The Zodiac as Merfolk: Aries



March 21 through April 19 is Aries season, and we are ready to talk about our first-ever fire sign. Passionate and determined, these mers are giving us the energy we need to make it through the first quarter of the year!

Did you miss our last one? Learn more about our Pisces merfriends and what mermaid tail matches your zodiac sign.

Aries Mermaid Tails

Arguably the most ambitious and energetic of the zodiac, Aries mermaids are a force to be reckoned with when they set their minds on a goal. But which swimmable mermaid tails can keep up with them? Check out these four fierce tails!

Element: Fire

A fire sign needs an equally fiery tail to reflect their drive and bravery. If you’re an Aries, you aren’t afraid to dive into a project or hobby headfirst (you are the ram, after all) in an effort to come out on top. No one can top your energy, so you have a knack for coming in first in all that you do!

If there’s a tail that fuels your inner fire, it’s our old-school Rio Red Mermaidens tail. These tails were discontinued a while back, but you can have one custom-printed for you as one of our Retro Tails! (Keep in mind that we change out the Retro Tail selection every so often, so it won’t always be available.)

Spirit Color: Red

Because Aries mers are fire signs, their spirit color is, naturally, red. You’re always involved in the action, never wanting to slow down, so you enjoy a good challenge. You don’t mind taking leadership roles as it allows you to take control and accomplish your goals. (Plus, Aries merfolks would much rather give orders than take them!)

You may be thinking, “What? Fin Fun has another red tail?” You better believe it! Embody the first color of the rainbow with the ever-classy Transylvania Nights mermaid tail available in our Halloween section.

Ruling Planet: Mars

With Mars, the God of war, as your ruling planet, it’s no surprise that Aries mermaids sometimes have a tough time managing their tempers, especially if you encounter delays in your progress. However, you’re also warm and friendly to people even if you have differing views.

If you want to reflect the red planet in your mermaid tail for swimming, wear the Fire Dragon mermaid tail with its rugged red and purple scales! It’s another discontinued tail but is available for a limited time in Retro Tails

Lucky Gem: Diamond

As an Aries, your lucky gem is the diamond, which is not only one of the most valuable gems in the world, but it’s also one of the toughest materials ever found. You work hard and you look stylish while doing it because working on your passions makes you glow!

Add some sparkle to your mermaid swim with the Silver Lightning Limited Edition mermaid tail. It glitters in the sunlight like a real gem, and it’s a great way to balance your look if you want to incorporate red into your hair, makeup, accessories, and more.

Burn Bright, Aries Mermaids

To all the Aries merfolks, don’t let anyone put out your fire. We all have our own weaknesses and insecurities, but you have every right to burn bright and be proud of who you are! The zodiac would be incomplete without you.

Stay tuned as we continue to cover the rest of the zodiac and find which mermaid tails fit them best!

    Are fin fun tails washable? like in the washer and dryer? or hand wash and hang dry?

    • Posted by Fin Fun on April 5, 2021 at 8:44 pm

      Here’s what’s on our FAQ page:

      Mermaidens Mermaid Tails, Limited Edition Mermaid Tails, & Coordinating Swimsuits:
      These can be machine washed in a gentle cycle with cool water. After washing, hang and allow to drip-dry.

      Atlantis Mermaid Tails:
      Because of the added fins, Atlantis tails should only be hand washed and hung to air dry. Do not wring or twist, and do not dry clean. Do not use bleach or iron as it may damage the tail design.

      Sparkle Costume Tails & Matching Sparkle Swimsuits:
      Turn your tail inside out and gently hand wash using a mild detergent. Instead of squeezing or rubbing, gently swish the garment through the water. Focus on actual stain spots rather than attempting to wring or rub the entire garment. After rinsing, DO NOT wring out the garment as it can damage the glitter and the spandex fibers. Rinse the garment in cool water and lay flat on a towel. Carefully roll up the towel, squeezing out excess water. Hang and allow to drip-dry.

    I am an Aries and I love these picks for Aries tails! I have always loved Mermaids for as long as I can remember, but have never really told anybody till a few years ago. I told a few of my friends about your tails and they got some of their own! I also have one now! I turned 15 not to long ago and I still love mermaids and my tail!
