Aries Constellation Myth
Aries, the Ram. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, marking the beginning of the astrological year and representing those born between March 21 and April 19.
The Zodiac sign of Aries includes two stones: the bloodstone (heliotrope) and the diamond.
First things first, when referring to the mythology of Aries, it is important to note that there are two distinctions to make. Myths about “Aries, the Ram” are different from myths about “Aries, the Greek god” (whose name is more often spelled “Ares”).
In Greek mythology, Ares is the god of war. It is important to make a distinction between the role that Ares (Greek mythology) plays and the role that his sister Athena (Greek mythology) plays. Athena was also a god (goddess) of war, but unlike Ares, Athena was strategic and disciplined, where Ares was chaotic and destructive.

Everything starts when king Athamas of Boeotia married the nymph Nephele at Hera’s command. She was a nymph made from a white diamond cloud in Hera’s image to trap the centaur, Ixion. The couple had two children; a son named Phrixus and a daughter named Helle, as children they were innocents, white souls like a white diamond.
After a while, Athamas grew tired of Nephele and left her.
Athamas then remarried, and his second wife was Ino, the daughter of Cadmus. She also gave him children, two sons named Learches and Melicertes as the other two children they were innocents and there were made of Aries Constellation stone diamonds. But For Nephele they were the representation of betrayal and her anger start to grow red as blood like the red blood drops in the stone heliotrope, she was jealous of Athamas and Nephele’s children and plotted their deaths, and asked Hera to assist her in this plot.
Ino felt Nephele’s intentions and in return, she grows inside her the same anger as Nephele red as the droops in the stone heliotrope, red as the blood; and tricked Athamas into attempting to sacrifice Phrixus and Helle. Prixus was saved by Heracles who sent a golden Ram to carry him to Colchis, Helle grabbed the winged Ram, but fell to her death between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea when she lost her hold. The strait to this day is named after her “The Hellespont” (Dardanelles). Upon reaching Colchis Phrixus sacrificed the golden ram to Zeus, who in turn placed the ram’s image among the stars in honor of its heroism and his sister.
Aries is a sun sign and traits of those born under the sign include leadership and assertiveness two necessary characteristics for taking the right decision in critical moments, holding the pressure as a diamond does when is created, and returning the red blood drops of the heliotrope in stars.
(Ares myths are essentially the same as the myths of Mars from Roman mythology, who is most often considered to be the same god).
