Sign Combinations: Sun in Aries and Aries Ascendant
Two people with the same Sun sign will share some similar traits. However, not all Aries Sun individuals present the same way, and that’s where their Ascendant sign (or Rising sign) comes into play.
The Sun sign is also modified by the Sun’s aspects and house position, and a full interpretation of a person’s natal chart can be illuminating. However, Sun-Ascendant combinations can reveal interesting differences (and similarities) between people born under the same Sun.

What does it mean to have the Sun in Aries AND an Aries Ascendant?
Sun in Aries – Aries Ascendant Combination
Appearances do not deceive with those who have an Aries Sun and Aries Ascendant combination. They are just as strong willed, enthusiastic, and assertive when you meet them as they are in their everyday lives. They have an air of independence and ambitiousness that is backed up by a very real desire to pave their own way in life, lead, and carve out a space for themselves by the sheer force of their will.
An Aries Ascendant can sometimes have a slightly harsh, assertive edge to their interactions with new people. They come across confident, direct, and honest, and those traits are very authentic to who they are. They may even come across impatient because they want to get to the point, leading them to almost seem like they are in a rush at any given moment.
They embody confidence and optimism in their own abilities, and that energy inspires others to be confident in them as well. They can come across as “lone wolves” because they desire for others to see them as self-sufficient, as their independence and ability to succeed on their own merits is a core part of their personality. Their integrity in first impressions is also very important to them. They do not want to play games or put on a facade as they highly value honesty and do not feel comfortable putting on an image that they find to be inauthentic.
A person with an Aries Sun and Aries Ascendant combination is dripping with enthusiasm and energy, and their excitement for life can be contagious. However, that energy can extend in the opposite direction, as those with a strong Aries presence can have their mood affect a whole room with the intensity of their emotions, as they are not the type to keep their moods to themselves. What you see is what you get with an Aries Sun and Aries Ascendant combination, as they are as straightforward as they appear.
They are quite impulsive and the types to always have something new going on. They will talk passionately about the various projects they have taken on and ideas they have for the future. With their desire to lead also comes the desire to be an opinion leader- they are always discovering new interests, hobbies, and pieces of media that they are excited to tell others about. They will be the first people to offer you recommendations and be up-to-date with the latest and greatest.
The Aries Sun and Aries Ascendant combination is one of a fighting spirit who is and comes across as an energetic, confident, and self-sufficient pioneer for their future and who is always up for a new challenge.

You will find some, many, or all of the following, depending on how the natal chart is configured:

Some Aries rising people are competitive, but they generally put most of the pressure on themselves. These people love to come out ahead in all that they do.
