The Tower
“As an Aries, you believe in Karma, but only because you are the Karma.”

Mars in Aries: Mars is a planet of force and Will, and is known as the God of War. Aries is ruled by Mars and represents individuality, rebelliousness, fearlessness, and high-octane energy. 
Number 16: A second day of pulling a card assigned a “Karmic Debt” number (yesterday’s was the King of Swords). 16 symbolizes destruction of the old to rebuild the new.

Have to chosen to stay in your comfort zone? Do you instinctively know a change is necessary, but are refusing to take the next step? Well, change is a-comin’ – whether you like it or not!*

The Tower is number 16 of the Major Arcana. As opposed to the rest of the Tarot cards (Minor Arcana) which provide you with more options and different ways to do things, with the Major Arcana you have no choice but to deal with whatever the card is throwing at you.

Being an Aries, I stumbled across some humorous (and some sobering) quotes about us Rams of the Zodiac:
“My worst quality is impatience.” – Emma Thompson
“She was a wild, wicked slip of a girl. She burned too bright for this world” – Emily Bronte
“People accuse me of being arrogant all the time. I’m not arrogant, I’m focused.” – Russell Crowe
“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” – Maya Angelou
The dumbest thing you can possibly do is piss off an Aries woman. She will open the gates of Hell and escort your ass right on in, and she will do it with a smile on her face.
Never betray a loyal Aries, you will never what hit you. You may THINK you have fooled an Aries, but they’re just feeding you a little more rope to hang yourself.
Aries gets irritated by people who judge them on matter they have no clue about.
I am the first of the signs. The Queen of the Zodiac. Don’t you ever forget it.
I may not be the nicest person in the world, but at least with me you know where you stand.
They’re not crying because you hurt their feelings, but because you made them angry enough that they could kill you.
You don’t know how many times an Aries has put other people’s needs before their own – and it didn’t get them anywhere.
When an Aries is silent for a long period of time, they’re likely irritate and prefer to keep calm before they explode on you.
True Aries are really stubborn and will ram their horns into a wall multiples – before realizing there’s a wall there.
Aries can be changed by what happens to them, but they refuse to be reduced by it.
If you make an Aries wait for long and expect them to be there when you finally arrive…think again!
I’m an Aries. We’re fucking crazy. Get over it.
It’s funny how Aries females have more balls than men (do).
Something you may not know: They are usually very shy.
Aries after an argument: Regrets their temper but glad they got their point across; may be distant for a little while.
An Aries thinks you should either improve a bad situation or just stop complaining about it.
An Aries does not care what the world thinks of them. They will always do what they think is right.
One of Aries’ biggest struggles is being able to stay calm when they get even slightly frustrated. They may even just be excited, but others will take their excitement as being angry. They have so much energy that it can come out as an explosion.
Within minutes they can go from loving you to hating your existence.

– and my personal favorite:
Aside from their meticulously color-coded calendar, indistinguishable from a meth addict.
