April 17 Birthday Astrology

By: Jill M. Phillips

An Aries born on April 17 has an innate understanding of the world around them, and they are always ready for an opportunity that comes their way. They are equally adept at recognizing opportunities for others. When they have an opinion, everyone in their circle is certain to grasp its wisdom.


Friends and Lovers

These individuals can be somewhat intimidating to others, including the people they love. From an early age they tend to select like-minded friends. They do not fall in love heedlessly. They must respect who they love and inevitably choose a partner who embodies their concept of integrity and intelligence.

Children and Family

April 17 natives have a clear image of their place in the family and usually retain close, lifelong ties. Although rather controlling parents, they are unusually fair-minded and are always ready to listen to an explanation.


April 17 individuals can be accident-prone and therefore may experience more than their share of twisted ankles and stubbed toes. They should compensate by taking calcium supplements and practicing weight-bearing exercise. They are finicky eaters and often follow a strict diet because of an aversion to being overweight. Red wine, consumed in moderation, can have a positive effect on their health.

Career and Finances

These men and women will never aspire to something that is beyond their capabilities, but they are willing to sacrifice a great deal to get where they want to go. They are well-suited for the business world but can also distinguish themselves in medicine, science, or police work. If April 17 individuals set their sights on making money, they are likely to succeed. Financial security is important to them.


Dreams and Goals

The goals and expectations of April 17 individuals are in line with their abilities. They have a realistic approach to making their dreams come true. Failure and setbacks only make them more determined to succeed.
