Aries is the first sign of the zodiac wheel, and people born between 21st March and 19th April fall under this sun sign. This sun sign occurs at the time of the spring equinox, when both daylight and night are of equal duration. The 'ram' represents this sign in the zodiac wheel. The 'ram' in the Greek mythology is associated with the ram of the golden fleece, who is said to have carried the son and daughter of Athamus to Colchis, so that they could escape their step mother. The 'ram' also represents Ares, the God of War of the Greeks, and Mars, the Roman equivalent. The most common characteristics associated with the ram are leadership, wisdom, strength, and courage. Hence, it is very clear as to why the ram was chosen as the 'mascot' for this sun sign. There are a number of tattoo designs and variations, in which, an Arian ram can be used.
