Star signs!


Star signs!
could you tell me what �s correct? Or if both are correct, is there a difference?
I �m Aries.
I am an Aries.
Thanks a lot!

1 st one is correct �cos the whole sentences would be "Im Aries in the zodiac sign"

I would think that -
�I �m Aries � would mean that �I am Aries� as in �I am Tom� and �I am an Aries � would mean
that is my sign.
You could say �my star sign is Aries�.

I would think that both are okay, but I haven �t researched it.   Personally, I usually say: "I´m a Gemini."

Hi, according to the above examples, in my opinion, I am an Aries is the correct one. Since Aries is not an adjective but a countable noun. Therefore, it needs the article.
Here�s a definition taken from the Longman Dictionary:
 Pisces: (C) someone who was born between February 21 and March 20. Example, My husband �s a pisces.
(singular)  the twelfth sign of the zodiac, represented by two fish, and believed to affect the character and life of people born between February 21 and March 20.
 best regards!
