AriesMarch 21 - April 19
Today’s astrologically charged weather encourages us to lay low, meditate, and take frequent breaks from technology — even if that seems counterproductive. With Mars and Uranus energizing the cosmos, power struggles with oneself or others are likely. Aries, allow yourself to cry if you’ve felt overwhelmed recently but have also felt like you have to keep it all together. You really don’t, and releasing the stress, tears and anxieties is exactly what the Universe ordered. The moment you stop feeling like you also have to be a super tough courageous being, you’ll start to notice people and experiences that are ready to support you emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually.
Happy Aquarius season Skymates! Aries, today the Sun leaves the structure-seeking sign of Capricorn to enter the innovative and free-spirited energy of Aquarius. This month will help us to align even more with the energy of the Aquarian Age. It’s time to challenge the status quo, within ourselves, within our families, within our groups, and out in the world. Aries, this is a great time to come up with new ideas on how to get involved with your communities. You’ll be able to bring innovation into your groups of friends and colleagues. Just remember to stay true to yourself and to what you believe, this time isn’t about focusing on impressing people, it’s about being real, inspiring others to do the same, and creatine connections.
Ruling Planet: Mars, the Planet of Action
Where You’ll Find Them: Owning a start-up, winning an athletic competition, and/or skydiving
What They Avoid: Diving into the emotional depths or having to explain themselves
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and they make their mark by letting action and passion take the lead in all that they do. Wherever Aries goes, they do with a sense of purpose and ambition. They are the zodiac’s natural leaders and warriors — always seeking to be #1 and excel. As a Fire Sign, Aries learns through direct experience better than anything else. They have little patience for people or situations that are overly emotional or draining. They’d rather get lost in the fire than have to be overwhelmed by feelings. But eventually, Aries has to face their own emotions, and it’s better done sooner rather than later.
Aries thrives in a career that lets them call the shots and be in positions of leadership. For this reason, many Aries make amazing entrepreneurs. Because Aries is all about action, they also succeed in physical activities such as team sports. Being ruled by Mars, the Planet of Action, Aries is full of energy, and if they don’t find a great outlet for it they can become restless, angry or impulsive. Fortunately, when Aries does get angry (they have a short temper), they aren’t known for holding a grudge like some of the other zodiac signs. They live much more in the now moment than most signs, so they know that holding on to emotions only weighs them down. Still, it’s best not to mess with Aries — they’re fierce competitors and they can intimidate you into submission if they so chose.
As friends, Aries will be the leader of the pack, always finding a new adventure or thrill to experience. Aries can be competitive in friendship though, and this can sometimes cause tension in their relationships. For the most part, it’s all in good fun, and as long as Aries avoids being overly self-centered, they’ll attract fulfilling and exciting friendships. Aries does bore easily, and they seek people who can keep up with their passionate and fiery nature.
As lovers, Aries will at first avoid admitting to their deeper emotions. They crush hard and fall in love easily, but it’s not always for the long-haul. Aries has high standards and is often desired, so it takes them some time to commit. But when an Aries falls in love, they transform into an utter romantic, wooing their lover and treating them differently than everyone else. Just watch out for that infamous Aries temper — it can come out of nowhere and be completely destructive. Aries tends to forgive and forget more easily than the other signs though, and this helps them make amends in love — unless you’ve crossed them one too many times. Then the Aries will move on, without looking back, leaving you in the dust.
