Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and is the first member of the Fire Element Triplicity, followed by Leo and Sagittarius. Aries is a Sign of Cardinal Quality or modality and is ruled by Mars.
The Zodiac glyph is the Ram, which is symbolic of daring, bold and pioneering leadership. The glyph can alternately be seen as symbolizing a fountain of lava spewing upward from a volcano, symbolizing raw earth energy in a liquid fire state.
Energetic and enthusiastic about new directions, people born with an Aries Sun Sign are at their best when taking an active lead in exploring new territory, whether literally or figuratively, and championing meaningful causes. Fiercely independent, Aries persons are usually unfettered by what others think of them. Often assertive with chiselled good looks, high fashion is generally less important than an appearance that matches the style of their mood. On the other hand, Aries are known to be trend-setters and can certainly be avante garde.
Aries has energy that acts spontaneously without asking, and can be dominant and forceful to the extent of being considered self-centered and even abrasive. Follow-through and completion of projects are other common issues. Positively, people with a strong emphasis of Aries in their Astrological signature are very original, alert and present and make excellent leaders and guides. Aries can also make exciting and fun-loving companions, ready and willing to embark upon an adventure without delay.
The basic challenges to overcome include self-centeredness and reckless abandon. Aries is about initiative, action, pioneering leadership, authenticity and bold determination.
Researchers, guides, occultists, geologists, geographers, scientists and entrepreneurs are common occupations.
Some famous personalities that aptly depict Aries include:
- David Suzuki – scientist & environmentalist
- Jackie Chan – martial artist & actor
- Sandra Day O’Connor – first female justice on U.S. Supreme Court

A pioneering and revolutionary mood continues. Yet more than outer territory, it is the inner depths that appeal to you now. What you really want is a clear vision, something you can believe in and invest into with confidence. If you have been lead into new territory over the past weeks and even months, then you are already on the right track. The bigger question is: do you trust the process.
Your pioneering spirit has been activated and you mean business. You are determined to enter new territory. Your ambitions are running deep and strong. Nothing less than practical, strategic thinking will satisfy. A definite learning curve is indicated and the course load is hefty. While dreams are inspiring your actions, you want measurable results.
A new dynamic has been activated. It is activating a rebellious determination. Ambition is woven into this frequency. To offset doubts regarding your place in the world you feel the urge to come out kicking and maybe screaming too. Yet, you could just as easily fall back into retreat and surrender. Both can have their advantages. Which one will it be?
Just when you begin to turn a stride into a run, Mercury turns retrograde causing you to slow down again. Whether it is self-confidence or hesitancy due to outer complexities, or both, paying closer attention to the details is likely and probably wise. Measure twice, read the fine print and include an internal cheque to decipher if your inner council agrees with your strategies to advance.
