape
their stepmother Ino. Helle fell off into the sea which later
became the Hellespont. On reaching safety, Phrixis (rather
ungratefully) sacrificed the ram and hung its fleece in the
Grove of Ares, where it turned to gold and later became the
quest of Jason and the Argonauts.
astrological sign Aries (March 21 - April 19) is associated
with the constellation. In some cosmologies, Aries is associated
with the classical element Fire, and thus called a fire sign
(with Sagittarius and Leo). Its polar opposite is Libra.
Aries represents the first stage in the evolutionary process
of the zodiac: birth.
