P 2011 Zodiac - Aries

P  2011 Zodiac - Aries
Added by Alain Martineau
General Description : From the souvenir sheet of 4 stamps
Gum type: P.V.A.
In 2011, the Aries stamp began the annual Zodiac cycle on the Spring Equinox, March 21, followed in order by Taurus (April 21), Gemini (May 22) and Cancer (June 22.)
This first stamp, in honour of Aries, the Ram, features a stylized ram’s head in the foreground, with the constellation from which it originates in the background. This twinning of imagery will continue on every stamp in the series. Aries is the sign that begins the zodiacal year, and those born under it are thought to be natural leaders, open to new ideas and staunch defenders of freedom of thought.
