As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries has the responsibility and the joy of making the first move. It marks the beginning of Spring, the start of a new cycle when life is a childlike celebration with sunlight, flowers and fresh air. When I think of Aries, the image of a small, yet fierce plant erupting through the soil towards the atmosphere pops into my mind. Aries is all about enthusiasm, innocence and passion for life, the pure energetic drive that fuels actions and pushes towards unrestrained self-expression.
The Sun is exalted in Aries- the ego revels in this unabashed manifestation of life, individuality and willpower. As an Aries Sun, your best strategy in life is to do as you will. Selfishness can, of course, be a trap, but its healthy variant is also the means through which you initiate, push through obstacles and dart forward, fueled by the energy of what you want to do for yourself. Aries scowls at external authority and feels the need to take the reins of the situation they’re in. If this is impossible, they can find ways to create conflict anyway. The ego here revels in competitive, stimulating situations, from sports contests to love games, and plays to win.
Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war- the archetype of the Warrior or the Pioneer. It’s important to choose your battles well, otherwise you might just be creating crisis for no particular purpose, stemming from a lack of genuine self-affirmation. Bursts of anger, impulsivity, not finishing tasks are just some ways that an Aries can try to cope with a reality where he feels restricted. Taking initiative for yourself, investing your enthusiasm into something constructive that you’re passionate about and facing your fears on the way are all healthy manifestations of the Arian fire.
