Friends give us a sense of community—they're a source of fun, hope, conversation, advice, comfort, and a valuable reflection of who we are. If you are friends with an Aries, here are five things you need to know.

1. Aries have a very playful and childlike spirit

Aries are the beginning of the astrological calendar, and so they're considered the babies of the zodiac. Being born at spring when life is renewing itself, Aries often have a naïve aspect to their personality, no matter how old or wise they are. The childlike disposition of Aries never goes away and can show up at anytime. They stay fresh.

2. Aries is a fire sign and can be hot headed

It's not uncommon for an Aries to have a hot temper. This is because they are passionate—there's a lot of fire and energy within them. These qualities can make them seem confrontational, but in fact, Aries are not on the offensive. They simply like to debate because it's fun for them.

3. Aries need to move their bodies

If your Aries friend tends to pick fights or have steam to let off, it's likely they just need a good workout. If Aries don't engage in high activity workouts their energy can be very punchy and nearly unbearable for those around them. Aries must exercise often, and my advice is to suggest a strenuous hike in lieu of getting coffee.

4. Aries will fight for you

While Aries' tendency to come out swinging may be difficult for your friendship, they're passion is a gift when it comes to supporting their friends. Aries are great strategists and will go to great lengths to ensure that you win. You'll be glad to have Aries on your team when the chips are down.

5. Time alone

The call of the Aries' soul is to learn how to take care of herself, first and foremost. With this in mind, be sure to support your Aries friend in having time alone or time to do exactly what she wants and needs. When an Aries has seen to her needs, she will feel good and be a better friend.
