Phrixus, son of Nepele, falsely accused of ravishing Biadice, was condemned to death, but rescued by a golden ram, on whose back he escaped with his sister Helle. She became giddy and fell off; but Phrixus reached safety, and sacrificed the ram to Zeus, who placed its likeness in the heavens. Years later the ram's fleece became famous, when Jason captured it.

Positive Characteristic Traits
Aries rising is both positive and dynamic. It endows you with a go-getting, achievement-oriented personality, for you like to be in charge and want to make a big impression under all circumstances. Dedicated to satisfying personal ambitions and pursuing your own ends with complete disregard for the feelings of others doesn't necessarily mean you are always selfish, my dear, but in your haste and eagerness to reach that goal or accomplish that oh so important purpose, it is so easy for you to forget other people's needs, or that what you do may react adversely on others. A powerful inner drive and a strong need for accomplishment, combined with your indomitable Aries courage, urges you to go for things others might think are too risky, too foolish, or just too much work.
Fevers, eye strain, accidental injury to the head, skin rashes, overwork, migraine headaches, and insect bites are your most likely physical complaints. Your extremism leads to mental and emotional instability in some situations and you get distinctly stressed out by being thwarted in the pursuit of your goals.
Adventure, opportunities to find out, to try things, take charge, solve problems, and to be a winner. Above all, young Aries needs to know that he or she is loved and valued.

You have a charming
manner and very winning ways with the opposite sex, when you so choose. Despite
your charm, you often find that some unforeseen problem seems to emerge that
prevents you from obtaining the object of your desire and those to whom you are
most attracted may indeed fail to respond in the way you expect. You need to
harness your powerful energies, or even rein them in a little, so that those
with whom you would like to spend time are not overwhelmed by your battle
Aries and Sex
In many ways the excitement is in the chase not the conquest. It isn't that Aries lovers aren't faithful - they are, as long as the excitement of new challenges in love are always there to stimulate them. Aries may appear to want to dominate, but does not want a submissive partner in sex. Routine is what brings boredom to lovemaking for Aries. Aries women may have difficulties in love because she may see her partner as a fellow contestant in the world.
Aries and Partner
The person who contemplates becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Aries must realize that Aries will want to be in control of all the major decisions. He or she will be happy to leave the day to day details to a partner, but will always expect to be in overall control. Given this, the person who partners Aries can expect an exciting, creative relationship with unexpected surprises and plenty of affection.
Aries Man As A Partner
He will want a partner of whom he can be proud, yet who will never do anything better than he can. A clever partner would be wise to be modest about personal abilities and to put effort into supporting and encouraging the sensitive Aries partner in his own dreams.
In marriage, the Aries husband will regard his wife as the queen of his domain and she must behave accordingly, never failing in her loyalty to him and keeping surprises up her sleeve to stimulate his interest.
Aries Woman As A Partner
Like her male counterpart, the Aries partner must always come first. This makes life difficult for the typical Aries wife in a male-dominant situation. She needs a husband who will recognize and accept her powers. A man must have self-respect and tact to partner an Aries woman.
In return, both male and female Aries will bring bountiful energy, enthusiasm, and loyalty to any partnership.
Libra, the scales, is the complementary opposite sign to Aries. Although relationships between Aries and Libra can be difficult, Libra can show Aries how to cooperate, share, and bring people together in harmony. Libra can intervene diplomatically where Aries will bound in and make demands forcibly.
Aries and Friends
In general, Aries likes a friend who is special in some particular way and who will regard Aries as his or her best friend (never the second best!). Aries friends are warm and hospitable but they are not usually interested in entertaining for its own sake; they usually have a reason for inviting friends around. Many Aries prefer to go out to dinner, to find an unusual eating place. Both male and female Aries usually get along better with male friends. For negative Factors -because Aries are very jealous of other peoples abilities and achievements, Aries friendships often don't last very long. However, a person who will admire his or her Aries friend and remain interesting, though not ambitious, can enjoy an enduring friendship with Aries. Aries can become harsh and nasty if his or her fragile ego is under threat.

In terms of sales and
lasting popularity, Elton John was the biggest pop superstar of the early '70s.
He was born Reginald Dwight on March 25, 1947 to a middle-class family living in Pinner, England. Dwight began playing piano at the age of four, and when he was
11, he won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music. After studying for six
years, he left school with the intention of breaking into the music business. In
1961, he joined his first band, Bluesology, and divided his time between playing
with the group, giving solo concerts at a local hotel, and running errands for a
London publishing house. By 1965, Bluesology were backing touring American soul
and R& B musicians like Major Lance, Doris Troy and the Bluebells. By the
summer of 1968, he had begun recording singles for release under his own name.
In the 1960s graffiti appeared on London and New York City streets proclaiming "Clapton is God." For the next 30 years, Eric Clapton (born 1945) forged out a career as an extraordinary guitar player, singer, and songwriter, becoming a musician of legendary proportion. Eric Clapton's musical roots were formed by American blues artists such as Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and Sonny Boy Williamson. During his career, he experimented with many musical forms, including rock, pop, reggae, and even techno-jazz. However, he always seemed to find his way back to his beloved blues where his music is fueled by a life filled with personal struggles and tragedies.
Billie Holiday (1915-1959) was a jazz vocalist with perhaps the most emotional depth of any singer in jazz history. Billie Holiday's life was tragic. Born into out-of-wedlock poverty, she rose to a position of artistic pre-eminence in the world of jazz, but her personal life was one of constant turmoil and struggle. She fought seemingly endless wars--with drug addiction, with narcotics agents' harassment, with racism, with self-serving lovers, and with human parasites in and out of the music business. Withal, her vocal artistry was joyously, bittersweetly transcendant. Many serious listeners consider her the greatest jazz vocalist ever.
Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch painter whose formal distortions and humanistic concerns made him a principal forerunner of 20th-century expressionism. Born on March 30, 1853, at Groot-Zundert in the province of Brabant, Vincent Van Gogh was the son of a Protestant minister. His uncle was a partner in Goupil and Company, art dealers, and Vincent entered the firm at the age of 16 and remained with it for 6 years. He served the firm first in The Hague and then in London, where he fell in love with his landlady's daughter, who rejected him; then he worked for Goupil's branch in Paris.In 1890, van Gogh was invited to show with Les Vingt in Brussels, where he sold his first painting. That same year, he was represented at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. Van Gogh shot himself on July 27, 1890, and died on July 29 in Auvers-sur-Oise, France.
Charles Spencer Chaplin
The film actor, director, and writer Charles Spencer Chaplin (1889-1977) was one of the most original creators in the history of the cinema. His remarkable portrayal of "the tramp"--a sympathetic comic character in ill-fitting clothes and a trademark mustache--won admiration from international audiences. Charlie Chaplin was born in a poor district of London on April 16, 1889. His mother, a talented singer, spent most of her life in and out of mental hospitals; his father was a fairly successful vaudevillian until he began drinking. After his parents separated, Charlie and his half brother, Sidney, spent most of their childhood in the Lambeth Workhouse. Barely able to read and write, Chaplin left school to tour with a group of clog dancers. Later he had the lead in a comedy act; by the age of 19 he had become one of the most popular music-hall performers in England. By the early 1920's Chaplin was making his own films with actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Having control of his own films lead to classics, such as The Kid 1920, The Gold Rush 1925, City Lights 1931, Modern Times 1936 and The Great Dictator 1940. These films made him the most popular and successful film star of his time. In 1952 Chaplin visited Europe and was not allowed to return to the US, he settled in Switzerland. He made a film, The King In New York, in 1957, which was full of criticism of McCarthy and American society in general. He was allowed to return to the US in 1972 to receive an Oscar for his services to film. He died in Switzerland aged 88.
William Wordsworth (1770-1850), an early leader of romanticism in English poetry, ranks as one of the greatest lyric poets in the history of English literature.
He was born in Cumberland, 1770. Visited France in the early years of the revolution, 1790-91. Gained the friendship of Coleridge by the publication of his first poems, and went to live near him in Somersetshire. The friends went on a walking tour, the result of which was "Lyrical Ballads," published in 1798, at Bristol. After a tour in Germany, Wordsworth and his sister lived at Grasmere until 1808, the poet being married in 1802, and "The Prelude" (begun in 1799) being finished in 1805. In 1813 Wordsworth was named distributor of stamps for Westmoreland, and henceforth lived at Rydal Mount. "The Excursion" appeared next year, and in 1815 "The White Doe of Rylstone" was published. Other poems followed, but the whole fragment of "The Recluse" was not published until 1888. In 1843, Wordsworth became poet-laureate. Died 1850.

roles in such classics as On the Waterfront ,A Streetcar Named Desire, and The
