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
Recent Horoscopes for this Sun Sign:
Making efforts to secure a lasting harmony on relationship fronts continues. Seeing the beauty in others is easier than usual and you feel inspired to share your thoughts and feelings. Yet this elixir of love has a bitter sweet taste to it. Exercising a philosophical point of view feels right if not necessary to maintain your own center in a healthy manner.
The transit of the lunar nodes over the next 18 months for you implies a re-assertion of your dedication to service. The sooner you can acknowledge this and adjust your attitude as necessary the better. Otherwise you could steadily slip into denial, disillusionment and deep depression. You will be progressively pushed out of any excessive orientations to yourself at the expense of giving more selflessly.
That plunge you took into the deep end a couple of weeks ago still has you immersed. Whether you describe it as a soul searching process or simply a deep investigation, it is hardly a superficial time. Your love life may be your main focus and deciphering how to create harmony there is central. As ever, the real change begins with your own attitude and interpretations.
A busy time complete with a heavy work load continues, but there will be some noticeable shifts this week. This work focus has likely occurred in a variety of areas of your life and both internally as well as without. Sometimes the work occurs on mental and emotional levels and can include soul searching processes. Expect this momentum to continue and to deepen yet.
