We’ve made it to the eighth instalment of our zodiac monthly series! This blog will be all about the very 1st sign of the zodiac calendar, Aries. If you were born between March 20th and April 19th, this one’s for you. So, to all my wrapping Ram friends, Happy, happy Birthday! Enjoy!
Zodiac Symbol: Ram
Zodiac Element: Fire
Ruling Planet: Mars
Power Color(s): Red
Birth Gem: Aquamarine
Aries is a small but distinctive collection of stars that is located in the northern hemisphere, between the constellation triangles, Perseus, Taurus, Cetus, and Pisces. The symbol of this constellation represents a rams horns which isn’t surprising considering Aries means “the ram” in Latin. The Aries constellation was first cataloged by Ptolemy, a Greek astronomer in the 2nd century. The myth behind Aries derives from the Greek story of Zeus summoning a supernatural Ram to rescue Phrixos, and his sister Helle, from political intrigue. As the two children were about to be sacrificed due to lies told to the king by his wife and oracle, a flying ram took them away just in the nick of time. Unfortunately, Helle died is transport but Phrixos survived the long trip to Colchis where he gave thanks by sacrificing the Ram to Zeus, hanging it in a sacred grove where the fleece turned to gold and the ram lived for eternity in the stars.
Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac and that in itself is symbolic: it is the sign of pioneering leadership. Aries is associated with inspiration, initiation, innovation, boldness, courage, impulsiveness, and spontaneity. Going first, taking the initiative, pushing forward, and pushing through difficulties are all key Aries themes. While we instinctively think of an actual ram when visualizing the Aries symbol, a battering ram can also be portrayed as well. The battering ram is a contraption used to push through and break down an opponent’s defenses which is something Aries are great at. Also, take a look at the Aries glyph, while it resembles a rams horns, it also looks similar to a new budding plant that has just broken through the surface of soil, bursting to life, and ready to take a new journey regardless of the obstacles that stand in its way, all of which are traits Aries are just born with.
As a fire sign, you, my Aries Friend are bold, brash, creative, and daring. Aries is one of three Zodiac signs grouped under the fire element. Since Aries is the very first in the zodiac cycle, you are like a match that lights the blaze. There is no element more prone to destruction or formation than fire. If the energy of this element is considered, conducted and thoughtfully applied (a controlled burn, if you will) there is nothing more powerful. Meditation and breathing exercises can be especially beneficial for you, as it will help to keep your emotions and emotional outburst in check.
The natural placement of Mars in Aries makes for a fiery combo. The red planet governs your temper, sexual appetite, and motivations. The qualities that Mars and Aries possess are working in tandem in your chart to make you the “live-wire” that you are, which is why you are best known for being truly passionate, competitive, and tend to act on instinct or impulsively. Being ruled by the planet of action and war, it makes sense that you exude confidence and are a warrior at heart.
The Sun moves into your sign on the 20th and brings a new beginning for you, as well as, the Spring Equinox! This is a time when you’ll get in touch with your true identity and sense of purpose. The spotlight is on you and your ability to step up to take charge. March will end with a new moon in your sign that aligns with Mercury. This will be the best new moon of the year for you, so it would be worth writing down your intentions and reading through them on a regular basis. As they sink into your subconscious, you’ll find they begin to manifest almost effortlessly. While the Aries season is giving us mostly sunshine and rainbows, there is an off vibe to be aware of on April 14th. This is when Mars will head into dreamy Pisces. The energy may make you feel indecisive in how to move forward with attaining your goals. While it could put a big damper on how you get going the endgame will more than likely be beneficial in the long run if you direct your focus on your original plan of action.
As I previously stated, those that fall under Aries are fiery, passionate, and can be quite stubborn at times. You are natural-born leaders who love adventure and enjoy being independent. With all those traits, it’s no wonder your power color is Red. You thrive when surrounded by this color and it further enhances your passion, courage, and all-around excitement for life. Plus this bold hue is also a great when looking to stir up the creative juices. Try pops of red décor throughout your house or a nice red manicure to help give you a boost when feeling less than par. Just a glance at the fiery shade will help you battle through any obstacle that stands in your way.
