Although, difficulties can arise for them when they become impatient, too aggressive, or even angry. When tension builds, techniques to reduce stress would be useful.

Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

Aries is a cardinal sign because it kicks off spring; the first solar season. Its constellation occupies the primary 30° of celestial longitude of the zodiac. This is known as a sign of action, energy, enthusiasm, and projection towards the future. These natives are endowed with blind boldness that pushes them forward. 

What are the qualities of Aries?: These people are authentic and sincere

You are a passionate person, and this passion drives you to give the best of yourself in all situations. You are also very enthusiastic. Furthermore, you do not hesitate to spread this joy for life to those around you, and are often the motor behind other people.

You are genuine, you are very sincere with your entourage, and they know that they can ask your opinion in all transparency. Likewise, you always answer according to the feelings you feel, and this quality allows you to be in total agreement with yourself. In addition, you like to put plans in place, and you are a real powerhouse. Every action is guided by your heart because you are a spontaneous person, with you, reason has no place...

You know how to let your hair down, and you don't think about the consequences. For you, living in the moment is more important than anything else. This vision pushes you to be often intrepid and in the face of danger, you never back down. Adventure motivates you daily, and each obstacle is a new way to grow and to show your determination.Aries quote

You never let yourself be discouraged because you know how to adapt to every situation. You can then easily appropriate things to make them intelligible, and this quality makes your projects easier when you have to deal with new things.

'The three most important things for this sign are trust, loyalty and respect.'

What are Aries' negative traits?: They have way too much energy!

Your overflowing energy can quickly tire your loved ones, to the point where they frequently say that you are hard to keep up with.   Because of this dynamism, you constantly seize the opportunities available to you, for fear of getting bored. Although, you'll need to learn to plan your tasks if you don't want to lose your footing.

Making things last can also make them interesting, and moving too fast can lead you to make questionable choices. Instead, take the time to analyze all the possibilities to choose the best solution. Your passion blinds you, and you tend to forget what's around you, yet in fact, reason can be an excellent ally in the most difficult decisions. It doesn't only have negative sides!

Since you are always on the move, you feel like everything rests on your shoulders. You ought to try to let go if you want to give those around you some freedom. Moreover, your frankness can quickly pass for arrogance with some people. Try to think things through when talking to people you know are sensitive, if not, you could hurt their feelings. In short, if you want to achieve your full potential, you need to learn to channel all your energy and to be a little more considerate of those around you.

What does it mean to have Aries as your rising sign?

To have Aries rising sign in your natal chart is lucky and means you go beyond your limits in order to move forward. Very often people marked by this ascendant are feisty, impulsive, determined and have several hobbies. In short, this ascendant makes folks hyperactive!

No problems with most of the well known Aries female traits save one: the need to 'test' someone in whom they might be interested. That's pretty arrogant and entitled, not exactly a sign of maturity. What is the point of trying to start a relationship with someone who's convinced it's her right to test and judge you? Is this really someone I want to know and associate with? I don't feel I have the right to pass judgement on others for any reason. Someone who IS OK with this may turn out to be more aggravation, frustration, and jail time than is worth it. Get a grip Sam, and grow up.

Agree with the compatibility chart!!
