Aries - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Aries - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
Today’s sign is Aries! This is part of a set of illustrations I did for Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar, which I am posting daily :)

Aries: March 21 to April 20. Cardinal Fire sign. Assertive, dominant, impulsive, adventurous, tend to be leaders. Dominant colors: Red, red, and more red. The sign is also associated with new beginnings (as Aries is the official beginning of the astrological calendar), fire, energy, athleticism, pioneering, leadership, stubbornness and a need to have their own way. Here, Aries is climbing up/down a volcano in an ‘idgaf’ sort of way.

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

This is so cool. The fluidity of the piece is enviable. You do such a good job manipulating colors and textures to give it a realistic feel. Well done.

Even through the looks of a person are not often specified by the Sun position, as far as I know this is how Aries men usually look like. Awesome job! :wow:

Actually Sun sign does influence the look of an individual. Ascendant plays more of a major role, but have you not noticed that people born around the same time look very similar. This is because they are born in the same season. Your Sun sign reflects the seasons especially if you believe in Tropical Astrology.

I can't agree, cos I'm an Aries born in a first decade, my ascendent is Libra and my Moon is in Libra (the opposites), my body build is like Taurus so nobody will ever guess I'm an Aries. On the other side my mom is also Aries, but born in the last decade and her ascendent is also Aries, but her body build is that of an Aries. The major difference, except the age (that means all the major planets like Pluto, Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter are in different signs), is our Venus position. Mine is in Taurus and her's in Aries. :D And about facial features it's ether the Mars position (especially if it's exalted Mars - Capricorn) or the First House sign. :)
I think that Sun position describes the ego of an individual.
And the thing that some of the people that are born around the same season looks similar might be cos the Sun and the Venus are always close to each other in the Natal. :)

Well, I should say that Asc for me is two-thirds of our look, the Sun is like one-third. Seasons are affiliated with the climate, which does affect our physical look. Just as an animal born in a colder climate has certain features such as white fur and narrow eyes, same goes for humans who would be formed according to their climate.
Added I have noticed in most of the Sun in Aries women that no matter their Asc, many of them have masculine features. My best friend has Taurus Asc just like you and Sun in Aries. Although I will admit she is on the heavy side, she has very narrow features that make her look more masculine. Same goes for Mariah Carey who happens to have Taurus Asc. Although she has a very voluptuous body, there are some distinct masculine features in her face and body, such as broad shoulders. This is why she was able to pull of looking like a man in her video Obsessed. Added most Sun in Aries people tend to look a lot like Rams in the face such as Lady Gaga, Jill Scott, and Mariah Carey. And I have yer to meet a Sun in Aries who has a small head. So I do believe the Sun Sign affects the features of an individual. To me Astrotheme.com described it best. Its best to take both into consideration. And Venus for personal style.

I'm sorry I didn't mean like you. You said you were Libra Asc. I misreadm its late lol. :P But my friend is Taurus Asc. And I also have the opposite Asc of my Sun sign (I'm scorpio Asc, Sun in Taurus). I am very slender, but there are very feminine features that people have seen in me, such as a distinct neck and round doe eyes that most Sun in Taurus people carry. I also have thin soft lips and fair skin, all characteristics of Taurus. :)

Hmm, an interesting rendition of Aries, yet for me personally its not characteristic of Aries. The body pose is a bit feminine, and his face is a bit too... clean-shaved. Ultimately Aries is one of the best representations of Mars - its the zodiac sign of dynamics, raw power, everything rough really. So Aries should have a rougher, manlier face, a stern and ambitious look, and a powerful and stoic pose of body. Plus, he should technically be hairy. Most of the things you would consider "manly" actually strongly resonate with the powerful yang energy of Aries. Apart from that, I would consider this an amazing non-traditional representation of Aries. Can't wait to see the rest!

I don't think there's a "should" with these; technically Aquarius "should" have been male and Capricorn "should" have been a sea-goat. Aries isn't just about body hair and war and Mars - Aries is also represented by new spring growth, by kilns and forges, by poppies, mountains, diamonds, a stubborn drive to accomplish goals, youthfulness and intelligence - a broad range of things, just like every other sign. I actually started out depicting Aries as a female blacksmith (kind of wish I'd kept it that way, but I'd seen some fantastic ref photos of male aerial acrobats I wanted to work with). I decided to go with an athletic, confident, and youthful man starting out on a journey through fire with a reckless energy, which is an interpretation that still fits with much of what Aries represents. The only thing I regret is I wasn't able to get the fresh spring plant growth into the image in a way that made sense. I did my research, and I stand by my results, and I'm sorry if the way he looks makes you uncomfortable. I think he looks a badass, even if he isn't hairy and and gruff and stoic. :)

Yeah, I get your point, and I guess it is in character. By the way I really like your female Aries smith idea. Oh, and he doesn't make me feel uncomfortable, its just not what I expected :p He is good, and badass, just not my type :p I do love all the rest that you have posted so far, however. Especially Aquarius and Capricorn <3

I can't wait to see what you do with Aquarius, because as an Aquariuan, I tend to be quite disappointed in most illustrations of Aquarius. I am not a serene person holding a jug of water. PLEASE DO SOMETHING AWESOME LIKE THIS (becauseifyoudoIwillloveyouforeverandeverandever.)

I think I'll just stare at this for now, if you don't mind.
