ARIES

Phrixos and his sister Helle had fallen victim to a plot by their stepmother. Zeus came to their rescue by sending a flying ram to carry them to the sky. Unfortunately, Helle fell into the sea and died during her escape. The flying ram was later brought to the sky as the constellation Aries. Mars is the planetary ruler of Aries. An Aries is adventurous, full of energy and vigour.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNA and Thank you for the stamps :-)
