Despite my ongoing (but, thankfully, lessening!) flu, it would be inexcusable of me to fail to mention that with the observance of the Vernal Equinox, the Sun moved into the sign of Aries, making it the New Year of the Zodiac:
Happy Birthday, Aries!
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries is the first one to get things started, initiating projects and leading others. The Ram is adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and full of energy. Arians are pioneers both in thought and action, and are very open to new ideas. Aries loves freedom and absolutely hates feeling controlled.
Aries people often love to walk on the wild side, and even the most mild-mannered ones are likely to have at least one area of their lives where they enjoy picking fights, playing devil’s advocate, or breaking the rules. They welcome challenges and if they don’t have enough, they will create some! Aries people will not be diverted from their purpose except by their own impatience, which can surface if they don’t get quick results.
In their personal relationships Arians are frank, direct and candid, and make enthusiastic and loyal friends. There is no more loving a parent in the zodiac, either. Aries people can be hot tempered, though, overly fond of big drama, and may have a tendency to ride roughshod over the feelings of others. But when Aries learns the knack of patience and pacing, the Aries temperament of willpower and courage can create a life full of impressive achievements.
